Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

Today I have an Alice in Wonderland themed card to show you and this one is my contribution to the Gingernap Creations Mad Hatter Day Blog Hop celebration.

The blog hop started on the 10th June – I’m late, I’m late for a very important date! But wait a minute – is that 10/6? As in the Mad Hatter’s hat ticket?

Well yes! Now you can see the reason for the Gingersnap Creations blog hop theme! If you hurry on over there you can join in the fun too and there are prizes – yummy Alice prizes!

My little Mad Hatter is from The Greeting Farm Digi-stamp and the Cosmo Cricket papers, Prima lace and chess charm are from Quixotic Paperie.

But I have more news – I’m blown away to have been Ginger Gemmed for my entry into the recent burgundy, ivory and black colour challenge. Thank you so much guys!

Talking of blog hops, Make The Day Special will be having a blog hop this Saturday (26th June) so another important date for your diaries 🙂

Don’t be late!

Tiddly Inks Meets Gingersnap Creations

Sunday make coming right up! Today I have a card that fits two challenges – well look at me with the two challenges and everything!

The image is from Christy Croll’s Gothic Cute range at Tiddly Inks and the challenge over at the the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog is all about the bling (see the bling bottom right hand corner LOL!). The colour inspiration is taken from this months Colour Challenge over at Gingersnap Creations.

SO what do you think of the photo? Do you think it is focus? Still trying to work out the new camera.

Oh and ice cream update…there is a bit of a dent in the tubs now – Tee hee!

Happy Sunday you all.

Cute Card Thursday May Guest DT Fourth Make

Hey Everyone, another card for you today and today it is my guest DT make for Cute Card Thursday which this week is all about:

No Designer Papers!

Fun one for me this week because like a lot of us I’m in love with my Designer Papers so it was fun to break the pattern (pardon the pun) and make my own papers for this challenge – hope you like them!

To make my backing paper I’ve used stamping, masking and a watercolour wash.

The image is from Stamping Bella and has been coloured with my favourite PrismaColor pencils with Sansodor blending so I thought I would enter the card into the Gingersnap Creations Spicy Supply Challenge which is ‘Pencils’.

The heart I used blending inks and stamping with {Ippity} stamps finished with some yummy lace ribbon.

Right that is all from me today.

Have a lovely day.
