Inspirational Collage Challenge... Little Claire's Freedom Stamps

Hi there thanks for visiting my page!
Here's a card I've made for Live and Love Crafts - Inspirational Collage Challenge

I done quite a lot of DIY on this card! I made the Organza flower with sheets of organza cut into flowers, melted petals over a candle then layered up and added a flat back pearl. Made the Pearl trim from cotton thread and 6mm flat back pearls My mum sewed the ruffle trim using organza ribbon (she's the sewing bee :-P)

Lilac 75th Birthday Card

Hi there!
Next week is my Nans 75th Birthday and my Mum has asked me to make her a card with '75' in paper roses like I did for my LOTV 10th Birthday card Here (my first ever blog post!) And I won top 5 with it on LOTV's blog Here!
My Nan absolutely loves Lilac, every thing she buys us, cards and presents are always lilac! So the colour scheme went without saying! And couldn't have picked a better week to make it as The Ribbon Girls blog challenge this week is Lilac/Purple! And I do love The Ribbon Girl!
Here's the card I made:

I used: WOC Roses LOTV Promises Paper Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch and Doily Lace Punch Lilac Spot Ribbon from The Ribbon Girl Bowtique Vintage Lace Anita's Outline Stickers Purple Gems from Hobbycraft Lilac and silver card

It's very Lilac! She'll love it!
Have a fab day!

Happiness... Dandelion Fairy Card

Hello there!
I've not posted for a while as we've had no Internet for a whole week!! BT finally fixed the problem, phew! I've also had completely no reception on my mobile for 5 days so I really have been cut off from the world in my little dark room unable to even text my mum who cares for me! Good job I have a bell I press when I need her and have been writing little notes to pass to her as I'm unable to talk or tolerate and sounds or voices!
Anyways.. I needed a quick simple card for a friend who also has ME. I had just coloured this sweet fairy in and this weeks challenge on The Ribbon Girl is to add pearls so that's literally what I did!!

Stamp is from Lili of the Valley Coloured with Promarkers Added 6mm flat back pearls, 3mm crystal gems Pastel green polka dot ribbon Dovecraft Candyfloss Glitter glue Lucy Cromwell Glittered Sentiments 'Happiness'

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!
