Fancy Floral Card

Another week has flown by, had a great day last Sunday at a craft show at Alexandra Palace. Lots of new stash to play with, wish I had more hours in the day. Other good news is that we are offically house hunting now, so I may get that craft room that I've been dreaming off. :-)

Here's my DT card for this weeks challenge at CRAFT which is fancy floral (challenge 70), our sponsor this week is Die Cut Dreams

This was the first time I have made a flower. The flowers layers were cut using my slice machine with two different basic grey papers , there were edged with a pink promarker and lots and lots of glitter. They are held together by a pearl brad and silver flower.

The leaves were made using my new woodware leaf punch, the scrol die cut was something I got in a swap from another trimmie. The background papers are from Papermania, the image is a Sugar nellie stamp coloured in with Promarkers and the ribbon is from the hobby house.

Thanks for looking and don't forget to check out the other DT members for this weeks challenge.

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 68....

This weeks challenge at C.R.A.F.T. is colouring pencils. The colouring part was definitely a challenge, as I'm now addicted to Promarkers. I had to borrow some colouring pencils from my 2 year old !!. The rest of DT made some amazing cards so check out the other designs.
Our sponsor this week is The Crafty Pad, the challenge winner gets to choose 2 digi stamps from the online shop.
The image I've used is the very cute Molly the Cat and birdhouse digi images from The Crafty Pad. Debbie has lots of great digi images for sale, so check them out.
Now onto my DT card for this weeks challenge:

The papers used here are all by My Minds eye, the flowers and brad centers (with added sparkle) are from Papermania. The message and card candy from craftwork cards.

Baby's First Christmas....

This is one of my new stamps from Lili of the Valley that I couldn't wait to use, the toddler is so cute. I had no sentiment to say 1st Christmas so I made my own using rub ons and heart tags. The image is coloured in with Promarkers and most of the other things on the cards are from Doodlebug apart from the stickels blue and silver glitter and the clear snowflakes (not too sure where they are from).

I'm entering this into Die Cut Dreams Christmas club - challenge 34 - childrens Christmas

First day of school...

I am so proud of my oldest son. Today was his first day of school. He looked adorable in his uniform and was so excited about school, by 7am he was all ready with shoes on and book bag in his hand asking 'when can I go to school?' over, over and over again, bless him. So no tears when I left him (from either of us) and he was happy when I went to collect him. He's looking foward to going back tomorrow so he must have enjoyed it.
Here's a piccy of Liam all ready in his uniform, isn't he cute.
