Hello and Happy Sunday!

It's my turn to pick a prompt at 

And this week I've picked the word

I love glass bottles ... I like the feel of the glass, the colours and the different shapes ... the way they catch the light ...
Bottles with flowers in painted, plain or burlap wrapped...

Bottles with perfume, oils or candles...

Rows of green bottles that look like they've been embossed, just waiting to be bought

or maybe just a couple on a shelf

And I just adore the cute little bird stopper on this bottle of mine

I'm quite partial to a bottle of red wine too as it happens ... lol!

Share your photos with us this week at
and go visit the blog to see more photos from the team 

Hugs for now

Smooshing Galaxy


I've spent a lovely afternoon with an amazing friend who celebrated her birthday today...
She happens to be a fine artist herself and I know she loves to see paint take on it's own shape so I decided to create a birthday card with a sort of Galaxy feel in her favourite colours

To create the effect I "smooshed" with  Distress stains, Distress Paints and a Versamark ink pad - dried it and then flicked gold, white and pewter paints over

It was only fitting that I added a big star and who better to hold on to it than a little elephant. I coloured him and covered him in glossy accents but it's a little hard to see that.

I hope your day is a good as mine has been ... 
Till next time

NBUS challenge

Hello sweet friends How are you?
It's a sunny Spring morning here in Liverpool but it is still quite cold and the temperatures at night drop really low...

 Today I have an Easter card I made for a blog friend but I'm also entering it at 

 Can you believe it's almost Easter?? Where has the time gone?

That sweet little chick is a digital image from a free colouring page I found on the internet maybe a year ago and I never used it - the banner stamp by Wplus9 is also a NBUS item .. it's been hiding in my drawer

 I coloured the little chick with my meagre supply of Promarkers, fussy cut it and popped it up on a sponged piece of die cut CS

I really love those colours and you know I just love those stitched border dies ... I can't stop using them

I hope your week is going well ...
Have a lovely day

City Crafter 254

Good morning
It's time for a new challenge at City Crafter where I am hosting this week

The challenge I have selected for you this week is

"Lets Go Ombre"

What we are looking for is a card or project that clearly features Ombre colours ... They can be in the form of a tag or a whole card it's up to you and any shade will do- You can paint, sponge or just use papers... I chose the latter for my card

...And in my favourite shades

We have the lovely Darnell of djkardkrations Guesting with us all this month and our winner will also have a GD spot with us ...
Hop on over to the City Crafter Blog to see what the team have come up with this week and hopefully you will be inspired to get out your inks and papers and join in with our challenge 

I do hope you are having a good week

Thanks for your visit and all your sweet comments

Meet Monique


I'd like you to meet a friend of mine Monique Dubois

She doesn't live with me (well, I've got cats) No, she's from Paris
My blog friend Darnell as most of you know has a hamster "Hammy" and Monique would love to meet him

Ok, Monique is a mouse not a hamster and I'm not sure how hamsters and mice get on so Darnell may have her hands full... Never the less this card will be on it's way very soon

I think maybe I need another cup of coffee... or maybe I've had too many

Till soon

Stretch Your Dies Day 6

Hello ...
This is my second post today ...  I would love it if you scrolled down to check out the post for

I'm just posting my card for Day 6 of the online class

Day 6 is about using your border dies in different ways ... The team really came up with some amazing samples ... Shaped cards, inlaid die technique and sponging using a border die cut as a template
I went with the latter using the Hillside Border dies by Lawn Fawn to create this cute card

The little elephant is a recent purchase ... he's from the Unforgettable stamp set by Wplus9 which I got from Make the Day Special - I just love this cute set

My sponging needs a little practice but I'm happy with how this turned out

I hope your day is A beautiful one

Thanks so much for stopping by
