Saturated Canary Breeze.

I'm so loving those Saturated Canary images at the mo and I confess I have bought a heap of them over the past few weeks both digi and rubber! This little lady is called Breeze and she has been coloured with promarkers for a change! The backing papers are Christmas ones and the die cuts are all from Magnolia. The sentiment is one from Lili of the Valley.

I am going to enter this card in to the Passion for Promarkers challenge which is ribbon, lace or twine.

Fly free..... Leanne Ellis

I just love these Leanne Ellis stamps and I have managed to acquire quite a few courtesy of a lovely friend in Manchester. There was a bit of a tug of love war with this stamp though as my friend loved it so much that the only condition that I could acquire it from her was that I made her a card using it. It's taken me a while to complete my side of the bargain but this will duly be off in the post in the morning to my friend. I just hope that she likes it!
I have used:
Copics and prisma pencils,
Papermania papers
Off cut of Ribbon
Pin, present from a friend.
Metal butterfly Ribbon girl I think.
Poinsettia die Magnolia doohickey die.
Tim Holtz bird cage die
Walnut stain distress ink
Brad from stash.
Stampin up sentiment stamp
Sewing machine and
A whole lot of love!

Christmas in January!

Well I say it every year and I never seem to take my own advice, but I really do need to start making my Christmas cards earlier! This year I put myself through the shame of buying cards because I didn't have the time to make them all. I didn't enjoy sending bought cards out as I had absolutely no pride in them, but this year 2014 I WILL make them all! Every single one! So to kick start my pile of beauties here we go, starting with the 2013 Magnolia stamp kit stamps! I experimented a bit here...lots of die cutting and distress ink, free papers.....I WILL whittle down that humungous pile of freebie papers! And I WILL have fun along the way!.....just don't chastise me if I fail!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year all my fellow bloggers. I am sorry that I have been absent for so long but life has been chaotic, so much stress! I'm feeling so much more positive as we enter a new year and I hope that you and yours have a fabulous new year and that everything goes well. Here is a new Tilda that I treated myself to over Christmas as the guy in the red suit chose only to give me one crafty present this year! I didn't have time to leave him a letter though with a list of websites so I guess it's my own fault and to be fair the children in our family did get put first and got what they wanted, so that's more important!

Anyway, the lovely purple princess has set a challenge to make something purple. I seem to have made my last three things in this I being converted? I'm a pink kinda girl and love my pastels...what's happening to me?
Have used:
Magnolia stamps:Sakura Tilda and loving wishes.
magnolia dies : peony petals and dragonflies lace
 inkadinkadoo stamps
Cheery Lynn pastry die
Spellbinders dies
Free papers from a magazine.
Stickles crystal glitter glue.
