Getting Punchy!

Afternoon all!

Thought i'd pop by this afternoon and share a couple of cards i've made recenetly but not had chance to blog!
Things are a little hetic at the moment in my craftroom i've serveral projects on the go from cards, to colouring digi's to making a photo album, to project life to smash* i've got a right little mix going on in there and as usual it looks like a bombs hit the room haha! But i love the fact i can close the door and come back and it's all where i left it! hehe

My first card today is my stary card! I love these little layered cards with minimal supplies used there great for using up scraps of paper or cardstock On my star card i've used up some scraps of MME papers i've had for yonks along with a beautiful sizzix embossing board which i seriously neglect hehe! The stars themselves are a star 1inch punch i brought a few NEC shows ago for the bargain price of £1! not bad even if ya only use it once hehe

On my second card i used my EK Success flower punches which i love i do actually have 3 different sizes but only used two on this card along with some scraps of cosmo cricket delovely papers which i've had for again yonks and never used hehe the embossing folder is one i think from papermania tho don't quote me, i should really keep packaging but i'm terrible for re-arranging stuff in my craftroom and not keeping things in there original homes hehe! opps! 
On both cards i've used the gorjuss swirly text sentiments stamps from craftwork cards!

That's all for today folks! i'll be back at the end of the week with more project life and other things to share! have a fabulous week!

Thanks for stopping by! xoxo

Morning all!

This week's challenge at Charisma is Anything Goes... my kinda challenge which i've set! I love seeing all the different entry's from all the wonderful crafters out there! It's been a super busy week for me, with not having much sleep i've been work work work and no fun, so my day off today is going to be a creative one! yippppiieee!

I've been playing with one of my favorite Penny Black stamps ever! mainly because it's a cat but i remember the first time i saw this stamp and i fell in love with it so typical of my cats haha!

I've coloured him up using distress markers which i'm loving at the moment! If you've not tried them seriously think about adding them to your ever growing pen collection! 

Here's my card!

The papers are the gorjuss Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection which i absolutely love!!! Pearls which I've had from the NEC from Meiflower  added some glitz with stickles and used a dear Lizzy matching ''adore'' banner along with some american crafts ribbons which i love because they go so well with not just one collection of paper but alot of the AMC brands!
