Bugaboo Bingo

Weekly Challenge!


It's time for our Bingo Challenge at Catch the Bug..., I chose the bottom line across and  made a stepper card featuring the lovely Stella-Stella Birthday Fireman Call. I found a piece of ribbon with cake slices printed on it which matched perfectly, added a small button to the sentiment tag (sentiment comes with the image) and I drew the candles ...trying to match the shapes of those in the image! This card was for my lovely friend who celebrated a BIG birthday this week...hope she's still speaking to me!
Thanks for visiting today,
enjoy your weekend

Glamour and glitz...it's birthday time at Sweet Stampin'


There's a party over at Sweet Stampin' this week and you're all invited to join in! We're celebrating our 9th Birthday so get out your sparkly, shiny stuff and come and join in! 
If you see a few sad and tearful faces amongst all the revellers it's because we're also saying goodbye to our lovely Abi, who has looked after us all (and kept us under control :) for over 8 years and during the 6 years I've been on the team she has been a wonderful leader, an inspiration and most of all a good friend. I'm going to miss her support and wicked sense of humour, 
 However it's not all sad news,  Sweet Stampin' will be continuing as usual under 'new management', Susan and Wends will do an excellent job! We also have some lovely new teamies joining us, so please hop over here and join the party!
Thanks for stopping by today
Enjoy the weekend

Good morning, this week's challenge at Crafty Catzis hosted by our lovely Nick who has chosen the optional twist of 'something with wings'.
Our fabulous sponsor this week is A Day for Daisies

watercooler
I used one of my all time favourite ADFD images, Braid in my hair. I think it was the first one I ever bought!, still love it! I used copics to colour and made an upright z fold card. The little added birds are chipboard, coloured with a brown copic, the die cut flower are Sizzix Tim Holtz.
As always my teamies have created some stunning cards to inspire you, why not hop over to Crafty Catz to admire them! Hope you choose to play along this week...remember the theme is optional...anything goes!
Thanks for visiting

Christmas at Sweet Stampin' -November Challenge


Hello, I'm back again already with my DT inspiration for this month's challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'. I thought I'd share something a little different this time...my Tomte family!. These are made from scraps of fur fabric and wool...and empty yoghurt pots. The largest stands about 10 inches high from base to tip of hat. They're fun and easy to make and great for using up left over knitting yarn!I don't have any patterns to share as i just cut the scraps of fur to the size of the pots and glued and stitched them in place. The noses are small circles of flesh coloured fabric wrapped around a bit of wadding (cotton wool would work as well) and sewn on. 
My teamies have been busy too, creating beautiful projects to inspire you, so please hop over to CASS and take a look, then please don't be shy, we'd love to see your Christmas makes too...not long to go now  before it's time to panic if you haven't made your cards!
Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely day!

#Happy Birthday



Good afternoon, a quick card to share following the sketch from the current challenge at Back to Basics Challenges.
The image is from the Paper Shelter, coloured with copics, papers from stash, stamped sentiment. I punched 2 circles from cardstock and drew on the faces to make the emojis, which are covered in Glossy Accents, as are his specs. I needed a card for my nephew... teen boys are difficult to create for!
Thanks for visiting,
