Cherry kisses

Image
Cherry Kisses - Tea in the 20s - how cute is she , I have made a couple of these cards today using this image but this one has to be my favourite. She is coloured with promarkers and I have used a white sakura pen to give the polka dot effect on her clothes. The DP are papermania capsule collection. Spotty Ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons and the flowers from Mulberry Crafts . Glossy Accents on her shoes. I have used my Nellie Sneddon frame which I adore. The sentiment was done on computer using Atomic Pasta font. Have used a little distress ink (antique linen) around the white circles

Lemon and Lime

Image
With quite a few birthdays on the horizon I thought it was time to treat myself to some new digi's, wasn't sure what I totally wanted but knew I didn't want fairies as I have quite a few and not really flowers, that was until I saw this image!!! How adorable is she , this image is called Primrose Flower Fairy from Pollycraft and you can find her here
I coloured using promarkers and used scrummy Glamour dust on her wings, used some dabs of Stardust stickles here and there. I have used my Nellie Snellen frame with a ton of tiny silver gems added. The paper and ribbon is back to basics and the sentiment is a snag 'em stamp from papermania. A few pearls were added.

My Friday afternoon card.

Image
My job for today was going to be gardening, what a shame its rained all day and I had to stay in and craft ;-)
I Love this Sarah Kay image and I'm sure my Granny had a pair of shoes the same as those.
I have taken this photo on a piece of black card as the light is so bad today this seemed to work best but now it looks like I've cut some of the card off - I havent honest...
I have coloured using promarkers and added some faux stitching around with a gelly roll pen , the paper was a freebie download from here . The ribbon was from Crafty Ribbons and the handbag charm is from stash. The buttons are papermania capsule collection. I slightly inked the corners and edges.
Thank you for looking

My Non Square Card

Image
Over at One Stitch At A Time this week the challenge is 'Anything but square' - What do you mean - arghhh I only do square cards , did a round one once but didnt like it , so decided to try something new, well new for me and I loved it. The only problem I found was being able to take photographs , next time I make one I think I will take piccys before I attach it together.
I have used the lovely image Butterfly Lovefrom Stitchy Stamps, coloured with promarkers, Glamour dust on the wings (they twinkle so nice), I have very slightly inked around the edge. Gold stickle on her nails and on buttons at front of dress. With Love was made using Hobbyhorse font. Everything else used was from stash.

Hmmm can Leprechaun's be classed as sweet? maybe not but I do think this little fella has a certain sweetness about him all be it mixed with a glint of naughtiness!
He was a download that I cant for the life of me remember where from and I cant find him again either. I have used promarkers to colour and have used white fun flock on his hair, beard and eyebrows. Gold 3d glitter has been used on the coins and glossy accents on his pipe and shoes. The paper was a freebie download that matched perfectly for my card and the sentiment I printed out using shadowed serif font.
