Morning All.
Just a quick post from me today to announce the launch of a new challenge over at the CRAFT blog. This week we would like to see your shaped cards, no square or rectangular bases allowed. Once again we have 3 lovely sponsors each offering a great prize, so why not hope over to the main blog and heck them out.
I must admit, this is not one of my favourite challenges, but I hope my little elle will be OK.
Thanks for looking and I'll be back soon with another creation.

Skater Boy

Afternoon All.
Well what a scorcher of a day. Just thought I'd pop by and share my DT card for the new challenge at Here Come The Boys with you all, before I head off out to a BBQ with friends. The challenge this time round is a brilliant sketch, designed by our very own Woo - an incredibly talented lady.
I have used a Hanglar image coloured with ProMarkers on my creation. All the papers are from a Nitwit collection, which means they all co-ordinate really well.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges;
Craft Your Days Away - anything goes
Send A Smile For Kids - anything goes for kids
Crafting For All Seasons - use bright colours
Paper Pretties - square cards
Thanks for looking, and I'll see you all again soon

Box Time

Hello Again.
It's thursday again, so that means it's time for a new challenge over at the CRAFT challenge blog, and this week we would like you to make some boxes. As usual there are plenty of prizes up for grabs from our fabulous sponsors; Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More, Crimson Cloud, Scrapper's Delights and LEJ Designs.
I have made a simple wedge shape box for my DT project, that has been embossed using a Cuttlebug folder. I have then stamped and coloured the image before cutting it out and adhering it to my box. The DT team have done lots of different styles of boxes, so hop on over if you need some inspiration.

Fresh Brewed - rubber stamps only - no digis

Ooooh Ethel

Morning All.
Well, I'm a very naughty girl, because I completely forgot to blog this yesterday, when the new challenge at CRAFT started - sorry Jo x, but, here it is, hopefully better late than never. The challenge this time is to add a charm to your creation, which suits me, as I have a bit of an obsession about them, and I sell hundreds of different ones in my shop Ewe 2 Can Craft.
There are 3 fantastic prizes up for grabs this week from or sponsors - DigiDarla, Just Tracy and Bugaboo Stamps.
I have used an Ethel stamp on my card, coloured with my ProMarkers. These images always bring a smile to my face and the sentiments always make me chuckle.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges;
Divas By Design - for a woman
Fab 'n' Funky - pearls/rhinestones
Creative Card Crew - on the beach/under the sea
Ladybug Crafts Ink - summer fun

Boys and Their Toys

Morning All.
Well it's Sunday again, and I thought I'd better do my post early, before I go and collect my eldest from a week long Scout camp - guess I'll send the rest of the week washing clothes and trying to fumigate a child, but I hope he's had a fab time. His little brother has missed him big time, even though he won't admit it - Mum is just not that good at football or shooting things on the Wii.
Today also see'e the start of a very appropriate new challenge at Here Come The Boys. We would like to see your male orientated creations on the theme of 'Boys and Their Toys'. I love this image by Mo Manning, as it suits so many of my childrens friends, so couldn't resist using it here. I hope you will come on over and join in the fun as the other DT cards are amazing - as always.
I would like to enter my creation in the following challenges;
Alphabet challenge - M men only
Bronte and Bella's challenge - anything goes with a Mo image
Crafty Ribbons - spots and dots
Party Time Tuesday - anything goes
Thanks for looking, and hopefully I'll be back soon.

Sketch Time

Afternoon All.
Sorry once again for the late posting, but I've been re-landscaping my front garden with the help of a husband and builder friend, and today we have moved 4 tonnes of stone, so now I'm a bit cream crackered, but am sure it will be well worth it when we've finished.
Todays new challenge at CRAFT, is a nice and easy sketch, just what the Doctor ordered. Up for grabs this week are 3 fab prizes from our sponsors; The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs, My Heart Pieces and Trimgym's Digital Stamps and Images.
I would like to enter my creation in the following challenges;
Digistamps 4 Joy - polka dots and stripes
I Love ProMarkers - spots and stripes
Digital Tuesday - monochromatic
Critter Sketch - anything goes
Paper Pretties - use 2 or more DP
Thanks for looking, and I'll see you again soon.
