New Willow sketchie challenge.

Time for another Willow Sketchie challenge and this time we played with a new fairy download. We also had a recipe to play with, which was something green, some checks and use a scrap of fabric.
Here's mine . I made the lollipop flowers using some felt and my nesties and I sewed the tiny buttons on. I also made the gingham rosette using a scrap of material, sewing a running stitch bothe sides. I'm very pleased with my big funky flowers!!

Beautiful sunshine

It's been such a lovely day that I have taken myself outside to do gardening....Hmn believe that and I can guarantee that pigs do fly!! No I have been outside enjoying colouring some images with my promarkers. I have coloured up a few Tildas and am now having a lovely time making them up into cards. This one is on its way to my friend Nicky, so hope you don't see it here first hun. x

Fresh challenge on LGS group

Woo hoo! It's a new day and with it comes a new challenge over on the LGS group. This week the very talented Lauren set us the challenge with the twist of "Spring gardens". This time my promarkers have been all rested up and I got out my paint brush and much neglected H20s. I think this medium suits these stamped images form Crafter's Companion. I cut out and stamped all the little pieces individually before making up the picture. Oh and look my sewing machine seesm to be working fine so I'm a very happy bunny!

Willow sketchie challenge.

This week on the willow sketchie challenge we all used this new download from Willow designs. Remember to take part in the sketch challenge at willow sketch challenge you can use any stash you have although we always love to see Willow designs used.

Last one of the day!

After having some difficulties with my sewing machine and of course it is entirely the machine's fault and nothing to do with the operator using the wrong pressure setting for card, dear me no!! I had enormous fun with this Lili of the valley image and I used up some of the bits of paper that I had left over from other projects. Doesn't that feel good when you use things up??!! Makes more room for new stuff doesn't it!!

Camera batteries had died on me so I have scanned this one but I think it has come out ok!

Lothian Crafts challenge.

Fancy winning a £15.00 voucher to spend at lothian crafts then all you have to do is take a lookie at their blog and make a card following their sketch. Here's my entry using Popcorn products that I purchased from their shop. There are some fab bargains to be had at the moment, so do take a look!.

Tilda's sunflower

Here's a card I made yesterday using Tilda holding her sunflower. I think she's so pretty and I love her. xx

Birthday card for my Dad.

It's my Dad's birthday in 4 days time so here's a card I have made especially for him. I have used the Woodware wine buff stamp collection. I had fun playing around with these stamps and wanted to use them all!! In the end I chose these few and I love the colours I have chosen. I think these stamp collections are great and I don't use them as much as I should do!

Sugar bowl challenge.

Over on the Sugar bowl challenge blog, a blog I have only recently found their challenge is to choose a sketch from their listed ones and include a Sugar Nellie stamp. the hardest part was choosing which Sketch to use and which stamp to use as I love them all but I only have a few to play with. Here's hoping that I win some!! lol!! In the end I chose to use the very first challenge sketch, that way I can work through them all!!

New Willow sketchie challenge.

As blogger has been playing up I have been unable to upload my willow sketchie which is a real pain! This week we played with Grace download and Heidi gave us a fab sketch and recipe to play with.

This weeks LGS group challenge on Craftbubble.

I used Wild Rose studio stamp and papers, which are fab and great value for oney I have to say! hope you like it. I don't know about you but blogger has really been playing up this week! Grr..
