A TOUCH OF CLASS

Hi all, I hope you are all enjoying the weekend, it was a tad cooler here last night and for the first time in days I was able to turn the fan off but it still a little too warm for me, lol.  I know that sounds strange to all you sun worshipers but I really do not like it hot.
Before I tell you about my card I would like to THANK YOU all for visiting and leaving me such lovely comments on my postings, several months ago I never thought I would ever get back into the swing of crafting I had lost all thoughts of creating cards and projects, I was even tempted to sell off all my stamps including my collection of Tilda's, I did have a huge clear out but thankfully I kept the items that were dear to me.  I think the clear out did me a little good it was like sweeping away the cobwebs that seemed to be fogging my brain, I do feel like 'a born again crafter'.  It is the support and friendship that I receive from you all that has also helped me to return to my much loved craft world, so thank you again.

Now onto my card that I would like to share with you and to enter a few challenges.  I have decided to follow the challenge theme over at FITZTOWN which is to use 'browns', now I am a big lover of this colour so I had a lovely time making this one.  I have used an image that is available from Fitztown called Enchanting Elves 15a, I have coloured her with Graph It Markers, I rounded off the edges and adhered her to Kraft card, I have used a black 7 x 7 card for highlighting the papers that are from LOTV, I used my EK Success circle cutter for the central display of the image.  I have added gold organza flowers from Creative Expression, peach roses, gold gems, butterflies punched out with my Tonic punch also some little wee daisies punched out with a Hobbycraft punch, I used yellow Viva Decor for the centers of the wee daisies and the butterflies also in the image's hair, finally I added some Bronze Glass Glitter to the top of the dress.
I have taken 2 photos of the main card but at different angles so you may see a slight difference

A closer look at the image 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Many thanks for visiting me I hope you like what you see and if you would like to buy this image and more then please pay a visit to Fitztown you will be pleasantly surprised at all their gorgeousness in store.

BABY IT'S COLD OUTSIDE......I WISH

Hi all, today I have a Christmas card to share with you and to enter into some challenges.  I have used a Bestie image No: 392 and coloured her with Graph It Markers, I also added quite a bit of WOW glitter and Pinflair snow ice to her hat and fur bits.  The papers are a mixture of LOTV and Bearly Mine, the image and papers have been mounted onto black card stock, I distressed the edges of the papers with my scissors as I cannot find my distressing tool.  I added some lace and brown organza ribbon and bow, I punched out some snowflakes using gold mirri card, stamped a sentiment onto Kraft card and added s flower display, flower pearls and Cosmic Shimmer Berry Red PVA Glue, oh I also punched out a couple of holly leaves.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Many thank for visiting me I do hope you like my card and maybe found some inspiration, please come back soon you are always welcome.

Now onto my card, as you may know today is the
showcase for just a few of the gorgeous images that are available in store, I chose to use this beautiful, cute image called
I love her and she is available 

Ballerina BobbiBallerina Bobbie (colored)

I have coloured Bobbi with Graph It Markers I then cut her out and adhered her to the card with silicone glue for a raised effect.  I have used a 6 x 6 white scalloped card base, the papers are from Bearly Mine and have been mounted onto Kraft card.  I recently treated myself to the Joy Butterflies circle die and here it is, once again I used Kraft card for the actual circle and for the butterflies that come with the frame, I then used the plain circle die for the birthday card to which Bobbi has been mounted, I added Viva Decor to the butterflies and around the card then I tied a double bow using lemon organza and striped ribbon.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

MY TYPE OF SUMMERTIME WITH A BESTIE

Hi all this is my second posting for today please do checkout my Digital Delights DT card below, I am not a lover of sitting by the beach so to me this image depicts my kinda Summer.  
For my card today I have used a Sherri Baldy Bestie Image called 'Little Pixie Fancy Pants' I only bought her yesterday but could not wait to colour her in, I started this card at around 4.15 am this morning I coloured her with Graph It Markers and added a few little pearls to her hat, omg I love these hats and could have done with one this morning when I took Jess out for her run, it was so hot, it was alright for Jess as I take her along the brook and she jumps in and out of the water, lol, always makes me laugh, anyhow back to my card details, 
I have used a white 7 x 7 card base, the papers are LOTV and have been mounted onto black card as is the image, the second layer of card and paper I actually put through the die cutting machine and used my Tonic lattice die, I have added numerous pearls in different shapes and sizes also added a wired pink butterfly ribbon, large crystal gem, Joy Butterfly die cut border, lace, flower and some Cosmic Shimmer Gold PVA glue to the butterflies.
A closer look at the image
