Cluck Cluck set - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello everyone... time for one of my very occasional posts!

I've been wanting to use this set from DigiStamp Boutique since it was released last month and I've finally managed it...


The fab image and sentiment are from the Cluck Cluck set, which you can find HERE.  Happy chickens... what's not to love?

Not long after we got Chester, we taught him to ring a bell when he needs to go outside... seemed like a good idea... it's very handy most of the time.  It's just that he's a clever wee beastie, and he's realised that when I'm trying to do something, like a bit of colouring, ringing the bell handily gets my attention... which is why I gave up on the patchy sky around this chicken, because he just wouldn't let me finish it properly!!

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)

MFT High Tops - Craft Mojo DT

Hello!  I'm back with one of my occasional posts.  Sorry for the long gaps... the daft thing is I do have a few cards made, but just haven't found the time to blog them!  I'm still not back into regular crafting, but hoping that when my downstairs craft room is built I'll get into a better routine again... although it'll be a few months before that's all done.

Anyway... here's a card using some fab Craft Mojo goodies.


I like making male cards, but teenagers are always a bit more difficult I think... this MFT shoe die is perfect though.  It's quite big, but this card is 6"x8" so it looks smaller here, and works really well with the large sentiment stamp.

And here's an up to date photo of Chester, now 5 months old, enjoying his first visit to the beach in Filey a couple of days ago... we all had such a great time, everything's more fun with a dog :o)  See the red spade in the background?  He wouldn't let Dex dig with it, he kept pinching it and running round in circles with it... little monkey!


Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening!

Cute Pup set - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello everyone... sorry for the long gaps between posting at the moment, I'm just not feeling very creative lately.  Hopefully this will improve soon!

Here's one of this month's cute images from DigiStamp Boutique... there are lots more new ones that you can see HERE - all fab!


Obviously I'm very drawn to all things puppy at the moment, so I couldn't resist using the Cute Pup set... this is one of the new offer sets, and is just £1.25 for a fab selection of images and sentiments!

Thanks for popping in... hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Spring Bently - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello... sorry it's been a while, it's been a truly rubbish week!  Dex was ill, then I was ill, and then our elderly cat Bram decided he'd finally had enough of plodding on, and we had to make that horrible decision at the vets... the house feels so strange without him, and we all spent most of yesterday sobbing!

Onto today's card, using cute Bently bunny from DigiStamp Boutique... you can find this image HERE.


I had a total blank on what to use, so I kept it all white and followed the sketch at Sketch Saturday to keep me on track.

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Yappy Birthday - Craft Mojo DT

Happy Saturday :o)

Here's my DT card for Craft Mojo, which is also doubling up as my entry for Less is More this week.  Their challenge is 'this makes me happy'....


... and here's what makes me happy!  Along with the rest of the family of course :o)  He's very tired in this photo, as we've been for a long walk today... we didn't mean it to be quite so long, but we got a teeny bit lost, all hubby's fault lol.  Chester is 15wks old now, and it feels like we've always had him.


Stitched dies always make me happy too, so I used some of my favourite MFT ones... and I decided not to colour the image for a change, and just added some touches of white Prisma pencil.  Oh, and I quite like punny sentiments too, so I masked the 'h' of 'happy birthday' and added a 'y' from a Paper Smooches alphabet set.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says - anything goes
Papertake Weekly - take your pick (I chose to follow the 'kraft card' challenge)

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening!

Mother's Day set 3 - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello everyone :o)

A flying visit from me, just to pop in with my DT card for DigiStamp Boutique using a pretty flower image from one of the new Mother's Day sets... you can find this one HERE.


I don't know why I bother making shaped cards... I'm so rubbish at taking photos of them I'd be far better off sticking to squares!


The shaped card and numbers were all cut using my Silhouette Cameo machine.  I haven't used it for a while and decided it was about time I had another play.

Right, better go as we're supposed to be at my mum's now... I'll pop back later with a product list.

Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Valentine Bird Collection - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello everyone :o)

Apologies, I don't seem to have posted anything for a while!  I just seem to have very little time at the moment, and I don't really like anything I'm making either... this time of year is generally a bit 'flat' for me so maybe it's just that.  It would have been Harvey's (our middle son) 8th birthday on the 19th, which is generally the most miserable day of the year for me.  I'll pull myself together eventually!

Anyway, here's a card for an order, using an older set from DigiStamp Boutique, which is still one of my favourite sets... I used 2 of the images and flipped one to face the other way.


The images are from the Valentine Bird Collection which you can find HERE.

On a brighter note, I'm really loving getting out for walks with Chester... it's funny, I'd never think to go for a walk in the pouring rain if we didn't have the dog, but I've enjoyed every walk, the weather hasn't bothered me at all.  And so many people stop to chat... everyone's very friendly when you're walking a cute puppy!

Thanks for popping in... hope you're all well, and I'm sorry if I haven't managed to visit you for a while.  Have a lovely evening :o)
