Scene It Sunday #77 Featuring Mr McGregor from Hello Bluebird

Good Morning and welcome to today's Scene It Sunday post. This week I am using one of my adorable sets from Hello Bluebird, which I am very lucky to have. You cannot (yet) buy these in the UK but there is a seller in Germany who has a few sets that I was able to order from before Brexit kicked in! It's just a shame that they don't have many sets and none of the new ones or the dies anymore!  Anyway here's my card using these cute little bunnies enjoying the sunshine outside in their garden!  This card is for Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #174 Anything Goes SheepSki Designs Challenge #58 Square Creative Knockouts Challenge #435 Something To Say Aud Sentiments Challenge #290 Anything Goes + A Sentiment CCEE Stampers Challenge New   (My stamp set has never been used before!)

Something Else on Saturday #138 Featuring Uptown Girl Ava Loves To Celebrate from Stamping Bella

Good morning and Happy Saturday! Welcome to my Something Else on Saturday post for this week! Today I am using one of my many unused Stamping Bella stamps. I love these ones and often stamp them as soon as I buy them, but then forget that I have them already stamped out! So now instead of buying new stamps (I have definitely resisted so far this year, although we're not yet a full month into it!) and am going through all my folders of stamped and printed images to use.  Anyway here is Uptown Girl Ava! I absolutely love this combo of hot pink, orange and dark brown. One of the few times I used orange outside of Hallowe'en creations!  This card is for Creatalicious Challenge #227 Anything Goes A Gem of a Challenge #2 Anything Goes A Bit More Time To Craft January Challenge Anything Goes Creative Fingers Challenge #222 Anything Goes Colour Crazy Craft Challenge Week 2 Anything Goes Polkadoodles Challenge Week 3 Anything Goes Recipe: Stamps:  Uptown Girl Ava Loves To Celebrate fro

The Paper Shelter Challenge #494 - Colour It

Good morning everyone and welcome back to another challenge from The Paper Shelter . Both design teams have taken a much deserved break over the holiday period and are now back, starting with Team B, bringing you lots of fun and exciting challenges each week.  To start off the year easily, our first challenge of 2022 is to colour something on your card or project. You can use any medium you wish as long as we can see it has a coloured in element on your card.  I used the fabulous Rebel for my card, who I coloured with my Copic markers. I also created the background, so it looked a bit like a graffiti wall (perfect for the rebel in her!) using a stencil and my Distress Oxides inks. This card is for Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Fun With Stencils Digi Choosday Challenge Week 2 Anything Goes Dream Valley Challenge #261 Something New   (My stencil is new) The Corrosive Challenge #1 Anything Goes Digi Design Challenge Try/Use Something New (My stencil is new!)

All Things Magical and Mythical #20 Featuring Fairy Tales from Holly Durr

Good morning and welcome to this week's All Things Magical and Mystical post. This week I am sharing the front cover of this year's reading journal that I have made. It is basically the same as last year's with a few changes for the pages inside. I make my own one as I cannot find exactly what I want in a published version. At least this way I know I will use it. I used last year's all the time and loved being able to see all the books I had read and my quick reviews along with my ARCs (advanced reader copies) for the author's teams that I am part of! Anyway... this project uses Fairy Tales from Holly Durr which I bought from Sweet Pea Stamps many many years ago before they closed down. Shamefully, I have never used this image before, but it worked perfectly for this year's reading journal's cover! And a close up of her hair so you can see the purple highlights better...

Scene It Sunday #76 Featuring Lucky Ducks from Time For Tea Designs

Good morning and welcome to today's Scene It Sunday post. I am still keeping up with my new year's crafty goal for using my new stamp sets or unused digi images and for today's card I have used the adorable Lucky Ducks stamp set from Time For Tea Designs. I decided to go for yellow and black ducks and used my Scenescape dies to make this cute interactive scene. I stamped that background stamp twice and then fussy cut it out (not an easy task but worth it in the end!). Had to go for a rainbow in the background as well!  This card is for Allsorts Challenge Week 658 Anything Goes Creative Fingers Challenge #222 Anything Goes Crafty Catz Challenge #577 Anything Goes Colour Crazy Craft Challenge Week 1 Anything Goes Polkadoodles Challenge Week 2 Anything Goes Through The Purple Haze Challenge #188 Anything Goes Recipe: Stamps: Lucky Ducks from Time For Tea Designs Papers: Wild Wasabi (Retired), Marina Mist (Retired), Soft Sky (Retired) & Basic White all from Stampin' Up

Something Else on Saturday #137 Featuring Rebecca Raspberry from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps

Good morning and welcome to today's Something Else on Saturday post. I don't generally set myself crafting goals at the beginning of each new year, but I am trying this year to use more of what I already have rather than buying more stamps, more dies and more patterned papers, so I have dug out one of my very first Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps sets for today's card.  I don't often use the same stamps more than once. No idea why really as they do cost a fair amount of money so I should do to get the most out of them. I suppose as I have so many now after so many years of card making that I keep trying to use new ones each time. But anyway, I really liked going back and using this older set.  And here is she...so different to the first card I made with her, which you can see here . This card is for Pattie's Creations Challenge #190 Anything Goes Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge #512 Anything Goes Through The Craft Room Door Challenge Anything Goes The Paper Funday Ch

Stampers Delights Inspiration Post Featuring Kawaii Miss Kitty

Good evening! Welcome to my first DT post of the month for Stampers Delights.

All Things Magical and Mythical #19 Featuring Giggle Fairy from Some Odd Girl

Good morning and welcome to my first All Things Magical and Mystical post of 2022! It's back to work for me today for a training day before the children come back to school tomorrow! I hope it's not too intense today! Not sure my holiday brain can take it all just yet! LOL I had a bit of a sort out of my printed and stamped images over the Christmas holidays and found loads of images that I haven't used, so I am now trying to make my way through some of these older ones as well as all the stamp sets I have yet to use! This cutie is Giggle Fairy from Some Odd Girl, which is no longer available unfortunately! I went for a red and green combo to go with the apple in her hair (I guess it could be ant rounded fruit, but I chose to make it an apple!).
