Clouds - Lili of the Valley DT

         Good Morning!
I needed to make a New Baby Girl this week as there had been a birth in the family. I didn't have time to colour up an image along with putting the card together in time to get it in the post, however luckily I came across some Art Sheets that I had by LOTV that featured some ready to coloured images for a baby girl!
You might be thinking that the card looks a bit bare, I needed to keep it fairly simple as I only had a regular postage stamp to use to send it instead of the usual large size. So unfortunately flowers were a no go! lol
The image I've used today is called 'Clouds' and is also available in a digi form.

INGREDIENTS -
LOTV 'Clouds' Full Colour Simply Print (also available as a Digi)
LOTV Baby Sentiment
Magnolia Paper
Doodlebug Sprinkles, Ribbon & Paper Doily

PBSC January Challenge!

     Good Morning!
Okay so I will admit I completely forgot to make a card in time for the start of this month's PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE. However hopefully I can be forgiven by making something for the midway reminder post lol The theme this month is 'Anything Goes or Something New' 

I've played along with the Anything Goes aspect because if anything I did the complete opposite of something new lol I have used an old Penny Black stamp on today's card along with some Basic Grey design paper which I dread to work out how old that actually is lol Due to the detail on the stamped image I decided to keep embellishments to a minimum so that the card didn't become too over the top.

INGREDIENTS -
Penny Black 'Flying Stars' Wooden Stamp
Basic Grey Design Paper
DCWV Embossed White Paper stack
Paper Doily, Ribbon & Enamel Dot

My Favourite Cards of 2021!

 Good Morning!
A little later than planned, today I'm sharing with you my favourite creations from 2021. Admittedly there wasn't as many as there has been in past years to choose from but there's still a few!

You might recognise this first one from my blog banner, the stamp used is an old design by Penny Black and is one of my all time favourites along with using a green colour scheme, also one of my favourites lol

The next two both share a blue colour scheme but are completely different themes ...



Celebrating a birthday I've used this cute design by LOTV on a birthday card, I loved the unusual pairing of pink and aqua.

Moving on later into the year next up is a Halloween Card, I do love making these especially with cute Penny Black stamps.

The last two cards are Christmas themed, of course I couldn't pick some favourites without including a couple of those.


I hope you've enjoyed having a look at my favourite cards for 2021. 
Happy Crafting!

Christmas in the Air

     Good Morning!
Today I'm sharing with you a clean and simple card that I made earlier in the week. I've had these Reindeer embellishments in a drawer for a handful of years and never got round to using them. I wanted them to stand out rather than blend in with other embellishments on a card so decided just to pair them with a sentiment on a 3x3 card blank and nothing else.


INGREDIENTS -
Penny Black Sentiment Stamp
Dovecraft Reindeer Embellishments
