So when I saw the ‘Pretty Kitty’ set I just had to have it. I created a set of 5 cards, each one using a different cat image.


I used Pink Pirouette and Basic Grey card stock. These colour feature in the splatters in the background. I coloured the images using the markers. I stayed with the pink and grey theme but varied the shades of pink markers I used.


I finshied the card with the Smoky Slate Stitched Ribbon. This card could be made in any colour combination. It is such a fun, simple card but I really love the effect.

Well the ‘helpers’ and I are off to create some more cards!!!! Crafting is hard work!!!

Enjoy the next blog!!!



Fairy Celebration – CTC 85

When I was a little girl I just LOVED fairies!!! My bedroom was decorated in a fairy theme and I had fairy birthday parties.

So when I saw the Fairy Celebration Stamp Set I knew I just had to have it (Annual Catalogue page 63).

I took my inspiration from this image……


And created this…….


I used Pool Party, Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral cardstock. The fairy is coloured using the Stampin’ Write Markers with a touch of Wink of Stella added to the wings and flowers. The new Stitched Satin Pool Party Ribbon also features on the card.

I am really pleased with how this card and it was such a lovely reminder of my childhood.
