One Stitch At A Time

Another nightmare of a week with blogger :-( I do hope it sorts out soon - I get so lost when I cannot play on my blog and I know i am not alone.
This week the theme over at One Stitch At A Time is 4th of July or Picnics. We have 2 lovely sponsers this week.

Lili of the Valley is a UK Company which has a simply gorgeous range of unique un-mounted rubber stamps.

There are over 150 adorable images to choose from including the sweetest girls and boys, fabulous wedding and baby designs and of course an amazing array of Christmas cuties! http://www.liliofthevalley.co.uk/ is also packed with hints, tips, tutorials and the LOTV Design Team run a fantastic LOTV Challenge Blog and Inspirations Blog, so you’ll never be stuck for ideas on what to make with these really cute images





And the next prize is Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps Collab



For my card this week I have used the lovely image 'Tiny Bubbles' by Stitchy Stamps and the wonderful Photo card from Toucan Scraps (its is part of the collab above), I just love the colours on the photo card.
I have coloured Tiny bubbles with promarkers and Glamour dust on the wings, Lots of timy blue gems around the image.

My daughter is racing on 11th June so I would like to say 'Good Luck Katie' she normally walks it but this year has been training hard as she hopes to do a half marathon next year - me.... well I cant run for a bus!
I have used the lovely image Think Pink Lara from Digital Delights , the sentiment is also from there. Coloured with promarkers . The DP is papermania capsule collection - red hot , the flowers are also papermania with craftwork cards candi in the middle. The ribbon from crafty ribbons and the pink pearls from make it sparkle. The stickles on Lara's socks are Glam Pink I have also dottet them on her flowers but they dont show too well. A splodge of glossy accents on her nose. The heart pin and small gems are from stash.

Love these little fella's, The one playing the drums is Jerry kisses Drummer and the other is Ethan Rockstar both from Pollycraft.
I have used promarkers to colour them . And a first for me I have used various peel offs . Never really been a lover of them before but after seeing many stunning cards of late using them thought I would give it a go and am rather glad I did. The photo really does the card no justice as I have used lovely sparkling DP Paper the alphabet stack but the photo just wont make it sparkle. I have used glamour dust on the front star of the drum and Black diamond stickles on the drumstick (something I had brought ages ago and knew I would use it one day). The font used is Jokerman.
