Christmas is coming!

So are you all ready for Christmas? Thought not :) I must remember to start my Christmas cards for 2015 in January... this year I have resigned myself to the fact that I'm sending shop bought cards!

I have managed a couple of quick cards though, and here's this week's make for the Little Miss Muffet Facebook page, I used Dexter Gives by Pollycraft...
Coloured him with my Trias but... I have treated myself to some new Copics!!! I have always been a Letraset girl really but had a few Copics (they are very expensive)... well I coupldn't resist a good deal when I saw one so treated myself... now I can colour complete Copic creations without having to mix with Promarkers/Trias. Watch this space...

Ice Cream Anyone!

Hello! I just love Ice Cream, don't you? Well today I have been inspired by my love of  ice cream and made a card using Dexter Ice Cream image from Little Miss Muffet Stamps...
Now I apologise for the mediocre picture quality, but I have a poorly baby who needs lots of hugs at the moment and so I havent been able to get a better piccy, sorry! The glitter looks naff her but very sparkly in real life! Pop by our Facebook page for more inspiration. Hugs xx

Polka Dot Pal Arkan

Hiya peeps! Just a quick hello to share a card I've done using the beautiful Polka Dot Pal Arkan image from Little Miss Muffet Stamps... I just had to give her candy floss hair!
I've kept this card very clean and simple... just a bit of doodling and some sparkles! I used Letraset Tria markers and Copics to colour her!

I have a poorly baby... Darcie is teething and has been very grumpy with a bit of a temperature... she's getting LOTS of cuddles! Here's a little photo I took of her a few days ago...

Hoppy Days

Hiya peeps! Just wanted to share this little card today, the stamp is one of the new release digital stamps from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. It's from the Swings 'n Slides Collection and is called Hoppy Days... I LOVE the little frog! You can find the stamp HERE at Little Miss Muffet Stamps. I coloured with a mixture of Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Copics. You can find lots more inspiration from Little Miss Muffet Stamps over on our Facebook page HERE.

Today (like yesterday) has been a very trying day as a mammy... Darcie suffers from reflux and for the past few days she has been really irritable (even more than usual if that's possible), and the poor little mite has been crying almost non-stop! It just breaks my heart to see her like this and I don't know what to do to make it better for her (apart from all the usual stuff to help relieve her). Nothing seems to settle her except holding her and walking around the house, or taking her out for a walk in the pram. As a consequence I've had NO time to spend crafting and blogging, so I do apologise AGAIN for not visiting you all. I really hope she's feeling better tomorrow as Grandmere is looking after her while I go to the dentist! 

On a positive note, I have a picture of Darcie to share with you...
 Thanks for popping by, big hugs xx

Super Hero!!!

Hiya friends! I am so sorry I haven't been around to visit you all yet, LIFE as I know it is not the same with a 3 month old baby! But I wouldn't swap her for the world... I just can't seem to draw myself away from her! Anyway, here's a little Super Hero card I want to share with you. His name is Super Spencer and you can find him in Digi form over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps! Also pop by our Facebook page HERE
Right... off to feed a crying baby... hugs!

Lil' Monster at Little Miss Muffet Stamps

Hi everyone! Do you know it's been an absolute age since I've made a card and to say I'm a little rusty is an understatement! Anyway, here's my first offering in a long while, a little inspiration... you can find this card on the Little Miss Muffet Facebook Group page today. This little chap is called Swings 'n Slides Lil' Monster and can be found at Little Miss Muffet Stamps
Apologies for the dodgy colouring... I am very out of practice! 
Thanks for popping by today!

Has it been THAT long?

Wow it seems like forever since I've been here... well since I've blogged. Thank you for all the kind comments and wishes of congratulations on the birth of our baby girl! I have to say I have been VERY busy looking after her... and how time has flown! Can't believe that Darcie is already 3 months old! We've had a bit of a trying time, Darcie suffers from reflux which wasn't picked up until she was almost a month old so it's been a worrying time, but we're managing it and she seems a little happier. Anyway, here are a few pictures of her...
@ 6 weeks
almost 3 months (this pic and one below)
She has changed so much from that tiny baby we brought home from the hospital in July! Such a cutie, and she's got all her buttons on to! I love her so much!

Ok, that's it for today, but I'll be back VERY soon with some cards, promise! Looking forward to getting back into things ;)

My Gorgeous Daughter, Darcie Alice Hope

Just a quick post... I have been rather busy lately! I'd just like to introduce the newest member of our family, our first baby! Darcie Alice Hope arrived on the 7th of July 2014, weighing 2.780kg and measuring 47cm. Mammy and baby are doing just fine, although the labour was not a piece of cake (OMG thought I was dying), but we were rewarded with a beautiful, baby girl! She's just perfect, and we can't believe how lucky we are! Here's a few pictures...
Photo: We are so pleased to announce the birth of our daughter, Darcie Alice Hope. She was born on Monday 7th July 2014 at 9.31pm. She weighs 2.780kg (6lb12oz) and measures 47cm(18.5 inches). She is just perfect! We cannot believe how lucky we are! Michelle & Rudy xx
One day old
At the hospital with her first teddies
One the phone to Santa again... this is her favourite pose!
Back home, sound asleep!

Hope to back with you all in blogland soon... but a certain little person is taking up lots of my time right now! Sending hugs xx

Remember Me?

OK, so I've been absent for quite some time... sorry! I do have an excuse though... I'm almost 38 weeks pregnant! I haven't done any crafting, or blogging for weeks now, just feeling exhausted and have had other things on my mind. Anyway, here's an update on my bump...
My bump @ 32 Weeks
This is at 35 weeks (notice the tree on the wall... stickers, I love it!) Bear isn't looking too impressed!
And today (almost 38 weeks)... not much difference from 35 weeks but baby has grown and weighs 2.7kg now (approx).
And finally a pic of baby's room, part of it anyhow. We now have a cot which is on the left, next to the mobile (didn't have it when I took this picture). Hope baby will like the room!

Oh... just to say baby is now head down... HURRAY! But the bad news is that they may have to induce me  early (I have a few health concerns with the pregnancy)... I'm really scared that the induction will not go to plan and I end up having a C section! 

Thank you so much for popping by, I'm sure I've lost some of you by now but if you still visit... THANK YOU! I hope to be doing a card or two soon too! Big hugs xx

Baby's Room Update...

Hiya peeps!

You've probably all lost interest in my blog by now, I'm not doing any crafting at the moment. I have got some pictures to share with you though... we've been busy doing baby's room, it's not quite finished, but my Dad came over and did all the decorating (We went for white & grey), so it's just the finishing touches to do really. Here's a sneak peek so far...
I made a quilt and some bunting for baby's room, here's a few close ups...

Quilt and Bunting (I love this pretty cotton material, it's from Dunelm/Yorkshire Trading... and it can be 'boy' or 'girl')
The Bunting
The Quilt (front and back)
There are some fab tutorials on the net for making quilts/bunting... and it didn't take that long to make these (and I'm a beginner really). The bunting was really simple to do, and I think it looks quite cute!

The room isn't totally finished, we have the crib to add and a few more things... I'll take a few pictures when all is done so you can see it all finished. Hopefully I'll be back crafting/blogging soon too! 

I'm now almost 33 weeks pregnant, and my baby bump is definately growing. I had a scan last week, all ok except that baby is breech!!! I have some excercises to do to encourage baby to turn head down... if not it'll be a programmed C-Section delivery. I'm keeping all fingers crossed that baby decides to turn! Has anyone had any experience of baby turning late on? I see my doctor mid-June so baby needs to turn before! 

Thanks for popping by today! And thanks for not losing interest in my blog, for those who are here LOL :)

A Little Update...

Hello peeps!

Ok, so it's been a while! Maybe you're wondering what's happened to me (I am wondering what's happened to me)... well just to keep you in the loop... I'm now fast approaching my 8th month of pregnancy and am starting to feel tired... VERY TIRED! Baby is moving and kicking, especially at night, so I don't always get the sleep I need. We have also started re-organising the house in preparation for baby. My Dad recently decorated the spare room for little one's arrival (I'll take some pics and post them on here soon), so everything that was in the spare room (well junk room) is now piled high in my craft room!!! I can't even get into my craft room for boxes and boxes of STUFF! Grrr! This is why I have not been able to make anything lately, well not cards anyway. I did make a baby quilt and some bunting for baby's room, I'll have to take a picture of that too, so be back soon with another update! Thanks for popping by xx

So Sentimental...

Good morning peeps! 
Firstly I want to say a BIG THANK YOU for all the lovely well wishes I received in my last post!!! I'll keep you posted with news, and of course when baby arrives! A few months to go yet though!

Now, we have a new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers, SO SENTIMENTAL, we want you to use a sentiment on your project, easy! Here's my DT card...
I haven't used a Penny Black stamp for ages, so thought I'd use this cute stamp called A Stitch in Time. The sentiment is from a clear set by Hero Arts. The lovely papers are from my friend Faye! I used my Letraset Tria markers to colour... don't forget if you want to join in the challenge you must use your Letraset markers (Promarker, Flexmarkers, Tria, Aqua etc...). We are sponsored this week by Whiff of Joy who are giving away a fab stamp and Angel Crafts who are offering a mixed bag of stash to one lucky, random winner. Pop by the challenge blog for all the details, and take a peek at the other super DT creations!

