Sweet Treat Bunny

Well it's time to share my second post of the day for the current challenge over at Bestieschallenge.blogspot . This time I have made a topper for a Easter "sweet treat" using the cute Bestie Bunny in a Egg. Scan0023

It's quite simply but I needed a couple of gifts for little ones and these tiny eggs were perfect to fit in my holder tubes but the tops looked plain. So I made a tent fold topper out of purple cardstock and cut a hole for the tube to fit in (sorry it's a bit squiffy on top there!)
Then after colouring in the image with my Promarkers I matted her on to gold glitter card using my deckle edge scissors I trimmed it up and added her to the front.

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you get to join in with us.


Bunny Ears


Today is reminder time over at Bestieschallenge.blogspot.  and because it's nearly Easter I've chosen a themed image for today's card. I will be posting again a bit later so I hope you can come back.

The image I have used for this easel card is img910_2 it is this cute little girl with long bunny ears caring her own bunny. I have coloured her in using my Promarker pens but not her face! that was coloured in using my new Copic pens sent to me by my own Bestie Sandy. So hopefully now my skin/face will be more realistic.

The card is a 5x7 in size. I've curved the front edge using the size up from the stitched cut carrot paper. The green is the opposite side to the carrot paper and the cross hatch paper is a Easter paper too. I added 3 buttons to tie in the image. The flowers are paper on the card front and fabric on the base. I also added a couple of straws, leaves and a heart "hatpin" (on the base behind the small flower) along with a few tiny pearls.
Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you a little later for my next make.

Well "chick" Happy Easter!


Today I'd like to share with you a card I have made for Easter,

This gorgeous little image I picked up last month in store, it is a ready coloured- in image (saves time when its short!) which I re-cut using my stitched die to fit the lovely Joycraft die.
I made the card shape using my Dutch-Doobadoo-Shape Art Stencil which I trimmed off the bottom. To that I added some pink paper after embossing it. Then using both sides of a double sided Easter paper I cut out Wavy Hearts by Verve, balloons, a banner & sprightly Sprigs along with a few stars and a tag from my Mintay-Birdsong-6x6-Paper-Pad .
To finish I added a few fabric flowers 2 small roses and one from Rose-Ribbon-with-Pearl. There was a little space at the bottom so I added my "word" of the moment chick using my new favorite Scrabble-Stamp-Die-Set.
I'd like to share in other challenges,

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy Easter!

Good Morning!

I'm happy to say it's time to start a new challenge over at lilpatchofcraftyfriends.blogspot.  As always we are a 'anything goes' challenge.

This time we have a exclusive sponsored by the lovely team at fredshesaid and I have chosen to use this lovely Tea Cup Pansie Digi  which I have coloured in using my alcohol pens and my newest gift from my BFF some pencils too.

I have made a 6x6 card blank out of some designer cardstock in lavender with a darker vine running over it. Then using the colours in the flowers I cut out 4 corners and a scalloped circle in dark orange and a bright white doily.
I added some gems and a Happy Easter text and we are good to post.

Please pop over to see what everyone else has made (some stunners as always) and then link up your own make you could win a $10 gift voucher to spend in store.

Big Hat Besties

Well it's time to start the month with a new challenge over at bestieschallenge.blogspot. As always we are "anything goes" but we do also have a theme to play along to too and this month it's a good one " girls with big hats or hair pretties" as Bestie fans we will all have one if not more that fill that brief.

Here is what I have come up with today,

I have made this 5x7 birthday card using this gorgeous Fancy Pants Little Pixie with new boots. I have coloured her in using my alcohol pens and then cut her out using a Spellbinder Die.
 I've used a sheet of paper I was given which has the lace & butterfly printed on it. Then matching up a couple of other papers from my stash after stitching around the edges I put them down at angles and placed her on top.
I have added a wooden butterfly (once I coloured it )to one corner and a sheer pale green ribbon with metal button to the other. The happy birthday sentiment is from a stamp.

Thanks for stopping by today, please join in with the fun as you could win some super digis.

Love is in the Air!

Hello There!

Today being the 1st February it's time to share a new card for the challenge over at Besties International  As always it is a "anything goes" one but we do always have a theme and this month of February it is of course LOVE in fact it is "love is in the air" so it could be anniversary, wedding etc!

