My lil girlie

I had to share this pic of my little girl Emmie, altough we call her Lula Belle. As some of you know she made quite an early unexpected enterence to the world, she had her fair share of problems. A few months ago I never thought we would have her home, let alone looking so well, and her she is on top cheeky form blowing rasberries to the dog!

EBay Sale

If you fancy a bargain, head over to EBay, as I have listed some bits and pieces and will continue to add items over the weekend. Most items are 3 day listings.

I have added Copics, a job lot of Little Claire stamp sets, some Pink Gem stamps, Rubber tapestry and so on.

Hope your all enjoying the long weekend. x

Lovely sunshine

Morning, what lovely weather we have had, a whole weekend in the garden - was much needed, I have full respect for the strength of weeds now! lol Our shamefully neglected garden is now a pretty lil picture - and don't my legs know it! lol

I apologise for not posting the candy winner yet, I will give blogger/me one more chance to upload the image otherwise I will just announce it later - I am trying to not let it beat me, but the days are passing!

I have made this card with one of my fave stamps, its so much fun and always makes me smile, I think I was inspired by our lovely blue sky's we have been having. I coloured her with promarkers, mounted the main image with 3d foam pads, then heat embossed the sentiment, and also 3d mounted that. The 1st blue layer of card I stamped a background Penny Black butterfly stamp in versamark to add some pretties. Oh and not forgetting a dousing of glamourdust in her wings!

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
Stamp with fun: Birthday
Cupcake: Lots of layers
Flutterby Wednesday: Fairy
Sir Stampalot: Ladies Fashion
My Mums craft shop: Anything go's & DT call.

Charisma DT - Black, pink & green

Morning, can you believe it is Thursday again, thank you to everyone who stopped by and left lovely comments about my sweet tree - it went down a storm at the weekend.

This week at Charisma the theme is:


It had me a bit stumped to start with this challenge, but I got this lovely new stamp out (which I brought at the craft show at Bristol a couple of weeks ago) I have eyed it up for ages, but seeing it in real life, I had to have it, lol.....

I stamped the image in black ink and used clear embossing powder to make it shine, and drew a boarder around it. I added a green strip of card, a ribbon and some bling gems. It took me about a week to decide what sentiment to add on/be brave enough to add on, as I did not want to ruin it - as I quite like this one! What a wimp, after all, I could have made another!

I will be back later today to like it to some challenges.

Happy Thursday everyone. xxx

Where has the sunshine gone?

Morning, hope you are all well and have enjoyed the oh so lovely weather we have had over the past few days, but where has it gone? It was nice whilst it lasted, but I'm hopeful it will return. We have rain forecast for the day - but it is yet to appear albeit it is very overcast! Anyways, I love this image, I have had the stamp ages, and as I always (normally) make square cards, it has never fitted, but I decided no more - it needs an airing! lol

I love the rich red card, and the DCWV glittered paper, it gives it a bit of a special regal feel. I don't know why I have not used this stamp until now - I'm so daft as it is the perfect image for a male card. I added diamond glaze to the propeller to make it super shiny, and I coloured the craft work card dots with a pro marker to make them match.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.

Papertake weekly: Truly dimentional I have 3d'd the clouds
Wild Orchid Challenges: Wings
Spoonful of sugar: All creatures great and small
C.R.A.F.T: Animals/pets
Allsorts: Anything but a square

2 for Clean & Simple

Two posts in a day, this is what happens when I clean the craft room! lol....
Over at Clean & Simple they have a sketch, I had to play along, I came across my quickcutz snowflake die and a bit of glitter cars, and got cutting.
Here are the two cards I made.
The sentiment was stamped with white ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder with a stamp that came free with a magazine last year.
I am looking forward to batch making this year, I am going to use the lovely big snowflake from cuttlebug.
I would also like to enter these cards into this weeks For Fun Challenge: the theme is Christmas.

A little simple notelet

Happy Monday every one. Another week is here, and were a quater of the way into the new year - scary how fast it's going! It will be Christmas before we know it.

Well I had a little play in my craft room last night, well it did start out as tidying it up, but that did not last long! lol I found these little flowers I have had forever and decided to make a little notelet card, I have these flowers in several colours, and thought I could make several in different colours, they are very quick and simple to make. It's not my most favourite creation, but it;s good fun.

I am entering this card into this weeks Less is more challenge, where the theme is a touch of red.
