Good Morning All!!
Well ... I'm off out to lunch in a bit with my hubby and daughter ... mmmm yummy!! But before I go I thought I'd share with you a card I made a while ago
I fancied "doing a bit of distressing" lol

This cutie is a Bildmalarna stamp and is available at my online shop CRAFTS 4 YOU and I've coloured her with Promarkers, I've distressed the edges of everything with either a paper edge distresser, distress inks or a sanding block.  I made the corners from a Martha Stewart corner punch from a PATP set.  The sentiment is one of mine from my clear stamp design range which you can find HERE.  I also stock the doilies .. available in two sizes .. HERE and the paper edge distress available HERE
Hope you likey and catch up with you all soon :)

Evening All
Hope you are all well and had a good day :)
I've spent the day making baby cards for my daughter's future sister-in-law who had a baby girl this morning ..... sooooo cute!!!
Anyway ... not a baby card to show you but do you remember a few days ago I showed you how naughty I had been buying all those Lili of the Valley stamps ?? Well I inked a few up and got colouring and here is my very first Christmas card for this year .... Yay!!!! Go Me !!!!!!

These cuties are THREE LITTLE ANGELS and I've coloured them with Copics and lyra polycolour pencils, cut out using nesties and inked, added some gold stars and gems and there you go :)
Oh and the sentiment is one of mine from a set of 6 digi downloads ... CHRISTMAS LINES available at my shop CRAFTS 4 YOU ... I printed it onto Letraset Safmat which is a transparent medium - I then cut it out very close to the sentiment and stuck it straight onto the DP ... it is then practically invisible ... it's fab!! you can get hold of it from EWE 2 CAN CRAFT
Hope you likey :) and thanks for stopping by ... catch up with you soon :)

Afternoon all :)
I'm busy decorating the hallway at the moment but just stopped for a breather ... so I thought I'd let you know that I'm sponsoring the TOTALLY TILDA CHALLENGE this time around from my shop CRAFTS 4 YOU
I made this card a while ago for one of my hubby's work colleagues who was getting married and it was meant to be my DT card for this challenge ... I know I'm not on the DT anymore but thought I'd post it anyway :) ... I miss you guys!!!!

I've coloured Tilda and Edwin with Aquamarkers and distressed all the edges, the script is a Magnolia stamp "Valentine Letter".  The sentiment is one of mine from a set of 6 digi downloads YOUR SPECIAL DAY which is available at my store.  I've embellished with pearls, lace and a heart charm
Hope you likey :)
Oh well .......... back to the decorating I suppose ....

Morning All
Hope you are all well .... weather is not too good here so I'm gonna ink up my new stamps today and do some colouring .... nice & peaceful here .... my daughter is at work, my son is holed up in his bedroom on his X Box and hubby has gone to football :)
Before I get started I thought I'd share with you a card I made a few weeks ago for my hubby to give to one of his team members as a thank you :)

I've used a Teddy Bea image which is fab as the circle is empty so you can pop a sentiment into it and coloured with Promarkers, added pearls and a seam binding bow to a simple layout
Hope you likey :)
I'm off now to do some colouring ... catch up with you all soon
