Nose in Book from Twistoon

I coloured this cutie up a while ago and decided it was time she made it onto a card. This is "Nose in Book" and you can also get a boy version if you prefer. 

I created the red scrunched flowers to tie in with her glasses and laces.

I think it's time to do a bit of reading myself now....

Until Next Time

Christmas Crackers

I promise this is my last Christmas in July card.....for now ;)

I couldn't resist playing with these cuties from Twistoon Digi Stamps - and they come in a set of 4! It was supposed to only be 3 images but one of the boys lost his beard in the "cracked" image set so now you can choose if you want him beardless or not. You can find the Stan and George Cracker set HERE
I created a slimline card and added a little explosion to the background - those boys do love to do things to the extreme ;)

Until Next Time
Happy Colouring

Toyshop Helper by Mo Manning

This adorable little guy is called Toyshop Helper and I may have had him coloured up for a while just waiting for the right time to post and luckily I can use Christmas in July to justify posting him now. That cheeky little face is just so sweet!

I hope you like him, and until next time...

Christmas in July with Twistoon Digi Stamps

 It's always a bit of fun to create card for Christmas in July for me given Christmas is my favourite time of the year! Here are a couple I did using images from Twistoon Stamps.

This first one uses one of Lisa's adorable Gnomes - this is "George Christmas Tree" and you can find him HERE. The word dies I used are from La-La Land Crafts.

This fun lovin' gal is called "Wreath Head" and you can find her HERE. I wish you could see how sparkly this is IRL with her glittered stockings and trees, and the sparkly baubles. 

Let's hope we can all feel a little festive and sparkly this July.

The World Needs a Hug

This gorgeous image is called "Hug" and is by Mo Manning. It really spoke to me because with the way the world is at the moment I think we could all do with a hug, especially after the last couple of years dealing with Covid and all that has taken away from us all! But this isn't just about the pandemic. The colours I used are important - they pay homage to Ukraine as well as to the BLM movement. Let's not forget that these are children depicted and with the recent school massacre in Uvalde I want to honour the victims there too.

I don't usually use my craft to showcase global issues - but there comes a time where you need to get the feelings out in any way you can!

BIG HUGS everyone
