Think Pink at The Crafting Cafe

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend.  Spent most of yesterday catching up on jobs that have been piling up.  Hoping to get in the craft room later for a little play.  The weather is not that good at the moment so not going to be tempted to be outside.

Today I am here to share a little inspiration for our current challenge over at The Crafting Cafe.  Our theme for this month is:
Think Pink
We also have a fab sponsor, Aurora Wings, with a prize of $10 worth of digis from the store.  How great is that?

Here is my inspiration project using Mistletoe Fairy image from Aurora Wings.


I coloured the image using promarkers and then added lots of stickles and liquid pearls.  The papers were in my christmas stash and I used kraft card for the matting. Love the combination of pink and kraft together.  Some christmas embellishments, a bow and gems finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and would love to see you enter the challenge.  Just pop over to The Crafting Cafe for full challenge details.  Look out for more inspiration throughout the month from my talented teamies.

It's All About The Hat

Hi Folks
Quick post from me this morning before I head out to work.  Looking forward to getting some crafting done this weekend as got nothing else planned.

I have made a start on my christmas cards as I have got quite a lot to make.  I saw this stamp a couple of weeks ago and fell in love with it.  It is a woodware stamp and so cute.


For my first version of the card I stamped the image and then coloured it in using promarkers.  I added some stickles to his hat and some glossy accents to his nose and the holly at the bottom.  The sentiment came with the stamp set and I did some doodling around the edge before matting onto red card.  Some liquid pearls around the image finished it off nicely.


This second one is the same design but I added some paperpiecing to his hat. Really enjoyed the paperpiecing and I have lots more bits so can make quite a few of these.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
One Crazy Stamper - Christmas
CHNC Extra - Anything goes

Our theme this month is:
Autumn Colours

Here is my inspiration project using a pre coloured topper from The Hobby House.


I inked around the edges of the topper and matted onto some brown card.  The papers were in my stash box, not sure who they are by but they fitted in with the autumnal colour theme.  I wrapped some twine round and added some buttons as embellishments.  A simple sentimeent finished the card.

Hi Folks
Well it certainly has turned colder the last couple of days.  I actually had to put my heating on last night too.  Thankfully our new patio areas in the back garden were completed before the weather turned.  When I have some before and after photos available I will let you see.  We love it and will make for some great BBQ parties next year.

Anything Goes at Imagination Crafts

Hi Folks
Sorry I haven't been around for a few days.  We had a lovely weekend away in Wales.  The Queen Annual Convention was as good as ever.  Wonderful tribute bands and great company.  The weather was really good too.  

We arrived home on Monday to find our garden looking like a building site.  We have decided that we need a low maintenance garden so we are having all our patios redone and a large granite chipped area put in.  The company doing it started on Monday and should be finished by Thursday.  I promise I will show some before and after pictures.

Anyway, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Imagination Crafts Challenges.  Our theme for this month is:
Anything Goes
You can enter with any project you like but if you do use any Imagination Crafts products you could win a £40 voucher to spend on line in their store.  How great is that.

Here is my inspiration project.


I went for a simple but effective christmas card this month.  I used part of a christmas tree stencil together with sparkle gel.  I then added green glitter over the Sparkle Gel.  Whilst this was drying I matted some patterned paper from my stash onto green mirror card.  The topper was then matted onto more green mirror card.  A lovely bow and some gems together with a sentiment finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Imagination Crafts Challenge Blog for full challenge details.  Don't forget to check out the wonderful creations from my talented teamies.

Layer It Up at Winter Wonderland

Hi Folks
This is a scheduled post as I will be on my way to Wales for the weekend when this goes live. I won't be back until Monday so forgive me if I don't get round to do any commenting.  I am not sure what the internet access will be while we are away.  

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Winter Wonderland.  Our theme for this week is:
Layer It Up

Here is my inspiration project using an image from Kenny K.


I decided to make a little christmas gift bag.  The image was coloured in promarkers and I then fussy cut around it.  The papers are all from my christmas stash box.  I think they are from Papermania but don't quote me on that.  The mini poinsettias were the finishing touch.  Not quite as layered as I would have liked but I got a bit carried away when making it and totally forgot about the theme.  Oops!!

Our fab sponsor for this week is:


Kenny K with a fab prize of 3 digi images to the winner.

Today I thought I would share a card with you that I made quite a while ago.  I have used the Vogue collection from Craftwork Cards.


I used several of the different patterned papers to create a mosaic background onto mirror card.  The mannequin and flowers are also from the collection.  I used distress ink around the edges to create a vintage feel.  Love the card candi too which created a border around the sentiment.

Hope you are all well.  Most of you know that I started a new job about three weeks ago.  The job was full time but on a 6 month temporary contract.  Yesterday my boss offered me a permanent contract.  Unexpected to happen so soon but very welcome.  At least I know that I will not have to start job hunting again in 6 months.  I certainly must have made an impression lol.

Today I am here to share some inspiration for our current monthly challenge over at The Crafting Cafe.  Our theme for this month is:
Shades of One

Here is my inspiration project using an image from one of our sponsors Bugaboo Stamps.


I decided just to add some colour to the circular image by using distress ink.  The backing paper was in my scraps box and I used purple pearlescent card for the matting.  I lightly coloured the doily with some more distress ink.  The embellishments were all in my stash.
