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.
Thanks for visiting my blog, you're always very welcome!

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!

Sweet Stampin' Christmas...April Challenge


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!

Have a lovely day

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'. I love blue and brown together so I used blue DP with kraft. The beautiful image, Lily, is courtesy of one of our sponsors for this fortnight, Ching-Chou Kuik. I've coloured her with copics . The extra lilies are coloured to match.
Take a look here at the Challenge Blog for full details of this fortnight's challenge and sponsors, there's some fantastic creations from my teamies ...hopefully they'll inspire you to play along with us, we'd love to see your favourite colours too!

Thanks for taking the time to visit today.
