To the one I love

Yesterday I decided to get all romantic and made my lovely hubby a love coupon book.

I opened up the blank love coupon's that the ever so clever Colette made and added various offer's.  I then trimmed them, added a perforated strip so they can be ripped out of the book and stapled them together.
I printed out TEDDYBEA_ 020 and coloured her with prisma's and copic's.
I added a strip of knotted ribbon and some letter beads to spell out I love u.
Finally I mounted it onto a piece of red glitter paper.
I'm really pleased with how this has turned out and I hope you like it too.

Woo Hoo our very first D'Arcy's Diaries challenge!!

I am so excited as today we are launching our very first challenge over at D'Arcys Diaries!
Since joining the team a couple of weeks ago I have fell more in love with these images if that is at all possible.
I know others may tell you their images are a dream to colour but I've not always found it to be true. 
But ... these really are amazingly easy to colour and as you colour her 
you love her more and more. I love that as you colour that the image comes to life.
Here are the new images and for some inspiration pop over to the blog

So what's the theme of our first challenge I hear you ask?!?!

With a chance to win 5 images of your choice.

So today I have chosen to use DARCYSDIARIES_022

Isn't she wonderful!! She is coloured with copic's.
Papers are First Edition New Leaf
I have used my Martha Stewart deep edge punch 
but found it too deep so I trimmed a couple of loops off!
Ribbon is from my stash as is my card candi.

Time for a new challenge at Teddy Bo

Hiya guys and welcome to a brand new challenge over at Teddy Bo.
Today we have a fun challenge that the DT have loved.


You may choose one thing from each course, but don't be greedy, one thing only, you are not allowed seconds!
Starter - Green and Cream - blue and cream - Pink and cream
Main - Flowers - Butterflies - Buttons
Dessert - Lace - Ribbon - stitching (real or faux)
Coffee - Charm - tag - glitter

So basically you choose 1 option from each course, for example if you pick blue and cream as your colour combo then these must be the main colours of your papers, card, and embellishments (you can use any colours at all in your image). If you choose butterflies, then no flowers or buttons are allowed etc., etc. Hope it all make sense?
Let us know in your blog post which items you chose.

and of course the top prize is our usual

I haven't used one of the new images, not because I don't like them coz I LOVE them.

STARTER- Green & Cream
MAIN - Flowers
DESSERT - Ribbon
COFFEE - Glitter
 Se easy peasy lemon squeasy.

Did you notice that there's also some crafty goodies in the new release preview?
Yes the wonderful head bear has got you some crafty goodies in the shop.

My favourite cheery lynn flourish is just £7.50 !!
So why not nip over and see what she has on offer.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges - 
Sketch n stash - sketch followed - new stash is the sentiment, old is the flower die
