Paper Sundaes DT card and candy winners

Hello all my Sundae bloggers and my once again scheduled post....yes working and I will be tired too cos I had a late night on Friday and then up early yesterday and today and last night my mum was having a buffet night as my cousins are over from Italy so it was a kind of farewell thingy as they are heading home today but the next batch are hopefully coming over in March. The Christmas party on Friday was great and even better when you don't spend any money so I had to make good use of all the free!! Managed work yesterday but was mega tired so I had an early night last night when I came home from my mums...back to normal today.

The challenge this week over at Paper Sundaes is "Valentines"....mwah,mwah, mwah!! Our sponsor this week is Pink Cat many fab stamps and digi images to choose from.

It's sketch time at Sweet Stampin'......

Good morning folks and this is my scheduled post....2 reasons...I am hopefully at my work as you are reading this post as it was my works Christmas night out last night and secondly...I might be a bit sleepy. I won't have a hangover cos I'm a good girl and I don't drink any bad stuff....aahemm!! Now then this weeks challenge over at Sweet Stampin' is a fabulous sketch.

Our sponsor this week is Simply Betty....who stock fabulous images both in digi form and rubber and our monthly sponsor is Whimsy Stamps who also have the most adorable stamps.

For my card this week I have used BG papers - Archaic collection...thought these were perfect for this image as they a dinosaury, although you can't see any dinosaurs on the pieces I have used...ha ha!! The image is from Simply Betty and coloured it with copics and this is just the perfect image...Michaels birthday is in a few weeks...he is growing his hair a bit(messy but the fashion) and he has his little pet dinosaur...Spike so this card will be put aside for Michael. The sentiment is from Hero Arts which I stamped and I needed to cut it out so it would fit in the space. I have entered the following challenges.

Fab 'n' Funky - digi
Cards for Men - Let's party/celebrations
Alphabet Challenge - M for men

I promise to send something handmade to the first five people who comment on this post. However, there's a catch. You must post this, offering something handmade to five other people.

The rules state that it must be something handmade or homemade by you and needs to be sent to five other people during almost a whole year to get making!!

If you'd like to join in the fun, then be the first to post a comment and something handmade or homemade will be coming your way at some point this year.

Is that a great idea or is that a great idea?

I think it's fab! I hope that five of you would like something made by me!

Another Happy Birthday....

This is just a quickie....I received my new promarkers today which I won over at Passion for Promarkers...a whopping 40 pens to add to my very little I won't need to steal Holly's promarkers...hee hee!! so anyway since I had so many to choose from I thought I better test them out so I inked up this little Hippie Chick from Sugar Nellie which you can buy here. I gave her some freckles too...The papers are from Stampin' Up - Sweet pea collection...the colour is bit iffy but I will take another in daylight but for now here it is.

Happy birthday...

I folks...well I couldn't wait any longer...I had to use one of the simply sassy stamps I already had for this card. The postie has not brought my new stamps!!!! I also couldn't decide whether to enter the GDT call for the Simply as you can see I have decided....although it's only for 2 months I thought I would give it a bash. For this card I have used BG - Marjolaine papers which I totally love just now. The image is Party Frills - Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy which I have coloured with promarkers. I had a few of these coloured from a few weeks ago as I had entered the Simply Sassy DT Call and was trying to perfect my colouring. I also added some stitching (still a bit wonky!!)and embossing, punch the ovals and finished off with those cute little flowers which are new from Wild Orchid Crafts..oh yes I also added some sequins and beads for the centres of the flowers on the embossed oval....hand sewn!! I have entered the following challenges.

Paper Sundaes DT card

Hi all and here we are all back to normal...other than the weather. I am back to normal and my scheduled post cos I am working today. The challenge this week over at Paper Sundaes is "circles".

Our sponsor this week is Lili of the exciting. They are releasing the next batch of stamps on Tuesday but you can get a sneaky peek at them here. So one lucky winner will be jumping for joy.

For my card I have used "It's my Party" and message stamp both from LOTV....she is such a stroppy little minx but sooooo cute!! I have also coloured her with copics. I have used Crate Paper - Paper Doll Collection papers as they fitted well with our challenge this week....circles. I cut the flowers with one of my favourite dies...yes that's right the 3d flower die...I love this!! The image has been cut out and layered onto a die cut circle. I still don't have a scallop die yet so I manually cut the scallops using the Stampin Up slit punch...I am getting to be dab hand at that but one day I will buy a scallop die!! Oh yes and some glitter to finish off!!

Sweet Stampin' DT card....

Well good morning all and a Haaaaappy New Year to you all. Would you believe it...I am so excited today as this is my first DT card for Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Our sponsor this week is Tiffany Doodles who are offering 5 digi's to one lucky winner.

Our monthly sponsor is Whimsy Stamps who are also offering 5 digi's.

The theme this week is to create a card/project from inspiration from your favourite song. Well I have lots of favourites and have gone with this one...can you guess what it is?? Well I have taken my inspiration from "Jai Ho" sung by The Pussycat Dolls for two reasons...first I love Slumdog Millionnaire, the song featured in that film and you know I go to a Zumba class and this is my favourite song to shake it to..makes me feel like a teenager again!! The image is from Tiddly Inks - Aisha which has been coloured with copics, I did a bit of blending on the dress and I thought I would cut Aisha out....since I like to do that. The DP is from Scenic Route - Laurel...lots of rich orange, pinks and reds. I stamped the letters onto the same matching paper and cut them out. I punched out the flowers and added some jewels and glitter....hope you like it.
