Beautiful butterflies

Good morning all.
First time using this die from Spellbinders and I love it.
It is S5-159 Gold lables 4 and cutand embosses beautifully in the big shot.
Oh I may have forgotten to mention that my amazing hubster bought me the Teal big shot starter kit from Ebay along with a tonne ( ok maybe not quite a tonne) of ribbon.
Coloured this amazing image by Kate Powell who has very kindly given her permission for me to use it for my sisters card.
I am hoping Kate will evtually provide them as Rubber or Digi stamps as her work is just amazing.
I have coloured her using Spectrum noir pencils from Crafters Companion.
Colours used are....
Skin - 002,004,006,007,034 and 067 for the eye
Butterflies and bow - 062,063,065,067,074
Hair - 001,008,090,095,096

Butterfly and Roses

Hello from a rather soggy South Coast.
I am sure someone is having a laugh and joke with all this rain.
Told hubby I need my craft area incorporated into the ark he needs to build.
I know I complain a lot when I over heat but surely there is a happy medium lol
This card has been created for this week Allsorts challenge of Roses and is another made using the beautiful Bobunny freebie from Septembers Cardmaking and papercraft.
I think this has been my favourite set of papers since the Forever love ones from Forever friends.
The stamps used are also from the same freebie.
The flowers are from the huge stash the hubster got for me for my birthday.
I am going to hate it when they run out.
Lots of glitter and pink pearls added and a lace ribbon along the bottom.
I am also adding this into a DT call so wish me luck and keep your fingers crossed for me :)
Decided it was time I tried to get back onto a couple now as I really miss it lol
Sorry about the quality of the photo, I can't find my camera charger and had to use the camera on the laptop.
Handy to have but with the lighting so bad due to the weather it takes grainy photos.
Thank you for visiting and I hope your weather is being a little kinder to you where ever you are :)

Quickie for hubby

Morning all.
Just posting the last minute card I made for hubby.
He was over the moon with it.
Dies used are by Marianne.
The idea for the card came from Anne
The card and paper are from my stash and each edge has been distressed using an old nail file.
Coloured the tools with a promarker and Papermania metallics.

paper freebie and Mum with babe

Good morning everyone and welcome to my new followers *waves*
I have a freebie backing paper for you all today.
Just something I was playing around with.
Wanted something for a card I am going to make.
First though I just wanted to show you a quick photo of mum and babe.
Both are doing extremely well.
Kiki is such a good mum and is happy for us to handle babe as well which is wonderful.
Babe is currently called George. Don't ask me why but the hubster said he looks like a George lol
Here is the backing paper.
I have used vintage colours and I hope you like it :)
Very much appreciated and won't cost you a penny.

Mums birthday card

Good morning everyone.
Just wanted to show you the card I made for my Mums birthday in which I am entering into the Allsorts challenge this week.
It was a huge hit thankfully
Had to wait until today as her birthday was yesterday :)
Dies used are MDCR1205 Butterfly by Marianne, S4-462 labels 39 by Spellbinders and Banner Pennants by Whimsy.
The embossing folder is by Sizzix and came with the Bigshot Teal starter kit it is called Dotted Lattice.
I am so in love with this embossing folder and the Marianne butterfly at the moment. It is just stunning and cuts beautifully.
I have used a lot of glitter and pearls for this card as my mum is as mad about sparkle and bling as I am.
Every little dot on the embossing folder is glittered as are the flowers and butterfly.
Shame it can't all be seen in the picture as the effect is just amazing when the light captuers it.

True Friends - GDT card

Wooohooo I can finally show you all my GDT card for winning here at Stamping Sensations.
Not only did I get picked to win an amazing prize (thank you ladies and Tonic Studios)
You can see how I used it here, I couldn't use if for my GDT card because I forgot to add a stamp *doh* lol
Anywhooo I do hope you like what I have created.
I have used Spellbinders Dies S6-005 Elegant Labels four
 and a stamp set by JustRite called Friendship Vintage Lables Seven
which contains 19 clear stamps.
I absolutely love them and can see I will be using them often.
Pearl butterfly and flowers are courtesy of my wonderful hubby
who bought me a joblot of flowers and bling for my birthday.
Isn't he just the best ? I created this coursage using them and added
lots of glitter. Looks a lot better in the flesh (so to speak)
Lace and card forms the ribbon under the sentiment.
All finished off with more glitter and some pink flat back pearls.
Thank you again to all the ladies at Stamping Sensations.
I absolutely love you all to pieces xx
