This week at Sweet Stampin' we have a great Challenge for you...."Cute & Cuddly", Easy right?
Our Sponsors this week are Craft Mojo, so why not head on over and have a go!
I hope you like my card for our Challenge this week.
I honestly can't think of anything more "Cute & Cuddly" than a Teddy Image by LOTV, and in this case Four teddies! so very cute. (well I think so anyway!)
I wanted to keep it quite C&S, so stamped the teddy bears and cut them out with a Tonic scalloped circle die. The four rounded corner square's in the Anna Marie Dotty cardstock are cut with a Heartfelt Creations die, these are really good and were bought for Scrapbooking, but they are still perfect for cardmaking. I have coloured the images with Copic's, and added a few Hobby House Pearls in lilac. The Sentiment is also from a LOTV set.

Thanks for looking. Debbiex

Welcome to the First Challenge for 2015 (for me anyway) at Sweet Stampin'.
This week it's "Girly, but NO Pink".....So nice and easy.
Our Sponsors this week are "All Dressed up". Good Luck.
Don't forget we are a Stamping Challenge, so some stamping somewhere on the project please.
I have taken today's photo on my New Camera (Lovely Hubby bought me for my Birthday,) not sure it will make a photographer of me, but my photo's cannot be as bad as the ones I used to take, can they? Saying that....this is a bit shadowy and not exactly right! Oh well..
I have the most amazing Standard Daylight Lamp for my Craft Room, (another fantastic pressy off Hubby, he does spoil me rotten!) It's fantastic, makes taking pictures and making cards at night so much better, my eyesight is getting worse and this helps alot.
For my card I have used a Topper I bought a while ago, not sure exactly who makes it, but it could be a Hobby House sheet, whoever made it, I think it's gorgeous.
I added some stickles to the cycle umbrella, and a Whimsy Sentiment Stamp from the Friendship collection. All the papers are from my stash, I have added a few pearls and a spot of mock stitching.

I would like to wish you all a safe and Happy New Year. I hope 2015 holds great things for you.
I have a good feeling this coming year is going to be a good one (like last year), so I hope it is for you all too.
I have a 30th Wedding Anniversary to look forward to on January 12th, and then a holiday to Amsterdam to celebrate it, cannot wait.
Speak to you all again in 2015!

Just a quick post to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for 2015, may it be as good a year as 2014 (well for me anyway).
My thoughts are with everyone for who Christmas is not a good time of year, we will be thinking about you.
Best Wishes Debbiex

I feel awful about neglecting my blog this past two months. Not only have I been away for a nice Winter Break, but November and December I am sooooo busy with Christmas Fairs I haven't got 5 minutes to spare (I am making lots of lovely money for more Crafty Stash tho'!)
Hope your festive preparations are going ok. It's really crept up on me. I have done 90% of my Present shopping (just waiting for a couple of internet buys to come) I have bought some goodies to pop in the Christmas cupboard, nuts, choccies, cheese etc things that have a January 2015 date on them. I like to get everything I can so that nearer the time it's only fresh stuff left to get.
Anyway onto today's card for Sweet Stampin' and it's "Oh Christmas Tree" so a belter for the Festive Season, go on have a go, our sponsors this week are "My Creative Classroom, On Line Class" wow would love that prize....
Here is my card for today.
I have used some do crafts papers from a couple of years ago and a Topper from LOTV, the sentiment is a stamp I got free at Little Claire's.
Getting myself into gear and shopping for pressies, I have usually done it by now, but not this year!

Hope you are all in the Festive Mood, I am, especially with it being my Birthday on the big day too!
I am still here even tho' I have not been around much (hoping to change that after Christmas).
I have been really busy with all my Craft Fairs. Last year I did about 6 Fairs in November/December, this year I did 5 in one week! So have had lots and lots to do.
Thought I would share just a few projects with you. Unfortunately by the time I had thought about photographing my items I had sold most of them!!
I have been doing really well at the Fairs and have had a few commission orders from the Sales too.
All the items above are Mdf, from Rob the MDF Man, You can catch Rob at most of the craft Shows that are on through the year around the Country. Unfortunately he does not do mail order at this time.
Well that's it for now, more mdf to alter I think!

Hope you are well this cold November Day.
I am a tad giddy, as tomorrow I am off to Blackpool to see the group of boys who entertained me in Benidorm three weeks ago....Take That Benidorm Tribute Band. Wow these boys are SUPERB and full of fun, cannot wait to see 'em. Here is a photo for you to see...
So onto Sweet Stampin's Challenge for today. It's a "Cool" one...."Let it Snow"!
Our sponsors this week are Quixotic Paperie. Hope you will call over and join in the fun.
I have used this sweet little Christmas Stamp by Stampendous Called "Balance Act". It's no secret that I adore Mice and Rats, so this little image was a great buy, I love it.
The papers are Graphic 45, not sure what make the sentiment stamp is. I finished the baubles (not that you can see it) with Glossy Accents, looks great IRL.
