Princess Pia

Good morning bloggers. Firstly I have to say thank you to my niece who helped me finish my card. I am not sure what I have done but I have a really painful shoulder at the moment!. I was half way through my Diva's DT card and had almost decide that I could not finish it because of the pain but my 7 year old niece came to the rescue in the form of manning the cuttlebug and generally helping out so thank you very much Amelia.


Now onto today's Diva by Design challenge. This weeks theme is Glitter and Sparkle sponsored byKenny K. We have generously  been given some images to play with and I chose Princess Pia.

As you can see from my card I got a bit carried away with the purple hair and the glitter!!!!!!!!!!!


The image is coloured using Copics and lashings of stickles. The papers are DCWV called Chateau Lavender which I bought from the Glitter pot a few months ago. I have matted my paper onto some silver mirri board for added sparkle (as if I needed any more!) Amelia kindly cut my…

Well thank heaven its Friday because I am definitely in need of a lay in!!!!! Friday also means another fabby challenge at Stampin for the weekend. Our theme this time is Texture. Just add something with texture to your card recipe and enter our challenge.  Our sponsor this time is in2stamps.


 For my DT card I have used a Magnolia Christmas stamp from the 2010 collection I think. I have coloured her using my Copic's. The gorgeous quirky Christmas tree die I bought from the Glitter pot at the weekend. I dont think that you can tell from the photography but there is quite a lot of depth to this card. I have used foam pads under each layer. The lace and ribbon are from my stash of bits and bobs.

Internet down all weekend

Hi Every one. I have been trying to catch up with some of blogging this afternoon. I have had to go all weekend without internet. It started playing up last week then Friday night nothing. I thought not to worry it will be back up by the morning. How wrong was I. We called BT Saturday afternoon and had to run through the endless checks still nothing. BT inform my husband they can't come out over the weekend it will have to wait until Monday. Ok I can live with that.....I didn't bank on a discontented 12 year old son who refuses to believe  that life can go on without internet!!!!!!! Every half an hour on Sunday are you sure the internet is down, you get the picture. Well todays appointment was any time from 8am till 4pm.  I have to go to work so I left my 22 year old daughter in charge. Much moaning this is my day off and she finally agrees.
My daughter rings me at work and says that here is a whole fleet of BT vans outside. Apparently the whole street is now down!.

DT for Stampin for the Weekend

Image
Well where did the last two weeks go? They seem to have flown by meaning that it is time for another challenge over at stampin for the weekend. Our theme this time is all stitched up, faux or real the decision is yours.
We are very lucky this week to have 2 lovely sponsors... Lily of the Valley and Simon says Stamp




For my DT card I have used an oh so cute image by Lili of the Valley called a Christmas bear present. The paper s are First edition. The Christmas sentiment is by Wild Rose Studios. The chipboard snow flakes I bought from the Craft Barn last year. I have coloured my image using Copic's and embellished with a little stickles and some machine stitching. My shaped card was cut using a Cricut.


Inside the card I have created a little pocked and stamped out Christmas recipe cards by Lili of the Valley.


Thanks for stopping by  Hugs Jayne

Good morning, wasn't yesterday cold! I am sure that on the way home from work I felt snow......

Right onto the real reason that that I am here this morning, It's time for a new challenge over at Diva's  by Design and this time we want to see something CUTE. Our generous sponsor for this challenge is Joanna Sheen. 


For my DT card I have inked up a stamp that I have had for while now but have never taken her out of the draw! (Thats really bad isn't it?) Her name is Jelly Pip by Sugar Nellie. I have teamed her up with some of my last sheets of Portobello road by paper mania. I have really enjoyed using these papers and when I bought them it was..... I like then what can I use then with?#


The card base is by Craftwork cards. I have zig zag stitched around the edge to give another dimension and of course I just had to use one of my new favorite flowers made with my Cricut. The frames have been cut using Nesties and the image coloured with Copic's. The lace and ribbon ar…
