Butterflies, flowers and a bike


Hello friends I'm really sorry for slacking on my blog but I have been so busy I hope your all ok and enjoying the beautiful autumn.

Just thought I would pop in with a few cards I made recently. I have been loving heat embossing recently so I added this to my cards and now I have a new obsession.


I made this anniversary card by adding a heat embossed background on vellum and also embossed the greeting.



This card I made I decided to do a background by heat embossing and I also watercoloured the flowers.



And the last card I watercoloured the  stamp and just did a small greeting on vellum.

I'm going to be visiting you all over the next few days and I can't wait to finally catch up!

Thanks for popping by I hope you have a great day

Thank you all for your lovely sweet comments on my last post you all made me smile.


I saw this monster and had to use her again so I did ha ha! I used a polka dot embossing folder and also some embossing paste to add more texture. 


The monster is by your next stamp and the die cut is lawn fawn.

Another monster.....


Hello friends I hope your all ok and keeping well, are you enjoying the sunshine? 

I just popped in to show a card I recently made. Are you getting bored yet with my monster addiction? I don't know why I have such an obsession with them maybe it's because they are cute and fun to colour :)

So I used a your next stamp monster on this one and the greetings are also by your next stamp. I added some die cuts and rolled paper flowers which were actually an old obsession but after rolling up hundreds of flowers and a few burnt fingers with the glue gun later I haven't used them on my cards for a while. Ha ha! 



Thank you for stopping by today I hope your all having a great weekend :)

See you soon

Turtle love


Hello lovelies I hope your having a great week, where is our summer gone? 

I thought I would just pop in with this card I made using janes doodles stamps. I love this turtle it's so sweet and can be used on many different cards which is always a bonus. 

I coloured him in with my spectrum noir pencils which are great but I think my box must of got dropped in the post as every time I sharpen them they shatter. 

I also added a few bits of grass that were die cut, just to add a bit of texture. 





Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting me I really appreciate it and I will be visiting you all over the next couple of days. 

I hope you have a lovely day

scooting by....


Hello lovelies I hope your all having a good start to the week. I haven't done a card challenge since pops was born so I thought I would join in. I used some paper smooches stamps for this card and colored in these cute animals with my markers, then I stitched around the edges which I also haven't done for a long time, as you know I am  rubbish with a sewing machine so I have to hand stitch my cards......... ha ha!!


I used the chubby chums stamp set along with party posse and spiffy scooters. If you want to have a go with this weeks challenge you can join in  HERE-paper smooches anything goes.



Thank you so much for scooting by (see what I did there lol) and I will catch up with you soon have a lovely day :)

Congratulations on being awesome


Hello friends I hope you are all having a nice weekend. As you can see I'm not getting bored of the monster stamps ha ha! I'm sure this strange obsession is going strong for about two years now actually that's a little fib I would say it's more like 4 years! 

I used some your next stamps (which are just so cute) to make this card. I also added some vellum to the background along with some die cuts to make the scene :) 

Seriously how cute is this little monster I just want to tickle her tummy ha ha! 


Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today I will be catching up with you all over the next few days.

I hope this card made you smile :)

happy turtle :)

Hello friends I hope you are all having a good start to the week. Its raining here again boooo!
I thought I would just stop by and catch up with you guys, I have no idea where last week went!

I made this card last night and I used a stamp from paper smooches I love this little turtle, and for a change I paper pieced her. The greeting stamp is from avery elle and I thought it would look sweet with the turtle. This was my first go at a shaker card, yep any trend that's going I tend to pick it up about a year later haha!


And here is a picture of Millie singing to Pops she loves being a big sister (most of the time) and they have such a sweet relationship.


Pops saying hi :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by I will be catching up with you over the next few days, I hope you have a lovely day!

See you soon

Sweet baby girl card


Hello lovelies how are you all? I hope you have had a good week. I thought I would just pop in with this baby card I made.

The stamp is by your next stamp which I coloured in using spectrum noir pencils, I also used the your next stamp journal die and greeting. 

I thought it needed something a bit different so I added some vellum in front of the patterned paper and I had to use a button :)


I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I will be stopping by your blogs over the weekend :)

Thank you so much for visiting me
