New Anything Goes Challenge at Ally's Angels

 Hi everyone,

Wow, time has flown by once again and I can't believe it has been a month since I last posted, time is just getting way with me at the moment.

I hope you have all been enjoying the beautiful weather we have been having here in the U.K. this weekend.

 This evening I am sharing my card for the new Anything Goes challenge at Ally's Angels

I have coloured up one of the brand new Christmas stamps from LOTV, I just love this cute mouse. The name is very aptly named Christmouse Holly.

I stamped the mouse onto Artistico extra white watercolour paper and cut the bauble shape with one of the dies from the Crafters Companion watercolour christmas snow globe die set. The image has been coloured with distress reinkers.

For the snow I used some of the Crafters Companion faux snow.



DI list:

Mouse: Hickory Smoke, Black Soot, Worn Lipstick

Coat and Berries: Barn Door, Aged Mahogany

Holly: Forest Moss, Shabby Shutters


The poinsettia flower has been cut from a John Next Door set of dies. I added some twinklets to the leaves and some stamens to the centre. The fir cones, stamens and berries have had some white gesso painted on them.


Ally is offering the fabulous prize below to the lucky winner:


That's all from me today.

Thank you for popping in.

Take care.

New Challenge at Creative Inspirations

 Good morning everyone,

Well it continues to be a busy time here in our new home, but the good news is we are coming to the end of the decorating. We have decorated every room including having a new bathroom installed in three months except the kitchen and dining room, that is the next project, but it's a big one as we want to take down a low bearing wall. We are currently in talks with builders and kitchen designers so hopefully that should be under way in the next few months, I am dreading the mess though!

Back to to the task in hand, we have a new challenge for September and October beginning at Creative Inspirations and the theme is...

Fabulous Fall or Happy Halloween

I decided to made a shaker card for this challenge. I stamped up Tiny Townie Autumn Loves Autumn which is a Stampin Bella stamp and coloured her with distress reinkers.


DI list:

Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick

Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen

Top: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy

Leaves: Forest Moss, Shabby Shutters, Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door, Fired Brick

Toadstool: Barn Door, Fired Brick, Brushed Corduroy, Antique Linen


The papers are from The Hobby House.

All the embellishments are from my crafty stash.

New Anything Goes Challenge at Ally's Angels

 Hi everyone,

Well what has happened to the summer? We have had so much rain here in Devizes these past few weeks. I have been trying to paint the fence in the garden and I keep getting rained off, still it's not all bad as it means I can slope off to my lovely new craft room.

Today I am showcasing my card for the new challenge at Ally's Angels and as always it is 

Anything Goes

For this challenge I have made a criss cross card.  The image I have coloured up is an old Whimsy Wee stamp called Rosetta and painted her with distress reinkers.


Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Trousers: Bundled Sage
Top: Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy
Wings: Bundled Sage, Dried Marigold
Flowers: Dried Marigold, Bright Yellow (Zig Pen)
Leaves: Bundled Sage

The leaves and swirl have been die cut in peach card, dipped into a versmarak clear ink pad and I sprinkled on some shabby white frantage and heat set it with my heat gun.


The sentiment pulls out from the top of the card. I have added a couple of tabs to the top and threaded some ribbon finishing off with a couple of peach pearl gems.

The sentiment has been stamped with a stazon clear ink pad and I have added some gold embossing powder.

The stand has been cut from a joy crafts die in coordinating peach card.


The lucky winner will win this fantastic prize from Ally:

Thank you for popping in.
