The Sugar Bowl Challenge 45 - Tiet's Sketch

Hello again

Another quick post with a card for the above challenge over at the sugar bowl. Don't know where my time goes these days!

The challenge was to use Tiet's Sketch to make your card. This is the sketch:

And this is the card I made for the challenge:

The stamp is a Gorjuss Girl 'Flower Girl'. A real Hippy-chick! I love those wee flowers in her hair! I think I will be giving this card to my sister for her birthday, coz the image reminds me of her when she was little.

I coloured her with my Promarkers and cut the little owl images from some pp to add a little bit of fun. The flowers are from my stash and have green brad centres.

I'd like to enter this card in the below challenge:

Back very soon with some more creations I hope, maybe one involving a snowball (going to see how it turns out first - oh and yes! a card one not the melting kind!)

What's comin' will come....

Hello again

Nothing for days - then two posts in the one!

Over at Bugaboo Stamps they have just released some HP inspired digistamps. They are great images for any magical themed cards you want to make. I am taking part in their 4 part (yes 4 part) blog hop!

The last part was to make a magical inspired item with one of the new digistamps. The card I have created below is with an image of The Gentle One (from Freebie Friday at Bugaboo Stamps). I love this image of a gentle giant!

Isn't he a great image? I love his doggy - it looks so cute hiding behind him.

The image is coloured with my Promarkers and the lamp and dog's nose have been glossy-accented. I wanted something for the light of the lamp and was struggling with it until I came across some little trasparent  mosaic tiles that I bought an age ago and never used. I think they look great and give the light some life about it (but I do admit I am biased).

The little owl is coloured with my Promarkers and I have added some googly eyes to cheer him up a bit!
The quote is one of the gentle giant's 'state the obvious' quotes that we love him for!

Well that's my card - and I'd like to enter it in the below challenge:

Catch The Bug Challenge - magic/fantasy-themed

Thanks once again for looking and any comments that you are so kind to leave.


Harley a Calendar!


Just a quick post to show you the calendar I made for my hubby. He's the proud owner of a Harley-Davidson motorbike (his pride and joy - picture of it in a previous post if you want a peek!).

Anyway, I thought I'd make him a calendar for his desk at work for next year, and what better to use than a bikey stamp!

The stamp is from Stamps Happen and is coloured with my Promarkers. The papers are from EK Success that I had left over from a Scrapbook that I made for Billy of our trip to Daytona Bike Week in 2006 (never throw anything out me - proper crafter!!!). The sentiment is from part of a set of digistamps from Totally Stampalicious, that I won on a wee blog challenge over on their blog!

I'm sure he'll like it, he's not getting it til New Year - or I may pop it in with his Christmas pressies.

Thanks for looking!

Keep It Simple - Thank You

Over at KIS this week they are looking for thank you cards, but like they say in their title - you have to Keep It Simple.

This is the card I have made for the challenge:

The card has been coloured with Tim Holtz Distressing Inks in Spiced Marmalade and Worn Lipstick. The triangle is made using post it notes and the same inks as before. The stamped image is by Penny Black and the sentiment is from a Marie Curie Cancer Care stamp set. The two little black bits of bling are from Kanban. That's it - very simple. I must admit I struggled not to add anything else - maybe just a wee swirly stamp, but I refrained!

Sugar Nellie's Sugar Bowl!

Hello again. Really enjoying my blog now that it's up and running properly!

This is a card I have made for my Nanna for her birthday, she will be 93 years young! She's not your typical old grannie, so hence the younger style card.

The stamp is a Sugar Nellie stamp - Sitting with Bear by Elisabeth Bell coloured with my Promarkers and the card shaded with chalks (it's sparkly although you can't see it in the picture).  The papers are from Wild Rose Studio (Milton & Co), card stock, flowers and brads from stash.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenge:

Thanks for looking and happy blogging!

A Happy Ever After...

I'm back!

I had a wee bit of spare time on my hands so thought I would make a couple of challenge cards today. On doing this I have discovered that I really really NEED craft storage space!!! Although even once I have it I probably still won't be able to find what I want in my stash.

After much hunting I came across all the bits for the below wedding card, it could also be used for an anniversary card as the sentiment is quite generic (big word for a Sunday). I think I will be giving it to my mum and dad who will be 44 years married this year.

The stamped image is by Lily of the Valley and the sentiment is by Elzybell. The papers are Papermania ones that I have had for years - hence why I couldn't find them :o) The flowers are from stash and the pearls from Kaiser Scrapbook. The flower centre is a brad which was part of a huge scrapbook set from Costco, which I got for very little pennies :oD - love a bargain me!

I'd like to enter this challenge in:

Thanks for looking and for any comments




Just a quicky post as I would like to enter the below card in Totally Stampalicious - Stampalicious Monday. I'm hoping it's not too late!!

The witch and caludron images and the Happy Halloween sentiments are by Totally Stampalicious and were a freebie on their blog for this challenge. The other images are stamps by Tanda Stamps. The paper is from stash. I stamped the web and the sentiment on acetate and attached it so that they look as though they are floating on the card.

Away to post it now for the challenge - back in a mo!!!
