Hi Everyone,
This is my second post today, I have been very busy creating a card for Bizzy Bec's Store Blog Challenge for July, Bec and the Team have asked for Borders & Frames for this challenge.
I have used Daisy laying in field she is so lovely, I have made a frame for her with spellbinders label 4.  The DP is from Nit Wits Collections called Noah’s too and is digital paper. I punched out the border with fiskars punch. The flowers are from WOC.  Ribbon and Butterfly are from my stash. I am sorry but I can’t for the life of me remember where I got the circle sentiment.
close upHere’s a close up of daisy in her frame, I have coloured her with copic’s and a little prisma pencils, I like using the pencils for a little blush on the cheeks for that nice soft look.
insideThe inside I decorated to match the front with an area for personal messages.
Copic’s used- E0000, 000, 00 B60,63,66 ,91,93 BV0000, Y00,21,19 YR 0000,000 R20 G24,20

Little Ballerina

Hi Everyone,
Today I have made a card for my sister to give to her 5yr old grand daughter who loves ballet & butterflies, and this Lily of the Valley stamp is just perfect I thought.
Ballerina Girl
She is called Little Ballerina isn’t she adorable, I coloured her using copic’s and added some hot pink kindy glitz for her head gear. I sponged around her with memento angel pink ink while still in the die, the very pretty papers are digital from nit wit collections called butterfly kisses too. LOTV has a challenge this week with the theme Fun & Games I think she certainly looks like she is having both. The die I used on the corners is nellie’s choice and the little ballerina charm both come from Bunny Zoe’s Crafts online store. The lace and pearl trim are from the Craft Queen and the rhinestones are from Kaisercraft, where would we be without those little extra’s.
Inside Here’s a pic of the inside the cute lacy butterfly is also from the Craft Queen, the sentiment is my own creation.
Close up
And here’s a close up of the little sweetie, you can’t see her sparkles very well in the photo, but it looks great IRL, trust me lol.
Copic’s used – R81,83,85 RV0000 G20 YG 03 , E0000,000,00,50,42.
LOTV has a new release coming out on 25th July, and they have teamed up with WOC so there is big celebrations happening, so jump over and check out the fun & games!
Ok that’s it for me today, thanks for visiting, I would like to enter the following challenge

Good Friends

Hi Everyone,
Today I have a card for you with a new stamp of mine, I placed an order with Lily of the Valley stamps and this one is Milly Me and my dog, I think it is cuteness overload!!! What do you think? A Spoon Full of Sugar wants to see Pink & Brown this week and I always love these colours together so I went to work and come up with this…..
Good Friends I used copic’s & prisma pencils to colour the image, the DP is Kaisercraft Chanteuse Collection which was perfect for this colour combo. The Flowers are from WOC and the sentiment is from Gina K Designs. That pretty edge is a Magnolia doo hickey die and I went a little crazy with Kaisercraft pearls, I just love pearls so much I can’t help myself lol. The die with the sentiment is spellbinders fancy labels, and the ribbon is from my stash.

For the inside I made a little pocket for maybe cash or a gift card, I think gift cards are great then the person can buy what they need. I left plenty of room to write a personal message.
Allsorts Challenge Blog are still having there Free & Easy July Challenges so I thought I would enter this card.
I hope you are all having a great Monday and enjoy the rest of the week. Sorry that I havn’t got the colours I used for this one, I must have got side tracked I think and forgot to write them down.

Butterfly Jeans

Hi Everyone,
Before I get started with my card, I just wanted to say a huge hello and thank you to all my new followers, you make it all worth while.
Today I have a Tilda card for you, she is called Tilda in Butterfly Jeans, don’t you just love her hair, so cute! I have coloured her with copics and just a touch of pencils. Unfortunately I don’t have any Magnolia background stamps yet ( did you notice I said YET lol ) soooo I had to create my own background because she looked a little funny sitting there in mid air. The grass was done with copics & pencils and the clouds are sponged in with a great template from Bev Rochester and you can get yours HERE . Totally Tilda Challenge Blog would like to see Distressing this time and that’s just what I did with Antique Linen Distress ink around the image. I followed the sketch by Jane at Just Magnolia & Hanglar Stangler Challenge Blog.
Butterfly Jeans The DP is Prima Botanicals 6x6 pad, and that absolutely gorgeous lace is also from Prima, Cute Card Thursday would like to see Lace this week, and Allsorts Challenge Blog for the month of July it’s Free & Easy theme, with a new challenge and prize each week, how great is that!
The flowers are from WOC and the Butterfly is a spellbinder die, pearls from Kaisercraft.
insideI have finished off the card inside to match the front with another butterfly and the edge is another touch of Magnolia with a border die. I left the card blank so you could use this one for any occasion.
Close upLast photo, I just wanted to give you a close up of the little sweetie.
Ok thanks for visiting me, hope you like my creation.
