Celebrate Christmas

Afternoon lovelies, gosh it feels like ages since I posted anything here!

I am struggling a bit at the moment, this time of year is very difficult for me and I have really not been feeling like crafting at all, luckily I had this card done a few weeks ago otherwise I might not have had anything for today either. So I want to say a big thank you to all my dt's.

So lets get onto the new challenge over at Tildas Town, the theme this week is 'Celebrate Christmas', a nice and easy one for you. The perfect challenge for you to add another chrissy card to your pile of them!

I have used a couple of older magnolia stamps called tilda decorating tree and christmas tree
Hope you can join us this week, as always the randomly picked winner gets a tildas town gift certificate to buy a stamp of their choice and as there is free worldwide postage, thats more pennies for stamps!

Anything but Square

Good morning my lovelies, how are you all, well just think 5 weeks today christmas will be all over with!!!! Are you organised, I am slowly getting there, hoping to be finished with shopping soon, mind you I say this every year then I realise I have forgotten something and have to brave the shops in the last week!

Its time for a new challenge over at Mo's and the theme this week is ANYTHING BUT SQUARE, I have made this card for my niece, Ellie, its for her 7th birthday next week. Its a bit different for me as there is not one single flower on it!! Shock horror! Lol!
I have used my go create die to make a shaped card, which I have put onto a round card blank. I have used this cute Ballerina called Lil Balllerina and she can be bought HERE.

Hope you can join in, the more entries the more winners, remember to always use a Mo's image to qualify.

Pastel colours at Deep Ocean

Hi lovelies, hope you are all managing to avoid the dreaded winter bugs? We were doing not bad after everyone having the cold here the other week, but Alex came down this morning with tummy bug that has just knocked him for six! You know he's not well when he has been laying on the sofa most of the day and asked to go for a nap when Maya had hers this afternoon!

 That will him be off school till Thursday at the earliest this week now as his school has a 48 hour clear from any d & v. Its a good idea, I just wish everyone would follow it! Say no more!!! 

Anyways its time for a new challenge over at Deep Ocean Challenge, this weeks theme is PASTEL COLOURS, and we are sponsored by the lovely Sandy at Live and love crafts, (one of my most fav stores EVER!). The prize is a £10 gift certificate to spend in the online store, hmmmmmm wonder if I could sneakily enter???? Lol

So here is my card, I have made this for my nephews girlfriend's birthday this week, welcome to my new addiction, UPTOWN GIRLS from stamping bella!!! I have bought 3 of these stamps in a week, I am now sitting on my hands!!!!

Lets Chill at Mo's

Hi lovelies, well sorry I am a day late with this post but I had a humdinger of a migraine yesterday that started late on Wednesday night and finally cleared this morning, think is a record for me! Feeling very fuzzy today, I hate the after effects of a migraine.

So let me share my card with you that I made for this weeks challenge over at Mo's, the theme is Lets Chill, which could be a chilly wintery image or a relaxing chilled out image, as usual with Mo there are tons of choices. I have used this sweet image called winter fairy talva
Remember the more entries the more winners, just be sure to use an image of Mo's to enter, either digi or rubber!

Cold and Frosty at Joanna Sheen challenge

Hi everyone, I am running a bit late with this dt card, I have had a bit of a problem with my internet/computer. 
It is time for a new challenge over at Joanna Sheen challenge, and the theme this time is cold and frosty, I have used a Thomas Kinkade rubber stamp called Spirit of love. Not my usual kind of image and I must say it was a challenge for me to colour, but I got there in the end!
As always there is a fab prize to be won, as well as the chance to be a daily talent spot, hope you can join us

C is for......

Morning lovelies, well the sun is shining here this morning, which is lovely but it is still chilly. I have got Meghan off school since yesterday as she has a sore throat, and Maya is full of the cold. There seems to be a lot of bugs going about, it is driving me mad!

But anyway it is Thursday so it is time for a new challenge over at Mo's and this week our theme is C IS FOR.....

The card I have to share is the card I made for Alex and Maya to give to Meghan last week for her birthday. The image is Jo painting My C is For... Crafty /creative!

all around the world....

Evening lovelies, hope you are all well. Who was at bonfire events last night? We all went over to Meghan's best friends house for their annual bonfire and fireworks night, so a big thank you to the Dick family for having us and thanks Carol the soup was ace as always ;-)

Its time for a new challenge over at Deep Ocean Challenge, and the theme this time is ALL AROUND THE WORLD. So get looking through those images and stamps you have to see which one you will use. 

I struggled to pick a stamp this time I was trying to decide between 'Liberty Tilda' and this one which I believe is called 'Tilda with star dress.

 I have had her for ages and she had never seen ink so I thought it about time to get her inked up and coloured in!!

card recipe
image - tilda with star dress
flowers - WOC
rose trim & seam binding - ribbon girl
papers - Maja designs
pearls & doily from stash
ticket - magnolia ticket die

Winter Weather at Tildas Town

Afternoon lovelies, how are you all, I hope you staying warm and dry. 
Well this is quite a sad post as it is my last one as part of the original 'Team A' at Tildas Town. I have reapplied to join the team again but if I dont make the team I want to say I have had the best 6 months! It truly has been fabulous!! The Tildas town girlies are some of the best in blogland and it truly has been a delight to get to know them all. Fingers crossed for the dt call!! lol

This weeks theme is WINTER WEATHER which is quite easy considering the type of weather most of us are having!

I have used Ice Tilda and my new Tim Holtz tree line die, I am squarely placing the blame on Debbie for this, she costs me a fortune in timmy dies! lol (sorry Debbie, luv ya really mwah xx)

Anything Goes at Mo's

Morning lovelies, hope you are all well and to all my friends that have been in the path of hurricane Sandy I hope you are all safe and sound.

It is the start of another month, November already! who stole the rest of the year??? It has just flown by so quickly, I cant believe it will be christmas soon!!

We all know that the first challenge of each month at Mo's is anything goes, I have used Teen Witch as this card is Meghans 16th birthday card for her birthday yesterday. I actually requested this image to be drawn by Mo and I am so thrilled with the result, she even has curly hair like Meghan! Thank you Mo xx
