Magnolia-licious DT - Make a Bookmark Challenge


Good morning my dears,  It's time for a new
challenge over at


 Magnolia-licious 


For the next two weeks we have the theme of 

"Bookworm"

We would love to see all your gorgeous Bookmarks

I chose to make a corner bookmark and to use sweet 
Sneaky Tilda from the Animal of the Year 2014 
collection and she is still available over at the store HERE


I've kept the embellishments to a minimum and the back is very plain with just pretty paper.  The flowers are a Doohickey die and
if memory serves me well they are hellebore dies. 

Our Sponsor is a always the lovely Candy who will be
sending our random winner a gift voucher to spend in store.


Thank you so much for popping in to visit I look forward to visiting all your amazing creations over the next couple of weeks. 
 In the meantime have a wonderful day.

Hugs

Crafter's Companion Inspirers DT - A Strong Woman!!!



Good morning my dears,  I'm here to share my latest
card with you for the Inspirers DT over at

Crafter's Companion


How utterly stunning is this fabulous new collection
of stamps from the very talented Sheena Douglass.

This is part of our Birthday week celebration launches
and although this is way out of my comfort zone I 
loved colouring her in my particular style. 

I've used Spectrum Noir alcohol pens and pencils on her
keeping the colour theme throughout the card with the 
blacks and purples. 

I will pop a list of ingredients used at the bottom
of my post for you.

In the meantime I wish you all a fabulous weekend ahead.
