Don't you just love Pink Petticoat papers?

In honour of Katie's rise to the pink petticoat design team I have made this card using the pretty gingham papers that you can buy at pink petticoat.  They are absolutely fab for stitching on as well, as the lines really help you keep that stitching straight! Well done Katie, you so deserve that DT place. xx

Pretty in purple.

I thought that this fairy just sparkled for Christmas. xx

Totally Tilda and Just magnolia challenge.

I loved the sketch by DawnyP on the JustMagnolia challenge blog and I loved the idea of glitter and sparkle on the Totally Tilda challenge blog, so I have combined the two here! It's a gorgeous sketch and one that I would use again.  There is glitter and sparkle on my card all around my flowers and around my sentiment and I have added a border of glitter as well. I have also sparkled her hat and the scrolls.  It is musch mopre sparkly in real life though I promise you!  I was just a tad annoyed when I managed to smudge Tilda's eye though which does spoil it a bit.  Ho hum!

Craftbubble CMLI challenge.

This week our very own talented Karen set the theme on CMLI on Craftbubble and she also set us the challenge of " Santa". I really had to dig around  for this stamp! It's not well loved or used and I don't really do this kinda  Traditional Santa. Still it was nice to trip down memory lane and I even got the old watercolour pencils out for this one! I haven't used these for ages either!

Elzybells closure.

It's always sad when a stamp company closes and for me it's really sad to know that on 30th September Elzybells will close for good. On the plus side I have been buying up lots of the stamps that I have had my eye on for ages and at the weekend I had a lovely play with some of my new and old Elzybells.

Dottie's World Challenge.

This week on Dottie's world the challenge is The Great Outdoors. A big thanks to Karen at Charmed cards and crafts as well as I won the Dottie's World challenge whilst I was on holiday and she was kind enough to honour this when I got back, so I had ten pounds to spend in the shop and I bought a couple of the lovely Annie stamps with my winnings.
 I have kept this card nice and simple and let the image speak for itself.

Craftbubble CMLI challenges.

Here are a couple of cards that I did for the CMLI group challenges that happened whilst I was on holiday.

Thanks so much.

Thanks so much for all the blog awards I have been honored with whilst I was away.  I will post them on my blog later. You are all so kind. Thanks also to my friends on CMLI on Craftbubble for posting up the challenges whilst I was away. I will post up pics of those I missed and hopefully start to get back to normal as soon as possible.
