Bestie lilac wedding

Hello everyone.
I have a wedding card today.
The flowers are made from circles of scrunched tissue paper.
The springs were made with scraps of card and curled with scissors.
Of course no wedding would be complete without pearls and glitter :)

Altered honey jar

Afternoon everyone.
Weather is beautiful today.
I have been sat in the garden stamping.
It's supposed to rain again tomorrow so had the hubster mow
the lawns today. The smell is glorious.
I needed a pincushion but tend to lose or sit on the ones I have
 so decided to make one from a honey jar I just emptied into
 the seed and what not for the birds.
I used pink and white polka dot material.
Filled the top section with toy stuffing and glue gunned to the lid.
Then added ribbon. lace and some bling.
Was only going to be a few but I got a bit carried away.
This one can now hold my pins and needles so I don't keep losing them :)

Die cuts used are from Sizzix, cut with the cuttlebug and coloured with Promarkers.
Although you can't see it the paper glitters.

and bling added to the center of the flowers.

Birthday Tutu

 Good afternoon.
I hope everyone is have a good long week-end.
I have another card created for the Allsorts birthday challenge.
Yes I need myself some Tattered Lace dies lol
They are so expensive. Well on my budget anyway.
The tut has been created using teabag folding and feathers.
Turned out quite well even if I do say so myself.
The crystal flowers were originally pink but I have
altered the colours to match using a 'honeycomb' promarker.
Embossing and dies are from Marianne Designs and the stamp is
from my stash. Not sure of the maker as there is no name on the sheet.

Not a square Dragonfly

Bit of a weird title but hey ho.
Today I have a card that has been created for the Allsorts challenge 'No squares allowed'
I have no squares but have used instead rounded rectangles and scalloped circles.
The papers I used are from a 12x12 pack called Oyster Blush.
You can't really see the effect but they have a beautiful pearlescent shimmer to them.
The dies used are Spellbinders scalloped circles.
The stamp is also from Spellbinders called 'Natures collections'
They were free on an issue of cardmaking and papercraft.
I have coloured this with promarkers and also added some pearlescent glitter to the wings,
this is what has given them the shimmer.
Crochet lace, bow and button add the finishing touch.

 I am adding this to...

Mimi's Many loves - Penny Black

Good morning and hello.
It's finally stopped raining long enough for me to send the hubster out to dig over the front borders.
Planted some geraniums in the troughs under the window and the borders 
underneath are going to have lilac slate put down.
It's getting impossible for me to weed etc now and I can't keep making hubby do it all so slate chips are going down and we'll get some yummy pots and have potted plants instead to make it easier.
Any way enough of that.
My card today is another created for Penny Black and more.
I have used another stamp from the Mimi's many loves set.
Coloured using my Promarkers. 
I can't for the life of me find my colouring pencils.
This time she is in the garden.
Dies used are Timm Holtz tattered florals and 
Mariane Design LR0141 :)

Penny Black ATC

Good morning everyone *waves*
Not that there is much good about it.
Weather has turned cold, wet and horrible again.
It was so beautiful yesterday as well,
 I actually thought it would last a little longer than one day but oh well.
Onwards and upwards as they say lol.
A super huge thank you to everyone who left a comment yesterday.
I have never had so many in one day. Made me feel really special lol
This ATC has been created for the Penny Black and more monthly challenge.
Theme for this month is 'Punches and Dies'
Stamps used are from Penny Black set 'Mimi's Many Loves' and coloured with Promarkers
The die I have used is Xcuts 'Vintage notes - Doily'.
I haven't used all the die though as you can see, I have just used sections for the corners of the ATC.
In this last picture you will see one of my little helpers.
I was working on my lap today and it's a good job he is so tiny or he would never have fit in that little gap lol
Meet Dio, he is one of my two Chihuahuas and a real little Mummy's boy :)
