Very late Tiffany Doodles 3 posting!

Hi everyone

I'm sorry I've been so quiet the past few days.  We were away in Dorset with friends.  I brought my laptop with me but I couldn't get a connection to go on line and upload my card for the latest Tiffany Doodles challenge, so I'm sorry it's so late.

The challenge this month is Flower Power.  As you may know I used one of Tiffany's new flower digi images the other day for 2 Sketches 4 You that we were sponsoring.  This time I decided to use Lenten Rose w/blossom.  There are so many beautiful colours for these flowers, and the images Tiffany has designed are great!  All you do is print them out as they are and they fit perfectly into the largest blossom nestie.  Print, cut, colour, FAB!

Now, as before, please don't look too close at the colouring, I'm only learning as I said but I am hoping to do a copic course soon which should help iron out my issues! 

For the rest of my card I used East of India ribbon, some double sided grey/purple paper, not sure who it's by, and butterflies from my new Verve 'Blue Skies' set.  I just LOVE that font they've used, it's gorgeous.  To finish off I used Waltzingmouse 'Fancy Phrases' set with the 'Fancy Tags' nesties.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's blogs, they've done some great cards!
You have until the end of the month to enter for a chance to win some fab prizes! More details can be found on the main Tiffany Doodles site, just pop on over there to enter. Don't forget to grab our blinkies for your blog too!

I will leave you with a wonderful picture of 'The Old Mill House', the B & B our friends run in Dorset, where we stayed.  Just behind the tree to the right of the picture, beyond the wall is a table that I sat at with a cup of coffee and my scissors to do a spot of paper piecing, listening to the sound of the stream,  perfect! :o)  This is more of a retreat than a bed and breakfast, it is SO restful, and you couldn't be better looked after!  If you're in the area I definately recommend a visit!


  1. Hi Ruby, love the card, i like the little butterflies!and the colours are great. your retreat sounds lovely. there's really something about crafting outdoors amongst nature, i either find it really inspiring or completely distracting and getting nothing but daydreaming done!!

  2. Hi Ruby, Gorgeous cards as always and what a fantastic B&B, gorgeous outlook, just look at that garden, I would be in my element as gardening is my first passion. Have a good day, Tracy Evans x

  3. Love the purple flowers and card! So very pretty! The pattern paper is gorgeous. The other card has such a lovely focal point with the flower on the ribbon.


Thanks for popping by to view my blog and for taking the time to leave a message. I really appreciate your feedback. Ruby xx