Spilling the Beans (or bean lol)...

Good morning peeps!

I'll spill the beans later, but first I want to share a card I made for the inspirational post today over at Little Miss Muffet Blog... meet Sonny Honeycloud Party by Pollycraft. You can find her and much more over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps...
You likey? I think she's a real sweetie, just perfect for any Birthday! I coloured with my Promarkers and Trias, and added some fun embellishments. The papers are K & Company (I think) from a while back. Pop by the Little Miss Muffet Blog to see lots more inspiration from my DT buddies! We also have an ANYTHING GOES challenge on at the moment if you fancy joining in?!

Right... I will now SPILL THE BEANS! You may have noticed that I've not been visitng you all much recently, and have only been blogging for my DT posts. Well, it's not because I don't want to visit you all, or do any crafting but I've been feeling quite tired etc these last few months because...
 I'm PREGNANT! Six months now... but the first few months were difficult so I kept things quiet (except for a few peeps who knew)... but now there's no hiding my growing bump, so there you have it! I hate my picture taken, so have just featured the bump in the photo! This is our first baby and hubby and I are over the moon, we can't wait to meet our new little one! I'm feeling more and more movement which is really exciting! Baby is due in July, so hopefully the weather won't be too hot this summer... not good when you're heavily pregnant, I suppose!?

So... please forgive me if I don't get around to visit you all as often as I should, it's just I often fall asleep on an evening so struggle to keep my eyes open to blog! Sending you all lots of hugs xx

Bay... Little Miss Muffet Stamps

There's a new challenge today at Little Miss Muffet Challenges... ANYTHING GOES! So that's easy then, isn't it?! Here's my DT card using Bay, one of the Sugar 'n Spice dolls from Little Miss Muffet Stamps...
Isn't she just the sweetest? And her little dolly too... cute! She really was a darling to colour, not too fiddly just how I like my images! I used my Promarkers and Trias to colour her. Fairly simple card, but I like it :)

One Eyed Smiley Monster!

Hello peeps!
I'm here with a card for the challenge at Passion For Promarkers today... EMBOSSING (DRY OR HEAT)... here's my cute, smiley Cyclops monster card...
I've used this adorable monster from Pollycraft, I've had him for a while now but he's still one I turn to from time to time. Of course he's coloured with my Promarkers (you must use your Letraset markers if you join in the challenge). Finally I added embossed dry words from a Cuttlebug embossing folder, ribbon and pearls.

Little Miss Muffet Stamps - Inspiration

Hey peeps! How you all doing? I am just loving the fab Spring weather we're having lately, aren't you?

We have an inspirational post going on today over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps Blog, here's my card...
I've used one of the new Polka Dot Pal girls, Amy, she's available in digi format over at the Little Miss Muffet Stamps Store. She doesn't have facial features, so I've added some of my own. Do you think she's a little solemn? Me thinks she's gone over her credit card limit! I've doodled the shopping bags as I had nothing in the way of embellishments to go with my sentiment! Anyway, pop by the blog and check out all the DT girls' creations! Thanks for popping by xx

Supplies:
PDP Amy - Little Miss Muffet Stamps, Promarkers - Letraset, Papers - Papermania

Doilies & Lace

Hello peeps! 
There's a new challenge over at Little Miss Muffet Challenges today... DOILIES & LACE! The perfect theme to do a lovely, girly card! I've chosen one of the cute Polka Dot Pals - Daisy, she's available in rubber from Little Miss Muffet Stamps

I've gone with my favourite colours, green and blue, I love these colours together. Daisy is coloured with Tria and Flex Markers from Letraset... I have only a few Copics and unfortunately my budget won't stretch to more at the moment :( so I'm using my trusty Letraset pens! The little branch detail is made from wood, I bought it at a local craft fair and coloured it with my markers. I'm starting to feel a little more comfortable colouring pleats and folds in clothing, although I think there's still room for improvement. What's your bugbare when colouring?

Love Butterflies?

Good morning peeps! Sorry I've been a bit AWOL lately, there is a good reason which I will share with you soon. Thank you for all your lovely comments lately, I will get round to visiting you all this week, promise! In the meantime here's something you might be interested in...

We have a fab theme this week at Passion For Promarkers... Eileen has chosen BUTTERFLY KISSES! Just include at least one butterfly on your project, and don't forget to use your Letraset markers! We are very lucky to have 2 sponsors this week: Crafty Sentiments, who are giving away 3 digi images to the lucky winner and Letraset are offering a pack of 6 Flex markers!

I was lucky to be able to play with an image offered by our sponsor Crafty Sentiments, this one is called Little Friends and is just too cute! I coloured using Flex and Promarkers.

Hope you can join in with us this week.

