Late again - sigh. Well at least I a here. The Challenge over at Cute Card Thursday has the theme of Celebrations. So the choice is yours. We are sponsored this week by Di's Digi Stamps I went with the Wedding theme using one of the Lili of the Valley Simply Print sheets. So cute AND no colouring. The paper (yes only 1 sheet) is from Joy crafts I think. The sentiment is also Lili of The Valley.

Cute Card Thursday 467 - Anything Goes

Another super easy Challenge over at Cute Card Thursday for you all. It's an anything goes theme, so come on what you waiting for. We are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps this week.


I decided to make a tag for this one. I have used the Bigz Tag die by Tim Holtz to make the tag. The feathers are a Die from Joy Crafts and a wee MFT button die cut. The doily I have had for years, but am finding loads of use for them now. I decided I needed a bead on there somewhere so added the wooden bead at the top. Of course the image is from Whimsy Stamps here. You can also get in digital here. The papers are digital from Sweet Shoppe Designs - My Tribe by JadyDayStudio.

The papers I have hoarded for a while, so thought it was about time I used them. Dies used are MFT and Tonic (for the scalloped circle). Coloured with Polychromos and blended with Sansador using paper stumps.

I embossed the background with holly embossing folder by Embossalicios and the holly die cut is an Impressions Obsessions die. The others are Tonic and MFT dies.

Cute card Thursday 463 - Be My Valentine

Well another week and that means another challenge over at Cute Card Thursday. We have a Valentine theme going on this week. We are sponsored by Whimsy Stamps this week.


For my project this week, I've made a bag / box thingie. Yep technical name. I found some heart doilies in a box that I must have had for years, so why not use one - right. Black card for the box (nightmare to take a photo if though) and some red paper for the bottom. I used an old Martha Stewart border punch for the border. A bit of ribbon, some sequins and heart gems. Oh, and don't forget the cute Penguin. He is from Whimsy Stamps and is digital - so instant - Yay. You can find the tutorial for the bag here.

Cute Card Thursday 461 - Cool Colours/Tones


That's another week gone by. And another Challenge over at Cute Card Thursday where the theme this week is cool colours/tones. We are sponsored this week by Di's Digi Stamps.This one nearly had me stumped - I'm not quite ready to be making Christmas cards (OK, so I should get starting them), but that's OK, blue is a cool colour right. So a New Baby Boy card we have. I have used this wee cutie from Lili of the Valley. I can only find him in digi form, but that means no waiting on the Postie. The tag and buttons are MFT dies and the sentiment is Personal Impressions.

Running a bit late in getting this posted. But here I am. There's a new Challenge over at Cute Card Thursday and the theme is buttons. We are sponsored by All Dressed Up Stamps this week.


I have used Dino for my card. I am trying to make some Boy cards, something I don't make much of. But he was too cute not to use. The papers are real (yeah I know - real papers Haha) from Trim craft. I have also used the sketch from Sketch Saturday.

Cute Card Thursday 458 - Anything Goes

Wow, another week gone by and very nearly the end of the year. And we have another Challenge for you over at Cute Card Thursday.  And it's another super easy Anything Goes Challenge. So go on and get your Crafty stuff out. 



I made a tag for this challenge. It has a pocket on the front, so I can add a wee something. I used a Krista Smith image from when she designed for Sugar Nellie. This one is a Rubber Stamp called Amelia. I die cut the tag using a Tim Holtz Sizzix die and the gears were again Tim Holtz by Sizzix I think. I cut the tag from white card and then distressed with Distress inks. The cogs were distressed then I went over them with Alchemy Wax from Imagination Crafts. They are kinda shiny, but the photo makes it look worse. In fact, I am really happy with how this tag turned out. I don't usually do Steampunk, but couldn't turn down this Sugar Nellie stamp when it came out. So I had to get some gears and cog dies to go with the flow. But I might just have to give it another go now.

Anyway we are being sponsored by Lemon Shortbread this week.


