Turtle Time,

 Hi Everyone,

Im here today using the super sweet Turtley Great Stamp set for a couple of creations. 

I love this set. (But then I love all the sets that Gerda Designs!!! ) How cute is the turtle and his friends.

My first creation is a cute wee shadow box.

For my second creation I had a play with alterative colours for a turtle. So hes a bright rainbow guy.
 I added a wee party hat on this guy. Its from the Daschunds Stamp Set.  Love that you can mix and match all Gerdas set. They compliment each other so well. 
I watercoloured the background and then fussy cut the turtle out.  You can buy dies here that coordinate with the set though. 

Thanks for dropping by today,  enjoy your day, 

Love Hazel x

If  you look back to last Saturdays post I made a card from my folks 49th Anniversary. This tag was a matching one from the set  for their wee bottle of plonk. (Its showed here with an old bottle of irn bru from before they stopped doing bottles. Jake had it in the cupboard and i just grabbed it for the pic)

Pink Gems are going Pink....

Hi Folks, 

Well its the weekend once again!! Where does the time go??  This month!!! Yes you read it right a whole 4 weeks of this challenge over at  A Gem of a Challenge.

 Its a Breast Cancer Awareness themed one. We want to see pink as the predominant colour.
Thank You Annie for the fabby Word Art xx 
We have been affected significantly by cancer in our household. My Dad is living with Metastatic Prostrate Cancer. Hes my Wee Warrior! The boys Gran on their Dads side has had breast cancer twice, shes here to tell the tale and is such strong lady. 

Anyway onto my creation. It was for Mum and Dads Anniversary a fornight ago!!!

I used the fabby Hedgy Love Squares Topper Set.   Its big enough that you use an 8 x 8 card with it.  I decoupaged up the hedgies on the front a couple of times and added a wee 49 number sticker too. I love the insert you get withthe set too. How adorable is that wee guy with his heart.

I hope you liked the card,

Love and Sparkles,

Happy Snail...,

 Hi Everyone,  

Im here with some Gerda Steiner Designs inspiration today using the Turtley Great Stamp Set.  

I fell in love with the little snail in the set so had to play with him before I played with the turtles. 
For my first creation I have made an circle easel card. I used some dies I had in my crafty stash and also the I Heart You from the Oh Manatee Set.   I coloured the card in with watercolour pencils.

My second creation is made using the pretty cupcakes in the set too. I thought they would look great as a border on the card. 
Im not sure if you can see but I added some glossy accents to his shell in this card and sprinkled a wee bit of glitter on his shell.  

You can buy the stamp set here.  The co-ordinating dies are avaliable here. 

Thanks for dropping by today, 

Love Hazel x

I made it....

 Hurray!!! I made it to day 7 of Bugaboos Christams in July Week!!! 
Today its the new Bugaboo Santa Freebie that I have used.
 I made a wee ATC with him as I had no idea who I would give a card to with him on the beach to!!   This was like Tom and his pal yesterday  out at the beach. Roberts Mum took them to Lunan Bay and boy did they have fun!!! Tom had Robert buried up to his neck in the sand!!! Thats what the holidays are for, making memories. Its horrible that I cant manage these things with my agoraphobia. Too many people and too hot for my wonky brain!! 
I cut the handle off the bucket by accident and now my Coconut tree looks like its been potted!!! Can you spot the robin enjoyingthe sun too!!!

Bugaboo's Christmas...

 Hi Guys,

Happy Thursday!!! Its almost the weekend. Golly it was cool here earlier and all of a sudden the sunshine is roasty toasty once again!!!!
 Im now on day 6 of the Christmas in July challenge over at Bugaboo!!! 
Card Recipe
6 x 6 Card
Bugaboo Image - Cant seem to find it instore. 
Papers and sentiment from Old Crafty Magazine Set.
Washi Tape from Poundland.

This card is going in the charity card pile. Ive decided that every card I make with a Penguin on it I will be donating to the Local Maggies Cancer Centre this year for them to sell.  The reason being is that in Dundee this summer there is a Penguin Parade for Maggies so I thought my creations with pingus could help raise more funds. My folks use the Maggies centre a lot to help them with issues relating to Dads cancer. 

Thanks for dropping by today, I will be back hopefully tomorrow with my last make of the week!!!

Day 5 in the Bugaboo Fest...

Hi Folks,

I hope you are all ok in the heatwave. Its not the warmest day here thankfully. We have clouds and a cooler breeze. We seem to always miss the weather warning weather both in Summer and Winter!! 

Mind you that didnt stop me filling Belles paddling pool for her this morning, wearing a furry coat isnt fun in any significant heat!!! She loves a wee paddle or drink from it though the day.

Here is my creation for todays theme over on Bugaboos Christmas in July Challenge. I bought this wee fellow yesterday as its a funny creation today and he made me laugh!!! 

I was inspired to make a tag after doing the Simon Says Monday Blog Hop yesterday night. Oh My Goodness. The tags and creations were amazing!!! I dont have  alot of Tim Holtz goodies so I went with watercolour paints and pencils for my background.
