and for those who wish to enter a non Stitchy Bear image that is fine, these entries will be entered into a draw to win a $3 voucher to spend at Stitchy Bear Stores.



I was lucky enough to work with this gorgeous image from Gingerloft which is available from  Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps 
Isn't this image lovely!  I have coloured it with Copics and Promarkers.  It is called 'Frosty's Snowglobe' and yes I have made a start to Christmas !  There are lots of images to choose from at Stitchy Bears, it really is an Aladin's Cave covering just about every occasion imaginable.  There are lots of girly images too and if you cannot spot them let me know and I will point you in the right direction.  Likewise if you need anything specific maybe together we can come up with an image that might suit.  What I don't know I can find out.   It is such fun browsing this store, and remember they are easily re-sized!  Listen at me! She who did not like digis at one time! lol  they are so easy on the pocket too.

I used the lovely On the Edge die from Tim Holtz for the snowflakes a mixture of die-cuts, poinsettias from Ebay, cheesecloth and lots of sparkle..

TILDA'S SHAKER CARD

Hi folks,
 
Here I have something I have been wanting to try for simply ages, probably some years to be
honest.  My very first shaker card.  The photo does not show the sequins very well, although one seems to have  strayed to the top on the photo.  Well actually I am quite chuffed  with it.  

I have used some of my favourite things here, the lovely Tilda stamp was a lovely belated Christmas pressie from a very good friend of mine (thanks honey - I love it!).  And as you know I love doilies, cheesecooth, flowers, Memory Box and Cheery Lyn dies!



So we have Cheery Lyn and Memory Box die-cuts,  flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and from my stash, tiny heart buttons, cheesecloth (of course! lol) ribbon, doily, gems, lace across the top and sparkle

and inside:

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:


I am hoping to put it on EBay tomorrow evening.

HAVE A BEAUTIFUL DAY

Hi folks

What a strange day it has been here, one of those days when it has been two steps forward and one back all the while.  Everything I touched went wrong, fortunately I rescued my creation each time but it was a real challenge!  Tomorrow has to be better! lol

Surprise surprise we have Tilda again!  I have coloured her with Copics and Promarkers.  There are lots of layers using Nitwit papers (new to me) and both doily and cheesecloth together with a large flower under the image.  There are a mixture of die-cuts and punches.  The flourishes are Tim Holtz dies, the leaves are Cheery Lyn, the lacy strip placed horizontally is a Martha Stewart punch.  I have ribbon and flower button at the top left.  The lovely flower at the bottom right was a free gift from Magnolicious.  This is my last one used now!  Sob!  I think the tag is a Magnolia die, I purchased this from EBay recently.  Finshed off with lots of sparkle.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Thank you for looking tonight and here's to a good weekend,
