Anything goes challenge - Get ready for Easter

Good evening ,I can't believe how quick these weeks
are going .This Fortnight challenge at anything goes challenge
is Get ready for Easter .The DT ladies have made some beautiful projects
so please pop over for a look . I loved this theme ,a perfect excuse
to use pretty colours and pretty flowers . For my project
I used Tilda as shepherd ,this image has been in my collection
for quite a while now and I'm ashamed to say this is the
first time she has been used.

I have coloured the image with a mixture of promarkers and copics
( I have made a note of the colours but seem to have miss placed it
and as soon as it re appears I will add it to post).The papers are from my
stash they're in a pad but the cover of the pad is missing but I think it's
a dovecraft pad. The punch I have used is Ek succsess abstract flower
and the butterfly is a Magnolia Do Hickey die ,please check out the
Craft Den as Lynn has a fab selection of Magnolia stamps & dies and
lots of other fab crafting goodies.
I'm really looking forward to seeing all the fab creations for this
fortnights theme
Thanks for looking

Tilda loves flowers

Good evening , just a quick post from me today.This week has
been so busy I haven't had time to come up for air let alone
crafting ,so this is a card I made before my hectic weeks started.

I'm back in a Magnolia phase again lol. For this card I used Tilda loves
flowers, I coloured her in using copics ,the paper are from my stash,
the flowers are Doohickey doily flower die and the leaves are Marianne
design flower and leaves die. The sewing machine also came out for this
card but I did fake the stitching on the small heart . I must get myself
sorted and do some crafting as I have nothing else apart from DT stuff to
blog now and I think I'm getting withdrawal symptoms (lol).
Thank you for looking

Wee Suzi

Good Evening ,hope everyone has had a lovely week .It's been a busy week
for me and looks like next week is going to be the same .I locked myself away
on Saturday morning and this is what I made.
I don't use purple very often so this was a nice change . It did start out with a
clean and fresh look but then I spotted the sanding block and couldn't resist
distressing the card stock .For this card I used  Wee Suzi and again this
stamp was a delight to colour, And as usual  I used a mix of Promarkers and
Copics I will list  the colours at the of this post. The papers I used are from my
stash but for some reason I don't have many purple papers ,so I'm now on the
look out for more.Its hard to see but the little charm is a flowers basket and at
the moment my thing is to add a charm ,funny how we go through these little
phases no doubt it will be something else by next week lol. I have another card
ready to post and as soon as I have another spare moment I will post it.
I would like to as a BIG thank you to Dionne and Zoe for nominating me
for the versatile blogger award it is much appreciated and as soon as I get
some time (and my thinking cap on) I will post it  Thank you again ladies xx

anything goes challenge blog- Boyz to Men

Good afternoon ,Welcome to another anything goes challenge
and this fortnights theme is Boyz to Men. Personally I'm not
a big fan of making men's cards only because I can't add
all the pretty flowers and ribbon embellishments .For this
card I used lily of the valley stamp - gone fishing and the paper
are Bo Bunny Vicky B 6x6 paper pad available from craft den
I know it's sounds like a girlie paper pad but I thought these
coloured worked well for a male themed card .

I coloured the image using copics and added some faux stitching with
a white gel pen,the button I had in my stash and I stamped a boy sentiment
and embossed with clear embossing powder to give it a glazed effect (sorry
this is a bit hard to see from the photo). I will list what I used at end of this post.
Please pop over to the fab DT ladies blogs to see what wonderful creations
they've come up with ,and don't forget to check out the Craft den for all your
crafting goodies

Crafty boots challenge -Glitter

Good afternoon welcome to another Crafty boots challenge.
This fortnight challenge Glitter was chosen by the Lovely Dionne.
For this card I choose a Lily of the valley stamp - Dandelion clock

I think she such an adorable image ,I coloured her in using promarker and
for it to fit into the glitter theme I glittered her wings and her dandelions
also I have used glitter card for the Tim Holtz clock. The papers are from
my stash and the sentiment is a tatty button stamp. She was such a joy to 
colour and I'm hoping to get round to more of these stamps. Please 
pop over to the fab DT ladies blogs to she what fab projects they've 
come up with.
