Fantasy Friday #22 Featuring Christmas Fairy Holly from Mo's Digital Pencil

Good morning and welcome to the final Fantasy Friday post for 2018! I have really enjoyed doing this post each week using some of my old or never before used stamps and hope to keep it up in the new year.

This week I am using the adorable Christmas Fairy Holly from Mo Manning at Mo's Digital Pencil. I just love her dress! For once I didn't add a sentiment, but thought it looked ok without one.

Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Post

Good afternoon and welcome to my inspiration post for Little Miss Muffet Stamps for this week. As it is the Christmas/holiday season, instead of making a new project we are all sharing an old favourite of ours from the past year. I have chosen to share again this beauty - Polka Dot Pals Attina.



I love how her hair came out on this colouring and I love the background too. You can read all about her on my original post here.

Blue Blue Christmas

Good morning and welcome to my final post of the year for Faery Ink. Today I have used the gorgeous Christmas Tree Gabbie to make an early Christmas card for next year.


You can find all the details of this card over on the Faery Ink blog.

Good morning and welcome to my latest Fantasy Friday post! This week I am sharing with you all another gift tag, this time using the adorable Snowflake Sprite from Aurora Wings. I love these characters and have loads of them, but never get round to using them!

Little Miss Muffet Customer Appreciation Day

Good morning and welcome to my latest post for Little Miss Muffet Stamps. Hopefully you visited my post last week to let you know that the current challenge will be the final one on the Little Miss Muffet Stamps challenge blog.

Today, however, is Customer Appreciation Day and Barbara has released some fabulous images just for her customers this time. I have the sweet Fill A Wheelbarrow with the flowers image that you can merge together to make a sweet thank you card - perfect image for all the Christmas thank yous that will need sending out soon. The colours are a bit off on this card as the flowers are a lot darker than in real life - the red/pink ones are a fuschia pink really!

The Paper Shelter Challenge Anything Goes

Good morning and welcome to my last DT post for the Paper Shelter for 2018! Hasn't this year flown by?! Lots of good things have happened this year and a few not so good things too. Let's hope that 2019 will continue with the good!

Our challenge this time is an Anything Goes challenge and will last for three weeks, taking us into the new year. The next challenge will be back on January 9th with Team A's first challenge of the year!

I used the cute Merry Christmas My Dear for one of my last Christmas cards and made a fairly big card (just over 7 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches I think!), so the embellishments were kept to a minimum. I did attempt to colour the background to look a bit like there was panelling on the walls, but my pens were running out towards the end, so weren't as good as I had hoped for!

Wishing You Everything On Your List...

Good morning and welcome to another Christmas card post of mine! I have bought so many new Christmas themed stamps this year and, like most crafters I bet, I haven't used all of them yet! I may make a few more ready for next year as I found a box with about 7 in that I made last year or at the beginning of this year, so that saved me some time. I do love making Christmas cards and you never know how many you will need to send out, so best to have a small stash built up just in case you get caught short!

This card uses the cute Signs of Santa from Stampin' Up, but with Mr and Mrs Claus this time, not just the elves which I used on a previous card here. I used some of my old retired papers as well and this set, called Merry Moments, is almost finished up! Once I no longer have any pieces big enough to do anything worthwhile with, I throw the leftovers away!

Oh Kitty Tree, Oh Kitty Tree, How Lovely Are Thy Kitties!

Good morning and welcome to another random post from me, sharing another of my Christmas cards. My Mother-in-law always has a few from me to send to the rest of her kids and friends and one of her friends is a huge cat lover, so always has a cat card! I just had to use this adorable Oh Kitty Tree stamp from Mama Elephant for this one and went for a grey set of cats!

Fantasy Friday #20 Featuring Snowflake Dancer from Wee Stamps

Good morning and welcome to my 20th Fantasy Friday post! I have really enjoyed making the cards for this post every week and love all the different stamps that I have been using instead of letting them just collect dust, or in the case of digis, just sitting on my computer!

Today's post features Snowflake Dancer from Wee Stamps, which I bought as a digi stamp ages ago, probably years ago, and have never used! Isn't she just a darling though?! I went for a purple colour combo as this card is for my best friend Michele, whose favourite colour is purple. I did get carried away with all the flowers but I do love how it came out in the end!

Good morning and welcome to my new GDT post for the Colour Crazy Craft Challenge. This week the sponsor is Oddball Stamps and I have used the cute Christmas Baby Deer with Bow digi stamp to make a sweet gift tag.

Little Miss Muffet Stamps Challenge #204 Anything Goes

Good morning and welcome to my post for the final challenge from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. Barbara and Lyn have decided to close the challenges and move all the fun and excitement to the Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Facebook Groupinstead. Do not worry though, the DT will still be posting our cards there weekly for you and once the new year begins, lots more fun will be coming your way!

I used the cute Polka Dot Pals Noeleen for my card this week and tried to do an ice patch under her skates so it did look like she was skating using some Crystal Effects over my Copic shading.

Fantasy Friday #19 Featuring Frosty Fairy Friends from Lawn Fawn

Good morning and welcome to this week's Fantasy Friday post. This is my fourth card in a row that happens to be pink! I think there might be a theme appearing here - fairies and pink go together so well, just like bread and jam!

I used the adorable Frosty Fairy Friends from Lawn Fawn for this one and just stamped several of the stamps in the set to create a sweet, little scene. Everything was coloured with my Copics and then touches of clear star Gelly Roll Pen added for a little sparkle. I used Liquid Applique for the snow and tried to avoid the grass I had added so you can just see a few blades peeking through the fluffy, white snow.

The Paper Shelter 8th Anniversary Blog Hop!

Good Morning everyone and welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop. This is in celebration of them reaching their 8th Birthday on December 8th. It will be a two week Challenge and both Design Teams are taking part.


The blog hop is our way of inviting you to join in with us and this one is a "BIRTHDAY/ CELEBRATIONS" theme, which I know is extremely popular!
If you have landed here from Patsy's blog then you're heading in the right direction - if not then you'll want to head on back to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to start again, as you'll not want to miss out on this one! 
Our Design Teams have worked very hard and are showcasing the gorgeous images available from The Paper Shelter website and each blog on the hop is offering one lucky commentator a digi of their choice as well as the main prize, details of which are on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot.
I decided to go for a Christmas celebration card as the day is getting awfully close and I am not yet …

The Paper Nest Dolls Snow Princess

Hello everyone and welcome to another Christmas card post from me today! I have used the gorgeous Snow Princess from The Paper Nest Dolls for this card and coloured her in a turquoise/teal/aqua colour combo courtesy of my boyfriend's colour choices!

As I printed her larger than I thought I went for a bigger card base, 7.5 inches square and although it is huge I love all that extra space to play with. It does mean I end up adding loads of layers to fill in all the gaps as I am not CAS kind of card maker at all and cannot leave any white spaces!

I used up lots of smaller scraps of patterned papers on this card as well and have almost finished this pack now! Need to start using up my old stash (to make way for some new stuff!)
