Midway reminder for All About Magnolia.

I am here today with a reminder for the challenge at

The theme for this challenge is


We could actually believe at last that spring has sprung here in the UK as we are on the third day of lovely weather. I understand though that it is not going to last. Typical!

Because of our theme I have used the adorable Magnolia image

The shape of my card has been made using a stencil, Square 2, from Dutch Doobadoo.

I have coloured the image with Prismacolor Pencils.

Skin - Burnt Ochre, Peach, Light Peach, Eggshell, White
Dress - Henna, Clay Rose, Pink Rose, Blush Pink, White
Flowers - Lilac, Lavender, Greyed Lavender, White.

The pretty lace is Gwendoline. 
Underneath the Lace Butterfly I added a butterfly cut out from a punch to give it some support and shape.

Thank you for stopping by today and for you lovely comments.

LOTV Baby Boy.

Happy Easter to all my Blogger friends.

I hope you are all having a lovely few days over the Easter Weekend. I don't work on a Friday and Monday and Easter Sunday the shop is closed so I am having a busy but relaxing time with family and thoroughly enjoying some well needed time off work.

This week I made a card for a colleague using the adorable Baby Boy stamp from LOTV.

I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils. My goodness, I am loving colouring with pencils. I now have the full set of Prismacolor and Polychromo's. I have spend the last month colour coding them all to make finding a colour easier. I will post the results of my hard work on Facebook tomorrow.  
The number one has been cut out from a stencil by Dutch Doobadoo.

The pretty ribbon is from my stash and the lace is from Noor Design UK, they have a huge collection of beautiful laces.

The banner has been made from the Bunting Alphabet Mould and Air Drying Clay by Katy Sue Designs.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.

Sweet Stampin Challenge - Bingo (Ribbon, Button, Cute)
Simon Says Monday Challenge - 3 of something (buttons)
The Ribbon Girl - Anything Goes

Thank you all for stopping by today.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I will see you again soon.

Family trees

Good morning.

I would like to share with you today something a little different to my usual cards.

I had a lot of fun making these and am really pleased with the finished frames.

The trees and birds on both the frames are from Button It.

The background paper is from Maja Designs Summertime Collection which you can find at Noor Design UK. 

The paper on the hearts is also from Maja Design but for the life of me, I cannot find the name of the paper.
The buttons and bow are from the range of accessories by Gorjuss Girls by Santoro. I originally bought these from The Range but they can now be found on various Amazon and Etsy sites. 

Now for my second frame.

The background paper on my second frame is also from Maja Design and is from the Vintage Romance Collection.

Thank you for stopping by today.

 I hope you all have a lovey week and  I will be back with another post soon.

Midway reminders

Good morning.

I am here with a midway reminder for two Magnolia Challenges.


The theme for the All about Magnolia is Lace and Pearls and as always the theme for Marvelous Magnolia is Anything goes.

I never usually use the same card for the two challenges but time seems to have been on very short supply this month. 

I have used the adorable Cause I Love You and she has been coloured with Prisma pencils.

I am totally in love with my Prisma's, and they now are my favourite colouring medium. 

I used sheer twinkle ribbon from The Ribbon Girl and Abigail lace from Noor Design UK.

Various flowers make up the arrangement including

I used two of the Sizzix Big Hearts die, Primitive which come in a set of three. 
The heart on the bow and the pearls are from my stash.
The Just for You is by Scrapiniec.

I would like to enter the following challenges.

Simply Magnolia - Valentine.

Thank you all for stopping by today and for your lovely comments.

See you again soon.

Hugs Sharon. xx

Midway Reminder for All About Magnolia

I hope you are all well and enjoying being back into your normal routine after Christmas and New Year. 

I am here today to remind you of the challenge at 

Our theme for this challenge is

Anything Goes.

I have used one of my all time favourite Magnolia images, Tilda with bowknot.

I have coloured her with Primacolour Pencils. This is the first time I have coloured with these pencils and I already love them. Obviously there is a lot of room for improvement but for a first attempt, I am very happy with the result. 

The shape of my card was created using a Dutch Doobadoo shape art stencil. 
The beautiful lace is Juliette.
The butterfly I made quite a while ago from fantasy film and thought it was perfect for my this card which reminds me of warmer days. 
Other embellishments include Wax Cord, Metal Leaves, Cheesecloth.

I would like to enter the following challenges.

Magnolia-licious - Anything goes
Magnolia Forever - Anything goes
Midweek Magnolia - Anything goes

Thank you all for stopping by and for your lovely comments.

Have a lovely week and I would love to see you join our challenge.

Christmas card.

Good morning.

I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and I would like to wish you all a very happy 2018.

I has been a long time since I last posted as I have felt really poorly. My cold which I had for about 6 weeks ended up in my sinuses causing me to have bad headaches and absolutely no energy. The days I wasn't working I had sofa days just to try and get my strength back up for work.
Thankfully, I am ok now.

Because of the above, this is the only Christmas card I managed to make. It was lovely to get back into my craft room.

The shape of the card has been made using the Dutch Doobadoo Shape Art Bell.
The papers have been taken from the Frozen Forest paper pad by Studio Light.

The flowers have been made from Foamiran using the Lily/Poinsettia die by Whimsy Stamp. As it is a Christmas card, it goes without saying that I added lots of glitter and bling. The button is Genevieve
 and from my crafty stash I added silver ribbon, silver berries and pearls.

I added silver embossing powder to the one of the Frames from the Scrapiniec  Ribbon Set.

I would like to enter the following challenges.

Christmas at Sweet Stampin - Anything goes Christmas.
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
The Crafty Addicts - Anything Goes / (non traditional Christmas)

Once again, I wish you a very Happy New Year and I will see you in 2018.

Hugs Sharon. x
