A very girly girly card

Hi everyone!  Hope your weekend is going swimmingly!  We are bracing ourselves in the UK for some really horrible weather tomorrow - baton down the hatches!

Ok, so I actually popped in to show you my Bellarific Babe card using the very sweet Angelina by Mo Manning...

I haven't made such a girly card for ages!  But I was asked to make a card for a girly girl so here you go!

Anyway, I gotta go now but see you tomorrow with my Lili of the Valley DT card - ttfn!

Wanna chat?

Hello!  Back again today for Bellarific Friday and this week the theme was "fall colours".  Here is my Bellarific Babe card...

This is Lulu's Morning Fix - I think we can all relate to this!  I matched her up with BasicGrey papers and some Echo Park letter stickers.

Next week's theme is this sketch...

Get your creations to Em by next Thursday and pop by to get all the deets and check out the rest of the Babes' creations!

It's day 2 of  the There She Goes Blog Hop Challenges to showcase more of the October new release!  Today we are showing you the new Give Thanks stamp set by our sweet illustrator Chaitali...

Here is my Trendsetter make using this beautiful set...

I love this set - so grown up compared to the cuties I usually design with!  I simply stamped the leaf stamp using Versamark Brilliance ink for a soft sheen and my Darice embossing folder for texture.

Hug in a mug

Blimey, I'm a bit late today - it's been a long week already at work and it's only Tuesday!  Still, managed to get my Doodlelicious Diva card done tonight and here it is...

I love this fella!  He's called Winter Cup and he's new in the store here along with some other new sweet images (plus there's a freebie if you haven't picked it up yet!).  I love colouring him in and pleased with how his hair turned out - shiny!

Okay, I am off now but I'll see you tomorrow!


There She Goes Happy Falls Blog Hop Challenge!

It's the start of  the There She Goes Blog Hop Challenges to show off all of the September new release!  Today we are showcasing a new set called Happy Falls by our designer turned illustrator Danielle Lounds!

Here is my Trendsetter make using this lovely set...

Such a sweet set!  I matched them up with My Minds Eye papers and embossed kraft cardstock with a Stampin' Up embossing folder (don't think you can buy it anymore).

I'll be back tomorrow with day two of the TSG new release and my CC Designs DT posts - ttfn!

Hi everyone, just popping in to show my Bellarific Babe card using the new Uptown Girl Chanel The Chef...

She is so much fun and I love the spoons in her apron - such a great touch!  I matched her up with My Minds Eye papers and Stampin' Up embossing folder.  The lettering is by Echo Park mounted on foam pads for a bit of depth.

The weather is so awful here in the UK - wet, grey, miserable!  I hate it!  Thank goodness I am having some fun planning our Australian trip in December!

Thanks for visiting and I'll be back soon with my Doodlicious Diva and There She Goes DT posts - toodle-oo for now!

Hey there little guy

I'm back again today with my Bellarific Friday DT post and this week we had a sketch to follow.  Here's my take on it...

I used the very sweet Arthur from the set of 2 Arthur and Annie.  I used a Paper Smooches sentiment and my Sizzix checked embossing folder.

Check out the rest of the DT's inspiration using this sketch over at the blog here.  Next week's Bellarific Friday theme is fall colours so don't forget to get your makes to Em by next Thursday!

Early Christmas card making!

It's There She Goes (Again!) week we take a look at some of our classics in the store and we have been showcasing some of our Christmas themed sets:

Today the Trendsetters are showing some new makes with these sets and here is my one using Snowy Days...

He is so much fun and I love the sentiment that comes with the set too!  I used K and Company papers and mounted the spotty paper onto foam pads for depth.

Check out more Trendsetter inspiration over at the blog here and there's still time to join in with the current challenge of be prepared for Christmas here.   I'll see you later with my Bellarific Friday Babe card - ttfn!

Did you hear the news?

What horrible weather we had today!  And we had to drive nearly 4 hours on the motorway on it - a bit scary!  Glad we are now snug and warm at home with a bottle of wine chilling as I *speak*!  I hope the weather is better where you are!

Anyhoo, here I am with my Bellarific Babe card...

I can't stop using this Uptown Girl!  This is classy Audrey Loves Her Makeup.  I matched her up with My Minds Eye papers, my Darice embossing folder and My Favorite Things skyline die.

I'm off to finish my weekend - see you soon!
