We're going on a Safari!!!

Hi Everyone,

Golly me its the weekend and its the May Bank Holiday one too!!! Where has the start of 2017 gone???? 

Im here today as a Guest Designer over on the Gerda Steiner Blog.  I love playing with the stamps from there., You can get digital ones as well as the clear acrylic ones I have used today. The set I used is the  Go Wild  one. 
My top card is a Wee Lad out on a moonlit Safari trying to spot a Giraffe!!! Im thinking its behind him!!!! 
My second card is a cute wee heffalump one with a distress ink and watermarked background.

The stamps in the set are adorable and you can get cutting dies too. Although I hand cut mine which is a nightmare to do!!!

Lace Collection...

Hi Everyone,

Im here today with another sneeky peep at the Lace Collection CD from Creative Crafting World. The CD is launched tomorrow at 7pm and then another show at 9pm on Create and Craft TV. 

I printed out my papers on both sides to get the effect for this card.  I really enjoyed the paper folding. Its something I haven't really done for years so it was nice to play. 

I used 2 6 x 6 CArds for the easel card and added enamel dots as a wee embellishment. The rest of the creation is from the CD. 

Thanks for dropping by today to visit my wee bit of blogland.

Kit and Clowder...

 Hi Everyone,

Im here tonight with a card I've made using this months colouring in class from Kit and Clowder.  As soon as I saw this robin I knew I had to colour it and make up my folks card for Christmas coming!!! 
We all went to my fav place the local woods the other week and within about a metre of each other we saw 4 robins. Its really unusual to see them so close as they are quite territorial bird. 
 I love doing the classes as they really stretch your colouring skills to the max and you learn oodles from Alyce!! If you are in any doubt about doing them there is a class that's all about Markers that would be a great intro to the classes.
