Card in a box!


Here I am with my first Kitty Bee Project of the year and it's my January spotlight project.

I've been spending a bit much time on pinterest recently rather than actually making stuff - oops!  But it's paid off though.  I've seen loads of these card in a box tutorials and thought I'd give it a go myself!

They are actually super easy, I had to improvise a bit as I don't own a full size score board but I managed. (I'll be getting my husband to rectify this on my birthday!)

I used the Kitty Bee image Hug Me Lady Bug - how cute!!

Other items used include Tattered Florals die, burlap stencil, distress ink, a Stampin' Up sentiment and some paper that has been lurking in my box for at least the last 3 years.

Hope you like it!  

Thanks for stopping by!

Unusual Colour Christmas!


I'm here with my challenge post for Kitty Bee Designs.  This is our last challenge before Christmas and our theme is unusual colour Christmas - so step away from those reds, gold and greens.

As you can see from my card below I went wild! Well not really wild I chose blue as my colour and used this seasons must have Bunny!

I love this paper too it's from My Minds Eye and is called Winter Wonderland - I got it cheap in the sales last year!!

I'm probably going to make a few cards like this - well until the glitter card runs out as they are lovely and easy to make and more importantly... quick!!   You can buy these little cuties from the Kitty Bee Shop.

I do hope you can pop over and join us for our challenge.

Thanks for looking!

Aloha Friday Challenge - Thanks!


The current challenge over at Kitty Bee Designs is "Thanks", now this technically isn't my challenge week, but the other team got to play with some A Day for Daisies images and I have got a bit of a soft spot for them so I joined in too!

Here's my card - I've used a lovely image called Curvy Birds - it's lovely.  The little birds had some glitter on them - they were super cute!

So why not pop along and join in with our challenge.  That's if you're not all too full of Turkey from Thanksgiving!

Thanks for looking!

Cute Little Bunny


I;m here with my Kitty Bee Spotlight post for November!

Every year I have one go to image for my Christmas cards.  One that will go with almost any paper and looks good whether you've spent ages colouring and shading or just getting it coloured as you've still got what feel like 100 cards left to be finished,

Last year it was a cute Kitty Bee Penguin, this year is the year of the totally cute bunny!  Just when you think things can't get any cuter - up pops another!

SQUEEAAL!! It's a Halloween Blog hop!

Happy Weekend!

I'm so excited - Kitty Bee Designs have launched a bunch of amazing new images and to celebrate we are having a blog hop.  If you're on the hop - hopefully you've joined me from Tracey's blog

As soon as I saw the images I knew which one I had to have and I know when you see it you're going to love it too.

I've got a cute little Ghost Giraffe, it just cracks me up.  I reminds me so much of my children when they try to play hide and seek, but only cover their faces and you can still see the rest of them!  This little guy has thrown a blanket over his head, covered himself in talc and hoped for the best!

I've teamed it up with some craft card and some new to me but old season Stampin' Up Papers!

You all know how a blog hop works by now - visit all the other fabulous blogs on the hop, go bankrupt deciding which stamps you want and win amazing prizes!

There will be 3 random winners who will each win a digi of their choice from the new release - hmmm I wonder if I can enter???

Every comment left on the blog hop gives you a chance to win, multiple comments on the same blog don't count but the more blogs you comment on, the better your chances are to win!  If you want to check out all of the new release images click here to be taken to the Etsy store.

The Hop ends Sunday 7th September at 11pm Hawaii time. (10pm UK time!) and the lucky winners will be posted on Tuesday 9th September.

And if that wasn't enough Ruth is offering a 15% off coupon to her Etsy store (click here) for Labor Day.  Code is 'Labor15' and runs from Friday 29th August through to 5th September, which can be used on on both clear stamps and digi stamps. (Thanks to Kel I now know all about Labor day as it's not something we have in the UK!)

Your next stop on the hop is: Taniaj - can't wait to see what she's made!!  The full hop line up is just below!

Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoy the rest of the hop and good luck!


Here's the Hop Order just in case:
