Party Frills

Good afternoon everyone, Wow.. two posts in one week lol!! I have had a bit of time to myself this week, a welcome change from last week where I didn't know if I was coming or going lol!!  I've coloured this lovely image called Party Frills, she is a Sugar Nellie stamp by the artist Krista Smith.  I got her from the Doncaster show I went to last month ...I really enjoyed colouring her as Krista draws so beautifully it was an easy stamp to colour...loved doing her hair and ribbons lol!!
I distressed all the papers and image with Tim Holtz Distress ink and stickled all the flowers and image with Stardust Stickles, it doesn't show up too well on her little tulle dress or those ever so cute socks, but it is really glittery!

Good morning's time for another Make It Monday linky party whooo!!  Last week we had over 250 entrants showcasing their fantastic work!!  You are all just amazing!! Thank you for linking up with us, and hope you will join in again this week... don't forget you can use any paper craft work, be it an old card you want to show again or a new one!
My DT card this week is an oldie I made it when I first started my blog, and didn't really get a chance to show off these lovely stamps it is the couples first anniversary this month, so thought I would go down memory time flies lol!!

The image is Bridegroom and Wedding Day by Rose stamps..I had to mask them so they would fit next to each other. That's another story lol!!  I coloured them with Prisma pencils and Promarkers.  The papers were a freebie from Donna at Bearly Mine, the sentiment was computer generated and I used a Marianne Doily at the back of the image.  The gorgeous black lace and flowers were from Wild Orchid crafts

This week we are being sponsored by the lovely Mandy of Cupcake Cards and Craft who creates gorgeous digi paper collections and kits!  Mandy is offering the lucky random winner 3 downloadable paper collections!
