Owl Folk

I was very lucky the other week and won not one but two Docrafts Creativity prizes. One was this fab Owl Folk Die Cut and Paper kit !!  the sweet pot didn't come with it, but my brother bought it home from work as he knew I could do something with it and I did......

I turned it into this.......


  A gift tin for Jess !! 

It was Scrap Club today at AMOM and Jess comes with her mum and Nan so I left it on her work space. She couldn't wait to open her "just because" surprise tin with loads of bits and pieces in !!

It gave me so much pleasure to see how happy she was....

12 tags of 2015

I really will be late for my own funeral.......but it will make everyone smile !!  Just got in by the skin of my teeth with my take on Tim`s tag...

This one was hard to photo because of the light catching the acetate butterfly wings...

Loved how my colours turned out as I didn't have any really bright ones. My first  card swipe through them came out very dark, but the second piece of card which is the one I've used is just right. The last swipe is very pale. I'm going to make two cards with the ones I haven't used.

Here's Tim's tag for our inspiration


I adore Tim's tag because of the bright colours which is really me !!   Me thinks I will have too invest in some more alcohol inks......

Hope all you guys had a fab weekend !!  Not sure about mine,  Saturday had a flat tyre on the way to Card Club ,  luckily I can change them myself !!   Then yesterday poor Hugo stood on a wasp and got stung on his paw pad,  he shook for ages but after I gave him a pain killer he slept for a while and was OK !!  Could see me rushing off to the vets again....

Anyhoo time for some more mousey fun at House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge which is Fall/Halloween.

I've done my usual of stamping and colouring in with Spectrum Noir pens. Then made a frame and embossed it to look like wood to go around. papers are by Basic Grey called "Herbs and Homey". Finished off with some orange spotty ribbon bows and my pumpkins !!

Happy Anniversary

Morning guys !!

Sorry I've been quiet this week, but been busy now making bits and pieces for a craft stall I'm having end of Nov. Sooo many things I want to make and can't decide which ones I going too.

Anyhoo got a simple card to show you this morning which I've made for my brothers wedding anniversary this week. It has a sort of early misty morning look about it I think.

Just blended three distress inks together to make the background, picked raspberry, squeezed lemonade and tumbles glass, ( love my bright colours as you know )  The stamps are by Artemio  called "Silhouette Foliage" and fab for making these kind of  scenes ( I do have trouble knowing when to stop...... )

my most favourite time of year !!

And it just happens to be this months stamp challenge theme at Little Claires !!

For my card I've used "Whisper a Wish" silhouette stamp and made my own background papers with distress inks !!  Doesn't show up in my photo, but I've stamped and embossed the cute heggie image, added the sentiment and butterfly which comes with the set and then a few dots for the butterflies trails.

The leaves I cut using s Sizzix die from white card and coloured with distress inks also and then crumbled them up and added some sparkle to the edges. Finished off with a few curls of green card and a ribbon bow made with two ribbons, bit of twine and a button !!
The FANTASTIC prize up for grabs is this little lot !!
