A Sweet Thankyou

Hi everyone I finally have something to share but first I wanted to thankyou all for your wonderful and loving comments about my partner being a bit poorly it was so nice to get so many well wishes from you all so thankyou so much. Now onto this little card I made I have used this adorable image from Sweetpea Stamps and this one is called'Love Is Gone' and she has been a little neglected so I thought I had better use her in fact she has been coloured for over a week but i was a little busy to make her into a card.I think she has got to be one of my faves.I have coloured her with promarkers and added a little glitter too,the embossed panels have been inked with Spun sugar distress ink and the folder is D'vine swirls from cuttlebug I them finished with a greeting which was heat embossed with white powder and I have added some diecut flowers using heartfelt creations posy dies topped with pearls. I hope you like it and you are all having a good day. For anyone who likes candy I have a little giveaway so please scroll done to enter or click on the sweetpea image on the right of my sidebar at the very top. I would like to enter this card into the following challenges: Allsorts-For a special lady CES-Die cut crazy Anything goes-Make your own ebellies CYDA-For a special lady/mum Paperplay-distressing Crafty purple frog-Going green The stamp man-Anything Tim(distress inks) Thanks for stopping by much love Lorraine xx

Rob's Fault I Have Been A Bad Blogger

Hi everyone I just wanted to apologise to you all for being missing the thing is my other half has had 2 operations on his delicates bless him and it also looks as if there is an infection too its been a nightmare its so difficult to get anything done while I am looking after him as he is in heaps of pain and has severe swelling too.I am hoping to have a little time to myself tomorrow but only if he decides to have a little sleep in the afternoon(he will if its down to me)lol.
He can't even walk right now so i get to do the dog walking duties too(wheres that sergeon I am so going to kill him) only joking the things we do for our families but i don't mind really.
Anyway I just wanted to explain the reasons behind my terrible blogging and crafting or should I say lack of crafting. I have some images I have coloured so hopefully I will get time to make something.
I hope you have had a great weekend and that you are all well.

Sweet Stampin DT-Cute Bookmark

Hello everyone as promised I am back with my project for this weeks
Sweet Stampin Challenge and this week our theme is Slugs,Snails and Puppy Dogs Tails.
Our sponsor this week is the amazing Whimsy Stamps.
I decided to make a little corner bookmark this week using this little cutie he is called Biscuit and is from the popcorn bear kids collection and what I love about this set is that the tag on his bone is clear and there are 3 different mini sentiments to choose from to stamp into the tag and I have chosen'For my friend'.
I have coloured my image with promarkers,the paper is from Bo Bunny and to add a bit of sparkle I have added some star shaped gems and used a Tea Dye distress ink for the edges.I have used a Martha Stewart punch on the bottom but I am sorry but I can't remember what it is called.I have also used circle and scallop circle nestie dies.

I would like to thank everyone for entering last weeks Movie challenge and hope you will be able to join in with this weeks challenge too I look forward to seeing all of your gorgeous makes.

Thinking Of You Under The Weather

Hello everyone I just wanted to share this little card with you that I made.
The cute stamp is from Motivet and what I love about it is if you look closely the mouse is wringing out his tail bless him. I have coloured my image using promarkers and although its difficult to see i have glazed the rain drops with glossy accents and the sentiment has also been glazed all over. I have used a martha stewart punch down the side and attashed a little ribbon and glued on a cute gemstone.I have also added very small pearls in 2 of the corners and edged my paper with some diamond stickles too.
I have had a quiet weekend and not done very much but the relaxation has been so lovely.
I hope you have all had a good weekend,now lets see what challenges this one will fit into here goes:

Sarah Hurley-Four legged friends
Papertake weekly-Anything goes
The crafty pad-Use a ribbon
Simon says Stamp-Recipe( my 3 embellies are pearls,gem,ribbon)
Wild Orchid crafts-Anything goes
Charisma-Four legged friends
I hope you have a great start to the week and I hope to see you all soon cyber style of course
