So guys here is my challenge results for the Bubbly Funk forum.
The Vanilla Sugar challenge this month, being February was to create a "Hanging heart".
Guess what? I've done exactly that!
I have used some hearts I bought, I think, from Panduro a few years ago, because I loved their shape.
The scraps of material I founds in my box of bits in the loft and the raffia was on a recent bouquet of flowers, reuse recycle...my kids would be pleased!
The lettering is sizzlets bounce to match the material.
I'd like to thank the Bubbly funk guys for another great challenge and for finally getting me motivated to do something with these lovely hearts. I have kept them simple as I tend to keep my house quite minimal...less housework more craft time.....oh yes, there is method in my madness, lol! :-)
In saying that I love the whole American New England shabby country craft style....all be it this with a twist of me.
To all fella crafters out there thanks for stopping by....and happy crafting. xxx
On to today....this is the card and little keyring I've made for my pal Gayle to welcome the arrival of little Maya. The stamp is from Hanglar Stangler and is Bee, the papers are from Flair baby girl. The little mum mini book is from More than Words. The rest as usual is stash found kicking around! (Got a bit of that!)
I really enjoyed making this card and loved playing with the stamp...thanks Karen. I started the card whilst having a girlie craft together with Pam and Karen but I think I was doing most of the crafting guys, lol!!!
You know what I mean. I was just happy to be out playing.
Arh well, as they say on cartoon time "that's all for now folks!"
Have a great day and if you get time to craft....even better!
This the card that I have made for my niece to celebrate the arrival of her baby brother.
I thought the stamp from Sugar Nellie "Manga kids" was so appropriate for her and the papers are from Deja Views "little ones" collection.
The other embelishments I found in my craft room...it's amazing what you can find after a tidy up!
Let's hope she likes her card.
Can you guess who this card is for then? Yep this one is for my brother and partner...again I have used the Deja Views "little ones" collection so that everything matches. The stamp is baby bunny from SN also....I just love this stamp for baby cards and have used it quite a lot. It's just so cute!
So what happened in your world today?
I had my hair chopped short again after having it very long last year.
Is it me or do us girls like to grow our hair only to find it drives us batty so we have it cut again?
This is my entry for this months Sugar bowl and Marlene's sketch.
I have used Fancy pants papers Daydreams Imagine and Gaze...the flowers I have my mum to thank for making and also for the lace as she brought me a whole bag up last year after having a sort out...some of it is even homemade!
The sugar nellie stamp is Guardian Angel and the phrase stamp was picked up in the USA last summer and is by Inkadinkado...I love it
"Some people come into our lives
and quietly stay.
Others stay for a while,
leaving footprints in our hearts
and we are never the same."
This is how I feel about the guys who I was on holiday last year as we had such a fabulous time together and was a real treat for my big birthday!
So big thanks to the guys over on the Sugar bowl for a great challenge and happy crafting to you all.
So with the weather at the weekend "SNOW" the girls from our neck of the woods didn't make it to the crop which was very disappointing. I'm sure Jacqui still had a lovely day although a few others didn't make it too. Fingers crossed she does another event when the weather improves....she does organise a good do!
The good news from the weekend was that my good pal Gayle gave birth to a little girl, congratulations to you and the family can't wait to see the pics...xxx
Also I became an aunty again as my brothers partner had a little boy, early! Can't wait to see him too. xxx
Babies, babies, babies....perfect excuse to make some cards!
And finally to all you crafters out there there is some Sugar candy over on the SN blog but better be quick as it finishes on the 4th....one of the brand new Manga stamps and they are absolutely stunning.
