The perfect combination

Hello there,

I hope you are well today!

I'm back with another challenge from Sweet Stampin but be warned - its a lovely dovey one! As February is fast approaching (where has January gone??) we thought you better get ready for that special day of the year....yes, our theme this week is Valentines.

As many of you know I love nothing better than a spot of tea and cake....to me this are the perfect combination....and so I decided to feature my favourite things on this week's card....


I've gone for a simple design, layering my kraft card and adding some stitching as a border. My image has been coloured with my Promarkers and I created the sentiment on my computer.

I'm really pleased with how it turned out and hope that Joe likes it too!


For more Valentines inspiration pop by the Sweet Stampin challenge blog and take a peek at the gorgeous DT cards that have been created. While you're there you can take a peek at our fab sponsor this week....

It's your Birdday!

Hello there,

Happy Saturday! I hope you're well today.

This week's challenge over at Sweet Stampin has a fab "things with wings" theme - there are so many different things with wings so take your pick and get crafting....just remember to include some stamping on your creation!

Now prepare yourself for my card as I've gone a little crazy with the colour combo.....


I told you it was a bit crazy! But it makes me smile so I am happy!

I've coloured my image with my Promarkers and added a lot of sparkle with my Stickles. I have then created a background using both plain, glitter and patterned papers. Finally I added a little faux stitching as a border to my image.

There is so much going on on the front of the card....so I decided to move the sentiment inside....

Christmas Bows

Hello there,

Welcome back to my crafty blog, I hope you're well today.

Today I am back with the first challenge of the year from Christmas at Sweet Stampin - if you want to get ahead with your Christmas card collection for this year why not join us? All you need to do is follow the theme and of course use a stamp on your creation.

So what's the theme I hear you say....this month it's Bows. We also have a rather fab sponsor this month called Robyn's Fetish, who not only is providing our prize but also some lovely digi images for the DT to play with.

I picked a rather cheerful looking Rudolph image for my card.....


Isn't he a cutie? 

I have no idea why I have gone with a blue theme for this card.....nor why I have featured snowflakes....but the sparkle makes me smile and I am pleased with how the final card looks. 

I have coloured my little Rudolph with my Promarkers. 

Pop by the Christmas at Sweet Stampin challenge blog for more inspiration from the fab DT this month. While you're there you can also see the fab prize on offer from Robyn's Fetish.

I'm forever blowing bubbles!

Hello there,

I hope you are well today!

Did you know that Friday 8th January was Bubble Bath Day?? No, nor did I until I popped by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog today! To celebrate this day Crazy 4 Challenges has a bubble theme for their challenge this week and I have the perfect stamp for that theme.....


So many bubbles in that bath.....I'd love to sink into all those bubbles with a glass of champagne and relax until I'm all wrinkly! I have complimented the bubbles with my lilac and white polka dot patterned paper. I have used my Promarkers and Stickles to colour the image and add a little sparkle.

As well as the Crazy 4 Challenges bubble challenge I would also like to enter this card in the new challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations, which is a gorgeous colour combo challenge:


I love this pretty colour combo and thought it went well with my bubble bath theme.

When I popped by the Cupcake Inspiration blog earlier I also discovered something quite wonderful..... I've been picked by Jen as one of their Sweet Six for last week's challenge and I get a shiny new blog button....


Thank you ladies - such a lovely surprise and much appreciated!

Don't forget to pop by both Crazy 4 Challenges and Cupcake Inspirations to see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created this week.

It's all peachy.....and a bit blue

Hello there,

I hope you're well today.

I had a spare hour before I dinner prep this evening, so I headed to my craft room to make some cards. There is something so therapeutic about being creative and playing with colours - I blast my (country) music up loud, sing badly and get my craft on!

So tonight I decided to play with some colours that I don't use together very often....a bit of peach and a bit of blue....


I have used a combination of pretty papers, ribbon, a digi stamp birthday cake and a die-cut notelet that looks like a doilie. The notelet is part of a new set that I have, there are six different designs in the pack, but I think this is my favourite - its so pretty!

I have used two ribbons, they have been stitched to each other to keep them in place (which meant I got to use my sewing machine - woo hoo). At first I thought the blue ribbon was a little too dark, but I think I have balanced it out well with the blue cake plate in the image. I have coloured my image with my Promarkers, using an ivory colour for the cake, an orange and green for the flowers and a blue for the place. 

Finally I added a little glitter to my flowers with my Stickles.


All in all I am pretty pleased with this card. I think the colours give a delicate look to the card, which matches my fake doilie. 

I'd like to enter this card in the following card challenges:

Allsorts - ribbon and lace
Fab n Funky - something new - the diecut notelet
Cute Card Thursday - hey what's new - the diecut notelet
