Going for a Hat Trick
The sketch is from Cupcake Craft & the addition of the charm qualifies this card over on Crafty Angels too.
I also had another bash at Michelle's handmade flowers there's a tutorial for them somewhere but I couldn't find the link, :-( I didn't distress the edges of the petals enough again, note to self...more contrast required!! I used eyelash fibres & beads for the flower-centre & again I'm pleased with the effect but not with the contrast.
I'll keep practising!
Thank you so much for stopping by xxx

3rd & Final Halloween Card!!
I'm also entering this for the C4E challenge but I forgot the felt!!!! Sorry girls, I'll stick some on I promise!! The frustrating thing is I've got some orange felt ribbon which would have been perfect for this project & I even had it in mind when I made the card, I'm gonna have to blame the nappy-brain!
Anyhoo.... I'm doubling up on challenges & submitting this card for the Secret Crafter too. They would like to see orange on our projects this week.
OK this is the last Halloween card now, I promise... can't wait til next year though!

'Tis near Halloween...
...and out came So Spooky Tilda for the second time this week (well, she never actually made it off my craft table, and to be honest she's the only halloween stamp I own!) It was such a trauma printing the sentiment though, our printer really does not want to play at the moment, I love the font though, it's called Beyond Wonderland & you can find it here.
This is for the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge who do not allow combining challenges under their rules which means I may have to create another card as there are quite a few Halloween challenges running this week.
Ack! What a hardship! I mean, Halloween cards are just soooo boring....NOT!!!
And I tell you what, I've got my eye on that little Devil Tilda too, she'd be brilliant for hen cards!

Roses on Paper Guest DT call
I was lucky enough to win $25 to spend at Simon says Stamp last month and this little sweetheart Tilda was part of what I spent it on. I was very impressed with how quickly it was shipped, thank you so much Heidi! xxx
Yawn! It's getting late so just a short post from me tonight, sweet dreams Blogland!

I'm entering her for 2 challenges this time, following the sketch, using both dry & heat embossing & the colours black & purple over on Crafts 4 Eternity. And using a tiny button in the flower centre & bling (honest!!) in the Skull's eyes she qualifies for the challenge this week at Crafty Angels.
Other products used - DPs: So Spooky, my new favourite toy...McGill Pine branch & a Grungeboard Skull.
Thanks for looking!!

Have you ever....?
If anyone recognises the sketch I followed for this little cutie please enlighten me! Lol!
Not to worry, I got to use lots of new stash creating this, Cosmo Cricket DPs, WOJ Henry Mouse & McGill Pine branch all being recent additions to my collection! I also tried my hand at affixing charms to a card, just too late to enter the cute card Thursday challenge, but hey another day another challenge as they say!
Edit: Yay found it!! the sketch is from A Spoonful of Sugar and very nice to work with it was too!!

Long time no see!
This little book mark pleases me in parts though, I'm rather proud of the tassel & I like the distressed edges of the floral paper which have been inked & glittered a la Kim. The book text peeking through the back is kinda cute...hmm, maybe I should have made more of that....
So this is it, no challenge, no sketch, just a little inspiration from those wonderful blogs I continue to view & maybe, just maybe my mojo might come creeping back....
It better, it's fecking christmas in 2 months!!!!!!
