June 26th 2014

Such a cute challenge this week at the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog - "Teddy Bears". I just couldn't resist this gorgeous teddy image from Vera Lane Studio!

I've had my sewing machine out for the past few days so all the cards I have been making had=ve had sewing on them LOL!!!

The little charm I sewed at the teddy's neck says "Made with Love"!!!

A Poodle in Paris....

June 25th 2014

A new image and new challenge at The Sailing Pineapple Blog - theme this week is "Repurpose" - we want to see something recycled on your creation!

My card has a few recycled items - one is the Happy Birthday ribbon which came from some present someone in the family received and I kept it in case LOL! I've also used beads from an old earring and some old lace! Digital papers are from With Wild Abandon- love the pink of course!

The poodle image is one of the new images available at The Sailing Pineapple Etsy Store "Lily" - love this quirky pooch! And a bonus is that the store is having a big sale of 30% off your purchase - WOW!!!!! Don't miss out - check out the blog here for the coupon code.

My Heart Pieces

June 19th 2014

I am a Guest Designer at My Heart Pieces for their current challenge which is "Anything but a Card". So I made this little pillow box and added the Birdhouse image as the tag.

Backing card was printed with digital paper from Gecko Galz & I added some mesh, string and hessian flowers plus a little charm along with the My Heart Pieces image.

New Baby...

June 18th 2014

Time for the new challenge theme at The Sailing Pineapple & this week it's a colour challenge so check out the blog for the palette to use! Here's my card using a new image from the store!

I just love the "knitting" look digital paper I bought from Lagartixa Etsy Store - just perfect for the look I wanted with this baby style image!

Flower Box...

June 13th 2014

My little box creation for the Gecko Galz Cross Promotion this month. As always each month Gecko Galz teams up with another great complimentary company to show how the products work together!

This month our guest company is Optic Illusions - you can find their amazing products at their Etsy Store. For my gift box I have used Gecko Galz digital patterned paper tomake the box and used a great "flower" image from Optic Illusions to make a 3D style flower to decorate the front of the box.

Box template is from Mirkwood Designs - they have some great templates to create with!

Black - White + PINK...

June 12th 2014

Our theme this week at the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog is Black & White plus One Other Colour - of course my other colour just had to be PINK!! our sponsor is Delicious Doodles - don't hey have some great images? Can't wait to see what colour you add to black & white!

A House without a Cat is not a Home....

June 11th 2014

This week's challenge at The Sailing Pineapple Challenge Blog is "Home Sweet Home". If you pop over to the blog there is a perfect freebie image for you to use which I have used on my card "Ashbury Street" and better still why not visit the store and grab one of the new images just added like "Oscar" the Cat which I have also used on my card!

I have 2 cats and although at times they drive me crazy knocking on the door all night to either go out or come in I wouldn't be without them - mind you I have 3 dogs too and wouldn't be without them either - a menagerie at my house  - so I think the sentiment I added is very true!!!

We had some great entries last week so let's see your interpretations of "Home Sweet Home" - we look forward to some creative ideas for this week's theme!

Cat Amongst the Pigeons......

Time again for the weekly challenge theme at The Sailing Pineapple and this week it's as the title of my post suggests - "Animalistic" - so we would love to see your creations using animals, insects, birds - any 'creatures'!!!

I've done a Journal Page and stepped out of my comfort zone a bit and tried something a bit different - here's the amazing Youtube link which I got my 'inspiration' from - I had a ball doing this page - it's not perfect but I did it so I'm pretty happy with the outcome!
