"Something Sweet"

Yahoo - the new mini starts today - and i got my pre-order delivered today too - so what better way to spend the night than to stamp, and as i needed a birthday card for tomorrow i just had to use the new set called "something sweet" - this is a very cool set, i think i will use this one lots.

I have been slack with my posts of late - but will endeavour to improve ( i think i said that in my last post hehehehe), but tis the silly season after all....... Hope everyone has a fab week, until next time..........

Makeesha's colour challenge #15

Hi, thought it was about time i did a challenge - it has been a while!!! I liked the colours this week, so took advantage of my Forest Friends stamp set that is about to retire and this is the first time i have used it........ i guess at least it has seen SOME ink...lol. This card seemed to take forever, i knew exactly what i wanted to do - but came together slowly - however - it's done and dusted now. I hope everyone has had a good Monday, hopefully i will be back during the week sometime.
Thanks for stopping by..........

Makeesha's Sketch Challenge #14

Hi there, I know it's been a while but i am now back with Makeesha's sketch this week- i enjoyed doing this one - it came together quickly and easy!!! (love it when that happens). I have used sweet slumber specialty with so saffron and riding hood red c/s, good friend and short and sweet stamps, and so saffron ribbon from the free ribbon bundles last month!!!!
YAY school goes back tomorrow - reality check - that means i go back to work - no more sleep ins and cruisy mornings for another 10 weeks, small price to pay i guess for a bit of normality again!!!! Hopefully i will be back during the week - i have a busy 2 weeks coming up so will see what i can fit in..... Thanks for stopping by and i hope everyone has a good week.

Makeesha's Inkspiration #11

Hello, i have been majorly M.I.A for the last couple of weeks, have had no time to stamp and haven't been in the mood!!!! But now i am back and will hopefully make up for lost time - anyway thought i would start with Makeesha's challenge, to me the colours looked grey and white so i have gone with whisper white and basic grey, using urban garden dsp and hostess dsp with petal pizzaz and best yet stamp sets!!! i tried sooo many times to ink up the big flower properly but it just would not play the game today so i had to make do with the best of a bad bunch. Well i had better fly - i have a huge basket of ironing waiting for me - i wish the ironing fairy would come and do it.... wishful thinking, thanks for stopping by.....

Me n Mi Stamps Monday project #1.

I loved Amy's project last monday, i had to go straight to the warehouse to see if she had left any pails there for me!!!! hehehe. It was good timing as i have just got a new nephew and wanted to do something different for his gift, as you can see he is called Sam, i went to pumpkin patch to get him some goodies (as ya do!!!) and they happened to fit in a middle size pail - i have used urban garden dsp and the cool choo choo stamp set and put a letter of his name in each carriage of the train, and on the top of the pail i have used All in the Family stamp set (thanks Trace).
I absolutely loved this project - thanks Amy - you have some fantastic ideas - you rock!!!!!
Be sure to check out Amy's blog each monday, thanks for the inspiration Amy :).
