Yummy apple pie

Hello all, well today is challenge day over at Mayzy Art, and the theme is "sweet"... which lends itself to so many things, especially liquorice allsorts, yes I know this isn't on my card, but it should have been, trouble is I ate them!  So had to think of something else,  I couldn't go get anymore, cos I would have eaten them too!!

I have used Swoopy Melva, and little piggies (see if you can spot them) coloured with copics. I used spellbinders Filigree A2 and the doilie is the largest die from Stately circles, a freebie metal embellishment and the paper is from Raspberry Road.

Thanks for stopping by, please leave me a comment, I read them all and all are much appreciated xx

My Chelsea winner (not really!)

Well its challenge time again at That Craft Place, and this fortnights challenge is dies and punches... well apart from a 1" round punch and a corner punch I don't own any punches !!! Well I DO have some beautiful Spellbinders dies, so here is my DT creation using Spellbinders... Stately circles to make the flower, rose creations for the leaves and A2 Filigree for the corners and embellishments. I love the paper its "Lakehouse" from Kaisercraft, truly beautiful.

Thank you for visiting my little blog xxx

You're never too old to be a star

This was inspired by my lovely other half, he played football for years, and was very successful... he still thinks that he is a superstar, well he is to me anyway!!  I just love these new images from Mayzy, and this is my creation for her challenge this week, its such a privilege to be part of her design team, so much choice so little time!!

Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to visit all the blogs for the Design Team, they make the most fabulous stuff!!!  Lizzy xx

Live your dreams

Good morning all, and a very happy Sunday to you all!  Its that time again on That Craft Place for another challenge, this time its a card for a man, and our lovely hostess with the mostess is Susan.  I'm never too sure about cards for men, but this time it was really easy!  First my background, made using my new Gelli plate, oh my goodness and this was my first print, can you believe it... I also used scraperboard for the side embellishments, a spellbinder die was used to cut the design and then I cut into 4 pieces and rubbed off the black covering, hey presto a lovely rainbow effect, perfect for this card. I used MME papers from That Craft Place, and also the rafia and string also was from Lisa's shop, other bits and bobs from my crafty stash. 

And just to ring the changes I used my coloursoft pencils to colour in, that makes a change from Copics!!

I hope you enjoy your visit, please call again, and thank you so much for any comments you may make.
