Sketch Saturday Challenge!

Hullo, hullo,
How are you today!
Bit wet and windy for my liking but then I suppose that's England for you!!
Just a quickie for me tonight as very tired as was dreaming all night last night and managed to over sleep so real drama this morning as you can imagine trying to get out the door on time but just about managed it!!
My card for today has been made by following the sketch over at Sketch Saturday and for this I have used my Bauble Decoration Papermania Stamp.

I really like this stamp as you do not really need a lot else on the card with it, in actual fact I think this one is a little too much I would probably use it on its own with maybe a little ribbon somewhere, I will have to experiment.
Oh Well off to bed for me have a busy week this week!
Toodle pop!

Sparkly Christmas Card!

Hullo, Hullo,
Yup! think it's gonna be Crimbo cards all the way now and then hopefully no rush at the last minute!!
That's the plan anyway whether or not it works we shall see.
I have dug out some Basic Grey papers for this card and I have followed the great sketch over at Papertake Weekly a nice quick design .
Over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge it is to make a card for the guys so hopefully this will qualify. I don't think it's too girly, I have left it quite plain although must confess there is lots of sparkle, I have glamour dusted all over...

Nice and sparkly!!!
I so need some photography lessons, it definitely is user error and lack of computer knowledge in my house, I'm sure the kids would know what to do if only they could drag themselves off that dreaded new Call of Duty!!!!

Hullo, Hullo,
"Darn, Blast and Flip!!!!!
Please tell me you have done this before - made my card at the weekend for the Forever Friends Challenge only to realise I had missed the deadline !!!! waaagghh!!!
Luckily for me it still complies as it does have glitter on the wording and the balloon and tiny weeny flower. I coloured over them with my clear spica glitter pen but unfortunately as usual it does not show up in the photograph!! Doh!
On to a happier note I have been given an award -YAY lil ole me!!
It has been passed on to me by the lovely Julie you really must pop over and see her wonderful creations, I am a frequent visitor and I am sure you will too once you have taken a peek!!
Hope to be back later or tomorrow with my award and a few questions that will be answered which goes with it!!

Stamp something and Cute Card Thursday Challenge!

Hullo, Hullo,
Happy Sunday to you!!
Did we survive the winds then - did they come last night - not too sure as we went out with friends for a couple of drinkies or two and then finished it off with an indian meal yum yum!!
The rest is a blur lol x
We have lots of trees at the back of our garden and they still seem to be standing so I guess it wasn' t too bad thank goodness.
I have followed a great sketch over at Stamp Something this week for my card and have used my freebie stamp that you get with Do crafts Creativity magazine, what a cracker this stamp is if you snip the little robin off you will also be able to use him as a birthday bear!! (but i guessed you would of thought of that already!!)

There is lots of sparkle and bling on my card and luckily for me my camera decided to be nice to me and you can see all the lovely sparkle here
and here!!!
I am making the most of my piccies today as the majority of the time I do not get a good piccie

Over at Cute Card Thursday the challenge this week is glitter me silly and believe me there is lots of glitter on this card!!!

Hope you like my card am rather pleased with this one today!

Enjoy whats left of the weekend am really enjoying the lovely autumnal colours of the leaves on the trees at the mo.

Toodle pop!

1 Card , 2 Challenges

Hullo, Hullo,
Oooer! What a wet one it is today - very glum :(
Please Mr Sunshine do come out and play :)
I had a nice surprise when I came home from work yesterday it was the blog candy I had won from the lovely Emma and she had sent me a FAB card - THANKYOU!!!
My card today was a nice quick one as it is made up of stickers from I Wish Stampin up scrap kit and the sentiment is from SU season of joy stamp set.
I have used the great sketch over at Get Sketchy and the theme over at Stamp With Us is Christmas so I think I have just about covered it!!
Well thats it from me so many things to do yet such little time - no rest for the wicked!
Enjoy your weekend!!

Sketch Saturday challenge!

