Seeing Red at MAWTT

Morning Everyone!

Happy Thursday, how is your week going?  Not long to the weekend!

We have another challenge over at Moving Along With The Times and this week our gorgeous Laurie is our hostess, the theme is:

"Seeing Red"

I don't need to explain this one right?!  

We are sponsored this week by "THE CRAFTY PAD".  Pop on over to see all the goodies that Debbie has in her store!


Here is my card:




I used one of the ticket sentiments from the Christmas Ticket Sentiments set from the Crafty Pad.  This is a great set to have and available in digi which is great!!  The image is a pre-coloured square from Wild Rose Studio, the paper pad is also from Wild Rose Studio called Annabelle's Christmas.  My gorgeous blogging buddie, and teamie, Sue bought me a voucher for my birthday and these were bought using that, so thank you so much Sue!  

I just added some glamour dust for sparkle and added some mulberry flowers and the lamp post is a die from Cheery Lynn.  

Pop on over to the main challenge blog to check out the rest of the girl's gorgeous work and we hope you will be able to join in this week!

That's about it from me, have a great day!

Love and Hugs

Autumn Colours at Elisabeth Bell's World

Hi Everyone

I hope you are all well and had a great weekend. Not sure what has happened with the weather - rain, rain and more rain at the moment!  

I am back with you today with a card for the new challenge at Elisabeth Bell's World.  This month we would like to see:

"Autumn Colours"

I decided to use "Picked Sweet" from the Little Cottage Cuties Collection by Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps:





This card came together quite quickly, which makes a change for me!  I have used MME papers called On the Bright Side which I thought were the perfect colour scheme.  I used my Cheery Lynn Mini Fanciful Flourish die again, I knew this die would be used a lot!  The ribbon and flowers were a birthday present from the gorgeous Laurie (who I am seeing soon, can't wait!!!!)  Then just added some glamour dust and mini butterflies using my Tonic punch.  

Pop on over to the main challenge blog to see the rest of the DT's gorgeous projects.  You have a month to join in and don't forget you need to use an Elisabeth Bell image to take part.  

That's it from me!  Speak soon

Love and Hugs

At last, its the weekend!  Yippee!  Hope you have all got something nice planned.  

Today is an exciting day over at the Digi Bells, we have a blog hop to celebrate the launch of a new Elisabeth Bell digi image!  The new image is called "Little Miss Mouse" and she is available now from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Gallery!

You should have arrived here from the fabulous Mette, if you have joined half way through then hop back to the Digi Bells blog to start there!  Here is my card:





Isn't she adorable!!  I love her.  Now I think my card is a little busy compared to what I normally do, do you think I have used to many different papers?!  The paper pack is MME Gnome Sweet Gnowe!  I just added the little fence which is from Whimsy Stamps, some flowers which came with my birthday present from my gorgeous friend Laurie!  And then I just added some punched butterflies.  She really was a joy to colour in!  

You now need to hop on over to our fabulous Julie.  Enjoy the hop, I am sure you will! 

The hop will end at 9am Arizona Time on Friday 28 September.  Two winners will be randomly chosen from the comments left on each DT blog and the Digi Bells blog!  Good luck!

Remember you must use a Sugar Nellie image rubber stamp or digital image and the winner will receive 4 Sugar Nellie rubber stamps from Funky Kits.  I hope you can join us this fortnight!

Good Morning Everyone

I hope your week is going well!  I am back this morning with a card for the new challenge over at Moving Along With the Times.  Our gorgeous Judith is the hostess this week and she has chosen:

"Girly, Girly - Prim & Proper"

So we are going posh this week!!  I had an image which I had coloured up a while ago which I thought fitted the bill so decided to make up a card.  Here it is:




I think she looks prim and proper in her posh frock don't you!?  She is of course from LOTV and is called Best Dress.  I have used papers from Bazzill Basics - Avalon and added a pearl swirl and some mulberry flowers from the Hobby House.  The ribbon is from Ladybug Crafts Ink and the sentiment is Whimsy stamps Friendship Tickets. Loads of glamour dust on her outfit to finish off!  

We are sponsored this week by the fabulous Nikki at Bunny Zoe's Crafts.  As you know she has some fabulous goodies in her store so please do go along and check it all out.  

OK, I think that's it from me for now.  Will be back shortly with my Sugar Bowl card.

Digi Bell DT - Li'l Lilian

Good Afternoon Everyone

I hope you are all well and having a great start to the week.

I had a lovely birthday weekend.  Thank you to everyone for all your wonderful birthday wishes and lovely gifts!  I have some birthday candy here if you would like to enter!

I was taken away to Oxford for the weekend to celebrate.  Stayed in a very cool hotel which was previously a prison, so very quirky!  Had a lovely meal on Saturday night.  Then a stroll around the colleges and a bit of shopping on Sunday before heading home!  

So onto today's business which is my inspiration for you using one of the gorgeous Elisabeth Bell digi images.  Today I have used Li'l Lilian!




