Sugar Nellie's Side Step Card..

The Sugar Nellie group over on Facebook have started a weekly challenge and this week it is to make a side step card, which I have never done before!  After a few failed attempts at cutting and folding I finally cracked it.
I have used my brand new Sassy Girl which goes perfect with my little Timmie birdcages...she is coloured with my brown Kho-i-noor pencils. The sentiment is from my stash and I cut it into a little ticket.

Thanks for looking!x

Enjoy your Sunday!x

Simply Create Challenge...

Well I have stared at the Simply Create inspiration board for long enough...and this is what I have come up with! 
 I have used some of this lovely corrugated kraft card and painted the edges with white acyrilic paint.....the sentiment is a freebie from Raindrop Echo Designs......the little heart has been painted and edges inked....and the ribbon has been in my stash forever!

Here's a little peek at tomorrows card!
Enjoy your Saturday night!!

Baby Baby........................

Lovely little baby card today.....I am going to start making a few baby cards for my box I always seem to get asked for them this time of year!!
For this one I made a little pull out tag with the details on it...this way I can get a few cards made and then all I have to do is the details for the tag!...I have loads of yummy baby themed papers to use!

I am off to my bed now...I think Jude may have passed the dreaded lurgy to me now :0(

30th and a reminder!!...

 This is one of my card orders from last week......I haven't gotten much done this last week as my poor Mum has fractured her ankle and poor Jude has been poorly the last couple of days ( at one point I think you could have fried an egg on her tummy she was sooo hot!) I have been Nurse for the last week!  But Mum is getting about better now she has a proper cast on and Jude seems to be over the worst, so fingers crossed I might get some cardmaking done!
The paper on this card is from a freebie Kate Knight pad...image coloured with Promarkers....numbers covered in glitter and the flowers and pin are from my stash! Ta Da!
Thanks for popping by!
P.S.Don't forget you still have plenty time to enter the challenge over at Simple Create!!...Go On  you could win £100 worth of lovely new stash!!

I love this sassy froggy!...a freebie from Whimsy Stamps...coloured with my Kho-i-noor pencils.  I haven't added a sentiment yet..quite like it blank actually.  The papers are from my freebie MME pad and the flower and button are from my stash.
Short post just to get the dinner on before Zumba!!

The Ribbon Girl Challenge............

Ooooo apologies for the picture, bad light here just now!  Well well... I am off to a good start..two challenges entered in as many days!! How long will this last?!
The Ribbon Girl Blog has a colour challenge...Pink and Green.

The papers I have used are from a freebie pack MME I think...Magnolia image coloured with my Promarkers...(I finally have the full set!  Taken me just under year of getting a few each pay day!)...sentiment from Craftwork Cards and ribbon of course from my stash!  There's my faux stitching again!...maybe I should invest in a machine!


OOooooo look at this lovely parcel that arrived this morning!  My order from The Ribbon Girl!
Beautifully packaged! chuffed with all my new goodies!!  I will be placing another order as soon as I get paid!  Thank you ladies!!

Sugar Bowl #51.....

This year I am going to try and enter more challenges.....think I may have said this last year too!!  Anyway I always love the sketches over at The Sugar Bowl and as their challenges run for a fortnight then there is no excuse for me not to enter...loads of time!!

I have had these Basic Grey papers for ages....another resolution was to try and get through all my old papers that haven't been touched!.....lets see if that one lasts too, the test will be when I go shopping and see all the lovely new papers!!  I have pretty much stuck to the sketch and kept it clean and simple.  I have done some faux stitching, I really want to get Tim Holtz's fancy ruler but for the moment I pinched one of the girls rulers which had little holes and then used my white gel pen...even made the holes a bit wonky as it would look like that if I was to use a machine!!
This gorgeous Sassy Girl has been coloured with my new pencils I got from my lovely hubby for Christmas...first outing for them today...still trying to get the hang of the blending!

Thanks for looking!!
