From Me To You

Hi Everyone,

Yayyy it's a bank holiday here in the UK and I am in desperate need for some time off work although the boring housework will be calling me today, grrrrr.

It's challenge time at BunnyZoe and the theme this month is "Distress".  I haveused several new dies from the April Marianne Design release, links at the bottom of the page. The image is called "From Me ToYou" by Rachelle AnnMiller, little cuties.



The daisy trim is also by Marianne Design and available at BunnyZoe.

Gone Fishing

Hello Everyone,

Hope you all had a great weekend.  I'm working hard behind the scenes on a few things but I have been hindered by headaches and no sleep this week, don't suppose I helped the situation with a bottle of wine on Friday night, ummmmmm, definitely not the answer.  Oh well roll on Thursday when we look forward to a long bank holiday.

The theme at LLC this week is "Reprint Papers", aren't they gorgeous.  I know Sandy has sold out and has been working on getting re-stocks but I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that 6x6 pads of the Reprint papers will be on their way to the store soon :)

Here's my card using Reprint papers LoveSong and the postcard cut out sheet.  The image is from Pion's A Day In May Image sheet.



I added a tag with the little well pump, sooo darn cute.

The flower arrangement is made up of hortesanias', kort and godt curly roses, flower spray, foam flowers, 30mm wild rose and 20mm rose and a dashing of gesso.

In the top right hand corner is a Prima corner and just at the bottom of the floral bouquet is a clay heart.

You will also notice the Noor Design Border Die, distressed with a sanding block.


On the left hand side I used some of the gorgeous Reinette lace and added a new die cut from Marianne Designs April release     .


The butterflies were cut from the Tim Holtz Butterfly border die and a metal rose added to the centres.


Have a good week.

Saying Hi



Hellooooo Everyone,

It's Sunday and the sun is shining and I don't know why I'm happy as I've only had 4 hours sleep, don't know what's up with me.

It's challenge time over at The Ribbon Girl and the theme is "Anything Goes using a LOTV image". What an excuse to get those cute little stamps out. Here's my guest card using the oh sooo cute bear and I'm a little disappointed with myself as it's not my usual style, but I haven't felt well in myself this week.


I used the new Marianne Design Collectable Letters to spell the word Hi.  It comes with two patterned stamps but on this ocassion I chose to cut the letters out of Maya Design Vintage Autumn Basics paper.  I framed the word using a Prima Resin Frame.



James has been coloured with distress inks and a little shabby white frantage added around the edges.  You can also see a close up of the gorgeous pink braid from The Ribbon Girl which is also available in white.


I added a cute little charm and tied it with some twine and tulle, both from the Ribbon Girl.  All the flowers and the pearl pin are also from the Ribbon Girl.  Full list of ingredients at the bottom of the post.



At the bottom of the flowers I have used a lasercut butterfrom from Dutch Doobadoo, very intricate and delicate.

Beside the Seaside..... beside the sea

Hi Everyone,

Where did the weekend go.... seriously I have been working hard behind the scenes on a couple of projects and I seem to have lost my weekend.....roll on Friday :)  I hope you all got to enjoy the weekend and are ready for a fun filled week of inspiration from the LLC girls.  The theme this week is "Postcards" and I really wanted to use the new reprint ones that Sandy has got in store, they are so vintagey and gorgeous, but I also sooooo wanted to use this image on the new PionDesigns Seashore as it's my Sister's birthday soon and I know for sure she is going to love her, so I'm afraid for this week she won.

Sooooo, you've guessed it I've used the new Pion Design Shoreline Treasures papers and also the vintage postcard from the 12x12 image sheet.  I also cut another postcard from the matching Tags   sheet.


I used the back of the paper to cut the Tim Holtz Butterfly Border and used the script side for the top of the butterflies.  The butterflies on the actual card were cut from my favourtie diecut sheet by Pion Design Studio of Memories cut out sheet as was the little letters to spell "Sister".  I added a metal rose to each of the butterflies on the card.


The floral bouquet on the right is made up of the new gorgeous kort and godt curled roses, foam flowers, the new berries, pearl vintage pin, flower spray,  20mm rose and a 30mm wild rose, a few sprigs of the shabby blossom spray and of course some gesso.


On the top left I I have put together 3 of the kord and godt curly roses.  The tag has  the perfect charm for this card, an oyster with pearl, yummy.  Finished with some vintage seam binding, 3mm and 8mm pearl string and popped into a little envelople concealed under the postcard.


I have added some sea shells, well I had to really didn't I, lol.  These were placed onto some Dutchdoobadoo honeycomb MDF, ooooooo I love this.  A little coating in gesso was also added and I cut out the tickets from the tag sheet also, perfect although you can't see the wave I created with them, hahaha.


I have used Euphoria lace, cheesecloth and also some organza roses with pearl.



I hope you like my card for my Sister :)

Have a good week.
