Sail Away

Happy Thursday everyone. Hope you are all enjoying nice weather where you are…it’s been really nice here, sunny but not to warm and the children love being out in the garden, especially watching our strawberries grow and ripen.

Enough waffle. It’s my turn to post over at the Whiff of Joy Blog and today’s theme is:

I was inspired by the nautical theme of the Summer Stamp Kit to create a card that looked like a Porthole…I think it worked as Hubby recognised what it was!! Here is my card but for more details and peak at a little extra I made with the scraps please head over to the Whiff of Joy blog

I was proud of myself on this one as I cracked open the Watercolour paints. I haven’t used them for years and apart from using some watercolour pencils a while back I haven’t painted a whole image before…not bad for a first attempt.

Chloe with Ice Cream

Good morning all. I hope everyone has some crafty plans this weekend. I know I’m going to squeeze in some colouring :-)

It’s time for a new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge and this time Shirley has picked a fabulous theme of:

Gingham Paper/Ribbon or Both

Chloe is probably my all time favourite Digi character, so for my card I used Chloe with Ice Cream

I was being a bit of numpty when I made this and nearly missed the challenge criteria! Not becuase I forgot about it but in my head I was thinking gingham is the same as checks when I know it’s not. So having alreeady used checked paper, I managed, luckily, to dig out some gingham ribbon.


  • Image: Chloe with ice Cream from Pink Gem Designs
  • Colouring Medium: ProMarkers
  • DP: Magazine Freebie – Lili of the Valley Bonnets & Bowties
  • Card: Pink Card, Green card and Neenah Solar White Card
  • Stamps: Pink Gem Sentiment
  • Ink: Adirondack ‘Eggplant’ ink pad and Distress Ink ‘Weathered Wood’
  • Dies & Punches: Go Kreate Circle Dies, Creative Expressions Sue Wilson Calabria Die, JoyCrafts 5 Petal Flower Dies, Memory Box Lorelei Outline Die and Fiskars Heart Corcner Punch,
  • Embellishments: Gingham ribbon/seam binding, flat backed pearls and flat backed gems

All Things Sporty

Morning All. Up with the  Larks this morning….someone forgot to tell my children it’s the weekend!! I should have posted yesterday but I spent all day pottering about in the garden and making the most of the weather. I even had my first harvest…one radish and a load of new potatoes :-)

Anyhoo, a new challenge started yesterday at Jellypark and this time our theme is …

All Things Sporty

I have used Footballer to make my Dad a Fathers Day Card.  He’s a Newcastle United fan so I have coloured image to match. Here is my card…

I’m still on the fence as to whether or not I really like this card. Something isn’t quite right but I’m not sure what exactly….never mind my Dad will love it.

Hello All. It’s time for June’s challenge over at Whimsy Stamps and this month our theme is:









Pink - Green


Die Cut







Here is my card using just one of the sweet images from Moon Cookie Gallery’s Just Peachy  set and I used the line Ribbon-Flowers-Sentiment, but it also fits the diagonal line Summer-Die Cut-Sentiment:

MCG Just Peachy (2)

A little bit different for me. I printed the image quite large and with grey lines, so I could colour with the no lines technique.


  • Image: Just Peachy by Moon Cookie Gallery at Whimsy Stamps
  • Colouring Medium: ProMarkers

  • DP: MME ‘Wild Asparagus’ 8x8 paper pad

  • Card: Neenah Solar White Card and grey ad lime card from my stash

  • Stamps: Party Mini Letter Seals from Whimsy Stamps

  • Ink: Archival ‘Jet Black’ inkpad
