Had a great evening crafting!!

Last night me and Kerry joined the Craft Box for some craft therapy!!!

Had a lovely night met some lovely ladies and even managed to finish two lovely cards.

Both cards have been created with paper Artsy stamps and Distressed inks.

Loving these flowers which we stamped and scrunched just look fabulous with the flourish.

Just loving this blue card if you look close its shimmers with gold mica and looks amazing.

Just love the soft blue background and the stamp looks just perfect.

Last picture just trying to get the shimmer of the gold!

Had a great time and can't wait for next week as not only am I booked on again but going to Kerry's as it's her turn for the layout!!

Will be back tomorrow with an award I have received from the lovely Doreen which I can tell you I was so honoured to receive! xxxxx

At last we have a decision xxxx

Well this weekend we have managed to make a decision on the Christening Card!!

Rochelle just asked for pink & Aqua, a bit a ribbon, glitter and flowers so here it is.

Just used plain coloured bazzil. My new Baby Tilda which I had bought me for my birthday and only just inked up!! I'm so naughty!!!

Coloured with my copics just hope they hold out for the rest of the images added some glamour dust.

I have used the Nellie C love heart die again as I'm loving it at the moment especially the little cut outs makes it just that extra bit sweet.

Plenty of stickles around the edges and just to finish off the heart and the Christening Invitation was printed from the PC.

Now just have to finish the rest.

Hope you had a great weekend Love Chanelle xxx

Well I am in heaven xxx

Yes that's why I'm in heaven!! I have never seen this paper before in these beautiful colours so last week I had to have them. Both are from Magnolia the background is from Bon Voyage "White weathered wood" and the beautiful flowers are from the wedding range but I have thrown away the bottom of the page!!!

It was our crafty get together at Kerry's and so I bought two sets and the beautiful velvet ribbon while I was at the Craft Box booking us into the "Molly Bloom" class with the designer Claire herself!!!! So excited it will be so much fun!!!

Just look at these yummy flowers I did have some larger flowers at the bottom but before I knew it they had gone as my addiction took over but I think they look amazing especially with the silver stickles in the centres.

This was the first time Tilda with the umbrella has been out to play and she is coloured with copics.

Kerry had these gorgeous sliders that look so elegant and just perfect with the velvet.

Any way we both have more or less the same layout pop over to Kerry to see her finished card which looks so different with the punched flowers we also used the new Nellie C Love Heart & Border dies that really are a must have!!

I am entering this into this weeks challenge over at the Crafts & Me challenge which is monochrome I think this fits the theme!!

Have a great weekend.

Crafting with Kerry xx

Only got around to finishing my card yesterday that I did with Kerry over at A girl who just loves to craft!! We had a right laugh and I did have a few moans but Kerry has a list of essentials to purchase for next week so will let her off!!

Then last night Summer came to stay and boy what an handful she started to crawl last week so it was very hectic and with a 5.30am alarm call from her this morning very tiring but then I wouldn't change her for the world!!!

Here is my card I have inked the edges of the card and papers which are DCWV "Madly in Love" then I found the gorgeous velvet ribbon which matches perfectly (in stash from a toiletry gift never throw anything away!)

The Tilda is Kerry's and is just perfect for Valentines with the gorgeous love jumper and I have coloured her with Kerry's Promarkers which was a first as I have copics but I loved them and so I now have another bad habit!!!

The gorgeous Love Hearts are from a new Nellie C that I had at Christmas and it's so pretty and added with Marianne flowers looks fab.

The sentiments are Magnolia and a bargain find in the sale over at the Glitter Pot and are just perfect.

Added black stickles around all the edges and some small retro punched flowers.

The brads in the middle of the large flowers are from the papermania range which allows you to punch the centre to match the papers and gives a lovely finishing touch with the little bits of bling.

It's Anniversary time and so I thought I would ink up this little beauty that I found at the Nec in November!!! Just adore these really old magnolia's.

Teamed it with Pink Paislee papers called "Queen Bee" found these at Crafty Emma's store some fabulous papers and she still has 15% of until the 15th and some plain bazzils which I have just distressed around the edges.

Coloured my image with copics and added some yellow glitter and glamour dust. I have used some beautiful seam binding and this fabulous Magnolia Wing Die which I have also added glamour dust.

To finish of I have a sentiment from craftwork cards and retro punched flowers with papermania gems for the centre's.
