my new christmas paper

I spent yesterday afternoon playing with my new Christmas papers that i brought on Tuesday. After spending the morning making cards with my Little Claire stamps (still can't say anything yet about them) and waiting for the man from the fire place shop to fit my new flue. I made this card.

I used Teddie with a star from Lili of The Valley, coloured in using Promarkers, papers from DCWV - The Christmas multi stack, ribbon from my craft stash I also used Stickles - crystal on his hat to make it sparkle.

Iam going to enter this into the following challenges

Just Cute Bears - Bear Necessities
I Love Promarkers - Christmas in July

Hope you like it.

What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday

I can't believe that it's Wednesday of my weeks holiday, and i haven't done much crafting yet. As you can see from my craft room, but i am able to enter into What's On Your Work desk Wednesday. After my dad's birthday celebrations the weekend, on Monday i started to strip the wall paper off in the living room, as we decorating and having a new fire place. Yesterday i spent the day with my Mom, Dad and my Niece, (who is 2 and a half) we went shopping and to the park. Here is my shopping.

i have hopefully purchased all my paper for Christmas, in one go, all i need to do now is to make a real start on my Christmas cards. i have about 200 to make to send to friends and family, so i had better get a move on.

But i have managed to make a birthday card for my auntie from my mom, i have used some outline stickers from Little Claire, coloured in using Promarkers, paper from My Minds Eye, ribbon from Docrafts and sentiment from Little Claire. I hope my auntie like it. i will be back later with some challenge cards, but now I'm off the the hair dressers.

Happy Birthday Dad

Today is my Dad's 70th birthday and i can't believe it. You wouldn't think he is 70 to look at him, him and my mom ( who is 70 next may) look after and niece who is 2 and my nephew who is 10 months old 3 times a week, but i think this keeps them young. I have made this card as my dad love's gardening, as i have i a green house, he is always asking me how my Tom's are doing (he means tomatoes).

I have used The Office stamp from Little Claire, coloured in using Promarkers, i have used different stamps to get the dad happy birthday, the 70 is a sliver outline sticker coloured in black, the brown card stock, brads and buttons are from my stash. it's a plan and simple card, which is what my dad likes (no fuss).

I will be entering this into I love Promarkers - Buttons

Hope both you and my dad like it, I'm off to go and pick up his cake.

What a week

Sorry for the lack of posts this week, but what a week i have had. first i have been playing with some new stamps from Little Claire, i can't say any more as they are a surprise, but they are great, so watch this space. Then on Tuesday, i came out in a rash :( i have had an allergic reaction to something but not sure what it is. The rash has now gone but i am still scratching, it was soooooo much fun being covered in calamine lotion. Today i have had some fun, over the next couple of weeks i have my dad's 70th birthday, my mom and dad's wedding anniversary, my wedding anniversary and my sister in law's wedding anniversary ( July is a good month for weddings in the Butler/Nicklin family). so i have made my mom and dad's anniversary card.

I have used the Love Birds stamp from Little Claire, coloured in using promarkers, backing paper from DCWV wedding collection, pink glitter card, sliver mirror card, love heart pink ribbon, pink and sliver brads and banner from my craft stash. I am going to enter this card into Passion For Promarkers - animals. My Husband really liked this card and asked me to make the same card from my sister in law's (his sister) wedding anniversary. Hope you like it as much as he did.

Tilda fan

As i said yesterday, i went shopping to my local craft shop as they were having there summer sale. It was packed, and it's only a little shop. As i was wondering around i found the Magnolia stamps, and i got chatting to a lady who was telling how lovely the stamps were, as i am still new to stamping i had only seen them a couple times, so i decided to buy one ( well three to be exact) and i have fell in love with them. so here's my first Tilda Card and i am going to enter it into a challenge.

I have used Princesses Tilda, coloured in using Promarkers, paper from DCWV sweets range, flower and gold glitter brad from my craft stash. i have also used stckles - crystal on her dress and tiera.

I will be entering this card in to Totally Tilda Challenge Blog - Chocolate.
