Got stamps?

I've been having another little sort out of my stamp drawer...

Being the freaky-weirdo that I am, I have both rubbah and digi versions of a LOT of CC Designs stamps {'k, I admit it - I buy the digi's to play with while waiting for the rubbah to arrive...}.

I'm running out of space though, so a few stamps need new homes - yours for a bargainous £2. each incl postage - I've added pictures here, if there are any you fancy shoot me an email :)

Second to the right and straight on 'til morning...

Can you guess which book li'l Horror and I are currently working our way through?!

As some of you know, I inhale books at about the same speed most suck up oxygen and in this house a LOT of bookmarks are needed - I couldn't resist whipping up this little one :)

Scrummy seam binding and delicious button twine can be found at The Ribbon Girl

The current ABC challenge is M for Magical - it doesn't get much more magical than Never Land ;)

So come with me, where dreams are born, and time is never planned. Just think of happy things, and your heart will fly on wings, forever, in Never Never Land.

Enjoy your day :)

We're Celebrating!

There are only a few days to go until the first ever Pink Petticoat Paper Pack will be in the shops. Quick Cards Made Easy will be available on Tuesday. Although if you're a subscriber, you've probably already got yours, stroked them and LOVE them.

And we're going to celebrate!

Next week, we're holding our first ever Pink Petticoat Blog Hop. It's an Inspiration Blog Hop and to make it extra special, it's a prize-winning Blog Hop too!

Here's what you need to know ...

Liz and the Creative Team have been busy creating for you using the designs from the 'Vintage Rose' Paper Pack. And we hope to inspire you by sharing our ideas with you on our blogs.

Tuesday 1st February and Wednesday 2nd February 2011.

A Limited Edition, Pink Petticoat 'Vintage Rose' Paper Pack. And we each have 2 to give away : )

Starting on Liz's blog on Tuesday at 10am, and again on Wednesday at 10am, simply follow the links to visit each one of our blogs in turn. There will be three links to follow, and three 'somethings' to see on Tuesday and three more links to follow and three more 'somethings' to see on Wednesday.

When you see a 'something' that inspires you, leave a comment to tell us what you LOVE most about the design and you'll automatically be entered into the draw to win a Paper Pack from that designer. If you're inspired by all six designers, then you may leave a comment on every design ... and you'll have more chances
to win.

We will each randomly choose two winners from the comments you leave for us and we will announce our winners on our blogs on Thursday 3rd February. And those lucky winners will receive one of the Paper Packs.

So if you leave a comment on a card, don't forget to pop back to see if you've won!

See you on Tuesday :)

Little star...

 I was having yet another stamp sort-out yesterday when I stumbled upon this little treasure...

Pretty stamps make me happy...

I found some friends of hers that I couldn't resist inking up too - expect a few Gorjuss posts this week :)
Did you let yourself fall back in love lately?
Forgotten Stamps is the theme over at the Crafty Catz too so go rummage right to the bottom of your rubbah pile - I bet there's some treasure in there waiting to be discovered!

The sweetest things...

A simple little card today...

...made with one the fab papers from the latest Pink Petticoat collection - Perfect Papers.
They're so very, very Pink Petticoat - spotty, dotty, flowery, pink deliciousness :)

Enjoy your day,

Dearest Mitchell...

...I just wanted to let you know how glad I am that you're back.
I've missed you.
Well, no - it's not actually you I've missed, it's your oh-so-pretty face.

Should you ever want your own little immortal play-thing a chat, you're more than welcome to bite me give me a call.

Pink & Green with The Ribbon Girls...

This months Ribbon Girl colour challenge is Pink & Green - so pretty, dontcha think?

I've used some gorgeous grosgrain {quite possibly the most perfect green grosgrain}, along with some Girls Paperie and CC Designs.
...all things that make me happy...

This li'l angel also fits in rather nicely with the latest Anyone for Anya Pretty Bows challenge :)

Have a happy-crafty day,

Whoo Hoo!

I have a happy little card to share today - and it feels like there's a LOT to mention about it for something so small!

First up the theme over at CCT is "Out with the old!" - we want you digging through those stash mountains!
I unearthed this TGF stamp set (eeeek! I seem to remember buying this when it was released - I'm ashamed to admit it was still sealed in the packet...), some gorgeous MME Tickled Pink paper (again, still sealed) and I even gave my pencils an airing :)

There are a few new bits of stash on there too, though - the lovely Ribbon Girls very kindly asked me to guest design for them this month and here's my first card :)

You can find this gorgeously stripey twill ribbon, fab spotty button and a whole heap of other yummies over at the Ribbon Girl store.

This week they're sponsoring the Charisma Cardz "Celebrations" challenge - I think with that total look of glee on her face, my card fits!

Hope you're having a great day - thanks for stopping by :)

Hey sweetheart...

I have a little card to share today made with both  Secret Crafter and Papertake's latest challenges in mind...

Oooops, looking at my pictures now, I realise I forgot to add the Papertake Optional Extra to my card - I know I cut and measured some lace so I'm guessing it's still sat on my desk somewhere!

I've used one of the new Pink Petticoat Tiny {sweetheart} Sentiments - these have already gone very high up on my favourites list, they're very, very sweet!
And I must tell you that a new Pink Petticoat competition has just been announced - you can see all the details here

Have a great day, thanks for popping by!

Debbys' Fave Five Cards from 2010...

I had so much fun trawling through pictures for Debbys' Fave Five Chrimbo Cards, I couldn't resist joining in with the Favourite Five of 2010...

Errrrrr, yeah.
That's actually six.
I never was much cop at maths - my mam probably still has the school reports to back me up on that, should anyone want to see them...

Here's wishing y'all a very happy and healthy 2011 - thanks for helping making 2010 absolutely bloggy-tastic ;)
