So keeping fingers crossed and that I get this post out on time, so far so good, maybe the internet guys have left for the weekend and things will be okay for a couple of days, well at least I am keeping everything crossed..

So we edge a little closer to reveal day at MFT with today sharing creations from Day 4, make sure to head to the blog to check out more creations..

I chose to create with the Big Smile and Smile Maker..

Die cutting the Big Smile several times out of white card stock and adhering each layer together..

I then took Lavender Fields, Wild Wisteria and Grapesicle card stocks, trimming smaller strips of card stocks and adhering onto a white panel..

I added the Big Smile into the centre and added another sentiment from the Smile Maker that I embossed with white embossing powder onto Black Licorice card stock and die cut using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips, adding this under the Big Smile..

I needed a little something extra, so I took the sweet little kitty from the New Best Friends set and coloured with Copics, adding this to the top of the Big Smile and completed the card by scattering sequins..

I will be back with Day 3 tomorrow..

Have a great day!


Hi there, I am so sorry my post is late and that at this stage no links at the bottom, they are doing work in my town with the Internet and I am struggling at all angles to post or do anything on my computer, at this stage I am having to try through my phone which is just as frustrating..

so onto the post, we begin the December Release Countdown and I start you out with the latest from Birdie Brown, Magical Friends..

I chose to colour the image with dragon and girl with my Copics and adding a touch of Polychromos..

I then took a white panel and add some stenciling using the Sunrise Radiating Rays and some Cement Gray ink..

I then added a sentiment to some Black Licorice card stock, embossing the sentiment with white embossing powder, trimming and adding to the card..

whilst embossing I also embossed the speech bubble adding the extra sentiment to this and die cutting..

I added all the elements to the panel, then added some sparkle with a gel pen..

Don’t forget to head to the blog and see all the amazing creations today, bear with me as we go along this week..



Hello there

I am back again today to share the latest Birthday Project with you all, for a chance to play along and possibly win a voucher in store then click, HERE for more details and inspiration to get you started..

This month was all about festive and creating shaker and moving cards..

I chose to create a shaker card by die cutting the HB2U out of a white card panel using the Impact Alphabet and Numbers..

I added some Tropical Teal ink to the base of this card and added some shine using some glitter pen..

I then added my acetate at this back along with the foam tape and then added sequins to match..

Next, I moved onto the images, so taking the Piles of Fun set and colouring up the sweet little mouse that I truly adore with Polychromos along with a balloon from the Birth-Yay set, then die cutting these out and adding to the card..

I completed this card, by stamping another sentiment onto Black Licorice card stock and embossed this sentiment from the Bitty Birthday Wishes..

I hope you have fun creating your movement cards this month and also another birthday card to add to your collection..

Have a fantastic day!



Hi there

It is that time of the week again and we are headed into another sketch challenge, this time we are at 463, to view more about the challenge and how you can participate for a chance to win, just click HERE..

Sticking with the sketch, I chose to die cut into a white panel using a Circle Stax, the inside piece I added distress oxide inks to create a skyline..

I then took Black Licorice card stock and die cut the Little Town of Bethlehem..

Before adhering the little town to the circle feature, I added my panel to a white card base, with the inner section I ran it through the die cutting machine die cutting stars, using the Vertical Starry Night, adding gel pen to add even more stars..

I added my Little Town of Bethlehem and adhered this to the circle..

I completed this card by stamping a sentiment from the Bitty Holiday Wishes at the base of the card and added twine to make it look like it was a hanging ornament..

Don’t forget there is heaps of inspiration from the team to get you started and we look forward in seeing your entries..

I will be back again tomorrow with another creation for you all..

Have a fantastic crafty day!



Hi there

I hope you are all having a great day, there have been horrendous winds here today and not what they need in the fire areas that are at catastrophic conditions, I am thinking of everyone that are and have been effected and thinking of all the fire fighters battling horrendous conditions, may you all stay safe..

So whilst I was away on holidays I spent sometime relaxing colouring some images in and one of those images that I got to play with was Clearly Besotted, Perfect Peonies..

I coloured these Peonies, using my Polychromos and I am loving finding colour combos and learning more about shading with these pencils..

So of course today, I created a card using this pretty flower..I sadly lost my Uncle during last week and I needed to send a card down to my Aunty and well this became the perfect flower to do so..

I also got the chance to play with Laurie Willison and Taylored Expressions latest stencils, these are fantastic Masking Stencils and are a dream to use, so I used one of the Circle ones and added some Grout Gray from MFT using the Blender Brushes from Taylored Expressions..

I then stamped a sentiment from an older set from Clearly Besotted called With Love and added my Peonies and completed the card by adding white enamel dots..

Hoping you all find a bit of inspiration from this card and that you find time to be crafty..

Have a great day!

Hi there

Back today to share the latest sketch challenge and I sure hope you will find some time to play along, to view how to do so please head over HERE..

I decided to pull out the Snow Buddies from the latest release and I never had a chance to colour up throughout the release countdown, so I took one of those cute little girls and coloured her up with some Polychromos..

I then took a white panel and added a piece of Petite Plaid to the top portion of the card..

Next, I took the Stitched Heart Stax and die cut a piece of Sno Cone, adding some stenciling using Card Sized Confetti and Sweet Tooth ink..

I added this along with the little girl and completed this card by stamping a sentiment from the same stamp set and the card was complete..

Enjoy playing along this week..
