Hiya I'm back again, this time with a card for Dottie's World. this is my first time at this challenge. The challenge was to make something with not too much fuss on it so i hope this counts. I made it using The Girl About Town download which i just love, i made a new baby card i also made another one the same but in blue for a boy.

Cupcake Craft Challenge

morning all, this card i made following another fab sketch, first time having a go at this challenge for me. the papers are basic grey, the image is Sarah Kay which I've had for ages and only used once so thought I'd better get her inked up and she is coloured using pro markers. Sentiment again is pink petticoat, buttons and charm are from my stash.

Another new challenge blog

Morning all hope your all well this fine freezing morning. Well i cant believe how quickly this week has gone, I'm back to work on Sunday, but never mind I've got a weekend in Blackpool to look forward to 2 whole days of crafting with lots of crafty ladies should be fun.

Anyway back to the post, Carly from carlz cardz has set up a new challenge blog called CHARISMA CARDS and it's the first one this week you had to make something pink.

I decided to use Tilda(again) and my circle nesties to make the card base never done this before so it really was a challenge for me, getting it to stand up was the hardest bit because the flower is slightly hanging over it fell to one side and Tilda looked like she'd been on the sherry lol, so i just added a stand on the back. The ribbon, flowers and charm are from my stash and Tilda was coloured with pro markers.

Hope you like it girls and good luck with the blog.

papertake weekly challenge

the challenge over at papertake weekly this week is to use spots or dots on your project. I've chosen to use lily the fairy from pink cat studio, she is sat on circles cut with my nesties, and was coloured with pro marker, the papers are making memories boho chic a pad i found when i tidy ed my craft room yesterday. I really was ruthless if i haven't used something for 6 months or more then it went either in the bin or a pile of stuff for a friend of mine who is just stating out in the card making world( god help her ).Any way back to the card spotty ribbon added for the spots and cardstock embossed with cuttlebug. hope you are all having a good day. bye for now shell xx

A new challenge blog

It's called Sketch and Stash..... It couldn't be simpler to enter! Every 2 weeks there is a sketch to follow and all you have to do is use your new or never used (or hardly used!) stash on your creation! This is your chance to fall in love with all that stash again or just to show off with your brand new stash!!

I've only just started taking part in all these different challenges and i must say I'm really enjoying myself. I have a week off work this week so I'm planning to take part in a least one a day. My card for the first challenge following the sketch i used my new Lizzie stamp part of the blog candy i won off Heather(thanks again) coloured with my lovely pro markers then i added a border using a small flourish stamp i got from a show, the papers are Pink Petticoat Little swirls, hand written sentiment and circle flower thingy is screwed up paper and inked around the edges and then added a brad. thanks for looking. I'm off to find another challenge.

penny black challenge

This is my entry for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. This week the challenge is to use embossing on your project. I've used the Uplifting Occasion stamp for the image and the Happy Birthday cuttle bug folder for the embossing the flower is from my stash, the little piece of pattered paper is basic grey which i got from heather from rica's haven. I was really lucky and won her blog candy, i can not get over the genousosity of crafters thank you so much heather, amongts all the goodies i got was a wiff of joy stamp, lizzie with a muff, and it is beautiful.

First card of 2009

Happy new year to everyone in blog land, i hope you all had a good one. This is the first card i made this year. The image is elzybells (I'm getting quiet a collection of these now), papers i found at the bottom of a box i was sorting out, one of new resolutions is to sort out my craft room and keep it tidy ha ha don't fancy my chances of that, the flower embelishment i made using a tutorial in one of my mags.

Happy new year
