Time Out #143

Hi All

Time for our 'Inspired by Words' challenge-see the words below and remember you can use any or all of these words to inspire you.

Here is what I made:

Using our sponsor Winnie and Walter 'Cheers' Cutaway-I water coloured this in the rainbow colours and cut it out a number of times to give more dimension. I stamped the champagne bottle and glasses on the card first and then added my cheers!

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Arlene. I love the range of cards she makes and you should really pop on over to her blog here and you will see what a delight her cards are. We are thrilled to have you with us Arlene!

You have until September 11th 5pm BST to join us-hope you do!

Magic Moments!

Hi All

Popping in with a card I made for AAA Card Challenge-Along the Edge-optional twist-inspired by a song. I went for the twist again, using 'Magic Moments' by Perry Como.

Here is my card:

My city skylines are dies from my crafty buddy Joyce-she knows I love these and got these along with a gorgeous card from her a few weeks ago.

As soon as I saw the AAA challenge I knew these would be perfect for this.

That is me for today-enjoy!

Snow is Falling!

Hi All

First off I apologise I haven't visited your blogs for a while. I love to support you all but my health has taken a turn for the worse and I am finding it all a bit tough. But I assure you once I am backing and running you will get lots of love from me.

However on the bright side of life....and we always try to look there-I made a couple of cards today-my fav, one layer, 'stamp and go' cards!

Here is one I made 'just for fun'-the other is a DT card!

I used this fab and funky stamp set Snow is Falling from Visible Images in my fav colours for Christmas.

This was inspired by these challenges:

AAA Card Challenge-I used the twist-we all know the song 'snow is falling'
CASology-no snow without water!

Have a good day xx

Hi All

It is our photo challenge at Inkspirational and here is what I made:

And our photo:

I was inspired by the black and white patterns and picked out a few colours to inspire me.

These dies are from STAMPlorations and the sentiment is from Catherine Pooler.
The patterned paper was a pressie from the creative and lovely Bobby-I mentioned on her blog I loved the paper she had used and the next thing I get a package of different patterned papers-aren't our crafty friends special! Thank you Bobby.

Now pop on over to Inkspirational and you will see a wonderful set of cards from our DT-then time for you to join in!

Have a fun day xx

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!
