A Triangle.........

I remembered this The Challenge over at The Crafty Pad challenge site is a 'Triangle' have a triangular shape on your card or make the whole card triangular.

Here are two very quick and easy cards from me this week :-

For the first card I have used Christmas Ted - bringing home his Christmas Tree stamp from The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs.  BP is Shabby Princess Holiday Downloads.  CB embossing folder, glitter glue, ribbon and rub-ons from stash.

For the second card I have used Christmas Ted stamp again (I love this stamp). BP is Papermania - I think. Tore the words out of the sheet of paper and glued on.  I also used puffy paint which I lightly smeared on just to give a textured look.

Look what I received from my lovely friend Rozzy. This is her DT make for The Crafty Pad challenge this week too - and I can tell you that it is absolutely gorgeous in real life. It now has pride of place in my living room. :) Thank you so much Rozzy I love it to bits. :)


Do pop over to The Crafty Pad and check out the challenge - lots of wonderful inspiration from the DT and GDT members. :)
The Sale is underway over at The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs too and of course don't forget about the Blog Candy Giveway there too - 1 more week to run. :) :)

Thanks for loooking and hope all my wonderful blogging pals are doing ok. :) :)

Big Oops!!!!

I really don't know where my head has gone - if anyone finds it please post it back to

I forgot to post up this card I made for The Crafty Pad challenge which of course runs from Sunday to Sunday.

It is following a sketch drawn up by our lovely Maxine - here is my take on it :-

I have used Percy Penguin - stargazing stamp from The Crafty Pad.
The main card is actually backed with a fine material which has glittery bits all over it - it reminded me of glistening
Blue foil - BC embossing folder - nesties - Promarkers
I have to say that this card is much nicer looking in real life - honest.  It was difficult to get the effect of the glittery material.

Thanks for looking :)

I would also like to say a huge sorry to all my wonderful blogging pals - I haven't been around to visit you for a while now - but I will get there - please bear with me. :) :)  I may go all quiet for a few days before I do so though..:) :)
