I am back!!!!! with a challenge card

Good afternoon,

Its Tuesday 15th April 2014 and its been nearly a whole year since I last posted on my blog.

A lot has happened in the last year, I changed jobs, I now work full time and its hard with missing my three girls so badly, but needs must and my girls deserve the best which I am trying to provide for them.

I am on holiday this week, which is just lovely, and I have been able to a card!!!! I know, will wonders never cease lol.

I am entering this into the latest All Dressed Up challenge.  I have just recently found these beautiful images, and am having so much fun colouring these in :).

I also used a new product to me, The Summer Fair, by Tilda, Card Backgrounds.  I cut a 6 x 6 card down and used the front and the back for the front and back of my card, its come out soooo cute.

I used my copics for colouring, and some gorgeous pleated ribbon by Docrafts got this at a great price from The Range, reduced :)

I hope someone gets to still read my blog, but who knows as its been soooo long :)

Enjoy and have a happy Tuesday x

I have been a very naughty blogger, and forgotten everyone!!! gasp - so I am going to rectify that this very minute!!  I have been cheating on my blogger account with my new youtube account!!!!! mwah ha ha ha.  I have started to make videos as well!!!! he he he

I am so in love with Shabby Chicness at the moment, as you can see from my super cute project below.  I have had this lovely notebook in my stash for the longest time, seriously well over 4 years now lol. 

I used lots of lovely MME papers, seam binding, distressing using Tim Holtz distress ink pads, the absolutely gorgeous Tim Holtz Birdcage diecut, butterflies by Clearly Sentimental, Charm, MFT flower die, paper from a book, silver embellishment, Papermania Brad, Lace, ceramic little heart and I had soooooo much fun creating this.  I have it proped on my desk so I can see it.

A few randoms ....

Good evening

Well its Saturday 5th January already, where is the year going!!! lol

Have had a very chilled out day, spent most of it in our jammies, until I had to go food shopping, booooo.

I have been finishing off a couple cards, writing one, which is now going to be late as I forgot to post it yesterday!!! eeek

I have been colouring all week, during my lunch breaks lol, its great, I have all these images I can now use without having to really think about it!! get me

I am going to post some cards that I had made in December, so they are christmassy and then one I made a couple days ago and then today :)

 The one above is the one I finished off a few days ago, using a gorgeous Magnolia stamp I purchased off my friend on Facebook.  I used some papers I have had in my stash for a year, lol, and some of my christmas pressies :) MFT Loopy Bloom, sooooo cute, all I did was cut the felt and made this a different flower, so cute and versatile, I cute the H using my new MFT Hi Rise alphabet dies, and then finished off with these two cute buttons which are from a huuuuge bag of buttons new out by Papermania, £3 for a mahooooosive bag I might add :)

 The card above, is the one I finished off today whilst watching a new film on my laptop lol.  Again I had a half coloured up Magnolia image, so picked my papers and finished off colouring her to match.  I did a little distressing around the edge to tie it all in with my papers and what I wanted to create.  I used my new MFT Loopy Bloom flower again, this time as it is meant to be :)  I then finished off using some black organza ribbon, loooove this card.

 Card above is one I made during December, using a cute second hand Whiff of Joy stamp I bought off a lovely lady on Facebook, I coloured soooo many of these in during December at work lol. 

 Can u see the gorgeous sentiment and die cut bow!!!! soooooo cuuuute - both are from MFT and I bought them from Dies to Die for :)

 Card above is the one I made for my sister and her boyfriend, love this so much.

 I made this for my christmas tree, using a digi image, coloured in with copics, of course.

 I absolutely adore the card above I made, using a snowman stamp that my friend sent me, thanks Di.  I used a very old stamp set for the sentiment, its a Stampin Up set.  I really like how this came out.  I used my Go Kreate Frilly Frame Dies that I bought absolutely yonks ago at Ally Pally I think!! tee hee - Hope you have enjoyed my trip through December lol :)

Birthday time ...

Here is the card I was asked to make for my partners mum, her birthday is at the beginning of January and I made this with some things I had on my desk.  Its very bright and so not christmassy lol. 

Nearly ......

Tis nearly 2013 and I have to say I really hope it is better than 2012!!!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas the girls and I definitely did, I more than made up for anything lacking in their lives.

Caty got her All Star Converses she wanted, Maddie got her Fliker she had had her eye on and Beth got a guitar, and she absolutely loves it, it looks really cool.

What did you all get??? anything crafty?? I did, I got a couple of MFT stamp sets, and then from my fiance I got some die sets, so very happy with these, very lucky girl.

 Soooooo, being in the crafty mood that I was before Christmas, I bought my girls a gift voucher for their favourite store, Primark, and decided to make them a special card to hold them.

This is said card:-

All the girls loved them and I had a blast making these using MFT stamps and dienamics :)

Christmas Poinsettias ....

Whilst I have been off after my operation, I have been sat colouring and cutting out, and I am in love with the Spellbinder's Poinsettia die, it is just absolutely beautiful, and you can do so much with it.

I have made a fair few cards recently, but not really felt like uploading them, and so because I am finding it easier to sit at my desk again, I thought I would upload some of them and hope that people find inspiration from them, as I do from others on the net :)

 I absolutely love this card I made, I think I will be doing more of this I just love it lol
 This was made using the Spellbinders Poinsettia Die, along with the Cherry Lynn's flourish, and gorgeous papers by Dovecraft, and to finish it off the beautiful sentiment by MFT, and gorgeous Olive Satin ribbon!!! just lush :)

 I had a good play with the above card, again using my poinsettia die, rubbed some gold rub on over it, to make it shine, and used some Sizzix snowflake die cutters.

 This is the Spellbinders Poinsettia die used the other way, my vote is out on this way at the moment lol, but again the beautiful sentiment is by MFT, same set, papers by Dovecraft.

 Whilst sitting on sofa recovering, I sat and put together some decoupage that came free with a magazine not long ago, and I made this card with it, its quite cute :)

I adore these bunnys that Cats Pajamas have, this was actually a digi download and I am so pleased with this card, came out exactly as I imagined in my head :)

Hope you have enjoyed some of my latest cards :)
