Treat Yourself!

Hello Crafty Peeps,

It's been a busy time this month and I haven't given myself much time for crafting apart from design team projects. I knew I wanted to make something with this adorable image from Sweet November Stamps as soon as I saw it though, so while the kids were amusing themselves I got on with colouring. 

'Sale-abration Fairwee' is excited to be going on a shopping spree for her friends and maybe a little something for herself too! Her background is of twinkling stars and rainbow colours as she's shopping in a magical land.


She is so happy, that she's leaving a rainbow trail behind her as she flies.

She has her magic gold Weesa card at the ready!

The tag holds a little surprise...

Thanks for stopping by today.
I wish you a fantastic festive season.

Dare To Dream at Tiddly Inks

 Hello Tiddly Peeps,

Well the weather outside is frightful, so I'm inside with a hot drink and crafting time! Christy gave the team some brand new images to play with so I am showcasing "Dare To Dream" today. Check out the other new images while your'e over at the Etsy store.

Spooktacular Spice Fairy

 Hello Crafty Peeps,

It's almost Halloween so I had to make one last spooky creation! I've been colouring scenes using Sweet November images lately, so I thought I would change things up with a pop up front step panel card (this name is so long I usually just call it a 3D card!). For some reason I always end up using this style for Halloween cards. I never give them, but they make fantastic decor pieces.

The Pumpkin Spice Fairy has decided to stick around to watch the Trick or Treaters, so she's dressed in her favourite Halloween colours and chilling out in a cup with her PSL!


I just need to add a piece of twine to the back so I can hang this as a decoration with my others.

Thank-fall at Tiddly Inks

 Hello Tiddly Peeps,

I don't know about you but I'm so not ready for winter yet. I can really feel it coming though with the freezing winds we are having right now. Brrr.

Going Digital at The Paper Shelter

 Hello Crafty Peeps,

This week's theme at The Paper Shelter is super easy - you just have to use a Digital Image!

I have used 'Mysterious Skull & Roses' to create a shadow box frame as a gift for a friend.


I wanted my background to have a look of a smoky atmosphere

I bought these skull beads to make some jewellery and had some left over. So glad I did as they are perfect for this project.

Black and red flowers are the perfect finishing touch

A Little Spooky

 Hello Crafty Peeps,

I've been having fun with some spooky images from Sweet November to create a Halloween Scene. I merged from 'Vampire Cavern', 'Spooky Full Moon', 'Spooky Tree', 'Bubbling Cauldron' and 'Tree Friend Hawthorn'. I had another go at the fog technique as it's so perfect for this kind of scene.

Layer It Up at The Paper Shelter

 Hello Crafty Peeps,

It's time for another challenge from team B at The Paper Shelter and this time we are going to Layer It Up.  

As it's now what my son loves to call "Spooky Month", I had to use a Halloween Image. You can grab 'My Adorable Little Witch' in the store as well as many other awesome images.

I've added several layers plus texture using an embossing folder, ribbons and sequins. I gave my witch a little Elphaba vibe with green skin,
