It's Saturday again so that means a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'.
It's our turn on Team Fi to create for the theme of Balls!
You can interpret that as you will - rugby balls, beach balls, balls up. 

Whatever you fancy, just remember you need to have some stamping on it to be able to win.

Sweet Stampin'- Shabby Chic

Hi Guys

Today my little girl is 11.
I can't believe how big she is getting.
We are going for a family lunch then off to get a gecko or 2. Then we have friends round this evening.

Anyway back to business.
It's a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin' today.
Shabby Chic.
Sponsored by Bunny Zoe Crafts.
Plus our monthly sponsor The Ribbon Girl.

Now this ain't my thing but that's one of the reasons to be on a DT. It pushes me into doing things and trying techniques I wouldn't bother with normally, that's the Challenge part of it.
Adding in the fact that I was as wrung out as an old dish cloth from the evil bug we had and this one was definitely a challenge.

Coloured with Promarkers.
A bit of stickles on the icing of the cake.

Paper is My Minds Eye - Blush. Distressed and inked with Old Paper.
Layered some Pale Pink Glittered Organza Ribbon over Hessian Mesh Ribbon (The Ribbon Girl)
Inked the image and doilie then chopped up the sentiment and inked it too.
Stuck on a few flowers and pearls.

I'd like to enter her at

In the Pink - Pink and Pearlie
Crafty Ribbons - Anything with Ribbon
Dutch Dare- Ribbon, Distressing, Birthday
LOTV - Pretty in Pink

Hope over to see what wonders the rest of the Team have created

Aud Sentiments - Two Word Sentiment

Hi Peeps

It's my first post for Aud Sentiments and I nearly missed it due to the horrid illness we've had.
If the image wasn't already coloured and sentiment printed I probably would have.
As it is it's a lot simpler than originally planned but I like it.

Anyway over at Aud Sentiments it's the mid Challenge reminder. 
We want Two Word sentiments and preferably not Happy Birthday.
Our sponsor is the great Bugaboo, you can find something for any occasion there.

I've used Deacon Swing

He's coloured with Promarkers and cut out.

I computer generated the sentiment.
Stuck the lot onto some cloud paper.

I'd like to enter him at

Remember to hop over and see what the rest of the Design Team have created to inspire you.

Been feeling off while writing this, may need that bucket again!

Hope you and your's all stay healthy

Creative Craft Challenge - numbers

Sorry it's late. Been cleaning up vomit since Friday and spent last night with my own head in a bucket.

Creative Craft Challenge has the new theme of Numbers. 
Use them how you like for a chance at the fab sponsors prize from Melonheadz.

I did have a sponsors image coloured up but the illness meant it never got put together. But luckily I had a card already made for one of Emma's teachers that fit the theme.

Image with sentiment is Saturated Canary - Grow
I got her as a freebie but she's now in the shop.
(If you don't follow your fav digi designers you should, 
lots of them give out Freebies that are only available for short times before going in the shop.)
Coloured by Promarkers

Background is a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

I'd like to enter her at 
Papertake Weekly - Old, New, Borrowed, Blue (old blue paper,new image, borrowed embossing folder)

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the DT have created to inspire you.

I'm Back, with sad and happy news.

No card today. 
We have a death in the family, Emma's pet gecko and the only thing I've made is a coffin for him.

She's sad and has shed lots of tears but in true fashion she is already planning the next gecko.

I have some good news too.
I'm a new Design Team member over at the super Aud Sentiments so watch this space.
