If dogs could speak

Would you believe it, but I managed to make a card just for the sake of creating and not for a DT commitment.  And I must say that I really enjoyed it and must do more of it!  

I recently bought the Paper Smooches Dog Icons die set from Make The Day Special and lovely owner Tara threw in a sample of their new Peel and Stick Veneer.  I used these lovely items to make this thank you card...



I also used the Make The Day Special sketch in their current challenge which was perfect for these dies!  The papers are from an old Crate Paper pad and I used My Favorite Things alpha dies for the "woof" and popped them on foam pads for extra depth.  I can't remember which brand the speech bubble die is from but there are so many out there now!  Inside the card I will write "Woof is dog for thank you".

I'm off to make some dinner now but I'll be back tomorrow with my Doodlelicious Diva make.  Enjoy the rest of your evening!

Let's taco 'bout it!

I've said it before and I'll say it again - I just love EVERY stamp set in the SugarPea Designs Bean Stalk Collection!  And once again the latest to the collection won my heart over so I just had to use it again for another DT make...



Isn't he fab?  He's from the Let's Fiesta set and I just love the sentiments in this set for all sort of occasions - thank you's, birthdays, congratulations and more!  Take a closer look...


I hope you love him as much as I do!  I will be back tomorrow with my Doodlelicious Diva card - ta ta for now!


Yee haw cowgirl!

As promised, I'm back again with another Lili of the Valley sneak peek and today I'm showing this very fun Cowgirl...



Isn't she adorable?  I love her hat and cute outfit - I want one!  The sentiment is from the Handwritten Phrases set.  The new stamps will be launched in our shop today at the open day and on the website next Monday so not long before you can own your very own!

I'm off now to decorate a bedroom - not my favourite thing to do on a weekend but at least it's not blooming gardening!

Washi - where?!

This week's inspiration over at La-La Land Crafts is washi tape.  I don't actually like washi tape so I decided to cheat and just trim strips of paper for my card!



This is Paper Doll Marci Winter and I also used the Snowflake Banner die (I trimmed the snowflakes off to dot them around her), a Stitched Nested Circles die and the Stitched Scallops Border die.  The papers are by Echo Park.

Copics used:

Face: E000, E00, E21, R20
Hair: C03, C07, C09
Outfit: C01, C03, RV93, RV95, RV99, B21, B23, B26, BG10, BG, 45, BG49


I'm off to finish work for the week - and then a well deserved rest with a large glass of alcohol by 6pm methinks!  Have a lovely day yourselves!

Up to its neck in hot water

(Please scroll down for the Lili of the Valley blog hop
with the deets on how to win prizes!)


I'm a bit late with this card - life is not running as smoothly or calmly as I would like it to be!  So the new September Whimsie Doodle challenge started a couple of days ago with the theme of Autumn colours so here is my Doodlelicious Diva make for it...



Yellow and orange are definitely reminders of Autumn for me but so is blue as we often get blue, sunny skies in September.  These papers by Zoe Pearn are perfect for it and I also used a WRMK embossing folder.  This little lady is from the Miss Adventure Tea with Abby stamp set available from the A Jillian Vance Designs store.

Get more Autumnal inspiration by the rest of the gorgeous Doodlelicious Diva at the blog here.

I'm back tomorrow with a Lili of the Valley sneak peek so see you then!


Lili of the Valley blog hop time!

The Lili of the Valley design team are having a blog hop today to showcase 6 new stamps of sweet girlies!  As you all know, the LOTV stamps are always the sweetest but I do especially love this release because of the different outfits they are all wearing - they are so sweet!  Here is my make using Cheerleader...



Isn't she fun?  And love her hair bouncing up like that with those cute pom poms too!  I used papers from the Candles and Cake pad and the sentiment is from the Handwritten Phrases set.  Lastly, I sprinkled some sequins (my current favourite embellishment!) around her to make it pop.
So back to the hop!  Do the usual thing and hop from post to post, leaving a comment on each along the way.  We have two full sets of these girls to win so good luck to all of you joining in!  You should have arrived here from lovely Lou and you now need to hop off to sweet Mindy.  If you need to start from the beginning, start at the Ideas to Inspire blog.
The new stamps which will be launched in our shop this Saturday at the open day and on the website next Monday.
I'll be back tomorrow with another sneak peek so see you then!

Thankful for you

Here is my other DT card for the SugarPea Designs September release that I didn't manage to share last week.  This one is called Bountiful Blessings and here is my DT making using this sweet set...



I love this set!  She is so pretty and I love the straw poking out like that with her tilted head!  I used more My Minds Eye papers and  Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Border dies. The fishtail banner is by La-La Land Crafts Stitched Elements set.  The flower border is a pre-cut die by Doodlebug which I coloured with my Copics to match the papers.

I hope you love her as much I do!  I'm off now but I'll be back again soon - ttfn!
