My little suitcase is from a template that Magnolia-licious had on their blog for the September challenge and I've been dying to try it but have not had the opportunity until now lol! Also decorated with Tim's papers, the ribbon and pearls are from my stash and the flower from Wild Orchid. The tag is a Magnolia doo hickey which arrived yesterday morning, just in time to go with my project and the swirl is again a Marianne Die. Again I have used distress ink around the suitcase and the tag. I will be entering my card into the following challenges :

Here's hoping tomorrow will be a little warmer (fingers crossed). Enjoy what's left of the evening. Lotsa luv xxxxx

Morning All!! O my goodness how quickly have two weeks gone by, think the older you get the quicker time goes lol!! Our challenge this week over at The Creative Cottage has been set by our lovely Teri and she wants to see your halloween creations. I have used papers from the Trick or treat paper pack as well as the boo paper pack which can be found here. The image I have used is from Make it Crafty, isn't she gorgeous?! I've coloured her in with a combination of Copics and ProMarkers then cut her out and put foam pads behind her for a bit of dimension.
The mat that I have put her onto is a Marianne Die which I purchased from Crafters Companion as well as the flowers. The charm is from my stash, originally purchased from Bunny Zoes. I'll be entering my card into the Create 4 Fun Challenge whose theme is to use a digi image. Thanks for stopping by, hope you'll hop on over to the challenge blog to see the fabby inspiration from the rest of the team and join in the fun. Lotsa luv xxxx

Can you believe it's Thursday again and that means time for a brand new challenge over at Charisma Cardz. This week the theme is "Autumn Colours", so that leaves it wide open for you! I decided to use my hAngler & stAngler which I got a couple of months back and the poor darling has never seen ink! My dps are DCWV, latte stack. I just luv the colours in this paper pack and I thought all the leaves looked like they were falling down, perfect for autumn don't you think?

Just thought I would share with you a card that I made yesterday whilst I had a little me time. Strange how whenever I do have a little time on my hands I just luv to play with my Magnolias, they are definately my all time favourite stamps!!
I bought this mushroom house from the fabby Make It Crafty and have been dying to play with it! From the minute I saw it I instantly had a picture of Tilda sitting on the top so that is exactly what I did. I stamped her and then masked her and printed off the digi. Took a while to get all the positioning correct but I enjoyed every minute of my play time lol!!
I have once again used Copics to colour the image in cause I need all the practice I can get! The backing paper I've had for yonks and I think it's one of Kate Knights, but don't hold me to that. The swirl I made using a bassill template and flat backed pearls. I have given her wings a good going over with stardust stickles and have used glamour dust on the trims of her dress. I will be entering my card into the following challenges :
Make It Crafty - Anything goes
Just Magnolia - Special Monthly Challenge - Anything goes
Totally Tilda - Glitter & Sparkle
Flutterby Wednesdays - All winged things
Magical Monday Challenge - Back to nature
Stamp & Create - Pink for breast cancer awareness
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great week ahead!! Lotsa luv xxxx
