Young Butterfly.

A card for a friend today. I used K and Co paper and an acetate butterfly with stickles added. I hope she will like it.


I think my Mum will approve of this thank you card not only does it have a cute house mouse but it also has thanks written in many languages. Maybe I should now get on with the rest of her mega long list!!

Birthday Rules

My friend asked me to make a card for a friend but she only told me his age and name the rest was up to me to make up! So here is what I ended up making! The backing papers and the "birthday rules" are all from Hot off the Press. The name is written with white rub on letters.

More Cards

More cards for my Mum's little box. As you can see she was running short of thank you and sympathy cards!!! I used some house mouses as I know how much Non likes them. Added touches are a few diamonds, ribbons and sparkles with a sukura pen.

Bunch of Cards

Here a few general cards my Mum asked me for to restock her little box! Simple little cards but good fun to make.

Girly Card

I can't believe Ella is 3!! But she is and my Mum asked for a card for her - so here it is - and it's mega girly!! I hope this hit's the spot!

Just Think!

Another card off my Mum's mega list! Background paper is Hot off the Press to which I added a strip of vellum. I then cut a tag on my sizzix and added yet more vellum. The image was then stamped in black stazon and glittery gel pen and acrylic glittery spots were added. I finished the card off with a name made from K & co letters and a peel off border to cover where I had put the tape to stick the vellum down!

Having a Laugh!

Another card made with my jokey stamps this time finished off with some circles cut with my nesties and some pretty card candy.

Black, White and one Other!

This weeks My Time to Craft challenge is " black, white and one other colour!" so I chose pink - well I would wouldn't i? I stamped the background with black stazon and added stickles.

I did the same with the imagine but I added glittery gel pen to the letters. It's finished off with bindi's, gems and some spotty ribbon.

Here is a card for my Father in Law. I try to keep them nice and simple for him. But I also wanted to make him smile!

Friday, 24 April 2009


Well my Mum has sent me a MEGA list again so I thought I'd better make a start or she would start to complain! So here is the first one! The background paper is from a free pack with one of the magazines this month. Some fab papers in this pack and usually I store them away on the shelf for another day but not this time! Wonders will never cease. Knowing my Mum's love for my butterflies I thought maybe I should use some to keep her quiet! Hopeshe likes it!

E is for ......................................

This weeks challenge over on Linda's Alphabet Challenge blog is "E" Here is my effort! E for elephant and elegant edging. I couldn't come up with anything else.

What A latte!!

How's this for a card filled with Caffeine? I think I might have got a little carried away! Maybe I haven't had enough cups myself today!

Dew Drops

Look at the fab candy I got in the post yesterday from Aimee - The little bottle is full of little dew drops - well as you can imagine I was keen to get playing but I have had little time!!! So eventually this afternoon I found a couple of minutes and made the little card.

Just look at those pretty dew drops on the scallops of the mini card.

So I have one more thing to say and it is "Big Thank You Aimee! You made my day! "

Vintage Atc's

I'm on a roll - I thought while I was getting up to date I might as well get myself ahead! So here are the atc's for Mays swap which is vintage. I used this cute little elegant lady stamp.

Flower Atc's

Yesterday Lesley held my arm up my back and told me to get on with the atc's for Aprils swap! So I thought I'd better get on with them! Here they are!


This weeks Challenge on "My Time to Craft" is "Metallica" so here is mine! I used as many metal things as I could think of.

Square Cards Galour!

Inbetween ironing, washing and hoovering today I have managed to make a few cards. Wonder what I like doing best? I'm beginning to see the bottom of this stack of hot off the press papers too - fear not there is much more where that came from!!!!

Sunday, 19 April 2009


More of my new Hot off the Press stamps and an inkadinkadoo stamp too! Stamped in vintage sepia versafine and highlighted with a sukura gel pen. Finished of with a metal curl, some ribbon and metalic stickers.

Jump Frog Jump!

A froggy card again! Well I needed a playing treat after doing the footy card so I played with some frogs! Here is the result.

