Charity images at saturated canary

Morning, I am back with another project today. The gorgeous Krista has created a special set of images for a very special cause.

All the details are over on the Saturated canary challenge blog.

The set of images will never ever be in the shop so this is the only chance you will have to get them

I have made a decorated frame with the gorgeous set of girls, I love the way this turned out.

Have a wonderful day

Anything goes at MDUC

Hi lovelies, I am a bit late with this post but I am still having problems with blogger. I have tried all the hints and tips that everyone suggested but it still deletes my pictures and my posts, or it wont let me write a post. The only way I can post is by using the blogsy app on my ipad, but unfortunately I havent figured out how to link stuff yet so please bare with me.

Ok info session over, I have a magnolia card to share, shock horror!! Lol The wonderful team at MDUC have decided that this will be our last challenge for the year so I decided to join in.

I have used an older tilda stamp for this card, as I have a soft spot for so many of them.

Here is my card, I hope you like it and join in with our Anything Goes challenge, and we will see you all fresh and raring to go in the new year.

Hello :-)

Hiya lovelies, just thought I would pop in and see how everyone is? I have been a bad blogger of late but things havent been the best health wise and I am getting very busy with my facebook business page.

I am still making cards just not as often as I used to, I miss my design teams but the break is doing me good and I hope I will be able to return to them in the new year.

My shabby chic diaries are doing very well and I have been making lots of tutu wreaths for sale, here is one of them

What do you think? I love them they are so girly :-)

Here is an example of a shabby chic diary, each one is unique and the covers are removable meaning you can change the diary every year

I will be back tomorrow with a card as its my turn for the inspiration post over on saturated Canary.

See you then

Love and hugs

Flowers at Mo's

Morning, well its Thursday again and its time for a new challenge over at Mo's. but before I get on to the details I have some news to share.

I have decided with a very heavy heart to have a break from my challenge design teams. So this will be my last post for Mo's.

I have had a rough year to be honest with personal and medical problems and I need a break. I am also stepping back from MDUC. It has been a very hard decision to make but although I feel sad I also feel a sense of relief. I have also witnessed a side of the blogging world this year that has shocked and saddened me, with people I thought I knew and others I thought were friends, and I hope by taking time out I will come back afreshed and not let that side of things get to me. I have not set a time limit for this break, I will know if and when I am ready to come back.

I wont be vanishing completely as I will still be popping in to share my saturated canary inspiration posts with you and I may have other projects to share also.

Ok, back to Mo's, this week the theme will run for two weeks to give the dt a much needed rest, and the theme is 'Flowers'

Here is my card,

Have a great week,

Morning lovelies, hope you are all well, my kids have been back a school just two weeks and thats all three of them ill already!!! Alex and Maya have fevers and have been up most of last night with stuffy noses, and generally feeling miserable. Meghan has a sore throat too. Hope this year isnt going to be a repeat of last year!

Lovely Lace at MDUC

Hi lovelies, how are you all? I have been busy with orders and working on some new ideas for christmas, so busy busy...

Well its time for a new challenge over at MDUC, and this week our theme is chosen by my lovely friend Sara, and she has chosen the theme Lovely Lace, so quite an easy one for me as I do love my lace!

This is a wedding card that I have made for a recent order, the brief was to add the couples names and wedding date and to also put their childrens names onto it if I can, and if I am totally honest I got me a bit worried! But I got there in the end!

So here is my card, enjoy the rest of your weekend

Inspiration team at Saturated canary

Hey everyone, how are you all? I am still loving these latest fairies! Lol

Today I have used "Ribbons Fairy" isnt she sweet?

I have made a little decorative frame this time, I bought a bunch of these frames a while ago and I love using them, they set of the images perfectly

I have used copics to colour her in, and as always went for lovely bright coloured hair, I seem to have a thing going on with SC images, they always make me want to colour them with pink, purple or blue hair lol, maybe its just me wanting to have the nerve to colour my hair a mad colour!

Have a good week lovelies

Inspiration photo at MDUC

Hi lovelies, I am a bit late with this project as I actually forgot it was my team's turn this week! I have rather a lot of things going on at the moment and I have had to drop a couple of DT's to ease the stress on me, which has been very sad for me but I still have a few left.
So anyway, here is my project for the new challenge over at MDUC, where the theme is a gorgeous inspiration photo picked by our gorgeous Kylie.
Here is the photo

I have taken the peach tones and the wood as my inspiration and made this little notebook

Before I go, I don't know if you know or not but I now have a Facebook page that I am getting going as a small business, I have my cards and crafts for sale, I also have cushions and other items, and am taking orders for card etc,
here is the link.

Something sweet at Mo's

Hi everyone, sorry I am late with this, blogger really isnt my best friend at the moment!

Its time for a new challenge over at Mo's and this weeks theme is "Something Sweet" which means just use any sweet image of Mo's. Now I had this card made for last weeks water everywhere challenge but I have had a bit of a problem with sd cards, sd card readers and computer problems so I was lucky that it still fitted this weeks theme. The image is the very sweet little April.

The prize is as always a gift certificate for Mo's shop, I hope you can join us this week

Sweater socks fairy

Hi lovelies, hope you are all well? I am a busy sewing bee again as I have another fair on Saturday. This time its a vintage fair and I am so excited about it. Only problem is I will need to tie myself to my seat to stop myself buying things, vintage is my weakness!

Todays card is my inspiration post over at Saturated Canary, have you seen the new fairies??? Oh My Word! They are gorgeous, I just couldnt decide which one to use, but in the end I went with the sweet sweater socks fairy and I have coloured her in my fav colour at the moment, lilacs.

Have a good week lovelies, its the last full week of the school holidays here, my three go back next Wednesday.

GDT at the Ribbon Girl

Hi lovelies, apologies for the lateness of this post but blogger is playing up for me and for some reason it wont show me the posts I have written and saved, and its been a pain uploading pictures. It seemed ok this morning then it started to act up again.
So anyways, I am delighted to share some great news with you, a couple of months back I had an email from Mary at the Ribbon Girl asking if I would like to GDT for August, it took all of 2 seconds to squeal and say 'Yes Please'!!!
So here I am with my card for the challenge which is 'Happy Birthday' 
I hope you like it and thanks again to Mary and Andrea for asking me.
