Ribbon I Love you!

Morning all!

It's that time of week once again!

A Brand new challenge at Charisma!!!

This week's challenge is all about RIBBON! it's my DT & Buddy Emma's challenge she's totally addicted to ribbon and her addiction doesn't just stay in her craftroom it got me addicted and then i got Gemma bitten by the ribbon bug too! so watch out!!!

I had some really funky ideas for my DT project this week unfortunatly time wasn't on my side so i went simple! and finally got my kraft cardstock back out!! and in use!! and i'm really not happy with this weeks creation at all! so not me and so out of my comfort zone and just no not me!! 

I cut a cute heart out of one sheet and placed various ribbons on underneath and edged with a white gel pen! followed with a love you sentiment in the corner and some sweet little buttons (something i dont use alot of)

Have you noticed something... an entire card made with no stamping!!! OMG what's going on! i think i may be ill!!!! 

Hope to see you over at the challenge this week we have some fabulous sponsors as always!!

Thanks for stopping by! xoxo

Perfect Day...

Morning all!

I'm here with a brand new creation a little something new from me this week, i'm one to stick to 6x6 cards so i challenged myself to go a little big i must admit i did struggle but i enjoyed the challenge!

Talking of challenges it's a brand new one this week at

This week's theme is

Spring Colours!
so lots of scope there! and as always a fabby prize up for grabs!

I've used this gorjuss Saturated Canary Digi today from the very talented Krista Smith! I've seen alot of facebook comments over the past few months how people have been ripping off her images as there own and i must say my own personal view of this it's awful Krista puts her heart and soul into these gorjuss images and for someone to take them change them a little and sell them as there own it's terrible and more so shame on the people who buy them! there is NOTHING like the original! and i love Krista's work so i will continue to support her!!

Anyway rant over! i love this one kinda reminds me of me when i was little with the big boots and umberella so typical me as a little girl! 

I've coloured her with promarkers! yay i'm getting good with those pens now! there's not much i can't master hehe well... i tend to bury my head in sand for ages over a new technique then one day i get up and go for it! so im mastering pleates at the moment (not shown on this pic) but i'm getting there! i love these pens there just so nice to colour with!

So yeah! I went for 8x8 in the end jeesssseee that was hard but i love the end result! I've used some fab craftwork cards papers i have for christmas in a secret santa which i love and look CANDY!!! i have so much of this stuff but never use it!!! lol terrible!!!

anyways i'll leave ya with the end piccy hope to see you at the challenge!

My Cats!!!

Morning all!!
Yep i'm here with a brand new project i was working on yesterday ok so i got abit carried away and really went for a zingy feeling with my latest scrapbook page! which if you haven't guessed is all about...

My Cats!

I never used to like the concept of 12x12 scrapping as it quite scared me being so big but over the last few weeks and a month or so i've really started to enjoy it more! And i've found that if i take my time i can produced some ace layouts today's layout is actually a trial one as i wasn't sure how or what it'd come out like but i really like it! So bright and funky just like me! 

I've used sooooo many rolls of washitapes on todays project i'm actually at 121 rolls now i think i'm addicted! but its so fun and there's so many uses! be sure to follow my blog as i'll have lots of washi tape projects coming up! Todays project is using mostly washi tapes i've had from washitapes.co.uk Have you seen there range??! O...M...G!!! You must go have a peek there fabulous!!! 

Ok so basically i used lots and lots of different tapes on a plain white bazzill basic cardstock on both sides and found this wonderful 'my cat' embellishment i brought last week at QVC i think it's from Karen Fosters range i love it anyway! I have two cats as most of you know so i had to change cat to cats! so i used one of the american crafts slanty fonts thickers for the 'S' kinda gives it a quicky feel i think! hehe

I used Karen fosters same range of stickers for the paw prints on my LO and also some rik rac hearts which i brought from a friend a couple of weeks back! the pink stripy ribbon on the 'm' wasn't actually there i put that on there as it had a hole for a loop i think that ribbon was from a local market i can't actually remember lol!

I even tried my had at stitching onto the card and LO which omg! why have i never done that before??? well that's something new for me i tell ya!

I shall leave you with the whole page now! don't forget to pop by Washi-tapes!!!
