'For a Special Lady' At Dream Valley

Hi again, I am back with my second dt card for today, this time its for Dream Valley and we are sponsored this week by the gorgeous, very talented lovely girlie that is Krista Smith of Saturated Canary. Our theme is 'For A Special Lady'

The prize is a generous $10 gift certificate to spend in her etsy shop, and as there are some lovely new releases to spend those pennies on!

Krista very generously gave each of the dt members an image of our choice, now I chose Dreads are Awesome, but when I went to print it off, guess what? NO INK!!!! so I had to use one of the (many!)one's that I already had printed off. So I used Rapunzel A princess instead. Oh boy did I have fun colouring her hair!!

Ribbons and pearls at Paper Sundaes

Afternoon everyone, I have 2 dt cards to share with you today. The first one is for Paper Sundaes. We are sponsored this week by Lili of the Valley who are giving offering a £10 gift voucher to our winner.

The theme this week is Ribbons And Pearls.
I have used the beautiful Fairies - Bouquet

Apple Blossom...

Hi lovelies, well what am I like, no posts for a week then 3 in a row! I think because I didn't make anything last weeks I have gone a bit mad this week. 
Thank you for all the lovely sweet comments about Alex not feeling well, he is better today because as I am typing this he is running around the lounge like a loony! I have left them watching Disney cars on DVD, so I think they are playing race cars. I have another fab pic to share with you of the 3 of them together. Meghan has figured out how to work the timer button on her fancy camera and I came across this pic the other day,

awwww don't they look angelic! 
yeah right!!!!
 who says the camera never lies!
 just notice they tight grip Meghan has on Maya! lol

Ok let me show you this card that I made just for fun,

I love this cutie patootie! she was a joy to colour, and as you can see I've gone back to my fav colour at the moment of peach. And i have used more of that gorgeous lush lace, I have another 2 metres on order from eBay as I love the vintage shabby chic look it gives. I am right into shabby chic at the mo, love it. I have another card to show you tomorrow, then that will be all till Sunday. I am not expecting to get much crafting done at the weekend as I will be helping hubby build my new craft room! yes that's right Im getting a craft room!!!! yaaaay

Paddling Tilda!

Good morning lovelies! how are you all? I am sorry I have been AWOL for a week, I haven't been feeling too great. I am not sure what I had, it was some sort of viral infection that gave me a constant sore head for 4 days, sneezing a lot and tickly throat. I could have slept for Scotland too. But I am feeling better today, but I think Alex may have picked it up too, hopefully it wont last long.

I found out this morning that I got top 5 over at Fashionista Challenge, there is a twist with this lovely challenge, the top 5 are picked by the dt, then YOU all get to vote for the peoples choice. Isnt that a fab idea, its a difficult choice though as the other girlies creations are gorgeous.
I also won a GDT spot for the challenge too, yaaay!

Before I show you my card, I wanted to remind everyone that Lovely hAnglar has become Lovely hAnglar and Sweet Magnolia, YES you can now enter your magnolia creations too. We have some fab prizes, so come on, join in the fun!!
