Your favourite Christmas colour - Sweet Stampin'

Morning all!

So, we need to know... What is your favourite Christmas colour?
Myself and my fellow sweeties have made up some inspiration for you over at Sweet Stampin', and I went with... The non-traditional colours of lilac and mint! I find red and green boring, and despite the fact I use gold a lot in crafting, I actually don't like it at all, so the non-traditional approach definitely works for me :)

Naturally, thar be LotV...

Apologies if the colours haven't come out as strongly as I'd like. I seem to have a devil of a time photographing anything that has any shade of purple in it. Wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't my favourite colour! lol.

Your turn! come and share your favourite Christmas colours with us!

Have an awesomesauce weekend!

It's our birthday!! - Sweet stampin'

Morning all,

It's not my week over at Sweet Stampin', but I just had to play along, seeing as how this is our eighth birthday! The theme - unsurprisingly - is birthdays, and we hope you'll come celebrate with us!

So here's my contribution... a birthday card I made for a very musical friend (who is a little older than 8, lol).

It's very CAS, but he likes that kind of thing, lol.

Now it's over to you, but don't forget to come and see what my fellow Sweeties have made for you this week!

Have a great weekend,

Babies - Sweet Stampin'

Hi all,

Saturday again, which means a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin', and this week we're looking for your baby themed projects.

I dug out a LotV stamp and papers, and played with them:

Such a cute stamp, isn't it? The sentiment is also LotV, and it was a great excuse to use a few cute buttons.

Over to you, we're looking forward to seeing your baby themed creations!

Have an awesomesauce weekend!

November challenge - Altered Eclectics

And hello again!

My second post this morning, because we also have a new challenge starting over at Altered Eclectics! (I'm trying very hard not to think of the fact that it's November already, because I'm sooooooo not ready for it to be!)

I had a wee play with a small MDF "canvas". It's just under 12cm square, and really lovely to work on.

Many, many Craft Box goodies were used, as well as a Tim Holtz sentiment, and a butterfly brooch rescued from an unceremonious dumping in the bin at work!

I'm going out tomorrow to try to find new light bulbs, because they only seem to sell very yellow ones locally, and they're not conducive to crisp, white photo taking! Wish I could use LED bulbs, because the light tends to be very clean, but they also give me a terrible headache. Oh well, can't win 'em all ;)

Well, that's it from me for today. There's lots more gorgeous goodies waiting over on the DT blog however, so please do go take a peek.

Have a most fantabulous day!


November challenge - Rhedd's Creative Spirit

Gooooood morning everyone!

It's November, and my turn to host the challenge over at Rhedd's Creative Spirit! This means that besides the project I have prepared for this month, I have also got a mid-month tutorial lined up for you. Come on back on the 15th, and you'll see how I made this:

The "this" in question is one of the loooovely mdf plaques from Inkylicious. I may or may not have picked up a few at a craft fair recently...

For more details, check the blog at Rhedd's on the 15th. in the meantime, please do go take a peek at what my fellow teamies have made, and then come and play with us. Remember anything altered art or mixed media goes, but no cards please!

Back in a moment with another post...
