WOJ CHALLENGE 86 and DT call

I'm starting to wind down now as going away on Saturday to Cornwall for a week so this will be  my last posting until a week on Monday.  I haven't entered a WoJ challenge for a while so been as though there is a fantastic sketch to follow created by Jane there is also a DT call.

I adore this Confirmand Melinda stamp, I coloured her in copics and added silver Twinkles writer and white Shimmerz to her wings and shrug.

The dp I have used is from Magnolia Once Upon a Time paper series Pink Starlit and Angel Love.  I used a white paper doily behind the circle, Rose Pink cardstock and ribbon from SU, roses from wildorchidcrafts, sentiment is Just Rite Birthday Sentiments cut out with my Woodware circle punch and peals from Hobbycraft.

Well our roofer has managed to slate half our roof which is good considering the awful weather we have been having - just can't wait to see it finished! 

I made an anniversary card last week for my mom and dad now its the turn of my friends to celebrate their wedding anniversary on September 1st and as I adore this particular Magnolia image I had to use it once again!  I am entering this into Sketch Saturday challenge 117 and Wild Orchid Challenge 4 - Make it Sparkle!

The image has been coloured in with copics and pink stickles on Tilda's dress.  I then cut out with my circular Nestability.  The backing card is from Stampin Up called Pixie Pink and the dp is from Papermania Paper Pack called Confetti.  The heart borders was cut out with my Martha Stewart Valentine Lace punch and the sentiment is from Just Rite Wedding Stamp Ensemble stamped in Memento Rose Bud ink and cut out with a smaller circular Nestability.  Roses are all from wildorchidcrafts which I added more pink stickles to.  Adhesive pink gems from Hobbycraft.

It's my mom and dad's 41st Wedding Anniversary next Monday and I couldn't resist using this Magnolia couple stamp which I won recently for the Magnolia Down Under challenge which is to include a Tilda and Edwin image.  I have followed a sketch which was on Just Magnolia a few weeks ago but I missed the deadline for it!

I have coloured this lovely image in with copics and cut out with my circular nestability and added pink chalk around the outside of it.  All the dp is from the same Papermania paper pack called Confetti which I mounted onto Pixie Pink cardstock from SU.  The ribbon is from my stash.  For the sentiment I used my newly purchased stamp from Just Rite, cut out with my circlular nestie and edged again in pink chalk.



Its my best friend's eldest daughter's 21st birthday on Sunday and she loves the Gothic scene so was really pleased to use this Sweet Pea Stamp again.  I am entering this into Sweet Stampin Challenge which is to use your favourite stamp and Friday Sketchers 115.

I have used my Sweet Pea Love Is Gone stamp, coloured her in with copics and glitter and mounted onto red and black cardstock.  The dp I have used is from Express Yourself DIY paper pack, ribbon from stash and flowers are from Craftime.

I just thought I would manage to create this next card before heading off to London for the weekend with hubby and daughter.  We have booked a bus sight seeing tour which also includes a free river boat cruise so should be quite good.

I have made this next card for the gorgeous sketch challenge by Bev over on LOTV which again I have made another Christmas card (no excuses this year lol)

I have used my new LOTV stamp called All Wrapped Up, coloured in with my Prisma's, added pink and purple glitter for detail and cut out with my oval nestability.  I then layered onto Orchid Opulence cardstock from Stampin Up cut out with my scallop oval nestabiliy.

The dp is from the same paper stack from DCWV called Tinted Rose, pixie pink cardstock from SU, snowflake border cut out with my Martha Stewart punch around the edge snowflake punch and snowflakes cut out with my Martha Stewart collectable snowflake punch.  The smaller purple snowflakes were from the snowflakes cut out from the border punch.  Sentiment is LOTV mounted onto a nestability scallop circle, ribbon from stash and adhesive gems from Papermania.
