Flowers and ribbon at LCI


Quick post from me today with the latest card for this fortnights LCI challenge, which is Flowers and Ribbon.  I've used some of my stash up for this card... I know, some of my Bo Bunny papers have been cut up... well I had to as I bought a new pad the other week, so I had to actually use something up!


Anyway, I used the 30 image from the Through the Ages Collection and coloured it with copics and added glamour dust to the shoes and the printed again on more of the papers.

The flowers, ribbon and flower pin are all from my stash - how good am I to be getting throught the look not use stage!  Mind you the border at the bottom is new - it's a Memory Box one that is a set of six.  Once I found a pair of wire cutters in the garage and snipped it apart it works much better :-D Well! Honestly, where does it tell you to do that on the packaging?  It was a dumb mistake that anyone could have made!

That's it from me today, looking forward to seeing your interpretation of the challenge

Punches and Dies @ Southern Girls


It's been a funny day today... I've had my hair done after work, cut and coloured properly and looking lush (and me, relaxed....) then get back to the car to find a parking warden has given me a ticket... but slapped it OVER the parking ticket from the machine, which was in time, and with my registration number clearly marked on it.  Not sure quite what his/her thought process was whilst adhering the ticket, but suspect it might have been... "ooooh... whoops... oh what the heck!"  I'm going to appeal, but secretly thinking, please refuse so I can force it to go to court, and get the CCTV footage produced as evidence of me quite clearly parking my car, getting out, paying for my ticket, putting it on the window, locking my car then walking away, and an hour later the traffic warden slapping a ticket over the top of it :-D  My mind is clearly in the slighly warped setting today :-D

Anyhoooo.... today's card

This fortnights Southern Girls Challenge is Punches and Dies.... ahhh... very much my sort of thing!   I've used Wishing Well Fairy from Inky Impressions, who are this fortnights sponsors along with Marianne Design

I've used a heap of dies on here - La La Land Craft's Heart Banner, Memory Box Lavish Branch and Magnolia Vintage Tag.  More MME papers (one of these days I'm NOT going to use MME and you'll all fall over in shock!)  Berrisfords ribbon and some lace, pins and some dew drop thingy's I picked up at the weekend.

I was going to heat emboss the tag, but my heat gun is still AWOL (still suspect it has been relocated to the garage when HB was heat shrinking the wiring on the mini, it may never be seen again...), so I decided to use some guilding flakes instead.

I coloured her with my copics and added Glamour Dust to her wings and shoes

I think that's it from me today, thanks for stopping by!

Ladybug Crafts Ink - Colour Wheel Challenge


What an idiot I am, this challenge went live last week, but I got all confused with the last challenge and missed the first week!

Anyway, rather than post late, I'm doing this as a mid-week reminder!  The challenge this week is a colour wheel challenge - where you pick a colour then pick the colour on the opposite side of the wheel as your complimentary colour - check out the challenge blog.   I used orange - not an easy choice for me as it is not my go-to colour!  But on the flip side that gave me blue to work with... whoo hoo!

It seems my camera doesn't like orange very much as this was about the twentieth picture I have taken, and it is the best of a very ropey bunch!  How very odd :-D

Anyway, I used Mobile Phone Josh and a whole host of MME papers, and my new Memory Box die and Cuttlebug Chicken Wire embossing folder.  I have to say it is very theraputic (if not messy!) distressing all those edges!  I also used a bunting banner die from MFT for my sentiment

The camera liked the close up of the image a bit better, not much though!

Thanks for looking
