My 1st attempt with PM's

This was attempt with my new PM's the image is Lilly with Present from Digi stamp Boutique. I used my fantastic new PM's to colour her in.
For her Lilly I used
Hair Cinnamon
Skin Blush
Bow and shoes Rose Pink and Blossom
Dress Amethyst and Lavender
Pressie Cornflower, China Blue, Apple and Meadow Green.
I matted her onto purple paper from a Rob and Bob studio pack and then onto a patterned paper from the same pack which was also layered onto the same purple.
These were then embellished with daisies punched from paper and then gem flowers from a papermania pack purchased some time ago.
With Love stamp is from a Daisy and Dandelion stamp set.
I do hope you like her, I am going to enter her in the Passion for Promarkers 1st challenge, wish me luck LOL

My new goodies arrived!!!!

Was feeling super sorry for myself this morning as I was working until 2.15 and unable to go to the opening of a new craft shop. My friend Karen did however manage to go and she bought some fantastic goodies was so jealous LOL . Well finished my shift which was actually a very good one and headed home. My hubby welcomed me home by telling me a package arrived this morning. And WOOOOOOOHOOOOOO my promarkers arrived.

I had initially ordered 4 but then decided to take the bull by the horns and I ordered a total of 19. There are masses more that i have my eye on, def need to get another skin tone, greys, more pinks, more blues, more greens, OMG I need the all LOL. Have been tinkering a little bit but not made a card yet as me and the boys were enjoying the sunshine in the garden this afternoon. Here is a wee pic of my new goodies, hope to get cracking and enter the promerker challenge for anything goes. Watch this space. Hope everyone is getting lots of sunshine this weekend.

1st Challenge


This is my very 1st entry got a challenge. Have decided to enter The C.R.A.F.T Challenge. As it's a new challenge blog the challenge was to make a card with a NEW theme. I have chosen to make a NEW BABY card and here it is

I used Joanna Sheen's Messy rabbit baby stamp for the main image and water coloured her. the wee bots were then flocked and a the image was decoupaged. I also used the cuttlebug baby embossing folder for the side panel, and these were mounted into pink card from my stash. As this was actually for someone I added the craft creations gold peel off's with the message Congratulations on your New baby and embellished with two pink gem hearts. Sorry it's not a great picture my camera is well and truly on the blink so had to use my phone which does not have the best camera in the world.

Hope you have all had a fantastic Sunday.

At last a post

Thought it was about time a popped something on my blog. I mean what's the use of having one if I don't post on it from time to time.

I have been growing wild with Sugar Nellie stamps as they are so adorable. I did buy some at the SECC when I was there in October last year and this past week have ordered another four. I treated myself to Daisy, Post Box, Reflective and one of the Gorjuss Girls Sitting.

Have made my very 1st card using the wonderful Sugar Nellie stamps. My friend has not been very well this past while so i thought i would make a card especially for her. She adores the Daisy stamp from Sugar Nellie so i thought I would use her. Hope you like the card.

For this card I stamped Daisy onto Iced gold card stock from my local paper mill, water coloured her (although one day I hope to be able to use Pro Markers). The paper is from a pack of Rob and Bob Studio papers I bought from QVC some time ago. The daisies were punched out of matching papers from the pack and the gems are papermaina self adhesive ones.

Anyhoo hope you liked the card and I so hope that I manage to keep this blog going
