Flower Ladybug Love


There's a new Stella sketch today at Bugaboo and I decided to play along.

Here is the sketch



Here is my card



Although my card is a different shape I think you can still see it pretty well.
I have used one of my favourite Bugaboo images flowerladybuglove and coloured it with Copics. 
My papers are some that I picked up in the bargain rack at Whichcraft a few months ago and thought they would be perfect with this image.

Thank you for visiting and for any comments you are kind enough to leave.

I will be entering this card at

I used this lovely Hellebore image which I coloured with Polychromos pencils and matched with some My Minds Eye papers, American Crafts cardstock and some Stampin' Up ribbon. This is such an easy sketch I do hope you can play along with us.

Digistamp Boutique at SSW2


This is my card for our latest challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and this is Kathies sketch for us this time around.


I rotated the sketch because I wanted to have my ribbon coming down the side.

This challenge we are celebrating Digistamp Boutique. Sally-Ann was such a great supporter of our challenge blog and we all loved creating with her images.
I have used Jolly Christmas one of my favourite DSB Christmas images.
I created my background paper using distress oxides and some of the lovely Julie Hickeys new Christmas stamps, the red snowflakes are also from the stamp set.

We travelled down to Rugby last Saturday and despite travel being more difficult than we would have liked we had a lovely day and created 2 lovely cards with Julie too. Dragon Paper Craft is a lovely shop, I wish it was a bit nearer.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2

Here is my card for our latest challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.


I have been struggling to create recently, I had a bad bout of laryngitis last month which rather knocked me for 6 but hopefully normal (whatever that is) service can be resumed and this is as good a place to start. I am sorry if I have neglected commenting on some of my followers blogs recently too.

My image is from a Uniko stamp which I trimmed to size to fit the sketch and then matted onto one of the Reveal-it mats that Craftwork Cards did which I coloured to match mt image panel.

We do hope that you can play along with us this time, Kathie has created this fabulous sketch


 and you could win some lovely Craftwork Cards Stamps

Bugaboo Christmas in July

I really need to think about Christmas cards which isn't easy given the lovely summer we are having in my part of the UK, so I thought that I would play along with the Bugaboo Christmas in July week.

Here is my card for Day 1 -Theme Baby it's cold outside



I hope that my sweet Snowflake Snowman wishing for warmth fits the bill

Here is my card for Day 2 - A sketch 


Here is my card using Winter Wishes


I have combined my Bugaboo images with Craftwork Cards products.
