Sweet Girl

This is my entry for the challenge at Just Magnolia. Fabulous sketch supplied by JayJay I found this a nice easy sketch to work with. Bazzill cardstock, Basic Grey and SU papers, Roses and feather from local shop. I just had to have this Sweet Tilda image and she is lovely to colour. I think this might be used a lot:) Coloured with Promarkers. Text is SU and their word window punch.

Two challenges in one

Start of a new week and I hope you all had a great weekend. Thanks for visiting my blog. This card is for two challenges. It is for the Anyone for anya challenge and the lili of the valley challenge. I have used the fabulous sketch by Domi . I loved this sketch and I am putting this one in my folder. Thanks Domi. Haven't got any LOTV stamps yet but hope to soon.
The anya challenge was for something not usually done and this card has been coloured with the new Promarkers I bought last week. Just got 10 of them but I love these. I find them easier to control than the copics. Need lessons in blending! Also this Anya stamp is a new one. Papers are SU flowers and buttons from stash. Ribbon from a local shop who sells cake crafting goodies. Got my sewing machine out and stitched around the edge. Ovals cut with Xcut frames. Pearls are SU from pretties kit.
Hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog and I love to read any comments that are left.

Morning blog readers. Hope you all had a good weekend. I have been busy shopping around for new bathroom fixtures and fittings. Wow what a minefield that is. Any way on to todays card for the challenge at Just Magnolia
I loved doing this card. Used my new paper roses and some lovely ribbon that I have had a long time but never used. Image coloured with Distress Inks and cut out with Nestabilities die. Mat corners are a punch from X cut. Sentiment is an old SU one and I used The scallop punch to mat this on. Scallop edge is SU also as is the DP.
Love to read your comments and thanks for visiting.

Movin On

Good Evening people, this card is for the Sir Stampalot challenge and blog hop at Floral Fantasies Super prizes to be won and you have to be in it to win it. I have used my Cricut to cut out the little houses with BG paper and the background paper is from Studio called Spiral Bound. All the letters were cut with QK alphabet on my hand held tool. The moving aspect is the key hanging on the chain. This was the best I could come up with. It was fun to do. You still have time to enter this fun challenge.
Thanks to all who visit and leave me comments. I really do appreciate you taking the time to do this.

Good Morning all. Hope you had a good weekend. I did this card last week but only managed to get a decent photo this morning. I have done this parchment design before but I have changed the colouring and the little fancy cutting corners on this one. Parchment was coloured with Pergamano pencils and then embossed. Then I used a cutting tool to cut out all the plain sections. Edged with a pattern and then cut out with scissors.Whew that's hard on the hands. Plain green parchment behind also edged the same way. Card base is Bazzill cardstock, can't remeber the colour and DP is K & Co. Pearls are from the pretties kit from SU and the little pink and green brads are from Hot off the Press.
As always I am delighted to receive any of your comments. I do appreciate you taking the time to do this. Thank you
