A fun new challenge for us this week at Crafty Creations - January is usually a pretty cold n chilly month - sooooooooLet's Heat it Up!

Lots of options for this challenge - hot colour combos, sandy shores, hot drinks, heat emboss - what will YOU think of?

I wanted to use a colour combo that i love - hot pink and orange....but as you can see a lil turquoise also crept in!! lol  I also "christened" another of my christmas presents with this fab (Sugar Nellie) image - I chose this image as she is having a hot perfect for this challenge!

If all has gone to plan, I am away on a trip with the hubster but I do hope you can join us this week - our fabulous sponsor is Whiff of Joy so please pop across to Crafty Creations for more details! bx

Crafty Creations - It's a Bird Thing!

Time for a new challenge at Crafty Creations - and this time there is 3 parts to the challenge!

1.  use a bird
2. use polka dots
3.  use green

This is my take on the challenge.  That fab bling birdcage is by Prima and I really wanted to make a feature of it....but my "bird" longed for freedom!! lol  I lightly inked around the bird stamp edges (stamp by Memory Box) and stamped onto a scrap of My Mind's Eye paper, cut it out and popped it on foam pads.  The papers are by My Mind's Eye and .  The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

I do hope you can join in the fun! bx

The Sugar Bowl - Challenge 51

I couldn't say how long it's been since I got organised to enter a challenge - but here's my first one for 2011!  This is Kiki's sketch at The Sugar Bowl.

I've coloured "No 1 fan" (so good to see some guys in the last collection) with my Prisma's, used some My Mind's Eye papers, a Hero Arts sentiment and a few brads (unknown) to finish...guy's cards need to be quite fuss free but i think "dude" and this paper say it all!! bx

Crafty Creations - New Beginnings!

The new challenge at Crafty Creations is New Beginnings - and i am soooooooo late with my entry!  I certainly hope that this is NOT my new beginnings!!

Pink Gem Designs is our fab sponsor for this challenge but as I was so behind I had a lil rummage through my huge box of uninked rubber and found this lil LOTV cutie which I thought would fit this challenge perfectly! 

I've coloured her with my Prisma pencils, used some yummy Basic Grey papers and pearls and a Martha Stewart ribbon (tied to represent her school tie), the sentiment is by Woodware!

Oh it's good to back in the saddle after so long...i hope you get the chance to join in the fun! bx
