Rainbow or monochrome at As You Like It

Over at As You Like It the challenge for the next two weeks is Rainbow or Monochrome. I'll be honest, I couldn't decide which to go for because I'm fond of both. I do, however, slightly favour the monochrome look as it gives a cute vintage look to a project.

I've sneaked in a tiny splash of red because I'm totally unable to follow a brief ;-)

Hope you get chance to join us xxx

Autumn or Halloween Colours at As You Like It

So our challenge at As You Like It for the next two weeks is Autumn or Halloween colours. Now, I love Autumn but I LOVE Halloween! All things Halloween - particularly all the purples and black :-)

I coloured up this Kit and Clowder class - I just love this little witch.

I hope that you can join us for this challenge - what's not to love?


I'm entering this into:

Pink Ink Designs Unicorn or Horse

I bought this Pink Ink Designs Unicorn or Horse stamp yesterday and couldn't resist having a quick play before getting on with the housework ;-)

It's a bit different for me - I very rarely get the distress inks out these days but I had an idea in my head and that was it!  I think the technique of dabbing white paint (gesso in my case) through a circle mask is called bokeh - possibly!

I really want to finish it now but should get on with proper big girls jobs ;-) Not sure whether to stamp swirls around the edge or leave it alone!

I'm really quite taken with this stamp - I love it when I'm reminded why I love crafting!!

I've finished the card - I turned it into an easel with one of my very favourite sentiments :-)

CAS or Frilly at As You LIke It!

I'm super excited/nervous today! I have been asked by Annette and Squirrel to join the fabulous As You Like It Challenge team :-) I said no a few times due to fear and then got a grip and said yes. lol! I think they're kind of used to me being a nut job!

The challenge for the next couple of weeks is CAS or Frilly.  I  like to do both to be honest but for really special occasions, particularly when it's taken me an age to colour something, I go with CAS :-)

This is a beautiful image available at Kit and Clowder with the September Marker Class.

I hope that you get the opportunity to join us. Hugs xx

It's Friday at last - phew! That was one crazy week. I am on the verge of finishing the painting :-)

Bauble Bears!

I'm knee deep in decorating at the moment but I've taken a crafting break to try out these new Bauble Bear stamps from Lili of the Valley :-) (I'm also taking a break because whilst standing on a buffet to hang some blinds I lost balance, went flying, and am in too much pain to paint!!)

This bauble comes with 3 other baubles in which are cute bears and lots of sentiments. The Merry Christmas stamps are on a separate sheet of words :-)

Crafting is a way safer past time than decorating! Painting skirting boards goes on forever :-( I thought I might get away with one coat but after closer inspection I'm afraid that is so not happening! Onwards and upwards ;-)

Snow Day!

I'm wilting!  To cheer myself up I have immersed myself in Christmas card making :-) Christmas cards are my favourite crafty make - it's just an excuse to go mad with glitter, ribbon and all manner of loveliness ;-)

This is another card from the Lili of the Valley Hochanda show from the Vintage stamp set.
