Remember I said that this is the year me and my friends turn 30? Well, here is another card for just one of those occasions!

Final Guest Spot with Some Odd Girl

Today is my last challenge as a guest designer for Some Odd Girl. I've really loved my time 'officially' playing with the SOG images and I'm sad to be leaving. I want to say a big thank you to Kristy and the other Odd ladies for having me! You can bet your life that you will continue to see Odd Girl goodness on my blog forever more :o)

Anyway, the challenge over at SOG this week is to create your own embellishments. I decided to whip out my blossom nesties and created a layered up paper flower.

Annoyingly, I'm not that happy with my card! I don't like my colouring and the ribbon has gone wonky beneath the image! I know, I'm too fussy...!

Goodie List........
Stamps: 'Angel Kaylee' by Some Odd Girl.
Paper: 'Tickled Pink' by MME.
Copic Markers: E00, E02, E11, E25, E29, E31, E33, E35, E37, E50, R81, R83, R85, YG03, YG23, BG72, BG75, W1, W3, W5, W7 - available HERE from Dies to Die For.
Tools & Embellishments: Stickles, Blossom Nestabilities, gems, ribbon, twine, buttons and felt from stash.

Thanks for stopping by today. I'm on holiday next week, so I hope to catch up with all your blogs then!

Some Odd Girl.....GDT.....Little Project!

Happy Monday everyone! Life seems to have returned to warp speed for me at the moment, so please excuse the sporadic posting! Unbelievably, this madness is totally caused by the fact that I've booked a week off work next week. It just seems daft that I will probably end up working stupid hours this week, just to have a week off next week! Anyhow, enough moaning....!!!

I have a special little project to share with you today. As you know, I am guest designed with Some Odd Girl for the month of February. When she offered me the GDT spot, Kristy asked me to make 1 extra special project. This got me thinking (and panicking!) right away and I started prowling around the house, looking for something to alter. Then I stumbled across a boring, black A5 folder that has been unused, gathering dust for the last couple of years. A plan was cunningly hatched.....!

As I always seem to be watching my weight (NOTE: I don't eat particularly bad stuff, I just have portion control issues!) I thought it would be a great idea to make a little food journal so that I can jot everything down. I figured that if it looked pretty, I might be a little more inclined to make use of it. Baker Kaylee seemed the perfect choice for this project, even if she is tempting me to eat muffins!

I also decorated the spine of the folder using a SOG cupcake which I resized and repeated to make a little border. I thought this might help to make my folder stand out when it is stored on a shelf.

Goodie List........ 
Stamps: Baker Kaylee and Cupcake - both Some Odd Girl.
Paper: October Afternoon - Fly a Kite.
Copic Markers: E00, E02, E11, E41, E43, E47, E49, E50, R20, R22, R27, R29, YG03, YG63, YG67, BG13, BG15, BG23, BG49, Y21, Y26, YR23, W1, W3, W5, W7.
Tools & Embellishments: Doodlebug rub-ons, Nesties, sewing machine and ribbon from stash.

The challenge over at A Spoon Full of Sugar this week is "Anything but a card", so I think I will enter my folder in to the draw

I hope you enjoyed seeing my little project. Make sure you nip over to Some Odd Girl to check out their fantastic goodies.... there is even a sale on!

I'll Miss You a Latte!

My card today features one of the fabulous "A La Mode" stamps from My Favorite Things - Miss You a Latte. I made it for one of my colleagues who moved on to pastures new this week.

I've also whipped out some of the green MME Lush papers and layered them up with some Bazzill Kraft card. Now, these are lovely but, guess what? There are NEW Lush papers out! Check out the new Lush 2 range here. Here is a little peek at the inside....

I carried on with the MME Lush papers, teamed with the Kraft card and also stamped up one of the sentiments that comes in the "Miss You a Latte" set. What do you think of the fab notebook edge? This is another MFT item..... Die-Namics Notebook Edge. I love the effect it gives :o)

Hi all! I have some exciting news to share with you today.... I'm a Some Odd Girl guest designer! I get to spend the whole of February with these lovely ladies and it really is such an honour :o)

Isn't Love Letter Kaylee fabulous?! I had so much fun colouring her, I can't wait to play with the other images I've got!

Whilst I'm here, I just want to draw your attention to this super cool sentiment. It is a fabby one from one of the Inkadinkadoo sets that the fabulous Tracy at Dies to Die For has.

Valentines Bear

Oh man, it took me ages to edit this pic! The image kept coming out all milky and horrible so I googled instructions on how to darken specific areas in photoshop. After much fiddling, I think it looks a little better.

Do You Stack Up? - Red Hot.
Stampin' for the Weekend - Valentine's Day.
Crazy 4 Challenges - Valentines.
Allsorts - It Must Be Love, Love, Love.

Sooo Much Better!

Now this is more like it. See, I told you yesterday that I would be back with something much nicer today, didn't I?!

This feels much more me! I love this paper, got to play with my sewing machine and am dead chuffed with how my colouring ended up on my puss-cat!

