Cute little LOTV Bunnies

This is an Anniversary card with some cute little LOTV bunnies on it.  I have coloured with my Promarkers. I have used ribbons, multi coloured glittery lace, gems, stick on butterfly  and some die cut hearts as embellishments.  The  sketch I followed is from Crafty Catz.  The hearts are cut from some special chip paper (gold in colour as it is for a golden wedding anniversary)

Ro's Door Hanger

This is my sons door hanger, you all thought that I had forgotten him didn't you!  I made one for him too.
The image is an old sugar nellie called Rory the lion. He's lovely and cuddly looking, just like Ro really. hehe

I have coloured with my Promarkers, used some scraps of paper for laying up, some eyelash fibres, an old plastic snake (recycled) and some cool stickers from my stash, including a stamp of a dinosaur and a dragon chipboard die cut.  All the sorts of things he loves.

Thanks for popping by, hugs to you all and this is what I am entering this with:-)

Miss Evie - Flowers for Evie

Last post for today. I have made this for Evie for her door too and have used the fabby Miss Evie - Flowers, matted onto  yellow papermania card, then onto some thick mulberry paper which has batique stars on it.  The Flowers are silk and also diecut. There is four flowers layered up to make the diecut flower and just two of the large silk ones layered and attached with a superb large brad I got from The Factory Shop (Up until now i had no idea that they did this sort of crafting items).

Here I am Fluttering By.

Now this door hanger / label is for another daughter her blog is called Tishy's Mystical Manor of Masterpieces and her fave colour is blue.  I have created a 'F'rame for this image out of blue ribbon and have wrapped the ribbon with 'F'ibres. In the corners are some gemstone 'F'lowers and have used several diecut 'F'lowers to build a large flower and added a couple of flowers on stems.  She has lovely little butterflies in her jar and pretty bows in her hair. The song I always think of when I use butterflies is 'love is like a butterfly' corny I know, but that was part of growing up.

I am entering her into Flutterby Wednesday - Which is anything goes so long as you have a butterfly or angel or fairy on your creation. They are being sponsored this week by Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps .

Yummy Chocolate multifold gift and card in one

Just a quicky as they say. This is a card I made for one of my bestest friends and I have been wanting to use these sentiments from Kanban for some time. And this was that moment.  The image is from Squiggle Stamps and is called Shy Goth Girl from the Goth Kidz series.

Pretty much everything else is from my stash.

HOPPY HALLOWE'EN BLOG HOP at Squiggle Stamps Blog

Wowee, my first scheduled post, hope it works okay and that you are arriving from Tracy our Guest Designer over at Squiggle Stamps for our HUGE Hoppy Hallowe'en Blog Hop. If not then please head back to the main post at HQ and start at the very beginning.
The first thing you need to do to be in with a chance of winning the spooky fun hallowe'en digi image that I am showcasing on my card for you today,  is to simply leave me a comment, perhaps tell me which image from the new releases is your fave or how you celebrate Hallowe'en. 
 The second thing we would like you to do is pop our Hoppy Hallowe'en Blog Hop Banner on your sidebar. With a link back to the Blog Hop Post at Squiggle Stamps Blog.

Here's my card for your inspiration, I have used the fabby image called 'trick or treat' and lots of fun embellies to brighten up the whole sweet experience.  Candy, flowers and of course some spooky spiders, couldn't resist popping those on! For the background I have used several different whispers inkpads to produce the colourful finish. I stamped a web image all over in soft and stronger shades of ink, but you can only really see some of them as I sort of went wild with the flowers and webs and spiders ho hum, couldn't help myself was so loving using this image. Okay stop with the waffling now and on with the Hoppy Hallowe'en Blog Hop.

When you have left me a comment then please continue to the lovely Kimberly who has I am certain produced a marvellous Squiggles Creation for you to enjoy. You have until September 7th to complete, have fun.
Thanks for hopping with us Good Luck!!

SNEAKY PEEKY and Hallowe'en Hanger with Squiggle Stamps Digis

Oooh have I got a lovely post for you today.  This is a Hallowe'en Hanger. I have made it using some old wooden coasters that have been just waiting for the right images to come along.  Of course when I saw the New Releases from Squiggle Stamps I couldn't help myself.  So here goes.

All coasters have been wrapped in a thin paper to give a base to work from and to leave a neat back surface.

First Coaster  is showcasing the fabulous Witchy Girl from the Goth Kidz digis.  She and the others have been coloured in with my Promarkers and I have used or should say recycled part of a lemon bag for the backing, not quite a web, but a net anyway.  I have used a fun little froggy to complete the piccy and wound some of my fabby fibres among the net.
Second Coaster is showcasing a more piratical image, isn't she gorgeous, she is called SNEAKY PEEKY SNEAKY PEEKY Yes that's right I have managed to get a wee Sneaky Peek at an image that is coming soon and as of yet has no name. I have matted and layered with black and moss green plain papers and have added some bling with mother of pearl chips, some tibetan silver large beads and an enamelled bead connector. Gotta have some treasure!!

Third Coaster is showcasing a scary looking Wizard, NOT!  Isn't he great, reminds me of a young Harry or Ron, perhaps with a wig even Hermione.  He is also from the Goth Kidz series. I have wrapped a piece of black ribbon into a cross and added jute and an 'eye' which is a recycled badge which I hoarded from last year.
Fourth Coaster is showcasing a gorgeous dinky ghoulz witchy who is so darn cute, just look at those eyes, all the better to bewitch you with, hmm, might be getting a little carried away methinks. She is from the Dinky Ghoulz New Release. I have popped her onto a more nature orientated background as I have coloured her with lots of greens and matted her onto some thick mulberry paper that I have used for punching leaves from, but love the paper so much have kept it.  Until now that is!  The wee spider web and spider table confetti finish it off.

Fifth and last Coaster, at last I hear you say. This funtastic image is of course Franky Boy or to use his given name Frankenstein Boy.  Just adorable what else can I say.  Got the chance to use my white pen as faux stitching to finish off the black layers as they didn't really show up enough.  Added the rubber skull as a wee token.

Sorry about the Sarcophagus, What else was I meant to hang the Hallowe'en offering on?
Hope you have enjoyed my spooky fun, hallowe'en hugs to everyone, you'd never guess it's one of my fave times of the year. Now would you?!?

Don't forget there is just one day left to enter the funtastic Spooky Squiggle Stamps Hoppy Hallowe'en Blog Hop..
So many lovely prizes to be won and a digi to be won at every dt's special Hop Post. 
If you miss the Hop, don't despair, you can still enter the Spooky Fun Challenge and can be in with a chance to win some rubba or some digis.
