Waving the flag

How on trend our little girl is!  Using a Lilyboo digi stamp from Cuddly Buddly this is my first submission as part of their design team, how cool is that, AND it's my favourite digi stamp site, I'm in heaven!! 

We are currently in the middle of Thetford Forest, wifi reception very dodgy, but the grassy field we are pitched up in is a perfect back drop for this card. Love the daisy's!

 I used the 2nd largest flower as leaves.

My you tube video of 50 cards.

If you need a good nights sleep take a look at my latest 50 cards, I don't speak because my daughters said I shouldn't,  what a cheek!!  Anyway if you don't fall asleep half way through I hope you enjoy taking a little peek. They are all A6, and fairly simple, as soldiers don't like ribbon and sparkle, I have however sneeked a few in!  Thanks for looking. xx

P.S  I am on the Cuddly Buddly design team, OH YES !

Forever hopeful

Another beautiful image from Wee Stamps, called Hopeful.  I tried to keep this card neutral using only beige and pink,  I hope I have succeded. I would like to tribute this card design to fleur  who does the most wonderful work and inspires me to create, especially this sketch.

I have used my Cricut for the flowers, butterflies and borders

I used my Promarkers to colour her in.

A hidden tag with a sentiment, flowers button and borders.

Can you find where the other tag is?

A beautiful die cut butterfly, NO glitter, yes very difficult not to glitter !!

Thank you for stopping by, I am going to enter this into these challenges:

I love this little digi stamp from Wee Stamps, they are quite beautiful. I thought I might go orange! How did the blue get into this is a mystery... hey ho.. I have triple embossed the balloon for extra dimension. Promarkers, distressing, cricut and a bit of doodling, job done.

I think you can see the embossing on the balloon, I also tried my very best to get blonde hair,  How tricky is that !!!

Pretty little cowgirl.

Tree house

I couldn't wait to use a very old Almanack I bought recently,  I asked the owners permission to cut it up!  I felt so guilty, but as he had millions of old books he didn't seem to mind. I cut the flowers using the Tim Holz dies.  I love the steam punk tree house image and have used it loads of times for new home cards!  People seem to love it.  Anyway using a theme of black and green I have created a masculine card with a twist.

I am entering this into these challenges:

Little poppet

I just needed to create a pretty card, having done 100 cards for soldiers which must be kept plain and simple I needed a creative day! 

My lovely Mo Manning digi stamp, I love this little chap.. lacy toppers, flourishes and 3 layered flower cut with my Cricut, Ornamental Iron 2. Doily buttons and papers from my stash. Image coloured in with Prisma pencils and pro markers. All slightly distressed.

I'm going to enter this into these challenges:
