The Candyfloss Crew - Introducing Bailey

Well I couldn't help getting another little card on here! Like the buses, you don't see one for ages then 2 come along at the same time lol! 

This card shows off another of the fab new digis over at Pollycraft - Bailey who is the newest member of the Candyfloss Crew. There is a great selection of brand new digis over at Pollycraft and it's well worth checking out. There's even a 25% off your order until 15 June - I made sure I stocked up!

I would like to enter this card into this week's Divas by Design Challenge who are tying themselves in knots this week with their theme "Tie a Ribbon".

The lovely soft pastel papers are American Craft's Dear Lizzy "Neapolitan" and this influenced my colouring of Bailey. The ribbon is also from American Crafts and the sentiment, as usual, is from Craftwork Cards. The gems and buttons were in my stash. 

Thanks for visiting and remember to pop over to Pollycraft and Paula's blog for inspiration.

New Pollycraft Images

Good evening - it's been a while! Where does the time go? The evenings recently have gone by very quickly and I've never been one for staying up really late - sometimes I'm not far behind the boys! 

Anyway, that clever Paula over at Pollycraft has been busy with her pencil and created some new digis and they are gorgeous! This little guy here is called Quentin and he is too kool for skool!!!! He is a member of Paula's Candyfloss Crew.

Have coloured Quentin in with promarkers and raised him up on some foam pads. The paper is DCWV "First Grade" and the little buttons are papermania. The Lettering are stickers from American Crafts and the twine/charm were lurking in my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the Creative Inspirations Challenge of Anything Goes (with an option of buttons).

As an added bonus Paula is offering 25% off her digis until 15 June - so get over there now and spend some pennies!

Cupcakes all in a Row

Good evening! I made some cupcakes this afternoon so I thought this card was appropriate (although mine didn't look as nice as these ha ha!). These cute cupcakes are a new digi from the newly re-opened Pollycraft. Paula have been busy drawing some gorgeous new images and this one is one of the digi stripz which I cut down to make this topper. I also 3d-d a couple of them. The papers I think are from a Papermania pad, but I can't be sure as the cover has gone AWOL!

We also had cupcakes to celebrate Hamish's 9th birthday today - can't believe it will be double figures next year! In a couple of weeks time it will be Logan's 7th birthday - who planned it that way lol????

Anyway, thanks for visiting and remember to pop over to Pollycraft to spend some pennies!

Kite Flying

Good evening - it's certainly windy enough here to fly a kite! The boys are watching football on the telly in Gaelic! It's not that they can understand what's being said but apparently it doesn't matter, as long as it's football!

Have made a little card to enter into a couple of challenges. The first is Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge where Anything Goes and a fab sketch over at Sketch Saturday:

This little fella is Jasper and he's one of the fantastic new images at the newly opened Pollycraft. Needed some bright papers for this one so have used Echo Park "A Walk in the Park" which would be a great place to fly a kite! The sentiment is Craftwork Cards and the little rainbow is all glamour dusted (it's a Quickutz diecut). Finished it off with a few buttons.

Have a Fabulous Day ......

Hurrah it's Saturday! It was nice not to get up at the crack of dawn for work today. The boys event managed a bit of lie in (until 7.30 ha ha).

Have found a few challenges that I haven't played in before. The first is the Alphabet Challenge Blog's "G for Glitter and Gems" and Jellypark Challenges which has a theme of "It's a Girly Challenge". Lastly One Stop Craft Challenge is asking you to Add some Glitter. Now in my mind you can't have a girly card without glitter and gems so here is my card:

The little cutie all dressed up is "Fairy Princess" from the newly relaunched Pollycraft store. Paula's got fab new digi stamps on there at a bargain £1.49 - there is even 30% off your first order! What are you waiting for??!! Oh and Paula also has a DT call on for her new store - check out the details here.

The pink papers are from a Grace Taylor pad "Flower Patch" which I think I picked up in the sale at Hobbycraft. The fairy's wings have been glamour dusted and the flowers are have stickled! The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and the ribbon, gems and flowers were in my stash. 

Thanks for visiting!

18 Again (I wish!)

I vaguely remember what it was like to be 18 - I mean 41's not old, right?? I remember when I turned 18 I was given "the key to the house" which is a very old fashioned tradition - not even sure it's something people do these days. I still have my gifts which involved toys with large plastic keys attached lol! It was this thought that inspired today's card:

This cutie patootie is one of the new digi's from the uber-talented Paula over at Pollycraft and is "Scooter's Key". Have teamed him up with DCWV "All About Boys" stack (love the colours in this stack) and some washi tape. The numbers are thickers and I have glossy accented the key. A little card candi finishes it off. 

