Sugarplum Thank You

Hello there, I hope you have all enjoyed your Bank Holiday Weekend ... the last one for the year! I have popped on here to show you this little notelet that I have made for a very lovely person who I want to say thank you to. I have stamped the girl with sunflower out from the CC Designs Sugarplums Take A Seat kit and coloured her with Copics. She has then been mounted to CS which has been cut out using a Nestabilities die with 2 pieces of organza ribbon wrapped around. Gem stones added to finish. The back has been decorated with more gems and a rub on greeting.

The Birthday Girl

Woohoo! At long last I have made a card ... ok I cheated a bit 'cos I already had the image coloured but it felt so nice to make a card again. I used the very cute Magnolia Tilda with Wedding Gifts and coloured her with Copics cut out and mounted to base. The base is a layer of Bazzill Basics Canvas CS added to a white card blank followed by a layer of Prima Marketing Flights of Fancy Collection Blooming Happiness then another strip of the CS. The larger of the flowers is a Prima Marketing Fairytail Roses, the smaller is from my stash and has been coloured with a Copic to match the image. Pearls and rub on greeting added to finish. {Apologies for the quality of the photo's!}

For you of those that would like to have a look, I have also updated my craft room pics to include my new stacker unit.

First of all I just want to say thank you for the lovely messages you have sent about the post below, I really do appreciate them :0)

I made this card ages ago now but realised that I hadn't posted it yet. This card is made with some gorgeous products from Dies to Die for. The super cute CC Designs Honey stamp is coloured with Copics and then cut out and added to the base with 3d foam pads. The base is made with a piece of Bazzill Aqua CS with a layer of MME So Sophie Graceful "Happy For You" Precious Stripe paper on top. Wrapped around with a piece of organza ribbon and thread. Message is from the Wild Rose Studio Cute Greetings set stamped on to card and cut out using a Nestabilities Label One die. Gem stones added to the top to finish.

The Dies to Die for website seems to be down at the moment but I will add the links asap!

MIA ...

Apologies for having been missing in action recently. I just thought I'd leave you a little explanation. As some of you know, for the past (almost) two years I have been experiencing kidney problems and have numerous tests etc which has come up with nothing. I had another scan done the other day and have some exploratory surgery due in September. All this has really been playing havoc with my mojo. My spare time seems to be going to learning to drive right now but hopefully I will get back in craft room soon as I have loads of new scrummy Dies to Die for goodies here just waiting to be played with!
