Loving Lavinia Dies Big Time



I've not much time to chat today!



I'm too busy playing with my new dies
from Lavinia Stamps!




And if you like your dies big, you're going to love these, they measure 11.5 cm!
It doesn't show too well in the photo but I actually used the die to cut an aperture from my card the butterfly is layered onto vellum and the wings are highlighted with the most amazing Wink of Stella.


I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
OSAAT 222, Butterfly,
ATCAS50, Vellum.

Simply Over The Edge



I've really not been getting much time to craft lately so when I needed a quick card I went to my pot of images that I'd previously cut using my ScanNcut.
This gorgeous LCI Digi
 was simple to colour and just perfect for the job




I couldn't get it to show up in the photo too well but there's a sprinkling of glamour dust on the roses and on the dots of Liquid pearls added to the gypsophilia on the digi.


Unfortunately the close up does show up the speedyness of my colouring job!




Just in case you hadn't heard the sad news, 
will be closing their doors for good on the 
28th October so time is running out if you wanted to bag yourself a bargain and what a perfect time to grab a few extras for Christmas gifts for your crafty friends!



I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CCCDC11, Glitter digi,
TCC October, Pink,
4CC, Birthday.

Autumn, My Favourite Time Of Year!


I just love autumn, the smells, the cooler weather, being able to get out the jumpers again and open up my scarf drawer.
I never get bored with looking at the changing colours of the leaves, I just love it!
I wish I'd had more time to create this months DT contributions for Lavinia stamps, I made these a few weeks ago and now that I see them again, I realise that I didn't capture the true beauty of the season.




It would be lovely if you could join us in this month's challenge theme,
Email entries are accepted and with a prize of  a
 £40 Lavinia spend up,
 it's so worth entering!
So if you've got any Lavinia Stamps or Digi's, you've got nothing to loose!


I'm entering the following challenges:-
Inky Impressions, Flowers and leaves,
Chocolate Baroque, Colour recipe.

Sale Extended


As Kerry has been out of the country for a few weeks she has decided to extend the

I had hoped to get time to make a new card to share, unfortunately I didn't so I am going to share
 Ladybug cards instead!


I seem to remember that this was my first ever image coloured entirely using Copics.

Not Too Shabby!



Hello there, did you think I'd run away? 
Crafting has had to take a back seat lately, there's been so much going on and I don't know how you find it but the longer it is between playing,
 the harder it is to get creative. 
I have to say that when I saw the theme for the new Challenge at Southern Girls
, I panicked a little, you know me, I'm a CAS kinda girl, and the theme chosen for our
 Team Lou is
As usual we have some brilliant sponsors for this one,
I used Isabella by one of them, 
I also used a Marianne Craftable die, not the entire die cut but segments cut from Vintage Frame.
Have to say though that despite my fears, once I got into it I thoroughly enjoyed using the theme! I found myself using paint to distress the kraft envelope that I used as my base layer, I roughed up some of my edges with a nail file and broke out the Mega flakes, just a shame I couldn't find my flitter glue! I also managed a first thanks to Colette and my lucky win at Cosmic Strawberry last month, I used a doily!
You could be seeing a few more
 Shabby Chic Makes
 from me some time soon!





I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CCC71, Twine,
CM, Diecut,
DOC87, At least one flower,
BZC, Lace,
CMC56, Doily,
ES107, Distressed,
ALBC, Distress it.
