Christmas baubles

Hi had a busy day today with my grandaughter. We painted all morning and baked all afternoon. We made bright orange iced buns for Halloween. With lots of ghosts and  spiders on top. We had a great time.
Have done two cards tonight with my Christmas baubles from Dimension Fourth. I stamped the baubles then used Hobby art stamps to fill them. I also used a Marianne die for the Christmas tree branches. The Merry Christmas is an old papermania stamp. The baubles were coloured with distress inks and Promarkers.  Jewels and glitter for the bling.

I'm looking forward to my extra hour in bed tonight. Just hope I can get to sleep there's a party going on next door. Happy Halloween for tomorrow. Have lots of fun.

Halloween treats

Hi I'm not realy into all this Halloween stuff, but my Two and half year old grandaughter Maddison loves anything scary. She'll be looking for skeltons and monsters, I'm afraid all she's got is a Witch and a Mummy.

I have made a card and decorated a bag full of goodies for her. I think she will be happy when she finds the chocolate spiders and chocolate rats.My hubby found her a talking witch.I have used stampies from Sundae of Seasons Cd and coloured them with promarkers. I drew the spiders myself and fixed wobblie eyes on. These are my first attempt at Halloween will have to get a bit  more spooky
next year as she gets older. I had  lots of fun making them.

christmas cards

Hi  have been struggling to get anything made this week. Finally have made a couple of  Christmas cards to add to my pile. The first one uses a Penny Black stamp that I got recently  which is called a Wish for Peace. I coloured it with distress inks and added a touch of glitter. The second card was made with a stamp I got a couple of years ago. I have also used my Marianne die for the trees and a punch for the snowflakes. Hopefully will post something else soon. Happy crafting.

Wow these weeks are flying by, or is it me just feeling old.

  Dare I think how much stuff I have to get made and done before Christmas, dare not count the weeks.   Help!!!!!! I think I need to go and take a chill pill and lie down. Not counting cards, I've loads of sewing to be done for my grandaughter and knitting too.   Why do I get my self into this situation? I know I have loads to do and yet I get blogging and thats it, I'm hooked all night. It is fun though.....
I have been doing some painting. No not the sort were I really have to put myself out, that would be too silly, even for me. The watercolour sort. I've made a card with Hobby Art stamps. The easel is a template from Time for Crafting Forum. It's for my best friends birthday, I just hope she likes it. I really enjoyed doing this one. It was really relaxing.
Have a good weekend and happy crafting.

quick cards

What a lousy week I've had, only managed to make two very quick cards on Monday. I've had a stinking cold and cough all week and still trying to get rid of the pesky thing. Hopefully next week will be better. Both cards were made with a Kanban sheet of decoupage I have had ages. 
I have been stamping and colouring today will show you that tomorrow. Sorry to anyone I didn't get around to visiting this week.

Sew Special

 Hi folks it seems ages since I posted a card last Friday. I have been so busy at work I have been  really tired and haven't had the energy to make much this week.
I have just made this card  which is for a friend, that's why the Sew Special and she is 40 next week. I have really enjoyed making this card, I have always loved sewing and work with bridal fabrics all the time, so this was really up my street.   I stamped and embossed the buttons which were a free stamp ages ago . I stitched the fabric and stitched it onto the machine,  threaded the machine from the wound bobbin. I just hope she likes it.
I hope everyone as a good weekend. I have Maddison tomorrow and hopefully want to catch some of Sheena Show at 8am on c&c. Then Sunday hopefully off to Leigh for the Sincerely Yours Show with my crafting buddies.
