One Stitch At A Time

Hi girls, Happy Sunday and Happy Halloween too, hope you are having a lovely weekend. I don't have a Halloween card today but I will be posting some photos later on of the Halloween Party I went to last night! Wow that was fun! I woke up this morning with really sore feet from all the dancing he he ...I sure am getting old.....

For now I have my DT Card for One Stitch At A Time and the theme this week is .... Christmas!  Hey .. I do hope you have started your Christmas Cards.. it's only 8 weeks left to go. I've been doing just these lately, I really don't want to rush things in the last minute!

So here is what I did today with this cute digi mouse stamp from Robyn's Fetish, which I was given to work with this week. I coloured him with my promarkers and then I also added some glitter on the blue stripes of the JOY Sock.

As always there are fantastic DT cards for inspiration and fantastic sponsors as well.. You really have to go and check them out. There are three sponsors this week... EasyCraft and Michelle's Scrapbooking and More, who are both giving away a £10 voucher to spend in their stores and also I Am Roses, who is giving away a gorgeous bunch of flowers.

A Snowman

I took a day off today.. totally unplanned... I was heading off to work this morning... in a traffic jam, as usual, and then decided to just turn around and head back home... wooops !!! Husband was ever so unpleased with me :||| Anyways.. you must have guessed where I went when I was home... he he :)) In my craft room of course.

The first card I did is heading off somewhere abroad...  won't be showing it off for now, because I don't want the person receiving it seeing it.... just in case she pops by here, you know ;))

and so this is the second one I did...  wooo heeee ...... this is life :)) I think he's the cutest snowman ever ... I love snowmen for Christmas Cards, and this is not the last one I'm showing off this week. This one is from The Stamping Boutique and I coloured him with my promarkers.  The paper were some remaining wrapping paper from last year!!! Unfortunately I love keeping scraps, well at least I found a use to this one now.
I did some snow again and added lots of sparkle with glitter and also with my glitter gel pen. There's lots of it on the red stripes of his scarf, hat and shoes... must click picture though to see it. The sentiment I wrote it myself with my Letraset fineliner.
For my card today I followed this sketch.

The papers which I used are freebie ones from the magazine Let's Make Cards and the sentiment stamp is also a freebie from this month's Quick Cards Magazine. The snowflake punch is from Docrafts and its the one I bought when I was with Sandra this week. I again did some distressing on my card, around the main image only this time and on the snow as well, and added also lots of glitter..... I told you I liked it :))

Sandra

Hi girls, I hope you are having a lovely week. My week ended very nicely as I finally managed to take a day off from work and had Sandra and her kids over at my place. I was sooo looking forward to this day.. 
We had so much fun talking and playing in my craft room... (all tidied up now) ....

... afterwards we also went shopping as she liked a punch I had and so I took her to get it and then we also went to get us some flowers.
I don't have any friends here who share my interest in card-making, so you can imagine what a great day I  had !!! She'll be back to Australia next Saturday.. I wonder if we'll meet again one day!!! Who knows..
