Pretty in purple and pink DT 

 Today i would like to share with you not a card but a folder i have created to store my printed off Sherri Baldy Digi's and  to invite you all to a new challenge over at where the theme this week is use dies or punches.

I created the folder using Creata Kraft card which is a very sturdy card and was perfect for the job .
As you can see i have used a wonderful and sweet fairy image 6122 coloured her in purple and pale pink tones using my Pro markers.The picture above is the front cover of my folder.

 I have decorated the spine of my folder and added a label so i know what folder is when when it is stored .

 The above picture is of the inside of my folder as i wanted it to look just as pretty on the inside as i did the outside . 

All products i have used are from Creata . The Gems and 2 small brads  are from my stash and i used pro markers to colour my image .

I am entering this into the Besties Challenge as a DT make .
The image can be found HERE over at sherri Baldi's Etsy shop
or HERE at the scrapbook Society .
All Creata products used can be found at or on

Thank you for stopping by

Sharing the Glamour of Glamoureyes 

Good morning  today i would like to share with you some of the cards i have created using the wonderful Digis that have been designed by Glamoureyes. You will find their Shop HERE with a lovely collection of Digi stamps and clear stamps or you could pop   over and visit their Face book page Here.

My first card i have created using a very special image "Lady Glamoureyes " herself . Isn't she wonderful !!
She came to me as a pre coloured image and i wanted to take the colours into my card to give a feel of the period of which she would of come from .

The card base is a 6 x 6 natural card colour , the papers are from my stash . I have distressed all the edges on my card and papers using a craft knife and inked with Victorian pink ink.
I used a single die cut doily edge with vintage phote ink and cut in half to create the feel of 2 doily's behind the image . The bow and rose base's are created from white lace and inked with both of the above inks to create a vintage feel. Pearls added for a little special touch .

 Beautiful shoes are what we all love and i have used Glamoureyes Shoe Digi to create 2 cards both using the same Digi  but with 2 very different looks . 1 shoe lots of creations .

I hope you could pop by and say hi to Glamoureyes and take a look at the wonderful Digi's and stamps that they create . You can also have your own personalised stamps created for you .

Thank you for stopping by

Think Pink !!!

Hi and Happy Sunday , I trust you all are well and for those who are not i send you a get well hug .
Today i'm sharing with you a heart wall hanger i have created from a chipboard heart  and a wonderful Sherri Baldy  Digi . 

 I have painted the base heart white then using a stencil and a pink paint to create the background flowers . 
The image i chose to work with was a pre coloured image (a bit of a cheat ) but as we all know some times we just don't have time to do the colouring . Her name is Miss Flopsie  .

I have used lace as a edging to the heart  embossed a few tickets from light pink silk card then inked with a darker pink to bring out the embossing .

 I have created 2 arrays of flowers adding a couple of gems and a couple of hat pins .

My final touches were a ribbon to hang the heart and a tassel to dangle from the bottom .
I would like to enter  this into the Think Pink Challenge over at
Thank you for stopping by and have a super day
