L O V E ...

Nitwit Collections have released the most adorable kit titled
and I couldn't wait to have a play with it.
Now I have only used one layer to show off the gorgeous papers but you can see
a selection of the others incorporated in the bunting!
Not forgetting all the other goodies in the kit, plenty to inspire, love it.

I have used Tilda, flower, ribbon, ladybird, buttons, pearls & butterfly.
A little hand stitching, goes without saying.
The 'Love' embellishment was inspired by the paper and quite simply
is six or so layers of cardstock cut out and stuck together, finished off with Gesso.

I am back again tomorrow, see you there.

Celebrate in Style ...

I have been playing with one of my new Tilda's for this card using the gorgeous new kit
from Nitwit Collections called 'Snow Princess'
 As you can see there is no snow to be seen, there are some gorgeous snowflakes papers & embellishments in the kit but there are plenty of non snow papers too, soooo pretty.  Aqua & purple look great together don't they?

Nitwits also have 25% off selected kits including the lovely 'Cottage Charm' kit I used 
on my last post, so why not go and have a browse and spend a few pennies too!

I have used dressing table, sentiment, die, flowers, ribbon, doily, charm, Frantage and some Gesso.
Completely hand stitched and if you want to know what colour I used to match the papers
in the land of Promarkers, well mainly Bluebell, so that will give you an idea of the kit.

Almost the weekend, yey.

Hip Hip Hooray ...

Today at Passion for Promarkers we are launching a new challenge
and this week we want 'Ribbon, Lace & Twine'
and I am so excited to finally share this box card.

As soon as I saw this delightful stamp I new she would look great suspended and
if you can see from the picture below she is also on a wobble spring!
I have stamped the image underneath for extra depth.  I have used springs
in the past but only just discovered these fabulous wobble springs, they are plastic
so don't loose there shape and have clear adhesive, perfect, really pleased with it.

Enough of my excitement to share, I have used papers, lace frame, sentiment is CG, banner, flowers,
butterflies, ribbon, twine, charm, pearls & gems.

Just to Say ...

Today is the start of our first challenge of the year over at

Time to thank family & friends for the lovely Christmas gifts so I chose Tilda
and took my inspiration from the lovely Jen  for this one.

I have used a Kraft card blank, some old red cardstock from my stash for the layering.
white cardstock.  Sentiment is CG and hand stitched.
Some bakers twine, little bell and a charm cut on my Silhouette and then enameled. 
If you look very closely little Tilda has a diamond earring!
