My lovely teamie Elaine gifted this gorgeous shadow box to me!!
Thank you Elaine, that was very generous of you. MWAH!!
So this is what I did with it.
The images of Tilda and Edwin are coloured with my Copics.
The rest of the shadow box, i.e. the rope, the birds, the anchor, and the ship's wheel are all coloured with my pencils.  The shells and the little boat are coloured with my Pan Pastels. The sand is also done with Pan Pastels.

MW Reminder - Tilda's Wedding!!!

Hello folks,
Just popped in to remind you that you have about a week left to enter the current challenge over at Totally Tilda.
This time the challenge is:
TILDA'S WEDDING
And don't forget we are sponsored by:
The prize will be:
Two Magnolia Stamps
***********
So here is my Midway creation for you:
I decided to go for a monochrome look this time and again used my pencils to colour the image. I have stamped the image on to one of those wonderful die cuts that our Susie Sugar used to sell.
Here's a little close up for you.  The gorgeous paper in the background is from a pad called Vintage Romance (appropriately!!) from the Black Market Paper Society.
The heart is one I've had for a while I just used Vintage Sepia Archival ink all over it.
Now you will also notice that I have been playing with my latest toy, my Martha Stewart clay and moulds.  Me thinks I might be addicted!! LOL
I coloured the white clay with a tiny bit of brown and then sprayed them with Crafters Companion Spray and Sparkle in gold.
The sentiment is from the Stampin Up "Marry Me" set of stamps which I won at a little party a while ago!!
You will also noticed a few more of those little clay leaves down the right hand side too.
So there you have it folks, my midway reminder for you.
Don't forget to stop by the rest of my DT buddies blogs and see what fabulous inspiration they have for you too. (Links in the sidebar)

Pixie-Mush in Peach

Hi all,
Just popped in to show you a card I made today.
I noticed that there was a DT call over at Dreamtime Designs new challenge blog and I thought I'd give it a go.
Lisa is starting a new monthly challenge blog and is currently looking for DT members, all you have to do is make something and use some ribbon - easy right??
So here you go then, this is what I made.....
The stamp is called Pixie-Mush and is by Karen Middleton at Sweet Pea Stamps.
I love Karen's stamps and have quite a few but sadly I don't use them nearly enough so maybe if I get on to this DT it will encourage me to use my neglected stamp stash!!
Here's a wee close up for you.
I have used my Faber Castell pencils to colour the image and added some Glamour Dust to the wings and the little bobbles on the socks.  
So, I hope you like my card and please keep your fingers crossed for me in the DT Call.
Oh yes, nearly forgot, Lisa also has a blog candy running to - click on the link in my sidebar to go have a look.
Thanks for stopping by.

Use 3 of something at Crafty Ribbons

Happy Thursday morning to you lovely peeps!
Time once again for a new challenge at Crafty Ribbons.
Thanks for all your fabulous creations on our last challenge, you really are a crafty lot aren't you?
Please stop by the Crafty Ribbons Challenge blog and see if you were one of our handpicked top 3 or our Random Winner!
So, onto our new challenge.
This time the challenge is:
USE 3 OF SOMETHING
So here is my project for this challenge:
This gorgeous image is from a CD called Simpler Times which features some of Elisabeth Bell's fabulous images.  I was lucky enough to win this CD over at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge a while back so thought it was about time I used it.
The CD comes with colour images like this one and black and white ones for you to colour yourself and sepia images too.
The gorgeous ribbon is of course from Crafty Ribbons.
The Friends Forever is from a stamp set I bought over on Crafty Sellers on FB.
The 3 little leaves have been in my stash for simply ages.
I added some Goosebumps Clear Texture spray to them to make them a bit more robust and stand out a little bit.
So there you go, my card using THREE leaves.
I can't wait to see what you come up with and am looking forward to choosing a Top 3!!

Thanks for stopping by.
