Glitter-tastic Snowflakes

Stampin Up Festive Flurry


Using the sketch from In{k}spireMe.

TimeOut want Christmas with pink/purple.

ChristmasCardChallenges have 'anything goes' and

It's RudolphDay over at Scrappymo's.



Opened up a new super sparkly tub of glitter for this card.

Gorgeous it is.

Just the thing to for festive cards.

My desk is now also looking very festive.

Glitter, stars and mini hexagons, holographic & silver ... Everywhere ...



Birthday Candles

Uniko Studio


I'm on a roll now

Second card for UnikoStudio's geometric challenge.

Circles this time - I do like to ring the changes ;)

And another for LessIsMore's masculine challenge

Happy Friday everyone ...


Geometric Masculine Birthday

Stampin Up Amazing Birthday, masculine cards, CAS cards



LessIsMore wants masculine cards.

UnikoStudio wants geometric designs with the added twist of circles/squares/triangles.



Half term is just around the corner ...

Timing heh?!




Watercolour Thoughts

Stampin Up, Happy Watercolor

Using the SketchSaturday sketch.


The sentiment is from the Wetlands stamp set; I do like the sweeping font paired with the simple font.

I dug out my pastel crayons (sadly now retired) for some meditative colouring in with my aqua brush.


Hope your day is going well.



Sparkling Merry Christmas

Stampin Up Snow Place, Christmas cards


WinterWonderland want to see Christmas with ribbon.

AddictedToCas want sparkle.





Christmas definitely equals sparkle for me!

I've dusted off all my Christmas stash & oohed and aahed at all the things I'd forgotten I'd had.

Like this DSP from last year, now liberally dotted with Dazzling Details glitter and adorned with Silver Glimmer paper.

Roll on half term. One day and counting ...



Washi Butterfly

Stampin Up Butterfly Thinlits



The ButterflyChallenge wants embossing.

Allsorts don't want to see any designer papers.

CreativeInspirations want CAS and

CASonSunday want washi tape.

If you look (very carefully!) you should be able to make out the very subtly embossed background. I love this effect - just enough to give a little interest.

Off to walk the dog - with warm anorak firmly zipped up!

I don't like the cold. At all!




Sending Wishes your Way

Stampin Up Framelits



LessIsMore want jewel colours and

AAAcards want the focus to be on the words.




And in the wink of an eye it seems, that's the end of another working week!

Hope your weekend was good!

Stampin Up Mini Treat Bag, Hallowe'en Treats

A little fun project to hide a Hallowe'en Treat in!
