What's Shakin?

Evening all

I made this card the other day on a whim, nice break from Valentine's cards hehe :) Haven't done that for a while! I primarily made it to enter into the Kraftin Kimmie's Facebook Krafty Krop challenge.

I used the image called Fanny, apparently it's really old but I only got it for Christmas, so it's new to me :) I was a waitress in a 50s style diner for 6 or so years, not on rollerskates though as that would've been disastrous! But I have many fond memories of my time there, so this image just needed to be mine :) I paper-pieced her dress and hat.

Image - Kraftin Kimmie
Papers - Maja Design "Summer Crush"
Spellbinders rectangle die
La La Land heart banner
Ribbon and lace from Ribbon Girl
Coloured with Copics
I used Antique Linen Distress Ink and a sponge to colour the paper around the image.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
(I went for hearts)
(I really like kraft with anything really - kraft and pink are perfect together!)

Thanks for looking!

Crafty Friends Challenge DT card - Girly

Good evening

Today, we have the latest challenge starting over at Crafty Friends. The theme this fortnight is GIRLY. We're very lucky to have two wonderful sponsors this time round:


For my card, I used a GORGEOUS Angie's Cards and Digis image called Kitty in Flowers.
Isn't he cute? 

He's not too sure what to make of this, but he thinks he'd look dashing with a bowtie. 

So here's my card. I tried to go girly with no pink as a personal challenge, and I think I managed well enough :) I rarely use orange things at all, so this was a nice change for me. 
Image - Angie's Cards and Digis "Kitty in Flowers"
Nitwits papers
Lawn Fawn sun die
Memory Box flower border die
Ribbons, trim and gem from Ribbon Girl
Liquid Pearls, Stickles
Coloured with Copics

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
I love all bright colours, and I love orange - but don't use it half enough! Anything with white works for me though :)
Liquid Pearls feature on nearly all my cards!

Thanks for looking and do head over to Crafty Friends for a look at our wonderful DT's inspiration, and to enter our fun challenge :)

WoW Bear Valentine's Card

Afternoon everyone, 

Valentine's is fast approaching, so here's a card that I made :) I love the LOTV bears, they're so cute!

I made a white-on-white card with some read details, they stand out better when there's no colours cluttering the background I think :) 
Image - LOTV
Sentiment printed off by me
Embossilicious lattice and dot embossing folders
Cuttlebug swirl embossing folder
Spellbinders heart/scalloped heart dies
Ribbon, lace, twine, dewdrops and charm from Ribbon Girl
Stickles on the rose and patch
Coloured with copics

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Multi layer because I feel it adds more interest!

Thanks for looking :)
