A new buy...

Good evening bloggers, thought I would quickly post this before X Factor which is due to start soon but I am sky plussing it so I can fast forward the ads!!

I coloured this little stamp last night, it was one of my buys at the SECC on Thursday. It's from Lili of the Valley and has been coloured with copics, I also glittered it up with come glamour dust. The paper I used is MME 12 Days of Christmas which is just fab...which I also distressed each of the layers. The message is also from LOTV. I added a ribbon and a little snowflake charm.

Now before I go I thought I would also post a piccy of my masterpiece...the scarf which is supposed to take 1 hour to complete but in my case it took 5 hours...but I am chuffed with it, I love all those ruffles.

There's a Halloween thing going on...

Good morning Saturday bloggers and my scheduled post...back at work!! Today's challenge over at Sweet Stampin' is "Halloween".

Our sponsor this week is the fabby Bugaboo and are giving 7 digs to one lucky winner.

For my card I have used Stella Calendar month - October from Bugaboo and I coloured her with copics. The papers are from MME - Mischievous collection and are perfect for those Halloween projects. I cut the pumkins with a sizzix die however I had to cut the them down to size as they were just too big for the card...

Sugar Bowl Challenge #70

Good morning sugar addicts...did I tell you I am holiday this week?? This time next week I will be on my way to the SECC to meet up with some sugar fans and of course to buy some new stash!!

Today's challenge over at The Sugar Bowl is Maria Therese's sketch below... always the optional theme is "clean and simple".

Also up for grabs is 4 Sugar Nellie stamps from Funky Kits....

...but if there is more than 100 entries then 6 stamps is on offer.

For my card it is very CAS which is a bit out of my comfort zone however it means the main focus is on the image and what a cutie this stamp is. It's Jelly Pip which you can buy here. I coloured her with copics, added a flourish and a couple of rolled flowers....that easy so if I can do it so can you.

In stitches....

Good morning Saturday campers and my scheduled post...yay!! Fabby weather we are having...not!! I can't believe how rubbish the weather has been this week in Scotland...I was truly and utterly drookit last weekend going to work and at this moment as it's Thursday I don't know if I will be drookit on Saturday yet!!

Well I hope today is a good day...I am on day 3 of my slimming world diet, so far so good but as I say it's only day 3 but I am determined to go down at least one size.

The challenge this week over at Sweet Stampin' is "in stitches". One of my favourites, I love stitching on cards, I think it really finishes them off.

The sponsor is Bunny Zoe who is offering a £10 voucher to spend in her store.

For today's card I have used one of Krista's digis, she is called Frizzy Jynx and you can buy her here. I coloured the image with copics, thought I would use some bright, funky colours and I also tried to colour her boots like real UGG boots...they do look better IRL. The papers are from Fancy pants - Summers End collection...they are yummy!! I added a few buttons to the centres of the flowers, ribbon and a message.
