Crafters Companion DT - 2nd Party Paws sneak peek!

 Morning All!  Thought I would share with you another sneaky peek from the fablous new Party Paws range by Crafters Companion which is launching next week.  Seems you're all loving this new little fella.
For my card I have again used one of the stamps and backing papers and sentiment from the cd.  All I did was matted and layered onto some coredinations cardstock and add a ribbon from my stash.
He has been coloured in with Spectrum Noirs and I've added a little stardust stickles to the centes of the flowers.  Hope you'll pop in tomorrow for another sneak peek.  Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx

The Paper Shelter DT - Animal Magic!

Good Morning again!!  I'm back with my dt card for The Paper Shelter and this week it's all about animals.  I fell in luv with this little girl when she was released and thought that as she was wearing bunny slippers and ears it would fit the bill hehe.  She is called "I am the Easter Bunny" and is available to download here.
The backing paper I have used comes with her which is fab!  I added some flowers and lace from Wild Orchid Crafts and made a pearly swirl from some flat back pearls I have in my stash.
I have coloured her in with my Copics and matted onto coredinations cardstock.  Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you'll find time this week to join in with our challenge over at The Paper Shelter blog.  Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx

For the luv of Wee Stamps!!

Happy Weekend Peeps!  Decided today would be a good day for crafting as it's rather freeezzzzinnngg out!  What better to play with than Sylvia Zet's latest digi which can be found here.
Thought I'd dig out some old Magnolia papers which I felt fitted perfectly with the mermaid theme,  all the bubbles and swirls although they're mostly covered up lol.  The ribbon is from my stash and the flowers and lace from Wild Orchid Crafts. 
As always I have coloured in with my trusted Copics and added teeny tiny pearls from my stash together with some faux stitching.  Hope you're having a good weekend, I'll hopefully be back shortly with some more creations.  Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx

For the love of Mo (again)!

Afternoon folks!  Sorry I've been MIA but life just seems to be hectic at the minute so thought I'd pop in and share with you my latest creation with one of Mo's gorgeous images called "Odette".  I am  so besotted with each and every image that Mo draws but sadly don't have enough time to play as I would like.
The backing papers I have used on this card are from Nitwit and sadly the picture is not doing them justice.  The doily in the back is an x-cut die and I've matted and layered onto coredinations cardstock.  The "Birthday Recipe" is by LOTV and the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
I have coloured her in with my Copics and used some Spray & Sparkle on the bodice of her tutu.  I will be entering my card into the following challenges :
Deep Ocean - Letter "B" (Ballerina)
DP2 - Happy Birthday
Inky Chicks - Mothers Day / Birthday
Thanks for stopping by.  Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx

More caking adventures!

Morning Folks!  Just a quick one from me this morning to share with you my recent cakey makes.  Have been so busy that I've neglected my poor little blog, apologies to all of you.
This is my first attempt at an xbox cake and who better to try it on than my son lol!  He absolutely loved it as he is besotted with FIFA 
And here is a view from the top.  Everything is edible including the game which was printed with edible inks.

The second cake is for my son's girlfriend who is crazy about Tom Daley
Again all edible!  The filmstrip was also printed using edible inks. 
Hope I haven't bored you to death with my many pics but just wanted to share.  Have a great weekend.  Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx
