Carefree Birthday

Hello again blog friends how are you fine peeps today?. I hope you have had a good week and life has been treating kindly. I have had quite a good week, got a lot of craft stuff done although i have been lacking mojo when it comes to putting a card together, if you know what i mean, i need a sketch or two for inspiration.

The card I’m sharing today came together quite easily for me, that doesn’t happen too often lol. The image is from Dreamerland Crafts and this is Carefree Lifestyle . I adore the chibi images they are always so cute and catch my eye. Whenever i buy stamps i don’t always buy for people I make the cards for, I often buy them because I think the image is so cute, I tell you, the amount of stamps I own just because I think the image is cute and I don’t have the slightest inclination to whom i could give a finished card with the image on, is just utter craziness…lol.


I coloured the image with Copics, the papers are a download from The Pink Petticoat and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I have used a Marianne Doily Die and a Memory Box Chloe die and Whimsy Stamps Butterfly border die.


Copic Used:

Skin: E 000, 00, 11, 21    Hair Tail and Mane: WG 09, 07, 05, 03.

Carousel Horse: WG 06, 03, 00, 0     Dress & Shoes& Bird: B 26, 24, 21.

Saddle: RV  34,  32, 11    Head collar seat trim & pole E 99 , Y 38, 15.

Thats about it from me for today, I will see you fine peeps next week I have a couple of cards to make for a 21st birthday over the weekend.

Take care have a marvellous weekend ….TTFN….Mwah…xoxo

Princess Jasmine.

Hello friends how are you fine folk today? its been lovely weather here for the last couple of days,I manages to get in a 5 mile walk this morning and yesterday, it was nice to get out in the fresh air.

Now the reason for my being here today I have a couple of cards to share with you fine peeps, the first card was a belated birthday card for my hair stylist the digi is from Starz Stampz and this is Princess Jasmine, I coloured her with copics and also polychromo’s i messed up her nose a little which is kind of sad.


This is my hair stylist favourite Disney Princess, i think i need a lot more practice at colouring noses lol I guess practice makes perfect.

Have ba lolly afternoon my friends and I will see you here again tomorrow.

Birthday Balloon

Hello blog friends how are you today, its a glorious sunny day here in Cornwall. Why is it the better the weather the better the mood?.I had to go to work this morning, it was lovely to have a really productive day, my arms are aching little now but it was worth it.

We are off to the cinema this evening to watch The BFG, I cannot wait to see that, when we go to the cinema we book the box seats, so you can have some food too as you watch the movie, its a much more pleasant experience and if you are a little on the tall side you don’t really have to worry about people behind you, not that  I’m that tall I’m only  5’7″.

The card I have to share with you lovely peeps today, I made for my neighbours son he will be turning 1 on the 6th of next month. The image I’ve used is from Mos Digital Pencil as soon as i saw this image i thought that’s perfect, and exactly what i wanted.

He is such cute little dude and i had to make the dungarees denim it was just a must do lol so without further ado…



I coloured him with Copics and deepened he creases with Polychromos, the colours used are as follows

Dungarees & Shoes: B 97, 95, 93, 91     Hair YR 24, Y 30, 21, E 50     Skin E04, 00, 000, 11, 21, Polychromo pencil, sanguine around the air line and eye sockets.

The circles stamped around the outside are a border stamp from Hero Arts, I have had them almost as lone as I’ve been crafting they have to be about 9 years old.

Have a lovely rest of they day friends and i will try to post a card a week seeing as i have 4 weeks holiday coming up it shouldn’t be too difficult, i just run low on mojo sometimes.Or a bad case of crafters block lol………

TTFN…… Mwah…..XOXO

Birthday card for a little star

Hello and good morning! its an exceptionally sunny morning here in Cornwall, the sparrows are singing, its quite relaxing listening to them, the pooches are quiet and after i finished this post I’m going to have a workout on the cross trainer…..

I have a cute little card to share with you today its for my great niece Immy she will be turning 7, I think children today mature a lot faster, she seems much more grown up than i did at her age,  there is a lot more pressure on then academically speaking… so the pressure’s on from an early age…….anyhoo sorry for the digression..lol.

For Immies  card i have used  Whimsy Stamps Its a Party papers  and the matching Enamel Dots the image is from Tiddly inks and its Starry Birthday I coloured her with copic markers and polychromo pencils, my pens weren’t behaving that nicely, the E55 leaked over her hair so i had to remove the over spill of ink , and the E04 and E11 pulled the skin tone off the paper, i think i just needed to properly clean the nibs. so my Polychromo’s came to the rescue lol, I used a decorative square die from Marianne Craftables, Butterfly Joy Crafts Die and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.



Copic colours used.

Hair: E 55, 53, 51, 50, + polychromos

Skin: E 04, 000, 00, 11, 21 + Polychromos

Tee: R 89, 85, 83, 81, + Polychromos

Skirt,Hair bow and Shoes: V 04, 06, 09,+ Polychromos

Balloons: G 00, 0000,01, V 01, 000, 0000, RV, 0000, 00, 11.

Good Evening peeps i have a a commissioned card that i would like to share with you

good folk this evening, I made this for a Sweet 16, I just love this image from Saturated Canary

and its so appropriate for the youth of today, so many of them would be lost without their

Cell Phones.

The image is called Quick Text I found her a little challenging because of all of her gorgeous hair

but i think she turned out okay! So without further ado…….

Bottle Tags and Gob Stoppers

Hello my lovelies and how are you fine folk today?

I have that Friday feeling … its a Bank Holiday Weekend

and i can’t wait.

Are you peeps up to anything or going any where?

It’s also half term so I have the whole week off, so i will hopefully

get lots of crafting done.

On Monday DH and I are off for Puppy cuddles with some 4 Wk

old Alaskan Malamute balls of fluff…. so i can’t wait for that 🙂 x

I wanted to share with you patient peeps a Wine bottle tag and a Milk Carton

I made for some old

fashioned Gob Stopper’s, I found the Gob Stoppers at A Quarter of 

there are all of your old favourites in one place.

SC wine bottle tag 01

The bottle tag is 10 1/ “long and 4 1/2 ” wide for the Rosette I used a Tim Holtz Die

and the sentiment ribbon is a download from The Pink Petticoat,

the image is Saturated Canary’s Wine O Clock I

SC wine bottle tag 03

used this image to match the card i shared earlier this week.

For the box i used a Milk Carton template that i found on the web

GS box 01

for an A4 size card you score at 7, 14, 21,28 cm then whats left is the tab

to stick it all together, then you turn your card and score at 2, 5,10,4 cm

those measurements are from each score. I cut the aperture  using a

Spell Binders Die,  the rosette was made in the same way as the other

the only difference being that i used a tiny peg to attach it to the carton.
