Sorry for being such a pin head!

There's a new SugarPea Designs challenge starting today and the theme is You're so Punny!  So here is my DT make using the super cool Spare Me set...

Another brilliant set from the Bean Stalk collection - my favourite collection!  I matched him up with Digital Design Essentials paper and loosely followed this week's SPDSS07 sketch (you've still got time to join in with this one too!).

I hope you can play along - you can use any stamp you like but if you use SugarPea Designs, we'll top your voucher up to $15!

Thanks for visiting and I'll be back tomorrow with my DT makes for the La-La Land Crafts new July release!

Enjoy your retirement

Hello everyone!  I hope you are all enjoying the lovely hot weather we are having in the UK!  Well, I know some of you are totally hating it, but I totally love it!  I think my parents made a big mistake for me, emigrating from Hong Kong - I was made for that place!  For those you hating it, well I hope you are finding some respite from it - like lots of cold baths or cold beers!

Anyhoo, just popping in to show you a retirement card I made using the fantastic Great Catch stamp set from the SugarPea Designs Bean Stalk collection... 

I can't tell you how much I love this little guy!  Although raccoons are not native to England, we definitely have these cute critters but they are rarely seen.  I matched him up with Echo Park papers and topped off simply with a MFT die cut button with some twine.

I'm off to finish my crisp cold beer!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I'll be back next week some time.  Toodle-oo!

Whew-eee, thank goodness it's Friday!  I think I've finally caught up at work so hopefully next week will be more manageable.  And isn't it hot?!  But I'm not complaining because Autumn will be here soon enough and I just hate the cold!

Inspiration week over at the La-La Land Crafts blog has the theme of pins and pearls - two embellishments I don't use much of!  But I do own some pearls so here is my DT make on it...

Promarkers used:
Skin: Almond, Satin, Putty, Coral,
Hair and Ducky: Buttercup, Primrose, Mustard, Gold
Bath: Ice Grey 1, Ice Grey 3, Buttercup, Primrose, Mustard, Gold
Bubbles: Pastel Blue
Towel and Hair bands: Sunkissed Pink, Cocktail Pink, Pastel Blue, China Blue

I really like how this turned out - this little lady is so sweet!  She is called Bath Time Marci and I also used the gorgeous Cherry Blossom Flower dies.  I used some pearls and little iridescent sequins and the papers are by Doodlebug.  I used my Quickutz polka dot embossing folder for the background.

You can see more pins and pearls inspiration over at the blog here.  I'll be back this weekend with my Lili of the Valley DT post so see you then!

A "framed" picture

I'm here today with another grown up card - well, for me anyway!  It's a thank you card for Steve's Godfather who is in his 80's so I used one of the gorgeous Lili of the Valley art pads...

I think the bow makes it a bit girly but it looked too plain without it!  This gorgeous image is from the English Charm art pad - love these beautiful pre-coloured images.  I used some paper from the Promises paper pad and sentiment from the Handwritten Phrases set.  I also used my Hero Arts woodgrain stamp on some kraft cardstock to create the "photo frame".

I hope you are enjoying my grown up cards - I'm enjoying making them although I still much prefer my cutesy cards!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I'll be back next week some time - ttfn!

A dream is a wish your heart makes

It's monochromatic time over at the La-La Land Crafts blog and this week there have been some gorgeous creations by the team.  But of course you wouldn't expect anything less, right?  ;)

So, here is my take on the theme...

I love the La-La Land Crafts dies and I've been dying to make a card with a bee and honeycomb theme.  I used the Honeycomb die, Build-a-Bee die and the Cherry Blossoms Flowers die.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful Day Sentiments set - these are all so lovely!

You can see more monochromatic inspiration over at the blog here.  I'll be back this weekend with my Lili of the Valley DT post so see you then!
