ICS #44

Hi there, this is an amazing sketch Dawn has designed for us this week. Remember you can turn , flip, rotate anything really, just remember to enjoy yourself.

We are sponsered this week by Squigglefly .com Asley is giving the winner 3 wonderfull images

I know, I'm getting a bit predictable, another easel card,but I wanted to see how an A5 one turned out, this is for a freind of mine its her birthday on 20th Dec so i always seem to rush her card as I'm busy with last minute preps, so this year she's got a good one.

This is my fairy godmother stamp from Butterfly Kisses coloured with copics, lots and lots of glitter, K&Co papers, pink bazill,nesties,EK punches,bead cap and gem brad from stash.

Not keen on these dark nights for photo shots, even with my daylight bulb, might ask Santa for a photo box for Christmas or see if hubby can make me one, he's pretty handy.

The cards you made last week were brilliant, I hope you'll join us again this week at ICS

With love

Evening, hope everyone is well. Its mighty windy here today I dont know about bracing.
This card sort of fell together I chose my paper I wanted to use and the rest just happened not very often that happens I can tell you. The sketch is from Everybody Art and I love it. The recipe is from Lili of the valley- 3 papers , never quite sure if you count your layering, so I did.
2 Stamps- A new one from LOTV and the sentiment was from a Little Claire set, 1 type of embellishment , I chose brads, I dont think the flowers count as I made them using the papers.

Furry Xmas

WOW, what a fatastic day I had yesterday,
I went to the NEC and shopped till I dropped, It was the best I'd been to, in my opinion, the roads wasn't to bad it took three and a half hours with a loo and coffee stop. Set off at six in the morning and got home just after nine at night, had to work today to make up for having yesterday off and still havn't found homes for all my new goodies.
I started this card before I went so I've managed to get it finished tonight.

It's for a challenge I've never done before called Posh Designs Scrapbook Store its challenges are set on a Tuesday and is Bi-weekly, The hostess is the amazing Dawn B from Inspirational Card Sketches so its bound to be great.

This is the sketch I have used with an old stamp I've had for quite a while and carn't remember where its from, I've used a new card blank from craftwork cards,stickles, nesties, cuttlebug embossing folder and a rub on.

Got to get off now some kind sole has just started letting off fireworks, at eleven o clock :( and my dogs are getting spooked.

Hope to be back tomorrow after Mum has treated me to one of her amazing roast dinners, Hubby is off fishing so its a me me me day.

ICS #41

Hiya and its challenge #41 at ICS this week, Dawn has provided us with another great sketch, you can do want you want wth it as usual, this week I've turned it on its side.

We have been sponsered this week by Digistamp Boutique They have the most amazing images to choose from,( i know because they gave us all an image to make our DT cards with and it took me over an hour to decide which the winner this week gets a gift coupon for $15.00 dollars , so what are you waiting for.

The image I chose was Becky at Christmas,isn't she just adorable, perfect for a teenage girl I thought, I just resized her in photoshop and printed her off, (if you print your image off the day before you need it, you can use your copics and the ink wont bleed from your printer, or you could heat set it if your in a hurry,) I glittered the baubles and fairy wings, then matted with me nesties. Thanks to everyone that played with us last week. Hope you have fun .
