Burtonesque Dolls challenge

So this weeks challenge over at the Burtonesque dolls is to make a toe tag inspired by Beetlejuice!

I used Betty from Simply Betty stamps. Seeing as how toe tags are usually on corpse's I coloured her using grey and greens so she looks a bit, under the weather shall we say LOL

the background to the tag I created by swiping some distress ink in Walnut and Dusty Concord over my non-stick mat. I sprayed it with water and pressed the tag into it.

The vine stamp is from Stampin' Up. The little coffin is left over from Halloween and the beads and black ribbon are from an old corsage.

To finish off, here are some more pictures of my babies!! 6 altogether, out of 12 eggs, which isnt that good really! We did have 7 but his legs were disabled so unfortunately ............

Anyhow, enjoy the rest of your Sunday. England are out of the world cup (yay!!) so OH has gone to bed for a lie down after swearing that he will never watch football again - until next time LOL

We've had 5 duckling hatch up to now, out of 12 eggs. There are another 2 just starting. It's so exciting (but a bit slow LOL)

Another England game tomorrow so might actually get some crafting done! Although my new babies are in in a box in my craft room so I think I might just be giving duck cuddles instead LOL

Macabre and Mojo Monday

Another quick card!

as I am off to work again in a bit! This is for this weeks Winter Wonderland challenge which is to use traditional christmas flowers. I've used the poinsettia.

I was totally inspired by Janet's card! The flowers are punched from card and vellum using a Stampin' up punch. Infact, everything but the sentiment is Stampin' Up!! The sentiment is a PSX stamp that is about 14 years old!

Anyhow, no rest for the wicked. If footie is on tonight I may be back LOL

Have a good Sunday! :o)

Are you a WCW?

What's a WCW? A World Cup Widow. My hubby informed me a few weeks ago that he would only be watching the England matches (of which there would be at least 3!) 'No probs', Im thinking, I'll just go round to my friends.

When I got in from work this afternoon the South Africa and Mexico game was on. 'I'm watching this cos it's the host nation playing', was the cry. Then tonight the France and Uraguay match has been on. Apparently I've misunderstood the phrase 'Im only watching the England games', I guess by England he actually meant 'all countries playing!

On the upside it means I can craft away to my hearts content without him complaining LOL Anyhow, I made this piece for no other reason that the football was on!! It started off life as a large jigsaw piece. The skull is Tim Holtz grungeboard that I painted with white acrylic and swiped over some perfect pearls. I made the eyes by using beads threaded through some wire.

The backing paper and silver 'things' are from Stampin up. The heart and wings are also grunge board that I've glittered for a bit of added bling.

Anyhow, enjoy the rest of your Friday night! :o)

Another cute card!

I think it's all this warm weather LOL Although I have had toothache the last few days, that's made me feel pretty dark I can tell ya!!!

This card is for the Allsorts challenge which this week is to take inspiration from Strawberries and Cream - YUM!!! The backing paper is from Stampin Up. The images are both freebie digi images, I thought Strawberry Shortcake and the 'sweet' sentiment fitted perfectly for this challenge!!

The flower I made following a tutorial on the Whiff Of Joy site. Hope your enjoying the good weather, looks like it's all set to change tomorrow. Luckily (or not!) Im working so the weather wont bother me lol

Crazy Challenge

This card is for this weeks Crazy Challenge which is to use white, pink and black. I embossed the background and used my nestabilities for the focal image. The stamps are called Elegant Birds. I finished it off with some black ribbon and a charm. Only a quick card but I think it's pretty cute!!!

Macabre Monday!

Over at Macabre Monday the challenge this week is 'Vile Vintage'. ?!?!?! Ooooer missus and all that!! I decided to use a 50's style pin up to create my vintageness. She actually reminds me of Bettie Page!

The spiders web is actually some halloween paper. The flourish is Tim Holtz grunge board that I coloured with Adirondack pain dabbers and purple ink. I also added some TH Rock Candy, but the camera dosent really pick it up,

I hope it's vintage and vile enough for the challenge!
