big news

I have wanted some Purple Onion Designs stamps for a long time so was really pleased to find that they were now been stocked here in the UK, however they were sold out when I first attempted so had to wait a little longer but am so glad I finally got some 

T4TD Scene

This months challenge for Time For Tea Designs Challenge Blog is a scene card. This is my niche so I just knew I had to enter. This poor bunny got a little more than he bargained for though when he was asked to hold onto that rope

warm wishes

A nice walk through a mystical woodland for this two. Although they are a winter set they look quite apt in the woods with their warm coats and boots

Tweet friends

This adorable bird from the Stacey Yacula Tweet Friends is seriously trying to impress his lady friend, she does look a little smitten


I took my inspiration for this card from Kit and Clowder March class, in which we coloured a cave, I decided this would make a perfect tree and that would be the perfect home for Mr Foxy

I wanted to make a bouquet of flowers as if Foxy had just collected them on his way home. To do this I roughly cut out a mask, then stamped the flowers from the Sett stamp set

T4TD Swap

I signed up to take part in the Time For Tea Designs Card Swap on Facebook, my recipient has received her card so I can now share

Then I had a big on a mental block on the sort of card I could send and eventually came up with this idea

Howdy Partner

I got this stamp set in a mystery box from a fellow crafter who was destashing. The company are no longer trading but I thought this would make a great desert shaker

Whimsy Stamps

I won a prize on the Teen Self Esteem Hop for Whimsy Stamps. Last time I ordered from America I got stung for customs and it added an extra £28 onto my bill so I decided to go with digital images. This is the first image I coloured up. 
This would have been our garden if we had not realised that Rosie the rabbit was actually Ray the rather rampant stallion!!!

Kindness Hop

 I am participating in the kindness hop on Instragram. I love to send homemade cards as we have no idea what another individual is going through and yet my showing you care may lift someones spirtis in a tough time

Bunny Burrow

This cute little hedgehog is so happy that lockdown is over and he can finally go for dinner at his best friends Miss Bunny. He is gleefully bouncing his way there

Shake Your Tail Feathers

Fancied a change from drawing trees so thought these fabulous birds could do with a lovely garden to relax in. That one on the perch looks like he is quite enjoying the sunshine.

Under the keg

The inspiration for todays card came from lesson 4 of the Sandy Allnock Copic Enchantment class, it is a slimline sun set with a log in the foreground and a forest in the background. I felt these drunks gnomes may not be able to see the sunset but it would create a fab backdrop for them, 

Dino Time

 My nephew turns 3 this month and is dinosaur mad!! So I wanted to create a fun dino card. I do actually fear for long neck here as I can not help that but think that he is about to become Mr Rex's lunch. I did not really think that one through when I stamped them up

Summer vibes

Imagine walking through this beautiful walled garden in the warm sunshine, listening to the birds chirping and the bees buzzing. 
The perfect happy vibes

Card Making Tutorial 

Using the gallery die frame with the patterned paper 

I laid it over a piece of white alcohol card to ensure that my stamps lined up

These were stamped and coloured up

the frames were applied and it was adhered onto a slimline card base. It just did not look right though there was too much white so this was decorated with Nuvo drops

Thank you for reading

Happy Crafting

Blooming Bunnies

So my Instagram account growth has become very stagnant and in an attempt to help drive traffic I have been trying to do reels as well as my usual daily card. The problem that I have is that my cards are done so far in advance that I have no video footage left on my phone to make the reels. So have made a couple of quick cards to facilitate this. Here is one of them


So this is lesson 3 of the Sandy Allnock copic enchantment and I have to be honest and say I have really struggled with this lesson.

Duck Race

We once stayed in a lodge owned by the Forestry Commission and they had a rubber duck race on the river that flowed through the forest. It was great fun, made even more hilarious by the organisers mad Labrador pup which swum down the river with the rubber ducks and every time it caught one it throw it out of the river, onto the shore. The organiser was charging down the bank lobbing them back in. This card made me laugh when I remembered the race
