Sketch Saturday

This card follows this weeks sketch over at Sketch Saturday, this week you can win a £15 gift voucher to spend over at Quixotic Paperie.

My card uses the gorgeous Ocean Wavedancer digi stamp.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! :o)

Art Raffle

This piece is for 3djeans art raffle. This months theme is orange, red and yellow. If you have a bit of free time why not join in? This month's theme is open till the end of September, so plenty of time.

Im on a bit of a beading roll at the moment so thought I'd make a bracelet. The red beads were from Cassandra's bead swap that I took part in last month. The charms and bells were all from my stash box, you know, stuff that you have and you never know what to do with. I mean, what kind of card would call for a gecko charm? LOL

Anyhow, hope your having a fab Saturday. Once the rains passed I'm off out in the front garden. The post lady called the other day and said she didn't think I was in, I think that was a metaphor for 'I thought the house was derelict', that give's you some idea as to how bad the garden is LMAO

Digital Tuesday Challenge


This spooky little Halloween card is for this weeks Digital Tuesday challenge. I love Halloween but we don't (I'm not sure if celebrate is the right word LOL) do that much with it over here in the UK.

This weeks challenge is to combine 2 images from different companies on a card. My card uses a cute little witch from Sweet November stamps and a cool background from C.C. Designs.

Thanks for taking time to stop by! :o)

Bring on the bling!

This highly sparkly penguin is one of Mo Manning's fabulous digital stamps, and because he's a Mo image I can enter this card in Mo's challenge which is Christmas!!!

Seeing as how it's a Christmas card this also qualifies me for the Winter Wonderland challenge. This week it's to use no design papers - hence the plain monochrome. I did glitter up the penguin though to add a bit of interest LOL I've no idea where the sentiment stamp came from,, I purchased if from Ebay a few years ago.

The black theme also fits in with this weeks Tuesday Taggers too!!

Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday and thanks for looking! :o)

C 0f C Week 8!


This piece covers 2 challenges. This week over at Linda's challenge is Inking Grunge - page 39 of your Compendium.

My flowers are made from grunge paper and the foliage is grunge board.

I then stamped the words onto a postcard and embossed them, then over-stamped a scratched wood background.

The beads on this piece also qualify me for the All Things Crafty raffle. I won last months so had to pick a theme so I chose - beads LOL

Have a fab Tuesday :o)

Something old, something new....

So my 'phase' this month is jewellery making LMAO! I made this bracelet from bamboo dominos which I purchased from the Artistic Stamper.
I printed some old Japanese woodcuts onto card, stuck them onto the tiles and coated them in diamond glaze. Pretty much the same deal as the domino pendant I made.

I then joined it all together with elastic and added some pearls.

I'm entering this into the Artistic Stamper challenge which is 'Something Old, Something New'. So I made a 'new' bracelet out of new tiles using 'old' Japanese woodcuts. LOL

Anyhow thats me done for this evening!!!

Ooooo just noticed, how hairy is my arm!!! Apparently that's a sign of good circulation LOL :o)

Challenge after challenge LOL

Now the school holidays are upon us work had quietened down so I have more free time - yay!!!!

This card is for a few challenges. Over at Club Anya Monday's theme is to 'alter' your images. I used Prince Ian's body, Edwards head and Flutter Anya's wings to make a gruesome flying boy LOL

This mean I can enter him over at Macabre Monday's challenge which is 'Foul Flutterings'.

The card sketch is from Mojo Monday. Not sure who's birthday this will be for, someone who's a bit 'alternative' that's for sure LOL

Enjoy the rest of your Monday! :o)

Nothing special

just a notebook for a friend. I found out he writes songs but does it on an Ipod - how boring!!! Thought I'd make him little note book to write them in instead LOL

It's simply a cheap ASDA notepad that I've covered with black card and a piece of music. I then stamped the words 'Absolute Beauty' and embossed them in black. Covered the whole piece in velum and added a flower. I chose a monochrome theme as it's for a bloke.

Thanks for looking. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday
:o)
