Time To Celebrate and Goodbye to LIM

Morning LIMettes.... Remember Me???  As you may have read over at Less Is More this is my last challenge as part of the DT.  I'm sure I will pop in a a guest every now and then but the new job is meaning I don't have as much time for crafting as I once did with all the travelling.  I'm hoping it will all settle down in the new year but I have had to make the difficult decision to leave the team!
I will still be crafting on a regular basis in the new year etc but I don't have the free time to visit you all every week.

In order to thank you I have some surprise candy to give away.... Don't worry I know you will all love what it is!!
  All you need to do is leave me a comment on this post and I will pick when the challenge ends! 
This weeks challenge is "Family" and it will run for 2 weeks over the Christmas Period. 

Here is my final card for as part of the LIM DT...

I have used a super fun little image from Tiddly Inks Monterous Party .... It is perfect for my LIMett family!
I have coloured them in with Copics and it's finished off with a sentiment from Clearly Besotted Stamps Back To Basics collection!

Hope you all have a great Saturday!

Birthday In The Stars.. and Some Travel Pics

Morning... Yes I know it's been a while... I've been on my travels with work for the best part of a month but I thought I would pop in and show you a few pics from my travels and I even have a card to share!

So here are some photos from Vienna....

And from Bangalore, India!

Now for my card..... It was my good friend Rachel's birthday last week and i managed to squeeze in a little card making before I went there on Friday for our jail break! Here it is.... 

The word die is of course one of my favourites from Clearly Besotted Stamps, the stars are from a Lil' Inkers die and were left from another card and the card stock is blackberry bliss and lost lagoon from Stampin Up! 

I used the sketch over at CASe This Sketch #103 for the card ... love how they can ease you back into card making after a break of a few weeks...

That's it from me for today... Hopefully I'll be back soon

Birdie Thanks! Tiddly Inks Tuesday Challenge

Morning.. It's time for a new challenge at Tiddly Inks and this week we want to see cards of thanks or gratitude.  I used the very sweet For The Birds!

I think this card took me about 10 minutes to make too!!

I'm mad with work for the next 3 weeks so probably won't be around much... have a great Tuesday

Smile & Say Cheers... Spotlight Over At Jane's Doodles

Morning, today I am guest designing for Jane's Doodles for the November release and we have 2 fabulous sets to show you.   Jane lives in Croatia and hand draws all of her images with paper and pencil.
One winner has the chance to win both of these sets and you can also get 20% off these stamp sets. All you need to do it leave a comment on this mini blog hop!

Right onto the cards anyhow...

Spotlighting the Stripes & Dots

I simply stamped a background with the dots onto some kraft card stock and then using my stitched rectangle cut a corner off another piece of kraft and layered it over the top! It's finished off with the sentiment from the set. I used this week CASe this Sketch for inspiration #100!!

Spotlighting the Cheers

I simply coloured in the little beer glass with a couple of promarkers and then added some white ranger enamel accents to the froth.  Simple for that man in your life!

Hope you have a great day and make sure you check out the rest of the blog hop!

See you tomorrow

Most Wonderful Time Of The Year..

Morning..   If you have managed to pick up a copy of the latest Papercraft inspirations Magazine you can see the latest tester project using some fabulous fancy pants goodies.  This was my little card adding my own CAS style.

I don't normally use sets like this, but they are so quick and easy to make cards with!

Hope you have a great Sunday... I'm locking myself in the studio... so much to make today

Missing You

Morning.... I'm doing well .. second day in a row posting.  November and early December are crazy for me with travel for work so I'm trying my best to do some crafting and post my creations.

I was testing copics out on Stampin Up whisper white card stock for Lizy last week so I coloured in this cute little fox from the More Stories from Avery Elle.

I masked the little guy off and used distress ink (which also works fab on the whisper white) and then added a little frantage as snow.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set too! I thought the kraft cardstock frame worked perfectly with the little scene!

Hope you have a great Friday....
