Heya peeps...

...I have few post's scheduled for the next week cos I'm away and not planning on going anywhere a 'puter :) I'm still rather amazed at myself for this tiny bit of organisation!

This was a total "I feel like making something" kinda card - it wasn't for any challenge or a piece of DT work, it was just an "I wanna play card". Hope you likey :)
Have a good half term all, I'll see ya when I get back!

Hey Ruffles...

Yet another speedy post, this time to show you a li'l Stampavie card...

Pretty quick & simple - one li'l Ruffles stamp, a few PROMarkers, some MME scraps, some ribbon and a handful of buttons - easy peasy! (Ruffles can be found here at Dies to Die For)

Do go check out the latest Stampavie challenge - I've been tidying up all my pics on my 'puter and can't actually find the card I made for the challenge, I'll add it asap! There's a fab secret prize on offer for someone lucky :)

'Cos I've got High Hopes... really, I have, loads of 'em - thanks Tracy ;)

So here's a rather delish High Hopes/MME combo...I'm liking it peeps :) Every time I ink up an HH stamp I fall in love with them, they really are just perfect. It's quite possible you'll be seeing a few of them in the not too distant future! (I'm obsessive, remember...)

Stuff used:
High Hopes
Party Hippo
MME Oh La La papers -
this one & this one
Bazzil cardstock
Martha Stewart punch
Melissa Frances rub-on, button & thread.

This months card kit from Cleo Crafts is utterly scrumptious - full of Sassafras and felt blooms (there's loadsa other schtuff too, these were just my fave bits!).

It's on sale only costs a tenner (seriously now, I think I spend that much on sticky stuff each week) has downloadable instructions written by me and this lovely (you know mine are gonna have bits of unrelated randomness in there somewhere) can get it here :)

It's release day over at All That Scraps :)

Now usually by this point every month, I'm wetting my pants with excitement and trying to tell myself that I don't need to buy all the stamps as digi's while waiting for the rubbah to arrive...yeah, I do actually do that.

As I have shouted out already though, my inky mitts have already got to the stamps, so I want all of you to go get excited on my behalf :)

Oh and if you have more patience than me and can wait a li'l while - Tracy'll have the new releases in stock asap - yay!!!!

It's like I died and went straight to Pixie Heaven...

...Honestly peeps, can you even imagine how much it's killed me to keep this quiet? {Eeeeek, don't look at the photo - I'm not really that wrinkly across the forehead region. Honest.}

So yeah, the Guest Designer for CC Designs this month is me! Sorry, don't think I shouted that quite loud enough - me!!!!!! I feel I must explain to any newbies reading - this is seriously big for me. I've been completely and utterly obsessed with these stamps for some time. When I say completely and utterly obsessed that's actually putting it lightly... ;)

I'm away to sniff some ink and stroke some {not yet released!} rubbah, while doing a happy dance - Happy Thursday all!

Oh, and the stamps? Of course they're gorgeous!
