I noticed a few of them popping up on the cricut mb so I wanted to share this link to stamp owls blog too as for those nights when you just don't feel like getting out your cricut ( like me tonight because i feel rough!!) this is super.
This one is for a lovely friend of mine at work whose birthday is tomorrow. I love the pink embossed paper on this one ( thank you ikea!!) and the black lace goes so nicely with it. The card is cream hammered card for a more realistic skin look!!!! can't see it very well in the photo though.
The lacey bit is paper adhesive lace and I just pleat it to get it to go nicely around the edges of the bra and pants. A little black bow with a gem on and it is done. You can do them really quick and simple with the template but I love to take a bit more time and perfect the look of the lacey bit, makes it look a bit more lush!!!!Its a little bit cheeky but I like it!!!!
Thank you for popping in xxxxx

We have a wet and dreary day here today but little mo and I have not wasted it!! We went mud squelching and puddle splashing this morning, lots of fun and giggles from little mo!! wish I had taken my camera. Then we did the boring tasks of cleaning out our rabbit simba and tidying up the back garden.
I was still feeling in a valentines kind of crafty mood so this afternoon I have been having fun playing with the new lily-boo's boutique window collection.
I really enjoyed making this card, Mo was poottling along on nick jnr and chatting away to me and it just made my afternoon so nice!!!
So here is my window wiper card!!!!
I printed it out twice and for the top part cut out the girl,plant and just the window frame to get some dimension in the card. I coloured her in with my copics and added a bit of sparkle with my spicas ( doesn't come out in the pictures but it looks really pretty in real life!!!! the window frame is glossed with glossy accents ( looks like white PVCU!!!! lol !!!!)
I embossed the background with hearts and added a bit of ribbon. On my little panels and my pop up wiper bit I used some silver mirri board and my love language cuttlebug folder again!! its one of my fav's and I use it a lot!!!!!
When Mo has gone to bed I am going to watch a film with scott , we were going to watch 'The time travellers wife' but I watched that last night instead ( ....oh so sad, I cried buckets!!! daft bat!!!)
Thank you for popping in!!!

I wanted to personalise it a bit so I printed out her name on edwin's balloon. I glazed the balloon and the little heart on edwin's jumper and gave martha a bit of a whirl on the heart cardstock and gold vellum.
I made the inside to match as I had a couple of scraps of the heart card left. I cuttlebug embossed the gold vellum on the inside with the little hearts embossing folder that came in my love language set.

Firstly a warning....if you don't already get the magnlia ink mag...don't get it!!!!!! romfl!!! it has shown me how many things I NEED!!! no seriously, it is a gorgeous magazine. Whilst drooling over my magnolia ink mag I saw some tilda's coloured in with distress inks and decided to give it a go ( please bear in mind I have a whole 2 distress inks!!!! tattered rose and frayed burlap and my first attempt is probably a bit pants!!!) but to be honest after coouring this one, they were a super 2 colours for me to choose and o together really nicely, I love brown and pink.
Oh and of course a bit of martha was invloved too ( another warning must be issued here....don't give in to martha's..... you will always NEED more!!!!) ooh she cuts like butter and looks so cute though!!!!! lol!!!!!
So here's my effort!!! I also highlighted tilda a bit with my at you spicas, I tried my best to get it in the picture but the light is a bit dark here even in the daytime at the moment.
Awwww, she's cute!! another one of my stamp club swap ones but I will own her one day I am sure!!!! I love how her socks turned out.The backing paper is another sheet from my 'stroke it only' collection but the colours went together so nicely and the little cupids were cute!!!
Right, off for a cuppa now!!! thank you for popping in on me!! hugs

after a bit of a grey yukky day the sun has popped out(.....just in time for it to go down!!!!!!) so I was fially able to dash outside and take a picture of my first attempt at playing with my new ms punches.
I made this card for my amazing dh for valentines day, I love the stamp ( its a trimcraft one i bought from crafty club last month and it is sooooo cute!!)
I couloured him up with my copics and my yummy new spicas to glitz him a bit but its so hard to see it in the picture, grrrrrrr!!!!!
