Thanks lil monster

Good afternoon crafty friends I hope your weekend is going well. We have had so much rain over the past few days roads are being closed off and some people are getting evacuated just up the road from me, I hope you all stay safe.

I made this card today as I need a girly thank you card but wanted a monster on there so this is what I came up with.

I am going to enter this into the:
 simon says stamp challenge-have a heart.
paper smooches sparks challenge-anything goes

I'm still trying to get blogger sorted but having no luck so I may even have to start a new blog :( but thank you all for hanging in there with me I just don't know why it wont publish my posts.

Thank you all so much for stopping by and have a great weekend and keep safe,

Many thanks

Hello lovelies I hope your week is going well. It has got really cold again booo! I hope your all keeping warm. Well that's January nearly done where did that month go?  It is actually scary how fast the days are going already. I'm hoping we will start to get sunnier days near spring, we have had so much rain here in the UK and my heart goes out to all the people who have lost their homes through the flooding. Its so sad. Lets hope things get better for everyone.

So I have just finished this card which I have made for a couple of challenges:

sassy studio designs
crafty little fairies-lavender and lace
sweet stampin-in stitches
the ribbon girl-anything goes

I hand stitched the card front, and added my stamped image along with buttons and flowers. I used my pro markers to colour her in and added a double ribbon bow with twine to finish the card off. I also used my polka-dot embossing folder to add some texture. 

Well I hope you all have a lovely week and I am still trying to sort blogger out but thank you all for hanging in there with me. 

Thanks for popping by,

Welcome dude

Hello friends, how is your week going? I hope you are all keeping well. So I have tried to figure out the problems with my blog and posting and no luck :( I am going to try and figure it out over the next few weeks so hopefully you will be able to see my blog when I publish something. I was actually really surprised that you cannot contact Google about the issues which is so frustrating and strange the only advice there is and that is on a forum. Whinging over ha ha!

Anyway onto my card, I made this for the simon says stamp wednesday challenge. The bunny is from cosmo cricket and the stamps are by paper smooches. I had to add some hand stitching of course :)

I hope you like it, I have made lots of other cards recently so I will post them up soon.

Thank you so much for popping by if you have any questions please ask me :)

I hope you all have a lovely week and a great weekend, see you soon.

Chubby owl twit twoooo :)

Hello crafty peeps how are you all? I hope your having a great start to the weekend. Well so much for me being 'more organized' this year, I think I have actually been less organized than I was before so my motto now is to go with flow...then I may actually start getting somewhere ha ha! Please tell me I'm not the only one who is like this...

Oh I have to ask as a few followers have said they cannot see my feed once I post, is anyone else having trouble? I have no idea why that is happening or how to sort it as I am not good with things like that but I will look into it.

I have made this card for cute card thursday challenge-warm it up and this owl die cut looked perfect as they always remind me of cold weather (not sure why ha ha).

I used my cameo machine to die cut this hero arts digital image and he is just so sweet. I also hand stitched the edge and added some rolled flowers, and a die cut tag. I really need to make more thank you cards.

I hope you all have a great weekend, and I hope its not too cold where you are, or raining! Thank you for taking the time to stop by and I will be back very soon.

A new home

Hello friends how are you all? I hope your new year is starting well. Sorry I have not blogged for a while it's been very busy the last few weeks. I have been making cards but just didn't have the time to blog but I'm back to normal now :)

I made this card last night using my new penny black stamps which are just super sweet! 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

penny black Saturday challenge

The backing paper is by echo park, and I made the rolled flowers and die cut the topper. After stamping and colouring I hand stitched around the edge and added a doily and banner. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today I hope you all have a lovely day and I will be back soon.

Get well soon :)

Good morning lovelies I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas. I can't believe its over with until next year.

I have made this card for the paper smooches challenge and I used the stamp set sentiment sampler and hot concoctions. I think the cup is super sweet.  

I started off with a white card base and I added some cosmo cricket paper which I hand stitched the outer edges. I added a doily die cut and a ripped paper bag to put behind the stamped image. After stamping the cup and greeting I added a heart, paper clip and washi tape. I finished off the card with some ribbon and threaded buttons.

Thank you for taking the time to visit me I hope you all have a very happy new year!
