I feel like it's Christmas in March:-)!

Bonjour à toutes! Et oui, la semaine débute, mais de manière agréable, avec un nouveau challenge chez Cupcake! J'ai choisi le thème cette semaine, à savoir "monochrome"! Grâce à nos fabuleux sponsors, vous pourrez peut-être gagner 5 images de votre choix chez Prairie Fairy Designs ou un bon d'achat de £10 chez Funky Farm Scrapbook Barn. Mais ce n'est pas tout!

For my card, I have used a fantastic image generously given to the DT by Prairie Fairy Designs, and I simply ADORE it, thank you so much:-)!
J'ai eu la chance d'utiliser une image offerte par Prairie Fairy Designs pour ma carte, et je la trouve tout simplement fantastique cette image... Merci!!!

Sorry that photo is not good, my card didn't like the lamp that way... So let's focus on the image I was telling you about, can't you feel the love...
Désolée, la photo n'est pas géniale, ma carte n'a pas aimé l'éclairage de face... Voilà juste l'image craquante...

Image: A mother's Love - Prairie Fairy Designs
Copics: C0, 1, 3, 5
DPs: Pebbles (2 sides of the same paper)
Other: Black Soot Distress Ink, Nestabilities (Labels 8), Prima gem centre, Basic Grey pearls, ribbon recycled from Christmas present

I did not even add a sentiment because I thought it was not necessary, the "A Mother's Love" image speaks for itself... Pas de texte ajouté, je trouvais que cette image sur l'amour maternel parlait d'elle-même...

Cupcake 132 DT... And the first Tilda I am posting...

Hello everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend? To start the week nicely, of course I am going to share a little Cupcake with you! But first, thank you to all those who joined my challenge last week, we all loved visiting you to see your fantastic not square creations, and I have to say, picking the Top 5 was REALLY difficult! 

Bonjour à toutes! J'espère que vous avez passé un bon week-end ensoleillé? Pour commencer la semaine en douceur, je vous propose un nouveau petit challenge Cupcake, mais avant, tout, un énorme merci à toutes celles qui ont participé à mon challenge la semaine dernière, nous avons adoré voir toutes vos créations autres que carrées, et n'en choisir que 5 s'est avéré bien difficile!

It is a special challenge today at Cupcake, the theme has not been chosen by the DT but by Em who is our Guest Designer this week for her very own challenge, and she has chosen the fab theme of "Pink Polka Dots"! We are being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp who are offering the lucky winner a $20 gift voucher to their superstore! And our March sponsor for the Icing on the Cupcake is Wild Rose Studio, who are offering two adorable stamps from the Spring 2011 release, Mia with Teddy and Toby with Butterfly!
 
Aujourd'hui, challenge spécial chez Cupcake, le thème n'a pas été choisi par la DT mais par Em qui est GD cette semaine pour son propre challenge, et elle a choisi le thème "A pois roses"! A gagner, un bon d'achat de $20 offert par Simon Says Stamp! En participant au challenge vous pourrez peut-être gagner notre prix mensuel, sponsorisé ce mois-ci par Wild Rose Studio qui offrent 2 adorables tampons de la nouvelle collection, Mia with Teddy et Toby with Butterfly!

So, ready for some pinkness? Here is my card, the very first Tilda I am posting!
Prêtes pour du rose? Ma carte, je suis émue, c'est la toute première Tilda que je mets sur mon blog:-)!


Valentine's Day is over, I know, but this card is for someone special and since she is French and can't speak English very well, I am not going to translate:-)! A close up...


Stamp: Tilda With Heart and sentiment by Magnolia
Copics
DPs: Doodlebug and Craft Creations
Punch: MS Cherish, EK Success Retro Flowers
Other: Pearls, Star Dust Stickles and 3D foam

I stamped 2 images, one for the background and coloured it very quickly, the other image was coloured then cut out and put on the other image on the background using 3D foam. That technique takes more time, but I really like it. You can guess that's what I did if you look at the sideways view below...

Comme il n'y a pas si longtemps, j'ai tamponné l'image 2 fois, une pour le fond, coloriée très rapidement et une autre que j'ai coloriée puis découpée et montée sur mousse 3D sur celle du fond. Cela prend un peu de temps, mais j'aime beaucoup cette technique, que vous pouvez deviner sur la photo suivante...


A few challenges I would like to enter:
Just Magnolia - Week 96 - Anything Goes (option of glitter, the heart on my card) My first time there:-)
ABC Challenge - P is for Pink
All That Scraps - Anything Goes
Make It Colourful - #9 Make It shiny, Colour with Shine!

That's all from me today, but please take a look HERE at what the rest of the DT and Guest Designers have made- we are welcoming some very lovely ladies for the month of March! Thank you very much for your visit, have a great week!
N'hésitez pas à regarder ce que le reste de la DT a fait ICI et à encourager nos nouveaux Guest Designers! Merci beaucoup pour votre visite et à très vite! Bisous,
Hugs,
