Anyway I made this card for my friend Diane who helped me with my job application this week. Thanks Hun. The image is from the new Magnolia Summer Collection and is 'Strawberry Tilda' I coloured her with my copic markers. The papers are by Bo Bunny. I used my favourite oval scallop punch and oval sentiment by SU. The flowers are cut from the papers and layered.

Tilda with Bathing Ring

Good Morning, its a lovely sunny day here in Leeds today. I made another card using the Magnolia Summer kit. I masked Tilda onto the bathing ring and coloured the images using my Copic Markers. The papers are by Bo Bunny and are called 'Alissa'. The papers are gorgeous and are very girly. I used a Nestie for mounting the image. The flowers are by Prima and I added a spacer and a small brad. The sentiment is my favourite at the moment and is by SU. The oval scallop is from a punch also by SU.
Have a great weekend

Edwin and Lizard

Good evening hope your all well. This weekend was our student ball at one of the hotels in Leeds. I had a really good time, but boy did I have a cracking hangover yesterday. It took me until 8pm last night to feel almost human again. I know self inflicted as my hubby says -no sympathy there !
Anyway i have made this card for my son Jack who will be celebrating his 12th birthday tomorrow (gosh where does time go ?). The image is Edwin with lizard and he is coloured using Copic Markers. The papers are by Prima Marketing and are from the 'Dude Collection'. I layered the image onto SU cardstock. The buttons and star are chipboard and are also by Prima. The sentiment is computer generated as I wanted to make it personal.

Strawberries and Tilda

Good morning, its a lovely sunny day here in Leeds. I used my new Summer Magnolia kit to make this card. I masked the image using the SU stamp-a-ma-jig (thanks for the tutorial Vicky).
The cute Tilda is coloured using Copic Markers. The papers are from the Doodlebug 'Strawberry Parfait' Collection (these new papers are delicious) and mounted using SU green galore and pink passion cardstock. The flowers are from Prima and i added a spacer and small brad to the centre. I also added some small white pearls to the centres of the small flowers on the image. The sentiment is from SU and is my favourite at the moment, the oval scallop is from a punch and is also available from SU.

Have a great day whatever your up to

Bloom and Grow Daisy Tilda

Well no blogging for ages and then two cards in two days ! I made this card yesterday (and got no housework done). The image is from the new Summer Magnolia Kit. I just adore the stamps in this kit I love everyone of them. I coloured Tilda with Copic Markers and even managed to use the blending tecnique I learnt at one of Maddies workshops.The papers are from MME 'Bloom & Grow' 6x6 cardstock and are so pretty. One sentiment is from the Summer kit and the other is from the oval set by SU. The flowers are cut from a papershapers retro punch, I like these flowers and they look pretty if you curl them in slightly.
Well best get some chores done and may even try to make another card later !

Ice Cream Tilda's Sweet Treat

My Magnolia Summer kit arrived yesterday while I was at work, also my Doodlebug 'Sweet treats' papers arrived too. So I combined them to make this card. I just could'nt wait !
I love this Tilda with ice-cream she reminds me of Megan when she was little. I coloured her with Copic Markers. I used the new Doodlebug 'Sweet Treats' papers. The new range of papers from Doodlebug are divine. I also used the sentiment from the Summer collection. The cardstock is from Doodlebug and so are the cardstock stickers. The scallop and circle are cut from SU punches.
I also decorated inside the card, here it is :

But then I decided to use my new personalised stamp and added a little decoration to the back,

Have a great weekend, and Thanks for stopping by

Rainbow Sherbet Anya

I just wanted to say a big sorry for the lack of blogging lately. I have had an enormous amount of work to do for University over the last month. I finally finished it all and it is all handed in YIPPEE so i can now get back to crafting an visiting all your blogs.
I made this card yesterday the image is an Anya, I love this one she reminds me of my daughter megan. She is coloured using copic markers. The papers are Rainbow Sherbet by SU and i bought them from the lovely Jules. I love the vibrant colours. The flowers are cut from a papershapers punch and i added a gemstone and a SU button. The sentiment is from the Sincere Salutations stamp set from SU.
