Tilda and bird

I coloured Tilda in front of the fence using Copics and matched it to these gorgeous digi papers called Buttercup by Christa and did lots of inking and layering and 3-d the flowers and stuck little jewels in the centre of them. Greeting is a stampendous one.

Finished Book

I love the BIA!!! It worked first time and I am thrilled with how this has turned out. With hindsight I could have probably made more pages but I was in a rush to get it finished!

Taken this afternoon. I am going to make this into a canvas for my daughter.

Ryan's creation

Ryan and I had a fab class at Crafts U Love this morning with the lovely Wendy and this is what Ryan created. I am so proud of him, he had a lovely time and really enjoyed making this card with the Cricut Expression.

My crafting buddy

I am so excited, my eldest Grandson Ryan who is almost 10 is coming to a Cricut Expression class with me on Saturday morning at Crafts U Love he loves to make cards and loves my Cricut so I am sure we will have a blast! Can't wait, will post photos of what we make after the event.

Jungle card

I love these new High Hopes stamps and had such fun colouring them in. I must be doing it sort of ok as the kids said "Wow Mum that colouring is just like the artists do with no lines in it, we used to watch Art Attack and wonder how he did that"!!! Bless them!!! I used both copics and prismas and sansador and distressed the edges of the papers which are BG Phoebe. I cut the monkeys hand so that he is holding his banana too!!!

Couple of cards for today

I had an anniversary card to make so used the spring card template I got from The Crafty Cow and BG Phoebe papers. The sentiments I made myself. The coffee card is a mix of digi papers, house mouse image and again sentiment created myself.

PTW challenge Box by Claudia

Claudia set the challenge for PTW and it is this box, soooo cute! I was inspired by Steph to make mine to store my stamped images in, thanks Steph! I made the bigger version but the smaller one is just as cute. Go and take a peek and have a go, it is really easy!!

Fab stamps!!!

I saw this gorgeous stamp on Leonie's blog earlier and asked her who made them. She very kindly got back to me straight away and told me they were Catslife Press stamps so I went looking! Unfortunately none of the UK stockists had the ones I wanted so I ordered direct from them but am so glad I did, the unmounteds are SO cheap and if you order all unmounteds the postage is half price so $5 - amazing!!!!! I ordered a few and just love them! I got an email almost straight away with a Paypal invoice, such quick and fab customer service - but then it IS America!!!

Mini cards and box

I saw this being made on The Crafty Cow last Friday by Sam and thought it would be ideal for me to give to my daughter full of baby cards that she can use to thank people etc.

The mini cards are hinged at the front and decorated with ribbon and an image and they fit into the box with the mini envelopes just nicely :)


I just wanted to thank those of you who have given me awards recently. I really do appreciate it and thank you for taking the time to read my blog and do this. With the baby arriving I have not had time to sit and sort them all out but they are all very much appreciated and very special thanks again for them!!

Copic storage box

I wanted a way to store them all to hand next to the colour chart so I could grab each one as I wanted it so covered a small cardboard box with Junkitz paper and a couple of Hanglar images and hey presto! Thanks to Samm for the idea although I didn't use a cat food pouch box in the end!!
