Hi everyone. Today my card is using 'yarn tales' from HM, coloured with Promarkers and as you can see a single layer card, sentiment from Elzybells stamp, phlox flower dies, embossing and gems, some sparkle on the wool. I stamped some footprints on the inside too. I thought this would make a nice thinking of you card for October Cancer Awareness month...sending big hugs to anyone who is suffering from this awful disease. We all need to be there for one another. Challenges entered are only 8...Ribbon Girls, AAGWAT, Allsorts, CYP flowers, gems, dies, CCT, HM, Gruffies and Guests 2nd and Creative Knockouts. Sorry it's a quick post but I have a lot to get through today, many thanks for coming over, bye.

Good afternoon all. Well the rain has taken a bit of a rest today...just a bit of drizzle in the air. I hope all is well for you and you like what you see here. I'm not a 'halloween person' as such but don't see any harm in all the fun. Here in the UK as you may know it's not celebrated that much so I don't really know what to actually do with any cards I make. Never the less it doesn't stop me joining in the fun challenges. This is a new HM stamp 'interview with a vampire' and I won it last year would you believe it...many thanks! Coloured with Promarkers, digi paper I beleive to be from the lovely Donna, fab sentiment from the talented Paulette, raffia for my bow, die cuts for my buttons. Hope this one counts for the many challenges I've found...some of them very new to me.
Challenges are....HM 'buttons & bows', Gruffies & Guests 'anyhting plus haloween, CCC 2nd, Glitter n Sparkle 2nd, Bearly Mine 'halloween' as is Ladybug Crafts, OSAAT 'anything with orange', Incy Wincy 'tiac,tac,toe..funny, free, just a little bad', Crafting by designs, QKR Stampede, Bunny Zoes 'animals', Papertake 'superfly...bats, Crafting from the heart and Sentimental Sundays 'buttons & sentiment'.

Hi, I'm back with the card that I'd made last month. Lovely elegant d/load paper from Michele, distressed with walnut stain, glittered rose, alphabet dies, coloured insert added. I didn't have much time and made quite a few to send through the post to special ladies in my life. This one was believed to be bought but my handmade stamp was on the back.....I can imagine the ooooohing and aaaahing that went with it! No doubt this one was greatly received.

Hellooooo everyone! I'm finally back from a very long blog break (my longest since I started blogging)....it seems a lifetime since I was last here and I've really missed it. I did however try to keep an eye on my favourite blogs and tried to make the odd card to show here. I do hope life has been good to all. So onto my wall hanging for a birthday last month, subsequently I made a few more to post to special people. I used fab digi d/load paper from the magnificent Michelle, the bottom sentiment was a freebie too. The brown dotty paper I made myself with dotty stamp using walnut stain ink pad. Quite a lot of die work...the 'happy birthday' is from Wild Rose Studio finished with rhinestones. I also made a matching card using the fab paper which I'll show you soon but i'd like to enter this in some of my fave challenges.

Challenges entered are 10...mostly' anything goes'. Papertake, Polka Doodles, Crafty Sentiments, Catch the bug, ABC 'unique...anything', Creative Inspirations, Dream Valley, Glitter n Sparkle 'B for butterflies, black, brown', Sentimental Sundays 'bling it up and sentiment', Fab n Funky'ribbon'. I've found a new challenge blog so I'm making something to enter that, bye for now!
