DAISY, DAISY

Hi, today I have a simple style card to share with you and enter into a couple of challenges.
In one of the Elizabeth Bell newsletters it said that Elphine House in Australia were clearing some of their discoloured clear stamps, I bought a few as shipping was free worldwide, I have this image in the old rubber but decided to get her again in the clear format.
I inked her with Momento ink then coloured her with markers, the papers are Wild Rose Bluebell set, both image and papers have been mounted onto black card stock. I added a stamped sentiment and some AB pearls.

I'M BACK WITH TILDA IN BLUE

Hi all, I am finally back with you, the move to my new place was more stressful than I had anticipated but the help and support from my son, mum and brother was awesome.  I am still trying to find my feet and my stuff, I have a large storage cupboard which is filled with all craft items I was not aware that I had collected so much, I was quite shocked, so no more spending on craft goodies for me, however much I am tempted, lol. 
Unfortunately I missed the start of the new Magnolia Forever Challenge for March so I am posting my DT card today while I have some time.
The challenge theme is
RIBBON AND LACE
I have used both of these items on my card plus die cuts, flowers and butterflies, I used my Tilda with Daisy stamp, first I stamped the whole image onto the oval then stamped her again, coloured her and cut her out so i could create the 3d effect, I stamped the sentiment and added some pearl flowers, pearl drops and a touch of glitter.




I would like to enter my card in to the following challenges:

FROM TILDA WITH LOVE

Hi all, I am having a 'chill' day today, well sort of, so I have been playing a little catch up and decided to post a card that I made not long ago.
I have gone mono with just a touch of red, I have used one of my beloved Tilda stamps this one is called Tilda with tulips, all my Tilda stamps are my favourites but there are one or two that stand out and this is one of them.
I coloured her with markers, the papers are Bo Bunny and I added 2 doilies one black and one white, I added a bow and some pearl drops finally I stamped a 'with love' sentiment.


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:


An update on my move is that the carpet was fitted yesterday and I cleaned the windows it looks so much fresher, brighter and bigger.
I have ordered my cooker and fridge which should be delivered on Friday, there are still things for me to do and hopefully I can get my main furnishings in at the weekend.

I may be off line for a little while as I will not be connected to the internet until 6th March

I am in limbo land at the moment as this is such a big step for me to take and my brain is in overdrive, but I hope that things will work out for us.

Thank you all once again for being so kind and understanding
hugs
