 I know I didn't last long with my posting everyday  ha ha ha , so we shall see how I do this time , I do plan on blogging every day, but something always happens , and I clean forget......

Today I'd like to share with you my make I done on Friday night/Saturday Morning... My good friend Kath Muckypaws Halstead, asked if I wanted to do a project, via Facebook, well !!! I couldn't resist ha ha ,  so into my room I went, got my Tim Holtz book, and set too..... although I don't have all the things I needed, I had to improvise, ( all part of the fun lol), and a few hours later we finished, it was great fun.....

So this is my finished piece.... What do you think??

The Game

Evening Everyone..... Hope you've all had a great day....

I've been in my craft room  playing  hee hee  as you do !!

I have made a 8x8 , which I'm going  to enter into    ' The Game Challenge blog '   Which you can find at


The theme is   Punch Buggy.... if you go to the blog, they have a pic for you to download and use.... this is mine that I have done today.....

For this I used paper from my stash,      The pic from The Game Challenge blog .        The penny farthing is from    http://www.crafty-emblies.org/....

My next project is a fatpage, and this is for the Crafty-emblies Challenge blog... which you can find over at;


The theme is      Under The Sea.

This is my project .

For this one I have used, one of the 4x4 blocks from Crafty-Emblies, inked it with Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers disstress ink pad, and rubbed  Inca Gold, in silver around the edges, and then stamped the fish...

Thanks for taking the time to have a look , any comments are appreciated xx

Morning everyone..... Thanks for popping by....

Well it's another challenge over at Happy Campers, this fortnights theme is

Shabby Chic

You can find us at; 


You can make whatever you like as long as it is in keeping with the theme, and dont forget, over at Happy Campers, our idea is to have Fun.....
We  also have a swaps section, this is where you get to make an item and swap it with someone else, if your interested just go to the swaps section ( tag is at the top of the home page) and pop your e-mail in the comments, and I'll get in touch with you  with more details...    Why not pop over and have a wander round, we have other sections that might interest you....
Hope to see you soon..

Now for my project, This is a card I made for a very good friend , Cheryl, who was involved in  a nasty car accident, I sent her this card just to let her know that I'm thinking about her, and wishing her a speedy recovery.......

I used the Splodge-A-Mask,      Poinsetta
Tim Holtz Distress ink    Worn Lipstick
Viva Croco Crackling Colour   transparent.

First I worked the ink onto white card, through the splodge-A-Mask, then when they were dry, I put a thin layer of the Viva Croco Crackling Colour over the stencil, after pulling the stencil free, I left them to dry, then cut the flowers out, the crackling effect is great, it's a shame you can't see it in the pic..
Once dry, cut them out, and build up your flower, as you can see I've made 3, but you can make as many or as few as you want... I used some swirls from my stash.....

I hope Cheryl likes it.......

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to have a look.....

Magic Roundabout

I bet you all though I wasn't going to blog today... ha ha ha 

Well to be honest I nearly didn't, I've been working on a few things, but I can't really show you, as they are for different DT's   and they are not live as yet.... :(

But I have been working on a daft project, I almost feel to embarrassed to show you all....lol

Agh, go on them I'll show you, hee hee hee.....
I'm in a Facebook Group, and we have a fun challenge every night, whoever wins picks the theme for the next night, and the theme for tonight is
The Magic Roundabout..
Well!! you can imagine, that had me stumped,  lol.... hhhmmmmmm now, what could I do, Fear not, My CD's came to the rescue .......
I bought this CD ages ago, and on;ly ever used it once, and that was juts to try it lol..... But it saved me tonight ha ha ha ......
The finished ( well rushed to finish ) piece is Terrible, I would nt normally show it off, but Hey what the hell..
I know it's a mess, but it was for fun, and I just wanted to make something, when I have a bit more time, I might make it properly lol....Well here goes ha ha ha

It's meant to have horses on, but as you can see, I put the magic roundabout on it lol.....

Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog ... your all very kind xx

Well!!!   Here I am again, looking good so far, bolgging twice in 2 days ha ha ha.... 

I could 'nt sleep last night ( nothing unusual lol) so I decided to have a little play, as you do lol....
I have quite a few stamps that I keep saying are my fave ones,and this is one of them, I've used it quite a lot, on different things......   I decided to make a Fat page, but it looked odd as the stamp is more or less 4 inches, so have made a 5x5, I dont know if that size has a name, lol...... 

Well, here it is, I'm going to enter it into the following blogs;
