Toot Toot, driving in my car!


Today I'd like to share a little card I made for a guy who loves his cars and looking after them. Before he puts this little number in the garage it gets a wipe down.

So when I saw this image of sports-car-alf over at  I knew this would be perfect as he has a car just like it which comes out at the first sight of the sun.

I made a simple 5x7 tent fold card from bright white card stock and matted up deep red and black and added a little white pen around the edges.
The image was coloured in using my Promarker pens. I added a red dot edge around him and matted him on to black and red again. I added a little bakers twine to one side and this was then added to the card using foam pads.
The Happy Birthday is a verve stamp and the cool dude is from another digi set from the boutique.

Thanks for stopping by today, please leave a word so I know who's called by.

Happy 4th July.

Hello there,

Where is this time going? Well here we are 15th June and it's time to share with you all our reminder cards for the challenge running over at bestieschallenge. we have a theme of Summer but we are also a anything goes challenge.
Here is my card today.

Summer time for me is seaside, outdoor games and birthdays! So I decided to make a card using this cutie called Baseball Bestie_img309  of course she could be playing "rounders" (for all us Brits lol).  But I always like to send a card to my Auntie who lives over in Washington State celebrating 4th July.

I made a 5x7 card blank and added 2 pieces of a double sided paper (top & bottom) to cover the join I added a navy flag banner and a white star banner both by   
I coloured the image using my Promarker & Copic pens and cut her out using the die by fancy-rectangles-tabs-die-set   I just love this die!
I printed the sentiment on my P.C. and cut a flag banner for it. Then a few stars were cut in red, white & blue and dotted about.
There's still time to join in and you can win some cool images for more summer fun projects.

New Job Winnie!


I am really pleased to share my 3rd project with you for my Guest Designer spot over  at
This is a ATG challenge but the designers were asked to make a different shaped card so I decided to use one of my Dutch doobadoo card shapes (which I love btw) to allow me to cut out of dusty blue card this great shape.

I chose to use this image New Job winnie-from celebrations-2 along with papers from winnie-sugar-sprinkles-paper-heaven-4-bundle  and the sentiment is from the fab winnie-celebrations-2-sentiments . I also used some lace and ribbon from my stash. I used several dies on this card some Spellbinder and one from a LDRScreative set I have.
I made a couple of fancy pins to pop behind the paper ribbon by adding extra beads to a couple of hat pins.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you'll join in with the challenge as there is a prize to be won.

Splashing Around!

Hello There,

Well it's time to start off a new challenge over at lilpatchofcraftyfriends. and as always we are a "anything goes" challenge.
We have an exclusive sponsor this time around who are offering the winner 2 packs from their store and they are AMBillustrations

Here is what I made using mermaid-digital-stamp-under-the-sea it comes with a plethora of add on images allowing you to make a wonderful scene.

I printed out and coloured in using my Promarker pens the mermaid and a couple of seahorses. I used a selection of papers from Kaisercraft and stickers I bought whilst in Florida a few years back. The sentiment stamp is by Sue Wilson from Rubbernecker Stamps.
I lifted the image and both sentiments on foam pads and added a few blue sequins to finish off.

I hope you can come on over and join in the fun. Leave a few words below if you like what you've seen.

So berry sweet!


Well today is the start of our new challenge over at my-besties-international-challenge.  And we have
theme to play with for those like one or we are as always a anything goes challenge. The theme is Summer.


Summer to me always includes copious amounts of fresh English strawberries and lashings of thick cream (never mind the waistline lol). So when I saw this little cutie in the store I knew I had to use her. She is img666 found in the Etsy store  I coloured her using my Promarker pens and Copics.

The card is a 6x6 bright white with mats of red and the beautiful strawberry paper by Maja Designs called Summertime-Taste-the-strawberries. Before I put this down I first stitched with red thread to the top and bottom and added green pearl beads to the bottom. I cut 4 small mats from Spellbinder dies to put under her one being the other side of the strawberry paper. I cut her "out" of the die for a change.
I printed the sentiment and matted that to match. I fussy cut a few strawberries and dotted them about and we are finished.
I do hope you can join in with us as there are some fun images to be won. Thanks for stopping in today and I hope you can leave a word or two.
I'd like to join in with these challenges too

Miss Kelly Von Sweets Gift Bag


Here I am sharing my second project for digichoosday.blogspot. as a very happy Guest Designer. As always it is a Anything Goes challenge but we DT members have been asked to add something that was not originally made for card making.

So I have used one side of a pink zipper to make a rose as well as making some of my own enamelled dots from those peg things children use to make drinks coasters etc. I'm sorry I can't recall what their actual name is!!

The paper bag is 4x6 and is in a bleached blue decking pattern. I printed off  4 of the papers from and matted up the bag, I cut the lace boarder and the mat for the image which is the pretty  which I coloured in with my Promarker pens.
I added a dusty pink doily from my stash and I cut the awesome and some leaves from some plain yellow. I have cut from the papers two tassel's which I have tucked under the rose. The sentiment is from  I used  to cut it out and mat on to the green.
To finish off added the dots and a tiny yellow peg with a flower on it.

I do hope you can come over and play along with us all. Stop by and see what the other designer have made too.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you can leave a word or two,

Digichoosday with Polkadoodles


Well I am so happy to post today as I am a Guest Designer over at Digichoosday.blogspot.
I couldn't be happier as I just love the products that Nikky produces. I seem to have been watching her for quite sometime now but never confident enough to try out for a chance to be one of her designers but when I saw a shout out a while ago I thought I'd try.

So here is my first project for the challenge. We have a theme to use but the challenge itself is one of anything goes with some "fab" prizes to be won.

I decided to make a tag using a 6inch chipboard shape I have been keeping in my stash for quite some time now! I first gave it a coat of cream paint by Kaisercraft.
As the theme for us is one of "Shabby Chic" I decided to use this floral paper to cover the front but not before I distressed the edges and inked using Tattered Rose Then I took a sage green doily and placed it down slightly hanging over the edge and then added some deep striped ribbon I've had for a while too. This I also hung over the edges.
Today I have chosen to use one of Nikky's pre-coloured images  I love to have these in my stash as you don't always want or have the time to colour. I just loved the colours in this too. I cut her out using Polkadoodles-fancy-rectangles-tabs-die-set and inked the edges again with Tattered Rose then I matted her up on the dot paper. I placed her down also hanging over one side.
As she has a glass with a straw I thought I'd add one too along with a collection of flowers and leaves. The sentiment is from  
I added a cute little button with the Eiffel Tower on it along with some gems and two types of ribbon to the top to finish off.
I do hope you can stop by and join in the fun.
