A Little Bit Naughty

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and had a good weekend.  Spent Saturday painting doors and woodwork in our hallway upstairs.  On Sunday I did manage a bit of crafty time but back to painting today.

I am going into hospital tomorrow to have a procedure called an Angioplasty.  Hopefully, this will sort out my problems with pain in my legs when walking.  Should be out on Wednesday so please forgive me if I am not able to visit your lovely blogs for a couple of days.

Anyway, today I am sharing a card that was made using the A Little Bit Naughty CD from Kraftyhands.


For full details of how I made this card please pop over to the Kraftyhands blog.  You will also find lots of inspiration from the design team.

Flights of Fancy at The Crafting Cafe

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and have had a good week.
Today I am popping by to share some inspiration for our current challenge over at The Crafting Cafe.  Our theme for this month is:
Flights of Fancy

Our sponsor for this challenge is Dr Digi's House of Stamps and the prize for the winner is 2 free images of their choice.

Here is my inspiration project using a cute image called Quackers from our sponsor.


I coloured the image with promarkers before matting onto black cardstock.  I also added a little distress ink around the edge of the image.  For the background I used my new brushos.  I sprinkled the brushos onto white cardstock and then spritzed with water and let them work their magic.  The colours are really vibrant in real life.  I did the sentiment on my computer and finished the card with some ribbon, a bow and some heart buttons.  Turned out quite cute I think.

Thanks for popping by and you still have until the end of the month to enter the challenge.  Just pop over to The Crafting Cafe for full challenge details.

It's A Man's World at Crafting Musketeers

For A Special Lady and New Stash

Hi Folks
I had a lovely day at Ally Pally on Saturday with my Mum.  We met up with a few blogging buddies and had a great time watching demos and seeing all the inspiration around.  There are a couple of pictures at the end of this post of the new stash I acquired.

When I got back from Ally Pally I had a letter waiting for me from the hospital.  As some of you are aware I have been having problems with my legs for some time.  This has resulted in difficulty walking long distances.  After my last consulation it was decided that I was going to be referred for an angioplasty as the problem is my arteries in my legs.  This is now scheduled for 21st April.  I should only be in hospital for the day and the recovery period is quite quick.  So hopefully in a couple of weeks I should be able to walk better and for longer, fingers crossed.

Anyway, enough of my waffling and lets get onto crafty matters.  Today I would like to share a card that I made for my Mum's birthday in March.


I used a lovely flower stamp from Honey Doo Crafts to create the flowers on pearlescent card.  I stamped and heat embossed the flowers before cutting them out and shaping them.  The flourish behind the flowers is also from Honey Doo Crafts.  The sentiment is a stamp from another stamp set that I have.  I kept the colour scheme simple and added a ribbon bow, pearl embellishment and dazzlers to the centre of the flowers.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I really appreciate all the comments that you leave me.  Please accept my apologies if I don't get round to visiting all your blogs.  Things are getting busy on the wedding front here for my daughter's wedding in June.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
One Crazy Stamper - Anything goes
Penny Black and More - Birthdays
Creative Inspirations - A trio of ..... flowers
Aud Sentiments - Birthday sentiment
Sister Act - Anything goes
613 Avenue Create - Anything goes
Corrosive - Floral fantasy
Scribble and Scrap - Anything goes
The Ribbon Girl - Add ribbon or lace
Craft Your Passion - Anything goes
Incy Wincy - Embossing
Crafting from the Heart - Anything goes
Not Just Cards - Anything goes

Now as promised here are a couple of photos of my new crafty stash that I got from Ally Pally.


The essentials, stamps and ribbons.


A few dies, lots of flowers and my special purchase - a set of brushos.  I have had a play with them today and love them.  Watch out for a card coming soon.

Use Kraft

Here is my inspiration project using a cute stamp Dinkies Spikey Flower.


For the topper I stamped directly onto the kraft card and just added some stickles for a bit of sparkle.  The base of the easel card was created by just randomly stamping with the spikey flower stamp.  I added some dotty paper which is also from Little Claire.  A sentiment, some dotty ribbon and card candi finished the card.

Anything Goes at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well.  It has been very windy here the last couple of days and quite cold with it.  Just hope the nicer weather turns up soon.  I had a successful shopping trip on Monday and managed to get my dress, handbag and fascinator for the wedding.  Just got my shoes and a jacket to get now.  Less than 3 months to go now and very excited.  

Anyway, today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is:
Anything Goes
A nice easy one for you all.

We have two sponsors for this week's challenge:
Lemon Shortbread - prize of 3 digi images to the winner
Deedees Digis - prize of a $15 gift certificate

Here is my inspiration project using a cute image from Lemon Shortbread.


I decorated a cute little gift bag for this challenge.  The image was coloured in promarkers and I then covered the image with a glitter sticky sheet from Little Claire.  The sheet is transparent so you can still see the image but you get a lot of sparkle.  I wanted to try and create a mystical feel.  The image was then mounted onto black card.  The sentiment is a die from All Occasion dies.  Some ribbon and a bow finished the gift bag.  The butterfly sparkles at the top is a strip that I got from a friend for my birthday.  You can either use it as a strip or cut off the individual butterflies.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges for full challenge details.  Don't forget to check out the inspiration from my talented teamies.

Not Just Cards Guest Designer Project

Hi Folks
A quick post this morning as I am going shopping with my daughters soon to try and find my wedding outfit.  Of course, there is also shoes, handbag, jewellery and fascinator to find as well.  Could be a long trip lol.

Today I am here to share my final project as guest designer with Not Just Cards challenge blog.  It has been a pleasure to be part of the team and I would like to thank Zoe for asking me. 

Here is my inspiration project using a cute image called Birthday Turtle from The Stamping Boutique.


I coloured the image using my promarkers.  I then die cut a shape out of kraft card using one of my spellbinders dies to mount the image onto.  For the background I used plain pearlescent paper.  I added some dots using my distress inks and pencil eraser.  The stitching around the edge was done with a fine liner pen.  The birthday sentiment is an All Occasion die from Robert Addams.  I cut out one in black and one in kraft and then offset them to give a shadow effect.  Some ribbon, flowers and pearls completed the tag.

Thanks for popping by and why not pop over to Not Just Cards challenge blog and check it out.  Would love to see some of you enter the challenge.

Our sponsor for this week is Crafts U Love with a prize of a £10 voucher.

Boys and Girls Come Out To Play

Hi Folks
Hope things are okay with you all.  I have a busy day today as I am going with my daughter to have the alterations fitting for her wedding dress.  It is a few months since we bought the dress so will be lovely to see her in it again.  The wedding is getting all too near now with less than 3 months to go.  Very exciting.

Anyway, as it's Wednesday it's time for a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is:
Boys and girls come out to play
We would like to see either a boy or a girl image on your project.  Or if you are feeling adventurous why not use both.

Lacy Sunshine - prize of a $20 gift certificate to the store
Imagine That - prize of a $10 gift certificate to the store

Here is my inspiration project using an image from Lacy Sunshine.  As you can see I decided to have an image with a boy and a girl.


I coloured the image using my promarkers before mounting onto a doily.  The papers are from a paper pack from Kraftyhands.  I mounted onto kraft card after distressing all the edges with my distress tool.  Some ribbon, roses, a bow, parchment butterfly and pearls finished the project.  Quite a vintage feel to it I think.
