Sunshine in my Heart ...

It is time for my final Guest card for 'I Love Promarkers' :( and this weeks
challenge is 'Anything Goes' and I figured that the Summer is a distant memory
so I have made a compromise with a little rain and plenty of sunshine in my heart!
I have made an acetate dome card and used Glossy Accents for my rain drops.
A close up picture too.  I have used more fabulous Nitwit this time round the 'In the Meadow' Collection.
I adore gingham had you noticed!  Also Tilda, Promarkers, flowers, charm
ribbon & sentiment.  Matting and layering as always completed on my Silhouette including
the sentiment.  Hand stitched to finish.

Thank you for visiting my blog today and a big thank you goes out to the lovely
Karen for having me on the team this month, loved it.

I would like to enter this into the following challenge -
Wednesday Creative Inspiration - Anything Goes (I Won)!

Happy crafting

Family ...

This weeks challenge at 
Passion for Promarkers is 'Family' 
we want to see your creations using a Letraset product for a family member.
This card is for a friends Nanny's 70th Birthday so perfect for this week.
I purchased during the Summer months some bargain Tildas which you may
have seen over the last few weeks, including this little cutie.

I have used some more gorgeous Nitwit papers on this one, 
this kit is called 'From Laughter to Memories'
the colours are devine don't you think?  The Summer just a distant memory :(

I have used papers, Tilda, flowers & pearls.
The matting & layering and the sentiment tab were cut using my Silhouette.
Completely hand stitched & of course coloured using Promarkers.

Thanks a Bunch ...

Two posts in one day, I am on a roll!
I have been playing with the gorgeous 'Gratitude' kit from Nitwit Collections
such beautiful lilacs & lemons and of course I love my gingham.
Another Tilda but an oldie this time round but she has to be one of my favourites, timeless.
I treated myself to a die last week not something I do much these days as
I have my fabulous Silhouette but I fell in love with these beautiful butterflies.
I must have been having a spend as I also stocked up on my flowers too!
I have also used Gesso, distress, charm, clip, doily, ribbon & postcard.

Thank you for visiting today and welcome to my new followers.
I will be back tomorrow, see you then.

Festive Trimmings ...

Today I would like to share with you the NEW kit from
which I have combined with one of the new release Magnolias called 'Day before Christmas'
Red & green are traditional Christmas colours but this kit also has aqua, not
something I would have put together but as you can see it really works, love it.
Nice & simple layout for this one to show off the papers.
I have scored one of the stars and attached with silicone for extra depth
& yey another Christmas card off the list!

I would like to enter this into the following challenge -
Magnolia-Licious - Holiday Themed (I Won 3rd Place)!

Congratulations ...

Yey its Friday let the weekend begin!
Well already at the midway point for the challenge at 
Today I would like share a card which I made back in the Summer to
celebrate a 25th wedding anniversary.
Clean & simple but so pretty don't you think.
All the cutting, birdies, cage, matting & layering were completed on my Silhouette.
I have used an embossing folder for the background.
Some mirri, charm, gems & ribbon.
The sentiment was also done on my Silhouette using the metallic pens.

Thank you for popping by today, I hope you will come & play
along with us if you haven't already & good luck.

Hoot Hoot Hooray ...

Well as promised I am back today with a card using the NEW Nitwit Collections kit
called 'Hootie Holidays' and as the title suggests it is a Christmas kit but
you will see that it is not just for Christmas!  The inside says 'its your Birthday'.
We all like value for money and try to buy products they don't limit us to just one occasion
and this kit is perfect as I have shown you.
Such a pretty kit and although it contains some super cute owls already and some fab sentiments too
I just had to use this die that I fell in love with sometime ago and hadn't used.
Hand stitched, pearls, ribbon, Kraft & embossing folder.
Another stunning kit from Nitwits I think you will agree and so versatile.

That is all for today, please pop back tomorrow for some 'Sparkle & Shine'?

Happy Birthday ...

First of all I must apologise for the photo quality on this one.  I decided to make a shaker card
as I hadn't made once since, well I can't remember but the light on the acetate made it a little difficult, so sorry.  Marvelous Magnolia are celebrating their 1st Birthday so I dug out Doobeebops Tilda again to join in their celebrations.

I have used some more of the gorgeous Nitwit Collections this one is titled 
'Warm Fuzzies' and it is delightful, as they all are. 
Anyways I have coloured with Promarkers, matting & layering on my Silhouette,
bunting die, acetate, film strip, corner, flowers, pin, bell, charm, twine & heart.
The pearls along with the roses & cherry blossom are from the Hobby House.
All hand stitched and my new little product some Gesso, loving it.

Thank you for visiting my blog today, what do I have in store this week?
Well tomorrow it is MY theme over at Passion for Promarkers & I am really looking
forward to seeing your entries for this one! Wednesday is my second Guest spot over at 
I Love Promarkers, Thursday I will be sharing a card using the new Nitwits kit 
'Hootie Holidays' and Friday I will have a midway reminder for A Little Bit Crafty
so busy busy.
