Superheroes to the rescue!

I love a bit of stamping - even when I'm dizzy! These Hunkydory superheroes are just the perfect addition to a pop up box :-)
I've teamed the stamps up with some super bright Craftwork Cards papers (Celebration kit I think).
Hope you had a fabulous Easter weekend. Thanks for stopping by, hugs, Jayne xxx

Hyacinth Sprite

We're moving into the last days of Squirrel's Spring Fever challenge. This Aurora Wings 'Hyacinth Sprite' is perfect for the challenge.
Oh my, I love her soooooo much!  How pretty is that 'hair'?

I've spent the weekend happily stamping and colouring. A trip to the cinema set off a really horrid bout of dizziness so I'm taking things a bit easier and doing small bursts of activity - I'm not a fan of constant nausea - it's like being pregnant!


You still have 12 days to join us :-) Hugs, Jayne xx

First prismacolor pencil class

Ooooh, I've had a naughty week of slacking with the housework whilst I finish my first Kit and Clowder pencil class. In my defence I'm using it for my Mother-in-Laws Mother's Day card so I did need to finish it!!
It's the second thing I've attempted with the pencils and I really feel like i'm getting the hang of them. Can't believe I've avoided them for so long.

I highly recommend the classes at Kit and Clowder. My copics and Prismacolor pencils cost a fortune and I'm determined to get the most out of them :-)

Sorry I haven't visited anyone in blogland for an age - life has been crazy the last few months but I'm making changes. I'm a girl with a plan. Be scared!!! Hugs xxxxxx

LOTV sneak peek!

I'm back with the another stamp from the wedding trio due out 28th February.
Again, I've used the Romance and Roses papers from NitWit Collections.
These stamps are just lovely and I can't wait to treat myself to some of the other trios ;-) xxx

Retro Cars

Super fast card today using the retro cars ribbon from Crafty Ribbons as toppers. I used an Inkylicious script stamp for the background and it was job done :-)

Thank you for visiting xxxx

LOTV sneak peek!

These images are perfect with the Romance and Roses papers from NitWit Collections :-)
Ahhh, just super cute :-) xx

Finally finished :-)

I finally finished my January Kit and Clowder colouring class - I feel like I've been colouring forever! So glad I kept going back to it and I did learn a lot - I've never used blending solution on a background before :-)
I'm going to look for an LOTV fairy that I can use this technique with.

I'm still coughing and spluttering and driving myself nuts! I'm staying away from housework too - it's seriously bad for my health. Whilst trying to extricate the ironing board from the under stairs cupboard the vacuum fell over and hit me on the head and then when I started ironing I ran over my finger with the iron. See, it's really too dangerous! I'm off to make a cuppa and do some colouring xxx

Love is . . . .

This month our theme for the LOTV facebook challenge is love :-) I love nothing more than my crazy girls so I chose to make a new baby card using this super cute image (cosy pram).
I even used my new Polkadoodles paper pad!
I've spent days prepping for my craft class next Sunday. I still haven't finished and am beginning to wonder whether I've lost my mind completely!!!! I shall soldier on tomorrow :-)

Hope you have a great week, hugs Jayne xx

Playing with the lllustrator pens :-)

Today I've got this super cutie from Polkadoodles teamed up with NitWit papers. I coloured her up with the Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens (skin - RB1, FS7, FS8, FS9, PP1. Dress - BT5, AB1, AB3. Hair EB7, GB9, EB2)

I've still got this rotten cold - it doesn't seem to be going anywhere!!! The window cleaner informed me that it's 'going round'!!
Hope that you're having a fab week. Hugs, Jayne xx

Lili of the Valley new release!

Whoopeeeeeee! I found the link to the fold my lovelies :-) http://jenniferds.blogspot.co.uk/2016/08/tutorial-thursday-exploding-card.html

This is one of the soon to be released stamps/digis from Lili of the Valley (released 28th January - whoopeeeee!)
Such a beautiful, elegant image :-)

Loving this new fold. I bookmarked the page with the instructions but now I've lost it! I think I found it on a blog by a lady called Jennifer but I'm hazy on the detail - as you are when you get giddy!!!!

I promise not to embark on a 'death by photo' post!!

Right, that's me. I really am going to try and be a better blogger. Sigh. Thank you for visiting me. Hugs, Jayne xx

Perfect Pair

Aww, this image is just tooooo cute! It's one from Stampingbella and it was given to me by my friend Annette :-) It's also the first thing I coloured with my Illustrator pens many months ago.
I've used the Perfect Pear papers from NitWit Collections and the 15mm pink/white check ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.

Golly, it's been such a busy week and I have a crazy weekend of playdates and classes :-) Plus I have to attack my daughters clothes with every stain remover known to man as every day she has returned from preschool wearing several layers of paint!!!! Have a great weekend, Jayne xxx

New Ribbon!

There is a beautiful new range of ribbon over at Crafty Ribbons called 'Stitches'. It's super stylish and ideal for a monochrome card.
I love a super quick card :-) I've used some Craftwork Cards papers and Anna Marie Designs stamps. Job done!

Hope you're having a fabulous week. I fell off the diet wagon yesterday - but I've been doing well so I'll just start again :-)

Hugs, Jayne

Fanciful Fuchsias


I made this sample using the Fanciful Fuchsia stamps and Illustrator pens from Crafters Companion. Jeepers - these little critters were a trial to put together! Once I'd consulted the fountain of wisdom that is youtube the construction of the fuchsias became clearer but still a tad tricky.

 It's not my usual style but I was super chuffed with myself when I'd finished!!

Hope you're having a great week. Hugs, Jayne x

Starting school!

This is a bit brighter than my usual offerings but I needed to make a card using this fab pencil ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.
I tried to keep the embellishments to a minimum because the papers and ribbon were quite busy!!

I love this digi from Lili of the Valley - can't believe that my little girl will start school this year!!
Thank you for stopping by. I really appreciate it! Jayne xx

April Fairy

I am such a bad blogger. This is my first post this year - shocking!! In my defence I've been poorly and the last few weeks have sucked! Making this card, however, cheered me up! I've used the super cute Lili of the Valley 'April Fairy' together with a raindrop stencil and some clear embossing paste :-)
There's nothing like splashing in puddles with your wellie bobs on!!!!
Hope you've had a great start to the year. Sending hugs, Jayne xx
