Birthday card #Challenge 226.

It's a bit late posting this card for the Oh La La challenge #226 birthday, I love as you have probably noticed making cards that are different in shape, so this time I decided to fold over the corner. I used the cd "Yesterday's memories" for the main topper and backing papers I also used a matching insert that I cropped to fit.

Spring is in the air.

Spring is in the air , this card is created from the Oh la La Creations cd Shawn Jenkins. I printed the image out 3 times so I could decoupage the flowers and printed out the butterflies from the same cd. Then I created a frame and backed it twith foam pads to give the image some depth, then applied the butterflies and an image of tulips that I fussy cut, so there is quite a lot of fussy cutting .

Something different

 This is out of my comfort zone but I like the way it turned out, a journal cover.I used some flowers
and little wooden bugs, a bumble bee and dragon fly. also found a small frame. I made the covers
from card stuck the bits on including some lace then covered them in tissue using lots of glue,
Then I left it to dry before covering it in black acrylic paint. Left that to dry then I used some
metallic lustre .

Anything goes

some dies and colouring them with Tim Holtz distress inks.

Dt member

OMG I have been accepted as a Dt member for Oh La La Creations,so excited and nervous at the same time, watch this space to see what I have to create.

Valentine tag.

 Thought I would have a go at a Valentine tag, this is how it started thinking of using a magnolia stamp on there to.
 Decided not to use the stamp, using distress ink I added some crackle look and hearts with stencils to the back ground.
 nearly there just adding my hand made flowers , lace hearts and a ticket I found in my stash.
I am quiet pleased with how it turned out.
This is the view from my patio window (in the summer time) , I live right next to our carp lake, the view outside today looks a lot different it's freezing, roll on summer so I have a good excuse to sit indoors and craft. It has been 6 years in April that we have lived here in France and it doesn't get much better although I do miss my family and friends.
