Christmas Snuggles

Hi everyone, hope you all have a great weekend planned, I'm here with you today with a card made with Christmas Snuggles from Makey Bakey Mice available from Bunny Zoe Crafts.

Isn't he just the sweetest? I have used distress markers to colour him in. 

The papers are from Authentique Paper Pad and I have used an On The Edge Brackets die to cut the shape of the card and then distressed the edges with Walnut Stain.

There is a cream crochet doily behind the image with a snowflake charm. There are a couple of the new diamond heart pins in with the flowers, and a cream lily rose and a few cream mini open roses.

Thanks for looking,

Lili Of The Valley Babies Blog Hop

Good morning everyone and thanks for stopping by!

Time for another Lili of the Valley design team blog hop to celebrate the launch of their 10 adorable new Baby stamps

The stamps will be available to buy on the website from midday tomorrow at their Christmas party in Leeds on Saturday if you are able to go along, if you do I'll see you there, I'm looking forward to my first trip to LOTV. They are available online from Monday 2nd November.


Just ‘hop’ from one blog to another following the links and leave a comment on each card, hopefully we can give you lots of ideas and inspiration for using these cute new images

As always we have some hidden prizes along the way, we don’t know where they are so do be sure to visit and comment on every blog
We will let you know tomorrow morning which were the ‘lucky’ blogs and the winners will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left on those blogs

We have 2 full sets of the new stamps to give away, 2 lucky winners will each get all 10 new designs and there will be a 3rd prize of a clear set of our baby companion stamps 

Here's a list of all the blogs taking part, and remember that you will need to visit them all and leave a comment on each one to have the best chance of winning;

I have made something totally different, well for me anyway, as soon as I saw these Girls Shoes I thought that they would make a gorgeous wall hanging, and I was right.

I bought the 10x10 canvases off Amazon, they are just perfect for this.

The papers are all from Vintage Autumn Basics 6x6 Paper Pad by Maja Design.

They have all been coloured with distress markers, with glamour dust for sparkle.

These were just so much fun to make. 

Sorry about the photo heavy post, but I have tried my best to keep them to a minimum.

I think this one is my favourite block. All of the lace, the twine, the charms and most of the flowers are from The Ribbon Girl.

Next stop is  Dawny and if you get lost you can start again at the beginning and pick the links up from there

Finally, don’t forget to stop by the Ideas to Inspire blog tomorrow morning when you can find out who the lucky winners were of the prizes before they go on sale

Enjoy the hop everyone, good luck!

Show The Way Tilda

Morning, I'm here today with my card for the Shabby Christmas theme the we are bringing you this week at Live and Love Crafts.

I love the new Vintage Frost Basics from Maja Design, they are non traditional Christmas Colours, and seeing as though I'm not a red and green kind of girl, they are right up my street!! I have used both sides of the 20th December 12x12 sheet, the edges have been distressed with Walnut Stain ink and slightly distressed in places with my Tim Holtz tool.

I have coloured Show The Way Tilda with my distress markers, and added glamour dust and shabby white frantage too. The sentiment it also from Magnolia, I have hand cut it and wrapped it around a mini reel.

The flowers are all available from the store, links are at the end, there is also a new pearl star flower in there too, along with frosted berries and birch cones. There are a few mini jingle bells, fastened on with a mini safety pin. The corner is also new to the store, from the Marvelle Frame and Corners. I have also added picket fence cracked paint, snow tex and stardust stickles.
