Jaffa Giraffe In Stitches!

Good morning everyone, long time no see again! We were away for a few days at a wedding last week so I am still playing catch up but I am here today with a card for this weeks challenge over at 


and the theme is Stitching Real Or Faux!

Now you all know how I love faux stitching and this gorgeous new image from Pink Gem Designs - Jaffa Giraffe was just perfect!


I used the pre-coloured version of Jaffa but I printed him out a few times and layered him up for some dimension. The papers are from a Hobbycraft paper pad and I created the faux stitching using a Cutter Bee Bug piercing tool and an Inkssentials white opaque pen! I also rounded the corners with an X-Cut corner punch and finished with a banner and a stamped sentiment from my stash.

So get out those sewing machines and piercing tools and come and join us at A Gem Of A Challenge!

An apple a day...!

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well! I have a little card to share with you today which I made a while ago but never got round to blogging! I used an old Pollycraft image which unfortunately is no longer available as they have closed down but she was just perfect for this pre-school teacher thank you card I needed to make!


The apple card blank was made using a Silhouette Cameo file by Lori Whitlock. It was supposed to be a gift card holder but I adapted it to work as a card. I coloured the image with Copics and added a strip of paper from my stash and a stamped sentiment to the tag. I finished off with some card candy!

Blue Rosette!

Morning everyone, I had a play with this week Freshly Made Sketch...
 ...and came up with this using a Layered Rosette Silhouette Cameo cutting file by Lori Whitlock.


I cut out the base of the rosette using vellum to make it more delicate and then simply layered everything else with some pale blue and white card stock. I then added some faux stitching and a Hero arts sentiment to finish.

Thanks for looking!

April Showers!

Morning everyone, hope you have not all melted away with this heatwave, phew! 
It's time for a new challenge at


and this weeks theme is

"Spots & Stripes"

For my take on the theme I have used this Pink Gem Designs fabulous freebie "April Showers"


I coloured him using Copics. I paper pieced his hat and umbrella using some Echo Park papers - Sweet Day. I cut out the wording using my Cameo and then added some faux stitching and a button from my stash to finish!

So now just pop over to A Gem Of A Challenge and join in the fun!

It's Your Birthday!

Hi everyone, hope you are all well! I can't believe how long it has been since I posted anything and I hang my head in shame! 
I have got a rare couple of days off work though so I intend to rectify it starting with this one which I made using this weeks fabulous Freshly Made Sketch



I basically used a combination of shapes made using my Cameo and some Die Cuts by Marianne Designs and Nestabilities along with some scraps of papers. I finished off with Gems, twine and a Craftwork Cards sentiment!

I promise I will be round to catch up with you all later, thanks for looking!

Evening everyone, just popped by quickly to share this card I made using this weeks Freshly Made Sketch


I teamed it up with this gorgeous Lili Of The Valley - Birthday Balloons  stamp which I am ashamed to say I have never inked up until now!


I coloured the image with Copics and simply added a strip of left over paper from my stash and a Craftwork Cards sentiment.
