This card has been a pain in the neck!!!  I know exactly what I wanted to do but it decided it would to do it's one thing. I have so many March birthdays I thought I would make a start in making a collection. I used the beautiful Magnolia Zodiac Pisces and coloured Tilda with a combination of  Prisma colours, Polychromos and Copics.
The image decided it wanted a border - the Peg Stamps are in storage so I had to improvise and used Simon Says Clear Stamp Thinking of You with one of the flowers and a few of the leaves and coloured them - the flower center are used with the Judikins Sticky Stuff Embossing Powder and Hero Arts Sparkling Ultra Fine Glitter along with the Simon Stamps Die Sketchy Banner sentiment, which I forgot to list the link!!!
I actually liked the result of this card, despite of the fact it chose  
I have shown and link the Tilda and stamp below and I couldn't add them in the Inlinkz list.

I have plenty of corrugated card - various colour and types  -  still in storage !!! I did try and strip down some pieces of card but they all seemed to stuck together and just tore, so off I went into town to get some - would you believe it - no-one in the whole town had any - BUT - I did see some corrugated ribbon so that will just have to do!!!
The image is from Saturated Canary and called Diane and have coloured her with Copics - I did slightly tinted her specs and intended to add Glossy Accents to give here with glass - I forget and onso forgot to add her some lipstick- ooopsa - I have added it now but had no time to re-photograph her again.

lovely hAnglAr or sweet Magnolia .............Buttons!!!


Hi everyone we are back with our new challenge this fortnight we would like to see

Buttons 

Now we have some happy news !! 
We have a lovely new teamie,  she was our guest last challenge and agreed to join  us......


and we are sponsored by the lovely 


Lifelong crafters Mother and Daughter, Mary and Andrea were tired of having to buy full rolls of ribbon and lace when they only needed one metre. Because they love ribbons and all things pretty, they decided to open their own online shop in 2010 and make small quantities of beautiful products easily available to all crafters. Mary owns the shop and runs it on a day to day basis as well as keeping the website updated while Andrea looks after the social side, The Ribbon Girl Blog and the Design Team. They specialise in supplying small (or large) quantities of ribbon, twine, gorgeous vintage style lace and seam binding ribbon, tiny pom-pom and ric-rac trim, all sorts of buttons, fancy pins, a multitude of charms, pearl and crystal flourishes, wool felt squares, seasonal and unusual embellishments, mulberry flowers, sticky tape and accessories to card makers, crafters, scrapbookers and cake decorators. They stock only the best quality products and only offer for sale goods that they would personally buy and use themselves
with this great prize



I've used one of the Pink Lemonade images and this one is 'Tilda with Summer Pants'and coloured her with Copics.  I'm not a lover of buttons but found these is one of my boxes, they were a little dark so I coated them with Ranger Stickles Dry Fine Glitter STAR DUST .
The La La Land Filigree Corner are litked but for some reason do not show the image - this happens often but I can't work up why so you'll have to use your imagination!!!

I couldn't find any 'spot & dots' in my available papers (I bet there are hundreds in storage!!!)
I resorted to using my Simon Says Stencil Polka Dot Party (I love these and lost without them!!!) - I ran them through the Big Shot to add a little dimension and coloured them random with Simon Says two coloured inks. I took a few of the images and coloured them with Copics and added three of the fishes within the waves. I had great fun used the two paper card stock doing some ripping and tearing the waves (haven't done that for ages!!) On hindsight I decided to add a little Stickles along the edges of the waves - they do look better IRL but hardly show in the photograph - I probably shouldn't have bothered!!!
