No crafting ......

I have not been crafting so have nothing to show sorry.. :(

I have been feeling a bit out of sorts over the last few days so thought I would take a few days off from crafting. I haven't even made a DT for The Crafty Pad - but please do pop over to The Crafty Pad and see the challenge for this week and all the wonderful creations from my lovely talented DT members. There are 2 GDT members (Suzi and Sarah) this week too so well worth a look. :) :)

I haven't been totally lazy..lol..I have still be sorting and posting out all the orders for The Crafty Pad.. :) :)

I must thank everyone too for the orders for The Personalised Story Book - I can't wait to see the books you make up.

I should have named Percy - Popular Percy..lol he is popular at the moment too. :) :)

Well I think that is it for now and please don't forget me lol.

Hope you all have a happy crafty week. :) :)

I hope to be crafting again real soon. :)

Who doesn't like a bit of sparkle... ?

This weeks The Crafty Pad challenge is -

Let's see some Christmas sparkle and ribbon.
We would like you to make a Christmas card, Atc, fat page,
layout, altered art etc it can be anything as long
as it is in the Christmas theme. :)

The prize shall be 1 week GDT and a Crafty Pad stamp
that the DT shall be working with too. :) :)

This week's GDT - please welcome the very lovely Sylvia from
Poppys Paper Craft Patch Sylvia's work is beautiful and it is a pleasure to work with her.

This is my take on the challenge:-

I have used Percy - sleding and the text stamp from
Percy & Parker for my card, he is one of my
newly released
Christmas stamps - available HERE.

The prize this for last weeks challenge was a GDT spot
for4 weeks with The Crafty Pad, but I felt that there should
be more than one winner after seeing the beautiful entries.
So I chose to have 3 winners - oh yes 3..:) :)

Pop over to The Crafty Pad and find out who the winners are. :)
Maybe you will have time to enter this weeks challenge too -

Challenge 36 is.............

This week over at The Crafty Pad we have a sketch for our challenge. :)

You may twist it, turn it, add further
embellishments if you wish. :)

You are not solely restricted to cards -
your entry can be ATC, FP, Layout or Altered Art etc. :)

Your name will be entered twice into the draw if you use a Crafty Pad Stamp.
Your name will go into the draw once if you do not use a Crafty Pad Stamp. :)

Thought I would change the prize - so now
The winner will win 4 weeks GDT spot and 2
Crafty Pad stamps that the DT will be working with. :)

I would like to welcome the very lovely Suzie
this week as our GDT,
Suzie will also be doing 20th September too. :)

Here is my take on the sketch -

I have used the bauble and text set from
Christmas Ted range of stamps..HERE
which I embossed using Jewelled Gold EP.
Plain pearlescent glod paper
Dark navy card
Bling and ribbon from stash

I thought I would keep this card more contemporary.
Must say it did stamp and emboss nicely. :) :)

Please pop over and see the other DT members work. :)

Also the Personalized short story project using Christmas Ted. :)

U.K. P&P is free and I do ship abroad. :)

CRAFT Challenge

Over at CRAFT challenge this week they would like us to make anything but a card.

So I decided to make a 'twinchie' - thought this would be nice and quick because I did'nt have much mojo left. I have been tyding my craft area - mainly sorting out all my embellishments and putting them into named tubs. :)

Well here is my twinchie - I have used Belinda in reflection for this - but only use Belinda herself and not her reflection..lol I cut her out and used 3D gloss to make her stand out a wee bit more. ;)

Belinda is available from The Crafty Pad.
