Santa Claus - Sweet Stampin'

Hi all,

Sorry I've not been around. I've been stupendously busy, and blogging has taken a bit of a back seat (admittedly not helped by the fact that I really don't get on with the new Blogger workings. I really, really miss the dashboard page!).

But on a happy note, the new challenge over at Sweet Stampin' is, very aptly, Santa Claus, I know I for one can't wait for the big man to come visit tonight. I know he's bringing my younglings some really great pressies, and even though they're teens now, their faces still light up every time, lol.

So I dug out an old LOTV stamp, and made this:

Right, I'm going to love and leave you all, as it's the busiest day of the year and I need to get cracking, but I'm hoping you'll come join us this week and play along.

Merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah and all that.

Animals - Sweet Stampin'

Morning bloggers!

Oh look, Saturday again! Before I share my card with the Animals theme for the new challenge over at Sweet Stampin', I would like to apologise for my continued absence from Blogland. It's going to stay hectic for a few more weeks, but I'm really hoping that this will change in the new year and I'll have more time to come visit you all.

Now, on to my card. you may want to shield your eyes or turn the brightness down on your monitor, because this one's BRIGHT! lol.

I used an image from our sponsor All Dressed Up, and paired him with papers I picked up at The Works.

Don't worry, I'll be back to my usual muted self soon enough, lol.

I hope you'll come and play with us this week, and don't forget to see what my fellow Sweeties have made!

Have an awesomesauce day!

December challenge - Rhedd's Creative spirit

Good morning all,

And I'm back again! It was touch and go there for a moment, because since Blogger decided to change things, I kept getting an "oops, something's broken" message every time I tried to edit a post, but just as I was about to give up and head to bed in defeat, it worked! (It only took 5 tickets to the help desk... *sigh*)

So here I am with my December piece for Rhedd's Creative Spirit. I did another canvas, and this one also made with mostly items from Craft Box, but this time I went for a more colourful approach!

Aren't those glitter-filled baubles the most adorable things imaginable? It just goes to show... Once upon a time I would have hoarded them and been too afraid to use them on something. And now what happened? As soon as I saw them, I thought "Must make something with these NOW", lol.

And now it's your turn. If you need some more inspiration, there's some utterly gorgeous pieces waiting for you over on the Rhedd's Challenge blog.

Have a fantastical day everyone!


December challenge - Altered Eclectics

Good morning!

Eek! It's December! I'm not ready for that yet!!

I am however ready for the December challenge over at Altered Eclectics, for which I made this very white canvas:

I subscribed to Craft Box a few months ago, and apart from the sentiment, everything on this canvas (and the canvas itself) was in a recent box. I LOVE this subscription. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

I hope you'll come join us this month, and don't forget to check out what my super talented fellow teamies have made!

Have a fantabulous day!
