I Am A MIM Kinda Girl!!!!!

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Well I've kept myself occupied today & played in my wee hobbit. I have played outside of my usual comfort zone today though & I've not used any coloured images.
I thought I would make some LIM kind of cards................boy are these hard to do I am definately a MIM kinda gal...........More Is More!!!!!!!!! Its good to try different things & think outside the box so to speak, so I will show you what I've made for this weeks LIM Challenge......
Is this a LIM kind of card? Its about as LIM as I do lol. I used 2 card blanks but only used the front on the 2nd card & shortened it to layer on top of the original card blank. I used the 'Prim Poppy' MB die to cut out the flower shape & placed DP in between the 2 layers.

The sentiment is from a stamp in my stash which I cut out & layered on with ribbon as well. TBH the only reason I did it this way is cus when I stamped it on the card it was crooked.........honestly I wasn't drunk lol. So I made another sentiment to place over it lol.

The paper I've used is Bo Bunny 'Gabrielle', I cut the butterfly out & the rest of the sheet went in between the 2 pieces of card to show through the die-cut. I've also used a Pearl Pen to add pearl dots to the butterfly.

This one I did first but its not for any challenges & tbh I'm not sure if I like it...... The paper is 
Glitz 'Hello Friend' & I've inked the edges. I punched a few small butterflies out, inked the edges & added Stardust Stickles. I've used Die-Namics  'Rosette' die to make the rosette & added a sentiment to the centre using a stamp I got from hubster about a year ago ;0)

Bo Bunny papers - My Crafty Heart
Poppy MB Die - My Crafty Heart
Die-Namics Rosette Die - Dies To Die For

Saturated Canary Challenges DT Card

Hello all my lovelies I am so sorry I am running late with this post I've not been on my lappy all day & totally forgot.....ooops!!!

Ok so we have a yummy new challenge over at Saturated Canary & we have a different kind of challenge that we hope you will love & have fun with.
Isn't that cool, basically its the kind of things you would find in a office, staples, hole punch, paper clips, string etc etc............
Ok so my office supplies are as follows.................Paper Clips, Bulldog Clip, Staples, File Tab die, Dictionary Sentiment Stamp & Notebook Edge punch. 
Papers are Prima 'Londonerry' & I've inked the edges with Walnut Distress Ink. As always I've decorated inside & used my Bind-It-All to punch holes top & bottom & added a Tim Holtz paper clip.

The image I've used is 'Colour Me Wonderful' as I saw the pens & thought she would be perfect for this theme..........well you need pens in an office & in my opinion it should be Copics lol.

The gorgeous heart badge is from our beautiful boss Krista, its lush & now I will be buying myself lots more ;0)
I've used my 'File Tab' die, cut it out twice & layered & stapled it. I wrote 'B' on & then stamped it with the dictionary stamp 'Birthday' meaning. I cant even remember where I got this from & its the 1st time I've used it. I also added a Tim Holtz Bulldog Clip.

Added 'Lilac Raffia' across the centre & stapled it to the card.

Ingredients used................
'Colour Me Wonderful' digi image - Saturated Canary
Prima 'Londonerry' papers - My Crafty Heart
Lilac Raffia - Bunny Zoes
Flowers - WOC

Trick or Treat Maggie

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Hope you are all keeping safe & warm in this awful weather we are having in the UK. We have it bad up here in the North East, a lot of people in Morpeth have had to be evacuated from their homes due to flooding.......again the river banks have burst. We have so many roads that are causing chaos, I even went the long way round to take my youngest 6th Form today to avoid the high winds on the dual carriageway. 

Anyhoo onto my wee creation today which is not a card, yeah check me out lol. I have this plan this year that I'm going to dress Payton up for Halloween & bake cakes for the tricker treaters & give them 1 of these each...............with sweeties in :0)
We dont normally do anything for Halloween but I thought we would start a new tradition for the next generation. These are tubes I've made to pop some sweeties or choccies in. 

This one is for Payton & the others that I make will be a little bit more simpler.
The witches shoes are from my stash as is the broom.

The chocs will get replaced with choc buttons for Payton ;0)
I have attached some cord for an handle so they can carry it around. The purple tissue were what my last lot of goodies were wrapped in from Dies To Die For.

I have used the sweet 'Sitting Witch Tilda' from Magnolia. I have 4 halloween stamps & I have only ever inked up 2 which was 2 years ago, my plan is to use all 4 this
She has been coloured with copics & prisma pencil. I paper pieced her hair ribbon & the band on her hat.

I have used purple & black card from my stash, ribbon & button is also from my stash. I used a Magnolia Doo Hickey Fence to go around the bottom.
The papers is also from Magnolia, I got it from Sir Stamp A Lot 2 years ago when I got the stamps but I cant find it on their website anymore :0(

I will be doing a tutorial for these within the next week if anyone is interested in making any. They are so simple to make & hopefully the wee kiddies will love 'em.

Well thats all from me my lovelies, stay safe & thank you soooooooo much for stooping by. I'm off to some hopping around now............:0)
