Charisma Cardz - Purple and Blue

We've got a new challenge over at Charisma Cardz and the theme for the next 2 weeks is the colour theme 'Purple and Blue'. 
For my card I used scraps of co-ordinating papers, pretty flowers that I've had for ages and a couple of buttons just to finish off.
For all sponsor and prize info please nip over to the blog.

Charisma Cardz -Something Not Meant for Crafting

Good morning, new challenge time at Charisma Cardz, and this fortnight our challenge is to use 'Something Not Meant for Crafting'.  This could be anything you like eg. an empty container, a bottle top, tin foil, greaseproof paper, a wrapper...........
Here is a project I actually did a while ago, I blinged up a pair of Ugg styley boots (a whopping £5 from Primarni!) for my youngest daughter.  Who doesn't love a bit of bling heh?  Obviously the picture shows a before and after boot lol I didn't leave them like this!!  I used nearly 1000 rhinestones!
I couldn't really pick up the detail in the photo's but they really do sparkle! 
I also did a pair of tan ones, plainer than the ones above for my eldest daughter but this is the only photo I can find of them, just of the heels, but I randomly gemmed all over the boots to!!  These ones took well over 1000 gems to finish!
For all sponsor and prize details please check out the blog, and you can also see what other clever ideas the rest of the girls came up with for their examples!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Well Valentine's Day is upon us, and although we'd bought cards (yes indeed I said bought lol!) I decided to make a card for my eldest daughter to give to her 'boyfriend' they're only 11 & 10!  I love these personalised prints and we chose the words that describe their friendship.
I then got a message from my sister asking if I could make one for my nephew to give to his 'girlfriend'! 
and one for her to give to her other half!
tonight I've also made an additional one for hubby which I've stowed away in his lunchbox along with various heart shaped bakes which I've also made today, and the traditional valentines choccies hidden in between sandwiches, cake etc!  and also made one for mum & dad!
So how ever you are spending the day, I hope it's happy!

Charisma Cardz - Time to get Peeling!!

Good morning, for our new challenge over at Charisma Cardz we want you to get out your 'peel-offs' and use them on your creations!!
I very rarely use mine, although I have loads!  I think all of the stamps have kind of over taken the poor old peel-off!  I know that I either stamp or make my sentiments via the pc!  But occasssionally nothing else will do lol!
Anyways I edged both of my papers with border peel-offs and the sentiment is from another sheet!  
For all sponsor and prize info please check out the blog!
Happy creating!

Happy happy New Year to one and all xxxx

We had a quiet night in, haven't been out for new years eve celebrations since I've been with hubs!  That's 13years and counting, and the year we got together we kind of spent it on opposite sides of the bar!!!!!  yes I was the barmaid in his local, indeed that's how we met!! 
Anyhow we let the girls stay up until the chimes of Big Ben, so a bit of a sing-a-long with Gary Barlow, some nibbles and some photos and it was soon time to watch the fireworks on tv and do a bit of the old auld lang syne and off they went to bed!
Lets hope 2014 is healthy and happy for us all xxxx
