A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Devine Tilda

Hi lovely peeps! Hope you're all well and happy on this beautiful, November day!  Okay, so it started off a bit rubbish, but brightened up eventually :)

Today I thought I'd share my first EVER Magnolia stamp .... eeeeep!!
It's taken me a while to getting around to purchasing one, but my mind was truly made up after I kept seeing the most stunning creations around fb and blogland with these cuties as centre stage! 

It's also my first try at the white embossing technique, which was a whole lot of fun!

So, my little one today is called Devine Tilda and you can find her HERE.

I bought a little wooden hanging heart from the range and thought she'd sit perfectly on here!
I used DP's from Maja Design and edged the heart with twine edging.  Behind little Tilda is half of a die-cut heart and more twine edging, which I fiddled about with to mat underneath her. I embossed the beautiful metal butterfly with frantage.  
Tilda is coloured up with my fave medium at the moment .... DI's.  Love them!

A little close up of this adorable girl ...

I ended up having to decoupage her skirt, as my first attempt on my original image wasn't to my liking ..... where there's a will, there's a way right? LOL

Here's a little side view of my little creation:

I hope you like my little version and I hope I've done her justice!

Tilly Fairy

Hi everyone! Hope you're all well :)

Today I'm sharing a 50th Birthday commissioned card, which I was asked to make using the very beautiful Tilly Fairy from Saturated Canary.  Tilly was originally only available in rubber, however, Krista kindly made her into digital for all us SC lovers and I'm so, so pleased she did :)  

You can find this beauty HERE.

I coloured Tilly up with my DI's and matted and layered her onto the very gorgeous 'Rose Cottage Charms' digital papers from M R Designs.
The twine edging at the top was from The Range, (love that shop LOL), as was the little 'picture frame', which i embossed with Frantage. The flowers are a mixture, which can be found at Wild Orchid Crafts and The Ribbon Girl.  The beautiful lace was a fab find from Ebay and the delicate little butterfly on the left is from my stash :)

Here's a little close up:

I hope you like my card today and thanks so much for stopping by!

Hiya Everyone! Hope you're all keeping well.

You can tell winter's coming ..... stepped outside this morning and it's flipping freezing!! Mind you, anything under 20 degrees is freezing to me LOL.  I'm so NOT a fan of this cold weather malarkey!

Today I'm sharing this adorable little Lillibet stamp called 'Embrace' and you can find it HERE at the Scribble & Scrap Shop.  I'm pretty sure this little pair will warm any heart!


Aren't they just the cutest! I coloured this little pair up with DI's.

I think I went a little Die Crazy on this card! I used a Tim Holtz 'Bracket' Die to shape the card, a Lace Edge die for the top of the card and various heart dies.  The design papers are from LOTV.  The lace, ribbon and sentiment were from my stash. The pearl string, pearl gems and hearts are all from The Hobby House.  

I would like to enter this cute duo into the following:
