LeAnn's World 101 Challenge #29 Anything Goes

Good Morning and welcome to a new challenge from LeAnn's World 101. This month, as always, our challenge is an Anything Goes challenge and you can use any image you wish to enter. However, if you use an image from LeAnn's Store, then you get an extra entry to win this month's challenge. 
I used the cute Kate At The Beach stamp for me card - ideal for the summer! Just wish we were heading to the beach this summer, but sadly with the current situation (and the crazy amounts of people at the beach here in the UK) we're not going away this year. I'm just not happy to take the risk to mingle with so many strangers just yet!

Scene It Sunday #9 Featuring Peaceful Plushies from Clearly Besotted

Good morning and welcome to this week's Scene It Sunday post. I have a rather large collection of Clearly Besotted stamp sets and I am slowly trying to make my way through actually using them to make cards, rather than just stamping and colouring them! 
This card uses the adorable Peaceful Plushies and for a change, I made an A6 sized card. I rarely make cards this small, but these sets with smaller images, lend themselves well to this size.

Something Else on Saturday #67 Featuring Oddball Hippie from Stamping Bella

Happy Saturday! Welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post featuring the adorable Oddball Hippie from Stamping Bella. I love these Oddball stamps and this one is just gorgeous! While making a different card, I came across these very old retired patterned papers from Stampin' Up which I thought would go perfect with this card. I then found this stamp set by Taylored Expressions called Feelin' Groovy, which I had forgotten completely that I had. It was perfect for this card!

Good morning everyone and welcome to my DT post for this month's new release from Faery Ink. Today I am using 50s Peonies, a different style of image from Amanda from the usual fairies, gnomes and mermaids.

LeAnn's World 101 Inspiration Post For July

Good morning everyone and welcome to my DT inspiration post for LeAnn's World 101. This month I chose to use a digi which is definitely more me than anything else, especially during the summer holidays when I have more free time than usual! 
This is Bookworm, who I definitely am too! I have always been a reader ever since I could hold a book. I used to spend my pocket money buying a new book each week as a kid, belonged to a book club in school where you bought stamps each week to add up to buying a book, lived my teenage years with my nose in Tolkien and Terry Pratchett before discovering Dracula by Bram Stoker. That book triggered my love of all things supernatural and paranormal and now I tend to read Urban Fantasy books more than anything else. I am now on my 3rd Kindle (one died and one become too full!) and I have more books on there than I think I will ever manage to read in my lifetime (3000+) but if I don't read everyday, even if it's just for 15 minutes or so, I f…

Scene It Sunday #8 Featuring Belly Rubs from Sweet November Stamps

Good morning everyone and welcome to this week's Scene It Sunday post. This week I have used yet another of my mermaid images from Sweet November Stamps (I just love these images and all the different elements you can put together to make scenic images!).  This one is called Belly Rubs and I also used the reeds and lily pads from the Surfacing Background Builder Set.
The sentiment was created using letter stickers from the patterned paper pack I used. I love that the colours went perfectly with the rest of the card!

Stamps: Belly Rubs and Surfacing Background Builder Set both from Sweet November Stamps

Something Else on Saturday #66 featuring Purrfect Day by Heffy Doodle

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. I went a bit mad on buying stamps this month and found this cute set from Heffy Doodle which I had never seen before. I love cats and our cat has a similar cat tree, so I know I will get lots of use out of this set! 
i would love to have a huge brood of cats, but I don't think our 10 year old cat would accept any others invading her territory, but once she goes, I will be having a huge collection!

The Paper Shelter Summer Challenge Anything Goes

Good morning everyone and welcome to my DT post for this week's challenge from The Paper Shelter. It is our annual Summer challenge, which means it is an Anything Goes challenge. This challenge will last for 4 weeks to give the DT a summer break and it also means that we won't be commenting on your entries this time. 
For my card, I used the adorable The Incantation, which is a fairly new release. I love fairies and this one is just gorgeous and was a delight to colour too. I went for a pink and black combo - one of my faves and instead of colouring the background with Copics, I used my pearlescent chalks and I love the softer, shimmer they give to this image. You can't really see in the photo but I also added some sprakle to her wings and the spell smoke!

Scene It Sunday #7 Featuring Hanging With My Gnomies from My Favorite Things

Happy Sunday everyone! For today's Scene It Sunday card, I thought I would use the cute Hanging With My Gnomies set from My Favorite Things. I didn't buy the matching dies (I never do really) as I prefer using my money for more stamps and I quite enjoy fussy cutting my images out, but boy were some of these flowers fiddly to cut! 
As the stamps made this a busy card, I kept the sky and grass fairly plain and just cut some card for them. Sometimes a plainer background works!

Something Else on Saturday #65 Featuring Boba Tea from Mama Elephant

Good morning everyone and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post! It's the first Saturday of my 6 week summer holiday and I am so ready for the break from work! 
I bought this cute Boba Tea set when it was first released by Mama Elephant, stamped and coloured it as soon as I got it, but have only just got round to adding the coloured stamps to a card! We don't have the slimline sized card blanks here in the UK (not that I can find anyway), so I made my own and then added a Slimline Marquee Die from Whimsy Stamps over the top of the patterned paper. I also added some other papers in the window cut outs and as I had cut out lots of boba bubbles, I dotted them all over! I love how cute these little animals are!
