Delightful Thursday (Late)

I have my post for Digital Delights Thursday which is obviously very late (sorry).  This is due to the fact that I am have had a huge personal trauma in my life and I just cannot get my head around blogging/crafting at the moment.  I won't bore you with the details but I do apologise for not getting around to see and comment on all your lovely blogs. I am hoping normal service will return soon and promise to catch up with you all I hope you can bear with me a while longer xxx

Slumber Party

A big welcome to my blog and thank you for calling by!  I had a wonderful and exhausting time in London with my two Grandsons.  Back home to a very wild and windy Blackpool.  It was so windy during the night I got up a few times to make sure everything was still intact!

I have my last card as part of Beccy's Place Design Team, my that six months has flown by!  I would like to thank Beccy for having me on the team and giving me the chance to work with her fabulous images.  My card is from the new Sleepover Set which is available here.


I coloured the image with my Copics and used Victorian Velvet DI whilst it was still in the Spellbinders Oval Die.  The papers are Nitwits Bumbleberry.  I used Spellbinders Lacy Ovals to mat the image, Dienamics Fishtail Stax and Memory Box Precious Stars.  The border was made with a Martha Stewart border punch. 

Please go over to Beccy's Place and see what the rest of the DT have done with this fun set.

My Little Chickadee

Good morning hope you are having a good week, its been really beautiful weather here on the Northwest Coast.  Today I have a card to share with you for the Digital Delights Blog, if you take a trip over there the rest of the DT have done some gorgeous projects for you.  Here is mine:



This little sweetie is called  Chickadee and is available here. I coloured her with my Copics and fussy cut her out.  The papers are Nitwits Daffodil Joy and the sentiment is from the Easter Sentiments Set which is available here. I used Spellbinders Circles for the mat and Butterfly Circle.  The card was made using my Go Kreate XXL Scallop Square die.  The border was made using my X Cut border die.  I used yellow and pink ribbon but I am not sure if you can see it that well!



Hopefully I will be able to come back and enter some challenges. A busy day today, going round to clean my Aunt's house then take her out for lunch.  Tomorrow I am driving down to London to spend the weekend with my Grandsons so I will have to sort my things out today so I can get an early start.
Thank you so much for looking and the lovely comments you leave, have a lovely weekend whatever your plans are. See you soon.

Delightful Thursday

A big welcome to my blog so lovely to see you here! Yesterday was a beautiful Spring day, gorgeous sunshine and no wind.  I took Rowan onto Stanley Park in Blackpool we fed the ducks (although Rowan ate his bread) and went on the swings.  So nice to have such a lovely day hopefully with more to come.

Today its time for another Delightful Thursday where the DT of Digital Delights Blog showcase some of the wonderful images available in the Digital Delights Store. My card fits in beautifully with this lovely Spring weather:



This image is so cute and called Precious Bunny available here and the sentiment is from the Easter Sentiments set available here. I coloured the image with my Copics and the papers are Nitwits "Hoppy Hearts".  I used my Go Kreate XXL Scallop Square die for the card shape.  I cut the image out using Spellbinders Circles and framed him with a Marianne die through which I inked some Broken China DI.  The sentiment was cut out using a die from Dienamics Blueprints 21.  The flower is Memory Box Fabulous Phlox and I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the border.


Please have a look at the rest of the Design Team work here for lots of fabulous inspiration!
