Willow Dressing Up


Entering for the:

Wow just thinking about next weekend when the clocks go forward….all those lovely light evenings how great is that.

Anyway back to the GD call….think I must have missed something… the brief was for 1 card stock, 2 designer papers, 1 button and 1 ribbon… most of the entries seem to have added extra.

I can see all your little minds going at the moment… where is the button… well look harder and you will find it tee hee…. and the ribbon is just one piece.

Used one of the beautiful papers from K & Co Winter Wonderland Collection and the other is a Fancy Pants… think it’s Crush. Did a lot of ripping and tearing… had to sit on my hands… just wanted to ink all those lovely torn edges.

Well what can I say about the image only…..goooooorgeous….

Willow Dressing Up.

Stamped her onto Whisper White card stock… first time I have used this….reserving judgement until I have tried it with Copics and Pro Markers…. but it works beautifully with my water colour pencils which I used to colour her in.

Off to find some challenges:

My card today is for meeeee… I have been asked by Laura from Crafty Angels to be on her Design Team… how excited am I…. so decided to make myself a card to celebrate… better than painting the town red. Nothing fussy, didn’t even colour the image in.

Lots To Do Challenge – Use a Machine

Only posted yesterday so it just fitted into last weeks challenge by a whisker and woo hoo it fits this weeks challenge…. Keep it Simple.

Stamped her with black ink and thought she looked totally divine without colouring in so I only paper pieced her dress and shoes. Cut out with a nestie label and inked the edges. Did a running stitch around the edges and added beads, also added gems to her wrists, dazzle or what..

Made a pocket with the lace by stitching (trusty machine again) around three sides so the tag can be tucked into it. The corners are made with some very pretty pattern paper from Pink Petticoat, cut out with the small Fleur De Lis nestie and cut in half. Stamped and embossed the sentiment celebrate. Made a bow and added to the flower with a button.

By the way did I tell you I am excited.



Get Well Soon


Followed Heather’s Whiff of Joy Challenge # 52 sketch but was too late to post.

Found the sketch late in the week and then had to go to Waterford hospital on the Wednesday.

Good news though the splint is off the finger and I am able to drive again (6 weeks not being able to drive… yuk) If you know Ireland you will understand, I live in the country with no trains or bus routes. Nearest town 15 mins away.

Pins will be removed from finger about the beginning of December when hopefully hand will be back to normal.

Wanted a bright card for Catherine to cheer her up after the operation and hopefully this will make her smile.

Used Fred the elephant from Whiff of Joy, coloured with Copic Markers. Papers by Basic Grey – mixture of Offbeat and Cupcake. Punched two circles, added flowers and brad from stash. Stitched main paper onto card.
