All or Nothing....

Hello there,

Happy Saturday....I hope you've had a lovely week.....I didn't think mine was ever going to end!

This week we have a fab new challenge for you at Sweet's an "all or nothing" challenge so we either want to see your creations with no layers at all....or lots of layers!

The card I am sharing with you was created for Joe for Valentines.....

Not your average Valentines card I know!

Joe and I have a gorgeous pair of cats called Steve and Tinker, and some how I've managed to convince Joe that it's his job to deal with all the messy things in poo included! He thought this card was very funny when I presented it to him during our romatic Valentines meal and was impressed that I actually drew poo on a card!

I kept it nice and simple for this card and stamped my cat images and the paw prints directly onto the card blank. I coloured them with my Promarkers (trying and failing to make them look like Steve and Tinker) and then added the handwritten sentiment (and poo) onto the card in pen.

Now if I'm honest I wasn't sure how my lovely Sweet Stampin teamies would feel about having poo on the just in case I also made a lots of layers card.....

As well as the card blank, I have used a layer of black, a layer of patterned paper and a layer of white card before adding my stamped coffee mug. I have added a stamped sentiment and some faux white stitching to finish the card.

For more "all or nothing" inspiration pop by the Sweet Stampin challenge blog and take a peek at the gorgeous DT cards that have been created.

I can make anybody pretty.....

Hello there,

Happy Saturday! I hope you are keeping well!

Well, I wonder if there are any country fans out there now humming a certain song to themselves? Shall we try another couple of lines....

I can make you believe any lie
I can make you pick a fight 
With somebody twice your size

Anyone who knows me and my sister will know that we are big Brad Paisley fans and when I saw the challenge theme at Sweet Stampin this week I knew I'd find inspiration from Brad! Our theme is....."inspired by a song".

Anyone who knows me will also know that I have a little bit of a thing for a glass of can give me a lovely glass of Prosecco....or even better a glass of champagne and I am a happy girl! Bubbles are always special.....and make for a lovely Birthday treat....

I have gone with a red and brown colour combo, along with that fab polka dot paper. Those polka dots remind me of my favourite tipple!

I have coloured my image with my Promarkers and then added some sparkle to the glasses and the polka dots.....because everyone should sparkle on their Birthday!

So does anyone know the song yet??

It's ALCOHOL by of his most famous songs and the way he likes to end his live shows. Everyone sings loudly (and badly) and sways along! Its brilliant fun!

Only Words!

Hello there,

Happy Wednesday! I hope you are having a fab week!

Today I have a lovely new Christmas challenge for you from the team at Christmas at Sweet Stampin...this month we want to challenge you to put those images away and use words only on your Christmas cards!

You still need a stamp of some kind on your creation....whether its a digi or a traditional stamp....but it must only be words! Now I know if you are like me you will find this somewhat challenging....

Do you know how difficult it was not to slap some digi holly leaves on this card??

I have gone with a very traditional red and green Christmas colour theme, to match my holly inspired sentiment from Digi Stamp Boutique. I have added white faux stitching to the edge and a little sparkle on the sentiment with my red Stickles (well you can't beat a bit of sparkle!).

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