Fancy winning some brand new rubbah...

...that nobody else in the whole entire universe has yet?

You do?

Then quick! Run on over to here and stick your name on the list...


Thanks for all the good wishes re. the Poxy One - he's started moaning again so I'd say he's recovering...

So poxy...

...'member I said I had a busy ol' week coming up? Well, wouldn't you just know that that busy ol' week would begin with the li'l Horror showing me some poxy-lookin' spots about his person...
Oh joy...

The plus side of his being contaminated is that I got to play a little yesterday while he snoozed...and I completely and utterly fell in love with this little chappie:

Isn't he just adorable?! You can find him here at DTDF.

So, you see how it's a card with a boy on? And it has a flower on it even though I have that freaky-weird flower thing? When I saw the Papertake "Do something different challenge" I decided to make a boys card with a freaky-weird flower on it - could it be any different for me?
He also fits in rather cutely with the Crafty Angels "Summer" challenge :D

'kay peeps, I'm off - catch y'all soonest,

Hey Gorjuss...

Hey all :D
I may not be around much this week - how come life decides to get busy-busy all at the same time, huh?!

Anyways, here's a quick little bookmark I made for the Totally Gorjuss challenge - I used some leftover bits from this weeks CCT card {here if you wanna peek}

'Kay - that's it from me. Isn't it great when I don't witter on about totally uninteresting schtuff?

Hey all,
A really, truly, super-speedy post today - I can hear the beach calling ;D

I have a simple little card today, made at the li'l Horror's request - he's obviously inherited my somewhat...errrrr, simplistic preference to crafting!

The latest ATS challenge is "Sewing", so I'll enter this cutie-tootie :D

Have a fabbitastic day - off to dig out my shorts!

I used to rule the world...***

Heya peeps, another happy, shiny day over here - yay!

As soon as I saw this adorable little Gillian Roberts image from Stampavie I just knew I had to make a little slice of cake to go along with ti!

Have a coolio day :D

***For reasons I have no explanation for, I have spent the entire morning singing Coldplay's Viva La Vida...very loudly...strange 'cos as far as I'm aware I still rule the world...

Getting sketchy...

...or maybe not in my case...
In my head this looked exactly like the fabby sketch by Andrea that we have over on CCT this week, but now I'm having trouble convincing myself! Ah well, long time visitors will know all about me and my sketch nemesis...

So that's my card...
Come join in with us over here - we luuuurve having you all play along with us and we have a fabby Alota Rubber Stamps prize up for grabs...come get sketchy with us, you're guaranteed to do a better job of it than me...


Oh, oh, oh - I gotta send you for a looksie over here.
I can't tell you anything about it yet, just believe me when I say it's so good, I'm actually wee-my-pants-excited about it...

English? Nah, I'd rather speak BBC Tweenie...

There's a fabbarooney* sketch over at Papertake this week - that Pigster's pretty freakin' good at her sketches isn't she?

I couldn't resist giving li'l Max here an inking and yes, I did find myself drawn yet again to a bit of MME Quite Contrariness {ha! betcha thought I was over that obsession didn't ya?!}

Image: TGF Max
Sentiment from TGF's My Guy Ian set
Coloured & stamped with PROMarkers and Memento
Papers: MME Quite Contrary "Jack & Jill"

Thanks for the visit, I'll catch y'all soonest :D

*I believe it was Milo from the Tweenies who first spoke the word Fabbarooney - gotta love the BBC for giving our kids such a fine introduction to the English language...

Colouring's way more fun than ironing...

Mornin' all!
My darling Stamping Angel picked up a coupla Magnolia mini's for me at the NEC - isn't this one a cutie?! I've been dying to get them inked and when I saw the latest Passion for PROMarkers challenge earlier on I couldn't resist! I may be teetering on the edge of the challenge theme with her, but I'm sure her adorableness makes up for it!!!!

Only a quickie post - I spent the last hour making this instead of boring housey things, that ironing pile's looming large over me...

Have a happy day!

