...some cards that are almost on their way. MUM and JORDY'S FAMILY: DON'T LOOK :)

I created this one using a sketch over at the Craft Mad forum. Disclaimer for all of the photos following, due to bad weather, all photos were taken inside with poor natural light, so they're a bit more vibrant in real life ;)

This one I just used my own imagination :)

Oh and this one was my own imagination too :)

For this one I used the SM monthly card challenge, it is so sweet in real life.

And this one was actually the one that started it all! It was for the 'Easter' themed challenge over at Scrap Chat N Challenges which has moved to

More to come (probably next weekend at this rate), stay tuned ♥ ♥ ♥

A quickie...

...last scrap for the weekend. Wasn't feeling too well this morning, so this afternoon I thought about scrapping but I've done so many cards lately, time for something different. I headed over to SM and decided I test my off-the-page ability with one of Heidi's sketches and voila! It's a CD that's been daubed and splattered and smooshed with alcohol ink in 'Stream', then stamped with Hero Arts Antique Writing stamp (one of my favourites of all), embossed with Zing metallic copper embossing powder and all little bits of ephemera added to it! First layout this year, yikes!

Hopefully more to come soon, ♥ ♥ ♥

I love weekends...

...bring on the card-making!!

I made a baby card for Stamptacular Sunday theme, 'You and Me and Baby Makes Three'. I tried out embossing acetate and it turns out alright!

And this little one is for the 2S4Y sketch, more acetate stamping and embossing, whoot!!

More to come, stay tuned ♥ ♥ ♥

Work is blah blah...

...but at least I still have my creative outlet here :) I got in and made a couple of cards for some more challenges before work sends me away for a couple of days... Might have to try to sneak some stuff with me for the down time ;)

This one I made for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge theme, 'Shades of Grey'. I was trying to make a boys card but yet again, those pesky little flowers crept in ;)

And this little one was made for the SSDS open themed challenge. I decided to use my little gin bottle printing block I found at the markets as a stamp and used the masking technique to add a bit more to it! I've never tried it before but I really like how it turned out :)

More to come (hopefully over the weekend), stay tuned ♥ ♥ ♥

Part two... the end of the vacation. :( But I filled my last days with crafting goodness and came up with these entries for challenges here there and everywhere!!!

This one is for the Friday Sketchers sketch. I love the little guitar my craft robo cut for me! I've never made a rock style card before, but I think I like it :)

This one was for OCC's sketch. Eeek, I decided to take my colour cue from the PP I decided to use and green and orange, well, okay :8. I think it still turned out alright!?!

This one was for the Fussy and Fancy theme, 'Movies'. I couldn't help it, as soon as I saw this challenge I looked at my DVDs and which one jumped out at me? STARDUST. I had the craft robo cut me a couple and stole a line from the movie for my sentiment. It looks a lot better in real life, I think it has too much light on it maybe...

And bringing up the rear :), is this one for Stamp Something's theme, 'Something Girly'. What's more girly than pink and teddy bears?

More to come (hopefully), stay tuned ♥ ♥ ♥

Part one...

...of the final countdown to my holidays and I made a record 34 cards in 2 weeks!! Well, a record for me that is. Thanks to all the inspiration blogs that helped me out, hopefully I'll still be able to participate in as many challenges I can, but work is... arrggghhh!

Here's one I made for the Paperplay theme, 'Just Because'. Loving my Kaisercraft Fancy Flourishes, thanks mum :)

This one was for the ICS sketch this week. Didn't realise such plain colours could be put together and still work out pretty nice :)

This one is for the 2S4Y sketch. I used one of my own handmade inchies for a little added pizazz, pity there's a bit too much light on the card when I took the photo, oh well...

And finally in this instalment is one for Papertake Weekly's theme, 'Buttons, Bows, Brads and Bling'. There's buttons at the sides of the ribbon, bling everywhere :), brads in the centres of the tiny white flowers and a bow around the rose stems! I like it, playing with the Tattered Angels glimmermist and screens and Smooch Spritz again.

More to come very soon, stay tuned ♥ ♥ ♥

The other half...

...of the motley crue! Yep, still poor lighting for these ones, but the weatherman couldn't promise me any sunshine in the near future, so...

I made this one for the Sunday Sketch and Stamp sketch. I gave myself an extra task of making a masculine card for this one, still snuck in some roses though, hehe!!!

This next one is for the SSDS theme, 'Sparkle'. I wish the sun had of lit up the sparkle on this one. I can never seem to catch a break when photographing cards with glitter, doh!

And finally this little one was made for the Friday Sketchers sketch :)

More to come, stay tuned ♥ ♥ ♥

One half...

..of a few days of challenges. I've been trying to hold out for a day of brilliant sunshine to take photos but I've only had overcast misery... Hope they still come out alright :)

I made this one for Stamptacular Sunday's theme, 'Back In Time'. Tried to make it as vintage as I could. I need some proper clock stamps, I like the look of them so much :)

This one is my take on the Mojo Monday sketch, wish I had better lighting :(

And this little gem was created for the OCC sketch. Really loving the look of those silver outline corner stickers, so sweet!!

More to come very soon, stay tuned ♥ ♥ ♥
