Simon's Exclusive Birthday Farm Animals :-)

Hi all :-) I am here with a quick and easy birthday card using the super cute Birthday Farm Animal Stamp and Die Set from Simon Says Stamp. These sets make cardmaking super easy ,, fussy cutting was never my strong point so the coordinating dies are perfect for me :-)


I followed this weeks sketch on the Splitcoast Stampers site. I masked a square and used a Tim Holtz stencil to create the spotty design. 


I quite like the balloon carrying the little piggy up into the sky ,,,, haha :-)

I finished the inside very simply but I think it still makes it a bit more special eh :-)

Building a Snowman :-)

Hi all :-) It's cracking thre flags here it's so hot so what better time to think 'Christmas' !! :-)

Tuesday = Papertake Weekly and the theme this week is ,,, 

IT'S A JOLLY HOLIDAY 

I have been a bit busy with visitors this past week or so so I took the easy way out and used a pre coloured printed panel from a Wild Rose Studio 'Annabelle and Antoine' set

This image is called 'Building a Snowman' and is available in a clear stamp too.


I die cut the panel and made a shaker card,,, love making these ,, so much fun :-) I must say, using the panel did make this so much quicker too and I love the colouring the artist did !! 


Thanks for looking :-)

Penny Black Red Tango ,,,, in Blue :-)

Hi all :-) I hope you're all looking forward to a weekend of fun things :-)
 I think the beach is beckoning ,, it's gorgeous weather and the sea looks so inviting, time to dig out me bikini I think ,,,, or not ,,, LOL  I think I need something a bit more substantial ,,,, :-)

Anyways, my lovely teamie Heather aka Heather's Haven has been chosen as the Featured Stamper over on the Splitcoast Stampers Site this week and I just HAD to join in the fun :-)


I needed a 'Thinking Of You' card and I thought this card made by Heather was a perfect one to CASE :-) 

I am loving my new watercolours, I do need more practice, Amy will be home from Italy in a few days and I am going to ask her to give me a few tips, the thousands we spent on art classes weren't completely wasted ,,, lol  


and I am being really good at finishing the insides ,,, this is really simple so I can write a message. 


and this is Heather's gorgeous card 


Thanks for looking :-)
