Shake your tail feathers...


Hello. I love this chicken image from the cluck cluck set  over at the DigiStamp Boutique. It makes me smile. And a great sentiment to go with it too. A quick touch of colouring, some co-ordinating papers and job done!

Tweet me sometime...

Hello. I'm back home in Scotland safe and sound. My final Trimcraft demo just over the English border in Carlisle was a success. The demo was busy with lots of folk coming and going but two lovely ladies spent the whole day with me and I will share the cards we made later this week.

In the meantime here is this weeks DigiStamp Boutique card. I used 'Tweet me Tweet' which comes with the matching sentiment. I coloured with Copic pens and the papers are On The Brightside by My Minds Eye.

make a wish


Hello. Well that's my Trimcraft demo in Edinburgh done and dusted. Last one of the season is next week, just over the Scottish border by 10 miles, in Carlisle. 

So I'm here now with my weekly DigiStamp Boutique card. There's some super cute new releases - the cute unicorn (that I used on my card), some gnomes and some super cute kittys. All on special offer and available here.

I used Copic marker pens to colour and the paper is from Lili of the Valley. I added a few sequence for a bit of sparkle.

Mimi in the bath (and in the pink!)


Hello. Oh my, I think I'm just going to make it in time for this fortnight's In The Pink challenge. I nearly gave it a miss when I saw what the challenge was - Make It Sparkle. 

But, no! That's why they are challenges! So, I'm not really a sparkly, glittery sort of crafter. Glitter is very unruly, the minute it's opened it's everywhere, and I mean everywhere! Glitter card, mmmmmm, nothing sticks to that. Oh, I know the scrape some off trick but that in itself is a messy business, and I feel for my poor pokey tool. And don't even get me started on glitter glue!

Anyhoo, here it is. Complete with glitter card and glitter glue and much, much more sparkly in real life!

it's your day!


Hello. Well I'm back from my jaunt to Dundee. I met some lovely crafters (and non-crafters) who all went away with a beautiful, made by their own fair hands, card using the latest Trimcraft products. Next Sunday I'm heading south to Dumfries, hope to see you there!

Anyhoo, here is my usual Sunday card for the DigiStamp Boutique. I have used Nell and flowers, a brand new image and on offer at the moment. I coloured using Copic pens and the paper is 'simple stories'. There are still a few days left to make a card using any of the Boutique's images and enter the customer competition. All the details are here.

Trimcaft Santoro demo card


Hello. I thought you might like to see one of the cards I made at last Sunday's Trimcraft demo. Isn't she gorgeous? The image is from the decoupage pad and I added a metal charm and a wooden key.

This Sunday I am a little further afield from home (will need the satnav for this one). I am at The Range in Dundee. As well as the Santoro range I also have the brand new Bohemian range to show off!

New Home

 Hello. We are having a really lovely spell of gorgeous spring sunshine. Maybe that's what prompted me to use a yellowy (is that a word?) shade on my card!

The digi image is 'sketchy house' and is on offer at the mo' in The DigiStamp Boutique. All the new images are here.  There's something for everyone this month - some cute farmyard animals, owls, Christmas, a snoozing Ralph and (my new favourite) Kimono Pip.
