Time for some sad news and good news

The sad news is that the Tilda & co/ Sarah Kay challenges are no more, unfortunately there has had to be some changes, Donna has needed to merge the two blogs together to free some time up for herself , the good news is that there is a brand new challenge blog which is called Magnolia vs Stampavie. You can check it out here.

A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge # Sparkle and Bling

This is my card for A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge. I used the Sketch from the Papertake Weekly Challenge and some pearlescent card and loads of bling. Unfortunately the glue was a bit messy so I sprinkled with glitter in the hope that, (as long as you dont get too close, only look at it from a certain angle and screw your eyes up when looking at it) will just look like an extra bit of glitz. Nevermind its one I can keep as a reminder not to use this glue again to stick gems.

Our Creative Corner Challenge ~ Handmade for the Holidays

Here's my entry for the Our Creative Corner Challenge ~ Make a Gift. Its quite basic, just a pyramid box made from plain card with 4 penny black images stamped, coloured and cut out. Edged with gold peel-offs and tied with red and gold ribbon. But more importantly filled with mini chocolate mallow cakes. Yummy!! Think this might be a little pressie to myself.

A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #21 Lim's Sketch

Here's my entry for the spoon full of sugar challenge. I have used a Whiff of Joy image that has been stamped and watercoloured. The papers are from Cosmo Cricket, along with the homemade corners and paper buttons.

My 1st Whiff of Joy Challenge

I had a play last night stamping and colouring my new Whiff of Joy stamps, so thought I might have a go at the challenge. This weeks challenge was Autumn, so I used some autumn coloured papers by K & Co, I think and Anna Griffin ribbon, along with various flowers layered up. This gorgeous image is Willow with Hot Chocolate and she is sitting on her armchair with the help of 3d foampads. I used a thick brown gloss to highlight the wood of the chair.
The water-colouring isn't brilliant, but not bad for a first attempt, and sorry the photo is a bit dark.

New Stamps ~ Yippee !!!

I have been ill in bed all week, but still managed to order my first Whiff of Joy Stamps. This morning they arrived and are gorgeous, these must be the best medicine ever. I have tried to get all the housework and shopping done today and now I am off to play.

Two in One Challenges ~ Penny Black & Saturday Sketch

Penny Black Saturday Challenge- Thanks a Bunch
For my card I stamped Bashful Badger using Archival Ink (black) and painted the image with Twinkling H2O's. Flora doodles and Prima flowers with gem centers as embellishments and 2 widths of red ribbon. I know that I've used Christmas colours and its not a Christmas image or theme, but I wanted to try out my new colours of H2O's. I've used the sketch from the Saturday Sketch Challenge #20 so covered 2 challenges in one.

Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge #2

A Full Weekend of Crafting - Wonderful :-)
I haven't been able to sit at my craft table all last week, I've been so busy. Meetings and late nights at work, getting son packed and ready for a weekend away with school. So treated myself this weekend to none stop crafting. Went to North West Stampers craft fair at Port Sunlight yesterday and bought far to much as usual. Then spent all day today playing with my new stuff. Heaven!

Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge #2
Here's my card based on the sketch:

I had to make an over sized square card as the base as I wanted to use this embossed Christmas tree. I layered up pearlescent paper, some holly vellum and lilac ribbon.My sentiment was stamped with purple staz-on and drawn over with clear gelly roll pen. I thought I'd try out this technique of applying ink onto my CB embossing folders, then going over image with irridecent glitter glue and am quite pleased with the result.

Papertake Weekly Challenge

Here's my card based on this weeks sketch. Not sure of the make of paper it was a freebie from a mag. I'm not over keen really, it's quite busy, but I have set myself a challenge to use up all the papers I have gotten free. The image as usual was stamped using Staz on and watercoloured, with a touch of white souffle pen on the bubbles.

Cute Card Thursday Challenge #30

Here's my entry for this weeks Cute Card Thursday Challenge - Christmas Animals. I based it on the sketch for this weeks A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #19. I used a Basic Grey paper, stamped and watercoloured my image, then added a little glitter glue. A punched border top and bottom and finished with a couple of punched snowflakes and an embossed snowflake from my embellishment box. Two challenges in one.
