Lili of the Valley DT

Morning, oh wow it feels good to be back. It has been soooooooooooo long since I made a card. I am a little rusty and need a bit of practice again but I really loved making this little project. Lili of the Valley challenge has also returned and we would love to see something NEW ..... interpret this in anyway you like.


I have chosen one of the brand new images which will be available in a couple of weeks from the LOTV website - OMG these new images are so cute, they really are getting better and better - I just don't know how Lisa and Laila keep doing it!! To also tie into the theme I have made my easel card into a calendar - all ready for a brand new year!


A closer look at the sweet image - the sentiment is also a new LOTV one which will be available at the same time. I hope you get chance to play along with us - right, off to work now ..... but inly for one day - woohoo!!

Oh Holy Night ...... wow, what an amazing song. There are lots of versions out there but wow, this gives me goosebumps everytime and makes me want to cry (I am a bit odd, lol) ..... hope you enjoy it....



I would love to hear your favourite Christmas song this week but you don't have to if you don't want to .... any song is fine. See you all next week xxxxxxx

Music Saves My Soul Saturday

Hi everyone ..... phew thank goodness for weekends! Another extremely busy and stressful week at work but hopefully it will start to settle a bit now we are getting used to the new IT system and the glitches are starting to be fixed. Still hard finding all the information quickly so my poor patients have had to be very patient with us all. My mum has also been in hospital but is improving now which is a relief to us all.



So onto this weeks tune .... I heard this yesterday and thought it would be perfect for sharing with you - I love feel good songs. I loved Back to the Future - such a brill film.



Thankyou all so much for playing along each week xxx

Hello there, oh it is good to be back again and at last we can all have a little sing and dance at the weekend again with Music Saves My Soul - woohoo


Thankyou so much for all the lovely messages about Music Saves My Soul since I have been missing in action - I am so amazed that you have missed me and the chance to share our tunes. I hope you have lots of fab tunes to share this week - I can't wait to hear them. I do need to get a few little candies out from before so I really apologise to those who are waiting - gonna get right on it!

So onto my tune ..... I love dancy type tunes and so I couldn't resist the brand tune 'The Time' by The Blackeyed Peas .... a funky twist on an old favourite.


I hope you enjoy my tune. If you want to join in just add your link to your post using the linky thing below and I would really love it if you could spread the word by adding my link to your sidebar with the fab logo above.

Just Magnolia - A sketch


We have a gorgeous sketch on Just Magnolia this week and luckily for me a card I made for the current Magnolia Inspiration Magazine is perfect for it (rotated of course) so I am delighted to be joining the rest of the DT after having last week off.



This is one of my most used Magnolia stamps -I just love it so much - it can be used for almost anything ... not just christmas.


I really love this colour combo too. Aqua is becoming one of my favourite colours these days - so pretty and delicate. Magnolia have lots of papers which have it in too so I am a happy girl.


....and how lush are these little berries - again from Magnolia! I love it when the DT parcels arrive. Make sure you visit the challenge blog to look at the rest of the DT's beautiful cards.

CES Challenge GDT with a little sprinkle of sugar!

Good morning, woop woop it is the weekend at last and I am so thrilled to be guest designer for the next few weeks for CES Challenge Blog. I was over the moon when my good buddy Emma asked me to take part with them. This week the theme is Forever Autumn and you can interpret this how you like. It was a great chance for me to play with some images that I haven't used in so long .... I had so much fun!


I have inked up this old Sugar Nellie stamp - god I love her. I really enjoyed colouring her and it made me realise that although I love being on DTs sometimes it is lovely just to chose and image that you want to, regardless of who makes it. So here is my guilty pleasure for this week!


My card also fits the following challenges.....

The Sugar Bowl - Sketch + Ribbons & Bows

I will be back later with Music Sabes My Soul Saturday, have a fab morning xxx

This month you can add beads to your project if you like (or if you are like me .... flat back pearls, lol ... oops)


We are sponsored again by the fabulous Heidi at Simon Says Stamp and she is kindly offering one lucky person a $30 spending spree. Heidi stocks lots of Magnolia products including stamps, papers, flowers and embellies - make sure you check them out here

Simon Says ... All White

Good morning, wow it is so dark here today and rain is on the way I think a crafting day is in order!!! This week on Simon Says Stamp we would love to see your card being all white apart from your image. Lots of the DT are using the fabulous images by Lili of the Valley, which I love to death!


I have coloured this beautiful image with my copics and added some fun flock to the fur trims. Loads of stickles to the ice for that extra sparkle. The background has been embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder and then I added extra sparkle with some spray glitter - fab IRL!!!!. It is ages since I used my dew drops but I love the way they look around the scalloped border. Pretty lace, a flower and some Magnolia gem crystals to finish!

Don't forget that you could win this fab voucher to spend online at Simon Says Stamp Superstore.


Have a wonderful day and don't forget to check out our other challenge on PaperCraft Planet too if you have time.

Oh dear, where is my head!!!! Was going through my blog and I have just realised I didn't post my card for last weeks Just Magnolia challenge - what a ninny!!! So here it is .......


We had a gorgeous sketch to follow. I am loving this colour combo ....... so subtle.


I have had these papers forever I think but was nice to dig them out again. You still have a couple of days to enter this weeks challenge so pop over to the blog and have a look at the rest of the cards by the DT - they are all fabulous! Off for a slob on the sofa, I feel completely shattered .... see you tomorrow xxx

Crafter's Companion Monthly Challenge - DT Card

Morning, November already - wow, how did that happen? A new month means a new challenge with Crafter's Companion so I hope you can all find a little time to join in. We have a fab sketch to follow with the theme ' One for the girls'. The rules changed recently which means you do not have to use an image by Crafter's Companion but if you do then your name will be entered twice for the draw!


I really adore this stamp called 'with sympathy' from the new SWALK release and the papers are from the new SWALK CD too. This card could be sent for many reasons but it seems to work for those cards when you want to let someone know you are thinking about them for whatever reason. 
Make sure you pop over to the Crafter's Companion website for all your new products and old favourites and don't forget to keep an eye on the News, Views & Inspirations blog too for lots of crafty ideas.
Have a fabulous Monday!
