Got Milk?

Afternoon lovelies!

I have a brilliant card to share with you today. I purchased the image from Bugaboo Digi Stamps, it's called Cow Humor - Got Milk?

It's for my nephew Tom. He works on a dairy farm and milks the cows most days, so I thought this would be cool to send to him as it's his birthday soon.

So, without further ado...



What you need...

Digi stamp: Cow Humor - Got Milk? - Bugaboo Digi Stamps
Digital card stock: white - Craftwork Cards
Card stock: blue, green, white
Dies: Clouds; Stitched; Stitched Frames - Paper Smooches
Promarkers: Baby Pink, Black, Cocktail Pink, Ice Grey 1, 5

What you do...

Download, re-size and print the digi stamp.
Colour in and cut out the cow. 
Die cut a stitched curve and a stitched frame onto green card. Die cut a stitched curve in blue card and mat both pieces onto a top fold A6 blank.
Die cut the sentiment with the stitched frame. Insert the 'inner' into the green aperture on the blank. 
Attach the cow with foam pads and add a couple of die cut clouds in white card.

Ta dah! Cool or what? It's so bright and cheery and it makes me smile. I do hope it will make you smile too. Thank you for dropping by! TTFN xx

Incy Wincy Designs Challenge - Easel Card

Good afternoon!

I do hope you are all well and rested after the weekend.

We have another fabulous challenge over at Incy Wincy this week - make an easel card.

Our fantastic sponsor is Dr Digi. The winner will get two digis as a prize (you lucky thing, you).


Now then, I am not in any way a fan of easel cards, in any shape or form; so this was indeed a very big challenge for me.

I chose a brilliant image called Grumpy Monkey and here is what I did with this 'cool dude'...



What you need...

Digi stamp: Grumpy Monkey - Dr Digi's House of Stamps
Digital card stock: white - Craftwork Cards
Card stock: black
Patterned paper: Swagger 6x6 Paper Pad - Fancy Pants Designs
Promarkers: Black, Ice grey 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
Pearls: black

What you do...

Re-size the image to suit. Add the 'Sup?', print out and colour.
Create a 13cm square easel card.
Trim and mat the image onto black card and attach to the blank.
Create a sentiment, mat onto black card and fix to the base of the card with foam tape.
Add some black pearls to finish.

I just love the look on this guys face. If he wasn't saying 'Sup?' I think it would be 'What u lookin' at?' As it's a perfect image to use for a male card, I stuck with monochromatic tones of blacks and greys.

Why not pop on over to Incy Wincy to enter the challenge and have a look at the scrummy inspiration my talented teamies have created?

Thank you for stopping by, ttfn xx

P.S. I'm still not a fan of easel cards :o(

Presents Thank You Card

Hello peeps!

Hope you are all having a fun weekend.

I'm back with another of those teeny little Christmas pressie thank you cards, and here is the little fella...


The stars, border and presents are rub-ons by Kaisercraft and the sentiment is a Pebbles Inc Duplicates.

Just to add a little splash of colour, I added a few red gems. Cute eh?

I have one more thank you card to show you, so I'll be back later with that one. Until then, thank you for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend :o) xx

Bauble Tree Thanks

Good aft'noon my lovelies!

Wow! We had some wind last night (no, not Simon & I). It was horrible. All I kept thinking about was my poor chickens!

Well today is bright and sunny and the chickens are fine and happily strutting around the garden. They are starting to lay again now that their annual moult has finished - whoopee!

As promised, here is another little Christmas pressie thank you card. 


This time I used die cuts from the My Mind's Eye Colorful Christmas Collection. This has got to be one of my favourite Christmas collections ever! I love these bright and cheery colours, the last couple of years manufacturers seem to have toned down the colours :o( 

Bring the bright ones back I say!! :o))

The sentiment is one of the Pebbles Inc Duplicates and I added a few gems to finish.

There you go, another quick and simple thank you card using up stuff from my stash. I still have a couple more to show you, so I'll be later with those. Until then ttfn & thanks for dropping in.

Holly Thank You Card

Good afternoon all!

I'm back with another little thank you card. I sent this one to my Nan to thank her for our Christmas pressies.

Again, as with the Rudolph card, it's a little A7 (7.5cm x 10.5cm) and I used some stickers by We R Memory Keepers that I've had in my stash for years.


The stickers are lovely as they are embossed giving a bit more dimension. The WRMK collection was called Merry & Bright and had lovely pink, red, lime and navy tones. 

I stamped the sentiment in Night Sky by VersaMagic and the 'thanks' came from the Many Thanks set by Paper Smooches. A few gems were added to add that bit of sparkle.

I hope you like my little card and will be back soon with another one. Thank you for popping in! :o)

Incy Wincy Designs Challenge - Colour Palette

Heevnin' peeps!

We have another fabulous challenge for you over at Incy Wincy this week, it's a colour challenge. We are delighted to have a new sponsor... Aurella Art!


There is a prize of 3 digis for the lucky winner!

Here is the lovely palette for colour inspiration...

Color Field - Design Seeds®
...and my take on it using Fairy Witch-Rowenia.



The colours look a tad more vibrant in the photo, they are more subdued in the real world! Isn't it gorgeous? The little dragon sold me on this one - so, so cute. He reminds me a bit of Spyro the Dragon (games that I have played many times).

What you need...

Digi stamp: Fairy Witch-Rowenia - Aurella Art (Nikki Burnette)
Digital card stock: white - Craftwork Cards
Card stock: amethyst
Promarkers: Almond, Marsh Green, Moss, Olive Green, Pink Carnation, Plum, Satin, Tropical Orchid, Warm Grey 1, 2 & 3
Ribbon: olive
Gems: green, pink, purple
Rub-on sentiment

What you do...

Re-size the image to suit. Print and colour.
Make a top fold blank 13cm x 15cm with amethyst card.
Trim and mat the image to the top of the blank.
Wrap and tie olive ribbon around the blank at the bottom of the image.
Add some gems and a sentiment to finish.

Ta da! There you have it. My Design Teamies have come up with some truly inspirational makes this week. Why not pop into Incy Wincy for a peep?

Thank you so much for stopping by. TTFN! xx
