Aud Christmas Sentiments

Hello Bloggy friends.

 I've just noticed that I have exceeded 50 followers.
Doing a happy dance!!

Watch this space as I think that deserves a celebration.

But onto today's business.

It's mid challenge inspiration time at Aud Sentiments.
We want your Christmas Sentiments.

Our sponsor this time is the fab Robyn's Fetish who supplied this lovely image.

The image is In the Cold.
Coloured with Promarkers.

Cut out with Nesties Label#1 and "snowed" on.
I computer generated the sentiment and then Fluffy Stuffed it. 
Loving this effect!
Some sticky "snowballs" to finish.
I'm not 100% happy with it but didn't have time to do something else.

I'd like to share it at

Make it Monday
I love Promarkers - Anything Goes

Remember to hop over and see what the rest of the team have created.

Creative Craft - It's only Words

Hey Guys

Been a bit quiet on here, had a big clearout and decorated my bedroom over the October week and then had vomiting kids and a busy week including a visit to SECC Craft Show.

Had less money than usual to spend but feel like I maybe got more 'cause I was being more canny. 
I got the staples - tape and card blanks then some dies and stamps but 
only a few bits of miscellaneous tat/embellishments and I normally get lots of stuff I hardly use.
Plus usually go a bit mad and get some sort of kit (beaded snowflakes, Home wall hanging etc)
and never ever make it. Resisted some strong temptation.
My New Years resolution is to make all these things.

Anyway I used a stamp from one of my purchases for my card for 
Creative Craft Challenges new theme - It's Only Words.
Make Words the focus of the card for a chance to win the prize from our sponsor 

The sweet sentiment is from a set by Lili of the Valley - Quotables - Celebrate

Die cut with a Nestie then inked with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink,
backed with an inked doillie over an embossed and inked background and a bit of ribbon from my stash and topped with a wooden heart I picked up last week.

Christmas for Men

Hi Peeps and New Followers

It's time for some mid challenge inspiration over at
It's only 64 days till Christmas.......ARGHH!!!

We are looking for Cards for Men

I've used Kenny K's - Mistletoe. you can't beat Kenny for Male cards
Although she's called Mistletoe she's holding a sprig of holly. 
I just couldn't bring myself to colour it as mistletoe when it's clearly holly
She's coloured with Promarkers.

She's been flocked which adds some lovely dimension and texture.
I computer generated the sentiment 
and matted it all on Kraft and paper with some ribbon from my stash.

Something spooky going on at Aud

It's time for a mid challenge reminder over at Aud Sentiments.

We want Funny Halloween Sentiments.

Our sponsor this time is the fabulous Bugaboo who kindly supplied the DT some awesome images.

Now Halloween isn't as big in Scotland as some places 
and while the kids have fancy dress parties etc we don't send Halloween cards. 
I thought they were too cute to be made into a card that will live in a box forever 
so I chose to make a wall hanging.

I'm very pleased with it.
Image was coloured with Promarkers and then blinged up with some Stickles and Black Glaze pen on the spiders, Glossy Accents on the potion and bubbles and Stardust Pen on the spiders web. 
Plus some Stickle dots in the sky.
Matted on black card and Halloween paper

I then downloaded a couple of spooky free fonts from Dafont.
Poultrygeist and Meltdown.
I couldn't think of something funny so did a play on peek-a-boo with Eek and Boo.

I drew the spiders web with a stardust pen and then coloured and cut out the words.
The Eek is Glossy Accented and the Boo got googly eyes.
All hung together with some fab bright ribbon from my stash.
The brads are plain black but needed something else so I drew bats and spiders with the Glaze pen and cut them out to go under the brads.

My Little Superhero

Hello Peeps

Bit of a mad week for me as it's the October Week next week and between my darling kids needing entertained and my plan to paint my bedroom I won't be able to craft.

This card was for my boys birthday. 
He's Superhero mad so this image from Simply Betty was perfect.

Christian Thor coloured with Promarkers.
I admit to being pleased with how he turned out.
I've cut him slightly out of the frame and matted on red.
I used a zigzag embossing folder inplace of DP as it is reminiscent of lightning.
It looks fab across the room if I do say so myself.

I'd like to enter him at

Any sentiment for a Child at Aud.

Hi again.

Hope you all have had a good weekend and week so far.
It was a holiday weekend here and the kids had a 5 day weekend.
We ended up staying in for most of it as the little lad had a stinky cold.
On the plus side we (Him) got shelves up in each of the kids rooms, 
the fact that one is in the wrong place is (and I quote) irrelevant - the shelf is up!
Deep breath and count to ten.

The downside is I have no idea what day of the week it is and nearly forgot to post this.

Aud Sentiments is looking for you to use Any Sentiment for a child.
We are sponsored by Beccy's Place and Imagine That.

I got the lovely Autumn from Imagine That.
She comes ready coloured or outline and with lots of sentiments.
This time I used the pre-coloured image which is great if you are in a hurry or not into colouring.
I was being a bit lazy as it was a holiday weekend.

I've teamed her with some Autumn paper and cut out extra leaves to embellish with.

I'd like to enter her at
