Christmas is Coming!

In just one month it will be Christmas Eve...are you ready?

Soooo another Christmas card from me today...for the new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers...CHRISTMAS IS COMING!
The beautiful robin image is a digital stamp from JustInkLined, you can find it HERE. Colouring is done with my Promarkers. I've used a Christmas tag for the sentiment...recycling lol! The white distressing is acrylic paint using a dry brush effect. The dies I used are from Die-Namics (numbers) and Britannia Dies (Ponsettia).

The challenge this week at Passion for Promarkers is sponsored by Letraset, who are offering a limited edition set of Promarkers to one lucky winner! Remember to use your Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Trias or other Letraset products to be in with a chance to win!

Just one thing before I go...bear a thought for all the people who will be preparing for a Christmas without loved ones following the terrible events in Paris and other places around the world, my heart goes out to them all.

Bleu Blanc Rouge Quentin

Hi peeps...
A week ago today the world witnessed the tragic events that unfolded in Paris over one terrible evening. All those lives and families destroyed, it's so sad. In the days after the attacks I watched the news, read the papers and felt a huge sense of sadness...

Today my card is in the colours of the Tricolor, this is Candy Floss Crew Quentin...
You can find him in digi format at Little Miss Muffet Stamps http://www.littlemissmuffetstamps.com/Candy-Floss-Crew-Quentin_p_1583.html
Coloured with Promarkers.

Courage, La France.

Winter is on it's way!

Hi folks!

Crickey the weather has taken a turn for the worse this week, last Sunday the sun was shining and it was 20°c...today it's been grey, drizzly and flippin' freezing {sigh}! So, today's card has a winter theme...if you can't beat it, embrace it lol!
The beautiful little winter bird image is Winter Chickadee by DoveArt Designs, available from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. If you're looking for a classic design for you cards, this will definately fit the bill. I coloured with Tria Markers, there's not a huge amount of colouring to do so it's great for quicker makes! I've added doodles, of course, and a lovely ponsettia to finish it off. Twine and pearls with a bit of glitter add a bit extra.

Thanks a lot for my regular visitors...I really appreciate your comments ;-)

Stamp - Winter Chickadee (DoveArt, Little Miss Muffet Stamps), Colouring - Letraset Tria Markers, Papers - Made by ME 6x6 pad, Ponsettia - Medium and Small Ponsettia Dies (Britannia Dies)

Another Christmas card...only 50 to go lol!

Hi friends! Oh I haven't done many Christmas cards this year...in fact this will be the second one I've done...BUT I got some lovely papers now so no excuse! Here's a little caroler...love her and her little dog...
This is Celeste Amberglow Caroling by Pollycraft, one of the Honeycloud Teens range available as a digital stamp from Little Miss Muffet Stamps! I coloured with Copics, papers are from Deco Time...the checked one is so sparkly, shame it's lost in this photo! For more inspiration pop by the Little Miss Muffet Stamps Facebook Group!

Right, off to make a Halloween costume for my one year old!

You're so old it's scary!

You know the feeling when you want to forget how old you are on your birthday? Well if you don't...you're lucky! Anyway this week's challenge over at Passion for Promarkers is SPOOKY BIRTHDAY, here's my card (I went with the age thing I mentioned above lol)...
So this little stamp is from Penny Black...it's been a LONG time since I used a one of these! As there's no colouring involved on the image, I used Flexmarkers to make the spotted background and my Letraset fineliners for the doodling (0.1 and 0.7 sizes). Our kind sponsor this week is BUGABOO who are giving away a generous gift voucher! Pop by the PFP challenge blog for all the details!

Pretty Papers...

Hello peeps!

Remember I was telling you in my last post all about a new craft shop that had opened near me...well I went back yesterday and bought lots of new, pretty papers! You know it's so long since I treated myself to some new papers, I got quite excited looking through my new paper pads! I bought 5!!! And some of them have glitter on them ooooohhhhhh! So, today's card, for Little Miss Muffet Facebook Group, features two of my pretty papers...
The bottom paper has sparkles but it's not easy to see on the photograph. I LOVE the leaves though! The digital stamp is Polka Dot Pals Olive...LOVE HER...and the sentiment is from the Under The Weather Chester rubber set.

I coloured her with my limited number of Copics, so her hair is a little wild...also I struggled a bit with her hair...need to brush up on my colouring! I added some doodling, including the underline and exclamation mark on the sentiment, and a few navy blue pearls! Simple as that!

All The Trimmings!

OMG do you know there are only 69 days to Christmas?! Well, I am not good at doing things in advance, I always have the best intentions, but usually they never work out and it's a last minute MAD dash before they close the shops on Xmas Eve! Trouble is I NEVER know what to buy folks! So, for my cards (last year I sent bought ones shock horror), I have made my very first Xmas card of the year...and I loved it!
Yesterday I went to a new shop that's just opened not too far from me, it's called ACTION. Anyway...WOW is all I can say, they had some fab crafty stuff including these gorgeous papers I bought! So that inspired me to do a Christmas card for today's inspiration post on Little Miss Muffet Stamps Facebook Group. This is Swings 'n Slides All the Trimmings (LOVE HER) by Pollycraft, you can buy her in the Little Miss Muffet Stamps Store!

I coloured her with Copics (note to self...or hubby...ask Santa for more Copics), papers are from 6x6 Xmas Pad from Action, Twine is from The Ribbon Girl...finished with pearls and doodles and that's it...all the trimmings!

Reminder...dig out the Xmas CD!

Feeling a bit "pensive"...

Hey peeps!

I've not been feeling well over the last week...so my crafting has taken a back seat. Also, little Darcie hasn't been too grand either, so the worry of that has taken it's toll on my creative abilities too. I am behind with my DT duties, so this card is a double whammy...inspiration for the Little Miss Muffet Stamps Facebook Group and also for this week's Passion for Promarkers Challenge...DOODLE.
This is Celeste Amberglow Waiting...she's just like how I feel at the moment, "pensive".  Lots to think about I suppose. I'm a worrier so I do a lot of thinking! She's available as a digital stamp at Little Miss Muffet Stamps...how can you resist?!

Patchwork and Promarkers

Good morning all!

I have been AWOL for a few weeks...actually I've been visiting friends and family back in the UK. Sooooo no crafting or blogging...BUT now I'm back and kicking off with a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers. This week it's my choice of theme and I've gone for PATCHWORK! Interpret this how you will, but you must include some kind of patchwork design and of course use your Promarkers, Flexmarkers etc. Here's my card...
The sweet stamp is from Lili of the Valley...I don't know if they still do this one as I've had it a while. She's coloured with Promarkers. I've used some scraps of old Dovecraft papers to make my patchwork, and added a few pearls, raffia mesh and flower to finish it all off. 

We're kindly sponsored by Little Claire Designs who are offering a "quirky quilts" paper pack to the lucky winner! Why not give it a try...we'd love to see your creations!

Monster Birthday!

Hey folks, hope you're all doing ok!

It was my birthday today...was as the day is almost over! I've been out for a yummy meal tonight, AND I had a huge ice cream for dessert! YUM! So my card for the Little Miss Muffet Facebook Group inspiration is a little late, the ice cream won I'm afraid! Better late than never, here it is...
Obviously it had to be a birthday card! This is a Pollycraft image! For all the super stamp range from Pollycraft and lots more pop by Little Miss Muffet Stamps! Monsters are coloured with Copics and the background is doodled and coloured with Copics. Thanks for popping by xx

Planes, trains and automobiles!

Hello folks! Thanks for all the well wishes from my last post...everyone is fine...thankfully it's just the bricks and mortar that took a beating! I have a feeling that the repairs will take some time though...

Ok, today we have a fab new challenge at Passion for Promarkers... TRAVEL/TRANSPORT is the theme chosen by our lovely Marie! Here's my card...
I've used a cute little image from Lili of the Valley...do you know it's been ages since I actually used a rubber stamp...coloured of course with my Promarkers! Anyway, this one was hiding amongst my stash and was perfect for the challenge! I've gone CAS as usual...just a bit of doodling and handmade star! Hope you like...

