I had to make some ATCs for swap, had to be something new, so a new yrs resolution was one and 2 new babies were the other 2.
Here are my ATCs
The 1st New Baby one made out of die cuts and some scrap paper
2nd ATC the background made with Creative Expression's swirl stamp and doodled the stitching on, the main image is Baby Bud's Buggy Bloom coloured with watercolour pencils and the flower and wills been 3D-ed to give a bit of dimension.
3rd ATC is the New Years resolution. I just love this WA from TLC Creations Again the papers are scraps and the swirl is Marianne's die.Oh yeah on the WA I used Crafter's Companion Glitter Spray.
I'm not a big scrapbooker but I've got soooooooooo many fab pictures of the kids that I just have to do something about it, as I'm a Baby Bud DT member and there images fit with scrap booking so well so for this page I decided to use Sweet Pea and the reason behind it that I've got a sweet pea embellishment.
It's a very simple lay out. I created it on MCS put everything together then printed of the BP then the frame and stitched the 2 together and decorated it with Sweet Pea digi and embellishment from stash. Sweet pea's dress is matches with the BP and mounted her on a tag what's coming from the CD as well.
Well not long ago I done the High Hopes blog hop. I love their stamps do have a small collection of them, anyway I had a brill news last week. I won the grand prize which is $100 worth of High Hopes stamps. Took me over a day to choose lol I was over the moon and thought it's a great birthday present even though it's not here and gonna take abt an other week or two but who cares. I never won anything like this before.
Now to top it my friend texted me yesterday she won the pair of tickets for the Strictly come dancing live show. Looks like between us we are the winners lol so on the 13th of Feb we gonna go to the show, sooo looking forward to it.
Really sorry to those of you who already seen this, but as I'm not feeling to well did not have an energy to make a new card for TIOT.
Well in the last minute I decided I go for the Pixie Dust Studio DT call. I thought I don't have much to loose. The images are very cute, easy to work with. I used their freebie Pixi Lilly (see her below)
I decided to make a heart envelop and a little notlet inside. Pixi Lilly was coloured with my water colour pencils and a bit of Shakura stardust pen on the wings and on the heart. My BP/DP come from My Craft Studio CD
This is the back and I used a TLC Creations Valentine Slider, paper flower with a rose on the top
Inside the digi again TLC Creations, the little cherub been 3D-ed
Please do go and check it out. My dear friends put their souls into this shop, they are brilliant crafters

Here is my offering for this hop
I have used the sweet Baby Bud Daisy image what you can find in the Eatsy store. I have coloured her with my water colour pencils and to finish her off but a little butterfly gem in her hair. My BP/DP is from my new My Craft Studio CD Klever Konstruction On The Shelf, I've shrunken the BP/DP because I wanted to use the butterfly as a feature on the card, so I scored but the butterfly stands out proudly on the top. I used my Marianne swirl die cuts and I stuck few together to have a nice big swirl. Daisy is part of the die cut shape what I just learned recently and I LOVE it. I didn't do mat and layering cos I really really like the BP/DP, to finish the whole card of just added some flat gems.
Here is a close up of my topper and you can see better she is not 3D-ed onto the die cut, my sentient is from TLC Creations Paulette got loads and loads of freebies as well as loads in her shop.
My swirls. Starts with 2 big attached to each other then 2 little ones, I do like the way it turned out. I haven't got those nice big fancy ones or electronic machines to be able to cut out one, so that's why I made mine
Just an other little close up of Daisy
Inside I used the negative of my die cut to do a matching background and inked up an other die cut
And from the side
Now the most important your next stop is ARIELLE and do make sure you leave a bit love on all blogs to be able to win the goodies.
Today at Delicious Doodle Challenge Blog we got Stripes&Spots. I just love this theme. There are so many images you can use from Teri's shop for this challenge but of course you don't have to have Delicious Doodle image to play along but if you do use DD image you got double chance to win ;-)
This week we got a fab sponsor who will give the winner $10 voucher to spend in her shop
Those who here regularly you know I use TLC Creations WA a lot but there are digis and paper as well as mini sets and more.