Footy Card

A card for an order - I'm not keen on football so I struggle a bit with these! So this is the best I could come up with.

D is for Daisy

This weeks letter on Linda's Alphabet Challenge blog is D. So I went for daisy! Using Linda's daisy design and filling the middle of the flower with gems. Then I stamped the swirl down the edge and heat embossed it in gold.

Fly Away

I've made this card with some new Hot off the Press stamps. Sparkle has been added with a sukura gel pen, some bindi's and gems.

My Time to Craft

This weeks my time to craft challenge is a sketch by Becky. Here is my take on it!


I treated myself to some cute frog stamps and here is one of them! Well I think he is cute! I heat embossed him so he was easier to colour in. Some more of my pile of Hot off the Press paper and I also used the very last bit (I think it is anyway!)of the green spotty Funky Fairy paper I had printed off.

Tuesday, 14 April 2009


Here is another square card using up the sheet of spotty green card I downloaded from Funky Fairy's. Fab paper so I had to use it.

Lydia's Birthday

Lydia's birthday a few days ago and here are the card and note book I made for her.

Dare to be Square

This weeks Funky Fairy Challenge is "Dare to be Square" so I dared and I am square! The background paper is from the funky fairys and the stamped images are from Crafty Individuals. I edged everything with krylon gold leafing pen.

"C" Skinny

Linda's Alphabet Blog Challenge this week is "C". So I made a skinny - the cat is one of Linda's designs and the first of my C's. I stamped and embossed it in gold. Then I added a crown with added jewels - my second C. The corner embossed in gold is another of Linda's designs and my final C.
So 3 C's in all !!

Meet Latte!

Here is our gorgeous hamster Latte. Adda took this photo of her and it was so very cute I just had to make a page of her. The paper is Basic Grey and I cut the centre shape on my cricut.


This card is made with some of Linda Luckin's fab stamps (well actually these ones do belong to me but Linda designed them!)

Such fab stamps really don't need much doing to them but I have added a touch of sparkle to the images with a sukura gel pen.

More Green

Another green card made with a Funky Fairy download. I down loaded this bird paper yesterday for the challenge and printed it off so today I decided to use some of it! I outlined the bird with white gel pen.

Busy Busy Busy!!

I think I got carried away! But at least I have used some more papers from my very big supply! All these cards are similar but all slightly different!


This weeks My Time to Craft challenge is "Denim" So I went with denim type paper! I stamped the image twice once on white card then onto denim paper. I then cut out her bag, dress and shoes and added them to the coloured image. Blue embellishments were used to finish off the denim look.

Easter Bunny.

My youngest son Philip always swaps easter cards and eggs with a friend at school. So here is the one we made this year. The die cut rabbit and flowers were from a packet of them I bought in Hobbycraft. We added lots and lots of sparkly things as you can see his friend is a girl !!


On The Funky Fairy Challenge website the theme is green. So I made a very green card. The backing paper is green downloaded from the funky fairy website. Then I printed the swirly pattern also from Funky Fairys onto acetate. I then stamped the quote onto the same patterned paper as the background. The butterfly was also stamped onto the same paper and stickles and a bindi were added. The acetate is then held on with some ribbon!

B Tag

For this weeks alphabet challenge it was B it's taken me a while to post my design on my own blog!! Better late than never!!! The butterfly and bees are both Linda Luckin Design stamps. I flocked the bees and stamped the butterfly on acetate and added stickles and a bindi. The letter B was coloured using a gold ink pad then the edges of the tag were coloured using gold leafing pen by krylon.

Boy Oh Boy

I had to make a quick birthday card this evening for one of my son's friends who is having a party tomorrow and I had forgotten! So I made a quick simple card!

Wednesday, 1 April 2009


This is a card for our nephew - never really

know what to put on these cards. So I thought I'd try to make him laugh with these Inkadinkadoo stamps. The name is cut on a cricut.


For Lesley's scrapbook challenge this month you had to use a water photo, something blue, some stitching and a circle. So I did!
