Melinda Blowing Kisses

Good Morning everyone,

First I would just like to say a "BIG" welcome and thank you to all my lovely new followers, I do appreciate your time and comments, and love to visit your lovely blogs too!
Where has this week gone!! David and I are off to Germany on Saturday for a week to stay with Steve, Nicole and our gorgeous grandson Liam, who is only three!! The tickets have been booked since May time, but when I came to book parking yesterday, they had booked Frankfurt - Manchester instead of Manchester - Frankfurt!!!!... Lucky for us, Steve and Nicole managed to get us flights a day later:) so we are still going!! Whooo ! We had no refund though, and they wouldn't let Steve and family come here or credit for another time. Very frustrating!!
Anyway not had much time for making cards, have made one for Debs, as it's her birthday the day we get back, and as you know bought ones are out of the question LOL!!! I don't know how I'm going to get it on my blog yet without her seeing it too soon, as I want to enter it for the WOC challenge.  I might try and do it from Germany!
Anyway I thought I would share this card with you, I made a few months back for Candice.  I have used Whiff of Joy stamp Melinda Blowing kisses and I have made my own flowers, I did colour her in promarkers, which I'm not very good with. I didn't write any names of paper used either, as I picked it up from my local craft shop. I put all little sparkly gems on the die at the back, and glittered her wings and flowers on her trousers,  Stickled all the flowers and swirls, but it doesn't show up very well on my photo sorry!!

I would like to enter this for the following challenges

Will try and get a card done for LOTV, but I don't hold out much hope, too much to do and not enough time ha!ha! Thanks for dropping bye, I still get excited when someone visits:)
Big Hugs Mwah!!

For Mum

Good Morning girls,
What a lovely day here in Doncaster, the sun is shining, a little bit windy but nice! My weeks are flying and I don't have enough time to play:)  Thought I would share this card that I made for my mum with you.  I have used a LOTV stamp For mum, coloured with prisma pencils and have used liquid pearls on the balloons, stickled the roses and also round the edges of the card,  Used a spellbinder die, and lovely cuttlebug corners.  Metal heart pins and roses are from WOC.  Papers are Quite contrary by My Mind's Eye.

Hope you all have a great day, and thank you for stopping bye Mwah!!  Love reading your comments they make my day!! Mwah!!

Miss Piggy

Good evening everyone,
Just a quick post wanted to put this card on the 2 sisters challenge for my granddaughter Candice.  She makes some beautiful cards and I'm really proud of her.  So here is a card she made for my mum (her gran gran) for her birthday.

I can't remember exactly what she used as most of it was out of my scrap box.  The sentiment is from LOTV and the die is a Dienamics die.  I think her piggy is a papermania stamp. Brads and flowers are from my stash, and she has stickled the brads.  She has used glossy accents on her nose. 
My mum loved it that much she has framed it!!.
Hope you all have a good evening, and hope you pop bye and leave a little comment for Candice, she would be really thrilled.
Lots of hugs,

Lazy Afternoon

Good Morning everyone,
Can't believe its a week already since I last posted.  I have been busy at work all week, everyone is taking there holidays now, so lots of extra hours to fill in at work.  Candice is is enjoying the school break, and has been a little gem, has been so helpful!! It was my hubbys 65th birthday on Monday so just managed to squeeze a card in this week, as bought ones just will not do now LOL!!
I have used a LOTV stamp called Lazy afternoon, which I would have liked him to have had, as he never stops, he's always working!! I have used Domi's sketch, but turned it around alittle, hope this still qualifies for the challenge! Hope you can see my clouds this time, I have used my chalks again for the sky and grass, and used copper stickles to give it a bit of bling.  The gold ribbon had  a life of its own, it was off a chocolate box, which Debs my daughter gave me (the ribbon, not the chocolates lol)

Colouring: Prisma Pencils, copics for the skin
