February Fan Page Challenge - Part Three

This last image is Bunny Betty 

and the link for this image is:

For this image we were asked to NOT use Easter colours and hopefully I have managed to do her justice.

I used Black, Red and Purple for colours and again glitter on the ears, eyes and costume.

I hope you like the cards and if you want to join in the fun, please join us and Betty over at her Fanpage on Facebook and also please take a look at her fantastic blog where you will find alot more things to do and see.  Links are on the side of my page but just incase they are as follows:

For this image we were to use our favourite embellishment and as you can see I love flowers.  Again I covered the ears and this time the bodysuit in glitter.

February Fan Page Challenge Part One

For this challenge we were given the choice of either of the following 3 images by the lovely Betty or all three, I found it very hard to choose so went with all of them.

So, the first one I have to show is the lovely Eggcited Corinne.

Link to this image is:

For this image we had to use pastel colours only.  I chose green, yellow and blue, covered the ears with glitter and attached a feather and glitter star.

Thank you

A small Thank you card that I made for a lovely lady at work, who gave my little boy two lovely tops that her little one didn't fit into and didn't want anything in return.

The image is a combination of Rosey Walk and Carefree Elise digital images by Makeitcrafty, links can be found below. They were coloured in with promarkers.  Backing papers were from my personal stash, as was the ribbon and flowers.

Valentines Altered Wine Box Swap

As part of the SBS Fan Group on Facebook, we had a Valentine Wine Box Swap, for those that wanted to participate.

The idea was to get an unaltered wine box, which is just a papermache wine box with no pattern and to change it with papers, embellishments and anything else you want and then to fill it up with crafty items and chocolates if you wanted to and the person you are swapping with lets you know their likes aswell of course.

Recieved my Winebox this morning and I was blown away with the lovely things my lady Anita had included for her, despite her Winebox not showing up in time for the swap, she has sent me some gorgeous things and I love each and every one of them.  Thank you Anita x

My card, love it, especially the hairpin, such lovely colours.

My replacement winebox as her intended one did not show in time, never mind I love what I got.

My special gift which hangs pride of place on my wall.

 The embellishments x


The Ribbons and Handmade Bows (my favourite):


And finally, 

Here is the blog hop list:-

Rio's Supersweet 16

This blog hop is to celebrate the 16th Birthday of Rio, daughter to Betty Roberts of Simply Betty Stamps.  You should have arrived here from the Blog of Trish TheDish Sakulich.  Betty provided the image and we were left to our own devices as to colours and decoration.  I decided to keep the look and feel of the card clean and plain.

I used a plain pink paper for the first layer around the image and then a rose pattern paper under that, these papers are from my personal stash.  I cut a 16th Birthday button out on my Silhouette and stuck this to the image, glitter flowers are from my personal stash and the flower dangle was from 99p shop and I attached a little 'made with love' charm as little extra touch.  Hope you like the card and enjoy looking through the Hop.

Happy Birthday Rio x

Australia Day Challenge

I took part in an Australia Day challenge over on the Makeitcrafty Fanpage on Facebook.  I have just started using their Digi stamps and I love them already.

For this challenge I used the 'Aussie Outback Sheila' Digi, along with 'Flower Tree Branch' Digi and the 'Grass' Digi.  All links are below.  I also used some Dovecraft Flowers and some half pearls.  Thought Id keep it nice and simple.

The links for the digi's are:-
