My theme ATC

The theme for this was 'Bee's' and I really like how this turned out, as I tend to do collagey things I thought this was 'clean' I may make another similar and turn it into a card.

Rubby Wedding Card

I did this for a friend and again it is a first for me, a word book, the idea being that it can be made into a scrapbook of the event. I belong to a local craft club so was able to have the word Ruby cut out on a circut machine. Again I stuck to basic colours to keep it uniform. I used my cuttlebug to cut out the circles, I then watermark stamped a flower onto that, I hand cut the scallpoped edges to each letter, added hearts to the hole punches and some flowers and gems. I did the verse's for the inside on word, but forgot to scan lol.

Bling Miniscrapbook

My first attempt at a minicsrapbook, fairly pleased with it although it did end up a little subdued, I stuck to monochrome as I thought it would be easier so black and white card and silver mirri, some of it is drawn as I don't seem to have any fashion stamps (shock) and a couple of peel-offs, I used a small butterfly and a boarder flower stamp with black stayzon, glitter glue and silver glitter pen to colour in and some lovely silver paper that looks like fabric, white organza ribbon and of course some adhesive gems.

I don't often do ATC's so this made a nice change, they are for a forum swap, the topic is 'France' so I thought I'd base each ATC on the colours of the French flag

All the girl images are craftyindividuals stamps, and a set of travel acrylic stamps, kept them all fairly basic, using distress ink pads and some mica powders.
After promising to be a better blogger I find it's been a month (ish) since I visited, and I've been given an award WOW!! Thank You Karen, so here goes

I love the snow but only if I'm inside lol
I once performed live at the Albert Hall (along with a trillion other Girls Brigaders)
My favorite crafting is stamping or anything that gets me messy
I spent a couple of years doing pottery which I love, but I'm really bad at
My favorite time of year is the Autum

My turn to give awards (gosh I feel all posh now)

Goodness me would you look at the dust and cobwebs in here!!, better do the h*****k

I would like to wish you all a very happy & healthy New Year for 2009

And to thank you for taking the time to veiw my blog, and in return my new years resolution is to post more than once a year.

These are my favorite Christmas cards, using stamps, inks and glitter.

Thought I'd better show that I have done more than calendar challenges!

This is a baby keepsake book that I made for a friend, using K&Co papers and the cuttlebug

Just when you thought that was the end of the calendar challenges....

December calendar challenge

Stamped and glittered, what else could I do?

November calendar challenge
Pens & pencils out again for this one, I hope you can read 'november' made out of fireworks, the background was done using a free stamp, bronze metalic ink and highligted useing a sukura white embossing pen.

October calendar challenge

This was great fun to do, I masked & stencil brushed the 'foggy' background, drew my scary ghost, he is glittered as well but you can't see that, then used orange & black card to create the embelishments

September's calendar challenge

Ohh look my favourite fairys have snuck in again lol

The background autum leaves and fairy's are stamped, I drew and watercoloured the rosehips, I enjoyed doing this one

August's calendar challenge
This one didn't turn out as I wanted, but I'd run out of time to do anything else, the centre of the sunflower is a raised glitter, but it doesn't show very well on here.

If I remember the weather correctly July's calendar challenge was wishfull thinking lol

June's calendar challenge
This one is all K & Co, and I used some Basic Grey stamps, and stitch rub-ons

May's calander challenge
For this one I chalked a pre-embossed card, added my favorite fairy's and a butterfly, and used some cuttlebug dies to lay over the design
