Flat Bottom Snowy - Again

Flat Bottom Snowy - Sassy Cheryl's Digi's

I so hope you don't get sick of this wonderful snowman or the colour combination. 
I've gone crazy for him and just love beige and duck-egg blue together.
Just look at this snow flake too - It's a Magnolia Doohickey. I have a few dies but have to say this is my favourite by far.

I have used a mixtures of papers.
 They are FIRST EDITION one's - Christmas Joy & Festive Treats.
Season Greeting tag is from stash - I think it may have been from Hobby Craft.
Flowers as always are Wild Orchid Crafts.

Snowy as been coloured with Pro-markers - duckegg blue and beige.
I will be entering this card in two challenges.
Wild Orchid Challenge which is Bling it on! - Gems and pearls have been added to the card, as well as glitter but I'm afraid cus the light is poor you can hardly see it.
The second challenge is Anything Goes Challenge which is Anything Goes.
That's all from me today - now off to get the veg on and grill the chicken.
See you soon.
Hugs & Loves

Tilda with Tag Gifts

Tilda with Tag Gifts - Christmas Story

I have made this card for the Tilda Town Challenge which this week is Merry Christmas.
The papers I have chosen are Home for Christmas - Papermania. I've said before I'm not a red person. I love it but find it so hard to put together. These papers are simply LUSH! Remind me so much of a Scandinavian Christmas, somewhere - I'd love to go.
I have used a white gel pen to give Tilda stripes and dots on her dress. A great effect me thinks!
Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts as always.
Sentiment is from stash.
Ribbon - from Papermania Home for Christmas Collection.
I purchased the papers last week and over the weekend whilst in town, I popped in to BHS.
Love their Christmas gifts. 
I found this super gift set called " Home Sweet Home - Afternoon Tea "
It contains biscuits, fudge and tea. OMG!!! I was so excited, as it matched the papers perfectly.
I knew straight away who would love this gift. Plus I also had a plan - cheeky!!!
The friend who I am giving it for, saves boxes for me to alter, as well as other bits and bobs. 
So...........I know I will get the boxes back after they are finished with and can use again.
Does that make me a bad person??? Eerrrrrr NO! I'm recycling.... hehehehe
Well - it's Sunday, so that means a BIG roast dinner. So I'd best shoot and get the veg ready.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend folks. Hope you slept well last night - I know I did.
Hugs & Loves

Flat Bottom Snowy


 Isn't he just the most cutest, adorable snowman you have ever seen? I just had to get him. 
I'm on my second card now as my friend saw this one and wanted. I think he is going to be very popular amongst my friends. One as asked me to do him in pink for her Daughter.
He's been coloured with pro-markers - with my favourite colour combination.
Flowers as always are Wild Orchid Crafts.
Sentiment LOTV
Ribbon and snow flakes are my from stash.
Papers are Magnolia - Cloudy Turquoise Hearts - " Sweet Crazy Love " - LUSH!!!
Afraid the pictures are not perfect as the light is awful today - so dark.
Well - that's all from me today folks. Must get on with the boring household chores, then finish off my other card.
Have a super weekend - see you soon.

Starlight Tilda

Can you believe it, it took me since Thursday last week to make this card.
I've put things on, took things off. Gosh - what is wrong with me? How hard is it to make a card?
Colouring is fine, don't have a problem with that - it's so relaxing. It's the putting together.
Totally love this Tilda for my Christmas cards. The Jolly season is almost upon us, so I've got to make a start now, else no one will get an hand made card. Though I'm not making many this year. 
I bet a lot of you have almost finished them! Gosh I so need to get some mojo and crafting.
So, on to some of the ingredients.
I have used Magnolia papers from my dear blogger friend Jill.
They are called "Sweet Crazy Love" - gorgeous colours.
Tilda as been coloured with promarkers.
Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts.
I'm going to enter this card is -
Simply Magnolia - Sparkles and Swirls
Magnolia Down Under Challenge - Inspired by a Song & mine is 
It's beginning to Look like Christmas
Tilda Town Merry Christmas
Well - best get something to eat and clean my mess in the craft room.
Happy Crafting all.

Gift Box & Card

 My new stamps arrived over the weekend and my mojo returned straight away too.
I was beginning to worry but we all have days like this don't we?
Any way, my box started off as a coffee box which I lightly sprayed with paint.
I never throw anything away that can be altered.
I have used FIRST EDITION papers - Blank Canvas - omg they are so, so lush! I so need to get another pad. Some of the papers in the ck have a fabric texture to them. Gorgeous.
I'd highly recommend them.
Joyful Tilda as been coloured with po-markers. I've only coloured her lightly as to match the papers.
All flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts - I've had these peachy ones for ages now and didn't have papers to match.
Back of the gift box.
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards
 SPELLBINDERS Nestabilities - Floral Ovals.
Magnolia - Die cut Butterflies.
Ribbon and lace from stash.
That's it for me today as I have Holly round. Catch you all again soon.

Just for You - Little Tilda

Little Tilda from the Little Christmas Collection.

A quick post from me today. It's took me a couple of days to get this card done. Colouring one day, making the card up another. So wish I had more time on my hands. I purchased some lovely christmas papers again yesterday in the hope my mojo returns.
 Made this for a dear friend who usn't feeling herself of late.
The papers are - LOTV
Little Tilda has been coloured in with pro-markers. Glitter added to her wings.
Star gems from Docraft have been added around her.
Large butterfly is Magnolia - small butterfly I'm not sure the make or where it came from. I thin it may be from Holly's little craft box, that I pinched lol.
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards.
Flowers as always - Wild Orchid Crafts
I will be entering this card in Just Magnolia's Challenge Blog which is - Pearls/Die-cuts/Punches
That's it from me today. Got to get tea ready early tonight as I have Holly and a few things to do.

My last card on Teddy Bo's Design Team

I have so much going on right now in my hectic life  that I have had to leave the Teddy Bo teamies. There is not any ME time at all and finding it so hard to fit any card making in. I'm knackered when Holly my Grand-daugher as gone home, that all I want to do is sleep. I feel so tired all the time and now doing the school run too. As she is only afternoons, by the time I get home it's time to go back again. I seriously don't know how any of you manage to make cards and fit a full-time job in too. 
I will miss all the teamies greatly. Gayle I have known for many years - must be 8 or 9. Infact my first digi kit was purchased from Gayle. I do hope they will all keep in touch. Once things pick up for me - I'll be back with the girls again - wearing my rubber boots / dress and getting the whip out. Wonder who will be wearing them in my place?  
I so NEED and HOPING for a better year - next year. The last two have been bloody dreadful. 
Love to All the Girls :((
