A day never to forget!

Just a normal Friday, right?! Right, but for me two big milestones happened in my baby's life (oh I say baby in the wider sense of the word cos she's growing up fast). Now, she's been a chatter for quite a few months, but has been a big time bum shuffler too! I mean who wants to walk when you can go at lightening speed on your bum? Ok, she does cruise a bit but generally panics if she leaves go...BUT today she's managed her first 3 steps all on her own! WOW! Hope that this is the start of the walking cos my back is bloody breaking lugging her around now! And the second thing, well she managed to eat a WHOLE yoghurt where most of the stuff actually went where it was supposed to! YEAH! So truly a day never to forget for me.

Speaking of not forgetting, did I mention that there's a fab new release out over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps...meet Val, the cutest little elephant...
You really need to check out this release, cuteness with a capital C!!!

Favourites

Hi peeps! Oh thank goodness January is over with...not my favourite month BUT I do have a few favourites to share with you today. Our new challenge chosen by the lovely Nic at Passion for Promarkers is SHOW US YOUR FAVOURITES! So I dug one of the first stamps I ever bought out, a rubber stamp from Penny Black none the less...
I don't get much time to craft with these stamps but I still love them! Especially these cute bears (despite not liking colouring fur). And well, me being me, it's got to be CAS! Love it! Oh...and sparkles and my Promarkers, of course!

You can join in the challenge, but you must use your Letraset markers (Promarkers, Flexmarkers etc). We have 2 generous sponsors for this challenge: Di's Digi Stamps (voucher to spend in the online store) and Letraset (Pack of 5 Markers). So get crafting and... SHOW US YOUR FAVOURITES!

Starbright

Just sharing my card using one of the new digital stamps from Little Miss Muffet Stamps, here she is...Polka Dot Pals Starbright...
 She is super adorable, right?! I've gone for slightly more embellishment today, but still fairly CAS. I've coloured her with Copics...although my colours are rather limited. Stars, string and sparkles complete the look. Join our Little Miss Muffet Stamps Facebook Group for more inspiration. Thanks for popping by xx

Crafting Timeslot

Hi! Firstly thank you to my friends who pop by my blog, I have not had time these last few months to visit your blogs much, my time is taken up more and more with a certain little person, so blogging (and crafting) have had to take a backseat. So thanks for sticking with me...

Today I have a card to share for the new challenge we have over at Passion for Promarkers...FLOWER POWER! Now, as you know, I like my CAS cards, and I can just about complete one in my weekly crafting timeslot! So here's mine for today...
The beautiful floral image is a rubber stamp, from Penny Black. It's rare that I use rubber stamps these days, but I have lots from Penny Black and this is one of my favourites. The wording is from a clear stamp set by Artemio, it means "from the bottom of my heart" in French. Colouring is promarkers, and then some doodles and gems to finish.

Our sponsors today are:
Michele R Designs - 10 euros voucher to spend in the online store
Letraset - A 6 pack of neon markers

Don't forget to use Letraset products if you want to be eligible for our prize draw.

Stamp: Christmas Color - Penny Black, Clear Sentiment Set - Artemio, Colouring - Promarkers

All wrapped up for winter!

Oh my goodness...how chilly it's been today! We even had a flurry of snow which then turned to sleet then rain...I HATE that kind of weather!
So here's a little card I made, all warm and cosy in my craft room...
This is Celeste Amberglow Winter Woods by Pollycraft, available as a digital stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. I just love her foxy friend! I had a bit of a nightmare colouring this little lady, I used a different card stock to what I usually use and my Copics bled!!! I almost threw my half coloured picture out but decided to try to rescue her using my Derwent coloursoft pencils, and I think it's not turned out too bad. Not to self...don't change cardstock in future if using alcohol markers! The card is very CAS, just a few doodles and sparkle!

Paris in Promarkers

Happy New Year!!! Hope 2016 will be a fabulous year!

I'm kicking off my crafting this year with a card made for our new MONOCHROME challenge (you can also use hair and skin colour) at Passion for Promarkers...
This gorgeous image is from our generous sponsor All Dressed Up...its called Paris...I love this! I wanted the focal point of my card to be the image so all i have added is a little doodling and the "Amitie" sentiment. Simply coloured with Promarkers. 

So why not join us at Passion for Promarkers this week?

Hope you've had/are having a fabulous Christmas! Here's a little card I made tonight once little one was in bed...
This is Polka Dot Pal Neva from Little Miss Muffet Stamps...love her! Colouring is with Copics. The gorgeous sentiment is a free digital Christmas tag from Holley Maher...love these! I added some doodling around the card to match that on the tag. 

Best Wishes to all my blogging friends xxx
