A Flashback!

Hi girls, hope you're having a great day... Had another card planned for today, but somehow the bluetooth doesn't want to work today and couldn't transfer the photo from my mobile to the PC!!! Aaarggh !

So I finally gave up, but being the official day of my 1st Year Blogaversary, I just couldn't let today go by without posting anything and so I thought what better day than today to post a card for the Flashback Friday Challenge!

I came across this challenge only last week and immediately wanted to join in as well, seems so fun :) Anyway, the Flashback this week is on our First Glitter Card and here is mine, posted on Monday 10th May last year, you can see the post here.. I had forgotten all about this card!! and even the stamp.. woops :)


Now, as you might know I got candy on at the moment, to celebrate my 1st Year Blogaversary, but I'm keeping it open 'till the 24th of February, as I am celebrating my taking part in a Craft Exhibition as well. So I thought I would hold a mini surprise candy today for one of my regular followers who leave a comment today :)) How d'you like that :) ? So just leave a comment today, on this post, and I will pick the winner tomorrow.

As always, thanks for looking today. Have to go now, as taking son to football now, but I'll be back.

OSAAT - 47

Hello girls, hope you're having a great weekend....  nice sunny day here, started  out rather foggy but it's very nice now. I have my DT card today for this week's challenge at ONE STITCH AT A TIME... This week the theme is GOOD LUCK or a photo inspiration.

To make my card today I was given some lovely papers and a nice sentiment from Toucan Scraps. Not my usual style, really out of my comfort zone as I love to play with images and colouring with my promarkers, but once I got myself to start it out, I really got to enjoy myself and ended up loving the end result. 

A very simple layout, I used my Martha Stewart punches for the border and leaves, Nestabilities die and some distressing on the papers as well.  Some pearls, ribbon and flowers for the final touch.

We have another great sponsor this week, Make It Crafty, so I hope you can come to play with us this week for your chance to win.

Some challenges now for a little fun :)

A Baby Card

I'm sure you all know by now how much I love baby cards.... so when I saw Carissa's lovely baby card, using this adorable Chubby Angel stamp... I just had to have him as well he he :))

... and here is what I did.... a very simple card, my mojo seems to be in this mood at the moment!!! ... but I still loved how it turned out.. can't really go wrong with this adorable cute little teddy!
The lovely papers are Papermania, border punch is Martha Stewart, image coloured with my promarkers and the sentiment is a peel-off.... which was blue, but I coloured it black with my promarkers! Thought it would smudge away but no it didn't! Wow these promarkers are awesome, love them kiss kiss kiss he he :)

Here is a close up of my Chubby Angel... the glitter really show this way


and this is the sketch that I followed to create my card today.

Stamp Fairy Friday

Yay it's Friday, I love Fridays as it's the last day of the week and it's release time at Stamp Fairy! We have this adorable Clementine bunny today.... isn't she cute, just perfect for some Easter cards :)

The background Easter paper is from a Papermania Paper Pack and the green one was from a magazine freebie, either Cardmaking and Papercraft or Quick Cards, can't remember which one. Thought they really matched so well together.

A 100th Birthday!

Once in a while I get asked to do a card... and this time I was asked to make a card for someone's 100th birthday!!! Wow!

Well, she wanted the card to be very large, didn't want any images on the card and she just wanted the number 100 in the centre. This was really out of my comfort zone, a big challenge .... I don't like to do very large cards and I've never made a card without any stamps before, but anyway seeing how important it was for her, I tried and this is what I managed to do .... and SHE loved it ... ME ? well, Ok I think.. What do you think?


I printed the number 100 from a Word document on pink and white card and then cut them out with my scissors. The sentiment is also computer generated.

I thought my card was just perfect for this week's challenge at Charisma Cardz which is MAGIC NUMBERS, more magical than this can't really get :))

and I would like to enter my card in these challenges as well ....

A Christmas Card

My son yesterday came home from school with just one shoe! He said it flew off from his foot into an abandoned field when he kicked something...  and he couldn't find it. These kids... . I didn't know if to laugh or fume ... but it WAS funny!!!! Anyway, I decided we should go searching for it again and found it .. phew.. it was a pair of new shoes just bought.... Writing this now, I'm thinking again about my lost stamps... wonder if I'll ever find them....

I got my one a week Christmas Card today.... so far I'm managing it, yay :)))

For my card today I used this adorable and sweet Night Angel from Stitchy, which I coloured with my promarkers, some papers, flowers and ribbon from my stash and did lots of stitching again today.
Wish I finished my card before because it's dark now and photos do come out better in the daylight.

An Antique Card


Hi everyone, it's time for another challenge at Crafty Sentiments and the theme this week is ANTIQUE ... Not an easy one for me, in fact I only did another one of these cards before, but then, when I finish them, I always love the end result :)  So why I don't do these type of cards more often, I really don't know!!! 

For my card today I decided to use this sweet Teddy With Rose stamp which I coloured with my promarkers and one of the lovely new Valentine Sentiments from Crafty Sentiments


Instead of my usual stitching, today I tried some distressing around the edges of the paper and the stamp. The paper is from a Papermania pack, flower punch is Martha Stewart and for the scrolls I used my Tim Holtz On The Edge die.


I would like to enter my card in these challenges today.