Little Green Monster

Yesterday I had a bit of a traumatic day... to start with the weather was horrendous, it poured down ALL day! BUT that was just the start of it! About 10am I'm just about to get in the shower after settling little one in her play pen and I hear a HUGE BANG outside! So I shove my dressing gown on and race to see what's going on only to find that a car had CRASHED INTO MY WALL/GATE... OMG!!! No other car there, just the one so my immediate thought was that the driver had passed out at the wheel...I race outside, in my dressing gown (which incidentally is the same as Whitney's on East Enders) ready to call the ambulance or pompiers as they do in France BUT there's no one in the car!!! Then I see a man come out of the neighbours house shouting MERDE MERDE MERDE! OH??? Basically the car was his and he'd park up the street on the opposite side of the road, and FORGOT to put his handbake on! Like you do of course! The car had rolled across the road (the road is on a slight slope) and crashed straight into my gate! So the damage is quite a bit, lets just say that the wall has been pushed into the garden and the gate is wedged shut between two crumbling pillars! Now if that wasn't enough for one day my iphone decides it's had enough and goes off in the afternoon, does a strange lightshow on the screen and then completely dies!!! WHAT?! So I spent all evening trying to get it to work again...after much searching it's back on but the screen is flickering all the time so not sure what's going on there! A day to forget, I can tell you!

OK, onto my creation, today I'm sharing this cute, Little Green Monster card...the adorable digital stamp is called Lil' Monster and is from the Pollycraft Swings 'n Slides collection, available from Little Miss Muffet Stamps...
As usual I've kept it CAS...not even any pearls or gems on this one!!! BUT... couldn't forget the doodling! The polka dot paper is a digi, the sentiment printed from the PC. It's been ages since I used ribbon on my cards, so I thought I'd add a tad here... otherwise my card was too CAS! If you would like to see more inspiration from Little Miss Muffet Stamps then make sure to pop by our Facebook or Pinterest pages!

Colourful Cupcake!

Get your sunglasses ready...I have a bright and colourful one for you today...
Told you it was bright! I'm using a digistamp, Sundae Cupcake, from Little Miss Muffet Stamps! This is very bright for me, not sure what to make of it actually?! Coloured with Copics. Anyway, hope you find some inspiration from it! Screaming baby alert so have to go (oh my god, no one told me babies cried so much)...sorry it's a short post today!

Good morning folks! I'm sharing a card today made in my new craftroom (hooray)...I can finally get to my crafty bits and it's great! Today we have a new sketch challenge over at Passion for Promarkers, you can find Lou's sketch HERE. I've made my card using a digi stamp called Pip So Special from Digistamp Boutique, here it is...
Now who could resist this adorable digi stamp? The lovely sentiment comes with this stamp too! I love this little character and her sweet dog! I used my Promarkers to colour, the papers are from my stash, I found them when I was clearing my craft stuff...a happy find! My doodles had to be added too, of course.

We have two generous sponsors this week, Digistamp Boutique have a £10 voucher up for grabs, and Letraset are offering a 6 pk of Promarkers to one lucky winner! So join in, using your Letraset markers of course, and you could grab yourself one of these fab prizes!

Another Jr Sunbonnet...

Hiya all! I am chasing my tail this week, as usual, so my card for Little Miss Muffet Stamps is later than planned. The good news is I can finally get back into my craft room, well my new one that is, although it's not finished yet. When it is I'll share pics! So here is my card for Little Miss Muffet Stamps...
This little sweetie is from the Jr Sunbonnet range, she's called Adventure! I really like this collection of digital stamps and have used a few of these now, and at only $3.00 a stamp, well they're a bargain! I've coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers today, the papers are digi ones from my stash. I have punched out the flowers using my old  Nellie Snellen punches, and the sentiment stamp is an old one too, can't remember where from!

Pop by the LMMS Gallery on Pinterest to see lots more!

