Gorgeous papers with a classic image, what more do you need for a congrats card

Squigglestamps Japanese Dolly image is only 50pence as the store is set to close at the end of the year :(
All the digis are half price so go grab some bargains, when they're gone they're gone!!
I paper pieced the kimono and coloured with promarkers. used my new STampin up punch and found some similar smaller flowers in my stash, the brads are stampin up as well.
Abit of faux stitching to finish off the inside of the card, ( see i actually remembered to photo it this time)

these gorgeous papers were from my friend EVA (waves hello) i loove them.
I am entering this card into Totally Gorjuss's Challenge this week which is Punch and Die (eeek)
Thanks for popping by

Tishy's birthday card - she does love her blues

A little easel card for daughter number two.  Used some papermania blue card base, some prima flowers, my flower xcut border punch, some wee flower gems from my stash and some pretty papermania designer papers again from my stash. The gorgeous butterfly is Anitas.

Haven't been around much, we have been slating the roof, and have half done now, the two dormers went in this last week on the front of the house just the last velux to go now, me and Will will tackle that this weekend and then we can slate the front. hmm, it all takes time and in my case oodles of energy (ZZZZZ) sorry not really that tired but you know where I'm coming from if you have ever done any major diy 'yourself'' hehe.
Kiddies have pretty much found all sorts of fun things to do, the caravan has been a hotspot for mini tea parties (too many sweeties lol) but they have been great.
Hope you have all been keeping well, I will pop round during this week to see everyone. xx

Summer Holidays Rock & Squiggles Stash Attack Challenge

Well I have been MIA for most of the Hols lol.  Guess thats what happens with four kiddies, but its all been good so far. The day looks blue at the moment so we may even get out in the garden today for more than half an hour at a time. 

I have managed to find a wee bit of time for some crafting so here are my offerings:-

This is my stash attack creation for the latest squiggles challenge, I have officially given up with scheduling my stuff as it seems to get lost in the ether methinks.

This card is a 4 x 4 and is made using stampin up card and  the brilliant Jessabelles Flight digi image by Evellina Wikberg, who designs for Squigglestamps.  The leaf and flower are from my stash pile/box/cupboards you get the picture. The sentiment is from TLC Creations (link on my sidebar).

Hope you all are having a great holidays.
Be back real soon with some other projects that I have been playing with.

Squigglestamps Challenge

This fortnight Squigglestamps challenge is 'HOME DECOR'.  We would love you to produce something for the home.  If you use a squigglestamps image then you get two entries for the price of one lol. How brilliant is that, all the more chances to win.

I know, I know I plumped for redecorating a frame, with this gorgeous owlie from the Dinky Ghoulz range available at Squigglestamps.  Owlie is only 25p at the moment, and yes you did read that right.
There are some wonderful new stamps in the pipeline just waiting to be released, but until that time there is a most fantastic SILLY SUMMER SALE ON at SQUIGGLESTAMPS.

Squiggles Challenge and Daisy with flowers so sweet

Hallo everyone, today sees the start of a new squigglestamps challenge, lets hear it for red white and blue, to celebrate the olympics or perhaps for independance day or something completely different, the choice is yours. Pop over and show us your style, we love to see you!
Isn't she lovely, Squigglestamps Daisy with flowers, love this image, and a dream to colour, I have made her quite big as I wanted her to be the focal point of my card.  This is a birthday card (stamped inside, forgot to photo and have already sent lol) for my cousin.
I have used some Queen & Co papers and a small flower punch to cut out co-ordinating flowers. I have also punched out the stars from the other side of the stripy paper (double sided and liked both, don't you just hate it when that happens) and have fixed them to the image area.
The wee blue flowers have some papermania gems and some flower gems fixed to them to add a bit of bling.
I have coloured with my promarkers and have to admit I managed to stop myself from adding too much to the background, kinda like it how it is.

Top Tip Tuesday - Stars and stripes
I love Promarkers - Anything Goes

Delicious Doodles zebras, so so delicious

Beautiful image this by Delicious Doodles. I have made this card using some of my new papermania papers and some black bazill card. The black and white checked ribbon is from my stash as are the pretty butterflies. The gorgeous large flowers are also papermania, as is the wee black one under the buttons.
The buttons have been attached using some hemp.

The sentiment is from Stampin Up and the die is also from SU. I used a scrap of organza ribbon to make a bow as I felt it needed something as it floated around in the black space.

Simply layered the inside area.

Took an extra photo when the sun briefly came out. xx

yummy cupcakes haha not!

I was going to say with a cherry on top, but actually they had sprinkles (chocolate and hundreds and thousands). Tishy and I had some fun, well mostly Tishy, I didn't get much of a look in if I'm truthful.
So no pictures of the cupcakes, can you guess why, can you???
I came back to the kitchen after spending the best part of an hour in the utility room sorting washing, hanging it up, folding, putting away, you know the drill, boring!! but has to be done 'the washing fairy was here' written in softener across the white walls. lol.xx
So bet you guessed eh?  Not a cakey in sight.  Now I know that I have lost almost a stone in weight through not eating too many bad things etc etc.  But they had only left me crumbs :(:(
So so sad. Hxx

make it crafty boot house love it!

Used some fun freebie papers and some SU card and dps scraps for matting up. Add a fun Happy Birthday sticker which sparkles and some wee green brads. Coloured with Promarkers and SU Pens, popped on a scrap of ribbon cut into three and bradded into place.

Close up, although am wondering if camera is on its way out lol x.

Sweet Pea 'Frame it' Challenge at Sweet pea stampers

I have used some glorious summer papers called Beach Babe from a whole 6 x 6 pack that I got free with my favourite crafting magazine - Cardmaking and Papercraft.
I mainly used the colours green yellow and blue, but added a splash or two of pink as it made the other colours pop too!

'Pale moon' by Chou ching kuik.
Used my flower punches and leaf punch from x-cut and plenty of gems and stickles.
I coloured with my trusty promarkers and even did a little paper tearing (ooh, I hear you gasp, not my norm, but sometimes I get carried away, no white jackets in sight, heaves a sigh of relief)
