Your love is my love

Lots of layers, a toughie for a girl whose heart leans towards CAS design!  Anyway, lots of layers is the theme this week over at Sweet Stampin' so here I am and if you count the card base i've got 10 layers, woohoo!

I'm not a green lover normally but I do love a bit of lime, with black & turquoise especially!  I'm on a mission to make more men cards but honestly think this would work for either species.  


Keeping this short as sneaking a few minutes to post but would love to join in some challenges:

Penny Black & More - Something New (Embossing Folder)
Shopping our Stash - Old (Stamps) & New (Embossing Folder)

Been wishing for you, am I lucky or not?

Happy New Year to all!  Did you make New Year resolutions?  For the first time in a long while, mine was not to blog more.  I've finally admitted defeat on that one & decided blogging is just not a major priority right now.  I'll stop kidding myself that I am going to make it a regular habit.

However, here I am right now and showing a Christmas card for this month's CASS challenge.  Without a sentiment because I couldn't find the perfect one in my stash, hard as that is to imagine.  I have 11 months to find one though, i'm thinking a die cut swirly one but not too big.


Taking part in some challenges:

As You Like It - Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge 367 - Anything Goes but optional something old, how about this mirri card? I'm thinking it must be 7 years plus!
C.R.A.F.T. - Christmas
Crafting with an Attitude - Anything Goes
Creative Knockouts - Anything Goes
Crimbo Crackers - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Something New, the bauble die was picked up just before Christmas.  This is it's first outing.
Shopping our Stash - Out with the old (Mirri card), In with the new (Bauble die)

Bring me a higher love

I was so chuffed to get a Top 3 placement from Stamping Sensations for my last card, maybe I should harness my pmt grungy, messy creativity more often!

Fairies & Fantasy is not one of my favourite themes if i'm honest with you.  I don't think i'm very good at it.  Despite that i'm reasonably happy with this week's card.  I love the black & white combination & I love that I used a piece of a very old 6x6 paper pad as well as an embellishment (that wee swirly bit in the corner) that I have owned for donkey's years.  A very old donkey at that!


If you're better than me at fairies & fantasy creations, we'd love to have you playing along this week at Sweet Stampin'.  Do pop over, the girls have made fabulous inspirations for you.

While I'm around, i'll play in a challenge or two:

A bit more time to Craft - Anything Goes
Simply Papercrafts - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for popping by!

I know what I know if you know what I mean

We've got a distress challenge over at Sweet Stampin' this week.  I'm not great at distressing cards, have to be in the right frame of mind....severe pmt usually (bizarrely) works well lol!  Hopefully you'll not all be suffering that while you're creating your distress masterpieces this week!

This fabulous stamp is from Inkylicious and there was sanding, inking, tearing, more sanding on this card.  I just went to town & enjoyed it...it's like therapy!


As is my habit, I'll enter a few challenges:

A Gem of a Challenge - Birthday Card
Crafty Catz 387 - Anything Goes (optional CAS)
Crafty Friends 68 - Anything Goes
Penny Black & More - Close to Nature

You'll have to kick him out again

This week at Sweet Stampin' we want to see your cute and cuddly creations, as mentioned in my previous post, I LOVE a Penny Black stamp! While I was in the box for last week's I just couldn't resist pulling this one out too.

I paper pieced the plant pots and matched it up with some lovely papers from Stampin' Up, they're sort of sunny but Autumnal at the same time!  It's one of those rare cards that I love, in fact I've left it sitting on my desk because it just makes me smile :-)


As always, i'm entering a few fabulous challenges:

A Gem of a Challenge - Fun Outside
Crafty Calendar -Kids/Babies
Crafty Catz - Birthday - WON a Bugaboo image :-)
Fussy & Fancy - Fall Colours

Another gear in a big machine

It's time for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin' and even though it's not my week, I'm joining in.  Life has been very busy (in a wonderful way) and my card stash is seriously depleted so any push to get me creating is good.

So team Susan have a favourite stamp challenge & we all know it's near impossible to choose just one!  But I do LOVE Penny Black stamps & they were some of the very first I purchased and are still some of the most loved.  This one has been in my stash since 2009 and doesn't he just make you smile :-)


Entering a few challenges too:

A Gem of a Challenge - Fun Outside
Crafty Friends - Dies/Punches
Happy Little Stampers - Anything Goes with Dies
Retro Rubber - Anything Goes
Rubber Dance - Also Favourite Stamp

Thanks so much for dropping by x
