Nephew's first birthday.

My brother's little boy is going to be one next month and I can't believe how quickly he has grown into this little active boy who loves coming to see his auntie and sorting through her DVD collection! I am glad he has impeccable taste as he sorted out the classics ( costume dramas) and posted the rest under the cabinet! His little face lights up when he sees me and he gives me the most gorgeous little smile. You can't help but melt...anyway this doting auntie has made this little card for his birthday and bought him some books and some new dungarees and a top for the impending birthday. The stamps are from the cute companions range form Crafter's Companion.

Buggy 40 card!

My sister-in-law celebrates her 40th birthday in the same week as my bro, so I have been busy making her this buggy card. She is a hairdresser, so I think this card will suit her perfectly!

CMLI craftbubble challenge.

I set the challenge this morning over on the CMLI group on Craftbubble. My challenge was to be inspired by this poem and use blue and white.

Cute Christmas Poem

I made myself a snowball,
as perfect as can be

I thought I'd keep it as a pet,
and let it sleep with me

I made it some pajamas,
and a pillow for its head

then last night it ran away,
but first it wet the bed!!!

Fall challenge on Di's digi download blog.

I think I'm on a bit of a roll here with my crafting , all these cards, but hardly any Christmas ones! I'm going to be so behind!  I couldn't resist buying this little chap though from Di's digi downloads in order to enter this fortnight's challenge over at Di's digi challengeblog. I loved colouring him in and I used the dovecraft sugar and spice papers for the fall colours. The cute heart buttons I bought on Ebay and they really are delish in real life! The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon is from my stash. I have to say that I so totally adore Di's digis, they are so well drawn and the detail on this one is amazing. If you aren't a digi fan I see Di also sells some polymer stamps as well! Tempted?!!

Little female footie fan.

My offering today is for my Niece who plays football for the girl's county team. She gets mentioned quite frequently in the local newspaper and is doing really well. Her birthday is coming up very soon and these stamps are from the Magnolia winner takes  all collection. Papers are from nitwits  and colouring is of course prismas!

Lady luck!

Well what a day I have had in the luck stakes! I won Di's digi challenge with my pink card, then I won her blog candy, then I logged into my lottery account and found I'd won a tenner! So to celebrate I made this cute Edwin card with a lovely stamp I won on EBay from a lovely lady called Diane, who has lost loads of her stamps to me!! Poor lovely lady, I bet she's crying now as she's packaging up her little beauties!  Well Diane, if you're reading this hope you won't mind that I slapped your Edwin in an inky pad, coloured him in in my choice of coloured clothing and sewed some pretty papers ( freebies from cardmaking and papercraft) and stuck him on top! He didn't complain much and I think he likes his new adopted Mummy!

Santa Claus is coming to town!

Karen set the challenge this week over on the Craftbubble CMLI group. Our challenge this week was to make a card depicting a Christmas Carol/song. I have gone with Santa Claus is coming to town and raiding my ever growing collection of Magnolias I came across this little lovely. Hope you likey!

My card for a fellow Craftbubble friend.

I struggled to part with this card because being a Tilda I loved it, but fortunately it went to a very lovely person, so that made me feel better! This Tilda is bubbling Tilda. I think I should start another blog just for my Tilda addiction alone!! Har har!

Totally Tilda challenge.

Well I confess to owning quite a large Tilda collection which will be getting bigger thanks to a lovely lady called Diane who sold me a couple more to feed my addiction! Oops! So I just happened to swing by Susie's totally Tilda challenge blog and my oh my, those entries there are amazing and mine certainly doesn't come into that league, but nothing ventured, nothing gained! So this little cutie is going to be entered into the challenge at Totally Tilda because I need to give them something to smile at! I tried very hard to capture the light of the candle but it was harder than I thought and I need to go back to the colouring board methinks! Well 'Tis the season to be merry and I can certainly drink to that! Papers incidentally are Pink Petticoat printed on linen card! Pretty aren't they?!!

Last minute, That's me!

Well this week's Pollycraft challenge had a sketch to follow. Feeling in a "bearly there" kind of mood I have gone with this little chap. Papers are downloaded from Nitwits and no prizes for guessing my colouring medium choice, which must be boring you now! I have definitely quit promarkers for the forseeable future and it may be some time before I feel the love for them again! It's prismas all the way for me now! Just can't get enough of them! Did I say, I was in love with my prismas? Ok, ok! the promarker groups are at my door.....gotta go!

Di's digi downloads.

Well, here in all it's glory is a second fabulous digi from Di's digi downloads. Isn't this one a darlin? The challenge over at Di's  Digi challenge is ribbon and bows and so I'm going to enter this one there. My papers are Pink petticoat and the die cut is a cuttlebug one, which I had been after for years and finally managed to acquire on EBay this week, so I'm really happy about that :) Hope you like my little  card and if you are thinking about buying any of Di's digis, then do, I highly recommend them  because they are so sweet and beautifully drawn.

Di's digi downloads.

I was fortunate enough to win some downloads the other week for my entry into the House mouse challenges. I won three digis from Dis digi downloads. They are all so very sweet. I chose this one and two others. I thought this little fellow would be perfect for my brother's 40th birthday in December.

New Craftbubble challenge.

This week's Craftbubble challenge has been set by the ever lovely Lauren! This week she provided us with a fab sketch and a theme of warm and cosy. Here's my little effort, with a warm and cosy Tilda singing her heart out tokeep warm!
