Up to its neck in hot water

(Please scroll down for the Lili of the Valley blog hop
with the deets on how to win prizes!)

I'm a bit late with this card - life is not running as smoothly or calmly as I would like it to be!  So the new September Whimsie Doodle challenge started a couple of days ago with the theme of Autumn colours so here is my Doodlelicious Diva make for it...

Yellow and orange are definitely reminders of Autumn for me but so is blue as we often get blue, sunny skies in September.  These papers by Zoe Pearn are perfect for it and I also used a WRMK embossing folder.  This little lady is from the Miss Adventure Tea with Abby stamp set available from the A Jillian Vance Designs store.

Get more Autumnal inspiration by the rest of the gorgeous Doodlelicious Diva at the blog here.

I'm back tomorrow with a Lili of the Valley sneak peek so see you then!

Lili of the Valley blog hop time!

The Lili of the Valley design team are having a blog hop today to showcase 6 new stamps of sweet girlies!  As you all know, the LOTV stamps are always the sweetest but I do especially love this release because of the different outfits they are all wearing - they are so sweet!  Here is my make using Cheerleader...

Isn't she fun?  And love her hair bouncing up like that with those cute pom poms too!  I used papers from the Candles and Cake pad and the sentiment is from the Handwritten Phrases set.  Lastly, I sprinkled some sequins (my current favourite embellishment!) around her to make it pop.
So back to the hop!  Do the usual thing and hop from post to post, leaving a comment on each along the way.  We have two full sets of these girls to win so good luck to all of you joining in!  You should have arrived here from lovely Lou and you now need to hop off to sweet Mindy.  If you need to start from the beginning, start at the Ideas to Inspire blog.
The new stamps which will be launched in our shop this Saturday at the open day and on the website next Monday.
I'll be back tomorrow with another sneak peek so see you then!

Thankful for you

Here is my other DT card for the SugarPea Designs September release that I didn't manage to share last week.  This one is called Bountiful Blessings and here is my DT making using this sweet set...

I love this set!  She is so pretty and I love the straw poking out like that with her tilted head!  I used more My Minds Eye papers and  Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Border dies. The fishtail banner is by La-La Land Crafts Stitched Elements set.  The flower border is a pre-cut die by Doodlebug which I coloured with my Copics to match the papers.

I hope you love her as much I do!  I'm off now but I'll be back again soon - ttfn!

Something came up which meant that I missed the SugarPea Designs September release sneak peeks.  The frustrating thing was that I had my cards made but I hadn't photographed them in time, but I've now had time to do that so here is one of the sneak peeks showcasing Let's Fiesta!

Now this is my most fave of this month's release (although only by a narrow margin as I love them all!).  I matched him up with My Minds Eye papers and used a Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Border die. The speech bubble is by La-La Land Crafts Stitched Elements set.

Our fabulous September release is available in the SugarPea Designs Online Shoppe so go check out the new goodies now! 

I'll be back soon next week so see you then!

La-La Land Crafts spooky new September release!

Yep, another day to showcase more of the super fun La-La Land Crafts September release and today I have a spooky card to show you!

Copics used:
Face: E000, E00, E21, R20
Hair: E35, E37
Outfit and presents: C01, C03, V12, V15, V17, Y21, YR23, YR27

Isn't he adorable?  If I had a little boy, I'd wrap him up like in bandages for Halloween just like this!  And I love the details of the dies - the little peek holes on the spider are perfect!  I layered several layers of the cobweb die and inked around the edges of the tombstone.  The paper is by Authentique.

Thanks for visiting and I'll see you on my blog rounds tonight!

Day 3 of the SugarPea Designs September release sweet sneaks!

It's day 3 of the  SugarPea Designs release and today we are showcasing an uber sweet set. This one is called Sniffles and Snuggles and when you see the image, you're gonna go "awwww!".  Check out my DT make using it...

Did you go "awwww!"?!  I kept this pretty simple - I tried adding embellishments but they just distracted from the gorgeous image!  I used October Afternoon papers.

Would you like to WIN this stamp set?! Hop along and visit with the SugarPeas and guests, leaving some comment love along the way! One lucky person will be randomly selected to win it!

I'll be back tomorrow with another sweet sneak so see you then!
