Aloha Shimmerz!

I am in LURVE with these Shimmerz! I have used Pixie Dust on my little Hula Girl today and it just WOW's it! You can kind of see it in this photo.
I am trying to get through all my cardstock scraps...trying to be 'green' and not wasteful. It is quite inspiring actually. I highly recommend it ;)
Here's what I used:
Pixie Dust Shimmerz
Lizzie Anne Garden Isle Set
Prima Flowers (coming VERY soon to my store!)
Giga Scallop Oval punch
Cardstock is Stampin Up and the patterned cardstock is DCWV pockets full of posies matstack (I think!) again it was one of my scraps :D
This is going to be a GREAT week I can feel it! I hope you all have a FANTASTIC week too!

It's Tea Time!

YAY! I finally got around to making a Tea Time card...these images have been coloured in for a while just waiting to me made into a beautiful card! Tricia inspired me to get it done by her lovely words on her blog.
Being British EVERYTHING revolves around Tea...Tricia mentioned that I even take my tea on mini Vacations...well...when I went to China for 3 months I took enough of my favourite tea to last our entire visit hahaha...that's a LOT of tea when I drink between 3 and 4 cups a day!
I actually like it now that Tricia has moved further away (bare with me!) as when we see each other now it's not such a mad dash. When she drives to my house it takes her around 45 minutes so naturally she is not going to drive straight back she stays for a cuppa, my card is dedicated to Tricia 'Fancy a cuppa darling?'
In England it's a daily occurrence, friends are always popping around for a cuppa and a chat...we need to do more of that here is America, people are just too busy, we need to make time to smell the roses and enjoy tea with friends :)

Here's what I used to make this card (most of which is in my store):
Lizzie Anne Designs Tea Time stamp set
Stickles Diamond
Marvy Mega scallop oval punch
Spellbinders Ribbon Tags trio (can you tell I like these??)
Ribbon is from Making memories
The stripy cardstock is by Lizzie Anne Designs - it's FAB!

I have FREE SHIPPING within USA on all my Spellinders now :)

I am SO happy with this card! I needed a beautiful card for my beautiful Niece and as her favourite colour is purple I think she will like this card!
I absolutely adore this polkadot ribbon! YUMMY! The Ballerina is of course Lizzie Anne's along with the sentiment which was taken from their Sketched Sentiments set.
I used Spellbinders Ribbon Tags trio and also the cuttle bug dots. I also used my marvy giga and extra giga scalloped rectangle punches...I can't seem to do a project without using a punch!
I coloured the ballerina in with my Copic Spica's and C-1 and E00 Ciao's.
As I am writing this I have 3 guys digging up my garden ready to lay paving for my patio!! I am SO excited! I will post before and after photos when they have finished :)
I am now off to read the end of my book...Deception Point by Dan Brown...oooh it's gripping!

Big and Beautiful Butterfly.

POP! Wow! This turned out better than I had hoped. I love the butterfly and I embossed it so it's absolutely GORGEOUS in real life but maybe it was too big for this size card :S Ho Hum! This photo actually does it no justice...

The butterfly is from an Inkadinkado set. I am a die-hard Lizzie Anne Designs fan but I think I need to have more selection in my store and I had a lot of fun playing with this stamp.
My 2 lovely daughters are home from school today and tomorrow so we get to play :) My eldest daughter (9yrs old) is a read-a-holic and is currently ploughing through the Twilight series...she is WAY ahead of me! My youngest (7 yrs old) LOVES to draw. Both love making cards - just Mummy has a hard time sharing ;) tee hee.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend...roll on Spring!!!!
