Following the sketch over at PTW, I came up with this card. The lovely Jill sent me a sheet of stamps from Buzz Craft, and this is the first chance I have had to play with them.
Yahoo !! one more day at work then 4 days off to relax without the hassle of Christmas... time to catch up with a few friends I haven't seen in a few weeks.

Summery Anya!

Today is "Tracy Day" in this house. It is where I have done 2 loads of dishes, two loads washing, pruned roses, now I am doing what ever I like!!! So I have made this card for the Anyone for Anya challenge. I have a couple of good books to read so I plan on settling down to a nice quiet afternoon.

Last chance!!!

Yep, with Christmas Eve tomorrow, this was my last chance to sit down and play. I got this image from Instyle Stamps who have some great girlie images. I followed their sketch and did this summery card.
If I don't get a chance before Christmas (which is not likely), I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and thank you for sharing your comments and visiting me and my blog.

This image is from the Stamping Boutique. If you like her, head over and take a look at all the other images.... there is some super sweet images ready for Valentines day!!! Yep.. I'm skipping Christmas and thinking ahead!! LOL

Copic Buzz - RED

This stamp was one of my very first stamps. I was put off by its size, so this is the first time I have inked it and I have had it for 4 years!!! Over at Copic Buzz they want you to colour something red, hopefully theres enough red in it!

A Spoon Full of Sugar

I have been having card withdrawals, so last night I coloured 3 different images with the same coloured copics and are using the same paper... is this cheating???

2 challenges 1 card

Yep, I am trying to get a smidge of time to myself during this hectic month. The kids have got something on everyday, including Sat and Sun!!!. So to make it easier during that little window of craft time I have combined two challenges to make one card. ... Basic Grey Challenge - Pink, Blue and Cream, and a Get Sketchy sketch.
Right I am off to work on my DT cards for Doodle Palace. My stint there is almost up, and I will be sad to leave, I have found it really enjoyable and loved being part of a team.

Doodle Palace - new image release

It seems like a long time between image releases this round. Isn't this trio of bears so cute... and the beauty of digi images is that you can make as big or small as you like! I really enjoyed relaxing (see Kate, I can relax!!) while cutting out their PJ's. You can find these images over at Doodle Palace. Go see the other fantastic work the DT princesses have done.

The Sugar Bowl

I am not at all happy about this card. I followed a sketch from The Sugar Bowl. The sketch is great but I think its the colours that I dont like.

Scrap Fest!!

Yesterday a group of us got together and had a relaxing day card making and scrapping. This is what I did.
I am not sure what my style is, I do struggle with headings and writing... I tend to leave these for a few days then add. I must say I am glad I have girls so I can us yummy prima flowers, paper and bling.
All three are 100% Prima, the first one is of Cameron, second is of Cameron again... which I must admit I scrap lifted from the Prima website, and third is my beautiful mum.

(yes I have got another girl.... and I tend to scrap her all the time, which is why I decided to do a few of cam!) LOL

Oh... and ... everthing you see can be bought at Crafty Tart.

Pollycraft Christmas

I have decided that I am having a very Pollycraft Christmas this year! Just about all of my Christmas cards are digi images from Pollycraft!
This card fits in well with Basic Grey challenge where you have to use BG (paper) and follow sketch, also Allsorts challenge - to use buttons, and lastly The Pixie Cottage - faux stitching.

Anyone for Anya??

I haven't joined in on the Anyone for Anya challenge for a while, so thought I'd better show my face there since half my stamps are Miss Anya stamps! I love this Bo Bunny paper... so vibrant.! This is also my first attempt at lollipop flowers.
