Fairytale Tilda

Good Morning lovely blogger friends.

I hope you are all well and enjoying your week. I want to apologise for my absence in blogland. I have a craft fair on Saturday and I am spending every minute I can preparing for it. Hopefully by Friday evening I will be organised and able to visit your wonderful blogs.
Today sees the start of a new challenge at Diva's by Design. The theme this week is vintage with lace and we are being sponsored by Live and Love Crafts - I love this store. Please head over and join in this fab challenge - would be lovely to see your there,
I must apologise for the photo's. I don't know if I need to change my glasses, or camera,  but the photo's seem to be blurred.
I have used Magnolias adorable Fairytale Wishes.
A product list with suppliers will be at the bottom of this post.
I have coloured her with Distress Markers. Either she is blushing or I have gone a bit mad with the pink colour.
The cluster flowers in white and pink on the right side of the card are from out sponsor Live and Love Crafts as is the lace. The rest of the flowers are from WOC.
The Frantage on the butterflies is also from Live and Love Crafts.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.
Tilda's Town - Celebrate

See you on Friday evening hopefully. If I don't get to see you then I am probably in a panic and have still loads to do for the craft fair.
Love Sharon. Xxx

Baby Card.

Good evening lovely friends.
Sorry about the error I made earlier. I went to save my post and clicked publish instead, hence you would not be able to see anything. What a dope!!!
As I was going to say firstly in my previous post, a very warm welcome to my latest followers. I am thrilled you like it here and will look forward to your visits.
I have made a second baby card so that my friend has a choice of which card she would like when her daughter has her baby, which should be any day now.
I have used another of LOTV's adorable baby stamps Cosy Pram. I am trying so hard not to take advantage of LOTV's 48 hr sale - you can purchase 3 of their stamps for £10. So so tempting.
You will find a link to all the products used at the bottom of this post.

As is my usual colouring medium at the moment I have used Distress Markers. Love, love love them and would dearly love to go on a colouring course as I still could improve no end.

When I remember which manufacturer I purchased the border die from I will add it to my products list.

The large rose is from the Range but I cannot find a link to it.

A few close ups of the card.

I have added a touch of sparkle to the blanket and pram hood with Diamond Sparkles.
The pearl string is available from The Hobby House.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

Make it Monday - Anything goes
Wild Orchid Challenge - photo inspiration
The Hobby House - Ribbon (Hobby House String pearls)
Alphabet Challenge -  Y for young one - little one
Craftitude - Anything goes or Ribbons and Pearls
Hobbycutz - Use lots of layers

Craft-DeeBowz  - Anything Goes with handmade bow

I am going to have a lovely catch up with you lovely people whilst Russ watches the Everton match. To be truthful we are watching it in the pub and I have a lovely bottle of wine to accompany a steak. See you in a while blogging buddies - isn't Wi Fi a wonderful thing. Cheers!!! 

Big hugs
