Thankful Wee Bee

This is one of a new series called 'Bee of Good Cheer' from Cuddly Buddly drawn by Kim Sponaugle. This cute little bee is 'Thankful Wee Bee' which i have coloured with my prisma pencils. The stitching is all hand drawn as haven't got a sewing machine, but think it looks OK.
The papers are all fairy fun papers aqua which are downloaded from Cuddly Buddly, i have to say these are my favourite. The round sentiment is fairy fun round greeting stamps also from Cuddly Buddly.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend and that the weather is good to you, some chance of that i think. Whats happened to our lovely sunny weather ?? Think i will have to wait until Sept when i go to Tenerife to glimpse the sun again :(

Whiff Of Joy Guest Designer Challenge

Katharina over at Whiff of Joy is going to be celebrating a whole year of her wonderful WOJ stamps here is what she said

"1 Year - Whiff of Joy Stamps *wohooo* now that's a reason to celebrate, isn't it? There will be a huge Party taking place on July 25th starting at 7 pm on my blog (GMT +1 - there is a clock on my sidebar underneath my profile pic). We will start the celebrations with our first Blog Hop, which will showcase some great new stamps. Those stamps will also be released on this evening. The blog hop will end in our Papercraft Planet group with lots of fun, prizes and special Guest stars, but more later. If you want to be part of this great event, here is your chance. I am looking for 15 dedicated WoJ fans who want to guest design for the Whiff of Joy Anniversary Blog Hop"

I have used the cute Willow image coloured with prismas pencils, can't remember the paper i used think it was a papermania pack i got from the Papermil shop. The flowers are cut with EK retro daisy punch and a bosscuts die, added some punched out leaves around the edge of the scalloped circle.

I hope i am not to late for this challenge! I have been feeling a little fed up this week so left everything until the last minute :(

Here comes Bobby Bear

Here we have Bobby bear and friend again , he is a real sweet image from Cuddly buddly. I have coloured him with prisma pencils. The papers are the Cuddly Buddly download called fairy fun papers in lilac. I have used the same colour combo as my last card, well i girl has to use up her scraps lol.... The greeting is from CB also and is the seven sentiment set. Now i have added some stitching and seem to remember this being a requirement on one of the challenge blogs this week so might enter my card if i can remember where i have seen it lol..

I hope you are all feeling a little cooler, its defo more refreshing here. I am off to Chester zoo tomorrow so may bore you with some pictures lol... just hope the weather stays fine.

Oh and i have some Christmas cards to share with you as i treated myself to some FF Christmas stamps from the Glitterpot, these are a dream to colour and soooooo cute.

Cute lil sheep dog

Well its been some time since i posted a card, don't know where the weeks are going lately! Last week i worked extra at work and with it being so hot i haven't really had time for creating. Its funny but in the summer months i don't seem to get as much card making done, think everything becomes an effort in this heat.
I hope you like this cute lil stamp from Cuddly Buddly, he is one sweet lil fella he is called the littlest sheepdog. I have coloured him with prisma pencils, it always takes a little to blend but i do like the over all effect. I have done a little bit of paper pricking around the edge with a needle. The papers are fairy fun papers in willow, greeting stamp is seven sentiments greetings set. I love the black and lime together think it makes a great contrast.
