Challenge #46

I enjoyed taking part in last weeks challenge & I didn't hesitate joining in again. This time though I've made an ATC using a very cut fun stamps image of a stick girl..... it's been a while since I made any ATC & think this turned out really well. The challenge was 'a little bit of sunshine'....... think mines got a big lot of it as the sun is rather big, lol

Sorry I've no picks to put up at the moment of the UT pieces I was going to make. I never got to play today due to visitors of the family kind, as it's the other halfs birthday the 26th....Oooo that's now then. Will post a picky of the card I made him after he's seen it... he pops in on my blog from time to time so don't want him seeing before hand.

Another brayered card, using stamps from Cherry pie stamps Here ..which I love & from Elusive images for the word dream Here. All inks used were Impress inks which I find work well, although I could do with some pastel shades.
My next post hopefully won't be so short & sweet. Tomorrow I hope to get to grips with a few packs of those scrummy Cosmic Shimmer UT powders that I brought recently, I love UT & these are the first lot of Cosmics that I've brought..... can't wait to see the results & hope to share with you all the finished results.

Your having a laugh challenge # 45

This is my first go at a 'my time to craft challenge... in fact it's only the third challenge I've ever done. I had soo much fun making this card I hope to join in again.
Have to say it was lucky this stamp was in my collection as I've not really got anything else that would have been fitting... must make a note to buy more funny stamps.

For anyone wanting to join in with on of the challenge's here's a link to their blog

Wow I won... & it arrived today

I had an email from L'Occitane at the end of November with a link to a site called Promod. This site had an Christmas advent calender where you had to answer a question everyday to win a prize. As it was free to enter I thought why not, a week later I had another email saying I'd won a prize..... well at first I thought it was one of those scam emails you get, as I never win anything, but on the second read realised I'd actually won something & was very pleased indeed, I was even more pleased when I found out it was this beautiful L'Occitane box that only had my all time favourite within.... Cherry blossom, yum.

While on the subject of good things, my youngest dog Milo started Agility tonight & he was great, really did me proud... I was quite worried he'd go gallivanting off around the enclosure when let off & not jump one hurdle, but, not only did he jump it he then went on to do a jump, then the tunnel followed by 2 more jumps.... woo hoo

2009 & a card

Bit late but hope this year has started off well for everyone, finally got rid of the cold, but not before giving it to my other half, which meant we where both feeling very poorly over Christmas... worst luck & it's meant I've done no crafting at all.... just haven't felt up to it,
but thought I'd post a pic of the card I made when I first got the wonderful faeries & wildlife stamps from Graphicus back in November. (it was going to go into the December Graphicus website competition, but doesn't look like it will be happening now as it's been changed)
