Saucer Magnolia - Powerpoppy

Good Morning Everyone, 
It's my Mother-In-Law's 80th birthday today, so we will be heading over to see her today. I found this gorgeous image at Powerpoppy for her card.  This image is from the Saucer Magnolia Digital Stamp set.


I've coloured it with copics. The background paper is from Crafters Companion and I found a piece of lovely pearl card. I've used Creative Expressions Sue Wilson finishing touches orange blossom die and Joanna Sheen rose leaves die.

Buzz in the Air - PBSC DT

Good Morning Everyone
It's time for our mid-way reminder at Penny Black Saturday ChallengeOur theme this month is ....

ANYTHING GOES 
(Option : Something New)

I've made some more 4" thank you cards using another cute Penny Black stamp - Buzz in the Air.




I've coloured them with promarkers and used a Lawn Fawn cloud die as a stencil for the sky. On both cards I've used a Die-namics trio flower die and a thank you stamp from Lili of the Valley. The papers are from my box of scraps but look like they could be Echo Park, Make & Create and Craftwork Cards.
 
Our sponsor this month is 1-2-3 stitch with a £10 voucher for one lucky winner.

Hello Everyone, 
The plan this year was to do a lot more crafting, but what happens...I go back to work and everything else stops! Oh well, here's a little cutie from Polkadoodles. It took nearly a week to make in the end!
This is Holly - Hello Pretty


I've coloured her with promarkers and copics. The background papers are from Anna Marie Designs. I've used a die-namics flower die from one of the Blueprints sets, a Joanna Sheen rose leaf die and an embossed label sentiment stamp from Lili of the Valley.
