Eeeee! Found a halloween challenge this morning on the Crafty Ribbons challenge blog. Halloween is my fav time of the year and I love making Halloweeny cards and projects. For this

Love all her images to bits! Just can't get enough of them. The haunted house image I scanned and printed from this months "Simply Cards and Paper Crafts'", you got two pages of free halloween images by David Parkins. Had so much fun making this. Hoping to find lots of challenges with halloween themes this month. Thanks for looking. :)

Magical Monday challenge / Christmas in September

Here I have tried to do a clean cut card again, and this one I am entering in Magical Monday Challenge. The theme is Christmas in September. I have used white and dark green card stock from the Paper Mill in Aberdeen. The papers are designed by Emma Schonenberg. The snow man image and tags and sentiment, were all matching cutouts from the same paper range. The bling is from Hobby craft and the brad was from stash. Cut the "smiles" bauble and attached the brad so that you can slide up and write your chrismas message in. Thanks for popping by. :)

Our Creative Corner / Numbers

Here is a note book tag card I have made for my future step daughter Paige's birthday. She is 5 on wednesday and loves PINK. So I though I would make her something that she could keep, so I put some pictures in and then she can scribble in the note pad. I have used Bo Bunny and Lilykate papers. The ribbon is from "celebrate", the buttons and bling are from hobby craft. The little star charm I purchased on Ebay. The red wooden hearts I also bought from Hobby Craft. The numbers and letters are from a sticker sheet from Bo Bunny swell ( a very nice lady called Tracy gave me these :) )The notepad is from Asda (costs pence) and the tag book that I decorated I found in my stash box so, have no idea where it came from, sorry. I am entering this card in this weeks "Our Creative Corner" challenge. The theme is "numbers". The design team has some really funky creations. Had lots of fun making these. Have a good day. :)

All sorts challenge 122/ Keep it simple

Afternoon. Trying out this challenge this week, All Sorts. This week the theme is "keep it simple". I always cram as much things as I possible can on my cards and projects, so thought this would be a challenge for me. To keep it clean and simple and no embellishments :O. So I have used paper designed by Alison Butler. The sentiment is a cut out from these papers too. The red and white card stock I purchased at the Papermill in Aberdeen. I made this card an easel fold card, love "stand up" cards. The leather thongs I used is from my stash. Had run out of brown ribbon, nearly had a fit but found this. :) Have a good day and thanks for coming by. xxx

Got my hands on these lovely Saturated Canary digi stamps yesterday, and couldn't help myself..had to make a card straight away! :) So here I have used the image Violet and coloured her in with pro markers.

Crafty Ribbons 2/Creatalicious 26 - Anything goes

Evening. Thought I'd squeeze a little project in before bedtime. Bought a little tin bucket (or actually several...) from Hobby Craft the other day. Thought the little ones would be great for putting in the xmas tree and of course, the big ones would be great for pressie. Specially if you can fill them with sweets. :) So I decorated this one with Polka doodles stickers, the bling and buttons are from there too. Ribbons are from stash. Nipped to the local shop and got some strawberry and cream sweeties and filled

a cellophane bag .(Which I purchased on Ebay in bulk) It's a quick make and I just love the "Santa, I can explain EVERYTHING"...Anyway, I am having a right "anything goes" week this week. I am entering this project in two challenges, both "anything goes". First the second challenge by Crafty Ribbons, and last the 26th challenge by Creatalicious. If you want to join in any of these challenges, I have banners at the bottom of my page for all the challenges I use. Thank you for looking and hope you all had a good weekend.xx

OH, and check out the Autumn Colours challenge on the Squiggle blog! Thanks for coming for a nosy. Have a good sunday. :)

Winter Wonderland Challenge/Girly Christmas

I made a christmas card this morning, since I have millions to make before christmas, so trying to be organised. Here I have made a card with a Magnolia image, which I coloured in with Pro Markers (which are my fav). The papers are really funky, they were given to me by my lovely friends, so I have no idea where they are from. Sorry. Ribbons and embellishments are all from Hobby Craft. The craft wire I bought on Ebay and the little hearts attached to it are hand cut. I am entering this card in this weeks Winter Wonderland Challenge. I have never entered this challenge before, but I think I might join in every week. They are encouraging people to make a christmas card every week, which will give everyone some motivation to get cracking. :) This weeks challenge is "girly christmas", hence why I have included the Magnolia image. Had loads of fun making this. Time for a cup of tea and a biscuit and a nosy at all the other entries. Thanks for looking. :)

Cute Card Thursday 182/Creative Inspirations - Anything goes.

Morning. Here is my birdhouse that I am entering in this weeks Cute Card Thursday. I know it's not a card BUT this week the challenge is "anything goes", so I thought I could enter my birdhouse here. The birdhouse I bought in asda, it was just a plain wooden bird box. I used papers from a christmas magazine pack, from Polka doodles. The flowers and embellishments I purchased in Hobby Craft a couple of weeks ago. The idea for the bunting with "merry christmas" and "joy" I got from the magazine. It has loads of good ideas in it. It was a bit fiddly to cut the paper by hand to fit. The snowy roof I hand cut and inked and glued on. It was so much fun, might do another few of these. Perfect for decorating your house for xmas or for a pressie.
If you want to participate, just click on my head line of this post and it will take you to their challenge blog. I am also entering this project in the Creative Inspiration challenge this week which is also "anything goes" ( Thanks for popping by. Have a good weekend. Hugs. xxx

Here is a mural I did for a friend of mine's son, Lucas. He is really into Starwars. This was a few months ago, thought I'd put some pictures up. :)
