Marvelous Magnolia - Tilda with Hawaiian Flower

Happy Thursday Lunch Time

Long time no blogging, as you might know life have turned mega busy and I have not had the time to make cards or blog too much recently or even visit your lovely blogs and this weekend will be no exception as I have my young niece staying over to help me make 48 cup cakes for a Baby Shower I am co-hosting on Sunday - I am really excited about it and I have made so much stuff, a nappy cake, nappy motorbike, candle favours, sweetie bags and a baby shower card - there will be about 40 of us :).  I will get piccies and upload next week. 

I have been neglecting my design teams and was going to retire but was asked to stay on both of them and just blog when I can, aren't they kind, so this card is for Marvelous Magnolia  - this card is for a very good friend of mine, an oldie but goldie stamp - Tilda with Hawaiian Flower

I used some lovely Pion papers but they look a bit washed out in the photos.  I added some lovely metal corners, one of my pins, WOC flowers and LOTV sentiments.  The heart is a new die from Memory Box. 

A view of the easel card - the butterflies are a new tiny die from Memory Box.  Again the papers are Pion. 

A view of the inside - sorry it looks washed out so vibrant in real life. 

Please drop over to Marvelous Magnolia and see the totally amazing creations from my teamies.

Back on Sunday with a card which I made last year but never got round to blogging.

Electic Ellapu - Card for Grace

Hello Everyone

This was going to be my last card Electic Ellapu but the lovely Elaine said she would keep my place open and just post what challenges I can - so I might not make every challenge but I do have a couple more in the pipeline :).

Our challenge this week is Special Birthday and I was asked to make a card for a first birthday - my window cleaner saw my cards through the window and asked if I could make a card for his niece.

I made a birthday cake card - the lovely image is from Saturated Canary.

I bought a glittery No. 1 candle and designed the box to hold it and the cake around it.

Side view of the card

View of the inside - I included a sentiment card for him to sign and then stick to top of the inside.

This is the box I made to keep it in.

Hope you like my card.

Please drop over to Electic Ellapu and see the beautiful creations from my other team mates.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges. - Make it Girlie - Anything Goes - Girlie - Birthday - Flower

Fashionista Challenge - Red

Hello everyone

Today sees a new challenge over at Fashionista and this is also my last card for them as I am taking a break from design team work due to lack of time because of work and family commitments.

This month we are sponsored by the lovely Vanabea and I chose a super image called Lily.

I could see Lily dancing through a forest with fairies so that is what I did :).  I used some Fairy Digital paper from Crafts and Me - the colours of the papers were not right for the challenge so I changed one of them to red in Photoshop and then layered 'Lily' over the top and then coloured her in with Copics.

Please drop over to Fashionista and see the other great creations and also meet our new DT members.

Hope you enjoy my card.

Electic Ellapu - Snow Much Fun

Happy Sunday

Today is a new challenge for Electic Ellapu and this is my penultimate card for the team as I have resigned from all my design teams due to lack of time - Elaine has been so kind to me and also said if my situation changes I can rejoin the team... so watch this spot :). 

My card is one I made for my nephew for Christmas.

I made a lovely Edwin having fun in the snow card and when you open it up there are chocolates inside.

A side view to see the fold and chocolates inside.

Hope you like my card - I will be back in two weeks with my last card... sob, sob.

Please drop over to Electic Ellapu and see what the other team members have created - this really is one of the most friendly challenge blogs I have ever encountered and I will miss them, but hope to rejoin in the near future if things settle down for me.

Marvelous Magnolia - My Last Card

Good Afternoon,

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and New Year.  I had a super time - extremely busy with family and friends - so busy that I have not been into my craft room since the beginning of December.  This is one of the last cards I  made before Christmas and also I am sad to say the last card I will be making for Marvelous Magnolia - at least for a while as I no longer have the time to make more than the odd card for family or friends and I have resigned from all the design teams I am on :(.  Hopefully things will settle down for my by summer and I will be able to get back to making cards again. 

So my card is a special one made for one of our DT members who got married at New Year, we all made her a card and sent it as a surprise. 

I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page and Cheery Lyn heart heart die.  I also used one of my pins and some WOC flowers. 

So I hope you enjoy this card, I do have a few others I made before Christmas so you will see the odd card from me now and again. 

Please drop over to the Marvelous Magnolia blog and see the other beautiful wedding cards the DT made. 

I hope to still have the time to visit your blogs now and again and also upload the odd card I manage to make.
