sugar bowl sketch challenge 28 Marlenes sketch

I was so excited when I saw that the sugar bowl were giving away manga stamps as this wks prize as I just love them! I really don't have enough hence my desire to win these lovely ones up for grabs! So I chose to use this cute Manga girl in my interpretation of the sketch over on the sugarbowl. I also had to include lace. I used papermania acetate for the base of this card and papermanis patterned paper. Lace ribbon and checkered ribbon from my stash. The flowers are mostly prima and the setiment stamp is stampin up. I hope it's good enough to win! Apologies for the poor picture quality it was taken in the evening by my desktop lamp light!Thanks for looking again!

Anya ink challenge

This is my card for the anya ink challenge it must be a card without printed papers. For my card I used just 2 bits of plain cardstock. I stamped the blue card stock with the butterfly stamp from the Autumn leaves spring swirl stamp collection by Rhonna Farrer. I used flowers, beads, twine etc from my stash. The foliage is cut with a Mcgill pine branch punch and the metal flower from the hobby house.The lettering is arctic frog rub ons. Lastly I used the pretty Flutter Anya stamp to finish it off coloured with Prismas. Thanks for looking again!!

Club Anya saturday sketch/Pretty in pink/hearts 4heart's sake

I'm a bit late again for the saturday sketch and really should be doing something for monday or even wednesday! But I loved this sketch and there was no time limit at club Anya so I made this valentines card with Papermania and Rusty pickle papers, rub on sentiments, maya road ribbon (I think!) and a miss Anya stamp from the greeting farm. I'm also putting this forward for the heart for hearts sake challenge on the anyone for anya blog as the card must incorporate hearts in a velentines theme! It's amazing how 1 card can fit several challenges, this one also fits the pretty in pink challenge C4C21 on the crazy for challenges blog too with my very full on pink theme!Thanks for looking again! xx

Rubbish at blogging!

Ok I'm officially rubbish at this. I spend too much time on facebook and then there's the crafting I would love to do, the exercise I should be doing and also my house and 3 children to attend to, not to mention working at the wknds, good job I haven't made my blog public knowledge yet as I was waiting until I had bucked my ideas up for that! More xmas stuff I made, Napkin rings and name card holders for xmas day. I also made favour boxes for after dinner too!

These are the advent buckets I made for xmas, saves having the calendars round the house! I loved making them and can put 3 little sweets in each one for the kids and they look pretty round the house too which is a bonus!
