Horace and Boo


Found a little bit of crafty time today (I'm mostly busy with crochet at the moment) so I thought I would have a play with the new Horace and Boo collection from Polkadoodles.

I couldn't resist this little cat!

It's Your Happy Day!


It's Saturday so it's a happy day!

I've been playing with some new stamps from My Favourite Things.  And using my new Tim Holtz/Tonic Stamping Tool.  I have to say... it's one of the best tools I have! Stamping results are perfect! 

Just a quick little card!

Another Dragon!


And welcome to Thursday!

Very little time at the moment but it's always good to get some crafty time.. time to play and be creative!  And nothing beats creativity than a play with pens or watercolours.. or anything not ready made!  So here we go with another little dragon.. watercolours again!

I love this stamp set! Just need to get the die cut set now to match it!

Hope your Friday is a quick one!

Mothers Day


Well, now that Mothers Day is past I thought I would post pics of the card I made for my mum this year.  I always struggle to find something different, or an image that is just right. I'm not a fan of pre-printed images or printed verses (although I have enough digi kits and card making software!!) but when it comes to a card for a mum it has to be as special as mums are!

So, I went for something simple outside but with maximum effect inside.  And I was not disappointed by the result when my mum opened it! 

Just plain and simple on the outside (Papers are just gorrrrrrjuss!  Brighton Rock by Clarity Stamp)

And here is the inside! (not that easy to take a photo of but the 3D effect is really nice)

And my Mothers Day?  Spoiled rotten, and a lovely meal out with my family!



Brr, it's a bit colder today considering how lovely and warm it was yesterday!  No wonder there are so many coughs and colds going around!

I've been playing with a new set from Simon Says Stamp called "Wild Cuddly Critters".  I love this elephant!

I'm going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Birdie Banners


Hope you're having a lovely weekend!  I've been busy with family stuff, some crafty time with friends, and a bit of time spent tidying the craft room - starting to see the floor again!

I have had some time to play today though and made this little card with Birdie Banners from Concord & 9th.  When I first saw this set I knew it was a must have.  The little birds are so cute and the sentiments cover so many different options!

I used my Faber Castell Albrecht Durer watercolour pencils - first time playing with them and I'm really impressed.

Here's my card:

I'm going to enter this one in the following challenges:
