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!!

Hugs xxx

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

More from the Bauble Bears!

Another Bauble Bear card from LOTV this morning.

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 ;-)
