Anything Goes

Isn't she gorgeous!!!! 
She is coloured with Copics and I've blended warm grey 3 into the skin, hair and dress, to add a slightly more distressed effect and shadow.

My papers are again craft and you and behind the image, I have used some cheese cloth that I have dyed pink! 

The baby pink seam binding was dyed by hand and I have created a double heart bow, tied with natural hemp twine and used a little princess crown charm.

The gorgeous roses are of course WOC and the pearl and lace trims are from my own stash of crafty goodies he he!!!

A closer look at the cutie!!!
Loving this chipboard wording too!

These are the two tags, that you can see peeking out on the right of the card, which are decorated with double seam binding, and parasol charms and natural hemp twine.

Midway post for Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia Challenge.

Hello everyone
Today is our midway post for Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia Challenge
and as you may already know, our current theme is the easiest of all
We are thrilled to be sponsored by WILD ORCHID CRAFTS and they
are offering you a chance to have a spending spree in their store!!!
I have used Edwin with Teo the dragon (animals of the Year, 2014) for my card. I was having a look
through all my stamps that I have had for some time and thought I could make a little boys card for a change.
I have also coloured up Tilda with Dexter the dragon, I couldn't resist doing both he he!
Here he is! So cute!
I have coloured them up with copics and used a few magnolia die cuts, that I also coloured with my copics to match.
Made my own rolled roses and rosettes from Maja papers and used a couple of Magnolia papers to make the bridal bow and of course the tag.

Please do not forget that you are in with a chance of a shopping spree with Wild Orchid Crafts and we would love to see you enter our challenge.
We cant wait to see your stunning creations!!!!

Brand New Challenge at Lovely Hanglar or Sweet Magnolia

Hello Everyone
Today is the day for our brand new challenge theme over at
We are thrilled to be sponsored by The Rubby Buggy
and you are in with a good chance to win a voucher to
spend in this fabulous store.
Our Easy peasy theme is Anything Goes, so there is no excuse not to join in!
We will not be having a midway post this month to give the team time with
their families over the festive period.
I have made this gift bag and bauble, for my mother as a pre-Christmas gift.

I made a bauble last year for myself and she loved it, so I made one for her, there a few extra little goodies to go in the bag too. 
To thank her for being a wonderful mum.
Sorry this is a long post, please click on the first picture and scroll though the side show.

In this picture you can see the 3 little snow balls that are glittered, cute hey!

I used Magnolia's Ginger Bread House die, to create the little house inside.
I have strung it with white seam binding to hang from the tree.

When I had glued the bauble together, I shook it, so the little snow balls and glitter would stick to the glue around the edge, which gives a nice snowy effect.
The flowers are normal store bought flowers, that I took apart and added the extra layers to create a fuller poinsettia.

As I don't have my tree up as yet, the picture below is of my own bauble from last year!

Many Thanks for stopping by today and taking the time to look through my very looong post.
Don't forget to pop over to LHOSM and join in the challenge.
Christmas wishes from all the team.