I'm entering my card into the In the Pink Challenge - Anything Goes

Summer Lovin'

Hi folks! Just a quick post today to share my DT card for Passion for Promarkers...this week the theme of our challenge is SUMMER LOVIN' (Anniversary, Wedding, Love etc)...
I've gone for a CAS look without too many frills...I used my Letraset markers to colour the little love birds...very simple colouring indeed! Only used 3 colours! The digital image and paper are from Pink Petticoat, I bought this set a few years back now but thought it was perfect for our challenge!

We are sponsored by Polkadoodles this week who are kindly giving away 2 prizes, stamps True Love and Proposal! They are so cute and just perfect for any romantic occassion!

Right, make sure to join in our Summer Lovin' challenge...don't forget to use your Letraset markers! I'll be back later this week with my inspiration card for Little Miss Muffet Stamps...

Pretty Purples

Hi!
Well what has happened to the weather of late? The temperature here has dropped around 15 degrees centigrade in a week...I hope that this is just a blip, I was getting used to the sun and Darcie was loving having her bath in the paddling pool outside!

Today I have a cutie to share with you from Little Miss Muffet Stamps...Sunbonnet Serene, here she is...
I wasn't sure what colours to go with until I saw this piece of gingham paper in my scrap box (which incidentally needs sorted out BIG time) and I thought BINGO...purple it is! It's more of an aubergine really...well whatever, I love these colours! I used Copics to colour, sentiment is from Penny Black.

Tomorrow I am planning on relocating my craftroom...I have once again changed ideas about where it will be housed...it's now going into the spare room and I'm doing away with the double bed and putting a daybed in to make room for my desk etc...and we (WE being hubby and I) are going to attempt to put up a flat pack bed from Ikea...I just KNOW that'll be the start of WW3!!! OMG!

Superstar!

Me again...just sharing this little sweetie from Little Miss Muffet Stamps...
How cute? This is BABE SUPERSTAR from Pollycraft, available in digi format from LMMS! SO sweet for your baby cards! This one is for a friend who is expecting a little boy in August ;-)  Coloured with Promarkers, complete with doodles and pearls! Paper is October Afternoon (same as card in last blog post). He's my inspiration for today on the LMMS Facebook Group! Big hugs xx

Pretty floral prints!

Hello! I have a pretty floral card to share today...it's my DT card for Passion for Promarkers. The lovely Julie has chosen FLOWERS as our challenge theme this week, how easy is that?! Here's my card...
I'm pleased to say the photo is a little better than the one in my last post (that was a shocker)...so you can see the colouring better. I have used this super image called BEACH HUT, which was supplied by our very kind sponsor this week, DIGISTAMP BOUTIQUE. I cropped the image at the bottom to cut off the hut's stilts and the sandy beach, as I wanted this to look more like a garden shed to go with this week's flower theme. The papers are old ones from October Afternoon. I've coloured, of course, with my Promarkers. The challenge really couldn't be easier so do join in with us!

Right, I'm in the thoght process (yes I said thought as it hasn't happened yet) of moving my craft room...my rapidly growing 1 year old is now taking over the house with her toys and clothes so I am going to have to vacate my craft room! I am psyching myself up for it, so wish me luck...

Swweeeeeet...

Hello peeps! Oh crikey, it's past 1.30am and I'm still up doing my blog post...there just isn't enough hours in the day! So this will be short and sweet...very sweet! Sugary cupcake kind of sweet...
Firstly HUGE apologies for the absolutely naff photo...no excuse apart from it was taken in my kitchen 10 mins ago under terrible lighting, so my cupcake colours are REALLY NOT good! This looks almost neon, which it is not in real life...grrr! And there's lots of shading (like on the cherry for instance) which is lost here!
This is one of 12 cards that I've done as thank you cards for Darcie's birthday... I've used this sweet SWEET Sundae Cupcake from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. The sentiment stamp is from Penny Black.  Doodles and sequins/pearls finish it off...et voila!

BIRTHDAYS...RAINBOWS...OH AND A FEW CARDS!

