The Crafty Pad GDT - Lace and Bows

Hope you are all having a fabulous weekend with plenty of sunshine. It is roasting hot here today so a stay in the shade day for me.

This week at The Crafty Pad we have a fabulous theme for you to follow so time to play again with some of your favourite embellishments

I have printed off the sentiment and Fairy Chloe on Daisies, available from The Crafty Pad Designs, and cut out with my nesties, coloured with copics and prisma pencils, glamour dusted her wings and added a wee bit of stickles to the flower centres. Papers are SU, lace ribbons and gems from my stash.

I have used the sketch, rotated, designed by Carly for Flutter By Wednesday. Carly's wee sister shares my birthday on May 31st along with my grandson Ryan who will be celebrating his 18th. Carly is celebrating her sister´s birthday with some blog candy so do check out her blog for full deets.

Lili of the Valley #97

Good morning folks, not a very nice morning here I´m afraid. We´ve had torrential rain, thunderstorms and lightening all through the night and it looks pretty bleak at the mo but never mind we do have a fabulous theme at Lili of the Valley to brighten our day!
This week we would like to see your projects using the theme of
Here Comes Summer
and the lovely Laila and Lisa have kindly donated a £10 voucher to spend in the Store but remember the main image on your creation must be a Lili of the Valley stamp for you to qualify to be in the draw for this fab prize.

I have selected Cricket from the latest release It´s a Boy Thing , coloured with my copics and prismas then cut out with my nesties. Papermania papers which I have had forever, Martha Stewart zig zag punch which has lain neglected for yonks and my all time favourite clear sentiments also from Lili of the Valley.

My grandson Josh loves to spend time in my craftroom colouring along with me and I think he has done pretty well considering he is only 9 years old. He has made this card for his parents anniversary bless him, mind you that is not until September!

Josh has inked up Lucky Cats and coloured with prisma pencils and chalks. Both his sentiment stamp and mine are from the Clear Stamps range from LOTV. Papers are K&Co, ribbon is SU and flowers from WOC.
