The theme this week is appropriately

A card for Maureen

This card is one I made for my special friend Maureen.... The images are downloads from Cemerony and or Dezinaworld. I cant remember where the Friends stamp came from. It's one of my favourites that I've had since I first started rubber stamping, may have been from QVC. the text stamp is by Stampendous, another favourite. I wanted to use blues because thats her favourite colout but some how it ended up green! but at least it has butterflies... also one of her favourite things.

 Enjoy your Tues evening

A little bit of RED

Hello and welcome. Its my  turn to host the challenge at Make My Monday I would like to see your creations in
Black and white with a dash of RED

 I love this cat stamp from Katzelkraft.stamped with Versafine, onyx black coloured with Whispers strokes with an added touch of Glimmer Mist.

 I can't remember which set of Christmas stamps this little bauble is from... cute though!

The second card is made with one of my favourite La Blanche stamps.

The cheery Father Christmas has been raised up on sticky fixes all jazzed up with Christmas red Stickles. Sentiment on both is from the  Penny Black: Wonder set.
I find this idea a quick and easy way to get loads of Christmas cards , or any cards, done and dusted.
 See you soon

Vintage Christmas.

Good morning, as I sit enjoying my breakfast the sun is streaming in through my windows......  hope it remains that way.
At  Make My Monday  this week the challenge is
I decided to make a vintage Christmas card
 I printed the backing papers off my computer but i can't remember where I got them. The postcards are from last years 12x12 DP... no stamping, most unusual . I love the little Christmas bells. I'm also in love with sequins at the moment. I frequently used them when I first started making cards.... I have loads!
 The team at MMM would love to see your vintage creations pop across to thee challenge blog to see the lovely inspiration provided by my teamies.

I'm pleased that I'm managing to create at least once a week at the moment.... If you could see the chaos in my craft room you'd better understand that statement! I am a very messy crafter but I can hardly move around and every surface is stacked to the rafters so I am struggling to find stuff etc. It is the only room in my home which is not undergoing any alterations so consequently it has become a dumping ground for .. we'll you name it.. But its next on my list for a clear out ( well after the shed! I can hardly get in there iether but the old carpet and underlay that the fitters lifted on friday will be going to the tip today!) I think you get the picture :-).

Have a great day
