SheepSki Designs Freebie

Hi Followers,

Today you will find a SheepSki Designs Freebie Giveaway from Andrea over at Kit and Clowder Facebook Group and hopefully it will be available for a few days more. 

Here is my inspiration:

I wanted to do something different with Jo's Daffodils, so I googled and came up with this - a free Daffodil Day Popcorn Box Template, just perfect for what I wanted.  This container will come in very handy, no matter what I put in it, I am thinking great for when I pick coloured pencils or Copics for a project.

See you next time,

Stella Says Sketch Challenge 803

I am happy to tell you that this is my first project as a DT member for Bugaboo Stamps.  After doing 4 months as a Guest Designer, I was asked if I would like to stay on and I jumped at the chance.  Thank you to Jodie, Tammy and the team for the opportunity to show off Bugaboo Stamps.

Here is my project for the Sketch Challenge.  I have used the Har Repotter brave one image for this birthday card and I know exactly who I am giving it to - my gorgeous grand-daughter, Charlotte.

I hope to see your entries in the Sketch Challenge.  They are the easiest to do, someone else has done most of the thinking for you lol.

Bye for now

Audrey and Peonies

The theme for February's SheepSki Designs Blog Challenge is "Flowers and/or Hearts" and I just could not resist making a birthday card combining Peonies and some digital paper I bought from Etsy last year.  Why did I splurge on the digital paper and clipart of Audrey Hepburn, because I just love her style and sophistication and of course her acting ability.

I have used a square pearlised card, mauve cardstock to mat the digital paper, putting the peonies inside a vase from my Polkadoodles digital folder, the hearts on the front are from Julia Spiri's clipart and the digital sentiment is from Graciellie Design.  I have used foam tape on the vase and peonies and used Diamond Stickles on the peonies surrounding Audrey as well as the Peonies image.

I am very happy with this card and hope you like it too.

Don't forget when you go shopping in the SheepSki Designs Etsy shop, use this code to get an extra 10% discount from Andrea and the team.


Hope to see your entry in the February Blog Challenge.  Bye for now, see you next month or on our Blog - I might be lucky enough to comment on your entry!

Turner Syndrome Awareness Blog Hop

Hello Blogging Friends!!

Turner Syndrome is a genetic disorder where a female is born with only one X chromosome, instead of two, leaving her with life-long medical issues and learning disabilities. This condition occurs one in 2,500 female births worldwide, but is more common among pregnancies that do not survive to full term. That is why Turner Syndrome Females are considered MIRACLES!

Prize Winners will be announced on February 15, 2020.

Thirty-six caring Sponsors and five DT Members have partnered with us to bring Turner Syndrome Awareness to the Public. For details on how you might win any of these fabulous prizes, please see Lori's TS home page. Thanks for learning About Turner Syndrome

Seven talented and caring designers are offering prizes on their personal blogs as well:

My TS related project is inspired by the TSA official color board:

This is the front of my square card.  I have used grape purple cardstock and used a couple of square dies to cut out the front of the card and the designer paper, exposing "Bubble Dreams", a SheepSki Designs image available in Andrea's Etsy shop.The chipboard butterfly and sentiment was from my stash.  I think it was a Scrap FX chipboard that I have had in my stash for years just waiting for the perfect project.  I painted the chipboard with a lime green sparkle pen and added an oval sentiment supplied by Lori.

 I decided to embellish the inside of the card too.  I added Flutterby butterflies from SheepSki Designs (free on the SheepSki Designs Blog Challenge website, just look for the Freebies tab), patterned paper and another oval sentiment from Lori.  The hearts, extra bubbles and the Butterfly Kisses ticket, I found by searching my digi stash.

I hope you like my card and visit the other volunteers' blogs to participate in this Hop.  Our sponsors have been wonderful too, supporting Lori with prizes for participants.

Turners Syndrome is a terrible thing to happen to a girl and I was shocked to read this on Lori's Blog.

There are many things I did not know about Turners Syndrome.  Just head over to My Turner Syndrome Journey and leave me a comment  telling me what you have learnt about TS that you didn't know.

Please visit the "It's A Girl Thing" Turner Syndrome Awareness Blog Hop 2020  page to become eligible for prizes.

Good luck and thank you for visiting my blog.

Friday's Freebie 31st January 2020

This Friday's Freebie at Bugaboo Stamps is Winter Kidz Girl and will be available here for a week starting the last day of January. Can you believe it - one month of 2020 gone already.

If I fall in love with an image, sometimes I just want to keep the project for myself.  That is why I made an ATC for me!  I love rabbits and have had a few as pets in my younger years, even after I married.

Here is the ATC for my collection.  I used a chipboard ATC from my stash that I had already made a background for - purple of course, my favourite colour.  I coloured the image with Copics and did a search for a suitable klovable quote about rabbits.  I didn't even look at my stash of ATC backgrounds until I was ready to mount it on the ATC and I found one straight away, and guess what more shades of purple!  Well what a surprise NOT!

I hope you like my ATC.  See you again soon.
