Peek a boo birthday...

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

Today I am sharing with you one of my favourite stamps and coloured in my favourite colour combination..this little cutie is available from the Funky Kits!

For todays card I have used Peek a Boo Birthday and coloured her with copics this time. The papers are digi papers from The Sweet Shoppe...I love these ones, they are just my kind of colours.  I layered them onto card and added some pearls made with my pearl pen to the corners of the layers.  I finished with a mix of handmade a pre made flowers.

The Best Day Ever....

Hi everyone, its Lynne here today! I hope your having a great week. Can you believe that we are nearing the end of August already, this has been such a quick year and Christmas is coming fast!! 

So, today i  have made a card using the gorgeous "Best Day Ever" digital stamp. She is soon to be retired so if you want this cutie you will have to get her very soon from the Funky Kits Store!

I used Promarkers and Polychromos Pencils to colour. The papers are Floral Pavillion from First Edition. The flower is a cuttlebug die paired with Marianne Design flourishes. The butterflies are Memory Box delightful Butterflies Die and i have used some lace, a little bow and added some gems. I have also used glossy accents with Glamour dust to add some sparkle.

Please feel free to pop over to my blog HERE!

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 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!!