Also, what do you think of my fabby notebook edge? Well it's a new toy.... It's a Die-Namics die. It's wafer thin, goes through your die cutting machine cuts through loads of stuff! The good news is that this, and many other designs, are available exclusively from the very fabulous Tracy at Dies to Die For.
Goodie List........ 
Stamps: Motivet digi image.
Paper: 'Girl Friday' by Cosmo Cricket.

So that's it from me. Thanks for stopping by!

Eurgh.... this is horrid.

I think everyone will agree with this sentiment. Sometimes we make cards we like. Sometimes we make cards we love. However, sometimes, for no particular reason, a card which started with such promise, morphs itself into something we hate. This is one of those cards.

I have no idea why I dislike this monstrosity so much, I just do. In fact the only reason I am sharing it with you is because it fits in with this weeks Just Magnolia challenge (Going Dotty) and also the sketch over at Cute Card Thursday.

Anyway, I'm clearing off now as I can't bear to look at it any longer. Rest assured I will be back tomorrow with something a millions times more attractive!

New Baby

Hi there! What a glorious day?! Hope you are outside and enjoying yourself. I have to admit that I've actually been wrapped up indoors crafting. Well, I had to.... it was an emergency! One of my best friends gave birth to a little girl late last night and I just realised that, despite 9 months warning, I hadn't yet made a card! Now, some people love making baby cards. Unfortunately, I'm not one of them and really struggle to make them. I hope this one fits the bill though...

I decided to whip out my sewing machine and I'm really glad I did as I had forgotten how much I enjoy playing with it! 

As this card is for a special occasion, I also decorated the inside. Not something I would normally do but I really like how it has turned out. Simple but effective :o)

Goodie List........
Stamps: 'Smile' - Popcorn the Bear - available from Dies to Die For.
Paper: 'Ducks in a Row' -  October Afternoon.
Copic Markers: E29, E31, E33, E35, E37, E59, R81, R83, R85, YG03, YG23, YG63, YG67, BG15, BG23, BG49, YR23, Y17, Y21, W1, W3, W5, W7 - available HERE from Dies to Die For.
Tools & Embellishments: Sewing machine, Whimsy Stamps Sentiment, pearls from stash.

I am going to enter this in to this weeks Simon Says Stamp challenge - 'Animal Antics'. As I've used quite a few DP's here, I think I am also safe to enter this one in to Do You Stack Up's 'Patterned Paper' challenge.
Okey-dokey, time for me to skiddaddle and get the roast chicken on!

Simply Betty Sketch

Another super quick one from me, I'm afraid! I just don't seem to be getting any time to do anything at the moment! However, I do have a little something to share with you......

I'm so chuffed with this card! I followed the sketch over at Simply Betty Challenges (yes, the obsession continues!) and really love the layout as it's more busy than I can normally pull off. I also covered the challenge at Stampin' for the Weekend, 'Getting Warmed Up'. Well, surely this is bright enough to make you feel toasty, right?! The abundance of hearts also make it suitable for the 'Valentines' challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar.

Goodie List........ 
Stamps: Betty Valentine - Simply Betty.
Paper: Quite Contrary by My Minds Eye, available HERE from Dies to Die For.
Copic Markers: E00, E02, E11, E50, R20, R22, R81, R83, R85, YG03, YG63, YG67, BG15, BG23, BG49, YR23, Y21, Y26, Y28, B00, B02, B05, W1, W3, W5, W7 - available HERE from Dies to Die For.
Tools & Embellishments: Whimsy Ticket Sentiment.

Right I'm off. My colleague is getting married tomorrow and as there are only a tiny handful of people attending the wedding, he hasn't had a stag do. So..... he and us 5 girlies in the office are going for a stag lunch today!!!

A New Obsession.....

Paper: Thrift Shop by October Afternoon.

Ooh, before I forget, I followed the sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday for this card. I must point out though that I rotated the sketch clockwise 90 degrees and then flipped it along the top axis....  I'll show you a piccy of how the sketch looked after I'd done all this!

Hope that makes sense :o) Anyway, gotta dash, at work being naughty again. Lets hope this week goes quickly, huh?!

Star Light, Star Bright

Hi everyone, hope you are as happy as I am that it is the weekend! I have a quiet one planned and am planning on crafting up a storm! My first creation of the day can be seen below....

I'm really chuffed that I used some really old stash on this card. The rub-on sentiment is ancient, as are the leaves which are cut from a 3x3 DCWV pad - items both bought/acquired when I first started crafting!

Goodie List........ 
Stamps: 'Star Bright Tia' by Some Odd Girl.

I'm off to do some more crafting!

Tiddly Inks!

A mega speedy one from me today as I'm at work and everyone is slowly phoning in sick! Eek! Anyway, as you've probably realised from my recent post, I went on a bit of a digi-shopping-spree the other day! One of those which I picked up was this super cute Tiddly Inks image.... So cute!

