Bright Pastels And A Blue Rinse

Two posts in one day?

Well I’m keeping with the Quixotic Paperie theme and just wanted to show you my latest make using things you can get in the shop. The papers are from K&Co Sparkly Sweet collection and I’ve cut out the butterflies from one of the papers to use as an embellishment.

I’m sure you will recognise the yummy The Greeting Farm Wild Sprout Annika stamp? Some fabby charms, a little touch of Shimmerz paints on the image matt and I might have done some stitching.

There you go – a finished card – Hurrah!

OK So Where Did The Week Go?

Oh boy! So I did not manage to get any challenges done and I’ve not managed to blog since Monday – shock! I don’t even have a full make to show you today. But I do have some peeks and hopefully when some deadlines have passed I shall have more to show and more time to visit you all. I miss my blog hopping and chatting with you all.

So a peek for some work I’ve done for Shimmerz Paints and don’t forget that I have a tutorial with some hints and tips for using Shimmerz over at Quixotic Paperie.

Before I go I have been really lucky this week starting with winning some wonderful Martha Stewart Punches from the fabulous Rach at the beginning of the week. They are my first MS punches and I love them to bits. I suspect you will be seeing a lot of them. Rach has more candy giveaways on her blog so hop along there ASAP.

But my other bit of fab news was that cards (and tutorial) made by myself and the lovely Elaine with the fabulous Paper Makeup stamps were spotlighted on the Paper Makeup blog by Katie – how exciting is that? Thanks Katie, thanks Elaine 🙂

Right, I have some more deadlines to meet – so catch you all later.

Have a Lucky Friday

Where Did The Weekend Go?

Good morning Monday.

Some of you might remember a bit of a sneaky peak I posted last week? Well, here is a bigger peak. The whole card is posted on Elaine’s blog Quixotic Paperie along with a Tips Tutorial for using your Shimmerz Paints.

I often use my paints to highlight images and of course it is perfect for painting wings, so if you want some tips on how to use your Shimmerz paints then pop along to Quixotic Paperie. Whilst you are there take a look at Elaine’s beautiful cards! Stunning! And don’t forget to check out all the yummy new products in the shop 🙂

So what are you guys all up to this week? I have some projects on the go, unfortunately nothing I can show yet on the blog. But I am hoping to get some challenges done this week – I wonder if I will manage? What challenges are you all hoping to do this week?

Have a Challenging Monday
(in the best possible way of course)

A card, a card! Wahoo! I’ve managed to post a card! I just love this stamp! Ok so you know by now that I pretty much say that for every stamp I have. LOL!

Well they are all my favourites and this one is no exception, she is a The Greeting Farm cutey that you can get from Quixotic Paperie along with the Shimmerz paints I’ve used to highlight her, the button and the leafs.

Of course she has to have sparkly shoes – goes without saying.

Sneaky Peaky

Elaine has been a busy bunny and has been adding lots of lovely stuff to Quixotic Paperie, including Rangers Stickles, papers, charms and stamps, stamps, stamps 🙂

Have you seen the wonderful Paper Makeup stamps? I adore those wonderful fairies and the monsters are just perfect for those little monsters in your life 🙂

Then there are the gorgeous CC Design Stamps some are on sale as well! Also there are some really cute animal stamps on pre-order from Tina Wenke, so sweet. But I thought I would show you another of the yummy Belles and Whistle stamps that can be pre-ordered too.

Stamps, stamps, stamps – we love our stamps!

Before I go a little bit of a sneak peak for you of a project using one of my fav Paper Makeup fairies and Shimmerz Paints which you can also get from Quixotic Paperie Tee Hee 🙂

Monster Party

The monsoon season arrived in London yesterday, so it was lucky that on day two of our Stay-cation City Break we were taking it easy in the flat, detoxing with homemade pizza, cartoons and playing Lego Batman.

I even managed to make a card! Shock! Using this wonderful cheeky Paper Makeup monster stamp from Quixotic Paperie. Oh I just love him to bits – he looks to me like he has just been busted for doing something naughty like having a party at his Mum’s house whilst they where on holiday, what do you think?

The yummy paper is from the fabulously cheerful DCWV Citrus stack and the fibres were hand dyed by my own fair hands 🙂
