When I saw this stamp I knew I had to put her on a card. You can get her at Polka Doodles digis. She has some very cute stamps and you can get her here.

I really must stop taking pics at night as the light doesn't do justice to the photos. I was rushing to get this card finished today but had a few interuptions along the way.

She is coloured with copics. I have put liquid pearls around her hair.
I have also put little round spots on the background , just done with copics very light colours.The background papers are a Kaiser craft called Elegance. 

The butterfly just finishes it off nicely.
Colours used were, BG18,13,11,10 And her hair was done with 
E 70,71,74,77 and a little of RV 11 thrown in.
I hope you enjoy seeing this card, and thank you for taking the time to visit with me.

Today I have made a lovely card using an Elizabeth Bell stamp from Whimsy. She is called Bella Sole, collecting daisies. I love these old fashioned girls. Isn't she sweet ?

I have used one of Noor design new dies for the frame. And a memory box die for the big flourish.

A little close up for you of the flowers, which of course come from Wild Orchid Crafts.The little tag is also from Whimsy  but it is a die from a stamps set. I have just made it into a tag. 

Thank you for stopping by to see my cards.

I was up for a bit of a challenge today, so I made this crisscross card. The first one I have done. Don't think I will be making too many of them, they take such a lot of cardstock.! 

Still it is nice for a really special person. 

The light wasn't very good today we had a storm and it came over very dark. Lovely rich plum colours.

This is a Sylvia Zet Wee stamp from Whimsy. The sentiment postage stamps are Whimsy as well. Some lovely flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. I have punched the little lace borders with a Fiskars punch. The cats are a Joy Crafts die The frame for the inside tag is a Tonic die.The background papers I have used I got from Nitwit digital papers, called Flower Shop.  I hope you enjoy seeing this card, and thank you for stopping by.

I saw this new stamp by Sherri Over at the Besties and just had to give it a try. I am still trying to figure out what " Steampunk " is but I think this is IT. I tell you it was a quick card to make as there was no lace and little flowers. I had it in my head before I made the card. I hope you like my first attempt and sure it wont be my last.
I think I am getting old !!!

The frame is a Tonic die.Paper is Kaisercraft called "Hidden Treasures.The feather die cuts are by Crafty Anne.The butterfly was from my stash but I have modifed it a bit !! butterflies dont have Clock hands on them.LOL
I hope you have enjoyed seeing this creation.
You can get this digi here.

I am so naughty not being more regular with posting my cards on my blog. Facebook is a great social media and it is so hard to get followers on her, that I just seem to put them on FB and forget to load them here. So here goes , three cards today. 

First up Elizabeth Bell stamp from Whimsy. I have entered this card over at Elizabeth Bells world challenge blog. Which you can find here.

There is a cherry Lyn die for the big round flourish. A couple of Mariane die flourishes and spellbinders frame. Of course Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. Seam binding ribbon.

Number two card Artbymiran.

Such a pretty little girl. I love her rose. 
I had a lot of comment about the little lace bow on this card. Well you can get it at Joanna Sheen in the UK. It is a Sue Wilson die.
They are great to buy from and are quick to post and free post is offered. 
Spellbinders frame, Tonic flourish and of course Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. ( I am sure I keep them in business ) 
The sentiment is from My Daily Bread. 

Number three. 

I found this digi stamp over at Sweet pea stamps. I couldn't wait to get her on a card. It had my name all over it. 
Her dress is copic colours BG 90,93,95,99  and her hat is RV, 91,93,95,99.

That Sue Wilson bow again and Marriane frame. Cherry lyn at the bottom. Whimsy sentiment and of course Wild Orchid flowers.
Oh I forgot to mention that it will take me a while to recover from cutting and using one of those Pion papers I got from Kim over at Scrappykapers.

Well thats it for today girls. Thanks for stopping by. Please join my blog while you are here.


I have been wanting to give the distress inks a try. Well I thought I knew how do do it, that is until I started. Well to cut a long story short, I wasn't doing so good. So I joined up and bought another Kit and Clowder class on the distress ink colouring. Such a good investment to make. You should all pop over there and check out Alyce's classes. You can find them here.

I bought this cute image from Polkadoodles. 

She is so stinking cute. 
I have used a cherry Lyn die for the frame.And of course flowers from Wild Orchid crafts. The big blue one is their new magnolia flowers.
I have used Antique Linen,aged mahogany,faded blue jeans,tattered rose,and vintage photo. In the distress markers. 


I am so late with this post for my DT card for September. 
But here she is .

I hope you like her.
