Craftbubble new challenge with news.

This week the new design team member was announced in the let's get stamping group on craftbubble and Karen has set us a fab sketch with the twist of using orange and brown. Well, I am delighted to say that the new design team member selected by Lauren and Karen is..............ME!!!!!!! I really am sooooo chuffed and I was hoping it was going to be me! I have been busy drawing sketches and thinking up twists and I'm enjoying that aspect already! My fellow bubblers are a great bunch of people and we have a lot of laughs along the way! Do please come and join us as we are one of the friendliest and supportive groups around but be warned we do giggle a fair bit! This is my take on Karen's sketchie!!
I have used Pink Petticoat papers, Martha Stewart doily punch, Pollycraft image and sizzix and nestabilities dies. Coloured with promarkers!!

Last weeks Craftbubble challenge

Last weeks Craftbubble challenge was the last one to be set by Katie as she is sadly stepping down from her position in the design team. An advert was placed in the group and we had to wait a week to see who had been appointed......Here's my take on Katie's challenge. I used a personal impression heart punch and made them into butterflies adding wire as the body all finished off with little paper flowers and punched leaves.


Oh I am so behind with everything and I don't know where the time is going! So the next few posts are catch ups! Last weeks Dottie's world challenge was to use stars on your card and use a charmed download of course! Here's mine which is better late than never and now I will have to do this weeks challenge as soon as possible!!

Christmas cards! What else??

Ok, I am getting to the point where I am fed up of making endless Christmas cards! Are you?? I must start them earlier next year! I always say that and never take my own good advice. I'd better start writing them soon and see how many I actually need to finish making. Perhaps then I can have a break and make some January birthday cards!

Lets get stamping group and Dottie's world challenge

This week on the let's get stamping group, Maddie provided the sketch with the added twist of adding spots and stripes. The Dottie's world challenge was to make a card for a boy.

Having a play today!

The weather has really been horrid today so I have happily been having a play with some images that I have printed out form Messy rabbit cd, charmed downloads and the Lofty stamps which are so cute.

Craftbubble challenge.

Today ove r on the craftbubble lets get stamping group, Lauren set this lovely sketch with the added twist to use one colour with white, black or cream. The image could be coloured however we pleased. I've used lots of embossing here, and stamping with ink to create backgrounds.

Dottie's world challenge

What a bad blogger I am! Just getting this one in by the skin of my teeth before the next Dottie's world challenge is posted! The theme for last sunday's challenge was black, red and white. Herer's mine!

Dottie's world win!

Oh I'm so delighted to have won the pixie chick stamps over on the dottie's world blog. I'm sooooo lucky! This weeks challenge was to make a card for a child. Here's one I have made using the pixie chick downloads, coloured with H20s and I have also used Pink Petticoat papers . Can't remember which collection as it was an off cut from another card I made. I think this card would also make a lovely card for a lady too!!

Sunday, 25 October 2009


This is another variation on Lauren's sketch. this time I have used a Pollycraft image, Pink Petticoat papers and Dovecraft spotty brads. I have used my H20s to paint it and I must say that I have enjoyed getting the paints out again.

Lauren's craftbubble challenge

Over on the lets get stamping group on Craftbubble the lovely Lauren has set the challenge this week. She did a fab sketch and here's two cards form me using that sketchie.

I have used gold eyelets and some gold ribbon which was recycled from last Christmas's choccies!! Waste not want not eh?!!
