How cute are these Toread characters? they are stamps from Crafters Companion, with papers printed from the accompanying CD. The 2 images remind me of my little babies! altho...not so little anymore!!!
I just love them, as ive seen so many other crafters also do! these 2 are my ultimate favs, just totally adorable!

Dressing up

Hi all, me again!
Here's a card i made last year, think it was for my niece's birthday?
I love this stamp,  its a kanban one, Jasper Steampunk set, i think these stamps are gorgeous!
Coloured using my spectrum noirs, dont ask me which colours i used now, as ive totally forgotton, but was pretty chuffed how the colouring came out!
Till next time

My new babies!

Not a card i know, but i'd like to introduce you to my new babies! They arrived yesterday and as you can see from the bottom image have made themselves at home! 
I've already fallen totally in love with them and just want to thank Cat Protection in Basildon, fantastic, helpful and total superstars! Unsung heroes who do the most wonderful job looking after all these little waifs n strays, happy ending here with these 2 little beauties!

3 birds...

Hi all, how you doing?
I've found these cards i made too last year, with the Stampin Up bird punch, which i think is pretty cute little punch! 
 The following 2 i was having a 'negative' phase i think so had to try and do negative colour versions, not sure which one i prefer?

Until next time
take care

Crikey! its May already!

Hi all, i'm kind of surprising myself how quick this year is going, its almost quite scary!
Anyway, waffle over... back to the job in hand. Downloads of the month time again!
I wanted to create something bright and flowery as its been so dull and cold out, so with that in mind, these are the designs ive created for Crafters Companion, downloadable papers as always available to download from their website, log in and download away!
Hope you like the cards and they cheer you up? Would love to see your creations made with the printables, so leave me a message and i'll pop over and have a look!

Take care
until next time
