Buttons at La-La-Land crafts

Hi guys, back again for inspiration Friday at
this week is to use buttons, now as you know it's not something I use a lot of and when I do they are hard to find lol. but they are still there he he,

The two buttons I've used are on the top right a pearl button on my tag and the glass effect one in my flowers at the bottom left, hopefully the twine bows give them away too lol,
Heart key Marci is coloured with my distress re-inkers then fussy cut out, shaped slightly and layered onto my card using pin flair glue,

I've kept the colours soft this time, she has a hint of stickles on the  hearts on her  key,

Happy Birthday Tegan

Hi guys, it's Tegan's 2nd Birthday today, she had a little party yesterday and the weather was gorgeous for her, her mum and dad did a lovely BBQ and she enjoyed opening her pressies and playing with the box lol
warning loads of pictures!!!
This is her card, I couldn't resist using this adorable Mo Manning image (no one can Ever fill your shoes) for her as she's a right girlie girl and loves walking round with her handbags, mobile phone and trying on your shoes, I have decoupaged the image after colouring with my copics as Tegan loves feeling the effect of the raised surfaces as she's always asking to stroke my 3D cotton reel I posted a few weeks ago lol,
The Butterfly  another love of Tegan's is by prima lifetime collection  from My crafty Heart and the impression obsession hearts dies have had some stickles treatment too,

this is Tegans version lol

Can't get anything done for phone calls lol

having fun opening her pressies,
So excited when she put the shape back in the correct place he he,

oh the joys, playing with the box lol

Mo's digital challenge - Birthdays

it looks like it may be another beautiful day here today too,
back later with my DT card for Deep Ocean,
hugs Liz xx

Taking a Dip

Hi guys, back  today for Totally Tilda's latest challenge which is
Tilda at the seaside or BBQ
I chose at the seaside,

The weather here has been gorgeous a couple of days and maybe she would have got to the beach lol,
Tilda on the beach is coloured with my distress re-inkers and I have attempted the sea and the sky too, she looks a little on a squiff I don't know why because on the card she looks fine, so no I'd not had a nice glass of wine first lol,

The shape is a Go Kreate die and the paper is Magnolia, the postcard stamp is by Lili of the valley and the gorgeous die at the bottom is of course by Noor 6002/0147 I didn't add any more colour this time I just embossed the detail,
starfish are from Hobby Craft, 
I've used hints of crackle paint here and there too,

Back to school at LA-LA LAND CRAFTS

Hi guys, it's time for inspiration Friday again at LA-LA LAND CRAFTS and this week the theme is back to school,

As you can see I've used Back pack Marci and coloured her with my copics then cut her out and layered her onto my tag shaped card,
The papers were from an old Basic grey pad I found lurking in a draw that fit the theme perfectly lol,
the clock is a Marianne die and I've added some letter from Noor design to finish it off,
The border dies are also from LA-LA LAND CRAFTS links below,
 I also made the back pack adapted from a template by Mary Arima on Splitcoast stampers, it was such fun to do lol,
again I've used the string of hearts border die from LA-LA LAND CRAFTS  and also used some DUTCH DOOBADOO laser cut paper buttons, these I have coloured with distress ink to match in with the colours used and added a little twine,
The fabby charms are from MY CRAFTY HEART
Here I've again used the Noor Design letter to write her name lol

Midweek Tilda's Wedding for Totally Tilda DT

Hi guys, I'm back today with the midweek for Totally Tilda, as you know it's Tilda's Wedding this time and for this week I've had a change from a card and made a hanger,
I'm also combining this with my crafty heart DT

I have used some gorgeous hearts that I got from Ann Marie designs at a craft fair I went to a few months ago,

Delightful Tilda is coloured with my distress re-inkers and then cut out, she has glitter on her dress but you can't make that out too clearly,
the beautiful paper is by Prima and is from the Tea Thyme pad,
I distressed the edges with vintage photo distress ink,
 I used ribbon at the back to hold them all together but at the front for added detail I cut two lots of the Memory Box Precious hearts, glued them together for strength then added frantage on top, all links below,
pearls are by Hero Arts, flowers from the ribbon girl,Wild orchid crafts and stash
the bell charm I covered lightly with  crackle paint,
Here I've used a Tim Holtz film strip and too finish it off added a gorgeous Tim Holtz Idea-ology bauble,

Blue and green at La-La Land crafts

Hi guys, back again this week for our Inspiration Friday challenge at 
this time it's to use blue and green,
As you can see I've coloured Wheelbarrow Marci with my distress re-inkers, I've run out of my favourite water colour paper so have used another, not so happy with it so it's off to the shop to order some more of the good one lol,
I love the use of corrugated card but had none so i used some plain cardstock, used my machine that makes mock ripples and added a little gesso on the top lol,

Papers are Magnolia and Pion I think, the LLLC heart banner I edged with vintage photo,
