There's a new Sheriff in town!

Hi everyone, i hope you are all ok.
Hello as well to my new followers and THANK YOU for following me!
I'm going to visit you, too!
This card that i want to share today is one that i made for my brother, Cameron, for his Birthday.
I won the cowboy hat digi from Digi Darla and because Cameron loves the Young Guns films i thought it would be perfect. I coloured it in with Mum's promarkers. I didn't have the right paper so my brother, Richard helped me to make some using the same digi. I really like how it turned out and i used brown and red card for matting and layering. I typed the sentiment on the computer.
Now i've got to go and make a card for my other brother, Nic!!!
Thank you for looking.
Love from Rebecca

Hiya, i hope you are all ok.
 Last week was half term holidays for me and i did some crafting and entered a few challenges and guess what?                                          
I was soooo lucky because i won and got top 3 at Wicked Wednesday and got top 3 at Pile it on!
And i got a special mention on Lexi's Creations challenge blog as well!
Then i was awarded the Liebster blog award for my blog!
For anyone that doesn't know, the Liebster award is given to inspirational blogs with less than 200 followers.
Liebster is a German word meaning dearest or favourite and the tradition is that I would pass
 on the award to 5 
other blogs that have encouraged, inspired and motivated me.
To accept the award here's what you need to do:
1....Thank the person who gave you the award on your blog 
2....Link back to that blogger on your blog
3....Post the award to your blog         
4....Pass on the award to 5 of your most valued blogs (less than 200 followers)     
5....Leave a comment on those 5 blogs to let them know 

The person who gave me the award was Jo, my Mum and her blog is HERE
 So thank you Mum and for letting me share your desk and all your stash!!!
It was really hard for me to choose 5 blogs because they are all really good but in the end i chose these ones
because they make really nice things and they always leave me nice comments and that makes me want to craft even  more.

I hope you are happy to have this award but if you aren't then that is fine too!
Love from Rebecca xx

Sparkles Challenge DT - Things with wings

 Hello everybody, I hope you are all OK.
I'm on half term and having a lovely time so I hope you are too!
It's time for the new challenge at Sparkles today and whatever you make has to have 
something with wings on it!

 The winner will get a £10 voucher to spend with our sponsor - The FAB  Lili of the valley!
That would be great wouldn't it, thank you Lili of the valley!
I made a bookmark this time. I make lots of them as presents but I think I'm going to keep
this one for myself
I started with some light purple card, them I got my fairy which is a die cut from Lili of the Valley and put some glitter on her wings, I used some backing paper that came with the Fairies, some white ribbon ans some dark purple pearls.    
You've got 2 weeks to play the challenge at Sparkles  and don't forget to go see all the
 lovely things that my teamies have made cos they are really good!  
I hope you enter and I can't wait to see what you make.
Good luck.
Love from Rebecca

Mummy loves you!!!

Hello, i hope you are ok. We've got loads of snow here and it's freezing cold!
It's half term as well so i'm going to have some craft days with my Mum.
Today i made a Valentine ATC with a digi from Squiggle stamps. I think its funny to use this mummy image for  a valentine instead of using hearts and kisses and things like that. 
First i cut some red card to the right size for an ATC, then i printed the mummy and coloured him with Mums grey flexmarker to make his bandages look grotty and dirty.
 I typed the words under mummy before i printed it.
Then i glued the picture onto the red card and made some red corner bits out of scraps of card
and put a pearl on them. Thats it.
 I hope you like it and thanks for looking.
And have a good weekend.
Love from Rebecca
