Crepe flowers

It's still been quite warm here today, not as sunny as yesterday, I wish I was sitting on the beach in Biarritz :)
I love those crepe paper flowers that i've seen on different blogs so i went and bought a few different crepe colours.
I used the nestablilities scalloped circle to cut the shapes with, these all have 10 layers.
The turquoise flower I sprayed with glimmer mist, it doesn't really show up in the photo, it gives it a slight shimmer.

The pink one i dipped it into my distress inkpad

and this one i have added a little bit of extra sparkles - stickles in star dust.

I will definitely be making some more.

Don't forget to add your name to the post below for the Freebie Friday draw.

Hot, Hot, Hot

Hasn't it been a gorgeous weekend, the weather has been glorious, my sister had a bbq yesterday with lots of yummy food and we have had one today. I love bbq season.
I have always found photographing ribbons to be a real pain, i've never been able to show them off to their full potential, i've had another play around today, what do you think?
This little lot is called Berrylicious

Full of gorgeous ribbons in shades of rich plums, purples, lilacs, this is this weeks Friday freebie which is know is a little late. If you would like to win this weeks freebie, just leave a comment on this post.

As there were only a couple of entrants last week I put the 4 people who commented from 2 posts into a basket and my DS picked......

Kim out of the basket.

Well done Kim, if you can let me have your snail mail address i will post them off to you.

Have a good evening.

Can you believe that i have blogged 4 days in a row!!
It's been quite nice here today, when the sun shines it's quite warm.
I've managed another card today, i'm afraid its pink and green again, I have used pink so much that I have run out of RV10 again, so have just ordered another one, obviously a few more copics jumped into my basket :), they are like Magnolias very addictive!!
Have you spotted the little bit of recycling that i have used :), it's the packaging from the Prima Say it in Pearls pack, it's very pretty it has butterflies over it :)

ribbon, crystals, roses

Tomorrow will see the beginning of Freebie Friday, every Friday there will be a give away, check back tomorrow to see what it is :)

Have a good evening.

I'm a little behind with this sketch, it was for 28th April challenge over on Truly Scrumptious the tag slides out to reveal a birthday message.
I found these papers at the back of a drawer, this has to be one of my all time favourite 6 x 6 paper pads - BG - Scarlet's Letter.

Have you seen these gorgeous sparkling Crystal drops, they look fab on your cards, they come in lots of different colours.

The sun is shining and the sky is blue, let's hope it stays like it for the rest of the day. I have had this stamp for ages and this is the first time i have coloured her, she is another sweetie.
I have used stickles on the rose and on Tilda's wings to give them a little bit of sparkle :)
Have a good day :)

I haven't coloured this Tilda for ages, i've made this card for a challenge and now i can't remember which challenge it was for :) I love thsi colour combination.
It's rather grey and dull here today, lets hope it cheers up for the rest of the week.