Goodie List........ 
Stamps: 'School Girl' by Tiddly Inks.
Paper: 'Report Card' by October Afternoon.
Copic Markers: E00, E02, E11, E29, E31, E33, E35, E37, E50, R20, R22, R32, R35, R37, R59, YG03, YG63, YG67, B32, B39, B45, W1, W3, W5, W7 - available from Dies to Die For. 
Tools & Embellishments: EK Success Punch, ribbon and pearls from stash.

I'm going to enter this little one in to this weeks Tiddly Inks challenge. The challenge is 'Just Be Me' and the team want you to make a card which reflects your personality. Well, I thought that this little lady was pretty representative of me as..... 

a) I work in a University and so am  generally surrounded by books and academia.
b) At home, when I'm not crafting, I permanently have my head buried in a book (or my Kindle!). 
c) I love bright and bold colours!

The only thing on my card that isn't like me is that I am actually blonde, not a brunette! I'm afraid I went for what would look better with my lovely papers, rather than how I actually look in real life! In addition, my legs are unfortunately 4 times the size of this pretty little thing....!

Hope you are having a good week. At least it's nearly the weekend! ~♥~

Crikey, I'm doing well on the posting front at the moment! I guess it helps that I've been making lots of cards and so actually have something to show you! I'm so thankful that the craziness of September-December last year has finally died down and I finally have my life back!

I really enjoyed making today's card. I've fancied this Motivet image for ages and so was overjoyed the other day when I realised that it was now available in digi form!

Isn't she the cutest?! I also got to exercise my other new paper pad which I wasn't technically supposed to buy! What can I say? I have a weakness when it comes to Cosmo Cricket and October Afternoon!

Goodie List........

Hope you are all fine and dandy,

Mmm... New Papers!

As I mentioned in my last post, I am truly useless when it comes to resisting pretty papers....! My latest order arrived this morning and I just couldn't wait to get stuck in. I had 2 new pads and now 2 new cards have been created ;o)

This is the first of the two and I'm really pleased with it. I love purple cards but find it hard to find decent purple papers. Well, my search is over. I am totally loving this Pixie-licious stuff!

I also altered my hair colouring technique and it actually worked pretty well. I need more practice but I'm on my way to being satisfied with the overall effect. 

Goodie List........

Paper: Pixie-licious by Cosmo Cricket.

Some Little Notelets

I was totally rubbish with Christmas cards this year. I made about 4. Useless. So, I decided to make a few {super quick} notelets to send as 'New Year' greetings. {You can click to make them a bit bigger ;o) }

I was keen to use up some of my lovely, but older, Doodlebug papers. As most of you know, I am a complete paper fiend and am constantly eyeing up more papers. However, I've made a deal with myself that I can buy some new papers in February, as long as I start using up some of my older ones in January. That's a fair compromise, huh?!

I also had these mega cute Elzybells stamps which I bought yonks ago but which have never seen ink. What a travesty?! Anyway, I had loads of fun colouring these mega simple images. We all need simple cards sometimes, right?

And a few more, this time with a chocolatey theme.....!

I was going to enter these into a few challenges but have just realised that I have missed the deadline by about 4 minutes. Nothing changes does it?!

By the way, before I go, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the very warm welcome back that you all gave me! I really appreciated it and it has made me realise just how much I missed you guys during my blogging break :o)

ETA: Oh dear... I broke my resolution already. I didn't wait 'til February. I just bought 2 new papers pads!!! ARGH! Well, tell me, who can resist Cosmo Cricket and October Afternoon ON SALE?!?! ~♥~ Pin It

It's Been a Long Time Coming.....

... but I am finally updating my blog! So sorry I've been away for so long. Life has been hectic to say the least over the couple of months and I have had very little free time. However, New Year, new start. I'm desperate to get inky so hopefully you will see a few more creations over the coming weeks and months. That's the plan anyway.....!

This year is a scary year as me and my best friends turn 30. ARGH! Here is the first 30 card of the year which I made the other night.

Although this card came together quickly, I think it is safe to say that my colouring skills are a little rusty. Oh well, more practice needed and maybe even a few more sneaky Copic purchases! My babies! I've missed you! ;o) 

Goodie List........ 
Stamps: Kenny K.
Paper: 'Urban Prairie' by Basic Grey, Bazzill Kraft card.
Copic Markers: E00, E02, E11, E29, E31, E33, E35, E37, E50, E57, R20, R22, R81, R83, R85, YG03, YG63, YG67, YR23, B12, W1, W3, W5, W7 - available HERE from Dies to Die For. 
Tools & Embellishments: Nestabilities, Thickers and gems from stash.

I also managed a squeeze a few challenges in to this card which I was really pleased about as I've so missed playing along with everyone. 

Sketch & Stash - I followed the sketch and used my favourite 'old' stash, my beloved BG Urban Prairie. 
Cute Card Thursday - Out with the Old - I used up some really old Thickers which have just been gathering dust!
Charisma Cardz - Birthdays and Celebrations - Well, you don't get much more of a celebration than the big 3-0 do you?!
Stamp Something - Digi Day - I used Kenny K, my fave digi company of the minute. 

So that's it from me today. I'm off to do a little bit of blog hopping now and to see what you have all been up to since I've been AWOL!

Thanks for stopping by today :o)
