Favourite Five Cards 2013

Hi Everyone

 I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  Ours was eventful!  We lost electricity for a few days due to the storms but we were lucky in that we got it back for a few hours in the evening.  Some people didn't get it back for days and my heart goes out to all the poor people who were flooded. 

I shared my favourite five Christmas Cards of 2013 before Christmas, I am now back to share my Favourite Five Cards of 2013 and share in the fun with Debby.  Its great to look back on everyone's super creations!

Here are mine, in no particular order, with a link to the original post:

Thank you to everyone who has been a follower and who leaves such wonderful comments for me. I do love receiving them.  I am sorry that I have not always found the time to get to you all over the last year, I hope to make this better in the new year.

Best wishes to all of you for a healthy and peaceful 2014.

Love and Hugs

Inspiration at Little Miss Muffet

Happy Boxing Day!

I hope you all had a lovely day yesterday.  

I have a card for you today which is my inspiration card for the Little Miss Muffet blog.  I have used one of my favourite images today.  Here is my card:

She is called Sonny Honeycloud - Butterflies and you can get her from the LMMS here.  The paper is from LOTV paper pad called Promises (Nitwit Collection). I got this at the NEC in November and its the first time I have used it.  So fresh and pretty after using the all the Christmas papers recently!  She is coloured with copics and I have used Fresh Foliage die from Memory Box, Heart Fence from La La Land and my small Tonic butterfly punch.  I have added some glamour dust, pearls and Mulberry Roses from the Hobby House.

I hope you like her!  There is some more wonderful inspiration on the main challenge blog

Also don't forget the Holiday Special going on in the store at the moment.  Click below for details:

 Well I will let you get back to your Boxing Day!  I am going to go out for a nice walk soon, as long as the weather is ok!

Favourite Five Christmas Projects

Good Evening Everyone

I hope you are all relaxed and enjoying Christmas Eve!  

It's been an interesting day so far!  All our electricity went off due to the storm yesterday so we have had no heating, phones, nothing!  Its been on again for a couple of hours so we are keeping our fingers crossed!

I thought I would join in again with Debby's Favourite Five Christmas Cards for 2013.  

I had a look back and realised I actually didn't make very many at all!  I actually had to send out shop bought ones to crafty friends this year which I really try not to do. I must find more time next year to do them!  

Anyway here are my favourite five with links to the original post:



Right, I am now getting on with some red wine and a nice Christmas movie!!

Have a wonderful evening and a very Happy Christmas!!

Colour Theme - Moving Along With The Times


Hi Again!

I am back now with my card for the new challenge over at Moving Along With The Times.  Our fabulous Hazel is our hostess and this week she has gone for a colour theme:

antiqued bouquet

I did panic a bit when I saw the colours but I had a look through my papers and found some that I thought fitted the theme well.  Here is my card:

I have used a LOTV topper and this one is called Romantic Times.  I added a touch of glamour dust for some sparkle and ran my Lil Inker Designs Stitched Square die on it. The paper is from First Edition and is called Boho Chic.  I have added some Mulberry Roses, pearls and book corner all from the Hobby House.  The leaves are my Magnolia Leaf & Swirl die.  

I hope you can join in this week.  Pop on over to the main challenge blog for all the details and some more inspiration from the Design Team.

OK, that's it from me today.  Have a great day and I will speak to you soon!

Love and Hugs

The Hobby House - Inspiration

Good Morning Everyone

Well we are half way through the week, and its my last week at work until 6 January.  I tell you, I cannot wait until Friday gets here!!  

I am here today with my inspiration piece using the gorgeous Hobby House products.  Remember that there is a Special Christmas Event running over on the Hobby House Challenge Blog.  Jill is giving everyone a chance of winning a fabulous prize of gorgeous Hobby House products!  You can enter as many times as you like but you must use a Hobby House Topper.  Also your project can't have been showcased on the Hobby House Inspiration Blog before, but it can be something previously made or something new.  

So onto my project, I have made a match box card.  Here it is:



I know there are a lot of photos but it was tricky to get one that showed it off well!  All products are from the Hobby House apart from the die cut match box kit which came from Which Craft UK.  Here are the list of the Hobby House products:

Fancy Buttons (for draw handles);

I had a lot of fun making this so I hope you like it!  Don't forget to join in with the Christmas Event and we look forward to seeing your entries!  

Take care and I will see you again tomorrow.

Love and Hugs

New Release at Little Miss Muffet

Good Morning Everyone

I hope you are all well!  Can you believe Christmas is only a couple of weeks away!  I'm still not feeling very Christmasy yet!  Hopefully that will change when I get my tree at the weekend!  

So I am here today for my Little Miss Muffet post for this week.  We have a new release over at the store and I have used the fabulous Dexter again!  

Here is my card:

 Isn't he cute!  He is called Dexter - Lantern and is available from the store.  I also used the stitched border to frame him.  These borders are so useful so do check them out as well.  I have matched him up with Echo Park - Tis the Season paper pack, I love this pack.  Then I just added some glamour dust and my La La Land Snowflake die.  Quite simple but I like it!

Don't forget our current challenge "You've Been Framed" is still running so you have time to create something and enter that.

Super Saturday at LMMS

Good Morning All

Happy Weekend!  I am still in France at the moment so this is a scheduled post for me.

Its Super Saturday at Little Miss Muffet and I have two cards for you today!  Firstly I have made a card using the Spotlight Image which is the gorgeous Eleanor May Hatter.  Here is my card:

I loved working with her!  She is teamed with Glitz Pretty in Pink paper pad.  I have added some flowers, fancy button, pearl string and pearls from the Hobby House and of course a touch of Glamour Dust!

My second card is using the $1 Digi.  This image is called Christmas Palm Tree.  Here is my card:

This is a fun card!  I coloured with copics and decided to leave it fairly simple.  The paper is Basic Grey 25th and Pine and I have used Die-namics Fishtail Flagstax.  

Both of these images are on special offer for a limited period so make sure you pop on over to the store as soon as possible!  Also pop on over to the main challenge blog for some gorgeous inspiration!
