Love You Mac - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello :o)

Sweet Stampin' - cute & cuddly

Hello everyone :o)

Our challenge at Sweet Stampin' this week is 'cute & cuddly', and we're sponsored by Marianne Design with a surprise prize for our lucky winner.

I've used these super cute DigiStamp Boutique penguins that have been sat on my desk waiting to be coloured... well I'd like to give them a cuddle, wouldn't you?

Items Used

I was supposed to be meeting up with my Crafter's Companion 'Inspirers' teamies today for a get together at the Newton Aycliffe store, but Dex is poorly so I couldn't go... and now I feel like I'm getting it too.  Don't you just love it when the kids go back to school and get every bug going?!

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Sweet Stampin' - weddings/ anniversary/ love

Happy Saturday :o)

It's not my week at Sweet Stampin' but I'm joining in anyway... our challenge is weddings/ anniversary/ love, and we're sponsored by Crafts and Me.

This might look a bit familiar, as I made a similar card not long ago... I just reversed the layout and used different papers.

Items Used
Stamp - Flower Heart - Wild Rose Studio
(stamped in Memento Ink in Espresso Truffle)
Colouring - Spectrum Noirs
Papers - Petal Fresh - LOTV (discontinued)
Sentiment stamp - Clearly Besotted
MFT dienamics - By the Numbers dies
Leafy die (not sure of the name) - Memory Box
Heart banner die - La La Land
Spray & Sparkle Iridescent - Crafter's Companion
Corner rounder punch
Pearls from my stash

We've been out for a meal today at Bella Italia with the boys and Pav's family, then went shopping for a few last 'back to school' bits and pieces... managed to pick up a few tops for myself too, which is very unusual (I hate clothes shopping!).  So I'm full and tired, and wet because it's pouring down!  We should really be walking the dog now, but he doesn't like the rain - he'll wait all day until he can't hold it any longer, and then mad dash into the garden for a quick wee... the rest of the time he sits staring sadly at the rain, and sadly at us, as if we're the ones ruining his day!

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)
