Flower Power xx

Morning all

I do hope this finds you all well? Have you been up to anything nice? Any fab adventures? Me neither lol!
Its been all work work work here as well as finishing off our bedroom and having time with hubby! We did manage a quiet weekend and some lunch out but back to work as normal! Hopefully we'll get some mini adventures this weekend if the weather is as nice as they say it will be???? Hmmmmm yeah we'll see

Today I wanted to share a "little" project I made over the past few days! I say "little" as well its anything but! 


What you think?? I wanted something a little different and knew I just had to try this out! The digi image Blooming Lovely is 7 inches tall and coloured up with my Spectrum Noir Markers. I then matched the flowers in the arrangement to her outfit 





I added one of the sentiments from the Time For Tea Design new release and sprayed the flowers with a sparkle spray that you can just make out in the pictures!

Before I go here's a wee peek at out lovely finished bedroom


If only I could keep hubby and the dog out and it would stay all lovely with no hairs everywhere and man stuff lol!

Well off to finish work, have a super day everyone

Woke to a few cm and its still falling tho with the damp ground its not lying on the roads so thats a good sign!!

Magazines and Gift Boxes xx

Afternoon you lovely lot

Hope this finds you all well?
Did you survive the hour less in bed today?? Or you still like me and walking about like a Zombie today? I could possibly still be getting over a fab Saturday Wedding Dress shopping for my future Sister in Law and all the family! Lunch and cocktails was a must!!

Now have any of you see the Simply Cards and Papercraft 175 Magazine yet


little me was lucky enough to make some fab Gift Box ideas for this. I really loved making these and getting to try a few ideas I've wanted to do for a while! There's even a few tutorials for you all to try them for yourself

Here's a peek


What one do your like?? I adore the Bottle Gift Box, just perfect to brighten up that Wine gift for a friend or family


I decorated mine with die-cuts but you could use stamps or anything form your crafty stash!

My other favourite was the Drawer Box! Using the same colour theme with Kraft card and colouring up the Bouquet Girl from Time for Tea Designs!



Shes perfect for this wee Gift Box as she suits any important Celebration not just Birthdays! I coloured her up with my Spectrum Noirs and the papers through all the pieces are Pebbles Heart of Home

Hope you pick up your copy of the magazine or get it here and you'll find more amazing craft projects and plenty to inspire you!

Have a great Sunday and week to come

Fairy Toadstool xx

Happy Monday lovelies

Hope you are all well and had a fab weekend? All ready to start the new week?

Its been a busy few weeks here with work and then the snow! How did you lot get on with it?? We were snowed in for a few days but it gave us the chance to start our bedroom make over and catch up with work! The only good thing with the snow we didn't have to worry about there being no milk with me having an allergy, there was plenty soya milk on the shelf hehehe


Now today I wanted to share with you a fab shaped card


I created the large Toadstool from A3 cardstock then added pattern paper to make the detailed parts, added green scrap card for grass and the Mulberry flowers to nestle my little Fairy amongst



You can find the fab wee Time For Tea Designs digi stamp here




Before I head off I have to let you all know about the Design Team Call that we have going on over at Time For Tea Designs



If your interested you can find all the details you need here

That's me for today, hope you like my wee Toadstool as much as I loved making her
Take care and until next time

A touch of Pink xx


Happy Sunday lovelies

I do hope this finds you all well? I'm on the mend after that flu just wouldn't shift! Been a busy week work and personal life, non-stop and lots of baking!

It was the SWI's (Scottish Women's Institute) 100th Birthday last year and this year was our Institutes 90th. We had a fab wee meal on Wednesday with some fab speeches, games and lots of stories from over the years. I made lots of cupcakes instead of one big cake so the ladies could take their individual one home and enjoy when they weren't so full after the yummy meal!


A fab night, lots of laughs and I was stuffed!!
Also this week was my mum's friend Diane's 50th Birthday! Sadly we couldn't make it to the party with Hubby still being ill but I did enjoy making her wee card!


I made a wee easel card using the stunning new digital stamp Happy New Year, Raise a Glass Girl from the fab Time for Tea Designs




I coloured the image with my Spectrum Noirs and the papers are First Edition Sweet Nothings and lots of glitter to make it all sparkle

I also baked again for Craft Club on Saturday where we made some paper bunting, had a good gossip and they enjoyed some yummy Lemon and Lime gooey Cupcakes

Well I'm off to finish some crochet and heat up by the fire, its so cold tonight and can see us getting the snow soon!

Take care and have a great week you lovely lot

Super Busy xxxx

Hi there lovelies

Its been a mad few months here with work and family life!
My wee Magazine work has really taken off and also my regular orders have been coming in thick and fast, which I love but does leave little time for my blog! Hubby has been so busy and when we have any spare time we're off to the caravan having little adventures with the dog

I wanted to stop by and share some of my latest makes and adventures with you all

These wee makes are for the Spectrum Noir Design Team with the fab new Frankie Stamps




-----------------------------------------------------------
These are some of the new Aquamarkers Colours and stamps that I got to play with and create some pretty cards below


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is just some of my makes from the magazines that I have loved making


Papercraft Essentials 146 "Exploring the Outdoors"


Papercraft Essentials 147 "The Beach"


Making Cards June Using Sheena Douglas Stencils


Hunkydory Christmas Box Magazine makes



Papercraft Essentials 148 " Glitz and Glam" some of the fab makes


Creative Stamping 45 "in the Kitchen" fab fun makes


Simply Cards and Papercrafts 166 "Wedding"


Simply Cards and Papercrafts 167 " Masculine"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have really loved making some of these pieces, especially the Wedding makes. The cakes are the perfect change for a wee Table Centre and can be changed to suit any Wedding theme. Another favourite was the wee Clam Shell card, 

I'll tell you a secret ...... I made this is pretty purple colours and finished with gems and ready to be pictured when I noticed I hadn't stuck with the colour theme I had been set!!! Whoops, so another whole card was made and luckily I had made a template!! Shhhhhhhssssss So always read and re-read your allocation details hehhehe

Anyways I'm sure you've had enough of me and all my pics but here's another one of our latest adventures in Loch Ness


Me and hubby Kayaking on the Loch enjoying the views and watching for Nessie

Have a great night all
