Tree Trimmin Ruby

I hope you all had a good weekend, i seemed to have spend most of it pottering around and not actually achieving anything. Yesterday i made 2 batches of cupcakes as a trial run as it is my daughters 15th birthday on Wednesday and she wants cupcakes prettied up on to the cupcake stand, the first batch was a chocolate cupcake which was way to sweet, i wont be following that recipe again, the second was a lemon cupcake which was delicious and will definitely be doing that one on Wednesday.
Here's another christmas card using the gorgeous Tree Trimmin Ruby, I just love her, i think she will be featuring alot on my christmas cards this year

Waltzing Mouse Stamps

I stumbled across this shop a few weeks ago, some of the projects are fab you can view them in the gallery, you can use some of their stamps with the nestabilities, i just love the Rescue Remedies set, i've used MME papers they are to scrummy for words, they are full of sparkly glitter!

Have a good evening

Autum is on its way..

The leaves on our conker tree are turning a yellow/brownish colour and the conkers are beginning to fall, it is a really pretty season with all of those gorgeouse autumunal colours. It was fairly warm this afternoon so DH and i decided to go on a bike ride, before we went on holiday i was cycling up to 50 miles a week, since we have been back in 3 weeks i have only managed 30 miles, today we managed to cycle 10.7 miles just before the heavens opened, i do hate the rain it plays havoc with my hair sending it into a wavy/curlish mess :)
Here's another Ladybug Crafts ink stamp, this one is Winestool Nikki, i just love these colours together.

I'm still running behind with Shimells class but hope to catch up before the end of the month!!

Have a good evening.

Japanese Magnolia

The weekend at last, it's not to bad here today, a bit breezy but i can see a little bit of blue sky, haven't much planned this weekend, I need to catch up on a few cards, i also feel a little trip coming on to Ikea, i really could do with some nice storage for my craft room.
I have been trying to do Shimelle's Learn Something New class, as usual i am a little behind, but I am hoping to catch up today.
I've had this stamp for a while, she is so cute, coloured in one on my favourtie colour combinations.

Glorious Thursday

I know its been a while since i last blogged, i seemed to have lost my mojo for a while. I hate it when that happens, I couldn't really get into anything, i made the odd customer card but that was about it. I bought loads of new stamps and papers and they just sat on my desk!! My mojo has finally returned and I have made a few cards, I also have some fabulous new stamps in the shop by Ladybug Crafts Ink, they are too scrummy for words!!
We have recently returned from our fab holiday in the South of France, beautiful hot sunny days on the beach with the magnificent views, yummy barbecues and just generally relaxing it was fabulous, then we come back to rain, although today is a beautiful day, lets hope its stays like that for the weekend. Anyway over on Just Magnolia Challenge they have a fab sketch
I just love this Tilda, i have used stickles on her necklace to give her a bit of sparkle. These papers are so scrummy they have lots of gorgeous glitter, they are MME Union Square.
I just love this quote, DH found it in his fortune cookie
"Life is a field of unlimited possibilities"
Isn't that just so true.
