Time Out Celebrate their 10th Birthday!


Hello my crafty friends,

Time Out is having a Birthday Bash for it's 10th Birthday!!

They kindly asked me to join them and I am honoured!

Myself and Nonni started planning this blog about 10 and a half years ago!

And since then it has grown and grown and that is due to you wonderful players, the past and present Design Teams and all our sponsors-so a thank you to all.

Sadly due to my health I had to leave about 3 years ago now and have rarely crafted over the last year-this card I made last year for a Birthday and thought it was a very 'me' card-one layer, CAS, skyline and my beloved linen embossing plate!

Time Out have some fun going on over on their blog with some super sponsors-go and check it out here and see all the amazing DT cards for inspiration.

Using Stencils!

 Hi All

Long time since I crafted but today I needed a little distraction and decided to play along with some challenges and made this using 

I was inspired by:
Time Out-easy to see the word-'tree' is what I used!
Freshly Made Sketches-used the sketch for my lay out
Just Add Ink-Timber and Twine

Goodness another card!

 Hi All

My goodness I haven't crafted in ages and then suddenly I started to stamp.

There is a lot going on in my life at the moment and I need a distraction-usually I walk but with the thunderstorms here I decided to just have a go at stamping and have enjoyed it.

This card was inspired by the photo at Less is More-think it is easy to see what inspired me when you look at the photo below!

A bit of a dark photo but as I said-thunderstorms!
And a shame the sentiment is hard to see!

Monochromatic Flowers!

 Hi There,

I have been doing a bit of stamping and today have a card inspired by a few 'monochromatic' challenges out there-

Time Out

AAA Cards

Here's my sunshine card!

I used Visible Image stamps and then used various copics to colour adding just one black gem to finish.

A Card at Last!

 Hi All

It has been a long time since I have made a card but today I was looking through my stash and found a die that would make a quick card for a male Birthday coming up.

Photo not so great but I wanted to get it done as it should be in the post!

I was helped with the inspiration from the following challenges:

Spring is in the Air!

 Hello Again!

I am here to share a card inspired by the mood board at Inkspirational-quite a lot inspired me-the colours, the leaves and the butterfly. I also just loved Carol's card here and basically CASed it!

I used platter stamps to all the colours then stamped the butterfly from Uniko and fussy cut this out.

I popped this up on a leaf stitched die and used a lovely Spring yellow as my base card.

I love how it turned out!

And here it is:

I will also enter the 'Spring' challenge at Less is More

For Dad xx

 Hi All

A card for Father's Day.

This one has taken me ages to finish-found it fiddly cutting up pieces of card stash to make my rainbows! When I thought I had, I realised I had missed one colour-indigo- of the rainbow so added in indigo enamel dots!

For Time Out-using the words 'rainbow' and 'gold'-the splash is delicta gold ink

CAS on Sunday-stripes

Have a fun day x
