Born to shop (or drop lol)

A card... wayhey.... even surprised myself.. I was determined to get at least one made today, would have preferred two, but... just been shopping so that took up hours needed in craft room, and got home to find out myself and daughter off out later to a hog roast, party, bands etc`... so.. a few more hours not in craft room.. !
Must rememeber to start doing the recipe bit... trouble is I never remember who the stamps are made by, let alone what papers Ive used... so maybe not such a good idea anyway lol.. I did use copics thou !!! as for the numbers? not a clue.. once again, must start paying more attention :)..
ooooh look out for some blog candy midnight tonight.. or if worse for wear... first thing tomorrow morning ... :)... catch you guys laters, as off to find something that fits.... ish... really MUST go on a diet !!! ...

All I have done for this one is to use a rollergraph, from SU, with the holly leaves wheel, hunter green ink, again SU, added some stickles and some gems... sorted..
Dont forget to pop over to Cards and Candles and see exactly what Toni has up for grabs..... also,

Merry Christmas :)

Well can you beleive it, Ive made another Christmas card.... lol.... mind you, bet I still doing the last minute dash a week before Chrimbo, with about 30 cards left to make lol.... although.... I can always hope that this year just, might, I said MIGHT, be different.. !! (somehow dont think I best hold my breath)...
Kept this one nice and simple, and Im glad I did, as I think the colours speak volumns anyway... so no need to go mad with much. Was very pleased with my colouring on this one, for a change.. and finally found a sentiment that actually fits in side my tags.!!! Had them ages, and most of my sentiment stamps are too big for them... (there has been a bit of blue air in my craft room).. Also used the crushed glass too... not sure of proper name... but it is what it says... crushed glass, so effective on the snowflake... right well thats it for this morning... off for another fix of caffine.... and best get some housework done, oooh sorry for swearing lol... then... craft room here I come.... :)... spose I should go and sit in the garden at appreciate the beautiful weather we are having here in Kent at the moment.... or will only be moaning in few weeks we had no summer lol.... Have a good day peeps... and will catch you all.... oooooh maybe not tomorrow but defo Sunday.... Im off for a craft day meeting up with a load of my good crafting friends.... Be lovely to see everyone again.... not sure how much crafting will get done thou lol xxx

Managed to sit and colour about half a dozen images yesterday, went copic mad... lol.. still not totally happy with my efforts, but think some of the latter ones were sh owing signs of improvement... will perservere.. but think I might need to go back to water colouring for a while as it a lot less stressful lol...

Two birds one Magnolia :)

So wanted to do this weeks Magnolia challenge, and also I knew Pippa was expecting me to partake in the Imagenation challenge too... so... as time was short... made up Magnolia to sketch provided, and I am happy in the knowledge I would give this to a 12 year old girly... so sent it to Pippa too. Yep I know it sposed to be annonymouse at Imagenation, but this card was made for the magnolia challenge and they need to see it LOL... Been playing with copics again, and my new nesties.. (Pam I blame you !!! ) .. I also used my new SU rollergraph wheels to make the backing sheets, buttons from Greta (thanks hun).... and ribbon from me ! lol.. Needless to say I have just been very naughty and ordered MORE copics !!!!!! ... I best start getting good at this soon or it will be lots of money wasted, and could have paid off the mortgage LOL.
Now I find I quite like Prismacolours after all.................. oh dear .... Pam... your fault AGAIN hehehe...

Flippin Christmas .......... woof

Well hello all.... feels like forever since I've made a card.. and I adore this little dog with his pressie.. more from LaPashe and the Flippin Christmasrange decoupage sheets... cannot wait to see what Jak, Toni, and Karen have done with theirs.... Due to having a visitor over the weekend, this really had to be a quickie card to get it on the blog in time, so all I done was to use a piece of glitter card , drew two freehand doggie bones , added a bit of ribbon, sentiment and backing sheet and a few peeloffs, job done.
The bonus with these are the backing sheets that come free with the deco... so quick and easy to complete a card. Well done again Jak for what I am sure will be another winner.

The past couple of weeks have certainly been MANIC... lol
Son turned up at wrong church and wrong wedding.. !!! made grand entrance at the correct one, just in nick of time, reducing his sister to tears, as it was a total surprise for her, that he and Anie were coming over from Tanzania... lots of tears but lots of happiness too.

Wedding was amazing... hope you like the piccies.... x J x
