hAnglar Babee comes out to play!

My Mojo is not as it can be at the moment, but try as I might, I still get a card worth a blog post. So here goes!

This is the boy from the hAnglar sTanglar Babee set, one of my favourite sets and the set I've so far used the most. 

Close up

I've used Bearly Mine Papers from the fairly new 'For the Boys' digital set. Fabulous papers for any male card, I went with the simple diamonds and plain blue. Having used Bearly Mine Papers and there being a challenge at the moment called Beautiful Babies, its only right that I enter this into the challenge over there.

I'm also entering this cutie into:
Lovely hAnglar only : Use your favourite stamp
Sketch Saturday : The sketch obviously
Stamping Scrapping : Anything goes

BMD papers from the 'For the Boys' Set which you can purchase here
Image coloured with copics
Papers highlighted with Crackle Paint Picket Fence for that added texture
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment from LOTV which I received in a Christmas Parcel :o)

Simple card for a brain that wont work this late at night. I'm off to bed now as I have to be up early for work. Thank you for stopping by, be sure to leave a comment and I'll fly by and visit you!

Boo and Snookie take on Wild Orchid Crafts!

Well I entered last week as I love using the flowers from WOC, why not again this week. 
The theme is white plus 2 with a twist. I'm hoping adding my little Roses to fill out the bouquet count :o)

This here is Boo and Snookie from the Emerald Faerie collection! I am in love with these wee faeries!
They have been terribly late for a friends birthday card, but what do you expect when you ask a snail to deliver your mail...You can find Boo and Snookie here in Digi format or here in Rubber at Debs Creations (AKA Emerald Faerie Garden).

I've printed them direct onto the white linen card, and coloured with Copics.
The Sentiment is also printed direct. 
Of course the flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and the wee butterflies are left overs from an MS border punch.

Thanks for stopping by

Emerald Faerie Card and some news on an awesome candy...

Hi guys! Well, I have my new keyboard and mouse combo. So I'm just getting used to the key placement as its more compact that my old one. I also got my camera working. I found a replacement battery in the box it came with so I'm happy once again!

I've finished my card, but first before you get to the photo's I want to tell you a little about the image. The faerie is called 'Ally' and she is holding a wee ladybug! I came across this image over on Donna's blog at Bearly Mine Crafts. If your interested in buying her, or any of the others in the collecting head over to the Emerald Faerie Garden which is Debs store, there you will be able to find the Faeries and a whole lot more! They are available in Digital format and also Rubber, so what ever medium you like colouring with, you can be guaranteed to have the images how you want them!

What's also great is that from May 1st there will be a challenge blog, exclusively for these gorgeous Faeries! Check out the blog here and become a follower so you don't miss out.

So my card - forgive the photos. I couldn't find the right light.

A close up

Image: Emerald Faerie Ally, Ticket Stamp from Whimsy
Medium: Copics
Papers: Download from ??? found it on my pc and printed them out.
Embellishments: Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, Ladybug charm from ebay, Butterflies are from MS Punches. Glitter to the wings and the flower are glamour dust/stickles.

I'm entering this card in to the following challenges


Donna at Bearly Mine Crafts is celebrating her third blogaversary. She's celebrating it BIG too with the help of some fabulous sponsors who've been generous in donating their wares for the candy... Check out the MASSIVE 22 CANDIES here. Donna is going to make 22 crafters extremelly happy at the end of April! I dont however, envy the task of having to draw the 22 people out and organise it all. But knowing Donna, she's probably already organised it all, and all she needs are names and addresses :o) Too organised for me! 

So head over to Donna's blog, check out her cards and leave some love. Dont forget to become a follower!

Good Luck!

Happy Easter and Quick Update...

Quick post...

I've not dropped off the face of the earth (quite yet). My keyboard for my computer died and I've been waiting for a new one for a few days. I started to make a card at the weekend and was going to do a post on Monday but I've not managed to get the card completely finished. 

I'm hoping that over the bank holiday weekend I can get it finished properly. My camera has also been on charge for about a week, but as soon as I turn the camera on, it dies.. I think I maybe shopping for a new battery for it this weekend.

Catch you all soon, I hope you all have a fabulous Easter!!

Music Saves My Soul - Her Morning Elegance

I've seen this logo around blog land for a while now, and never really realised what it was all about until I saw Marcea's post in my dashboard today.
 Well, who knew that you crafters are all into your music too. Talented and exceptionally good ears all round!

So I'm sharing a song I like today. I've liked the song for a while, but never seen the video for it. So here it is:
I hope you like it just a fraction of what I do!

Kenny K's Krafty Girlz Challenge...

...this weeks theme is 'Spice it up'

Having not made a card for what seems like an eternity, I went for it. I printed out Rock Chick from the first digital collection released by Kenny K way back last year sometime in July/August. 

Coloured with copics and then I had a nightmare trying to find papers I liked. I managed to find these Basic Grey ones, eventually, after going through lots of boxes and folders under my desk. They are from the 'Lemonade Collection' and one of my favourite collections by BG to date. 

Sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps and can be found here as part of the Amongst the Stars Sentiments. Layered on nestie stars cut with the bug. I made a border star by using two dies at the same time, and then layered them on top of each other. 

Fairly simple card, one that didn't take too long to make and one which will find its way to a cousin of mine who is a minimal is more kinda' girl.

I'm back, but not sure for how long...

I've just found the spring kit from Magnolia under a pile of papers destined for recycling... Had I not been keen on taking the cellophane rappers off the magazines to put the paper bits into recycling, the kit may have made a journey to the recycling plant.

Well, as some of you may have already had your kit, or wanting from the kit, I'm selling most of mine. The only stamps from the kit I'm keeping is the wheelbarrow, the butterflies and the sentiments.
So if anyone is interested and fancies the stamps below, drop me a line at, the stamps are unmounted and cut out, ready for you to do as you will.

Hope to be back soon with a card or two.. Just need to find some hours in the day to be able to sit and make.
