monday morning crafting session with jilly

as usual on a Monday morning me and Jilly choose a challenge to do and both had a go at it together its a really good way to see how different a card can look even when you have used same sketch, well yesterday we chose sketch 21 on this is my card above i used the Laura Ashley papers and one of my penny black stamps, i wasn't at all sure i liked it to start with but changed my mind when it was finished, why not go and have a look at Jilly's card over on her blog see how she did the same sketch differently,

these are some of my most recent efforts and actually im rather pleased with them!

the first one i made for a family members 18th he is a training chef so i used some backing paper i got free with a magazine and the second one i made today after getting some inspiration from a card i made of a challenge blog which i havent uploaded as of yet,the colour hasnt come out too well but its actually black and white with some silver on it.

excellent blog candy on crafty crafts

donna at krafty crafts is giving away some excellent blog candy, it is 7 magnolia stamps, thats right 7!!!! as i dont have any magnolia stamps at all (yes i know its terrible) i thought i would have a go. why not have a look yourself? here is the link ........
an absolute steal if you ask me. she also wanted to see one of your best pieces of art which i already have here on my blog, the crafting morning session card a male card with no blue. its one of my best cards i think??

im a very lucky girl

I cant quite believe it yet, its still sinking in lol but my darling hubby has bought me my very own laptop ;.) im absolutely amazed lol, ive been asking for one for ages but he always laughed at me, but then our pc broke down and we decided to get a shared laptop but then out of the blue he said i could have my own and he bought a second hand one of a friend and i had a new one (wahey) he has also let me buy all the bind it all stuff to (double wahey) you would start to think he's feeling guilty for something but i know the real reason lol, he is upgrading the motorbike to his dream bike so he's trying to make amends for spending a fortune on that,
well im taking advantage whilst i can, this wont last for long....

crafting morning

on monday me and my friend jilly had a crafting session, as im struggling with inspiration at the moment we decided to have a go at one of the blog challenges, after having a look at several we chose as our source. we had a lot of fun as this is a mans card but no blue lol its a lot harder than we thought because as we looked through my masculine backing papers we realised they were all blue in one way or another so we made our own backgrounds lol, i made mine by cutting out a piece of card and stamping the bakground on with my see ds stamps, i was really pleased with the outcome, i used my penny black stamp from the bubbly range and used my white pen to add depth, i was really pleased with the result, to see jilly's interpretation of the same theme take a look here we will try to make this a regular thing if our little boys will let us lol.
