This months Craft Stamper magazine came with this awesome little owl stamp from Sugar Nellie
I have water coloured the images, along with adding some gel pen in the hearts and a couple of googly eyes. The paper I have used is Sandylion One of a Kind pink, ribbon from Anita's range and some peel off spots. The sentiment is from Designer Digitals.

I thought these would make wonderful little notecards so decided to make a little box and fill it with some of these and the envelopes. The box is made using chocolate, cream and pink cardstocks, Sandylion paper, woodware daisy punch flowers and cream ribbon.

The week has flown by again so quickly. I have had little time to do any crafting for fun - I had a commisson for ten cards - mostly fathers day and this little cowboy on the right had his 5th birthday on it was a birthday party and tons of baking to do. I also decorated 36 sacks for the cowboys and cowgirls......but didnt take a picture :(

Woo hoo - Betty the maid! This is another Sneak Peak from Owl Whimsy's forthcoming Betty range. Well she could be anybody really, I just thought she would make a great maid. There are some cracking images in this set and they are definitely fun to play with. I have used the striped paper from my stash, the black designs on the paper are peel offs, which I coloured with a black sharpie pen. The sentiment "Maid for you" I wrote in my not so great hand writing. The things to do list I generated on the computer, but the clipboard came from Digifree. I have coloured Betty with water colours and given her some gel pen stockings! The chair is from the Magnolia Tilda range, which I stamped and watercoloured.

This weeks challenge from Dare U 2 Digistamp is a fabulous sketch. As a new design team member of Owl Whimsy Digistamps, I thought I would use this weeks FREEBIE (yes she is free) from Here (make sure you play along too - details here). This girls is called Suzie Q Diva - and comes in a set of six - all with real Diva attitudes and poses. I have been hunting through my masses of craft stash and found these papers, along with the pink cardstock on which I used the keepsake romance board to scallop the edges and a single hole punch for the holes. Green cardstock, heart and sentiment from my stash and the pink dots are sherbert pips from craftwork cards. Suzie Q Diva has been coloured with watercolour pencils and a gel pen for her shoes.
