Happy 18th :)

Just wanted to let you all know I am still here. Off to the Trafford centre today for Christmas shopping with my daughter. She turned 18 on Monday so we have been super busy and now she wants to spend some of her Birthday cash.
This is the card I made for her...
We love Paris and went on a girly weekend a few years back so this is why the Eiffel tower is on there.
Anyway I must go get ready,
Have a great Saturday,

Birthday Wryn

Hi Guys,
Here's my card for today. I have used Birthday girl Wryn from Tiddly inks and followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday. I have turned it though.
I have used Happy days papers from Echo park and coloured with Promarkers.
Sorry it's a bit wonky. I was in a rush!
Oh and the border die is Die namics Post stamp edge.
Bye for now,

1920's lady

Hi Guys,
A very quick post to show you a card for a friend. I used the Paper shelters "In the 20's" digi image which you can get here.
I have coloured her with Promarkers and use a mix of First edition papers.
I hope Sally likes it :)
Her favourite colour is red and she loves Downton abbey and actually has one of those hats. There is tons of glitter and liquid pearls to add texture with out bulk. (it had to fit in an envelope).
thanks for popping by,

Milkcoffee DT post- Fairy tales challenge

The day has arrived that I can show you my first card as a member of the Milkcoffee DT. I am on the challenge team and this challenge is Fairy tales and you can join in Here.

I got to use Fairy Tiffany which you can get for yourself Here. She was great to work with and you can see I added lots of liquid pearls to her wings and I also heat embossed them with holographic glitter.

The flowers are from Wild orchid crafts, the large star snowflake is a deconstructed Christmas deccie from The range (lol). The papers are Silent night from First edition (my fave at the min).
Thanks for looking and don't forget to go join in the challenge,

A new addition

I have tons to do today so am trying to get organised nice and early. Tomorrow is my first DT post for Milkcoffee so I will be showing you what I made in the morning. For today though I have a card using Pink Gem's Oh boy digi. I used the pre coloured version as it matched the papers I was gonna use. They are Papermania capsule collection in blue.
I have used a sewing machine to edge the card and added lots of layers and ribbon.
I added some sparkle with Stardust stickles and a few embellies.
Thanks for looking today,
