More Hands Make Light Work...

Morning Sugar Fans... 

Hope you're all well - and for those that aren't... hope you're better soon!

Christine here today with my DT card...  and today I've used another fairy (hmmmm I can see a pattern forming here - would anyone guess I liked fairies?)

I've used 'More Hands Make Light Work' - available HERE from the store at Funky Kits.

She came in digi format, and was a joy to colour (as are all the fairies).  Now.... I could tell you that I wanted to just focus on the image by not putting any more details... but that would be a lie as I just ran out of time so had to throw this together quickly!  And I could tell you that it's perfect... but it isn't, as I put the little postmark stamp upside down!  I mean... who ever heard of being able to put a circle 'upside down'?  Hmmmf!  But I had no time to even cover it with a snowflake, so sorry, it stays! LOL!

More details can be found on my blog HERE - but basically I used my Copics to colour..  an LOTV Festive Trimmings 8 x 8 pad of Christmas paper.. a Martha Stewart snowflake border punch... a Lil' Inkers Stitched Square Die.. and a little postmark stamp from LOTV.

Do drop by tomorrow for more inspiration..

Little Angel...

Good morning sugar fans, Fi here with your Wednesday posting!

Hope you are well!

Now I am sharing this card with you, my lovely friend asked me to make a Thinking of You card for one of her friends whos daughter sadly passed away. I thought I would use this lovely Diane Duda stamp which I think is just so perfect, sadly it's not available but I needed to share it but there are still lots of other Diane Duda stamps available from Funky Kits.

I have used digi papers from The Sweet Shoppe and layered them onto bazzill card.....I added some stitching to each of the layers....yes no doodles!!  The cloud and love heart also came with the digi pack...aren't they perfect?

The flowers are a mix of rolled flowers from die-namics and a couple of flowers which I had bought and I added a couple of teeny weeny butterflies too.

Pop back tomorrow for some more inspiration.

SOS - pulling pints

Good morning Sugar Addicts, the sun is shining and it's a fine day here in the north east of Scotland.
This week has been manic, my brain is mince after all the paperwork, licences, contracts and forms to be filed. But we got there and with only two members of staff I was left short this week.

I had to fill a few shifts myself. Working in a lounge bar is something I did for a very short time a long long time ago. The drinks were not the issue, as most folks will tell you where to find thier favourite tipple. The big culture shock came with the language in the public bar. I did have to remove my youngest from hovering.

Today I have open house for close friends, a wee look about and an exchange of ideas before I start knock the place to bits. Still struggling to get someone to fit a wood burning stove, all the local business as booked up into next year. It was the one thing I promised myself after the last two premises have not been what you would call cozy.

I had better have a quick run around and to some housework before heading down the cost. Even hubby is coming down today to see what's what. There are no lodgers in at the weekend so it's also time to change around the rooms. Making beds was never my strong point. I'm Learning lots of new skills in this job.

Have a peaceful weekend


Welcome our guest - Annette

I'm a blogger and papercraft addict. I started cardmaking by making my wedding invitations in 2005 but since then I've made so many friends in the blogging community, and leaned so much. My creations and style have changed immensely since those early days! Sugar Nellies have become a firm favourite of mine. I particularly love the Fairy Glenn and Furry Friends images, but have recently fallen for the Scrapberrys too. There are so many gorgeous designs to choose from, in both rubber or digi. I'm so proud to be given the opportunity to guest design. I hope my creations inspire you to check out the gorgeous images for yourself. Happy crafting.
I love anything cute, so these images are right up my street! The furry friends are just adorable and are fun to colour. I felt they deserved to be the focal point, so kept my layout incredibly simple (but managed to sneak in some pink!). I tried to create some candle light on the kitty's face using a shimmer pen. The Christmas card image reminded me of Mary Poppins with all the animals crowding round the girlie. I opted for a non traditional colour scheme of Mint Chocolate (with some pink thrown in here too). I love the squirrels running around her feet.

Thanks again for letting me play along.
Netty's Cards -

Ssshhhhh don't say it out loud

But it's defiantly looking like the season for all things crafty to move up a notch. 
Cards, calendars, gifts and home decorations are being pinned for more and more ideas at this time of years. 

As I browser the web it's nice to find something a little different. I'm taking a trip to visit Debbie and Tom for thanksgiving and need to plan my pressies in advance. I have several home decor ideas which will go well on there new home, but I also thought that this would be ideal.

This would give them a lovely selection of decorations for their tree or even a twig branch in a vase should look lovely with some classic hanging decorations. I might have a rummage around the house and turn something into a Scottish heirloom. Might even throw in some tiny toys, those things that your forever standing on in the kids bedroom. I'm sure I could find some of Debbie's old junk about.
A little ribbon and wire, a few beads and I think I could come up with something in a neutral tone that she could put away every year and remember a little of past times.

That's all for me today.
Hope you have a great weekend