I went to the Bluewater craft show with my mum the other week and bought some bits and bobs, including the scalloped shaped card which I have used here.  I also bought the mulberry flowers and the little heart pearl both of which are from the Hobby House.  The swirl is also new and is from Cheery Lynn and is called Mini Fanciful Flourish.  Li'l Lilian is coloured with copics and prisma pencils and is completely adorable!  The papers are quite fussy so I left the card fairly plain (which is my normal style anyway I guess!!)

Do pop over to the Digi Bells Inspiration blog to check out some more wonderful inspiration.  We are also back on Friday with a brand new image and a blog hop, so don't miss that!  

OK, that's it from me today.  I will be back on Thursday with another card for MAWTT and the Sugar Bowl!  See you then!

Love and Hugs

Its time for the LCI Blog Hop!!

Hi Everyone!

Well its an exciting day today for all the Ladybugs!!  New challenge, new images and a blog hop to celebrate!!  Grab a cuppa and a biscuit and settle down for some fun!

So we are celebrating the release of some brand new digi images which you can get now at the LCI store.  They are called Snowman Delight, there are 6 in the set and are £1.75 each.  

You should have arrived here from our gorgeous Susan, if you get lost along the way then head back to the challenge blog to start again.

Here is my make using "Snowballs for Sale Delight":




How sweet is this little guy!!  I wanted to create a little scene and found this paper from my stash which was perfect.  I edged top and bottom with my Martha Stewart punch and added some snowflakes using my new Cheery Lynn Designs die.  I coloured my image with copics and prisma pencils and added a MASSIVE amount of glamour dust and white flower soft!!  Probably too much!!  

So onto the rules.  If you want to take part in the hop then you need to grab the banner on my sidebar and pop it onto yours.  Make your way through the hop and leave comments on all the DT and GDT blogs and then leave a comment on the challenge blog telling us what your favourite image is.  The winner will win all 6 images and there will also be five winners who will win 1 image each.

We are also running our normal challenge this fortnight which you can still take part in without doing the hop (or you can do both if you want to!)  The challenge this week is a photo inspiration one:


Phew!  You have probably eaten half a dozen biscuits by now!!  All that's left is for me to tell you that you now need to hop on over to our fabulous Guest Designer Gemma!!  

There is one final point from me which is to say that this post is my last one as a member of the design team at LCI.  Its a very sad day for me and I thought long and hard about it I can tell you.  Kerry and her fabulous images are the reason why I started my blog in the first place and they will both hold a very special place in heart, along with all the gorgeous Ladybugs!  I will miss them all!  Thank you ladies!  

That really is it from me.  Have a great day.

Love and Hugs

Digi Bells DT Inspiration

Hi All,

Super quick post from me today. I am here to share some more inspiration for the Digi Bells using another gorgeous digi image from the super talented Elisabeth Bell. 

Today I am using Rachel, Little Angel.





Isn't she just gorgeous.  I have coloured her with Copics and Prisma pencils.  The gorgeous paper is again from Maja Designs Vintage Summer.  I have used my new Cheery Lynn Designs mini fanciful flourish die which I think will be very useful.  The flowers and pearl heart are from the Hobby House.  Then just some glamour dust to finish off!!

I hope you like her.  Please pop over to the Digi Bells blog for lots of inspiration.  Also pop along to the Elisabeth Bell's Digi Collection to purchase this and any of the other gorgeous designs.  

See you soon!

Love and Hugs

New Challenge at the Sugar Bowl


PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR MY MAWTT POST

Hi Sweeties!  
I am back again for my card for the new sketch challenge at the Sugar Bowl.   The optional extra this fortnight is:

"Shabby Chic"

and here is the sketch


This is what I did:




I love this little sweetie!  She is called Fashionista which unfortunately is out of stock at Funky Kits at the moment but do go over and check out the rest of the Simply Sassy range here. I have teamed her up yet again with papers from Maja Designs (I am LOVING this paper pad!).  I distressed the edges and ran over them with my Creamy Brown Color Box Chalk Pad.  She is coloured with copics and prisma pencils and then just added flowers and pearls.  Nothing fancy!  

I hope you can join us this week, remember you must use a Sugar Nellie image (but who wouldn't want to right?!) and you could win 4 Sugar Nellie images from Funky Kits.  

OK, that's it from me today.  I will see you over the weekend with some more inspiration from the Digi Bells!

Love and Hugs

Christmas Gifts at MAWTT

Good Morning All

Hope you are all well!  I have a couple of cards for you today.  The first one is for the brand new challenge at Moving Along With The Times.  Our Kim is our fabulous hostess this week and the theme is:

"Christmas Gifts"

We are sponsored this week by the gorgeous Anne at Digi My World and she very kindly gave us some images to use.  Here is my project:




I bought a load of plain gift bags a while ago with the intention of decorating them for friends but haven't done any!  So I thought I would give it a go.  The cute image is called "Little Elf" which you can get here.  I used the pre-coloured image (for speed!).  The papers are from MME Winter Wonderland and I just added a computer sentiment, some ribbon and a loopy bloom flower.  Its ok for my first attempt, although not sure how many I will be doing, there is so much space to fill which scares me a bit!!! 

Don't forget to go and check out the rest of the DT inspirational Christmas gifts!

Will be back shortly with my card for the Sugar Bowl.  

Take care
