Kitty Bee Spotlight Post - Super Cute Owl Alert!


I'm here with my spotlight post for the Kitty Bee Designs blog.

This could have been my challenge card for our current "In the Garden Challenge" as I couldn't decide between two cute images - so what else could I do? I coloured them both and made two cards.
 (What's that? You've not linked your card to our challenge yet?  Come on... closes on Friday!  You need the link? Click here!)

I've chosen to use Plant Pot Owl and teamed it up with some lovely purple papers. In fact pretty much every card I've made over the last week has been purple as I bought a new pretty paper stack. Yep poor me I had no paper at all in my house, nope none and had to buy some more!  (OK so that last sentence may be a little fib - but you know where I'm coming from as you were probably behind me in the queue!)

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Stamp and Create - Anything Goes
Paper Nest Dolls - Anything Goes
Bunny Zoe - Summer Colours

Anyway thanks for looking - hope you have a fab day!

Aloha Friday Challenge - In the garden.


I've been so terrible with my blog recently.  I been making wedding invites for a couple of friends which turned out beautiful (even if I l do say so myself!) But as I've been procrastinating over them I've put my normal crafting to one side. 

Happily I've made quite a few cards recently which I've got lined up to show you all.   I've also had a sneaky peek of some fab new images from the fabulous Ruth at Kitty Bee Designs.  I ♥ them and can't find wait to play with them.

This evening I'm sharing my card for our In The Garden challenge at  Kitty Bee Designs.  I've used Peek a Boo Kitty!

My teamies have made some lovely projects so why not stop by check them out and link up while you are there!

Hope you like it - thanks for stopping by!

Kitty Bee Designs - spotlight post!


I'm here with my Kitty Bee Designs Spotlight post - we get to take our pick of the lovely images!

I needed two cards quickly this month (I'm so behind at the minute as I've been making wedding invitations for friends and catching up on Game of Thrones - it's like having a full time job!)

I decided to make two cards the same but different and coloured up two Happy Birthday Kitty Bee images.  You'll have to trust me that these cards were very pretty - but the light in my house was terrible when I took the photo and I couldn't even fix the lighting on my PC.

Anyway thanks for stopping by - don't forget you have an other couple of days to enter our Fairytails / Fantasy Challenge - click here!

Thanks for stopping by!

Aloha Friday Challenges - Fairytales / Fantasy

Hello again!

Another catch up post from me - but it's not as bad as my one earlier, this one is only a day late!

This is the mid-challenge inspiration post for our Fairytale / Fantasy Creatures theme.  This challenge we have Meljen's as a sponsor!

I've chosen to use a Kitty Bee image for my card.  I've made this card for my husband as it's his birthday next week - luckily he has no interest in my blog so I'm safe to post this!

My image is called Ninja Kal-Bee I though he fitted the bill of a fantasy creature quite nicely. I've printed him out a couple of times and layered him up - which you can't really tell in this photo! If you want to own some Kitty Bee cuties - you should stop by the Etsy shop and have a look!

So don't forget to link up your card on the original link here!

Thanks for looking!

Stampin' For the Weekend - Final Challenge Ever .....sob sob


I'm playing catch up today.  I totally forgot to post my SFTW design team post last week!  Better late than never - sorry girls!

It's also Stampin' For the Weekend's last every challenge - the challenge is closing which is such sad news.  So hop on over there and say goodbye to everyone!  It's been really lovely working with everyone!

So here's my final DT card, the theme was everyone's favourite - Anything Goes!

I made this for my friend Lisa!  I'm loving this Gorjuss Stamp at the minute, and it's really fab for paper piecing - especially if you haven't got time to do lots of colouring.  These papers are pretty - I can't remember the name of them, but they are from the new Docrafts / Santoro range - with the girls with the big heads!  If you've seen them you'll know what I mean.

Anyway - I do hope you can join us for our final challenge!

Thanks for looking
