Blue Moon!

Haha! bet you're singing that now, aren't you?

Bluuuuue Moooon,
you saw me standing alone,
without a dream in my heart,
without a love of my own,

You must definitely be singing it by now LOL!

and after all that my card for today has absolutely nothing to do with the song hehe!

I wanted to remind you that the Paper Creator challenge is about half way through, so still plenty of time to get your entry in, for my first card on the 1st I used the Little pink mouse on the moon ultimate kit, so for my reminder I thought why not go with the Little blue mouse on the moon kit, there's definitely blue and moon in there, so the blog post title did have a little relevance 😀

Happy New Year!

Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas!

As it's the first of the month it's time for a new challenge over at Paper Creator, and to gently ease us into the New year it's the super simple theme of


The winner will receive a £10 store credit to spend in the Paper Creator store.
Paper Creator products are not essential, but you will gain an extra entry into the random draw if using them. The challenge runs for the whole of the month and the winner is announced at the start of the next month's challenge.

As the New Year is a time for new beginnings I thought I would make a new baby card, using the gorgeous Pink Little Mouse on the Moon ultimate kit, which is on sale at the moment for only £1, the kit contains everything you need to make a variety of cards using the cute image. Here's what I came up with...


Pink Little Mouse on the Moon ultimate kit - Paper Creator
Nesting doily circles die set - We R Memory Keepers
Crafts too- Swirly
Tonic geared border punch - dotty border
ribbon and pearls - Meiflower

HoHoHo! Merry Christmas!

It's time for the final challenge of the year over at the Paper Shelter, as we are off on our Christmas break for the next three weeks, and because everyone will be busy shopping, cooking and celebrating, the challenge theme couldn't be anything other than the super easy...


There are great prizes up for grabs! If you are our randomly selected winner and play with a TPS image then you have a chance of winning a $30 gift certificate, any other image and you will win three digis of your choice.

To find my winner of the birthday blog hop Paper Shelter image, I asked my grandson Will to pick a number between 1 and 22 (the amount of comments that were left), he chose...
 number 11
I counted down the names until I reached 11 to find the winners name

I decided to do something different for this challenge and made a Christmas decoration instead of the usual card. I found an 8 inch square canvas box frame amongst my craft stuff, so I gave it a coat of red paint and then decorated it up with digital papers,topped it off with the fabulous Santa Family Selfie pre-coloured image from The Paper Shelter and added some lights by making holes around the image and pushing a set of LED lights through from the back.

TA DAH!!!

Happy!

Papercraft Essentials 141 is on the shelves today and I was commissioned to make half a dozen cards using a gorgeous Nitwits Collection called Happy. It has absolutely nothing to do with Christmas but is all about pretty pinks and flowers.

Here are a few of the cards I made for the magazine.
Although the photos don't show it very well all the images on the cards are decoupaged and finished off with gems and glitter.





Check out the magazine for lots of fabulous inspiration and a brilliant free gift containing number dies and birthday sentiment stamps.

Happy Feetzies

We are halfway through the month, already! the days are just flying by, so time for a quick reminder that we are also halfway through the Paper Creator Christmas challenge, I wanted to share a quick card I made using one of the fabulous Sassy Cheryl illustrations from the store. I just had to use this image because I love penguins and these three are really cute.
