Jingle Bells

Hi everyone
Happy Easter to you all, my children are super excited
about the Easter bunnie's visit during the night, but for now,
I'm thinking CHRISTMAS!
Over at Tickled Pink Stamp Challenges, they are having their
second Christmas challenge and the theme is
"Jingle Bells", so Ofcourse I have taken it quite literally
and instead of a card, I have made a cute Bell ornament for
my Christmas tree. I picked the bell up at an op shop (it's a
shame there weren't atleast two) and added some ribbon,
flowers, rhinestone brads, more bells, string, and some
beaded garland and pipecleaners and topped it ofwith the
truly gorgeous Lil Christmas Lad Luca, who you can find
HERE with all the rest of the Lil' Lolitas/Lads.

I am also entering this into Sparkles Forum Christmas Challenge 
#3 'Ribbons and Gems

Thanks for stopping by :o)

Tickled Pink Challenge #15

Hi everyone
It's the first day of school holidays over here in WA, and I
wanted to make a card...what was I thinking! It was so not
going to happen, well I finally got there, it didn't turn out
quite the way I wanted it to, but  I  thought I'd share anyway.
So today I have used the sketch from challenge 15 over at
Tickled Pink Stamp Challenges

and here is my card using "Lil lad Lestat", you can find him
and all the other Lil Lads and Lolitas over at Tickled Pink
Stamps HERE

I have coloured using Derwent Artist pencils.

Love letters

Hi all,
Today I have made for Tickled Pink Stamps Challenges
#13, and this week the challenge is 'Blinging it up'
I have teamed up 'Lil Birthday Luca' (he was a recent freebie
for answering a question on Tickled Pink's Facebook page
Thanks Kellie :oD) with 'Lil fashionette - 30s Lylah' to
create a long lasting Love story, hope you like it...

for 'Bling', I have  added a ring, which I snagged from my
6 years old daughter's jewllery box (I'll have to buy her another
one now haha), pearl sprays, crystal hearts, a cute little kissing
couple charm that I picked up at Tickled Pink Stamps some time
ago, and there is also a little clear gemstone button at the
bottom of the floral arrangement. Hope that's enough bling :o)

The flowers and heart doily are also from Tickled Pink Stamps,
and I have added some cardboard, a crocheted doily, some
'Love letters', raffia and I have used Scrabble font.

Here is a close up of the lovely couple, coloured with 2B and 4B
graphic Pencils, to try and get that old photo look...

I am also entering this into Cute Card Thursday challenge 158
