Sweet Stampin' - Anything but a Card

I can't say Morning, because it isn't.  I totally forgot to schedule my post last night because Blogger gave me the heebie jeebies!  Honestly, I thought it lost an entire post, raged & then realised it hadn't.  However it had randomly removed several bits of my post lol!  

It's a new challenge at Sweet Stampin' and we're looking for anything but cards so if you're like me you'll be pushed out of your comfort zone.

I decided to create a little box & venture on from a square.  Hexagon I thought.  Until I cut, scored & then counted the edges.....Ok I can go with an octagon.

All went swimmingly until I tried to make the cuts to glue it together.  I'm still clueless on how it should be done!

I'd love to enter these challenges:

A Creative Need - Yellow & Orange
Brown Sugar - Anything Goes

Head on over to see the inspiration, we've got loads of inspiration for you & we're sponsored by Marianne Design & Di's Digi's!!  I'm heading off to bed with Jack Daniels as I developed a bug today.  Forget the paracetamol, I go for curry, Jack & Bed every time!

Thanks for dropping by xxx

Sweet Stampin' - For a Friend

I consider myself incredibly lucky with the friends I have, truly they are amazing & I am so happy they are all in my life.

Hopefully you all have some of those people in your lives too & at Sweet Stampin' this week it's time to appreciate them with creations For a Friend.  As well as the stamping always required, your project must have some reference to friendship to be eligible for the fab prize from Emma at Flat Friends.

So I made 2 cards for this one, but the first one was one of those where the idea would not transfer from my head to paper how I wanted it...

This week I've had my 'bits' box & scrap paper box out on the table determined to use some of them, I found the little lady, sentiment and here's what transpired:

I'd love to play along with a few challenges:

Crafting at the Weekend - Anything Goes (3rd Entry)
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Sister Act #78 - Anything Goes

Thanks for popping by, have a great day xx
