Anyway we have a new challenge over at Sweet Pea Stampers this fortnight & its my favourite this fortnight can you guess??       MONO... yep this is my fave theme I love it & most of the time when I do it I go for the greys & I've inked up another beautiful stamp by Elaine Cox & this is now my 2nd favourite Sweet Pea stamp............wow I soooooo enjoyed colouring this, she is shown as grey when you see her in the shop & boy does it suit her..............here she is.......

This is 'Mirima' & OMG she is so beautiful, you can of course buy her from Sweet Pea Stamps.
She is available singly but when you see the set of 4 you will want the whole set believe me!!!

I distressed all paper edges & tore in places & in the top right corner I added black leather lace from my stash.

If you click on this image hopefully you will see some of the sparkle. I applied a spica pen to her eyes & hair & a black spica pen to her eyelashes. I also added diamond stickles here & there.

Here she is close-up. She has of course been coloured with copics, colours are.....

Sweet Serenity

Howdie doodie peeps hows are ya 'al? I sat last night & decided to practice some more painting with distress inks & I got my sweeties out & as uusual I couldnt decide which one to do so I inked up 6 of them & went from there..........
This is the one I did first..........at least I got 6 more stamps inked up lol.....oh & my new ones got dispatched yesterday woooo hoooooo........
Anyhoooooo here is 'Serenity' by Ching-Chou Kuik.........

You can of course get this beauty from Sweet Pea Stamps.............the thing with these stamps as they suit so many different styles........you know how I love my sweet pea lol.

I have actually nee idea what style I was actually going for or what layout tbh lol.

Basically I used Prima 'Botanical' papers, Tulle, Lace that I won from the uber talented Elaine which I didnt want to use cus its just sooooo pretty but 'Serenity' deserved it, mmwah thank you Elaine sweetie. I also used some fabric from my fabric box, I also cut off a strip off the binding on the edge & stamped 'Memories' onto it. All paper got inked with white ink.

Here she is up close & personal coloured with distress inks & touched here & there with a glitter gel pen which I cant remember the name of..........ooops!!

Flowers are a mix from Crafty Emma's & my ickle hobbit doon the bottom of my garden lol. The brown card is actually from the insides of crimbo wrapping paper......recycle recycle!!!!

Well I'm off to see if there are any challenges as this I did just cus I want some Sweet playing lol.
I will be round later to catch up with the rest of you that I havnt been to this morn. The boys/men are out fishing so I'm gonna go dye my hair, throw myself in some water & scrub mesel with some of that soapy stuff.

Simply Sassy...........Simply Delicious..........

Good morning all my lovelies how are you all? I hope the weather is as glorious where you are as it is here, its bright & beautiful & just brings a smile to you face with mr sunshine beaming his happiness down..... I love the sun it always makes me happy & puts that bounce in my step.........well maybe more a limp at the mo lol.
Anyway onto my post cus there are a few piccy's today.....lol. A couple of months ago the lovey
Maria Therese asked me if I would be in the Simply Sassy spotlight..............mmmm let me think.....a nano second later.....YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS......of course thats like asking if I like choccy or cake.....oh goodness I'm drooling now mmmm cake..............
Anyway my first post had to be cancelled as I was ill & lucky enough she got someone to step in & take my place phew..... Anyway we re-scheduled & here I am but Maria is not available this week so I am the Lovely Tracy's first spotlight.
I couldn't decide which sassy to use I have nearly every one of them........but there are a lot un-inked & still in there plastic :0( I'm just not one of these that has to use them everyday til they are all inked. Anyway I decided to use 'Delicious' yayyyy another one inked up lol. My brain kinda went into overdrive for this little sassy lassy.............

Well Miss Delicious decided she needed a card in the shape of an Apron & a recipe box to go with it.

This is the card.........

This is a resin embellishment I found in my stash there were 3 in the packet I got them when I started this crafting last year......will have to try find some more they are fab.....

I made a pocket on the apron to store a recipe or whatever you like really. The card on the front of the pocket I found as a freebie on google & just added my own writing in my art package.
Miss Delicious has been coloured with Copics.

This is of course the recipe box which will look fab on my bench when I've re-decorated the kitchen, which is why its in these colours as well. The flower I made myself & added a button to the middle.

Another resin bellie for the top of the box.

Got to finish making all my recipe cards there are just 2 in there for now lol.

The card is the same as whats on the card & I rubbed out some of the lines to type in Recipes & of course Miss Delicious wanted to be on the box as well. You can of course get Miss Delicious from Funky Kits who I have to say has fab service & fast delivery for those who have never shopped there.
Right I'm away now to catch up with some more blog hopping.
I've also started knitting ready for my grandchild, I'm starting with bootees first, well I'm not a knitter so start small lol.
Thanks for stopping by & huge thanks to you for all the comments you leave me they really cheer me up.
Thank you to Maria & Tracy for putting me in the spotlight.
Huge hugs to you all xoxoxoxox

Crafts & Me DT Card...........Forever Rose

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Well the winds have finally died down now & mr sunshine has popped out to say hello............hello (waving) lol.
Today I am here to show you a card, I'm running late so I'm sorry about that :0(
Now I know I'm on the Rockin' Rubbah team but I decided to try work through my growing pile of coloured images in my box & this image is the very first digi I brought from Crafts & Me Store, I was sooooo excited that Teresa was releasing digi's.........my hubby was at fishing & I phoned him squealing down the phone in excitement...........poor bugga its no wonder his hearing is going a little lol.
Anyway now dont laugh but this started as a CAS card, however I saw all my lovely flowers drooping their heads cus they were sad so I just had to use a couple.........just a few!!!!
Here is 'Forever Rose' by no other than Hannah Lynn........love this artist!!!

She is coloured with Copics but as she was coloured in a while ago I cant remember the colours sorry.
Now Wild Orchid has a challenge of embossing 3 layers so thats what started this card.

I have dry embossed 2 layers & heat embossed the image with UTEE

I have used A4 light sage card & a dark sage green card & IRL it has a beautiful shimmer to it.

All of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts Store & I've sprayed them all with 'Pearl' glimmer mist.
The leaves I cut out using Marainne dies on the light sage card.

Why not pop along to the Crafts & Me Store blog to see inspiration every day & see latest updates.
Well thats about it from me I better go carry on making Beef Goulash soup......mmmm it keeps my lot happy they have nagged me for it for 2 days bless them lol.
Well I will be round soon to do some blog hopping. Until then thank you sooooo much for stopping by it means a lot to me as you all know. Huge huggles to you all.
