The new stamps from Funky Kits called "Sweet Ebony" designed by Elisabeth Bell.
I decided to go for the kit as I couldn't decide on just a few. They are all so sweet, you can't see them to the full effect here but I'll be making cards with them real soon.

Ok so this week for the Cute Card Thursday challenge blog we were to follow the fabulous sketch by Katharina. Who does some stunning work you should check out her amazing blog.
Thanks Katharina it was a lovely sketch to follow.
Here is my card. I kept it quite simple this week as time was short. I used a Hanglar image that Monika had sent me. Thanks Monika :0). I coloured it in with prismas and zest it. I then cut out some scallops using my cricut to make a background for the image. All papers and embellies are from a SU simply scrappin set called "Round Up".
Papers, CS and embellies:- Stampin Up simply scrappin - Round Up

show some beads on your creation either beads on a ribbon or string or just
a beaded embellishments
For my card I've used Cherry Arte papers. All stamps are by Magnolia and have been coloured in with prismas and zest it. For the "For you!" I have used my Cricut machine. I've used beads in the middle of the flowers, on Tilda's bow, smock top and her pockets and I also added three beads each down the sides of the card. The little flowers on the fence are tiny buttons.
All you have to do is leave a comment with details of your blog under the challenge on the blog.

I decided on this Bella image, what could be better? I've coloured her in with prismas and zest it. I've used a Cherry Arte paper for the background with some zoomz to accentuate the flowers. The ribbon down the left hand side is tied to a bow to hold the little "happy travels" charm. To finish off I added some die cut swirls with small diamond and gold peel off dots.
This week on the CCT blog you could win a fabby Paris Tilda stamp. All you have to do is make your card leave us a comment on the CCT blog with your link to your card.
Why not go over to the blog and get some inspiration from the wonderful work done by the DT members?

Here we are again with glorious sunshine in the UK and the countryside
Glorious Green!So that's our theme for this week's ATCs and the
Design Team have come up with some beautiful ATCs for your inspiration.
For my ATC this week I started by colouring the blank ATC to make grass and the sky with chalk inks. I cut out some cloud images and used them as a stencil to ink around. Tilda's dress , trousers and boots were paper pieced and all the other images were coloured in with prismas and zest it. Her wings and the flowers were given a little bit of diamond stickles to make them sparkle. Stamps:- Magnolia
To get all the details of this week's challenge and see all the lovely DT work you can go here
Looking forward to seeing your "Glorious Green" ATCs. :0)

This one is from Deb, thank you Deb it's really pretty.
This one is from Jo, thank you Jo I love the colours and the little pearly buttons.
It's time for a bit of black and white theme, ideally no other colours to be
used on you work.
(but if you are struggling with this then your magnolia
image ( or 1 of if using more than 1 )may have 1 more colour of your choice.
For this week's challenge I have done a set of 3 ATCs. I used mostly black and white but used flesh for their faces and hands. All the papers used are just little pieces I had left over in my stash box.
You can see all the other DT work on the blog and find details of how to join in. The Tilda & Co blog is here

Happy Birthday Elliott!!! :0)
He had a bit of an accident yesterday as well. He was jumping over a wall and got his foot caught and ended up with a deep gouge in his leg, so he had the added bonus of not going to school today. He hobbled around instead and played his new PS3 game. Great birthday according to him!!

Unfortunately the button on Katharina's card got halved, over zealous postman I think!! How pretty are they both, gorgeous. Katharina also sent me some High Hopes images too, I can't wait to use them. It won't be today though as we are out all day for my birthday. Thank you very much girls. :0)

This is how it arrived in the envelope, flat packed.
And when I pulled the flap down this is how it looks. Brill isn't it?
