Princess for a Day..

...that's just what this little Tilda image reminds me of.  This little card I am going
to enter into the Just Magnolia challenge blog where the theme is make a Birthday
Card, I think this fits the bill nicely :0) Tilda has been coloured with my watercolour
paints, doily is from Dovecraft, sentiment done using doodlebug rub ons,plus lots of sparkly stickles and diamante gems.  Thanks for looking, Happy Crafting, Sue xx

Summertime has arrived!!!

Yippee!! ...better late than never : 0) and to celebrate I thought I would
enter the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, they have had a bit of a make
over and it is now held on the first Saturday of each month.
The theme for this month (July) is Summertime.....and the living is easy,
there is also a blog hop to celebrate, so hop on over if you fancy playing
along!  I have seen lots of hexagonal shapes on cards lately so I
stamped these lovely little images onto white
card and cut out the shapes freehand, distressed edges with TH Vintage Photo and coloured images with Promarkers.
Papers are BG Lemonade, Oh I do love that pad, the little sentiment.....It's
a kiss, It's a Smile, it's a sip of wine......It's Summertime! was done on PC. TFL Happy Crafting, Sue xx

Magical Snow Globes

Hello lovely Crafters, a very Happy Thursday to you all, :0) xx well, as I am typing this the sun is shining, Oh No! hang on a minute a large black cloud has just covered it up again! Oh well! at least I had a little peek! Firstly I want to tell you something very, very funny; it's really rude and made me blush!!! You know how we like to grab other crafters attention with our Post Title, well........

I think I would have been chucked off blogger if I had posted my first title.  I wanted to round my title up in one word.....can you guess what that word was? I will give you a clue; I have been making cards with those lovely display globes and the fantastic new Traditional Christmas Snow Globe CD from Katy Sue Designs....any ideas? well it was.................shhhhh...... Snowglobing!!!......Innocently, moi thought
this sounded pretty cool, are you on my page?........Well, (luckily for me, I wasn't sure if it was one word or two),  checked google, well good job I did!!!  O.M.G. Oooh Err Missus! I have never heard of that kind of meaning.......well you learn something every day!.........cough! I LOVE MY SHELTERED LIFE!  Now, swiftly getting back to my cards, This CD has 20 of the most beautiful scenes for you to display in those lovely globes or as you can see from my easel card, just as a lovely decoupaged without the globes.  The CD also has matching inserts for your cards and amazingly boxes to match, which I must point out, are the easiest ones I have made up. I also
put into the Snow Globe the wonderful Polar White Flower Soft, it works wonders with any snow scene, I have also used their Glitter Frosting to emphasise the snow, which looks so real, you can
just see the difference on the snowflake at the top, the before and after frosting effect.  I hope you
like them, TFL, Happy Crafting, Sue xx

I asked for a flower.......

.......he gave me a Garden,

I asked for a tree, He gave me a forest,
I asked for a river, He gave me an ocean,
I asked for a friend, He gave me you.
I love that sentiment
and also this Floral Design CD both from Katy Sue Designs
I have made so many female birthday cards, thank you cards,
thinking of you cards etc;
from this CD, it has so many different flowers and shape variations you can just print off and arrange, all compatible with your Spellbinders dies too! not
that I have any as I don't possess a die cutting machine! ahhhhh, well I am tempted, if anyone has
one they are not going to use or an old one I may be interested in buying it from you, just to get
me started!  So in the meantime I will stick with my faithful x cut scissors.  Here are two I made earlier with these lovely Viola Flowers, the backing papers are so soft and feminine.  Three cards, three days, I'm on a roll :0) xx TFL, Happy Crafting, Sue xx

Everything Stops for Tea!

Hello lovely bloggers, well two posts in two days!! Can you beleive it!
I just had to show you my
new design template I made.  I am definately a T pot that's for sure and I do
like to make time for tea and cake with my friends, as often as I can really! ;o)))))))
So when I saw a similar one on the Shabby
Blog I set too to make my own little design.
What do you think? of course it can be made in an array of different papers and you can also
add any little embellies that might take your
fancy? If anyone would like a copy of my
free template, just drop me an email and I will mail you one, TFL, Happy Crafting, Sue xx

The Magic of Christmas

"Oh Dear",  I hear you cry!  Please not Christmas cards, not yet! we are still waiting for
our Summer!!! Well that's exactly what I thought when those lovely ladies at Katy Sue
Designs  sent me their new Christmas CD and goodies.  Do you remember the Wishing on a
Star CD, stamps and silhouette stickers? It was so very popular, well, this Christmas
set is exactly the same concept but with a Winter Wonderland and Winter Town theme
and you can make the most amazing and beautiful cards with this one as you could the last
one! :0)) Happy Days!
They are being showcased this week on a special 4 day deal on the Create and Craft Channel,
they are exclusive until the 13th July then they will be available to buy these direct from their website.
Here are some of my designs that I have made with some of those beautiful products:-
