Tilda With A Big Bouquet

Hi dear blogging friends, hope you are all well.
This will be my last post for a couple of weeks.  We are taking a break at our retreat in please don't think I'm ignoring you.  I will be back by November.
Here is my first ever Tilda please be gentle with me, as I know there are some wonderful Tilda experts out there, and my colouring doesn't compare!!  But I saw this new image and I just couldn't resist it...
I coloured with ProMarkers and added some textured glitter snow to the fur around her hat and coat. I used three layers of Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Two, and embossed the bottom layer. I finished off with a poinsettia die to which I added some gold stamen and diamond sparkles.
I'll visit you all when I get back...if I get the chance, I will try and visit you while we're away.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges...
Thanks for stopping by!
Take care!
Love, Sasha xx

White on White Christmas

Hello everyone!  Hope you are all well and looking forward to a great weekend!
First of all...I would like to welcome my newest followers.
I've been busy making personalised commissions all week, but I needed a break as they are all A4 size, and I find them hard to work with.
Today I have two easy white on white Christmas cards which I made last week.
My first one was created with a Sizzix embossing folder, Spellbinders and Magnolia dies...
I used Glamour Dust to glitter my poinsettia and added gold stamen.  I also went over the embossing with a glue pen and Glamour Dust. My card is quite sparkly, but due to the lack of sunlight, it doesn't show up too well.
My second card was also created with Spellbinder and Magnolia dies.  This time I used white pearl card throughout, and added pearl stamen to my Poinsettia. I stamped Noel with a Waltzing Mouse stamp from the 'Say It Loud Winter Holiday' collection. I then embossed with gold EP. To finish I added three pearls.
I would like to enter my second card into the Waltzingmouse Challenge #117

Thank for Stopping by

Pretty Little Ribbon Shop Challenge - Autumn Colours

(Please Scroll Down For My Flourishes Challenge Post!)

Good morning lovely bloggers!  It's the first Monday of the month and time for another challenge at the  Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.  This month Jane is our hostess, and she has asked us to create something using autumn colours.
I used my Cameo to cut my base card shape and layers. I ran my base card through an eight inch square embossing folder. The second layer was coloured with Spiced Marmalade distress ink, third layer was embossed, and top layer was coloured with Mustard Seed distress ink.
I stamped Happy Birthday with an Anita's stamp I have had for years.
For my autumn spray, I made three ribbon flowers using Antique Gold sheer ruffle edge ribbon from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop. I added some gold stamen to the centres. You can find instructions on how I made the flowers here. The foliage was cut with the Tim Holtz Autumn Gatherings decorative strip die. I coloured all the elements with distress inks.
Why not join in with our challenge for the chance to win something pretty. 
Please visit the blog...and see the beautiful cards and projects my team mates have created for your inspiration.

I am entering my card into the Color Throwdown Challenge #211

Thank you for stopping by!
