New 'Anything Goes' Challenge at Ally's Angels

 Hi everyone,

I hope you have had a lovely crafty weekend. Our house renovations are now coming to an end, thank goodness and then it will be time to start on the garden:)

We have a new Anything Goes challenge beginning at Ally's Angels this evening and would love for you to join us.

I must admit I haven't bought any new stamps for quite some time now so have used an old Maggie called Tilda with Big Tuilips which I masked with another oldie Shabby Chic Fence stamp. I have coloured the scene with distress reinkers.

The beautiful swirl underneath the flowers is by Joy Crafts and the gorgeous corner is by Melissa Francis. Everything else is from my own crafty stash.

DI list:

Skin: Vintage photo, tattered rose, worn lipstick

Hair: Walnut stain, antique linen

Clothes: Milled lavender

Tulips: Victorian velvet, seedless preserves, forest moss, shabby shutters

Fence and grass: Hickory smoke, forest moss, shabby shutters

Ally is offering the gorgeous stamp below to the lucky winner:

That's all from me today.

Have a great week.

New Challenge at Creative Inspirations


Good morning everyone,

I hope you all well and having a good week.

Today we have a new challenge beginning at Creative Inspirations and theme for this month is ......

Hoppy Easter/Animals

This month I have made a criss cross card. I haven't got many animal images so I have coloured up an old Maggie called Tilda with Hanging Rabbit. I stamped Tilda onto a spellbinders die cut before colouring her with distress reinkers.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage photo, tattered rose, worn lipstick
Hair: Walnut stain, antique linen
Dress & boots: Victorian velvet, hickory smoke
Rabbit: Hickory smoke, worn lipstick
Grass: Shabby shutters, forest moss

The gorgeous papers are by Maja. The leaves, gate, and card stand have been cut from Joy Crafts dies.  The cute tags are stamps from LOTV which I have stamped and embossed in silver embossing powder.
The ribbon, lace, pearl trim and flowers are from my crafty stash.

The sentiment slides out from the top of the card. I have again used silver embossing powder for the sentiment.

Craft Ribbons are sponsoring us this month. The lucky winner will win all of the beautiful ribbons below:

That's all from me today.

Thank you for popping in.

Happy crafting:)
