Simon Says meets Stamp with Fun

Its been a crappy few months for me, made worse with having to face seeing in the New Year waiting for a scan on my Ovaries to see if I have a Cyst or something Nasty going on in that area!
To take my mind off this, I have attempted to finish these cards which I coloured images for the other night!
For all of the cards I've used My Minds Eye - Wonderland Winter 12x12 scrapbook papers

Embossed behind every image by masking and stamping the WoJ Winter Swirls and using Clear Embossing powder.

Card/Ribbons/Charms from Stash

Second Card

Used a green pigment ink pad for this embossing

Glossy Accents added to the pressie and hair ribbon

Third Card

Clear embossed this back ground, added glossy accents to the canes and the ribbon on the pressie

Thank you for popping by. I'm hoping to get some more finished that I started a couple of weeks ago, but haven't been able to face in a while!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Stampin' for the Weekend - DT Calendar!

Sorry for being a bad blogger. My Mojo has GONE! I forced myself to colour in these new Magnolia Images from the Winter Kit the other night. My heart just was not in it, which has resulted in poor photos too!

This weeks challenge at Stampin' for the Weekend, we'd like to see a Calendar of Sorts!

I bought this K&Co calendar kit a while back and its only just been looked at again. I decorated the front as per instructions, but the inside I will finish decorating to my liking! Something to keep me occupied over the Christmas holidays!

My Page for February

This is the photo of my little daughter Poppy! she is only a few months old (it was take 5th Jan '09 so she would have been about 17-18 weeks old) and having her first taste of food - Not sure she was that keen, but I LOVE this photo!!

Stampin' for the Weekend - Week 28

This week at Stampin' for the Weekend, the Team and our Guest Designers have put me to shame! I have no card this week as I am spending my time with my Parents.

After losing my Brother in September suddenly in a car crash, it put priorities in perspective. Since this happened, I've not dedicated a lot of time to crafting and blogging which is why you've probably not been visited by me as often as I usually would. I swear someone has stolen my Mojo!

I am around, but lurking in the back drop. I occasionally visit people from my Dash, but I have been bad and neglected so many of you, for this I am so sorry.

I hope once my head is in a better place I will be back and blogging properly, but for now, I'm only concentrating on fulfilling DT Duties as I made promises, and even with these I am struggling!

Please check out the Stampin' for the Weekend challenge this week. We'd love to see some Blue and Brown Projects!

The DT Call ends Midnight tonight, so if you were thinking about it, and haven't yet submitted a card, now would be the time to do it!

Stampin' for the Weekend DT card and reminder of DT Call out!

Good Morning Everyone!
Its Friday again which means its another challenge over at Stampin' for the Weekend

This week me and the Girls would like to see a colour combo of Red, Green and Gold - This is a good  excuse to make another Christmas card!

Here is mine!

I've used this cute Sarah Kay image. The image is so sweet and was a joy to colour.

I coloured them with Copics adding some shadowing for the base

Added some Glossy Accents to the tree and some presents and also to the round Merry Christmas circles which were from a sheet of backing paper which I cut out, distressed and then glossed. I also added some Glamour Dust for the Girls cuff, collar and the trim of her coat. Papers were kindly sent to me in a swap with my lovely DT buddy Amy

This week we are being sponsored by Jill at The Hobby House.

Jill is offering a set of stamps and some fabulous silver charms (click on the links to see them and also to take a peek at the shop too)

Club Anime Sketch DT card - and a Guest Designer Call!!

I am so bad for being late with this card! I had a CT scan on Monday followed by a Night Shift and was planning on staying up to finish the card Tuesday morning when I got home from work, but as my other half had gone out and Poppy was having a sleep over at her Grand Parents house I kinda went to bed!! It was a rough night!

But here I am now, and I am so sorry for being late!

And here is my take on it, with a few extra photos for different views.

For this card I have used Christmas Tree Chick from In Style Stamps. I coloured her with Copics and added some Glamour Dust and some Glossy Accents for the baubles, canes, and the sentiment, ooo and also her little hair slides. 
I have taken this opportunity when making this card to make it a DT Card for Bearly Mine Designs too. Donna has been really busy working on her house and creating some gorgeous festive papers called - Christmas Frolics Digi Set! 

All for only £4! 

That's amazing value for 50 assorted papers and inserts! They are all Digital and can be saved to your PC. If you take a look here you will see a slide show and if you like what you see and want to buy - just send Donna an email.
This Sketch Challenge will run until Dec 26th and all who enter will be concidered for a Guest Designer Spot for Club Anime!

Good Luck!
