Beautiful Dancer....

Hey! Me again!!
Two posts in one morning!
Ok so i'm up seriously early i can't sleep, doesn't help that i fell asleep on the sofa at 5pm last night lol! oh well! more time in the craftyroom today for me!!! :-)

I'm here this morning with my new maggie project which don't tell me off! I've had this stamp for yonks!!! and never used it! im so naughty!! but anyways.......

When i first laid this card out as i normally do all the backing papers first then find an image to go with my papers i was heading in the way of a male themed card hence the blue and green, but as you can tell that soon changed!! haha!!!

I'm loving these metal things not quite sure for the name of them all stampin' up call them hodgepodge but not quite sure myself... do you know???
I've gone for more bellies again today!!! :-) and i'm really getting the hang of this i love that you can create something that has so many 3d elements to it! Who's it for? well... it was meant to be a birthday card for the hubby but that changed as well! haha! so this one will be going on my shop i thinks!

Before i show you the rest of the card, i'd like to enter it to the following challenges:

Morning All!

How are we all today? So sorry i've not been around much this week! My Work is having a refit and we're the only Morrisons in the UK to have it done first, tooootal nightmare!!! hehe so i've been so busy with work and sleeping i've not had much time to blog! Though my free time i've had i've caught up on DT work and some creations i'll be sharing when i can get some daylight in!!

I love and adore this Tilda with star that was released at christmas and i don't think she's just for christmas! though my card has no sentiment today which is a rare thing for me so it can be for any occasion....
 I've dug out my pebbles inc chip shapes, have you ever read the back of the packet???? such a giggle and i only noticed today! hehe shows i really do impulse buy! I don't even look at the pack lol! I kept my card simples today as i wanted more shine and glitter but still have lots of stars!

I'd like to enter my card to the following challenges:

Seeing Tartan!

Morning all!
Can Hardly believe it's the 4th Feb already! it was mine and hubby's 4 years ago we met yesterday! hehe

Anyways I'm here this morning to let you know there's a brand new challenge at Crafty Catz, it's also a sad day too! as i've chosen to step down from Crafty Catz for personal reasons, mainly because i don't feel i can commit 100% to them at the moment i have sooooo many things to do right now I will miss the girlies tho!!!

'Tartan / Plaid'

When i first saw this challenge i was like OH MY GOD!! What am i going to do???????
Then with the help of my trusty Basic grey pad's I remembered the Jovial pad from christmas had a lovely pattern in it! So here's what i came up with!

I love cris-cross cards and don't really make enough of them! I wanted to keep my card simple to show off as much of the DP as possible! and of course i had to use my gorjuss whiff of joy city girl! i adore this stamp i think she's one of my favourite WOJ's!

Here's the card when put together...


*C/stock - Stampin' Up! Real Red & Basic Black
*DP - Basic Grey Jovial
*Flower from stash
*Sentiment - LOTV
*Stamp - Whiff Of Joy City Girl
*Medium - Copic Markers / Promarkers
*Ribbon from stash

Thanks for stopping by today and i hope to see you at the challenge!!
