To have and to hold


Hello my lovelies and how are you this evening
the windy is quite brought this evening and we had
a hail storm when I was walking Mr Sexy Dexy.
I hope there aren't to many suffering from the cold and snow
in the US.  It looks frightful in Boston and the East coast at
the moment, so wishing all of my US friends a safe winter :)XX

I would like to share with you lovely peeps this evening
I have a CAS Wedding Card, I used Whimsy Stamps
To have and To Hold Sentiments, I coloured the
flowers with Bruynzeel metallic pencils and i embossed the
sentiment with Midnight Ruby Obsidian and did a little
decoupage on the flower at the top of the stamp the embossing
folder used was by Tim Holtz.....

So without further ado......





Items used
Tim Holtz embossing folder
Metallic pencils
Purple card from stash ages old
Ribbon from stash ages old, lol

I and entering this into the following Challenges

night lovelies and i hope you are all safe warm and cosy,

Sentiment Wedding Favour

Hello fine folks and how are you this evening
I hope you have had a lovely day :)

I would like to share my inspiration piece
with you lovely folks today I made a pillow box as a Wedding
favour i started with a blank piece of card used some distress inks
to colour it then i used random stamps from
Whimsy Sentiment To have and To Hold and here is the
finished piece.
The wrap around was made using the Butterfly Border Die
and because I have some Silver on the box, so I coordinated
by using silver to extend the die so it fastens
So without further ado..........












Items Used Whimsy Sentiments To have & To hold 

This is a little late because this should have been last weeks post,
I will be back with another Whimsy post on Wednesday.
Have fun my lovelies and thank you so much for stopping by

Its New Beginnings at the Whimsy Stamps Challenge


Good Morning my lovelies i hope you are well,
its whats the weather like with you peeps, have you had lots
of fluffy white beautiful snow, I haven't had so much as a flake
where I live in Cornwall.

Its Challenge day over at Whimsy Stamps and we would love
it if you came along and joined the fun, the 
theme for this month is New Beginnings you could
make a Wedding, Baby, New Home, New Job card.

So why not come on over to the Whimsy Challenge Blog
 and join the fun, if your mojo is on the down low,
don't worry there is lots of inspiration for you
and some amazing cards made by my uberly talented team mates .

This is my DT inspiration piece, I used Crissy Armstrong's

Createful of Kittens   for my inspiration piece, 
and the Butterfly Border Die, I just ran it through my die cutting 
machine 4 times and then laid them over the face of my card, 
the wings kind of fit together like a jigsaw when you lay them out
so it looks like a full cover plate and not a border die :) 
I coloured the Kittens with Copics although i fear that the Red 
one looks like a Chow Chow pup lol.


Have a lovely day my friends and Thank You all so much for stopping by
its means a lot, I see i ahem couple of new followers
hello and welcome
Take care my friends ttfn
