Foxer Upper Girl

Foxer Upper Girl (4)

Morning all. It’s time for another Fab Friday post over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog but sniff sniff boo hoo it’s my last DT card as our 4 month term finishes now. I’m really quite sad as I have had a wonderful time creating with Christy’s images and the lovely team of girls I’ve got to work with. I just have to keep my fingers (and toes) crossed as I have applied again for the next term.

Just over a week ago Christy teamed up with Paper Crafters Library and to coincide with the feature released a new image called Foxer Upper including both girl and boy images. I created a card using the girl version and was lucky enough to have it shown on the Paper Crafters Library Tiddly Inks Feature.

Here is the tag shaped card that I created, also using a sentiment from the Wryn New Wings set:

Right best get back to the house work….Now the builders have gone I’m in a Spring Cleaning mode (just 6 months late lol) and I’m slowly working my way around each room top to bottom including washing all the curtains and linens.

DT Call at Tiddly Inks

Wryn Have Heart (3)

Afternoon All. I’m enjoying a rare day with no children! They stayed at my parents last night so Hubby and I  could go out and celebrate our Wedding Anniversary.  It’s not all fun and games though I’m in the middle of a big clean up as the builders have finished and I’ve got to move us back into our bedroom and ensuite…….you wouldn’t believe how far the dust went.

Anyhoo back to the point of my post….the DT call at Tiddly Inks. The card I made for the call is my Hubby’s Anniversary card, so I couldn’t post it until I’d given it to him. I’ve used Wryn Have Heart but if you would like to take a look at my other Tiddly Inks makes please click here

I was a bit brave on this one as I attempted to colour the background to look like wallpaper…I think it turned out OK!

Little Lamb

Little Lamb (1)

Afternoon all!

Anyhoo, enough waffle it’s time for a new challenge at Elisabeth Bell’s World Challenge and our theme this time around is Use at least 4 Designer Papers. I’ve used 4 different papers from  the Fairy Belle Collection from Prima Marketing and started to make a patchwork background. Here is my card:

Little Lamb (2)

Not quite a patchwork….I decided when I was part way through to leave a small gap between the pieces to make it look more like tiles…..obviously inspired by having my ensuite redone!!

The image is the adorable Little Lamb, I would say she is my favourite but that wouldn’t be true as I love all of Elisabeth’s beautiful digis.

Buttons & Bows at Kraftin’ Kimmie

Treat for Someone Sweet (10)

Afternoon all! It’s Saturday  and that means it’s time for a new challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. This week we have a super theme of Buttons & Bows.

I’ve used one of the August release stamp sets A TREAT FOR SOMEONE SWEET and made this very cute and girly creation:

Treat for Someone Sweet (5)

I love black and pink together and I haven’t used them for a while so I thought they would be perfect for this card. The background was dry embossed, inked and then heat embossed and I really love the way it turned out.
