Perfect Day

Here is my entry for this weeks Friday Sketchers.
I've used a Penny Black Teddy stamp coloured with Copics.
The papers are DCWV Latte and the flowers are prima hydrangeas and some new ones from Joanna Sheen (I forget what they are) the centers of the flowers are iridescent stones from Bunny Zoe's and I really like them as the colours are nice and subtle.I tidied my craft room and put a few stamps on ebay so I treated myself to some bits from Bunny Zoe's online store, why have I never shopped there before???!? I got some gorgeous High Hopes stamps that I've coveted for ages!
Thanks for looking and for the lovely comments you leave x

Distressed Tilda

Something a little different from me today, I've had a go at distressing, I'm not very good at it I'm afraid!
I wanted this card to look like someone has taken the lid off an old box of someones keepsakes and found an old photo in amongst the letters and trinkets.
I'm entering it in the Just Magnolia Challenge and the Cute Card Thursday Challenge, which are both to use flowers this week and Magnolia challenge is to use hearts as well, hence the heart charm, well that's not hard for me as I love using flowers on my cards! I didn't go too OTT with the flowers today though, just a red and purple rose (that was white and was coloured with Copics).
The image is from the Magnolia winter collection, most of which have ended up on Ebay I'm afraid to say, it was the first time I bought the collection and probably the last :(
I put Tilda on top of the piano without thinking until I saw another card (I forget who's- sorry) where they sat her on the seat, which would have been much more appropriate! Oh well, we live and learn! I have seen a lot of discussion about the 'dressy older' type of Tilda and how people see her as a little girl, but I think she's still cute.
Thanks for looking x

Pretty in Pink

This card is made with a cute Penny Black image called Guess What!? (That's the name of the stamp, I'm not asking you to guess! Hehe)
The papers are from a papermania scrapbooking kit and I have nearly used them all, If anyone knows if they sell them in a pack or something I'd love to get some more. Flowers are a mix of Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima.
I'm entering this card into the blog challenges below:

Thanks for looking x

Rainy days

Hello again, log time no post! I'm back with my first new card this year!

The stamp is an old favorite by Joan Elliot and I've coloured it with copics. I got two new sets for Christmas, one from my parents and one from my lovely boyfriend, so I now have all the Ciao markers, been eyeing up the sketch ones now!!!
Papers are from DCWV, ribbon, pins and gems from my stash, sentiment is WOJ. How I made a card without flowers on I'll never know!!!
