CAS Stamping Bella

Today's card is a rather clean and simple  for me using this fab Stamping Bella image which I got at Farnborough show earlier this year.    I love her expression and her hair!!

That's it for now but I do hope you have a fabulous day and a fabulous weekend!!

Shiny and New Grandma Card for Passion for Promarkers Anything Goes 10th Anniversary Challenge

Sorry I've not posted this earlier but I wasn't sure if my sister had received it!  She has recently become a Grandma to Theo and I'm so thrilled for her and her family - happy days!  It's also the 10th Anniversary of the Passion for Promarkers challenge - wow, and I think I've been on the team for most of that time!  (Tells you what a lovely lot they are!)

Both teams have joined together for this challenge and we have a host of fantastic prizes - see below.

My image is Shiny and New from Mo's Digital Pencil and is just perfect with this sentiment from a Marianne set.  The ribbon frame and label are also from Marianne designs - the label is actually the smallest die in the set - details below.

Moon Baby from Mo's Digital Pencil

Today's card was made for the newest addition to our family, our great-nephew, Theo, who was born to Hannah and James on May 4th!
I'd already made the card as Love You to The Moon and Back is a very special sentiment for my sister and her family so Moon Baby from Mo's Digital Pencil was just perfect! But then he was born overdue and born on Star Wars Day so just wanted to add War into the sentiment but didn't!
The sentiment is PTI but pretty much everything else was from Marianne Designs, full details below.

List of Marianne Products used

Star Circle - CR1447
Star Flourish - CR1294
Letter Garland Dies - LR0340
Papers - Eline's Stars -PB7049

Lavinia Fairies for my magical girl!

It was our Holly's birthday earlier this week and she's such a nature girl, I thought she would love a Lavinia scene - this could be her and Violet!!  

I made the background with Distress Oxides and then coloured in with my Arteza waterbrush pens.  I've then added some Distress Oxides for the ground and edging.

I meant to stamp the blessings words stamp before I added the fairies and flowers etc but forgot but  instead I stamped it on after with Memory Box London Fog so it still has that faded into the background!

I'm also entering my card into this month's Lavinia challenge where the theme is Make It Bright.

Passion for Promarkers - Summer is Coming challenge

Just nipping on quickly while Grandy is occupying Violet who we've had overnight while Holly had a night away for her birthday - camping mind you but she says it's been wonderful and the weather is so fabulous it was perfect timing!

Anyway, our new challenge at PFP starts today with a theme of Summer is Coming and what says Summer more than the sea and mermaids right!  This gorgeous image is Mermaid and Baby and is one of many beautiful images from A Day for Daisies, our sponsors this week!

Funny, I was pleased with this card until I put it together and now, hhmm - wish I'd done the top part differently but there you go. I just love this border from Marianne though so went with it - full list of Marianne products used below:

Lacy edged Circle - CR1331
Scroll Border - CR1442
Oyster Shell - CR1407
Coral Leaves - CR1406
Leaves - LR0229/LR0571

As I said, our sponsors are the fabulous A Day for Daisies, and the DT have been lucky enough to work with lots of their images - check them out here.  
The lucky winner will be given a voucher to spend in ADFD online store so come and join in the challenge!

Baby Fairy Daffodil

I know this is a bit late for Easter but still great for a spring card!  This little cutie is Baby Fairy Daffodil from Mo's Digital Pencil of course!
It's a very simple card for me but I love these papers so didn't want to cover them over.  The stitched frame die is from Marianne - CR1467 from their April 19 release - and the daffodil is also Marianne - LR0399.

Have a great weekend peeps!

Mo Ballet Practice Girl

I'm a real ballet fan and did quite a lot when I was much, much younger - but not now!!  However,  I love this image, Ballet Practice,  from Mo's Digital Pencil, it's so elegant!   She's just perfect too for the new challenge starting today at Mo's DP2 challenges where the theme is always Anything Goes but we also have an optional theme of  For The Girls and she is just perfect for that!  
I've added some Shabby White Frantage to the wooden ballet dancer and corner flourish, and the papers are Maja Designs.  And of course a few Marianne dies have sneaked in there!

Marianne Products Used

Frame - LR0318
Lace Die - LR0508
Bow Die - LR0464

Have a great bank holiday weekend everyone, I think I'm going to be transplanting some shrubs and perenniels to try and get our garden under control - it's just  never ending especially at this time of year!
