Anything Goes at The Crazy Challenge

It's another Challenge over at The Crazy Challenge this week, and the theme is 'Anything Goes'

This is a card that I made for Christmas! Well it is just 21 DAYS until Christmas!! Yes - you did read that right - aarrgghhh. Although I have done quite a bit of shopping, just have mainly awkward men folk to buy for now :o/

Anyway - back to my card :oD

Sorry about the crap photo. Had to take pics in a hurray, coz I was selling them for charity, so didn't have time to faf about getting it just right! I did sell him, to Ross' nursery teacher who was wanting cards for her grandkids (sold another Santa one to her too). We raised some money for a charity in Malawi - over £400 in all - not bad for a wee nursery class ey!

A Couple of New Blogs

Morning from a very windy West Coast of Scotland. Thought I was going to wake up to carnage, listening to the wind last night, but outside looks as if it is still in one piece, so that can only be a good thing. Sun is now trying its best to spirit away all this wild weather - bless it LOL.

There are a couple of new blogs on the go that I have been asked to DT for. The first is ATCs with Attitude. I have a vast collection of these little treasures and they are fun to make as well as a good way of getting rid of all your scrap card making bits n bobs. Pop on over to ATCs with Attitude to find out more.

The next is Fat Pages with Attitude. Fat pages are 4"x 4" creations of art, that you can either use to create a little album of art or I have been know to use a couple as card toppers from time to time. Pop over here for more info on this blog and to have a go. This is my Fat Page for the first challenge, using a Kenny K digi:

There are some great sponsors over on these blogs including Kenny K, MelJens, Dezina World, Delicious Doodles and Stitchy Bear, so come on. If you've never tried these crafts before here's your chance and you could win a lovely prize just for trying out a new craft.

I'll be back later with a couple of things that I'm off to finish just now.

See ya later

The Crazy Challenge #87 - Think Pink (Breast Cancer Awareness)

 Afternoon bloggers

Scotland has been dreich over the past few days, makes me wish I lived a bit further south.

Well what can Iexpect with winter just around the corner :)

Over at The Crazy Challenge this week we are Thinking Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are sponsored by Limited Runs Digital Stamps who have some great digis for all kinds of occassions (I have been over browsing the Halloween section - mmmm - spoookkyyyy) and they are offering 3 digis of choice to the winner. So - here's my card for the challenge and for the party over at Link Up For Pink thanks for the info Celeste:

You can buy the ribboned cupcake over at Limited Runs and the Hope ribbon on the bottom of my card is a wee freebie at the moment. I made the card using my nestie and positioned it on a fold so that when cut it formed a card. Think I need a bigger die-cutting machine now so I can use bigger nesties for making cards (well Christmas is just around the corner).

Wee close up pics of the card:

Images: Limited Runs
Card: Cut with Lacey Circles Nestie
Papers: Tea House by Dovecraft

A Little Mermaid

Morning from a very wet and windy Scotland.

My thoughts go out to England and Wales today and hope that all these riots stop soon. Stay safe guys!

The below card I made for The Crazy Challege, but due to internet connection being down on holiday I didn't get it posted, but it's just too cute not to post:

The images are from Digital Delights by Loubi Lou. She has some great wee designs on there. I hand cut the 'seaweed' from some sparkly paper that I found in my stash.

I had to GD all of her scales to make her look all sparkly and underwatery, and used the same paper, but in a different colour as backing paper.

Aren't the little octopus and seahorse just sooo cute. The sentiment is also from Digital Delights, but I added some splashes and GA'd them for a bit of interest.

Medium: Promarkers
Papers: From Stash
Embellishments: Sticky coloured dots (for bubbles), glamour dust, glossy accent.

The Crazy Challenge

Hello Crafters!

I've been off-the-grid for a week or so as I was away on holiday and would have to have fought a teenager for the laptop, and he's getting sooo big these days that I think he would have easily won!

Over at The Crazy Challenge this week we are being sponsored by Digi Doodles and you can win $10 to spend in their store.

The challenge is to use Embossing on your project, and this is what I made:

I made the card for my mum to send to Canada, as her cousin's daughter is getting married (I think the wedding was last week to be honest). She was going to pay me for it,but as she childminds for me free-of-charge I could hardly be taking money for a card now could I.

The image is from Digi Doodles 'Jr. Bride and Groom'. Aren't they so sweet. I used my Nestie to Emboss round the cut-out.

I also used my 'Dots' Cuttlebug folder to emboss some maroon CS and sanded the dots to make them stand out, before adding the foiled sentiments to the card.

So - come on over to The Crazy Challenge and have a go!! You can also add GDT after your name for a chance to be a guest designer!

A wee girl is 1 !!

It's a bit of a dreich day here in Scotland, the sun was glorious the past few days, what happened to it :o(

I'm went to see the last instalment of Harry Potter last night, in 3D, and it was fabby, although I have to admit you still can't beat the books!

I'm also off to a 1st birthday party today, so hoping the sun will be out as Kiera (birthday girl) got a bouncy castle for her birthday from her mummy and I think my Ross will be looking for a wee shot :o) (I'd quite like a shot, but apparently I'm a bit old - dunno what they mean!!!), and a 25th Wedding Anniversary tonight (card to follow) I won't have anything else on for about 3 months now!!

This is the card I made for Kiera (no flowers on it as I didn't want her trying to eat them or anything LOL):
See - plain and simple!
Was worried about colouring Teddy Bea, but dunno why - it was a joy to colour!
And my little Foiled sentiment.

Hope the weather clears up so we can have a nice 1st birthday party in the garden!
