Rose cake time

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas break. 
Ours was very relaxing. 

I spent a little time at my craft desk whipping up a little birthday card with this sweet Tilda "Rose Cake" from the Boho collection. 
The papers are a bit of mix, as are the die cuts.
The card edge has been punched using a MS punch around the page set. 

Little Tilda has been painted with DIs... yes I still need a lot of practice. She was stamped using Memento Summer Sky ink to give the 'no lines' look.  I've used Archers "Smooth" Watercolour paper.

I really like this stamp. I've always wanted to try a Swedish Princess cake :) 

I am joining the following challenges:

TGIF Friends xx
Just a little unscheduled break from the Christmas cards here today. 
This beautiful stamp is by Unity Stamp Co.

A friend is going through a pretty rough patch right now so I made this card for her. She received it this week so I can finally share it with you all. 

The image is water coloured which I thought was going to be a challenge with that beautiful hair but it turned out better than I expected. 

I hope you like this for a change. 
And now.... I suppose I'd better go back to the never ending pile of Christmas cards ;) 

Have a great weekend

Clean and simple

Happy Saturday everyone xx
This is a something a little different for me - a, it is clean and simple and b. it is a Unity Stamp Co image which I haven't done before.

This stamp was a special I saw over at Unity Stamp Co and thought it was a bit cute, something non traditional and fun. So yep, 'added to cart' hahaha

I've also water coloured it with Distress Ink so it took a little care as I'm not overly confident with the DIs. It was super fun though. 

The image was then cut with a spellbinders frame and mounted on some super lovely ribbed cardstock.  The embellishments are Doo Hickey dies star labels, and some twine. 

I have some more to share next week... still working hard on those Christmas cards ;) 
Have a great weekend xxx

Sitting Mary Christmas

Hi again everyone, I'm still busy working away making Christmas cards here :) 

I have been dying to play with the adorable little scene background from the Doo Hickey club and finally had a chance to put a card together with it. 

I coloured up the cute little Sitting Mary Christmas from So Jolly Collection 2009 to go with it and added quite a few other Doo Hickey cuts to embellish. 

Mary is coloured with Copics and the papers are Maja Design. Sentiment is LOTV. 

Challenges for this card:
