My new stamp

Hi Peeps!

I got a couple of lovely stamps the other day and this is one of them! As there were a few birthdays coming up I decided to use this image, she is cute isn't she! I used my new ink pad which was a black stazon and did some mating and layering and coloured the flowers in using my pink glitter gel pen (which again hasn't scanned very well) and that's it really!

My Time To Craft - Tickled Pink

Well yet again I've left it to the last minute to make this week's My Time to Craft challenge which was to make something pink! I made this birthday card, I covered a blank card with some lovely pink paper and then stamped a flower image which I coloured in with a mixture of stardust pens and watercolour pencils. I then mounted this on to the card, added a rub on and a little pink dragonfly brad!

My Time to Craft - Flowers

Well this is the first time I have tried the My Time to Craft challege which this week is flowers - I'm cutting it a bit fine though as the new challenge starts tomorrow!! I made this atc, I created the background with various chalk inks and then stamped the image and coloured it in using my stardust pens, I then sprayed it with glimour mist and added some multicoloured gems - it does look better in the flesh so to speak!!!

The Sunday Stampers - Man Oh Man

Well I managed to join in with the The Sunday Stampers challenge this week (just in the nick of time!) and the theme was to make something with a man on it! I made a card this time using a paper artsy stamp that has lots of men on! I covered a blank card with paper from the 7 Gypsy Morroco Journey pack. I swiped some white card with my milled lavendar distress ink and stamped the image with my very favourite vintage sepia versafine pad (I really must get another colour of versafine - I love this pad cus it picks up all the detail but it will run out soon at the rate I'm using it!) Then I mounted the image on some dark card and decided to put brads into each corner, but I didnt like it so I took them out and threaded fibres through instead and then mounted this on to the card. Thanks Hels I enjoyed doing this challenge :)

I thought I felt something!

Ann has tagged me!!!! And now I have to tell you all about myself - so quick - leave now whilst you've got the chance!!!

Question 1. What were you doing 10 years ago?

I am struggling to remember but I think this was the year that Andy and I went on holiday to Majorca where we met a couple who were also from Torquay. We hit it off immediately and I'm pleased to say we are still the very best of friends!

Question 2. What were you doing a year ago?

Unfortunately this is a bit easier to remember. We were devastated by the sudden death of Andy's dad through cancer, he was diagnosed with it at xmas and died at the end of February, a truly awful time. However, I did go to the NEC and met some lovely new friends from CSF and also saw some old familiar faces too (well not that old!!) It was a long day as the coach picked me up at 5.30am and I didn't get home until about 9.30pm. However, it was one of my friend's birthday (yes the ones we met in Majorca) so I rushed down town and spent the rest of the night with Andy and my mates and didn't get home until about 3.00am - I was very very tired!!!!

Question 3. Name 5 favourite snacks

Only 5!!!! Well first of all i love love love Walkers Chicken flavoured crisps. Then it would be pineapple, followed by Saint Agur cheese, egg mayonaise sandwiches and those lovely skinny chipsticks - cor I could just eat them right now!

Question 4. Name 5 things you would do if you were a millionaire

Treat all my friends and family.
Go on a very long holiday.
Donate money to some of my favourite charities.
Buy a new home in a pretty little village somewhere.
Get all the craft stuff I could ever possibly want!

Question 5. Name 5 things you like doing

Meeting up with friends.
Eating cheese and drinking cider!

Question 6. Name 5 things you will never wear again

A perm.
Black nail varnish.

Question 7. Name 5 favourite things

Andy - aka Angelbud (he will kill me if he reads this!)
My music collection & getting down to my favourite vibes
Chilling out on a hot summer's day drinking cider and laughing with my friends
Pebbles (my gorgeous puddy tat)
Being on holiday in a totally relaxed state with not a care in the world


So, I have to tag 5 friends, I guess that would be:


I look forward to reading all about you :)

My Mum's Card

Well I eventually finished my mums card in time - thank goodness! I made a little book which I decorated up with various bits and bobs, I wrote the message on the tag which is inside the back cover. I also put an advert in the local paper so hopefully when she gets back tomorrow she'll be pleased and not too embarrassed!

Golden Wedding Card

Andys mum asked me to make a 50th Wedding Anniversary card to give to her friends Eric and Joan, and this is what I did! She was very pleased with it which was a relief as its not really my style (although I do like decoupage), just hope that Eric and Joan like it too :)
