LOTV card

Good afternoon crafters... Hope you are all keeping warm and dry.. have to say, we are lucky here on the South East coast, and have escaped a lot of the snow that the rest of the Country seems to have been hit by.

I was having a good old sort out of images, and OMG... I had forgotten I had some gorge LOTV ones, that I got free in a magazine a while back. smack my wrists lol... so... out come the copics and as it happened, I spotted this weeks challenge over at Lili's Little Fairies blog, and the theme is Spring colours :) To me, Spring is Yellows and Greens... so hence the colour ways on card.

Mind you... not looking much like Spring (or feeling it), outside at the moment. lol...   All the papers I have used are by SU, as is the ribbon,. Not sure where I got the sentiment from..  Yellow flowers punched out using the Retro flower punch, have to say, I love those punches.    Image by LOTV. and.... Copics used are.

Skin E00, E01, E11, R20. Hair (for what there is of it lol)... E17, 15 and 13. Dress YG63,67,11,13 AND 17. Shoes.. R20,22,24 and C1,3,5.  Hat Y21,23,26, 28. and YR13. 

Right... Im offski to sort car out.. petrol and tyres.. I hate that job... but think she running on fumes at moment. lol....  But we got a girly crafters meet at end of week, so I best put some petrol in or wont be going very far at all. :) Hope you all have a grand day... hugs J. xx

Little bit of paper piecing.

Thought I would try something a bit different again,..... :) This card has been moved all around my desk for weeks now, just waiting to be finished off... finally !!!! hurrah... it come together. 
This has still got to be one of my fav stamps, had it ... a few years, but still love it...  I not only paper pieced this image, but also decoupaged it as well.. hey get me lol.. (only by mistook I hasten to add). :) 

the image is by Sarah Kay, the little tag is a freebee from a magazine.. as is the yellow backing paper,  Simply Dots by Bearly Mine Designs,  Lace, pearls, brads and Flowers from stash, three lilac paper flowers at bottom by Fred She Said.

Well with that done and finally finished, time to have a good clear up... again, of my craft room... and onto my next project.  

Have a happy fun filled weekend all... happy crafting.. hugs Jackie x

I tried to steer clear of  my copics... !!! but, as you can see from above, it did not work LOL...

For this one I used Shabby Vintage and Simply Dots by Bearly Mine Designs,  flower decoupage from stash, and computer generated sentiment.  The inside is decorated to match the front :) (yeah get me lol).

Card no. 2.

Spring Blossoms and Micro dots papers by Bearly Mine Designs.  card stock SU, ribbons from stash, punches Retro flower. Sentiment a freebee with my monthly subscribtion to craft magazine.
