Dressing up



A 'just for fun ' card from me today using some gorgeous stamps from Mo Manning...just couldn't resist these! All images coloured with copics, the centre one was printed twice, one image flipped to cut out and place in the mirror which is covered with acetate.


Created a concertina-ed card shape , I needed something that folded out to accommodate all the images and stamped sentiments. It folds up quite neatly though!
Papers are LOTV, sadly no longer available.
Thanks for calling by, have a good week.

In the garden...


...I'm back! Here's my card for this week's challenge at Fab N Funky , it's our lovely boss lady, Judith's turn to host and pick the theme and a lovely theme it is too...'In the garden'...I'm sure I'm not the only one who's spent a lot of time there lately!
Our sponsor this week is the lovely Lemon Shortbread

Lemon shortbread Digi Stamps

The DT were given 2 sweet images to choose from...I couldn't choose so greedily I used both...garden girl with cat and gardening girl. The first image I coloured in it's entirety (Copics again!) and die cut into circle. The second image I just coloured the girl and fussy cut her. My base is a side step card, I've added some die cuts...a tree in blossom in a stamped pot, a tag with stamped sentiment, a stamped watering can , leafy branch and some die cut daisies on the lawn. 
My teamies have created some beautiful cards to inspire you so hop over here to enjoy them! We'd love to see what you make of this theme so hope to see you play along this week.

Paper Piecing at Sweet Stampin'


Happy Easter! Hope you're all enjoying the long weekend.  This week at Sweet Stampin' our challenge theme is 'paper-piecing' which is one of my favourite techniques...it's easy to do, just needs a bit of accurate cutting and it has such a lovely effect.
My card is very CAS...the stamp is so large there's not a lot of room for anything else...just a stamped sentiment. The image is coloured with copics and I've paper-pieced her dress. Simples!
My lovely teamies have created some beautiful cards to inspire you this week...just click here to take a peek then it's up to you to get paper-piecing and join the fun!
Thanks for visiting!

Good morning, hope the sun is shining where you are! We've had some fabulous sunshine here over the last few days..it's almost Easter..so it seemed a great time to make a Christmas card !!?! I've had a busy few days looking after my Mum so a quick and simple card from me! I'm trying very hard to make enough 'postable' cards this year, so quite pleased with this one. Some die cut trees...cut in white and pale grey card and offset. A stamped sentiment and embossed background inside a simple die cut frame.
There's some amazing creations from the rest of the team at Sweet Stampin' Christmas Challenge, and as always it's an 'Anything Christmas' theme, so why not hop over here and take a peek...and why not join us this month, you'll be so glad you did later on in the year!

Favourite colours


Good morning...where has this week gone?  I'm sure weeks are at least 2 days shorter than they used to be!! Thursday is here already and The Southern Girls have a new challenge for you....so easy this fortnight the theme is 'Favourite Colour Combo'.

Birthday Weirdo!


Good morning! Hope your week is going well...mine is going...fast! Had a crazy busy week so far, still trying to catch up with myself, so I'll keep this short! Here's my DT card for our new challenge at Creative Moments, the optional theme this time is 'Spring colours'. My card doesn't have a spring theme at all, but for me green and yellow are the colour of spring...I was allowed to choose an image from Dr Digi, one of our fab sponsors this fortnight (please click here to visit the main challenge blog for full details of sponsors)...so here here he is...Birthday-Bot, all coloured up with my copics then generously coated with glossy accents...perfect card for one of my brothers who is a weirdo...still love him though!

Back again with my 3rd card today (phew!). It's my turn to host the challenge at Fab 'n' Funky this week...which means I get to pick the theme :)) and as we're sponsored by the fabulous Kenny K this week it was an easy choice for me ...Music or inspired by a song, as I love their wonderful Rock images, and I have several of them :), I couldn't decide which one I liked the most...so I made a whole rock band! I used: Metal DrummerVikki Lee ViciousRock DudeGroove Dude and Star. coloured them all with copics, fussy cut and arranged them on my step card 'stage'. I added the two chip board shapes, covered with black glitter, to finish. I so enjoyed colouring these fantastic characters!

