'Little Skater'

Good morning folks.  I hope you had a lovely crafty weekend.  I didn't manage to get much crafty play time as it was my daughter's 14th and nephew's 1st birthday so it has been a tad busy, but hey keeps me out of mischief lol!!

Well I didn't get much time to play but I do have my Crafteezee make to share with you.  So this is All Dressed Up 'Little Skater' one of the new stamps released by Crafteezee and she is so sweet.

I decided to stamp her onto kraft and coloured her with a mix of copics and spectrum noirs. My colour scheme was taken from the beautiful Mintay 'The Sweetest Christmas' papers and I layered them up on to kraft as well.  I also fussy cut around a few images and layered them underneath and in the corner just for a little extra interest.

I love how the markers look softer on kraft card and I just used a couple of cool grey prisma's blended for the background.

Copics/Spectrum Noirs list

Skin:  E000, E11, E13
Hair:  E43, E44, E47, E49
Clothes:  R000, R32, R35, R37, R39/Spectrum Noirs GT1, GT2, GT3, JG4

Okay so that is all from me today peeps.  Links to the Crafteezee goodies I've used are at the bottom of my post.  I'm playing catch up with my craft now this week after the last couple of days have been super busy.  Don't you just hate it when life gets in the way!!!

Take care and happy crafting.

It's a Christmas matching set kind of day!

Hello my lovelies I'm popping in from a rather soggy Bournemouth to share with you a little matching Christmas set I've made for my Polkadoodles DT project this week.

Medium:  Prismacolor pencils

The DT were challenged to make a card with matching envelope, tag, wrapping paper and bow, but for all you folks entering the challenge is real simple as it's always 'anything goes' so no reason not to play and there are always fab prizes up for grabs!

So for my card I chose to colour up Holly Sparkles Christmas Unicorn with my Prismacolor pencils on kraft.  Isn't she just adorable.  Here's a closer look at her.

So I love the idea of everything matching don't you just adds that little something extra.  Imagine handing someone this little set at Christmas time how special would that be.

Anyway, that is all from me today folks.  I hope you enjoyed stopping by and maybe I've inspired you to have a go at making your own matching set.  If you have we'd love for you to share it with us either over on the Polkadoodles Challenge blog HERE or join us on our Facebook page HERE there is always lots of inspiration and we're a lovely friendly bunch over there.

Take care and happy crafting.

'Little Dreamer'

Hello my lovelies, I hope you are all well.  We've had an absolutely manic week I really do not know whether I am coming or going lol.  My son turned 18 so we've had family get togethers and meals and all sorts and this evening we agreed to let him have a few of his mates round.  So I have holed myself up in my craft room and as I type I am listening to some form of music at a fairly high decibel and they are playing some form of drinking game.  So this really will be a fairly quick pop in from me this evening to share a little crafty make with you.

Anyway, Crafteezee have released some new All Dressed Up stamps and they are adorable.  So for my card I have used the sweet stamp 'Little Dreamer' and teamed her with some Mintay 'Old Manor' papers which are divine I so love the colour palette.

I decided to mat all the papers and image on black card to really make it pop.

I have used a Lady E leaf spray and dirtied up some Fantasy chipboard to add under my ribbon and flowers.  I have put the links to all of the products I have used and can be found over at the Crafteezee store at the end of my post.

Okay that's all from me folks.  Apparently the lads have ordered pizza and it's just arrived so I'm going to see if I can sneak a cheeky slice from them lol!!

Take care and happy crafting.

Hi lovely peeps I'm a little late popping in with my post, it's been in draft for days but OMG what a week we've had here and I've only just managed to pop in now to finish it lol!!  

October for us is generally a very busy month.  Both my kiddies have birthdays, one at the beginning and the other at the end (didn't think that through now did I!!).  So this last week has been operation Birthday for my son who will be the grand age of 18 this coming Tuesday and I've literally spent the whole weekend getting things sorted.

Anyway, lets get to why I've popped in.  There is a new challenge up over at Polkadoodles so I am here to show you my DT make.  As always it's an 'anything goes' theme for all you lovely lot, but the DT were challenged with making a 'reveal' card.  Well I have to admit I was a tad stumped when I first found out, but after a little searching this is what I came up with.

Tree and Headstone:  Witchie Witchie download bundle

I used a pumpkin digi from the Witchie Witchie download bundle and just resized it and cut it out to make my card base.  The letters were just done in word and I cut them out.  For the reveal part I didn't have all the fancy dies so just used a circle die I had in my stash and it works just as well.  You can see I cut a reveal in the last letter 'O' printed off 4 different items .. 2 are pictures and 2 are sentiments stuck them down on the reveal circle and when you turn it you have the choice of either a bat, a cat or 2 halloween sentiments.

A bit of a closer look in the next piccie.  You can see I've changed the reveal picture to a sentiment.

Okay so that's all from me today.  I'm off to do some birthday baking now.

Take care and happy crafting.
