Used my Tim Holtz Doily edge border my gorgeous magnolia flower die that I have wanted for ever and it was in my prize from Magnolia for winning Midweek Magnolia challenge weeks ago I can tell you the prize was divine and so worth entering our challenge this week its anything but a card so pop over and get some inspiration.
The get well stamp I have had for ages and is just lovely, added some bling and two beautiful ribbons.
As always aside picture I am so please with it just love my colour choice.
Had to show you the middle this is just so perfect and look "Tinkerbell" adding her fairy touch!!

Sunny Days xx

Well I'm back today with a card that I actually coloured with my polychromos  yesterday but never got round to finishing it as I had another one of those days and ended up having an afternoon nap to try to ease the old headache!!!

Anyway what do you think to my colouring I'm quite surprised to say it was my first attempt but I don't think the camera has done the images any justice they look so much better in the flesh.

On the my images I decided to go with the surf look for a hot sunny day on your summer holidays which I don't think we will be seeing this year.
I have used some natural hessian behind the images and I have also used a strand to thread these yummy beads where I have also dangled a beautiful starfish.  For the top to cover the large dollop of glue out came the hessian again and I used two threads to make the bow and to tie it together finally a blue button. 

Tilda with her surfboard looking slightly flushed from the sun or have I overdone the rouge!!!! lol  Added stickle's and glossy accents.
The whole card where you can see the lovely distressed seaside papers which are just perfect for this scene.  Added a pile of shells to the bottom a lovely gift from Anne over at Midweek Magnolia (she sent me some lovely stamped images to play with).
Edwin with his surf board and lots of stickles.
Finally a side view of the card.

Challenges I am entering:

Magnolia Stamp Lovers  -  Distress -  used distress inks around all papers and image
Dutch Magnolia Chickies - Holidays
Magnolia Down Under - Bingo (Charm/Edwin/Sentiment)
Cute Card Thursday - Here comes the sun
Deep Ocean - Summer
Crafts and Me - Anything goes

Well that's my challenges just need to link them up! So then on to catching up with my comments!!  Its all go go go as my granddaughter says!! lol

Will be back tomorrow as Rochelle needed me to sit at her house today while the lock was mended on her front door so I took my Pro's with me, don't know what the man who was doing the job must have thought!!! lol

Thanks to everyone has left me lovely comment on my last post and to my new followers I hope you are enjoying my work.

Another Forever Friend this time an Anniversary card for Kerry to give to her DH of eleven years xxxx

Found this perfect decoupage in my stash (isn't it surprising what you remember you have bought)!!! I just knew one day it would come in handy!! lol

I can tell you she loved it and I just hope David did too!!! lol I did add him the crown so it was more manly although I surrounded it with pink a and red hearts.

The paper are from a 12 x 12 pad from DCWV "Madly in Love" added to red and black card stock.  The key and keyhole are a Tim Holtz die which are just perfect with these papers.  Stamped the sentiment with a tag stamp then some Woodware words.
Love the inside these papers are just so lush and superb patterns!  I found a lovely verse on the internet which I cut out again with a heart die and added some bling.

Side view where you can see I have also used the papers on the back as well and remembered to add my personal stamp!

I have distress the digi with Tim Toltz inks and then added some mega flake with flitter glue then in the flower centers I have used yellow stickles.
The Prima paper is just perfect as its also has wonderful sunflowers on, I have also used this kaisercraft sentiment, some punched flowers and this beautiful vintage postcard stamp all edged with distress inks.
Added some lush lace and a marianne die butterfly with a gem body which looks perfect and here you can also see that I have distressed the paper edges.
Final picture is a side view where you can get the gorgeous shimmer of the flakes.

Pan Pastels - Summertime
Cute Card Thursday - Use punches or drink related

Fathers Day

How lucky was I when I went to my Niece Kerry's for some crafting she had this perfect Forever Friend image and so kingly let me borrow it!!!

I have coloured this image with my Copics as the Red's are much brighter in these than pro markers either that or I'm using the wrong colours!!  lol

Added glossy accents to his little nose which has made it a bit bigger!!! lol also to the teddy on the arch.

Used plain card in Red and black and the main distressed look paper of a sheet from Tim Holtz. 

Did a border around the image and added some gold pearls, some ribbon and buttons to finish.  Can't be added all the flowers and fussy bits can you.

The middle I have inked this perfect Dad sentiment and distressed it.

Delightful Challenge - One for the boys
Fussy and Fancy - Boys/Attitude
DYSU - Boys/men
