A last hint of summer colour

Hi guys, I'm here today with my usual Tuesday post for
Love to Create and Craft,
This time i have some of the new Beautiful Day papers papers to show you, this time I used a 6" x 6" paper pad, but they do a 12" x 12" version too,
Aren't they just gorgeous, and as usual they distress so well too,
I coloured this Alicia with flowers stamp by Agateria with my distress re-inkers this time, I've been colouring a bit with my copics lately but more of that to follow later, lol
Again i've used some of the gorgeous fabric flowers,  glass strawberries and stamens plus some gorgeous lace too,
I finished this side off with a lovely twig of cherry kept in it's natural colour but I then added a little distress ink on the flowers and a few hints of liquid pearl too,
Do check out all the gorgeous products new and older Monika has in her online store,

Happy Crafting!!

Happy Anniversary

Hi guys, I thought I'd show you a commissioned Anniversary card for a 35th Wedding Anniversary, 
I used some of the gorgeous Maja Design Vintage Romance papers, I distressed them on the edges a little and machine sewed them too,
I bulit up layers again using some of the papers and a heart die from my stash I've had for ages, I think it may be a Spellbinders one, but i'm not sure,
The clock is again from a paper by Maja Design, from the Vintage Autumn Basics collection, I  so love these!!! and I used a Scrapiniec chipboard key hole which I painted with a little white Gesso, A vintage style key and a frame from my stash,
Underneath is a Joy music die by Noor Design,
I also used a memories die which I layered up in two colours one slightly offset from the other to add a  little shadow,
I finished off the card with a few flowers, twine and seam binding from my stash too,

We wish you....

A merry Christmas,
Can you believe it I've done yet another Christmas card, well a few actually, but more on those later, lol
I am back today with my weekly post for 
Monika has some adorable new Christmas products in, including these Chip boards and I couldn't resist using some of them for this card,
The papers I used are from the 12 x 12 and 6 x 6 paper pads North Pole by Craft and You Design, these have a lovely range of colours in the pack, 

Here is one of the adorable chipboards, all links below, I coloured him with vintage photo distress ink, isn't he darn cute!!! above is the village scene which I kept in it's natural colour, just adding a little distress ink on the background paper,
I handmade the flower and added a silver sequin for the middle, behind the flower I added a white glass strawberry and a white Pomegranate apple too,

Just peeking out at the side and around the center scene, is a Decorative twig too,
I finished off the card with some of the gorgeous lace Monika has in store and then a All dressed up Digi which I fussy cut out and coloured with my copics,
Well I think I need a coffee, to get over the shock!! lol

Dancing queen

Hi guys, hope your all well, thought i'd show you a card I've made using this adorable
Abi Ballerina digi by All Dressed Up, I've coloured her with my distress re-inkers and one marker,
I added a little Glamour dust on her skirt and a tiny bit of Frantage around her too,

The gorgeous Papers, lace, Vintage seam binding, copper Frantage, Flowers, Scrapiniec Heather branches and paper doilie, was part of the  Crafteezee Elegance collection which I treated myself too,
Wow these kits are totally stunning and with lots of beautiful products inside,
The vintage white seam binding was part of the kit and i also used some green too which i got off Tracy, I painted the Heather chipboard with a little white Gesso, then finished it off with one of the gorgeous flowers from the kit,
This stunning lace was also in the collection, isn't it gorgeous?
I finished off the right hand side with some more of the chipboard and some more of the beautiful flowers, I then added a little moss behind the flowers from my stash, I've seen Tracy use this and so I have borrowed her idea as it looks great and brought in a little green to compliment the papers and image,
The die cuts are by Noor and another,

A little Vintage

Hi guys, Have you missed me? I've had an overnight stay in the hospital oon a drip for a skin infection, which then left me shattered while I then took the oral ones to finish the course, thankfully I'm ok now, they think I may have been bitten by something!!!,
 anyway on too my card and you may be in shock!!I know I am, I have made a card that to me looks to me slightly vintage!! or am I imagining things, lol
Either way I couldn't resist using this gorgeous image and papers from UHK Gallery, Mademoiselle Beatrice and Mademoiselle Antoinette from the Mademoiselle paper pad, available from
Love to craft and Create along with the delicious chipboard border, lace and Flowers,
So what do you think? Vintage or not?? LOL
Happy Crafting!!
