A long over due card share…


Popping in to share a few cards I have made recently.

My stash of cards has got pretty low!

Love these Zebras!
A couple of chickens. I seem to have become addicted to this diaroma card. Love the simplicity and it still fits flat into a normal C6 envelope.
A mouse from Kaszazz.
Elephants from WPlus9
Simply diecuts
More for Easter. I broke out a few ancient stencils and did a little sponging. I glossed half the ABS eggs (top left) and coloured the chick with alcohol markers before poppin him up with foam tabs.

The rest of today I am playing at the sewing machine!




Pairing NBUS with older sets!…


Today I am back to share some more recent card makes. And I have used loads of NBUS stuff!

I’ll start with this new stencil from Stamplorations. I added punched flowers to her hair and finished with liquid pearls. I remember seeing one of the DT add flowers and loved the result so I’ve CASed it. I used my new SU brushes to – these are huge brushes compared to the ones I have been using!

This next one is a wee 3″x3″ card using Jane’s Doodles Wild. Coloured with alcohol markers. I can see this hippo becoming a fav! Oh and more sponging.

A couple of “Cute Fruit” cards. I used my SU Stamparatus which makes making more than one quick and easy! Again the smaller card is 3″ x 3″.

For these next two cards I have used Stamplorations Bloomfully Sparkle with PTI Tag it #3 followed by Stamplorations Bloombully Thankful with PTI Tag it #12. Both are again 3″ x 3″ coloured with alcohol markers.

And lastly another card using Jane’s Doodles to the moon. The small stars are from WPlus 9 Unforgetable and the tied string is from Uniko Garlands Galore. I CASed this card too from one I saw on pinterest.

Thanks for stopping



Celebrating 20 years…


I’m back today to share the last of my December Birthdays

My eldest turned 20 on 7th December.  We celebrated by having a toy story movie marathon (because toy story was also 20 on 7th December), food and a sleep over from 2pm Monday until 3.30 Tuesday! I went to work leaving the kiddos to it. I returned to a nice clean house and all the friends who had stayed over had gone.  Mr M washed the floor and Ms S did all the dishes and put away the mattresses to name a few of the chores.

Here are a few pics from the last few days

Each girl made their own and added their name to a gift tag I made earlier.
