Hi peeps,
Hi to all my new followers and thanks for all the lovely comments over the last few days. :)

Here's a card my sister asked me to make for her friends 65th bday
As always it was at the last minute so I rustled this one up quickly


She wanted something a bit special so I made this one 8x8


The paper is a download from pink petticoat which I printed onto ivory linen card stock
the mat/sentiment I printed using page plus and cut by hand :)
The flowers are made using tim holtz tattered florals die plus a couple of torn/rolled roses
Leaves are a woodware grass punch

Thanks for stopping by today and sorry about the rubbish photos.:(

Monday

bags of love...

... Here's a bag card and little gift bag to match I made for a daily challenge I take part in over on facebook.


I'm really enjoying taking part as it's taking me out of my comfort zone a little and making think about making others things rather than just cards with stamped images on 


I'm entering this challenge into the
this is the challenge blog of the lovely group I belong to on Facebook

Sunday

Remember that Butterfly ....

... I was on about yesterday? Well my stupid tummy wouldn't let me get much sleep last night so I decided to crack on with it and here is the result.
I decided to add a quote to mine for something a bit different to the ones I've seen


The wording reads:

Happiness is a butterfly
which when pursued
is always just beyond your grasp
but which, if you will sit down quietly
may alight upon you

The butterflies are a spellbinders die
papers are from pink petticoat lola's boudoir collection
Again the frame is from my bargain find at wilkos £3 for 20"x20" :)

Sorry about the rubbish piccies but it's grey here today :(

Saturday

And now for something...

...completely different :)
I saw THIS on pinterest and never gave it much more thought but when I saw these 20"x20" frames in wilkos sale for £3 (bargain or what!) I thought ohhh and had to buy a few up :)

I set to work and I admit I really just copied the idea but used a few more photos and obviously just made it bigger :) The piccies are from my wedding and some of the papers are from pink petticoat and others I embossed and aged with peeled paint distress ink to go with my living room decor
Tim Holtz tattered floral die and nesties 


There are loads of this type of thing on Pinterest
are you a member?? I may attempt one of the ones with the punched butterflies in rows next time
..so many projects to do and not enough time!! lol

Sorry about the glare on the piccie I wish I hadn't but the glass back in before I took the photo :(

Thursday

I'm with Genius

Hi All,
Well whilst I was over at Tiddly inks the other day I just couldn't resist this little Fella ....he reminds me so much of our nephew Riley when he was younger.


I coloured him with prismacolor pencils
The papers are from a sweet shoppe designs seasonal sampler.

Thanks for stopping by today
and hello to all my lovely new followers *waves*

Wednesday

A little birdie told me......

....It's your birthday

Morning all :)
Today I'm showing you a little card I made using this adorable Wryn image from Tiddlyinks
It's not often I buy digi's . Being on some fab digi design teams usually quenches my thirst for new images but when I saw this little madam I just couldn't resist. Mostly due the the fact that Christine keeps showing us the most adorable cards with her on. *Slaps Christines wrist* lol


I am struggling to find where the papers are from. I know they are from a kit called playing in the rain but I have searched for them and can't find them again.I'm guessing sweet shoppe designs but I could be wrong and maybe they are no longer available as I've had them for a longtime. 
My papers got all mixed up when I had to quickly back them up to the external hard drive. I have no idea why, but I couldn't save the whole folder it kept freezing so I had to sit and manually move everything by dragging and dropping. As you can imagine it was a very long and boring process and I got terribly confused somewhere along the lines! That will teach me to back up regularly ( which I now do) won't it!!

Anyhow I coloured the lovely Wryn with prismacolor pencils
The flowers are an xcut punch.
The font is worstveld sling

Only a Mother

Hi all,

I thought I would try and get ahead and make my Mothers day cards and I thought THESE
Clipart Fairy sets would be just the ticket


The one I've used can be found HERE 



I only wish I could get a decent picture as it is beautiful IRL even if I do say so myself.
It's very grey here today :(

I simply added a nice verse to mine but these are so very versatile . 
You could add digis or stamped images

love is in the air

Hi peeps hope you are enjoying a lovely relaxing Sunday. I got up had a lovely bacon sarnie then went for a long walk in the sunshine with hubby. Had a lovely Sunday roast followed by a quick nap then in to a lovely hot bath and into my snuggly new jim jams. Now for a spot of cardmaking/blogging then settle down for the evening for a cwtch with hubby and to watch midwifes whilst scoffing a big bag of pocorn between us...aaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh blissssssssssssssss

Anyway enough waffle and on to my card
I made this using 2 of the newly released "valetines" images from The Digistamp Boutique..not only for valentines of course!


It's an 8x8 card one of the main reasons I love digi stamps so much because no matter what size your project you can always adjust your image to suit!
The papers and flowers are from a sweet shoppe designs digi paper pack by krystal hartley simply summer add on
I have coloured the image with prisma color pencils as always

Wednesday

Love U

Hi all, Thanks for stopping by today ..Wednesday already! can't quite believe how fast the weeks are going! It's absolutely freezing here again this morning so much so that the cat has gone in to hibernation I think! I bought her one of those beds that fits over the radiator last week and she hasn't been out of it since. Sometimes I give her a stroke as I walk past and she's that hot she should be cooking lol. No work today so I think I might have a nice hot bath after the housework is done and snuggle up on the sofa with a nice book this afternoon :) 
Right enough waffle and on to my card

Today's card is made using one of the new digistamp boutique images


The image is Valentine Rufus
He is coloured with prisma pencils
The papers/flowers were a free down from Paper Caper Designs ( which I think has expired now)
Sorry about the photo It seems to have whited out a bit a combination of a not so good camera and poor lighting :(

Hope you all had a good weekend? I went out in the snow for a little bit on Sunday and had a bit of a horse around in it . But I was so cold when I got in I was scared to take my boots of for fear my toes had fallen off inside  them lol Maybe I'm getting to old for this malarkey!

Boy he loves the snow!

Happy Day Daisy

It's release day over on The Digistamp Boutique and once again Sally-Ann has produced some beauties for us. I adore this Daisy image


She is just one of the offers of the month and comes in a set of three ..bargain!

I coloured her with Prisma pencils
the papers and flowers are a free download from A Lady called Melany Violette However when I click on the link I have it takes me to a search site .So it would seem that the lady no longer has the site and that the freebies aren't on offer anymore :(
The font is called Eight fifteen

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope the snow isn't to bad for you. 
Do you hate it? or love it?I personally love it and plan to be out in it this afternoon :) can't wait!
The cat is not so keen. I think she has needed a wee since last night but she will NOT go out the cat flap. She stuck her head out last night and looked at me as much to say "what the........." lol Hope she doesn't explode! :)
