Peek -A-Boo !!

Look Out She's Behind You !! :-)

I made this card to enter the Daisy and Dandelion Challenge, they have this lovely easy sketch to follow, I like em not too diffy & complicated !! The theme on the Daring Cardmakers Challenge is 'Hide and Seek' so little Onion is hiding behind Pickle :-)
I used SU paper, I do love the quality of this, it's gorgeous ! The white shimmery card is gemstones by coredinations.
Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

A Gift From Simon Says Stamp :-)

Inside view

Yesterday I received a lovely set of Simon Says Clear Stamps 'A Wise Owl Once Said' exclusives as a gift from Heidi, Thanks so much Heidi x

I made the card following Dawny's fab sketch on the Papertake Weekly Challenge, I also decorated the inside so it qualifies for the ABC challenge :-) The branch is a stamp by Penny Black, I used stamping up paper and green/brown cardstock. The ribbon was also a gift fron Heidi, it matched the card perfectly I thought, I downloaded the card folder template from The Cutting Cafe'
and made 6 small notelet cards to put in it, I adjusted the sizes to fit :-)

The pen holder was made using an empty coffee whitener container, the text at the top was in the set of clear stamps, around the bottom I stamped 'put the tops back on' Sue made me think of that cos she bought a new stazon pad and left the lid off overnight !! :-)

Think thats all ! Thanks for looking, your comments are appreciated so please leave me one :-)
Also don't forget to enter my blog candy before you leave :-)

Dare U to Digi Stamp Challenge

I only just found this Dare U To Digi challenge on Emma's blog, I was just about to go to bed ! It's midnight here. Anyway as I am on 2 DT's for Digi downloads I just had to enter and I think this weeks challenge closes tomorrow !!! They have a sketch to follow which is a lovely easy one !! Perfect for me !! :-)
I used a Digi download from the Digital Stamp Oasis
This one is called Susie Squirrel in the rain, isn't she lovely :-)I coloured her with copics, 3D'd the flower and added stickles. The Paper is a download from Funky Fairy Papercrafts . I used a little coredinations which I cuttlebugged with the swirls folder and sanded, the ribbon is from my messy drawer and the fabulous prim flower arrived today from the Simon Says Stamp store :-)

Ellie from the Digital Stamp Oasis is looking for people to be on her Challenge DT, go to her blog for further info :-)
