Sooooo, this was supposed my card for this weeks CCT challenge.
'Cept I didn't actually read the deets of the challenge properly...

Yup, the challenge is "Dieing for a Punch" - we're after a card with NO nesties or punches.
See what I did?
Nesties and a punch.

Head on over and join in - we're sponsored this week by the fabby Stamp Shoppe - lets be honest, you can't possibly fail the challenge as spectacularly as I did...


This very cute Snowman is by Pink Cat Studio and is available over at Dies to Die For - I'll add a link just as soon as the website's back up and running properly :D

Enough already...

...yep, it's another Christmas card peeps...
Not sure what's happened actually - I've always been seriously slack when it comes to making these babies, but guess what? I even have another Chrimbo card ready to show you tomorrow! {try and curb that excitement, please...;D}

This one is called "A pile of penguins" and it's another from the new Laurence Design range over at Stampavie.

The Totally Gorjuss challenge this week is to use stars - so I think I'll add this li'l sweetie!

Enjoy your day!

Yesterday we went on an impromptu visit to Chester Zoo.
"Look how big the elephants are" I said to the li'l Horror.
"Yeah, they are quite big," he replied "but not as big as that lady there"
There really is only one thing it's possible to do when your child has just very obviously pointed at someone and declared them bigger than an elephant - I walked away from him as quickly as I could...

*snort* I only just realised what his shirt says...

Happy Birthday Heidi!

Today the very lovely Heidi of Stampavie fame is celebrating her birthday - Happy Birthday Heidi!

Here's the card I made for her...

Did you see yesterdays post on the Stampavie blog?
If not, hop on over to here and take a peek - every DT member made a card for a Birthday surprise - and they were all posted on the DT blog.

That's one seriously talented post I can tell you - it leaves me wondering when they'll realise I'm not really meant to be there...

Have a great day!

Christmas in August... the theme over at A Spoon Full of Sugar and I couldn't resist inking up Penny Johnson's new "Dearest Deer" image again {hmmmmmm, if I'm not careful the other stamps'll be accusing me of favouritism}.

Enjoy your weekend!

Neglectfully gulity...

Apologies dear Bloglies for being so neglectful of late...there is plenty of craftiness happening, but I just can't share it yet...

I couldn't resist whipping up this little tag though for the Stampavie & More "Christmas in Summer" challenge - I've used some MME Colorful Christmas scraps and one of the new Stampavie Christmas images - yay!
This is one of Penny Johnson's designs called "Snowy Cuddles" - too cute!

Catch y'all soonest!

I must give my apologies for being so late with this - I've spent the afternoon at the cinema blubbing my eyes out.
I'm not even ashamed to admit it.
The Horror's however, were seriously ashamed of me...

Li'l Horror: Are you crying?
Li'l Horror: Oh my God. It's Toy Story 3 - what's wrong with you?

The big Horror had by this point, walked off to sit by someone not so embarrassing...

It's a RAK #1

I have too much stash.

So I've made some teeny little bundles to send to new homes as RAK's - four altogether that I'll be posting on here over the next few days.
{Humour me peeps - it eases some of the guilt over the fact I've been stalking many craft shops over the past week waiting for the new CHA releases to hit...}

Want this one?
Then just leave me a comment :D

L8r sk8er...

Just a quicky, quicky post - I swear life couldn't actually get any busier right now!
I had to share a card I managed to make for the Anyone for Anya "Stitch it!" and the Crafty Catz "Buttons & Bows" challenges though - I seriously love the new TGF Later Sk8er set!
I also had the Simon Says Stamp "Sing it Baby!" challenge in mind - I couldn't help but sing Avril Lavigne's Sk8er Boi while I was colouring this li'l cutie! I have great memories of a much tinier big Horror loving that song!

Make sure you take a peek at this weeks CCT challenge too - the theme is "Whateva!" and there's a fab prize on offer too :D

Catch y'all soonest!
