I'm Dreaming of a Pink Christmas ...

Nitwit Collections have a new kit this week and it is called 
'Holiday Bouquet' and I have to say as soon as I saw it I couldn't wait to get started.  
Perfect pairing with Tilda from the new Magnolia range.

Such a pretty collection of digi papers & elements.
I have used charm, ribbon, flowers, buttons, doily, border.
The Magnolia Rosary berries are a perfect match!
Hand stitched and finished off with some Diamond Dust.
I have decorated the inside to match also.

Take care, love

Feeling Blue ...

This week at 
we want to see your 
'Shades of Grey'!
This was a challenge for me as I have never coloured in this way before but 
I am pleasantly surprised with the results.

I have use papers, Tilda, hand stitched, pearls, button & butterfly.
The blue flowers & gorgeous ribbon are from The Ribbon Girl
and were amongst the prize I won back in July to
celebrate the birth of Prince George.

As usual to be in with a chance of winning a prize which this week is from

who have 7 digi stamps up for grabs for the winner, you need to use a 
Letraset product of some type.

Happy Birthday 2 U ...

As promised another new gorgeous kit has been released over at 
and although my card is not tooth themed there is plenty in the kit
to work with, such gorgeous colours.  I would never have put
purple & aqua together but it really works and I am very pleased with
how this card turned out.
The backing paper on my card is white with faint lines on it so I thought
I would hand stitch the lines for extra depth.  It took sometime but worth
the end result don't you think?
Now this little Tilda was part of my spend from my win over at 
Cute Card Thursday when I won a voucher for Bunny Zoes!
So as always coloured with Promarkers and all the matting & layering including
the sentiment were completed on my Silhouette.  I have glittered the balloon too!

Thanks for popping by today, take care

Winter Wonderland ...

Today I want to share my next Nitwit Collections DT card using the
Heavenly Collection, an older kit but so pretty I think you will agree.
On the Silhouette Studio there is a tool to pick colours from the papers
so I have picked the blue for the scalloped circle but don't forget you can also
colour with your coordinating pens too!
Last week I received my first ever Magnolia Stamp Club kit and I am 
thrilled with all the designs and service, I will definately order again.
I couldn't wait to ink this Tilda up first, I have hand stitched, coloured in Promarkers,
matting and layering as always on my Silhouette.  Distressed, pine cone die & border die.
Puff paint for the heart snow balls and I have glittered her hat & gloves too.

Thank you for visiting my blog today and all your lovely messages, I really appreciate it.
Be sure to pop back on Wednesday because I have another card to share using
the new Tooth Fairy kit release this week at Nitwit Collections.

Take care, love
