New let's get stamping group challenge on craftbubble


It was my turn to set the challenge this week on the let's get stamping group on craftbubble. My twist this week is to use some element of your stationary box be it a safety pin, staple or paperclip or even a piece of sticky tape. I have used a cocktail stick, paperclip, piece of cotton and sticky tape to make the little fishing rod. The image is a lili of the valley one which was kindly sent to me by a dear friend. Isn't he a cutie pie? Awh xx

I have a massive collection of Pink Petticoat papers and images and to celebrate their download sale on at the mo here's a card! Any excue to use their lush images and papers!! xx

Dottie's world challenge..blood, sweat and tears!!


Thios week on the Dottie's world challenge we were asked to use something old and something new as well as a charmed download. This turned out to be a real labour of love as I sliced open my finger on my paper trimmer which bled all over my papers so I had to bin them and start again! Then my sewing m achine jammed and continued to jam and several hours later I found it was something so very simple! I had put the wrong bobbin in it from a differnet machine and it was therefore loose! Oh I cried!! Tears of joy that it was working again and anger because it was something so silly!
Anyway, the something old is the papers, twinkling H20s and sewing machine ( 17 years old!) and the something new are the paper flowers and fibres.

Craftbubble LGS group design team debut

Today is my design team debut on the craftbubble lets get stamping group. Here's my sketch.
My twist is to be inspired by knickers! The patterns, the colours and trimmings, saucy ones or Bridget Jones style...the choice is yours. I'm hoping that it has put a smile on my fellow craftbubblers faces ( all four faces!!)
Here's my interpretation of it.
