Are You Going Guisin'

Hello.

In Scotland we don't really have trick or treating - we have guising, so I thought I'd make a Scottish Hallowe'en card although I guess no one is going anywhere tonight anyway!

I've used some Vera Lane sets and paper pieced the ghost and the girls dress in some natty tartan paper.

Sweet Stampin Challenge

Morning.

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'.

This time our theme is Children's Birthdays.

I've used an old Little Miss Muffet image for my card. Wonder if she hit the target?

Brr. It's Chilly

Hello again.

Thought I'd break up the Halloween cards with this Christmas card I made to join in the sketch fun at Fezziwigs.

Found a set of free knitting papers here and thought they would be perfect for this girl with her hat and scarf.  Now if I was being picky (and let's face it I usually am) I think her hat should have been further down her head and the scarf ruther up - that's the way I'd wear mine!

What's Your Poison?

Hello again.

This isn't a Halloween card, although I have used those kind of colours! I've been playing with some of the new images at LotV and I've made this one a birthday card.  Wonder what her poison is?!

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning.

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'.

This time our theme is Hallowe'en! 

I've used Trois Fantomes from Vera Lane Studio and teamed them with a Whimsy die as I thought they would be perfect in the 3 spaces.  For the background I used some Distress Oxides.

Is it a Monster?

Hello.

For today's card I've used a Saturated Canary image.  Making these cards has been great fun as I've been using up lots of scraps of paper!  It's also challenged me not to make square cards.

Hello.

With having loads of time to spare I've been making Halloween cards.  No idea why, they're just going drawer but I have realised that I no longer have enough days before the end of the month to share them all so no time to start like the present!

Come Under The Umbrella

Hello.

Last week's challenge at Sweet Stampin' was to use old stash. Well, I must admit that since last week I've been trying to use up some old stuff and I saw this paper and thought it would be perfect to paper piece an elephant!  I sprayed the image with some Goosebumps stuff to try and make it look like it was raining, not sure you can see it though!

Hibee Birthday Part 2

Following on from Andy's card yesterday, this is the card I made for his friend - also a Hibs fan!

I found the pantone for Hibs colours and decided to do a card with football and beer.

Hibee Birthday - Part 1

Hello.

This is the birthday card I made for Andy last month.  I've used the cabbage from a Vera Lane set and a set of printable ribs I found!  

Edited after Chris' comment - cabbage and ribs is rhyming slang for Hibs!

Another Coin

Hello.

Following on from yesterday's ATC coins, I'd actually made another but it wasn't a Hallowe'en theme so I thought I'd give it it's own post.

Still using a Vera Lane Studio image, this is a Sorting Hat coin.... After I'd coloured it in I decided to try and draw some Sorting Hat features on it.  I think I've managed it.

I didn't have any cocktail sticks lying around so the wand is made from a cocktail umbrella!

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning.

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'.

This time our theme is Use Your Old Stash.  Now, how old is the paper I've used in today's creation?!  At least 10 years old? Probably more?

Saw this on Facebook, thought it was perfect for today! 


I've made an ATC.  There's a few images in this set so I thought I'd do a wee series of Cat ATC's.  This is, so far, the only one!  The images are printed but I just haven't got round to finishing starting the rest!

Crafty Birthday Girl

Hello.

A couple of weeks ago I shocked myself by sharing a card and the birthday had only been the day before, not months or years as is my usual.  Well today is even better.  The birthday is today!! However, I know that the birthday girl has received her card so it is safe to share with you now.

This was so much fun to make!

Fancy a Cuppa

Hello.

Tracey Hey brought out some new stamps recently and when I saw Teacup Treasures I couldn't resist.

This is my first card using it and it had to be the rhino first! You will note that I didn't colour the inside of the cup, there are two reasons for that 

1 - I don't like drinking out of cups with a coloured inside 
and (more importantly)
2 - the rhino might have got hurt bathing in hot tea

Surprise!

Hello.

I don't often pop up twice in one day but I wanted to get this card in to join in at Fezziwig's!

I've used Valerie in The Snow and I wanted a wee dog to go in the inside to look like he'd had enough of dashing through the snow so this wee snoozing LOTV dog was perfect.

Happy Tuesday

Hello.

This card took so long to make.  No really... I started by printing the image months ago and coloured her hat.  And then she got put to one side and she kept getting further and further down the to do pile... I even asked the lovely Wends to nag me in to finishing it.  And now I have.  Probably 8 months after I started it.

Many months ago, it was Father's Day and I never got round to showing the cards I made for the boys to send Andy.  They each told me what they wanted to say on the cards! Yeah, they all think they're funny.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning.

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'.

This time our theme is Babies - probably a bit early for this theme - we should have gone for it in December, 9 months after lockdown.....

I found a website (while looking for something else) and found this fabulous giraffe so thought it was perfect for the challenge.  You can find it Artybarb here.
