I got some Cosmic Shimmer mists on Monday and decided to try them out on this challenge. You should see the colour of my hands, will have to wear rubber gloves next time me thinks LOL! I used 4 colours Golden Mint, Midnight blue, Golden fish and Mango blaze and they give a lovely shimmery effect.
The parcels are stamped using CC Occasions stamps and coloured with Whispers and the bee is an odd stamp I had from who knows where. The torn border I found in my bit box and if my memory serves me correct (thats a laugh!) I used a Diane Dorward stencil to emboss and colour it.
The ribbon is by Doodlebus design and the brads are from stash.

The tag itself is an odd piece from a sheet of card I printed using the new Crafters Companion Cute Summer Stories CD. The spotty paper is an odd piece I had lying around think it's craftwork cards. The cherub and cake images are CC stamps. Ribbon,brad and charm are from stash and sentiment & gems are peeloffs.
Craftroom still needs tidying as does everywhere else in the house, but I've decided I'm not in the mood - again!!
Love, Pat xx
The base card is Papermania and the papers are Papermania and Cardcraft Cards. The image is Penny Black coloured with Distress inks on Nestie labels. The flower is Flora Doodles from Joanna Sheen and all the other bits & bobs are from stash. I really like this colour combo as it is fresh and clean looking which I like.
I may be back later depending on how the "Tidying" goes.
Hugs, Pat xx

The base card is darkish blue pearl. The back layer I coloured with distress inks and stamped onto it with a leaf design stamp from a set I got sometime ago from the late Craft Central.The next layer is Basic Grey. I used a fancy doily from stash and cut two nesties. The stamped image is Lola with flowers coloured with distress inks. The ribbon and sentiment are from stash.
Well it's my Mums birthday today so we are off out for lunch. We are going to Amerton farm where they have a lovely garden centre, gift shop and playbarn (I think we'll give that a miss today LOL!). Oh and also a lovely bakers and gorgeous celebration cake shop which I always have to visit to admire the creations and get some yummy sweets that they sell. Sadly there is no craft shop Boo Hoo!
Have a good day, hugs, Pat xx

It's been a right miserable day here today weatherwise but at least I didn't feel so guilty spending all that time in the craft room. If it had been nice I would have had to finish staining the fence. I got some lawn treatment this morning that stops the grass growing so quickly and hopefully it will work. Goodness knows how it works but I live in hope, watch this space.
Sorry I haven't got anything more interesting to tell you today, hopefully I'll be back tomorrow to make up for it!
Love Pat xx

Now the card I made for the Colour Create challenge, which is to use Green and Blue with the option of paper piecing. I decided to combine this challenge with Wendy's sketch.
The base card is made from Bazzill Bling. The layers are blue bazzill, the circles and squares design is cut from Papermania cards and the gingham is from Crafters Companion's Cute Companions by Jayne Nestorenko. The cute little mouse is also from the Cute Companions stamps and I pieced the dress and present. The flower is mountboard triple embossed with cosmic shimmer embossing powders (sorry can't remember which colours as it was made some time ago). The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the ribbon and brad from stash.
Thank you for visiting and please come back again soon.

The base card is green bazzill bling. The patterned paper is Dovecraft retro flowers. The swirl is a sizzix die cut on Cuttlebug. The scalloped frame is cut on Cuttlebug using Nestie. The large flower is a chipboard blank, triple embossed using Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder with micro beads added, sorry can't remember which shades as I made it some time ago. The other flowers are punched with red stickles centres. The ribbon, lace, brad and sequins are from stash.
Tilda has been coloured with Whispers brush pens and Tombow blending pen and attached with foam pads. Unfortunately the colours I've used for Tilda aren't showing up too well on the picture which is a shame.
I am really pleased with this card but unfortunately the picture doesn't do it justice.
Well I have really enjoyed this challenge and can't wait for the next. There's some great inspiration from the DT so if you haven't checked it out yet don't delay, pop over and have a look.
Off to catch up on some blog hopping.
Thanks for stopping by,

Well yesterday Jessica and myself went to Mountain Ash Crafts to see Jayne Nestorenko and spend some money. It was lovely to see Jayne demonstrating as she has such a lovely way about her and everyone was enthralled at her work. Jessica took her card (see earlier post) that she had made and some chocolate mice which of course Jayne couldn't wait to eat. Jessica bought some fairy decoupage and designer papers plus some lovely ribbons (shares my ribbon passion obviously) and I got three Pink Gem stamps, one of which I've used on the Colour Create challenge which this week is Red,cream,chocolate, check out the yummy picture on the CC blog.
The card base is made from some embossed brown card from Crafters companion (they do some lovely card packs ) and I cut away the top right corner to show the Basic grey Boxer paper inside.The image is a Pink gem stamp Flowery Mimi coloured using Whispers brush pens, the edges softened with red using cut and dry and matted onto some basic grey paper. The brown and cream paper on the front is Papermania. The flower is a Flora Doodles with a punched out large and small flower layered on top. The red ribbon is from stash and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards. The little gems are just peeloffs.
Thank you for visiting me today I really appreciate it and if you leave a comment I'll be able to pop over and visit you.
Hugs, Pat xx
