Pickin' apples on a lazy Sunday morning.

Happy Sunday everyone, I hope you are all having a nice weekend so far. Well as promised I am back again with a new card for you all, I am really on a roll at the moment and I am enjoying my mojo whilst it has decided to grace me with it's presence! I am really enjoying using lots of different types of images at the moment and the freedom to experiment with different colour combos, don't you just think that stamping is the best hobby ever!

Challenges

Simon Says ... - Vintage with flowers (vintage colours/flowers on image & papers)
Copic Creations - Colouring Embellies ... I coloured my card candy



Materials

I dug out this oldie but oh so beautiful Sugar Nellie stamp to play with, I just love her and she melts my heart every time I look at her ..... such a perfect image. I have used an unusual colour combo for me but I was inspired by the beautiful colours in the BG wisteria pad which I was lucky enough to win as part of a recent challenge. Nikki from Bunny Zoe Crafts had it out to me straight away and I was able to get my hands on it within a couple of days - thanks for such a speedy service hun! Very little else to tell about my card apart from I coloured the card candy from Craftwork Cards with my copics and that's about it. No fuss with this card, I figured it did not really need anything else - sometimes less is more, don't you think!

Birthday Lilacs


Good afternoon everyone, oh what a fabulous night we had with our friends last night. We saw an amazing singer for the first half of the evening and then we hit Flares and danced til the early hours, my feet are killing me but it was so much fun. I thought I would share the card I made for Beccy (it was her birthday yesterday), isn't this image so much fun!

Flowers are a mix from Poppicrafts and Crafty Feeling and the lovely gem brads are by Papermania (I think). Another fab craftwork cards sentiment (you can buy some HERE and they are so handy to have in your stash, lord only knows how I managed without them. They fit beautifully in my fancy tags by Spellbinders. The lush ribbon is a real steal from the Paper Mill Shop at only £2.99 for 12 metres and comes in loads of colours in both satin and organza. Oooh, almost forgot my Martha Stewart Border Punch .... eek. Little sparkly gems from Papermanis to finish and thats it, another card finished. Please pop back tomorrow because I have a really gorgeous image to show you .... have a fab day xxx

The polka dot one is flock and so lovely to stroke that I nearly cried punching and cutting it! I have kept my embellies quite simple using a yellow flower and ribbon (very pleased with my bow!!) from Crafty Feeling and gorgeous rose from Wild Orchid Crafts. My usual Martha Stewart branch and border punches (how did I manage without my branch punch for so long??) and I have placed the craftwork cards sentiment on a Spellbinders fancy tag. Little bit of my fave Startdust Stckles to Tilda's wings to give her just the right amount of bling and job done .... easy!

Super delish papers and image - what's not to love!

Hi there, how has your day been? I am much, much better and have been at university today filling the gap between my ears full of knowledge, lol. I made this card last night and couldn't wait to get home today to post it because I lurve it sooooo much (isn't it fab when you like something you make yourself??!!). Tracy from Dies To Die For sent me these gorgeous My Minds Eye 'Lush' papers in aqua and it was love at first sight ..... I need more of these and in all colours I think, love, love, love them!!

Well, how lovely is this sweet Belles and Whistle stamp, I adore all Elizabeth Bell's work and this is no exception, such a pleasure to colour. Of course I have mentioned these delish papers already so make sure you check them out before I buy them all!!! Think I have a new addiction coming on, oh dear!! The flowers are from my stash and I think the large one was from Poppicrafts which I bought many moons ago - I livened it up a bit by punching the petal edges with my beloved MS Doily Lace Punch ... nice little touch I thought. Craftworks sentiment again and my papermania mosaic gems (am I so predictable, lol). The sparkly icing on the cupcake is from my lovely Spica pen that Tracy sent me (remember to store these flat ... as I found out!).
Expect to see these papers later in the week .... told you I was addicted. Have a lovely evening xxx

Better late than never .... LOTV sneak peek #2


Well, here I am a couple of days later than I intended to share another sneak peek with you all. I was supposed to post this on Sunday but I ended up in hospital for the morning after having the worst pain I have experienced since childbirth. I was on gas and air and needed an injection in the bum (poor nurse) to stop me being sick. Thankfully I am much, much better now so here I am to share this cute kitty who will be available to buy from Lili of the Valley on March 10th. Judging by all your comments from my last card you are going to love the new release - have you checked out the other DTs blogs for sneak peeks yet???? Make sure you do because there are some real beauties!

The lovely flowers were sent to me from a special friend across 'the pond' .... thanks sweetie but if you are not as luckjy as me you can buy some super Prima flowers from DTDF. The brads and gems are Papermania but again, you can get lots and lots of sparkle right HERE ... OMG keep me away from that link - loving all the bling!!!!!

Hiya, oooh I am so excited to be able to let you see this card because it is a brand new image from Lili of the Valley . There are going to be 6 new stamps available to buy on 10th March and the Design Team will be showing you sneak peeks over the next few weeks.

I have decided just to ramble on about my materials rather than just list them - you all know how I love to talk, lol. Well as I have already mentioned I have used this scrummy image from LOTV which will be available in a few weeks (bargain too at less tha £4!!). I think it goes perfectly with my new papers that I bought last week. They are the new Forever Friends A5 Pink Parfait paper pack and the little sentiment is also from the same range. I have used 2 fab Martha Stewart punches which are both available from Tracy at Dies To Die For . I have if course used the lovely border punch and also this fab branch punch. Tracy is expecting a huge delivery of MS punches so keep an eye on the website and also on her blog for details of new products and special offers. The flower, brad, ribbon and gems were all out my stash and I think that is it!

Off to try and make myself gorgeous in an hour ... omg think I need a miracle, lol .... but after a few drinks I will not worry as much. I hope you all have a lovely evening, see you again tomorrow I hope xxx

Just Magnolia ..... Love


Good morning everyone, and what a difference it makes when Friday arrives - I am in a really good mood so let's hope it lasts! Had a nice day yesterday - a couple of DT parcels arrived (goody goody), my Lady GaGa tickets arrived (OMG I am mega excited now!!!) and Ryan (darling son) was interviewed by one of the Sunday papers!!! The reporter was sat in during rehearsal and I had no idea. She asked to interview him and I was sat outside wondering what was taking him so long so sat there texting him to get his ass outside or he would be walking the 30 miles home .... oops, bad mummy rofl.

So, here I am to redeem myself and prove that I am a worthy human being (gulp) by sharing a card with you all. Friday means a brand new challenge on Just Magnolia so let's see all you fabulous cards to do with ......
