A Gift Bag With A Difference



















Hello, it's Monday again, it comes round so quickly. I hope you’re all OK and have had a lovely weekend.
This is a double post for House Mouse and Prickley Pear
So here's a reminder for the theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, this time it was our lovely Lorraine's turn to choose the theme and she chose "Anything Goes." - So you can make anything, using anything, as long as you use a House MouseHappy Hopper or Gruffie to join in.  I made another gift bag but with a difference, I thought this would be a nice little gift for someone who is suffering with a cold and a sore throat, there's some throat lozengers, tissues, vapour rub and cold and flu powders.  Maybe not an exciting gift to give but it might help them to recovery.  Here's a closer look.






















I used this great image HMJR1055 Birdie Doctor, teamed with one of the paper pads from LOTV, Baskets & Bunnies.  I love altering paper gift bags, and homemade ones make the gift seem that bit more personal.

I Love My Dies






















Hello and welcome, it's a new month for Stamping Sensations and Penny black & More @ Allsorts challenges, if you didn't get the chance to join in last month's challenge this could be the one for you.

At Stamping Sensations this month the theme is 'Summer Blooms',  I chose this lovely LOTV stamp, she's blowing dandelions, then to keep the summer bloom theme I used floral papers and added handmade flowers cut with dies.  I'm not usually one for blue but I do like this colour combo, the cream seems to warm the blue up a bit.

We have sponsorship this Month from

And of course, the Design Team have created some stunners to inspire you. Please do pay them a visit to their individual blogs - it means a lot to know you appreciate their efforts.























And now onto my second challenge creation for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is 'Dies & Punches', So you can use whatever image you like for this challenge.   I used this cute Penny Black stamp, always reminds me of my sister and I together.  I coloured my image to match these gorgeous papers from LOTV, they are called Antebellum, I used my Spectrum Noirs, my collection is coming on a treat now, each pay day my hubby buys me more and keeps making my storage boxes for them too.  When my collection is complete I will pop some photo's on.  But I really can see a difference with my colouring, I love them.

We have prizes from Penny Black, Craft Bag, Flonz, Nicecrane,Marianne designs. Now isn't that a lot of prizes, definitely worth getting your stamps out isn't it!!!!!!

Baby Fairies
























Good Morning bloggers, it's Saturday morning so It's time for a new challenge today at Allsorts.
This week is our lovely Susan's turn to host and she would like to see 'Fairies'
Here is what I did, I used one of our sponsors images, It's Adorable Fairies from Nicecrane designs, which you can find here
Adorable Fairies

I framed my image using a spellbinders die, but it was too big so I cut a section out from the middle and pieced it back together.  I love these papers, of course they are LOTV, it's all I seem to use now is LOTV papers, I have most of their pads, I just really love the vintage look of them.  I have glittered the fairy wings, but as you know I'm rubbish at taking the photo's, so you probably won't be able to see.


Don't forget to head over to Allsorts for all the details of this challenge, and to check out all the fabulous inspiration from my very talented team mates.

Here are the prizes on offer:-

One lucky winner will receive $20 to spend online

Here Kitty!!!


Good Morning bloggers, it's Saturday morning so It's time for a new challenge today at Allsorts.
This week is our lovely Mervi's turn to host and she would like to see 'Summer Girls'
Here is what I did, I used a Nicecrane image (see below), and decided to papers with a vintage look to them to go with this sweet image.  This image does remind me of my daughter as she was about three years old when we got her a kitten for her birthday, and that is just how she walked round holding the poor thing.

You can find the image I used here:-

Today's News:-
As promised to some of you, here are some photo's of my daughter on her prom night.  She is not your normal spray tan and pretty dress kind of girl, but she was true to herself and wore what she liked.  She looked gorgeous and so grown up and it was lovely to see her out of black jeans, as that is all she wears LOL!  The close up is so beautiful I have been for a frame for it, I am taking all the professional photo's down and I've decided I much prefer the more natural photo's we take ourselves, in natural settings.



























These photo's seem a bit dark and you can't see her shoes properly!





























Recipe:-
Stamps - Nicecrane Nursery Lamp 4, sentiment crafters companion Beatrix Potter, 
Papers - LOTV pressed in time, 
Tools - Spellbinder dies, grand calibur, CC Designs dies, border punch, signature dies, 
Embellishments - gems, ribbon,
