Happy Birthday Little Lady

Good afternoon everyone.
Just want to thank you for visiting.  It's great to have you here :)

There is only a few days to go before the closing of my Valentine's Day blog candy.

You can find out all about it & submit your entry here.


This week our challenge to you at Delightful Challenges is to create a design Using Your Scraps :)  To help get you motivated, we are thankful to have
Cut N Paste Memories as our sponsor.

They are offering a WHOPPING $25 Gift Voucher to spend in their online store to the winner :)  We all have our supply of left over scraps, so now is your chance to use them.  Go grab them & start designing :)  Good luck & I can't wait to see what you come up with.

This week I have had lovely Shop Talk Vicky helping me out with my new design.  Now that I have interrupted her phone call, she tells me you can get her here.

She seems to be heading towards the shop.  Oh sorry...she has just informed me that its called a 'boutique'.  So sorry Vicky!  Oh's her boutique & its called Vicky's Boutique.  Hmmm I wonder what she stocks in there?  But you can get the image here.

Vicky tells me that her little friend is having a Birthday & she wanted to get some flowers, so we got them from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Pretty are they not?  Vicky loves pink so the Pink Tone Trellis Roses seemed really appropriate & they look gorgeous :)

Vicky is a sucker for pearls & charms so we added them too.  Of course we had to match up the charm with her handbag.  Hmmm, the degree we go to lol.  I hope her little friend likes them :)

Vicky wanted the inside decorated as well.  Pink, pink, pink! lol

We used my scraps for the corners, the hearts & just the general pink cardstock on the card.  Vicky also wanted some sparkle happening so we added some Stickles to the design.

The DP's are Provo Craft & Bella Blvd which are from my oldies stash.  I didn't get to use anything else from my Oldies Stash this week but will try to do better next week :)

Vicky & myself are pretty happy with the design & had lots of fun putting it together :)

If you look close enough you can see that I have used Glossy Accents on Vicky's sunnies, belt, her mobile phone, the boutique windows & the sign on top of the roof.  We also glossed up her shoes too :)

I have also specifically used the R59 Copic colour for a challenge that I am going to enter this design into.

This design is available at my

Some Bunny Loves You

Well it's that time of the week again :)
Wow, I wish I wouldn't leave things to the last minute lol.  I have got SO many things happening this weekend and during the past week that I didn't think I would get this design completed in time for the next Delightful Challenges project.  But I made it ...phew! lol


You can find out all about it & enter here.

Have you met Easter Daisy before?  Isn't she just gorgeous with those cute little bunny ears & slippers?  Easter Daisy has been helping me out with my new design but she told me that she needed something to sit on, so we decided on the Toadstool Set.  Of course, they are also wonderful images from Digital Delights :)

Easter Daisy & I had a fantastic time with the new challenge that is happening right now at Delightful Challenges.  This week we are challenging you to design something about 'Love'.  Perfect with Valentine's Day coming up :)  You can check out the challenge details here.

This week we are sponsored by the wonderful Scrapyland.

 The winner of the challenge gets a $20 store gift voucher!  
Woo hoo...imagine what you can do with that :)  Go check them out & let the motivation take place :)

I had alot of fun creating this design.  I hope you like it :)

I have had this red & white ribbon for about ten yrs, so I am sooo glad I was able to use it.  I'm happy to say that there isn't anymore of this ribbon left...Woo Hoo lol.  It feels really good to finally get another item out of my 'Oldies Stash' :)

The 'Love' charm I only got a few weeks ago, but the heart buttons are from my Oldies Stash too.  I still have a few of those left but I'm sure I will get to use them all up one day :)

I used the Romance Sentiment Set from Digital Delights too.

The Doily & flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The DP is from Bo Bunny Designs which is also from my 10 yr Oldies Stash & so is the cardstock that I used.  Do you know that I have about 6 sheets of the 12 x 12 Bo Bunny DP?  What was I thinking? lol
I guess I bought so much of it cos' I was going to use them for my scrapbook pages...which I hardly do anymore.  Hmmmm lol.

I also decorated the inside of the card & used another image from Digital Delights called Tree of Love which may I add has a 30% discount right now.  It's a delightful image to colour :)

So here is what I have used from my 'Oldies Stash' on this design:

Bo Bunny DP
Red Cardstock
3 Heart Buttons
Embroidery Thread
I Love You Ribbon.

I just love those bunny slippers :)
I have also specifically used the R59, BG93 & BG96 Copic colours for a challenge that I am going to enter this design into.

May God Bless You & Keep You.

Good afternoon everyone :)
I hope you have all had a fantastic week.

I haven't been up to much, just still looking for a new house for us to live in.  Hopefully something will turn up soon :)  Whilst waiting for that to happen, I may as well keep on craftin' my designs :)

Win Win Win :)

You can find out all about it & enter here.

I'd like to introduce you to Praying Boy.  Isn't he cute?  He is one of Wendy's (Louby Lou) NEW Release images at Digital Delights which is where you can find him.  There are many more images in the new release so be sure to go & have a look :)

My little Praying Boy is helping me with my next challenge on the Delightful Challenges Design Team.
This week the challenge is:  Punches & Dies.

We are very lucky to have The Cutting Cafe as our sponsor this week.

So grab your creative mojo hat and start punching & using your diecuts so that you can be in the chance of winning 2 sets from The Cutting Cafe!  You've got to be in it to win it, right?   :)

Check out the details of the Punches & Dies Delightful Challenge here.
Good luck to you :)

Here is my latest design.  I hope you like it :)

I finally got my parcel from Wild Orchid Crafts the other day (just in time for this design) & I had a wonderful time using some of the many new flowers I got :)

I also used Digital Delights Prayer Sentiment set which you can find here.
I also added some Glossy Accents to the button on the back of the little guys pj's.

For those of you who have been following my blog would know that I have been making it my mission to ensure I use supplies from my 'Oldies Stash'.   
You would probably be amazed with how much of my stash has been totally neglected throughout the years.  It's amazing! ...and sad really lol.
So here is what I have used from the Oldies Stash on this design.

* 7 Eyelets (got hundreds left)
*  Buckeye Cardstock (nearly all gone)
*  5 Brads
*  2 Buttons (got thousands left lol)
*  2 Jump rings
So far so good :)

(Click here to get email updates so that you don't miss out on my new designs). 

I am also going to enter this design into another challenge where I could only use specific colour Copics.  So I chose to use BG93, BG96 & R59.  Not only did I use them to colour my little Prayer Boy image, but I also coloured the pearls with my BG96 & R59 Copics.  They look pretty good don't you think?

This is my first time using Seam Binding Ribbon which is also new :)
I ordered about four different colours so I'm sure you will be seeing them all pretty soon lol.

I also used my new Martha Stewart Branch punch, Lace Edger punch & my Die-namics Fancy Flourish.

Stitching with my sewing machine wasn't all that fun lol  I still have a very long way to go in regards to perfection lol.

I love my Colorbox Cats Eye Fluid Chalk Ink which I most definately have to get more colours of.

I used my Heart punch for the inside of the design & placed the two buttons on top of each heart & then placed my R59 Copic coloured pearl on top of that :)  The hearts are popped up to add more dimension.

So that's my design for this week :)  I can't wait to see yours over at Delightful Challenges.