Make it Green

Yey it's March... Spring shouldn't be far away now, surely! I do have a few daffs out in my garden, I just love Spring flowers! 

Right, onto my card today. We have a fab new challenge at Di's Digi Designs Challenge and this fortnight we want you to MAKE IT GREEN... here's my DT card...
Hmmm, lots of zingy colours, perfect for Spring! I was a little inspired by my lovely daffodils for this card :) I've used the gorgeous Izzy's Birdcage digi stamp from Di's Digi Stamps, coloured with my Flexmarkers (and a few Copics). Obviously I've gone with the green colour theme, but I've also used old stash (flowers, doily, buttons and papers) which have been hanging around forever, so I like to think I've done a bit of recycling too.

Please feel free to join in the challenge, we are very lucky to be sponsored by MY CRAFT SPOT, who will be giving away a prize to the random winner. You can also be in with a chance to win a couple of Di's digi stamps if you use one of Di's images (not a freebie digi though). Pop by the challenge blog for all the details! Have a fab weekend xx

Anyway, she's for our new challenge over at Little Miss Muffet Challenges and we couldn't have made it easier for you to join in... the theme is ANYTHING GOES

Make It Digital

Good morning friends! Do I see the hint of Spring around the corner, or is this just wishful thinking? When will this rain ever stop? I just start to get my hopes up when we have a pleasant, sunny day, then BAM! The next day it's grey and pouring down again!

Well if you're stuck inside 'cos of the weather, why not join in our new challenge at Passion for Promarkers... MAKE IT DIGITAL... just use a digital image and/or papers, simples! Don't forget you must use your Letraset markers though (Pro, Flex, Tria, Aqua etc etc). Here's my DT card...
What a stunner this little lady is! She's called 'Glitz' and is part of the Dollie Daydream Collection. She was kindly offered to the DT by Nikky over at Polka Doodles, who incidentally is our generous sponsor this week! Nikky will be offering this gorgeous digi stamp to 5 lucky winners! I coloured her with Tria and Flexmarkers, added some glitz and a little digi sentiment, et voila!

Short and sweet today, ta ta!

Meet Dudley...

Hello, hello! Today it's a quick inspirational post from me... I've used a cute Pollycraft digi stamp DUDLEY BALLOON on my card today, he's one of the new releases this month over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps. There's loads of stamps to chose from, both rubber and digi... check out my post below this one as we also have a blog hop going on at the moment! The other DT girls have also made some fab cards to inspire you, pop over to the Little Miss Muffet Stamps blog and see for yourself!

I set myself a challenge with this one, I had to colour him in Copics ONLY! As I only have a few Copics, all bright/primary colours then it really was a bit of an experiment, especially as this was the first image I've coloured in Copics. I think he's turned out ok, considering ;) I did use a blue Flexmarker for the sky though as I don't have a light blue Copic marker. He's such a cute dinosaur!

Thanks for popping by today!

This Little Piggy...

Hey! Hope you're all doing ok, I've been a little distracted from blogging lately... last week I was slicing courgettes on a mandolin and well let's just say they slice fingers better! So after a trip to A & E, 3 hours later I had a glued finger with a mummy size bandage on it! Ever seen kids struggle to colour within the lines... well that was me... took me 3 attemps to do this little piggy! BUT today I'm back with my DT card for Passion for Promarkers Challenge, and this week it's my turn to chose the theme! As Valentine's Day is just around the corner I've chosen HAVE A HEART... you don't have to do a Valentine's card, but your projects must include hearts! Here's my card...
How cute is he?! This little piggy (no, he doesn't go to market) is a from Pollycraft but is unfortunately no longer available (sadly the Pollycraft online shop is no longer open), he's called Hogs and Kisses (he came with the sentiment). I coloured him with my Letraset Flexmarkers (3rd time lucky)! Remember, if you join in the challenge you MUST use your Letraset markers (Pro, Flex, Tria, Aqua etc). This week we have some fab prizes as we're lucky enough to have two generous sponsors, Letraset & Angel Crafts! Pop by the challenge blog for more details!

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Graph'it Marker Challenge - Lovey Dovey

With All My Heart

Hey peeps! Happy Weekend! It's February!
We have a LOVE/VALENTINE'S theme over at Di's Digi Designs Challenge this fortnight, and I couldn't resist making a card with this cute mouse from Di's Digi Stamps... he's called 'With All My Heart'. Again I've kept things fairly CAS... just how I like it :) Our sponsor for this challenge is Marker Pop who are kindly giving away a $10 voucher! And if you use one of Di's Digis (not a freebie though) you could win yourself two digi stamps of your choice from Di's Digi Stamps! Interested? Go and check out the details and the DT girls' creations at the Challenge Blog!
