Fairy Flower Power Daisy with Digital Delights

Hi everyone,

I hope you're all keeping well. 

There's a new challenge at Digital Delights by Louby Loo. As usual it's anything goes as long as it features a stamp (either digital or rubber). 

Here's my little bit of inspiration...


I've used the delightful Fairy Flower Power Daisy but I've coloured her flowers differently to show it doesn't have to just be a daisy. I've used copics and added some glitter magic glitter to the wings and around the heart shape (Tattered lace die). I used paper from the Dovecraft Back To Basics Bright Spark paper pack, which I bought from our local Asda. I chose 3 co-ordinating papers and used black card for the matting. To finish off I added a flower cut using a Sue Wilson die, with a candi in the centre and 3 adhesive pearls to the top corner to balance the flower. I haven't added a sentiment so this could be used for different purposes as it is or a sentiment added later. You can find lots of lovely images, papers and sentiments if you visit the shop HERE.

Anyway, I need to go and help my hubby now. He's been sorting the summerhouse and found a jigsaw which had spilled out of its box. There should be 1000 pieces. We've counted twice and got 1003 pieces!! Now we're gonna have to make the jigsaw to find out what doesn't belong and if we've got all the bits of the original one.

Happy crafting

Surprise Mickey with Digital Delights

Hi everyone.

I hope you're all well and enjoying the summer.

It's time for Challenge #12 at Digital Delights.

As usual it's Anything goes as long as you include a stamp (either digital or rubber). Here's my little bit of inspiration...


I've used the super cute Surprise Mickey Monkey and coloured him using Copics. I combined a couple of backing papers which have been in my stash for years. I got them from a Warehouse which was selling off a load of stock quite a few years ago now. They're from some pads called cardstock Stackers by Generations. I've added some spotty ribbon over the join, matted everything with red card from my stash and finished off with a couple of Spellbinder stars with a small blue brad in the middle.

I hope you'll pop over to the challenge HERE and check out the fabulous inspiration from my talented team mates.

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

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.

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.

I hope to see you again soon.
