Mrs Fox

A Tilda fox I made while on a weeks annual leave - I borrowed the book off someone as I fell in love with her. Now I'm not the best seamstress and I found some of the instructions hard to follow but I was pleased with the result .

I had a lovely crafting weekend away with like minded people. Unfortunately a good friend was unable to come and was sorely missed. I made a variety of cards one of which was another easel card.

For this card I used a Pure Innocence stamp which was paper pieced, its wings were given a sprinkle of glitter. The die cut  butterflies were suspended on wire and again glittered and glossed.

I am going to enter this into Papertake Weekly's  challenge - Bingo  the line I've used is glitter, free and diecut and Stampalot - Pink
Items used :
Melissa Frances Organza Pouf Ribbon in pale pink available from , beaded string, adhesive flat backed pearls, vintage bronze charm painted with paint dabber and gingham ribbon- all available from The Ribbon Girl

Girly card


I have seemed to lose my card making mojo  so cards are a little lacking from me at the moment however I have a week off work and am going away at the weekend with some fellow crafty girls so thought I would get into practice with this girly card.

For this easel card I used an image from one of the  Lilli of the Valleys art pad and their paper. I added glossy accents and glitter. I made a banner and tied it onto florists wire painted with acrylic paint as I did with the bronze vintage frame which I sprinkled with glitter.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
