Wow, just how long has it been? Who would have thought I would ever go this long without crafting and blogging. :( things have just been so hectic as I now work full time. I will be back crafting again very very soon :) I've even bought some paint to re decorate my craft room :) the decorating bit is the easy bit, it's packing everything up and moving it out of the way that I'm gonna struggle with. Maybe il just start crafting again in the next cpl of days n then decorate another time haha :( I need to do some blog hopping too. I've really missed my crafting, it was my 'me time' so definitely staring back at it . Be back soon xxx

I haven’t joined in over at case study before. I managed to combine both the challenges into one for my creation. It’s quite a simple creation featuring only stamping.
Theres a lil bit of stitching going on but nothing else…no ribbon…no bling…no liquid pearls….hmmm maybe i lost the plot haha!
I like the way this card turned out in the end, quick,simple and clean looking (loving a bit of the old ‘case’ing)
Plaid stamp – Waltzing mouse
Butterfly stamp & sentiment stamp – papertrey

It’ been quite a while since i last blogged and quite a while since i did anything at all crafty. I started working full time which didnt leave me much time to spare. I’m now still working full time doing night shifts ,but i’ve cleared out me craft room (It was being used for storage) and now i plan on going in there at least once a week to do some crafting, i’ve really missed it. I’m back with a creation for The Shabby tea room . Their challenge is ‘pennant party’ You must include a pennant/ banner on your creation and use the colours from the inspiration pic. Iam very rusty at the crafting as this is the first creation i have made for almost 5 months!!! I created a gift bag and card for the challenge, these were made for one of Chloe’s school friends for her birthday.
The banner stamps are from waltzing mouse and the butterfly dies and stamps are from papertrey.
I shall be back with a giveaway in a couple of days as i was asked to review some scrapbooking software and have been given an extra one to give away on my blog
Thanks for looking…..it’s good to be back

…I know it’s been a while, if it weren’t for bad luck i sure wouldn’t have any.
Anyhows back to the reason of the post…lol ATS wednesday challenge blog is now having 2 challenges a month. One on the 1st wednesday and 1 on the 3rd wednesday. This week the challenge is ‘ANYTHING GOES’ so easy peasy right?? Ya may as well give it a go…what ya gotta lose ?? BUT you can WIN 3 stamps of your choice All ya gotta do is create something following the theme of the challenge and use a stamp that is sold by the ats store (They sell a LOT of different stamps by different companies so i’m sure that you will own one that they stock. (You don’t have to have bought it from ATS)
Here is what i created for this weeks challenge
All stamps used are ATS in house stamps which are CC Designs.
Papers are basic grey & magnolia
images stamped on neenah solar white cs and coloured using copics, specrtum noirs and prisma’s.

…Let it snow….let it snow!!! It may as well be snowing, it’s freezing today (the heatwave didn’t last long then lol The weather has gone completely bonkers !!!
There’s a new challenge over at LILI OF THE VALLEY, they must be feeling the chill as their theme this week is ‘LET IT SNOW’ . Iam still on with me Christmas cards and i wanted some that weren’t OTT that you could send to male or female and here is what i came up with.
I felt that this image went very easily with the simple approach, as there is plenty to look at on the image itself, so a simple card would go with it nicely I love this cute little image. I decorated the inside too. The sentiment inside, at the bottom reads ‘Let it snow’
I coloured the image in with prisma pencils. In my haste to get it all ‘sparkled’ up, i only went and forgot to colour the little star on the bird house!!!! I only just realised now that i have gone to post this
The paper used is basic grey. The sentiment is a chipbord sticker (Not sure who by,sorry)
Why not POP over to see what the DT girlies have created for your inspiration!
I’m also going to enter this card into the challenge over at Papertake Weekly who are celebrating their 4th birthday!! as their challenge is ‘anything goes’ this week.
