Monster Mash for Halloween~

Hello Girls, And Happy Halloween for those who celebrate.
I don't really like Halloween or Bonfire night, but I still have a stash of sweets for the hoard of witches that will show up tonight after tea.
My Son has carved my Pumpkin (as always) and it is especially good this year, he is soooo clever at doing it, it looks really great.

I hope you like my "Boy" card today. I don't make many boy cards, but as I have a Christmas Fair in November I know I will get asked for some, so in between making Christmas Cards I am also making the odd "boy" one too.

Not sure where this digi image is from, had it a while now and not used it.
Papers are Basic Grey "Out of Print", sentiment is Craftwrok Cards and I have coloured image with Pro-Markers. All finished with some little buttons from my stash and bakers twine.

Let it Snow.....NOT!!

Hiya Girls.

I don't mean this title, HONEST!!
It's just 'cos that's what my Sentiment says!! Lol

I bought some Kraft card in Port Sunlight, and I have been "Krafting" mad....Almost used the 6 A4 sheets in one go! Love it!
I think it works so well with Christmas cards, especially if you are using "Red", so once again I have used mine with a Crimbo card.

All other papers used are just leftovers, image and Sentiment are LOTV which I have jazzed up abit with Stickles. The lovely flower is Craftwork Cards, Metal Charm and Corner are Hobbyhouse, I have used some lovely green & red Bakers Twine and the little button is from my stash.

Baby Fairy Flora~

Hi Girls,
WOW I have had a fab morning watching the rugby, and as a Neutral I did not really mind who won. As It happened France gave NZ a good run for their money, but I was very pleased for NZ.
Even if you are not a Rugby fan, you must watch it just for the Hakka....Unbelievable and the most fantastic thing to see!!

I have finished my ironing and have yet to go food shopping, but I have had a little time this morning to finish off my card I started yesterday before watching Strictly and X Factor. Unfortunately X is turning into a Battle Field between the Ego of the Judges, so hubby and I are fed up with it already.
Louis keeps giving Sammi the wrong (old fashioned) song, but she should say NO!

Gary (who I USED to just love) Is turning into my Grandad!! What is he like, lighten up a bit Gary! On a positive note, if you want proper entertainment go over to the BBC and tune into Strictly It is great this year. As always Russel was great, so was little Chelsee, but everyone (bar Nancy) is really doing well, it's good fun!

Right no more waffle:
I have used my new Mo image on this latest card. Oh I just think she is so sweet "Baby Fairy Flora". I have seen this image as a digi, but when I was away at Port Sunlight and saw her in a stamp I just had to have her.
I have used some Memory Box papers, Hobbyhouse flowers and bits n'bobs from my stash.
I have followed this fab sketch from Sketch Saturday and have used Pro-Markers to colour the image.

Sweet Stampin DT--Halloween

Hi Girls,
It's Saturday again, so time for another challenge over at Sweet Stampin.
This week the theme is "Halloween".

I have used our Sponsor Bugaboo's gorgeous "Spooky" image.
The papers are from my stash and I have had them ages, so don't know what make they are. The image is coloured with Pro-Markers. The web and Spider are an old stamp I used to use with the children at Playgroup I have added some stardust stickles to give the web a bit of a shine.

The Moon & Me~

Hi Girls,
Hope I find you all well.

I had a little craft time this afternoon, as I knew it would be all TV tonight...What with Strictly, Merlin and X Factor, Saturday Evening's are turning into Feet up with Choccie time!!

This afternoon I managed to make a couple of Christmas cards to add to my stash. I am doing quite well and have 35 now.....Not sure that's anywhere near enough tho'!!
At least if I can make a few each week then I should be ok.

I have used this "Gorgeous" LOTV image. I have had her for over a month now, and when I saw Vicky had used her the other day I thought she looked so gorgeous that I just had to ink her up....I love her, she's so sweet just sitting there on the Moon!

The Lovely Holly paper is Basic Grey "Fruitcake" and is one of my favorite Christmas papers this year.
I have just bought these new Sizzix Star die's and I am really pleased with them, think they will be great to use on Boy/Men cards.
The image is coloured with a mix of Pro-Markers and Marvey Markers. All finished with a few Hobbyhouse pearls, a couple of buttons from my stash, stickles and a LOTV sentiment.

One of Mo's Girls~

Hello Girls,

And a big hello to all my new followers, it's lovely to have you on board and I hope you like the things you see!

Well Hubby is out on ANOTHER "Jolly Boys (Beer) Outing"....So I have had a nice crafty day. Had a few jobs to do in the morning, but have had a play this evening.

I have been making all sorts of Christmas Items lately and tonight's "Bag" is no exception. I have chosen one of my new Toppers from "Mo".....Isn't she delightful? I just love her, I think she is blowing bubbles, and just look at those huge wings.
Gorgeous Image.

Sweet Stampin DT card~ Row your Boat!

Hello Girls,

A scheduled post from me today, this card is for our Challenge over at Sweet Stampin, and that's "In Stitches".
Don't think you can see my stitching very clearly unless you zoom in, but I have done two lines of stitching around the pink border.

I will be at Port Sunlight in Liverpool when this post goes live. I will be at the "Stamping Show". It's a lovely place to go and It has lots of crafting goodies, I have taken my list and some dosh to spend!!
Hubby said "Did you not just go Craft shopping to Harrogate last month"!!
To which I replied "That was a month ago, durr"!! Lol

This latest card is made using Basic Grey "out of print" papers, a craftwork cards sentiment, a Bildmalarna image, coloured with Pro-Markers. I have made the little button by cutting 7 small circles on my cricut machine, sticking them together in a stack and punching two holes with my cropadile, I have then added some Hobbyhouse ribbon.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafters Companion--Pink & Green

Basic Grey--Rhymes (Row, Row, Row your Boat!)

I have used some g.d.c. and craftwork cards paper, a MS heart punch and Magnolia Swirl, the sentiment is pc generated, the pearls and flowers are Hobbyhouse.

Spider Alert, look away if scared!!

Hi Girls, Thought you might like to see the picture of the "Spider" that has made it's home right outside my kitchen door!! So Sorry if anyone has "Arachnophobia", but he is just fantastic isn't he? the web is incredible and goes between two planter tubs we have on the patio. He has been there for ages, just hope he is ok in this strange weather we are having, one minute sunny the next (like today) raining all day!!
