Some Bunny Loves You xxxx

Summers 3rd Birthday was yesterday and here is the card I made!!! 

 You may think its rather old but she said it was her favourite card but then again I am her Best Friend so didn't expect anything less!!!! lol

Was going to use my new Clown Tilda which I did buy especially but after colouring it I started colouring another image and my little baby came in from the garden and walked on it!!! lol
These gorgeous papers are from Live and Love Crafts and I have had them for a while but I think they are lush!!!  The top sentiment is from SU and used more flowers and pearl bling from stash.

Love you charm is also from Live and Love crafts, Sandy has the most fabulous charms the only problem is picking which ones you want as if your like me I wanted them all.

Decided to use my Ballet Bunny Tilda which I had for Easter and never used she is perfect for my little Angel.  Magnolia Banner where I wrote Summer and lovely Gold Pearl Gems on the background paper also from my stash.

Flowers and Pearl bling is from my stash.

Well had a very stressful day. 

Took Rochelle, Brett and Summer to the airport as they are now in the sunny canaries and on the way back I took a wrong turning, 

Mrs Sat Nav said everything was ok and she carried on telling me the way home!!! 

Well that's what I thought she is now in the bin as she took me an hour out of my way!! lol 

Luckily my Dad went with me but he didn't know where we where either as he's only a back seat driver!!!!!

Anyway I eventually got home popped some pills and went to bed as I had a lovely headache just dreading going back next week.

Well I'm off now I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and the weather is nice and sunny.

Midweek Magnolia - Copy Cat

Well good morning crafter's I'm back with this weeks "Midweek Magnolia Challenge" card where the theme this week is "Copy Cat" needed a little help here hut it simply means copy one of the fabulous DT girls creations so I hope my card doesn't put you off as long as you just follow the layout it could be anything!!!

I did say I'd be back over the weekend but to be honest I am finding getting back into the swing a lot harder than I thought it would be and then on top of that my craft stuff still isn't in proper order and I still have some waiting to be unpacked but where to put it is the question!! lol

Now onto my card as you can see it's from the new "Once Upon A Time" collection "Water Lily" background just love it.

I so enjoyed colouring this image its so beautiful and so versatile and as always its with my Pro Marker's.

Distressed the edges and inked with Vintage Photo then added gold and clear glamour dust with glossy accents on the Lily Pad and bubbles.

Used my Martha Stewart punch which I think is a perfect match.
SU Birthday Sentiment.
Used glass foliage from Magnolia with a lovely punch which I thought looked perfect for around a pond.  Also added another Sentiment from SU.

Beautiful co-ordinated buttons along with Prima papers sorry not sure of the name but I found them whilst looking through my 6 x 6 pads and I can tell you I have a bad paper problem!!! lol.

More photo's of the lovely image and an arty picture below from the side.

Heck of a Challenge  -  Just add water
Magnolia-licious  -  Buttons, Bows or Beads

Now here's my Angel it will be her 3rd Birthday tomorrow how time flies I can still remember the long wait for her to be born as if it was yesterday.  Anyway like most kiddies her age she just loves Mickey and Minnie so Rochelle invited Minnie to the party and boy did she love it!!!!

She is just so grown up and such a treasure to spend time with.

Well I'm off now as going by my normal form the card is waiting to be made!! lol

Remember Me xxxxx

Well at long last I have felt like crafting but I must say this has taken me over a week to make which is very naughty as it was going to be for the Forever Friends challenge blog as Guest Designer but it took me that long to feel like crafting I missed the deadline.

I would like to say that I'm sorry I went AWOL but we have moved again and with all the decorating and packing again the second time in 5 months I just gave up on my crafting.  We have been in our new house now for the last three weeks and things are getting there and I'm loving picking all the new wallpaper and accessories and have posted a few pictures for you below of our new living room.

Well lets get on to my card which is a Forever Friends stamps which as always is coloured with my Pro's.

The yummy papers where a freebie in a magazine and so sweet and vintage looking. The flowers are from Natalie and Amy's and Live and Love Crafts also added some lovely punched leaves.

Loving the new stamp so perfect for the young lady who will be receiving this card I'm sure she will love it!  The image has been cut out with my scalloped nesties and paper pearls added to the scallops.

Close up of the stamp and can you see the glossy accents added to some of the shoes.

Arty view where you can see the lovely butterfly's.

Challenges I am entering are:

Forever Friends  -  Dies and Punches
Cute Card Thursday  -  Butterfly Kisses
Ribbon Girl  -  Add Flowers
Flutterby Wednesday  -  Anything Goes with a Fairy/Butterfly
2 Sisters  -  Anything Goes
Zoe Bunny  -  Favourite Colour Combo

Now a few photo's of my living room where I must say I adore this William Morris wallpaper it just looks superb and so vintage.

Check out the fireplace this was a fabulous find on ebay!!!!  Just needed lots of TLC and still needs gas fire fitting but its just divine and looks lush with the wallpaper.

Well that's it from me for today but I hope to be back again over the weekend with some fabulous new stamps I have purchased off Natalie and Amy's site just so cute and they where calling out to be coloured. 

I would also like to thank everyone for sticking with me I have lost a few followers but seeing as I haven't been around and never gave an explanation I can understand why but I hope that you will all continue to pop by and let me know so I can return the compliment.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Love and Hugs Chanelle xxxx
