Lili Of The Valley- Footie Mad

Oh this is going to be a quick post as i'm off out! I just wanted to apologise for my lack of posts recently and commenting :( I am missing your blogs but just don't have the time anymore...

This was a commisioned card a made for a lady at my moms work. I love these Lili Of The Valley cuties- they're perfect for boys, and i'm about to order the adorable new Christmas ones!! :) The lovely papers are my new favourites for males- Cosmo Cricket, Joy Ride. He's been coloured with Promarkers and highlighted with a gel pen. I pricked some holes around the edge with a pin and inked the edges of all the papers in a black Brilliance Dew Drop. All i needed to finish off was some masulin (lol) grey pearls down the side of the image. I know it's simple but i really like it!

Challenges: Allsorts- card for a child, Papertake Weekly- cutie patooti, Pollycraft- Happy Birthday

Sweet Sarah Kay... and summers nearly here!

Hello! The weather has been fantastic recently and i only have 2 more weeks of school left until the holidays!!!! ;) I can't believe it's been a whole year since i started High School!

Todays card features a pretty Sarah Kay with my new Paper Mania "Sumer Bloom" Pad. I've coloured this cutie and her little dog with promarkers. I made up a simple sketch and tada!! The card is done. I'm hoping to sell a few cards in my friends sweet shop soon and i was wondering what prices i should charge...any ideas??

  1. Quixotic Challenges- Pretty Pearls
  2. ABC- You and Me, i thought the girl and her dog were quite fitting!

The gorgeous cherry blossom blooms, small pink roses, pearl pins, papers, image, card and medium to colour are all avalible from Lyndseys fabulous shop in Ashmore Park, Wolverhampton- LORA CRAFTS. I made the little leave smyself from some green paper and a bit of ink and i'm quite pleased with how they turned out!

Well that's all from me for now i'm off to the cinema to see Eclipse- the third in the Twilight Saga... i can't wait!! :)

Crafty Calender Challenge! July! ;)

Hello, well it's the frist friday of the month so time for another Crafty Calender Challenge! This month we have the theme of summer with the added option of yellow as the upcoming summer holidays are not far away, and the weather seemed to be brightening up... before yesterday :( For my card i have used 2 stamps that the lovely Christine sent me... xxx thankyou.

They're both WOJ and i used a new technique- masking! It was a lot easier than i thought but the first time i got them the wrong way round and the stool ended up on top of the girl... ;)

I used some beautiful Basic Grey papers from the Sugar Rush collection, and lot's of beautiful little pearls i bought of Ebay! And the little flat flowers aswell as the gorgeous rose are from Wild Orchid Crafts. A few butterflies to finish it off and it's done!
Thanks for dropping by, don't forget to check out my fellow DT's creations and enter this month challenge! :)
