A Little Request...

Hi Everyone,

Sorry i don't mean to be cheeky... but could anybody be kind enough to do an image swap with me??? I'm really looking for some magnolia images, as i don't own any of their stamps, ( at the moment!! ) and some whiff of joy. But any images would be greatly appreciated.

I've got some images to swap including lots of SN, some Lili Of The Valley, lots of TGF, a few Stampavie, and some Wild Rose Studio, i also have some Lady-Bug Crafts Ink aswell as Penny Black.

I'd love to hear from you if you can help! :D

Lady-Bug Crafts Ink

Hi Everyone,
Hope your all enjoying the weekend so far... i know i am! I've been having a play with some of the new Lady-Bug Crafts Ink stamps. They're fabulous!!
I just love this one, pampering herself in the mirror and the expressions on their faces is soooo cute! :D

I went for a soft pink and powder blue colour scheme on this card it's for a 9 year old so i though pastel colours would be best.
Again, i've kept the embellishments to a minimum as i think the image speaks for itself. So just some pretty lace, ribbon and pearls look subtle.

Here are the challenges i've managed to fit this card into:
  1. Stamp Something- Girly
  2. Creative Card Crew- Celebrations
  3. Simon Says Stamp Challenge- Girly
  4. Creative Inspirations- Lace, pearls.
Hope these all count! :D

Here's a close-up of the gorgeous image:

I managed to note down the pro-markers i used:
  • Blush
  • Dusty Pink
  • Powder blue
  • Pastel Pink
  • Pink Carnation
  • Cinamon
  • Coco
  • Vanilla
  • Buttercup
Well, thanks for visiting me today, i really appreciate all your kind comments!!
