Are you ready for a NEW RELEASE - Scrappers Delight

Scrappers Delights is wanting to knock your socks off with the New Release, Im pleased as its so hot here in Australia.. Who needs socks!

I must admit I get a bit of a laugh when Im making Christmas cards with wintery images and lots of my sentients involve Christmas and Snow.  I can dream.... 

This card is using lots of things from my craft room that hadnt seen daylight in a while, I cleaned up and put things in front of where I am planning to craft and I hope it will mean that more of my crafting goodies get used more regularly.  I also finished the project and tidied up the table straight away... not sure quite whats wrong with me.

Anyway, onto the matter at hand.
I was given this cutie to play with for the New Release
Willies Gifts

I coloured him up last week and then put him aside awaiting inspiration for the project.  I eventually took my lead from the Facebook challenge where Scrappers Delights gave away an image for all that wanted to play, the theme was simply Tags.  

I created a circle with snow drifts using some dies and built up the tag from there,  I find it so hard to keep empty space on a project, so that little fine Xmas tree die worked perfectly to fill up the space while not overwhelming it.

Please head over to the Challenge blog and also to the store to check out all that is new.  Also don't forget to like the Facebook group.

My Sunday Creation

I just love this image and never got the chance to colour him up.

I had been promising to create a Teddy Bo card over on the "I love Teddybo Facebook page" all week so here he is!

I cleaned up my craft room yesterday and attempted to put all the things I use regularly in easy reach. So far the plan is working.  The Card base was already stamped up and put away for the perfect project and the remnant of dots DP was just sitting there (I inked it up, as it was originally light pink and white).    I added the sentiment to the sign prior to printing, using my Cameo software.

Im starting to add burlap or similar to my cards, just to add an extra element without overwhelming the project, I think it works when used in small doses.

I hope to see you all over on the Teddybo Challenge page entering the current challenge or the new one that starts on Tuesday.  The prize is very generous and the Odds are definitely in your favour (sorry.. hunger games is on my tv right now)

Monster:- V17,15,12,N5
Eyes:- G20,21,24
Sign:- E 40,41,42,44

Congrats to another graduate

My middle daughter is finishing Year 10 in a few weeks, in the olden days that was a milestone (we did our school certificate and we were allowed to leave school and move into employment, these days kids aren't allowed to leave school until year 12 .. there are a few allowances but definitely different from when I was at school)

I made this card with her in mind, she is musical and plays in the Regional Band and also the school band, so the patterned paper was chosen to represent that.  I tried to keep this card fairly flat and simple, again trying to keep the focus on the image.

Im playing in the

Saturday night crafting

Another week with my husband leaving for his course on a Saturday night, leaving me with too much time to think, best way to cure an overactive mind is too create, right!  This card came together so quickly.   I was trying to talk myself out of purchasing the newest MFT stitched dies (they are rounded corner rectangles.. ).  I created a mat around the image and added a score line, its not as deep as the dies but it is close enough (for now)

The card stock is from a 6inch Bo bunny stack called Bold and Bright, its so very vibrant.  And the image is from "From the Heart" he is called Candle Bird Brain.   I kept the colouring and the card simple as I wanted the image to be the main focus.  The sentiment comes with the image and is just perfect.   I found it really hard not to add more embellishments to this card.  Its not clean and simple due to all the layers but its nearly as clean and simple as my cards get.

Im playing in a few of my favourite challenges with this card, I've been slacking off with entering
Cards Galore - Anything Goes and DT Call
craftyhazelnutspatternedpaper - Anything Goes (but use lots and lots of patterned paper)
Ladybug Crafts - Bright colours (think Autumn unless your in the Southern Hemisphere..then just make it bright)

Scrappers Delight New Release

Have you heard... its only weeks to Christmas.  How on earth did this happen and where as another year gone.  

Today marks my first Scrappers Delight DT post on the New Release team, I was aptly nick named Gonzalous after making this card in simply record time.   I had the card base ready to go with papers inked up and just awaiting an image.  This is very non traditional but I love it, even if I do say so myself.  Isn't she just a delightful image.  She comes in three different styles.   This style is Deer 2.

Im playing in some new challenges this week, to support them as they are new or returning.  Please head over and check them out.   Everyone loves a new challenge blog right

& of course head over to the Challenge blog and play along with the current challenge of 
Paper Piecing or Anything Goes

And then I blinked

Im not sure I even got to tell you my exciting news that I was accepted as part of the Ppinkydolls New Release Design team.  Well no sooner had I been accepted and created a few cards that the challenge was closed down and the teams disbanded... disappointing yes, but life goes on.    I blinked and suddenly had more exciting news and was put on the Scrappers Delights and the Creative Fingers DT... talk about whiplash :)   I must admit it was nice to have another offer of DT as I find the social side of being on a DT fun.  That said, I want to make sure I still participate in my favourite challenges too.. sorry to say you may be in for a bit of card overload from my blog.

I thought I would share my card I made for the Ppinkydoll new release as I can see its being advertised in the shop now.   I have one other up my sleeve that i will share later in the month.

Thanks for visiting today and remember to be kind to one another, crafting is my release, my relaxation and it saddens me to think that those that love to craft may be feeling blue.   Must be time to send a friend or even a stranger a card today..  it would make their day Im sure xx
