Happy Birthday ...

Another little Tilda again today for you, for the new challenge at
Passion for Promarkers which is titled
Favourite Colours.  I do vary in my tastes depending on the seasons but my
all time favourite colour is Green with anything, just love it.

I decided on a criss cross card as I hadn't made one for a while.
I have used papers, ribbon, charm, sentiment, flowers, ladybird, lace border
& tag dies.  Completely hand stitched, any dies not listed specifically then
I have cut using my gorgeous Silhouette.

We are sponsored by 

 who have 6 Digi images up for grabs on this challenge, good luck.

Thanks for popping by and your lovely comments
& I hope you have a good day.
Love Jane x

With Love ...

Well finally managed a card using a new stamp from the Special Moments collection 
released earlier this year, she is soooo pretty.

I have used papers, cheesecloth, flowers, ribbon, butterflies,
charm, pearls & shutters.  Sentiment is CG & clay frame.
Hand stitched on all layers and then a touch of Frantage.

There is still time to enter our 'Summer Fun' challenge at

Sw33t 6t33n ...

Well if you popped by my blog yesterday I mentioned it was my Daughters 16th Birthday
and this is the card I made for her special day.
Thank you for all our birthday wishes.

She loves the SC images and they are perfect for teenagers too!
Purchased this digi before Christmas when I first saw it especially for her 16th.
Now I can use it more, just wanted my Daughter to have it first!
This one is called 'Secrets' and I have only printed the girls and replaced
the bunting in the middle with my own.
It was a pretty difficult card to photograph but this is the front and
below is the inside.
This is a full length picture of how the card is displayed.

Plenty of stitching for this one, 10 pieces in total but she is worth it!
I have used papers, flowers, fence, charms, cheesecloth, distress ink, Frantage,
twine, ribbon & pearls.
The clouds, birds including the bird cage, matting & layering, tree
and finally the bunting were all cut on my fabulous Silhouette.

I would like to enter this into the following challenge -
Crafty Catz - Pastel Colours (I Won Top 3)!

Thanks for visiting my blog today and be sure to pop back again soon
for some more inspiration.

Take care

New challenge starts today chosen by lovely teamie Jen at

As soon as I saw this little cutie I had to have it and I knew what I wanted to do.
Really pleased with the finished card, note to self more CAS cards!
So not much in the way of supplies but I have used card blank, sentiment, ribbon, charm & gems.
I have used glossy accents on those cute little wellies!
No stitching this time round, so nice & quick.
