I have chosen an image by The Paper Shelter, (as they are one of our sponsers this week), you must pop in there, there are some really cute images to be had. All the papers are by Bearly Mine Designs, you defo got to take a gander at Donna's  new Christmas Sets, gorgeous.

The dp's I have used are from the Paperlace, simply dots and a freebie (yep if you didnt know Donna gives away some fabby papers every month, how generous is that :))

Copics used are

We have some fabby prizes up for grabs again, so I hope a lot of you will join in the fun and take part.  I know it hurts to cut into those gorge papers you are all stashing and stroking, but go on, be brave and go for it lol...  Im off for a caffine fix.. then I might wake up a bit.. yep, someone overslept this morning :)
Have a fab fortnight all... and I will be back at Bearly  Mine with a new challenge then.

Totally Tilda Challenge - 32

Good afternoon all you crafters, had visitors this morning, which totally threw me, and had not scheduled my posting... grrr. that will teach me.  So a tad late in posting.. apologies.

There is a brand new challenge starting over at Totally Tilda Challenge Blog today, and will run for two weeks, so plenty of time to get your thinking caps on.

The challenge is.... to Decorate a chipboard beermat, (coaster), or a mini album.

I have had to sit this one out I am afraid, as life got in the way a bit for me this week, however, the rest of the team have done a FABULOUS job of the challenge, so please make sure you head over to the challenge blog and check out what they have all come up with... all I can say  is WOW... and there is some truly wonderful inspiration there.

I will be back with you on the next challenge.... :) but will still be dropping by to view your wonderful creations and leaving some love :).... Enjoy the rest of your day... and I look forward to seeing all your makes over the next two weeks.  hugs Jackie x

Totally Tilda Challenge - 31

Good Morning all, and a very wet one here in Kent... yuk.. but I am still a happy little bunny with a big smile on my face... two reasons... one obviously new shiney car being delivered tomorrow morning and TWO.... I am now officially on the Design Team at Totally Tilda Challenge Blog yippeeeee... Susie very kindly asked me a short while ago, and after a short think.. lol... I happily accepted... and today's card/challenge is my debut.:)

The theme for this fortnight is  WEDDING (and Edwin can  come too) LOL

I have chosen to use Tilda and her little bridesmaid, every bride got to have one :),

I have used what has got to be my fav nestibility at of the moment, made my own bp, as wasnt happy with much I had in my stash... now why is that? I have HUNDREDS, probably thousands of papers ,one way and another... and yet.... I couldnt find anything suitable LOL , so out come my trusty SU roller wheels, SU pink pad and happy rollering LOL.  ohh same thing applied with the ribbon too, nothing again was what I had in mind.. (need another trip to haberdashery s hop).. so used up oddments of organza and copic'd them..
The sentiment is by Lynne, at Sentiments 4 You, who is sponsering this challenge.

I used a lot of the C  numbers, glamour dust, flowers from Wild Orchid,
Skin E000,00,01,11,13 R20
Hair on bride E00, E11, 13, 15, 17, 19
Bridesmaid? not a clue.. as had to improvise when her blonde trusses went slightly wrong LOL ... so quick cover up as everything else was coloured in at that point ! grrr. so not entirely happy with her hair.
Dress  I tried out this new techinque of folds, so another first for me, lots more practice me thinks... but I was happy with the way it turned out, R20, 22, 24, and same for shoes..
I am also entering this into the TOMIC challenge... make your own backgrounds. 
Make sure you drop by Totally Tilda challenge blog and check out the other DT's cards they are all fabby...
I love all the different effects and techinques and talent :) that the girls have used. I would love to see hundreds on entries.... hehe, well a bit of Jackie support is always welcomed LOL

I am off for a strong cuppa and then I MUST add all the girls to my side bar... (I failed dismally in the week as I lost the lot, grrr)... mr blogger was playing up AGAIN, he needs sacking LOL.

Have a fabby Sunday all... and I look forward to seeing all your fabby takes on this theme... so lots of brides, bridesmaids, a groom would be handy too.  :)
Happy Crafting...
Hugs Jackie. xxx