For my card I have used Winter Fairy from Lemon Shortbread. She is super cute don't you think. The papers are digi from Michele Roo Designs. With a diecut snowflake, a snowflake charm and a bit of ribbon and a Craftwork Cards sentiment this card came together nicely.

Cute Card Thursday 456 - Snowflakes

New Challenge over at Cute Card Thursday with the theme Snowflakes. This week we are sponsored by Di's Digi Stamps.


I'm so running out of time and needed a nice gift tag for SIL's present. So a wee Coffee theme going and gold and black snowflake paper helped me decide on this. The coffee cup is a die from Whimsy - I so love this one, just a nice size. The tag, stitched circle and banners are all dies from MFT. I broke my wee snowflake punch, so had to hunt another one down. I finally found one in a pack of three, but I had to have it (even if I wont use the others).

Cute Card Thursday 455 - Stars/Sparkles

New Challenge started over at Cute Card Thursday and the theme is Stars/Sparkles. We are sponsored this week by All Dressed Up Stamps.



For my card I have used the super cute Happy Christmas Little Star. She turned out totally different to what I had in mind. For a start she was pink in my mind. Oops. Anyway, went with these papers from Michele R Designs. A bit of Kraft card and some die cut Poinsettia's with star centres and she is all done. I have added some sparkly Wink of Stella (but you can't see it on the photo). Coloured with Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador using paper stumps.

I have used the Sketch over at Sketch Saturday. Rotated it and used a rectangle instead of the oval.

Cute Card Thursday 453


We have another Challenge up over at Cute Card Thursday and the theme is Tag, Ornament or Bauble. We are sponsored this week by Sherri Baldy. I decided to make a Tag, as I am really enjoying making them just now. I cut the tag using an MFT die and added some Impression Obsession die cut trees and snow drifts using MFT snow drift dies. The star is Taylored Expressions. I used some Stampendous Embossing Frantage stuff to look like snow falling. And the super cute horse is from Whimsy Stamps and is digital. I am so glad they brought them back. Can't wait to see what else they have in store. I have coloured him in using Polychromos Pencils and blended with Sansador using Paper stumps. Oh - I almost forgot to add that I have added some acetate to the front to make it curved. And horsey is sitting on top of the acetate with the scene behind it. (Haha, that's what makes this tag too).

Yay, I'm on my Christmas Crafting mode. The theme for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge is Christmas/Holidays. So I'm sure you all can play along.

The papers are My Minds Eye and the Poinsettia's are Marianne Designs. The button is an MFT die as is the flag for the sentiment.

Another week over and a new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday. The theme this week is to add something metallic. We are sponsored by All Dressed Up Stamps. I added a snowflake charm for this. I decided to make a wee prezzie of hot chocolate, mallows and candy cane. So made a tag for it. I was quite happy with the tag. I used this wee cutie who was just calling out Hot Chocolate. The papers are digi from Pink Petticoat. The wee mallows at the bottom are from an MFT die and the snowflakes are from Paper Smooches. I added a few sequins on the image too. And another view - straight on.


I am going to enter this into the Challenge over at In the Pink where the theme is Winter.

Cute Card Thursday 450 - Anything but a card


Time for another Challenge over at Cute Card Thursday where the theme is Anything but a card. I needed a gift box, so thought it was perfect timing. So I got out my trusty Scorepal and measured it all out. So here is the result. I have used a Saturated Canary digital image, but sadly they are no longer available. The paper is from Sweet Shoppe Designs and a whimsy Die for the snowflake. We are sponsored this week by Whimsy Stamps. And they are brought back digi stamps - yay.

Simply B Stamps Challenge 1


Running a bit slow with this one, but hopefully managing to get it posted in time. My card for the first Monthly Challenge over at Simply Betty Stamps. As I was running late, I used an image that I had already coloured up. Making it a super quick card. Well for me anyway. I can't find this cutie in store at the mo, but I'm sure you could find something if you have a wee look round. The sentiment is from another Betty image here. The papers are from Sweet shoppe Designs - Black Pearl by Misty Cato. I just love these papers.
