Family trees

Good morning.

I would like to share with you today something a little different to my usual cards.

I had a lot of fun making these and am really pleased with the finished frames.

The trees and birds on both the frames are from Button It.

The background paper is from Maja Designs Summertime Collection which you can find at Noor Design UK. 

The paper on the hearts is also from Maja Design but for the life of me, I cannot find the name of the paper.
The buttons and bow are from the range of accessories by Gorjuss Girls by Santoro. I originally bought these from The Range but they can now be found on various Amazon and Etsy sites. 

Now for my second frame.

The background paper on my second frame is also from Maja Design and is from the Vintage Romance Collection.

Thank you for stopping by today.

 I hope you all have a lovey week and  I will be back with another post soon.

Midway reminders

Good morning.

I am here with a midway reminder for two Magnolia Challenges.


The theme for the All about Magnolia is Lace and Pearls and as always the theme for Marvelous Magnolia is Anything goes.

I never usually use the same card for the two challenges but time seems to have been on very short supply this month. 

I have used the adorable Cause I Love You and she has been coloured with Prisma pencils.

I am totally in love with my Prisma's, and they now are my favourite colouring medium. 

I used sheer twinkle ribbon from The Ribbon Girl and Abigail lace from Noor Design UK.

Various flowers make up the arrangement including

I used two of the Sizzix Big Hearts die, Primitive which come in a set of three. 
The heart on the bow and the pearls are from my stash.
The Just for You is by Scrapiniec.

I would like to enter the following challenges.

Simply Magnolia - Valentine.

Thank you all for stopping by today and for your lovely comments.

See you again soon.

Midway Reminder for All About Magnolia

I hope you are all well and enjoying being back into your normal routine after Christmas and New Year. 

I am here today to remind you of the challenge at 

Our theme for this challenge is

Anything Goes.

I have used one of my all time favourite Magnolia images, Tilda with bowknot.

I have coloured her with Primacolour Pencils. This is the first time I have coloured with these pencils and I already love them. Obviously there is a lot of room for improvement but for a first attempt, I am very happy with the result. 

The shape of my card was created using a Dutch Doobadoo shape art stencil. 
The beautiful lace is Juliette.
The butterfly I made quite a while ago from fantasy film and thought it was perfect for my this card which reminds me of warmer days. 
Other embellishments include Wax Cord, Metal Leaves, Cheesecloth.

I would like to enter the following challenges.

Magnolia-licious - Anything goes
Magnolia Forever - Anything goes
Midweek Magnolia - Anything goes

Thank you all for stopping by and for your lovely comments.

Have a lovely week and I would love to see you join our challenge.

Christmas card.

Good morning.

I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas and I would like to wish you all a very happy 2018.

I has been a long time since I last posted as I have felt really poorly. My cold which I had for about 6 weeks ended up in my sinuses causing me to have bad headaches and absolutely no energy. The days I wasn't working I had sofa days just to try and get my strength back up for work.
Thankfully, I am ok now.

Because of the above, this is the only Christmas card I managed to make. It was lovely to get back into my craft room.

The shape of the card has been made using the Dutch Doobadoo Shape Art Bell.
The papers have been taken from the Frozen Forest paper pad by Studio Light.

The flowers have been made from Foamiran using the Lily/Poinsettia die by Whimsy Stamp. As it is a Christmas card, it goes without saying that I added lots of glitter and bling. The button is Genevieve
 and from my crafty stash I added silver ribbon, silver berries and pearls.

I added silver embossing powder to the one of the Frames from the Scrapiniec  Ribbon Set.

I would like to enter the following challenges.

Christmas at Sweet Stampin - Anything goes Christmas.
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
The Crafty Addicts - Anything Goes / (non traditional Christmas)

Once again, I wish you a very Happy New Year and I will see you in 2018.

Midway reminder for the challenge at All About Magnolia

Hi Bloggers.
I am here today to share with you my card for the challenge at 

the theme for this challenge is

All About the Season

For my card today I used Magnolia Stamp London Tilda.
I masked Tilda before adding the Water Rain Drop Stamp
by Inkylicious. 

The papers, Indian Summer, I purchased from the NEC this year and they are by Clarity Stamp. I have covered a lot of the detail on the papers but I can assure you, they are so pretty. I made the large flower on the left with Foamiran and the flower to the right using the papers from Clarity. Both were made with the Whimsy Lily/Poinsettia die
 I will come back very soon and add the rest of the products used. My computer is constantly disconnecting from the internet and I am going to shut it down before I throw it through a window!!!
Thank you for stopping by and for your comments. 

Enjoy the rest of your week

Hugs Sharon. x

Midway Reminder for Marvelous Magnolia.

It seems such a long time since I last posted. Well actually it is as a month has gone by. 
The only cards I have made have been for my DT commitments but I am raring to get back to card making on a more regular basis. I have had a lot going on in my life and I just needed some breathing space.

Anyway, I have returned for my midweek inspiration for 

As always, our theme is

Anything goes.

The chosen winner for this challenge will have the opportunity in joining us in an up and coming challenge.

I have not made a card this time but a bottle tag. I really love making these and they make beautiful keepsakes.

The bottle tag shape art is by Dutch Doobadoo.
 I have coloured with Distress Markers and Re-inkers, Magnolias Cause I love you from the Little Emoji Collection 2017 

 The pretty die underneath the image and around the bottle opening is Anja's Butterfly from Marianne Design. The large pink flower on the below has been made from Foamiran and coloured with chalks. The die I used to make the flower is the Lily/Poinsettia die from Whimsy Stamp. 
The Just for you is by Scrapiniec. There are two pieces in this set.

Thank You for stopping by today and for your lovely comments.
Enjoy the rest of your week.

Midway reminder for All About Magnolia

Good morning.

I am here with my reminder for the challenge at 

All About Magnolia.

The theme for this challenge is


We are being sponsored by Magnolia Stamps of Sweden


I have gone for an Autumnal card as I am not a great lover of Halloween and tend not to buy Halloween appropriate goodies.

 I have coloured  Sitting Cozy Tilda and Happy Swing with Distress Markers and Re-inkers.
 I love this cute swing and keep looking through my stamps to find images that will sit on it nicely.

The papers are from a Christmas paper pad by Whimsy Stamp but the colours are beautifully autumnal.
The leaf and mushroom die is by Joy Crafts

Yet again, I have made a Foamiran Flower with the Lily/Poinsettia die from Whimsy Stamp. Can't get enough of this die.
The Autumn die is from a set of Seasons Dies.

Thank you all for stopping by today.

See you again soon.
Hugs Sharon. xx
