LOTV - Mother's Day Cards

 Hello my lovelies. I've had a busy few days with orders for Mother's Day cards.
I purchased these wonderful pre-coloured images when I had a day trip to LOTV shop. I have to say my Daughter was not impressed when we got there. 
We spent over two hours on the road - Staffordshire to Farsley. 
When we parked up and walked in the shop, my Daughters words were " Is this it"? I don't know what she was expecting - some huge warehouse full of crafts maybe? Hehehehe, I wish.  Let's say I spent quiet a bit but my Daughter said she will not be taking me again. We had coffee in the store, the girls made us feel very welcome but as we were only there half hour Tasha told me " Never again "!!!
Spoil Sport!!!
 These little cuties are called Fluffy Bunnies
So, so cute and I thought were just perfect for Mother's Day.
Papers used are Country Companions.
Whimsy Stamps - Banner Pennant Die Set.
Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts and stash.
Cherry Lynn Die - Tropical Flourish.
Small butterfly punch - docrafts.
 I'm going to enter these cards in the Lili's Little Fairies Challenge - which is butterflies.
I now have to make all the boxes. Not sure if to decorate them or leave them plain with a nice tag with the scraps I have left over. We will see.
Well, happy crafting girls and boys. Have a super weekend. catch you again soon.
Hugs & Loves

Tilda with no lines

 Morning everyone - I hope that you all had a super weekend. We had family down from up North. My Neice, her Hubby and baby. It was wonderful to see them all and the baby as grown so much. 
6 months old and crawling - a cheerful little chappy he is. Lovely having a baby boy in the house.
 He was spoilt rotten to say the least. 
Last week, I thought I would give another go at stamping without lines. I spent 2 hours colouring this sweet Tilda - Tilda with Little pocket.
 I stamped her with a pale peach and worked my way around the out-line first. I found this easier for me. I used my Poly-Pencils for a change and blended with sansodor. I have to say I am very pleased with the end result
I have used -
SPELLBINDERS Nestabilities - Floral Ovals.
Magnolia butterfly die and tag.
 Flowers Wild Orchid Crafts and Magnolia.
 Cheery Lynn Die - fanciful flourish.
Sentiment - Docrafts.
Papers - First Edition - Blank Canvas.
I havent entered any challenges for a while, so here is a few I'm entering my card.
Simply Magnolia - BINGO - Flowers, Pearls and Lace ( pearls are on Tildas flowers )
That's if for me, I have to go and get myself sorted now as the car needs to go in for its MOT.
Have a good day.
Hugs & Loves

Saturated Canary - Starla

Hello my lovelies - I hope I find you all well. I haven't been doing a great deal of card making as I have had other projects on the go. I'm crocheting a blanket for my bed and I'm so enjoying it, very relaxing at night time. Plus I've also made a memo board which I'll be showing on my blog later this week.
This card is for my Daughters friends sister who will be nine on Tuesday - I've even been roped in to making a birthday cake too. KIDS!! Why do they do this to use - as if I don't have enough to do in the week.
I have used Saturated Canary Digital Stamp - she's called Starla.
Coloured with my Pro-markers in blues and greys. Love the two combinations.
Papers used are Forever Friends - New Arrival. Gorgeous glittered papers. Lush!
Flowers as always are Wild Orchid Crafts as are the gems.
Heart Charm is from The Works - a pack of 8 for £1 - bargain!
Twine from Docrafts.
SPELLBINDERS Nestabilities - Floral Ovals.
Small butterfly punch.
That's it for me today. I have all my things out to do the tutorial for mirror stamping. Sorry I haven't got round to doing it before, just never seem to have the time. 
Have a good weekend. Catch you all soon.
Hugs & Loves
