It’s Time For A Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

Hello everyone! And a very happy Friday to you all!

Only two more Fridays to go and it’s Christmas!!

(I know right.. Has it crept up on you too this year? Tee hee.)

Today is the start of the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, and I am very proud to be a part of this for My Whimsical Little World. Smiles.

This sweet little snowman is called Warm Wishes and you can find him in the MWLW Etsy Store.

To bring him to life, I used my Copics in these shades:-

Scarf.

Hat & Coffee Cup.

Snowman.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Nose.

My card/ornament I created with this fabulous Bow Card Template available from Sandra’s Scrapshop. It’s the first time I have used it and I LOVE it!!

To get the sparkle on the snow,  I used my Frantage Shaved Ice.  And on the blue card around the snowman, I used my Frantage Shabby Blue Embossing Powder.

This is truly so glittery in real life.

Here is a picture of it on my Fireplace.. It makes a great ornament. Smiles.

The large blue and white snowflakes at the top, I cut with my Silhouette Cameo.

Hello everyone!
I’m here today with a trip down memory lane. Well for me at least!  Smiles.

This is a brand new image from the fabulously talented Paola of My Whimsical Little World, and it brought back so many happy memories of my younger days when I was creating with it.

This wonderful image is called Taking It Easy and you can find it in My Whimsical Little World’s Etsy store.

To bring the image to life I used my Copics – and the wall I coloured with my Black Polychromo Pencil. The brick technique was in this month’s Create & Learn Pencils Class @ Kit & Clowder.

Here are the Copic Shades I used:-

Thinking Of You.

Good afternoon everyone!

Can you believe it’s the 7th day of September already?!

I used to laugh when my Nanna would say “The older you get the quicker time passes.” But I tell you it is totally the truth! Tee hee.

Today’s card is showcasing the fabulous new release from My Whimsical Little World.

She is called Hope and I think she is gorgeous! Smiles.

To bring her to life I used my Copics in these shades:-

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Blush & Lips.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Ground.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Hair.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Skin.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Skirt, Grass & Rose Stems.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Sky.

GE DIGITAL CAMERA

Sweater.

We had an almost disaster with this one. It was all laid out ready to be glued together, when my darling daughter managed to splash coffee all over it. 

So out came my white Uniball pen to the rescue. I’m sure if you look closely you will see the uniball mixed in with the sky. Grins.

Thankfully it was an ok save.

My pastel blue dotty paper is from my Floral Pavillion 12 x 12 paper pad by First Edtion. I matted the image and design paper with my bottle green Core’Dinations card stock.

The lace and flowers are from Live & Love Crafts.

And that beautiful ruffle ribbon is from my crafty cupboard.
