Restocking the stash…


Popping in to share a few more cards I made recently. It was fun to colour these up.

This little lady from AnnaBelle Stamps was fun to colour. I Fussy cut her out and popped her up on this tag die and then onto my card front.

This little monster is always fun to colour! Again I fussy cut and popped him up.

These 2 from Kaszazz came together super fast, simple stamping with my repositioning stamp tool.

Love the look on the bear’s face! They remind me of old story books.

A llama from Newtons Nook coloured with alcohol markers and popped up on to a background I created a while ago using a stencil, embossing paste and ink refill.

Another Llama from Newton’s Nook also coloured with alcohol markers and popped up on to a stencil/embossing paste background.

I loved the look of the pots so I stamped a few, coloured and popped 2 up with foam tabs.

I love this sentiment. So true!

So now the weather is a little cooler (for a day or so!) I intend to finish binding a quilt I made for another recent addition to the extended family. Fingers crossed I can pop back and share mid week.

Until next time




Pink Spots…

I fully intended to have these cards made over our recent long weekend – however other things got in the way of my crafting time.

I made this for a couple of challenges this week.


I used ABSC033 for the layout. I have used cardstock from my stash. The image is from ABS Tomorrows Dream paper pierced with bits again from my stash. I coloured her scarf and hat band with markers before adding glossy accents. I used an alcohol marker to colour her face. I die cut her using a circle die before mounting to a scallop circle.  I replaced the kite with a felt balloon cut from PTI die and added twine from the twinery (blossom). The card front is embossed using swiss dots. The sentiment is from ABS Party Animals 1. Before finishing off I added some  punched flowers with rhinestone centres.

I then decided to make a second card.


In this card I used ABSC031 sketch with ABS digi paper in spots with some ABS ribbon. The sentiment is again from ABS Party Animals 1. I added a Kaisercraft pre cut flower, Basic grey button tied in the centre with blossom twine and finished with a row of rhinestones.

Tomorrow’s Dream…


This is my card for the current challenge at The Lollipop Ladies

Sour Cola Bottles with the extra challenge of Glitter!

I have used Annabelle Stamps Tomorrows Dream paper pierced with Kaisercraft Le Chateau Collection. I coloured some parts with various markers. The Cloud is die cut from glitter paper using an Impression Obsession cloud die. The Kraft is Annabelle Stamps Kraft card stock. The buttons are Gorjuss which I got with a magazine recently threaded with Annabelle stamps natural hemp twine.

Thanks for taking a peek. You know I love all the great comments you leave – Thank you.



Laugh till it hurts x 2…



Miss S (13) has a another party tomorrow night and needs a card! I’ll let her decide which one she takes. I am rather partial to the stars.

I have used Annabelle Stamps Tomorrow’s Dream, Boy’s Party and The Craft’s Meow – Good Times along with some washi tape (#10 & # 13) from The Stamp Spot. The inks and markers are SU Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant and Tempting Turquoise and the cs used for layering is also tempting turquoise.

It has been so hot I haven’t had the curtains and blinds open much – just as I was ready to take the pics of these cards the sky turned black and the heavens opened up – Please forgive the really bad photography! Not that I don’t want the rain I just wish it had waited 5 more minutes.

I am linking these upto the challenge at Annabelle Stamps (if I’m not too late!)

Thanks for dropping by



Cup cake toppers

A busy week(end) for us.

Miss 12 is now Miss 13 and these are the cake toppers for her party on Saturday night.


I used ABS stamps, the new ABS digi paper and the back was plain card stock. I posted a pic of her birthday card a few days ago – so if you missed it scroll down.

She celebrated with about 15 girls at home with pizza.

And Miss 7 is Miss 8 today these are the cake toppers for her party on Sunday and she celebrated with 14 girls and some party pies, chips and other party food.


I used PTI tiny birthday treats and cardstock.


I used ABS Tomorrow’s Dream for her card coloured with markers before being cut out along with MSS Simple Salutations, Creativ ABC and PTI Heart-2-Heart #2 for the balloon. I also used paper from Jillibean Soup and MFT die.

Now don’t think it’s all over – later in the week Miss 16 will be Miss 17 – so I will be back later in the week to share her card.

Thanks for visiting and taking time to leave such lovely comments.



AnnaBelle Stamps AC082

I am linking this to the challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps this week.

I used kraft cardstock and stamped an image from PTI background Basics Retro with StazOn Timber Brown. I coloured some areas with Crayola pencils (Sky Blue, Navy Blue, Red Orange, Golden Yellow and Lime Green) and Derwent Studio Orange Chrome 10. I then used a blender pen over the coloured areas. I wrapped a piece of Jillibean soup red twine around this before adding to my card base. I die cut two labels from Annabelle stamps cuts by design in red cardstock and one in kraft cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from AnnaBelle Stamps Tomorrow’s dream onto the craft die cut using versafine Onyx Black. I added this to my card top with foam tape.

Wasn’t sure I would have time to play along this week, time just got away from me! So glad you stopped by for a peek. Thanks for your lovely comments.
