Dilly Bean Friday

 So glad its Friday !! This week at Dilly Beans we are adding metal to our projects.

 I have used one of the new images and covered the bunny and hat in flock.
Its not as easy as glitter but after a couple of coats, I was happy.

I love the little bunny charm- it has moving arms and legs too.

Sweet Pea Stampers Easel card

I also punched out some blossoms and added liquid pearls to the centres.

 Of course I also added glitter to her wings.

Happy Birthday Dex- (also 52 week challenge week 8)

Today is Hubby's Birthday .
I am rubbish at "boy" cards. I thought I would combine the week 8 sktech challenge with making his card.

Here is the sketch for the 52 week 8 challenge.

 My clever sister looked on my Amazon wish list and found these "JustRight" stamps there - to tell you the truth , I had forgotten all about it and these were a gorgeous surprise on my birthday last month.

 I stamped the leaves onto heavy water colour cartridge and the coloured them in with water colour penciles and paints.

 I added some stickles glitter glue along one edge of each leaf.

 I "dotted" a few colours of liquid pearls and die cut a spellbinder sentiment ribbon.

I hope he likes it , he is still at work so I shall present it to him later .

Craft Barn Quotes and Lyrics Challenge - No 3

 The words this time are "Strong" and or "Miss"
I chose "Miss" and have used some of the Lyrics from my Fav artist Darren Hayes

 Last week was the second anniversary of my sister passing away and it seemed very apt.
I have been grieving for SO long now it's just part of who I am. 24 yrs ago I went to my very first funeral aged 30 - lucky that I had not lost anyone so close before but it was the funeral of my three year old son. Since then , like most people my age , I have lost quite a few more dear family and friends.
My mum and dad and darling sister included. 
Please dont get me wrong , I am a happy and contented person and I value life so much ... Just sometimes...

 I used acyrilic paint for the background , along with ink splodges . It needed a heart so I used that gorgeous stampendous frantange embossing powder. I also went a little over the top with liquid pearls dots.

 The lyrics.

I also used a memory box stencil along the edge and a little glitter 
Hopefully the link below with take you to Darren Hayes's "miss you" you tube :)

Scapology February Card Challenge

 This month's theme is to celebrate a special girl friend or Mothers day.
I have made a Card for one of my work colleagues . She had a big birthday this week,
 I used a selection of dies to make this. The center piece is the left over bit from a large Memory box die - just too nice not to use AND it fits just perfectly into the center of the gold spellbinder frame.

 Everything is inked :)
The flowers are a digi stamp from Meljen . Coloured with copic pens.

 The name is cut from Memory box dies and then covered in stickles glitter glue.

Please pop to the MAIN SCRAPOLOGY BLOG to see the wonderful inspiration from the rest of the DT and details of how to enter and of course ... the prize!