Hullo, Hullo,
Time for another card and a colourful christmas one too, it is rather bright but I think I can get away with it as I have used the funky fairy from the pink cat studio christmas set.
I have used my new Martha stewart branch punch (which I had forgotten about!!!) and decided to have a go at using my retro flower punch in the MS doilly lace punch to give a pretty alternative to the petals if you look closely.
I have followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday and whilst making this card I learn't something new - NEVER SPRITZ YOUR CARD WITH GLIMMER MIST ONCE PUT TOGETHER!!
DOH!! what a donut I am, but I have learn't the hard way, my poor card has turned out rather warped lol!! :)
I had put the papers on and the middle section, then decided to spritz, not a good idea apparently you need to spritz then stick = unrippled card!
Oh well, we all learn by our mistakes I will know next time.
OOps just realised I haven't put a number in my sentiment, is it really nearly christmas I haven't even started thinking about it.
Please tell me I'm not the only one or have you all done and dusted?
Surely not!!!

One Card - 2 Challenges!!

Hullo, Hullo,
Happy Sunday to you!!
It is My Dad's birthday today so a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to him, we are going for a family meal this afternoon to celebrate - yum yum!!!!
Have had quite a busy weekend so far, we went to the Dogs in a limo yesterday with friends, this was my first time for me in a limo and I thoroughly enjoyed myself I know it sounds daft but I felt like a celebrity as we got caught in traffic and people were trying to look in and see who was in it - obviously I didn't hang out the window and wave as I didn't want to disappoint them lolx
I have made my Dad an Easel card as these are my fave at the moment and to my surprise whilst blog hopping I manage to find 2 challenges that cover this card.
You really must check out the DT cards on both as they have some amazing cards which have been made.
Over at Crazy4challenges it is an easel card this week you really must check out Barbara Anders she has made the most gorgeous gingerbread man card - I love it!!!
Also over at Secret Crafter the challenge is an easel card and they also have some lovely cards full of inspiration.

I always struggle with mens cards as most of my stamps are girly and cute but overall I am quite pleased with this one, hope you like it and give these easel cards a go they look so impressive once displayed.

Good luck in the challenges if you are joining in

Cupcake Craft Challenge 64

Hullo, Hullo,
Girl Friday here with a card for the Cupcake Craft challenge and what a great sketch this week!!!
I really wanted to use my Kraft card (for a change! lol) and decided to create my own background using an Elzybell snowflake stamp with some papermania shimmer dots in the centres.
The strips have Doodlebug snowflakes stamped on them and main image is Doodlebug too!!
This is an old christmas set but isn't it nice having a rummage and finding stamps you had long forgotten about.
There are lots of shimmer dots on this card if you take a closer peak you may just make them out.
I knew what I wanted to achieve with this card but feel it's lacking a little something, any ideas from you lovely bloggie buddies will be gratefully received :)
Enjoy your weekend

Two Cards Today!!

Hullo, Hullo,

Another Easel card today, you knew it wouldn't be long before another one had to pop up!
This has been made with SU products and the button from stash and a pretty scalloped, scalloped EK success punch - it doesn't show up too well but along the scallops are tiny weeny scallops!!!

A very simple card, I have stamped straight on to the Kraft card and coloured in with copics, the star on the tshirt is glittered and the name is Sizzix Graffiti alphabet.
Fingers crossed these cards should have reached their destination by now!!!
Will hopefully be joining in with all those fab challenges on the blogs at the moment so watch this space !!!
Enjoy your fireworks tonight and be safe!

Anya Card

Hullo, Hullo,
Good morning on this wet and dreary day!
Aagggh well I expect the ducks will be enjoying themselves!!
Just a quickie this morning. I keep forgetting about this little Anya and this is the first time she had seen some ink, I think that's why she has this very surprised look on her face!
I probably should have done this when all the challenges were based on Autumn colours but hey ho hope you like it anyway!
I tried and I mean tried to stickle around the edge of my nestie so the little speckly dotty bits are meant to be nice and glittery - didn't quite work out but the thought was there. :)
Enjoy your day whatever you may be doing and thanks for all your lovely comments, and hey it's Tuesday!!
3 days early for my girl Friday slot! lol
Toodle pop!
