Friends like you..

Gooood morning you wonderful lot! 

Some of you may be wondering if I have simply disappeared from the face of the Earth. The simple answer to that, would be no. I just really haven't had the energy or the inclination to type up blog posts lately. I know that's bad of me, but sometimes I feel it's utterly pointless for the hits I get.

Onwards. Today we have a new challenge over at Passion for ProMarkers

This week, our lovely Shelly would like to see..


I froze a little with fright when I first seen this challenge listed over in DT land! Lilac and lemon are pastel colours. I never use pastel colours. I go bold or go home. So I really had to get my thinking cap on for this one. I sat down and worked out some new, paler, colour combos, and went to work.

I used this gorgeous image from Stamping Bella, which I have had for ages but never properly coloured up. I love these images. They're not super detailed, so relatively quick to colour up. Plus the style in which they are drawn is very forgiving if you do happen to go over the line or squiggle a little messy. Love them. I must invest in more in the future! 

Anywho. PRIZES!! I know some of you absolutely ROCK these pastel colours, so I can't wait to see what you whip up! ;) Crafty Sentiments are sponsoring us. They're offering a prize of THREE digis to the lucky winner! 

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you get a chance to join in. xo

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

You are too kind!


Good morning wonderful people! 

I've got another make to share with you all today. This time it's an Avery Elle and MFT mash up! 

I layered the stitched panel onto a vellum die cut, cut with Blueprints 20. I can't tear myself away from these dies at the moment! 

Thanks for stopping by today. xo

Hugs & Kisses

It's time for a new challenge over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps today! 

**All You Need Is Love**

I used the adorable Cuthbert Cupid from Pollycraft. Had to. Look at him! Adorable!! I coloured him up using ProMarkers to match papers from Echo Park which I seem to have a total obsession with lately. I love the colour of his t-shirt. Anywho.

Yip. Echo Park paper, a whole load of Stampin' Up cardstock, Memory Box and MFT dies, paper flowers, sequins. All of that yummy goodness. I even used up a little crochet flower that I've been hoarding forever! ;) 2015 is the year to use up stash! 

I hope you find the time to pop over to Little Miss Muffet Stamps and join in with our last challenge of January 2015! xx

You're the best!!

Good morning you lovely lot! 

I'm checking in with you this morning with some My Mum's Craft Shop inspiration. Using a bunch of Lawn Fawn goodies - which Kitty will have back in stock ASAP! You don't wanna miss out. Keep your eyes peeled for our newsletter dropping into your inbox. 

I used the THANKS DIE from Lawn Fawn to create my own chipboard word. I die cut the thanks with some navy blue cardstock 4-5 times and layered them up.

I then stamped a sentiment from Thank You Tags before cutting it with a die from Blueprints 20 from MFT and layering it over a tag cut using another Lawn Fawn die.

As a little whimsy, I stamped coloured and die cut a little critter from Monster Mash stamp set and matching die and tucked it behind the tag.

That's about it. Oh, and my papers are old My Minds Eye!

Thank you for stopping by today! xo
