Bride to Be

Good morning my lovelies.... It's so great you're here..... So this is the last week of my holiday, it has just whizzed by.... I haven't achieved even half of what I wanted to achieve .... Hey hum lol, nothing new there then...
So today I'm sharing a card I made using a gorgeous digi stamp by Sherri Baldy called "The Bride"....

I coloured her with Pro markers, and used ink around the edge of the oval. I used a light grey and dark grey shimmer card as matts to compliment the subtle glitter in the the papers I used.... I was actually quite pleased with her lol....

The inside....

To Have and To Hold

Hi all....I know, I know... Two blog posts in so many days lol...I'm on a roll what can I say...If you pop by regularly, (and if not, welcome). I have hinted that life is throwing me a few curve balls at the moment and thus my craft time and mojo have both taken off on their holidays and have become very absent.... So as these curve balls are here for a while, I have decided to take the pressure off myself and step down from Creative Craft Cottage..... It has been a short journey but an enjoyable one, but I need to focus on myself and my family... 

So this will be my last project for Creative Card Cottage... We are sponsored this time by


and I was given "To Have and To Hold" to use....

I kept the design simple and let the stamp be the star of the show.... It was coloured with Promarkers and matted on dark Grey shimmer card....

I have entered the following challenges:
Crafty Gals Corner - Anything Goes (ends 26th August) 
Inky Chicks - Hearts (ends 8th August)

Thanks as always for dropping by...

For You

Good morning all...I really hope all is well in your world....
So today I want to share with you this adorable little cutie from Sassy Cheryl Stamps ... She is from a three digi set called "Avery's Summer Afternoon Collection" The papers were from my stash and I matted them on to squares of black card and then onto a piece of pink card... I coloured her with Pro-Markers and die-cut a tag and stamped it with a sentiment from LOTV..... I finished off with some pearls....

And the inside, using the same papers

Gone Fishing

Hi again!!!.... So while trying to get back to some normality, I have found this card which I should have (and in that foggy brain of mine, I thought I had) posted last week for the Creative Craft Cottage latest challenge..... This challenge, "Anything Goes" is still running and is also sponsored by 

I was given this image to use, which I believe is called "Gone Fishin" but sadly she seems to be unavailable in the shop at the moment, so I have no link it for you...

I made an easel card and found some papers in my stash which seemed to fit the bill. I inked around the edges of the paper which I had distressed with a distressing tool, matted it onto kraft card,adding a few pearls and some twine.... I coloured the image with Promarkers/Flexmarkers....

I am playing along at the following challenge:

Crafty Calender Challenges - Bingo Middle Line... Die/Kraft/Blue (Monthly ends Sat 5th September)

As always thank you for popping by  and your lovely comments...
I really hope to see you back soon...

Summer Calender

Wow..... Good Morning and I am sooo sorry it's been so long..... Life has been a little harsh lately and I've badly neglected you and my blog.... So now as things are slowly coming together, lets change that and do some catching up..... My first share today, (yep! we're going from one extreme to another lol), is for the new challenge over at "Digi Galore". This months theme is "Anything But A Card" sponsored by 

and my take on the theme was a Desktop Calendar.... My mojo is struggling at the moment, so I kept the design quite simple, but summery as the stamp I used called "Sunday Afternoon" seemed to take me in that direction.... I used nearly all items up from my stash... The papers are from the "Tulip" range from Docrafts but sadly seem to be discontinued.....

Pens - Promarkers
Calender - Docrafts
Papers - Tulip (Discontinued)

I have joined in at the following challenge:

Fan-Tastic Tuesday - Make It Feminine Weekly (ends 4th August)

Thank you to all of you who have taken the time to pop by, It's so appreciated