Hello everyone! This is a long post...

Sorry my post is a little later than planned today but it's my baby girl's 1st Birthday today...oh how time flies!!! We have had a busy morning opening lots of lovely cards and presents...then playing with all Darcie's new toys (and the wrapping paper cos that's a really fun toy!!!) So a little later than planned, here is my card for today's Passion for Promarkers Challenge, Eileen has chosen the theme FANCY THAT (add bows, lace, sparkle etc)...
As you can see this is Darcie's Birthday card... the digital stamp is so cute, she's from Tiddly Inks and is called Willow the Birthday Fairy... LOVE HER! My interpretation of FANCY is sparkle! She is of course coloured with my Letraset Promarkers (and Flexmarkers). Passion for Promarkers is sponsored this week by Little Claire Designs and Letraset...check out the challenge blog for more details! I'd like to enter this card into the Tiddly Inks Challenge-Anything Goes.

My second card today is for the Little Miss Muffet Facebook Group...our current challenge over at the Little Miss Muffet blog is RED WHITE AND BLUE! And if you don't know already, there's a DT Call at the moment! I've used this adorable digital stamp from Pollycraft, Broasca's Cupcake, available at Little Miss Muffet Stamps...
She's coloured with Copics. Scraps, doodles and buttons finish off the card. 

Ok so now a few photos of my baby girl! HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY DARCIE! I can't believe it's already a year since you entered our lives and filled them with joy, sunshine and rainbows! This was you in the hospital, so small and precious the day after you were born...
And a year on, blowing out your candles! Oh how time flies!

Proud Dad!

Well Father's Day is fast approaching and this year I have had to make an extra card for a first time dad...my hubby! He's so proud of our baby daughter, Darcie, I'm sure he'll get emotional on Sunday when we give him his card and present :)

Here's the card I made using Father's Lion from Little Miss Muffet Stamps...
 I was inspired by the lovely Faye's Lion card...pop by her blog cos you won't be disappointed! For me it was CAS...just a dash of colour and sparkle for this proud lion! Check out more inspiration on the Little Miss Muffet Blog, Facebook and Pinterest pages!

Here's a little piccy of Darcie...oh how she has grown! Next month she'll be a year old...where have those months gone?

Seeing Stars

Hello from a very windy France! The weather forecast says it's going to be very hot this week...hmm not sure if they mixed that up and meant to say very windy?! It's blowing a gale here!

I, however, am nice and cosy indoors, and I have a card to share with you! This is a little inspiration for the Little Miss Muffet Facebook group using another digital stamp from Pollycraft's Candy Floss Crew...
This little lady is called EBONY and you can find her over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps HERE! Again I have enlarged her, and cropped her on the computer. Colouring is with Copic Ciaos...I don't have many colours but I really like how these pens blend...I feel my collection may well increase...

You still have time to join in with the challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps blog where it's Anything Goes...simple!

Thanks to all my friends who still visit me regularly, despite the fact that I don't get much time to return the compliment. It hasn't gone unnoticed so THANK YOU!!!

Hello again!
Just a quick post to share a little card I've made for the Little Miss Muffet Facebook Group today...
I've used a digital stamp from the Candy Floss Crew collection by Pollycraft, and yes, you've guessed it, she's called Daisy! I have resized her and cropped her at the waist to get a close up of her face, otherwise she has legs too! Colouring is with Copics. Just a couple of sparkles and a bit of doodling and voila! That's it! If you'd like to get yourself a copy of this cutie then head over to Little Miss Muffet Stamps. Pop by our blog or Facebook/Pinterest pages for more inspiration. 

Come Fly With Me

Good Morning! I'm back with another card for Passion for Promarkers Challenge...today's theme, chosen by Marie, is COME FLY WITH ME (things that fly). I've used this cute angel (Love Angel) from A Day For Daisies...our super sponsor this week! So why not join in our challenge...birds, butterflies, fairies, planes, kites...anything that flies will do! Just make sure to use your Letraset products!
