The Cute Card Thursday challenge this week is:

Bit o' Bling
Bring out your bling, any jewels, gems, pearls on your creations!

Well here is my card....

I used my new Hippy Girl Jewels stamp from Bizzy Becs.
I used some bling on her hairpiece and the buttons on her pants... oh and some sparkly glitter paper!

hope you like it!


My 1st "Bizzy Becs" stamp card

Here is a card I made using my new Bizzy Becs Stamp "Candy Kisses"

I used some Basic Grey paper, lace ribbon from Spotlight, blooms and card from my stash...

Oh, and I coloured the little darling in with my copics!

What do you think??

Magnolia Down Under - Under the Sea

Well It seems I am too late for the Magnolia down Under Challenge... as it s supposed to be in by midday Sat - It's now 1.10pm.. oops!!

The challenge was " under the sea"!

Well - I thought I would show you my card anyway.... I did not have any appropriate "sea" Magnolia stamps.. So I thought I would turn this pretty Tilda into a mermaid!

I've been feeling very UNMOTIVATED.... work has been busy and I just don't really feel like crafting (I think my Mojo ran off somewhere anyway)! But I received my Bizzy Becs stamps
this week and I love them!!! so....

come back later and I "just might" have some cards to show!

Stamping out Alzheimers

Have you checked out the Stampin out Alzheimers link at the side of my blog??


Anything that can be done here is worthwhile... Alzheimers is such a horrible disease... I watched it eat away at both my grandfathers (so sad!!) I wish that no one had to go through such a horrid ordeal ... praying they find a cure soon!

I created this cupcake for a challenge on the Stampin out Alzheimers site!

the cupcake is a template from Kelleigh and she has more templates at her store - Digichick
How fun!! :)

Thanks for looking... now I seem to be having troubles with:
1. blogger - keeps quitting/ not letting me leave comments! sporadically it does let me!
2. My wireless connection is dropping in and out all over the place... ahhhhhh!!!

Papertake Weekly Challenge :: Sketch challenge

The Papertake weekly challenge this week is a sketch by the fabulous Dawny

It's a great sketch... here is my attempt at making a card using the sketch:

I coloured this image that my mate Tina sent me some time ago.. and I wanted to keep it rather focal so I did not add in any extra embellishments etc! I think it works! I love the fairy anyway :)

Check out the Papertake Weekly Challenge.. there are some awesome creations there from the Design Team!

another peek

Well.... I am madly finishing up images for the TWO new download sets I've promised,
(available soon at Crafty Muse)

You have seen one whole image from one of the sets....that was quite some time ago now.... so, Here is a peek at a part of another image in that set...

I will give you a peek at another part of this image/ set during this week...

The good news is... both the new sets will be available at the end of the current CM challenge :)

Crafty Muse :: May Day Challenge

Well it's a couple of days late but I wanted to wait until Mothers Day to post my card!

The challenge this time is to create a project inspired by May Day!

love, flowers, romance....

I took the love and flowers side and decided to make a Mother's Card... so here it is:

I used Angelique sitting and also a Celtic stamp I am looking after whilst my friend L is overseas!

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! to all you Mum's out there!
and a big thanks to my Mum for all your love and care over the years!

Bizzy Becs Whiff of Joy challenge

Bec from Bizzy Becs is running a Whiff of Joy Challenge on her blog...

I thought I'd make a card and join in the fun:

"The requirements of the Challenge are one card entry per person - You Must Use

  • Whiff Of Joy Stamp
  • Lace - whether it is real lace, lace trim or punch lace is fine."
I did not have any real lace handy and so I made some out of a lacey looking punch!I think it works ok.

thanks to Teen for the image and Tegz for the water drops!!
