My Little Chickadee!

Aww how cute, holding this fluffy chick, this stamp is called Hey
Chickie and she is a Wags n Whiskers rubber stamp available
here. This card I am entering into three challenges,
Papertake Weekly Challenge Which asks for Lilac and Lemon
Wags n Whiskers Which asks for W & W stamp plus make your own
flowers and finally
Sketch Saturday with this fab sketch which I have rotated.
I think this little cutie fits all the briefs! Papers are from a pad
I think its an old PM one? Sorry, coloured my cutie pie with
water colour paints,

home made flowers are made with organza
ribbon and button, ribbon, lace and other flowers from stash,
sentiment is again I think PM, Have a lovely Friday and a great
weekend, Happy Crafting, Sue xx

Bloomin' Nice....

Hello to all your lovely bloggers, hope you are all well and creating
lots of hand made goodies, I have been having a little play today
with the papers I won in Nikki's candy and have come up with
this...the papers are the gorgeous Cosmo Cricket Joy Ride, I have
made the flower by cutting strips with my fancy scissors
and wrapping them in circles which I reduced in size as I went
along, then stuck them all inside each other, the back of the large
bloomer is from a large daisy punch. The heart leaves have been
drawn freehand and cut out. Tag is distressed with TH Vintage
Photo, sentiment from PC button from stash. Not my usual style
but it's the beginning of spring so thought I'd produce a large
bloomer! Hee hee, might even show it at Chelsea! TFL Sue xx

Two Card Tuesday, whooo....

Hello and happy Tuesday to you all, I hope you are embracing this
glorious weather! although I must say it is quite deceiving, there am
I opening all the windows, next minute I had to put my heating on
as I was feeling cold!
I have made two cards today for two separate challenges the first
one is for the Sugar Bowl Challenge 31 following Judy's fab sketch
with the please include being Stars. So here is my little Rock
Star, with added stars, now this little rubber stamp is definitely
a Sugar Nellie but he doesn't appear to be on their website any
longer, can someone help? I can't think why, he is gorgeous!
I also forgot to put my base paper on before I stuck these two
pieces down, duh! I did try and lift them off but gave up as I
did not want a distressed look this time! Hee hee. I have water
coloured my image and used some eyelets for the centre stars
and the four corners, I have even got out some shrink plastic
(I forgot what fun this is) so I stamped and cut the corners of
this fab green shrinky stuff
then heated to make this little tag, tied with string,
which you can see got caught up because the hole was
too small but I like this effect ha ha so left it! the stamp
is from Dovecraft.
Keep Rockin sentiment was done with doodlebug rub-ons.
Now my next card is for the Digital Tuesday Challenge 50
which asks for something for St.Patrick's Day or lots of
Green! so here is my little take on this fab challenge,

This cutie little pie is called Lillian and she is a free
digi download from the lovely Scrapfairy blog here
those fabby four leaf clover flowers have been made
with my heart punches, large and small and fixed
together in the middle and I have cut the stalks out
freehand, how fab are they didn't even have to
look too hard for them ha! the little ditty (as they
say) I found in a Children's Big book of Stories and
Nursery Rhymes, I was reading some to my niece
on Sunday and came across this one!........ just to
let you know I had forgotten how horrible the
story of Snow White was!!! the Queen first tried
to strangle her, then sent the huntsman out to
kill her and bring back her heart and liver (which
he killed a bear and brought that back, and she
ate it)!!! Crikey!! then poisoned her, blimey
just because she was jealous of her beauty!! Scary
or what, who wants that weight on their shoulders!
anyway getting back to my card, water coloured
the lovely Lillian, I was itching to paint her pink
maybe next time, Think that's everything, have
a lovely evening, TFL, Happy Crafting, Sue xx

Magnolia Sketch with my....Goodies Galore!

Wahoo, well look at all this lovely stash, I didn't know where to
start when all this arrived from the lovely Nikki at Bunny Zoe's
my fab candy win had so many lovely things. So I thought the
best thing to do was to make a Thank you card to start with,
then use each stamp for a different challenge, I can now enter
so many more Hooray!! So a big Thank you Nikki also for your
adorable card, please click for a close up!. Here is my card (hope
you have received it by now)? I have followed Bev's fab sketch on

the Just Magnolia Challenge Blog, isn't this Tilda a little cutie,
you will find her here along with lots of other fabulous crafting
goodies! Papers are from Papermania Rose Garden collection
and are my faves at the moment, I just love all these Chintzy
Roses and Lushy Loo colours too! I really didn't want to cover
this paper up so I used a fab wide organza ribbon for the side
panel so the paper can show through, the bottom panel is
made from Cosmo Cricket paper punched swirls with x cut
punch. Butterfly is MS, flower with pearl centre from stash,
I have also punched one of the small roses with a small heart
shape punch which I have dangled from Tilda's hand. Tilda
has been coloured with my water colour paints, sentiment
from PC, Think that's everything, happy Friday to you all
and Happy Crafting, TFL, Sue xx
