Mother's Day


Good morning I hope you all have a good start to the weekend, just popping in to show a Mother's Day card I made.

The stamp is by penny black, the card along with the greeting was cut using my cameo. I hand stitched the blue topper and added some buttons and finished off with a tag poking through.




I hope you all have a lovely weekend and Mother's Day, I will pop by your lovely blogs over the next few days :)

simon says stamp glitter it

I used a penny black stamp and used my inktense pencils to color them in. I then added some stickles to the cupcake. The stitching I did by hand and added some ruffles to the other papers. I then added a bow and button with some twine. To finish the card off I added some handmade flowers and washi tape.


I will be visiting you all over the next few days to see your fab blogs, thank you so much for stopping by I hope you have a great day!

Me to you birthday


Hello crafty friends, I hope your all having a good afternoon.

I made this card for Mrs A's butterfly challenge which you can find here. This card has a lot of elements going on so here goes....

The graph paper is by cosmo cricket, which I hand stitched. The doily topper was die cut and hand stitched again, the bear is a topper I found while rooting round for some other bits. The butterflies were cut using my cameo machine along with some of the rolled flowers. The large flower is form hobbycraft. I then added some buttons to finish the card off.





Thank you so much for stopping by have a lovely evening :)

Hedgehog, banner and a butterfly card


Good afternoon crafty friends, I hope your all having a good week. The sun is out again today woohoo!

I made this card for the following challenges:
my craft spot monday challenge 128-cute critter
craftin desert divas-birthday

I used a penny black stamp and colored the hedgehog in with my inktense pencils. The rolled flowers and banner were cut using my cameo machine. The newspaper print is also from their store. I had to do some hand stitching it seems a while since I have stitched on my cards, but I have still not got that sewing machine out, I just think we are not going to be friends considering I have busted three needles now....whoops!


Thank you so much for stopping by, my daughter will be three tomorrow so I am baking her a cake and wrapping her presents :) I will stop by over the next few days to visit you and see your lovely creations.

Piggy birthday

Hello crafty friends I hope you are having a good start to the week. Did you all have a lovely weekend? It was lovely to have some sunny weather here in the UK.

I made this card all on my silhouette cameo except the stamping,sewing and buttons of course :) I love pigs so I thought I would use one on my card and the fatter they are the better they look so cute. I would really like to have one as a pet but my boyfriend says no, I know one day he will come home and I would have  rescued one so he can't really say no then :)

I have made this card for the following challenge:
craftin desert divas-birthdays challenge




Thank you so much for stopping by today I will be visiting you all over the next few days and looking at your fab blogs.

Monster bash


Hello friends how is your week going? I hope your all good. I've been crafting every night this week and my creativity was not the best so I thought I will try again (as you do) and ended up making 5 cards does that happen to anyone of you? Sometimes it's an endless fight where you just have to give up and try again the next day but I don't think I've had 4 days on the go where I'm sat thinking "oh gosh (okay not that word but it's to rude to write) I can't seem to make anything". It can be really frustrating but we all get their eventually :)

I love this hero arts die cut I saw some stamps a few years ago with the monsters but they are really hard to get hold of now, it's really strange how I'm getting addicted to monster stamps and dies so apologies if you see quite a few monster cards :)

I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:
craftin desert divas challenge-birthday
little scrap pieces
hero arts birthday challenge
totally gorjuss happy birthday

I used my cameo to cut the monster out, and the scallop border. The cute sun stamp is by paper smooches. The greetings, star and number 5 are also cut out using the cameo oohh I love that machine! 

Thank you so much for popping by I really appreciate you all, I'm off to bed soon but I will be visiting you throughout the day tomorrow and the weekend.

Have a nice evening and remember to check under the bed for any monsters lurking (okay now I sound 5 years old)  ha ha!

See you all soon

Appreciation card


Good morning lovelies I hope you are all having a nice weekend. I can't believe we are in March already! Spring will soon be on the way which will be lovely after all the rain we have had.

I have made this card for the paper smooches sparks challenge if you would like to join in you can find the challenge  over here.

I used the greeting stamp from the word salad stamp set and the bird is a free digi from the paper smooches store. I colored the bird in using my promarker pens and I added a button along with some washi tape, and some paper strips.

I really love the greeting. I think its really nice to let someone you know and care about that they are appreciated. It will put a smile on their face :)


Thank you so much for stopping by today I hope you have a great day!
