Squeal!

The Stacey Yacula piggies hit my doormat a couple of weeks ago and I've been playing with them for today's squeal of a card. I've used 2 of the piggies from the set to create a scene and added a sentiment.

Fairy Card Stand

I find masculine cards a real challenge. I love cute images and usually gravitate to the girlie pastel colours, flowers, pearls, pretty papers and satin ribbons which probably doesn't help either!  Therefore I've opted for a very girlie card with lots of frilly embellishments today.  I'd love for you to pop over to the As You Like It Challenge this week to tell us whether you prefer masculine or feminine cards.

  • Sky: Tumbled Glass
  • Purples: Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord

Selfie Smile

I really love this set of Picture Perfect stamps from MFT. The images are much larger than I expected (based on other MFT stamp sets) so they're great as a focal image.  I've used one of the sentiments from the same set on another simple layout.

  • Cat: Pumice Stone, Black Soot

Bunny Duo

I've got a pair of matching cards featuring the soon-to-be-released new cuties from Lili of the Valley.  The sentiments are from the same set which are being released on 15 May in celebration of LOTV's 15th birthday.  There will be both rubber and digi versions so put it in your diary!  There are some adorable images. I hope you like my two little bunnies. I'll sneak a peek of another image over the weekend.

AYLI 6th Anniversary Tag & Blog Hop

When I started As You Like It Challenge I could only hope that it would be popular so I can hardly believe that today is our 6th anniversary. I've got a super team who I'm so proud of every fortnight, including several ladies who've been with me from the start!

To celebrate our anniversary we're having a little blog hop and there's an extra prize on offer in addition to our usual challenge prize.  Make sure you visit each of my teamies and leave a little love in the comments for them, then leave a comment on the main challenge blog to qualify for the blog hop.

Our challenge this week is to create something other than a card, so I've opted for a gift tag. I love wrapping presents and attaching a little homemade tag to my gift.  I also love these oversized tag dies - they're great to still include a full stamped image and some embellishments so it's a fussy and fancy creation too!




Don't forget to visit my lovely teamies, and then leave a comment on the challenge blog:

Picture Perfect

This is one of a pair of cards I've created using some of the MFT Picture Perfect stamps. Today's is a bitter-sweet card, because when I coloured the image, I specifically chose the fur colours to represent my two furbabies, ginger tom Arnie and calico Pickle. But last week I had to say a final heartbreaking goodnight to my sweet baby Arnie.  Seeing him 'waving' on this card is a lovely way to honour him, because he was always keen on a snuggle and the sentiment is perfect!  



I may have taken the odd one or two (hundred) photos of my sweet baby boy in the past, so I do have lots of pictures of him to keep his memory alive!  Sleep tight little one. I miss you so much. 




Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:
  • Ginger Cat: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs 
  • Calico Cat: Pumice Stone, Black Soot, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs
  • Ears: Tattered Rose, Tea Dye
  • Sky: Scattered Straw
  • Ground: Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge

Wedding Card Stand

Happy Star Wars Day!!!

I'm popping in today because we attended the wedding reception of an ex-colleague of hubby's last weekend and I had to make a hot-off-the-press card because someone forgot to tell me we we'd been invited!  (apparently he did tell me a while ago and I just forgot!).  

The image is one I'd generally use as an anniversary or Valentines card, but I thought it was sweet for a wedding card too and I added the date to a mini tag to personalise it.


Water-coloured on Langton Watercolour paper with Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers:
  • Browns: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs 
  • Skin: Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Worn Lipstick
  • Greens: Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss
  • Blues: Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans
  • Reds: Victorian Velvet, Aged Mahogany
  • 'Whites': Pumice Stone, Black Soot
