Totally gorguss blog challange card

Hi all
well feeling very chirpy today, must be the fab weather at last!!!
I made this card for the Totally Gorguss challenge this week. You had to use ribbon. I did it yesterday while I was waiting to collect my daughter. My little boy Logan helped me he chose the button and the I love you button and I (for the first time in ages) threw the card together! Wish they all happend like that. Just got to sort my camera now so the picture is not blury!!!
As you can see I used my Martha Stewart punch, loving them.
Ali and Iain are at Birmingham show this week, thinking of them and all the hard work! So if you are visiting pop over and say Hi.
Love and Bugs xx

I enjoyed this card as it was done with no kids or cats running about so silence! Then I went off and stripped the sills in my kitchen. So although putting my feet up for a few days (as there are workmen all over mums house), getting the rubbish jobs done.
Getting all of my forthcoming challanges set out in my soon to expolde mind, must get some paper and write them down!!!

Grunge crazy and very messy!!!

My big tag and Laura's tag

Rose's and Sue's tags

Grunge Roses

Well we had a crafting get together today with Sue, Rose and Laura. We wanted to try out the new Tim Holtz goodies and it was very messy but lots of fun. Rose is great with the sprays. Everyone bought a talent to the table and it was great.
We made roses using the grunge paper then distressed them with the distress inks. As you can tell tags are big and I did a huge one so that I could attach a rose.
My kitty is doing great at home and is walking around and has been given a great report at the vets so a very pleased mummy.
Ali hopes to see lots of you at Birmingham this week, starts Thursday - Sunday.

Tag tastic

Hi all
Ali and I have been doing loads of tags today with the new Tim Holtz stamps, distress inks and grunge.It was great fun very messy and great. The new stamps are fab, although they seem expensive they are all so amazing, great to stamp with, great designs, and they come on plastic binders so you can put them in a folder. And as I am learning in life you get what you pay for. And they are fab. We used all the new distress inks (you can also find them on the website Ali has them on there at a great offer price).
Kitty is doing well she is having lots of tablets but is back home and in a cage to help her heal poor baby.

Happy mothers day if a bit late

Paige's card (my mega talented 7 year old)

Logan's card (my talented 5 year old)

Hi all
A little late for the Happy mothers day bit but I wanted my mum to get her card first before I blogged it. Only seemed right as she likes to look at the blog daily!!
I have posted the cards I got from my two little angels, given with lots of love, breakfast in bed with a disaster of tea spilt on the floor narrowly missed!!
For my mums card I used my lush new Martha Stewart punch and Tim holtz stamps as Ali had these dropped off in the week, and they are so so so fab. They had to sit wrapped up and to be looked at for a few days as my poor little kitty got hit by a car on Friday morning so been very sad and low. She is alive and has been at the vets all weekend she has a broken pelvis and is very poorly. Poor little mite, so been too sad to even use my new bits. Once she is ok I will make loads and loads of cards as the ideas are all up in my head somewhere!
Very exciting my first ever candy is finishing tomorrow night at midnight so the winner will be posted on Tuesday so watch this space good luck everyone and thanks so much for the great comments.

Flutterby crazy

Gone all flutterby crazy today. Ali wanted some cards doing for the show and of course I jumped at the chance. We did some fab things with butterfly stamps. The first (splodgy purple card, and my favorite) I used alcohol inks as the background and then stamped the lush inkadinkado stamps on using archival ink. I love the vibrant colours on this one and would say I am going purple mad.
The other card (the red and black one) was stamped using a magenta butterfly stamp. I am happy with how they look and I had loads of fun.
Still have not done my challenge card that I messed up but been so busy decorating. Just got the kitchen to go now and that is good as I only moved in my new house in December so very happy every other room fully decorated. Then I can get on with the crafting full time. Can't wait!!!!

Silly me!!!

Hi all
I have done a card for a blog challenge tonight. Thought I was being a smarty pants and was getting organized!! Got the card wrong boo hoo, thought it was a bog standard card required but I was wrong. Oh well, love the card so thought I would post it anyway.
I have used the new inkadinkado stamps, the little flowers and saying. Ali has yet to see them I got in first. They are so fab and great to use, they look lush on the corners and are so girly and pretty. I will be off to get my card right now!!!
