Wild Orchid Craft Challenge



Back at last, had a great time at the NEC and it was wonderful to meet so many lovely old friends and also lots of new ones.  I am absolutely jiggered today but am determined to get on with some crafting, been almost 2 weeks since I have really crafted.

Its Wild Orchid Craft Challenge  today and we have a lovely sketch by Bev for you to work with and also some delicious Candy kindly donated by Paul and Siri from Wild Orchid Crafts.



My Friend Lin rang me last Tuesday morning and asked me how I fancied a drive out in the country as it was such a glorious spring day, we had no idea where we were going but we ended up an hour and a half  later at Charlwood the home of Crafts U Love, (funny how every outing ends up with a crafty theme).   We drove up to this beautiful white barn in the middle of the country the home of Crafts U Love it is a stunning building and inside was even more stunning and an Aladdin's cave of goodies.You can imagine I had a fantastic time looking and spending and came home with lots of new Magnolias (which had just arrived in the store), and being me I had to but lots of backing paper.  Tracey and Paula made me feel really welcome and it was one of the best days I have had for ages.



Here is one of my new Tildas,  I have used Copics and Prismas to colour her, the paper is from Prima Sparkling Spring Collection.  The Tag and Sentiment are from the new Lili of the Valley Additions range, and the butterfly is a Martha Stewart Punch. 




Of course the beautiful roses and cherry blossom are from Wild Orchid Craft as is the White Seam Binding.  Don’t forget to come and join us on Wild Orchid Craft Challenge this fortnight, we love to see your cards.


The Copics used- Flesh E21, E00, E000, Hair E37, E35, E30, Dress BG11, BG10, Boots R81, RV000, Apron E42, E41, E40.


Thanks for looking and its good to be back

Hi Jacqui
It was lovely to meet you at last at the NEC. Wasn't it busy?!!!!!!
I know how you are feeling today. I have had to go in to school today(fortunately only half day). Thankfully the kids have been really good but I could have fallen asleep several times!!!!
I wish I had had the time to watch you colour with your copics but I only had a short time of the stand each day to do a major craft shop!!!!! I will study your Copics tutorial carefully!
Hugs sarah x

Hi Jacqui. This is quite a lovely card. I found your blog today and am looking forward to going through your tutorial blog as well. I have a question for you about your card today. Under the roses on the left side of your Magnolia stamp is a punch of I think what is pine needles - could you please tell me the name of that punch?
Thanks for your help!!!
