Hello Lovely for LOTV

Hello lovely peeps, and welcome to my new follower :o)


Just popping in to tell you about Lili of the Valley's Facebook challenge for December - it's Anything Goes this month, so nice and easy.

For my inspiration card I've used Thoroughly Modern Misses - January with a winter birthday theme.

It's Christmoose

Hello lovely peeps


It's the first Saturday of the month (aargh, it's December already) so it's time for a new challenge over at Crafty Calendar. Our theme this month is "It's Christmas".

We have two fab sponsors this month:- 


and 



For my inspiration card I've used Moose Ornaments from Bugaboo, which I printed onto Simply the Best card from Limetree Crafts and coloured with Promarkers/Flexmarkers (with a couple of Graph'Its/Marvy markers thrown in).


To turn the picture into a bauble I die-cut it into a circle and then cut out the cap and hook shape* from a scrap of yellow card. I edged both pieces with Antique Linen distress ink and added a green organza bow. 

* (I enlarged the 'red' bauble on my computer until it was the same size as my die-cut circle, printed it onto thin paper and cut it out to make a template)


Other ingredients:-
computer sentiment using Troutkings font
Cookin Cookies papers from Nitwit
Sizzix holly die
standard 2 hole punch
white uni-ball gel pen
red card
3D foam

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:- 
 The Ribbon Girls Any image
Catch The Bug  merry and bright
Fab 'n' Funky #373 Christmas
Crafting By Designs December Anything Goes
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog #357 Anything Goes 

Thanks for stopping by,

Cream Cake

Hello lovely peeps


For today's card I've used Cream Cake by Lili of the Valley which I stamped once onto thin white card and again onto my background card. I coloured the first version in with Promarkers and fussy cut it out before glueing it on top of the second version.

Forever Friends Bear on Throwback Tuesday

Hello lovely peeps and welcome to my new follower :o)


For today's card I've used a Forever Friends stamp from Docrafts, dated 2008. When I first started buying my own cards as a teenager (many moons ago) I invariably bought one with a FF bear on it so when the images came out as rubber stamps I couldn't resist buying a few.

Tug of War

Hello lovely peeps


Just popping in to show you the birthday card that I made for my sister (Happy Birthday Clairey). She has a black labrador puppy and is spending lots of time training him at the moment so I thought this LOTV image was perfect for her card.
