7 Day Stamp Giveaway....:)

Over at The Crafty Pad I am having a 7 Day Stamp Giveaway starting soon. :) Pop over to The Crafty Pad to check out all the details. :) Enjoy. :)


Two quick cards using a sketch

from a new forum just started up called Quirky Crafts. :)

I have used June doing The Race for Life stamp with the text
and made a good luck card with her. :)

I am dedicating this card to all the wonderful people out there who have or is taking part in

The Race For Life - such a great charity. :)

The second card is also using my June stamp - but this time without the text stamp. I have made a birthday card for a teenager. :)

Thanks for looking and don't forget that for every June Doing The Race For Life stamp I sell - I shall be donating £1.00 to the Cancer Research Charity. :) :)

Nice sketch over at The Crafty Pad..and Previews

The Crafty Pad

Before I show you my take on The Crafty Pad challenge here are the PREVIEWS of New Releases over at The Crafty Pad:-

They are available for pre-order now. :)

I would like to introduce you all to

Here are the previews of them:-

Any entries NOT USING a Crafty Pad stamp will have their name entered into the draw ONCE. :)

The winner will get to choose a single stamp from The Crafty Pad. :) :)

June Doing the Race for Life stamp is exempt from the prize.

Here is the sketch:-

And here is what I have made:-

I have made this new shopping bag from an old skirt..:) :) Wonderful what you can do from old

I just cut the sections - 2 squares, 3 rectangles and two thin long sections for the handles then used fabric glue to glue it altogether. :)
I stamped Belinda shopping on to a small section of the material and coloured her - this is now a wee pocket on the front of the bag. :)
The stitched flowers were already on the skirt so I painted some in and added a bit of glitter - thought they made a nice background for Belinda. :)
I added sections of ribbons to the bag to follow the sketch. :)
I used 4 large brads to hold the handles in place. :) :)

Now I have one brand new shopping bag. :)

I am also entering this into the C.R.A.F.T. challenge too and it is their first challenge this week - this is what they wrote:-

Well as we are a new challenge blog, we need you to create something to do
with "NEW"
Now how you interpret that is purely upto you but for some ideas,
New Home, New Baby, New Marriage, New Job, you get the idea.

Introducing June - A race for life stamp..:)

I designed this stamp especially for the Race for Life charity run.

I have named her June. :)

I shall be donating £1.00 for every stamp sold to the Cancer Research Charity.

She is quite a versatile stamp in that the Text is actually seperate to the image and so she can be used for Congrats, Good Luck, Well done etc. I have left the banner blank for you to use as you wish :)

June shall be available for pre-order from Monday 18th May - orders shall be dispatched on the 25th May. ;)

She is of course available to buy from The Crafty Pad

The price for the June stamp is £3.00

Challenge 22 over at the....

Crafty Pad is....
The sun was shining so let's see something 'Shine' on your cards. You may interpet this whichever way you please, i.e. metallic, glitter, image of the sun shining etc. :)

I have used my Butterfly stamps for this card and stamp directly onto beautiful metallic embossed Kay & Co paper. Used a gorgeous big flower (which reminds me of the sun) and a metallic brad in the centre of it. Also used a bling buckle. ;)

There is a crafty pad stamp of your choice for the winner this week - poop over to The Crafty Pad for the full details. :)
Would be great to see you there and the sale is still running - so you may grab yourself a bargain. :)
