Good morning peeps & Happy Easter.
The Easter bunny has been very kind to me & bought me lots of lovely yummy chocolate, o.k so I am the Easter bunny in my house but that's irrelevant lol.
Today is new challenge day at
& this fortnights challenge is
Medium - distressed inks
Flowers - Kort & Gort & Wild Orchid
Pearls - Blue Moon
Sparkle - crystal glamour dust
Tools - MS eyelet lace punch around the page, Magnolia Doo Hickey Swirl, Marianne Designs foliage die ( a present from lovely Liz, thanks hun xx)
I've used one of my favourite Magnolia papers Lace Flowers to paper piece sweet Tilda's dress. I masked the butterfly's wings off so I just stamped the body and antenna onto my card and stamped, coloured, glittered & fussy cut 2 butterflies and adhered the body only so I could 3D them. I made the buttons by stamping them onto the Lace Flowers paper and then covering them with glossy accents.
I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Just Magnolia - fab sketch, Cupcake Craft - lots of layers, Everybody Art - pearls, Ladybug Crafts - anything goes, Top Tip Tuesday - open challenge, 7 Kids - Easter/Spring, Anything Goes - pink & brown, Cooking It Up With Katie - recipe, Flutterby Wednesday - open theme, CRAFT - flowers, Delightful Challenge - paper piecing / peircing, Hanna & Friends - pink & brown, Crafts 4 Eternity - handmade buttons, Stamp Something - flowers, buttons & sparkle
Some of you may remember I posted a piccy a little while ago of the problem I often have when I try and photograph my card, as you can see once again Daisy Mae gets between the card and the camera, that little girl isn't camera shy lol.
I'm still battling with the garden trying to get it all weeded, painted, tidied etc, I will get there but I am so slow as I have to keep stopping to rest my shoulder. I always remember what my friend Louie used to say "a garden is never finished, there's always work to be done" He didn't half talk a load of rubbish a lot of the time, but I think he was actually right with that one which is probably why I remember it so well lol.
Before I go I've a quick reminder that the
special children's challenge is still running until Saturday the 30th of April, so hide your copics, get out those pencils and let the kiddies have a play.
Thanks for stopping by
