Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge - my favourite Mo make .

Hey my lovelies...
 Just a quick post to wish you a happy festive season, and to share of my favourite makes of the year whilst I have been a DT member over at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge.

This image has got to be one of my favourites for lots of reasons..... not just because I love Kitty Cats, but because it was drawn in memory of our lovely DT sistah  Amanda. Its this time of year that we miss our loved ones more than ever, and its extra special to do something in their memory ...
I did have a tough time choosing from all those fabulous images Mo creates, you should check out what the rest of the DT girls have chosen .....
So , just to wish you a cheery and bright Christmas ,and a happy & healthy new year. Thank you sooo much for being a follower of my blog ,and for all you kind and supportive comments..

My Mum's Craft Shop Inspiration- Pop up box card.

Hello my lovelies... time once again for another inspirational post over at My Mum's Craft Shop..
 Regular visitors to my blog know I am a die hard card maker, occasionally venturing to the dark side to make other items.... 
When I do this, I remember all too well why I only make cards ..haha!
 But, I have seen these pop up cards around blog land so I thought I'd give it a go....

There's a fabulously easy tute by the lovely Joey using her Ultimate Pro here.....
I used the "Cool Days" stamp set from MFT, cut them out and coloured them with my Spectrums.... 
The papers are from Hel's Cuppleditch..."Winter Wonderland", and they are sooo sparkly!
These cute icons are attached to strips of acetate, then attached into the box, then I grabbed snowflake die cuts that are all over my desk at the mo' to decrate. ( my desk looks  like a bomb has gone 
I added a few gems and pearl buttons, and finished with a sentiment from my PC...
I hope you like it.... Its a rare!

My Mum's Craft Shop Inspiration

Helllooooo my lovelies.... I am running behind as usual today, and I expect to do so for the rest of this month!! hahaha! 
But, albeit late, I did manage  a make for my Inspiration over at MMCS..... 

sorry about the rubbish light , but its a pretty grey ol' day here on the East coast!!
 So, my card.....
 The card base is cut from the Dienamics Blueprints 20 set, and the next layer is cut from the next sized die. I cut a circle out of the centre using a trusty  circle die, and added a layer of snowy acetate to the aperture.
 I stamped out one of the bears and the mittens using the "Cool Days" stamp set, and coloured them up with my Spectrums. I fussy cut them out raedy to 3d to the top layer of the card when I've finished the construction.
I added a layer of foam tape to the back of the aperture over the acetate, and filled it with sequins and glitter. then I added a layer of blue snowy cardstock (thats been in my stash forever!) to close the layer. This was attached to the front of the card, adding the final images, and sentiment, and finally gems...  (The fact the contents of the shaker managed to find their way out did not impress me!!!!)
so ,there you have it ... y first shaker card in!!!
