Black and one... the theme at Hobbycutz Challenges this week, another nice easy one! We are sponsored by the amazing KennyK for this challenge and we were given some gorgeous images to play with. This is the fabulous Paige Parasol. The swirls and cogs are of course some of Kobie's beautiful laser cuts from Hobbycutz. These are so versatile and lovely to use. I have embossed these with black embossing powder which gives them a beautiful shiny finish.
We'd love to have you join in with our challenge this week, you do not need to use a Hobbycutz product to play, although we'd love it if you did!
Thanks for stopping by, Have a great week!

Glamour and Glitz

Good morning! The weekend is here and it's time for the latest challenge at Sweet Stampin' our theme this week is 'Glamour and Glitz' - a great reason to go wild with all the glitter and bling!
We are sponsored this week by My Mum's Craft Shop and our monthly sponsor is The Ribbon Girl.
My card is made using this vey glam image from Rick St Dennis. She's coloured with copics and glitterpens, cut out and mounted onto glitter paper. I couldn't get a vey good photo but I promise she's much more glittery in real life!

Anything goes at Hobbycutz!

Good morning! I'm back again with another very quick post, this time it's for Hobbycutz Challenges -and yes! it's everyone's favourite theme 'anything goes'! My card is made using the fabulous 'Marilyn', kindly supplied by our generous sponsor The Stamping Chef. She is coloured with copics, cut out and mounted over a beautiful Hobbycutz  frame, which is in turn mounted over an aperture cut into the front of the card. The frame and edges of the card are covered with gilding flakes. The lips are stamped and embossed onto the backing card .

I loved making this card! Thank you for visiting and I hope you'll take the time to visit Hobbycutz Challenges to see what the rest of the team have made! Our challenges our now weekly instead of fortnightly and we have some very talented new DT members, you will love what they have created. We would love to see your beautiful creations too, so go on , join in, what have you got to lose!?
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Feeling blue!

Good morning , and what a beautiful morning it is! The sun is shining , the sky is blue and I'm back at home! My brothers have been away on holiday and I've been 'Mum-sitting ' for a week. It was great to spend some time with my lovely Mum but it's so nice to be back at home! So I'm feeling happy, not 'blue' but over at Sweet Stampin' Challenge  this week the theme is 'Got the Blues' and this is my card for the challenge.
Hope you like it but got to rush now as husband has been busy while I was away.... floor replaced in lounge, redecorated but everything is upside down and covered in dust.... and I won't even start to tell you about the laundry that's waiting for me!
 Have a  lovely day!
