I just adore this pretty girl from Staurated Canary and have gone to town with my pretties! Most of my pretties came from the Ribbon Girl and my image has been coloured with promarkers.

Salute her! Sea breeze .

Shamefully late.

I am a bit late with my card for the new challenge over at Di's digi designs, but isn't this image adorable. Di's lovely images are soon to be appearing in rubber , so all you peeps that don't like digi, should soon be able to use Di's lovely images in their rubber form! Way to go! Our challenge this week is weddings/anniversaries. Here's my effort. I used stampin up papers, promarkers and pretties from the ribbon girl. Must dash off I have  a train to catch in under an hour.. Life has been very stressy this week and today is a day of rest, but I have to run!!

Beach wedding card.

My beautiful cousin is getting married on the beach in Cornwall in September and I wanted to make a card that fits the theme. You just can't buy cards like that can you? I know she loves my fussy, fancy, heavy on the " pretties"type creations so I have had to oblige. All my bits and bobs have come from the ribbon girl, love that on line shop! Some of the flowers are from my stash and the papers are Stampin up ones purchased from my lovely friend Diane. I struggled to get this card together, so I hope she likes it. The image was coloured with promarkers. At least she won't have another card like this!
What do you think? I thought I'd enter this in to the Tilda's Town challenge of anything goes.

Chasing my tail.

I have a few snatched minutes before I have to head out for the day. We have a new challenge over at Di's digi designs and this week it's paper piecing. I confess that I love it but it's quite time consuming and so not ideal if you're short on time. Here's my effort anyway and the card for the previous challenge as I was away on my hols when this challenge came out. Images have been coloured with promarkers.
