House Mouse Anniversary xxx

Anyway this card was for my Niece Kerry and her Hubby Martin for there 4th Wedding Anniversary its unbelievable that it was that long ago I remember it as if it was yesterday.    .
I have always wanted this divine image and was determined to use it.  As always I have used my Pro Markers to colour and added lots of stickles.
Really pleased with my finished creation as they are very limited lately.
Lots of dies and punches came out for this beauty.
Found a lovely couple and a number four from my charm stash.
These fab little flowers with added stickles look lovely with punched foliage and bling.
Perfect Sentiment.
Anyway I love it and in the end coloured the image to match these wonderful papers and was soooo please.

Back in my craft room xx

Well at last I've been able to go back in to my craft room and here is my first card now I can actually find my stash and its actually all in the correct place so I'm a happy Bunny!!
Life has had so many ups and downs these last few months well to be honest the last four years but I have stopped counting but I am hopeful things are getting back to some normality if there is such a thing.  Over the last few months I've also had the carpel tunnel done in both my hands which has been very restricting and is still quite painful but hopefully will mean in the end no more pain when colouring!!!!!!! lol 
Anyway on to my card as you can see it's a Thank You card and is for my Sister-in-Law's Mum and Dad who gave my the gorgeous clock below which I love and will treasure always.
My fabulous new House Mouse stamp which I purchased from Ebay was so lucky found some amazing designs that I had never seen before.
Here is my beautiful clock which is just fabulous and fits in with my decor just perfectly.
Close up of the stamp which is called Eek Eek Eek!!!!! The sentiment stamp is from SU. 
House Mouse and Friends have from this month started with the option of the current theme which is Sunny Days but now you can join in with Anything Goes.
As always I have coloured in with my Pro Markers added lots of glamour dust and viva pearls.
This divine paper is from The Craft Box at Elsecar I hadn't been for months and my Niece Kerry took me as we where both desperate for a craft fix mine really was "A Paper Fix" lol xx
Flowers as always and the perfect co-ordinated "Thank You" ribbon.

Side Shot.
Another ebay purchase which I had to have stamped onto white card then inked with Tim Holtz ink pads.
The inside I have added another SU sentiment.

Gruffies and Guests - CH#5  -  Anything goes with the option of Spring

Happy 30th Anniversary x

This is so different for me and I'm loving the change I think its been good for my mojo!!!!
Yesterday was My Husband's Brother and Sister in Law's 30th Wedding Anniversary and this is the card I made from Her Mum and Dad

This Rose stamp is new and its from PSX which I love at the moment I wanted it to be more special so decided to do the monochrome look which I must say looked fabulous in the flesh.

Coloured with my Pro Markers and added a few layers to the flowers with added glamour dust.

This picture is the only one which gives the true colours and the lovely Graphic45 Paper which I added to different co-ordinating card. 

My craft supplies are in more of a mess than before as my youngest daughter is back with us and so that she felt welcome I have moved lots of my stash from her room which looks lovely but not my cubby hole that looks like a bombs hit but if it means she's safe here at home that's fine with me.

The front panel has been chopped and the image is mounted on a square which is stood off which doesn't really show on my pictures.
Found my Anniversary sentiment and Pearl Wedding I also looked it up and the modern pressie is Diamond so added some bling gems next to my lovely pearls.
I know that Cindy and her Mum loved the card so I'm so glad I went for this look.

Divas by Design  -  Add Ribbon

A very late "Happy New Year"

Happy New Year to all you lovely Crafter's out there!!!!!
I'm hoping this year will be full of crafting as last year was very quiet for me here on my poor little blog which has been so neglected.
I did set off with such good intentions but after making loads of card designs and colouring loads of images I was so stressed when I realised I had no cards to attach them too!!!!!!!!!!! So in the end I had eight cards four of which where an order!!!!!!! so bad 
On the plus side great for next year!!
Well on to my card it was for my Mum and Dad and my favourite House Mouse Christmas image which as always is coloured with my Pro Markers.
The challenge over at House Mouse was Gold or Silver and was a month long challenge over Christmas and I'm just in time before it closes. 
I love the colour of the poinsettia looked so lush in the flesh and perfect with the added glamour dust.
Think this would have looked better on a white sheet of paper to take the picture but too late now.
Love the papers but not sure what they are as from my large paper stash.
Added the little bells to the flowers which where a must have as I made a mess with some alphabet stamps and they needed covering.
Added lush gold and red ribbon with added star trim which is so perfect.
To finish the design I used my Doo Hickey Magnolia Poinsettia die added with stickles and lots of yummy berries.
Well I love it and even though I felt sad that I didn't manage many more I know I'm well on the way for next years!! lol
Challenges I am entering are:
House Mouse & Friends  -  Gold or Silver
(NEW)Gruffies and Guests  -  Anything Goes
(NEW)Fun Christmas Challenge   -  Anything Goes
Christmas Cards All Year Round  -  Anything Goes

Going to try some colouring this afternoon as I've sent my daughter to Hobby Craft!!!! lol for basic Pro's as I've sent them dry with all my Christmas images.
Hope you are all having a lovely week and best wishes for 2014!!!!
Thanks again for sticking with me hope to be back soon.

Magnolia Christening Card

Not done much crafting again but in my defence my Granddaughter has been here for a couple of days in the week and yesterday she slept over for our usual sleep over where she gets up at the crack of dawn and we end up watching TV and doing jigsaws from half seven and even though we have a pile its amazing how many times you can do the same one!!!! lol
Well today I am sharing with you the Christening card I did for my SIL to give her daughter Kerry my beautiful Niece and hubby Martin on Ruby's Christening Day.

Found one of my favourite old Magnolia's which I coloured in with my Pro Markers to match this lush paper from pion which I purchased ages ago from Live and Love Crafts.

I added stickles and pearls around the card and found this beautiful ribbon slider in my stash.

Had a relaxing time cutting out the flowers from my second sheet for the beautiful display of flowers.

A side view I'm just sad that my pictures are not showing the beautiful colours.

Added extra flowers again lots of stickles and pearls which I also added to frame the main image with my lovely new ribbon.
