An Easter Bag

Hello again, welcome to my new followers delighted to have you here. The sun is shining again today which is always nice. I've made a few things today some of which I can't show until later. I can show this though.

I used Hoppy Easter from Tiddly Inks, cut him out on the Craft Robo, used my pens to colour him, used my Sakura pens for a change for the eggs to give them some shine. The border and the sentiment were freebies from Miss Kates Cuttables. These were cut on the Robo as well. I added some mats embossed one of them with my new folder, I added some ink as the colour wasn't deep enough. I used some ribbon which I stuck down with super sticky tape, only problem was the tape is wider than the ribbon...I used some gold glamour dust over the excess tape and actually quite like it. Some card Candi in the corner and done.

Some birthday cards

Hello again, the sun has been shining here always a good thing. Hope everyone has had a fabulous weekend.
I made these two this weekend.

 This is for my sister in laws partner, not sure what that makes him to me but we love him anyway. I used some Kraft card, some paper I've had for a long time and some gold pearl paper.

I cut the layers and the Happy Birthday with my dies. I used an scrap of very dark blue to back the Happy Birthday as it got a bit lost otherwise. One of those card that kind of makes itself, I can see a few more of these being made as well.


This one is from an Crafters Companion CD, Adorables Summer Collection, now it's been out for a while but I only got my copy a few days ago. I used some pencils I've had forever to add some more shading to it and left it at that. This one is for an uncle who lives close to the sea so I hope he likes it. 

I am entering these two in the following challenges:

Artistic Inspirations -Monochrome
Lexis Creations - Sentiment as the focus
Crafty Hands Challenge - Anything Goes
My Time To Craft - All at sea

Hello again, welcome to my new followers delighted to have you here. This time at Pile It On we are looking for your creations with tulle or mesh. We are sponsored by the wonderful Inky Impressions


The Inky Impressions Online Store features original digital and rubber stamps, as well as many of your favourite embellishments and papers. You can also play along with their Weekly Challenge.


I was lucky to be able to use Golfing Brandon for my card this time.

I cut him out on the Craft Robo, coloured him with my pens, both sets, I have been practising my shading and hope it's working but still work to be done I think. I used my newest die to create the chicken wire fence as my mesh cut from gold pearl card.

The background is using some Cordinations card and two of the folders that came free with a magazine. I can see these being used a fair bit as they are just so handy for backgrounds.

Mary had a little lamb

Hello again, welcome to my new followers delighted to have you here. Not a DT card this time, a while ago the lovely Sylvia Vet offered us the chance to win this beautiful digi stamp and I was one of the lucky winners. 


I used my pens to colour in the image after cutting it on the Craft Robo. I used some paper from an old Kanban pad, freebie paper from a magazine, embossed some and some from my stash so not sure where it's from. 

I coloured the flowers, added a Nancy bow with a dazzler ad some gems for a bit of bling. I've sent it to my sister and hope she likes it.
