Lovely Lydia

Hello my lovelies what a glorious couple of days we’ve had I do hope it lasts but seeing the weather reports I feel we are in for some rainy days ahead :o(
It’s my cousins birthday today so I have made her a card using one of the lovely $2 digis (all links will be at bottom of post)


I have used so lovely daisy paper but unfortunately can’t remember who they are from (Sorry)
The image is called Lydia isn’t she adorable? We are showcasing her for our monthly challenge over on Facebook , why not pop over and join in we’d love to see you.


 I added the sentiment to the bottom of the image when I printed it out and I coloured her with my trusty polychromo pencils, then inked the edges


To embellish the card I made some paper daisies to go alongside the image. They were so easy to make using a Brittania die and some flower soft


I made the insert in my usual way bringing one of the papers through and also the image to tie it all together then adding the verse.
So there you have it I hope you like it and I will see you very soon

Get well Bernard

Hello again Mo fans, I hope you are all fine and dandy, Well it looks like we might be in for some warmer weather dare I say.


Anyway my card for you today is a get well card I had to make for a friend who has been very poorly
I have used papers from Pixel scrapper(all links will be at bottom of post) Which I have distressed edges.
The image is called Bernard and I coloured him with my trusty polychromo pencils.
To finish off the front I added flat backed gems then moved on to the insert.
I found a fitting verse in my collection so added that to papers I’d used on the front, then brought the image through to tie it together.
So there you have it I hope you like it and I will see you very soon

Baby fairy Flidais


Hello again Mo fans, I hope you are all fine and dandy, well can you believe the weather we’ve had this last week here in the UK. Who would have thought we were in spring lol


Anyway my card for you today is one I have made for an upcoming Christening.
I have used papers from Pixel scrapper(all links will be at bottom of post) Which I have distressed and inked the edges.


The image is from the baby fairy collection and is called Flidais I coloured her with my trusty polychromo pencils. Then die curt her out using a circle stitch die from my stash.


I printed the sentiment off with the papers and inked with squeezed lemonade. Then I went on to make the embellishment. I did this by taking a length of ribbon and sewing a running stitch along one end, then pulling it all together to make a flower adding stamens to the centre. I then made a bow out of thread which had been stiffened to which I added a cross.


To finish off the front I added flat backed pearls then moved on to the insert.
I found a fitting verse in my collection so added that to papers I’d used on the front, then  brought the image through to tie it together adding the baby’s name.
So there you have it I hope you like it and I will see you very soon

Lets Celebrate with Helga


Hello Polkadoodle fans, I’m back today with a new card for our brand new challenge this week. For us DT girls the challenge theme is celebrations but for you lovelies, it’s always anything goes. I decided to make a retirement card using the lovely Helga. 

It’s a pretty straightforward card using a couple of the design sheets and fussy cutting some of the embellishments out then adding them to the card. No colouring either for this as I used one of the pre coloured images from one of the design sheets.
Anyway, have a happy crafty weekend and I’ll see you soon

Hello Mo fans, I’m back today with my Friday inspiration for Mo’s Dream team.

 For my card today I have used Sugar & spice and coloured her in with my Polychromo pencils

I embellished the card with some flat backed gems and flowers.
Then it was on to the insert, this card is for a cousin of mine so added a cheeky greeting inside (she likes her gin) and I thought it was quite fitting lol.

The writing on the wall



Hello my crafty peeps I hope you are all well.
I have something different to share with you today as you know I  have decided to dip my fingers into mixed media and art journaling and have covered a couple of art journal books all ready for me start, so I thought I better make a start.


So for my first page this is what I came up with and I have to say I’m really pleased with it. I used a couple of new things to me on it hoping they turned out OK and they really did.
Firstly I stamped the image which is called Francesca she is one of the Wonky Tonk Girls by Tracy Easson. I love these girls (yes I have them all eekkk). I coloured her with my polychrome onto watercolour card. Now I went for a darker skin tone as I knew the background was going to be darker in places. I’m really pleased with how she turned out considering I usually do a lighter tone, and of course she rocks the pink hair!!

For the background I gesso’d the page firstly then added my texture paste (this is the other first) usually I use homemade texture paste, but I saw somewhere (proably in youtube) you can use poly filer. So I was intrigued and so I brought some I got the interior kind which is finer and more smooth in texture and the exterior which is more coarse. I used both on the page using the exterior on the brick stencil and the finer one on the bubbles and cross effect.  The brick and dots stencil are by Imagination Crafts and the other one is by Creative Expression.(all links below)


The ink sprays I used were by cosmic shimmer and ranger distress sprays
Once I was happy with the colour I let it dry then stamped some of the small stamps which came with the Wonky Tonk Girls and then I also used a mini script stamp from paperArtsy just to add interest.
I wanted the wall to look a little like it had been graffitied so I took the word stamps from the Wonky Tonk Girls stamped them onto a coloured water coloured scrap I had then fussy cut them out then added to the wall randomly.

To finish off I added some gilding wax here and there and there you have it. I hope you like it as much as I do and I’ll see you soon.
