I need a good night's sleep.....................I have terrible trouble sleeping, and when I do sleep someone always wakes me, its nightmare. Well anyway life goes on even with 4 hours kip. Today's card is the card I made for my son's birthday............unsure of the papers, but love the funky effect. Hope you all have a good Wednesday and will be back with a peak of my desk.

football mad

Today's card was made specially for a brief was man's card for a Sunderland supporter. I dont really do football cards and didnt have much to choose from then I remember this little stamp from LOTV. I created the stripes on shirt and combined it with the sketch from LOTV challenge blog. Papers from MME butcher's twine, kraft, bit of bling and a punch from Stamp it up.

Thanks for looking, Angie x

something a bit different

I've struggled the last couple of weeks with my mojo, but this delicious stamp arrived this week from Lili of the Valley, its soooo very thought I'd try something a bit different, well different for me. I'm not sure about it, I think it a bit cluttered and maybe too many flowers. What do you think???

Playing with Scraps

Last week I saw Shimelles new sketch on her blog, so I got out an untouched Studio Calico kit...........then I thought I should really use scraps as this layout screamed little bits of scraps. We all have loads of bits left from larger pieces, how do you use your scraps????? Also this is the first I've used misting sprays...........I was a wee bit scared, as I didnt want to spoil the layout which by the way took me a few hours to scrap, as i'm such a slow scrapper.

Just a quickee this morning, thought I'd post card from my desk yesterday, using a fab set of stamps from Inkadinkadoo, I love this tulip one. I find I'm using lots of scraps but the pile isn't going down at all, so this weekend mission is to use more scraps as box is over flowing. 

and here its in a different colour combo, I'm sure I'll be making this card in many different colour combos

hoping to get a bit of scrapping done today as it's my day off, although lots of tidying and washing to do first.....hey ho the joys!!!

Happy Wednesday xxx

For sale

I have spend the last few days sorting through stash, and reorganising crafting area, its been a long hard slog. Lots of stuff still in packaging and never used, also lots of stuff I'll never use. I found a little pile of Studio Calico stamps most of them limited edition ones from previous kits, still in original packaging. So I've decided to list them on ebay in three different batches, so you might grab yourself a little bargain

Also I'll leave you with a fathers day cards using lili of the valley stamp and some very old crate papers

thanks for looking x
