A couple of bags

 I've been busy getting ready for a craft fair on Saturday so blogging has taken a bit of a back seat just recently - these are a couple of the bags that will be on my stall - the top one folds up into a handy pouch you can just stick in your handbag

Now for something completely different

I've been lusting over this stamp for absolutely ages and imagine my delight when I found it reduced to one our English pounds in the Range a couple of weeks ago along with the hydrangea one. I don't normally do grown up flowers but I luuuurve tulips and hydrangeas.

I also used a really odd promarker colour combination as I wanted them a reddy orange to go with the My minds eye papers so tried burnt orange, spice and lipstick read

Fairytale Friday Again!

Image: TEDDYBEA_255
Paper: Wild Rose Studio
Sentiment: Craftwork Cards

It's been half term here this week so at least I kind of got a bit of a lay in once he who must be ignored had gone off to work - although the first part of the week without the car was a bit of a strain but cheaper than paying for the hire car while we were waiting for his real car to be ready.

I've used another coloured image today as sometimes I just can't be bothered to match and shade and it's so quick and easy **grins** And remember our anything goes challenge is still running

Fussy and Fancy Friday

I can't believe it's time for another Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge already it's Team B's turn this time and we have a theme of Pink and Black - hmmmm I thought not something I would normally  but then I saw this free cut file from Birds Cards to make my background and immediately thought of my Mackintosh Rose stamps so here it is.

Bo with no Legs

Where do you find Bo with no legs?????? 
Exactly where you left him ROFL
I hadn't cropped any images for a while and decided this one was perfect although there was a dodgy moment with his arm when it refused to poke out of the Nestie properly.

Have you joined our latest Anything Goes challenge over at the Teddy Bo Challenge Blog?

20 minuters

2 cards made in 20 minutes - don't you just love Dustin Pike's freebie coloured images?
These were just perfect for 12 year old boys.

This one took a little longer but not much. The image was from Pollycraft and I know it has been sitting in my printed out digi folder for at least 9 months

Paper: Dovecraft Back to Basics
Sentiment: A Touch of Craft

I don't know where yet another week has gone - seem to have spent most of it engaged in "can you just" for he who must be obeyed and tall child - I think I need a proper job..........

Don't forget our anything goes challenge over at Teddy Bo - the coloured images are great when you're in a rush

Whimsy Wednesday

How cute are these bunnies from Chrissy Armstrong??
This digi is called Basket of Bunnies and is now in the Whimsy store ready for your Easter cards and Spring birthdays.
I've cut the scalloped octagon card base and My Minds Eye layer on my Cameo and added a sentiment from Craftwork cards.

Teddy Bo Tuesday

Clouds and Grass: Silhouette Store
Roses: Tanda Stamps

I've used a really old Bo this week for hubby's birthday card - I got a Silhouette machine which I love but it's not quite the same as a new car............... although for how far I go much more useful :0)

Don't forget you can use any of the bears to enter our anything goes challenge that runs until the beginning of next month (check the blog for the actual date).

Tall Child thought she'd got one over on my during the week. Conversation went a bit like this:

Me: I need to know what you want on the front of Hun's card
Her: Dunno what have you got
Me: Just about anything you can think of
Her: Ok (in smug voice) I want a purple cat holding a pint of beer
Me: How about this........................ and here it is courtesy of Digistamp Boutique

Paper is First Edition and sentiment is Imagine That Stamps

Paper: Dovecraft Back to Basics III
Silhouette Cameo to cut holder

As soon as I saw this image it screamed sticky notes holder at me and I handily had some blank ones cut out and a stock of sticky notes (I'm too squeaky to buy the branded ones) These ones were in the Tesco back to school sale ages ago.

We have new images for you and a new Anything Goes challenge at Teddy Bo today and these new ones are perfect for your Teddy Bear Valentine's cards

Mini Fizzy Moon

As soon as I saw these I couldn't resist a couple but lets just say the "mini" is no lie although at around the 99p each mark you can't rally go wrong unless you wanted something for a large card image. These notebooks are only about 3 by 5 to give you an idea.

For my inspiration this week I've used:

Love you Sayings
Flower Doodles Papers

The top 2 were free on the Whimsy Facebook page not so long ago so if you're on Facebook why not like them so you don't miss out in future
