Marij Rahder

A super quick post before bed time, this is a sample for work I made tonight using the new Marij Rahder stamp collection...a little reminiscent of those characters you'd see on seaside postcards...do you know which I mean ?

There's so many stamps on one sheet with endless options, if you click on the link above you'll see what I mean, I thought the adoring look they are giving each other lent itself to a Valentines card,well I thought so, lol.

Thank you all so much for your lovely feedback on my last card xx

Less is more sometimes...

Hey everyone, how are you ? Oh I'm so much happier now all that 'orrible' snow has disappeared :) and I noticed today it was a teeny bit lighter for longer today...really does give me a lift to think that spring is just around the corner....I'm sure I suffer with S.A.D !

I think that the brighter mood I felt today has reflected in this card I've made for a lovely friend of mine.

I wanted it to be quite a simple card...I'm getting slightly weary (if that's the right word ) of fussy cards, though you get the wow factor with all the lovely details I've been just as impressed by the 'less is more' look that seems to be creeping into trend.It's quite a challenge :)

Little close up of this cutie....I like that she's not over detailed too :) She's a digi stamp which you can find here
Have a good week everyone xx

On Safari

Oh yes i wish i was on safari...how bad was the ice this morning ? I can honestly say i've never experienced anything like it, nor do i want to again....I now know what BLACK ice is all about ! It was the worst start to my day, no bus running into town so had to walk the treacherous footpaths this morning,it took me so long i missed my next bus to work...i hate paying for taxis...a blummin fortune i tell ya !

Anyway moan over, this weather is getting on my nerves now..hurry up spring !

So here's a card i made as a sample for work very late last night, this is one of the Safari/Jungle stamp sets Creative Expressions released a little while back...quite cute i think :) The Zebra print paper is Anna Griffin, very touchy feely flocked paper i might add...I embossed and distressed some Core'dinations cardstock, wrapped some paper twine ( John Lewis ) around that and added one of the circular sentiments from the set.

And there you have it :)

Keep warm everyone xx

Cute card Thursday Challenge

Hi Folks, thought it was time i joined in with a challenge...it's been so long since i did ! I'm entering this into this weeks challenge over at Cute Card Thursday which is to use something new.

Well this sweet Sarah Kay stamp is new to me, A kiss for Chloe, which i coloured with copics and i used distress inks to create the background. Papers are Bo Bunny 'Flutter Butter'...again....Anitas circle card blank, a paper doilie, heart punch and woodware buttons, sentiment is by My sentiments exactly.

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend despite the Big Freeze xx

My first bit of craftiness for 2010

I thought i'd share this post from my other blog here....still no cards :)

Well the snow has bought me some crafty time today with the shop i work at being closed for the day, it really does look pretty out there but i'm so glad i didn't have to venture out !

To ease me back into the swing of things i thought i'd make a couple of ATC's...

Stamps are Inkadinkado and Stampotique

Stamps are Basic Grey, released late summer last year.

A while ago i was very lucky to win Kate Cranes blog candy, this fabulous Art Journal ! If you buy Craft Stamper mag you'll be familiar with Kates work, this months mag has a fantastic article on Art Journaling by Kate, definately worth a look...thank you so much Kate, such a thrill to win this !

Stay safe and warm everyone xx
