Taking a Little Break

If you wondered why my blog is soooooo quiet......
It's because we are moving
(hopefully very soon)
It's a big move for us and we are downsizing an awful lot
So there is lots to do/organise
But...as soon as I can I will be back I am so missing my crafting 
Take Care all

Time for Tea ~Simply Cards & Papercraft

So delighted to see some tags I made in this months magazine ~Simply Cards & Papercraft (issue 159) ~ A snowflake is not just for Christmas - You can see my original post right here

Onto this months Magazine and if you haven't got it you really need it
The Freebies WOW!
Time for tea teacup die and stamp set
Such a beautiful teacup die that cuts so perfectly with ease
and a stamp set containing 19 different stamps!!
I actually did not know where to start, this set could be used for so many occasions.
I decided on the Valentine route , but decided to keep it in pastel shades.
I think I am a little fed up with red after Christmas
So I used a 6 x 6 blank card
Time for Tea die & stamp set
Graph'It Markers
Memento Ink Toffee Crunch

I layered up my base card, and then set to work decorating the top - The teapot has some flowers across it , I masked these of as I wanted the teapot to co-ordinate with the background paper. The teacup was die cut using the same .

The flowers were stamped , coloured in and the decoupaged to give some depth, same as the sweet little macaroon.

Tea-bag stamped and colored
I then stamped the sentiment and stamped the little hearts

Have you spotted our brand new Colouring Challenge?
We are now on our 3rd week, we have 4 different teams and this week its my turn
You must check out the blog we have an awesome DT and you could win some amazing prizes


Totally loved my image this week from our great sponsor Dr Digis, so much so I used him twice, I think these digi's might just become an obsession, there is a whole family of them. My image is called Ambrose Dunderton and you can find him in the store right here. I coloured up using Graph'It Markers .
I used White fun flock on the hair and beards
adding some Glossy Accents to there glasses and watches
Finishing off with Dovecraft 3d Pearl Effects Green and Blue (for there buttons)
I made a 3d Shop front using Fabulous Fellas CD by Katy Sue, I can't remember how long I have had this or the last time I used it, but I don't recall ever making the pub  , but hey I really think Ambrose suits the scene.
I have situated Ambrose in Blue so he is sitting on a bar stool
