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

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.
