Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #4 'Charmed i'm sure'

Hello Everyone, here's my card for this weeks challenge at Stamptacular Sunday which is simply to add a charm to your project...nice and easy :)
Here's yet another card using the gorgeous Miss Anya stamp, a pleasure to colour, available at Diestodiefor real soon, papers are BG Lime Rickey, i wasn't too sure if i liked this pad at first but it's grown on me, it's a bit 'far out man' psychedelic to say the least ! I added some Maya Rd ribbon, BG buttons, the charm is by Cardology and i LOVE the teeny alphabet stickers i found today by Craft Creations, perfect size for cards and a bargain too at 99p for 2 sheets Thanks to everyone for all your lovely comments, i'm really trying to return your visits, Blogger has been playing up lately making it so frustrating, plus the tinternet in general has been sooooooooooo slow, have just installed Google Chrome to see if it improves..fingers crossed xx

Maid Milly and Dillon

Introducing Maid Milly and her pet Dragon Dillon from Pink Gem Designs...
Dillon is one of the latest additions to Janet's accessory collection, smaller stamps that work perfectly alongside the main charactersI stamped Dillon first, created a mask and then stamped Maid Milly slightly behind him....I've been digging deep into my hoard of papers and found this pink and green harlequin paper but it had no manufacturers details on it anywhere so i can't tell you who it's by....the sentiment is Penny Black and ribbon from my stash..oh and i used my Martha Stewart punch again..Tracy at Diestodiefor has updated her stock of these this week !
A simple decorative strip to finish inside :)xx

Hey Gorgeous

I think the Miss Anyas have to be one of my favourites out there at the moment and the new set of Anyas out soon will no doubt be just as gorgeous !! This is a simple card using pp by We Are Memory Keepers 'Tiffany' range..i cut the sentiment out from one the papers and the little paper flowers too....i used my copics to colour Anya...starting to love these pens and even thinking of selling on my Promarkers so i can add more to my Copics ! If you're wondering where you can get your hands on the Miss Anya collection ...Tracy at Diestodiefor is constantly updating her stock of these and more 'Greetings Farm' stamps..My favourite out of the 3 in this set
Well i hope you are all enjoying the warm spell, it's been another gorgeous day here :) Byeee xx

Thank you.....

Here's a card i made for a challenge at Malham Damselflies, it's a group i belong to who have their very own social networking site...bit like Facebook...all new to me but it's a great idea ! They are a lovely bunch of ladies, all pretty much local to me and every so often they organise a craft retreat up in the Dales...hoping i can make the next one as it sounds fab ! So this challenge was 3 papers, 2 embellishments and 1 ribbonI used BG Porcelain papers, Leanne Ellis stamp, Anna Griffin ribbon, clear dewdrops and one teeny weeny crystal for the centre of the flower in her hair, sentiment is from Sassy Crafts
I'm still trying to get to grips with the copics, for her dress i blended two pinks together and it ended up a little peachy :)

Thanks for popping by..have a great weekend everyone xx

What a week !!

Well it's been one of THOSE weeks for me...shall try and keep it quick and not waffle, lol.

Monday...got my dates mixed up for my craft club and we ended up having to share the hall with the Bingo ladies...which dont get me wrong i was grateful for but Ahhhhhh never again, went to bed with Bingo calls in my head, lol.

Tuesday...stabbed myself in the hand with a tin opener ( cheap, nasty and blummin sharp but Josh proof...he ALWAYS breaks turn handle openers ) cant say how i managed to do it except it was the wrong way up in the drainer..so went to bed with a throbbing hand :(

Wednesday...ambushed by Smokey ( my cat )who happens to blend in very well with the stairs carpet...could have been worse i suppose as he got me half way down but still hurt like hell when i reached the bottom in a heap...so sore wrist in a support bandage, bruised shoulder and one traumatised cat,lol.

Thursday....broke an ornament..not mine...hidden the evidence and shall go back next week and lock myself in their loo armed with superglue..Shhhhhhhhhh dont tell !

And so far today i'm ok, well other than the funeral i've just been to :( an ex boss and good friend..sigh..

So it's gotta be someone elses turn now..................... please ?

Have a nice weekend everyone :) xx

Made with love.......

Morning folks, i thought i'd share this scrap page with you..have to say i'm not into scrapbooking but enjoy making the occasional page, i just dont have the patience to complete a book :) A few weeks ago my cat Smokey made an appearance on a page and so i thought it only fair that Chester be given a turn...i LOVE this photo, it captures her beautiful eyes which are the palest blue ever :)All the materials here are Blonde Moments...the papers and stamps... and i used Doodlebug rub ons for the title as well as handwriting the journaling which is a bit scarey when you've finished the page...a spelling mistake would be a disaster :)
Have a lovely day everyone xxx
