Warm Wishes - Stamping Bella!

Good Afternoon!

The weekend is almost here!!  Yippee!  I am feeling very pleased with myself as I have more or less finished by Christmas shopping now!  I don't think I have ever been this organised!  However, I am now starting to stress that I am not getting stressed about it all!! Does that make sense! :-)

Anyway, enough waffle.  I recently joined the Stamping Bella Sistahood on Facebook!  They have some fabulous inspiration using the gorgeous Stamping Bella images that I just had to get some images out to colour.  Thank you ladies!  Here is my card:




I am so going to start using these images more!!  I do love them but just never have time. Anyway this is Uptown Girl - Quinn in her Boots which you can get from Quixotic Paperie here.  I teamed her with Echo Park - Winter Wishes papers and added snowflakes using my Die-namics Let it Snowflake die.  Lots of glamour dust and pearls to finish off!  Oh and a snowflake charm from my stash.  

I hope you like her!  

Have a great evening and stay warm!

Love and Hugs

New Sketch Challenge at The Sugar Bowl

Hi one and all!!

Hope you are all well and staying warm and dry.  Isn't the weather awful, the poor people who are being flooded, I hope you are all staying safe and dry.

So, I am back today with a brand new sketch at The Sugar Bowl.  The optional extra this week is "A Winter's Tale" here is the sketch:


Here is my card:




I have used one of the fabulous new Christmas digi images and its called "Squirrel Delivery Service", which you can get here from Funky Kits!  I have used LOTV Frosty Christmas papers (I am sorry if you are getting bored with these!!)  I am loving the blue colours for Christmas this year, I find these so much easier to work with than the more traditional Christmas colours.  I have added my Frostyville Wreath from Memory Box and added some gems and glamour dust.  

Please pop on over to the main challenge blog to see all the gorgeous inspiration.  Don't forget you have two weeks to take part, so lots of time!

Have a great day and I will see you soon.

A Different Fold at Elisabeth Bell's World

Hi lovely crafters!

Hope you are having a great weekend.  Why do they go so quickly!! :-(  I braved the shops yesterday and went to Bluewater to do some more Christmas shopping.  I feel pretty organised actually!  Only a couple more to get and I am going to do those online!! 

So today I am here to share my project  for the new challenge at Elisabeth Bell's World.  Thank you for all the gorgeous creations you entered last month, pop over to the challenge blog to see if you were a winner!  

This month the challenge is:

"A Different Fold"

I bought some die cut crackers from Which Craft UK at the Harrogate show which I hadn't had a chance to use, so decided to use one for this challenge.  Here it is:




I really enjoyed making this and I am going to do a few more and use them to put little Christmas gifts in. The image is the lovely "Pepper with Gift" from Belles 'n Whistles.  I teamed her with paper from LOTV Classic Christmas paper pack (I am so glad I bought these Christmas packs, I am using them for most of my Christmas cards!)  I added some lovely holly ribbon from the ribbon box and a mulberry flower.  Some glamour dust to finish off! 

I hope you like my project!  Please head on over to the main challenge blog for some more inspiration from the super talented design team.  You have a month to enter and remember you must use an Elisabeth Bell image.  

OK, that's it from me!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

GDT at Paper Crafting Journey

Good Morning one and all!!

I hope you are all well and enjoying your week!  The weather has been pretty rubbish here in London, wish I was still on holiday!! 

I am Guest Designer over at Paper Crafting Journey this week thanks to the lovely Wendy who asked the Digi Bells DT if we wanted to join in!


We had to use an Elisabeth Bell image so how could I refuse!!  The challenge this fortnight is to case one of the DT's card.  Here is my project:





I have used the beautiful Letters to Santa which you can get from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Gallery.  I bought some pre-scored twisted easel cards from Every Crafts a Pound when I was up North in October.  It took me about 10 minutes to work out how to fold it even though it was already scored!!!  Anyway, I do like the effect and will do some more for Christmas.  

I have used papers again from LOTV - Frosty Christmas  The snowflake and metallic ribbon are some more new stash from the Harrogate show and the snowflake charm was from my stash.  Finished off with loads of glamour dust as usual!!  

I hope you can join in this fortnight.  Please pop on over to the challenge blog to see more inspiration and I hope you feel inspired to Case one of the cards!

Have a great day!

Frosty the Snowman!

Happy Weekend Everyone!

Have you got anything nice planned?  I guess I am going to have to start thinking about Christmas shopping soon!  I try to do as much as I can online as the shops are a nightmare!  

I have however started making some Christmas cards and here is another for you today using another Elisabeth Bell digi image.  This is called Frosty the Snowman!





This is a great image to colour in, I had a lot of fun.  I used my copics and polychromos for the image.  The papers are my new LOTV Frosty Christmas and Krafty Christmas paper packs (you will be seeing a lot of these over the next few weeks!)  I also used my new frosty border die which is my new favourite thing!! I then just added gems and glamour dust.  

You can see lots more inspiration on the Digi Bells blog using all the gorgeous Elisabeth Bell digi images!  And don't forget to join in the blog hop as well (see my post yesterday).  

Right, that's all from me today!  Have a great weekend.

You should have arrived from the gorgeous Lynda. If you are lost then head back to the Digi Bells blog and start there. 

Here is my card:





I am in Christmas card making mode at the moment so decided to go with a Christmas theme for this card.  The image can be used for any theme really.  The paper is from Wild  Rose Studio and the flower and trim I bought from Harrogate in October.  I just added some glamour dust and pearls to finish off.  

You now need to hop on over to the super talented Alethea to continue on the hop.  I hope you enjoy it!  I always love seeing how different each project is using the same image!  

The hop will end at 9am ArizonaTime on Friday 23 November.  The two winners will win this gorgeous image and will be randomly chosen from each of the DT blogs and the Digi Bells blog.   Good luck!

The Littlest Angel

Hi All

Well, I haven't disappeared off the face of the earth and I did manage to get back from my holiday!!  I have been busy catching up and trying to get back into my craft room so I can start blogging again!  I have managed to do some crafting this weekend so hopefully normal service can be resumed soon!  I would like to welcome my new followers while I have been away!

I had a fabulous holiday, although it does seem a very long time ago now!  

Anyway, I am here today for my post for the Digi Bells.  I tell you, it was so difficult to get this card done, I seemed to have forgotten how to colour and put cards together!!   Its not my best but the image was a joy to work with!  She is called the Littlest Angel and here she is:




Isn't she cute!  You can buy her here from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Gallery.  All the rest of the card are using all my new stash that I bought in Yorkshire when I was visiting the girlies before my  holiday.  The paper is from LOTV Frosty Christmas paper pack; the ribbon is from the ribbon box and the die is Frostyville border from Memory Box.  

I hope you are like her.  Please pop on over to the Digi Bells blog to see LOADS of gorgeous inspiration.  I will be back later in the week!  Promise!
