Pink Angel!

I fell in love with this Sugar Nellie stamp which is unusual as there's no bear in sight lol!
Not sure how often I'll use it but technically my friend bought it for me :c)
Paper is craftwork cards layered onto aubergine card which doesn't show up very well unfortunately really wish I could take better pictures

DD has asked for this in blue for her xmas card so at least I'll use it twice \0/

Penny Black Christmas

I am eternally greatful to being paired with Rainmac on the Crafty Place Xmas stash swap - the papers and sentiments are both from her lovely lady that she is :c)

Images were bought ready stamped from Ebay and the hedgie was cut out with Nesties Labels 8.

The hedgie one is for BIL and has had to be hiddenf from OH as a Celtic scarf doesn't go down well in this house lol!

Cheapskate Xmas Cards

The only thing of mine I used for these cards were the card blanks and the promarkers :c)

Images from Wifey, sentiment from Rainmac, holly donated by DD from a box of embellies she was given and paper free gift with Cardmaking and Papercrafts magazine.

Buddy Bear Does Christmas

This was the original colourway that I intended to use Buddy from Nutcrafters for when I bought him.
I'd like to enter him in 3 challenges:
Spoonful of Sugar - sketch rotated through 180 degrees
Allsorts - Favourite Furry
Crafty Catz - Use brads or buttons (they're on the wheels of the rabbit card)
I have no idea what the paper is as I won it from the famous Pink Lady Mel (winner of Docrafts Scrapbook Apprentice) \0/ \0/

A Hint of a Bear

As I was hyperventillating at not having used a bear today I sneaked one into my last card :c) Another Sugar Nellie stamp and more Making Memories papers but this time it's the Fresh Anthology Eliza Collection

Birthday treats!

I treated myself to these Sugar Nellie stamps from Funky Kits with my birthday money. And not a bear in sight!!!

The umbrella one should have a robin on it but I removed it so I could use it for a birthday card :c) The stripey paper is Dreamstreet Baylees Garden Awning Stripe.

The paisley and blue papers are both Making Memories Vintage Hip Collection Paisley and the sentiment is a Lili of the Valley stamp

Time for a cuppa!

I set the theme on Crafty Place ATC swap this month as food and drink.

Here's the one I made for Melissa.
Image is from Ildico.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

No it's buddy bear again Lol! This fortnight's Nutshells challenge is to use one of their stamps with any current sketch so I've used the one from Bee Crafty although Buddy got in the way of 2 embellishments :c).
The papers are My Mind's Eye Wild Asparagus.

This month's crafty place challenge has an Autumn theme.
I used a freebie from Ildi Co and added a flower plus a Sizzix die cut from the leaves and branches set.

I love my new label nesties :c)

Stitch It (Fake of Course!)

Ildi Co's challenge this fortnight is to use stitching.

I couldn't face digging my machine out from all the piles in the spare room so I cheated and drew them - ok the zig zags are a bit random lol!

The image is an Ildi Co Kuma Cuddles that I won last week!

Buddy Bear Diaries

Moving on from the calendars and notebooks I had been on the lookout for some cheap diaries to alter and found some today in Poundworld at 2 for £1.

The covers had originally been covered with sticky back plastic but some were quite creased and all of them were marked.

Once again buddy bear from Nutcrafters to the rescue - lol!
Buddy with honey and Buddy with truck arrived today so watch this space :c)

Man U themed Birthday Bag

Guess who my DS supports? lol!
Just an excuse really to use my new labels nesties.

But I'm quite pleased with the notebook.

A Little bit of Lilac

School Christmas Fair Bits

The notebooks were in a pack of 8 from Poundland - covered with red card embossed with various embossing folders. Added images from Pollycraft Wilbur Woof for Winter printed onto Tesco value photo paper.

I forgot to take pictures of the calendars and post it not holders before I put them in bags - they are actually 2 separate coasters from Calicocrafts

A Couple more Christmas Cards

I've finally realised how close Christmas is getting so threw together a couple of quick cards with Pollycraft freebies and paper from a recent stash swap

New Bear Alert!

I found this cute little guy's friend during a blog hop and had to invest. He's from Ildi co whose challenge at the mo is use the colours lilac lemon and cocoa - he's mounted onto to dark brown card and coloured with a cocoa promarker.

The layout is from the sketch challenge on I love promarkers.

Just Christmas and Birthday cards

Was looking for an idea to use this image from Sugar Nellie that I coloured during the week and found this lovely sketch on Just Christmas and Birthday cards

Paper is by The English Paper co and sentiment is a Lily of the Vally stamp

1st Birthday card

My friend is a bit stuck for time at the mo and her Grandson is 1 in a couple of weeks so made this for her in case she doesn't get time herself.

The animals are wall stickers from the Pound Shop :c)
