Freezy Fridays...

The Arty Girlz had me kinda stumped with their challenge this week ~ what are my favourite colours?
The stumpedness only lasted as long as it took me to have a quick peeky through my stash mountain ~ there's a definite orangey/browny/greeny glow to it all... ;)
So here's Matthieu & Arthur, the latest offering from Toodles & Binks, all decked out in my favourite colours...

This little fella reminds me so much of the Little Horror ~ same long old fringe, sprinkling of freckles & cheeky li'l grin. I even have a photo of him somewhere teasing our dog with his bowl, in almost exactly the same pose! Must dig it out :)

Happy Freezy Friday!

Festive Brights...

December's RibbonMad kit is now on sale ~ you know they don't last long so run, ribbon addicts, run!!!!
Here's a little sneaky... ;)

Hey Toodles...

My gorgeous new Toodles & Binks stamps have arrived & I'm so short on time today that I had to choose just one to ink up ~ it just had to be Toodles herself!
I layered up {& glittered!} some Prima's, ribbon, twine & of course a zoom, just to add a little something ~ I didn't want to add too much though, I wanted to show off gorgeous Toodles & her little pal Binks!

There's also a darling sentiment available for this stamp ~ I added it to the inside of my card :)

I'm gonna pop this into this weeks Dutch Dare challenge which is to use 3 flowers ~ challenge details are here :)

That Friday feeling...

Now I'm really hoping that at some point over the weekend I'll get a chance for a serious blog~hop ~ in between freezing my pants off at various Horrors footie matches, of course... {love the programmes they give out these days with *rules for parents* on the back ~ why can't I fight with other kids parents? why can't I swear at the ref?}

Anyway, I digress... ;)

This little cutie is for this weeks Spoon Full of Sugar Blooming Marvellous challenge, lots of lovelies from the DT this week so do go & have a peek :)
I used Di Hickman's gorgeous sketch for this card ~ love it so much I've already made another with it!

Happy Friday!

**The stockings were hung by the chimney with care...

Tilda & Friends are in chrimbo decorating mode ~ wanna come join us?
I made this ATC with scraps left over from the card below {yeah, obviously!} ~ I'm thinking it'll make a cute little matching gift tag, quite possibly for my super girly niece :)
There's a Magnolia stamp waiting for a new home, join in the challenge & it could be yours... ;)

**Couldn't think of any other decorating type quotes ~ any suggestions?

Pink overload...

First up tonight is my ATC for Tilda & Friends. We're soft & fluffy this week ~ all the details are here :) After a hugely annoying incident with some fun-flock, I took the easy option & used some soft & fluffy trim...
I've used lots of lovely bits {including the gorgeous stamp!} from my candy win over at Sue's ~ thank you Sue!

Next up is a card with the very beautiful Celeste ~ isn't she just gorgeous?! And cos she's just so sparkly I'm gonna enter her into this weeks PTW challenge ;)

I made a little matching gift bag too, cos all the best fairies need a pretty bag, right?

There are still some of the Toodles & Binks stamp bundles available at Stamp Galaxy ~ click here to have a peek ;)
