Seaside fun

Hi hope your having a lovely afternoon!

I got some new stamps from my favourite things and made this shaker card, I thought it would be nice to add two shaker elements to this.


How sweet is that frog ha ha! It took ages to colour them all in but that’s the fun bit right? I definitely need to stock up on some more sequins though….

Have a fab weekend guys see you soon!

Fairy new home

Howdy! Hope you are having a lovely afternoon, I have been trying to do some more crafts recently but I am so behind on my project life album…..

Anyhoo I was going to do some of my album but made a card instead (as you do) so I went bright then extra bright…


I didn’t actually expect the background to be this bright but wowzers! So the only image that would fit this mad background was this utterly adorable stamp by 2cuteink. I coloured her in with copic markers and the background is distress ink. She is certainly bright and colourful think I will have to save this one for a friend who is nutty and colourful ha ha! 

Thanks for stopping by 

Have a fab day!

A few cards 

Hi! Hope your having a nice week, at least it’s Friday!! 

Just popping in with a few cards I made recently 

So I keep going through phases of watercoloring or using makers so I thought it would be nice to use both and I love how the background turned out. Anything bright and colourful is always a winner.


This card was made just using markers and a background stamp, but I love this image thank you Tina if your reading this. 

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!!!

Fun cards

Hi! Thought I would share a couple of cards I made, and it’s my first go making a pop up box card which was great fun to make 

I really love these stamps by my favourite things were so sweet and I loved colouring them too!


These stamps are by lawn fawn and I thought they were just adorable and so much fun, so what better way to make this more fun by adding a pop up box.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

You are awesome

Hi! Hope your having a nice day! 

I made this card today using wplus9 stamps, and I coloured it in with watercoloring. I need to invest in some more flower stamps they seem so popular right now.

Plus my stash of flower stamps is literally these…. 


I wasn’t too sure how this was going to turn out and I nearly gave up but sometimes if you keep going the end result is worth it. I also made an envelope and stamped some flowers on that too.

Thanks for stopping by

Magical card

Hi! Hope your having a good day, I was sat in the office yesterday and I thought about making a bright colourful card. I wanted to use some fun stamps and thought these ones from my favourite things would be great! 


After colouring them I wanted to add a bit more fun so I made a shaker card. You know how much I love shaker cards….

I made the background with some distress ink and added some sequins too, you can never have to many sequins right?

Hope this card makes you smile today!

Howdy! Hope your having a good start to the weekend, it’s been quite hot here in the U.K. which has been lovely. 

Here’s a few cards I made recently 


I have started using my copic markers a bit more, which has been fun. Although I still love using watercoloring too I just really love the bright colours you get with markers. 

Have a lovely weekend!!!
