Hello again my friends, so nice to see you again and lots of you have been popping by to say Hello – Thank yo so much for that!! I totally love it when you visit and leave a message! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!!!

So what do I have for you this time?   hmmmm well over at Love to Create (Link Here) we have fabulous challenge using (link here) and the delightful Flourish With a Bling (Link here). Now I chose a really soft wispy fairy image and was pleased to have the blingy green flourishes to finish my project off with. Here is my entry……

I went with very soft colours – I have been doing a lot of brights lately – which meant that the colour of the flourish really stands out!   I hope you like it!

Until next time remember to stamp your place in the world!!! xxx



It’s a bird, its a plane….Its A Box!!!!

Hello again  – how are you doing?   Did you have a lovely St Valentines Day?  I did thank you, I was fortunate enough to receive a lovely heart charm from MB to go on my Links bracelet I was given for Christmas. And a beautiful card……..

So this weekend is a New Challenge over at That Craft Place and the challenge this time is to make a box. So make a box I did! Here is my make….


I have used a variety of lovely flowers, papers and accessories (leaves, keys, pearls and ribbon) to embellish my box….and the keys act as handles to open the sliding doors….OH YES!!!!IMG_7470 IMG_7475 IMG_7474 IMG_7473

I was really pleased with how this turned out. I dusted the edges with my Tim Holtz Distress ink as well. Everything I have used to make this box is available from That Craft place (Link Here) so why not give Lisa, Lynn and Danny a call and they will help you chose the items you need for your box to join in with the challenge?  And then share it with us here at the blog  (Link Here) and here at the Facebook Natter and Chatter page (Link Here).  We love it when you share your makes with us ……

Until next time – remember to stamp your place in the world! xxx

Yes indeed that is what the Celebration AND the challenge is over at Love to Create (Link Here) this time – Birthdays and Celebrations.  Love to Create are Celebrating 2nd Birthday – WOOHOO!!!!!  Happy 2nd Birthday Love to Create!!!!

And for the start of the 2nd Birthday Celebrations I chose the Eva and Deacon image from Bugaboo Stamps (Link here) and teamed it with some rather delicious paper from Stampin’ Up!, a brilliant stamp and die cut sets, again from Stampin’ Up! and one of my all time favourite die cuts – the heart pennant from LaLa Land! The image is coloured with copics and I think it conveys HAPPY! which is what I really wanted for the Celebration challenge.

Until next time – remember to stamp your place in the world! xxxx

Love is in the Air…

Oh, yes, Love is definitely in the air and here is another post from me!!!  See how efficient I am? Well, no……………..not really. You know me too well!   This is me using the newly found ‘scheduler’…..so clever as I feel quite sure that when this goes out I will be happily sat in my bed enjoying a lovely cup of Sunday Morning tea!

Back to Love is in the Air – February is the time of love and I confess to not being the most romantic of people – something about being a little long in the tooth and all that although I am partial to the odd touch of romance……just a touch mind! So I always struggle with Valentines day, I get embarrassed with too much luuuurrrrvvvvvve!  But when I saw this image I knew it was the one I wanted to use and you see I couldnt resist a cheeky sentiment as well. Fortunately, MB knows how much he means to me and somewhat resembles the cute ted in this image.




The die cut frames are Spellbinders and together with the flowers, card stock and Copic pens I have used to colour the image, everything can be bought from That Craft Place! Yep – everything…(Link Here) The image I have used here is a Mo Manning one but did you know that Lisa Horton – owner of That Craft Place has now brought out a range of digi stamps herself? Why not check them out here at her Etsy online shop (Link Here) Ditzie Digi Designs and https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/DitzieDigiDesign…) and choose yourself a unique and fabulous digi image for your next project!

Until next time – remember to stamp your place in the world! xxx

Sparkle and Shine

Hello there!   Yes I am managing to keep up to date!  i am shocked too but I found this amazing tool which I didnt really understand before: ‘schedule post’ – now I know what to do with it, I should be able to keep up to date a bit better!!! Everyday is a learning day!

Ok – it is that time of the month again and that means – Cards Galore Encore!!!! YAY!!!! (Link hereIMG_7415

I adored colouring this and creating the background – I was so pleased with the vibrancy – the Challenge was to use Sparkle and Glitz – the image is from Scrappers Delights (Link here)and coloured with Copics,  the background is made using Lavinia Stamps (Link here) and very lightly coloured using Copics, the Sparkle is created with some Jones Tones and Glamour Dust.
