No ‘Shop Bought’ Design Papers allowed either make your own or go without

Hi all, Todays card is for the Sugar bowl Challenge, No ‘Shop Bought’ Design Papers allowed either make your own or go without!
 My Lovely Husband bought me the Grand Calibur for Christmas, so I was away playing, I used Spellbinders Edgeabilities down the side Classic triple Scallop, then distressed the edge with tattered rose distress ink. I embossed the centre with a cuttlebug embossing folder. I had the flower fairy already done she is called rose, a swirl die then distressed it along with the backing on the fairy. tidied it up with a ribbon and some flowers from wild orchid crafts, 20mm cream rose and 10mm white rose which I also distressed the edges, hope you have a great new year, I am off now to a panto. the centiment is from Lili of the valley

White with one other colour & Sketch Saturday

Todays card is for the Just Magnolia challenge white with one other colour, and Sketch Saturday.

My colour combo is White with Pink. the backing paper is from the Love letters collection by Mindy Terasawa, I think they are fab.
The stamp is Patiently Waiting Tilda from Simon says Stamps
the flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts and I used 25mm two tone Hybrid tea roses, sweet heart blossoms, 15mm white open roses and last I used 2 tone pink/white Gladioli. I didn't colour her shoes I put some top coat nail polish to give them the patent leather look.
I wish you all the very best for 2012. bye for now

week 38 Easel Card

Well Happy monday to you all, I have had a busy weekend AGAIN, But at least my tree is up,  3 years ago yesterday, we lost my dear mother suddenly, and my Daughter, Son and myself agreed that we would put our decorations up in our own houses on that date every year, as she loved Christmas, ( enough of the sad things) I will post pictures soon.
todays card is for the Wild Orchid Craft Challenge, Week 38- Easel Cards.
this is my first easel card so here goes.

 This is a 6" square card the backing papers the Lilac is from Create and Craft, and the papers are Echo Park - Springtime 6 x 6 Pad, from Dies to die for, the image is a Bravura Stamp I think it has coloured up with pro markers really well.

 The border is a Martha stewart border punch which I got from ebay, and the bottom Border I put on with double sided foam pads, then sprinkled lilac glitter on to stop it being Sticky I was pleased with the way it turned out, flowers as are the 20mm white roses,  and sweetheart blosoms , from Wild Orchid Crafts.

and the greetings stamp was in in my stash, and the Lilac ribbon and lace is from my stash.
well better go to bed now that it is 4.30am
