Super, super cute!

Evening blogland,

Here I am with my nearly end of the month DT inspiration card for the All Dressed Up Facebook Group.  Only the three rules - you have to belong to the group, use an ADU image and follow the theme, with the theme being this month (February) 'Cuteness overload'. This is the card I made.

Supplies used:

Digital stamp:

All Dressed Up - Some bunny loves me
coloured with my Copics

un-branded stitched rectangle
Pretty Pink Posh - Eyelet Borders

Patterned Paper:
Dovecraft - Sugar and Spice

If you don't 'do' Facebook, don't worry as there's always the Blog and they have challenges too. 

And I believe that's it again folks! 

Other than to say that I'm not deliberately neglecting the blog - it's that I've gone back to work (only part-time!) and have been since the end of last year and I'm finding it hard to fit everything in.  Unfortunately that means it's my crafting that gives mostly. It's going to get worse from now on as well as I've just been asked to increase my hours due to how busy the office is.  

Hopefully see you again soon!

Dies anyone?

 Good morning blogland,

It's time again for a new challenge at Passion for Markers challenge and this week the theme is 'Dies and/or Punches'.  Our wonderful sponsor is Dr Digi's House of Stamps with a lovely prize on offer of two digis.

The DT were lucky enough to be allowed a digi, or two, to use and this is my card with the digi I chose:

Supplies used:

Digital stamp:
Dr  Digi's House of Stamps - Bob's Balloons
coloured with my Copics

The sentiment I created myself in Publisher

Un-branded stitched rectangle
My Favorite Things - Fishtail Foundations (for the banner)
Whimsy Stamps: Balloon Cluster 

Anything else:
Random piece of designer paper
Paper dots

That's about it really, if you get a chance pop on over to the challenge and put in an entry - you might even end up with me meandering over and saying 'hi' on you blog!  Poor you!!

See you soon,

Do you knit?

Good afternoon blogland,

Here I am with my New Release inspiration card for All Dressed Up Digital Stamps.  Yesterday was my turn, as part of the Facebook girls, to show off the first part of February's new digi stamps release yesterday and what a lovely lot of inspiration it was!

If you'd like to see all the Facebooks girls cards just pop on over to the Group, get yourself joined up, and take a gander - I know you won't be disappointed.  Alternatively, if you're not a Facebook type of person, there is always the blog to take a look at which also has some great inspiration for these digis (and many others!).

In the meantime - here's my card:

Supplies used:

Digital stamp:
All Dressed Up - Love to Knit
coloured with my Copics

Rubber stamp:
Taylored Expressions - simple strips: Friendship

Taylored Expression - well rounded
Spellbinders - Grand Nestabilities: Grand Big Scalloped Circles
Creative Craft Products - Nestables: stitched and plain circle dies

BoBunny - Smoochable

Anything else:
flat backed pearls
small pearl hearts

And that's about it folks, hope everyone is doing well and the current snow snap we're having in the UK is only causing fun not chaos (it's falling as rain here in wet and damp Lincolnshire!) and see you soon,



As You Like It Challenge: Digi or Physical stamps (and why).  Oooh, difficult one - but I think digi pips real rubber at the post.  I love them both, but the versatility of digi just takes the edge for me - being able to re-size, flip, rotate and crop - it opens up a whole new world!
