Monday, Monday, bah bah bah bah so good to me...

I don't know why The Mama's and the Papa's song has popped into my head. Probably because it's Monday. No doubt it'll be stuck in my head for the rest of the week, but it's got to be better than Star Wars which I had on constant playback yesterday. I don't know why some songs stick in my head sometimes for weeks at a time. They're never the ones you want are they?!?

Today we have a new home card for my cousin. I've used some positively ancient DT. I have absolutely no idea who it's by and it's probably 10 years old. Today's stamp is buy Bildmalarna and is called up in the tree. I've coloured with my copics (no change there) and cut out with my circular nesties. I chalked the edges in blue to give the image some sky, but that doesn't appear too well on the photo. Fabulous sentiment is LOTV.

The theme over at Lili of the Valley is circles, I'm not sure if only using a sentiment qualifies, but I'll give it a go.

See you later

Ahhhh what a lovely weekend

Hallo!!! Did you have a nice weekend??? I have been Ben free for the last 2 days and it has just been lovely. The house has been quiet. I got some jobs done and I managed to make cards - yay!!!

Now I'm seriously thinking about becoming a Stampin Up rep. What do you think? Any of you had any experience of doing this sort of thing? Good and bad, let me know. I'm really yoyo-ing with the idea.

Today's card features House Mouse. This stamp is from the balloon set available from Joanna Sheen. I've coloured with my copics and teamed it up with some K&Co papers. Now it looks like I've mounted the fab LOTV sentiment onto a scalloped nestie, but alas I don't have any scalloped circles, so I improvised with two die cut flowers from Craftwork Cards.

That's about it for today. I'm all chilled and ready for the stressful working week ahead...

Happy Friday!!!

Where do the weeks go? I can't believe is nearly March already. Oh well will soon be my birthday and I can't wait. The Big Stamp and Scrapbooking show is on at Alexandra Palace on my birthday, so the hubster has agreed to take me for my birthday and is going to treat me to some stuff there as my present - yay!!! I'm sooo excited.

I've got some birthday blog candy in preparation at the moment, I'm hoping to launch it within the next couple of weeks, just depends on when everything arrives...

So today's card is for Kraftin Kimmie's challenge. Kimmie is having a Guest DT call. Did I tell you about that?? I thought I should give it a go. I've never tried for a DT before and will probably get no-where, but you have to try at some point don't you?

Today's card is in a style that is very much, not me! I'm really not sure if I like it at all. But the papers were speaking to me so I thought I'd give it a go. This week's challenge was a fabulous sketch by Elaine at Quixotic Paperie. Let me know what you think, as I'm really not convinced...

My card features Jayne and I've coloured with my copics. All of the papers are GCD Studios Paris Nights.

The Little Mister is off to stay with grandpa tomorrow, so I have a nice child free weekend to enjoy. We've rented some films are having Pizza Hut pizza and I'm going to craft. Can't Wait!

Kraftin Kimmie Stamps - A recipe

Wow, where has the week gone. I can't believe it's Friday already! This has been the first week of my new working hours and it has been brilliant. Instead of working every evening (as well as during the day) I only have to do 1.5 hours in the evening and it's flexible, so I can do it when I want depending on what's going on. It's just fantastic. I'm a much happier lady and it means I will actually have more time to craft and de-stress - Yay!!!

So today's card is for the challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps. This weeks challenge is a recipe and I found it quite hard to come up with initially, but I'm pleased with the result. The recipe was...
3 main colours
2 designer papers
1 ribbon
1 button
I combined the recipe with this week's Card Positioning Systems sketch.

My card features Goldilocks, one of my newest additions to my forever expanding stamp collection, and I've teamed with Basic Grey papers from the Wisteria stack. I've coloured with my copics and teamed with some Bazzil buttons and ribbon from my stash.

That's about it for today. Thank you in advance for any comments you might leave. It's lovely to hear from you. I can't wait to see what you've all been up to.

Penny Black Saturday Challenge

I've been neglecting my Penny Black stamps recently. I don't know about you, but I go through phases, generally with whatever is newest and shiniest! I made this card for my hubster for Valentines day and coinsidentally the theme over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge this week is 'Pretty in Pink', it's almost as if I planned it.

The stamp is by....yep, Penny Black, and I've coloured with my copics. The DP is absolutely ancient and has been in my stash for probably 7 years so I've no idea who its by. The roses and pin are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the swirl is a Marianne Designs die called Frames/Swirls.

I hope you're having a good week.

Seeing Red


Really quick post night as I'm going out with the girlies and I should have left already - whoops!

Today's card is for Kraftin Kimmie's Stamps Challenge and the theme is 'Seeing Red' I was in valentines mode, but found that all of my valentines type paper is pink, so I was a little limited. I've used Sir Galahad and coloured with my copics. Papers are from Forever Friends.

Ok, gotta dash. See you tomorrow

Yes you Can-Can

Hi di ho peeps!

Sorry for not being around last week and saying hello to you all. Last week was one of the worst weeks ever. Normally I'd bore you with the details but I've decided that I moan too much, so I'm not. I'm going to keep a positive outlook, because things can, will and must get better :)

Today's card is brought to you by Suzette. She's bringing a smile to my face and who knows I may do a Can-Can when I get home from work ;) Suzette is one of Kraftin Kimmie's beautiful stamps. I've coloured her with my copics and teamed her with some beautiful Basic Grey Papers from the Wistera stack.

I hope you like her. I'm hoping to be back tomorrow with my submission for the Kraftin Kimmie Stamps Challenge...
