Under The Weather?

Good Hump Day to you all.

Imagine this - I made a card and
it isn't for a Challenge!  LOL LOL

I made this card with a stamp

She is called *Sunny Bathing Tilda* #245
and can be found at DIANA'S STORE.

I believe I told you before if
there is rain in the image I buy it :o)
I LOVE the rain.
* Actually found out this isn't the
stamp I thought it was. This isn't 
rain, it is water from swimmy.*
Sorry for my mistake.

I felt like making a smaller card
this time so this one is 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".
I can't believe how many embellishments
I got onto this small card!
My card stock is from SU.
My DP from Nit Wits.

Both the die Tilda is on and the
small outside sentiment one are from SU.
The shabby fence, clouds and heart dies are
The larger sentiment one is from
I have used SHABBY BLUE Fran-tage
and Flowers from my stash.
Both sentiments were computer
generated by me.

I was thinking how getting
sick in the summer is a real 
bummer. Seems it takes us
forever to get over what ever we have.
So I thought of a get well card.

Here are some more pictures:

The inside:

Hope you like this one.

I buy all my images and so many
other things from DIANA.

stamps, dies, paper and so much more!

My Teddy Bear

Hi Peeps!

Today is 'W'ednesday over at

 I have used Wilde Rose Studio
for my card.
Meet:  'Emily with Ted'.

I couldn't resist getting this image,
as my best friend for absolute YEARS
was my Teddy Bear :o)

I also used beautiful Design Paper
from Wilde Rose.
This delightful paper with ribbons
and little birds is called:
Annabelle's Meadow Pack.

You can buy the stamp and 
the paper at * DIANA'S STORE*

The blue and white Gingham Ribbon
is from my stash, as are the
Bella Baubles.
This was the very first
doily I bought :o)

Here is a look at the whole front
of my card:

My plans are to write 
'You Are My Best Friend'
on the inside.

Here are a couple of pics a bit closer:

I coloured 'Ted' then used my
Copic Colourless blender
and laid it over places to 
make the fir look softer.

Happy Birthday!

Hi Friends!

I hope everyone is doing well?
Some of you must be buying
school supplies by now.
As usual the summer has
flown by.

Challenge Blog
for TEAM A.
Our Challenge is to use LACE.
I ordered some lace from LOTV
and these two are my very favourites.

I have used #3069 FORGET ME NOT TILDA
from the Special Moments Collection this summer.

I have used 3 inks. 
Momento Tuxedo Black, Momento Rich Cocoa,
and Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Tattered Rose.

I have been cleaning out my craft room
'once again!' and dug up some very
old Design paper from my days of selling
'Close To My Heart'.
Cardstock is SU Whisper White.
I have also used two Grunge
stamps from LOTV.
I have used Stickles
on the inside as well as Golden
Spellbinder Dies.
All papers on the outside have been
distressed with Tattered Rose.
And you can see how many pearls
and rhinestones I have used! 

Here is my Birthday Tilda:

I feel like I may have put too much
on this card, but sure hope not!

Here is Tilda alone:

A close up:

Can you see both of the Grunge
Stamps I used. Maybe the 'Post card' 
one is hiding too much behind Tilda?

I have a couple of pictures of the lace.
I hope you can see the sparkle on it.
One is a very soft pink with rhinestones,
the other is a wide white lace

I have two more of
the inside.

**There is another wonderful 
Collection in Diana's Store,
called Sea Breeze**
If you haven't looked at it
yet, you must run over and do so.
I think some of the CUTEST
stamps are in this Collection.

TWO reminders for you:

**Don't forget to leave a comment on
