LiLi is a nickname for our youngest daughter MarLeigha. We truly hope that you love our stamps just as much as we have loved designing them.
  I am a stay at home mommy and wife to a very loving and supportive man.  Without the support of my family and friends, my dream would not have been possible.  This has been a long time coming and finally…I am ADRIFT on a DREAM!

Good Morning bloggers,
It is the 1st of July so it means a new challenge has gone live over at Just For Fun and as of this month we are now an ANYTHING GOES challenge blog. We want to see lots and lots of you playing along as now there isnt really any reason not too Anything Goes is a great theme as it encorporates lots of different styles and themes.
Pop on over and check out the rest of the DT creations this month.

I had originally made something else for this challenge but my internet is p-laying up and I was unable to get my pictures uploaded so last minute I made a new card and uploaded it via my phone.
Here is what I made

I have used the new Crafters Companion Bebunni range. I have printed off one of the card companions and mat and layered it onto some silver card and then a blue card blank. I have added some liquid pearls to give the snow drops some definition. I love this little guy and I just know my Christmas cards this year will feature him lots.

Thanks for popping by and I hope to see you over on the challenge blog

Charisma Cardz - Anything but a card challenge

Afternoon Blogland,
I am here today to share with you a project I have made for the Charisma Cardz challenge that went live on Thursday 26th. This fortnight we want to see other types of crafts - so Anything but a card, as we want to see what else you lovely bloggers can do.
As usual there is some fab prizes up for grabs

Prize one

One lucky winner will receive 4 stamps or 1 stamp set.

Prize Two

Kenny K's is a fab online digi shop
 with fun upbeat digi's for all your crafting needs!

I have created a gift for my daughter's teacher for the end of term.

I cut a heart shape from some very thick corrigated card to make a heart shaped wreath.
I then set about creating a load of rosettes in all different sizes and patterned papers, but tried to keep them all to similiar colour tones.

I then went on to create a smaller heart wreath which I then printed out the sentiment for the centre. I have also decorated this with more rosettes to match the large heart. I also cut up strips of pink paper and covered the entire heart wreath so that it hid the corrigated card

Next I created a even smaller heart wreath covered this in the same way as above and added the teachers name via a printout. I found the small 'teaching is a work of heart' image sentiment on google and thought it was perfect to tie all my hearts together

Here is the finished project

I am really pleased with how this turned out and have made a seconded one for the teaching assisstant also. This was great fun to make and I think I may have to make some as gifts as I think the look fab and would make a lovely wall hanging in anyones home.
