Punch of Colour

Punch of Colour 


Hi everyone, before I share my latest make with you all today, I would 
just like to say a huge thank you to everyone that has sent messages of 
support over these last few weeks, they really helped to lift my spirits and 
remind me of just how lucky I am to have so many wonderful and thoughtful 
friends and you mean the world to me. 


Well the weather has been lovely here these past few days so I've been 
spending some time in the garden. Sadly, nothings started to bloom as yet 
(only the pansies) but fingers crossed that over the next few weeks, the 
gardens will be full of colourful blooms. 



Anyhoo onto a card that I made using another of my Hannah Lynn 
"Punch of Colour Girls" images. I coloured this one up a few days ago 
using a selection of Pro/Flexmarkers.







I used the following to make this card 

First Edition Design Papers, Marianne Corner Die, Die Namics Circle Dies, 
Tonic NUVO Glitter Drops & Glossy Drops and Ranger Glossy Accents.







I used Promarker & Flexmarkers in the following colours 

Cool Grey 1, 2, 4 & 5
Soft Aqua, Cool Aqua, Oasis & Frosted Jade 
I then added some Sakura Gelly Roll to highlight and also 
some Glossy Accents on the lenses of her Spectacles 







I'm off now to mow the lawns and I'll be back again soon, 
have a fab week everyone :)

Flower Power Challenge TPS #251

The Paper Shelter Challenge #251 


Hi everyone, It's time for a new challenge over at 

The Paper Shelter 




and this time the challenge theme is  

Flower Power 


So here's my DT make for the Challenge, I thought that because it's 
the 1st of June and the time of Summer Weddings that I would make 
a card for the bride to be. The beautiful Paper Shelter image I've used 
is called "The Bride" and you can find her HERE!!  I've also used one 
of The Paper Shelter's gorgeous digi design papers too and this set of 
papers is called " The Happy Couple" and you can find them 






When I made this card I wanted to make it in a sepia tone, so I printed 
both the beautiful image (I know, I've cheated a bit with this card lol) and 
the design paper in a sepia tone. I then used some oyster coloured from 
Hunkydory and a Joy Craft Anja Die and Die  Namics Pierced Circle die 
to frame the card and image.






The beautiful blooms are mostly from Petal-Lu with the exception of 
the rose and rosebuds which are from WOC. 






And last but not least is the Oyster coloured silk ribbon, hand tied bow 
and the Ivory pearls, oh and not forgetting some NUVO glitter drops 
which were added to the blooms and around the image.

Lavender's Blue....

Lavender's Blue...

Hi everyone, I hope that you're all well, I've been making the most of the 
lovely weather that we've been having these past few days and have started 
going on my walks again. Today's walk took me along the
 Castle Eden Walkway which is just 5 minutes away from where I live, I'm
so lucky to have the choice of  walking in woodland or walking along the 
beach aren't I. I was hoping to find frog spawn at the pond but maybe it's a 
little early yet after all Spring was rather late coming this year. 

Anyhow, when I got back from my walk yesterday I spent some time crafting, 
and I have made this card using one of my new images from 

The Paper Shelter 

The image I've used is called 

The Music Practice 






Card Recipe
Hunkydory Adorable Scorable, Papermania Capsule French Lavender design papers, 
Gingham Ribbon and hand tied bow, Treble Clef charm, Creative Expressions 
*String Flowers* die, Joy Crafts Noor Design Border die, Whimsy Tag die and 
2mm, 4mm & 6mm Flatbacked pearls






I coloured this gorgeous *The Paper Shelter* image using a selection of Pro/Flexmarkers.






This piece of music paper was in my Mums stash and I just colourised it with 
Satin Promarker and a Blender Pen





This is a close up of the beautiful design papers and the Treble Clef Charm.






The sentiment was printed out on word, I them colourised it with the Satin Promarker 
& Blender pen. next I cut it out using the Whimsy die, then I cut some of the Adorable 
Scorable and offset the sentiment to create a frame.






Now these beautiful blooms were made using my newest die which I bought 
from Hochanda, having watched the lovely Lisa Horton demoing them, they're 
from Creative Expressions and the dies called String Flowers....I absolutely 
LOVE them!!





Well that's all from me for the time being. 
Have a fab day everyone.

Finally Finished It....

Finally Finished It....


Hi everyone, I'm so pleased to say that I've finally finished decorating and 
up-doing the bedroom furniture *breathes sigh of relief* 
It's taken me so long to get everything done because I've had to do it 
in stages, but at least it's done now and I'm so happy with the way it 
looks now. 
As those of you who follow me will know, it all started whilst I was still 
on the Aurora Wings DT and I coloured some images and I decided to 
frame them to hang in our bedroom, so that's what I did I bought some Baroque 
frames and painted them with Earl Grey Everlong chalk paint, I then mounted 
the images onto some A3 Centura Pearl, mount board and added the title of 
each of the images. 





I coloured the images with a selection of Pro/Flexarkers and I then added 
some Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll to add some sparkle.








This are all four finished pictures all ready to hang.













We then decided (that's the royal we by the way lol) to decorate the bedroom.






The bear that you see peeking out between the scatter cushions is my 
teddy bear Marmaduke, who I've had since I was a baby... I think that 
he's ageing better than me lol :)




These glass jars started out as believe it or now coffee jars lol, I covered them with 
2.5 inch guipure lace and added some ribbon and a bow.





And last but not least this is the Jewellery box that I made as a DT make for 
Aurora Wings.




Well I hope you weren't to bored with all my pictures lol
