The sentiment is from winnie-celebrations-2-sentiments-digi-kit-download . I have added this bright pink ribbon for some POP! and a cute little party hat button to finish things off.

Lily-Bug Love

Well Hello!

I just can't believe it's time for my 2nd post of the year for Digichoosday.  This week the Design Team are thinking of LOVE . But for you it is still Anything Goes.
I decided to make a Valentines card today. How many valentines do you give out? 

I have made this 6x6 easel card using everything from the wonderful lily-bug-love-download-kit  which has over 200 elements on it to print off. You can buy all this parts individually too.

I added the love to the paper before I printed it. Everything except the green gingham paper was printed on one A4 sheet. I cut 2 extra love and added them using silicon gel for height. I fussy cut LilyBug and lifted her too.

I do hope you can come over and join in the fun and I look forward to visiting your blog too

We Really Click!

Hello again for the first challenge post of 2019 for Lilpatchofcraftyfriends.

Today we are thrilled to announce a new sponsor to our challenge Imagine that Digi Stamp.  I have to admit not to have known about this designer before I got to choose an image to play with and I must say i was amazed to look through her store at the wonderful kits she puts together. I chose to use Snappy_Sandy  and WOW there is loads in there.

Here is the card I made using the main image (which comes ready coloured too) which I coloured in using my Promarker pens along with one of the many sentiments. I added a touch of Glossy Accents to the lens and the flash.
The card is a 6x6 tent fold which I added some lovely cherry paper to it. Then I cut out 2 trees and added tiny hearts and a die cut memories which I double layered with black.
I hope you can come on over and join in as the prize is $12 to spend in store. How great is that? I wouldn't mind winning that myself.

Hugs to Say Thank You

Hello and a Happy New Year!

I hope Santa was kind to you and left you lots of new things to play with?  Myself I received a few new things which I was grateful for and hope to share with you soon as I make cards over the next few weeks.

But today being Tuesday it means it is the start of a new challenge at Digichoosday.  It's also the first of the New Year. We have been asked to think of Thank-You's and New Things so I have made this thank you card using the adorable image of Helga-hippo-for-you she is giving a gift too.
I also used a paper from  winnie-starfish-sandcastles-papers-5  which before printing I re-sized and added Helga on to it along with the Hugs sentiment from lily-bug-love-stuff you know there are 50 cute elements to use on that kit. I tell you it was hard to choose! I printed out a second Hugs and fussy cut it out.

I took a 6x6 white card blank and stamped around the edges using a couple of the tiny stamps from the honey-daisy-clear-stamp-set . The image is coloured in using my Promarker pens with some additions of a white paint pen.
I do hope you can come on over and join in the fun? We are as always a ATG challenge and there are some great prizes to be won. Thanks for stopping by today.

Anything but a card!


Well it's time for another fun challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge  and this will be our last of the year and this time we have to make something which is not a card! So here is what I've come up with .....

Today I decided to make a fun hot drinks cup holder. So using this adorable christmas unicorn with hot chocolate  
Isn't he adorable? He comes B&W or coloured in and today I used the pre-coloured image. I took a 12x12 card stock and cut a strip then did the folding. I cut out 2 snowflakes and matted the image on to and then I added some snow flakes. This image was put on the front.
Around the cup you will see ribbon both pink stripe and turquoise and on top I've added this beautiful BIG snowflake. I added bakers twine and a couple more flakes along with 2 pink glitter berries and a white jingle bell for effect.

On the back I just added a little text just so it looked finished off.

The cup is stuffed full of those red truffle balls we all love. Oooh I wish I was keeping it now lol.

Thanks for stopping by, I do hope you can join in the fun with us as you know we are a anything goes challenge. I'd like to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and see you in the New Year.

Design Sheet cards


I shared last week a A4 sheet I'd printed off to make a couple of Christmas cards with. The sheet was off winnie-winterland-big-kahuna-digital-craft-download-bundle which is jam packed with beautiful images, papers, embellishments and these wonderful design sheets. These sheets can be bought individually too.

With this one sheet I made 2 cards and 3 tags and kept the candy cane for something else too.

This first card went straight off to my friend Sandy as I know she loves this image. I made a 6x6 card and matted mint green card which I had embossed first with Christmas phrases. I diecut some deep red gingham and then Winter White glitter card and on to that I added the image which I had hand cut out from the sheet. I added a extra bow to the top and a holly branch too. I stamped a Christmas greeting and added that to the card front to balance it out.  It has now arrived in Florida so I can post on here today.

Here is the second card. This is a 5x7 and I have added the paper straight down flat. To the ribbon I added the sprig of holly. Then taking a Polkadoodles Christmas sentiment stamp I added that to a cream circle and that to a pale blue one, both were cut using fanciful-circles-nested-set-6-craft-cutting-dies Under that I added several sprigs which I dotted red glitter glue to.
You can see both tags behind the cards and with a little bakers twine they are perfect.

Christmas Stocking Fillers

Hello There!

Well as it's Tuesday that can only mean one thing? It's time to start a new challenge over at digichoosday  and this week we are all thinking about Christmas.

I am getting a few stocking fillers made for friends and family right now and this is what I came up with for my friend.

I started with a hard board cover which I painted with bronze paint by Kaisercraft. Once dry I printed off a paper, co ordinating flowers and a sentiment from the amazing winnie-winterland-big-kahuna-digital-craft-download  this kit is jammed pack full of beautiful papers and other embellishments along with 11 B&W images and also coloured in versions too.
I covered the front and added the black squiggly lines. Then I added 2 layers in places of the flowers. I also added the sentiment to the top and printed out myself the Christmas gifts one which is at the bottom. I dotted around gold glitter glue and red perfect pearls.
To finish off I added lots of ribbon bows to the ring top.

I do hope you can come on over and join in the fun. As always anything goes and a great prize to be won too. This is my last post for the team before Christmas so I'd like to wish you all a Happy Holidays.
