Dawn has Blog Candy

My great pal Dawn has blog candy to give away to celebrate her 20 000th hit - amazing isn't it. :) :) Pop over and say Hi to her and check out her blog - she is one talented crafter and such a lovely person too. :) :)
To enter into her candy draw - you have to take a piccy of you in your craft room and if you have a furry friend then try and include it too...I think this is a fab, fun idea and very wiling to play along. :)

Here I am with my Molly kitty sitting in the craft side of my room. :) :)

Sketch Saturday

I am on a roll today...yet another card and am waiting for some ATC's to dry aswell. :) :)

I have used my Downloadable Elephant and Mouse image from my Birthday Fun Set available from Crafty Templates - HERE I really love this image and of course it is so easy to resize to you own needs - large or small, cards, ATC, Scrapbooking etc. ;) :)

I have used Kay & Co papers, bit of bling and pretty flowers. :)

Tag your it challenge and BG challenge

I have made a tag for Tag it Challenge - you had to use pink, green and brown. :) For the BG Challenge you had to use stitching real or faux. :) So I made the tag to the requirements and added the tag to BG card - so two in one really. :) :)

The photo of the tag is not brilliant - because I used a rub-on.


Now here is the BG challenge card with the tag on..:) :) I have used BG papers from the Sultry Range. :)


Thanks for looking..:) :)

This Penguin one - just love this template..:) I just added gooogly eyes and a wee bit of fiber around his tummy. The stamp is custom made by the lovely Leo herself - isn't it fabulous and you can't buy this one in the shops, it is a great size too. :)

Here is my third card....Gingerbread house and again the template is so easy to use and build up the layers. :)




And for my last card...I decided I like the penguin sooo much I just had to use it again..but this time I used the template twice and also combined them with the cute flags to make this card...

Spiral Whisper Sketch Challenge

is ready now for all the Spiral fans. You can find the sketch on their blog

I have made two cards for this sketch. :) My mojo certainly is taking a downturn these days - is it the weather??,lol, lol.

Here is the first one - I have used two of my border stamps from my Flower Borders set of stamps, if you fancy a peek you will find them here. :) I used a white Sakura pen for colouring the horizontal border and glitter gel pens for the frame. The frame is acutally a line of flowers but as you can see they are versatile enough to make into a frame. ;) It is a simple but effective card I think. :)



Here is the second one - I have used my trusty Seemore for this card, lol - I just love him. :) No backing paper to speak of really - I used the swirl CB embossing folder, a wee strip of backing paper with nice red ribbon over. Used Coloursoft pencils and gel pens to colour. Oooh yes, early forgot, lol I used another one of my borders to frame Seemore - this border is from my Swirl Border set of stamps. :) Here



Thanks for looking and please join in on the fun with Spiral Whisper. :) :)