Christmas at sweet Stampin'...March Challenge


Good morning! The March Challenge is up and running over at Sweet Stampin' Christmas, it's anything goes as long as it has a Christmas theme. I went a little crazy with my Crazy Bird stamps (why are these so addictive to use??). I made card with a money holder envelope on the front ( lots of teens and young adults - mostly male- in the family, they always appreciate money gifts!) Once I'd made a template for the little envelope this was so quick to make- I made 2 more! I'll be so pleased I did later in the year!!

Special Sister!

Here I am again...as promised (or do I mean threatened?!!:)) with my DT make for March's Challenge at Crafty Calendar, the theme is 'Mother's Day or Special Lady', so I thought I'd share the card I made for my lovely and very special sister's birthday last month. I made her a pop up box card, not made one of these for a while! The cute fairy is from That Craft Place and I chose to use her because her cheeky smile reminds me of my sister as a child! I've surrounded her with die cut balloons, bunting and lots of presents... my sister LOVES presents!! :))
There's some beautiful inspiration from my lovely teamies to be seen by hopping over here, we have a fantastic sponsor this month, Wild Orchid Crafts, so why not make something for your Mum or another special lady in your life,link it up with us and you could be the lucky winner of something gorgeous!

No Design Paper at Sweet Stampin'

Good morning...hooray, it's Saturday, and that means it's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. This week we challenge you to create something without using any design paper. You can make your own of course, using stamps stencils etc...but no 'bought' or downloaded papers please! So plenty of scope to get creative, as long as you include some stamping you can make whatever you like! I recently bought a set of tiny Cardio stamps, these are so dainty and pretty so this seemed like the ideal time to try them out. I swiped some green distress ink across a piece of white cardstock, then with a bit of masking here and there I randomly stamped the pansies and leaves using various colours of distress inks. I attached a narrow band of ribbon and then a smaller square of the same white cardstock embossed and with a die cut aperture. The butterflies are part of the same stamp set, one is stamped directly into the aperture, the other onto a spare piece of card and fussy cut . Sentiment stamp a magazine freebie.
We'd love to see what you make of this challenge, so please just click   here to check out the fabulous work of my fabulous teamies ..then get creating!
Thanks for visiting.... I'll be back later with another card!

Art Journal page

Good evening! A very late post from me today. I came across a beautiful leather covered book the other day, whilst looking for something completely different. It was given to me by my lovely friend some years ago, I put it away and totally forgot I had it  (there's gratitude for you!). I thought it would make a perfect art journal, so I got out my inks, paints, stamps, pan pastels, stencils etc and made this! The image is one I won some time ago from the The East Wind, and as these images have lovely clean lines I thought I'd be brave and attempt to paint her with acrylics, totally outside my comfort zone!!!. As you can see I'm very much an amateur, but I did enjoy myself and can't wait to have time to do this again! Didn't enjoy clearing up the mess afterwards though...even messier than usual today!
Thanks for looking, have a lovely weekend.

Christmas time at Fab 'n' Funky


Here I am again..., second post for today...this time with my DT card for this week's challenge at 
Fab n Funky.  It's Team Funky's turn this week, and as it's the last Wednesday of the month, the theme is 'Christmas', it's our lovely Ginny's turn to host the challenge, and I'm sure she'd appreciate a visit from you too!
Our sponsor this week is Di's Digis
Di's Digi Downloads
I recently bought a pack of kraft card blanks at a craft show...they were  quite big and really cheap, probably because the card  is a bit rough, but I'm using them anyway! They also have scalloped edges ...which I'm not over keen on...so I decided to remove the scallops leaving me with a nice size card...not too big! I made a very simple card, using scraps of DP, layered onto white embossed cardstock which was matted onto  larger scrap of DP. I added a large die cut snowflake and a punched reindeer...punched out several times and glued together for dimension. The 'joy' diecut (part of a larger Tim Holtz die) was treated the same way. I finished it with the previously cut off scalloped edge. Didn't take too long to make...so I made another...the same but different! So 2 more cards for the Christmas box! 


