Carolling Fun #1

You've probably seen that today is the final day Lili of the Valley are selling digis because they're reverting back to rubber stamps and physical paper pads.  I've been playing with one of the new sets.  This one's aptly named 'Carol Singing' and I've combined 3 of the images in the set to create a little festive scene.  The Winter Pastel papers are from the new release and the sentiment is from another of the new stamp sets called Bauble Bears.

Summer Flower Tilda

Summer is definitely my favourite season of the year. I love the warmth of the sunshine and the long light days.  Unfortunately we're coming to the end of it now and it's certainly starting to feel colder.  We relented this week and have had the heating on since Tuesday!

We're asking what your favourite season is at As You Like It Challenge and I've used this colourful floral image, papers and embellishments to represent summer.

Honey Pot Thanks

I love this stamp set from W Plus 9. The bears remind me of a certain 'silly old bear' and I've used two different bears from the set along with the log, beehive (hanging from the tree) and a worried bee!  It's a simple card layout with just a die cut border and sentiment.

Puppy Power

For someone who's usually more a 'cat person', I couldn't resist these puppies when I saw them and just 'had' to have them!

Sending Hedgehugs

A quick post tonight with a card I made last week and had decided I wasn't going to post it, but I came home tonight and figured I'd make a last ditch attempt for the MFT challenge. I decided I've nothing to lose (except my pride, which is long gone!). 

For someone who doesn't really like green, I seem to have used it a lot recently!

Bunny Pop-Up Box Card

I've not made one of these pop up box cards for a while and had to dig out my template (safely filed away!) but they're fun to make. I used my cute bunny bubbles stamp set.  The 'mechanism' for making the inside box 'pop' is just an elastic band and it folds flat for posting which is ideal!




I've attempted a little video - hopefully it shows the pop up mechanism working.

Bear with me ....

We're asking whether you prefer girlie or masculine cards at As You Like It Challenge
this week, and it's got to be cute and girlie for me. I love pretty papers, pinks, and embellishments, as well as cute images, none of which tend to lend themselves to masculine cards!

Sending Hedgehugs

This is one of my favourite MFT stamp sets and for some reason I really prefer colouring it using the no-lines stamping style.  I've inked in the sky using a stencil and the sentiment is from the same stamp set.

Furry and Bright

As soon as I saw the puppies in this stamp set I fell in love with their expressions.  This pup is one of my favourites. I just want to scoop him up and snuggle him!  I kept the design very simple with some pop of colour in the papers and a little pale green ink edged around the card base.

Time spent with cats is never wasted

Although I do like doggies, I'm definitely a 'cat' person so this image from Stamping Bella is perfect for me!  The sentiment is also very true in my eyes!





We have two rescue kitties who are our furbabies.  Here's a picture of them from several years ago, but it's still one of my favourites of them because they both look so content snoozing together.
