Truly Scrumptious Challenge 24

Hi all and happy Wednesday to you.

It's time for another challenge from Truly Scrumptious.  This week we have been inspired with a super sketch from our lovely Nicole. The optional extra this time is to add stitching to your design. Ooops....I forgot this part, so I have absolutely no stitching whatsoever to my card. Still it is optional so I'm ok.

So here's my design team entry for this one.

The card is from Stampin' Up! and the paper is stamped with a variety of images all by Stampin' Up! to add more interest.  I coloured with alcohol markers and added a little glitter in the background. 

I added some blinged up paper flowers, and punched scrolls to finish. 
Why not pop on over to Truly Scrumptious and take a look at the rest of the teams work, and see details of what's on offer to win this time.

Mojo Monday Week 121

Hi all.

It's been a while since I've really felt like crafting, but my mojo is returning little by little. I thought I'd join in with the Mojo Monday challenge this week. As Valentines Day is not too far away, I thought I'd make a card with that in mind.

I actually used one of the Magnolia Halloween stamps, but thought it would double as a hot little love devil.  The base card is from Stampin' Up!, as are the background and text stamps.  If you want more details of how you can get them, just drop me an email. 

I added a little red glitter to the trident.  Tildas tail's got a little heart on the end of it, but I exagerated it by punching a heart with a punch from Stampin' Up!, stuck it on, and covered it with glossy accents.  Hope you like it.  Maybe you can adapt your stamps to make them fit other occasions too.

Take care

Truly Scrumptious Challenge 23

Hi all

Hope you're no too snowed in. We've been lucky and only had a light flurry in Peterborough, and no settlement, but I know the rest of the UK seems to have been covered in several inches of the cold white stuff. 

Anyway the first Truly Scrumptious challenge of the year has been launched today, we're all back after our christmas break and raring to go.  It's a fantastic sketch challenge, with the option to use a colour scheme of pink, black and green.

Here's what I did:

I used a fantastic Gorjuss Girl image and coloured with alcohol markers.  It's mainly green and pink with just a touch of black and a little touch of doodling.  Why not join in our challenge. Just pop along to the Truly Scrumptious blog to see the details, and while you're there take a look at the rest of the design team cards. 

Take care.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all my blogging buddies.  Hope you've had a good Christmas, and your 2009 has ended on a good note.

I just thought I'd share a few photos of my beautiful Christmas tree, that was trashed by my naughty kitty cat Coco in less than one week.  The tree stands 7 feet tall and Coco's been climbing up and down it.  It gradually got worse over the Christmas period, and is now looking completely delapidated.  So here's the photo's

See al the gaps where the branches have fallen off...tut...tut...The beads are hanging down, and the Christmas baubels smashed on the floor. 
Hope she grows out of it by next Christmas.
