Deep Ocean Challenge and Midway Reminder for Midweek Magnolia's

Hello everyone how are you all? I'm here with a card for 2 of my DT challenges today, I spent yesterday afternoon at the hospital discussing a new test I have to have but because of my symptoms I've got have a dummy test first to make sure there is less risk of things going wrong.

Anyway without boring you more I will tell you of the challenges. Well we have a brand new challenge over at Deep Ocean & its one of my faves & super easy.........
.............see super easy ;0) Over at Midweek Magnolia's you still have a week left to enter our.........
.........perfect for this time of year ;0)
I have used my most favourite Pion papers, I love this collection that much I always cry a little when cutting it lol. Its called 'My Precious Daughter 6x6' & I've inked all edges & machine sewn as always.

This is the inside before putting something in to write a message on. Isn't the paper just so divine, in the top corner it reads 'My precious daughter a gift of love'.........perfect for any daughter.

I've added gorgeous 'Tulle Pleat Trim' & 'Shabby Ruffle Trim' & added 'Flat Backed Pearl String' along the top.

I made a double bow with 'Shabby Seam Binding' & added a 'Clay Heart' to the centre. I also added an 'Angel Tag' charm under the bow which is just so pretty. I added 'White Gesso' to highlight parts of the charm.

The Magnolia stamp is one from the Zodiac collection which has finally got inked up. This one is 'Pisces Tilda' which has been coloured with Copics & had 'Liquid Pearls' added. 
Colours used are.........
E11, E21, E00, E000, RV21
E59, E37, E35, E33, E31
R85, R83, R81, RV10
E55, E53, E51
BG05, BG01, B00, B000 & White Gel Pen

I've used a Marianne 'Anja's Border' die & Magnolia leaves from the 'Swirl & Leaf' die. All the WOC flowers are from LLC, I also added 'Kort & Godt Rolled Roses' all with added Gesso. The sentiment at the bottom I actually cut from the strip along the bottom of the Pion sheet saying what collection it is, recycling at its best. I distressed the edges & inked them a little, added a 'Seashell' to one side & a Pearl Heart from my stash to the other side.

Well thats it from me but please pop on over to both challenges to see my uber talented teamies.
Thank you so much for stopping by & dont forget to check out my candy.
Hope you can sponsor me for my Race For Life run on 20th July, only a few days left..........I'm getting nervous now.

Take care & tatty bye, enjoy your day

Bunny Zoes Challenges DT Card - Bingo

Hello all you lovely jubbly people around the world, how are you? I had a lovely weekend with my family, went for a bike ride with my eldest on Saturday night, we did over 8 miles.......I was quite pleased with myself. Thank you so much for the encouraging messages you really did put the smile back on my face.........mmwah, you rock!!!

Okie doke so today we have a brand new challenge over at Bunny Zoes & this month our lovely Karina has made a bingo board as the challenge........
Please choose 3 elements from the above Bingo card.  They can be chosen vertically, horizontally or diagonally.  If you are feeling adventurous why not try to incorporate them all!

I felt adventurous & did the whole board, well it is me lol. 
The papers I have used an older Marianne pad, I have inked the edges with walnut & Machine stitched all around them as always. This was the first card I did last week when I got my new sewing machine so some of it is isn't perfect on the zigzag as I wanted to the edging on the top layer.

The bottom lace is from my stash & the top one is an older Marianne lace. The rolled flowers are Kort & Godt. The doily is from Live & Love Crafts.

For the embossing I did both, I added shabby white fran-tage to the Key Charm & I also put the Magnolia's 'Lovely fence' through a Woodgrain embossing folder & then inked it up to distress it & make it look....fencey ;0)

This utterly gorgeous image is of course a Whimsy Stamp image called 'Maya', oh I soooooooo love all images by Sylvia Zet & I've been neglecting them lately :0( This one & the other new I coloured up about 2 weeks ago & really enjoyed colouring them. They are coloured with copics, colours used below.
