Hi everyone. I hope you're all well and enjoying the sunshine.

There's a new challenge at Ruby's Rainbow.

This time we have a recipe for you...
1. Image
2.Patterened Papers
3. Embellishments

Here's my little bit of inspiration...


The image is from a LOTV artpad (Set 25 Magical Fairies). I've cut it using a Tattered Lace Charisma Frame die and edged with Spun Sugar distress ink. The sentiment is from a Spellbinder die cut from glitter card. Finishing touches include some spotty ribbon from my stash and 3 flowers handmade by my best friend Susie (she made me loads at Christmas). 

Now it's your turn. Don't forget out to check out the rest of the design team's inspiration.

Christmas in July with Sparkles

Hi everyone, hope you're all well.

There's a new challenge at Sparkles Monthly Challenges.

It's a nice simple one this time...Christmas in July.

Here's my little bit of inspiration...



The image is from the Daisy Mae Draws Warmest Wishes ready to colour art book from The Hobby House. I've coloured him using copics and added some glitter. I've used a couple of backing papers from my stash, matting with both turquoise and red card. I finished off with an Anita's message tag sentiment. 

You can check out the fabulous inspiration from my very talented team mates and also see what you could win HERE.

Thanks for visiting.

Happy crafting

Meet Fast Food Freddy

Hi everyone.

I'm here to share the delightful Fast Food Freddy with you. He's part of the new release at Digital Delights by Louby Lou.



I've teamed him with a new set of papers called Poppin Fun.

I've used Copics to colour this little cutie, layering with black card from my stash.
I've used Tonic dies and finished off with 4 small navy brads and some twine. A simple card to show off the fab image and sentiment.

To see the rest of the new release at Digital Delights visit HERE.

You won't be disappointed.

Happy crafting

Snowflakes with Sparkles

Hi everyone,
I hope you're all well.

There's a new challenge at Sparkles Christmas Challenges

Our theme for the month is Snowflakes.

I made a card using my first attempt at a crocheted snowflake...


I've fastened the centre of the snowflake using a star shaped brad to a circle of silver shimmer card before gluing the rest of it. I've then set it on foam pads and added it to the striped backing paper from the Winter Wonderland collection by Crafts House. To finish off I added the Winter Wishes sentiment.

I hope you'll join in. You could win a great prize...
very generously donated by my Team mate Sandra.

Thanks for visiting.
I hope to see you again soon.

Grilling Percy with Digital Delights Challenge #11

Hi everyone,
I hope you're all well.

It's time for a new challenge at Digital Delights.

Here's my little bit of inspiration...


I've used the super cute Grilling Percy together with the fabulous Grillin and Chillin digital paper pack. I've coloured Percy using Copics and made his apron co-ordinate with the papers, matting with black card from my stash and adding ribbon and a bow as the finishing touch. I cut Percy out with a Tonic die and edged the panel with Black Soot distress ink.

I hope you'll join us for this challenge. Don't forget to check out the great inspiration from my very talented team mates and have a look at the awesome shop HERE. You don't have to use a Digital Delights image to enter but we love it when you do. Can't wait to see all the fantastic entries. You could win a gift voucher to spend in our shop.

Thanks for visiting. I hope to see you again soon.

Hip to be square with Ruby's Rainbow

Hi everyone.

There's a new challenge at Ruby's Rainbow.
The theme is Hip to be square. We'd like to see a square base card.

Here's my little bit of inspiration...


I've used a LOTV image from the Bunnies artpad and teamed it up with some papers from my stash. I also found the sentiment tag in my stash and thought it went perfectly. I've added some ribbon and pearls as finishing touches.

Now it's your turn. I can't wait to see your fabulous projects.

Happy crafting

Wedding/Anniversary/Engagement with Sparkles

Hi everyone,

There's a new challenge at Sparkles Monthly Challenges.

Our theme this month is When you marry in June.

We'd love to see your wedding, anniversary or engagement makes.
I chose to make an anniversary card...


I've used a LOTV image from the Cute Cottage Garden artpad, which I've cut using Tattered lace dies. I embossed the front of the card blank using a mask which came free with Simply Cards & Papercraft at some point. I matted the image using Core'dinations Nostalgia Sandable card, adding some ribbon which came from The Hobby House, which is also where the charm came from. I finished off with a circadesign sentiment and a few pearls.

Our sponsor this month is the fabulous Bugaboo


Thanks for visiting. I hope to see you again soon.
