Hello!

Good evening everyone!
Bank Holiday Monday has been its' traditional self - wet! Yep, it's raining now but, to be fair, it wasn't too bad today.mNot that it mattered much anyhoo as I didn't go anywhere for it to be a problem!
Ended up with a 'tired' head today as I may have imbibed a little too much alcomahol last night!
Hey ho!

Anyway, onto the post title - hello - which is the theme for my CAS card today!
I love it!
Sometimes a creation just 'pops' more than others I think and this one is deffo a favourite of mine!
It surprises me how I can make something as lovely as this when I'm not even trying very hard. An idea 'pops' into my head and then really good stuff follows! Yaaaaay! Toot-toot (that's me blowing my own trumpet!)

I've only used a few items to keep it CAS (my favourite challenge!)
White cardstock
Grey paper from Dovecraft
Butterfly stamps from Kaisercraft
Stazon Ink for the stamps
hello sentiment from Pink Petticoat
1 small pink gem

I layered the butterflies to give a little depth to the images and added a little sparkly gem to the 3rd one. I've also used little foam pads on the white cardstock and beneath the 'hello' sentiment.
This is being entered into these challenges :

The Outlawz - Sunday CAS 'Hello'
Simply Create Too - #68 monochromatic - grey and white
QKR Stampede - #102 monochrome - grey and white
Glitter n Sparkle - #99 Use Butterflies

Tiddly Inks!

Hi everyone!
It's a beautiful summer/autumnal day here today so, yes, I've got loads of washing out and on the line!!!!
Hahahaha, and the best of it? It isn't even mine! My daughters machine has died so her hubby brought me 2 loads yesterday as he knows just how much I love it!
Tee hee :)

Anyhoo, today has been a little disappointing as we had planned on doing a car boot sale this morning because for the first time in aaaaages, we (me, Kristin and Dale) were all free this morning and we were to borrow Micks van but, as these things happen, he won't be home until later on today. It was disappointing enough yesterday as he ought to have been coming home then but.....hey ho, that's the way things always go around here!

So, I decided to do the washing, clean the bathroom and the loo room too! And now I'm catching up with a little blog about my Sunday morning and about this lovely card I've made for a couple of challenges this week.

I have used a stamp and an embossing folder from Tiddlyinks. I got these free with my latest issue of Quick Cards Made Easy.

Items used :

Kraft cardstock
LOTV Krafty Christmas paper pad
Core'dinations coloured cardstock
Martha Stewart border punch
Sizzix snowflake dies
Ranger Aged Mahogany Distress Stickles
DecoArt Glamour Dust
Spectrum Noir Markers





               
The challenges I'm entering are 


  So, now I'm feeling really Christmassy so I think it would be a good idea to plan my Christmas cards for this year....or I could just go and make some breakfast! Tee hee xxxx

Dig Deep!

Hello all!
How are we all today? Hope you're all feeling crafty with loads of mojo to spread around!
I've been very busy making fab creations for the various DTs I'm on and this card is for this fortnights' challenge at Crafty Creations Challenge blogspot.
The challenge is hosted by DT member Marlene and sponsored by Craft Classes Online who offer a whole range of online crafting classes throughout the year.

The theme of Hazels' challenge is to 'Dig Deep - Use old Stash'!

So, after I'd chosen this really cute bunny image, I had a mooch around and found a piece of ribbon which I cut from a dress over a year ago and a little flower which had been squashed into the bottom corner of my flower box!

I used LOTV papers and a Somebunny to Love stamp to create the card.




Have a go at the challenge! You might just surprise yourself  :)

Autumn!

Good morning all!
Yes, I think summer has finally come to an end and Autumn is slowly creeping in! Although, looking outside this morning, it's lovely and sunny if not a little cooler than recently.
Oh well; there's always another summer next year!
So, onto todays post!
This little card is for Quick Cards Made Easy magazine after their shout out on Facebook for some autumnal style cards.
Couldn't wait to use their free downloadable paper with these cute stamps from Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.







I hope you like it!