Onto my card. I thought it was such a long time ago (not lol )I made an easel card so I just had to make one. I'm using the lovely Delicious Doodle Zebras image and my BP/DP comes from Funky Fairy (closed down) and I'm using some of my zebra border stamp and background stamp. On the bottom you can see the Valentine Sliders from TLC Creations
In my stash I found a zebra button so I used it but I felt very sorry for it lol but looks good on there
As you can see I just only coloured the sky and grass just to add a splash of colour
This week over at TIOT is my turn to pick and I love altering anything I can lay my hands on lol and I was supposed to make a frame in September for someone and I just had no idea what to make, so keeping it in mind what I have to make I set this theme which is WINGS and believe it after I set this my project turned out a bit different I wanted to but over all I'm very pleased with it and sad I have to send it off.
I started to paint my pages with white acrylic pain as I have no gesso yet then I stamped the swirl onto it all over once it was dry. I was going to paper mache it but haven't got enough PVA glue as I used a whole tub the other day to alter something else and still haven't bought a new tub of PVA glue so I ended up just gluing the paper onto the frame then as an extra decoration I used other stamps to decorate it. The angle sentiment is from TLC and I dug out an old set of butterfly stamps (one of my 1st set of stamps lol ) and used two of those as well. The wing is stuck behind, well the back is still a bit messy, so got to make a quick frame for the back but that's only gonna take few min now. All of the images embossed with brown, I think it turned quiet Vintagie
When I finished the whole thing somehow a small drop of water got onto my angel WA I was so angry and I could not reprint it again as I used the last little scrap hand made BP paper, so I just had to correct it with my fine line pen.
If you like to see what the rest of DT made hop over to TIOT and see it yourself
Now this is the easy one. Anything goes over at Bugaboo. As it's mine turn to post on Delicious Doodle blog I combined. I used DD frame ( pop over to the shop and have a look the rest of the image) and a fab Bugaboo digi from Harry Potter set (You find the set in the shop ) as a fan of Harry Potter I had to have the whole set lol He is coloured with water colour pencils and Sakura glitter pen. On the frame there are some flat gems.
Oops I flip it by mistake sorry lol
Sorry my posts short lately but I really wanted to take part of the Bugaboo celebration/mini challenges you stil got a bit of time if you wanna play
At Bugaboo the Thursday mini challenge is to make a birthday card. I picked the last weeks freebie. As usual my sentiment is TLC Creations.
I've coloured him with water colour pencil and Shakura pens . I was gonna colour him with my pro-marker but then I decided this is not the time to use it lol no just chickened out, to be hones I HAVE to buy the right paper to use my pro-markers, so I can get a nice effect. I love cupcake digis and this one have one in it with cherry on the top lol
I hope you don't mind my funny shapes lol just learning new things and I like to use them too
I just got these heart hat pin in a Cross Stitch magazine as a freebie and I don't really like to give them away but I decided to use them
At Bugaboo we were given a sketch. Very easy one so you can put it together quick, but not me lol I done my base and I didn't like it so I redone the base again and now it's better.
here is the sketch
and my card
I just used a new technique for the back ground. I inked up my fiskars texture plate and put it through my Wizard, I love it definitely gonna use this technique more.I love this little mice he/she is just sooooooooo cute. Just pop over the shop and check the rest out.
I used my MS punch to make the doily ribbon and thread a red ribbon through it. The sentiment again from TLC Creations and the swirl is Marianne die. The little mice was cut out with my nestie and I just learned a new technique again how to die cut if I wanna use smaller die then the image. First attempt wasn't a success but second was lol and this is an other technique what I definitely gonna use again.
Here is an other Bugaboo creation from me. This is the Tuesday mini challenge. Make a card using the provided clown image and add some bling! What a gorgeous image. Week here is my card, gonna cut it short as I still got to post the Wednesday mini challenge and make today's and tomorrow's cards.
This is the image we were given, how gorgeous he is. I had these digi paper and I thought it'll goes well with this cute Bugaboo clown, he is from the new release odds&ends section. I used my TLC Creation WA to go with it. I water coloured this little fellow and glittered him a bit too, his buttons are little flowers. And through the key hole he's peaking out so everyone can see him better.
Well Bugaboo is 1 yr old and in a style there is a big BD bash. Pop over the blog and check it out. There are loads of mini challenges as well as main challenge and to top it up there is a blog-hop too. So hop over and have a look what's in it for you
Ah this was such a fun card to make. Took me ages to find the right paper but when I've seen it I knew this is it and had a matching dotted ribbon to go with it as well. On the shoe the dots filled up with pearly doodle to five a bit of dimension, for the ribbon I cut slits to slot my ribbon through. The sentiment just fits this image perfectly. Paulette's WAs just so versatile.
And here is the matching inside, again with Paulette's WA
