Sea-ing you makes me smile

It's time a new Whimsie Doodles challenge and for April the theme is April Showers - so basically anything associated with water!  Here is my Doodlelicious Diva make using the new Seas The Day stamp set that you can buy from the Jillian Vance Designs shop...



Isn't he adorable?!  I love the font of the sentiment - whimsical yet cool!  I created the background using the bubble stamp in the set with Versamagic Sea Breeze ink and used my Nestability circle dies with metallic cardstock to create the porthole (I love doing this!).  And I got to use some of my zillions of brads up too!  Take a closer look at this fab set...



Check out the rest of the gorgeus Diva makes over at the blog here.  Have a lovely day and I'll see you tomorrow with our Lili of the Valley blog hop!

Easter sweeties!

I can't believe it's Easter next weekend!  I have to get my skates on and make a few more cards.  Luckily I had the gorgeous Lili of the Valley Easter Sweeties stamp to hand so I made this...




I love this stamp - it so so adorable!  I fussy cut out all of the duckies used a sentiment from the Simply Sophisticated set.  I also useMy Minds Eye Notable papers and CC Designs Cutter grass die.

Right, I'd better go and make some more cards!  :)

Is it Spring yet? I think so!

I'm here today with a card that I think accurately represents our UK Spring - that's to say it's still a little chilly in the shade!  I think newbie Skinny Jeans Abby accurately represents what I'm currently wearing - a scarf to keep that wind out!



I used My Minds Eye Notable papers with the cloud and sun die cuts using My Favorite Things dies.  The sentiment is from the Lili of the Valley Simply Sophisticated set.  I've placed a few daisies around too for some added interest.

Okay, I am off now to get ready for our meal out tonight at our favourite restaurant.  I've hardly eaten today so I can relax and enjoy what I want!  I hope you have a lovely evening planned to!

Guesting for La-La Lands Crafts!

As some of you know, I've stepped down from several design teams in recent months (down to 3 from 8 teams this time last year!).  This was mainly because I felt my style was becoming a bit stale and wanted to free up more time to explore my style more and also use other brands.  Well I'm very excited to share today that my lovely blog mate Sandie invited me to do a guest designer spot for La-La Land Crafts for the next two months.  I've never used this brand before and I must say that I've fallen in love with it!

Today is Inspiration Friday over at the La-La Land Crafts blog and this week's theme is Glitter Mania!  So here is my very first make for them using the stylish Jesalyn and the gorgeous Berry Flourish die.




This stamp is so perfect for one of my city friends - so classy!  And I love the Berry Flourish - so beautiful and I topped it off with some sweet paper flowers.

I don't normally use glitter much but there are lots on her jewellery, shoes and flowers.  I also used some iridescent sequins to add to the shimmer.

Copics used:

Skin ~ E000, E00, E21
Lips ~ RV52, RV55
Eyes ~ G20, G43, G46
Hair ~ E50, E51, E53
Dress ~ C9, C7, C5, C3



I must say though that I felt under a bit of performance pressure creating my first card for them - this is a seriously talented team and their colouring skills are amazing!  I know I'm going to learn a lot from this bunch of gals!

Okay, I'm off now but don't forget to check out the rest of the gorgeous DT inspiration over at the blog here while I decide who to give this beauty to!
