Happy New Year...

Happy New Year to you all, hope 2013 brings good health and happiness!!


A posse of Pippis'....

It's the last day of the year...yay the end of another one so I thought I would do something a wee bit different and share one of the best loved stamps from Sugar Nellie...PIPPI.

Now we all love Pippi...well I certainly hope you all do!!  Now Pippi has to be one of my favourites amongst others and I have made several cards using her, she is just so cute to colour including that little froggy friend of hers. So what I want you to do is make a new post with your Posse of Pippis for all to see.  Once you have done that come back and leave a link to your post in the comments box below and I will pull out a lucky Pippi for a wee surprise.

You have until 8th January (Elvis's birthday) to share your posse of Pippis!!

So here is my wee posse below!!

Happy New Year!!

Favourite 5 from 2012!!

Well another post from me today...I joined in with Debby's favourite Christmas cards so now it's time to share your favourite 5 cards from 2012!!  Check out Debby's blog for all the details.

Well how hard was this....eventually I have decided and hope you like which 5 I have chosen as my favourites.  You will see that I have not included any Pippi' was far too difficult cos I have made loads with Pippi and she would taken up all 5!!  I might do a separate Pippi posting in the next few days so watch this space.

Pillow Talk from Sugar Nellie and here's a link to my original post...

Sweet Blossom from Wee Stamps and here's a link to my original post...

Next post today....well I thought I had actually finished with my Christmas cards for 2012 however when I saw the sketch and the DT cards over at Sketch Saturday I had to just make one more!!

The papers are from MME - Winter Wonderland, the image is from Dilly Beans which I have coloured with copics and then added some glitter, I tied some Bakers Twine around the card and fixed it with a glittered snowflake and a button and finally I added some doodling....hope you like this one!!

Sweet 16....

Happy Sunday everybody....another miserable day here although it was snowing earlier but now it's raining!!

I made this card for Holly's friend who is 16 next week...hope she likes it!!

I have used a mixture of MME papers from different collections, I have used the MFT rolled royal rose die and again and cut out 2 die cuts and rolled them together to give a two tone effect, the swirly corner die is from Magnolia and the numbers have been cut by hand ...goodness knows what I have done with my numbers!! The stamp is from Sugar Nellie - Fabulous Darling which has been coloured with copics.  I added some pearls and some doodling to finish.

Not a Christmas card.....

Hey beautiful people on this very miserable day!!  At least I am off work for 2 days but back on Monday, so before I get on with the less important stuff like housework, I thought I would have a little play and here is what I've created.

The stamp is from LOTV which I have coloured with copics (new ones on order), the papers are from MME - lost and Found 3 - Oliver collection...yummy!!  The flowers have been cut using my die-namics rolled royal rose die but I did something a bit different...I layered 2 different coloured die cuts and rolled them gives a two tone look and it does actually look quite good IRL!!  i added lots of glitter and pearls.
