Under My Umbrella

Good morning everyone how are you all? Well I cant believe we have had SUNSHINE all week so far, wow we are being spoilt. The sun & some tunes can always put me in a good mood & set me smiling for the day.

Anyway I'm here today with a card with a stamp that I tried soooooooo hard not to buy until I have inked all of my others...........but yep as you will see I failed last week & brought this furry fella........
In my defense though, look he's soooooooo freakin' cute!!!
I think I did well lasting until last week...........I only got 4 of the new bears though I was good ;0) The gorgeous papers are the new LOTV 'Timeless Victorian' yeah ok I got a new pad as well lol but the colours are soooooooooo gorgeous!!!
The card was made with a large Go-Kreate die. The charm is from my stash & I attached it to the lace using a Tim Holtz safety pin.

The lilac seam binding ribbon is from my stash & I attached a 'Metal Rose' some 'Lilac Pearl String', a bit of string/twine & the dangly thing is Tim Holtz 'Idea-Ology Bauble', you can now get these here.
The sentiment is LOTV 'Sentiment Tags'.
Ok I made this card to fit 2 challenges, I try to keep my eye on these challenges all the time.
The main one is LOTV Monthly challenge which is 'Bingo'. I couldn't decide which line to go for though so did the whole board ;0) I added some extra twine in the button just incase string is not counted. I also added a pin into the flowers with a gem on ;0)

Out of the new bears this & another one are my faves, I also painted the other one lol.
This cutie is of course 'James Umbrella' & I coloured him with distress markers.
I have to admit I kept singing Rhianna 'Under my umbrella' when I was colouring this up lol, hence the title of my post ;0)

All the flowers are WOC. The edge die cut is Marianne 'Anja Border LR0300' & I inked it with 'Milled Lavender' distress ink, I lurve this die!!! The corner die is Joy Crafts & that was also inked. The beautiful lace is called 'Coco (55mm)' & I added 'Shabby Pearl Rose Organza' on top at each side. I also added 2 more LOTV 'Sentiment Tags' to the bottom to say 'You're wonderful my friend'.

Well thats it from me I have painting to do, its taking so long to do the craft room but in between Natalie being poorly & of course normal life to life things as well its took time away from getting it finished. The end is in sight though lol. Natalie is coming to the end of her flu thank goodness, its took her 2 weeks to get there bless her.

Thanks for stopping by big hugs to you all.
Tatty bye & take care lovelies

Saturated Canary DT Card - My Sweet Friend

Good morning everyone how are you all? WOW I'm soooooo loving this gorgeous sunny weather, its glorious & makes such a nice change.........Mr Sunshine always makes me happy :0)

I'm here today with my Saturated Canary DT card, dont forget each DT member post inspiration every day over on the SC blog.
For my card today I have used one of the latest new releases, they are all soooooo gorgeous & drool worthy ;0)
The gorgeous papers are Maja Design 'Vintage Spring Basics' 6x6 pad. I inked the edges with Walnut & machine stitched them.

As always inside is decorated to compliment the front.

The lilac seam binding & the lace are from my stash as are the pearl hearts. 

All the flowers are from WOC, except for the centre flower, that is 'Kaisercraft Paper Bloom'. The leaves are Magnolia Doo-Hickey 'Sprawling Ferns'.

The super gorgeous image is 'Confetti Kisses' & I wanted to go for a soft look so coloured her with my distress markers. I also added Stardust Stickles to the love hearts although you cant really see in the piccies.

Under the image I have used a Joy Crafts die, the corner is also Joy Crafts die 'Fleur De Lys Corner 2'. The sentiments next to the image are Little Darlings Warm Fuzzies 'Friendship Sentiments', these are 2 stamps from that collection.

Well thats it from me my lovelies. I'm sorry I have been MIA, my blinds did come & it took us all day me & hubster to put all 12 up.........I also had all that windowlene to clean off each window which was tough, I'm sure it had been baked on lol. I ended up getting soapy water & the Window Karcher Vac out (best thing I brought last year). The blinds actually make my whole craft room brighter, I love it!! I've got 2 more units put in there tomorrow & paint them up to match the room colour.

Thank you so much for your continued support, dont forget my candy has a few days left if you would like to enter.
Tattty bye, take care mmwah

Bunny Zoes Challenges DT Card

Good morning how are you all? Hope you have all had a fabulous weekend.
Well after a lot of trouble with blinds for my craft room, my supplier let me down & luckily I found another one who was cheaper & they are getting delivered today........yay its like its been on hold for ages. I am crafting in there its just half my stuff is still boxed up lol.

Anyhoo's its a new challenge over at Bunny Zoes & I chose the theme for this one.........
..........which is basically shades of one colour. I've gone with browns as its one of my faves. The image can have skin tones added of course.
I have used a Greeting Farm stamp, I havn't used one of these for a long long time!!
The papers are MME Lost & Found 'Madison Avenue', I lurve this pad ;0)  The word 'Cherish' next to the image is from the Prima 'Lifetime' pad.
The flags I cut from MME Lost & Found 'Heirloom' & added Marianne sentiment stamp 'Hugs' & on the other flag I added sticky letters. The corner die is a Marianne Design die.

The scroll banner-y thing at the bottom I cut out of one of the sheets of the Madison Avenue pad & stamped a Marianne sentiment onto it. 

The super cute Greeting Farm stamp is called 'Sweetie Bean' & she is a sweetie ;0) She has been coloured with Copics, yes I cheated & added a touch of pink but only because there is a tiny bit in the papers & well...............I had to colour co-ordinate ;0)
Colours used are...........
E11, E21, E00, E000, R20 - Skin
E47, E44, E43, E41 - Hair
E33, E31, E30 - Wings
R83, R81, RV10 - Hearts
I also added Stardust Stickles to her wings & the hearts. I also paper pieced her dress with MME 'Heirloom' pad & added a wee bit of shading with a prisma pencil.
Other dies I have used are Magnolia Doo-Hickey 'Doily Flower' & 'Sprawling Ferns' dies. I used the smallest flower die & cut from the same pad as the card & added a  'Flower Shaped Pearl' to the centre. The pearl was originally ivory & I coloured it with my E49 Copic.

For most of the goodies on my card & for much MUCH more get yourself over to Bunny Zoes, be prepared to things falling in your basket ;0)

Well I have a craft room to work on today, so by the end of the week I will finally show you pics of it. Even at the moment half done I LOVE IT!!!
