Saturated Canary girl with Staffie

I nipped over to France recently (as you do!) to visit my sister who is out there doing up a gite and enjoying some late sunshine which helps with her RA.  I left this card for her birthday - she has a houseful of animals, in particular three staffies so I  had to use this image from Saturated Canary!
I used one of the largest dies from Marianne set Anja's Oval die set LR0376 and also an embossing folder for the mat underneath the image -  Flowers DF3401. Finally the sunflowers were cut with a Marianne die - Tiny's Sunflower Die - LR0361.  Oh and the fabric roses are also from Marianne Designs - love the denim feel of these.

Hope you like!

Passion for Promarkers - Christmas is coming (in case you hadn't realised!)

We have a lovely theme of Christmas is Coming over at Passion for Promarkers this week, chosen by our fabulous Lisa, so come on, get those Christmas finished!!
I've used the darling Gathering Kindling from Mo's Digital Pencil and coloured her in traditional Christmas colours. adding some distress ink and frantage for that aged look.
The Marianne goodies have been out again too with the  trees and the Happy Christmas Postcard stamp - deets below:

Pine Tree Set - LR0370
Xmas Tree - LR0174
Postcard Stamp - CS0936
The tartan paper is from the Craftwork Cards Chalkboard Christmas pad and the rest of my embellies are from stash.

All I need to do now is send you over to PFP HQ to check out the fab cards of my teamies here.

Mo's Penquin with Gift and a Knittted Penquin!

This was my card for Mo's Dream Team last week but my internet was down for the best part of the week and I hadn't scheduled it to post on my own blog, so here it is!.  This little fella is Penquin with Gift off through the snow to deliver his present!!

My papers are from the Chalkboard set from Craftwork Cards and then I've used the following Marianne Dies including a stunning new tassel die from them which I love:

Christmas Tree - CR1230
Icicle Border - LR0135
Tassel Fringe  Die Set  - LR0391
Winter Wonderland - CR1347

I also knitted the Penquin below recently for DD Holly - my first knitting in years and I rather like him!

Thank goodness my internet is back - obviously - so nice to be back in touch!

November Blog Hop with Mo's Dream Team White plus One!

Hello - it's my turn to choose the theme for this month's blog hop with Mo's Dream Team and I've gone with White plus one other colour - blue is my choice.
I've used one of the fabulous Valerie  images from the Valerie in Winter set which is such great value at $6.75 for three digi images!
As you can see I added some chunky white frantage to enhance the snow effect and some Marianne dies mixed in with a couple from Joy Crafts (Winter and Half doiley) and Memory Box (gloves).  My Marianne Dies are as follows:

Frame - Petra's Birds - Catalogue No LR0351
Star - CR1226

As I am the start of this month's hop, all it leaves me to do is send you on to the blog of my lovely friend, Debby who will be sharing something delightful with you I'm sure.  And don't forget to leave a comment on each of the hop posts as there are a couple of $5 vouchers hidden to spend in Mo's Digital Pencil.
The full order of our hop is below - happy hopping!

 Julie, Debby,  ViliAnnekeGretha,

Marianne Song Stamps

These are just a few simple Christmas cards using a couple of wonderful Marianne Song Lyric Stamps.  I've simply heat embossed the backing panels with some snowflakes stamps and then done the same with the lyric stamps from Marianne Designs.  I've also used a little Marianne snowflake from a Hearts set  - details below:

Winter Wonderland Stamp
White Christmas Stamp
Snowflake die - from Hearts die set - CR1225

I'm so behind with Christmas card makes that I've got to make an awful lot more simple ones! And I've got to post a lot more this year so they need to be simple and flat to keep postage to a minimum!
