Those Meeces!

Thought I'd add the first 2 House Mouse cards that I've made. I think these stamps are going to be as much of an addiction as I find Penny Black!!

Both images have been coloured with watercolour pencils. Mouse in jam has been heat embossed all over the image with holographic powder.
Mouse in coffee cup sentiment has been highlighted with Clear Sakura.

Thanks for looking peeps, planning on a craft-a-thon of a weekend! Pop back soon to see if I managed it!!

My First Awards!

I've recieved awards off 3 fellow bloggers this week :)
I hope I can get them on here ok!!
I'll pass them on when I work out how to link to another blog :o

The first one is a 'Friends Award' and this was given to me by Helen & Pauline - Thanks girlies - I really appreciate you thinking of me :)

Samantha has also sent me this fab award (wish I knew how to do the linky bit... Worked it out - a week later!!! Will have to get these passed on now!)

Thank you Samantha - I'm touched :)

I've had a few more 'toys' this week, so will be playing as much as possible over the weekend, although my daughter has an Irish Dancing competition on Sunday so there's a day with no crafting :(

'Speak' to you soon,

It's been a week...........

.......since I last posted!
Tut, tut!

Well I hope you all had a fab Valentine's day - loads of flowers and chocolate :)

I'm adding a card I've made this week in the hope that someone can help me with the papers! They were just bits sent to me by a friend and I've no idea what they are (nor does she). They are gorgeous and I would love to get some more - does anyone know what they are?

Added some lace for Tilda to sit on and glossed her hair, dress and shoes.

Will try not to leave it another week before my next post!

Penny Black 18th

I hope the snow is not disrupting your crafting too much!
We've not had much since Tuesday - In fact we've had hardly any :(

I took the opportunity to stay in the warm and make some cards, here's one of them...

Penny Black stamp watercoloured and Liquid Embossed with Anita's 3D Clear Gloss. Papers are from the Papermania, 'Sweet Nothings'. I added a Rainbow Drop for the bubble, a couple of flowers and die-cut swirls.

Must go and get some more Valentine Cards done!

If you like the snow - have fun. If you don't - stay in the warm and craft!

Nappy Cake

Well today has been my first ever 'snow' day!!! Got sent home from work after only an hour. Yipee.......Get some crafting done, I thought!!! Well didn't quite work out like that, although I have stamped a ton of Penny Black images for my supplies :)

I promised yesterday to add one of my Nappy Cakes.

This is a Christening one I did last year for a 6 month old.
I always include a 'Recipe' card with details of everything enclosed - and use nappies and clothes in the next size up as I find babies always have loads of clothes for presents (newborn or older). This way mum can keep it up for a while without fear of the contents not fitting!

Beauty Salon Flyers

Well I thought seeing as I set this blog up to show my crafty creations I best add some! Before Christmas I was asked to make some 'Festive Treats' flyers and 'posters' for a beauty salon.
They wanted white, silver and black with a touch of Christmasy red. They loved them and ended up having about 300 flyers.
They've asked for some of my Nappy Cakes to put on display too! Will add one for you to see tomorrow night.

I've Been Tagged!!!

Only my 2nd day as a blogger and I've been tagged by Suzi - Thanks ;)

I had to upload the 6th pic out of the 6th folder in my pictures and then explain it!!!

As most of the pics in my 'My Pictures' are craft related I opened my Family pics and the 6th folder is of our family holiday last September in Cyprus.
My sister Kirsty came on holiday with us, and the 6th pic was one of her and me in the jacuzzi in our villa (I'm on the right) - I think we put too much bubble bath in tho, the kids had buckets getting the foam from around us as it spilled onto the floor!!!!!
