Whiff of something pretty

I confess, i pinched this whiff of joy stamp out of Amber's rack last night, yes im hanging my head in shame. Our Stevie won this at Port Sunlight in May and gave it to Amber,can you believe it had never been opened until last night-that child has too much craft stuff!

Are you drooling over my doily flowers yet? I nearly tore the posties arm off on Saturday morning to get the parcel off him,sorry Ralph! 
The paper is from My Minds Eye as is the sentiment. The image is coloured with Prisma pencils-im getting better at the skin tones i think.

Sassy choc box


I wanted to show all the angles of this,so i had to take more photos than usual-i hope i dont bore you with them!
I wanted to try one these box's  after seeing a tutorial courtesy of the lovely Val,but i wanted to make it my own-so i changed the draw layout a bit.  As in pics, it has a front draw and 2 side draws, this is my first attempt so im quite pleased with it.
The image is from Sassy Studio, this is part of my prize for winning their challenge about 3 weeks ago-unfortunately i am still waiting for the other one and for my birthday freebie as promised on their website,but im sure they will sort it out when they are ready.
Image is coloured with prisma pencils,and glittered here and there.
The patterned paper is from a huge papermania collection that i have neglected a bit.
The flowers are from Wild Orchid, pins and pearls from my stash.

Sentiment is from TLC, i used tag cutting die and distressed with dye ink, then edged with crystal glitter.

I made the tiny handles using metallic beads and some fine wire (you cant see the wire inside cause i covered it neatly)

I lined the draws with pearlised paper punched with a Martha punch.
(i said there was loads of pics didnt i!)

I think i covered everything!

Having to drag myself out of bed this morning!


Well im not getting back into the morning routine at all! Much better when the schools were off. As you can see I got halfway out of bed this morning and then completely changed my mind, mum and those pesky kids have to get up and go out in the rain BUT I DONT!
Wake me up with my breakfast in an hour mum.
Love from Milly

Miss Electra and a quick candy reminder



This is a Kenny K image i bought yestereday,i thought it was about time i had some of his.  I have coloured using a combo of Promarkers and prismas-the hair has driven me mad,i just had to walk away in the end and vow to practise more.
The 'mirror' is an embossing folder from Quikcuts,i just drew over the raised pattern with versamark pen and left it.  The punch is of course a Martha,the swirl and flutterby dies are from Marianne designs. 
I made the tickets with the help of MCS,i then inked the edges with Chipped saphire distress ink. Tuille net and black rose from my stash-not easy to stick net is it!
I will add this to some challenges later today.

Quick reminder, i said if i got to 60 followers i would sort some candy,i have the 60 so im on to it today.

Just had to show you this

This is our Saphy, full title Sapphire Marigold Simms.  We adopted her a few weeks ago but this is actually the 1st time she has sat still long enough to take her photo properly!  Does she look like an adorable little darling or what-WRONG WRONG WRONG!! she is a naughty little girl. She has chewed the stairs in her lovely big expensive house/hutch,she has chewed through the wire mess to escape from her play run,she has chewed the side of my shed,and on one of the few occasions she has been let loose in the house she has completely severed the power cord to Amber's lecky blanket!   She is never going to be a house rabbit like Milly, but we love her just the same. (until she chews any of my craft stuff,then im afraid she is headed for the slow cooker) Only kiddin Amber. xx

Another new idea!


Gill from Little Claire sent us DT girlies a new little stamp the other day,i wanted to do something different with it so here it is!
An ATC easel desk calender-well some desks are smaller than others you know!
The stamp actually has 2 owl squares,i just used 1 for this. The punch is from Martha- i had fun making a border punch go around corners!
