Ladybug Love

Hi all, hope everyones having a great Sunday, I'm not sure about this card I'm sharing today, but I luv the image, it's another new digi from Crafts & Me, called Ladybug Love.

I,ve used promarkers & flexmarkers to colour her, the heart backing paper is from Joanna Sheens Precious Petals cd rom, which I,ve distressed along with my card layers & added ink.  I,ve used a Marianne die behind my image and the lace, heart button, gems, ribbon and butterfly are all from my stash.  Thanks so much for taking the time to have a little look today, its much appreciated.

Luv Maria

Yet another thank you card (hope they like mermaids!)

Hi, everyone, wow! I,ve just discovered Crafts & Me, what a fab shop, great choice of stamps, both rubber & digis (I can feel my bank balance shrinking by the second, lol).  I downloaded a few digis the other day & the one I'm using today is called Hidden Treasure (my something new for the fab 'n' funky challenge).  Sooo lovely to colour, well, kept me quiet for a while :)

I,ve used promarkers & flexmarkers to colour my image & blue, white & silver acrylic pearlescent paints around my papers, card & the lace.  The papers are from Joanna Sheens Precious Petals cd rom, once again (I can't help it, this cd rom is fantastic, if only for the lush papers) and also blueberry pie from Papermanias capsule collection.

The lace I've used (which isn't very clear in piccie, sorry, is and old curtain, lol.  I also found a packet full of the dolphin buttons the other day when I was having a sort out :)
Basically I didn't know when to stop with this one, all the other items are from my stash, oh & garden, chuckle.

Thanks so much 4 looking today

Hi all, just wanted to share this card I made for a baby boy, and thought I may enter it into the Joanna Sheen Challenge.

I started with a clipart image of a pram and altered it to suit, the backing papers are off the sugar birdies cd rom by polka doodles (I think !).  I,ve embossed the scalloped rectangles from the emboss to impress board by the glitter girls and used a punch for the flowers.  The ribbon sentiments I just printed off and backed with the gingham backing paper.

Thanks 4 looking
