Pretty Pastels ...

The prompt over at Papertake weekly is pretty pastels so I seized the opportunity to use this beautiful digital kit by Zoe Pearn at Sweet Shoppe Designs.

Hanglar stamp, lace, ribbon and pearl swirl from Ribbon Girl, digital papers from this kit

Dinosaur Rawr...

I love this little dinosaur from Melissa Bennett's Rawr 2.0 digital kit and he was just calling out to be turned into a shaped card. It's ages since I made a digi shape card but I do love them and this one will make a fab boy card. I added the star from the same kit and the little bone charm just seemed to go perfectly.  I added glossy accents to all the green spots to make them super shiny and then I took him out in the garden to have his photograph taken :)

Bloom and Grow

Goodness me I seem to have forgotten how to blog these days. I've just been so busy with work and some other stuff but I only have 1 week left at the day job then I am on holiday for a whole week and surely things might get caught up with then.

Today it is the new Papertake Weekly challenge and it is sponsored by the Ribbon Girl. The challenge is 'bloom and grow' which fits in really well with the Molly Blooms stamps that the Ribbon Girl sells. This is my card

Lots of Ribbon Girl goodies on this, October Afternoon papers and sweet little flowers from Wild Orchid

Happy Birthday ...

I have a Happy Birthday card to share today and it is my DT card for Papertake Weekly challenge.  I used a Heather Ellis digital stamp, October Afternoon papers, LOTV sentiment stamp and of course lovely ribbons and a spotty button from Ribbon Girl

The challenge is to use punches and I used my favourite Martha Stewart border punch and Stampin Up star and circle punches

News ...

I am back at school now after the Easter holiday and it feels like I have been gone for months because of all the bank holidays we had here in the UK as well as the royal wedding of course. So with being a busy bee trying to get all my school work done I completely forgot to share my news ...

I have joined the Design Team over at Papertake Weekly Challenge!  The lovely Dawny invited me and I took all of about 3 seconds to say yes please. This is my first card for the challenge as a DT member which this week is an 'anything goes' challenge with the option of adding circles.

All of the ribbon, lace, pins, buttons, charms, dewdrops and of course Molly came from the Ribbon Girl shop and I added Stickles glitter to the puddle and water splashes and gave her welly boots a glaze of glossy accents to make them shine. The papers were October Afternoon. I made a coordinating box to keep the card safe as by the time I added all the prettiness on it was quite bulky.

If you love the Molly Blooms stamps you might like to wander over to the Ribbon Girl blog as there is a fabulous giveaway going on over there
