Bottoms Up!

You know how they say 'there's always one..........'

Well it's usually me lol! This week is no exception as with a theme of bottoms Up at Sweet Stampin' I decided to buck the trend of tea, coffee, wine & martinis (I did add a beer!) and go for a different sort of bottom ;-)

Not much more to say really.....

Crafty Catz - New Beginnings (building a house)
Sister Act - Anything Goes

See you over at the challenge where most cards will probably be a bit less cheeky than mine ;-)

Short and sweet as I'm off on my jollies, fingers crossed for decent weather.....

Bon Voyage at Sweet Stampin' and a stash report!

OOh, the first of August &we've got sunshine so far this morning!  Could this be the start of better things to come for August?!  Let's hope so.  

We've a new challenge at Sweet Stampin' with a great theme of Bon Voyage and a fabulous prize from Crafty Ribbons.  Clearly I went very CAS with this one.  Some stamping & a little gentle colouring....job done!

Sentiment by Verve
Yacht by Stampin' Up

This card also counts in my 2015 goals/resolutions to make more one layer cards...yay!  That's a grand total of 15 so far and I definitely don't feel I've mastered them but I am trying!

Joining in some wonderful challenges:

Crafts 4 Eternity 237 - Anything Goes
Fab n Funky - No DP
Sister Act 117 - Anything Goes

We love to see you joining in so dig out those travel themed stamps & get creating!

Now for those of you that are interested, a used up stash update:

I can't believe I haven't done an update since February!  Which means I have forgotten many things I have used up.  Those things that live in my memory are:

  1. A pack of Remember When decoupage.  
  2. A card that is printed as a camera.  Purchased in Lakeland many, many years ago & unopened until recently, now just 3 more to use up!
  3. 2 different pieces of decoupage that I was given, not quite my taste so even more impressive to have used it
  4. I've also used up quite a few alphabet stickers, if anyone has any suggestions what to do with excess X's & Z's please do share...
  5. A whole 12 x 12 sheet of a hideous colour card!
  6. Quite a few rub on transfers
  7. Several pre cut cricut pieces
  8. I've finally broken in to a 12 x 12 paper pad whose colours I adore but find incredibly difficult to use.
  9. A pack of 3D Cricket toppers & 3D car toppers
  10. Shapes from those mahoosive Papermania boxes (1500 shapes per box!)
  11. Even some peel off stickers!
It's making absolutely no difference space wise in my house yet but I am nothing if not persistent lol!
