So cute Miss Ava from Saturated Canary

Good evening to you all.   It's been the most beautiful early summer day here, hot, sunny and wonderful.  Unfortunately I was at work and missed most of it but  its a very balmy evening and it looks as if the weekend will continue to be sunny - so good.

We have had so many birds visit the garden this year.  It has been a real joy to see all the babies arriving on the feeders after all the hard work that the parent birds have done over the past few weeks.  We have them queueing up to use a tray my husband has put down as a bird bath and they are so cute.

On to my card for today.  The image is a Freebie from Saturated Canary - Ava and she is gorgeous.



List of Materials used to make this card :o)

I have made a pocket card using a Spellbinder shaped die the base is Core'dinations Cardstock.  The papers are from Kaisercraft and are Her Smile - Miss Nelly Collection and Fantasy Charlottes Dream Collection.  I have also used some Core'dination glitter paper for matting.

The lovely Ava image is coloured using Promarker and Flexmarker Pens.

The outer pocket has been decorated with 2 pieces of beautiful white lace and a sparkling crystal trim.  A button and some twine from my stash and I have made the paper roses using Her Smile Paper.  The Ribbon is May Arts and is from The Ribbon Girl.

The topper is decorated with matching ribbon tag, so that you can hang the topper.  Further buttons and twine.  Some pearl and crystal bling and lots of love.  The back of the topper has matching layers and a white top layer for recording a message.

Summer Flower Tilda

Happy Monday to Everyone.  Its a Public Holiday here and as usual the weather is not to good.  It's a lovely excuse for me to do more craft - not that I need an excuse. 

Today's card features the lovely Summer Flower Tilda Stamp.  I have used some Tilda Stamps in the past but recently the designs appear to have become much softer and much more cute.  So I thought I would buy some stamps and join in the fun.


This style of card is called a Cross Over Card but I would call it a Pocket Card.  There are lots of tutorial available for this card type.

List of Materials used for this card :o)

2 sheets quality 12 x 12 Cardstock, cut to size and edged with blue ink.

Wonderful Digital Papers from Bearly Mine Designs - Spring Delights, backing paper from my stash.

The image is Summer Flower Tilda, coloured mostly with Flexmarker pens and sprinkled with glitter.

Die cut butterfly panel.  Heart Dies from Cheery Lynn Designs.  Flower Die from Magnolia.  Edge punch from Martha Stewart.  Pink Glitter Butterflies from Kanban.

Rose from my stash.  Ribbon and pink pearl heart pins from The Ribbon Girl.  Gem Flourish Corners from my stash. 


I would like to enter this sweet little card into the following Challenges :o)
