Victoria and Juliette's Night Out....

Hi Peeps....

It's time for another Bellarific Friday...  and I'm here to share my card inspired by this photo..

I chose to use an older image - this is Victoria and Juliette on a fab night out enjoying a cocktail or two!!  I decided to do a little paper piecing after being inspired by our lovely Sandiebella's post last week..  it's so easy to do and you can give fab patterns to their dresses this way.  I also did some shading on the pieced bit... showing the folds etc.

Card Info:
Paper - Doodlebug Design
Paper Piecing - scraps from stash
Colouring - Copics 
Skin - E000/00/11/71, R20 
Hair - E40/41/43, C5/7/9

Happy Weekend all......

It's a Rainbow type of world!


Hi Lovely Bloggers...

Today, I'm sharing a colourful card!!  Even though my first love is pink (you may have noticed!), I do love seeing rainbow colours together - so this card made me feel happy...  isn't it weird how colours can do that to you??

I used one of the new February images from CC Designs - this is Cinnamon Paints..  she's being a bit sloppy with her paint though... I can see lots of clearing up to do!

Card Info:
Dies - Lawn Fawn Scalloped Stitched Border, Lawn Fawn Stitched Edges
Paper - Echo Park

Sending Hugs...


Hi Lovely Blogging Friends...

It's Bellariffic Friday today (the weeks roll by so quickly!) and our theme this week was to use a die....  easy peasy huh??

I chose one of my favourite Squidgies to use (who am I kidding... every Stamping Bella image I use is my favourite while I'm using it - I really can't make up my mind with such gorgeousness to choose from!!)  Anyhows.... this is Huggy Squidgies..  for obvious reasons!

With Love......


Hi Lovely Blogging Buddies....

It's time for a new challenge at In The Pink - and we have a REALLY difficult one this time........  it's...


OK.... I was being a little bit sarcastic......  as it seems we all use dies/punches on our cards......  so you'll find it easy!!  I restricted myself to my three favourite pinks on this card... using them on the dress/shoes as well as the flowers.  The lighting wasn't too great when I tried to photograph my card... but I think you get the drift!!

Dies - Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Border

Gardening Chicks


Hi Lovely Blogging Friends...

It's Bellarific Friday so it's time for me to use another of my favourite Stamping Bella images - this time it's Gardening Chicks....  I LOVE these little guys enjoying some time in the sun!  Yes...... SUN......  what's that I hear you ask??  We're having lots of grey days here in the UK lately... but I'm sure sun is on it way!!!

Here is this week's Mojobella sketch to inspire...  I think I got close...

I hope you'll pop over to the Stamping Bella blog too (HERE), to see what my fabulously talented teamies came up with.

Colouring these guys (who btw, I call Chick, Flick and Dick - Dick's the silly one flat out on his back catching the rays!) made me feel summery..  I can't wait for the days of sitting in the garden with a long, cool drink feeling the warmth of the sun on my skin!  Hmmm.... rushing my life away I think!

Big hugs...

Some Bunny Loves Me....


Hi Lovely Bloggers...

I'm back into my comfy pink zone today...  It's time for a new release over at All Dressed Up...  and this is such a girlie image that my pink pens literally jumped out of the rack and begged to be used on her dress!

Lucky Little Leprechaun


Hi Lovely Blogging Friends....

Yes...... you're at the right blog!!!  It's me!  

Today's card demanded green - not a colour I use very much - but this little Leprechaun wouldn't have let me get away with less...  and he certainly didn't want to wear pink!! hehe!

He's part of the fabulous February release from CC Designs - he's been to the end of the rainbow and is making his way back with his pot of gold...  he needs to be careful as he's losing a few along the way!

Gold - Y21, YR23
Shading around image - B0000/000
Grounding - N0/1/2

Considering that green isn't on my 'go to' colours, I really loved how this turned out... hope you do too!

Happy Crafting.....

Lucky Clover...

Hi Lovely Bloggers...

Yes it's me AGAIN! (getting tired of me yet? lol!)  And this time, it's with our fabulous CC Designs Blog Hop!

Today is RELEASE DAY for the new FEBRUARY Stamps at C.C. Designs. As you have seen from our Preview Days, these new stamps revolve around Rainbows, Puddles, and Leprechauns, which of course are perfect for all those Spring and St. Paddy's Day cards. We also have a new Sentiment Set and an awesome background stamp! Also, we are going back to pre-cut rubber for our character stamps. The sentiments will remain clear for easy stamping.

I used the gorgeous little Lucky Clover for my card - and I tried to give her Irish colouring with red hair and pale skin - but I think my hair went a little TOO red, and her skin should have been paler!  Ah well.... the best laid plans of mice and men... as they say...
