Farmyard theme on Craft mad and loving it.

Here's my entry for last week's theme on CMLI on craftbubble. The theme was farmyards!

Craft Mad and loving it challenge 3.

Our lovely Lauren set the challenge this week over on our craftbubble group. She provided a fab sketch and her twist was  "bloom where you're planted. "

My good news!

I won a charmed download collection on Dottie's World! I love my downloads and Louise's drawings are some of  the best digi designs out there! I  just love the new fairy tale collection and have a list of the digi stamps I want to own! I have chosen Sugar and Spice and am looking forward to these coming my way very soon! xx

Another easel

Dotties world challenge

This week on Dottie's world the challenge is to use a charmed downlaod and make a card that reflects a movie.  This was a pretty hard one and I'm ashamed to say that I went for the easy option and did The sword in the stone!

Craft Mad and loving it challenge 2.

This week on Craft mad and Loving it on the craftbubble group sees the challenge from Karen. Her twist is to use lace and pearls.
 Here's my take on her challenge.

This week's Dottie's World challenge.

This week over on Dottie's world the challenge is to make a summery card and a different card to your usual style.  I thought I'd make an easel card for a change as I haven't made one of these for a while.  I have been playing around with some images from the Once upon a time collection and have merged several images to get this final image.  The papers are freebies from Cardmaking and papercraft and I have dragged out my sewing maching to have a bit of a play with the stitching. A nice quickish card, perfect for a little girl this summer. This challenge also fits in with our Sunday themed challenge on Craft Mad and Loving it on Craftbubble which is to make anything covering the theme of fairy tales.

I confess to going a bit mad with this fab collection and made another two cards!

Moving on again!

It's been some time in the planning. but now I'm pleased to announce that Lauren, myself and Karen have branched out and started a new group on Craftbubble called Craft Mad and Loving it.  We will also be running a blog alongside this where we will be showcasing craft techniques, etc. I will pop the link on, later.
We have a brand new challenge this week, set by me and the challenge is to make a card inspired by the phrase " Ink and emboss my friend" In honour of our moving home form the LGS group to CMLI my sketch incorporates a suitcase!

My card uses two of the stamps from Elzybells, which I was saddend to see is closing its doors. My image is coloured with promarkers.

New Dottie's World challenge.

This week on Dottie's World the challenge is to make a card having a vintage and summer theme. Ok I have succombed and purchased the new Fairytale collection from Charmed crafts.  So, I couldn't resist it ok? It's a stunning collection and a bargain price and of course digi stamps have so much potential! I have merged three of the images from the collection and this little babe is for my nephew's birthday later in the month.

New Craftbubble challenge

This week on The LGS craftbubble group challenge, the delightful KathyK set us the challenge of making a Christmas card and the twist of using thread! Now Christmas not being me, I confess to having to grit my teeth with this one!  ( Sorry Kathy!!) It's not that I don't like making Chritsmas cards, it's just not for me until it's cold and chilly and the fire's on and hubby gets used to finding glitter in his boxer shorts!  Christmas in July just doesn't become me!
Anyway, the image is a Penny Black as is the sentiment.

Dottie's World

Last Sunday's Dottie's world challenge was to make a card using a charmed download and fiery colours.  I am very late blogging this as there is a new challenge tomorrow, but as I have said in my previous post Blogger and I had issues! My image is from the Pixie Chick collection and I see that they have a brand new fairytale collection available.  My crafty friends know how much I love my downloads, but I must resist the temptation, even though it is a stunning collection and I MUST have it! Better wait for next pay day then!

Time to move on.

After me and blogger falling out for a few weeks, I have been inspired by my fellow crafty friends to restart blogging. I didn't think I could do it as I had fallen out of love! Blogger played up big time and I had finished with with him! I refuse to messed around by a bad tempered piece of software! Pah! Well, typically I have given in! We have made up and I'm moving on, allowing blogger to become part of my life again.  I tell you though, one more dose of the funny business and he can forget it. I'll be moving to the other side!!! Blogger you have been warned!
