Happy Easter....

Happy Easter to all my crafty friends.  Hope you have all had a good time.  I have been to Yorkshire with my hubby and dog for 4 whole days...very unusual that hubby gets any time off over Easter.  We had a great time and such lovely weather too ....

Silly me forgot to post her DT card though before I left so I'm afraid it's a little late..

Nutcrafters challenge this month has been chosen by Jo - Go Girly!!  What a great choice...

I love this oh so cute Stamp - very Alice in Wonderland I thought -   coloured with my Promarkers, gingham card from one of the shows, and butterflies and flowers from my stash..very girly.

do come and say hello HERE great prizes up for grabs and there are some fab new designs from our lovely Katie...

Right off to make some dinner.

Hello there followers - Gosh what a day, started with problems and ended with them too !!!  I am pooped and to top it off I have "issues" with Orange.  Only wanted to upgrade my IPhone - can't be that difficult surely???  Wanna bet!!!!
Anyway, I just wanted to let you k now it's time for a new challenge at Nutcrafters, thank you all those that took part in my challenge last week.  This week our chellenge is Tots or Teens - well I chose Tots...teenagers are a devil to craft for lol....

I have added some pre-cut bunting some candy card and a sentiment  from craftwork cards and finally a couple of little elephants from my stash.

Nutcrafter's Challenge

Good morning - It is my turn to host the Nutcrafters Challenge and I have chosen a colour theme

"Pink and Brown"
I just love this colour combo, so come on get those promarkers, flexmarkers, copics etc out and share your colouring skills with us at Nutcrafters - of course you don't have to use you colouring pens you could just find some yummy pink and brown papers - oh I am thinking marshmallows and chocolates now.

Now this is one of the new images that the lovely Katie has designed - she has got so many lovely stamps and digis about to be launched and lucky ole me gets to play with them all.

Oh happy bunny !!!

Coloured with my promarkers, DCWV backing papers, organza ribbon and bow, a few pearls and my sentiment is a computer generated one.  Oh yes and a ribbon slide given to me by a lovely friend - well actually she gave me a bag full.

I shall be at work as you read this but I shall be counting down the hours as I am off to Yorkshire for a few days and soooooo looking forward to it.

Until next time - happy crafting

Fan-Tastic Tuesday

Christmas cards in March ???

Well 1st March and off I went to a Stampin Up Group and what did we make ????

Christmas cards of course!!!!

This Poinsetta stamp has to be one of my favourites and there are so many fab sentiment and verse stamps to choose from - think I spent more time choosing which to use than I did actually stamping....

 We stamped the poinsettia twice onto Vellum and then cut them out before sticking them onto the card with sticky buds.  I have embossed mine with white detail embossing powder but some of the other girls used glittery embossing powder which was really effective.

We then used another of my favourite sets - trees

This one was covered in glitter at the end and the inside is just as pretty as the outside

Just thought I would share them with you.

Have to dash as it is daughter's birthday today and I still have some pressies to wrap and cakes to finish.

Enjoy your Tuesday evening

Nutcrafters Challenge for Today

Good Evening followers - here is my DT card for Nutcrafters

I have used Promarkers to colour - backing papers are ones from a shabby chic set I won - swirls from the NEC last year and flowers from a friend :)  The craft ribbon is like cord material and was a bargain from Boyes in Bridlington £1 for a huge roll so I just had to buy in burgundy and one in a dark grey...finally added some pearly gems

Hope you like and if you fancy joining us with our Ribbon and Bling challenge HERE is the link

Happy Crafting

Final DT card !!!

A very sparkly Christmas card - this is my final DT card for the CRAFT Challenges.  I have loved working with the fab team but after much deliberation I have made the decision to step down.  I have so many projects I want to make and so little spare hours, so for now I am going to concentrate on my long list of projects I have on my desk.

I have coloured the gorgeous image from  Lacy Sunshine Stamps (what fab designs) - Bubbles Ice-Skating with my Promarkers and then added some glamour dust to her headband, and top.  The lovely sparkly ribbon was from a local Craft shop, sentiment and bow from my ever growing stash.

Will end my post with love and hugs to my teamies over at CRAFT Challenges and I wish them all well for the future.  Huge thank you to Jo for having me as one of her team for so long.