I would like to enter this card into 2 great challenges this week - Cupcake Craft Challenge has a great sketch and combining it with Cards for Men theme of "Animals". 

Thanks for visiting!

To a Very Special Friend

You know the kind, always up for mischief and a laugh but can be serious and supportive when needed! I am lucky to have a few friends like that - where no topic of conversation is off limits.

So this little card could be sent to such a friend. Have used this week's Sunday Sketch & Stamp sketch:

The papers are MME Stella and Rose "Mabel" which had a cheery range of oranges to work with. The sentiment is Craftwork Cards and the flowers, gems and twine were lurking on my desk. This is another of Pollycraft's new digi stamps - Scooter's Puddles and he is such a cutie - he even has a little froggie friend!

New Home

Sometimes I do wish I had a lovely new home .... then I think of everything I would have to pack up (there are a few cupboards in our house that are no longer opened in case something jumps out!) and I realise I am happy where I am!

The week there is a fab sketch over at Sketch Saturday so I made this little New Home card:

This was a quick card to put together and for once I didn't even use my promarkers, just coloured pencils for a softer, scribbly look! The papers are Crate Paper's "Neighbourhood" and the charm was in my collection. The lovely little image is a new Pollycraft image "Houses All in a Row" a snip at £1.49.

Happy Bank Holiday Monday! Don't really know what we are getting up to today but sometimes it's just nice to mooch about the house.

The papers are from Crate Paper "Neighbourhood Collection" and once again played with washi tape and staples! Although you can't see it in the picture, all the shells have been given the glossy accent treatment!

Just for You

Good afternoon! Hope you've been enjoying your weekend so far. An uneventful day in the White house - shopping completed, the boys went to the family day at the Falkirk Football Stadium and had a nice afternoon. I caught up with some programs I had recorded and of course got a little crafting done!

This card I am entering into this week's Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge:

Now this little guy is Scooter and he is one of the fab new images over at the newly re-opened Pollycraft. This digi is "Scooter's Birdie Buddies" and is a total bargain at £1.49! Paula is currently offer 30% of your first order so it's definitely worth checking it out. The paper is MME "Nostalgia" and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards. The little banner was die cut. 

Thanks for visiting!

Huge Thanks

I love Sundays when they have a holiday Monday attached to them - once I get the weekly shop out of the way the day is my own.  

As promised another Pollycraft make this time using an adorable elephant - and for £1.49  you get the elephant and the sentiment - what a bargain!

The bright coloured paper is from Echo Park's "A Walk in the Park" and I have used washi tape for the first time. There are also a few gems on there as well.

Smile it's your Birthday!

Hello! Welcome to the holiday weekend (here in the UK). Just read on MSN that Monday is meant to be warmer than Menorca but we shall see, ha ha.

As promised another card using one of the fab new Pollycraft images. This one introduces The Party Monster, a total steal at £1.49!

I love the fact that with monsters you can get away with colouring them in colours you wouldn't normally put together. Took my colours from the background papers - Sassafras "Monstrosity" and teamed it up with some ribbon, a thickers number and a Craftwork Card sentiment. It is for a little boy's whose birthday is next week.

Remember to check out Paula's blog for more makes and of course there is a special offer on at the Store at the moment - you really have no excuses not to fill your basket now!!!!!

Woohoo Pollycraft is back!!!!

Isn't it fab news???!!!!

I was sooo excited when Paula announced Pollycraft was coming back - I was privileged to be on the old DT and always loved playing with the fantastic images. Paula is one talented lady and so glad she's back with the most gorgeous new images. The shop has been spruced up and on sale are the gorgeous new images (but not any of the old images).

So without much ado I will be sharing some of the cards I made with the new images over the next few days. This is a fab image for those boy cards - Little Hero - a total bargain at £1.49!

The papers are from Crate Paper "Restoration" which I haven't played with for ages. The sentiment is computer generated and there are a few card candis to finish it off. 

Please do pop over the Pollycraft and check out (and hopefully buy!) those gorgeous new images! Paula will also be showing off some makes from her old DT over the next few days so do check out her blog
