They call him mellow yellow!

or maybe that should be her, seeing as she is a 'gorjuss' gal!!! This card is for the Midnight Madness sketch. This week ther are 2 sketches so I kinda blended them both together.

Again, the scrap drawer worked its magic and came up with yellow - not normally a colour I would use but there you go

Thanks for taking the time to look


Mojo Monday on a Sunday!

Whew, been a right Last Minute Harry with my challenges this week!!! This is for the Mojo Monday sketch, which I flipped.
I've no idea where the 2 girls come from but arnt they fab?! They were from a stamp RAK swap. Everything is from my scrap drawer, hence why its pink. That was the top colour so I just worked from there!
Got shed loads of birthday cards to make for the next few weeks so off to peruse some sketches.
Have a fab rest of Sunday!

Lots to Do challenge

This is for the Lots to Do Challenge which this week is to make a tag. Nothing difficul about that I hear you cry? Well, it cant be tagged shapped (which isnt that difficult either but I wanted to build up the suspense lol)
The tag is also supposed to have stamping on it so I have slightly cheated a and added something that is stamped rather than stamping the actual tag but hey, serves me right not to read the full instructions before I start LMAO!
As to my black eye, I did it by turning round fast in my computer chair and banging it into something that was stuck out at my eye level - pretty mundane really!
See ya in about 2 mins with another post!

New things Sunday!!!

Yup, I tried a new thing today. Inspired by Hilda's gorgeous faux porcelain and using Sherry Cheever's fabulous tutorial I got out my melt and made this!!
Now, I cant show you all of it as it forms part of someone's birthday present, but I think it dosent look half bad. Because of the colours I used it's got kind of a chinese jade thing goin' on (if you've been to the orient you'll know what Im on about! lol)
On the downside of today, I have given myself a black eye - in my craft room! Can you believe it!! Not that you probably (nor should!) care but I am totally going for the sympathy vote here LOL. And no, I didnt fall over all the crap on the floor (as my OH asked!) as I TIDIED (thats right!) tidied up in here yesterday! What a weekend :o)

Winter Wonderland

If your looking for my OWOH post please scroll down.

A bit late this week, but I have been dead busy at work!!!

The papers are scraps from a Dovecraft set, the image is one I received as an RAK. I didnt have any lace to follow the sketch so I used a doillie instead (well, seeing as I dont have afternoon tea it may as well get used! LOL)

Have a fab Saturday night!!

Midnight Madness!!

Another challenge and another mini card!!
I havent used these stamps for AGES!! They are an Elusive Images set. Again, the papers are from my scrap drawer (arnt I a good girlie!) I am determined to use up my stuff that I've had for ages. Does anyone else do that? Buy stuff, then buy more stuff - use that, then buy more stuff and use that without using up the first stuff IYKWIM?!!
Anyhow, that goodness its Friday!!! I've been so tired this week, I cant wait for a lie in tomorrow LOL

Two posts in one day!

Aaahh, the joys of bad weather lol. I have been extremly productive craft-wise today, although i've been working on birthday goodies so cant show you them.
This card is for the Midnight Madness sketch. Not only have I routed out some extremly old papers - from Lakeland no less! But i have also revisited my old stamps. This image is from Paperartsy Ink and the Dog Asian plate 2. When I first brought this plate I used it over and over (as you do with new stamps) so thought I would give it another outing. Plus, how sexy is that image! yummy!
Enjoy the rest of your evening!

Sunny(ish) Sunday

Well after all the rain yesterday today the sun came out - for a bit LOL
This weeks challenge on Winter Wonderland is to use Burgundy and Teal. Not to sure about this card, originally I planned to use the card landscape, but when I had finished the snowman he wouldnt fit, so I had to rotate!!
Hope you've all had a fab weekend

Wet weekend!!

Bit of a washout here this weekend!!! I hate rain, it generally means that I spend most of the day with permanatly wet jean bottoms - dont you just hate that!!!

Anyhow, seeing as it's a day for staying in thought I'd enter the Anyone for Anya challenge which this week is to use charms. Hence the fairy card - fariy/charms geddit! LOL

On the upside, my hubby told me he has booked for us to see the utterly gorgeous 30 Seconds to Mars next month - big yays!

Have a fab Saturday :o)

The backing paper is again from my scrap box (New years resolutions and all that jazz) The image is a digi stamp from the Greeting Farm. She's not huge, it's the card thats small lol

This weeks challenge on Winter Wonderland is to follow the sketch, which I have duly done :o)
The papers are Dovecrat one's that I brought about 2 years ago. The Father Christmas image is from Whiff of Joy (he was on sale a few weeks ago lol)

Walking along, singing a song.......

walking in a winter wonderland! Yup, another day off due to snow, although up to now tomorrows group havent cancelled so back to normal for Friday LOL

So I thought I share a few pics of my winter wonderland and show you the unhappy residents!! Our chickens are very cross with the weather. They are more summertime gals and guys.

A day off means another excuse to make a card!

This one is for the Club Anya Monday Mania challenge, which is to use monochrome. I used orange as its not really a colour I'm that into. I used Geisha Anya cos I love her and I thought the orange looked kinda oriental. I also used scraps!! Can you believe it! One of my New Years resolutions (apart from the usual) is to use up my drawer of scrap paper.

Have a great Thursday whatever your up too.

Another day

off due to the snow!!! Im sure most people in other countries must be laughing their pants off at us Brits!!

On the upside, it means I have time to make another card!! This one is for the Midnight Madness challenge. It uses one of my fav stamps, that gorgeous mermaid from Third Coast Art. The sentiment is a Stampin' Up one and says 'sending you birthday wishes on your special day'. (told you I had to bump up my B-day card stock lOL)

Have a fabulous Wednesday!

There's no business

like SNOW business!!!!!
Yup, because of this I got sent home from work. Dontcha just love love love snow!!!! Anyhoo, cause I now have a free day it gave me some to complete the Mojo Monday challenge.

For this card I used some Stampin Up papers (as I know they all co-ordinate!) and made a birthday card! I soooo need to bump up my b-day card stock, on the other hand, maybe I should make snowmen while the snow falls?! Have fun whatever your up too!

Starting early!!!

Ok, ok so I know its only the 4th January and Im showing you a christmas card already BUT this is for the Winter Wonderland challenge. The idea is that you join in the challenges each week, then by christmas you'll have 50 odd cards ready to send!
This weeks challenge is to use berry, lime and cinnamon on your card. It dosent have to be a christmas card but there's nothing wrong in getting an early start lol
Have a fabulous Monday (if thats possible!)
