Secret Garden

I've had a play around today - and came up with this card.  I'd had some Hunkydory foiled die cut Toppers that I'd purchased a few months back - this one on the card was for a New Home card - I wanted to create a kind of secret garden effect - I don't know if I've achieved that or I've just swallowed up the topper! haha - either way, I really like it, and enjoyed getting 'carried away' adding this & that!  Everything on this card came from my stash (you know the one, the stash that gets put aside for another day).  I did a bit of doodling around the edges, I coloured an odd few leaves with my Promarkers and Voila! Here is the result!

If you have time, please let me know what you think?

Back later,

Fairy Five today!

I've been in my element creating this little card for my Niece, Yvie - it's all glittery, which I love.  I find you can always get away with more glitter on cards when they're for small children.  I was like a kid myself, colouring, gluing & sticking!

The fairy digi is from a Christmas digi & I know I've had it for a while, but again, I can't remember where I got it from, so if you recognise it, and know where it came from, then please let me know! The sentiment stamp came from Crafter's Companion and the rest came from my stash!

Just a quick post today as am a tired girl after having a marathon card making session.  I'm hoping to raise some pennies from my cards as I have won a competition to host a Diamond Jubliee Street Party, and I've been trying to think of things for the children of our street to take part in - fancy dress is one thing I can think of, and maybe doing a raffle too but I need pennies to  buy the children's winning prizes - I've got 4 weeks to get this party started!!!

Seems this post wasn't as quick as I intended it to be!!

Hope all is well in your cosy little whereabouts...

Until next time,

Mandy :)

Teddy, you look tattered!

Hi All,  

Before I begin, I just want to say a massive Thank You to  Lynsey - I won Mr Nigel May'sA-May-Zing' All kinds of Everything signed  photo from the man himself, on her blog! First time I have won something, so was really chuffed.  I've brought his CD but still yet to make anything from it but I will, oh I definitely will!

OOOh, what's going on with the weather?  Last night it was howling and growling & pouring down most of the night - I must admit, I do like being snuggled up in bed, duvet up under my chin and tucked all around me, watching the rain hammer against the bedroom window - in a weird way it lulls me to sleep, so last night, for the first time in a LONG time, I got to sleep at a reasonable time! (not that I'm wishing it rained every night, but thanks rain, I felt a little refreshed this morning lol)

OK, here is little Tatty Teddy - he came about as a request from one of my Daughter's work colleagues - she wanted a card made with this little fella for her Mother's birthday. I sure hope her Mum likes the card. 

Tatty Teddy was cut out and decoupaged up, using Pinflair gel - I used a baby pink chalk to edge the lace-edged square die cut & corner flourishes and then glittered with my very fine glitter (for the life of me, I can not remember the name of, but remember where I purchased it from online - and guess what, after going to look for it I found the  site is under construction - so still wont know for a while).  The little flowers are from some peel offs from my stash, I placed them onto different pink card and then cut round them - the butterfly comes from the same peel offs and I did the same with that as I did the flowers.  The little circle tag is from Polka doodles Candy doodles collection CD.  The Mum sentiment came from a peel off. All was added to the lovely mint green card (from my stash).

How's things in your neck of the woods?  I hope it's not raining where you are - although, it does seem to be all over the country!

I'm off now to catch up on some blogs!

Until next time, take care.

Mandy :)
