Winter is coming........

Anyone else a Game of Thrones fan?

These vials are different sizes of teeny tiny. You can get them at That Craft Place and mine are filled with watered down solutions of dylusions spray inks. The colours don't lose their depth, so they're perfect. They're sealed with glossy accents.

Love these, they're on my Game of Thrones geek shelf!

Poppy red

A gorgeous card to show you today that I made at an Indigo Blu workshop a few weeks ago. 

It's a gorgeous stamp! If you've got a flowery make this month, the challenge at A Little Bit Crafty is Flower Power- some great prizes as usual!

40? Nah........

My baby brother was 40 a week or two ago. Not sure how that happened, as I'm only 26....... 

I went for a doodled card- I know he likes them! The little house is Paperartsy.

I replaced the number with a 40, and added lots of cross hatching for shading in green, yellow and orange. I'm posting this as a bit of DT inspiration for the fab That Craft Place blog- nip over for a looksee if you get chance- mind you, be warned, if you spend much time in the online shop, you'll be a few quid lighter!!!! Lovely stuff :)

Sometimes I forget how much fun ATCs are.

Then I remember.

In my card making up frenzy over Easter, I went for the simple approach with some of the images I had stamped out.

I can't tell you how long I've had the background to the second card- it's been in my to do pile for 18 months at least!

Audrey with flowers

Oh this is a lovely stamp, and the quote is very apt for the image. This is quite a large card- 8x8, so it can take the large flower DCWV paper easily. 

Ha! Can you tell I was having a rubbish at bows day? I quite like the knot though, fits with the elegant feel.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Stamping Sensations- Anything goes
Daring cardmakers- Colour challenge
The cupboard trilogy- Flowers (ooh I won this challenge last month!)
Try it on Tuesday- Springtime- these are very Spring like colours

Hello! I've been playing around with this tag for a couple of weeks now, and it's been sat on my desk waiting for inspiration to strike......... but I think I've finished it now!

It's Dum, from the Octopode Tweedledum and tweedledee stamp, but he looked a bit lost without his twin, so I gave him a little dummy.

The background is Distress inked with a fab Ditzzie Design stamp called Honeycomb wire, available from That Craft Place heat embossed in silver. 

I'm entering this into the Simon Says Wednesday challenge- anything goes,
and also into the A Sprinkle of Imagination challenge, which is also anything goes!

Flowers for A Little Bit Crafty

Hello, first of the month again.... how did that happen? So that means another challenge at A Little Bit Crafty, yay!

A Little Bit Crafty DT Blog
The theme is Flower Power, so easy peasy!

I went for a little chipboard hanging.

All of the materials I used for this came from a little package of goodies sent to me as a challenge- I love the colour of the dusky pink card. The stamps are from Innovative Stamp Creations.
