Take it Easel -y Challenge

I made this card, an Easel, card, for the tiddlywinks challenge. It has been so long since I have made ANY shaped card, it was great to get one finished. I have used the image from Tiddlyinks called Annabelle Puppy Love. The papers are Red, Stampin Up and Pattern Paper from a pad from Echo Park called Fine and Dandy. I'm off now, to post this on Tiddlyinks blog.

Butterfly Birthday

I was playing with this stamp set (Butterfly Basics) the other day, and was having trouble trying to get the layout right. Well, that was until I found the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches. Total life saver, as far as I am concerned. Everything just fell into place. Thank you.

What is Old, is New Again

Over at Stampin Royalty this week, there is a bit of a special challenge. It's kind of like a second chance at fixing a card you were not all that happy with at the time. Well, I can certainly say, that this card of mine below, is one that I am not too happy with. So here is is....

Firstly, here is the original challenge.

Here is the card I created for the challenge. (It was good at the time) lol. I think the more I look at it, the worse it is becoming....

And, here is my new card. I had to change the colours slightly, as Not quite Navy has been discontinued. So, I used Night of Navy instead. I just love this stamp set with the cats. They are so cute.

So, if you have a card you would like to re do. Pop over to Stampin Royalty and let us all have a look. There are some great cards over there. Full of inspiration.

Update...Coffee, Coffee, Coffee.

Well it seems that my coffee card is a winner, over at pals paper arts. Thank you all so very much.
It was an amazing sketch, and loads of fun. I'm sure I will be using this sketch for many cards to come. See you next week, hopefully.

Voila - love life

Well, here is a blast from the past. I was sorting out my older wooden stamps the other day, and I came across this little fellow. Although he is retired now, he is still pretty amazing. I'm quite sure that this card will be entered into the Freshly made sketches challenge this week, although I am cutting it a bit fine. Oh, yes. I rotated the sketch so my image would fit in properly.
This card would be perfect for an apprentice chef or someone who really loves cooking.

Coffee, coffee, coffee

I finally had some time to play in my craft room this week. I found this sketch challenge over at so I thought I would play along. I can assure you, it has been a while since I made a card for a challenge.

Picture inspiration time.

This week over at Stampin Royalty we have a picture inspiration challenge for you to try. I bet you can not guess which picture inspired my card. It's a little tricky. And, I must say, I think I nailed it.
Pop on over to stampin Royalty and have a look at what the other girls came up. They are a very talented bunch.

Argh! My blogger not working...

So, I guess it is better late than ever, as they say. I have been having a few issues with my blog lately, but, I think I have rectified the problem. I hope, I have rectified the problem. Here is the card I made for last weeks challenge at Stampin Royalty. Although the challenge is done and dusted, I thought I would add my card anyway.

I had fun with the MDS program from Stampin Up to create the image for my card. The colours are Real Red, Basic Black and Basic Grey. That is pretty much it for this one. Quite simple.
