Teddy Bo Tuesday

It's still buttons and bows over at The Teddy Bo Challenge this week and although I haven't used any bows there is some ribbon hiding amongst the polka dots :c)
Bea has been shopping and had a spray tan lol! I've used caramel and cocoa for her today as she needed a bit of colour against that yellow

You really need to hop over to the store to see what those pair have been up to this week and maybe spend a penny or 2 LOL!
paper players - sketch
my partner in crafting crime - at least 3 buttons
craft your passion - grin & bear it

Less is more

I love this bunny that I got from Crafty Emmas Store and knew he was perfect for this weeks sketch over at Less is More - this is the first week I've had chance to enter this challenge although I have been following it. Papers are by JLJ designs and sentiment is personal impressions.
Here's the whole card:
Little Claire - pink & green
Totally Gorjuss - spring has sprung
Card makin Mamas - animals
Fairy Tale - pink & green

For Mum

It's collab week at OSAAT which means we all get to use the new stuff for April that you can get for free with a spendy of $10 (bargain!) I was given papers from JLJ Designs to play with this week. I've only used 3 out of the 8 in the set on my card here and had fun making the flowers although not so much fun getting them to stay put on the card :c)
I didn't use a snazzy die but followed the tutorial here from Laura which was written specially for me. Being metrically challenged I have an imperial score pal but had no probs making them.

Please hop over to the challenge blog to see what the others have been up to and to check out this week's prizes - oh and before I forget the theme this week is for mum :c)

2 Sisters - make your own embellies
Allsorts - special lady
Craft Your days Away - mum
Stampin for the Weekend - mothers day
Colour Create - pastels

Pink and Purple

Although my card is more purple & pink for the colour challenge over at I Did It Creations this week. We're sponsored by the marvellous Stitchy this week and I've used her image called welcome home on my incredibly simple card. This paper from Memory Box called Gossamer is so lovely I didn't want to spoil it by even adding a sentiment.

Buttons & Teddy Bows for Tuesday

It's buttons and bows this time round for the Teddy Bo challenge - and this image I've used is so new I have no idea what it's called at the time I'm writing this post (Sunday Afternoon) as it's not even in the shop so you'll have to go and see who jumps into your basket this week lol!
I've used the layout from Fussy and Fancy Friday although I just realised I put the sentiment in the wrong place - oops.

One for the Boys

You really must join in this weeks challenge at OSAAT as the theme has been chosen by me!!! You should all know my love of everything pink and girly so I've chosen one for the boys :c) I've used this wonderful image by Barbara Jensen called Fluff
I've kept it very simple this week just some red and black card, some fab ribbon that was 25p for 5m from Tesco Xmas sale and some doodles with gold gel pen.


One very every bright one from me as our challenge at IDIC this week is Spring! I've used this gorgeous image called Ollie Rainbow Bubble by Lexi Creations who is our sponsor this week.
I've chosen Forever friends spring papers, and coloured the flowers and Craftwork cards butterfly sentiment to match. The ribbon was used to tie up a gift bag with a mug in that I got for my birthday.

Teddy Bo Tuesday

Pale pink again - I think I must be ill - nope that's the hubby who managed to get himself taken to A&E on Friday with severe chest pains and who has been very very poorly and quite unfairly in my opinion made me use my weekend craft time cooking!!! He seems to be a bit better now but has blood tests booked in for tomorrow as he had a blood sugar level of 22 and may well be diabetic.

Anyhoo my card uses one of the recent wedding images that you can get from Teddy Bo but you really need to nip over to check out this weeks release as Gayle has coloured some in already and there is a black and white and sepia version of the wedding car
Plus everyone's fave Fairy Bea in 5 colours.................

