Rag Doll from Bloobel


Yay I finally got this cutie coloured up and put on a card. This is Rag Doll from Bloobel Stamps and she's a steal at only US$1. I love the quirky images from Bloobel - in case you haven't noticed ;) 
I made a quick and easy shaker card which adds to the fun of the image.

Light Up Gingerbread House


As soon as I saw Betty's Gingerbread House from Simply Betty Stamps I knew I wanted to play with my chibitronic LEDs again and give it a light up window....those elves have orders to get done for Christmas and now there's no 'low light' excuses. 


It's such fun and reminds me of my high school days making circuits in my electronics classes. My Favorite Things have a great YouTUBE clip on how to 'light up' your creations HERE.

Downunder Elf Debbie in Non-Traditional Colours


There are 18 fun new Christmas images from Simply Betty Stamps in the NEW section of the store. The whole DT have been turned into Santa's helpers and this is 
Downunder Elf Debbie. It's great to have a Christmas image perfect for those of us who live in countries where it's hot at Christmastime. Today I've coloured her in less traditional colours but with a little hint of the traditional.

Along with all the DT elves there are also some stand alone Christmas elements and I'm having fun playing with one or 2 at the moment.

Challenge me a Christmas Card - with Michelle Lupton & Friends


My friend Michelle Lupton is running a Christmas card challenge with friends and today I am playing along with her. Our challenge today is "Deck the Halls", you can check out Michelle's card for the challenge HERE.


I chose this gorgeous image from Teddy Bo to use because to me "decking the halls" is all about decorating the house up for Santa's visit, so I felt this image fit the bill. I also added some "boughs of holly"to the top corner as per the line in the Christmas carol. Sadly the Teddy Bo shop has shut down but I love the images I have and will keep playing with them.


Just for a bit of fun I also decided to experiment with my new chibitronics LED light up system to add a "glow" in the fireplace. The large sparklet acts as the switch to light up the LED when it's pressed.

Halloween Mug Swap Reveal Day & Blog Hop


It's time for the reveal of the Halloween Mug Swap organised by Betty from Simply Betty Stamps. We were given this fabulous digi called Witchy Brew to create a card to send to our swap partner. We were also asked to send along a Halloween themed mug and some other Halloween goodies. This is the card and mug I sent to my swap partner Lea Wilkin.


I created the decal on the mug using water slide transfer paper and this tutorial. I checked with Betty BEFORE doing this as I needed to check that it didn't go against her TOU. It's always a good idea to do this with these sort of techniques. I finished off with some glitter silver vinyl lettering I cut using my silhouette to personalise the mug. 


And below is the absolutely GORGEOUS card and mug I received from Lea and I want to thank her publicly for my fabulous parcel. I'm not going to show the goodies than came along with it as I don't want to make anyone jealous :) , although the 2 little rats were a fun part of the parcel, making me jump as they flew out of the pack as I was unwrapping it LOL. 


Check out the other blogs participating in the swap by following the Blog Hop list below....