Another Baby Card

Well, so I'm back, with a card now ... he he  :) I can't believe I managed to do a card today ..   I'm always busy busy during the week taxi driving my kids somewhere and we're going to the scouts as well now! Anyway, back to my card, it's really a very quick one, that is why I managed to do it, and I had already started it yesterday.

For my card today I'm using my new cute cute Oh Boy stamp, which I coloured with my promarkers, the border punch is Martha Stewart, and I cut the lovely oval beaded shape with my new Spellbinders Nestabilities. 
I didn't have the TAN embossing mats which you need to do the embossing, actually I didn't know I needed these woops :) ... but somehow I managed for now. Couldn't wait to get me some .... 

.... I LOVE these Nestabllities ..  and don't think they are my last ... he he :) 

I did faux stitching today for a quickie and the booties were in a pack of embellishment ready made.

Goodies in the Mail

This is what my postman delivered this weekend and which is why I've been a little away .....

So, there were the all so sweet sweet stuff that I won from Jacque last month and it was just perfect for me as there were some lovely gorgeous ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon, flowers :) yummy yummy truffles and also a lovely mini magnolia stamp. Thank you Jacque :))  Just a shout out that she regularly has sweet stuff on her blog so you might want to pop on over and check it out!!




And then there were the two clear stamps that I won from the December Gem of A Challenge and the two Spellbinders Nestablities that I bought from the shop as well... forgot to take the picture of another goody I bought... a pearl spray!

Something else that I received some time ago is this lovely 12x12in paper pad. A long time ago I had saw on someone's blog that you could sign up for the Colorbok Club and they would send you a free paper pack. I so signed up, thinking it was some spam, but hey it wasn't. It's really nice and there are sticker sheets, glitter ones and punch out ones as well. Definitely worth checking out.


All these goodies is reminding me that my first year blogaversary is coming up and I still haven't thought up of anything!!! Seems flowers are really popular  mmmmm... I'll think up of something real soon so keep a lookout :)  but now I'll be back with a card I made using my lovely new baby Cutie stamp :)

So for this card I used one of the new cute releases at Crafty Sentiments, Lily with Flowers. I coloured her with my promarkers and used two of my Martha Stewart punches. Hope you like it :)

This is the sketch that I followed.

Hello everyone, how are you doing? Hope you are having a great weekend. It's time for our 45th Challenge at ONE STITCH AT A TIME and the theme this week is NEW BEGINNINGS! 

I got to play with one of the gorgeous stamps from Kelly's Kids this week and chose this sweet pixie. I thought she would be fantastic for a New Year card.... came out more Christmassy then I wished for, but I'm still so pleased with it as it came out so colourful, and anyway, I still haven't done my one a week Christmas Card :)

I had so much fun colouring my image with my promarkers and trying to get it look like she is sitting IN the cup, and this is my second attemp!!! Lots of glitter today and some gold/bronze coloured mesh which I've had in my stash for so long, but I think it was perfect here. I'm so pleased I used it. The lovely papers are digi ones from Crafty Sentiments. Hope you like it and come playing along with us. This week we are sponsored by the fabulous Joanna Sheen who is kindly giving a GBP10 to the winner.

Good News and a Card

Hello hello hellooooo :)) I have another post today ... a longish one too as I got lots and lots of news ...

So first  - my friend had her baby yesterday, and it's a little cutie boy :)) Woo hoo can't wait to see. ..

Second news .. there is another baby on the way, actually two, the wife of one of my colleagues and another colleague of mine, who told us yesterday that she is three months pregnant with her first baby :) I'm so happy for her!!! Must get me a card done ..

Third news... and hear this one now .. I'm SO EXCITED.. no no I'm not pregnant ha ha :)) hoo hoo :))

feel my excitement...

well ..

a craft exhibition is going to be organised at the Bank where I work for its employees and obviously I applied.. that was quite a few months ago... well, guess what ... I'VE BEEN CHOSEN !!! Woo hoo hoo :))  I'm soooo excited! There will also be a catalogue, with our photo, write-up and one of our projects! I'm so glad I kept most of the cards I was doing last year.. just in case I was chosen, 'cos, knowing me, I'm sure I wouldn't have managed to make anything in time. It will be held next month .. really can't wait!!!

And more more good news .. told you it's a long one..

I WON A CHALLENGE   :))   yippeee!!!

Yes, the December Gem of a Challenge with my Liittle Red Robin card. I get two clear stamps of my choice from the store :)) .... And browsing the store I just couldn't help myself ordering two sets of Nestibilites as well.... didn't have any of these and had been dying to get me one as they look lovely. So now I'm really looking forward for the postman to come knocking at my door ha ha :)

Wow all this good news made me forget the bad cold I still have..  :) I think it's better I go in the afternoon for my daily walk not early morning.. !!!

O yes, I have a card as well now. A baby card for my friend of course. Really love how it turned out.

For this card I used one of my Pink Cat Studio stamps which I'm using for the first time, some yellow flowers and of course one of my Martha Stewart punches. There's stitching all around ... I've grown to love stitching so much and feel there's something missing when I don't do this! I did the sentiment with the computer as the one in the set didn't fit in my card.

Stamp Fairy Friday

Hello everyone, are you ready for another new release from Stamp Fairy

The sentiment is computer generated with some free fonts I had found on the internet and I did the embossing with one of my Cuttlebug embossing folders. Quite a simple card for me today, but I really loved how it turned out. 

Here are the other mermaids in the set ..
