MDUC - Pink and Lime

Hi there friends,
We have a new challenge up at MDUC today - a colour challenge - PINK and LIME.
I decided to get out an oldie but a goodie for the challenge:

Ladybug Tilda is from Raising the Ceiling & Right Through my Heart collections from 2010. Isn't she adorable?  She would have to be in my top 10. 

The papers are old Memory Box as is the pretty die cut at the top. 
The flowers are both Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima
The crystal string is from The Ribbon Girl
The pretty ornate frame behind Tilda is by Marianne Creatables. 

I hope you have a chance to come along and play with our zesty colour combo.

The Ribbon Girl - Guest DT - Colour Challenge

Hi friends,
I was really so very lucky to be asked recently if I could be a Guest DT for The Ribbon Girl's February colour challenge.  Of course I said yes!
Thank you so much Mary and Andrea for inviting me along to play this week. It is certainly an honour.
The challenge is TURQUOISE or AQUA.  I have loaded my card with so many goodies from The Ribbon Girl - Berries, Velvet lace, Sparkle bead string, diamanté button, rolled paper roses, crystal stems

Yep - lots and lots of fabulous goodies!!
The stamp is by Magnolia - it is from the With Love collection - Bakes with Love and the Chocolat accessory stamps.

The paper is The Girls Paperie - I really wish I'd bought more of this gorgeous paper as I think it is no longer available. The shape of the card was cut with a Go Kreate die. The bird cage and bird are from a Spellbinders set.

Yep - lots going on with this card but I was really happy with how it turned out.
Please check out the challenge over at The Ribbon Girl this week, you will not be disappointed!!
Thanks for stopping by,
Hugs x

The Sketchy Challenges - Cordines Sketch

It is Sketchy Challenges time again!
This time we have a fabulous sketch by Cordine to play with.
Cordine lined up an amazing sponsor - Saturated Canary for her challenge. Thanks so much Krista!
I was lucky enough to play with Violet Vintage. She is such a little cutie - but aren't all of Krista's images??
Here is my card with Cordie's sketch.... the papers are Basic Grey.

The amazing rusty bells, twine and frosted berries are from The Ribbon Girl.
The gorgeous mulberry paper roses, vintage pin and pearl hearts are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Just some close ups of the detail.
The sentiment and postage stamps are both Magnolia.

I hope you get a chance to come and play with Cordie's sketch this fortnight. Its a great one to used your own interpretation - the DT have each done something slightly different, it was really great to see the variations on the sketch.
I have something else to share tomorrow so I'll be back then.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Doo Bee Pops!

Hi there friends,
I am back again with something quite cute to share with you today.
Have you seen Magnolia's new Doo Bee Pops? They are vintage honeycomb paper.  The DT was sent some to have a little play with. OMG - these girls are super talented!! Make sure you check out the fantastic stuff they've come up with. 

I thought it was timely to make some Easter decorations and made some paper eggs to decorate. 

This adorable little Tilda is a newbie from the Little Easter collection, she is Happy Easter Tilda. Its such a cute collection, lots of lovely new stamps to choose from. 

So... a little bit of a funny story to go with my Doo Bee Pop eggs.... I needed some assistance from my hubby to get some photos of them... and well... he SAT on one of them! OMG. I didnt know whether I should cry, throw a tanty, or what. I ended up just laughing. The poor bugger, hehehe. He has had a huge day at our new house site pouring the concrete slab, he is exhausted. So I am really not surprised he didnt see where he was sitting! 

This one is decorated with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts

Both eggs have tags and sentiments on them

The pretty lace is from Magnolia.

And finally - 

my Hubby in the middle of the slab pour this morning. What a massive job. My father in law is the brains behind the project, organising all the tradies and making sure everything happens as it is supposed to. It is all so exciting and we're really lucky to have this opportunity. The kids are having a ball watching the house come out of the ground. 

Well... that is it from me today. I will be back on the weekend.
Until then, 
Hugs x

Bright and cheery

Hi everyone, 
I have a bright and cheery card to share with you today. 

The stamp is one of Magnolia's from the With Love collection - Bouquets of Love

I just love the peonies and for some reason I was compelled to colour the vases in bright orange. 

Here is the entire card. The papers are Lilly bee. 

The gorgeous Ribbon, button, rolled paper flowers and aqua lace are from The Ribbon Girl. Pretty huh?
The lovely paper doily and mulberry paper flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

well... thats it from me today. I will be back on the weekend with some more. 
It has been a bit of a tough day for me so I will head off now and relax for a bit. 
See you soon xx

The Sketchy Challenges - my Sketch!

Yay! It is the weekend again. 
We have had an extra exciting week this week. My eldest started Kindy. He was so brave and looked absolutely adorable in his school uniform. We are all very proud of him with his big smile. 

Today we have our next challenge go live at The Sketchy Challenges. This time it is my turn to host.

This is TIlda with Love Cake from the new With Love collection.  The papers are also Magnolia. 
I'm sorry there is a white splodge on little Tilda's face! With all of the heat, my white paint pen isn't coping so well and it decided to leak all over my image after I'd finished the card.  I haven't had a chance to fix it but will do that before I give the card away. It looks much worse in the photo than I thought it would.

The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts
The lace and twine if from The Ribbon Girl
Magnolia stamp and papers from The Crafty Witch.

I hope you get a chance to play at The Sketchy Challenges.

I'd like to enter some challenges myself this week....

I will be back tomorrow with something else to share,
until then - Hugs x
