Special Wishes Tilda ...

As you can see I have been playing with this gorgeous Tilda again but this time using a 
white and lemon combination.  
She is sooo gorgeous and I am really looking forward to the new Prince & Princess
collection to arrive!
Onto the recipe;  backing papers are by K&Co 6x6 pad called 'Daisy' which I have 
had for absolutely yonks, even years!  Matted onto Kraft card and hand stitched, for a change.
The dies I have used are Doohickey - Cloud/Bunting & Lace, also Sizzix.
Die-namics rolled daisy for the flower complete with a dew drop centre.
Coloured with Pro & Flex Markers
Butterfly punch from a Create & Craft set of punches, again many moons ago.
Gems & pearls from my stash & finally the free sentiment as my previous post.
Thanks for popping by once again and for all your lovely comments
Take care, Jane x

Special Wishes ...

I have been playing with this Tilda one of many I was lucky enough to receive
from Father Christmas, I must have been a good girl!
Lovely Spring colours to brighten anyones day!
I have used -
Coredinations and Kraft card for the backing papers.
Cheesecloth, garden twine, pearls, heart gem, doily and a button.
The ribbon (recycled) has been pleated and hand stitched.
Picket fence and bunting dies from Doohickey.
The fence was cut from Kraft card and then stained white.
Memory Box die, Serafina Heart.
Flowers and dew drops.
Coloured with Pro/Flex Markers.
The sentiment has been heat embossed white and was from Stamp Doodles
It was free with issue 65 of Papercraft Essentials a while ago.
For my regular followers you will know my most favourite thing on my cards is
the hand stitching and this one is no exception.
I have actually noticed ribbon is another favourite and at the moment
this is my favourite Tilda, well until I ink the next one up that is!
Thanks for popping by my blog today, take care

Together Forever ...

Today I have a card for Valentines Day using this gorgeous stamp from Lili of the Valley.
I have decoupaged the little cuties to make it pop, I think it works.
For this one I have tried out some different flowers using ribbon and a bit of bling!
The sentiment is part of the stamp!
Plenty of hand stitching & a frond punch.
Sizzix decorative accent die.
I would like to enter todays card in the following challenges -
The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop - Anything Goes (I won)!
Happy Crafting

Thanks a bunch ...

Today I have been playing with this little cutie from LOTV  she is called Rosie Posey.   
I have had her a while but I think I have only used her once, so a little neglected.  
Lovely fresh spring colours for this one!
I have used Tulip papers, Papermania cardstock, Die-namics flower die.  I have dug out that butterfly punch
with no name (manufacture label has worn off) again! Anitas gems, pearls from stash, WOC ribbon, 
coloured with Promarkers, and some hand stitching for finish, 
well why change a habit of a lifetime!
Take care, Love Jane x

I love you more than cheese ...... (Joanna Sheen DT Card)

Time for the next challenge over on the Joanna Sheen Blog  and for the month of February 
the challenge is titled 'Love is in the air'.
I have used the gorgeous House Mouse decoupage pack called 'Just the two of us' which is 
jammed packed full of adorable little mice. 
I have taken this image from a wedding sheet and just used the groom for this one!
A few firsts for me on this make, my first decoupage using a Collall glue gel kit, 
my first 6x6 easel card, my first House Mouse decoupage and the first time 
I have used the fabulous Memory Box die called  'Cherised Border' available here.
The sentiment is computer generated as I don't have a stamp for this one?
The paper is from a free cd from a magazine a while back produced by Docrafts.
Still loving my hand stitching so this one has plenty!
Great entries again for January, some fabulous creations from you all and we hope you
can join again this month with fab prizes and blog candy up for grabs.
