Friday Sketchers meets SWALK

First of all, I need to say a huge THANK YOU to Elaine over at 'a Technophobes Blog' for holding a candy in honour of her son Hal as I won it and I was over the moon! I was jumping up and down on my seat (which is not good, as I'm not the smallest of people!) and looking like a right loon! Big THANK YOU to Hal too, for picking me out of the many people who won.

I've been meaning to play with the stamps, papers and goodies I won for a while now but just have not had the time. Tonight however I made time. 

And here we are...
I have used my Distress Inks on this cutie which is called - S.W.A.L.K -Thinking of you! by Crafters Companion.
Bundled Sage, Stormy Sky, Wild Honey, Tea Dye, and Spun Sugar - simple huh?
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, including the leaves and the pearl spray. The pins I had in my stash.
Papers were also in the candy I won and they are by Memory Box and are called 'Frond' and are absolutely gorgeous!
I've added some ribbon and three green gems from stash.

I am entering this into the Friday Sketchers challenge which was quick and easy to do! 

Catch you all soon, I'm off to bed from some much needed shut eye!

Spesch Designer Stamps first Christmas release blog hop

O.M.Word where has the time flown to! One minute I'm at work then next in bed and then I blink and I'm back in the car on the way to work again... I'm one tired nurse at the moment. I've only just had a week off (which I spent with my family) and I'm sure I am ready for another holiday! 

Today is a spesch'al day as the team for Spesch Stamps are having a Blog Hop. Its the first time I've managed to play with the team in a loooooooooong time as I've just not been able to sit, print out and image and make them into cards.

You should have hopped here from Kimberly's blog - if you haven't and you've come from your dashboard, and you'd like to play along in the hop, take a looksie here and start from the top!

The design team have done a wonderful job of showcasing the gorgeous designs which are being released - I have to say, the image I've used is one of my favourites! To introduce her, she is called 'Xmas Elf' - isn't she fabulous! I love her coat - I'd like one just like it for Christmas!

Tracey is offering up a couple of prizes for those who comment on the Spesch Designer Stamps Blog here... So make sure you leave a comment after you've been around the team and left your comments there too!

1st Prize - 3 stamps of winners choice from the new release
2nd Prize - 2 stamps of winners choice from the new release
3rd Prize - 1 stamp of winners choice from new release

I've used papers in the new 'A Silent Night' set, and have included one of the glitter sticker borders for the snow flakes. The flowers are a mix from Wild Orchid Crafts and Ladybug and Friends. 

I am celebrating this first ever Spesch Designer Stamps release myself by offering one of you lovely crafters a chance to win a $12 Gift Certificate for Spesch Stamps. This means you'd be able to buy 4 designs from the Christmas release or 4 from the previous releases, the choice will be yours!

Just leave your name below and if you'd like to, but not necessary - give a shout out for the blog hop and get your friends involved! I'l pick a winner over the weekend (probably Saturday evening around 8pm).

Good Luck and have fun hopping!
Your next stop is the lovely Danni

Walk the Dinosaur!

                                        "Open the door, get on the floor, 

                                                  Everybody walk the dinosaur

                                                            Open the door, get on the floor

                                                                      Everybody walk the dinosaur"

For this card I've used one of the Greetings Farm Stamps from the 'My Favourite Things' and to this guy, its obvious that he loves his dinosaurs.

I have sent this card to a blogging buddies Son, who also likes Dinosaurs, however I only found that out today! 
I've used papers which were found on 'The Sweet Shoppe' site which I paid for and downloaded as I was desperately lacking papers to go with this image. 

The 'prehistoric' was also part of the Digi Download. I've coloured this cute chappie with Copics.
A simple but effective card, even if I say so myself

Thanks for popping by! 
Have a lovely week. I'm away to my parents for a week, I have a christening to go to on Sunday where I will be taking on the role of God Mummy to my gorgeous 2nd cousin (Niece really as her Daddy is more like a brother to me). I'l be back on Wednesday.

Catch you soon!
