Annabel Goes Camping

Morning.. It's difficult to have a favourite out of the new Annabel Stamps as they are all gorgeous... This one reminded me so much of going on cub camp with my mum when I was little in the old fashion tents!

It's simply coloured in with alcohol markers and I've used the lil inkers stitched rectangle ....

Remember you can pick up these cuties at the shop on Saturday or on the website Monday!

Have a great Thursday

Annabel Goes To The Rodeo..... LOTV New Release Blog Hop!

Morning... It's that time again where we have an LOTV design team blog hop to celebrate a new release.  This time we have 6 fabulous Annabel images... You will want them all!!


You know the score... You visit each of the DT in turn and leave them a comment giving you a chance to win one of two sets of the new stamps! Here is the list of the team taking part!

I have used my favourite one of the release and was so excited to see Annabel as a cowgirl.. I'm a bit partial to some Lady Antebellum ... Here she is!

I'm trying to use up a very large stash of designer papers.. it may possibly be a slow process!

Next on your hop is Lou .... Make sure you pop on over!

Have a great Wednesday...

Tis The Season

Morning... I'm still in Christmas card mode and have this super cutie from the last LOTV release for you.  I think these penguins were def my favourite! I've coloured this little guy in traditional colours!

Sorry I'm rushing today.. Need to get loads done before back to work tomorrow.. Hopefully that includes some crafting!

Have a great Sunday

Santa is coming to town

Morning.. So it's another Christmas card for you today and I used some new products.. The Stampin Up blendabilities.  I must say I was very dubious about these ... But after trying Lizy's I had to buy them.. They match my SU card stock perfectly and there is no thinking about which colours to blend with each they have done all the work for you! Even more delighted by the fact the red is a proper christmas red and it doesn't bleed all over like my promarkers and copic reds seem to!

Enough waffling, onto the card ....

I'll be home tonight from Vienna and a crazy weekend ahead decorating and visiting friends!

Have a great Friday

Feed The Birds..

Afternoon.. Sorry this is a little late it was supposed to be scheduled for this morning! I've been busy making a few Christmas cards this month .. this uses a super cute image from last months LOTV release! I used my promarkers for it then added the white with a prisma pencil!

Once I had coloured in the little guy I ran it through the Linen embossing from PTI.. love the effect of doing this once you have coloured in an image!

I'll be back tomorrow with yet another christmas card using goodies from my SU order!

Brusho Snowflakes

Morning.. I have a super quick card for you today using a new product I picked up at Sincerely Yours in Leigh a couple of weeks ago.  It's called Brusho and it's like powdered watercolour ... you sprinkle and then spray water on to get loads of different effects! This is what I did with it.. I simply added one of the new CBS snowflake dies on top ...

Card Recipe:
Brusho in OST Blue
Glitter card from SU
Snowflake die from Clearly Besotted

I'm off to Vienna this afternoon for the rest of the week with work... So hopefully my scheduled posts will work for the rest of the week..

Have a great Wednesday

Tagging Along

Morning... yes I know it's early but I thought I would share with you a quick project using one of the Christmas Mini Icons sets from LOTV.  I love this set and it's perfect for making very quick tags for your presents! I also used one of the sentiments from the Christmas Wishes set!

They were so quick and easy to make... and the white.. A wink of stella pen perfect for a few little bits of contrast!

Sorry I have to be quick today... Early start at work...

I'm With Genius...

Morning.. Wow 2 days in a row... It's been a while since I've done that!

I have a card perfect for back to school this week using one of my all time favourite Tiddly Inks images.... I'm trying really hard to use stash that hasn't seen daylight for a while or has never seen daylight (digi images, DSPs etc etc) so you will see some stuff coming out of the wood work in the next few weeks for sure... I'm also selling off a bit of stash in the next couple of weeks so look out for that too!
Anyhow, enough waffling... This is Genius!

Also, by complete fluke it kinda fits in with this weeks Tiddly Inks Challenge too... #140 Pop of Colour!!

Card Recipe:
Image: Genius from Tiddly Inks
DSP: My Minds Eye
Colouring Medium: ProMarkers/Copics on Neenah Desert Storm card ( I love this!1)
Lil Inkers Stitched Rectangles

Hope you have a great Thursday!! Fingers crossed I'll have some pictures of my new studio for you over the weekend if I manage to tidy up tonight... I really need to learn to be a tidy crafter!

Goodbye Old Friend

Morning... Remember me!!  I've now settled into my new job and trying to get some crafting done... I think having all that time off before I forgot that crafting de-stressed me and made me relax.. It had become a chore instead of something I enjoyed!

I spent some time crafting last week and over the weekend and I'll be showing you later in the week but first it's time to say goodbye to an old friend... Magnum!!

Kerry at Ladybug Crafts Ink is closing the doors to her stamp company so invited me to take part in the last ever challenge.... There is also a sale on at the shop... Stamps are just £1!!!!!

Here is the card I made using my all time favourite Magnum... I'm going to miss him!

I had every intention of colouring him it... But as I put the card together to decide what I was using I decided I rather liked the uncoloured image!

You can pick up Magnum and his Add on's (whilst stocks last) over at the shop...

That's it from me for today, but before I go.. Thanks for sticking with me over the most random year that is 2014... Have a great Wednesday...
