Wedding Couple

Hello bloggers.

Hope you are all well and managing to fit in some crafty time. As I mentioned on my last post, my mojo disappeared and I was desperate to get it back. Well, my mojo came back but it would not let me create the wedding card I needed to do. The wedding colours were Cadbury purple, cream and gold and try as I might I could not create something that I was happy with. I wasn't asked to use those colours, that was my idea - one of my bad ideas!!! Anyhow I got up yesterday and instead of beating myself up about it, set out to make a wedding card more suited to my style. 

I used LOTV's Wedding Couple.

I coloured the bride with Pro and Flexi markers and added Diamond Sparkles to the dress and flowers and coloured the groom with Faber Castell, Polychromo pencils. 

The flowers, metal embellishment and hat pin are from WOC. The Sentiment stamps are from Whimsy Stamps. The butterfly is a Memory Box Die.

Party Girl

Good Afternoon blog world.
Hope you  are having a good day and looking forward to the weekend. I am having a couple of hours away from my craft room because I can't find my mojo anywhere. I am supposed to be making a wedding card but am not having much luck. I think the problem is that I have been given specifics ie Cadbury's purple, gold and cream. I haven't got any papers that match the colour ribbon I need to use and cream is not really a colour I use. What's a girl to do!!!

So, I will post a card which I made next week and hopefully by the time I have completed this post I may get some inspiration. I have just read my post before publishing it and had a little laugh to myself. I will see if any of you bloggers out there can spot my mistake, let's say I think I am getting ahead of myself!!!

I have used LOTV Party Girl

The colours I have used are quite a bit darker than I would normally used so I have toned them down slightly with some black, which I actually love to use on cards. 

The image has been coloured with Pro and Flexi Markers and the papers are from Nitwit Collections. Her crown and the hearts have Diamond Sparkles added. 

The Poppy Die which is a real favourite of mine is by Memory Box and the tag is from Whimsy Stamps. The flower is a Spellbinders Die. The ribbon is from my stash and sorry but I have no idea where I purchased the butterfly.

The Paper Shelter - Anything goes

Right I am going to count to ten and ready or not mojo I am coming to find you. 

Hugs to you all and will see you soon.

Tiddlyinks challenge at Diva's by Design

Good Morning friends.

Hope you are having a good week and managing to get crafty. Before I go to work today I am going to have a tidy of my craft room. Gosh I wish I could be a tidy crafter. I start of with good intentions but it all goes to pot once I am in crafty mode. 

Today I am posting my first card as a DT member for Diva's by Design. I am so excited to be given this opportunity and look forward to working with the team. This weeks challenge has been sponsored by Tiddlyinks and the theme is anything goes.

I have used the cute Lilli Claires Bouquet.

She has been coloured using Pro and Flexi Markers. The papers are a mixture of Sassy Designs (the base paper) and a pink paper from my stash. 

The flowers and the corner metal embellishment are from WOC. The butterfly die is by Whiff of Joy and the leafy border (which is slightly hidden underneath the flowers) is by Cheery Lynn.

The sentiments are by LOTV.  The ribbon punch is by Martha Stewart.

Patchwork Daisy

Good evening blogger friends.

I would like to say a big thank for all the anniversary wishes I received.  Russ and I had a wonderful time and yes I did occasionally turn my computer off!!! I have to say though I need to seriously get some sleep before I am back at work on Sunday. Part of our relaxation involved drinking a bit too much red wine and I'm afraid it relaxes Russ's jaw a bit too much as my goodness he can't half talk a load of old rubbish in his sleep. Would have been quite entertaining if I hadn't been so tired. 

Now I am back home I am looking forward to spending some time visiting your blogs and viewing your wonderful creations. Below is a card I made for a friend who has a 65th Wedding anniversary party this weekend. 

LOTV - Patchwork Daisy

The card blank is by Craftwork Cards and the papers are by Sassy Designs. If you haven't already visited them they are well worth a browse as there is a massive 88% off the papers at the moment.
The flowers are by WOC.

The ribbon punch is by Martha Stewart which I purchased at the LOTV shop - such a wonderful place to visit. Viewing all there card samples is just paradise.
