Just popping in to share a photo of Gracie as she is 6 today bless her, she is so special to Craig and I and she has the most beautiful nature. Time sure flies, it feels like no time from we got her, and we actually got to hold her when she was only 6 days old .... awww .. she fitted in the palm of my hand, such a precious moment.  plus it was Valentine's day, so that would definitely have to be our most special Valentine's day ever! ♥

♥ CAS(E) this sketch - #157 ♥






Hi everyone, back today with a card for CAS(E) this sketch .... Twos cards in one week!! I'm doing well!! :)
This card is for my Father in laws birthday.  I do struggle with male cards, but think this turned pretty well.  All created with die cuts ... I have layered the "Dad" (L'il inkers) 5 times to give some dimension and I spritzed the word with my Tim Holtz air spritzer tool.  Again using Tim Holtz scribble circle die cut ... I shall never tire of this set .. Love them!!! and my MFT die-namics square dies also. A few enamel dots too!  


Have a fab weekend! ♥

♥ thanks ♥





Can you believe January is almost gone!!  I have actually got round to making a card (",)
All die cuts I have used "again", I just loooove die-cutting, it has to be my most enjoyable part of card making, I do adore stamping but get frustrated with not stamping straight, etc ... etc ..... so I have ordered a "MISTI" ... yaaaay!!  I can't wait.  I have ordered it from Oyster Stamps on pre-order so I wont have it until end of February.  I feel it will be well worth the money so I can get back to enjoying my stamping again.


Products used:

Tim Holtz scribble thinlits dies
L'il inkers thanks die
Paper Smooches mini hearts & arrow dies (love these)
dew drops
Really sparkly black glitter card stock 



Happy Wednesday!! ♥

♥ CAS-ology ~ simple ♥






Happy new year to all my readers, hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to another year of crafting :)
I got myself some new crafting goodies, one being the Tim Holtz scribble die set and have used it here on the background of my card .... loooove these dies! :)  The "hello" die is from a die-namics set which I cut out from a red glitter gift tag that was on one of my Christmas boxes :) ... plus ... the die cut banner is cut from a Ferrero Rocher chocolate box! ... LOL .. so a little bit of recycling going on here ;)  To embellish I added some little glass dewdrops.
I am entering my card into CAS-ology challenge ... Simple.

Thanks for stopping by
have a great evening ♥

♥ Addicted to CAS ~ JOY ♥







Just completed this card for the Addicted to CAS challenge ~ "JOY"    I have to admit I love how it turned out :)
I used pearl card for the base card, then another piece of pearl card which I embossed with Sizzix embossing folder rounding the corners.  The "JOY" die from Wplus9 is on 3d foam pads to give some dimension, so is the stitched circle.  I added wink of stella over the JOY die, don't know if photo is picking it up and a bunch of messy silver thread behind the sentiment.  Then of course no card is complete without some "enamel dots" or "bling".

thanks for stopping by!


♥ Paper Smooches challenge ♥




I made these cute little 3" x 3" pearl note cards for my mum as part of her Christmas gift.  I made 8 in total but I couldn't get a good photo of them all as I am not great with my camera (",)
The sentiment dies are from Paper Smooches and they are layered on a Memory box butterfly die which I first cut from card stock then another layer of vellum on top and some messy thread behind the butterfly.  The paper is from Echo Park cut using MFT stitched squares.
Paper Smooches are looking for a guest designer for January so I decided to join in :)

IF YOU CLICK ON THE PHOTO,  YOU WILL GET A CLEARER PICTURE, I TRIED TO MAKE IT BIGGER AND IT WENT OFF SCREEN .. "NOT" THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHER ON THE PLANET!! .. LOL  :)

Thanks for stopping by ♥

♥ CASology ~ TREE ♥




I'm busy ... LOL ... two posts in one day :)  just having fun with my card making and die cuts.
This card is for challenge over at CASology  - Tree is the cue word.
I made this circle shaped card using my MFT stitched circles cut from cream pearl card stock, and I die cut and embossed the trees from Hero Arts, also using the same pearl card.  I wrapped some silver thread around the middle tree and it is popped up on 3d foam dots. Then a few shimmer dots for the baubles. The little star on top is a wooden embellishment.  I popped a blue glitter banner in the background from Papertrey.


Have a lovely evening ♥
