Shhh Mammy, fairies are sleeping!

Hi everyone! I went for a little walk in the woods recently with Darcie (she's just turned 2) and we saw some mushrooms under a tree. As she was being a little loud, I told her she had to be quiet as not to wake the sleeping fairies, who lived under the mushrooms. So yesterday I was chopping mushrooms to put into my bolognese sauce and she put her finger to her lips and said "No Mammy, shhh, fairies are asleep!" Hence my card today using CLOVER I BELIEVE by Pollycraft, available at Little Miss Muffet Stamps...

Tinkle Tinkle...

If I can't have some sunshine in my life at the moment then how about the Stars and Moon? Darcie is 22 months now (almost 23 months) and she loves to sing "Twinkle Twinkle"... or should I say "Tinkle Tinkle" as she puts it lol. So I've dusted off my Copics and coloured, despite not feeling myself (don't know if I'll ever feel "myself again"). Anyway, here is the super cute Jr. Hatter Twinkle Scene and Swing on a Star Sentiment, both available in digital stamp format from Little Miss Muffet Stamps!

Stayzon is called that for a reason!

Hiya! Just a share today... a card using the super cute Celeste Amberglow Owl Always Love You by Pollycraft... you can find her at Little Miss Muffet Stamps here... http://www.littlemissmuffetstamps.com/Celeste-Amberglow-Owl-Always-Love-You_p_830.html
Notice the BAD stamping on the sentiment (Penny Black stamp)... I used Versafine and not Stayzon on glitter paper... I knew before I did it that it wasn't good! So my Stayzon had dried up... well I'd better get another one cos a smudged sentiment is not a good look! DOH!

Passion for Promarkers...a little break

Hello friends...

Today there's a new challenge over at the Passion for Promarkers blog, the lovely Marie has chosen "Make it Digital"...she'd like you to use a digital element on your card (image, sentiment, papers or all three). For me, this will be my last card for a little while as part of the Passion for Promarkers team (I'm having some health problems at the moment which are effecting everyday life, including crafting)...
I've used a digital set I bought a while back from Pink Petticoat (sadly no longer trading), the image, sentiment and papers are all digital). I used my Promarkers to colour the image and my Letraset fineliner for the doodles.

Our generous sponsor this week is 2 Cute Ink, who are offering the lucky winner 3 digi images of their choice. Remember though, you must use your Letraset products to be in with a chance to win (and name the products you've used in your post).

Ok, that's it from me...I'll still be posting my Little Miss Muffet Stamps card on fridays, but will otherwise be taking a break from crafting/blogging. Thank for taking the time to visit xx

A Little Down...

Hi friends...for those that still visit...

I'll start with my Passion for Promarkers card, which should have been posted on Tuesday but I have not been too good recently so, well, it's late. The challenge this week is a BINGO BOARD, chosen by the lovely Lisa, here it is...
[Lisa%2527s%2520bingo%2520board%255B4%255D.jpg]
Lisa would like you to chose a line (any direction) and include those things on your card. To be in with a chance to win our fab prize, you must, of course, use your Letraset products and state which ones you used in your blog post. Our super sponsor is DigiStamp Boutique, who kindly supplied the beautiful image and sentiment I have used on my card...
[Shelly%2520-%2520bingo%2520board%255B4%255D.jpg]
I've coloured with my Promarkers, and added the doodles using my Letraset fineliner, then coloured the foliage with my Promarkers again. A couple of gems finish off my card, very CAS.

My second card for today's post is using one of the new Swings 'n Slides digital stamps from Little Miss Muffet Stamps...FROGGY...
This time I've coloured with Copics. You can find lots of other LMMS inspiration over on our Facebook group, or the challenge blog!

As I said earlier in the post, I haven't been feeling the best lately, so my blog posts are lack lustre, sorry. Morale isn't great at the mo :-(

Take care x

White, Dark, Milk or all three?

Hmmm...well that's the choice of chocolate eggs I have left in my house! I shouldn't really eat any but it would be rude not to, seeing as they're there! They've inspired my card today too...
This is Polka Dot Pals Lottie from Little Miss Muffet Stamps...she is such a sweetie! So I've coloured her hair with my Copic Ciaos to match my chocolate addiction! I'm going to enter her into the Copc monthly challenge on FB...the theme is HAIR! The Copic colours I used for her hair are E29, E33, E35, E47, E51 and 100.

Valentine's Day Inspiration...

Hey peeps! Some last minute Valentine's Day inspiration, I have another elephant card to share today...I'm loving the cute Val character over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps at the moment, this is Val Gives...
Now you can't say she's not cute...and if you love elephants well...how can you resist? Such lovely images to colour too...not too fiddly, just how I like it!

My iphone died this week...PANIC STATIONS doesn't come close! The phone would not switch on and everything (yep EVERYTHING) had disappeared into thin air! Luckily I have another phone but I spent all evening trying to retrive my stuff from icloud, which wasn't working, and then PING... it worked at midnight! Phew, the relief! Lesson learnt...make multiple backups! Oh technology, whatever happened to memorising a few phone numbers?

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!!!

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?
