Fab n Funky meets Totally Gorjuss Challenge

Today I've made a card shock horror!
I'm entering it into Fab 'n' Funky (anything goes) and Totally Gorjuss (must have a tree on your card - well I'm hoping that the tree paper which is the strip under the Pink raffia lace counts!)

I've used one of the new Christmas Release Lily of the Valley stamps called Wrapped in Tinsel and can be found here.

Papers are My Minds Eye and are from the Winter Wonderland collection.
Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts (except the large blue one which is from Ladybug and Friends).
The gorgeous Pink Raffia Lace and theWhimsy Ticket Stamp were from Bunny Zoe Crafts (I also bought the die for the Whimsy Ticket Stamp from here too, they showed up today and I had to have a play!!!)
Candy Cane and white/pink ribbon from stash.

That's my card in a nut shell. Thanks for stopping by.
I'm going to be hit and miss for the next two weeks as I'm on annual leave and my parents are down for a week, then I go back to my home town for a few days! So if I dont visit you between now and then, you know why!

Oooo just as a thank you for those who pop by - put your name down on the blue frog and random.org will pick a winner to win this stamp!

I will pick a winner on Friday night, and post it on Saturday so the lucky winner can play before Christmas is over!

Simply Sassy says it all!...

...this gal is definitely simply gorgeous!

Her name is Bella Bunting and I love her lots! 
I really do!
You can find her, and the rest here of the Simply Sassy girls here.

I'm joining in again with the Sugar Bowl Challenge, just because I can! I've followed the sketch, but not the colour choice - which is Black, White and one other colour. Its an optional, so I opted out!
I've used Distress Inks to colour her in (I'm just getting the hang of them now. I go through phases where I can use them and not use them) my brain switching from copics to inks goes into melt down.
I've used papers by Best Creations Inc from the Once Upon a Time collection. Glittered on one side and plain on the other. Two pink butterflies using the MS punch and some Card Candy.

Thanks for popping by...

Winner of the Challenge at The Sugar Bowl with this card!
So happy!

A Gorjuss Sugar Bowl Challenge

This fortnight at The Sugar Bowl the sketch is a real easy one!
I decided to ink up my beloved Gorjuss Girls and get them coloured (haven't used a Gorjuss Girl in AGES!! and I do love them so!). 

I've kept this card really simple, I've used Papermania paper and butterfly from the Henbury Lane Collection. Ribbon and lace from my stash and Copics to colour my images with!

Pretty simple huh?
The second Gorjuss Girl stands inside my card with the greeting!
On offer is an amazing 6 winter themed stamps and a gorgeous set of Spellbinders Snowflake Pendant Dies!

I'm working this weekend, so no blogging for me! I'l catch you all soon!

Spesch Stamps New Release Blog Hop!

Hi everyone.
Sorry for not being around in blog land of late - I'm trying to catch up on much needed sleep and chill time, but none of that involves card making - I'm sure I'm doing something wrong!

Anyways - this evening (10pm, which is now approx 9am in Australia) I want to show you a card of the many being shown in the Spesch Designer Stamps New Blog Hop. You should have arrived to me from Maria. If you didn't check out the Spesch Designer Stamps Blog where we are kicking this hop off from!

This card was mega easy to do, and it was done like this for quickness, but also, no fuss sometimes makes the cards better! I didnt think this stamp needed much, just a splash of colour and some glamour dust!

He is 'Surfing Santa'... I think he rocks! 
The image was printed directly onto card stock with the wording up top and bottom. Coloured with Copics and a small dusting of Glamour dust for effect on those awesome crashing waves!

Thanks for popping by - check out Kimberly who is next on the hop!
