Pawsitively Awesome


Hello, I am here today sharing my usual Sunday DigiStamp Boutique card. This one features the adorable Mac. I coloured with copics and the sentiment is from an MFT set called 'You Have my Heart'. 

Rightyho, I'm off out now to brave this horrible weather but there's  a baked potato with my name on it at the garden centre!

DigiStamp Boutique - design team card


Hello. I'm here a little later than usual - I had internet connection problems. All a bit of a mystery why but tech department (hubby) has fixed it. Although I think it was gonna come back on all by itself anyway!

So, the next big event in the cardmaking world is Mothers Day. The DigiStamp Boutique has just released three new floral sets, perfect for this occasion and all on special offer. I have used set three which you can find here. I used Copic pens to colour the images and the papers are 'bundle of joy' by Echo Park.

Three Amigos


Hello. I've been having a bit of a play with a new stamp set. It's called Three Amigos by Mama Elephant (great service from Make The Day Special). You get the three characters and loads of little words and sayings to stamp inside the cards they are holding.

I coloured the top card using Copic pens and the one below with watercolour pencils. I've not watercoloured for ages and I had forgotten how much I love doing it. So, you will be seeing more watercolouring from me over the next wee while (and I've got more new stamps to play with).

OK then, remember to put your name in the hat for my magazine giveaway and I'll be back on Sunday with my DigiStamp Boutique card.

Somebunny loves you


Hello. Since I got my planner I am much more organised. I was never really all that dis-organised and I suppose I got my planner as something to decorate and play with. But, it actually does work. I guess that it makes me more focussed and I don't dither as much! It has magically found me time, even although it uses time to fill it in! 

So, with my new found time I am entering challenges more regularly. Some old favourites that I fell away from and some new ones I have just discovered. 

This little card is for the 'In the Pink' challenge - love is in the air. I used my new 'somebunny' stamps and dies by My Favourite Things.
