Please Mum Can I Keep Them

Little Lori

Hi everyone, have you all been enjoying the lovely sunshine that we've 
been having? It's been glorious here and so I've been catching up on some 
of my jobs that needed doing in the garden, all the planters are now planted 
up with begonias, Geranium's and Night Scented Stock, and the hanging 
baskets are done and the borders are all done now :) 
Did you all have a fabulous Bank Holiday Weekend, I spent some time crafting, 
and finally got to colour up this gorgeous little image from Mitzi. Some time ago 
now Mitzi and I were chatting about our love of kitties, I happened to mention 
a time when I was little when I carried three kittens home to ask my Mum 
if I could keep them lol. Anyway to cut a long story short Mitzi created.......

"Lori The Cat Lady in Training"

Card Recipe
Cream 6x6 card, Nitwits Design Papers, Pink Berrisford Satin Ribbon, 
Hand Tied bow, Pink Pearls & Spellbinders Oval Die

I paper pieced her dress using the same Nitwits Design Papers as the 
background and distressed with SU Crumb Cake

I also added shadows and shading to her dress using Pro/Flexmarkers

To colour this cute little image I've used a selection of Pro/Flexmarkers 
and I've also added Glossy Accents to her lips, eyes & shoes.

I hope that you like her as much as I do :)

Little Kitty

Little Kitty

Hi everyone, I hope that you're all having a lovely start to your week. The 
weather here on the North East coast is glorious, I just love it when the sun is 
shining and the little birdies are singing their little hearts out :) Speaking of 
little birdies, we had a lovely (not so little) visitor the other night....while having 
a late dinner/supper we heard hooting, we went outside into the garden and 
low and behold sitting perched upon the telegraph pole at the bottom of our 
garden was a Tawny Owl, I tried to take some photographs but unfortunately 
the camera on my iphone isn't good enough for night time pictures :( but I did 
manage to record the little fella hooting :) 

The card I would like to share with you today is one that I made a few days ago, 
it's another pocket card and pillow box made using some of the beautiful papers 
from Craft and You Design this particular paper is designed by Zaneta Nawrat and 
is called Vintage Time 3 

Card Recipe
2 cream 6x6 cards, Craft and You Design Paper, White Lace, Pink Hand Tied Bow made with 
Pink Silk Ribbon, Spellbinders Oval Die, Tassle and Ivory Pearls & Rosebuds from WOC

 I really struggled with the little bow here on the pillow box and this was my third 
attempt, I was all fingers and thumbs because the ribbon is 50mm wide and 
the bow I needed was so tiny lol

This is the inside tag with the pretty tassel, I wanted to show you all just 
how beautiful these papers are. I will most definitely be buying more of 
them soon

And this is the reverse of the tag with a die cut panel

I hope that you like it :) 
I will be blogging again within the next day or two with some lovely candy

Aurora Wings Challenge # 15

Aurora Wings Challenge # 15 

Hi everyone, It's time for a new challenge again from Aurora Wings, 
and this time our challenge theme is 

Dream Wedding 

I thought for my Aurora Wings DT make this time I would try something a 
little bit different and opted to go for a  TraditionalChinese Style Wedding 
 card instead of a western style Wedding card. The image I used for my card 
is from Mitzi's Aurora Wings Etsy Shop and the gorgeous image is called 

Traditional Chinese Bride with Phoenix

To make this tri fold card I used the following
Black A4 card, Gold Mirri Card, Spellbinders Die, Gold Organza and Satin Striped Ribbon, Gold Peel off corners and Chinese Double Happiness Symbol 

This is Mitzi's gorgeous "Traditional Chinese Bride and Phoenix" image you can find it HERE 
in her Aurora Wings Etsy Shop 

I coloured the image using a selection of Pro/Flexmarkers in greyscale and gold colours. 
I also added Sakura Gelly Roll on her headdress too.

This is the card folded and tied with the Gold Organza & Satin Striped Ribbon and instead 
of my usual bow I've made a Dior Bow I was hoping to use a Chinese Knot but unfortunately 
it hasn't yet arrived :(

For more information on the New Aurora Wings Dream Wedding Challenge and

you will also see a selection of inspirational makes that my talented teamies 
have created too.
