Born to .........


......Ride or rather Craft in my case.  Of course crafting covers everything from cards to baking, sewing, and even knitting.

But first let's look at my card.

For my Hubby's birthday I made this card and as he's a biker, One Wild Ride was perfect. Have you seen it in the Annual Catalogue?  It's super cool.

To create the little scene I teamed up the motorbike with Sheltering Tree.  I chose some autumnal colours for my tree using So Saffron and Pumpkin Pie. A few sponged clouds help finish it off.

Speaking of Autumn...... Can you believe we are now in September?

The bad news may be the end of Summer but the good news is our Autumn/Winter mini catalogue is here.  Check it out on my side bar.  Loads of scummy goodies in there to keep you busy during the dark evenings.

We've also got some cracking sales to have a look at.  25% off certain items until 21st September but keep checking back because it changes each week.

So back to other hobbies.

Check out the little cardie I made for our gorgeous little granddaughter.  It only took me 14 years!  Yep you heard right! I started it for my daughter (who is now 14), but never got it finished before she grew too big so it was put away.  With the news of our new addition I got the pins out and finished it in time for Niamh. 


I'll leave you with a picture of Niamh in the cardie. 


Isn't she just the cutest?

Take care xx

Zoo Babies


This is such a cute stamp set.  I've used Stampin' Up! markers to colour directly onto the stamps.  This means you can easily achieve different colours in your images.

I've first punched my images out using the postage stamp punch then attached to a Soft Sky Scallop Square. The card base is Pacific Point with a mat of Tempting Turquoise.  I stamped a banner of flags on the background from Banner Banter.  The sentiment also comes from this set.

I love these little critters such a shame they are now retired. 

Take care. xx

Pop of Paradise


Ooooh La La.  

Look at this Pop of Paradise.  Just had to pair it up with lush pinks.

This is my first play with some of the new items from the catalogue.  Not my usual choice of stamps but I love it.  It's good to challenge yourself.

I've used Melon Mambo, Brushed Gold, Basic Black and Whisper White to make this card "Pop".  The leaves and flamingo are stamped in the new In Colours - Emerald Envy and appropriately named Flirty Flamingo. The sentiment is stamped in Melon Mambo and to finish I punched out a small heart in Gold Foil.

We've had a lovely sunny weekend.  A pop of paradise at home! 

Take care.

Hot Diggity it's your birthday!


Hot Diggity Dog it's your birthday! 

Here's a cute little card for someone special.  I've used Hot Diggity Dog, Age Awareness and Birthday Basics Designer Series paper.  Oh and check the bling on the doggy's collar! 

For the design I've followed Less is More sketch this week. It was fun to follow the sketch as the old mojo really needs a dust. 

I liked the idea of the doggy walking by with the balloons floating above and thankfully found this balloon paper in my stash. 

Have you had a chance to look at the new catalogue yet?  It's brimming with loads of new lovely products just waiting to inspire you. 

Take care. x

14 and Simply Sassy!


My daughter turned 14 last weekend.  So grown up! It's a bit scary really, well for Mum and Dad! 

I always like to do a special card for her birthday and decided to choose this rather Sassy lady to colour using my Copic Sketch pens. 

Isn't she fab?  I've teamed her with Stampin' Up! products.  A stamped panel using Flower Shop In Basic Grey, Wisteria Wonder and Pear Pizzazz.  I then added a sentiment tag using Number of Years and the corresponding framelits. This set is super for adding numbers to your cards.

We took my daughter and her friends to Blair Drummond Safari Park for her birthday.  It was a brilliant day out.  The girls had a ball.  My daughter had a schedule all worked out so all my husband and I needed to do was have the picnic ready for them coming back to the car and of course being taxi drivers. 

This weekend she is off on a Guiding camp.  Must be great being 14!!!

Pieces of Swallowtail


Swallowtail is such a super large stamp.  Loads of detail and I've found a great way to display it! 

I've used a Sahara Stone card base for my card.  I stamped Swallowtail in Rose Red on Whisper White and cut it into pieces, then mounted them onto Elegant Eggplant panels. I used Perfect Pennants stamped in Elegant Eggplant for the sentiment. 

Hope you had a lovely weekend.

From the Herd


"It's pasture birthday.......hope it was great!"

Sometimes birthdays slip our minds so use a sweet stamp  like this to bring a smile. 

It was such a joy to colour using my Copics.  

I made it into a tag using a Crumb Cake base with an Early Espresso mat. 

Don't they look?  I'm sure I'd be forgiven if I sent this card!
