Picket Post Lane...

- Good morning Sugar Peeps -
It's Thursday and my turn to share my bit of sugary heaven.
I thought for this week I'd use another one of our new 'Furry Friends' digi stamps, I can't help myself I just think they're really cute.  This gorgeous stamp is called 'Picket Post Lane' and it's available from Funkykits in digital format. I know some of the DT have already made some wonderful cards using this cutie, but I thought I would be different and make a piece of home d├ęcor.
I bought an 8" x 10" inexpensive frame from a local discount store, and simply printed out a large copy of  the image onto watercolour card making sure it fit inside the frame and the mount area. I used distressing pens and inks to colour the image, but to add a little more depth I also used a few pencils. To finish it off I added a little glitter to the parcels and envelope.
For more details of everything I used check my blog HERE
Don't forget about our 'Furry Friends' competition - we're offering a fabulous prize of a Kit & Clowder colouring class to the winner. 
So come on and get entering, all the details can be found on the 'Competition' tab at the top of the page.
 Thank you for dropping by - don't forget to call by tomorrow for more sweet inspiration.

Waiting for you...

Good morning Sugar fans, it's Fi here with your Wednesday post!

|I thought I would share with you a wee card using one of the digis from the latest collection of furry friends which you can buy from Funky Kits.

For today's card I have used Waiting for You and coloured him with spectrum noirs...really basic as there isn't much to colour with these digis...so easy!!  The papers are Fancy Pants Park Bench which I layered onto bazzill card and then doodled around the edges.  I added a wonky scalloped edge, a sunshine and a few die cut butterflies....oh and some glitter!!

Pop back tomorrow for another wee SN post!!


Fairy Birthday....

Good Morning everyone!

Yahoo...the schools are back!! lol! Well in Soctland anyway!! As you read this i will have put my youngest two out the door and on my way to see my gorgeous Neice, Ava, as she starts her first day of school. 

So, I decided to use one of the gorgeous Scrapberry Stamps today. This one is called Fairy Birthday
You can buy her from the Funky Kits Store!

I have coloured my fairy using Promarkers and Polychromos Pencils. My papres are My Minds Eye, Lost and Found. I used my Tim Holtz Rosettes Die adding a little Marianne Design Flourish.
I added a few buttons with twine, lace, ribbon and some little pearls to finish my card.

Another quick reminder about the "Furry Friends" competition that is running through-out this month. Check out the "Competition Tab" HERE!
The prize is a colouring class from Kit and Clowder!! Wow!!

Thanks for stopping by! Fi will be here tomorrow with some more inspiration!

Good morning everyone, I hope this week has been peaceful for you.
Not so much here in the NE Scotland with floods again proving once again that no one can control the weather.
But a little sunshine in the week came in the form of an email from a stamp company that I have been admiring for a while.mi am a terrible stamp snob and rarely does art catch my eye. But these did and I am delight to pre warn you that Sugar a Nellie have struck up a new partnership that will bring you a small range of both rubber and digital stamps from a popular UK company.
Bet that's got you thinking!

For now all I have left to say to you today is
Come on girls, I know your sitting on those new FURRY FRIENDS digital stamps! put them to good use and make a card which could win you a great prize. The odds are in your favour!

It amazing to see the before and after picture of those doing the Ktt & Clowder classes.
No need to save up for a class, we are giving away one class of your choice to the winner of our competition. You have to be in it to win it.
Have a great weekend

Some Pippi love

Good morning Sugar fans, it's Fi here with your Saturday post!

It's another wild and windy day here in sunny Scotland but there's nothing better than some sugar inspiration to get you started for the weekend!

It's now been a couple of weeks since the latest launch of those furry friends and they have proved to be a big hit....we love to see your cards so remember to share them with us on our Facebook page and there's still time to enter the competition...all the details are on the competition tab up above.  So pop over to Funky Kits and see what goodies there is on offer!!

For todays card I have used Pippi...she was feeling a bit neglected and I coloured her with spectrums and shaded with come polychromos.  The papers are digi papers from the Sweet Shoppe and I just love these ones they are called Life Is.  I layered the papers onto card and doodled the edges.  I added some wee pearls to the corners and finished with a bow and acrylic flower....I actually bought that little flower on my visit up to Elgin to the Paper Boutique.

Pop back tomorrow for another wee SN post!!
