Well hello dear blogging friends!!!!! How is your weekend going?? I hope fine. Well mine has been very creative lol I have a lot of things going on behind the scene but have a couple cards to show you today.  Thought it sounded more fun to play first then do chores lol

So for my first card I have one of the new Manga’s to show you from Sugar Nellie.  This cutie is Honey Bee !!! I so love these Manga images don’t  you?? Well they are available over at Funky Kits  now so make sure you check them out.

I have colored her with my copic’s and have used some papers from BG. I cut my image out with a spellbinder die and also used them to cut my sentiment out, which is  a new stamp from Lily Of The Valley.  I was so lucky to get one of my dear friends to pick these up for me at the show they had last week. I just couldn’t wait for them to come on the site lol  For those of you that didn’t get to the show like me. OMG wait till you see all these sentiments !! Oh they are to die for.

I used a couple of ribbons from my stash for the card and that is it for this one I wanted it to be pretty simple.


My second card for today is this adorable Lily Of The Valley image she is called Tea Party.  She has been colored with my copic’s and I used a spellbinder die to cut her out. Now the challenge over at Lily Of The Valley Challenge Blog this week is Punch It. So I have made a border with some punches and have made 3 rows kind of like a petticoat lace lol I used some pop dots to make each layer pop and then I used some ribbon from my stash for the bow. The flower is cut from a Marianne die and I have used some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and also punched the branch from the MS punch. The papers I have used here are from BG. I am also entering this into the challenge over at Color Create Challenge Blog where there theme is Pastels.

Now if you are still with me. I have some awesome news to share. I won Guest DT for the month of April over at Lily Of The Valley Challenge Blog !!!! OMG I was so excited ! I so love coloring these adorable images and so am so honored to be chosen to get to work with these fabulous girls this month. So hope to see all you over at the challenge blog this coming month.


Well you all have a wonderful weekend. I need to get to my chores and the dear grandson will be coming home tomorrow. He has been on spring break this last week so I have had a very quiet week lol Sending big hugs to you all (((((()))))))) and thanks so much for stopping bye.

  6. I love the Honey Manga - bees & greens are amongst my favourites & this is a joy - that central ribbon is inredible. Love how that floral paper is picked up with the fancy ribbon.
    Huge Congratulation on the LOTV Guest DT. I do like how you've picked out the colours in that backing paper for the tea set - so subtle & then the pink & aqua too.
