25th Club

Yes, yes late again .... I know tee hee but I couldn't find any inspiration this month for Christmas cards and then I found these reindeer (Christmas decorations bought in Tesco last December) lying on my desk and thought ah I'll use them.

They have been triple embossed in gold so they have a raised smooth finish ooooooo. Thought they would go well with the midnight blue paper I found which was purchased at the local Paper Mill in the Galleria. Found loads of the stuff so will have to use it up if I want to buy more papers.

Fiskarettes Competition

Over on the Fiskarettes blog their monthly competition is to design a project and have an egg somewhere on it secret or obvious. Well I have just used the egg shape (I think the posh word for it is an ellipse? :) )

The closing date is Thursday 9th April so why not give it a go. They have prizes. :)

Chick chick chick chick chicken

This is my card for this week's DCM Dare:-

I would like this week to see cards with a chick, a bunny or both!

Well I have done a chicken inspired by Jane Chapman, children's illustrator of "What If?" a book I have been looking at with children in my class this week.

Why she is standing by a giant flower - I don't know just had it lying around my desk. Thought they went well together.

Thoughtful Kat

Well yesterday didn't quite go according to plan. Kat and I were meant to go to the V & A Museum to an exhibition on Hats by Stephen Jones. But I was really ill (food poisoning I think) and unable to go. Luckily for me one of Kat's friends was able to step into my shoes and go with her.

I was really looking forward to going to the exhibition and felt I had let Kat down. :(
After a couple of hours I felt much better and was awake when she returned from her evening out. She said it was a good exhibition and that I would have loved it too. The shop was full of lots of goodies and Kat would have spent more only I hadn't gone with my credit card lol. Anyway with the money she had she bought me these lovely handmade papers as a get well present. I thought the gesture really sweet and that is why I thought I would share this with you all.

Q11 0f 52

"What 5 movies inspire you creatively."
mmmmmmmmmmm I had to think about this one. Well I have had to think about them all really haha.

I have come up with Devdas, Amelie and Alice in Wonderland. All for different reasons and I know before you say anything, there is only three but I couldn't think of any more films that fitted the brief. I love lots of varied films but not ones that inspire me to create.

March Bubbly Calendar

Well here is my calendar page for March. Sorry it is a little late in the month to show but Kat borrowed the camera to take on holiday and she has only just come back.

If you would like to see the whole calendar and maybe leave a contribution to our chosen charity, Action for ME, then visit the Bubbly Crafty Calendar Blog here. I'm going to attempt to do the project featured on the March page later in the month.

Ta for looking. x

Altered Tin Challenge

Over on the Bubbly Scrumptious blog as well as tons of inspiration they are have a monthly challenge (sometimes with prizes - yippee). Well this month's challenge is to alter a tin.

I found this round tin which my son gave me - it had a bendy monkey in it originally haha - and thought that I would alter it very simply.

So I covered it in Cosmo Cricket Mr Campy paper and painted a grungeboard arrow with an acrylic dabber and stuck it to the top of the tin. I then added the word recycle and stuck that on the arrow too.

I intend to put inchies inside until they are ready to get stuck into my new book I made for them which I will blog another time.

Thanks for looking at my blog please leave a comment. Ta x

Well I have been very slow to do these two questions. Number 8 "What was the last thing that made me laugh?" and Number 9 "What was the last brave thing I did?" Not slow because I didn't know how to answer the questions but slow because I'm a slow crafter. tee hee.

Well here they are just before Number 10 comes out over the weekend.

Thanks for taking a looksee. :)

DCM Circular

Just got in in time to put this on my blog before the next dare. tee hee.

A card for a friend using Bo Bunny and Sweetdreams papers, some brads, doodling and inking.
Hello all my friends in Blogland!

Look what I bought on Saturday from Paperchase. Couldn't resist their cheeky faces and my Emily Falconbridge Art Journal Journey cards that I made last year fit perfectly inside.
