Sparkle and Shine

Hello there!   Yes I am managing to keep up to date!  i am shocked too but I found this amazing tool which I didnt really understand before: ‘schedule post’ – now I know what to do with it, I should be able to keep up to date a bit better!!! Everyday is a learning day!

Ok – it is that time of the month again and that means – Cards Galore Encore!!!! YAY!!!! (Link hereIMG_7415

I adored colouring this and creating the background – I was so pleased with the vibrancy – the Challenge was to use Sparkle and Glitz – the image is from Scrappers Delights (Link here)and coloured with Copics,  the background is made using Lavinia Stamps (Link here) and very lightly coloured using Copics, the Sparkle is created with some Jones Tones and Glamour Dust. 

Why not come over and join us at Cards Galore Encore (Link here) and share your project with us – we love to see what you make!

Until next time – remember to stamp your place in the world! xxxx

Phew…where did all that time go….

Hello Everyone – And a Happy and Healthy New Year to you!!!!

I cannot believe so much time has passed since I last blogged for you. There is quite a bit to catch up with so I suspect this will be a photo heavy post tonight….

First up – That Craft Place – first challenge for 2014 – Charming – so that means that we make our creation and use a charm somewhere in it….here is my project….Charming

I have had this image for a little while and not been sure how or where to use it – I also had this delightful little charm of the airplane and suddenly I knew exactly what I was going to do with it. You might notice the rolled up zip in amongst the flowers here – had this for a while too and was very afraid it would look heavy but I actually think it has turned out okay!  The image is a Lily of the Valley one and it is coloured with Distress Inks. As always you can get in touch with the gang at That Craft Place who will be delighted to help you with selecting items for your Charming project.  When you have finished why not join our challenge over at That Craft Place blog? We love to see everything you make!

Okay….Next up – I joined Love to Create design team some time ago and frankly, for one reason and another I have not been pulling my weight there – a mixture of time and work and not being well with silly colds that seem to have floored me…so here is a selection of pictures from the recent challenges over there….in no particular order….photo 3wtmk photo 2wtmk

I hope you liked these – they are all Christmas themed and I know Christmas is over but…..I will continue to make Christmas type cards throughout the year as I found myself short of cards this year (pick a year when that doesnt happen!!!!).

Okay…and finally…As well as the existing two Design Teams I am proud to belong to I have also been invited onto the Cards Galore Encore design Team, so you should start seeing some links appear over the next few days over there on the right, as I start to get myself organised a bit with all that needs to be done. This is a brand new launch for this design team so head on over and take a look!  Unfortunately my first design for this team is not on the blog this time and this is because I was late getting it in – I have been pretty under the weather since 23rd December and managed to get so far behind with my projects that I am just now playing catch up. My apologies to the DT over at Cards Galore and my apologies also to you for my tardiness! New Years Resolution? Buck up,more vitamins, more fresh air, less colds and GET ORGANISED!!!!

Okay to round up – I will be posting much more regularly ie Weekly for Love to Create, fortnightly for That Craft Place and monthly for Cards Galore…you will be getting sick of me!!!  By the way…anywhere you see blue writing you can click on that as it will link you directly to the group mentioned! All the DT’s I am on are also on FaceBook so dont forget to check them all out on there too!!!!

Until Next time…..Remember to stamp your place in the world! xxx

It’s a girl thing….

Well Hello again! Lovely that you have stopped by, I love visitors!  Have you been enjoying the sun? Today has definitely been cooler but hasn’t the weather been spectacular?  I love the sun and did manage to spend a little time in it but unfortunately I have also had to go to work….time for sitting in the sun over!

What do I have for you today? Well over at That Craft place it is challenge time again and this time the challenge is “It’s a Girl Thing”.  Well, I don’t have girls, I have boys! Two of them so I was flummoxed but I do love a good digi and the one I have used is from Sassy Cheryl  who is a designer for this weeks Challenge Sponsor Kraftin’ Kimmie! I chose to go very girly with the pink and flowers but felt I needed to tone it down and added the blue. The flowers are made with Le Crea Multi dies and the paper is Bo Bunny.  I coloured the image with ProMarkers and sponged the edges of the image with a light touch of Paris Mist ink pad from Memento as are the petals of the flowers. And naturally, for a girls card I needed Glamour Dust to finish! I have left a sentiment off for the moment as I may need this card shortly for a birthday.

All products came form That Craft Place and here is the card….

Its a Girl Thing
