SCSC ~ Borders and Flowers

This weeks challenge at Secret Crafter is 'Borders & Flowers'

I have used another one of my Teddy Bea digi stamps, coloured with Promarkers and Prisma pencils.
The border has been made with the MS Cherish punch, flowers are from Wild Orchid.
The papers are Bits of Ivory from Cuddly Buddly as is the lovely sentiment.

I am also entering my card into the Teddy Bo Challenge this week, which is Christmas but Red and Green must not been seen. I have so wanted to join in with this challenge but don't seem to find the time to craft any more, either that or i am to lazy lol....

Hope you all have a lovely weekend xx

A Sketch ~ SCSC

Morning a very quick post from me this morning, as I am chasing my tail again lol..This week on Secret Crafter we have a sketch to follow, I do love a sketch. (I will fill you in on all the details when i return from work after 7pm, then a night in front of the TV for me I think) There is still no news on the baby but I will let you know if anything happens.

The papers are from Craft Creations. I printed the letters out on the PC and coloured them in with Promarkers. The flourish die is by Making Memories they have some lovely dies out at the moment, the only tricky bit is sticking them down as they are quite fine. I cut the flourish out then cut it so I could position it in this way, in fact think they where left over from a previous project.

Skiing SnowBuddy

This Little Skiing Snowbuddy is a download from Cuddly Buddly by Karen Middleton, they are just great for a nice quick Christmas card. I am so behind with my Christmas cards once again this year, I think I have loads of time then before I know it December is here.
The papers are also digi downloads they are Toby Tumbles Christmas papers from Pachela Studios , which are soft pastel colours. I have kept my card quite plan and simple with not a lot of embellishments, making for a very plain and simple card.
Have a lovely evening and enjoy watching Children In Need on the BBC, the news readers are always my favourites. What are yours? Remember to pop back tomorrow for my SCSC xx

SCSC~ Flowers,Ribbon & Lace

This is my first week as a design team member at Secret Crafter.
The challenge this week is Ribbon, Flowers & Lace, quite easy really as we all have these items in our stash lol.. This lovely wee stamp is a sugar Nellie stamp called 'Candy Pip' isn't she sweet? This is the first time I have inked her up, shame on me. The papers are from Nitwits 'Bumbleberry Too' which are such pretty pastel coloured papers, printing out beautifully.

Well I had best dash as I am in work today 10-7 then off to my Son's for the weekend, wouldn't it be nice if the baby decided it was going to be this weekend he/she made an appearance :) 

Have a good Bonfire night , stay safe

This months challenge is to make an easel card and here is mine made with a LOTV die cut.

I am mega excited this month as my first grandchild is due. We don't know if it s a girl or a boy so its a little surprise, I must admit a little girl would be lovely (especially as I had two boys) but as long as everything is OK I don't really mind :) Will keep you posted.
