Less Is More Week #129 - Hand Made Flowers

Hello everyone!  Today I have a card that I made for someone who wanted yellow and blue flowers.  It's quite a while since I made a CAS card, and I noticed that the theme over at Less Is More this week is hand made flowers, and my card does have some of those on it. So without further a do here is my card...
I used a LOTV image and coloured with PM's. I cut my flowers and leaves from card stock and coloured them to match my image. I cut my image out with SB Grand Decorative Ovals One.
My photo is not as clear as I would have's due to the very bright sunshine! 
Thank you for stopping by
Love Sasha xx

Life's A Beach

Hello everyone! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend...and for those of you here in the UK who are experiencing this unbelievable heatwave!! I hope you are a bit cooler today.  It's very overcast here in West Yorkshire, and a welcome change from the sweltering 30 degrees yesterday!!
Today I have another quick collage card. Because of this heat, Ella is indoors most of the time and she has been a real minx this week. So no time for crafting again!!
Here is what I managed to put together for a friend who is going away for a month to visit relatives abroad...
I used papers and elements from the Tilda 'Seaside Life' collection. The entire collection is so fresh and beachy. My sentiment is from Pink Petticoat 'Beach Cottage' download collection. There are some pretty designs and you get a free sheet of 'Tiny Seashore Sentiments'. I layered everything onto one of the circle dies from SB Grand Decorative Circles One. I then placed that onto my base card.
I added glamour dust to her pretty bathing costume, and her wings. The pink pearl is from my stash.
Here are a couple of photos of our little minx before and after jumping into the spray of the hosepipe while I was watering the planters...

Thank you for stopping by
Enjoy the rest of your weekend
Love, Sasha xx

Roses Roses Everywhere

Hi everyone!  Hope you are all well, and a BIG warm welcome to my newest followers.
It's been quite hectic here over the past couple of weeks getting Ella settled in.  She can be a little minx at times, but she is sooo loveable, too.  I haven't had much time to craft, but I've been able to catch up with you all when I get some time to myself.
Today I got some free time to make a collage time for stamping, unfortunately...
My papers are all from the Tilda 'Country Escape' collection. (I just love roses, and especially ditsy prints). I also embossed some pale pink card to make my tails.
I added an assortment of pink gems. Some pink cherry blossoms and pretty lace, sent to me by my lovely blogging friend, Pauline.
Finally I added a multi bow made with pink crochet silk and added a pink heart gem.

Thank you for stopping by.  I'm hoping to try and get a few more cards made this week, as I have a few family birthdays coming up...although I may not get the chance to upload them.

Take care everyone!
Lots of love, Sasha xx

Welcome To Our New Little Bundle of Love

Hello everyone!  One of the reasons I have been missing is that since we returned from our holiday I  have been excited about the new addition to our family...
Meet Ella!!
She's just eight weeks old, and already a big girl.  She is as soft as velvet, sooooo cute and sweet!
I know she will never replace our lovely girl, Cookie.  But she will fill that emptiness in our hearts and our home.
I will no doubt be uploading more photos as she grows.
Thank you for stopping by.
Lots of love,
Sasha xx

Flourishes Beautiful World Tour - Summer Citrus Colours

Hello my lovely friends and followers! I do hope you are all well. Sorry for my lack of blogging....I will reveal why I have been absent in a later post and catch up with you all.
Today is the first Monday in July, and it's time for another globe trotting trip on the Beautiful World Tour. You should have arrived here from Aleksandra's blog, but if you didn't and you would like to join in you will need to start your tour back at the Flourishes blog in Florida. By visiting every designers blog on the tour, and leaving a comment, you will be in with the chance of winning a FREE Flourishes stamp set!!!
This month it was my turn to host the challenge. I love citrus colours, so I challenged the BW team to create something using these lovely bright and juicy summer colours.
Here is the card I created...
I used Spellbinders dies, which I embossed and also used the letterpress technique on some of them. I coloured them with distress inks and chalks.
My image is from the beautiful Flourishes 'With Gratitude' set of stamps, coloured with distress inks and markers. My sentiment is from Flourishes 'Tulips for Friends' set of stamps.
Thank you for visiting me today.  Your next stop on the tour is Naomi's blog in beautiful British Columbia Canada...
