Hiya folks, are you a lover of those cutie beauties from The Greeting Farm, well if so, tomorrow sees the release of a brand new set of stamps and Tracy at Dies To Die for has very kindly sent me these to play with aren't they adorable, thank you so much my luvly...mwah.

For the card below I've coloured the "Amazing Duo" with Copics, then covered it with Tim Holtz "rock candy", the sentiments are also TGF,  the papers I've had for yonks not sure if they are DCVW, the stars were cut using a sizzix die.  I've entered this card into this weeks FRIDAY SKETCHERS CHALLENGE,  great sketch btw.

OMG!!!! I just love this one so much, isn't she adorable. Her name is Amelia and she's available to purchase tomorrow at Dies To Die For. Again I've coloured her with Copics, then heat embossed clear embossing powder over the entire image to give it a glossy look.  The papers are My Minds Eye, Oooh La La Summer Days and Abbey Road.  I've also heat embossed the Stampin Up sentiment. Then finished it off with a fancy ribbon!!! Martha Stewart border punch available from Dies To Die For.  I've entered this card into this weeks Ribbon-tastic challenge over at CUTE CARD THURSDAY .

And this lil fellow is so sweet, his name is Oliver  he'll also be avaible tomorrow.  Again I've coloured him with Copics, the papers are Basic Grey "Archaic", Stampin Up sentiment.

Well that's it for me today folks, don't forget to check out the new TGF releases tomorrow at Dies To Die For.  Hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend,

Hiya peeps, I've finally got around to playing with this fabby girly stamp set that the wonderfully lovely Tracy over at Dies To Die For sent me a while back and boy it's taken me long enough, huge apologies Tracy (slapping my wrists).  The set is by Pink Cat Studios, I've paper pieced the dress in the card below with the most delish papers from My Minds Eye and would you beleive they are actually Halloween themed papers but  they're double sided with this damask style print on the one side, have to say that I love these.....yummy!!!!  The list of goodies and where to buy them from is at the bottom of this post.  These cards fit this weeks Fab 'n' Funky "Black & White" Challenge and it's the first time for me to play along with this challenge blog. 

Here's a lil looky at the whole stamp set, lots of lovely girlyness

delish goodies used for these cards are:

If your anything like me, i.e. paper drooler, stroker etc, then check out the gorgeous new papers from Prima, My Minds Eye, Bo Bunny plus loads of other delishiousness HERE.  Mind you, you may find yourself having to purchase two sets, yep one to use one to!!!!  Have to say that the new Prima papers are exquiste, stunning, super delish, gorgeous.......I could go on and on.....

all loved up

Hiya peeps, gosh where on earth do these days get to, can't believe how long it's been since I last visited Blogland or posted anything for that matter.  Hope your all keeping happy and well.

Here's a card with a matching box I made for my boss to give her hubby.  She asked me if I could make him a Valentines card, so I dug out the gorgeous Pink Petticoat "Just an Old Fashioned Girl" CD, I absolutely love the papers on this CD but don't use it often enough.  I've distressed the edges of the papers and added gold embossing powder here and there.

I shall be back soon with some more cards to show.
