I am still here.
Been taking a mental health time out for a while but will be back.
Here is a not very good pic of a pop up box card I made my friend Susan a couple of months ago
I forgot to take a shot with the camera and just had a snap with my phone.

Love to you all

Christmas at Sweet Stampin' is Cold Outside

Hey Folks

It's time for some Mid Challenge inspiration for Christmas at Sweet Stampin'
It's Cold Out Side.

I have used Olaf from the movie Frozen.
He was a Facebook followers freebie from Simply Betty.
Coloured with Promarkers and fussy cut.

He's mounted on a circle of blue glitter card over a 
Nesties heart circle in pearlescent card.
That is on a base of blue mesh over pearlesent card with 
blue sequence ribbon fromThe Ribbon Girl.
Sentiment is computer generated.

Sweet Doodles and Stamping


Time for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin'


Sponsored by The Hobby House

who are giving one lucky winner £10 worth of goodies!

I went clean and simple for this one using the doodles to add dimension to my sentiment

The image is a digi from A Day for Daisies - Little Striped Dress
Coloured with Promarkers.
Sentiment is from a set by Doo Lally Pip called Don't be Afraid.

Doodled frames by me. 
I know some people struggle to doodle but this one is easy.
 Do a more or less straight line first then draw a wavy line next going slightly from one side of straight line to the other. Simples!

Top layer is popped on some 3D foam and matted onto black.
