Bunny Birthday

I bought this Whipper Snapper stamp in the Sir Stampalot sale earlier in the month and didn't want to tidy him away without trying him out.
The papers are Forever Friends spring collection and the sentiment Craftwork Cards.
He's also nice and flat to save on postage :c)

I think he fits these challenges
Crazy Challenge - happy birthday
Daring Cardmakers - year of the rabbit

Good Luck One Stitch At a Time

We have a choice for you this week at OSAAT - you can either use the photo inspiration or the theme of good luck! - check out the challenge blog for this weeks fabby prizes.
I've used Stitchy's image and papers from the new February Collab pack for my card this week. I created the sentiment using a free font called Cool Dots.

We're Using Red at I Did it Creations

We're using red for valentine's day at IDIC this week and we're lucky enough to be sponsored by JLJ Designs this week. I've used her hearts and flowers papers together with bear with stitching for my CD this week. The smaller bear has been paper pieced onto one of the papers from the pack.

Knitting Bea

I was too tight to buy a set of pastel pencils as I wasn't sure if I would use them so bought some artists pastels instead for a fraction of the price. I'm quite pleased with my first attempt on this new sketchy Teddy Bea.
I've used Joy dies for the layered flowers and a Nellie Snellen die for the sentiment from Pink Gem to sit on. The embossing is a sizzix folder.

I would like to enter her into:
Crafty Catz - flowers
Wags N Whiskers - white

Teddy Bo Tuesday

II don't know where the last fortnight has gone but it's time for another Teddy Bo Tuesday over at the challenge blog. The new challenge for today is Seeing Double - use 2 of something on your card plus Teddy Bo or Teddy Bea of course. We were blown away by the number of fantastic entries we had for our last challenge and hope you'll join us again this time. Have you checked out the new release designs yet today?
I've used 2 of nearly everything on my card including the cute Teddy Bea image who I've coloured with promarkers. The heart patchwork is a rubber stamp by Dimension Forth which has been stamped directly onto the MME Signature Suite DP and mounted onto a nestie scalloped square. The blue one is from the same range.
The heart die cut is a Nellie Snellen die. I also added some stickles and sakura glitter pens for some sparkle :c)

Remember these?

The Padster bag makes a comeback lol! I had an order for 2 of them out of the blue from the mum of one of the girls at work who had one of the original ones.

These are slightly larger - mainly coz I had to guess the sizes as my notebook of instructions has disappeared in the major tidy up.

Just for fun................

Another cute Teddy Bo from here. He's a fridge magnet but couldn't help taking a picture of him sat on this yummy box of biscuits which I have managed to resist so far.

Anything goes at One Stitch at a Time

Its an Easy Peasy theme over at One Stitch at a Time this week anything goes! And we are sponsored by the fabulous Kenny K whose image I have used on my very bright card this week.

He is as usual coloured with Promarkers. The paper is DCWV and I've cut the letters using the Sizzix Man Oh Man alphabet from holographic card from the pound shop.

Bubbly Bea

Another Bea - are your bored yet? lol! There's loads more where this one came from at Teddy Bo - I desperately need more play time. Probably why I wasn't devastated when I received an email today asking if I was still interested in reducing my work hours pending possible public sector job cuts :c)

She's exhausted after all that exercise in my earlier post LOL! She also has a very cute paw print bath mat in her accessories set that I couldn't fit on.
I've used a clear Sakura glaze pen on the bubbles but it doesn't show in the pics. Papers are Making Memories and sentiment is a discontinued Pollycraft stamp
I'd like to enter her into:

Bea Active!

This is one of this weeks new releases at Teddy Bo. Bea makes me tired just looking at her. I'm not known for being anything approaching a gym bunny in fact doing sit ups makes me pass out (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it lol!)
And yes it's another calendar for one of my friends to have on her desk.
Sorry about all the photos but I've just downloaded Gimp and am having fun playing with it plus Bea is so very cute :c)
The paper is from one of the papermania capsule collections, sentiment from Create with TLC, flowers I am roses and prima

New Beginnings at OSAAT

Yes you are on the right blog - nothing cute or furry in this post - have tried cool and elegant for my new beginnings DT project for our challenge over at One Stitch at a Time this week. I've used Panda Bear papers here called Going in Circles and printed both my image and sentiment directly onto them and added a few pearls.
Both the image and the sentiment are from Create with TLC.

It's not a card it's a calendar:

Feeling Blue?

January is such a long and miserable month after the excitement and expense of Christmas so this week you can feel blue with us over at I Did I Creations. Blue is my favourite colour but its incredibly difficult to find nice blue papers - grumble grumble.

We're sponsored by Ellephantastic this week and I've used this gorgeous Roger the Bear image on my desk calendar together with Papermania papers from one of their huge basics packs and a sentiment from Create with TLC.

I would like to enter it into some new beginnings challenges:

Christmas Lace at Die Cut Dreams Christmas

I made this card ages ago as Guest Designer for Die Cut Creams Christmas Club and am sure the challenge was supposed to be before Christmas but spotted it this morning when I was checking blogs for new challenges so have now posted it.

It's really a bit early to be thinking about Christmas but Robyn's Fetish is the sponsor and she has a huge choice of digis - her new valentine ones are really lovely - remember a digi is for life not just for Christmas LOL

Teddy Bear Heaven

Do you love bears as much as I do? Well this cute little guy and his girlfriend have their own Teddy Bo website which opens today and they have their own blog so you can see what they've been up to.

Even better than that I've been asked to join the Design Team so I've been playing with bears in secret all weekend - what more could a girl ask for????

The theme for the first challenge is anything goes so please nip over to check out the details and leave Gayle, Tammy and us girls some love and drool over our awesome creations.

Here's my first Teddy Bo card for them:

 I'll post a Teddy Bea one and a Teddy Bo fridge magnet shortly :c)

Its Lovely to be Back

One Stitch at a Time is back with a new challenge after a lovely long break. The theme this week is Love awwww and we're showcasing the new collab that you can get free if you spend $10 at Stitchybear Stamps.
I've used Lil Divas papers from the collab to make a coffee cup gift bag type thingy that I saw in the Scorpal November E-zine and added a penguin using an Elzybells stamp.
He's layered onto a couple of die cuts from my new Nellie Snellen die sets.
I've sadly had to eat the sweets as I had to cut a hole in the bag to fit them in but OH prefers pear drops anyway LOL!

I would like to enter it into:
Fuzzy Wuzzy, Crafty Sentiments, CES, Craft Your Days Away & Fab N Funky

Velllum at IDIC

I struggled with the challenge at I Did It Creations this week as I've never used vellum on a card and didn't even think I had any until I found this bit which I've used to make a frame with a nestie. We are sponsored by Stitchy Stamps this week and I've used her gorgeous image called Letters Home. The sentiment is a personal impressions stamp and covered my tiny bits of tape to secure the vellum with card candy from Craftwork Cards.

Finally a cushion!

Well what can I say - only a little late. The baby this is for is only 2 1/2 months old lol!
I made sure my friend was sitting down before I handed it over to her yesterday.

Show us...........

Your favourite technique is our first challenge for the New Year at I Did it Creations and for the New Year we have new sponsors. This week it's Glitterbabe and I've used her bunch of flowers for my tent inspired card or it might turn into a treat bag :c)
In true Libran style I couldn't decide if embossing or die cutting was my fave technique so have used both and just for good measure die cut the letters and embossed them with swiss dots lol!
