Felt plushie stars

What do you think of my felt star plushies??? :) I couldn't sleep last night and was sitting sewing these at 2.00am {yeeeeesssss} I call them plush as I added a double layer and you cant see the stitching, they would make nice brooches I thought or just to add to card making or scrapbook layouts. Anyhow I have them in my etsy and im very pleased with them :)

My Paper World Sketch # 9

This card is for Nicola's latest sketch {My Paper world}. Its been ages since I last joined in one of Nicola's fab sketches.
The stamp is a cutie from Penny Black. the sentiment are doodlebug rub ons and the papers are all "use me up's". Giant polka dot brad from Poppicrafts and brad and photo turn from my stash.
Hope you all had a great weekend!! :) :)

S.W.A.K card

Here is another card using Dream street papers {as you may notice, I looooove these papers!!}
The heart is from LUXE color me paper range, which the range is in black/white, and you simply colour them in :) I added an adrienne Looman button to the heart and a Love elsie rub on to top left side of card.
I have added this to my etsy :) and for uk shoppers, the prices are in dollars, so just incase you thought the cards were £3.50-£4.00, they work out much cheaper in sterling :) thanks for all your kind wishes.

Hi there, at last I get a chance to join in with Arty girlz challenge. This weeks theme is ribbons, one of my favourite crafting materials.
I used scalloped velvet ribbon and made a ribbon tab from gingham ribbon. The flower is from a digi kit I bought last week {no not a freebie, lol} and the rub ons are from American Crafts, a heart shaped pearl embellisment to finish the card.
Im sure you have noticed {or not} I have opened myself a little Etsy shop {woooooohoooooo}, I have wanted to do this for such a long time, so decided to just go for it a couple of days ago.
I only have a few cards in it at moment, as it will take time to build up, but keep checking back as I will be adding new things :)
Have a fab weekend :)

Ps, Gotta pixel is the digi shop where I bought kit with this flower :) check it out, fab shop :)

Here is another Dottie card, im loving these super downloads!!! so much fun and I got inspiration from the lovely Louly for this card, I loved how she paper pieced the hammock in this lovely bright stripey paper from dream street papers, so I decided to give it a try myself and delighted with the results.

Cute card thursday challenge {things with wings}

At last I make a felt embellishment!!! {lol} its been sooooo long, but you need a bit of time to sit and make them, so I decided today I would sit and make this wise little fellow and im very pleased with him :)

The card is for last weeks cute card thursday, my first time playing along :)

The paper and rub ons are from American Crafts and I cut out the funky bright pink branch and clouds from Love Elsie heart embossed cardstock and inked round the edges. Im not too sure about these leaves I added :( but I spent so long making the card I didn't want to start all over again, personally I think nice lime green leaves would have looked much better, aaah well I can always make one again.

Hope you are enjoying your Sunday :)

Dotty about "Dottie" :)

Well here my first Dottie card, isn't she a cutie :) You can download the images from Charmed cards and crafts, if you click on Dottie blinkie it will directly take you to the link, these fabulous images where designed by the ever so talented Louly!!!!! :)

My colouring is not up to scratch as I have terrible cheap printing paper and need to get myself some decent paper!! and my photos are either too bright, too dark or not coming out the right colour {moan, moan, moan, lol}. Anyhow the spotty/heart paper is from dream street papers, I just discovered these papers as I seen Louly using them with her Dottie. The brad is from papermania and I scalloped pink memorybox paper using my ek success corner punch. I normally use my stampin up slit punch to scallop with, which gives a deeper scallop.
Hope you are having a great friday and I shall pick blog candy winner shortly :) :)
