My word I am running sooooooooo late xxx

I really am so late but today Summer came back from her holidays and I haven't seen her for two weeks!! I can't tell you how much I have missed her beautiful little face but it was so worth the love I had when she first saw me!!!!!

Anyway this is my DT work for The Crafty Purple Frog Challenge! This week the theme is "Layers" I really enjoyed making this as the new "soon to be released" images are so beautiful well they all are really but just love getting all the new ones!!!

For this challenge my image is Pyramage Silentness and boy is she beautiful I really just need to learn how to take photos or I need a really good editing programme so if any of you have any tips they will be so welcome!!

The ribbon is from my stash and just perfect for these yummy papers.

The papers are Bo-bunny-Peacocks along with purple card.

Love the look of the big pearls placed on the ribbon.

The flowers are from my stash added stickles and punched Martha Stewart Butterfly's to finish off.

Please take a look at my fellow DTs work as as always they are totally awesome!!

Thanks for all your beautiful comments on my previous post!!! It was so worth all the work as Kerry adores it!!!

Hope you are all having a fab week.

Love as always Chanelle xxx

An extra special card xxx

This is the card I made for Kerry's mum to give her! She wanted a special card as she always ends up buying one as Kerry makes all the family cards so here it is!!!

The boutique.

The inside took me a while to decide what to do but in the end I loved it and I know that Kerry did too but most of all so did her Mum!!!

On the main scene I stamped the couch and then paper pieced it in co-ordinateing paper. Stamped the two lovely Tildas and added a bag charm.

My coloured boutigue window which as with all the elements where coloured with my pro markers.

If you noticed one of my tildas is in her underwear just waiting to try on all these beautiful clothes and matching shoes (a girl can never have too many shoes!!)

when I purchased this old magnolia I did wonder what I would do with it and its been sat in my box of magnolias just waiting to adorn the boutique wall!

A closer picture of the girls just how sweet are they.

The papers are from The Craft Box and are just gorgeous its a 12 x 12 book of double sided papers from Panduro - Tilda called Springtime and even if I think so my self ifs just perfect for this card.

Added loads of stickles, liqiod pearls, flowers, die cut flourishes, charms (cosmetic bag, hand bag and the three beautiful coat hangers).

Thanks for looking hope you are all having a fab weekend and thanks for all your lovely comments on my last two posts it means so much to me!!!

I am entering this into:

Die Cut Dreams - Flowers (at least 5)
Crafty Boots Challenge - Things with Wings
Stamp Fairy Challenge - Glitter

Sweet Pea Stampers - Theme "Fall"

Its been a long time since I did a challenge over at Sweet Pea Stampers but I'm so happy to be posting today and a big "Thank You" to my fellow DT for allowing me to stay on the Team!!!!

This week the theme is "Fall" and I must say I really enjoyed making this little card and just love the colours!

My beautiful image is coloured in with Pro Markers and just a little bit of glamour dust you know you can't have enough!

The flowers are all from The Craft Box. Lynn has really gone to town with the new flower range as well as her new ribbons just so lush and so worth a visit! The leaves are an EK Success foliage punch.

Loving the purple & green bazzil just goes so perfectly with the Basic Grey papers.

And finally the finishing touch stickles "perfect".

You must also pop over to the DT girlie's blogs are they is just so much great inspiration going on and the prize is just fab!!!!!

Can't wait to see your entries!

Thanks again for taking the time to look at my work and for your lovely comments.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Love & Hugs

Happy Birthday Kerry xxxx

It's my niece Kerry's birthday today so here is one of the cards I have made for her!!!!

I just love the image and she looks fab in these colours which are my pro markers.

I have put together cream and brown card with Magnolia papers which are just perfect for the image. I have distressed all the edges and inked with DI's.

Loving the flower arrangement down the side just perfect you just can't have enough flowers!! Especially love the bobble pieces but these where my last two and I can't find anything like it anywhere so if anyone knows where I can get anything like it please let me know!!!

The happy Birthday was printed from my computer inked and cut into the little squares which I think looks really effective especially with a Tim Holt's corner piece.

I am going to enter this into:

Simply Magnolia - Shabby Chic
Flutter By Wednesday - Butterfly/Fairy/Angel (Hope this counts)

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post I really appreciate them and I am so glad you have all stayed with me seeing as I am such a bad blogger.

Hello to my new followers and thank you to everyone who looks.

Love & hugs Chanelle xxx
