LOTV Sneak Peek - Aimi

Hi, hope the sun is shining for you today.

I have another of the new LOTV Geisha girls to share today,
If you are lucky enough to be going to the coffee morning at the shop tomorrow
you will be able to get hold of these little cuties then,
Otherwise the on-line release will be 1st October!

This little beauty is called Aimi, which translates to "Love & Beauty" I think she's so pretty.
I have kept this card fairly simple to my usual style and not totally happy with it.
The papers are Teresa Collins - Fabrications and I have stamped one of the gorgeous 
Grunge Corners from LOTV which sits perfectly with this oriental style image.
The Willow dragonfly is from Memory box, and I have used a my new Prima Donna Petals, Flower die, which at the minute I'm not 100% sure if it's really me! I'll have to have a bit more of a play with it.

Make sure you pop over to the Inspiration Blog where you'll find more gorgeous samples of the new release

Hope the weather's not too bad where you are!
It was quite wet & windy here last night and there was a

Anyhow I have a LOTV Christmas card to share today.
 I love this image of Victoria With Pup she looks quite grown up.
I have also used the Christmas Grungy Messages

I have used my new Snow-covered tree die, which I bought from Ally Pally, It's available in two sizes, but I just got the large and reduced the number of layers used.

Thank you for looking and for your lovely comments.

Wishing and Waiting

Good evening,
Running a bit late with this post,

Been busy today wrapping Mac's pressies for tomorrow.
Finishing her card.
Then made a chocolate cake.
Plus all the other day to day bits and pieces.
Then had to take Fletch to the vets, 
he's got an ear infection and it cost £66 for his treatment!!!

Mac will be 10, but if you could hear what she was dancing to earlier,
you'd think she was a lot older,
She was listening to a T.Rex CD
Good Choice Mac!!!

Anyway finally got round to finishing a LOTV Xmas card which has been coloured in for ages.

This darling image is called


and the tag
I have used:
LOTV ~ Wishing and Waiting and Christmas Circular Sentiments
Raspberry Road ~ Fight Like a Girl
DooHickey ~ Vintage Tag, Poinsettia & Leaves
Nestabilities ~ Eyelet Square
Go Kreate ~ Frilly #4
WOC ~ Metal Corner
SU ~ Seam Binding

Penny Black ~ Celebrate the Wonder Sentiment

Diving Tilda & some exciting news

Hello, It seems ages since my last post.
I have a few images coloured and ready to make into cards,
but I didn't do much crafting in the last week of the hols.

Mac has now gone back to school, although for some reason, with great reluctance.
Today's the first day we've had no tears.

Anyway she's 10 next week, and she's having a swimming party tomorrow 
(hopefully it won't get cancelled this year)

I've made her a card to give her tomorrow & one for on her actual birthday ~ which I'll share later.

Here's her card for tomorrow, quite plain for me.
I've used:
Magnolia ~ Diving Tilda 
Raspberry road ~ Denim & Diamonds
Marianne ~ Chinese Rose
Tim Holtz ~ Hardware Findings & DIs
Pearls from stash

I also have some awesome news.

The lovely Bev emailed me last weekend and asked me if
 I'd like to join them over at Just Magnolia
Well it took me all of 2.3 seconds to make my decision LOL.
So I start next Friday & I can't wait!

Thanks for looking & your gorgeous comments, they really do mean a lot to me.
