Birthday Balloons Ellie

Hello my lovelies,

I'm back with my second post of the day to share a GDT card I made for the The Paper Nest Dolls . Her name is 'Birthday Balloons Ellie', isn't she a sweetie?. You can find her here.

 I used a Go Kreate die, Large Frame Flower #1 to cut the shape and the papers are Maja. Tucked behind the image is a paper doily and some cheese cloth and Marianne Creatables die (not that you can see much of it lol). The ribbon is my favourite Silky Crush, the bead string is from my stash and the corners I made with Air Dry Clay and a silicone mould. The flower sprays (my favourite at the moment) are from Live and Love Crafts and the roses and carnation and Rose Buds are from WOC.

Skin: E21, 00, 000, 0000, E93

Sakura Tilda

Hello my lovelies,

I hope you are all O.K. and have had a good week.

Once again I have to apologise for my absence from blogging and commenting on your lovely creations on FB and in Blogland, but I am just so busy at the moment, although I am trying to catch up. I have another week of work and then I have two weeks off which I am looking forward to and hopefully I will be able  to get myself back on track. 

I just thought I would share a card I made recently using Sakura Tilda and Shabby Chic Fence. The shape is cut using a Go Kreate die Large Frame Flower #1 and the papers are by Maja. Peeping out of the sides of the card is a Marianne Creatables Die and  top left is a Magnolia So Wrapped So Lovely die which I have added some pearl string and Pink Seam binding ribbon. The gorgeous pink Daisy is from the Ribbon Girls and the Flower Spray is form Live and Love Crafts, the rest of the flowers are from WOC. The Pink ribbon is from my stash and I've added a lovely pink cameo flower just to finish it off.

Besties Image

Hello my lovelies,

I hope you have had a good week. Mine was very busy as they all seem to be at the moment. George's house move went without any hitches, so much so that we aren't needed today. So that means we can get on with the decorating wahoo. The new bedroom doors arrived this morning, so more painting to be done.

Today I am sharing  a Besties image. I totally adore her and she is joy to colour. She is coloured with Copics and Prisma pencils. The papers are a mixture of Maja and Craftsytle which I picked up at the Make It Show. The corner I made using Air Dry Clay and a Silicone mould I bought from an Etsy shop. The sweet little banner is a La La Land Crafts die. The ribbon is my favourite Silky Crush and the flowers and lace are from my stash, apart from the beautiful  flowers sprays which I bought from Live and Love Crafts.
