Happy Birthday Princess

Hello, I'm running a wee bit late today as I'm on cooking for a party for my grand-daughter..........she is 3 today. WOW I cant believe how fast its gone, it seems like just yesterday I was holding her in my arms hours after she had been born.
So I thought I would show you the Birthday card I made for her.

Now my grand-daughter Payton always says to me 'Nanny, I really want to be a Mermaid' Nanny of course had to make her a card with a mermaid on it ;-)
I also had to use Pion's My precious Daughter for this card as I think it should be for grand-daughter too ;-)

This lace I've used is too gorgeous for words it really is........... The number 3 is a cardboard thingy from my stash (technical term lol) I covered it in Pink Shabby Fran-Tage..........Payton loves pink bless her.............and pink this is lol!!

Now although she wants to be a Mermaid, she also wants to be a Princess..........who am I to argue with a 3 year old lol. She is Princess Mermaid Payton ;-)
Every Princess needs her crown.

This is the inside of the card

The image is by the talented Sylvia Zet of Wee Stamps, this is called 'Goldie' & I coloured her with Copics & covered the bubbles with Glamour Dust. The letters I cut from an older Pion sheet to spell 'Granddaughter' & the 'Happy Birthday' I cut from the 6x6 borders sheet. All links will be below.
The shape of the card was made using Go-Kreate Circle & Scalloped circle dies.

Well thats it from me I'm off to cook more food & cakes as we are also celebrating my eldest sons birthday which was 2 days ago..........father & daughter are sharing their birthday.

Tatty bye, ooh before I go, have you seen the new Maja Design papers in Sandys peeps you need to get over there & check them out. They are Limited Edition so wont be around for long............

Well I'm definately going now. See ya lovelies, enjoy the rest of your day & the weekend.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

Live and Love Craft Challenge DT Card

Hello everyone, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I hope you all had a wonderful christmas & I wish you all the very best for 2015.
I am sorry I've been MIA but I was ill on the lead up to christmas, got a few tests to have for that. Then christmas eve I got a kidney infection, Megan my lovely daughter-In-Law got bad pain christmas night which lead doctors to believe it could be her appendix........we found out yesterday that its not but still no idea what it is. My grandchildren came down with a bug on Boxing day, so lots of vomiting bless em, which I then caught day after that. Today is the first day I feel a wee bit human & I do mean a wee bit lol.

Ok so onto my late card which is for Live & Love Crafts & the first challenge of the year is.....
.........I went with a stamp that I still hadn't inked up & even though it took me 2 days to colour it as I was colouring whilst ill..........with a bucket next to me lol. I did enjoy colouring this cute pair lol.
Ok so EVERYTHING, except die-cuts & cardstock is from Live & Love Crafts, well Sandy stocks enough yumminess to pile on our cards & much more lol.

I have added 2 different beautiful laces & added Pearl Flowers at each side. The flowers are WOC from LLC & the rolled ones are Kort & Godt, all have had gesso added to them. 

The gorgeous papers are Pion Silent Night 'Church' & Silent Night 'Winter'. The edges have been inked with walnut & machine stitched. The circle was cut out using a Go-Kreate die, on the top I also used the scalloped Go-Kreate die & added Cheese Cloth underneath.

Ok so this cute pair are called 'Skating Fun' from LOTV. I coloured them with copics & added snow dots with my pearl pen & Diamond Dust along the bottom as ice.
 The image I coloured before today but the card itself I didnt make til today :0(
The tag at the top is held inside a mini pocket, the tag I made with a Magnolia die & added Seam Binding & 21mm Heart Pearl Button to the centre. The metal corner I embossed with Shabby White Fran-Tage. I also added bells & a bark star.

Well thats it from me. Despite the eventful christmas we did have a good christmas still & still had a good laugh surrounded by our loved ones.........

Will be back tomorrow with my inspirational post for LLC.

Thank you so much for stopping by & thank you SOOOOOOOOO much for your continued support, you all totally rock mmwah!!!!!!!!
