Pixie Holly

Good evening,

Well it's been a busy get relaxed day today and I thought I'd better share this card with you before I nod off.  I had a lovely crafty afternoon with some of the ladies from my craft club and this evening we were invited to a BBQ, both were laid back but a lot of fun.  This was one of the cards I made this afternoon.


Materials used:
Digital Stamp - Pollycraft - Pixie Holly 
Promarkers
LOTV sentiment stamp
Papers - Do Crafts - Lucy Cromwell - At Christmas
Snowflake Punch - Hobbycraft
Cardstock, ribbon, buttons and twine from stash

It's been a while since I last coloured this digi - she's super cute and a joy to colour.

I can feel myself nodding off so good night & see you soon

Hugs,
Shona

Holly & Ivy Christmas Challenge #53

Hello,

I've just hopped on (and it's my first post in ages) to share my DT card for the Holly & Ivy Christmas Challenge.  We've had a bit of a break and I completely forgot to schedule or post my card until now!  I've had a busy few weeks with work and my daughter and I were at a three day music festival last week so it's been pretty full on.  I'm on holiday now for 10 days or so yippee!

Anyway back to my card and I've used one of my favourite LOTV stamps for my card.  As usual I've coloured it with Promarkers and teamed up the image with some ancient freebie papers.


Materials used:
LOTV Unmounted Rubber Stamp
LOTV Sentiment Stamp
Promarkers
Freebie Papers - Merry Little Christmas
Cardstock, ribbon, twine, buttons and ric-rac trim all from stash

That's all for now.  Have a great weekend.

Hugs,
Shona xx

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun with the Cutie Pies

Good afternoon,

I know, I often say it but I'm a bit late with this post!  It's been a mad week at work and my health has taken a bit of a dip at times again so I've been battling exhaustion.  Yesterday was almost a write off, I couldn't keep my eyes open!  I'm hoping to get a cortisone injection into my (frozen) shoulder in around a week so if that works I might be able to drop the tablet I'm taking at night to help me sleep through the pain which is contributing to the tiredness.  Fingers crossed it all works out.

Anyway back to my DT card.  Our theme this month at the Cutie Pie challenge is Girl's Just Wanna Have Fun and we are sponsored by Polka Doodles who are a new sponsor to us and have a fantastic prize lined up for our lucky winner!  The DT are very excited to work with Polka Doodles as they have loads of gorgeous and super cute images to choose from!  As soon as I saw this image Big Cheer - Sparkle Unicorn I knew it would be perfect.  My daughter is a cheerleader and although she's grown out of the unicorn phase I know this image will be popular with her younger friends.


Materials Used:
Digi Stamp - Polka Doodles Big Cheer Sparkle Unicorn
Promarkers
Sentiment Stamp - Personal Impressions
Patterned Paper - Dovecraft Over The Rainbow
Cardstock, ribbon, buttons & twine from stash



Thanks for dropping by.

Hugs,
Shona xx

Ribbons & Bows with the Cutie Pies

I'm back again with another (not quite so) late post to share my DT card for the Cutie Pie challenge.  Our theme this time is Ribbons & Bows and of course it must be cute!

Our sponsor this time around is Crafty Ribbons who have a fantastic prize for our lucky winner!


The DT were allowed to use an image of their own for this challenge so I opted for this cute Forever Friends image as I had a baby card to make.  As usual I've coloured with Promarkers.


Materials Used
Digi image - Forever Friends (CD)
Promarkers
Papers - Pebbles Inc Girl Squad
Sentiment stamp - Personal Impressions
Scalloped square nesting dies - Sizzix
Cardstock, ribbon, twine and buttons from stash

Thanks for stopping by.  That's all from me for this evening.

Hugs,
Shona xx



Holly & Ivy Christmas Challenge #51

Hello,

A bit of a late post from me to share my card for the current Holly & Ivy Christmas Challenge where as always we are running an anything Christmas goes challenge.  It's been a hectic few weeks of extra practice and weekends away with my daughter's dancing and cheerleading and I've been feeling a bit frazzled with it all.  Work is also beginning to get busier as it always does around this time of year so I'm a bit more tired than usual.   Just keeping on going as best I can though and trying to make some time to craft and blog.

Anyway, back to my card and this time I've used a fab digi stamp from Bugaboo, I was lucky enough to join their DT as a guest designer last month and it's made me love their designs even more than ever!  I love this cute and quirky looking penguin, especially it's eyes!


Materials used:
Digi Stamp - Bugaboo
Promarkers
Paper - Dovecraft Back to Basics Christmas (Modern)
Sentiment Stamp - LOTV
Cardstock, buttons & twine from stash

I'm popping back again with another post so see you soon.

Hugs,
Shona xx
