Hiya, well I love my new stamp my son and daughter in law got me for mothers day, well the first one I've used they got me quite a few ;o) I've combined three challenges here , I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday, Sugar Bowl wanted us to use either Spring or Easter and Daring Cardmakers wanted to see either a chick or bunny, I dont normally do Easter cards so this was a first for me, think I might send it to my son as a thankyou with there easter eggs.

2 in 1

Evening all, its my nephews birthday next week so I thought I would combine two challenges for this one . Firstly the wonderful Beth over at Truly scrumptious has lived up to her challenge name and given us a truly scrumptious sketch to work with, very versatile can be toned down for a male or fussed up for a girly card, I've used papers from DCWV which I thought went very well with the Giraffe, its a stamp from The Artful Stamper Co. I love this stamp with its gorgeous eyes. This card also fits in with My time to craft, this is my second card fo this challenge, which is Nature this week. Well I must go as i have loads of paperwork to catch up with tonight. Hope to be back tomorrow,
Bye for now

Hiya, well I don't know how I managed it but I've done four challenges in one card, firstly My time to craft wanted us to use nature as our subject, I think Porridge from Sugar Nellie certainly fits that bill, then the colour scheme Cupcake gave us three options brown + pink, brown + blue or brown + green, I used papers from Making Memories Cosmopolitan collection. Over at Pink Elephant they wanted us to use buttons somewhere on the card, they are out of my stash. Lastly the wonderfull sketch this week is from Friday Sketchers by the taleted Carole, I really enjoyed this sketch that i turned on its side. Hope to be back on Friday as MIL is coming for tea tomorrow night. Bye for now.

This wonderfull sketch by Sketch Saturday was a pleasure to use and I will deffinately be using it again. I've used green which is the colour Stamp Something asked us to use as our colour scheme, I seem to be using green alot lately. And thirdly its got a cake on it, just what Secret Crafter asked us to use. The stamp is a Personal Impressions, paper is by K&Co and I coloured her with my Prismas.Must go I'm on my dinner break.

Little bruv

Hiya, well I've totally lost it this weekend, its my brothers birthday on Monday and i just couldn't think of anything to put on his card. He has no hobbies or intrests so after putting it off for a week I finally ended up with this. Just cut the wording out with my cricut.

Magnolia Vs Stampavie

Hi, I'm so pleased, The Hobby House has some of my fave stamps in now they sell Sarah Kay and Sugar Nellies, she also stocks Martha Stewart punches, i just wish she was a bit closer, she's about 40 miles but luckily she opens on a Sunday, my day off :) and the coffee shop does a mean Sunday lunch so everyones happy.
Over on M Vs S Carla has given us a wonderful sketch to play with. I've used one of my new Sarah Kays, coloured her with Prismas, used K Ancestor paper, some ribbon lace from Krazy Krafters and a sweet crystal for the text.
I should have gone to Salsasize tonight but I've twisted my back so daren't risk jumping about to much so I had a pizza instead, that will do my diet good :o) My mother in law is coming for tea tomorrow so I shan't get to play, but hope to Friday night.

Truly scrumptious, Belli

Hi back again, I've just made a card that takes in 2 challenges, Belli wanted us to use a colour we are not comfy with, well mine is turquoise, so i teamed it up with pink and orange and I'm quite pleased with the effect. I used a sketch from Truly scrumptious which was really great and they wanted us to also make our own buttons, which i did using a chipboard flower covered with a scrap of paper holes punched in the top using my cropadile and tied with raffia. The stamp is from Art impressions that i got from the sale bin at The Hobby House, cant remember the make of paper but the range is magnolia, I coloured the immage with my prismas.

Friday sketcher, Papertake Weekly,Spoonfull of sugar

Hiya, I just loved this sketch from Friday Sketcher, I flipped it on its side as I wanted to use this stamp from Sugar Nellie, its one of the Leanne Ellis range, which I love,on my Mums card. The colour scheme brown, pink and orange are the Papertake Weekly Challenge, I love to use pink and orange together, I've 3D the image and wish and also glossy accented her buttons, wish and a few highlights on her wings but I'm not sure you can see that in this photo. I've torn the edges at the top so it counts for A spoonfull of sugarschallenge aswell.Hubby has gone fishing but he just rang to say itsblowing a gale and spitting with rain so I've proberly only got an hour of me time left, he's a bit of a fair weather fisherman lol.
Well I think I'll make the most of my hour and pop back upstairs to my bat cave, lol
Bye for now.

mojo monday

Hiya, its seems ages since I've done a challenge, been busy at work and doing my samples for Debbi Moore, so really enjoyed myself tonight, I treated myself to some new nesties, nice size, they will work well with a lot of my stamps plus I think they look a bit more masculine than the scallops so should get plenty of use on men's cards, I think I've persuaded myself that I should really invest in the other labels set as well. lol.
This card started out for the whiff of joy challenge then I realised I'd used a judikins stamp on the background, so Mojo Monday came to the rescue with there lovely sketch and a chance to win some Verve stamps, the DT cards are brilliant yet again . It never fails to amaze me how different people interpret the sketch. Ive used Whiff of Joy and Judikins stamps and coloured with my prismas. Hope to get another card done tomorrow, so see you then .
Bye for now.
