Hi everyone I hope that you are all well and happy. Welcome once again to my little bit of blogland. Im not sure what has happened but this is the 2nd time I have done this post the first one is nowhere to be found so blogger is having a hissy fit or something I think, who knows it might come back again lol so if any of my lovely followers have already commented THANK YOU ! but now down to business. There's a brand new challenge over at Stamping with the Dragon and we the DT have been spoilt again with some gorgeous digis to work with. The theme for this challenge is Lets go green, I decided to go a little out of my comfort zone and created a rocker card. Here it is and I hope that you like it.
 

Goodies used and recipe

Topper: I used the Luck of the Irish digi image, coloured it with a selection of promarkers and attached it to a piece of the simple man paper then added it to the card

Tsunami Rose - Altered heart -March

Hi everyone I hope you are all well and happy. Its that time again, time for me to create something using printables designed by our lovely Daisy Collins.
For this project we are able to create anything and use any of Daisy's printables so I decided to alter an MDF heart and heres what I did.




Goodies used and recipe
 Ok so I have used a 5" MDF heart that on one side I brushed Modge Podge and then covered it with paper from the Parisian Daydream collection. I chose the Parisian Daydream p...
aper as it really is way up there on my list of printables and downloads, its just so beautiful and a real pleasure to work with. After I had added the paper I gave it a layer of Modge Podge wich has given it a subtle satiny finish and left to dry, when dry I inked around the edge with pink ink from Papermania, around a cm away from the the edge of the heart I glued some pink and white bakers twine and added some jute to the top right and bottom left of the heart. Across the centre of the heart I have added some cute sparkly 5mm pink rik rac ribbon over that I have added some lovely white lace and topped it with a sentiment from the Ephemera samplers range. To embellish I have added flowers with feathers and a hatpin at the bottom of the heart, feathers to the top left of the sentiment, a butterfly to the top right, pink gems around the edge and last but not least a 6 mm satin bow in the middle.
This heart I have created is going to play a very important role in Mothers day this year it will be beautifully displayed in its own box made from strong acetate and will be part of the arrangements that I take to my gorgeous moms resting place. So thank you Daisy for giving me such gorgeous papers to work with which in has helped me cre
ate something that my mom would love.
