Millie With Watering Can

Not sure if I'm being a little optimistic saying Hello Spring but it's nearly here!!  This is Millie with Watering Can from Mo's Digital Pencil- such a cutie.  She also comes with a Happy Mother's Day sentiment, so would perfect for that day which is in a couple of weeks here in the UK.

This is a list of the Marianne Dies etc that I've used - love these laced edge dies!

Lace Edge Frame Dies - Oval - CR1500 - NEW
                          - Square CR1475
Flower Tag from Big/Little Die Set - CR1353
Sentiment  - Easter set - CS1044 - NEW

The little watering can is from Impression Obsession and the papers are My Minds Eye, Pretty Please - a freebie with a magazine quite a while ago!

Have a great weekend!

PFP Dies and Punches

Today's card is for our new challenge at Passion for Promarkers with a fab theme chosen by Marie of Dies and Punches - I do love me a die!!
The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil - Carry The Cake - and is just perfect set in the centre of these little cake box segments made with a die from Marianne Designs!
The little rolled flower comes with the box die but the candles are from another Marianne set  and fits perfectly into the rolled flower which I've used as a candle holder. (Details of Marianne goodies below).
The boxes open too and make lovely little gift boxes for lovely little gifts which is exactly what I used my whole 'cake' for.  So easy to make up too - the segment is all cut with one die and then there is just a little folding and sticking!

Marianne Products Used
Cake Die Set - CR1462
Candle Dies from Candle Bridge set - CR1427

I hope you like our theme and come and join in the challenge at PFP.  More inspiration from my teamies are also on the PFP blog here.

Gillie from Mo's Digital Pencil in February 20 Making Cards Magazine

Now that the new March edition of Making Cards Magazine is out here in the UK, I can share my cards that were featured in the magazine last month, for Mo's Digital Pencil.

This is the gorgeous Gillie sitting on her rock in the sea - I think it must have been during Storm Dennis by the look of her hair blowing everywhere!  You can find her here in Mo's store.

The Papers are Prima - Alla Prima, I think,  and the wildflower dies are from a Tim Holtz Wildflower set but I can't remember off had which set!

That's all for now from me.

Happy Tuesday!

PFP Photo Inspiration Challenge Fairy Godmother

Morning folks.  Today's card is for the new challenge over on Passion for Promarkers with a fabulous photo inspiration chosen by our lovely Lisa.
No photo description available.
Isn't that a beautiful picture!  I've chosen the pink and gold colours for the main inspiration for my card which I've made using a favourite image from Mo's Digital Pencil -  Godmother.

The image and sentiment (which comes with the image) have been cut with an MFT Die set - Wonky Stitched Rectangles and I've also used the following Marianne Designs Products.

Feeling Blue? Here's a Peeking Sloth!

Another blue card from me today - love Peeking Sloth - looks like he's partied out already!  You can find him here in Mo's Digital Pencil store. The sentiment die is an oldish one from Memory Box but  think this little guy looks perfect slumped over the edge!!

He's really great value for money too as he comes without the pressie and accessories and with a couple of sentiments!!

Hope it doesn't get too windy where you are today!

Hugs, Julie

Mona - for Digital Pencil Too challenge starting today

I'm absolutely having a blue period in my cards at the moment, thanks to the fabulous Faye Wynn- Jones, who used this colour palette on Facebook recently - I love it!!  Something else I love is Mona from Mo's Digital Pencil and she is for the new challenge over on the Digital Pencil Too challenge blog which is all about the Love!!
Some fabulous new Marianne goodies too for February including the frame and the sprigs, details below.
Oval Lace Frame - CR1500 - NEW!
Twigs - CR1449 - NEW!
Mini Tag and Sentiment set - CS1029

Eagle-eyed Mo fans may spot that the lollipop is a bit on the large side - but this is because I coloured the original so badly that I had to print off the image again and die cut the lolly to cover up my mistake!  I think I got away with it!

Oh and I coloured the blue bow made of String in the same blue tones to match!
