Sunday Stampers - Hearts & Funky Fairys - Paper Piecing

Well, I was supposed to be making cards for my nephew's birthday, but can't seem to get the old noodle working for 7 year old cards so got side tracked and have done the SS challenge. This was made quite easy as I have some new super di duper stamps designed by the one and only Sunday Stamper Hels herself. I used two the the new stamps, a stamp from Woodware and papers from a Funky Hand CD. Hope you likey. This also qualifies for the Funky Fairys challenge this week which is paper piecing, and I have used quite a few pieces!

First 12x12 Scrapbook Pages.

Good evening to all, just making Lasagne and thought I would blog my first 12x12 pages. Have used DCWV Once Upon a Time crafty stash and am using it to do a book of my daughter. Have used a page of my own design and a layout from Scrummy Stash Cafe. Have really enjoyed myself and was reluctant to pack away but the troops were getting hungry. Yes, I'm as bad with the camera as I am with the scanner, ha, ha.

Arty Girlz Challenge

Am on a roll, not sure about this card though, loved the stamp when I bought it but have found it difficult to use. Have also managed another challenge from the Arty Girlz which is "Hint of Pink", not sure if I went a little OTT on the pink!

Papertake and Blog Candy challenge

OOOOh, two birds with one stone and I notice my fellow candy winner Steph has used her yummy winnings for this challenge too. Huge thanks to Gayle for the candy and the challenge. This is "Part 2" of the challenge where we have to make something only using the candy, the only thing we can add is plain card stock. As I have said it also falls in nicely with this weeks Papertake challenge which is "Feellin, Hot, Hot, Hot". Am hoping to fit in more play time with my candy and come up with more for the challenge.
Umm, can't be my scanning, must be the scanner!
The tile reads Happy Birthday.

Sunday Stampers.

Good evening to all, have found it very difficult these last two weeks to fit in any crafting, blogging or surfing. Spent yesterday at the seaside and paid for it today by having tons of washing, ironing and cleaning to do, and found myself very irritable this afternoon, so abandoned the housework and crafted for a couple of hours.

I am pleased to say I have managed the Sunday Stampers challenge which was black and white, after a couple of disasterous attempts here's my effort. I have used a vine stamp from Lavinia stamps and my faithfull Penny Black butterfly and am quite pleased with it in the end. Was an hour of, if you don't succeed, try, try again.
