Now what else would this little fellow be saying !!

I just fell in love with Rudis by Just Some Lines  as soon as I found him in their shop !! They have really fantastic images so pop over and have a look !!

I decided to make a Belated Birthday card with matching tag, but Rudis could be saying sorry you are not well or sorry for your pet loss !!

The papers are by Basic Grey called "Kissing Booth" and I have coloured Rudis using promarkers and glazed his eyes with glossy accents. I have also used spellbinders dies and a marianne die to cut circles and swirls and finished off with distressed edges and faux stitching.

I've also added some twine to both my card and tag. On my tag I have decoupaged Rudis to add a bit more interest.

"Stitching"  real or faux is the challenge over at

 This week a few of The Robyn's Fetish DT's were asked if we would like to be GDT members for this challenge.

 Thank you girls for asking me.

Well "Miss Fiussy Cutter" ( now my nickname on The Robyn's Fetrish team) has been at it again !!

I love this Sunflower image by Robyn which you can find HERE. It's just right to decoupage up and so striking when finished !!

The sunflower has been coloured using promarkers and the paper is by  My Minds Eye called " Miss Caroline "  My stitching is faux, but I have hand pricked all the holes round all the layers and then distressed them with a knife. Used a spellbinders die to cut my fancy doily edge and added some twine to finish off.

I had a punching paper pad from Craftworks Cards, which is shades of blue, silver, cream and white which is just right for this job. It was great fun just nattering, punching and making these fab little flowers !!  The "Thank You" stamp is by Stamping Up.

Flying high !!

No thats not me you will be glad to know !! Actually I have never flown in my life, sad but true !!

Not only is a black and white card difficult to photo, but a black and white card that is a different shape is even harder to photo !! Hay ho !!

Yes it's only House Mouse mice flying high !! Aren't they super cute and having fun  !!

I've used a Hero Arts flower stamp and stamped it onto paper from the Bexley Black collection by Docrafts. Now that was fun as on the darker paper I could hardly see the outline, it has alot of layer detailing to it !!  The stalks I hand drew and then edged the card with a black wavy line.

The House Mouse Design stamp set  is called "Feathered Friends"  In the set you get the little mouse hanging from a bird and on his own, so I thought it would be fun to stamp one mouse hanging onto anothers tail !! Hope it gave you a smile !!

Benson Bear

Pop over to the

and see the 3 new Benson Bear digi stamps !!

The DT team just couldn't stop playing with these new digi stamps and have loads of ideas to show you !!

Here are two cards I have made using two of the new designs.

Just print Benson as big as you want and several times so you can decoupage him and his flower as I have. I have also paper piced him and his flower. Then mount him onto a piece of folded card and have the fold on the right and cut round him through all the layers. Make a tag with any greeting you like and attach to base of flower. I used a promarker to add a bit of shading.

Wanted to make a Birthday card for a man for my second card.

 so I chose papers from Basic Greys "Oxford" pad.  Printed my Benson image three times, flipping one of them. Coloured them in with promarkers and fussy cut round each image so I could raise them up on my three matt and layered squares. Paper pleated a piece of card to add to the top of my tarten paper.  Fussy cut four of the little hearts to make the sweet chain on right of card and hand wrote my "Happy Birthday" sentiment.

Why not enter our "Valentines" challenge this week at Crafty Sentiments Designs and you could choose to win the new Bensons !!

So cute !!

What a dreary Friday morning !! Its so dark and wet !! 

What's it like were you are ??

Anyway here's something to make you smile....

Such a cute bunny just enjoying her time in that lovely bubbly bath !!  One of my favourite things to end my day with as well !!

I have always loved House Mouse Design stamps and this bunny is one of them !!  Decided to make a rocker card all in white, but the image is coloured with pastel promarkers.  The base has been embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder and I have made the flowers using  one of Tonic's Petel Pairs punches. The swirls were cut using a Marrianne die. Just had to add abit of sparkle to the bubbles with good old stickles !!
