With Love

Hi Bloggers

It's time for me to share my latest DT make for Lemon Shortbread with you all, and to let you know that today is the start of Challenge #24

I used the super sweet

Heart of Roses

and coloured her with my ProMarkers, colours listed below, and I didn't want to do too much on my card as I wanted the image to shine. I used a sheet of paper from my stash along with an oddment of thin pink ribbon and lace scrap. The sentiment was from a set that was a freebie on a magazine and I added 2 pink flat back pearls
I hope you like the simplicity of my make this time and that you will come along and join us in the challenge this time

Beautiful Blue Lagoon

Hello Bloggers

It's the start of a new challenge at

and I can't believe I am actually sharing some MALE cards that Ive made, not that I'm sharing them but that I actually made more than the one I needed to make but because the papers were so fab and funky I thought they would work great for men's cards

I used the Blue Lagoon paper pack

For my first make I needed a card for my cousin who is going to be 12, so I wanted to make it bright but not too young for him. The stamp is a Papermania clear cling stamp, coloured with various Sakura pens. I cut different sizes of various designs from the Blue Lagoon paper set and matted them onto white card before layering them up onto a 6x6" white card blank

For my others I used white 5x5" card blanks. I did 2 in a similar way to the first card but I just edged the paper pieces with black ink instead of matting onto white card, the other one I cut a 'Happy Birthday' sentiment from some of the papers and black card and added them straight onto the card blank

I hope you will come along and join in our challenge, it's always
and you can win your choice of 3 fantastic paper packs

Why not take a peek at the Etsy shop PaperLozzy where you can buy the paper packs for only £1.20 each!!!

My 1st New DT Make & 1st Birthday Celebration

Hi Bloggers

I've been waiting for ages to write this post, it's my very first DT post for

I just LOVED making this as I got to play with lots of papers and stamps and do fussy cutting

I upcycled the plastic inner reel from a dst roll, wrapped it in pink ribbon, tied more ribbons in pinks & purples to the bottom and made a hanging loop at the top. I printed off several pink & purple sheets from the Paper Mixed Media collection, available here and here and stamped some Dreamees flower stamps using a black Memento ink pad in various sizes. Once I had cut them out I slightly curled them round an embossing tool, glued them together and added a co-ordinating colour pearl for the flower centre. Once the flowers were dry I used hot glue to fix them to the reel and ta-daaaaa a pretty wall hanging made from something I would have thrown away

If you are like me an have a slight paper obsession you really NEED to visit Lozzy's Etsy shop

where there are sooooooo many beautiful paper packs at just £1.20 each and each collection contain between 8 & 30 different sheets


Today it just happens to be not only my first DT post but the blogs 1st Birthday

So for our Celebration Challenge we are going to have 12 yes 12 winners. Just think all those chances to win your choice of some fabby digi paper packs. Head over to the main blog here and enter for a chance to win

My Birthday Blog Candy


Hello Bloggers

As it's my birthday on July 31st I am running a little blog candy but with a difference
I have a page on FaceBook where I sell my cards & crafts to raise funds for my local Sue Ryder Hospice which is Thorpe Hall. My aunt spent her final days there in January this year, and my children's dad spent his last days there in 2002. The staff there are the best and always helpful, considerate and can't do enough for you. They treat their patients like people and not just numbers on a to-do list.
To be in the running for a chance to win my little candy I'm nor asking for you to follow my blog or share my candy (though you can if you wish) I would like it if you would like my FaceBook page and share it on your FaceBook or blog. I know 99.9% of you will make you own crafty items but the more people I can get to view & like the page the more money I will hopefully raise

Once you have liked and shared my page if you pop back here and comment on this post that you have done so I will add your name to the draw. I will get my hubby to pull a name out the hat (more than likely a cup though) on 14th August so I will take entries until 11.59pm on 13th August GMT

Now this might be a bit cheeky but if you would not only like another entry into my blog candy draw but also help raise funds for the hospice and be in a raffle for a chance to win a crochet Teddy Bears Picnic set that I made, then there is a post pinned on my LilliRose page where for £1 a number you can be in the draw to win. There are only 20 numbers left and for every number you buy you will not only get your name into the raffle but also into the blog candy draw. Click the link below to take you to the raffle post

Raffle For ThorpeHall

I will cover the cost of posting the blog candy and the raffle prize to anywhere in the world
The blog candy is a selection of handmade paper flowers, paper straws & 2 large gem set metal buckles plus I will add some ribbons too

Thank you
