Sugar Nellie - Star Dust!

Good Morning Everyone

Well I am back from holiday but this still still a scheduled post just in case I forgot all about it!  I wouldn't want to forget this one as its my first card as part of the Sugar Nellie DT!  Karen asked me to join the team for a 3 month stint and I feel very honoured to be there! 

I have decided to use one of favourite Krista Smith images called Star Dust.  We all need a bit of Star Dust don't you think!  Pop on over to Funky Kits for lots more gorgeous Sugar Nellie products.  Here is my card:




I teamed her up with some papers from Authentique called Flourish.  I coloured her with copics and have added some glamour dust.  The leaves are made using my Doo Hickey Leaf and Swirl die.  The rest of the embellishments are from the Pink Mint Embellishment set from the Hobby House.

Please pop on over to the Sugar Nellie blog and you will see lots more gorgeous inspiration using Sugar Nellie images.

That's all from me today.  Have a great day!

Photo Inspiration at MAWTT

Good Morning!

I hope you are all well.  I haven't posted for a while, what with the nicer weather recently I haven been trying to get out and do more walking at the weekend which is usually my crafting time!  Also am still suffering with this bug and its not making me feel very creative!  

Anyway, I am happy to say that I am the hostess this week over at Moving Along With The Times and I have a photo inspiration for you this week:


You can interpret this anyway you would like, springtime, Easter, or just use the colours.  

I have to be honest, I don't like my card this week.  Nothing to do with the image or anything, just my layout and everything.  Anyway here it is:




I have used the lovely LOTV Art Pads and this one is from the Wild Flowers Set 3.  The paper is also from LOTV, I used the Heartfelt pad and the Shabby Shack pad.  I do like all the new paper pads that they are bringing out at the moment and am using them a lot.  I have used my La La Land filigree corner die and Lil'Inker Designs stitched rectangle.  The extra bits and bobs are all from the Hobby House.  

For some much better inspiration you need to pop on over to the main challenge blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have done!  I do hope you can join us this week!

OK, that's it from me for now.  Have a great day!

Love and Hugs

Hobby House Inspiration

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope you had a great weekend, what fantastic weather we had in the UK!  Just makes you feel so much better when the sun is shining!  

I am here this morning with a card using all the gorgeous products from the Hobby House.  You may have seen the new toppers on Create & Craft on the last show.  I have used one of them today.  



 
The image is from Elisabeth Bell and these toppers are called April Showers.  All of the embellishments are from the HH Embellishment Set called Peach and Green.  I can't tell you how much I love these embellishment sets.  There are four colourways now and you just have to buy them!  There is everyone you need to embellish your creations and they are such gorgeous quality!  Here are links to the products below:
 

The extra bits on the card are papers from LOTV - Antebellum pack and I used my SU tiny tags punch and stamp for the little tag.  

Please pop on over to the inspiration blog to see more gorgeous creations and also remember our current challenge is still running and the theme is "Buttons"

Have a great day!!
