Time Out #142

Hi All,

Time for a new challenge at Time Out and this time we are challenging you to be:


Here is what I came up with:

Our sponsors for this challenge are STAMPlorations and I have used 2 of thre great stamps to make this card-Noteworthy-2-Shery-Russ-Designs and CityGirl The-Bee's Knees

I loved this sentiment and I made this card with it in mind. I was being the 'me' I love to be when making cards:

-one layer
-just stamping
-using purple
-and I am a city girl at heart!!

Our Gust Designer for this challenge is the very creative Jenny. I adore her cards and pop over to her blog here and I am sure you will too! I am delighted Jenny is joining us for this challenge-welcome Jenny!

So how will you interpret the word 'Fashionable'. It doesn't have to be clothes....could be fashionable house items, patterns, card techniques....this is just me thinking of different ways I could have gone but I am sure you will have more! You always amaze me with your creativity and I can't wait to see what you make!

Jenny and our Design Team have some great examples-you can see them here

Take some Time Out, join us and be fashionable!

Tangerine and Aqua Snowflakes??

Hi All

Who says snowflakes can't be tangerine and aqua on our cards!

Here I used Snowflakes Serenade by Uniko to make this one layer card.

It was inspired by these challenges:

Less is More Colour Challenge-tangerine, aqua and white
AAA Card Challenges-made in minutes-no twist for me. This card took around 6 mins to make-would have been quicker but I wasn't happy until placement of orange snowflakes and aqua enamel dots pleased my eye!

Have a good day x

Time Out Challenge #141

Hi All

Time for us at Time Out to challenge you and that challenge is:


Here is what I made-my favourite way to relax! Napping is something I do a lot!!

Our Sponsor for this challenge is the amazing Newton's Nook and the winner of this challenge gets a voucher for their store! I love their store and here I have used the very sweet Newton's Nook Naptime. How adorable is that image? And don't you just want to relax there too!!

So how do you relax??? I can't wait to see how!!

I used that background stitched purple card that was a pressie from teamie Joyce. Then coloured my image with promarkers! I know not often you see me colour but had a go as this was going to a crafty friend who loves colouring!

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very talented Marieke. She is so very creative and please pop on over to her blog here and you will see! Welcome Marieke!

Our Design Team and Marieke have all made amazing cards-take a look here and then get inky!

How CAS can I go??

Hi All

How CAS can I go??

Have a look:

I saw the challenge at Less is More to use small images and had this Snowflake Serenade from Uniko on my craft desk and thought I would use the tiny snowflakes from it. This sentiment in the same set was perfect to place the snowflakes around. The hardest thing was to get the little sparkles around in the middle of the snowflakes. Added the linen embossing plate for texture and a one layer card done-perfect for sending abroad!

Have a fun day.

Hi All

I actually got to craft today and made this card:

This sentiment I have always loved as I think it sums up what we all need sometimes. I paired it with this stamp as a Lion just seemed the right image! Sentiment is from Verve and image Happy Little Stampers-both companies closed now but I still love to use their stamps.

As many of you know my Best Friend passed this year due to cancer and it is her Birthday next week and she is on my mind all the time. However it is her husband that this card is off to as I know it will be a hard week for him-his Birthday is a few days after.
I used to send Pheds (my best friend) cards to make her smile through all her tough times and now I like to send him cards every month at least to let him know I am still here for him too. As you all know a handmade card can mean all the difference. So he has another next week too for his Birthday-I sure hope they make him smile just a little!

Thanks to these 2 challenges for inspiring me to make this card:

AAA Cards-one small image and I went with the positivity twist
Just Us Girls-photo week-obviously went with the safari image and picked out the yellow in the photo

Inkspirational #192

Hi All

Time for a new challenge at Inkspirational. And this time it is our word prompt and the word is:


I found this a tough one but then saw these stamps and went with 'folding' newspaper into a party hat!

The folded paper hats are from Visible Images and the sentiment from STAMPlorations and the frames are Winnie and Walter-tilda essential cutaways

All the DT have come up with fab ideas for this-take a look here and then get inky!
