Hoppy Day!

This is an Easter card I made last week using 2 of my gorgeous new Magnolia stamps....using the Friday Sketchers sketch from 2 weeks ago!! (I'm getting worse! lol)

Well the pub quiz was a huge success....I wasn't nervous and my questions went down well....we had lots of prizes which kept everything ticking over and we had great of all we raised £500 which was brilliant considering it was a cold, windy, lashing rain "skool" night....can't wait to the next one!!

I couldn't believe my eyes when I logged onto the Papertake Weekly blog this week to see that I'd won the prize from the previous week....woohoo I was thrilled so thank you PTW and Funky Fairys Papercrafts for my fab prize!

Unfortunately I haven't been able to do much blog hopping this past while, as I was quite busy with life outside crafts (is there really such a thing..? lol) and then I've had another few days of sickness!! I hope to get caught up again soon!

We're off to Newcastle-upon-Tyne tomorrow for a few days....can you believe we're almost into April...?! bx

Happy Mother's Day!

I hope all the "Mums" had a very special day on sunday! This is one of the cards I made for the occasion......thought this little Tilda was perfect.....and I've used some gorgeous glittery MME papers!

Gosh I've had a very busy few days again...and tonight I am "quiz host" for a fundraiser for my nephew...he is part of the Junior Belfast Giants under 14 team. They are trying to raise some funds to help with their trip to Latvia next month to partake in the Volvo International Cup....they're a great wee team! So please wish us all luck!! bx

My Crafty Adventure!

Marlene asked me to spill the here it is!! We made this card using "Truike" this magnolia stamp specially designed for the occasion!
We also made this cute little gift bag....loved the "natural" feel to this one!

A little wallet in which to keep stamped images...? There is another project but I have "loaned" it out so will show that at another time!

And of course any self-respecting crafter would give the till a good run for its money...look at all these yum-e papers....I was in paper heaven!!

This is some of my new magnolia stamps.....

...and some of my new embellies....couldn't get the rest into the photo....but you get the idea!!lol

I'm Back!

Hi everyone! Gosh it's been a while....I've been for a few hospital investigations, had a little craft trip to Amsterdam, which amongst other things seem to have kept me back from getting any craft time...and my camera broke which mean't I couldn't download any photos...but things are sorted now and here I am!!
On my craft adventure I managed to pick up lots of gorgeous new papers and quite a few new Magnolia stamps....2 of which I've used on this card! I'm entering my card into this week's Papertake Weekly Challenge - you have to have something edible on your card...what better than a lovely sticky cupcake?!! bx

Sweet Sixteen!

This card is for another 2 challenges and a perfect opportunity to use another gorjuss girl!!

I used the fab sketch by Kristine at Friday Sketches....and the challenge this week at Papertake Weekly was to use the colours pink, orange and brown...a lovely combination! bx

CCT challenge 49 - Animal Magic!

I'm really enjoying my gorjuss girl stamps....I used a couple of images from the WOJ spring kit (the butterfly and tree stump) so my girlie had somewhere to lean against while she chatted to her l'il cat which makes it fit CCT's Animal Magic theme ! I love how you can afford to be a little "funky" when colouring these images!!

I thought this A Muse sentiment was perfect with the image....I got this gorgeous sheet of PP at a closing down sale recently...what a bargain it was! bx

A Foxy Lady...!

Finally I got to make a card.....after muchos shuffling of paper and "willing" things to happen for me!!!! I find it so hard to keep up with all the challenges so this card is for 2!

I used the Ismaki sketch for this week...really liked it, thank you Ismaki!

I "christened" my new gorjuss girl and made a christmas card for the current Sugar Bowl challenge!

I think she looks great in her paper pieced outfit - I used the Basic Grey wassail paper pack I won in a candy from Frances - thank you Frances!!

Recently 2 blogging buddies were very kind to pass an award to me! I got this award from Natalie
And I got this award from Maria

A huge "thank you" for you both - I appreciate you so much for thinking of me! bx
