It's Raining.......HUGS....

Hugs and Birthday wishes...... Hi there hope you are all having a lovely weekend, it's been raining the past two days and I found this fab Freebie image from Dustin Pike so I went with the You must visit his blog his illustrations are just fantastic.
I've managed to squeeze in 4 challenges with this one. Papertake weekly want digi downloads, the sketch I used is from Cupcake craft,and Digital Tuesday want you to use a digi image and use up old paper scraps. Ive had this paper lying around for about 3 years and very rarely used it, so I think that qualifies me for that one. Lastly The Pink Elephant want to see your favourite colour combo and as green is my favourite colour I've entered it there too.
I'm off work for the next 2 weeks so I should be able to catch up with some challenges and orders. I've got loads of things planned for the house too, some decorating moving stuff around and also lots to do in the garden. Laying some turf, moving the shed and slabs.....phew I'll need a holiday when I'm done... I'm not doing it all myself, obviously, William is also off and the boys said they would help too.All we need is the weather to get on with it. Be back soon with more cards.

Charisma Cardz Challenge # 25 Any theme any style....

Good morning everyone, I'm feeling really good today 'cause I'm now on holiday for two weeks. Wow!! and I have a day to myself today so I'll be busy crafting.

Now on to this weeks challenge ....

This week at Charisma we are proud to be sponsored by Rubbernecker Stamps and we can exclusively announce to you crafty bloggers out there that Rubbernecker, as of today will now be shipping orders to the UK. We are also celebrating the launch of the companies new range of stamps and stamps sets, all of this weeks DT cards and projects feature Rubbernecker stamps. Why not give Rubbernecker a visit and see the full range of fab stamps they have to offer.

There will be not 1, but 4 winners this week! and everyone who takes part can have up to 4 entries! (new work please!) This week you can make anything you like so get crafting and above all have fun!! Why not check out the Charisma blog where we have the rest of the fab DT cards and projects and this weeks prize.
I have used stamps from the Rubbernecker New Release Floral Set.

On the Card and Gift Bag I used the fern stamp to make the background. Then I stamped the flowers in vases stamps and mounted them on to Labels 2 Nesties. The sentiment on this card is Computer generated, not Rubbernecker, and I used two little flowers with buttons from Sassy's candy box that I won a few weeks ago.

The next card I made with an added Tag which is tucked in behind the circle. Stamped with a flower in vase stamp and also the sentiment stamp from Rubbernecker. I added a little butterfly charm and ribbon from my stash. The DP on the card are from HOTP and I used a Fiskars border punch. Added ribbon and roses again from the candy box, and used another sentiment stamp from Rubbernecker. I also added a swirl and flower from my stash.

Looking forward to seeing all your fab creations again this week. Don't forget you can enter up to 4 projects this week, and we will have 4 winners. Have fun....

Glamour Puss.....

Good morning everyone, hope you are all well and the sun is shining wherever you are. Nothing but rain here the past few days such a change from last weeks heatwave.

This is my DT card this week for our challenge over at Charisma Cardz. The theme for your challenge this week is 'Diamonds are a girls best friend'. You can interpret this anyway you like, and as always, you can make whatever you want. As you can see......I didn't use a girl.....well not the human variety anyway, my female is a feline. I really don't know why I chose a cat for this card 'cause I'm not a 'CAT' person, but she just looked really elegant. Hope you like her. I cut her on my Robo and then added a lovely diamond collar. I matched the paper to her fab eyes and added a flower from Poppicrafts and a sentiment done on the computer mounted on oval Nesties. Quite a simple design. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Have a lovely day.

The colours are blue green and lilac, and there is also a circle there too.

Gorjuss in RED...

Hello everyone hope you are all having a great weekend. This card is for the Papertake weekly sketch challenge I coloured the image a few days ago and couldn't find any papers to match so I had a really good search through my stash today and came up with this. The papers are Basic grey Boxer the swirls were cut on my Robo and the Organza flower is one that my Mum got me a long time ago. I matched up the other flower to the grey paper and the hair on the image. The little brad in the middle is from Papermania I just got these and a load of others yesterday. I'll do the inside later on. I did see a challenge for the inside of your card but as usual I can't remember where I saw it. Hope you like it I've been dying to do a red card for ages. Might be back later with some more cards. Happy Saturday....
