Santorro Poppy Girl

I bought some Santorro stamps a while ago from a craft fair so decided to actually use them, shock horror!
I coloured her to match the tones in the Prima papers and cut her out using this lovely dainty pique edge cut out corner die from Marianne. It's a lovely set with a number of dies graduating in size so very versatile.The round flourish die is also a new one - full details below.

Marianne Products Used

Round Flourish Die - LR0530

That's all for now folks, hope it's called down where you are as it has here - and we're getting a bit of rain which is much needed!

Pedalling Friends!

This is the gorgeous Tandem from Mo's Digital Pencil and I'm not sure how I've missed the image in Mo's store before.  I love their faces - they look as though they're having so much fun, although I'm sure the mouse in the front is doing all the pedalling!  The sentiment comes with too!

My papers are Basic Grey, such a shame they stopped trading.  The lacy edged frame and the strawberry dies are Marianne - details below:

Lacy edge Frame - Anja's Squares - LR0242
Strawberry Die - LR0510 
I'm helping Holly again today on her plastic free pop-up shop, Goodness and Grain, so have an early start!

Dies and Punches Challenge at Passion for Promarkers

Today's challenge starting today at Passion for Promarkers wants to see Dies and/or Punches being used which is kinda great as we all tend to use at least one right!  
I've used this cute digi image from Digi Stamp Boutique who can now be found under the Lili of the Valley umbrella. 

 I decided to make four cards for stash as it's quite a simple image to colour and I thought it would be good to show her in a few colourways.

For my dies I've used a stitched rectangle die  and a sunflower die from Marianne, details below, and the fence is a Tim Holtz die. Oh and the green papers used in the bottom card are Marianne too. The rest are Basic Grey.

Marianne Products Used

Basic Shapes Stitched Rectangle - CR1390
Sunflower Die - LR0361
Green Floral Paper from Country Style Pad - PK9130

The sentiment comes with the image!

And a bad group photo - say cheese!

Our prize for this week's  challenge is a set of Promarkers so come and join in the challenge!  If you'd like some inspiration hop on over here to the challenge blog to see the fab cards from my teamies.

I was reminded of this image the other day when  I was out in the garden blowing bubbles with Violet. And of course, I had to make her a curly blonde as our little V has such lovely curls!!  The image is Fairy Tabia from Mo's Digital Pencil and she could be going soon so grab her here while you can!
The little lace circle die is Mariane as is the dotty embossing folder, details below.

Lili of The Valley Polka Dots Baby

I couldn't resist this new digi image from Lili of The Valley when it came out recently!   He/She is called Polka Dots and is such a sweetie.  I know loads of littluns who have had a snuggle bunny too so extra cute!!
I've coloured the image with my Promarkers and added some white gel pen to the polka dotsto make them pop.
My papers are First Edition, the sentiment is Inkadinkadoo.  The little babygros are Memory Box but can't remember who the animal border die is by!  Of course, I do know that that Baby Fawn is Marianne - COL1401.

We have our Violet this afternoon for Nanny and Grandad time, so need to do a few jobs first.
At least it's Friday- happy weekend everyone!
