LOTV Blowing bubbles

Good afternoon! Well I finally got my new LOTV stamps yesterday, and boy they were just the pick me up that I needed! Firstly, my husband spent a night in hospital with a suspected heart attack (he is only 33!!), after blood tests, breathing tests (to see if he had a clot on his lung) and a stress test, his heart pain was put down to stress! WHOA what a sigh of relief! I coloured this gorgeous elephant "blowing bubbles" from LOTV while I myself was in hospital yesterday having infliximab for my Crohn's Disease.  She has coloured up just beautiful.  Then today I recieved my order from Wild Orchid Crafts because I needed more flowers LOL!!!! aren't they just delish????
The papers are: making memories "Pink Dots Je t'Adore" and : Heart Doilies Je t'Adore"; and my minds eye "Lush pink houndstooth"; brown bazzil, and the lacey ribbon I bought from my LSS @ strathpine

this card I am going to enter into the Simon Says Challenge- they are looking for birthday cards.  I am also entering the sketch challenge from Lili of The Valley.over at creative craft challenge, they have a challenge to use lace, so I am entering this card there too :0)....I do hope you and the challenges I have entered like my bubble blowing elephant as much as I do :0)

 the sentiment is also a LOTV one.  I love them! Thanks for dropping by xox Tania xox

this is one for the boys...I always find male cards the hardest...I mean you can do simple ones, but when you are putting flowers and ribbons on girls cards, you want to make the boys just as loved!! this is an easel card with a bit of a difference. the robots are from a sheet of chipboard elements by My Minds eye "lil robots" I got these from my LSS a long time ago and have finally put them to use.  I got boggly eyes to make them that much cuter! Birthday boy is from a daisy and dandelion set  and monster hugs i think are from a set from inkadinkado.  

I made a box and stuck it to the front of the card for jellybeans or smarties or whatever really.

this is one of the new magnolia spring stamps...isn't she gorgeous??? Hawaiian tilda in all her glory :0) I coloured this while in hospital having my infliximab, so I didn't keep track of the colours I used sorry :0(  the sentiment is a lili of the valley stamp and I also got the pins from LOTV. the flowers are from wild orchid crafts ribbon from craft queen. the butterfly is from ebay, adn the pearl brad is a kaiser craft from my LSS

I found this beautiful box pattern by Lynn over @ splitcoasterstampers. you can find the pattern here. It is very easy to do and will be perfect for easter eggs for all my neices and nephews.   
of course there is the usual suspects: stickles, dimensional magic and lots of glitter

A nice short and sweet one thanks for dropping by xox Tania xox
