At the moment I am so addicted to decorating anything.couldn't wait to open my Christmas presents just to see what kind of tin or package they came in for me to decorate! This little tin was washed with cream paint on the inside and whatever I had about I put inside. Also can't stop looking at Pinterest......... Love it

Since I last blogged I got approached by someone opening a shop and wants me to supply my cards and handmade gifts to her. Also I am on a design team for our local craft shop, so been very busy.
Been getting to grips with getting really messy with inks and stamps and must admit getting hooked.
Have made this card with Indigo Blu stamps. Added bit of lace which I distressed with Walnut Stain. Mounted onto a Kraft card. Hope you like.......

Used this little butterfly stamp in the class and thought before its put away and forgotten about I would make some cards. 2 different colours. Using paper and inking and stamping over it, then adding some embellishments was well chuffed with results...

When I looked at the challenge it was anything goes. Love this stamp with the mice and the toothpaste. Used yellow gingham paper behind the stamped image coloured with pro-markers. Martha Stewart Punch. 2 paper flowers and the swirl is the waste from a die cut Ribbon Rose.Hope you like this card and leave me a comment.

Hello to you all. This is my card for the LESS IS MORE challenge. Predominantly Purple. Got to admit purple is NOT my favourite colour. The more I tried to ignore this challenge the more I was drawn to it...... I used the Clarity Shoe and Flower stamp. Stamped them in Wisteria Wonder ink and used a damp paintbrush to draw the colour. Just added some shading with Rich Razzleberry ink. Finished with a purple bow and purple stickles. Mounted onto purple card. Let me know what you think.

This was one word. So using a Stampin'Up retired word, stamped Friendship. Added a red heart and 3 Green Leaves (sadly also a retired set) Added a small bow and 3 gems to finish off.
Cut a square of Limeade cardstock to mount my stamped images onto, then stuck onto a white card. Hope you like my card...
