Ribbon and/ or lace at Fab N Funky


hi everyone...another scheduled post from me. Our new challenge starts today over at Fab 'n 'Funky, the theme chosen by our lovely Catherine is ribbon and/or lace. The sponsor this week is Live And Love Craft. Have to admit I left this until the last minute...not a lot of time to spare so a very simple L/O. The sweet image is from A Day for Daisies  and she's coloured with Copics, I used a white gel pen to add the dots to her dress and bonnet.
We'd love to have you play along this week, click here for more inspiration from my lovely teamies and to add your own beautiful lacy and beribboned creations!
Thanks for stopping by!

Crazy bird house




Good morning! This is my scheduled post for our new challenge at Sweet Stampin', the theme this week is 'anything but a card'- sponsored by Live and Love Crafts- so I thought I would share the moneybox I decorated for my (crazy) sister's last birthday.
I painted the mdf box with acrylics then decorated with distress inks and stamps, the Crazy Birds and flowers are stamped onto card then cut out and glued to the box. The little notice in the bird's beak is handwritten . The roof tiles are cut from grunge paper and coloured with distress ink, it was quite fiddly arranging them so that you could still put money in the slot! Hope you like it - Crazy Barb did!
Thanks for visiting today, don't forget to pop over to Sweet Stampin' to see what delights my lovely teamies have created...then it's over to you...make anything you like...as long as it isn't a card! (Don't forget to include some stamping!)
Have a fabulous weekend

Southern Girls Challenge...Magical and Mystical


Good morning, here I am again with my card for the new challenge at Southern Girls. The theme this fortnight is Magical and Mystical,sponsored by The East Wind and Lacy Sunshine.
I coloured my lovely image, Ebony Seakissed Mermaid. with copics, loads of glossy accents on the bubble. The pale blue cardstock is embossed with a Leonie Pujol EF and  the DP was a freebie with a magazine. I added die cuts, a few pearls and a stamped sentiment, then used glossy accents randomly on some of the bubbles.
I got my wires crossed and made two cards using this sweet image, will share the other one at a later date if time allows.
Thanks for calling by today.

Christmas at Sweet Stampin' September Challenge



Well here I am I again with my DT card for September's challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'.  The theme is Christmas Die Cuts. Apologies for the terrible photo here, the card looks blue but is actually white....please use your imagination! Haven't had time to take another photo as I've been busy looking after my Mum whilst rest of family away.
The image is from Mo Manning, isn't she cute?! Coloured with copics, stickles on the snowball. I cut her out using a circle die. The snowy background die is Yvonne Creations. The pink cardstock is on the inside of the card...had to be pink the card is for little Emily...guess what her favourite colour is!!!
We'd love to have you play along with this lovely easy challenge this month, for more inspiration just click here to see the beautiful creations from my teamies.

so happy together


Hi, I'm back again with my DT card for this week's challenge at Sweet Stampin'...the theme 'Wedding/Anniversary/ Love' sponsored by Crafts and Me, so our lucky winner has a fabulous prize to look forward to!
To make my card I used a lovely Stamping Bella stamp which I've had for a while and not introduced to an ink pad before! I used my copics to colour this sweet couple.
As always the DT have created some beautiful cards for your inspiration, so waste no time in hopping over here to feast your eyes! We hope you'll join the fun this week by creating your own 'love-ly' card (or project)...just remember to include something stamped!
Thanks for visiting today, hope you have a great weekend.
