Here is my card - this weeks theme is:
MAKE A FAKE
anything fake, or faux if you are posh, on your cards this week. You could use a border punch to create fake lace, or do a bit of faux stitching or faux flowers.
I used my doily punch for faux lace, a flower punch and some sparkly gems!
its weird making a card for a challenge and not entering it! lol.
Hope your all having a lovely weekend, I'm off to my bezzies Virgin Vie party later, which will be lovely, but in good old Sunday style have just watched a bit of QVC whilst channel hopping and Bobbi Brown was on - I love Bobbi Brown, I tried it earlier this year and have never looked back, I wore it for my wedding and it felt amazing. Needless to say I just parted with a few pennies! Oh well - looking forward to the postie arriving. x

I loved making these small cards, these ones remind me of when I was at school many moons ago lol, and it was cool to give out tiny Christmas cards.
All that aside Im so proud of me getting some Christmas cards done already, I might just make a few more like these. I think they will look quite nice twinkling away in the dark Christmas nights to the glow of the fire! - We put the fire on for the first time last nigh as it was freezing, I'm looking forward to the summer again already, lol.
To make these cards I used:
Cuttlebug snowflake die, plain card stock, nestabilities, doodlebug stamp 'Let it snow', glitter card, papermania brads, sparkly gems.

Well, I popped over to Michelle's blog, and found this card and recreated it, just changed the colour and some very very minor bits. I love Michelle's blog, I think her work is totally inspiring, her clean and simple style is right up my street.
I have had the image coloured for ages - so it was lovely to put it to use.

The papers are doodle bug, the image is pink petticoat, and of course good old glamour dust.

Anyway to help prepare Penny Black Saturday Challenge this weeks theme is Christmas.
The pic isn't very good - dodgy dark nights creeping in, and once one light bulb goes they all seem to go, and we've run out! This was the best of a bad bunch. lol
I think this is one of my all time fave Penny Black stamps, I have put some glitter on it but you cant see it, never mind hay?! I coloured it with marvy pens.

When I saw the image I used in my last post I had to buy it - it reminded me of Mac. x
Monday, 31 August 2009
Here is a card I made to give to my friend Sasha as a THANK YOU for having my dog Mac stay with her while we were on holiday, she goes to Egypt today but when shes back were going to the big craft fair down in Exeter, so I will put in some spends so she can treat her self.
This stamp reminds me of Mac, he loves sleeping on his back. I coloured the image with watercolours, coloured the flowers with shimmerz and mounted it onto some fun doodlebug papers.

Saying that it has been a bit better the last couple of days. I have a couple of cards to upload in the next few days, but I've put my camera in a safe place - well timed as I didn't have it for my hen weekend! Which was brilliant :) I'm so lucky to have so many lovely friends.
