Distress challenge

This little card is for the TPS distress challenge # 21.
The stamp is Lil Lolita Lilith, isnt she stunning.  Recipe is brown cardstock, craft card, film strip 7 gypsys, birdcage kaisercraft, flowers wild orchid, stamps for sentiments whimsey.  Netting from stash, the muslin flower was made out of my old hippie dress from the 60s, hey I wont be wearing it again so thought it would be a good idea to recycle it, so Ive made a start.  The lace punch for the edge is from Martha Stewart.
Didnt have to get new tyres for my car, just some new hoses that came from out of town so it had a sleep over at the Toyota Garage.  I though $325.00 was expensive for 2 hoses lol!  Thanks for looking :-)

Birthday card/Girl

Another nice day to get some walking done. No tyres needed for my warrant but we needed hoses of some sort and they had to get them from somewhere else, so the wee car had a sleep over at the Toyota Garage!
Today I have another of the Wee stamps on my entry into the girl birthday over at Claudia and Co.  Nice papers from pink petticoat, sentiment stamp from whimsey spellbinders dies, lots of glitter and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts UK.  Gems and ribbon from my stash.  Thank you for looking and have a great weekend :-)

Good Morning a drizzle day today, took my car down for a warrant first thing and walked back!  My exercise for the day.  Now Im keeping my fingers crossed that I dont need new tyres at $200 each.  Still you have to be safe.  Ive made this card for the vintage challenge over at Tickled Pink stamps.  I never colour in brown its just usually black and white so this was a big deal for me.  Not sure if I like the brown, but anyway here it is.  The background is a new technique that they were showcasing over at SCS.  Its a good way of using up scraps and bits, nice effect I though.  The wooden flourish is distressed with crackle paint, and has blue underneath.  Flowers from WOcrafts, ticket and stamp from Whimsey, white bakers twine.  I painted the hearts and tied them with wire for a different effect.  The rest is from my stash.  Hope everyone is having a great day.  Thanks for looking, and do appreciate your comments:-)

Ive been meaning to get this blog underway for a while now but its just finding the time, so am pleased Im up and running.  Have been cardmaking today, have fallen in luv with my new digi image from tickled pink stamps called Evie, she is GOR-GEOUS!  Ive made three different cards with the same image, and using my favourite colours black and white and a small acent here and there.  She lends herself feathers and glam!

Really love this new Stamp

Gosh the winds here today have wrecked havoc, the house next doors big brick fence came down and went through their window, what a noise it made.  So you will gather that the day isnt for walking, so I'll have to stick to the tredmill downstairs later!  I bought three new stamps yesterday and HAD to start on them straight away.  Isnt she adorable?
Recipe: White card, pink striped cardstock from stash, grey floral and grey backing card from pink petticoat.  Heart doily and flowers from O.Crafts, spellbinders butterfly, gingham ribbon, sentiment stamp from Whimsey, pink pearls  from stash.  Hope the weather continues, have two more to try out lol!  Ive entered this card in Challenge #81 (Butterflies) over at Claudia and Co.

Another cool day, but still managed to get a 6km walk in.  Did some babysitting for my great nephew Ryan and that was a load of fun.  Ive managed to get another card done this week, this is for the Tickled Pink stamps sketch challenge.  This is the fabulous stamp Lilth from their Lolitas range.
Thanks for looking.  Im still finding my way around this blog thing, but I guess practise makes perfect!
