Totally Gorjuss Challenge 73 - Spring - DT

 
Hello!  Hope you are all well and enjoying this gorgeous Spring weather we are having at the moment.  I have been busy with magazine commissions and a bit of gardening and have just realised that I haven't posted my DT card for Totally Gorjuss from last Friday.  Anyway the theme was Spring and I love this little bunny from Lili of The Valley, the flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts, think I may have got a bit carried away with them but I love adding flowers to my cards.  I hope you can join us this week and I will try and visit you all too.

Totally Gorjuss Challenge 72 - Buttons - DT


Hello! It is time for another new challenge over at Totally Gorjuss and this week's theme is 'buttons'.  I have used this gorgeous Lili of the Valley image that the wonderful Aunty Sue sent me and I loved colouring her, this card is for my niece as it is her 8th birthday in a few days and it does remind me of her, not that she is always in a huff but more how she is dressed and the fact that she can be girly but then again she isn't if you see what I mean lol!  There is tons of sparkle on this card but sadly I couldn't get the camera to pick it up, I must get myself a daylight lamp and see if that helps. Well I hope you can join us again this week and I will try my best to get to visit you all.

I am entering this card into the challenge at Simon says Stamp which is 'birthdays'

Totally Gorjuss Challenge 71 - Pearls and Lace - DT

 
Today is a new challenge over at Totally Gorjuss and this week's theme is 'pearls and lace'.  I love using both of these so these card was a dream for me to make and of course I have used a Lili of the Valley image too.  My new stamps from the new releases came the other day so more Lili of the Valley cards next week from me so don't say I didn't give you warning lol!  It is also my birthday on Tuesday, I love birthday's again now, I had a couple of years where I didn't mainly because it was on my 30th birthday back in 2005 that we were told my gorgeous baby boy had Down's Syndrome, yep it took them 9 months of pregnancy and then another 10 months of him being here to notice lol! we laugh now and look back at baby photos and think how did they not know - we didn't cause he was our first and to us perfect but hey ho it made no difference any way and never would have done but I think if we had know earlier maybe my beautiful daughter Grayce wouldn't be here - I was 6 weeks pregnant with her when we found out about Ben so it was a blessing really and my god the care I got during my pregnancy with her, second to none but I think it was all down to guillt on the hospitals part.  Anyway enough of my waffle and enjoy the rest of your weekend and I look forward to visiting as many of you as I can this week.
If you are interested this card is for sale on ebay.

Crafty Catz Challenge #73 - Yellow & Green - DT

 
Hello! Today is a new challenge over at Crafty Catz and Auntie Sue has chosen the lovely colour combo of 'yellow and green' this week.  I loved making this card and using these colours as they remind me so much of Spring and we have had a couple of nice sunny days this last week and the crocus have popped up in the garden so maybe Spring is coming.  I have used a Lili of the Valley stamp again, hope I am not boring you with them yet as I have another coming up tomorrow too lol! and added lots of yummy flowers from Wild Orchid. If anyone is interested this card will be available to buy on ebay later today.

I am entering this card into the challenge at Lili of the Valley which is 'say it with flowers'

Crafty Catz Challenge #72 - Special Birthdays - DT

Hello! Hope you are all ok and having a good weekend. Today I have my DT card for Crafty Catz, the theme this week is 'special birthdays' and yet again I have used a Lili of the Valley image. I love this one as it reminds me of my little girl Grayce, she is so girly and loves dressing up and looking in the mirror so I had a smile on my face colouring this one in, she got nail varnish and lip gloss for Christmas and I gave her a little make up bag to keep it in and it is her pride and joy, bless her! Anyway I hope you can join us again this week and this is my only card as I sadly couldn't join in this week at Totally Gorjuss as we had a plumbing emergency, the toilet in the bathroom started leaking and came through into my dining room so we have been sorting that out but it could have been alot worse so I am grateful for that.
