It's a Classic Oldie

Hello Crafty Ones - 
Time for our Trend Week at Just Us Girls
and we are Trending Blending with Nancy as Host.
I have had this stamp for an age and had stamped and
blended it some time ago. It was still sitting waiting to be completed
so it was a perfect opportunity to  do so with this blending trend.
The stamp brand is unknown as I bought it in a set of 2.
I simply added it to a matching coloured background
and brown card stock. 
Finished with a brown brad for the door knob and some
coloured cotton on the side.
Another male card for my small collection.

Hope you will pop over Here and check out what our
July Guest Aileen Ryan and the Team created
and come join in this week.
Hope to see you there.

Live with Passion!

My card is for the current challenge over at
Cardz 4 Galz. It's Challenge #51 and choosing 
the Theme of Butterflies is Babs
Now don't we all just love them?

I'm Lovin' one of my new favourite craft supplies
Nuvo Mousse which I have used here for my 
stenciled background. 
You can see the beautiful shimmer you get above.
This one is called Burnished Bronze.
The stencil is a new one recently purchased at a craft show
called Peacock Feathers and from Hero Arts.
The butterfly is from CUTplorations Flutter Zen 1
inked with TH London Fog with a touch of shimmer.
Card stock is grey. Added a few gems to finish.

Come join us over at Our Blog with your 
Beautiful Butterflies and check out what the Team created.
  Loved to see you there.
Till next time Cherrio from

I'm a Happy Little Christmas Stamper!

Hello there my Crafty Friends
I have some really exciting news for you - 
I have been invited to be on the 
Design Team for Happy Little Stampers.
 I am on the Christmas Team
so you will see Christmas coming monthly from me.
Thanks Kylie for the opportunity to be part of your Amazing Team.

The Christmas Challenge for July at
Happy Little Stampers is

Here is my first card - with lots of die cuts!
I am also excited about this card because I got to
play with new 'stuff'' from my recent Crafty time away.
First of all I HAD to (being a Scot) have the Scottie Dog - 
I have wanted him for ages and when I saw him
 he just jumped right out at me.
He is from Cottage Cutz
Next my Christmas sentiment die is a newbie from Paper Roses.
I love it as it is nice and small - will get lots of use!
Okay - now on to the rest - 
The hills were cut out with stitched dies.
I should have used some glitter paper but I forgot and
sprinkled glitter all over my glued paper cuts then I had to
wait till it dried - you know how it is waiting for paint to dry
well I landed up leaving it overnight.
The trees are also die cut and inked with 
Hero Arts White Pigment Ink
to try and give them a snowy look.
Unfortunately the ink soaked in a bit.
Added some snowflakes which are stamped from
a stamp from the SU Avant Garden on to my blue paper
and because the ink stayed wet for some time 
sprinkled some glitter to them and the trees
(a little hard to see here)
As you can see the hills have been popped.

I hope you will pop over to The Happy Little Stampers Blog
and check out what the Christmas Design Team created
and come join in the fun.
It's never tooooooo early to make those Christmas Cards. 
You know it always comes around all too quickly.