Glitter and Gems at One Stitch at a Time

Ooohhhhhh shudder my cat so hates glitter and I'm not that keen meself but even though this easel card is pink and glittery and girly I really enjoyed making it. So for all you twinkly types our challenge at OSAAT this week is to use glitter and gems
I've used Wedding Cake by Hope Jacare this week and glittered and gemmed it to within an inch of its life with sakura pens, loose glitter, individual gems and the bane of my life - stickles lol! (think this is diamond) The pink colour scheme was also a bit of an accident :c)
The benefit of digis is you can print them as big or little as you like so have a small one here to support the easel which I squinted at to colour and glitter. The stamp is one of a set i had made to match when I was making my wedding invitations - sorry I can't remember who by or even the font!
Please hop over and show the girls some love and check out the fab prizes for this week at the challenge blog

This image has been quite popular in our challenges at Teddy Bo so decided I'd jump on the band wagon with a card for my daughter's grandad. He's called Pirate Bo and you can of course get him along with lots of his friends from here
The sentiment ticket is from Pink Gem and the paper is possibly Basic Grey which I received in a swap - I didn't buy it honest lol! Photo corners are a long neglected sizzlit die.

The Mask at I Did it Creations

It's something new for me for our challenge at IDIC this week - masking having never done it before i had to find a tutorial and fortunately there is one on the challenge blog written by DT member Cindy

We are sponsored by Robyn this week and I chose one of her Red Hat digis to work with I've used purple with it as I know the girlies are allowed to wear purple hats in their birthday month (is that right Wifey?)
The close up shows the Rennie mackintosh Rose stamp that U used to create my background. The Dp is one of the Papermania capsule collections and the fancy edges are a Martha Stewart punch.

Lickle Bit Clever

I've been stitching as well as making cards - have mainly been using it to keep my hands busy for the last week as it's 7 days and 19 hours since I last smoked (not that I'm counting). If I said it's been easy I would be a big fat liar but it's not as bad as it was. Certain times of day are definitely worse than others and it's given me some extra time each day. I thought it would be harder as hubby smokes but I think the odd passive whiff is actually helping LMAO!

Anyhoo - this cute little guy is called Lickle Ted and will soon be on a cushion for my friends new grandchild due in April - might even get this one finished on time - hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

It's charming over at OSAAT

You've to use a charm over at One Stitch at a Time this week and for some reason I went all odd and pink and shabby chic lol! This beautiful image is called Angie and is by Sylvie Stamps - you can get her in the store along with other beautiful designs and of course our March collab with spends over $10.

I've used a fairy charm attached to ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, a doily from The Hobby House and papers by Memory Box from Crafty Emma's store - I even found a scabbby pair of scissors to run round the edge :c)
Sentiment is from Personal Impressions and you can't see it in the picture but her wings are pearlised and there is glitter in her hair.

Simon Says Stamp - recipe
ABC - P for Pink
Paperplay - shabby chic
Papercrafting Journey - things with wings
Little Miss Muffet - designer paper
Crafty Purple Frog - things with wings
Totally papercrafts - pearls and lace
Stamp Something - digiFairy Tale - something with a childs image

Sketchy at I Did It Creations

We have a sketch for you over at I Did it Creations this week and we're also sponsored by The Stamping Boutique whose racing car digi I've used here. I was going to take a better photo but tall child pinched the card during the week for a school birthday so it's already left the house.

I think the black houndstooth paper is prima and the letter blocks one is DCWV.

Creative craft world - card for a male
Secret Crafter - patchwork backgrounds
Stamp something - digi
Crafty Sentiments - birthday

Mother's Day

**Coughs** Another "needed" but unused stamp gets an outing today! I am trying to be good and I've not spent anything on stash for over a week - whoop whoop.

I saw the sketch at the Pixie Cottage this week with the theme of spring and just had to join in although this might be a bit more summery than springy plus the Whiff of Joy challenge is blooms and buttons.
This is my mother in laws mothers day card so would like to enter it into the current MSE challenge as well.

Papers: both MME freebies from Cardmaking & Papercrafting
Flowers: Joy Crafts die
Ribbon: Mei Flower

Good Luck

I am lucky enough to have been asked to be GDT for Making it with Meslyn this year so you'll see a card from me for them every couple of months. This month's theme is Good Luck and I've used Melinda with flowers on my card who had been sat in a pile of stamps and not even inked up - oops.
I didn't have any card to match my Tea House papers so I coloured some white with Antique Pink promarker I also partly cut her wings out before using the circle nestie but I can't remember either what this technique is called or where I saw it.
Before I go there is also some yummy candy so don't forget to become a follower of the challenge  while you're there.
