First I was thrilled to win the top three over at the Sugar Bowl 
challenge. I don't enter many challenges so this was a nice surprise.

You can see my card here again if you want.

Also I was chosen by Mi Ran to be on the 

Artbymiran  design team.

This was a thrill to me and I am so looking forward
to bringing you some beautiful cards with her images.

My first challenge card will be for the 16th January.

This is going to be a great year and I am so appreciative to have all
you lovely ladies coming by to support me.

I am always very grateful to my Lord God 
for the lovely creative gift He has given me.

I am also going to have some candy for you all soon.

when I get past one hundred followers.

Have a wonderful New Year and will see you all soon.

Blessings to you all Pauline xx

I am so enjoying my Inktese pencils that I wanted to do another of these lovely little Sugar Nellies. They are just the cutest little girlies

I have put some stickles on her wings.

The little bow is from Sue Wilson. 

She is called " Little bit of gossip "  and you can find her

AND  another little bit of sugar 

I had bought this stamp months ago , but I couldn't find it anywhere.

Well it turned up , just while I was enjoying these Sugar Nellie 


She is only in rubber at this stage but you can get her
here if you love her as much as I did. 

Done with inktense again.

I have stitched around the papers with my sewing machine.

And she has got glittery wings too. 

I want to wish all my lovely followers a very Blessed Christmas

and hope that you will all take time to reflect

on what this season is all about.

Bless you all , and see you again soon.

Here is a pretty little Sugar Nellie fairy that I have coloured up with inktense pencils and some distress inks. She is called "  Angelica " 
and you can get her at Funky Kits. 

I am loving using the inktense and distress inks as you get to mix up your own colours. They are so pretty and soft looking.

                           A close up for you of the flowers.

I have used a spellbinder die for the frame.

The corner flourish is from Memory Box, one of my favourite dies.

The butterfly which I have put antanae on

is from Spellbinders as well. 

Leaves from Joy Crafts and the sentiment is from
little darlings.
I have entered her into the sugar Bowl Challenge HERE .

I hope you have enjoyed your visit here.

Thank you for coming. xx

I have got a thing about images with umbrella's so I just had to make this one up real quick. A new Ppinky dolls  stamp.

None too happy about my pics these days as they seem to be a bit blurry. I have coloured her with copics. 

           Dies used for this were , Cherry Lyn frame, magnolia fern
umbrella was sizzix small dies, seam binding ribbon and two umbrella charms. 

Colours used were R 59,56,29,22 for the reds and RV, 34,32,11 
for the umbrella. 

Thank you for stopping by and leaving me your kind comments.

                                       Till next time , keep crafting. xx

ArtbyMiran has released a couple of new digis too. This one is actually called "Bedtime" but I thought she would make a get better soon card.

I have coloured her with distress inks. She came up well I thought, and I am getting better at them.

Colours were Victorian velvet for her dress, and weathered wood for the blues.

I have entered her in the Artbymiran challenge .

You can find her shop at Etsy  HERE.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. 

Till next time keep crafting xx


Sugar Nellie bought out a couple of these floral ladies a while back, and they has such pretty faces I thought I would do one. 

I have coloured her with copics. 

The tag is a Magnolia die, and little hearts Memory boc dies.

You can get this image over at Funky Kits.

Colours used for her hair were,

E02,07,08,09, E29.

I hope you like her. 

Thursday, December 11, 2014


Awhile ago I won a few digis from Artbymiran , and wanted to get started colouring them up. Here is the first and she is called " Tulipa "  
I have been practicing my hair technique's and after many attempts I think this came out the best. 

Her girls are so unique and always have special eyes.

You can get them  HERE .

I have used copics colours for her dress
RV 91,93,95,99
and the tulips, V91,93,95,99

And her hair I have used e 57,59,42,53.

The border across the bottom are some new spellbinders
dies I got called A2 Scalloped borders one.

The sentiment is from Little Darlings. 

Tuesday, December 9, 2014


The greens make a nice change and this is a Sarah Kay stamp I have had for a while. You can still pick them up if you look around.

I have done this with distress inks, and a grey inktense pencil for the watering can.

The flowers from Wild Orchid crafts.
Sentiment from Little Darlings.


                 The corner I got off the latest Tattered Lace magazine.

Frame is a Cherry Lyn. Joy crafts leaves flourish, and the other one is from memory box.

Colours used were . Old Paper, peeled paint, Tattered Rose , vintage photo and milled lavender. One thing about distress inks is that you dont use a million colours. Best to put all your copic techniques out of your mind when using them as well. 


Time for another Inky Impressions DT card. This one is called 

Marleigha's Reindeer"   and you can find her here.

The theme was " calendar "  so I have put a 
date sentiment on it.

Once again I have used some die cuts my Friend Deb
sent me. The iceicles  and the tree, ( which is really silver " 
and the snowflakes.

I cant imagine what it must be like to have a snow
covered Christmas .

I have coloured her with copics.

Hop over to their challenge blog and see all the other lovely cards
made by the team.  

Thank you for coming to my blog
I hope you have enjoyed your time spent here.!!


Not sure if I mentioned that Chrishthani over at Ppinkydolls asked me if I would like to be on her colourist team, where she gets us to colour up her new digi's for her Etsy store. 

Well I thought you might like to have a little peek at a couple I have done so far. 

Ain't they just the cutest. 

You can get them HERE.


Time for a little Candibeen.This one is called " Izzy's bumblebee"

I have coloured her with distress inks. ( I am getting better ) 

                     They are such sweet stamps and will be doing
                             a lot more of these I think. 

The lovely sentiment stamp is from Little Darlings as is the Candibeen.

   I do hope you like her. Thanks for popping in to see my blog.

I would so much love to be a part of the Noor Design DT team over at the UK shop. Tracy has done a wonderful job of promoting their gorgeous dies. So I am going to put this card in to apply.

I have used two Noor dies on this card. The lovely border flourish down the side , and a leaf die. 

And a second card just for fun.

It would be a delight to be a part of this wonderful team.

I have been waiting ages to post this card on my blog. A friend asked me if I would like to be her card buddy , which means I make her a card and she makes me one. So this is what I did for her. She loved this Sugar Nellie image called Victoria.

I made the little envelope and stamped a whimsy tag on it

Well here is a card made with a Ppinkydolls image. I love her sitting on this fish. Her stamps are just so different and very unique. They are a pleasure to colour and make into cards.

Who would have thought to put orange and pink together. Well here it is. Something a little different. I have used an Elizabeth Bell stamp from Whimsy. I love their rubber stamps, you always get such a lovely crisp image with them.She is called Sunnydee and Sunflowers.

I got a new paper pad from Kaisercraft and wanted to use it. Called Tigerlilly and is all orange and pinks. Not exactly colours I would put together , but it came out quite nicely.

The sentiment ticket is Whimsy as well , the die with matching stamps. 
I would love to be a part of their design team , as they are a name that has always been associated with lovely stamps and dies. 
There is always something from Whimsy on my cards. 
To be a part of their team , to make cards with their new releases would be very exciting. And to be on a team with such wonderful accomplished card makers would be a treasure.

Here is a little close up for you.

All my flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. 

I was so thrilled with these Whimsy Stamps I just want to remind you of how nice they are.

I have made two cards for the opportunity to be a part of the Whimsy team. Here is the second one.

This one is called Rowan Fairy. She is just sooo sweet.
You can find her here.

And a third just for fun.
