Bingo with the Cutie Pies

Hello,

Today (better late than never!) I'm sharing my DT card for the Cutie Pies.  This time around we have a bingo board for you and we'd love you to join in!  The DT were able to use an image of their own choice for this challenge so I went with this unidentified cutie which was given to me by a friend.  It's a rubber stamp but came to me without any packaging so I've no idea who to credit for it but I love it all the same!  If you have any idea what brand it might be please add a comment so I can give credit to the artist.


For my card I've selected bow, buttons and flowers from the bingo board below


and just to let you know this challenge is being sponsored by the Cuties ourselves and there's a fantastic prize up for grabs for our lucky winner

So on to my card..


Materials used:
Papers - Cart Us Country Rose
Image unknown
Promarkers
Sentiment stamp - Personal Impressions
Cardstock, buttons, ribbon & twine all from stash

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek at my work, it's much appreciated.

Hugs,
Shona xx

Spots and dots with the Cutie Pies!

Good morning,

It's been a strange few weeks since I published my last blog post.  I had a couple of weeks off work due to stress and feeling burnt out.  I just couldn't keep all the plates spinning and needed a bit of time to clear my head.  I'm feeling much better now and went back to work towards the end of last week.  I'm slowly learning that I need to pace myself and ask for help when I need it and also make some more time for myself (doctor's orders!) instead of always running around everyone else, but sometimes it's easier said than done!  We've also had some brilliant sunny weather and I really enjoyed spending time outdoors while I was off.  My husband has just finished transforming an area of our garden, which is a complete suntrap and previously undervalued and just used to store our wheelie bins, into a gorgeous seating area which I now retreat to as often as possible!

So, on to my DT card for the latest Cutie Pie challenge.  Our theme this month is 'Spots and Dots' and as always you must include a cute character on your project to be in the prize draw.  We have Crafty Sentiments sponsoring us and they have a fantastic prize for our lucky winner!  I've chosen their gorgeous 'couples' image for my own card.  For a change (and this is a first for me) I've used kraft card to colour on - a definite advantage of using pencils over markers!  I quite like how it's turned out, especially for a first attempt.

Hoppy Easter!

Good afternoon,

Hope you're all having a fantastic Easter.  I have had a lovely weekend and even better still I'm not back to work until Wednesday, I'm only working 2 and a half days this week and next.  Sadly the weather is really cold and miserable although we don't have any more snow (yet)!  Still it's nice to get some time off and not be rushing around for a change!

So I've hopped on to share the Easter card I made for our daughter.  I've had this LOTV stamp for a while but never got around to using it before now! 


Materials used:
LOTV Rubber Stamp
Promarkers
Docrafts Spring Chic papers
Crafty Impressions sentiment stamp
Cardstock, ribbon and gems from stash

Thanks for stopping by today.
