Furry Friends for D.O.C

Hi everyone,
It's been a while since I last blogged, the last Deep Ocean challenge to be precise, I've been bogged down with homework from my job just lately and it's severely cut down my crafting time - how frustrating! Hopefully though, I'm getting ahead with creations now, as I don't like working under pressure and I'm never as happy with my cards when I rush them.
Enough of my waffle, here's my card for Deep Ocean's new challenge....
'Our Furry Friends'

Go Kreate shaped card die
TH papers
Magnolia horse stamps, barbed wire fence background (coloured with DI's)
WOC/Magnolia flowers
Magnolia doohickey scalloped stitched lace border, swirl
ribbon, cheesecloth and gems from stash

Challenges I would like to enter:
Magnolia-licious - Bingo! (diagonal - bling, diecuts, ribbon)
Tildas Town - Favourite (Horseriding) holiday

Thanks so much for visiting my blog!
I'll be back on Sunday with my midway inspiration for Simply Magnolia

Love is all around @ Deep Ocean DT

Evening everyone,
today sees the start of a brand new challenge for us over at

'Love is all around'
and here's what I made:

I started with just the plain white heart which has a clip on the bottom string.

The clip has a tag featuring Tilda with heart arrows, coloured with DI's. I added aged silver frantage first around the image, on top of that I added shabby pink frantage. The heart text stamp around Tilda is from the BoBunny Love Letters clear stamp set. I used Spellbinders Labels two to cut around the image and the pink background card. SU spiral punch used down left side of both. DooHickeys used: cloud and wings. A bark heart from LLC and WOC flowers are the finishing touches.

A close up of Tilda shows the stickles used on her headband and the crackle accents on the hearts.

I used an SU heart cluster stamp for part of the edge of the white heart. More aged silver frantage for embossing the Love sentiment (again from the BoBunny set) and finished off with more WOC flowers, pink gems and pink tulle ribbon.

 Our fab sponsor this fortnight is the awesome Ribbon Girl

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today!

Challenges I would love to enter:
LLC - Hearts
Bunny Zoes - For the girls
Totally Tilda - Valentines
LHOSM - Love or hearts
Magnolialicious - Hearts and flowers
Tildas Town - Fussy and Fancy
Marvelous Magnolia - Die crazy
