Let's go!

Look! Look!
I got the cute thang back!!!

I teamed up two all time favourites of mine - Skateboard Dude from Stampavie and some oh-so-strokable MME Ooh La La for him papers...*sigh*

This fab li'l fella {I love Gillian Roberts' illustrations - they're so like the Horror's!!!} fits in with 2 challenge theme's - My Time To Craft's "Check it Out" and Stampavie and more's "Anything Goes"
and I used the fab sketch over Simon Says Challenge this week {yeah, I know my rectangle's actually a circle - a little artistic licence please?!} - lots of fab inspiration over on all blogs so do go have a peek :D

I'll catch y'all laters!

Eeeeeek - almost forgot!!!
Have you seen the new Stampavie Christmas images????!!!
Let me know which is your favourite - Dearest Deer has definitely stolen my heart!

B is for...

Heya all :D
I have another bit of whimsical pretty-prettiness to show today - apologies to anyone who came looking for a cute card!

I don't have a whole lot to add about this li'l hanger - lots of my beloved crackle paint and crumpled up twill came out to play, it's sounding like a shabby disaster already!

It does kinda fit in with the Crafty Angels "Shabby Chic" challenge, although yeah, more shabbiness than chicness methinks!

Hope you're having a great day!

All star's...

...no crafty goings on today peeps - we've been holed up warm & dry in the cinema watching Shrek Forever After.
We're now mostly singing away to some Donkey greats and pretending to be the Pied Piper ;D

So I thought I'd share these little photo-cards with you...

These were made with the fab CleoCrafts June kit - the kits sold out pretty quickly, but there are still some of the Mamarazzi bits n pieces available here

Thanks for visiting and your ever fab comments - they're very much appreciated :D

Hope you're having an All Star kinda day!

...the cutesy-card-mojo seems to have gone walkabout today, so I had a li'l play with the pretty-pretty-mojo instead...

...and whipped up a little notebook kinda thing...
{I think it's a 7gypsies book, but I'm not 100% sure!}

...I'm not entirely convinced by it - too pink, too messy lookin'...just too not me perhaps?
Ah well, the fact that it's not a card means I can enter it into this weeks Crafty Catz "Anything but a Card" challenge - there's one thing it's got going for it!

Hope you're enjoying your day!

...I didn't mean to disappear peeps - sorry!
I had the li'l Horror pick two names for the Ribbony RAK's...



if you still want them girls, shoot me an email with your postal addresses and I'll get them on their way to you :D

Happy Saturday!

Ribbon RAK...

It may come as a surprise to the more newbie visitors of my blog to learn that one of my very first DT spots was for an online ribbon store - yeah, me the string fetishist...
I've always adored ribbon, I just don't ever seem to actually use any...
So I've had a sort through the ribbon piles {it was great fun!} and I now have two bundles that I thought I'd pass on to someone who'll actually use them...

There's a soft n' satiny pile:

And a pretty, pretty sheer pile:

Think you can make use of them?
Then leave me a message saying which you'd prefer :D

Oh and don't worry - I still have tonnes left for me to drool over!

Get a head start? You're kidding, right?

...We all know this'll be the only Christmas card I make 'til December...

We're welcoming some new DT members over at CCT this week {as well as celebrating Christmas...}, Hi girls *waves*

Hmmmmm, that's about it from me today {if there are any card details you want to know, feel free to shoot me an email} - when did life get so busy, busy, busy?

Just because...

I have some Sarah Kay sweetness to share today - PTW's "In the Garden" challenge had me itching to get inking one!

Head on over to Dies to Die For if you're in need of a Sarah Kay fix :D

Ooooooh have you seen the Stampavie blog today? The new DT members have been announced! A big welcome to you all from me :D

'Kay that's it from me - thanks for hoppin' along!

Monday, Monday...

I have another quick li'l card to share today - yeah, I know, all my cards are quick! I don't have the patience to spend more than 20minutes on a card - I'm very much the instant gratification type...

Sooooooo, I couldn't resist inking up this cutie-tootie pair when I saw the ABC challenge "You & Me" theme:

Dontcha just love 'em?
They're exactly like the Horror's would be if they weren't Horror's...

Have a great day!

Summer days...

Hey everyone, nothing crafty to show today, just some pretty pictures instead :D

I had a gorgeous li'l parcel arrive from the fabby peeps over at dotcomgiftshop recently.

I'm often asked just how close to the sea we actually live...

...so I hung the pretty, pretty bunting on the {very mucky!} balcony so I could show you.
Really though, why did none of you remind me to wait til the tide was out to take the pictures?!

And look - there's loads of it! At least 25 feet of pretty, pretty buntingness...*sigh again*...

I highly recommend you head on over to the dotcomgiftshop between 7.30 and 9.00 tonight - they've kindly offered free postage during every World Cup match, so I'll see you over there - I need some of these, one of these,
definitely one of these and oooooooooh, how cute are these?!

Cuddle up...

Hey all :D

Another quicky post today - I just wanted to share this little trio of cuties...

Stamps: Cuddle Up, Picket Fence and Sentiments 1 all by Rachelle Anne Miller for Stampavie
Papers: MME So Sophie

While having a bit of a blog mooch {a desperate in-need-of-inspiration kinda thing!}, I noticed the latest Craftalicious challenge is cute - I couldn't resist inking up this stamp, how damn cute are these three??!!

A big thank you for all the Birthday wishes...for those who wondered yes, I am still 23...

Have a great Saturday!

Dear Blog...

...I'm sorry I've neglected you...what can I say other than I'm crap {and let's be honest, you kinda knew that already}?
I promise I'll try my very hardest to be more attentive to you from now on...well, provided Jacob Black doesn't come howling along distracting me...


So anyways, I have a little something to share with you all today...being as it is a *ahem* "special" day for me and all that...

A li'l bit of sweet schtuff for the Anyone for Anya "Anything Goes" challenge :D

Love these Sweet Toooth Critter's from TGF {and eeeeeek!!! DTDF has them in the sale - whoooo-hoooo!}

I'll catch y'all laters - I'm off to eat cake ;D
