I always wanted to be a Red Head!! Sadly my hair colour comes out of a bottle!!!!
Emily has got some fantastic new stamps in and I have been itching to have a play..........Find them here Love them.........
I used Milliner Misses for my makes this week........
The stamps are fantastic quality and I really enjoyed using them.. I coloured her with ProMarkers... The papers are by K&Co....
I just added some 'tatty' flowers and a flourish. Ribbon is from my stash and the Candi just finished it off....
It's ages since I have played with Tags and I thought maybe I would have a go now....
I embossed the base card with one of my 'bug embossing folders......
I coloured the background with my DIs and did a bit of water splattering and then matted the image to match the card........Just added my 'tatty' flowers and a bit of yarn at the top.........
Thanks for looking, I'll see you soon......Please check these stamps out as they are wonderful and stamp really well............

I made this little notebook last week using Paper Smooches My Peeps to match the card I made my friend. I also made her a flower brooch to go with it, I thought the colours blended quite well so it felt like I was giving her a matching gift set.
This was my card from last week…
Finally this is the little crochet flower I made for her…
All I need to do now is actually post it to her!
Until next week …

I still have some of my Christmas stamps to hand and I really want to be more organised this year, I lost my way a bit last Christmas and didn't enjoy the last minute rush that I had..........
So I got one of my Tildas and decided to go a bit 'Vintagey' with her......
I have used 'Tilda With a Big Bouquet' available from Emily here...Love her.........
She is coloured with Promarkers. The papers are from a HUGE 12x12" pad that I have had for an age and I thought I really should start using it!!! These perhaps wouldn't be my first choice, but the colours are good! I've just added some ribbon (don't think any card of mine is complete without it!!)........The flowers are an old Cuttlebug die and I've just added Candi with some stickles on the top.
Thanks for looking, I'll see you soon.............

Today’s card is for a lovely lady I haven’t known very long. She is the most generous, kind, and fun person I’ve ever met. So very knowledgeable, I feel really privileged to have met her. She has been giving me lots of her time and guidance recently so I wanted to make her a little thank you. I thought this proud peacock was up to the job!
I used Paper Smooches My Peeps. For the top left I just stamped the one feather five times to make that five arrangement and coloured it in. For the beautiful peacock I used the following sets;
- First fan: 5
- Second fan: 2, 3, 2
- Third fan: 2, 2, 2, 2
As you can see the sentiment is from this set too. I need to use the Owl. My friend coloured him the other day in the most beautiful colour variations, must play!
I used the following Copics:
- G09, G05, G03, G02
- YG25, WG23, WG21
- V09, YR30

Thanks for looking, I'll catch up with you soon....

Hi, it’s Ruby. I’ve got a simple little thank you card to share with you today.
I think I could have done with running this through PSE to straighten it up a bit, it is straight in real life, honestly!
I used Paper Smooches Friendly Flowers for the little flower and coloured it in using my copic markers. I like to stamp out images and sit and colour them when I get time, that way I always have a little stash of images to use on cards when I need them. I must be due another session soon.
Mostly I’m inspired by patterned paper so I use that as my starting point when choosing what colours to use, I find it really helps. How do you choose what colours to use?
I really must use this set more often, it’s so lovely and I’ve only used a few stamps from it so far.
That’s it from me for now, back next week!

Here’s what I created with my set. I needed a few simple thank you cards. I’ve always liked stamps that have a mixture of words based on the same theme, in this case thanks.
My hubby took one look at it and said, ‘It doesn’t look like it’s finished’. He then tried to redeem himself by adding, ‘Well it doesn’t, you normally do that layering thing with your pop dots’. I have been trying my hand lately at CAS, it seems to be what I am more inspired to do. Oh well, it’s at least another one of my thank you cards made lol.
This is the lovely stamp set… It’s called ‘Framed Fonts’
Have a fab week!

Can you see the stitch lines down the side of the card?... they are from another of the new sets called
Needle little Love, it's such a versatile set with lots of decorative elements.
Thanks for looking

I am here to do the first 2013 post for MTDS, I’m the first person up to start of the New Year. How exciting, a whole year of inspiration is waiting for you.
I made this little notepad for my friend that is mad about sending me ‘Did you know…?’ texts.
Some examples of the kind of thing I mean are..
- Did you know cats spend 66% of their life asleep?
- Did you know Switzerland eats the most chocolate equating to 10 kilos per person per year? (I soooo need to move!)
- Did you know a 'jiffy' is actually 1/100th of a second?
I used Paper Smooches Smarty Pants and the following Copics…
BG49, BG45, BG10, YR09, YR07 YR04, Y19, Y15, Y13, E11, E00, E29, E27, E25
I just used my computer to generate the sentiment.
Here’s to a fabulous 2013!
