Something Fishy at Top Tip Tuesday...

Hello... how quickly has two weeks flown by?!?

It's time for another Top Tip Tuesday Challenge, and this weeks is 


Which is sponsored by 2 Cute Ink and I used the Angel Fish image

Now, I don't know why (maybe I've been making too many cards for adults recently...) but I found this one tough... maybe because when I'm making a kids card, I usually have a recipient in mind... who knows!

Anyway, I really hope you like it... in my defence it is quite pink... does that count :-)

Hope you like it nevertheless :-)

Hugs, Sue xx

Ladybug Crafts Ink Grand Finale


This is one post I never wanted to write, and I'm welling up as I type this ;-(

After much soul searching, Head Ladybug has decided the time is right to close the doors on Ladybug Towers :(  As of today there is a massive sale on over at the online store - get your bargains while you can, as once they have gone they've gone... click here to go directly to the store.

I'm delighted that so many of my fellow DT members have returned for our last hurrah... which is

Your Favourite Image

As ever, we'd love for you to use a LCI image, but it's not compulsory...

Anyway, before I go all teary eyed, here is my card, using Dancing Nikki...

I coloured Nikki with my copics, and added a touch of bling here and there...

And I just had to decorate the inside too...

I'd like to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you to Kerry for having the courage to set up LCI in the first place, it was her images that got me into stamping and colouring in the first place, and for asking me to join the original DT, and for being a fabulous friend over the last few years;  to all the DT members past and present for making this a complete blast, I will miss working with you all

It's all about the stationary at Top Tip Tuesday...


It's time for another Top Tip Tuesday, and this time it is to use stationary... if I'm being 100% honest I really struggled with this one - I'm more of a flowers and bows kind of a crafter than a metal one.  Maybe I see too much stationary every day at work to get inspired by it when I'm trying to relax :-D

Anyway, after a bit of a think I dug out some paper fasteners/brads and started playing... as I needed a thank you card, and had unearthed a whole heap of scraps my card came together.  I guess I could have popped an image on here, but I quite like the simplicity of this one without!  The brad was a bit brassy for the papers, so I coloured it with a Copic marker, I think it looks OK, and is a good way of matching metal items to your project.  Although I would recommend more patience than I had first time round, and letting the ink dry, or you end up covered :-)

Anyway, hope you like my interpretation of this weeks theme...

Thanks for stopping by