Blah, blah, blah {aka - I can't think of a good post title...}

Mornin' all!
Dontcha just love waking up to oodles of sunshine - it makes the world look so much happier.
*happy sigh*

Anyways, here's a little card I whipped up for Magnolia Down Under's "Masking" and Papertake's "Cutie Pie" challenges...

It's a kinda a matchbook card, but upside down...nah, I'm not sure why - I just felt like making something a teeny bit different! I was obviously having a "moment" while making it - it has pearls and sparkles and freaky-weird flowers...

Off to do some colouring - thanks for stopping by!

Yes, I did have to sell my soul to Pirates in order to get home...

...but what do I need a soul for?

There was a big ol' pile of rubbah loveliness waiting for me {yay!!!! piles of hAnglars - bliss...}, one rather lovely li'l envelope from Kellie {lubs you Kel!!!!} had this little sweetie in it {who can also be found here at Dies to Die For}:

I couldn't resist giving her an inking earlier, while waiting for the washing machine to do it's thang, and I do believe this card fits in just perfectly with the latest Allsorts "In Stitches" challenge :)

Enjoy the rest of the day peeps, I'll try to get round and catch up with everyone very soon!

Goin' AWOL...

...we had a moment of madness last night and it would now appear that we're off on a mini holiday...catch y'all on Saturday!

A super-speedy card accompanied by a super-speedy post today - well, the sun's still shining and the beach has miraculously emptied...what's a girl to do? ;D

Hmmmmmm, not too sure what happened with Tilda's scarily coloured face {seriously, what's going on with that? Some kinda nasty skin condition maybe?}, but other than that I think I like it...I dug out my fave EK Success border punch, so it ties it rather nicely with this weeks Just Magnolia challenge {no scary faced Tilda's over there, they can obviously all colour in properly}.

Thanks for coming along to visit :D
Catch ya laters!

Saturday, 10 April 2010

Normal service will be resumed...

...just as soon as the Horror's have quit embracing their "we're not at school feral side" and I can be bothered to drag myself out from the sunshine and into my craft room...

Enjoy the sun!

Your dad is Doctor...who?

The conversation went a little something like this...

big Horror: D'ya know what would be really cool?
Me: Finding out that your dad is not actually your dad, David Tennant is?
big Horror: Ye-eees...{gives me an all-too-knowing you wish kinda look}...but I was actually gonna say if you made a kids card and didn't colour the stamped bit in, but gave them some colouring pencils along with the card instead...
Me: Hmmmmmm, you didn't copyright that or anything yet, did you?

Have a fabbitastic day!

Eeeeeeew - boys are so ucky...

...declared my niece, Princess Izzybelles after spending 17 minutes in the company of all four of her ucky boy cousins.


So in honour of ucky-boys everywhere {and for the High Hopes "Anything but a Card" challenge} I made an ucky-boy bookmark...

Stamp: Froggy Gift
Papers: Snips n Snails by 3 Bugs in a Rug
Coloured with PROMarkers and stamped with Memento ink

Have a happy {non-ucky} day!

Why didn't anyone remind me that I just can't do the distressed thang?

I have a challenge tripler today - Magnolia Down Under have a "Thank You" theme, the Creative Card Crew wanna see "Vintage/Aged" {shoulda just blogged a pic of my face...} and Simon Says "It's so Distressing" - here's my offering...

This li'l cutie and the prettied-up candle's are a little thank you gift to a sweet friend :D

Another quickie post, sorry - we're about to be invaded by 4 extra kids {nieces n' nephews}, I'll catch y'all soon {provided I survive of course...}


Saturday, 3 April 2010

Thank you...

...for all the lovely get well wishes - they musta helped cos I'm feeling slightly less disgusting now :D

Here's a super-quick card I made that fits in with two challenges - Anya Ink's and Papertake's - they both have anything goes kinda challenges...

I'll hopefully feel up to a bit of a blog-hop later and get a chance to catch up with everyone, if I don't - I'm sorry!
Have a fabbitastic ol' day,
