Just for Men...

Hello there,

Happy Saturday! It's the weekend at long last! It's been a really busy week this week, which found me in Nottingham, Swindon and also London. I am shattered and really glad that it's the weekend!

I'm back with another challenge for you from Sweet Stampin and this week Team Abi have a challenge for you that normally leaves me feeling really rather cold! Yes, its that "just for men" theme that I dislike as it tends to mean I have to steer clear of the pinks and purples in my paper stash. However, this time I have to say that I am actually quite pleased with my card and I might even go as far as saying I enjoyed making it!

Shock horror!! Here it is....

As you can see I have gone with a brown and blue colour combo for my masculine card and I have stamped a hand of cards. I must admit I added a little faux stitching which I suppose is a little girly, but overall I think it's a very masculine looking card!

For more masculine inspiration (cards not men!!) pop by the Sweet Stampin challenge blog and take a peek at Team Abi's DT cards. While you are there you can also take a peek at our fab sponsor this week.....

Thanks for popping by today,

Seeing spots....and stripes!

Hello there!

I hope you're well today and have had a good week!

Today I'm back with a new challenge from Sweet Stampin and this week we want to see your cards featuring spots and stripes.

I have opted for a black and white colour combo for this card with a splash of blue.....

I have used Promarkers to colour the image and Stickles to add a little sparkle to the bubbles! 

For more spots and stripes inspiration pop by the Sweet Stampin challenge blog and take a peek at the fab DT cards that Team Abi have created this week.

Christmas Critters!

Hello there,

Welcome back to my little blog, I hope you are well and are having a fab week!

I celebrated Christmas 2013 (yes you read that correctly!) last Friday with Lorna and my friend Becca. We hadn't got around to having our Christmas dinner (despite seeing each other on other occasions!) and so decided to go all out. We had dinner at Becca's house and then ventured out to the local pubs.....

Yes, we are wearing our Christmas jumpers and are armed with crackers! Hee, hee!

Anyway, onto the reason for this challenge - we have a fab new challenge for you over at Christmas at Sweet Stampin! This month we'd like to see your Christmas creations featuring Christmas Critters!

My mum loves sheep - it's her thing! So when I saw this fab digi stamp I knew I had to buy also fits in with our theme really well......

I have coloured my cute little Christmas sheep with my Promarkers and added rather a lot of sparkle with my Stickles! I have then run with a green colour scheme - using both plain and patterned papers. Finally I have added the wonderfully themed sentiment!

For more Christmas Critter inspiration pop by the Christmas at Sweet Stampin challenge blog to take a peek at the wonderful DT cards that have been created. While you're there you can also take a peek at our fab sponsor this month....

I'd also like to enter this card at the following:

Papertake Weekly - repeat, repeat (repeated holly pattern)
