Going around in Circles

These darling LOTV stamps were just begging to be put in circles and they
actually made the card themselves.
Had no idea what I was going to do when I started and then
the piece of Limeade card was exactly the right size and the scrap
of gold hologram card was just right too so it all fell into place.
I didn't get that middle circle set quite right though.
Well 2 out 3 isn't bad.
I am beginning to panic as I do every year that I will never be ready for Christmas.
Do have a stack of cards but will there be enough I doubt it

Plain and simple

Our lovely spring sunshine has gone today and it has been raining.
Ah well the garden needs it.

This came together so quickly it almost made itself and
I know it will go into an envelope, so easy to post overseas.
We have Hazel to thank for this as I have made it to go into her challenge
Black White and one other colour.
I didn't put any glitter on it as the person I have in mind to receive this
is not a glittery person.
Oh dear that doesn't sound right but you know what I mean. 

This is the inside.
The stamps and the DP are all Papermania with a LOTV tag and some
white satin ribbon from my stash and a red Zig pen.
You would think by now I could do straight, but its hand made so what can you expect!

 Am entering this in:
CHNC - Black White and one other colour
One stop craft challenge- Anything goes.
Charisma cardz - clean and simple.
Make it Monday - Anything goes Linky party.
ABC Christmas challenge - Up to you.
Just keep on creating - Christmas

Thank you for dropping in you are most welcome.

Brown Pink and Cream......

.....not my favorite colour combo but it wouldn't be a challenge if it was.
however I think it has turned out OK.
Wasn't too happy about the colouring of the embossed flower border,
should have used my chalks to colour this not the tombows.

Absolutely adore this little LOTV bear it can be used for anything and
he is sooo cute bless him.
Don't look too closely at the colouring as one of the earth tones I used is
getting dry and I could not get it to blend in at all.
Have refills on order so hope it is not too long before they appear.
The greeting is hand written in the empty tag from the LOTV set.

Searched and searched for the pink spotty paper and it was sitting on my
desk all the time.
The bow is one my daughter gave me recently a left over
from her ballroom dancing days.
Teddies feet and nose have been given dimensional magic treatment.
With some glitter and a few butterflies to complete the picture.

Am entering this in:

Ready Teddy Go - Brown Pink and Cream.
Flutterby Wednesday - Wings.
Ruby's Rianbow - Cute and Cuddly.
Lady Anne's challenge - Anything goes.
Make it Monday - Anything goes Linky party.
Just keep on creating - Anything goes.
Whoopsie Daisy - Happy Birthday.

Back to work

I have been absent for a while but I do have a good excuse you see I have had
my sister and niece staying and my niece was sleeping on a mattress on the floor of my craft room.
They came to help my husband and I celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary.
Yes you are not seeing things we have been married 60 years.
Our family organised a lovely party for us and we got our congratulations from the Queen
along with messages from our
local member of state parliament
Tasmanian Premier
Tasmanian Governor
Australian Prime minister and
The Governor General
It helps to have an aspiring politician in the family.
Must say we were a little overwhelmed by it all.

Well back to earth and a few more cards.
It's a while since I used a Tilda and this one was sitting waiting to be used.
The rhinestones in the small flowers are all the same colour though you wouldn't
know looking at this photo.
Wish I could remember what colours I used for her hair.

Haven't put much in the way of sparkle on this just some liquid pearl dots around her.

Am going to enter this in:
Christmas stamping all year round - Anything goes.
Christmas card challenge - Sketch.
Just keep on creating - Christmas
Make it Monday - Anything goes linky party

Thank you for dropping in you are most welcome.
