Morning all

Just here to share with you another little sneak from Crafters Companions new range Vintage Floral
The range will be live on your TVs tonight at 9pm on Create and Craft TV then again at 11pm before going live on Wednesday with more shows starting at 10 am!

Now I know I'm biased (just a little) but for those who love their vintage shabby chic style this CD rom and all the additional accessories is soooo for you!

Here's another wee sneak of the range

Not only do all the elements work well together there great to combine with your dies and crafty bits in already in your stash!
For the box I used White Cardstock from my stash and also Core'dination Pink Card, Its mostly decorated with all the elements on the CD rom including delish papers and sentiments. I also used from my stash Die'sire Die - Camelia Small and Large, Die'sire Leaf die number 2, my Distress Ink Spun Sugar and then Gold Metallic Pen, Pearls, Gems and Mulberry Flowers

I hope will join us tonight and set your video players to record and check out the new release!

All about Birds xx

Hi all
How are we all doing in blogland today?? Its gone dull here and even a lil cooler but I'm not going complain, Mr Sunshine might not pop back!

Today I'm working on making lots and lots of stock for my stall, not long till July and I still haven't started on anything! Well I have ordered card stock but thats about it lol! I'm thinking I might make some of my new 3D creations and see how they sell this year plus plenty cards, boxes and crochet creations!

Now enough of my ramblings, I want to share a wee 18th Birthday Box I was asked to make for a "bird lover" Daughter. I was unsure how to go about making this but once I seen the Basic Grey papers I knew a lovely bright colourful box was the way to go

What do you think?? I used some wee owl digi stamps I found here and coloured with my promarkers, the other wee image on the outside is Some Odd Girl Forest Friend fairy and the lil owl girl inside is a Crafts and Me image Melinda and Moohoo, I do love my Hannah Lynne stamps!

I would like to enter the following Challenges
Paper Pretties - Flowers
I (heart) Promarkers - Anything Goes
Crafting For all Seasons - Things with Wings
Sparkle'n'Sprinkle - Anything Goes with Glitter
Die Cutting Divas - Happy Birthday

Will off to start cutting up card and looking out paper, well I know I'll probably get distracted as soon as I get the paper out lol! Anyone wanna come play too??

Winged things xx

Afternoon all

Well what a fabulous few days we've had away in the "minion" (caravan) enjoying the beautiful weather and heat while relaxing and enjoy some nice long country walks in Loch Ken

The site we stayed at was so quiet and picturesque, with stunning scenery all around! The walks were rather hilly for me but we still enjoyed them, finding some geocaches and making a few of our own! For those who don't know what I'm talking about check out here, tho shhhhhhhh don't let the muggles know heeee

Now onto the Challenge this time over at Dream Valley Challenges, with another easy theme Things with Wings! Nothing beats that theme for me, one of my all time favourites!

I made the card a few weeks ago as an order for someone who didn't want their Granddaughter to feel left out when the new Baby was born! Plus she loved fairies and purple so what else could I use but this stunning wee Some Odd Girl Rainbow Fairy coloured with promakers

I would like to enter the following Challenges
Crafty Ribbons - Use Ribbon
Crafting for all Seasons - Things with Wings
Polkadoodles - Things with Wings 
Allsorts Challenge - Purple Passion
The Ribbon Girl - Colour Challenge
Come and Get it - Bingo = Bling, free and Butterflies 

What do you think? I loved making this, the colours just popped and these DCWV papers were perfect to match! I do hope you will join the fun over at Dream Valley Challenges, remember you have just under 2 weeks to play along! So get crafting!

Well I'm off to unpack and get my washes done while we have the perfect washing day weather!
Till next time
