My Little Pressie

My Little Pressie


Hi everyone,

 I hope that you're all well and looking forward to the weekend, I'm sorry that I haven't been around a lot lately my old steam powered computer finally died on me and unfortunately I've lost quite a few files from my hard drive :( I've lost Digi's, watermarks, pictures of all my cards and documents, but I suppose it's my own fault I really should have backed everything up onto a flash drive. Never mind lesson learnt lol anyway this is just a quick blog post from me tonight I wanted to share with you all the little pressie that my other half gave me today. I couldn't believe it and was completely blown away. He had sent one of the Hannah Lynn images that I'd coloured off to have an iphone case made for me.



He usually forgets thing like birthdays and such but this more than makes up for that and he most definitely gets lots and lots of brownie points for this lol.

Hobbycutz Challenge #13

Hobbycutz Challenge #13


Hi everyone, I hope that you're all well and are having a lovely weekend. Well another two weeks have passed so it's time once again for our challenge over at "Hobbycutz" and our theme this time is :- 

Create Your Own background

Our sponsor this fortnight is 


Please note that you do not HAVE to use a "Hobbycutz" laser die but for those of you who do there's an additional prize draw of a £5.00 voucher to spend at Hobbycutz.

This is my DT card for the challenge



To create my background on this card I stamped two of these fabulous "Janessa" Hannah Lynn images I then coloured one of the images using my Promarker's and Spectrum Noir. I then cut out the other image and used it as a mask over the coloured image. Then I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Dusty Concord, Chipped Sapphire & Faded Jean and a duster brusg to colour the background, I then used versamark to stamp flourishes all over the inked up background and I then heat embossed using silver detail embossing powder. Once I'd finished that I removed the mask and added glossy accents to the crescent moon & "Janessa's" eyes and lips

A Stitch In Time...

A Stitch In Time...


Hi everyone,  I hope that you're all well and that you're all having lovely weather, it's cooled down here a little but the sun's still shining. Today's post is a card that I made yesterday using Tailor Tilda.



Card Recipe
cream 6x6 card, core'dinations, first edition design papers, silver mirri, organza ribbon, mulberry roses & blooms from WOC, tulle fabric, small bobbins, silver sewing machine charm, diamond stickles, threads and liquid pearls




To colour Tilda I've used Spectrum Noir, Promarkers and Flexmarkers and a Inkssentials white opaque pen.




I raided my sewing box to try and find some threads that I could wrap around the bobbins but I didn't have a peach coloured thread so I've had to use orange and I hope that it doesn't stand out like a sore thumb lol.

Anyway I'm off out this morning to the vets :( with my other little fur baby kitty" Djett " because she's off her food at the moment and she is only a small and quite an old kitty so I just want to make sure that she's ok. I'm dreading going because it's not that long ago that we lost our other little fur baby" Fudge " so I'm still feeling a little raw if you know what I mean, but I suppose needs must.
