witches sticks

Hello, today at Cupcake Craft Challenges we have a theme of witches and/or pumpkins.

Here is my piece.

Papers: Pebbles Inc ~ Tricks and Treats.

Image: Make It Crafty ~ Witchy Wanda. I embossed her in white onto a black tag. I've combined this with My Mind's Eye
stamps and added some little peel off spiders.

I made the flowers with the Sizzix ~ Tim Holtz Poinsettia die and added a Prima flower to the centre.

I am entering this in at the following challenges:

witch's brew

Hello there! It's been a while since I've been here. Just been very busy with work and stuff! This week at Crafts 4 Eternity we have a halloween theme, so join us with your spooky projects!

Here is my piece:

I just dug into my box of halloween papers for this, so have used a mixture of Basic Grey, October Afternoon and Moxxie.

Love these papers.

Image: Kraftin' Kimmie ~ Witchypoo. I coloured her with copics and added some stickles.

Hello and happy Friday! Another week rolls by. Today it is a new challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity where we have a theme of bugs.

With this in mind, I was packing up from a project made way back when (was running out of room on my craft desk) and saw this paper and thought it would be good to use for this challenge.

It wasn't until I'd finished that I suddenly thought, are these waspy type creatures actually bugs? Or are bugs really, crawl along the ground type creatures? You know, I did spend quite some time thinking about this ... lol. Eventually, I decided that any little creature that bugs me is a bug and these sure do, so they fit the bill.

Papers: Teresa Collins ~ Everyday Moments. These are a really beautiful luxuriously thick cardstock, love them.

The sentiment is also cut from the card and I added some Prima bloomers and a lacey flower. 

Thank you for looking.

warm memories

Hello! Happy Friday! So happy to be here after a yukky week trying to work through a head cold. It is soooo exhausting when it drags on so long. Not much crafty time going on as I've been so exhausted by the time I got home from work at night. Anyway, hopefully now I am over the worst in time to enjoy the weekend!

Today we have a fabby new challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity and that is lots of leaves. So we want to see lots of leaves on your creations.

For my project I made a box and filled it with some little autumn themed note cards.

Only, because of my yukky week, I have only so far made two notecards and unfortunately haven't had any daylight hours to take a photo of them, so I will have to come back and post them later. But they have more leaves on them!

So, going back to my box, I am really into making boxes right now. For the papers I have used Imaginisce ~ Apple Cider.

Also used my absolutely most favourite die, Magnolia ~ Magnolia tree. Added some little incy wincy flowers.

Thank you for looking and I'll be back later with my notecards!

Subject: girls together

Good evening! I'm so late getting my blog post written up for this week's challenge at Cupcake Craft ChallengesTruth is, I came down with a stonking head cold yesterday evening and woke up with it full blown today. My head doesn't feel like it belongs to me and my concentration levels are zero! 

So, on with the challenge where we have a think pink theme! Include as much or as little as you like.

Well when I was scrabbling around, trying to think what to do, I had a bit of a bingo moment when I came across these Teresa Collins ~ Freestyle bracket album covers.

I dug out the matching paper and cut some words from it.

Added an extra clock.

Image: Dina Wakley ~ Lonely Girl. I'm loving these stamps.

Thank you for looking!
