A new challenge started today over at the Sugar Bowl.
This is the Sugar Nellie stamps challenge.
I have done this card for the challenge.
She is one of my favourites,as she reminds me so much of my daughter Natasha when she was a little girl x
I chose to go with apricots this time.
I have used a new Spellbinders die for the frame.
Noor design for the big flourish.
The sentiment is a little darlings stamp that I have embossed and put on a tag.
The cream rose button I got from Wild Orchid Crafts along with the flowers.
You can find this stamp in digi at Funky Kits, the home of Sugar Nellie stamps.
Have a peek at the sugar Bowl challenge here.

Hi everyone ...
Well storms have gone now and time for some more cards.
Today I have a card done with another of those
Ching-Chou Kuik images that you can find in her Etsy store.
She is called " Key to my heart "
She is coloured with copics.
I think she is quite elegant looking.
I have cut a lock and heart with spellbinders. The big heart behind the flowers are also spellbinders.
I have added a little bit of silver here and there to this as well.
There is a nice silver flower and a silver key charm.
Added some Viva pearls around the sentiment heart .
The frame is Noor Design.
I hope you like her as much as I do.
Thank you for stopping by .
Till next time xx

Hello all.
We have a very wet day here today , with a cyclone hitting the east coast of us here in Australia.
We are safe at this stage from it, but lots of flooding rain.
A good day for card making at least.
They are looking for some guest design team members  over at " Digi Bells" so I thought I might apply for it.
I adore her stamps and have done lots of cards with her images on them.
I think I was supposed to use a sketch, but I had already coloured up and cut the image and frame before I realised what I had done.
So here goes anyways.
She is called Dragon Fly love. So I have put a big dragon fly on the front.
Coloured with copics. The sentiment I have stamped and embossed on matching paper . From Whimsy.
The frame is from spellbinders. I love their frames.
The vintage flourish is from cherry Lyn.
some bling added and whaalaaa here she is.
Colours used were
RV 91,93,95. E 43,42,41,40. SKIN COLOURS ARE
Thank you for stopping by .
See you soon and thank you so much for all your lovely comments about my cards , and welcome to all the new followers who have joined me . xx Big Hugzz

Hello blog peeps, !!
Today I have a lovely card I have made with a Ching Chou Kuik
stamp I got from her Etsy shop.
She is called " So long yesterday "  I think she is just lovely.

I have coloured her with copics.
I put a little stickles on those wee butterflies.
I used a new Spellbinders die I got this week for the frame. They were called Fleur de elegance .
The butterfly border at the bottom is from Noor design.
I didn't have the little matching single die , so I just cut the border again with matching paper and cut them out single.
Walnut and cream colour  roses to match.
The sentiment is a Little Darlings stamp.

 The gorgeous papers are from Prima called " Time Travelers Memories "

Some nice bling to finish.

Colours used for her dress were ,

E 70,72,74,77.

You can find the digital stamp here.

Hello peeps of the Blog world..
I have done a card for the Paradise of Stamps challenge Blog.
This is my first card as a DT for them.

It is a nice little blog and some good challenges.
I get to make cards with any image I like , and this first time
I have used one of the new LOTV stamps.

I have used distress inks for this card. The theme was " Monochromatic" ( I always have trouble with this theme trying to do everything with one colour )

However I think you get the idea .

The lovely frame is a Paper Artist die.

Lovely paper from Pion.

 The birdcage and tag are those Doohickeys club series dies.

The little sentiment is also from Lilly of the Valley.

Thanks for stopping by

Till next time Keep Crafting BIG HUGZ !!
