Just for Mum

Morning - well its suppose to be easter weekend - but I think the seasons are slightly muddled! Its been so cold here and we have even had nasty white suff falling from the sky! I like the winter but there is only so much I can handle! 

Anyway I'm here to share with you one of the cards I made for Mothers Day - this is the one we gave to my husbands mum! The cute image is from Lili of The Valley! 

E50, E51, E52, E55

The papers and lace are all from my stash.  Loved putting this card together! I hope you like it too!

Cowgirls Birthday

Morning all, starting to finally catch up with myself again - although I shouldn't speak too soon as we all know what will happen! I hope the weather is nicer where you are - here it is so bitterly cold and they are forecasting more snow this weekend!

Anyway I'm here to share with you a card I made a couple of weeks ago - i have had this stamp a while sat in the draw doing nothing - she has been one of those that I have always so desperately wanted to colour but never had the confidence - till now! 

Introducing the adorable Kaydance - I am head over heals for her :) 

I just love this little girl! she is so adorable and the little puppy by her heel is too cute! I had a fantastic time colouring her! I also had some time to get the nesties out for this one!


E50, 51,21,11, R20

Creative Creations Challenge #6 - The letter B

Morning all - I know I'm pants at this blogging at the moment - there just isn't enough hours in the day for me to do all I need to at the moment - roll on after the Easter holidays - Nancy will be at nursery one morning a week :) 

So I'm here today with the challenge at Creative Creations Challenges - Its a fab theme this one… 

The Letter B 

So your creation need items that start with the letter B 
(blue, bling, buttons….)

Our sponsor this week it the wonderful 

and the prize is two digs from the shop!

So onto my creation this week - I have spent hours pondering what to do - I wanted to try something different and so I decided that I was going to try a tag…. each DT member had to choose an image to work with - I chose the cute Violet Vintage

My B's

Blue, Brown, Buttons, Butterfly(s), Bling, Beautiful, (rose) Buds

Not bad for a first attempt I don't think! I used lots of odd bits from my stash - the base of the tag was made from a scrap of Kraft Card and the backing paper was an odd scrap!! I also had to get the TH DI Tea Dye out on this one to add some more brown!

The image was coloured with copics;

E50, 51, 21, 11, 57, R20
E33, 35

The ribbon buttons and twine are all from odd bits laying about in the room.  The butterflies were punched using my MS punch and kraft card - the 3mm rhinestones are from Hobby House and the flowers all from WOC. I hope you like her - Im quite impressed with how she came out :) I would like to enter this tag into the following challenges; 

Anything But a Card - Spring Colours 
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
Crafty Embellies - Anything Goes
Heck of a Challenge - Spring and Butterflies

Thanks for stopping by - I would love to know what you think and please pop to the Creative Creations Challenges Blog to see what the rest of the amazing DT came up with :)

Good Morning all!

Well as some of you may remember back in October last year I joined in with the 13 Days of Halloween challenges over at Simply Challenged Challenges - when it came to an end I was offered a GDT spot and I just had to say yes! so here I am today with my first post :) 

Im hopeful that you have come from Kaylou's blog - if not then pop back to the Simply Challenged Challenges blog and you will see the complete list on there :)

So the challenge for the next two weeks at Simply Challenged Challenges is 


It stumped me! and with being unwell recently I found it even harder but I got there in the end.  I decided to keep it quite simple for this challenge and have made a card using Stylin' Betty

I coloured the image using copics and then used my nesties…. I had to be cleaver here and while the die and paper were still together I used my craft knife and cut the inside out :) 

Well I hope you like my card and I hope you will pop back again soon

A dream is a Wish….

Good Morning! Happy Mothers Day to you all! Today will be spent mostly visiting people and then chill out tonight I think! So I have been a busy bee the past couple of weeks and so need to get into the craft room to tidy it up! I will try to get some photos of it posted on here for you really soon!!! 

Anyway I'm here to share a card with you that I made a few weeks ago using the beautiful Zoe that came with the colouring long hair MIC colouring book - now if you haven't seen me rave about these before then you will now! All three books are fantastic and so very helpful - I would recommend to anyone!

The image was coloured with copics;

E50, E51, E53
E00, E21, E11, R20, R21
(Will come back with the colours for the dress!)

All the papers are from my stash and the sentiment 'A dream is a wish your heart makes' is from a set of Tim Holtz stamps I have.  Well I hope you like her! I had lots of fun colouring her up and finishing this one off! I would like to enter this card into the following challenges; 

Colour me Creative - Anything Goes

I Love Mother

Good Morning - slowly getting back into the swing of things and the mojo is returning pretty fast - I know it feels so good - well till its 2am and you have so many ideas running round your head that you can't sleep - Never mind I'm just glad to get getting back to it! 

Anyway Mothers Day is just around the corner - this year is flying by! I have been working hard on some images that I have fallen head over heals for…. This beauty is called 'One Heart' from Whimsy Stamps - I just fell in love with her as soon as I saw her 

She was coloured with copics and papers from my stash.  I used my TH DI's around the edge of the papers and added lace with a metal charm to the front too, I'm so happy with how she turned out.  I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;

Whimsy Stamps Inspiration - Add some metal (the charm is metal)
