Thanks for looking.

If prizes were on offer for last minute cards I think I might be a serious contender for the top spot. lol I really like this sketch because it works either very simply like mine (did you notice I said 'mine' and not 'me' :)) of fully decorated like a lot of the other entries. So, this is Debbie's sketch for the Sketch Saturday challenge
Promarkers sketch #25
I decided all of a sudden this morning that I needed to make a red and white card........and ended up making three. I really like all three of them especially the second one below so I might just have to use it for my own Christmas cards. I was going to use a few which had been left over from last year but I think I may have changed my mind....woman's perogative? :))
Another quick card which was part of an order, this it's an engagement card. My friend Jo came over on Monday and gave me a couple of sheets of SU paper and it is absolutely stunning! I think I may just have to invest in that when I next order ;) Very occasionally I cut into a sheet of paper when I first got it and this was one of those occasions, it just screamed at me to be used. For information purposes only.....the other sheet and the rest of this one will not now see the light of day for a while lol

The new challenge is now live on the DewDrop Craftz blog and this is what Nikki had to say "This months challenge is to make a creation which interprets the following..

This time the card is for the challenge on the Passion For Promarkers blog. the colour combo for this challenge are Grass and Canary.......not quite grass and a canary, more like a frog and a lily pad, boom boom :))

I loved this image and it screamed Sizzix frog at me!! The image is part of a flower set sent to me a couple of weeks ago by Nikki from DewDrop Craftz and is one of the new Digiz sets recently added to the site. Don't forget to check out the new challenge which goes up on Tuesday.
I don't usually get involved with controversy on my blog but this evening just made my blood pressure rise somewhat! Was Mr Cowell unfair this evening? I think so, I certainly don't think Lucie deserved to go at all, I think she has a lovely voice, has been consistent all the way through and seems to be a really nice girl and that's all I will say, read into it what you will LOL. I shouldn't even have an opinion as I'm one of the ones who don't vote until the final :( I love young Joe and Olly though :)
That's it, I'm down off my soap box now so onto a brighter note......my dear, darling beloved hubby has only gone and booked to take us back to New York in March :) We found when we went this year the three days just wasn't long enough to see what we wanted to see (DD could've spent three days in Macy's if I'd let her!) so we are going again at the end of March but this time we are going for FIVE days.....woo hoo!!
Right o, I have some work to finish before I hit the sack so I will see you soon. Sleep tight and thanks for looking. xx
coming to town!!
These cards have gone down a storm this year, everyone who sees them just loves them. They are called Flippin' Christmas by La Pashe
and everything else from stash
I've got another couple to do so will probably be back with them at some point :)
Sketch # 27
Good morning from a wet and miserable Sunday in Scruff's Corner!
I've worked my little (well alright, large) butt off this week and am back to working into the night to keep on top. For the first time since I've been in business, I still have wedding orders coming in. Up until this year, they have died off about October and started agin in January which has given me a clear run at Christmas goodies. I have a jewellery party booked, another shop interested in my jewellery and loads to do for Christmas so will be burning the midnight oil well into December me thinks. I love my job and still, after five years, take it as a great compliment that people are prepared to part with their hard earned cash to buy my work. I feel so lucky to be able to sit every day and get paid for a job I adore :)
So, onto the challenge, I love the simplicity of Dawn's sketches, they definitely suit my style. I love clean and simple lines and much as I try, I can't seem to manage cluttered or shabby chic......I think it's a classic case of if it ain't broke, don't fix it!! :)

Thanks for looking.
Well not quite, it's far too energetic for a Sunday morning (it's actually too energetic for any time lol) but I have just made a card to enter into three challenges so I'm sure I qualify :)) My three challenges are:
Passion For Promarkers......Right onto this week’s challenge, which has been chosen by Helen. You can use any colours this week, but Helen would like to see animals somewhere on your creations.
Colour Create.......Okay, Okay, there is no picture. Why? because the colours Heather picked is ALL WHITE. So we'd like to see your makes with colour on the image only.
Penny Black Saturday challenge.....White on White Now its not as difficult as you think and after a little panic.....I'm sure your all going to love this one.... as we all did. We'd like to see your creations in WHITE....WHITE papers, WHITE embellishments - the only colour we want to see is on your image.
I put the numbers into Random Number dot org (but couldn't figure out how to show it on here! lol) and the number which came out was lucky seven, so the winner is.................Weewiccababe. If you want to email me your address Debs, I will get the goodies sent off to you.
I will be putting another candy up shortly so watch this space!