Thanks for visiting today, be sure to pop over and check out what the rest of Team Funky have made for you to enjoy...then it's up to you to create your own Christmas themed project for us to enjoy! Just think how glad you'll be later in the year not to be in panic mode!
Have a great day

Good morning, hope the week is going well for you! I have some cards to share today, the first is my DT card for our new challenge at Creative Moments...optional theme this fortnight is 'keep it masculine', we're sponsored for this by Eureka Stamps and Scribbles Designs, so some fabulous digital stamps await the lucky winner.
I was able to choose an image from Eureka to make my card. I fell in love with this adorable Snoozing Puppy as soon as clapped eyes on him...just look at that blissful face, and he's so cuddly! I printed him onto white cardstock, coloured with copics then very carefully cut around his dangly bits...paws ears jowls etc to insert my die underneath. I then matted it onto a piece of scrap dp and added three little die cut buttons...quick, simple and flat to post!

We want to see flowers!!!


Good morning, another week has flown past, spring will soon be here! It's felt quite springlike here already for the last couple of days...mild weather, some sunshine and the first bulbs are starting to flower...can't wait! This week's challenge at Sweet Stampin'is a lovely and easy one, we want to see flowers on your creations, they don't have to be stamped as long as you include some stamping somewhere on your card. I loved making this card, a CAS design for a change, using a very old and much loved wooden stamp, I stamped the flower directly onto the  card blank near to the top left hand corner, then masked the image and stamped twice more letting it go over the edge. I then stamped the flower onto the smaller piece of white card, carefully lining up the image so that the flowers matched. Matted the smaller square onto deep blue cardstock, then placed it over the first image. The colouring was very quick, using a wet brush and distress ink pads. The stamped sentiment was a freebie with a magazine.


If you want to feast your eyes on some beautiful floral creations just hop over here and check out the inspiration from my lovely teamies. Then it's your turn to inspire us with your own fabulous florals!

Colours of Mardi Gras


I made this card with the current challenge at Aurora Wings  in mind, which is to use the colours of Mardi Gras...purple, green and gold.I had a lovely time colouring the gorgeous image, Diamonds. I used copics and added a touch of glitter here and there.  I'm happy with how the image came out, not so keen on the card design.

...are you for real?...


Happy Sunday!  A 'just because' card to share today...weather's been grim, cold wet and miserable...at least the snow didn't amount to anything...so I've been reading (a lot) and playing with my new stamps! I coloured up this cutie yesterday, just can't resist a dragon! I used copics to colour and followed a sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday. The paper was free with a magazine, I added a stamped sentiment and few punched and die cut stars. The stars are glittery but it doesn't show in the photo!
Thanks for visiting, enjoy what's left of the weekend.

Three or more patterned papers...Southern Girls Challenge #153


Hello, I'm a bit late today...thought I'd better give in and do a bit of housework, much against my inclinations! Still, it's done now and I can sit here in a rosy virtuous glow even though I know it's doomed to get messy again very quickly! Hubby will be returning from his walk with a large muddy Great Dane and my two eldest granddaughters will be in later for tea...fascinates me how kids create a mess without trying!!! :)
Anyways, this is my card for our new challenge over at Southern Girls which is '3 or more patterned papers' yes  '3 or more patterned papers' not '3 or more layers' which I'd convinced myself it was...made my card...went to add it to challenge blog and realised I'd made a boo boo! So back to the drawing board! At least this gorgeous image, Annabelle, was fun to colour so I was quite happy to colour her up again. My papers are from a pad which was a bargain buy at a local £1 shop...not sure of the make but the papers are gorgeous!
I do hope you can spare the time to visit over at Southern Girls, there's some gorgeous cards made by my teamies for you to enjoy, and of course we'd really love it if you choose to play along. We have a fantastic sponsor this time...Crafts And Me ...so someone is going to win some beautiful digis!
Before I go I'll share the first card...the one without 3 patterned papers....

Thanks for looking
