Monster Boo - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello again!

I'm back with my 2nd post for today, my DT card for DigiStamp Boutique, using a FAB new image called Monster Boo...

I just love this monster, he makes me smile.. fabulous isn't he?!

We've got Dex's parents evening tonight, but I'll be around later for a bit of a catch up with your blogs... hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Last minute penguins!

Hello... a flying visit from me!

I've been trying to join in with Squirrel's Great Penguin Challenge but just haven't quite managed it until now... a few hours before the challenge closes!  And I have to apologise to Squirrel, because I know she prefers hand-coloured images (so do I really), but grabbing a couple of pre-coloured ones was the only way I could squeeze my card in!

I'm also entering my card for this month's LOTV challenge, which is 'pretty papers'... I'm very last minute there too lol.

Will pop all the details on later, as I've more making to do before I pick the kids up from school... the papers and pre-coloured images are all LOTV though.

Back later with my DigiStamp Boutique DT card... have a lovely day :o)

Little Miss Muffet Challenges - make it mini

Hello everyone :o)

I haven't had chance to blog much over the last few days, as Morgan's birthday has kept us busy... I think he had fun anyway.

Here's my slightly late creation for our current challenge at Little Miss Muffet, where we'd like to see you 'make it mini'.  I've made a little gift card holder... I'm going to save this for my Grandma's birthday, which isn't until December - that's very organised for me!

The gift card pocket inside...

I cut the gift card holder on my Cameo, but can't seem to attach the Silhouette cut file in InLinkz... it's a Lori Whitlock file, ID#60412.

I'm entering this for the following challenges
Simon Says - anything goes
Papertake Weekly - oh how cute
Crafting with Dragonflies - gift card holder
Delightful - cute & cuddly

Off for a little commenting catch up... hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Hazel & Nutty - Sugar Nellie DT

Hello everyone :o)

I'm here with my Sugar Nellie DT card... the rest of the DT have been fairy obsessed this week, so I thought I'd join in and use one of my favourite stamps.

Just gorgeous isn't she?  I used the rubber version which is now retired, but she's still available as a digi... not for long though, so grab her soon if you need her!

I also used the latest MFT blueprints set... the green piece was cut out 4 times and layered up for a bit of dimension, then placed over the top of the pink piece.

We're off to get a couple of last minute bits for Morgan's birthday, which is tomorrow... we've got our pressies for him really, but my mum's poorly and hasn't been able to get to the shops, so we said we'd get what she wanted to buy him, and Dex wants a little something for him too.  No doubt we'll end up with a couple of extra bits from us too lol.

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

Get well mum...

Hello everyone :o)

Today's card is one I've made for an order...

I'm really happy with this one... you wouldn't believe how long I faffed with that sentiment (done in Word), trying to get it right... got there in the end though!  And the paper is made from two different Pink Petticoat digi papers (Dandelion Clocks & a dotty one)... a result of more faffing in Craft Artist, merging the two papers and using the transparency tool to fade the spotty paper into the dandelion one.  I was very impressed with myself, but will probably never manage to repeat it!

Ok... so I added the sentiment as a PNG file so you could grab it if you wanted it.  I've had to remove it though, as I tried printing it and it's blurry... no idea why.  Sorry, if I manage to sort it out I'll add it again!

Off for a little catch up with your blogs... hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Bert Christmas set - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello everyone :o)

I'm on a roll with these Christmas cards... maybe I'll actually be organised for once (probably not...)!  

For today's DigiStamp Boutique DT card, I've used a very cute new mouse called Bert, and a sentiment from the same set.

Isn't he fab?  I cut a circle aperture in the purple paper and popped the image behind it... super simple!

Hope you have a lovely evening :o)
