Pink to be your main colour !!

We Three Cats

is one of my favourite Little Claire stamps,

what is yours ??

This months stamp challenge is "Your Favourite Little Claire Stamp" and the fab prize up for grabs is a £10.00 Little Claire voucher !!

I've made a background for the cats using distress inks, stamped the "We Three Cats" and then hand drew the wall and added fantage for the snow ( brill stuff !!) Coloured the cats using my usual spectrum noir pens. Die cut some snowflakes and glittered them using stickles (hate loose glitter) Used four of the Dinkies Mini Snowy Ombre papers under the snowflakes and then mounted all these onto a white card blank.

Finished with the Dinkies text Merry Christmas, some wiggly black fine lines round edge and a ribbon bow with button !!

So what's your favourite LC stamp then ????  It could win you a fab £10.00 to spend at Little Claires !!

I'm away with the fairies today which was Jo's September ATC swap theme  !!

Made the backgrounds using distress inks and then flicking water onto them,  love this technique !! Then stamped my fairy silhouettes and flowers and drew in some grass. Stamped the sentiment and finished off with some fairy dust to add sparkle in the form of stickles.

This months theme is Halloween, so if you fancy joining in then pop over !!

Owl Folk

I was very lucky the other week and won not one but two Docrafts Creativity prizes. One was this fab Owl Folk Die Cut and Paper kit !!  the sweet pot didn't come with it, but my brother bought it home from work as he knew I could do something with it and I did......

I turned it into this.......


  A gift tin for Jess !! 

It was Scrap Club today at AMOM and Jess comes with her mum and Nan so I left it on her work space. She couldn't wait to open her "just because" surprise tin with loads of bits and pieces in !!

It gave me so much pleasure to see how happy she was....

12 tags of 2015

I really will be late for my own funeral.......but it will make everyone smile !!  Just got in by the skin of my teeth with my take on Tim`s tag...

This one was hard to photo because of the light catching the acetate butterfly wings...

Loved how my colours turned out as I didn't have any really bright ones. My first  card swipe through them came out very dark, but the second piece of card which is the one I've used is just right. The last swipe is very pale. I'm going to make two cards with the ones I haven't used.

Here's Tim's tag for our inspiration


I adore Tim's tag because of the bright colours which is really me !!   Me thinks I will have too invest in some more alcohol inks......

Hope all you guys had a fab weekend !!  Not sure about mine,  Saturday had a flat tyre on the way to Card Club ,  luckily I can change them myself !!   Then yesterday poor Hugo stood on a wasp and got stung on his paw pad,  he shook for ages but after I gave him a pain killer he slept for a while and was OK !!  Could see me rushing off to the vets again....

Anyhoo time for some more mousey fun at House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge which is Fall/Halloween.

I've done my usual of stamping and colouring in with Spectrum Noir pens. Then made a frame and embossed it to look like wood to go around. papers are by Basic Grey called "Herbs and Homey". Finished off with some orange spotty ribbon bows and my pumpkins !!
