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??

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...

DIES and/or PUNCHES

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!!

Paper - Authentique
Dies - Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Border
Mama Elephant Mini Messages
Sentiment - Mama Elephant Mini Messages
Colouring - Copics

We have a fabulous prize on offer if your creation is chosen at random from our Perfect Pinkies....  you could win a £15 gift voucher to spend at Dies To Die For!  Sooooooo what're you waiting for??  Grab those pink pens and get over to In The Pink!!



Big hugs

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...

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...

What's New??


Hi Lovely Blogging Friends...

It's time for another new challenge over at In The Pink - and our theme this time is 

WHAT'S NEW?

So we're wanting to see what you can come up with using something NEW!  Come on... get out all the lovely new stash that you got for Christmas and join in!!  You could interpret it in another way too...  for a new baby, or a new house etc..


I chose to use a new image that I got free when I joined in the Advent Calendar fun at Kit and Clowder...  it's from Stamp Anniething - a company whose images I adore!!  This is actually a digi - but they only actually sell rubber stamps.  Such a shame that we can't as yet buy them in the UK!  Oooh and I got some new papers on Saturday at Samuel Taylors - the plain pink is one of them - it's from Hobby House.
