Hello there people,

Did you do anything special for Valentines Day this year? Hope you were showered with love as you deserve to be everyday :)

I thought I would show you this new Magnolia image I bought from Bizzy Bec's. Isn't she cute. She's called "Tip Toe Tilda" and is available to pre-order from Bizzy Bec's Store. I've teamed her up with some gorgeous dies from Memory Box called: Banner Parade, All about the love, Cross Stitched Hearts and Stitched Heart Layers.

There are some awesome new dies like these ones by Memory Box, you NEED them in your stash! There are still a few more days left to enter in the Anything Goes Challenge this month!

I look forward to seeing what you create!

Birthday Wishes.....

Hi everyone, can you believe January has been and gone already.  I have not had much time for card making lately, but would like to share with you a card I made using some of the great products available from Bizzy Becs online store.

On my card I have used Small Stitched Circle Stackables and Large Stitched Circle Stackables from Lawn Fawn, Leaf Filled Flourish from MFT, sentiment is from Bizzy Becs Digi Ticket Stubs - "A Little bit of Everything 3" and the image is a stamp from CC Designs.  Bec has a great range of stamps, dies and all things that you will need to make some great projects.  Come and browse around Bizzy Becs online store here.

I coloured the images with Copic Markers and added a few small flowers and some sequins.  All edges were inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to give a bit of a vintage feel.

Thank you for visiting,
