Hey just stopping past with a quick post for the latest challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches which is a colour challenge…

This is a super quick post tonight as my youngest is recovering from surgery so I am on full time nursing duty which translates to I am completely and utterly exhausted!

Have a great week and I look forward to seeing all your wonderful entries. Em x

Birthday Bear!

This week over at CAS Colour and Sketches it is time for a brand new sketch!

For my card I have used one of my favourite stamp sets from MFT and I decided to reverse the sketch so that my bear was looking in to the card!

Don’t forget to check out the CAS Colours and Sketches Challenge to see what the Design Team have created with the sketch for this week. I look forward to seeing all your entries. Em

Pearly Mermaid

Over at Muse Challenge #227 the theme is anything goes. Sometimes when I am given free reign I tend to struggle as I go overboard bringing out so many ideas until I become overwhelmed. That being said I actually really enjoyed having lots of creative freedom this time and found it really relaxing to limit myself to one stamp set and a couple of other items that I have purchased and not used very often.


Pearl card

The gorgeous stamp set is from the Hero Arts monthly kit from a couple of months ago. She has got lots of sparkle on her tail but it doesn’t show so well in the picture. The palm fronds are from Papertrey Ink. I inked up some paper with lots of green hues and then die cut the fronds. I love the sentiment and can’t wait to send this card off to a friend as a “just because card.” Having received a heap of bills in the post this week I always love sending out happy mail to friends just to brighten up their day.

Thanks for dropping by! Em x


It is cold, wet and windy here so the perfect day for some cardmaking. When I saw the latest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches Challenge 299 I immediately thought of bamboo. Luckily I have an MFT stamp with bamboo images!

I kept the colours to a minimum with a big pop of colour for the sushi.

Hello Sweet Pea!

Oh my gosh I can’t believe it is August! Over at CAS Colours & Sketches we have a brand new hostess for August – Patricia! This week she has some colours for us to play with!

I decided that these tones would work well with the My Monthly Hero Kit from July. Here is what I came up with…
