Please Take Me Home





I really like how this one turned out, I was thinking of the rhyme "How much is that Doggie in the Window" when I saw this stamp and thought I would try to create a store front. With some coordinating card and dog bone ribbon I managed to create a store window. The dogs spots, nose and ear are glazed as is the basket of flowers. The sentiment reads "FRIENDS FOR LIFE". This one and the one below will be on my auctions in the next couple of weeks. I will be unable to post for the next couple of weeks, so watch out for these great cards coming soon!!

Summer Days





Great paper pieced card. Used DCWV kids paper stacks for multiple layers. Made corner tags out of coordinating paper. Glazed girls hat and added beads, flowers, brads, stickles and foam hearts for embellishments. Added little ladybugs to inside and hand drew their antennas.

Out of my Window

OK, Here I am happily sewing away at my desk and I got the sensation something was watching me. I looked up out my window and this is what I saw!!








Everyone knows that I am terrified of snakes, so I am screaming to my husband. He then proceeds to tell me that it is not poisonous, like that makes everything OK? Anyway hope the pics don't give you nightmares, but if I get a shock then everyone else has to as well.

Precious Moments - Little Boy


I just adore these precious moments stamps. My daughter used to collect the dolls and has quite a collection. Anyway she saw this and I think I will have to make one for her. DCWV butterflies mat stack was used. I stitched the background using a kite and swirl design. Glittered embossed and embellishments. Lovely pastel colors. What do you think? Cute or what.

Penny Black - Bubbly Dog Moving Head




Found out how to make things rotate within cards. This is so fun. The dogs little head move in a complete circle and stays where you want it to. He looks so cute it's so funny. Anyway used the new pet card from DCWV. More new stitches added. The border stitch reminds me of a blanket for a dog. Hand colored dog which is from the Penny Black range of acrylic stamps.

This is such a fun card, so bright and cheerful, just looking at it makes me smile. I love the little chickens, which I hand stamped, colored and glittered. New stitches used on card. Embossed with Cuttle Bug and added embellishments. OK gotta go and embroider something!!
Have a great evening.

Peek a Boo Jungle Monkey (Chantigo)




OK, time to confess, I changed out the machine I got the other day for a different kind. Have been going mad embroidering anything I can get my hands on!! Will maybe try to embroider some cards soon. Anyway another Chantigo monkey, great coordinating paper on this one, gives it a real jungle safari feel. Big 3D pop out and really great different stitching. Buttons, ribbons and scallops galore.

Pretty in Pink




New inkadinkado stamps. Very pink, and some reds. Hand stitched layers. Looped some ribbon through what I think is a picture hanger. Stamped some hearts and heat embossed with holographic embossing powder. Oh my there is glitter everywhere!! and I don't just mean on the card. Did the same with the dress. Anyway the results are great, they really shine and glow under the light, my pics don't show it well though. I also inked and water colored the background that the dress is on. Made two more hearts for the inside. Let me know what you think?

Butterfly Blues




Great card which I think would look great framed. Stamped butterflies on printed paper and glazed them. Added some eyelets and made a little bouquet out of pearls and tied with spotted ribbon. DCWV card and Bazzill used for backgrounds. Made coordinating envelope and hand stamped and glittered the pretty swirls.

Spoil Yourself Silly




OK, finally got a new sewing machine yesterday, just fabulous compared to my old worn out machine. Makes my old one look like an antique, anyway once I figured out how to sew with it!! I came up with this. Great bright colors and stamped using Penny Black, I like the little cat that peeks out from the inside of the card. Hope you do too. Have a great day, must go and play with my new machine!!

Spot the Dog




Fun, fun and fun. I wasn't sure what to do with this one to start with. Used DCWV card as the background. Drew out a bone in Illustrator and cut out it on Bazzill. Wound some cream ribbon around the middle of the bone and hand stitched. Stamped the dogs (SIX times), stamp by Inkadinkado, and colored with Acid Free high quality pens. Cut out their heads and popped them on their bodies, then glazed the heads. Drew a fence for the two to peak out over and then added some ribbons and a small glittered bone. Stamped the inside with bones and dog again. Made matching envelope with bone liner and dog stamped on front. I just love this, it looks so cute.
