A card before the off and the Show me Sunday Winner

I scanned the card and it has bleached the white card base out so much you cant even see it! But it is mounted onto a white base.  This adorable Penny Black stamp was made using the FREE SET that I chose for being a Penny Black winner on their blog.  Thought it was about time for sharing and inking.

We're off to butlins today for 4 nights.  The kids are going to love it.  Everything is packed (I think).

The winner of last weeks SHOW ME SUNDAY is  HAZEL from Dido's Designs!  Hazel email me your postal details and I will send you your stamp.

Show me Sunday this week will have to wait as I didnt have time yesterday to sort a prize out.

Speak later

Show me?

Obviously no one wants to win a brand new stamp as only 2 entries to Show me Sunday this week!  I cant believe from the hundreds of hits just 2 people want to share a creation with me?!?!

Please check out Show Me Sunday on last Sundays post...ALSO the winner from the first week hasnt contacted me so if I dont hear by this Sunday 9am BST I will draw another name.


Black and Yellow, Black and Yellow... Opps I mean White!

Loving the Black and Yellow song, so couldn't help singing that whilst making my black and white card.  That was this weeks challenge on the Woodware Blog.

I don't mind admitting it was a struggle for me as you know how much I love BRIGHT colours but I just about managed. :)

The stamp I used for the main image is a Magenta Stamp .  I do for some reason have soft spot for little birdie images.

The flowers in the background and Hello are a Jane Gill stamp set from Woodware, as are the flowers, ribbon, glitter glue ect ect all woodware apart from the Nestie.

Simple Frames

I painted and stamped these frames the other day to go with the girly sets I made.  These were special little birthday gifts for 4 little girls.

Very delicate stamping on these you can hardly see it.

Harvey was invested into cub scouts last night.  Very proud.  This was him after the investment with his new green woggle and cub jumper.

I've made quiet a few cards lately in my shed at night but as its so late the photos are coming out really bad. My cards in the local shop have been selling well so I am really pleased about that.  Just need to keep on making them.

Lots of hits.... not much interaction

1400 views the past week and only a tiny handful of comments or likes/dislikes.  I really would LOVE to get my blog more interactive with you joining in.

Please link to your blog on card you have made recently that you think I would like to see.  I want to see who is viewing and find out more about my readers cards :)

This will be closed next Sunday at 9am....  I will call this "Show me Sunday" and I may well add this often if I find it goes well :) x

Few shares

Lots of Harvey's friends love football, indeed lots of little boys and girls do too.  I have made 2 boys football buntings recently, one was a sample for a shop one a present for a friends little boy, well big boy as he is 8 now!  Unfortunately Mingming's trips to the vets cost us a LOT of money, money we don't have spare taken away from our daily living money and also Caiden's birthday too :(   So I have had to get frugal with making a present, but I am hoping that he will be pleased to get something football related and something with his name on as I am sure Brennan is not one you would find in the shops!

Hop on over to my Say it in Bunting blog to see more pictures and pricing.  Any name, any colours, any theme.

Night Night MingMing

My poor bunny Mingming was too poorly and I felt the kindest thing was to take her back to the vets.  She was very stressed out with her constant baths and cream application and she hadn't eaten for a couple of days and had lost weight. Such a lovely bunny... xxx

A few makes

Here are some cards I have been making lately.  I am selling a few at a local store and these are ones made so far!  I have run out of time and also been having a bit of a hard time with my poorly rabbit who we are trying to save from Fly Strike :(  we are having to bathe and cream her twice a day and its really upsetting :(

Woodware Challenge 3 - Its a sketch!

Its a sketch challenge this week and that leaves it wide open for choosing what we can use, I do have lots of Woodware and Stampendous so its hard to choose.

So above is the sketch, quiet a simple one to play with :)  As I said the hardest thing is choosing what to use.

And here is what I made. A fun bright birthday card for an 8 year old girl.  Of course colours and numbers can all be changed to make it something entirely different.

I used : 



 and the peach circle punch to make my own domed circles to add on. Of course lashings of glitter too but that hasn't shown up on here.  

Remember to visit the Woodware Blog tomorrow for another card from another one of the DT.

Special card for a special person

I made this card for my Mum who's birthday it was yesterday.
I made the same sort of card that my friend Suzie Q made me for my birthday last month.

Went to Ikea yesterday and got a new table and some metal drawers and had another change about in 
my crafty palace.

So now I have an L shape to work on and a bit more room :)

Kids Create and Take at Crafts U Love

Yesterday was kids Create and Take and we were getting the kids ready early for Fathers Day which is 19th June.  A simple little card but enough work for the kids.  Colouring in the Wild Rose Trophy Guy and using the mini rosette dies from Sizzix to make the "Dad" Rosette.  Mounted onto a Kraft coloured card.

We'll be running the kids Create and Take all through the summer holidays.  No need to book however if you are bringing a group let us know so we can prepare enough packs.  There will be a different project every week.
