Guest Design Team Member for Belles 'n' Whistles

Hiya folks, hope your all keeping well.  I was lucky enough to be choosen to be a GDTM for Belles 'n' Whistles and this weeks challenge is "Wing It".  You don't have to use an image with wings - just make sure you have wings somewhere on your creation AND remember it has to be an Elisabeth Bell image.

For this card I've used :-
Belles 'n Whistles image - Fairy Dance
Heart Nesties
Martha Stewart border punch
Computer generated sentiment
Wings cut using my Cricut

Thanks for popping by, apologies for not being around much lately.  I've had a bit of a swap around with my days at work and it's put me all out.  It's like a mad house at work because we have the examiner coming in on Wednesday to mark our A Level work, so we are busy putting up the exhibition  I already know my results.....just waiting for them to be confirmed, so hopefully Thursday I will know for definate and shall let you all know.....for now I'll just say I am over the moon and chuffed to lil bits....hehehhehehe!!!!

Birthday Tilda

Hiya crafty peeps, I can't believe it's been over a week since I last posted but it's not for the want of trying, I've had problems with my computer and Blogger plus hubby has changed our ISP so our internet has been off for a few hours today whilst my son and I tried to figure out how to set up our new ISP.....Then to top it all off I've spent three hours in casualty this afternoon/evening with my eldest daughter, got a phone call from school at lunchtime saying Georgia is in terrible pain could I pick her up.....oh gosh by the time I got there she was in agony, I'm thinking it's her appendix so drives straight to casualty, they took blood and water samples, give her a thorough check up and don't know what's wrong with her.  She's been dosed up on painkillers and Ibruprofen and is now snuggled up in bed with a hot water bottle......why do things always go wrong as soon as hubby goes away to!!

So onto todays cards, which I made over two weeks ago now but not had chance to post them.  I've coloured both Birthday Tilda with Copics.  Papers on the first card are MME, sentiment is Stampin Up.

Tilda with Balloon has been coloured with Copics and a sprinkling of Stickles
papers are DCWV and Stamping Up
Prima flowers
E-line Gems
Swirls cut on my Cricut.

These cards are for the following challenges:-
Paper Sundaes - Girly Girl
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Anything Goes
Cupcake Inspirations - Photo inspiration
Totally Gorjuss - Flower Power
Inspire Me Fridays - Anything Goes

Thanks for popping by my lil oasis and for all the lovely comments you kindly take the time to leave, they're much appreciated.

Having trouble uploading pics.....

Hiya folks, just to say that I am still here but Blogger is playing up and I can't upload any pics and haven't been able to all week. When I come onto the New Post page, it looks like the original version from when I first started blogging, it won't let me click on the upload photos section and I'm getting sooooo frustrated, if anyone has any suggestions of what to do I'd be so grateful. Thank you, luv 'n' crafty hugsxx vicki xx
