Red Rosie with cake

I have a feeling that this is the first time I have coloured this cutie up! Shame on me!

Anyway I made this using the fab sketch over at LOTV challenge.

You can just about see the glitter on Rosie's dress and the cosmic shimmer I spritzed on the roses.

What I used :
6" BY 6" card blank
LOTV Rosie with cake stamp
LOTV sentiment stamp
Circle nesties
WOC roses
Clear glitter
Cosmic Shimmer spray
Basic Grey Lemonade paper pad

I would like to enter this card into the LOTV sketch challenge.

Extremely quick post as I'm off to take the Gran out for the day!
Hope you are all well!

Forever Friends Fortnight Challenge - Birthdays

This fortnight the challenge over at Forever Friends is Birthdays and we have a new sponsor 'Bizzy Bec's' who kindly gave all the DT a digi image to play with.

I chose the delightful Daisy in 'My butterfly friend'. Isn't she fab! She was a doddle to colour with my PM's.

What I used:
  • My butterfly friend digi from Bizzy Bec's
  • Pink Petticoat gingham and plain paper in Blossom and Lavender
  • MS small butterfly punch
  • LOTV birthday sentiment stamp
  • Label and circle nesties.
  • Dewdrops.
I would like to enter this card into :
I love Promarkers - Anything Goes
The Crafty Pad - Bold and Bright or Soft Pastel - I went for the soft pastel
Paper Sundaes - Sundae bar - I went for wings and gems

We had an amazing amount of entries last challenge - thank you all so much! Hope you will join in this time and remember you dont need to use a Forever Friends bear as any animal will do and you will definitely be spoilt for choice as there are some fab digi's over at Bizzy Bec's!

Hope everyone is well and coping with the heat if you are in the U.K lol! H+M are loving me as I had to go out buy every single colour of vest top they had in my size because I tell you I was not prepared for it being this warm ha ha!

Pink Forever Friends

So I get all of this time off with no school or uni and what happens? My crafty mojo ups and leaves!!! A whole week of sitting staring at my craft stash and not having a clue what to do with it.

So I decided to do a bit of tidying/sorting and came across a Forever Friends Pink Parfait Decoupage pack that I hadn't even opened! So I forced myself to sit down and make a card with it and three days later I managed lol! I think using the fab sketch over at Cupcake Crafts Challenge helped quite a bit!

I'm quite impressed with myself lol!

A close up of the cute FF bear. Boy was that umbrella difficult to glue!

The gorgeous flower from 'I am Roses', its actually two flowers attached together with the pretty brad, which papermania have stopped making grrrrr!

What I used:
Decoupaged images, paper and greeting from the Forever Friends Pink Parfait pack
6" by 6" card blank
Crystal Stickles
Flowers from stash
Papermania pearl brad
Pink dew drops

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Cupcake Craft Challenges - sketch
Crafty Creations - sparkle and bling (I couldn't resist adding stickles to the water and backing paper)

On another note can anyone recommend a half decent paper trimmer/cutter?
Ive been using a super market paper trimmer and its defo on its way out lol. I've been meaning to buy another one since Christmas but there's just soo many out there I wouldn't know what to look for! All suggestions welcome!
I'll hopefully be back soon :)
Hope you are all well!

Forever Friends Fortnight Challenge : Spots and dots

Hi there!!!

This fortnight the new challenge over at Forever Friends is 'Spots and Dots.'

For some reason when I look through my card  box I have loads of baby boy cards but none for girls! So I decided I would take this opportunity to find some girly dotty paper to use with one of the mountain of FF stickers I have lol.

The dotty paper is from the Wild Rose Studio polka dot pack and the sentiment is from Stamporsaurus.
The fab prize up  for grabs is a lovely flower pack from I Am Roses. so do go check out FF blog and the fab creations from the DT!

                                          So placement finally finished and passed woop woop!!!!
                        It feels soooo odd not having any planning, resource making or marking to do!
I have quite a large pile of crafty stash which I haven't had a chance to play with yet so am very much looking forward to getting the living room floor in an absolute mess lol! (The bf isn't!!)
I also have some candy to post up to celebrate my 1st year blogaversary and my passing of placement so will hopefully have that up soon! 
Hope you are all well!
