Hunkydory Little Books are fab!

Good Evening Everyone, 
Everyone here is starting to recover from all the nasty bugs that have been going around. Both Tom and Emma have gone back to school now, although we are counting down the days to the Christmas holidays! 

I have a quick card to share tonight, that I made using a page from one of the Little Books from Hunkydory. I have quite a few of these 'Little Books' and absolutely love them!


I've used scraps of paper from my bit box, but I think they might be from The Works and Magnolia. I've used a Creative expressions poinsettia die and an x-cut border punch.

Christmas Sled - Lili of the Valley DT

Good Afternoon Everyone, 
I've been a bad blogger again. When Emma broke her foot, I thought I would get a bit of time off cricket practice...oh no...she's been helping with training and scoring for the games!
Anyway, today I had to pick her up from school as she had been sick. When I got there, the school nurse had 11 children sitting in the medical room, all with sick bowls!

While she's sleeping, I'm having a little time too catch up with everyone. I don't want to wake her up by doing the hoovering...well that's my excuse anyway!

Onto my card... This is 'Christmas Sled' from Lili of the Valley.

I've coloured them with promarkers and the background papers are from First Edition. I've used a Die namics picket fence die, a Spellbinders snowflake die and Marianne Creatables tree die. The sentiment tag stamp is from Lili of the Valley.

Wish Upon a Star - Sugar Nellie

Good Morning Everyone,
It's been hectic yet again. Most of you know that I went back to work full time, and as I was feeling a bit more tired Mr Mojo did a bunk! Then last week, Emma managed to break her foot in PE at school, which meant a 6 hour visit to A and E! She has a foot brace and crutches and the Doctors have said everything should heal fine. I just have one very frustrated 12 year old who can't do cricket practice! 

I have had this stamp coloured for a while, I just hadn't done anything with it....so eventually here it is! It's an old image from sugar Nellie called 'Wish Upon a Star'.



I've coloured her with promarkers and added lots of glitter to her fairy wings. The background paper id from Lili of the Valley. I've used a die namics picket fence die and a spellbinders snowflake die.

James Pile of Presents - Lili of the Valley DT

Good Morning Everyone, 
I'm out at a craft fair today but as it's Remembrance Sunday I will certainly be joining in the 2 minutes silence. 


Although there are some horrendous things happening around the world, the majority of us are extremely lucky to live the lives we do.

I have a card to share today using James - Pile of Presents.


This is a 7" square card, so I was able to print James out a little bit bigger - for me, this is one of the big advantages of using digi stamps. I've coloured him with promarkers and the background papers are from First Edition.
I've used a Creative Expressions poinsettia die and a computer generated sentiment.

Christmas angels - Lili of the Valley DT

Good Morning Everyone, 
I have a few candles to share today. I've used 3 of my favourite angel stamps from Lili of the Valley. I've used the rubber stamps of Christmas Angel Flying and Christmas Angel Praying.


Although the rubber stamps have been discontinued, two of the angels are now available as digital stamps and you can find them here...Christmas Angel FlyingChristmas Angel Praying.
I've coloured them with promarkers, and added a few liquid pearls for the berries.
The candle wreath was from a local shop in last year's January sale.
