Guest Designer for Splitcoaststamper Color Challenge - Week 2

My 2nd week with the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge and I went for a colourful and slightly crazy card using a flower stamp from Chocolate Baroque.





I chose to incorporate the grey with just the ink I stamped it and used the other colours to the max.

This weeks colours are Granite, Mango and Razzleberry.


Hope you find time to play along

Guest Designer for Splitcoaststamper Color Challenge

For the remainder of January I get to be a guest designer for the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge.

You can find this weeks challenge here

As the colours this week are silver, powder pink and red and the dessert option is hearts I decided it would be a good time to make a valentine card. My image is a digital one from Graciellie Designs and my valentine sentiment is from Power Poppy. 


Thanks for looking and have a great week

1st 2019 Christmas Card

I combined a few challenges and made my first 2019 Christmas card.

I used CC720 this week's colour challenge, TLC723 this week's technique challenge to stamp with an embossing folder and CCC19Jan to add some bling to our January Christmas cards - pearlescent paper and gems!


Happy New Year and here's to a healthy and creative one.

Sienna's 1st Birthday

Our little lady in the family turned one this week and our niece Lauren with her partner Nick organised a birthday tea for their daughter Sienna yesterday.

I made her a frame for her bedroom using the LOTV alphabears and we have a toy box on order.

Here are a few photos

Colouring again

I moved a few things off the left hand side of my craft room counter this week so I could have my laptop there as well as my colouring and a bag of Copics.

I signed up some while back to the Kit and Clowder colouring classes which I find challenging but enjoyable. I don't always find time to do the free classes we get each month but try to keep up with the others. I failed in July and August so when the September class arrived a week or so ago I knew it was time to at least get the August underwater one done.

Here is the result of my colouring


I am now working on something else for a 1st birthday and trying to get some other birthday cards made so the September class has to wait for a while.

Thanks for looking and have a great new week.

Craft Room refresh and Christmas cards

 Colour has been going on me and my walls recently rather than on paper and card. Having tidied and reorganised I decided to paint and replace the flooring, the window blind and the chair. It is a small room but I have done my best with the space until I throw some things out! The walls aren't in a great state - 1930s plaster not at its best but at least with new paint they look better.

View towards the street - trying to organise!

 This week's task was to sort the Christmas cards I have been making all year and get greetings stamped into them. That was all done yesterday so today I made another card.

Today's card was made using Splitcoaststampers challenge SC714 and a Card-IO stamp set.
All 194 Christmas cards waiting for an inside greeting - managed to get them all done yesterday
