They are the subjects in most of my Scrapbooking layouts. I have just started to do Mixed Media work, and I am loving it!! I have just started a craft group at our local Church centre, aptly called Saints and Scissors Club! If you can't find me, I will be in my craft room, buried under tons of stash lol!

Crafty Catz Challenge # 18th November

 Well, here I am again.  Another week has gone by.  Isn't it scary?  One week closer to Christmas  eek!!!!!

Theme for the Challenge this week is Christmas, and we are sponsored by 


**** Prize - 2 images from store ****

I have used the image called Jingle all The Way  

I used a sparkle spray (Which I wish I hadn't) and it changed the colour of the image.  It dampened it down a bit, and it is not as nice as it was, in my opinion, it was a lot brighter before that.  Never mind, it is finished, and I will move on to the next image next week (and no sparkle spray)!!!!

It's your turn now, head over to Crafty catz weekly and enter your card!!

Bye for now, I'll be back soon!!

Crafty Catz Challenge # 4th Nov

 Hello everyone, I'm here again, but I feel Mr Blogger is doing wonky thing s with my blog again.    I had done this post, but for some reason it didn't show up on my blog on the correct date.

Crafty Catz Challenge is Anything Goes with optional 3 or more layers.

I have gone back to my Magnolia stamps, which I havent used for a long time.

I think these images are brilliant for a new home card.  I layered up different papers and card, added some flowers and twizzles and a New Home sentiment. and that's it!

Why  don't you pop over to Crafty catz weekly challenge and enter your card?

I'll hopefully be back next week with another card.

Creatalicious Challenge #246 Anything goes with optional fall

 Hello again and welcome to my blog. 

Today I am showing you my Autumn card..  The challenge is optional Fall but here in the UIK we call it Autumn.  I don't usually make Autumn or Halloween cards, but I made this one for my craft class.  the all seemed to like it as it could be for a Birthday or just to say Hello1

I used distress inks on the background, then stencilled leaves all over it.  We then stamped and die-cut more leaves, colouring them the same way.  We made a wee pumpkin and stamped a border across the bottom of the card.

I hope you have a card you can enter into the challen'ge.  If you do, why don't you enter it now?

I must go now and finish some of the projects I made on my retreat.  Once I'm finished, I will put some pics on here.

Take care and see you soon! x

Creatalicious Challenges #245


Hello again, and apologies, I am late once again.

This post should have been published on 15th October, and now it is 18th.  

Time is just flying past too quickly for me!!

Anyway, here I am

The  theme at Creatalicious Challenges, is Halloween using Black or Purple

I have made a few Halloween Cards this year, so here is one which I think met the brief.

This image is from a kit by The Papeterie.  I die cut the image, and fussy cut the wee sweeties.  The paper on the background is black and purple, but it doesn't really look like that.  
I think that's all from me for now, but I'll be back again real soon.
Bye for now and take care!

Crafty Catz Challenge #14th October

It's my turn to host the challenge over at Crafty catz weekly challenge

We are sponsored by 

Visit My Online Store

Grab My Button

Prize $10 Aud gift certificate

I have picked the theme to be orange, black and purple
It's almost Halloween, so I decided to  pick Halloween  colours

The stamp I have picked is called Happy Anniversary and I think it is so much fun!!  It is not like the usual anniversary image, is it?

I coloured the image using Polychromos, and I used a die to make a frame, but the outside border went out with the card which the image is on.  This resulted in a very unusual border, but I think it is still effective.

So, it is over to you now!  Why don't you colour up an image using orange, black and purple, and enter it on the blog.  You might just win that wonderful voucher!
Bye for now, and I hope you have a good week.
