Tag your it!

Hi again

Still snotty here :-(

It's time for team Fi over at Sweet Stampin'  and our theme is Tags.

Our sponsor in Stamp Fairy who supplied this image

I've made a large tag

Paper is from my stash
The owls are flocked, fluffed, layered and Glossy Accented then
placed on an embossed oval.

I used some of the kids funky foam letters covered with glitter.
Then edged the bottom with some pompom trim

Finally some white ribbons and a crystal brad to top it off.

I'd like to enter it at

Remember to go see the rest of the Teams fab creations
Good luck

Let's get girly at Aud

Hi Guys 
(Sniff, cough and snotter!)

I'm full of the cold and my head is bursting, so just a quick one. (I'll edit in details later)

Mid challenge inspiration for the Femine challenge on Aud Sentiments

EDIT - I'm back with those details.
The image was from our sponsor Sassy Studios - Professor S Sassy
Coloured with Promarkers and sentiment is computer generated.
Layered on red and grey cardstock.

I'd like to enter her at

Creative Craft Challenge - Recipe

Hi Folks

My children are tag teaming me at the moment.
I just got one back to school today after a week off and the other one got sent home at lunchtime!
To top it all off I seem to be coming down with it too.

It's time for a new challenge over at Creative Craft Challenges.
This time we have a Recipe for you

1 image
2 papers
3 flowers

I've used one of our fab sponsor Robyn's Fetish images

I coloured this one with Coloured pencils for a more rustic feel then 
I cut out and layered up the image for some dimension.
I had planned to do faux stitching with white gel pen but my pen had died.
That's one for the shopping list.
I used 2 papers from a Hot of the Press magazine freebie pad.

The flowers are from the same freebie with pearls added.

I'd like to enter it at

Make it Monday

Christmas is coming at Sweet Stampin'

Hi Peeps
I haven't forgot about you.
We've had a poorly girl all week. 
Hate being stuck in, I only got out to get some kit for the boy going to camp.
She's now on the mend and he's away, hopefully having a ball.
Fingers crossed normal service can resume.

Just popping on to let you know that Sweet Stampin' has a new theme.
So hop over and get working on your Crimbo Cards

Get in shape with Sweet Stampin'

Erm Hello. 

Sorry I'm late. (hangs head in shame)
Was out celebrating my cousins 50th on Friday night when I realised 
I hadn't posted my pic for Sweet Stampin' or written the post. 
Bad enough but I then completely forgot about it yesterday too!
Senility maybe!

We want Shaped cards this week - no boring squares or rectangles.
You can win a great prize from The Hobby House 
plus be entered for the monthly prize from The Ribbon Girl.

So better late than never here is my shaped card

I used a cute Pollycraft image and sentiment - You're Udderly Amazing.
(I'm afraid she's shut up shop now so no link)
Coloured with Promarkers then fussy cut.
I stickled the balloon and it's dried patchy so I think I need to re-do it.

My card is cut from craft using Nesties Labels #1 so it's tiny.
(Wonder if Santa's listening!)
Paper is from My Minds Eye - Gnome Sweet Gnome pad
That's it - simples!
