A first time for me joining the Magnolia vs Stampavie challenge. I brought some Magnolia stamps having been ooogling them for ages on other peoples blogs. I treated myself to 2. They are a sheer joy to work with. I have coloured these with my sakura and Marvy's. The other items papers and embellishments are from the stash. Such a gorgeous sketch and I hope to join in more in the New Year. Off to finish the wrapping!!!!!

Hi, this week over at the cuttlebug challenge blog. there is a tutorial link on how to make a criss cross card. So they have challenged us to make one. I made this baby card. I stamped onto baby blue pearlescent card a crown stamp that came free with craft stamper. I then added some triangular borders. I ran my inked congratulations folder through the cuttlebug and placed inside the card. I made a holder from ribbon and added the sentiment boy and made a motif. I then doodled everywhere as I am a little bit addicted to it. A great idea that I will use time upon time again. Thanks cuttlebug team!

Hi, My daddy came up to see me today. I have not seen him for 6 months or so. He moved to Cornwall ten years ago.... when my mum and him seperated. I see him for a few hours every six months ,so I get emotional with it all. I love him ,but our relationship has somehow disintergrated ,due to the fact we see so little of each other nowadays. They don't get on ,so it means that we can never be together as a family, ever again. I being the sensitive type find this incredibly difficult. Never mind, I got out the glimmer mists and made these triangualer gift boxes for the treelight candleholders I brought for the kids teachers. I just sprayed the card with red and green glimmer mists and then stamped using various paperartsy stamps. I then created some matching tags and added some ribbon to co-ordinate. I am dead happy and I love making these as it takes one piece of A4 card and no gluey mess just a few folds.

Hello sorry to everyone who is bored with christmas cards, but I still have some to get done. I made this using "two scoops" papers. I got the ribbon technique from Kaths blog. http://kath-allthatglitter.blogspot.com/ I got the label templates ( which I think are similar to new nestibilities) from the following blog Mel's stampz http://melstampz.blogspot.com/2008/12/square-label-or-note-shape-templates.html An aladdins cave of tips by the way! I made the little charm and stamped a merry christmas sentiment onto the label and used a paperartsy stamp to add some interest.

Hi this week daring cardmakers theme is "This week you can make any card you like - so it can still be for Christmas, or to say Thank You or a card for any occasion you like, but I'd like you to look for your inspiration right there, in your home." I made this card inspired by the lights we put up for christmas. I know there will be an appropriate time for it's use. I used my christmas paperartsy stamps ,to stamp the lights onto photo copying paper, stuck onto card and doodled around them. I then printed the sentiment from Microsoft word and stuck it on. Great challenge and fun to do. Thanks.
