A freebie from Sweet November Stamps and it really is pushing my comfort here, You may not have noticed but I avoid mermaids like the plaque as I really struggle with under water scenes but it is time to bite the bullet and stop been a baby. So I pulled on my big girls pants and went for it, It didn't actually turn out as totally underwater, but is definitely a sea scene


I totally forgot I had got this stamp free last month until the Sweet November Stamps Newsletter dropped into my inbox and I got his months freebie. I think I felt a little intimidated as I am not very confident with under water scenes but I do love how it turned out

magical gnome

This beautiful gnome is having a lovely stroll through the magical forest while drinking her tea. I sure hope her mug keeps her drink warmer than mine did at my sons football match on Sunday Morning 

Be a mermaid

This is Charlie, Sweet November Stamps created Charlie as part of the Self Esteem Blog Hop, Charlie is based on the young lady who inspired the hop. 

Mystical Fairies

So anyone that follows me on Instagram may have seen I have signed up  to the Sandy Allnock enchantment class and after following the first class, she encourages to practice and change up the colours, so I thought this pink and purple forest would be perfect for a fairy 


 We have a tired gnome, she has spent the last few hours sewing the seeds for the harvest and has snuck inside to have five minutes peace with a good book away from Mr gnome

Sweet November Release

So I woke up to a message asking if I would like to guest design for Sweet November Stamps. Of course I said yes!!! There are 4 vault releases and 1 new release. I literally could not decide which image to use so made a card for each one. So as not to bore you I will only blog one but will share the photos of the others.

This is the one I am blogging

Bashful bun


So I can not decide if Peter here is in the bad books and trying to win his lady around with a bunch of carrots, or if if he is trying to romance her, either way she is looking rather bashful about the situation. I am sure you would agree

Jumping in puddles

 This adorable duck was a freebie with the monthly news letter from Sweet November Stamps and I just had to pair him with the Fair-wee April who is also enjoying the rain.

I thought it paired perfectly with the sentiment from the Undercover plushes from Clearly Besotted

Naughty bunny

I absolutely love the idea and the magic of the Easter bunny, as a kid my dad used to hide clues all around the house and he had to follow them and got a little piece of chocolate at each stop, finishing with a big egg in a place he had previously hid a clue. He has continued this on for his grandchildren and despite lockdown last year was no exception, I got up the day before Easter Sunday to a huge bag of chocolate eggs and clues that I had to hide and a zoom code and time. He had coordinated it so that all grandchildren had the same clues and could work together as a team on zoom. It was right at the beginning of lockdown and this quickly set the president for things to come. He retired right at the beginning of lockdown and so his ideas just keep coming.

This year lockdown is starting to ease and we are allowed 2 households to meet. I came home from work to find my dad scurrying around my garden with a note pad, working out clues and where he can hide everything. This year the hunt will be in my garden and my nephews will be here in person to do it with my children. Unfortunately due to the rule of 2 households the great Easter Grandad will be watching via zoom.

I totally digressed there, in todays card this naughty bunny has broken into the Easter harvest and stolen some eggs!! I hope he knows Santa watches all year round


So I made the decision that I would not be doing as many videos as they are so time consuming, I currently try to do one every day but planned to cut down to a few a week. Anyone I had already half recorded this adorable gnome before I even realised I was doing it


Now I have coloured these beauties up I think they are in scrubs. This was not my intention. It was yo be 2 friends putting the world to rights over coffee in a diner. But the colours really make me think these are 2 nurses just finished a long and traumatic night shift and having a debrief over coffee before they attempt to renter civilised life.

Forest Fairy

I honestly can not recommend the Kit and Clowder monthly colouring tutorials enough. I am learning so much and have so much confidence now, I literally can not stop colouring up these little scenes. 

Today Odette the beautiful little fairy is playing in the forest which is full of the joys of spring, she has her lovely bright dress on and is practicing balancing on a log over a babbling brook

Dancing with Fairy

I have so many ideas for the new clear stamps by Sweet November Stamps I literally can not get my ideas down fast enough. 

I needed to make dinner but got so enthralled in my colouring I got lost again and so I had a rebellion of starving dictators on my hands

Saffron Sweet November Stamps

I feel like my colouring has really suffered with not having the daily practice while our building work was going on. The last few scenes I have done I have really had to think about, but thankfully once I started with this one it just flowed like they used to. Just shows I need to colour daily. A perfect excuse

Sweet November Stamps Fennick

I had to have some of the new release from Sweet November Stamps. I mean after all I am a girl with no dragons in her collection...

So todays card is a colouring creation, feels like a little while since I have done one of these. (My posts are not always scheduled in order of creation). My main focus has been trying to get the Craft/Games room painted so it was nice to take a little time for me.

Crafty Christmas Club Jan

So it is January and Christmas feels like a distant memory and the next one feels miles away but I am taking part in the Crafty Christmas Club 2021 Blog Hop meaning once a month, I get to play with my Christmas stamps.

snow man dance

These are adorable snowmen literally melt my heart I love them. One snowman is brushing the snow from the porch while the other one is boogying on in the snow.

Sweet November Reindeer Games Release

So on Tuesday morning I awoke to message from the amazing Amy Young, me a message from Amy Young!!! Asking if I would be a guest designer on her new release at Sweet November Stamps. Of course I would love too.
So I got out of bed, got showered and was on my second mug of coffee when I started to question if it had actually happened or if I had dreamt it and I had to recheck my phone!!

The new release is called Reindeer Games and features Puddin, Snickerdoodle and Figgy. 

My First Card Uses Puddin and he is feeling rather proud of himself as he has just come first place in the annual reindeer dash

There is a video of the colouring of this on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner
