Purple Congratulations shaker card (Milk Coffee image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I  made a grown up shaker card, not sure how well they go together but I think everyone loves a shaker card don't they hehe? I have had these silver hearts forever so it's great to finally get to use them in my shaker cards. I have also had this gorgeous purple corrugated paper forever but never had anything to match it until I coloured up this young lady from Milk Coffee (sadly no longer available).

Fairy and dragon Birthday card (Faery Ink Designs image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I've just changed my blog up a bit so it's easier for you to see the challenge details below, they were red but now I've managed to change them to white.

I printed this Faery Ink Designs image in grey tone rather than black to create a no lines image. I'm still very much practicing this technique so please don't look too closely hehe. After I'd coloured the image I realised I had a couple of colour smudges in the background so that's when I decided to add the blue liquid pearls to hide them and I think it worked really well. As they say, there's no errors with crafting :)

I used some gorgeous Flourish with a Bling - the Chloe pearl flourish and Elise flower. We only need 3 more followers on our blog before we giveaway a lovely prize pack, click HERE to see the prize pack and follow our blog. We also have a DT call.

New Home Bears (Lili of the Valley stamps)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I used some oh-so-cute bears from Lili of the Valley to create my new home card today. They come in a set of 3 called Posy Trio and they are each in a circle so this involved a little bit of cutting out and careful positioning in the window so it wasn't too obvious. I have a lovely brick embossing folder which I used and cute window and banner dies to add to the scene.
