Bubble over with Joy

I have a line up of bubble-blowing bunnies on my card today.  I bravely decided to attempt no-lines colouring again, but the grey ink I used was a little dark so it's more like semi no-lines.  Oh well!  I'm still rather pleased with how the little critters turned out. I hope you like them too.

Surprise!

Well actually, it's probably not much of a surprise to find me here again,
it is a Squirrel Saturday after all

However, this is a bit more of a surrrrrrrrrrrrrrr-priiii-iiiiise!


So for this party on a card I have used

Have a super scorcher of a weekend, and hopefully some playtime

Rockabilly Girlie

I've been in uber clean and simple mode again with this card, no embellishments at all!  I think my sassy little girlie deserves to be the focus of attention with her cheeky little wink and pose!

Sue's Birthday Wish

Morning all, hope you are ok and ready (in the UK) for another sunny weekend!

It's a birthday celebration today


It's a typical Squirrel CAS card but I think that really suits the fabulous image
and the big sentiment
and because it is CAS there are only a few ingredients


Hug to all

Viking Nancy

Nancy is one of my favourite characters from CC Designs, but she's been given somewhat of a makeover in this reincarnation as a Viking! I've added some grass and a bit of blue sky around her.  I love her confident pose and cheeky grin!  I've kept the card design as clean and simple as they come with a simple typed sentiment, inked border and matted onto a kraft cardbase.

You levelled up!

Hi everyone, it's Kat here!

I'm running a little late with my post today, and it's a special one too, as this is Dr. Hubby's birthday card...and just look at that big number on it!


I bought this stamp set thinking it would be perfect for my nephews...and then realised it was also perfect for my lovely hubby too!

So, this is the two of us gaming together; something we love to do, but don't always manage that often...mostly because I'm too busy crafting!


If you would like more pictures and details on how I created this card, including the lists of Copic colours I used, then please do pop over to visit me at Paper Firefly.

Have a wonderful day!

Puppy with Balloons

I really love Lee Holland's images and I've used the Puppy with Balloons on my card. I usually struggle with balloons, trying to get some transparency to my colouring, but I was quite pleased with how these turned out.  I added some grass and sponged a blue sky around my little puppy.

Totally jawsome!

Hi everyone, it's Kat here!

Normal service has been resumed; I'm back in my usual Friday spot!

Earlier in the week I played with the little fish from the latest MFT release and now I'm back with a bigger fish!


This guy is definitely jawsome but also really rather adorable don't you think?!


If you would like more pictures and details on how I created this card, including the lists of Copic colours and Distress Oxides I used, then please do pop over to visit me at Paper Firefly.

Have a jawsome day!

Unicorns rock!

Hi everyone, it's Kat here!

I hope I'm not confusing you by showing up on a Thursday, and I will be back on my usual day tomorrow as well, but I had an extra card that I couldn't resist sharing with you!


I fully admit that I have a serious unicorn addiction but really, how could I resist these awesome little guys?!


I was loving this stamp set so much that I coloured another one and popped him on a co-ordinating bookmark!


So what do you think...do unicorns rock?!

Me and my Dragon

I've masked a few stamps together to make today's card from the Mama Elephant 'Me and my Dragon' stamp set.  I used a sentiment from the MFT Magical Dragons set to complement it. Dragons are meant to be scary, but this fella reminds me of Toothless from 'How to Train your Dragon'!

Hoppy hoppy joy joy!

Hi everyone, it's Kat here!

I know I don't usually pop up on the blog on a Tuesday but I had a card I just *had* to share with you and couldn't wait until Friday!

I don't know if you remember my volcano card from a few months ago (HERE if you missed it) but I just knew that I'd find more uses for the slider mechanism in it...


...and JUMP!!!...


As soon as I saw the frogs I knew this card had to happen; the slider mechanism is perfect for adding a fun interactive element.

And you know what else is perfect?  My timing, because the volcano die set which includes the slider mechanism is on offer this week - yay!

DISCLAIMER: I promise I actually had no idea it would be on offer this week when I made the card; sometimes these things just happen :-)

If you would like more pictures and info but currently no lists of Copic colours (ahem, I may have misplaced them!), then please do pop over to visit me at Paper Firefly.

Have a joyful day!

Kat xx
