OOOOh, Am excited.

Hello bloggers. I have actually made a card that I am really pleased with, this doesn't happen to me often, always very critical.

Have made an acetate jacket and stamped with a swirl stamp from Butterfly Kisses in stazon, trimmed a silver card and attached the jacket with pearl brads. Stamped a mask again from Butterfly Kisses in metalic lilac, added a feather and sentiment and voila.

Have to admit ruined one, stamped and glittered on acetate and attached it to my piece of work with silicone as I wanted to bend it, but the silicone has bled through the glitter, doh! Well if you don't suceed, try, try again, but not tonight.

Me to You



Now I know Sam has received it, I will post it on my blog. I decided to alter as CD as I had never done this before. I coloured the CD with alcohol inks, cut some scalloped circles with nestabilities, stamped and coloured a Sarah Kay image and added some friends stamped words, finished off with some ribbon and hay presto a door hanger.

Another Week Gone

Where did it go?

Well had a fabby day yesterday, went with OH and DD to Wales White Water Rafting, certainly wasn't looking forward to putting on that wet suit! Ummm was terrified of falling in the water and racing off down the river, OH has done it before and tried to reasure me that I wouldn't fall in, DD couldn't wait to get started. Buuut abosolutely loved it and certainly want to go again, we have some pics of other rafts.

First Christmas Card & My Time to Craft Challenge

Well, as much as I think it's way too early to be thinking about the festive season, I though I had better make a start. I think the penguin stamp is Crafters Companion, the sentiment stamp is from Butterfly Kisses and the papers are from Funky Hand, coloured the image with Sakura glaze pens. I think it fits in with the challenge at http://mytimetocraftchallenge.blogspot.com/ for this week too.


OOOOOh, something to get me back into blogging, have been a bad blogger and crafter over the last few weeks, but will try to improve.

My lurrrrvvvvverlleee sistah Gayle from SBS14 has given me an award, she also has a fab blog at http://littlebirddesign.blogspot.com/.

I now have the difficulty of picking 5 peeps to send the award to. No problem with my first choice, my furry friend who has just set up her own blog Anne aka Little Lion. Another of my favourite Scots Ann R, another SBS14 sistah Tonya, ummmmm Minxy and Andrea, had to type that quickly before I changed my mind, oooooh, soooo difficult. Would link your names to your blogs but, doh! don't know how to do it!
