Special Days

I'm dropping in today to show you another creation using a rubber stamp from The Greeting Farm. I really don't know what I was doing before I found these.  I'm glad to report that my collection grows weekly and what treasures they are.


This one is called Miss Anya



I always try and decorate the inside too, that's how you get to use up all those scraps.

Flowers are from Petal Lu.

Gimmie a Hug - Georgie SBS NR

Today has been a crafty day with my little girl.  We were meant to be baking a cake but instead we pulled out our pens.  I'm just going to finish this little post and then we must get on with the cake!

So this little fella is Georgie and he is my final showcase for the January release of little monsters and hipster girls for Simply Betty Stamps.


I've used copic pens to colour and used a lot of my scrap papers to make up the card.  I usually log the colours used but I've put all the pens away before I realised I hadn't done as I was meant too! opps!

Special Wishes - petal lu challange

I'm dropping in today to show you another creation using a rubber stamp from The Greeting Farm.  I'm so in love with these little characters, I find myself at the end of every day trawling through the internet hoping to find the older adorable stamps.  You know it took me almost 2 hours to find the name of this little one, since it is no longer available to purchase as new.  I was lucky to get it as a pre-owned stamp.

This little cutie is from the Hope & Grace collection called Laundry.


Now, I don't consider myself to be a shabby chic crafter but I do really love it!  My husband has recently bought me a Welsh Dresser and he has chic'd it to within an inch of its life, he has also transformed many other pieces of our furniture and now I have inspiration all over the house.  

I was so pleased to have pulled this one off.


I always try and decorate the inside too, that's how you get to use up all those scraps.

Flowers are from Petal Lu.

Copic used to colour the main parts (because I've forgotten the rest!)
