Just Magnolia Challenge # 28

At last i've had time to play along with a challenge, it's been a hectic couple of weeks here with little or no time at all to make anything due to work commitments...loving the job but it seriously intrudes on creative time :( So i'm looking forward to the next few days off, a chance to catch up with everyone and hopefully get back on track with my cards...

Here's my entry to this weeks challenge at Just Magnolia which is this lovely sketch set out by Martine.

For my card i chose this cute Magnolia Santa and put him together with gorgeous papers from the Jolly by Golly Mini deck from Cosmo Cricket available at The Craft Emporium, Papermania felt snowflake ribbon from last winters collection, sentiment is SU, Woodware Fluffy stuff and glitter and adhesive snowflakes from Craft for Christmas.

I always seem to miss an element in the sketch, the sentiment ended up at the top, lol...tis a minor detail i know :)

Have a great week everyone xx

Hello everyone, hope you're all having a good weekend ? Kimmie has kindly invited me to join the team as a Krafty Friend for this weeks challenge, thank you Kimmie :)The theme this week is BUTTONS ...again nice and easy, we all love to use buttons !

This is the last in the set of four girls from the collection which this time i coloured with copics. The papers are Cosmo Cricket, forgive for forgetting which one...i'm so tired..shall explain, as is the sentiment and the ribbon and button are from my stash.

I've had such a great day today, the craft shop I work for, Samuel Taylors, held a craft event in the village to celebrate their 60th anniversary...boy have we been busy....I've been running a little make and take session all day and have to say everyone i met was so nice ! Hello to Kirsty, it was really good to meet a fellow blogger and I got to meet my dear friend Elaine *waves* thank you so much hun for being so kind and thoughtful, again so nice to meet you.

So i'm now enjoying a good cuppa before i put my feet up for the night...sheesh i'm so tired...gotta do it all again tomorrow !

Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Challenge 1# Birthday

Well it wouldn't be right if i didn't give this weeks challenge at Kraftin Kimmies a go would it ...incase you've missed my last few posts, lol, i LOVE the new stamps here !

The challenge is to create a birthday card, as simple as that :)

I've gone for a really girly, very pink look for Posy, using Doodlebug papers and some pretty gingham ribbon. Again i've coloured her with koh pencils...now i did toy with redoing the image, the shade around her isnt right but i'm so short of time this week with work that i've had to leave it as it is :(

Enjoy the rest of your week everyone xx

Yes I know another makeover

I know, I know, lol, yet another one ! Dont know what it was about the last one, it seemed cramped somehow, anyhoo much happier now honestly xx

ps...have given the 'Other Blog' a little revamp too !

Be Happy

Morning everyone, at last I have a card to share with you ! So sorry for my lack of posting (again) it's been a busy week what with starting the new job and all I've wanted to do at the end of the day is put my tired feet up and chill.....

When I saw a preview of the new line of stamps at Elaines shop designed by the artist Annie Rodrigue I just had to have them, they are a mixture of cute and quirky...totally me :) This is Charlotte...I just love those button eyes !!

I decided to colour her with Koh pencils for a more grungy look..boy I forgot how time consuming this is ! Papers are 7Gypsies, I stamped the heart and added the sentiment and button, ribbon is available at Elaines shop.

I think I can safely say I'll be back soon...have more rubber waiting to be inked up ;)

Have a lovely day folks xx
