I love this fun Stamp set from Heffy Doodles and already know the recipient, we all have that one person who has our backs regardless of the situation.
This is my first attempt at using brushes instead of foam pads for my ink and I have to be honest and say I agree with all the hype. Just wow it was so effortless

Interactive Christmas

This stamp and die set from Time for Tea Designs is so fun, with the naughty fury friends trashing the tree. We use to have a beagle, she was the most beautiful dog I have ever come across, but was totally bonkers and so so naughty I could tell you many tales. Including how she learnt to open the grill door so she could use it as step to climb onto the work surfaces and ate an entire slow cooker full of lamb stew...Christmas with Indiana was a nightmare she was THIS dog. We use to put bells on the bottom of the tree so they acted like an early warning system and alerted us to her mischief before too much damage was caused. Even as a tiny puppy at Christmas last year Hamish our Jack Russel did not have the interest in the tree that Indie never grew out of



When we visit a special place I buy a bauble as I love putting the tree up and it reminding me of the trip.  We can be like 'oh do you remember that trip to...'  Well my inspiration for this card came from Indie, on one particul…

Card Making Tutorial
Using the dies from the set I cut the intricate wreath in Kraft card and the backing in acatate 


Using the pink card I scored the short edge at 1/2 Inch. With the other piece I cut 2 strips one measuring 1/2 Inch and one measuring 2 Inch.

These were glued together to form the card base. The green patterned paper was trimmed to fit inside the card

The stamped images were coloured and glued onto the wreath. The top panel was decorated with the tiny wooden buttons 

The sentiment was heat embossed onto the lower pa…

Beauty Sleep

My little girl Martha is mad about the trolls we have the sing along DVD and have to endure it quite often so when I saw this stamp set I just had to have it.
I tried to create it so that the troll was the burst of colour and I am not too sure with how the sentiment ended up. I think if I was to recreate this card I would put the sentiment on a banner. I don't dislike it, just don't love it either
