It turned into a Mammoth Day - Bearing Gifts Bag

Hi folks did you see a few days ago I was playing with the download from Polkadoodles 
Omg I so love this collection and I have seen some awesome makes both in blog land and also over at Polkadoodles Facebook page
Well I thought i would share with you what i made.
A Bottle Bag
Now isnt he a cutie he is called  Bearing Gifts and you can purchase him on his own here
I used papers, elements and a little topper for the tag. love these papers.I placed him in front of the frame and placed the tortoise just behind the frame then printed out and fussy cut. Mounted onto these fab papers and added some twine and the bones. This bag is much taller than A4 therefore as my printer will only print A4 I split the papers and added this fab sentiment.
I am quiet pleased with how this has turned out and would love to know what you think.
Well if you havent checkout out the collection you really must pop along to the shop and have a browse at all the sections Nikky has broken it down into . But really you need to get the whole lot as a one soo much cheaper and soo much better value.
Thanks for popping and hope you liked my Mammoth bag.

Cozy Kitten Holiday Perfect

Good evening I am here quickly to share a card I made with this months stamp from  "FROM THE HEARTS STAMPS  " called Cozy Kittens if you didnt get it free from entering last month stamp challenge you can purchase it from there shop here 

I have colour this with a mixture of distressed inks and pencils and promarkers.
Papers are all from my stash and i have used a cuttlebug embossing folder for the inner panels as i wanted to make the image pop. I also kept all papers and card Black and white to help this.
|Added a little tartan ribbon to bring back to the scrafts on the kittens and a few gems to finish.
The sentiment is one that came with the stamp and there are a few more so well worth the pennies.
Well I wanted my kittens to look cute and fluffy and hope that I have achieved this.
The layout is from this weeks sketch also at from the heart weekly sketch challenge
From the heart monthly stamp challenge

Been Play With Stick & Bones It Is AWESOME

Hi folks I dont normally post on a Sunday but thought I would have a play. 
I havent been too good so have been chasing my tail with DT duties but today felt a little better so decided to print out some bits and pieces to make a card.

Well as I feel a bit like a relic have decided to print out some fabulous pre coloured images and papers , embellishments . Take a look what do you think

I am thinking of a card to match a Bottle bag I fancy doing. Oh I did some matting of layers with the image into a frame and added the sentiment direct. Just love that Nikky does PNG so you can add layers before you print out saves on the cutting. Lots of fussy cutting of some trees. Got my inks to touch the edges of the papers and some ribbon not sure itf to go with ribbon or the string yet. Some pearls maybe. 
Gosh there is so much on this collection if you have men little or small this is just the perfect thing for them. Even the little girls that like adventure . Checkout the cute girl on the Flying Rapture sorry if I have the wrong name. Tee Hee.
So Rawwr on over and check it out It is Mammoth
Here is a  link to the collection If the whole collection is not for you and not sure why not there are images and papers and elements sold individually
