Trick or treat

 Hope I didn't scare you!! 
Just popping by to share my DT card for 


I must admit that although we don't celebrate Halloween in a big way, I do love it! We usually carve a pumpkin and have a few decorated cupcakes. I also love the cute Halloween images and the traditional orange, green and purple colour combo! I've had this cute PB stamp for a few years but it still makes me smile

Here's the scare team, coloured with promarkers and distressed at the edges:

Ribbons and Bows

Hi Folks!
Long time with no action on my blog, but somehow 'real' life has got in the way recently - sigh!

Anyway, here I am back with my DT card for the new 


challenge starting over at Sweet Stampin today. 

I've used a LOTV stamp that has only seen ink once before, some very old papers and flowers along with some new goodies from The Hobby House. 

Here's the close up view of this little cutie!! The ribbon has some glitter on it but as usual it's not showing up very well!

Thanks for visiting and for any comments you leave - they mean a lot to me xx
I hope to be blogging regularly again soon!

A little chilli ...

Morning Folks!
Happy Bank Holiday to those in the UK !
I'm here to share my final card as a guest DT member over at House Mouse and Friends Mondays, sniff, sniff!
I'd just like to thank all of the team for inviting me to join them again - I've had fun!!
This fortnight the new challenge is 


so lots of possibilities!

I've dug around in my stash again and used up another sheet of decoupage:

The papers are LOTV and Wellington, finished with some card candi and a felt word which is actually from a sort of  Christmas garland, I just cut this one out from between the Ho,Ho, Ho and Joy!!

Thanks for looking!

Cowboys and cowgirls!

Morning Folks!

Yippee a long weekend! Hope you've got something nice planned??
If you get some time to craft you might like to join the fun over at Sweet Stampin where our new 


challenge has just started! 
We have a very nice prize this week from Crafts U love to tempt you!!

Here's my card using a very old stamp from Sugar Nellie called Cowboy Luca which I think has been discontinued for some time. I'm not quite sure if this has ever seen ink before, to be honest I had forgotten I'd even bought it until this challenge came up!! Naughty me!! Still at least it shows that if you hang on to stash for long enough it comes in useful eventually! 

Here's the Sheriff, he's coloured with promarkers and then edged with brushed corduroy distress ink:

The papers are really old too - a mixture of Dovecraft and MME. The sentiment is by Stampin up, ribbon,brads and charm are from my stash!! 
Thanks for looking and enjoy the long weekend!!

Just having 40 winks ...

Morning Folks!
I'm here today with a quick share, it's my third card as a guest DT member at House Mouse and Friends Monday - these guest spots are going by far too quickly...

The new challenge this fortnight is


I have to admit this one was a bit of a challenge at first! 
I've used just the bear on a Gruffies stamp called 'I dream of cake' and masked off the rest of the stamp. He is stamped in rich cocoa memento ink onto cream card that has been distressed with brushed corduroy and walnut stain inks. The sentiment is by Stampin Up.

Here's a closer look at Mr. Sleepy head! Papers are from my favourite masculine pack - Wellington by Docrafts. 

Thanks for visiting today!
