Happy Monday!

Good morning all!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

We went to view the new house we will be moving into as soon as this one sells - fingers crossed it'll be sooner rather than later - then we went out for brunch and a little shopping.
Thankfully, we had no rain - but today is a different story. I put the recycling out for collection this morning and was wet-through before I got back into the house - yes, it was raining ALOT!
Brrrrr, and chilly too!
Still, this is a typical British summer so we've had some sun now and I shouldn't complain!

Anyhoo, onto today's post.

This weekend, I've been busy creating a couple of cards for the Reader Tester Team over at Papercraft Inspirations magazine.
Obviously I cannot post these yet as they need to be published first!
But, I did make a lovely notelet card just because I can!
This is for using with snail-mail - sending a little note to someone is usually electronic nowadays but everybody loves to receive real mail - that's through the post and through the door!
 It's great seeing a letter from somebody just sitting there on the doormat instead of a bill or a flyer for a local take-away! Therefore, this card would be perfect to send and receive!


Products used :-
Yellow and White cardstock
Unbranded sparkly (you can't see the sparkle tho :( ) spotty card.
Tonic Nuvo markers
Scalloped square dies - unknown brand!
Coloured gemstones
Memento black ink

My photography skills are not too bright but at least the card is!!!

Hope you have a great week.

Tiddly Inks!

Hi all!

The title of  this post is not a reflection of how I'm feeling this morning!!!

Today's card is made with a lovely digi stamp image from Tiddly Inks  for their Blooming Beautiful challenge this month!

I decided to make the cute image stand out so I stamped some flowers around it then fussy cut it all out so she would be inside a frame, then inside another frame - If you see what I mean!!!

(Oh dear, not a very good explanation but, Hey ho!)

I then stamped the top card with Happy Birthday and Sending Love stamps in bright colours to reflect the cheerful nature of the card but I kept the backing paper muted so the rest of it would stand out - or Pop! (if you're using the buzz-word of the day).
I added some fussy cut flowers to the front instead of pearls, sequins etc, and some bright pink ribbon with a 'backing paper' button!

Products used :-
Tiddly Inks digi image Annabelle - be my sunshine
Tonic Nuvo markers
Unbranded frame dies
Unbranded cardstock and DSP
Pink ribbon
Papermania mini ink pads



I'm also entering this card into the challenges at :

New Challenge - Feline!

Good afternoon everyone.

Today I have a tag which I made for the challenges at
That's Crafty Challenges

The theme is "feline" so I used this cute cat image and added it to a die-cut vellum tag then onto a die-cut tag base!

The products I've used for this tag are :-
Teal cardstock
Rare Earth Vellum
Cosmic Shimmer Mister Sprays
Stencils (unbranded
Wow gold embossing powder
Docrafts stamps
Tag dies - stitched edges (unbranded)
Ranger liquid pearls (black)
Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.


Hope you like this one - I'm not used to mixed media so it's like dipping my toe in the water at the moment!

I should have more challenge makes and commission makes to show you soon so take care and have a good week :)
