I will be back...

Hi Guys,
Just wanted to let you all know that I am still around but have a lot going on at the minute including my first Obstacle course race this weekend. I am doing Tough mudder North west with my brother.
Very excited, bit nervous but can't wait. It's been taking up a lot of head space so hopefully next week I may feel a bit more free.

Will keep you posted,

Make your own backing paper- ILPM Challenge

Hi guys,
This post was meant to go out yesterday but I am a total div, thought I had finished and scheduled it .....but I hadn't....duh!!! This is Rusty from Squigglefly. He is just so good to colour. I gave him a big shiny hooter and his collar and ball have some glossy accents too. I used a few Pro's to colour him and he was pretty much made in 20 mins and that included making my own backing paper which I made with a Die-namics stamp and tumbled glass distress inks.
He has a few pearls and goodies from Chelsea's cheeky fimo charms and he was good to go.
So make your own backing paper and head on over to the new challenge at I LOVE PROMARKERS!!!

Photo inspiration at I love Promarkers


Morning,
The new challenge is just starting over at I love ProMarkers. It's Photo inspiration and here it is
I tried to use colours as close as possible. I loved making this card. The image was a freebie from Kenny K a while back but you can get it Here!

I have used a mix of papers and the ribbon was from Baker ross. They sent me a big bag of goodies which I have been playing with on lots of projects. The ribbon has a really nice quality to it.
The flowers are wild orchid crafts, a marianne die cut swirl and there are some bits and bobs from my craft shop.
I hope you pop over and take part as there is a prize from Polkadoodles up for grabs,

Anything but a card- Milkcoffee challenge

Morning,
The weather has changed here(as they said it would) rain, rain and more rain but after the last few days of gloious sunshine the garden probably does need it.
Anyways.....today is the new challenge at Milkcoffee and its Anything but a card. I have done a tag using the Oh so cute Charlotte with flowers. She was lovely to colour in and I used my pro's for that.
The papers are Santoro Mirabelle from Trimcraft. The flowers are Wild orchid crafts as are the lilac gems. The glitter is from Baker Ross and the die cuts were freebies from dies to die for and the other blingy bits and lace were from my stash.
It was quite nice to not make a card for a change :)
I really do need some practice with my photo cube. I had it for Christmas and hardly use it. Thats a project for this summer I think :)
Anyhow dont forget to show us your creations...You have 2 weeks and could win some great Milkcoffee digi stamps.

My latest obsession

Hi Guys,
Just popping in to say Hi. Hopefully I will get to your blogs tomorrow. I have been busy with orders and my new hobby of takeaway Indian cooking. I made this for my mum and dad's tea tonight. Chicken Madras and homemade Naan bread....


I had to collect my daughter at 8pm tonight from her college as she had been at Crufts today. She had a great time but her feet were aching off :)
I dropped this at my Mums on the way to get her and when I got back I had this for my supper. It was delish...Mine was a garlic naan, madras, poppadoms and mango/onion chutneys.
Off to watch a bit of TV now before I go to bed,

Just a quick stop this morning as I have tons to do. What are you guys doing with your Saturday?
I am cleaning, card making and cooking :)
Todays card uses Alyssa from Digistamp boutique. I have used her a few times and is great for birthdays!

I used First edition Daydreamer papers and a bunch of dies from MFT, Marrianne and Spellbinders.
I coloured her with my Pro's as per usual.
Have a great day!

Tiddly inks- Happy Bee Day

Evening,
It's a late one from me. Hope you are all good and getting on with your New year makes.
I have been busy doing cards today and this is one I made...
I have used Happy bee day and coloured her with my Pro's.
There is quite a bit of glamour dust on her wings and also on the cutie little bumble bee.. I got the papers on sale the other day from TK Maxx (They had some proper bargains!!) Think they are Dear Lizzy but can't recall at the min.. The die cut hearts were another freebie from the fabby Tracy at Dies to die for. She popped it in with my last order. :)
Night Night,

Celebrations DT post - Milkcoffee

Hi Guys,
Hope you all had a fabby Christmas and New years.
Back to the everyday now though eh?
Todays card (a little late in posting, sorry) is my DT card for Milkcoffee. They have a new challenge which is  Celebrations. So that's New years, birthdays, births (anything really). No excuse not to take part and you can join in here
I have used little girl partying and coloured her with Promarkers. All the papers etc were from my stash. I followed the new sketch over at Sketch saturday but reversed it :)

Cheers for looking and I will pop over to you blogs later,
