Things just goat serious

There's a new SugarPea Designs challenge starting today and the theme is to keep it CASE - my favourite kind of challenge!  Here is my DT take on it...

I love this fella!  He is from the Totes Ma Goats set along with that excellent sentiment!  I used the new La-La Land Crafts Picket Fence die and October Afternoon papers.  I then simply finished it off with my corner chomper.

I hope you can join us for this challenge - you don't have to use SugarPea Designs stamps but if you do you can win more!  The prize is $10 gift voucher to the store and an extra $5 if you use a SugarPea Designs stamp.  Check out the rest of the gorgeous DT inspiration over at the blog here and deets on how to win !

Hey Gill Friend

A very happy Tuesday to you all!  I hope you all enjoyed a lovely long Easter weekend and not long now (here in the UK anyway!) for another long weekend!

So I'm here today with another Doodlelicious Diva make using the new clear Seas the Day stamp set that you can buy from the A Jillian Vance Design store...

I love this cutie - just look at those plump lips!  And the font in this set is just brilliant - whimsical yet fun!  I matched him up with Bo Bunny Barefoot and Bliss papers and my Cuttlebug bubble embossing folder for interest.

I hope you like him as much as I do!  I'm off now but will be back soon - ttfn!

Spring is in the air!

Well, I think it is - the sun has been out but it's still soooooo cold!  I'm still wearing my winter coat!  Hey ho, at least it's not raining.

So it's my second week as a La-La Land Crafts guest designer and this week we had the theme of Spring/Easter.  Here is my card with the Spring theme...

Well most of you will know that this is NOT me - I hate gardening!!  But I do love this very sweet girl.  She is called Marci with Flower and the sentiment is from the Suitcase Set.  I also used the gorgeous Berry Flourish, trimming it to frame her. The papers are by Digital Design Essentials.

Copic Markers used
Skin - E000, E00, E11, R20
Lips - R20, R22
Hair - Y11, Y13, Y15
Top and hairband - V20, V22, V25
Jeans - B12, B14, B16

Fairy good friends

We have been reviewing some of our older fairy stamps over at Lili of the Valley recently so the design team decided to have a fun hop using the very sweet Fairy Friends stamp.  Here is my take on it...

This is such an adorable stamp!  I matched them up with papers from the Promises pad and also die cut the flourishes and punched the flowers out using the new Promises Solids paper pad.  It's so nice having everything coordinated rather searching through my piles of cardstock to match up the colours!  I also added lots of Stickles Star Dust glitter glue to the fairies so they really pop off the card - here's a closer look...

Okay, so back to the hop - there are prizes to be won!  Just join the hop and leave some love along the way.  The winners will be announced on Monday morning over at the Ideas to Inspire blog.

2 lucky random winners will each be able to choose 2 of the small fairy stamps as their prize!

You should have got here from Lou and you now need to hop off to Mindy.  If you want to start from the beginning, go to the Ideas to Inspire blog here where you'll also find all the deets.

Well I'm off now but I'll be back on Friday with my Guest Designer card for La-La Land Crafts - ttfn!

Sea-ing you makes me smile

It's time a new Whimsie Doodles challenge and for April the theme is April Showers - so basically anything associated with water!  Here is my Doodlelicious Diva make using the new Seas The Day stamp set that you can buy from the Jillian Vance Designs shop...

Isn't he adorable?!  I love the font of the sentiment - whimsical yet cool!  I created the background using the bubble stamp in the set with Versamagic Sea Breeze ink and used my Nestability circle dies with metallic cardstock to create the porthole (I love doing this!).  And I got to use some of my zillions of brads up too!  Take a closer look at this fab set...

Check out the rest of the gorgeus Diva makes over at the blog here.  Have a lovely day and I'll see you tomorrow with our Lili of the Valley blog hop!

Easter sweeties!

I can't believe it's Easter next weekend!  I have to get my skates on and make a few more cards.  Luckily I had the gorgeous Lili of the Valley Easter Sweeties stamp to hand so I made this...

I love this stamp - it so so adorable!  I fussy cut out all of the duckies used a sentiment from the Simply Sophisticated set.  I also useMy Minds Eye Notable papers and CC Designs Cutter grass die.

Right, I'd better go and make some more cards!  :)

Is it Spring yet? I think so!

I'm here today with a card that I think accurately represents our UK Spring - that's to say it's still a little chilly in the shade!  I think newbie Skinny Jeans Abby accurately represents what I'm currently wearing - a scarf to keep that wind out!

I used My Minds Eye Notable papers with the cloud and sun die cuts using My Favorite Things dies.  The sentiment is from the Lili of the Valley Simply Sophisticated set.  I've placed a few daisies around too for some added interest.

Okay, I am off now to get ready for our meal out tonight at our favourite restaurant.  I've hardly eaten today so I can relax and enjoy what I want!  I hope you have a lovely evening planned to!
