I coloured her with copic and papers Bo Bunny again also the little pink trinket is Bo Bunny, the other embelishments are from Jolee's Boutique by EK Success and are 3 dimensional stick on butterflys, cogs and flowers with added bling, finishing with pearls and a rose charm in metal.

So onto my card for today and so excited as Catch The Bug has a new release out and this week Jodie gave us a pig awe so cute too.


I coloured him with Copic, 3 shades of pale pink, never coloured a pig before lol, I kept the card quiet plain as I wanted the pig to show up and just added corners and pearls from my stash.

Valentine Vinatge Feel This Week

Hi Everyone
Today I have some things to show you I made for the craft fair, what I hear you say NO card, card will be later, I'll keep you in suspense till then lol.

OK so the first one is a box I altered, it was just basic white when I started which has been distressed with Victorian Velvet ink then I put my heat gun on it to give a bubble effect.

I decorated the outside with flowers from W/O metal flowers, pins, pearls, ribbon, lace and bling. The flowers were all sprayed with shimmer mist to make them sparkle.

Tip here!! spray the flowers before you attatch lol as the glass is hard to clean afterwards duh silly billy I am lol.



The inside I lined with Bo Bunny paper and I stuck folded lace to the top and bottom .



The center piece is a knitted heart which I glued flowers and dimanti bling to, sorry it hard to take a picture of this because of the glare.


The metal flowers in the corners are from a necklace I got from Claire in the sale and took apart and bent into the shape I wanted.


Above the heart I added dimanti bling and pins and pearls.

I made 6 different ones but all in the love theme, I shall show you the rest later in the month.

The second piece is another heart I made


To begin I painted two hearts  white then sanded and painted again, I covered them in paper from K and Co and sanded all the edges to give a distressing look then glued the hearts together using a glue gun.

 I decorated with cream lace which has ribbon threaded through it, pearls, bling, pins more dimanti bling  and flowers from W/O.

I still have more projects to show you as I made candles, more hearts and even more box's, 6 of each in total and some still in the making.

I had to put an order in for more flowers as these projects I did took nearly all of my stash agg I hate running out.

I would love to enter the following challenges if they are accepted.

Wild Orchid - Love Is

Passionately Artistic - Love

Cuttlebug - Sweet Heart


Thank you popping in to see me and I hope I inspired you to make something different this week.

ABC Over At Catch The Bug

Hi Everyone and today it's my turn over at Catch The Bug to show you my creation for ABC ( Anything But A Card ) I made this Vintage heart which is from a set  I made for the craft fair, all different by the way and I shall be showing you the rest later in the week.


To begin I painted two hearts and square piece of wood white then sanded and painted again, I covered them in paper and sanded all the edges to give a distressing look then glued the hearts together using a glue gun.

I used the image from the Bugaboo store called Love Blocks - Day after Forever I change the colour of this in word to match my heart, I have also added the image in black and white so you can see it better. I used modpog to adhere the image to the wood block.



I stamped my Love sentiment onto the hearts then decorated with lace, pearls and W/O flowers, I found the big heart in my craft shop here which was ideal and just what I was looking for.

I finished with dimanty which I found down the souk here, love this and must go and get some more and finally I glued the wood block to the hearts. Oh I forgot to say before I decorated I spritzed everything with glimmer mist to make it shine, I am so pleased the way it turned out.

My hearts have also gone to the shop to be sold and I am so lucky as I have got some orders for this one already, yahoo but first I am making one for DH but without the flowers as he's not a flower person lol.

I hope you like my creation as much as I do.
