His Love for Ewe

For our challenge this week over at A Spoon Full of Sugar we are asking you to get distressing! This could be tearing, distressed edges or adding an aged effect with chalks or inks.

For my card this week I have used the adorable High Hopes stamp.... His Love for Ewe. I have all the newest release stamps over in my store. My image has been stamped in Memento then coloured with Prisma colour pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. The gorgeous papers are from the luscious new My Minds Eye Signature Christmas stack. I have used my Heidi Swapp distressing tool and also chalked the edges in VersaMagic Jumbo Java. The sentiment was printed direct onto my cardstock from Word. The paper is very textured with sparkles so added a little more with Stickles to my image and also around the frame of the nestabilities. To finish I have added these gorgeous Prima flowers and SU Rhinestone brads.
Sorry this is such a short post but I have a busy day ahead. We are off to Romford Dogs tonight with friends too.... should be fun! I will be back very late tonight to update you on a few changes to my DT at Bunny Zoe's Crafts and also to thank a few peeps for awards I have received over the weekend.

Gary if you read this post..... we miss you already!

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Lots to tell you...

I just wanted to pop on and apologise for my lack of production and also blogging. I promise that once my girls go back to school on 9th September thing will go back to normal ;-) There are lots of changes going on for me right now and Bunny Zoe's Crafts is also keeping me out of trouble. Also my husband will be working away in Germany for most of the next 3 months so we are having family time before he leaves on Tuesday. I am also busy working on something HUGE at the moment which I will be able to tell you about very soon :-)

Now to some great NEWS... I have accepted the position of Head Diva for High Hopes Rubber stamps. There are lots of changes going on at High Hopes right now that you can read about here on our blog. I am so excited about the future for High Hopes and so honored to be part of it! We also welcome a new Diva to our team - Amy Leggate. Do pop on over and visit Amy at her blog... she is one creative lady! For all you ladies out there who are missing our challenges we will all be back soon with our next challenge on Sunday 6th September!

Now on to some sad news in that I will no longer be designing for Pink Cat Studio's or Hanna Stamps. I will still be here to show you a few sneaks for the next Hanna release. By all means it won't be a proper goodbye as I have made so many great friends and will also be stocking both Hanna and Pink Cat stamps in my store... and of course still inking them up to! I just felt that it wasn't fair on me to keep these posts when there are designers out there who can give them the 110% they truly deserve!

Ok, I just wanted to keep you updated. Hope you are enjoying the last few weeks of Summer too.

Monkey's party hat is by High Hopes. My images are coloured with a mixture of Prismacolour pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend and also copic sketch markers.

Andrea's Kitties

We have had a nice relaxing day today and it made a nice change not to be rushing around. I eventually had a little stamping me time :-) Don't get me wrong I love having my girls at home..... but I need to get back into a routine soon.

Well you all know how much I love kitties so could wait to ink up this High Hopes stamp Andrea's Kitties from the newest release... and as my letter beads say.. she is such a cutie! I picked these up recently at Sainsbury's for the bargain price of 29p for 400 letters!!

The papers are a little more muted than I am used to working with but so beautiful. They are from the K&Company Designer pack Classic K Bailey. These little 6x6 pads are a bargain for 36 sheets! I have used pretty blue lace and buttons from the sherbert collection. I am so excited as I have a range of Crochet flowers arriving at Bunny Zoe's Crafts early next week. This beautiful red crochet flower was from a kit I used to purchase. To finish by adding a co-ordinating brad and double daisy spacer.

Going to now continue my lazy day by putting my little one to bed and ordering a dominos pizza washed down with a glass of wine.

Have a great evening!

I had to share all these wonderful creations from my DT team with you. Thank you girls for all your hard work! I have made a card today too but will be sharing this with you on Tuesday.

This precious card is by Mina. I just love this Basis Grey June Bug and the flowers which she cut from the papers. Isn't this image just the cutest! Sweet HG Snuggle by The Greeting Farm reminds me so much of Zoe with her little pink Snuzzles. There is a picture of her with him at the very bottom of my blog. Even at 9 Zoe will cry at bedtime if she can't find him.

This cute frog card was created by Lacey. The image is Bildmalarna's Frolle Frog. I just love Frolle's cute cheeks and little pink belly. The papers Lacey used are K&Co Hopscotch. Lacey also used the Martha Stewart Floral Lace Punch. Again Raffia lace and some added sparkles with stickles.

Wow, look at these pretty colours on Kristine's beautiful card. I love those shimmery flowers! Kristine has used spacer beads in the centre of her flowers and the little charm is ornate heart. The fun image is HH Swinging Shery.

Another precious card from Jacqui using High Hopes Let us adore him. Jacqui used the fabulous sketch over at spoon full this week. Jacqui also used Raffia Lace. Congratulations to dear Jacqui who became a Nanny again on Friday when baby Sienna made her way into the world.

Have a wonderful evening!
