An engagement card!!!

Well my daughter and her partner Brett got engaged last week!!

He's had the ring for a while and even though they went away for the night at Valentines he didn't propose to her then as he said she expected it so did it the day after!! lol

She has a beautiful pink Sapphire heart ring which is beautiful.

They even started going to Wedding Fayres at the weekend!!

Here is my engagement card which is my beautiful hAnglar & stAnglars image which I bought at Christmas and have never used.

I have used my copics as I have more colours in these and Bo Bunny papers which are in perfect colours!

Found a lovely diamond ribbon slider which fits beautifully on some pink seam binding and this is sat on some yummy brown lace.

The papers have a gorgeous flourish in the corner which I have highlighted with stickles.

Flowers, brads & pins are from my stash.

Sat the images so they are holding hands and below cut out a lovely heart with my Marianne heart die.

Added some pink Bazzil inside and another of the flourishes.

I am going to enter this into the Just Magnolia & hAnglar & stAnglar Challenge Blog which the theme is LOVE.

Thanks for looking and leaving such lovely comments! Chanelle xxxxx

Forgot to give you an update on Dusty!! She has been back to the Vets again tonight its the third time in six days and has had some blood tests done so hopefully we will know if there is anything serious tomorrow, so tonight we have everything crossed for our little baby!!! xxxx

Sweet Pea Stampers xx

Thought I give the DT call over at The Sweetpea Stampers a go so I hope you have everything crossed for me.

The theme this week is a sketch by Vanessa which I don't normally follow! It's really because when I have the end result it never looks like the original sketch.

Anyway here goes this is the sketch to follow.

Then this is mine.

Mine is sat upon an easel card and in these lovely orange and green colours

The papers are from my large paper stash.

Forgot I'd even got this beautiful sentiment I only found it as while looking to see if I had any for Easter!!! what a bonus! Added a lovely flower with a green glass brad and some pearl bling to finish of the bottom then went around the corners with a salmon pearl viva pen.

Hope you like it! here are some more example of my work with the sweetpea stamps!!

Thanks for looking Chanelle xxxxx

Another Easter Card xx

Well this is my card from Wednesday nights crafting with Kerry!!

Didn't think I was going to make it as my baby "Dusty" was poorly when I arrived home from work and we had to rush her to the vets with a swollen face and being sick!!

After three injections we came home and the swelling went down only to re-appear Friday night in lumps on the top of her head and ears!! We have taken her again to day as it then moved to her tummy and legs and she is now not eating! More injections and tablets she is home but if no better on Monday will have to have an X-ray and blood tests so everything is crossed that it clears up over the weekend!

Back to my card it's another twisted easel loving these at the moment and they are so easy!!

The papers where Kerry's choice Magnolias, she is a little darling as she knew I would love the little daffodils just calling to be cut out!!

The image is Kerry's Magnolia she was very upset at my previous post as mine has the bow!! we bought them when we where together and I'd not even noticed!!
But her's is growing on her now, thank goodness didn't want any tears!!!!

Found these sentiments in my stamp stash and they are just perfect.

The tags and circle are my new Dies from Marianne.

Hope you are all having a great weekend Love Chanelle xxxx

The Challenge this week over at The Crafty Purple Frog is "Magical"

Another hard choice for the image this week as Amy sent some more fabulous designs to us that will be on sale at the Crafty Purple Frog tomorrow!!

This is my choice she is just so delicious and such fabulous colours and perfect for the theme over at The Crafty Purple Frog Challenge!!!.

Just love how she looks in the photo's and I have caught the colours so perfectly.

I have made my background with Tim Holts distress inks and then stamped and embossed some prima butterfly flourishes in some beautiful colours.

I have added two of Tim's corner and some lush seam binding.

A metal tag with believe on and some extra butterfly's from the sheets.

I must admit I was a bit lost with the theme but in the end I must say I love the finished results.

Check out the other DT Blogs some fabulous designs!!!!

Loving my new Promarkers xx

I have been having a little play with my new Pro markers and I must say I love them I seem to be able to get a much softer look with these than my copics!!!

Here is a little Easter card I have made up isn't she just so sweet.

The papers are forever friends Easter papers which I purchased from the Craft Box.

The sentiment & Bow are from the same range and I think they are just so sweet.

I'm off crafting tonight with Kerry for some well deserved therapy!!!

Marianne Stamps xx

Crafty Amy has been so busy with the sponsors of our weekend away in October just look a who is sponsoring us already and its only February I can tell you I'm so excited and can't wait.

I have been busy playing with the images from Marianne designs and I just love them I must say I already have the Christmas images that I purchased at the NEC last November but these ones are so adorable for all occasions all year round you really must check them out!!

I have used the baby image for a friend at work who's Granddaughter has just had a beautiful baby boy so this is perfect!!

I have teamed it together with Nit Wit papers and brown bazzil.

A punched border from EK success and matching blue ribbon.

Some flowers from my stash and a cute charm of some baby's feet which is so adorable and a craft work card sentiment with stickles as always around the edges.

Not much crafting this weekend at the moment I have Summer here for the night as her mum & dad have gone to a hotel to celebrate Valentines so Nan is babysitting for the night!!! She is asleep at the moment so thought I would do a quick post!!!

Well here it is!!!!

Well I can tell you I certainly had an headache with this one!!

My Stepson Nathan is 17 tomorrow and I thought this Kenny K digi was just perfect as he is one for the girls and thinks he's so grown up!!

Coloured with my copics and used this beautiful aqua & cerise pink!! I always rib him about keeping in touch with his feminine side so I know he will love it!!

Sprayed the image with spray and shine from crafters companion in gold really looks fabulous but the pictures don't do it justice.

More pink with these fab Tim Holts hinges and added pearls and a strip of ribbon.

Nathan is actually going into the Army in April and will start his training so he really is grown up!!

Love Chanelle xxxx

A great crafty evening!!

A much needed crafty evening last Tuesday with Kerry at the Craft Box!!

Had a great night with such lovely ladies and plenty of laughs!

This is my second card I made that night but I have shown it first as its my favourite!

We made the card and cut all the pieces before we set to work with the stamps.

The background stamp is a magnolia from the new Valentines collection as is the lovely sentiment!

We stamped the background then sprayed it with mists!

The love heart is done using foils and I love it I must buy some of these as it looks so elegant! Added the lovely thin ribbon and gems!!

The first card is so different a twisted easel! We used another magnolia and some of the new paper range.

When I got home I used some glossy accents on the hearts and it really makes them stand out.

Love this card just love the different shape!

Just sat making my Step-Sons birthday card!! he's 17 this week and I hate boy cards!!!

Hope you have all had a great weekend Love Chanelle xxxxxx

It's Valentines over at The Crafty Purple Frog!!

Can you believe it's nearly Valentines Day!!!

Over at the Crafty Purple Frog it's our theme so I have used some yummy papers from my stash and added the Green Moth Pyramage which you can find here!!!

My beautiful Tim Holts die came just in time for the gorgeous flourishes and added some punched out hearts and Prima flowers to finish.

Lots of stickles around the edges (can't have too much glitz!!!)

The circles are cut with my circle cutter and the sentiment was from PC.

You must pop over and have a look at the gorgeous creations from the DT ladies and check out the great prizes!

I must apologise for being a really bad blogger this week but my baby moved out at the weekend and I have been so sad!!!!!! I know they have to grow up and I have to let go but it's so hard!!!!!!

I did manage some therapy on Tuesday night at the Craft Box with Kerry which was much needed and will post the two beautiful cards we made.

Hope everyone enjoys the rest of the week and roll on Friday!!!!
