Rochelle's Birthday xx

It's Rochelle's Birthday tomorrow and she will have two weeks left before baby Summer is due!!!
She has been uncomfortable since last week and just can't get comfy, she is also cleaning and moving things around!! when I laughed and told her she was nesting ready for the birth she just gave me one of those looks!! you know which one's I mean!!! lol
Her little tummy is constantly moving and lot's of little bumps are showing, not sure if it's hands or feet but boy it's so cute!!!

Anyway I did the pink Magnolia Ladybug for her Birthday card but she asked for a Betty Boo card!! So after a lot of searching through my stash here it is!!

The paper is from my stash it's Basic Grey "Scarlets Letter" added black bling bazzil and plain red card. The print is one I purchased ages ago and added some glitter and stickles.

To finish off I have used some feathers, large prima flower, gem flowers and small little roses.

Felt flower challenge!!!

This is the layout from Thursday night at the Craft Den!! Had another great night with great company xx We used Brown Bazzil and Bo Bunny "Love Bandit" papers!!

Lynne had brought out all the punches and flowers including these beautiful felt ones which no one was interested in at first!!!

As I had forgot my pictures I did all my cutting out and decided to have a go with the felt!!! Well am I glad I did think it looks fab (even if I say so myself) used a brown ink pad to colour it and then hand sewed round the edges and added some lovely pink beads to the edges of the petal a paper flower in the middle and a pink brad from Lynne xxx

The picture is "Summer" on her 20 week scan!!! Love the leaves framing the picture!!

I am now going to do some crafting to make up for missing todays all day crop at the Craft Den!!! I feel gutted as I love going for the day "It's my therapy" and I need lot's.

Hope you all had a great time and I missed you all!!! xx Enjoy the rest of your weekend xx

Happy Mother's Day!!!

Back to decoupage!! When I saw these "House Mouse" set's from Joanna Sheen I just had to have them!! everyone knows that I love decoupage and this one is just perfect as I love the little "house Mouse" range of stamps!!

Did this beautiful scene and added some glamour dust in places and mounted it onto some Anna Griffin papers that I have had years but the colours are just perfect and relaxing together.

Used my Valentine Lace punch to add the border and these beautiful flowers that I purchased at Lynne's and the beautiful gems then used my branch punch for the leaves.

Added some toning ribbon and the beautiful love heart that was also in the Anna Griffin kit to finish off!!! Love the card and think it's just perfect for my Mum!! xx

Happy Mother's Day xx

A very special card!!

Needed to make a very special card for a friend. Then I remembered "Little Princess Cards" Sarita is always blogging very special cards which I think are so elegant and I remembered the last one was beautiful!! and then it hit me I had the perfect stamp!! It was a Xmas pressie from my friend Lynne "Prima build a swirl"

Stamped the image onto white card and embossed it with silver! I then cut out the aperture with my circle nestie and sat the image around it, used the the cutout for the centre with a larger one in silver and stamped a little touch of the swirl onto it. To finish off I used some beautiful silver flowers and plain white one layered and some pearl brads xxxx

Not my usual card but I think this looks fab!! you must check out Sarita's blog as she also makes the most beautiful flowers xxx

Beautiful Ladybug xxx

Here is my beautiful "Ladybug" from the Craft Den I have coloured loads of these just love it!!

This one I have used original colours Black & Red. The image is coloured in with copics and then I have used rock candy stickles on the hearts & spots.

I have used plain black bazzil with red and black patterned papers I have also used my new Martha Stewart punch which I purchased last week at the Craft Den!! This is a must have "Gorgeous" and I even managed to line it up correctly to make it look like large flowers xx

In the corner I fished out some feathers and added a few flowers and some glass beads wrapped round black Velvet ribbon, stickles, a few gems and a sentiment xx

"Honey Bee" in Pink!!

Coloured in loads of images this weekend!! I love the new magnolia range at the Craft Den with the Honey Bee & Ladybug these are a must. So I thought I'd make up my card with the Honey Bee & Honey Pot but as you have already guessed I have coloured her in with "Pink".

I have used the Bo-Bunny "unforgettable" range and pink dotted swiss. Love these colours and think they go so well together.

I have cut out the honey pot with my oval nestie and sat the Tilda on top she has added glamour dust to her wings and tummy.

Added my flowers and a Bee charm, a lovely spray of glass iridescent flowers and a pin with added beads and loads of stickles xxx
