Don't shout at me.....






but I made Christmas cards.....
It's literally taken me about 5 goes to upload this, I think Blogger doesn't like me at the mo cos I've posted much more than I would normally....
Anyway, like I said, don't be too cross with me!

I'm doing it again....


I'm posting twice in a day again. Don't worry, I'm back to work FT again on Weds so I shall possibly go back to posting once a week at the most :)
I've made another card, this time it's a Chicken Soup (recipe #9) card. The colour combo chosen by Clare was exactly the colours I love so I literally dived right in. Wanted to make a 'clean' card this time and it was almost alien to me not to grunge stuff up...

Edgy Twist.....


The twist @ Twisted this week was EDGE so I cut the edge of the card to make a pretty one :) The papers are My Minds Eye. Just recently I use MME or Bo Bunny over anything else, it's a bit of a love affair I have. Pearls and gems are Prima and the velvet ribbon was cut with my Papertrey Ink eyelet die. The 8teen is of course American Crafts Thickers :)

By the skin of my teeth...




I wasn't going to do this one, then I looked at the box FULL of thickers and other such sticky alphas.... So here is Chicken Soup recipe #8. Looking forward to seeing what the recipe is tonight :)

Two posts in One DAY!!!!

Sorry about the excitement but sometimes it takes me an age just to get one post out in a week, but 2 in one day - it has to be holiday time yes?

Anyway, please go to this lady's etsy shop... Lucy makes the most beautiful things and shouldn't be missed..... xx

Another Waltzing Mouse Competition


Claire is giving away some new September sets to a random winner of their latest challenge. Don't know if you've played with Waltzing Mouse Stamps but they stamp so beautifully and the designs are really gorgeous. Can't wait to see what she's got for the September sets :)

Have a lovely week xx

Chicken Souping my mojo Recipe #7


Are you inspired by the recipes on the Chicken Soup Blog? I loved recipe #7 and made this card with it :) I went for the layers and soft colours and used scraps - always good.....

Stretching the Twist...


Hmmmm, the twist for Sketch #020 was fabric and the brad has a fabric covering but then it's covered in some plastic stuff so I think I got it through by the skin of my teeth!
The paper is Daisy Bucket, flowers are a varied collection and I think the sentiment stickers were My Little Bicycle. Very into blue at the mo so lots of my cards have something with this lighter blue on them :)

Waltzing Mouse Challenge



Hi :) I did this for a challenge on the Waltzing Mouse blog. It's to use one of their free templates and some of their stamps. As I'm addicted to using their stamps at the mo, it was no great hardship ;) Rumour has it that they have some new stamps being released on the 1st Sept too....

Saturday Sketch 31st July


{Insert big grin here} I bought 2 sets of Waltzing Mouse stamps (as said in earlier post) and I've not really put them down since :) They are addictive and these ones are great for layering, so I started with velvet paper... as you do ;)

I'm putting this one forward for this week's Sketch Saturday....

Twisty Time again Sketch #018



I love playing with sketches like this one over at Twisted and ironically it was Anam who gave me the newspaper print flowers many moons ago.

I have a new addiction, it's called Waltzing Mouse Stamps. I know that they've been about for a while, but I've only just found them and goodness me they are a ting of beauty. Been playing with them this weekend and will update later in the week to show what I've been up to :)
