Happy mothers day to all the lovely Mams out there :)  Hope you all get thoroughly spoiled.

I love the Elisabeth Bell Sugar Nellies, I really really do and they are still some of my very favourite stamps.  Can you believe this little beauty had never been inked up till now, and I unearthed a few more that were still in the packets unopened (and yes I have a duplicate or two seeing as I went and Bought them again off Ebay rofl).


The gorgeous lace was a gift from Lori, thank you lovely lady I love it xxx.  I am so glad you sent me two reels, one to use and one to stroke lol.  I threaded some thin organza ribbon (coloured with BG72 Copic to match the blues in the paper) through the broderie holes in the lace.


And the arty shot


I did a challenge trawl yesterday and found these that today’s card fits:
Delightful Challenges – flowers
Charizma Cardz – Bling
Stamp Scrap and Doodles – Glitz
Allsorts – Blooming Blossoms
CES Challenges - Children

Think that’s covered it all.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend, I am going to carry on bathing the dogs.  Sidney had his bath yesterday, poor little lad was so patient, it took over 2 hours to detangle him (and only a couple of yelps too).  He looks so much better now :)

This card will be on Ebay later today.

  17. Beautiful )

    I luv the older ones too, I like the newer ones, but I dunno, when you compare them with the first SN's, its as if they are missing something that you cant put your finger on.

    Can't mention the B word in here, we have 2 working collies, for them the B word means head for the hills and don't come home till dark. Shame really, our red & white boy looks utterly amazing when he's fresh dried and combed out.... and then he goes and rolls in the muck heap..

  18. Bev this is stunning.I adore this image.I love the colours you have used and the papers are gorgeous.
    I don`t know how you do it with all your dogs,bathing all of them,we had just one and she was a tinker to try and get dry,as for the brushing she used to keep biting the brush and just run around all excited.Yours must be so so good.
    Happy Mothers day Bev,enjoy your day.

  19. Wow, Bev this is stunning! Love the colorcombination and your coloring is awesome!!!
    hugs Yvonne

  20. Just beautiful and that lace is lush also like the butterfly charm.Enjoy your sunday.

  21. Teal and brown...gorgeous. Fabulous image..beuatiful colouring.Stunning card..
    Luv CHRISSYxx

  22. Hi Bev
    love your card, love the colour combo that you have used, I have this sweet image & have always (don't ask me why) coloured her in pink, but I'm going to (try) & colour her in the colours that you have used.
    Glad to hear the doggies bath's are getting done, we are babysitting our son's dog today, so my guess is after his walk he will have to have a bath (as he always seems to end up dirty when we look after him) lol.
