Seeing double

Good morning bloggers. I haven't been around much over the last week or so and for that I am very sorry. I have had a really stubborn flu bug that just will not go away. It's still lingering a little now but I m trying to ignore it.

Right enough moaning because it's time for another challenge over at Sketch N Stash. The optional theme this time is Girly and Blingy but you must follow the sketch below. Our fabulous sponsor is the
 Stamp Fairy who are offering a $10 gift certificate to spend in their store.

I have kept it quite simple and used a single sheet of first edition papers on a craftwork cards base. The scalloped edge has been attached using pop dots for dimension but you can see it in the photo. The gorgeous images are by Stamp Fairy and called Mimi stars. The sentiment was a free download from the Stamp Fairy store.

Thanks for stopping by and please do visit my talented team mate at Sketch N Stash they really do have some fab inspiration for you

Love and Romance

Good morning everyone. Its time for another challenge over at Diva's  by Design. The theme this time is Love and Romance. Our kind sponsor is Craftie Charlie.

 I cut my card shape with a new Cricut Cartridge called fancy edges. I have used my new favourite papers by Whimsy called romance. The gorgeous Mo Manning image is called With love and I have coloured her using Copics. I have used a variety of dies which are Nesties for the ovals, Memory box for the heart border and Die Namics for the little banner with the sentiment.
Dont forget to go visit my talented teamies at the Diva's blog and spread the love.

Love Grows

Good morning everyone I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I'm decorating at the moment so most of my time has been spent running back and forth to DIY shops and I still need to go back and get more paper I hope they don't run out. Wallpaper shopping is way more stressful than craft paper shopping!

Any way enough waffle and on to the real reason that I am here this morning.......................

It's time for another challenge over at Sketch N Stash and the theme this week is LOVE (what else could it be with valentines just round the corner!) 
Our fabulous sponsor is LOTV. All you have to do is follow the sketch below. How easy could that be?

For my card i have used Love grows by Lili of the Valley coloured with Copics. The papers are Romance by Whimsy. The cute little hearts have been cut using Die namics.

Thanks for Stopping by

It's Friday so it must be time for another Stampin for the Weekend challenge. This time we would like to see metal on your creations. Our sponsor this time is Saturated Canary. 
So to be in with a chance is winning some gorgeous images by the very talented Krista make sure that you pop along to the SFTW challenge blog and enter your creation not forgetting to use some metal of course.

My DT card.

I have used a gorgeous Saturated Canary Image Called Nikki and teamed her up with some fab My Minds Eye Papers (Lost and Found blue). I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page set and a Sizzix die for the bunting. My metal is a sentiment that says "Cherish Friends". All of the other bits and bobs are from my stash.
 Sorry it is a short post this time I am running late for work. See you later.


Jewellery making, creativity and a whole lot of rambling.................

So its been quite some time since I posted anything here and although I still love card making I haven't made anything for about 3 years...
