One Today! Pink girly card (All Dressed Up image)

Hi everyone,

Sorry I've not posted for (what seems like..) ages, we took our products (Flourish with a Bling) to a craft show last weekend and I have just not had any time to create until now. 

I desperately wanted to get this one posted as All Dressed Up have a fantastic blog hop going on and this was a lovely free image they gave everyone for this challenge (which ends in 12 hours or so ahhhhh!!! lol).

I just picked up these lovely bright papers at the craft show and couldn't wait to use them. I cut out the banners from the patterned paper behind the image to add them over the top of the top banner so they have a 3D effect as they were too flat after I added the flowers. Hope you like it.


We have brand new flowers in a rainbow of colours at Flourish with a Bling and to celebrate we are selling them at only $2 a pack (rrp $3) for this month only. Click on our name to go to our online store and check out all of our gorgeous products.

Shabby Chic Umbrella Birthday Girl (The Greeting Farm image)




Hi Crafty Friends,

I haven't created a card with this image from The Greeting Farm for a long time so thought now Autumn challenges were about, this little girl with her umbrella is perfect for this time of year. 

I have been raiding any old clothes for zippers at the moment and this is the first time I've used one but I like it. I tore the paper so it kind of (hopefully hehe) looks like the zip goes up and down. I have used pearls and flourishes from Flourish with a Bling. Can you see the little kitty cat under the sentiment, isn't he sweet, I bought him at a craft show.



(my first card created with this image - the tree, leaves, cloud, raindrops and toadstools are all from Flourish with a Bling)

Best Wishes Red Headed girl card (Hannah Lynn image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I love these images by Hannah Lynn, they are so much fun to colour. You can find all her images at Crafts and Me.

Lovely Kathy S left a comment asking about what copic colours I used on my recent Art By Miran image which gave the girl a dark brown/reddish hair colour. I can't remember so I coloured this image last night so I could write down these colours in the hope you like them too. Here are the colours I used: E49, R59, R39, R37 and R35.

I have used one of Flourish with a Bling's brand new exclusive flowers, I think it matches her hair perfectly. I have also used pearls and leaves from FWAB too.

A Magical Day easel card (All Dressed Up image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Here's one more cute Halloween card and this easel card has been created using a gorgeous little image and sentiment from All Dressed Up. I added a little bat sticker and doodles some stitching around, I used some large die cut shapes for the top of the card and a wrought iron fence die too. This paper I have had almost since I started crafting I think which was about 10 years ago! Glad I kept it as I think it goes well with the sweet image.

Trick or Treat cute witch (DigiStamp Boutique image)

Hi crafty friends,

I'm a guest designer at DigiStamp Boutique for a few weeks and I am happy as can be about it, they have such gorgeous images. Here is a sweet little witch from DigiStamp Boutique called Witchy Isla.

I embossed the orange and black triangles but you can't really see it on the black. I doodled the little black dots around the image and card. 

The gorgeous orange flower is from Flourish with a Bling, I chopped it up with my scissors to give it a "spooky" look hehe. The flowers are brand new and exclusive to Flourish with a Bling and this month as an opening special they are $2AUD a pack (4 flowers in these packs, rrp will be $3AUD).

Happy Birthday Mermaid card (The Paper Shelter image)

Hi crafty friends,

Me again hehe, and this time I have gone against all the Autumn and Halloween themed papers and opted to do one last Summer card (although here in Oz we're coming up to Summer soon so maybe I'll do more in a couple of months' time).


I have used a sweet mermaid from The Paper Shelter, I have had her coloured for ages as I had some papers I was inspired to use with her but it had black in them and in the end I have only used the polka dot/floral paper on the card! Sometimes it works that way doesn't it where you're moving everything about but it still doesn't look right and you have to start from scratch. I'm now happy with how it turned out.

I have used pearls, the lovely sun and you can just see some of the orange puffy flourish I have used under the netting, these items are all from Flourish with a Bling

Wickedly Stripey Halloween (Sassy Studio Designs image)

Hi crafty friends,

I hope you are all about to have a great weekend.

I have a few cards to share this weekend, this my first and it's unusual for me as I haven't used any patterned papers but they are all textured. The sassy witch is from none other than Sassy Studio Designs, I used a chipboard cobweb and spider (inked them and sparkled the spider). The sentiment was done on my computer using a spooky font and green ink.
