Angel in blue

Yes just time to post this before we head off.

I want to say a big thank you to both Sammi from Mad for Markers and .Make it Monday

I won the comment of the week on Make it Monday
which was a Copicendium that arrived yesterday.

A lovely glossy magazine full of cards and recipes of copics used.

This could not have been a better prize for this copic-aholic.

So I whizzed over to Mad for Markers and found they had a sketch challenge on.

I have managed to quickly make this card following the sketch.

Actually I was having a clear up and the piece of pattern paper must be at least 3 or 4 years old.

It was in a bag with just enough dark blue to make the card.
Anyone would think it was just wiating for me to make this card.

Tilda was coloured with:
Hair-E50 E51 E21
Skin- E00 E21 R11 R20
Dress- B23 B32
Wings B000
Ribbon- B000 B00
around the edge B32.

Thank you for dropping in you are most welcome.

Cute little Angel

I am going to be away next week so this extra card will make up for that.

The ribbon came from the reject shop and now I know why.

I really had to fight with it to get it stuck down, it would not obsorb the glue.

It must be metalic.  I am glad you were not in ear shot as there were some naughty words spoken.

When it did stick, boy, did it stick, there will be no moving it now.

As I said we are going away next week up to the north of the state lets hope the weather will

continue its improvement and not turn wet and cold again.

A Day without rain.......

My fav CD by Enya.
Today has been a beautiful day but really too hot for me around 28 degrees
have had the fan on while I was working.
We never get the weather how we want it do we?
If it ranged between 18 and 24 all the time I would be a happy little vegemite.
The long term forecast for Friday is 14 so it will be back to winter.
DH had to give the peas and beans a drink today after all the rain we have had but 
they were really feeling the heat.

Today I have followed the sketch over at Gem of a challenge.
Really loved it as it came together so well. I shall be using it again for sure. 
Although I have rather put my own slant on it by moving the image down
so that I did not hide the holly branch that I embossed on the back ground.
I agonised over the flowers for ages as none of the colours seemed to fit but then I remembered some glittery card that I have had for ages and they reeally stand out.
The photo doesn't do it justice. 
I coloured the rhinestones with my copic R46 I think.
Am madly into Chrissy cards now as I will soon have to start posting them if I am going to get them all out before Christmas.  The total is around 40 plus so far heaps to go yet.
Am also entering this in Make it Monday where it is always Anything goes. Bless them.

Coffee and cream

Our spring is being very naughty snow on the mountain again yesterday and of course we get rain
in fact everywhere is dripping the poor lawn is water logged.
Thankfully this afternoon the sun has come out and it has been quite pleasant.
Not before time.

I just love this colour combination and I added the yellow to give it a bit of contrast.
This is one of the Tilda's that has such cute little knees.
Actually I should have called it  Cocoa and cream as the card stock was Cocoa.
The DP was from HOTP.
The flowers were cut with the baby retro flower punch.
I now have 4 sizes of this punch so you can expect to see more flowers made with them.
I still have to finish off the inside.

I am entering this card in:

Papertake Weekly- Get into Shape 3 or more shapes on your card
Just Magnolia- Anything goes plus coffe and cream optional
Make it Monday- Anything goes

3 More Chrissy cards

 Yes 3 more to go with the one HERE.

They were all made with Kaiser paper in the Silly Season range
And the Bazzil I used was Petunia
and Limeade.  2 very beautiful colours.

I have used the same Tilda on each of them in different ways.

I have made them very plain but as they have to travel a lot of miles
I must be able to get them in an envelope.
Postage is a killer.

Am entering these in
Make it Monday- Always anything goes

Thanks for dropping by you are most welcome.

PS  If you see the sun just tell it to get back here.

It's officially SPRING.

We are enjoying a few days of very pleasant weather so I have made a springtime card today.

The HOTP paper is delightful with its yellow through orange blooms and blue foliage.

I have sponge the edges with DI Spiced Marmalade,
now I am thinking that I should have also sponged the edges of the flower too.

The flower I made with the Retro flower punch.
I love this as it sits so nicely.  The leaves I hand cut as I wanted to add the touch of green.
I matched Tilda's dress to the colours of the paper and I love her shiny blue shoes.
These have really shown up so well. 

I am entering this in
Make it Monday- Anything goes

Simon says Stamp - Anything goes [Hope I am just in time]

So glad you dropped in you are most welcome.
