Please Read

Just when i thought i could crack on with my Christmas projects... i had an accident. Yesterday at school i fell over, and dislocated my finger. When they had put it back in place, and i'd had another x-ray, they told me i'd broke three of my fingers. I'm now in a plaster cast, and a sling, so i'll be taking a rest from blogging and carmaking for a while- 6 weeks in fact.

I know my candy closes today, but unfortunatly there won't be any stamped images, i hope whoever wins understands. I had a fantastic 140 comments, so will be throwing in 3 suprises.

AND THE WINNER IS...............

Jane... from Carrolls Creations!!!!!

Papertake Weekly

Hey everyone.
I've been working really hard on this card for the last two days, as it's for my best friend. I knew once i saw the fab sketch at Papertake Weekly by Dawny P that i had to join in. I think my gorgeous Miss Anyas from Bunny-Zoes Crafts work great with these yummy MME papers so paired those up.

The roses, pins and big pearls are all from Hobby Craft, and the gorgeous ribbon is some Smirk that i got at a great price from my local Craft Shop: 50p for 5 metres!! I watercoloured the image with my trusty whispers. { Don't think i'll ever change, i don't like Promarkers as the nibs are too thick, and copics are way to expensive!! It would probably take me a year to save my pocket money for just one set lol. }

If i was selling this card, i'd probably price it up at 1.70... i'd love to hear how much you charge for your cards, or if you sell them!

2 Little Frogs... :O)

Hi Everyone,
I thought i'd show you the card i've made for this weeks Stamp Something challenge which is: Favourite Embellishments.
I've used these fab K+Co Die-cut flowers Lyndsey sent me in my DT pack from Lora Crafts. I embossed them slighted for a curled affect, and then attached them with foam pads. The yummy papers are also K+Co- Wild Rasperry. I love the colours in this back, they range from pretty pinks and yellows to blues and brown so you get a good variety. Therse little frogs are some PB Stikeroos .{ which i love, they're so easy if you've got a quick card to make }

Sorry about the quick post, i'm off to Merry Hill Shopping! :O) Remember to enter my candy too... if you haven't already!

First Day At High School and Some Exciting News!!!

Hi Everyone,
Today was my first day at High School!!!!!! :O) I have to admit... i was scared, but as soon as i'd settled in, and go to know everyone and everything i was fine. I have a map to show me where to go, and i didn't get lost today so touch wood i won't get lost tomorrow either!
My exciting news is..... Lyndsey from LORA Crafts emailed me a few weeks ago, and asked me if i would make some cards for the shop with a DT pack she provided. It took me at least half a second to answer: YES! Of course- i'd love to. The DT Pack she provided me with was AMAZING..... full of lots of yummy papers, stamps, and embellishments, not to mention some lovely decoupage and toppers. All this will be avalible to buy when the Shop opens. { i can't wait} This is my first DT card using the gorgeous Crafts Too Papers- Chrsitmas collection. These are such great value at 2.50 for a pack of 50!!! I fell in love with this little teddy bear from PI... he's a breeze to colour, and soooooooo cute. MSBP, will also be avalible to buy.

I've following the fab sketch over at Friday Sketchers for my card

Thanks for looking,

Hi Everyone, { if anyones managed to come and find me lol}
Welcome to my new blog! I hope you like the design... i wanted something bright and summery. At the moment, i'm playing around, so you'll have to bear with me.

I've made this card for the A Spoon Full Of Sugar Challenge which is distressing!!
I chose to use ink { my ancient page pad } and then rubbed in a circular motion around the paper with a sponge. I also diod some stiching... witha pokey tool and a fineliner.
The yummy papers are MME Bloom and Grow, and of course these adictive Miss Anya's! :O)
I've also paper pierced her dress.
I've made the bow with a bit of inspiration from Bev.

Thanks for looking, i'm putting together a candy at the moment, so watch this space!
