My first My Time To Craft DT Card - Doilies and Flowers

Hi all as you may have been aware from a previous post I was chosen to join the wonderful DT along at My Time to Craft. I am so grateful to have been given this position and will be inspired to create many much needed cards for my family and friends as well as those to sell. 

After having been notified on Sunday I had been given this position I got straight onto making my first DT card before going out for my last night shift. This is the card I have made.

 I have made this card for an order I had. The customer wanted a Mother's Day card and she wanted a butterfly and floral theme. The brief for the challenge this time was perfect for this card. I have used backing papers and embelishments from the Crafter's Companion Strawberry Kisses CD. The stamped image is from Dimension Forth and I have coloured this with spectrum noir pens which was stamped onto neenah card stock. Matts are coordinations from the brights section. I have added Tim Holtz distress ink to the backing papers and neenah once I had coloured the image. I added floral details and stickles to complete the card.

So what you waiting for? Why not pop over to My Time to Craft now and join in with the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by

Vintage Floral Butterfly Tree Canvas

Hi all This is a Canvas I have created. I've been working on it over a few weeks now. I initially decorated the base of the canvas with various papers, inks, paints, texture paste and script stamps; and painted the tree but was then stuck on what to add to it. I left it for a while whilst I came up with what I wanted to do. Then I decided I wanted some bigger flowers, and found some Prima flowers and added some additional mixed media elements and smaller flowers I already had in my stash. Along with glitters and diamante embellishments. I also die cut a fancy flourish for the corner (not that you can see much of it, oops) and a quote. I did two layers for the die cuts and glued them together so that they were thicker. Well here's a picture of it   I'm quite pleased with how it has turned out.  This is a video which shows some of the elements in more detail. You can even see the glitter sparkling. (Sorry it's a bit shaky I used my phone. It'

You make my heart happy card and hello again!!

 Hi everyone, can't believe it's been 3 1/2 years since I last blogged. Thought I'd start it up again. I've still been creating and sharing bits on my Facebook page. A lot has happened since I last posted, I was quiet unwell in 2017 and needed surgery to sort out a condition I was going through. Then when I felt well I found out that I was pregnant. We now have a lovely little boy called Joshua. He's 2 1/2 years now. We've also moved house and have been renovating it. We're all done now thankfully.  Right now time to share the card I finished yesterday. This is made using a stamped image by Lee Holland Called With Love . It's produced by Crafter's Companion. I love how cute and fun this image is. I think this range of stamps will soon become my new favourite stamps. I colured the image using my spectrum noir colourblend pencils.  The backing papers are digital ones I've had a while on my PC from Nitwit Collections.  I've mat and layered onto
