Throw Us Some Shapes!

Morning! Today's challenge over at My Mum's Craft Shop Challenges is 'Throw Us Some Shapes' - so we want to see anything other than square/rectangular creations! I was asked by my neighbour to whip her something up for her niece's 18th and she said she's a 'girly girl', so I thought it would be a perfect oppotunity to make a double easel. Here's my card (get ready for lots of pics - soz!):

Image - Saturated Canary coloured with Spectrum Noirs.
Card Blank - Double Easel Kanban.
Papers - K & Co.
Sentiments - Craftwork Cards.
Other - Nesties and Cuttlebug used to cut image/number mats. Slice used to cut out numbers/letters. Letters and numbers covered with Glossy Accents, numbers then covered with glitter. Gems from stash and positioned with Bazzill Basics Jewel templates. Flowers cut with MS punch.

Hope you like it! Thanks loads for popping by - I'm trying to get round and visit everyone over the next day or so. And don't forget to check out my teamies amazing creations over at MMCS - and join in with the challenge of course!! TTFN......xx

Tres Chic

Hello! Today's challenge over at My Mum's Craft Shop Challenges is 'Ribbons and Buttons' - another nice easy one for everyone! Here's my card:
Image - MilkCoffee coloured with Spectrum Noirs (with a bit of glossy accents on her specs!)
Papers/Ribbon/Bows/Buttons - All Papermania Capsule collection.
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards.

The image is from a new discovery of mine - MilkCoffee. They have the cutest characters! I liked this one cos you don't often find images of lovely ladies with specs (and as a spec wearer myself, I like to fly the flag LOL!) If you fancy a nose, you can buy the images in their etsy shop.
I'm going to enter my card into the following challenges:
And I think that's it. Thanks for popping by - and don't forget to join in with the challenge. Bye for now.......xx

Bee My Valentine..........please x

Morning! There's a new sketch by Maggie today over at Sunday Sketch and Stamp. Apologies for being a wee bit late with my post today but I've come down with this dreadful cold that seems to be sweeping the nation at the moment and last night, I was up nearly all night cos I couldn't sleep what with the dripping tap nose and one thing and the other - and then I fell asleep this morning and so wasn't awake to do my post on time doh!! Anyway, here's my card....
Image - Kraftin' Kimmie 'Valentine Willard' coloured with Spectrum Noirs.
Papers - MME 'Love Me'.
Other - Slice used to cut letters and heart and Gems added from stash.

Dont'cha just love Willard? I fell in love with the Christmas version of him and had to have this image but would you believe it's the first time I've used it? Slapped wrists for me!!! I am actually a big Kraftin' Kimmie fan and have got quite a few of her stamps that still need inking - I really am gonna make a concerted effort this year to ink up more of my neglected rubber!! Although I was naughty last week cos it was Kimmie's birthday and she had some amazing offers in her store which even made it worthwhile with the shipping from Canada!! And I was hugely impressed when they arrived yesterday, which I think is pretty speedy all the way from there!!
I'm going to enter my card into the following challenges:
Right, that's about it methinks! Anyhoo, ta-ta for now, I'll be doing the rounds in a bit......xx

It must be love!!

Morning! There's a new challenge starting today over at My Mum's Craft Shop Challenges and yep, you've guessed it, this week we want you to 'feel the luuuurrrrvvvve'!!! I knew I had a couple of super cute Elzybells stamps that would be suitable and so I decided to dig those out and then I couldn't decide between two stamp sets, so I just made two cards!! Here they are:

Images - Elzybells coloured with Spectrum Noirs.
DP (Hearts) - Cupcake Cards and Crafts.
Cardstock - Coredinations and Bazzill Basics.
Also used - Circle Nestibilites, MFT Open Scallop Border Die, Crafts Too Embossing Folder.

I know I've probably said this before but I love Elzybells! I was lucky enough when the store was closing down to be able to buy almost all of the stamps that I wanted (so I've still got a heck of a lot to get through!!) - and did you see the stamps that Elizabeth (the artist behind Elzybells recently brought out for Penny Black?) I love how the stamp sets work together - I stamped the background of the sweets and chocs - and the sentiments are so much fun (they say 'I love ya, that's no bull' and 'I wouldn't replace you for all the chocolate in the world! (this is a non binding agreement)). Hee, hee, love 'em!!
I'm also entering my card/s into the following challenges:
Right, that's it from me for now - gotta dash cos I need to take the little muttley out! Hope you like my cards and that they've at least given you a smile!! Don't forget to hop over to check out my DT teamies gorgeous cards (we've got some new members too!) and join in with the challenge!! See you later alligator..........xx

You make life wonderful............x

Evening Everyone! Well, the snow finally arrived in London last night and so today we've got a couple of inches of the stuff. I love it when it's all thick and fluffy, it's when it starts turning to icy mush I don't like it!!

Anyway, here's tonight's card:
Image - Simply Sassy from Sugar Nellies coloured with Spectrum Noirs.
Papers - Fancy Pants 'Love Story'/Pink Card - Bazzill Basics.
Sentiment - LOTV.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Phew! Just a few challenges tonight - funnily enough, I didn't even make this card for any challenges but then when I looked online, it seems they're all either red, pink and white or valentine's/love. I've gone with the colour challenges more cos I'm sure I'll make another card that'll fit into the other theme!!
Right, well I'm off to watch a bit of telly and to have a mooch around blogland and visit some of you ladies. Enjoy the rest of your evenings. TTFN........xx
