Blogging elsewhere today...


I thought I'd pop by today to let you know that I'm on the Altenew blog today focusing on the fabulous Halftone Holidays stamp set. I adore the Halftone series of stamps Рthey're so clever with their oh-so-easy-to-achieve ombr̩ effects. Simply ink up the stamps et voila! Ombr̩, baby!

Sneak peek

I'm sharing three cards I've made featuring this stamp set over on my blog post. It would be lovely to see you there if you're interested in taking a peek at the rest of the my cards. I can promise a traditional Christmas colour combo, sparkles and clean designs. :)

Happy weekend!

Altenew & Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog hop!

'tis the season

Happy Friday! I'm kicking off the weekend here with a wintry card as part of a fun blog hop as Altenew teams up with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

You should have hopped along here from Stephanie Schutze. If you haven't then be sure to start out at Altenew HQ as there's prizes to be won along the way!

The people at Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L kindly sent us some super-sticky goodies to play with and I immediately fell for these cool 3D Foam Snowflakes. All they need is a sprinkle of glitter to bring them to life!

'tis the season close up

I paired a snowflake with a sentiment from Altenew's new Halftone Holidays stamp set to complete this simple, easy design. It's definitely my kind of design when it comes to Christmas cards: quick and easy with a touch of sparkle. :)

As part of the blog hop, Altenew are also offering FREE U.S shipping on retail orders placed today (November 20th). Simply enter the code 'ALTENEWFRIDAY' at the checkout.

Right, I best not keep you as there's some serious blog hopping to be done.

A winner will be selected from the comments left on the blog hop so be sure to leave yours by Monday November 23 11.59pm EST and the winners will be announced the the Altenew blog and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog on November 25th.

25 Days of Christmas Tags!


Happy weekend! I'm joining in with the fabulous 25 Days of Christmas Tags event today and representing Clearly Besotted with today's super-quick (minus drying time for Glossy Accents!) tag.


It's the fifth anniversary of this fantastic idea of Tracey McNeely's which showcases 25 days of wonderful tags with a whole host of companies sponsoring the event and plenty of prizes to be won. Check out the full deets here.


My little tag was originally created for Christmas, but I guess it could actually be used all year round. It's a tag for all seasons! I decided to keep things small, simple and sweet for my tag so I used the new Tiny Tags Die Collection and paired the stitched heart from the Stitched Mittens stamp set with a sentiment from the From Our Home stamp set. It's a real mix 'n' match of Clearly Besotted goodies!

I couldn't resist giving the heart on my tag the Glossy Accents treatment. I love shiny things! :)


Don't forget to check out the tags from the rest of the Clearly Besotted peeps over at Tracey's; I've had a sneak peek and they're stunning (I'd expect nothing less!). Don't forget, there's prizes to be won too. :)

Time for me to scoot now. I've got a mountain of things to do this weekend and speaking of weekends, did you know that there's only six weekends left until Christmas. Crazy! I better get a move on and get myself organised. Eeek!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
