Mega Christmas Challenge

Hi! Happy Christmas Eve... sometimes I think the build up is more magical than THE DAY itself! Are you all wrapped and ready? I'm not... some wrapping for me to do later! Last minute as usual! Anyway my card today is for the MEGA CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE over at Passion for Promarkers, which runs until January 7th... all you have to do is include a sentiment (oh and you don't have to make a Christmas card)...
Remember to be eligible to win a prize you must use your Letraset markers! For my card I've used this cute stamp I got in the January sales... Boofle from Papermania. I used my Tria markers to colour him. The sentiment is an old one from Do Crafts. I'd like to enter my card at Allsorts Challenge - Brown with Blue/Aqua and also Aud Sentiments Challenge - Christmas.

Christmas Comeback

Ok, so I've been MIA for a while... there's a long story behind this but lets just say I have not been feeling myself, and have not been able to craft, or do much for the last month or so. However, hopefully things will get better now and I'll be able to spend more time crafting and blogging!

So my first card after over a month is for Little Miss Muffet Stamps, as we have an inspirational post over on the Little Miss Muffet Stamps blog today! I've used one of the cute Dexter images from Pollycraft called "Dexter in Love"...
I just love these images, they are so cute and a joy to colour! There's a few in this series, so make sure you pop by Little Miss Muffet Stamps to check out all the others! I added the sentiment on the PC (hope hubby likes it)! I ordered the ponsettia dies a while ago on Joanna Sheen, but as I haven't crafted, this is the first (and perhaps only) Christmas card I've added them to! Maybe I'll get more use out of them next year? I coloured using Letraset markers.

Make sure you pop by the Little Miss Muffet Stamps blog to see all the inspiration from the other DT girls!

Hopefully it won't be too long until I'm back into the swing of things :)

Just to let you know I'm not feeling too good at the moment, which is why I have been MIA lately... hope to be back with you all very soon 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)

All Washed Out

Hi folks... that's how I'm feeling at the moment, a little washed out! Not sure why, just got a bit of the blues. I made a card but the old mojo is off wandering again, so it just didn't come out the way I'd planned it...
It's my DT card for the new challenge over at Di's Digi Designs Challenge... SHOW OFF THOSE COLOURING SKILLS! I've used the super cute WASHDAY digi stamp from Di's Digi Stamps and coloured with Promarkers.

We're sponsored by The Cutting Café, so make sure you join in if you fancy winning a prize! You can also win some digis from Di's store... all the details are on the Challenge Blog!

Autumn or Fall?

To me it's Autumn... but It's Fall over at Di's Digi Designs Challenge... Fabulous Fall Colours to be exact! Here's my DT card...
However, I took the picture late last night in artificial light so it's not the best representation of the colours... in real life the bear does not look like he's been tango-ed! I've used the super cute Gardening Pop from Di's Digi Stamps, he's coloured with Promarkers. Our kind sponsor this fortnight is Crafty Ribbons, and there's also some digi stamps up for grabs from Di for anyone using one of her images!

Pink and Grey... My Complexion After A Session On My Bike!

Like pink? Well you're gonna love this fortnight's challenge at Little Miss Muffet Challenges! We've got a PINK & GREY colour combo for you, here's my DT card...
I've used Leilani, one of the gorgeous Polka Dot Pals from Little Miss Muffet Stamps... I've added her facial features as she comes "expressionless" for you to add one should you wish to. Why not join in the challenge and you could win yourself some digi stamps of your choice from Little Miss Muffet Stamps!

Well that's it... another year (and one day) older! I don't know where the time goes, this year has just flown by. So, my Birthday meal... firstly hubby didn't cook... which I was disappointed at, but he did take me out for lunch, which was lovely, and he bought me some great presents... nothing crafty but instead some things to fuel my new passion - cycling. I got a bike for my Birthday last year, but only recently started using it, so in the last 6 weeks I've started 'proper' road cycling. I'm on a mission to get fitter and lose weight... well that was the plan but my body has other plans! Losing weight I am NOT! Why?!!! Everyone just says "muscle weighs heavier than fat blah blah"... well in that case I must look like a female version of Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator! That's all I'm saying... I'll be back!

Perfect Pets

Hello blogging friends! Today at Passion for Promarkers it's my turn to chose our theme... and being an animal lover I've chosen PERFECT PETS, so let us see your cats, dogs, horses, mice, hamsters, fish etc on your creations. Here's my DT card...
Hubby nearly keeled over when I dug out this stamp from Lili of the Valley (he bought it for me ages ago)... he even asked if my ink had dried up as I've done so many digis lately! But no, I still have my Memento and trusty rubber stamps... they just don't get used so much these days. And I LOVE this cute stamp called Me & My Pony, it's one of my favourite LOTV stamps (I drew the brick wall though as it's not part of the stamp). I teamed it up with these gorgeous papers from my pal Faye... thank you so much, they're really special, button twine and ribbon and a few pearls. I coloured with my Letraset Promarkers and Flexmarkers.

Our kind sponsor this week at Passion for Promarkers is Michele R Designs... pop by the challenge blog for details on the prize and also to check out the four legged (and finned) cuteness the other DT girls have created! Thanks for popping by today!

Golden Wedding

Hiya folks!
Just thought I'd pop by to share the Golden Wedding Anniversary card I made for my MIL & FIL recently, it's very different for me but my MIL loves vintage so she was really pleased with it. I also added several pages of verse inside (but no piccies of that). Here's the card...
I don't often make complex cards as I always struggle to know what to add and where... but I think this one turned out ok. The fab image was sourced from The Graphics Fairy, what a great site!
Thanks for popping by... hugs xx

Today's Recipe...

Hey! How are things going? Are you feeling a little down as the Summer starts to draw to an end... I am! The sun is still shining here, but there's a definate nip in the air first thing in the morning {sigh}
I have a recipe for you today... card recipe that is ;) Well actually it's the lovely Nic's recipe from Passion for Promarkers Challenge, here's my card using the RECIPE (1 image, 1 sentiment, 3 papers and 3 embellishments)...
Now, as you know I'm a bit of a CAS girl, so my 3 embellishments are the same, just there's 3 of them (pearls)! You can also interpret the recipe by using 3 different embellishments, as you wish! Check out the other lovely DT girls' creations and you'll see what I mean. Our kind sponosr this week is Bugaboo Stamps, who are giving away some of their fab digi stamps to one lucky winner!

Right, that's about it for today, back tomorrow, bye for now!

Hello... I have been a bad blogger recently... LIFE is getting in the way of blogging and crafting at the mo!
BUT... I am here to share the fantastic news that we have a new Pollycraft release at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and it's CUTE! Here is my card using Swings 'n Slides mermaid...
Told you she was a cutie! I coloured her up with Flexmarkers and Trias... and I have now put glitter on her but took the picture before I had the idea to add the glitter... DOH! I found the sentiment on the net... definately to remind myself and make me feel better! The bubbles and seaweed are doodled and coloured with Derwent Coloursoft Pencils. Finally I added a couple of pearls to finish.
There are some really cute images in this release so don't miss it... pop by the Little Miss Muffet Blog for more fab DT creations and more info! Don't forget there's still time to enter the LMM Design Team Call... it closes this Sunday so be quick!
