absent Sorry Miss

Since Christmas its been a tad hectic with life, and i haven't been able to craft as much as i would like to

me making excuses ERM probably lol

So starting  this weekend i am going to settle down on the new desk being drawn up ( dad hurry up)

My ideas are brimming and i have wrote loads down so i can start with the cards, scrap pages and atcs and had some fantastic Birthday presents which have helped me out

this is a photo from my new camera its a nikon s3000 which Nick brought me and i have to admit its one of the best cameras i have had yet.

Clover i cant upload any photos as she is always asleep

but soon there will be new projects and new stuff uploaded

take care

Challenges this month on Crafter's corner

Challenges on crafter's corner last month

Been a busy month for my card making which I'm happy about as finally my head is clearing and I'm starting to see crafting ideas again.

I decided to enter a few challenges in the forum i use and i use it a lot as its a great friendly site and so many friends in it

No cards or atcs or scrapbooks was to be used so got me thinking
finally i decided on an old clip for my hair and an booklet with a magnet strip on it

above is the hairclip

above is the fridge magnet

Finally as the recipe challenge where we was told what to use and think outside the box

pink was the theme
flower in the form or picture or embellishment
no more than 4 brads
no more than 3 peel off's
and a punch be it corner,edge or shape
and a ribbon

and this is what i came up with

Football card

Football Card

Starting to feel the ideas come back now. as i haven't really got many cards to make for people at the moment i offered to help a friend out on a forum i'm on with some cards for the charity she helps out with.
This is the 2nd one so far its from the new do-crafts range of new stamps called football mad by J Byars.
I was a little daunted as im not used to using stamps of this nature so i used a basic cards stock to stamp on to with a Archival ink ( coffee) and heat set it didn't think it needed heat embossing with clear powder.
i kept the papers clean line with some stamping up card in a brown and green and a darker green card stock matted and layered
Used some ribbon from some old chocolates added some glitterations dots as they make it look at bit more special
and lastly used the sentiment stamp sent with love

Thanks for taking the time to look x