So here is my make for today,

This is a square card in bright white. Then using 4 different papers from a paper pad I won last year from by Echo Park called Summer Bliss I set about matting and layering the card up. I have used this pretty little image called  Bows and Kisses 
and coloured her up using my Promarker Pens, then I cut her out using a Spellbinder Die. I also used the SB filigree heart die too.
To finish the card off I added a tag using a Verve Stamp and flowers from Crafteezee.  I also added sequins, little wooden hearts and a couple of brads from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by today.

I'm sharing today also over at Noordesign-uk.blogspot. February-challenge

Baby It's Cold Out There!

Here is the card I made for our reminder post on the challenge over at Besties International challenge 
We are as always  anything goes but we also have a theme should you wish to join in with that and this month it is Baby It's Cold. If your a winner (and we have some great images to choose from) you could also be our Guest Designer soon.
For this card I used img 180 and I coloured her in using Promarker pens.

Here is a view of the side, showing the green flag boarder cut to match the colour of her Ski Jacket.

I cut the front a little shorter to show the green flag boarder. I also wanted to use my new die from Crafters Companion (I have to say this took several attempts but very happy when it finally worked). To hide the join of the blue paper I added satin ribbon. I used a Spellbinder die as the main mat then cut a pale blue one and then added her on to that fussy cutting around her ski's and bobble.
I used a couple of Tim Holtz splat dies in the same card stock as the card including a few break away drops. a couple more white snow flakes and a few baby blue pearls and we are finished.
I do hope you can join in with us, see what the rest of the design team have made also. As always they are great.

I will be joining in with some other challenges too....

A Little Bird Told Me!

Hello There.

Well today being Sunday it's time to share with you all my card for the new challenge over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends .
Peppercus Etsy Shop

 We have a great sponsor this time around  and they are giving away 3 digi images to the winner.

I chose this cute little Owl with balloon it comes black and white ready for you to colour as well as pre-coloured too. As I was making this card close to Christmas I chose to use the beautiful coloured image for speed.

I made the card blank out of pale turquoise bling cardstock and picked out a selection of papers matching the colours used on the image. The sentiments are from two different companies one is Kaisercraft and the other I can't remember infact it could have been in a magazine! A couple of pearls and we were finished. Pre-coloured images are a bonus, if your stuck for time they can give you a head start.

Thanks for stopping by today, pop over and check out the other DT makes and then join us.

For the Mr & Mrs...


Today I'd like to share with you all a card I made for a friend of my husband who was getting married. I've used this lovely precoloured image I picked up at the store a while back. I cut it out using my stitched die and then gathered all my other ingredients which had a soft green to them as well as white.

I decided to cut away some of the front to make the image float. I covered 5inch square in wedding paper from my stash and matted that on to some long forgotten sage green vellum. I added a soft green doily tucking under some deep white lace. I added the image on to that and then added a daisy flower from crafteezee.UK I made a couple from paper beside it and cut out a few leaves in vellum.

The sentiment is by Verve from their Love Everlasting set which is one of my favorites. I placed a couple more open leaves under it. I dotted a few sequins and pearls about the card and we were done. I should add this card is a 7x7 bright white and I stamped some random hearts using the same stamp set as above and tied a piece of shere soft green ribbon around it.

And here is a side view

 Thanks for stopping by today, I'd love to hear what you think.

Happy New Year!


Firstly I'd like to wish you all a Happy New Year! Lets hope 2018 is a great one for us all. Have you made any resolutions? I have and just the one, to be more proactive on my blog!

Today being the 1st of the month means it's the start of a new challenge over at Besties International . As always a "anything goes" one and as always we have a theme too. This month it is Baby it's Cold Outside. We have some great images to be won, so I do hope you will come on over and join in.

Here is the card I made. I know it's not a wintery theme but I wanted to make a New Years card first so my "chilly" card will be aired on the 15th which is our reminder date.

For this card I have chosen to use  "peace, love and Joy" image found here I knew I wanted a pink and black theme to my card so I set to finding just the right papers and then I coloured her in using my trusty Promarker pens.
I do hope you can come and join in with us this time around.
