Sweet Treats in Pastels

Well here comes the next challenge.  I spent a spell in hospital so there was no crafting for me for a while, but then I thought there's no reason why I can't do cross stich!  so one of the cards i have cross stitch and some cup cakes that have been stamped and chalked with pearl paint and glitter on the top.

The pink card was stamped and embossed and then decoupaged.  Decorative pins were inserted through the ribbon to make it look pretty.

Finally the last one, the little fairy has a cup cake on her head which i decorated with pearl paint.  Lovely ribbon was added to match and tie in all the colours.

An other lovely challange.

thank you Lisa xx

challange 2

Lisa asked me to make some samples using the lovely Vilda stamps, and guess what?  only Lisa sells them so have a look as they are lovely to stamp with.
Here are some samples I made using this lovely stamp.

The first picture I stamped the lovely image and placed it on a base of hearts,  I decided to improvise and use cinnamon sticks wrapped up with twine and glittered wire instead of using other wooden materials.
The second card I used the lovely Anna Griffin paper and also decorated the inside to match.
The blue card was my favourite, I used a doily which I glittered and then used a flourish to embellish the card, and of course I used twine again which is one of my favourite decorative items.  All the cards were coloured with promarkers. 
I do hope you like the cards.

Design Team

I've been lucky to be asked to be in "That Craft Place" design team.  I'm so pleased as i can get my creative ideas onto paper.

Lisa stocks so many lovely things that it would be worth while having a look in her Aladdin's cave as I'm sure you will find something yummy.

the above cards are from Lisa's sketch which I used the lovely Molly Bloom stamps, they have been coloured in with a mixture of copic's and the lovey promarkers. Lisa also has a great collection of her stamps too!

I've been really naughty and not kepted up with my blog.  I'm really not a good blogger. I should make the effort.
Well finally I'm moving to the front bedroom where I should be able to craft in there.  Poor hubby he does get covered in glitter when I craft in bed, so now if I go to the front bedroom then there's no excuses as there is a bed there too.  At least I can close the door on the mess if I want to not like when I was in the back bedroom with hubby.  So I should be doing more, health permitting as there is no getting away from that.

Thank you guys for looking
