Truly Scrumptious Challenge 26

Hello everyone, and welcome

Its Truly Scrumptious Wednesday again....BUT.....not any old's a very special day for's the first birthday of our fantastic Truly Scrumptious challenge blog.

Wow I can't believe we've been here a whole year....fantastic.  Thanks to everyone who has joined us over the past year, we hope you'll continue to join in the challenges we set.  Special thanks to my design team buddies, who have helped with fantastic challenges, and stunning cards.

We have a stunning sketch over on the Truly Scrumptious blog with a fantastic prize up for grabs.  Here's what I've contributed this time:

This image is super cute, and is on my card courtesey of Fleur - A Passion For Craft, who kindly loaned me her stamp.  I just love it.  He's sitting up rather than laying in my card, which is probably completly the wrong angle, but hey, it's too late now.

The butterflies are made from shrink plastic.  I love the idea of using it on cards, and am completely inspired by my friend Louise at Crafty Lou's Small World, who is the queen of shrink plastic. Take a look, I promise you won't be disappointed.

Thanks for taking the time to visit, why not have a go at our challenge this week, and see if you are lucky enough to win our super prize.

Mojo Monday

Hi all

Hope you are having a good day.

Seeing as my mojo is beginning to return at last, I thought I'd join in with the Mojo Monday challenge this week.

It's a fabulous sketch as usual, so here's my entry.

I love this little chap swinging on a rope swing.  The stamp was kindly loaned to me by my lovely friend Fleur, thanks hun.....Reminds me of my son Jordan, he used to get up to those kind of things.   Great for boys cards.

The card, papers and background stamps are by Stampin' Up!

Sorry my posts have become rather short these days, working full time again, and not alot of spare time.  Thanks for looking, and I'll catch up with you again soon.

Take care.

Craft Weekend

Hi all

I've just some back from a super crafting weekend in a log cabin in the woods with eight of my crafty friends.  It was so cool.  We had a fab time, crafting busily away, watching dvd's, drinking wine, taking photo's, walking in the woods and generally having a good old laugh. 

I'll have more to show soon, but for the moment, here's a photo I shot this morning.

I'm really pleased with this photo.   I crouched for ages on soggy wet leaves, snapping away with my Canon EOS 450D,  The shutter noise didn't seem to bother this pheasant, it just kept pecking away happily in the undergrowth.  I'm working on the other photo's, so they're not ready yet, but I'll post a few more when they've been edited.

Hi all.

No cards to show today but I do have a photo that I've been editing in Photoshop.  It's a shot of my son and his best friend at our local nature reserve last summer.  Thought I'd do the popular technique of highlighting a portion of the photo, but instead of highlighting in colour, I've done it in reverse. 

The background is colour and the subject black and white.  I love this effect.  Let me know what you think.
