Crafty Cardmakers #49, Spots & Stripes

Hi everyone, are you all enjoying the lovely sunshine? It's just so  glorious, although very uncomfortable to work in. Won't moan though, as I'd had enough of the horrid weather we were having.

We have another challenge for you over at Crafty Cardmakers we would like to see your spots and stripes.

As it was my turn this week to choose a theme I decided to go with something that I'm sure we all have in our stash. Something spotty and stripey. Be it papers, an image, embossing folders etc. For my card I made a base using Martha Stewart Cherish PATP. I used a gorgeous Sassy image and coloured her in with Promarkers and Derwent pencils, blended with Sansador. The papers I used were a freebie from a mag. I cut out the image using Spellbinders Labels 20 & added some eyelets and ribbon. I added some flowers made from an x-cut puch and added some Craftwork Card Candy, a charm, some gems and Martha Stewart butterfly.

We have a really fab prize up for grabs,  a £10 gift voucher for One Stop Card Crafts

We would love you to join us, so have a good old rummage in your stash and get out your spots and stripes.  If you need some inspiration, my very talented teamies have made some wonderful creations. So head over to Crafty Cardmakers and have little look. :o)

I'm going to enter this into Truly Scrumptious who have a fab sketch and Totally Papercrafts whose theme is Spots & Stripes.

Hope you all have a great afternoon, will catch you all later.

Hi all, hope you are all ok. Don't know about everyone else but I've had a right job trying to add a photo. Been at it for over an hour. :o( I ended up changing to old editor to do it, then back to updated editor to write this. I got this advise from a few of my lovely blog buddies last time Mr Blogger was having a few problems.

Crafty Cardmakers- Alter a food container

I have candy HERE

Hi folks, my second post today. How are you all? really good I hope. Well another new week ahead, wonder if Mr. sunshine might put in an appearence? Fingers crossed. :o)

I had a really fab time yeterday at the Stampmagic show at Doncaster. I was demo-ing at Little Claire's and just loved it. I met some really lovely crafters and bloggers.  Before I knew it, it was time to clear away, it's true what they say, time really flies when you're having fun. 

Anyhoo! we have a really fab challenge for you over at Crafty Cardmakers. We want you to alter a food container.

For my altered food container I decided to make use of a cheese triangle box. I thought it would make lovely storage for my pins. After taking off all of the original design, I coloured around the the edge of the lid using a Promarker. I punched some copier paper using a Martha Stewart punch and pleated it around the side, then added a strip of contrasting paper over the top. I then layered up a couple of circle nesties using foam tape and stuck them onto the lid. Added an Humphrey's corner image, which I coloured with Promarkers. Then I added some letter tiles and Martha Stewart flowers and butterflies. Some card candy and gems to finish.

We would love for you to join us, so get out all those containers from the recycle bin and join us. I'm sure you'll have a fab time creating something useful out of rubbish.  Whilst you're over at Crafty Cardmakers, check out my teamies amazing creations, you'll love 'em.

Hope you all enjoy the rest of the evening.


My 20K Candy

I can't believe I have had over 20,000 pageviews on my blog. I remember when my very lovely friend  Lisa encouraged me to start a blog back in October last year, thinking that I would be 'talking' to myself.

Since then I have found the most amazing friends, right here in blogland.

So, to celebrate, I have some candy on offer for you all. You don't have to be a follower to enter, but I would love it if you decided to join my very lovely followers. All you need to do is leave a comment on this post and I will get Bradley ( my little Grandson) to draw a name out of the 'hat on the 4th July'. If you would like to put a piccy on your blog that would great too.

Collection now closed.
Winner anounced later

Busy Day

Good evening folks. I want to say a really big Thank You to you  all  for the very lovely comments you have left me. It really does mean a lot. You are all so caring and thoughtful.

I've kept myself really busy today and it has helped. Me & hubby cut down the privet this morning, it took a while as we had really neglected it. Been busy in the house this afternoon, cleaning, washing and stuff. Then been to Meadowhall this evening with my daughter Sam, to get Kyle (my son) some pressies, as it's his birthday on Friday.

I made this to enter into Pollycraft Monday Challenge  who's theme is, be my teddy bear.

Off to catch up before I go to bed.
