Purple tartan it up...

Here she is again Miss Anya, I do love her. Anyway here is a card which is going into this weeks Daring Cardmakers Challenge where the theme is "tartan it up". Also over at One Stop the theme is Die Cuts.
I feel like my feet have not touched the ground, life is whizzing by, but hope to be back again later, I went to the big craft fair at Exeter on Sunday with the girls, so I have some yummy new stash, and 'he' or should I say hubby (still feels weird saying that) is away with work tonight - so I can be as messy as I like, and the dog can supervise!

Elzybells Casing.................

Over at Elzybells the challenge is to find a card by Elizabeth or any DT member that you particularly like / inspires you and recreate it putting your own spin on it!

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.

EBay Sale

Just a quick post, I have decided to part with some crafty bits which are not getting the attention they deserve. They are all looking for new good loving homes lol.
So far I have listed some nesties, Penny Black stamps, more will be added over the weekend.
You can find them here. x

Black, White + 1 other

Over at Pollycraft the challenge is Black, White & one other colour, does iridescent count as a colour???? Cos I've used it ha ha....... It does sparkle lots of pretty colours.

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

Papertake Weekly - Anya

This week over at Papertake Weekly they have a great sketch challenge, I'm sure I will be using this layout again as its nice and simple! I have used a gorgeous Anya image cut out with nesties, coloured with copics, mounted onto different shades of bazzil, one layered embossed with a cuttlebug die, and a craftwork card sentiment, and a good old little bit of sparkly bling.
Not sure why the days are racing away at the mo............ Time is flying by, but the good news is I cant wait for tomorrow - off to the big craft fair in Exeter with the girlie's :)

Happy Birthday Arline

Arline has a birthday coming up, so to help celebrate she is giving away some amazing candy.
To be in with a chance of winning you need to make a birthday card and link it back to the candy - it can be linked to a challenge.

Life seems to have calmed down a bit now so hoping to get lots more crafting done :)

Penny Black Snow Family

It seems far to soon to be making Christmas cards, it cant be coming round already?! I think if I don't make them, it wont happen! lol

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.

I thought I'd share a pic of my dog/baby Mac this is how he sleeps - sparko on his back usually snoring his ickle head off! Typical fella lol. He is super cute and YES that is his toy box.

When I saw the image I used in my last post I had to buy it - it reminded me of Mac. x
