Did you ever want your very own pony?

I know I did!  And I saved every penny when I was a young girl so I could take the long bus ride to the nearest stables to ride a pony!  But alas, I never did get to own my very own but I do get to see them nearly every day now I live in the countryside.  *Sigh* - such beautiful creatures!

But, hey, you haven't come here to hear me reminisce!  But the card I am sharing today brings back those memories and I just adore the new Annabel Saddle Up stamp now available in the Lili of the Valley store.

Isn't she pretty?  And I also used the pretty papers from the Pastel Dreams pad and the sentiment is from the Scrolls Sentiments set.  I used Lawn Fawn's Stitched Scalloped Border and the that's a CC Designs Cutter grass border die.

Thank you for visiting me today - have a great day and I will see you again soon!

Woo hoo!

I was super chuffed to see that one of my cards for Lili of the Valley made it as the focal point on this month's edition of Simply Cards and Papercrafts #128!  Check this out...

My mum is going to be so proud when she sees this - it's almost like I'm a celebrity when I get in a mag, lol!  And here are all of the cards that are featured in this edition...

Using Penguin Pals...

These two using Ice Christmas...

These two using Frosty Fun...

This one using Snow Flurries...

And lastly this card also using Snow Flurries made it onto their blog as a bonus card...

I love these penguins!  And I also used papers from the new Festive Trimmings pad and sentiments from the Christmas Wishes stamp set.

Whew, that was a lot of cards I made in less than a week!  But it was well worth it to see them published!  I'm going to enter these into Squirrel's The Great Penguin Challenge 2014.

Now I'm off to bed to get a good rest for another busy, busy week at work!

My style!

This week's inspiration over at La-La Land Crafts is "show your style".  I guess my style is clean and simple so here is my DT make for it...

I used the beautiful Fancy Marci Rubber Stamp and also used the Cherry Blossom Flowers DieBerry Flourish die and Grass Border Die (which I layered for depth).  The papers are by Zoe Pearn.  
Copics used:

A spooky scene

I've got a card today to share that I had so much fun in creating!  It uses one of the new Whimsie Doodles Background Borders - Places and the witch from the very cute Little Boo's set...

Oh I so love these backgrounds!  And the set includes a Christmas, out of space and a farm scenes - I'm going to be busy playing with these - check them all out here.  I used Authentique papers and La-La Land Crafts Spiderweb Border die.

I'm off now to play with the others - you can find me in my craftroom!

Scarecrow cutie!

There's a new SugarPea Designs challenge starting today and the theme is Happy Fall!  So here is my DT make using one of my all time favourite sets Bountiful Blessings...

This little lady is so pretty and I love the bits of straw poking out!  And did you see the wee little mouse on the pumpkin?  What a cute detail!  The papers are by Lori Whitlock - the scenic paper was so perfect that I didn't need to add anything else to this card so it literally took me five minutes to put together once I'd finished colouring in.  What a time saver!

So I hope you can join in this week's challenge.  You can use any stamp you like for these challenges but if you win and use a SugarPea Designs set, we'll top your voucher up to $15!  Check out the deets and more gorgeous DT inspiration over at the blog.

Thanks for visiting and I'll be back on Friday with my DT make for La-La Land Crafts - ttfn!

Showcasing the La-La Land Crafts September Club Kit

Have you subscribed to the Club La-La Land Crafts Kits yet?  They are so super cute and I'm so lucky to be on the team so that I get to play with them to my hearts content!  We are showcasing the September Club Kit today and here are my two projects using it...

Isn't she adorable?  And I love the accessory stamps and dies in this kit too.  I die cut the branch twice - one in green cardstock and another in orange.  I snipped the orange leaves off and adhered them onto the green branch with foam pads to give it some depth.  The papers are by My Minds Eye and used my cloud folder for the background.

Copics used:
Face: E000, E00, E21, R20
Hair: E50, E53
Outfit: C01, C03, R20, R22
Pumpkins: R00, R02, R05, R08

Here is my second card...

So for this card I used from the kit the Boo banner, leaf and fence dies.  I also used the sweet girl, haystack and pumpkin stamps.  The papers are by Authentic and I used a polka dot embossing folder for interest in the background.

Face: E000, E00, E21, R20, C05, C07
Hair: E50, E53
Outfit: C03, C05, C07, C00, R20, R22
Pumpkins and hay bale: E02, E04, E08, E33, E37, Y21, YR23, YR27

Check out some more DT inspiration over at the blog here and you can find all the details on how to subscribe to the Club La-La Land Crafts kits here.

I'm off now but I'll be back soon - ta ra!

If dogs could speak

Would you believe it, but I managed to make a card just for the sake of creating and not for a DT commitment.  And I must say that I really enjoyed it and must do more of it!  

I recently bought the Paper Smooches Dog Icons die set from Make The Day Special and lovely owner Tara threw in a sample of their new Peel and Stick Veneer.  I used these lovely items to make this thank you card...

I also used the Make The Day Special sketch in their current challenge which was perfect for these dies!  The papers are from an old Crate Paper pad and I used My Favorite Things alpha dies for the "woof" and popped them on foam pads for extra depth.  I can't remember which brand the speech bubble die is from but there are so many out there now!  Inside the card I will write "Woof is dog for thank you".

I'm off to make some dinner now but I'll be back tomorrow with my Doodlelicious Diva make.  Enjoy the rest of your evening!
