Creative Card Crew Challenge #36

Good morning!!!
Its been a couple of weeks since I've blogged so I hope you are all well and have been enjoying what sunshine we have had. Still needs to warm up a bit still though. Had a relaxing weekend. It soon gets round to monday again. 

It is time for another challenge over at Creative Card Crew and this fortnights challenge is.........

White on white.

Our sponsor for this challenge is

I really love the dies and stamp sets that Marianne Design create. They are so versatile and make any project look really special.

The card I have made for this challenge is quite special to me as I have used a photo of my Mum when she was very young. I sadly no longer have my Mum here or my Dad but I think of them often and will keep this card on my desk. 

I have used the Marianne Design Anja Squares Dies for this card, they layer up beautifully, I have also used their flower dies from their Creatables range. The ovals are from Spellbinders. 

Here is my card, I hope you like it!!!

I am going to make my Sister one too as I'm sure she would like one for her dresser.
My Dad always kept a photo like this of my Mum in his wallet. 
She was a very kind and loving lady and a Mum in a million.

Anyway that's all for now, why not enter our challenge this fortnight. Have fun and good luck!!!

Thanks for stopping by, Hugs Lou. xxxx

At last!!!

Hi to you all.
How is your week going???

As the title reads on this post "at last"............at last I have got a moment to upload the picture of the most recent project I made. I gave you a sneak peek last week. Well here it is.................

A shadow box card. I saw the idea on You Tube by a lady called EverBloomingCrafts. A fabulous tutorial.

 I have used Tilda holding a birdcage, coloured her with my Copics. Used some Magnolia paper too. The punch I used for the borders was Martha Stewart's deco fan. I also used Spellbinders bitty blossoms. The butterflies are a die from Stampin Up! called beautiful wings. They are just so lovely!!!

So here it is.............

Hope you like it.
It was lovely to make.

Well it's late and I am very tired. I also have the dentist tomorrow. So not looking forward to that. But at least it's nearly the weekend.
 Goodnight and thanks for stopping by. 
Hugs, Lou. xxx

A Sneak Peek!!!

Good evening to you all.
Hope you have all had a great weekend. 

At least it's getting a little warmer now. Looking forward to some BBQ's this summer. We have a wedding to go to in June, one of my old school friends is getting married. My stepson Josh is good friends with her husband to be as they work together and he has been asked to be best man. He said it would be an honour Bless him. We celebrated Josh's birthday yesterday, he was 24. 

I have been busying away in my craft room this evening working on a project. I am going to give you all a sneak peek this evening but really want to photograph it in daylight. So will do that tomorrow and upload onto my blog afterwards.

So Monday again tomorrow. I have a busy week, I am taking the classes for Jean at AJ's this week. I do enjoy teaching the ladies. hope they enjoy what I have planned for them. We always have fun and a lovely lady named Jackie always makes a gorgeous cake for us all to enjoy. Thank you Jackie!!!

Well will sign off now and head to bed. The dogs are having their grooms tomorrow so a busy start to the day. Sleep well and see you all tomorrow. 
Thanks for stopping by. Hugs...........

Faux tile card

Good evening to you all.
Did you have a good Easter with lots of treats???
We enjoyed ours, a very relaxing weekend.

I enjoyed a morning crafting with the lovely ladies at AJ's in Stamford yesterday. They had had some new goodies arrive at the shop. The new 2013 summer Molly Bloom stamps, some A4 embossing folders, new memory box dies and also the new Fiskars advantedge punch system and cartridges. 

I have a little card to share with you this evening, its for a friend who has had some sad family news recently, I do hope this cheers her up. It only measures 2.5" x 3.5" so not that big. I think it is still quite sweet though. 
Anyway I hope you like and it may inspire you to try to re-create one like it. The little tiles are 1" square. lightly stuck them together while I stamped my image, then I coloured my image before I then moved my little squares and re-positioned them using some foam tape on the back to give them some dimension onto some brown card stock, then matted onto some cream and then green. Used a little thinking of you sentiment to just finish it off. 

Anyway thats all for now, thanks for stopping by,
Hugs, Lou. xx
