Just chillin' for a bit.

It's Darren's Dad's birthday soon,
so I "treated" myself to a new stamp suitable for some of those difficult to do, men's cards.
I have combined it with a sketch challenge over at Truly Scrumptious
xXx

xXx
I got the stamp from Lili of the valley
they have some gorgeous stamps and they are really good value.
May just have to have another peek as they have some new releases!
xXx
Sorry about the photo being a bit scew-wiff, but the card is straight! honest!!!
xXx
Thanks for looking.
Big hugs

Pretty Butterflies

Good evening everyone.
Don't know about you but I hate the weather at the minute, drizzle is just so depressing!
I'm full of cold, my eyes are constantly streaming & I have sneezed so much today!
xXx
I have made a card for Sir Stampalot using the new
Hero Arts cling stamp - Dandelion Frame
I just love stamp, and have just used a section of it in the oval.
I have then mounted a cut & mounted a couple of butterflies from Penny Black - Enjoy Life clear set.
xXx
I have also entered it into this weeks Allsorts challenge which is to use pinks & browns.

A is for Angel, ABC Christmas challenge.

Who'd have thought I'd be back with a Christmas card?
ABC have a fantastic idea with their christmas challenge, which they're running throughout the year. Don't how I will feel doing Christmas cards if we have a heatwave though. But hopefully it will help with having some cards & ideas ready for next year, after-all it is ONLY 351 days until Christmas LOL.
xXx

xXx
One of the criteria was to use a charm, missed this bit out until I'd uploaded picture to laptop and packed card in a nice clear bag to put away ready to use come December.
Just about to upload post when noticed this little detail, so had to get card out and add a charm. Luckily the little heart ties in with my colour scheme quite nicely!
xXx
Anyway thanks for looking and your comments are always very much appreciated & do brighten my day.

I have used my new Bildmalarna stamp - "Tossa with Flower"
and some new papers & buttons which I've had for ages - so could be classed as old.

Jack & Ginger - Again!

Happy New Year Everyone!
Hope 2010 will treat you all well.
xXx
I have made a couple of new years resolutions,
Lose weight & Get more sleep.
xXx
I have made another card using the Jack & Ginger stamp,
I have been experimenting with colour. I tried to do sepia - not sure if I've got it right, or if it works!
I don't know if it looks too bland

Thanks for looking.
Big Hugs
