Dream Valley challenge..DT card.


                                                                                   

Afternoon Girls, hope your all enjoying a lovely Sunday somewhere and that the weather is being kind to you......I am off out to my Son and DIL today for a Sunday roast, oh I am looking forward to it, be a nice change and Natalie always puts a good meal on, plus there will no doubt be cake...yum...yum...lol.....

OK, on to our challenge at Dream Valley this time, we have a great theme, Special Lady, and we are sponsored by Saturated Canary....WOW....yep, we all got over excited, and the lovely Krista gave us all a choice of images....yipppeeee...lol...
Here is a little bit of info from Krista.
My name is Krista Smith. I am the artist behind the Etsy shop, Saturated Canary Digis. I began working in the stamping world about a year ago when I was hired to create rubber designs for the sweet Scottish company, Sugar Nellie. They launched my artwork under the name 'Simply Sassy.' I moved into the digital world just this past month (it's been a super busy month, indeed!). And-- I love it!! There is a little more freedom here, as I can create anything that pops into my head:)! I am so humbled by the artistic talent of the girls coloring in my designs-- it is truly an inspiration! Likewise, I am so thankful for the friendships I've made in this wonderful and lovely crafty community! It's been a true delight! I'd love for you to stop by my challenge/inspiration blog, Saturated Canary Challenge and join in the fun...And, while you're there, click over to my personal blog (Saturated Canary) and introduce yourself! I am a bit eclectic and touch on everything from family (I've got me a great one!) to fashion (obsessed!)...Please say 'hi!'...I'd love to be friends!:)

One VERY Lucky winner will get a $10 gift voucher to spend at SC..... 


Heres the card I made with my chosen image,called RainyDay... is she gorgeous, well I think so...
Coloured with Promarkers
DP Magnolia
Dies are Nellie Snellen
Pearls from stash
Lace from Tilly
Ribbon Dovecraft
Button was a clear one so glued dp to the back and added fine crochet cotton


 Cut sentiment into a Tag so it can slip behind the image on the card....


Kept the inside pretty simple really, but hopefully in keeping with the front.


Do hope you'll come along and join us, worth it to get your hands on some of those fab images...

I am entering this into the challenge at SimonSays...anything goes...3rd entry.

Have a lovely day, thanks for being here, hugs Janette.xxxx

Happy Birthday Tilly.....

Just a quickie from me to wish our lovely pal, Christine aka Tilly Trotter...a very Happy Birthday....she is now 21 again....how many times is that now girl...lol....I made her a heart hanging thingy for her craft room, which I can now show as she has phoned me to say she loves it.....phew...

OK so it's the usual wooden heart, covered in various DP and then I tried to put as many craft items as possible on there, I mean this woman does all sorts of stuff...mmmmm....lol....I did a tiny craft mat from funky foam and had to make the knitting needles from a small stick with beads on the end..lol...just told her I am now officially into to whittling...lol.....The things you do for friends,,,,honestly....

Anyway, I hope you think it's ok,...thanks for being here, hugs Janette.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Just passing time....


Evening Girls, well this is unexpected isn't it...ME online and uploading on a wednesday night....well truth be told, the footie is on and I can't settle in my craft room for some reason...sooooo, I thought I'd share this with you...
It's a wall hanging I made a while back for my craft room. I was sent an e-mail with this lovely verse on it, it's called 'Drinking from my Saucer'..and it.made me cry...lol...for me it was my life, so I had no choice did I...sad thing is, it seems to have bubbled abit. but I don't really mind, it's just for me and no way am I stripping it back.......lol




My gorgeous Family

It's mounted on a piece of chipboard, lots of embossing around the edges and then my lovely family pics...and no, I am not on there, PLEASE I don't want to see myself each time I look up...trust me..lol...the 'Together' sentiment was from my local Garden center, just painted and embossed......

hopefully you can read this better now...
Thats it, hope you can actually read it,but you will cry...lol.... don't say I didn't warn you.......
Well am off to have a browse round the blogs before I can settle down and see whats on the TV...I knew I should've saved American Chopper instead of watching it earlier...just can't help myself, love those guys, and the bikes they build are amazing aren't they......lol...
Take care, hugs Janette.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Thought I'd show you this card I made for my DIL Birthday on Thursday just gone...She does catering for a living and makes the most amazing cakes for weddings/birthdays etc...which is why I thought the LOTV image was perfect for her.....



I used Dovecraft Papers, Ribbon from Ribbon Girl...I won before Christmas...Flowers are all stash, die cut swirl from Tilly and pearls are also Dovecraft...Now, that corner is a cake wrapper, well, part of one...Natalie uses thes on her cup-cakes so I nabbed one for her card...lol....may just do it again to, they are gorgeous...sentiment from candy win also...the edges are done with a MS punch as is  the boxed envelope ..
and the image was coloured using Promarkers

A view of the inside,little cupcake was a wooden one I just coloured with PM and put lots of sparkle on, die is NellieSnellen...

Well thats all I can do, struggling with this new blogger thingy...wish they would leave well alone..lol...and why does it all look so small on the actual blog, suddenly my side bars are wider and the rest looks odd...or is it just me.....lol.....

I am entering this into the challenge over at Joanna Sheens blog, this time it's a Special Person...and she is..lol...

Right, I am off to do abit of creating, got a few things in the pipeline and the Grandkids may turn up any minute, best get my skates on....

Dream Valley DT card, Challenge 29...wedding/love




Good Afternoon and happy Sunday....hows things girls, well hope the weather holds out. especially for our very own Mel who is marrying today, Good Luck to both of you, have a wonderful day......hence our theme, at Dream Valley this time...WEDDING/LOVE...awww nice eh....






I actually made a card without an image...lol...thought it would be nice to have the sentiment cut from a heart on the front, I love this verse, we used it for Carla's wedding day favour boxes, it's so apt; I think...
Anyway, alot of card scoring, heat embossing in silver...... lace, which Tilly sent me.......
gauze, pearls, ribbons all from stash...made a small envelope, embossed, of course, and added a little' I Do' tag to it on the inside..all dies are Nellies...


We are sponsored this week by One Stop Card Shop, and the Prize for one lucky winner is £10.00 gift voucher...
A close up of the Sentiment, forgot to say that I edged the Heart with lace also..

Hope that covers it, what you all up to then, the weather looks good, fingers crossed, washing is out there...lol...
My ceiling is finished and it looks so good, will add a couple of pics later,as for the rest of the room, well it's all emulsioned now, and waiting for me to sort it....that will be some task, but it needs doing so I can get back in there...lol..

Oh about BLOGGER....well, I tried this new look out there on about....no no...it's hard and this morning would not publish my pics at all....soooooo...found a way of going back to the old one and done that for now, how we will cope when come to set a challenge is beyond me....

Have a good day and enjoy yourselves, off to do some sorting....thanks for being here and take care..hugs Janette.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
