Tilda with Two Rosettes

Hello everyone,

Yay it's the weekend, I hope you all had a good week. I am so excited as I am going to the Make It Show at Farnborough tomorrow. I have been saving my pennies and hope to  buy some new Copics to add to my ever expanding collection. Hopefully I will have some money left to buy one or two goodies too! 

The good news is my computer is fixed at last. My anit virus software wasn't working particularly well and I had picked up a virus grrr!

I thought I would share a card I made a little while ago. I made a little scene using Tilda with Two Rosettes, Summer Wedding Tilda  and Flower Wall Post. The scene was coloured using   Copics and Prisma Pencils. I also stamped and coloured a couple of butterflies from the Butterfly kit. The dies I used on this card are Magnolia Doohickey Wrapped So Lovely and Go Kreate Large Frame Frilly #6. The flowers, lace, clock face and ribbon are from my stash.

Little Darlings - Glass Slipper

Good morning my lovelies,

I hope you are having a lovely weekend, at long last the rain has stopped and we have had a couple of sunny days.

Well I have a wonderful week off, but all too soon it comes to an end and I am back to work tomorrow grrr, I wish that lottery win would hurry up!!

I am still having computer problems, I keep jumping onto Phil's machine to leave comments, but my son is coming over this afternoon and I am hoping he will be able to solve the problem, if he can't then I am well and truly scuppered. 

Anyway, enough of my rambling,  I thought I would share I card I made in the week. Father Christmas bought me this Little Darlings stamp and this is the first time I have had a chance to colour her. This little beauty is called Glass Slipper. She has been coloured with Copics and Prisma Pencils. I have cut the shape using a Go Kreate die, Large Frame Frilly #6. She has been stamped onto a Spellbinders die, Opulent Ovals and oops the Frantage is back out again, but I have only added a few sprinkles.  The paper is by Maja from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection. The beautiful branches are cut from a Joy die. I found a sweet shoe charm in my stash which I thought would just finish the card of nicely. The white flower sprays are from Live and Love Crafts and the rest of the flowers lace, and ribbon are from my stash. 


Copics I used:
Skin: E21, 00, 000, 0000, R20
Hair: E49, 57, 53, 50
Dress.,Shoes and Headband: B99, 97, 95, 93, 91
Background: W5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0, 00

Pencils: Black, Burnt Ochre, Dark Umber

Thank you for popping in and for all the lovely comments you leave me, it is so appreciated.

I hope to be back later to share some photos of my craft room.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Tilda Binding Flowers

Hello my lovelies,

Hope you are having a lovely week. I have have completely moved into my craft room now and am loving it. Pictures will follow.

We have a new challenge at Marvelous Magnolia today and it is the ever popular 'Anything Goes'. 

I've coloured up Tilda Binding Flowers using Copics and Prisma Pencils. The papers are Maja (not that you can really see them).  The shape has been cut using a Go Kreate die,  Flower #1 and the two smaller dies are Magnolia Doohickey So Wrapped Lovely and La La Land Heart Banner die. The flowers are a mixture from WOC and the Ribbon Girls. Just below the rose on the left hand is a bronze envelope charm, which is so sweet and on the top of the bow is a little pink cameo.


Copics list:
Skin: E21, 00, 000, 0000, R20

We have four fabulous sponsors this time:

If you have a chance pop over and have a peep at my teamies creations, they are gorgeous and it would be lovely to have you join us in this challenge.

I am having big problems with my computer at the moment, I cannot see images or if I can they are sometimes distorted, so apologies if I haven't commented on your posts, I am trying to sort the problem, but getting nowhere fast.

Thank you for popping in and a crafty wave to my new followers.

Take care,
Hugs
