Anything Goes

Oh boy what a week, I am so hating the snow right now! It looks so beautiful when it first falls, but now it is causing nothing but chaos. Ended up booking the rest of this week of work as I wasn't due to break up until Christmas Eve, but as it has been so quiet I couldnt see the point of fighting my way into work everyday so have got a couple of un-expected days that I can do some crafting hehe :)

Not really had chance to enter many challenges over the last few weeks, but I made this card last week for my son to give to his friend last Saturday for her Birthday as it happens he ended up not going to the party as we were hit with 10 inches of snow. Hopefully we will be able to drop it round if this snow ever clears!! This week at I ♥ Promarkers the challenge is for Anything Goes. Have used my new stamp from LOTV called Rosie with Presents and coloured her with promarkers. The senitment is also from LOTV. Not sure what the backing paper is as I have had it for ages.

Wishing everyone a fantastic Christmas and New Year and looking forward to entering lots of new challenges in 2011 :)

I cannot believe it's Wednesday again! Where on earth do the weeks go and my gosh what time do you ladies get up in the morning, was on here first thing while at work and there were already at least 50 posts!

Anyway here is my desk for today, I did actually give it a bit of a tidy yesterday so it's not looking to bad at the moment.
I finished making the box the other day so wanted to show you that and used my new Whiff of Joy, Fancy shape on it, which I am loving and using where ever I can hehe. I am in the middle of finishing off a new baby card for someone at work and I had some new stash arrive today. Orderd the Forever Friends Black and Gold cd ages ago from Create & Craft, which finally arrived today. And LOTV sent me an email yesterday advertising their new stamps coming out in January and as I was a little bored at work had a quick look round at some of their other stamps and ended up ordering For You Circular Sentiments stamps, Calendar Stamp and Rosie with Presents stamp and can't believe they came today! Thats what I call a service hehe.

Off to make a card now for my son to give to his friend on Saturday for her birthday, think I will use my new Rosie with Presents :)

I will probably be bored again tomorrow at work so will come looking at everyones work desk. Have fun and enjoy the rest of your evening.

A Christmas Carol

This week at I ♥ promarkers the theme is 'A Christmas Carol/Song'. I brought this fab stamp a while ago from LOTV and not had chance to use it, so thought it was definatley time it was inked up!
Have used memento ink to stamp the image onto Neenah Classic card and coloured with promarkers. Glittered the image up with diamond sparkles. Used my fab new die 'Fancy Shape' from Whiff of Joy and stamped it with one of their season's greetings. Papers are by Papermania, which Osbornes were selling off so brought two packets :) Punched out the flower, leaves and snowflakes and added a bit of sparkle and a couple of gems.

Followed another fab sketch from Friday sketchers, which I realised when editing the photo for the website, I have stuck two of the back papers round the wrong way so you cant really see one of the layers - oops

Over at Kenny K's this week the challenge is Monochromatic. Well this is totaly new to me and to be honest I found it a little daunting. I pondered for a long time over what colour I should go with and decided in the end to stick with grey promarkers.
I used Mrs Claus for this card (she was one of my freebies for winning the challenge the other week - hehe). Sparkled her up with some glitter and mounted her on black and silver mirror card. The backing paper is from the Mono Paper Pack from Papermania and the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, which I sprayed with a bit more glitter :)
For my first attempt at colouring in this style i'm pretty pleased and will definatley be trying this again, maybe with a colour next time :)

Oh Christmas Tree

This week at I ♥ Promarkers they are after Christmas Trees, I hope this lovelly lady from Bugaboo counts as she is wearing a Christmas tree on her head hehe.
The image is DeDe from Bugaboo, which I have coloured with promarkers and the rest of the bits are from the stash.

Thank you for stopping by and dont forget to leave a comment as I love reading them :)

WOYWW - 77 or is it 78

Not had chance to do any crafting since last Wednesday, have been dieing to play with some of my new stash but life just keeps getting in the way! Haven't even managed to enter any new challenges so far this week, roll on the weekend...........

I did manage to make some labels though for jars of sweets for my sons Christmas Fair and my lovelly mother brought me some bunches of flowers from the pound shop (which I did wonder how the hell am I going to use these!!) and then realised that they worked wonders if you take them apart and now I have hundreds of flowers hehe.

Have also been experimenting with boxes as I love buying jewellery as gifts but can never find nice boxes to present them in, so had best get on and finish at least one!

Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday (I know not much of it left), will have to try and visit some of your fab workspaces during my lunch break at work wont get any crafting done at all if I start blog hopping now hehe
