Spend, spend, spend!

Afternoon all just popping in to show you my haul from yesterday's visit to Ally Pally  >:D<

I had a fab, crafty day with Gay ( crafty musings) and we managed to get what we wanted, and more!
Definitely less stands than usual and not as busy as previous shows which allowed us to pore over all the crafty goodies and demo's!
Off to have a play now with all my NBUS and hopefully come up with something to show you later this week  ;)

G is for Gerbera

Afternoon all, don't know where the sun has gone, it's warm here but so dull! Tomorrow is supposed to be better, thank goodness as I am off to Ally Pally with Gay (Crafty Musings) and It's horrible if it's wet and you have dripping brollies everywhere!
I've just popped in to post my page for the Alpha challenge which this week is letter G. Loads to choose from but I settled on Gerbera, come and see:

Stamps and die cuts.

Hope you are enjoying a crafty weekend wherever you are and if I succumb to a little retail therapy at Ally Pally I'll be back to show you  ;)

Less is More week 137-OLC

Wow 2 posts in one day although it is 4 mins to midnight!! Just had an idea for this week's LIM challenge which is:

It's everyone's favourite this week... One Layer Week and hopefully this is an easy theme.  
Get Well Soon

I have a couple of sets of Clearly Besotted stamps that are NBUS and I thought the sewing / knitting set would fit the bill, come and see:

The flowers and the little bird are Majestix stamps and the sentiment was created on my xyron digital runner. I embossed a rectangle around the sewing machine and then embossed against the lines to create a dotted stitch effect.

I am also entering it into this week's ATCAS  challenge which has the code word: Get Well  

Thanks for dropping in and hopefully leaving a comment, I love to read them:)

Alpha challenge

Oops nearly missed the deadline for the Alpha challenge over at the Craft Barn! The letter this time is Z and there is not a lot of choice. Come and see how I chose to illustrate my letter:

Miserable here today but not raining unlike yesterday! Central heating is being cranked up as I post this ;)
Thanks for visiting I love to read your comments.

Less is More week 136-colour challenge

Afternoon everyone from a wet and muggy London! Firstly, apologies for my lack of commenting on your blogs, I have been having sneak peeks but we had a very busy weekend Charlie sitting and he likes to use my tablet! He was very good for us and wasn't at all put out when it was me who got up to him in the night and not Mummy and Daddy :)

Anyway back to this week's LIM Challenge which is a colour theme:

                  The colours for this challenge are Dark Green and Rust.

I used SU French Foliage stamp set and Adirondack Cabin Fever and SU Wild Wasabi inks

I punched out some oak leaves and the sentiment is an old SeeDee one.

This week I have been making a book card for my lovely friend and ex colleague, Jackie who is 50 today and we are going to her celebration this evening.
These do make such a special card and I enjoyed making it using colours and images that I know she will like, come and see:

This is the box decorated with punched flowers, liquid pearls and butterflies.

This is the card front decorated with dies and a few gems.

This is the inside using papers from my stash, punches and embellishments created in Craft Artist.

Thanks for visiting and any comments are much appreciated.

Less is More week week 135-use a rubber stamp

Hi everyone just a quick post for this week's LIM challenge which is as follows:
PENNY BLACK are playing along this week and offering a fabulous prize!

Onto our challenge for this week... We want you to use a 
In addition if you could use watercolours that would be wonderful!

Sounds a doddle but there is a twist with the the watercolour theme. I'm not a painter and had a few failed attempts with different ideas and finally came up with two cards using different techniques.

On this card I added ink to an acrylic block and stamped it onto watercolour paper. The silhouette image is a magazine freebie as are the starfish and seahorse which I stamped on shrink plastic. The sentiment is from the same set.

This card I added inks directly to the stamp, spritzed with water and stamped onto watercolour paper. I cut out the image with a die and the strip of card is embossed with an Anna Griffin EF. I shadow stamped the sentiment, it's not your eyesight ;)

thanks for visiting me your comments are always welcome.
