A little birdie told me at Sweet Stampin'


Hope those of you that celebrate it had a great Crimbo.
We have a couple of very spoiled kids.

Anyway it's time for the last challenge of the year over at Sweet Stampin'

A Little Bird Told Me

Sponsored by Crafty Ribbons 
plus the chance of our monthly sponsor prize from The Ribbon Girl

She's gorgeous and took a power of colouring with my Promarkers.
Some liquid pearls were added too
Then I die cut her out of the frame.

She's mounted on Kraft card and the papers are

I ruffled some seam binding ribbon to echo her braid.
A simple sentiment stamp and some card candy to finish.
I'm loving her lots.

I'd like to enter her at

Thanks for stopping by

Last Minute Christmas at Sweet Stampin'

Hi guys

It's time for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin' and our theme is Last Minute Christmas.
Our sponsor is Cuddly Buddly.

I take this to mean a card you can knock up in minutes when you realise you have forgot someone.

I have used a gorgeous Inkylicious stamp

Just stamp it in any colour, I've used Olive Green, and you have a beautiful card.
I added some glittery "snowballs" and matted it on Kraft.

Don't forget to go see what the rest of the Team have created to inspire you

Play Tag with Aud

Hi guys

It's time for a new challenge over at Aud Sentiments.
We'd like to see your Tags but don't forget that you must include a sentiment.
Plus we have a DT  call if you are intrested

This weeks sponsor is the Stamp Fairy who kindly supplied the Team with images.
I have used Santas Little Helper Candy Cane 1
Isn't he cute?

I've coloured him with Promarkers, highlighted areas with gold glitter pen and fussy cut him.

I've mounted him on a circle of kraft card edged with the glitter pen.
 Then matted on a scalloped circle of red card.
I added a die cut tag with the stamped sentiment and some bakers twine.

Creative Craft Challenge WOW Christmas

Ho Ho Ho
It's nearly Christmas and I've yet to finish my cards, or shopping for that matter!

Over at Creative Craft Challenges we want your WOW Christmas creations.

WOW cards are hard to photograph at the best of times but when you live in the land of eternal darkness (bit of an exaggeration but not by much) it's nearly impossible!
I need to learn how to change settings on the camera and manipulate the images.

I went CAS with this one, mostly 'cos I don't have any festive embossing folders!

I die cut the tree and glittered it.
Then placed it in an oval apature.
A strip of glittered double sided tape.
Craftwork cards sentiment.

Christmas at Sweet Stampin' is WOW

Hi Peeps

Sorry I've been scarce but as the old saying goes Shit Happens.
Rather a lot of it recently but hopefully normal service has resumed.

I'm very late but over at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' we are looking for Wow cards.
That's White on White for those that don't know.

Here is my creation (be warned Wow cards are hard to photograph!)

I just stamped a sentiment which is a magazine freebie then made a wreath of snowflakes 
embellished with pearls.

 Then I added a bow with a round sparkle on it.
(does anyone know what the sparkly things are called?)

Think I may do more of these in varying shapes and colours.
