F is For..............

Hello bloggy friends.
Well, it is Monday again and that means it is time for another fabulous challenge at Ooh La La Creations.  Firstly, please let me say a big thank you for all the entries that we had for the last challenge.  Please stop by the Ooh La La Challenge Blog to see who our lucky winners were.  Remember, there is no Random Org here, the Design Team take it in turns to pick their favourite and two runners up - so if you won it's because we loved your creation!!

So, onto the next challenge and this time it is:
F IS FOR.........
Here is the card I made for this challenge:
My F is for Forest Light which is the name of the Folder on the Dreams of Tranquility CD
My F could also be for Ferns or Flowers I guess too!
I have used images and DP from the Dreams of Tranquility CD which you can buy here

Please remember to stop by the rest of the Design Team and see their fabulous creations (links on the DT tab at the top of this page).  They have all worked really hard to offer you some inspiration, so please remember to leave them some love if you pay a visit.

Tilda's still in the Garden!

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:
GARDENING TILDA
(Not forgetting your seed packets/gardening tools or both)
And don't forget we are sponsored by:


So here is my Midway creation for you:
Tilda is coloured with my Pencils and the background is made using a tree stamp on it's side and the cloud mask from Clarity Stamp
I think you can just about see the clouds on this pic.
The gorgeous little brass trowel is one that I had in a little candy from my very good friend Susie, thanks darling.

All the seed packets are cut from some DP from the Home to Nest paper pack from Papermania.
The DP at the back is from a free pack of papers by Louise Tiler which came with my Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine, and I finished the card with a lovely bow and pin.
So there you go peeps, my midway reminder for our Gardening Tilda challenge.
Thanks for stopping by today.

This time we are lucky to be sponsored by:

So here is my creation for this challenge:
So I started to colour my Tilda with my Pencils and messed it up so rather than throw it away I decided to paper piece her dress and hat instead.
I also did a bit of masking so that she was stood in front of her little wheelbarrow.
All the DP and seed packets are from a Papermania pack called Home to Nest which I had from the lovely Lisa at That Craft Place on FB.
The little silver trowel charm I have had in my stash for ages.
So there you go folks, my Gardening Tilda creation.
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Anything Goes with Ribbon

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:
ANYTHING GOES WITH RIBBON
So here is my project for this challenge:
You know how, when you see something that you just gotta have, even though you don't know when you are going to use them??? Well that's what I was like with these little owls.  They are made by a lovely lady called Beth on Crafty Sellers on FB and as soon as I saw them I just had to have them!
Well that was quite a while ago now so when I was looking through my ribbon draw the other day and found this gorgeous owl ribbon I had one of those light bulb moments!!
I knew I didn't want to over complicate the card because I wanted those gorgeous little owls to be the centre of attention.  So I just added two pieces of the ribbon across each corner and then used my little Clarity Stamp Leafy Corner on opposite corners and just added my two little owls to a piece of brown shimmer card and Bob's your Uncle!!
I just love how they compliment each other don't you??
Thanks for stopping by.

I do like to be beside the seaside!!

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 BY THE SEASIDE OR AT A BBQ
And don't forget we are sponsored by:
and the prize is:


So here is my Midway creation for you:
So I used Unsunny Sky Tilda for this one - quite fitting I thought considering what the good old British Weather is normally like!!
I wasn't sure about this little lady when I first saw her but now she is all coloured in she is definitely growing on me.
I have used my Copics this time and my new cloud mask from Clarity Stamp!
The background is done with my new Gelli Plate - not bad for a first attempt!!
The little shells are from That Craft Place on FB and I have coloured them with Perfect Pearls.
The flower is made with my MS moulds and air dry clay, I am really loving this stuff.  I added some blue glitter to the centre of the flower.
And to finish it off I have used some fabulous shell ribbon from Crafty Ribbons
So there you go peeps, a wee bit of encouragement to enter our Tilda by the Seaside/BBQ challenge at Totally Tilda.
