Bella with Presents - a book card

Hello, Lisa here with my DT creation for this week :o)

I needed a card for a cardmaking friend who's celebrating a 'special' birthday - she banned me from putting her age on the card though lol!  I decided to make a book card, as it gave me a handy little space to put her pressie... stamps of course!

Seam binding - chalk white (dyed with lavender memento ink)

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Amy...on a cool day!

Hi all,
…so how are you fairing on this, the hottest day of the year…so far?! Whether you’re cooking by gas or beginning to look like a piece of limp lettuce, I have a clean, fresh, crisp card to show you that was made several weeks ago when the weather was oh so much cooler!!!

These Prima Meadow Lark papers are some of my favourites and this Whimsy 'Amy' stamp is such a cutie... I did so enjoy colouring her in! Here's a close up of the image coloured with copics:

..and another picture of the embellies...

Stamps: Whimsy Amy

Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy the rest of your day…with or without an ice pack!

Dandelion Girl

Hello all on this very overcast and muggy day...I have a card to show you that I made many weeks ago...when the weather was, dare I say, fabulous! I've used a lovely Whimsy image called 'Dandelion Girl'...she's such a cutie, isn't she? Takes me back to my childhood when I, too, blew the dandelion clocks...and someone else did the weeding! The sentiment is one of my current favourites from the Whimsy 'Ticket Notes' set.

The papers are from the fabulous Prima Fairy Belle pad with co-ordinating wooden button on ivory crotchet lace. All details below - linked products available at The Stamp Basket.
Tools: Whimsy Corner Die Set; memento tuxedo black ink; Martha Stewart frond branch punch;

Thanks for stopping by - your comments are so much appreciated. Hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

A Little Bit of Country

Hi all,
The sun is shining and the weekend is nearly here! I have a card to show you today using an image from Stampavie called 'A Little Bit of Country''s the sort of image that makes my heart sing!

For the sentiment, I've chosen one from the lovely Whimsy Ticket Note stamp set...such lovely words on this set and a great way to send a little message to a friend or relative! We have finally managed to get hold of the Whimsy Ticket dies to use with this stamp set...harder to source than Hen's teeth, believe me...and I'm very pleased to say, we now have a good supply in stock! 

My papers are from the lovely Prima Fairy Belle pad with co-ordinating Prima Essential Fairy Belle Petals and Fairy Belle wooden button (these are gorgeous..lots of different shapes: hearts, stars, circles, all in muted tones!). All other embellies are listed below. 

Stamps: Stampavie A Little Bit of Country; Whimsy Ticket Notes

..and before I go, there's still time to grab a bargain in our summer sale which ends on Monday 13th August don't miss out! 
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great day!
