Little Princess

I was very lucky a few weeks ago to win a challenge & i got to choose my prize from Joanna Sheen so i chose these lovely new SWALK Stamps!

I have admired these since they came out and finally today i got the chance to ink one up!
Each set has a few little stamps on and includes the greeting too so fabulous value!

I had some old doodlebug papers and so decided to create a bright & cheerful card!

I used a ton of Glamour Dust too so make it really sparkle!

Ally Pally Stash

Well seeing as everyone is showing there lovely stash they bought at Ally Pally i thought i would join in too!! I did go overboard, lol and infact there are some bits i bought there that aren't in the piccy as they have already made there way onto my desk...lurking somewhere lol!

In my defence, i don't get to go craft shopping much & i had saved up from my card sales!! Hehehe no excuses i know... now just gotta get using it all!!!
It was great to see soooo many people at Ally Pally and catch up with old friends, i had such a fabulous day out, well worth the wait & chaos!

LOTV Christmas

I just love all the new Christmas products at Lili Of The Valley!
I have loads of the new stamps yet to ink up & whilst out craft shopping at Ally Pally on Saturday i picked up these fabby cute squares!
They are just great when you don't have time to stamp & colour and perfect for making those last minute christmas cards - lets face it there is always someone who sends us a card who we forgot to send one to! I used this week's fabby card sketch at Papertake Weekly for my layout!
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges....
Supplies - LOTV Cute Squares, Dovecraft Papers, Bazzill Die Cuts, Nesties, Floral Punches, Jewels & Glamour Dust

Glittery Snowman!

As i am finding there aren't enough hours in the day, i have started to make lots of fast cards! I picked up these lovely images at Ally Pally on the weekend. I added lots of glamour dust (photo doesn't show it well tho!) and made lots of it 3d so it stands out and is funky!

I have gotta save up and get more copic colours as i can't do proper shading as i don't have enough light colours! If anyone can point me in the right direction of fab tutorials i would be very grateful!!

I will be back tomorrow with something different to show you!

Supplies - Kanban Snowmen, Kanban Snowflake Background Paper, Bazzill Cardstock, SU Cardstock, Glamour Dust, Pearls, Gems & Mini Message

Sorry for the lack of uploads, getting used to full time work again is knackering me out but i am getting used to it now lol. I think the best thing is to schedule my posts then i won't forget to post stuff lol. Still don't understand why it doesn't do it at the right times though lol, any advice?!

Here is a DT card i have made for My Mums Craft Shop.

I used my latest favourite stamp set called Mimi's Christmas! So many different gorgeously cute stamps in this set. I love them all and such a bargain too! As of this moment we do have them in stock & ready for dispatch but we only have a limited number left in stock as they have already been very popular!
I used some of the funky new Dovecraft Christmas papers, you get so many papers in them packs and i am so pleased they have changed the quality of the papers to more heavyweight, even more of a bargain now! I used my lovely promarkers to colour the image and used some nice ribbon i found in my ribbon drawer. I also added some jewels and a mini message to finish.

Sorry for the lack of posts etc, i have had a throat infection for the past week and haven't had the energy after work to do anything at all. I have been in bed by 10 most nights! Here i have made some cute little notelets, i have done a few but i haven't had a chance to take a piccie of the others yet and its too dark now but here is one of them.

I have kept the design extremely simple as i wanted to show off the cute little design! This little cute stamp is called Night Owls by Little Claire and you get 2 different stamps for only £2.99!! Such a bargain don't you think!?! I will put up the other notecards i have done to match soon and i will have to make something for them to go in too!
