Gone dotty.....

Loving my new digi papers from & they come in such a fab selection of colours, 52 of them! Had a lovely time this afternoon checking out my Promarker colours against the Pink Petticoat colour range...... (How sad am I, I really should get out more!)
Still I did managed to colour in 3 images and make a card with 1 of them while the kids went off to the beach for a swim with their friends.......... Brrrrrr the water's still way to cold to tempt me despite the gorgeous sunshine we have had today.
So onto my card, I have used 'Doodle dots' papers, in both the negative and the positive options, in the colour 'Olive' for this card & teamed them up with Bazzill 'Leapfrog'

Challenges ~ ~ Have used their fab sketch #35. Great sketch and one I will definitely be using again. ~ Challenge 44 Summer Blooms. OK not a riot of blooms I know but there are a few. ~ Say it with flowers. Again there are a few! ~ Challenge #78
A recipe: 2 patterned papers, 3 colours & 4 buttons. Now I am hoping that skin/hair colours are not included. My colours are Green, Yellow & a little bit of Lilac. Please ignore my entry if I have been naughty with my interpretation of this. I won't sulk..........well not for long anyway.
Hope you like it & thanks for stopping by.

Have a great weekend!

Christmas Sherbet ~ Snowball

Been playing with my Pollycraft sale bargain.....isn't she's fab!
These little ladies are great to colour with Promarkers.

I have used the sketch from the but am just a tad late with posting..... oooops they're onto summer flowers for this week! Never mind I'll just have to have another play :0)

But hey....I'm still good for a couple of challenges.
Over at the want us to confess to some of our unused stash! I hang my head in shame. Eeeeek the Sizzix Cut'n'Emboss snowflake I have used (the large white one) was still sealed in the original packaging!
The team at are Amid the Winter's Snow.
About time we had some warm summer sunshine me thinks! But am still enjoying making Christmas early am I gonna be done this year.
Susie & Vikki at are after Christmas Stitching, real or faux.
And finally want Shiny, Sparkly & Special. This is my second entry with then (hope that's ok to do?) Lots of sparkle & shine and I think this stamp was an extra special bargain!

Thanks for visiting.

In the pink.....

I made the card in my previous post for my daughter's friend, but I did make a boo should have been pink! So last night I had another go at it, in pink this time.
It started out with a pink background but I just can't cope with that much pink, so swapped it for a white embossed one instead.
Challenges: ~ Shiny, Sparkly & Special. The butterflies are painted with pearlescent water colour paints from The Works and have a beautiful shimmer that doesn't show in the pic and the flowers all have some Stickles glitter on them and shiny pearls too. ~ I have used their lovely sketch. ~ Someone Special.......well all birthday girls are special aren't they!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

THANK YOU's & a challenge card

Wow.....What a fab week I've been having.
It was my birthday yesterday and all week the postie has been delivering packages for me :0) In fact he said I had the most post in the road Tuesday.......yay! So I want to say a huge
to my lovely crafting friends who have send me so many gorgeous cards & goodies. My cards look FAB all displayed in the lounge and may just have to stay there for some time.
Monday I had the pleasure of popping into The Glitter Pot on my way home from work to buy my own birthday pressies.
Now that may seem a bit odd, but lets face it what does my OH know about crafting!
He did confiscate my stash the minute I stepped over the threshold so that he & the kids could wrap all my booty. And you know what, even though I knew what I was going to get, that actually made it even more exciting 'cos I KNEW I was going to get great pressies! LOL
Tonight I will finally have a chance to actually play with my treasures and surprise, surprise I am really looking forward to that.

The only crafting I have managed this week is this purple creation which I would like to enter for the challenge as I have used their brilliant sketch, rotated 180*. I am so loving LOTV stamps right now!

A long forgotten teddy.......

........Oooh I had forgotten I had this cute teddy stamp in my stash. Came across him while I was looking for an image to use for a birthday card. Well now that I have re-discovered him, I just had to use him. As promised yesterday, after my challenge mix up, I have now used the lovely sketch from the and here is the results....
I would also like to enter my card for a few more challenges: is Birthdays/Celebrations. And the DT team are having a celebration too, with a blog hop 'cos it's their first blogaversary!
So why not pop over and join in the fun.
Over at their theme this week is buttons & bows.
And the girls want us all in stitches!
Since taking this pic I couldn't resist adding a touch of Stickles glitter to the flowers and a bit of glossy accents to the bears little nose, but its too gloomy now to take another pic so this one will have to do.
Gotta go......bath time now!
Thanks for visiting

1 card, 3 challenges....

Hi, hope you are having some sunshine where you are and life is good! The school where I work was closed for polling today so very quiet with no kids! I did have to go in though, but hey, it's been a pleasant morning with the radio on and the sun streaming through the windows sorting out a huge display board ready for an under the sea theme.

Managed to finish a card last night, it's only taken me about 3 days.....I am sooooooooo slow right now as I can't sit for too long as it aggravated my back something awful.
May is a really busy month for birthdays for me too!
So here it is.....

Once again I am too late for one of the challenges I had used as inspiration but am still in time for these 3..... ~ Week 19 Photo inspiration

From the photo I have picked out the pinky red colour and the touch of green (OK so there is not a lot in the pic but the dolls shoes are green!) The papers are from my Two Scoops pad. ~ theme Here comes summer, and for me the pinky colour is a lovely warm summer flower colour. I have used their fabby sketch.
My new stash used is my gorgeous new Marianne Creatable flowers and a............... oooooh I don't know what it's called! It cuts & embosses a decorative strip which you can then weave ribbon through, as I have, or just leave the cut out areas as they are.......either way it looks pretty.

Thanks for stopping by ........I will try to catch up with a spot of blog hopping later.
Take care!

P.S LOL....thanks Becky! Becky has pointed out that I have actually used the sketch from Sorry DT girlies over at the Sketch & Stash challenge for the error, still love your sketch, and have another birthday card to make urgently for this Saturday so I will using your sketch tonight.
