Chin- chin!


Good morning, welcome to the weekend! My first card today is my DT make for this week's challenge at Sweet Stampin'. The theme is distressing/texture. I had fun playing with a brilliant set of stamps from Hobby Art, I LOVE this set! 
I stamped the main image twice, colouring one with copics. I cut the hat from the second image, shaped it with a ball tool and adhered on top of the first image using pinflair glue to add dimension, doesn't show too well in the photo but looks good IRL!. I stamped the moustache, glass and bottle a few times, coloured them and cut them out along with the 'chin chin' banner. The pocket watch is a die cut. The background dp is distressed and inked around the edges.
For more inspiration from my teamies and to join in with this weeks challenge, please go over to Sweet Stampin' Challenges, we'd love to have you join us this week.
Thanks for stopping by!

Party animal!

Good morning, it's my turn to host the challenge at Fab 'n' Funky this week , which means I get to choose the theme, this time it was an easy choice as we're lucky enough to be sponsored by the fabulous Dr Digi....I picked 'Make it funny'
I chose to use Happy Hour Horace I think he's brilliant , such a little ray of sunshine :), and I knew straight away what I was going to make...and believe me, that does not happen very often...my cards usually end up very different from the idea I had to start with! I kept the design very simple, using DP for the 'wallpaper' and table. Horace was coloured with copics, fussy cut (lovely and easy to cut out :) and popped up on foam pads. The sentiments were stamped and heat embossed. 
It would be great to have you play along at Fab 'n' Funky this week!
Thanks for stopping by!

New release day at Catch the Bug


Good morning, Bugaboo's new release digi, Beach Ruby,  is available now in the online store
Here she is enjoying a hot sunny day at the seaside. I coloured her with copics and fussy cut. She didn't want to take her heels off, so couldn't walk on the beach so I gave her a pier to walk on....
For more inspiration featuring this fun new digi hop on over to Catch the Bug Challenges to see what my lovely teamies have created.
Thanks for visiting
Have a great week

July Challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'



Hi, another quick make today! This one is for our July Challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'.
I really struggled to get a decent photo of this card but this is the best I could do, it was so bright and sunny outside that it bleached the colour out, and indoors was too dark... the colours are much deeper IRL. I do love the little Tomte though, so I stamped him again inside.

Do you realise that there are only 5 more CaSS challenges to go before the big day!? 
Scary thought!
 Thanks for visiting today.

Let's see some gingham at Fab N Funky Challenges


Good morning, it's time for our new challenge at Fab 'n' Funky, this week our lovely Pat has picked a great theme for you...she would like to see some gingham on your project. I wasn't going to join in this week (as it's Wimbledon :) but I couldn't resist this lovely theme. I made a very quick card, the layout is simple and I'd already coloured the beautiful Hannah Lynn digi! I haven't added a sentiment as I like to keep some cards for 'any occasion'.
The Fab 'n' Funky girls have made some beautiful cards this week...gingham is obviously popular with us :), hope you like it too, we'd love to have you play along!
Have a great day.
