April Showers bring May Flowers

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :) 

I enjoyed playing with Lolly the other week so much, I wanted to do her again. Actually, truth be told, I'd had two ideas for her and hadn't been able to decide which to do, so, now I've done both! Isn't that little snail just the cutest?! And, I'm having trouble bringing myself to cut the papers on the Smitten Pad. I think it's going to be one of those I need two of. One for using, one for stroking...

Meet Edna

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)

I seriously luuuuuuuuuuuuurve Stamping Bella's Edna. To be fair, I have a pretty major girl crush on all things Stamping Bella, but Edna just says something to me and so, I've been bustin' to have a play with her.

I've put her with a slice of paper from my all time fave paper Pad My Minds Eye Lost & Found 2 Blush. I can hardly bring myself to cut these papers, but Edna was worth it. Tracy is not carrying this paper pad at the moment, but I have listed two very similar, equally gorgeous pads below. In fact, race you there...

Thanks so much for stopping by... Have a great day.

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)

I have such a soft spot for this Tiddly character, Emma. I thought her little heart flowers would go perfectly with this heart paper from the My Favourite Things Lucky Prints Paper Pad. I am getting through this pad at a rate of knots. I am seriously considering buying a second. I luuuuuuuuuurve them soooooo much. Don't you all go rushing off to order them now. Leave one for me...!

Happy Birthday.....

Good Morning! Jane here with some inspiration for you all!
I used one of the stamps from Whimsy Stamps Distressed Backgrounds and Ink Splats set to make these two cards
I used my watercolours to make the background and then stamped with versamark and embossed with white embossing powder....I then did the same with the sentiment onto a piece of vellum and then wrapped the vellum around the card and added that to the final card.
Thanks for popping by!

Ellie Says Merry Everything


Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today... Happy Easter :)

You know, sometimes the oldies are the goodies. We get sooooooo caught up in all the new gorgeousness as it gets released, it's really easy to forget about the old gorgeousnesses. Tiddly Inks Ellie was one of my faves when she was released, and I really fancied digging her out and playing with her. So, that's exactly what I did!

And just because it's nearly Christmas, here's a little extra treat for you...
