...make lemonade! I love that saying! And, I love lemonade!
This cute little lady is called Mitzi and she's one of the new Polka Dot Pals being released today at Little Miss Muffet Stamps. Well in fact this image is made up of 3 of the new digital stamps, Mitzi is teamed up with this cute Lemonade Stand and also her facial features are added too! There are endless opportunities with these little characters, so pop by the Little Miss Muffet Blog to see some fab cards the other DT girls have rustled up! As well as the new release, there's a fab Retiring Stamp Sale going on at Little Miss Muffet Stamps so don't miss out...
Mitzi is coloured with Promarkers and Tria Markers from Letraset, and the fab paper, sentiment and lemons were a freebie from Pink Petticoat a few years back... perfect for this image me thinks! I'd like to enter the challenge at...

Cool Christmas

Good morning! Did you all remember to put your clocks back an hour last night or did you get up this morning and wonder why you were the only person in the land of the living?
I've made a card this morning with the extra hour, just for fun :) I had this cute Heather Ellis image printed out and saw the challenge 'Cold Christmas - Blues and Purples' at the Graph'It Marker Blog so thought I'd have a go...
I've coloured with Promarkers... and added my doodles as usual! Hope you all have a lovely Sunday! Thanks for popping by today xx

New Release at Little Miss Muffet Stamps

Hiya Peeps! I've been coughing and snivelling for the past week... so much so I've had to take out shares in Kleenex! I tried staying in bed over the weekend and keeping warm, sipping Lemsip but the dreaded lurgy is clinging on for dear life... so all this kind of inspired today's card (more about that later).

Now you may have seen the sad news last week that Paula has decided to close Pollycraft. Paula reopened a few months ago, and has given us some fabulous new images, but unfortunately, due to personal circumstances, will not be continuing. The Pollycraft shop will close on the 23rd October, so there's still time to grab a few of Paula's cute digis! However, it's not all bad... Paula has designed some super images for Little Miss Muffet Stamps... our New Release today is packed with Pollycraft cuties so get over to the Little Miss Muffet blog and Store for all the details. Here's my card I made using the ever so sweet Swings n' Slides Fireflies stamp...
Don't forget we still have another week to go on our IT'S A DOODLE challenge too!
Hugs xx

Supplies: Pollycraft Swings n' Slides Fireflies - Little Miss Muffet Stamps, Flexmarkers - Letraset, Papers and Bugs have been in my stash forever!

Colours of Halloween

Firstly I just want to apologise for not being able to get around to visit you all... I've had my folks staying with me and wanted to spend as much time as possible with them... I don't get to see them nearly enough :( Now they've gone home I'll be able to resume my crafting and blogging, starting with my DT card for the new challenge at Di's Digi Designs Challenge...
Have you guested what the challenge theme is yet? Well if not, it's HALLOWEEN COLOURS... you don't have to use a Halloween image (I didn't) but you do have to use colours like purple, orange, green and black. I used the super cute Izzy with Pony digi stamp from Di's Digi Stamps... I just thought she'd look fab as a redhead. I coloured with Promarkers. Our kind sponsor this fortnight is Marker Pop who are giving away a $10 gift voucher. For all the details and DT cards drop by the challenge blog.

That's all from me... I'm totally loaded with cold and feel lousy, but if I keep wrapped up warm with a lemsip then I'll be round to visit you all! Have a super weekend :)

Do You Love to Doodle?

Ok, so if there's one thing I do on almost all of my cards it's doodle! I am a lover of doodling! I can't help it... it's like an obsession. I have to fill the blank spaces sometimes and the way I do it is through doodling! I think it gives my cards the "finished" look... if I don't doodle on them then they're not finished! So this fortnight the theme at Little Miss Muffet Challenges is right up my street... IT'S A DOODLE... we want to see your doodling skills!
On my card I've used Casper Silvermist Dude by Pollycraft, available from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. I've kept it CAS, just adding coloured card and a few bits and bobs to resemble a beach scene. I've doodled the lines around the edge of the card and image. If you join in the challenge, you could win yourself some digtal stamps from Little Miss Muffet Stamps! Pop over to the challenge blog for details, and you'll get a peek at the other fabby DT creations!

Snow is Falling

Good morning!
We have a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers today and seeing as we're galloping towards Christmas the theme is Snow is Falling. So we'd like to see lots of snow.
I've gone for a very simple design...
I wanted to make some packs of Christmas cards to give to a few people, but didn't want them to be over elaborate so I kept things really simple, just concentrating on the stamp. I coloured with my Promarkers and even kept the colouring simple, then just added a bit of doodling to finish. The cute Penny Black stamps are some of the first stamps I ever purchased when starting crafting, and I still love them now!

If you want to join in with the challenge don't forget to use your Letraset markers (Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Triamarkers, Aqua Markers, Metallic Markers or Neon Markers). This week we are kindly sponsored by Lili of the Valley who are very generously giving away a £10.00 gift voucher to one lucky, random winner!

Thanks for popping by today :)

Stamps used: Royal Mail, Santa Spotting, Par Avion (all from Penny Black), Colouring: Promarkers (Letraset)
