Warm and Cozy

Good morning everyone,
Firstly I would just like to mention it's breast cancer awareness month in the US, I lost a good friend not so long ago, and my thoughts go out to all women and  men who battle with this.  Don't forget girls its important to check regularly.,
On a lighter note...Mr sunshine is shining today, but it is cold.  Autumn is well and truly here!  My mum is also feeling so much better now. On Sunday we were doing the family tree, mum had so many stories, Candice and Deborah were there too, we had a lovely Sunday breakfast and then a Barbie in the evening, it's been great, Candice had a project on family history, and  Deborah has been in her element, looking for long lost family, it's surprising what you come up with, my mums so chuffed to find out things about her mum and dad, she doesn't know it yet, but she is from Irish descent!
So on to my card...I've made a card for lotv, and used another die cut, isn't she a beauty!! I just love all of these images, and have bought a lot from different shows...talking about shows, we have another one at the dome in Doncaster on Sunday... here we go again, as a blogging buddy said to me last time beans on toast all week lol!!!

Isn't she gorgeous and that little cat is purrrfect!

I wish you could see the papers better, they are stunning, they glitter and shimmer like you wont believe!  I've glittered up the flowers with diamond stickles, and Millys little leggings and the collar around her little cat with glamour dust. The flowers are chocolate brown, and I just love that big pink Gardenia from WOC

Let It Snow!!

Good morning from a wet and drizzly day in Doncaster!!  What happened to good old Mr. Sun Shine lol!!
I would just like to say a big Hi to all my new followers, and a big thank you for all the lovely comments everyone left, they really do make my day :) (and I had so many wow!!)
I had two lovely surprises...I won some beautiful flowers from WOC for my Little Hazel card, also a £15 voucher for Paper Shelter from Bearly Mine Challenge! I still haven't come down to earth yet lol!! There are so many amazing cards out there and I am just thrilled to have been chosen!!
Haven't had much time for crafting, as I have my mum with me, she isn't very well, flu and a chest infection, poor sausage she has felt right under the weather.
On to my card for today, it's for LOTV challenge "Let it Snow" and quiet a few more looking at my list on the bottom lol!!  I have used a die cut square from lotv, they are so handy when you don't have a lot of time, I just love these gorgeous polar bears. I have coloured the die cut a little to make the colours stand out more, and have blinged it to death with glitter and glamour dust he!he! (Also my craft room, it's everywhere lol!) My papers are from Donna again, called "Christmas Dreams" and they are gorgeous. Hope my icicle border looks o.k. didn't have an icicle punch so used my grass punch and covered it with lovely white glitter that looks like snow also my leaves and inner snowflake were done with the same stuff!! Can't see it very well on photo but the whole card shimmers with glamour dust and glitter, also used some gems in the middle of the snowflakes!!

Hope you can see the effect better on this photo.

Hazel the witch

Good Morning everyone,
Have had a really funny week, not ha!ha! but mood swings, really felt under the weather, especially on Monday really had the blues....but feeling a lot better today, my grandaughter says its my hormones ha!ha! But you can't let it get on top of you so I flung myself in to making a card for Candice for Halloween...not my favourite holiday, but I think you will agree with me this image by Sylvia Zet is absolutly gorgeous, she is such a hunny:).  I haven't put any flowers on, which was really hard, but had to make it a little bit girly so added two lovely black ribbon bows on my lace.  I didn't want to hide the papers as they are really stunning, they are freebies from bearly mine.  Donna is such a generous person, and has the most beautiful papers, if you haven't been on her site, please take a look you wont be dissapointed!!  Don't you just love that little bat, he has such adoration in his eyes for little Hazel, anyone who has a pet knows that look LOL!!
I have used three types of papers from Bearly mine, matted on to black card, black guipure lace from WOC. Image is a digi download from Sylvia Zet, and I have coloured it in with prisma pencils (which I love..) I resized one of Donnas papers, and cut out the spider webs to put into the corners, think they have come out quiet well don't you? I have put a papermania adhesive shimmer dot on all the spider webs for a bit of bling. Also some glitter on Hazels lace on her dress.
I must just share this with you, I made top three at Lily of the valley last week for my little ivy card, I was walking on air last week, I was so thrilled, couldn't believe it when I saw my name on there LOL!!  Maybe thats why I was so blue on Monday, I had used up all my carma!!lol!!
