LOTV challenge - A Thankyou

Hi crafty bloggers

I have made a pretty card using this gorgeous LOTV stamp and sentiment . I have made this for A Thank you challenge for LOTV no 109.

she was so much fun to colour . I used craft card for the base and layered with Dovecraft papers and this gorgeous Doily die where I distressed the edge. This tag was made from a chipboard piece and I twisted tiny little ribbons tied with thread.

 I made these flowers by cutting strips of material where I have frayed the edges and tacked and sewed . I also love using lace too for this effect with a pebble glued to the centre.

Had to make more lol !

And on the inside I put a beautiful opal in the centre  :D

Here is the inside with the friendship recipe  stamp and brown button with twine bow.

I am in a wee rush to get to work so no recipe today I am a naughty crafter lol
 Hope you are all having a great crafty week . Hope to catch up on my favourite blogs later too. Bye  Kitty :D xxxx

Hello Crafty Bloggers

I have been having fun recycling this week . I used a Brita Filter Box which we buy for our water box in our fridge.

I have picked 2 of my favourite Magnolia stamps and decided to make this a box for storing all my precious Magnolia stamps. I have used white crackle paint and my new patterned papers from Teddybo ! They are so pretty !

I have made so many pretty layers with my Martha Stewart deep edged punch , flowersoft and sheer organza ribbon.

I have added all my favourite embellishments to my box ,glimmer misted roses,Magnolia doo hickey flowers, lace and charm. I coloured her with prismacolor pencils I love the pink and grey combination. 

It looks great with my stamps in it ! I had to put another gorgeous Tilda in the inside too lol.

This is the side love this raspberry colour . Just a quick post sorry no recepie today as it's my birthday and I am off out to my wonderful mums! I am one away from the big 40 .

Foto Friday

Hi Crafty bloggers

I thought I would try most weeks to join in Foto Friday with Lori Boyd. It's the perfect opportunity to snap a picture from my wee world and share it with you all. My first photo has to be the best pet in the whole world. Introducing Mr Kiefe . It is a Norwegian name as he is a Norwegian Forrest cat . My mum keeps calling him Keith lol my fella hates when she does that !!

I think he is more like Lord Kiefe and our house is a 5 star hotel as he is in and out all day ! Loves cuddles under the duvet and hiding on top of the fridge freezer. He meows when our dog walks past him as if to say " Eeeeeew Canine ! " lol, all the kids love him and knock our door to see if he is coming out to play !  He is just like a big cuddly teddy bear. Love him too bits !!

Hope your all having a great start to the weekend !

Crafty Hugs Kitty & Mr (Lord) Kiefe xx

Good morning Crafty Bloggers

I researched monochromatic and wow lots of different definitions, really interesting. I have chosen greys, cream and white for my crafty creation.

I think she is timeless ! I have added stardust stickles to the edges of her wings !

Picture complete with crumb oops lol ! I added some glossy accents to the bigger bubbles too.

I made this flower with feathers , lace and a large cubic zirconia. I have also added these beautiful glass gems hanging from two tiny tabs of lace .

I have added this crisp double satin bow with black rose against the fringing and and topped with white pom pom and pearl and antique jewel baubles.

I made another super flower with black seam binding which I frayed, the textures are so lovely when sewn together and a cream rose for the centre. I made my own DPapers by firstly adding squares of white crackle paint to the first layer and then the next with with impressabilities die and script folder which I edged with distressing ink black soot !. I have added half pearls for more luxury lol !

I really enjoyed making this and I am pleased with my first attempt at monochromatic ! I would like to enter this into the TOMIC - challenge 11 - Monochromatic.

Teddybo Challenge 15 - Alter Something !!

Hi Crafty Bloggers

 Oh my, my week off has just flown in !!! Back on Saturday ;0( .  It has been great to craft more ! I could craft everyday. I was banned last night by my fella  though lol,  I was a complete rogue and did some colouring in he he he. We watched Avatar was so great loved it !. My daughter got her exam results this morning. Scary time ! she did so well but was disappointed in one which may determine her entry to university next year . So she has a back up plan that if she does not get into Glasgow she will go to Dundee. We would love to move further North so we said we would move there if it happens !!. Now enough of my woes and onto my passion !!! My daughter bought an A5 Filofax so she can be more organised this coming school year so I thought I would alter the index cards for her !. Her favourite colour is purple . She picked Teddybea_065.  His name is " Jolly the G_____Jiraffe " lol. She loves them as she is so tall and that was her nickname at school lol. She has giraffes everywhere in her room !!! So here he is .....

How cute  is he !! Great fun to colour ! I used a tiny bit of twine on his tail lol ! and a touch of orange sugar glitter on his funky hair !!  I suppose this is like a scrap booking project really. She picked a vintage style papers and some old maps !! I could not put too many embellishments on there so it would close properly. That was really hard for me lol ! I usually have flowers everywhere !

I have added chipboard , lace and die cuts .
When I ordered this image Teddybo sent me a wee present another Giraffe image to be released next week ! Don't you just love surprises ! This image is soooooooooooo cute !!

It's Teddybo & Jolly what do you think they are peeking at ? lol . This time I added a little polar white flowesoft to her pom poms to try it out as ordered it for Christmas cards. So I made another file page for her , just had too !!

I was watching create and craft TV this morning and they put some glue on a stem/wire and then coated the stem in flowersoft so I had a go great idea !! I also made the cute wee tag and added a gorgeous tree charm ! I figure these will motivate her to study hard so she can become a physicist and travel the world and maybe see a real Giraffe one day !!
