Watch the birdie!

Hello everybody! Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful festive season with your loved ones! I had a brilliant time, can't believe just how quickly it's all over...all that planning and prep...then whizz's gone! Still, we can look forward to next year...!
I apologise for the poor quality of the photo of my DT card for this weeks challenge at Sweet Stampin', which is 'a little bird told me'. As it's still the season of goodwill we 've made it an  easy one this time, just needs a bird on your creation, plus some stamping of course! Mine is a simple tent fold card, the cute image is a freebie from Birdie Brown (how very apt!!!) coloured with copics. The bunting is hand cut and I added a stamped greeting! How I enjoyed not making a Christmas card!!!
We are sponsored this week by Crafty Ribbons and our usual monthly sponsor The Ribbon Girl.

Do you have Chrismas all tied up? Me neither! :) Even when I think I'm organised I'm just not!!! Ah, well it'll all get done in the end, I'm not going to stress about it!
Anyways, it's time for our new challenge at Hobbycutz and this week it's my turn to set the theme, which is 'All tied up'. Nice and easy, huh? All you need to do is add something that ties to your project! For my card I used this sassy image, Mrs Claus (lucky Santa!!) from the fabulous KennyK, our generous sponsor this week She's coloured with copics. I tied two tiny bells to a Hobbycutz wooden leaf, which is also coloured with copics.  Please take the time to visit the challenge blog to see what delights my teamies have for you, we would love to have you join us this week.
Have a lovely restful Sunday!
PS ...just 10 more sleeps!

It's getting closer....

Hi folks! I'm back again with yet another Christmas card! This one is for our new challenge at Sweet Stampin', which is 'last minute Christmas'. I think I've probably cheated here as my 'last minute' cards are usually made the day before Christmas Eve,
 still I expect you are all more organised than me and will be making your last minute preparations long before that :)!!
I used a gorgeous stamp from LOTV, I love it, so very cute! The three little girls are coloured with copics apart from their paper pieced dresses. You don't want to miss what my fabulous teamies have created this week so pop over to Sweet Stampin' and check out the inspiration. We'd love to see your 'last minute' makes and you could win a prize from our lovely sponsors Cuddly Buddly and The Ribbon Girl.
Have a great weekend!

Christmas is coming...very quickly!

Good morning, so pleased you stopped by, everyone is so busy getting prepared for Christmas it's great that you've found the time! I'm personally finding the run-up a lot less stressful this year as I'm no longer at work (yay!!!) but there's still so much to do, unless you are a man of course, then it's not your department!!!:)
Anyway, back to the card... this is my DT card for our last challenge this year at Southern Girls.  The theme, unsurprisingly, is Christmas. I used the cute Molly the elf image from Saturated Canary, who along with Marianne Design , is generously sponsoring the prizes for this challenge. Why not take a few minutes, you could do with a rest :), and pop over to visit the Southern Girls, you can feast your eyes on my talented teamies beautiful creations and I'm sure you have something wonderful you can share with us! C'mon don't be shy!!
Have a great day!

We wish you a Merry Christmas....

Good morning! It's time for the last challenge of this year over at Songbird Challenges, and our song this time is 'We wish you a Merry Christmas', which of course we all do! I've used the fabulous 'sleigh' stamp from our lovely sponsor Kenny K. I've coloured it with copics and a touch of white gel pen, added some glitter, some glossy accents to the runners and a bit of 'snow'. The papers are MME Dear Santa collection, and are all quite glittery IRL.
We'd love to have you play along with this challenge, you can click here to check out the fab creations from the DT and add your own to the link!

Little lost fairy...

Good morning! hope you're enjoying a lovely restful Sunday! This is a scheduled post as I have two small guests this weekend and I have absolutely no idea how the morning will pan out! In an ideal world they will be sleeping in until about 9am., we'll have a leisurely, civilized breakfast and their parents will arrive to collect them at about 10.30...yeah, right...dream on!!!!
Anyway, this is the card I made for our new challenge at Hobbycutz. The theme this week is 'create a scene'. We're sponsored by the Stamping Chef, who very generously gave us some beautiful images to play with. I chose to use the beautiful 'lost fairy' image, which I coloured with copics and Perfect Pearl paints, glittered her wings and fussy cut her out. The fabulous tree is a wooden Hobbycutz laser cut which you can buy here. The background is white card, coloured with pan pastels and stamped, using various stamps, with black Stazon. There is quite a lot of black glitter added but it does'nt really show in the photo!
Pop by the Challenge blog to check out the fabulous creations from my teamies! We really hope that you'll be inspired to join us this week!
Have a lovely day!
