a challenge card

this is a wallet card that was made for a swap, and i think it fits this weeks challenge over on ooh la la creations perfectly as the theme is stripes, the image is a penny black and was coloured in with my brush markers, the image is matted up with holographic card and the backing papers i think are from inspirations by papermania??

wow a week with no posts

Sorry i haven't been around much lately ive been under the weather, i have however been blog hopping alot and having a look at your creations, ive just not made much for last few weeks due to this dreaded virus that i cant seem to shift, i had 2 whole weeks of work and went back yesterday, what a mistake i feel that im taking a step back now, and my 3 year old son is getting it now so its a bit miserable in this house at the moment,
im also 32 weeks pregnant so suppose that makes me feel worse for wear too lol,
sorry to rant but i think i needed it as i dont get a whole lot of adult conversation at the moment lol, will be back on form soon i hope and will try to post some creations when ive made some.

a card for 2 challenges

whilst i was able to get some crafting done this morning i decided to have another go at a clallenge as i really enjoy doing them, for this card i chose 2 different challenge blogs, charisma cards which was called cupcake, and dutch dare card challenge no#35 this was called buttons and bows,

abc challenge.....

........A for anniversary, as it is soon to be my 4th anniversary in march i thought it would be perfect to use the challenge from abc challenge for my inspiration,
the image is from third coast stamps i think, its called madamoiselle sophie. i made the blank myself with red card, and punched out some black and red hearts, my hubby likes things nice and simple so i left it like this, what do you think???

a chance to win......

......the new woj stamps, over on katherinas blog celebrating the new release of the medievil collection on feb 14th she is giving away 10 of the new stamps WOW. an example of these wonderful new stamps is above.


some great news and candy

Ive won my first ever blog candy i cant believe it and i only just caught the deadline (phew), im not really the lucky type but maybe my luck is starting to change lol because i won £34 on sat on bonus ball at work too,

so i thought id go on the wonder round my blog lists to see what else is around while my luck is in? you know they say it comes in threes??

here are a couple:
1,Joanne over on her blog is giving away candy as a celebration on getting 10.000 hits which she is close to know, she will draw when she gets that magic 10.000, also as a bit of an extra if she gets up to 100 people who want to watch her blog by then she will offer a runners up candy.
one of the things joanne would like you to do is state your next best hobby/pastime besides crafting, thats a toughie for me but would have to go with going on walks with my hubby and son.

2,Kristen at is giving away some fabby candy just because she can, how nice is that. for this one she would like you to become a follower on her blog, and say what you fave product is, and obviously leave a link on your blog.
my fave product is all my stamps lol i just couldnt pick one. closes on valentines day.

3, and last but not least mel over is offering candy for reaching 2000 hits and losing her first half stone, this one closes on 15th feb.

bartender edwin

I decided to give Edwin a bit of fresh air today and made a card with him, isnt he soo cute? i coloured him in using my brush markers and sakura pens inked up the edges with bronze ink, mounted him on some pearly finish browny/bronze card and some purple card,then i found some lovely brown spotty ribbon so thought that might look nice, i stamped up one of my penny black greetings and layered that the same as the image, the border at the botttom is from the kanban mens range of sticky borders.

friday sketchers no 37

over on i decided to use my new tilda stamp for this card i coloured image with brush markers, the chipboard greeting is from pocket full of posies range, and as usual ive doodled around all the edges with my sakura pens,and to finish ive just put 2 purple gems on.


a challenge card for penny black and stamp something

I thought id try get my creative juices going again as like so many others i seem to have the dreaded cold, firstly i went with the challenge from which was to have a go with a circle card, i initially thought this was easy but making it look good was very hard indeed, im still not pleased with finished product,
and also this card was made with another challenge in mind from
here they were asking for something with a summery theme/colours,
To make this card i just used my compass to make the circle (its been years since ive used one as well lol) the papers are from the retro floral dovecraft range, image and greeting are from pennyblack, i put paper flowers all the way round and small gems in the middle for the summery feel, and job done.
