Hattie Minus Buddy

Here's a very CAS and cute card I made using one of the Hattie images from The Digistamp Boutique


This image is really Hattie and Buddy but I enlarged it and then cropped it down to just Hattie's head. 
One of the reasons I adore digis so much ..they are just so versatile!
She is coloured with Prismacolor pencils . 
I added a flower cut from the same paper with an xcut punch onto her head band,
 a little stamped sentiment and some pearls to finish.

While I'm here I thought I'd show you a piccie of our own Hattie (my great niece)
My niece told her she could choose her own outfit yesterday
here's the result lol 


apparently the hat compliments the PJ's perfectly!

I'm popping by to show you this little card I made using one of the new magnolia 
sweet crazy love collection available . My DT card for The Stamp Basket
If I'm honest my heart did sink a little when I knew that I was going to be getting magnolia stuff to work with but to I've surprised myself loads cos I've actually quite enjoyed making these :)



I've probably added more "stuff" to this card than I have on my last 10 cards put together lol

Ingredients:
Tilda with heart Balloon  coloured with prismacolor pencils

I made the little beaded wiry thingie me bob myself with some thin wire pinched from some wire edged ribbon and some odd beads I had. The flowers are from an xcut punch.

Sweet 16

Here's a sweet 16 card and matching box I was asked to make by a friend to give her daughter



She left it a bit late to ask me and as I haven't been feeling very well I wanted something quick and simple but still something a bit special so I opted for the concertina card.
I used the graphics from this free download HERE
The fonts I used are bookworm and eightfifteen
A couple of sparkly butterflies made from an xcut punch and some punched flowers again xcut
a couple of little gems from The Stamp Basket and voila

Thanks for stopping by today
Happy Crafting

Twins ..same but different

Here's a matching set of 1st Birthday cards for twin boys


I used a clipart Fairy digistamp from Here and paper pieced the number 1
Papers are also clip art fairy 
They are for one of my sisters friends to give
my brief was A5 clean simple and same but different

Not really been up to much else apart from making a few design team cards . My stomach has been niggling me again the last few days and today it has flared up bad. I'm sitting here doped up with a hot water bottle strapped to my tummy ...feeling rather sorry for myself :(

Hope you are all having a great weekend and thanks so much for stopping by

Here's a little card I made for a challenge over on a facebook group I belong to called ditzycraftymess
The challenge was to focus on the sentiment
Unfortunately I was to late to enter the challenge as the cat was sick on the landing when I was half way through the card..Not good on a cream carpet!!! lol

It's a free digi image ( will have to investigate where from so I'll be back)
I added a scalloped border some glamour dust and decoupaged up some of the image for a bit of dimension

Skateboarding Sammy

Hi peeps hows you? 
Thanks for all the lovely comments and get well wishes. My mum is doing fab thanks just waiting for her date for her bypass op now. I think she will be relieved to get it out of the way. She has many other problems and I can't believe how upbeat she is even though she can't hardly see and is in pain an awful lot of the time. But this seems to really getting to her and she is worrying about it a lot. Not sure why ,,maybe because we spent so much of our lives in the cardiac wards of various hospitals with my Dad. He had a heart transplant in 1989 but was very ill for almost 15 years before hand so we lived our lives around hospital for many years . I think it might be bringing it all back bless her! anyway enough dome and gloom and onto my card!

I am in need of replenishing my stocks and the boy cards are at an all time low so thought I would have a go with some of these Sammy Smith Images from The Digistamp Boutique

Ingredients: 
coloured with Prisma color pencils

Thanks fro stopping by today and happy crafting
