Yep, anything with stars on.  We are so looking forward to seeing you creations and I'm hoping that I may inspire you now! 

I don't know when or where I brought the paper I have used for this challenge - but it was perfect! 

I used some glitter card from my stash and mounted the paper onto it

When making my card I was singing 'twinkle twinkle'… yep mad I know but then it inspired me to write this little verse that is on the front of the card. 

I thought it fitted very well! I die cut the wording and then brushed the edges with one of my ink pads.  

I hope you like my card! I would like to enter this card to the following challenges;

Big Smiles for Candy!!!

Good Morning! brrr chilly day again today - staying in where its warm for as long as I can! Hope to do some house work and then craft away for a while! So how are you today?! Im here to share with you a 'early' creation from Simply B stamps!  Now this set is no longer available as digi but I know they will be available as rubber… soon! This is the cute Little Bat Ali I just LOVE that face! 

Now as I said this is one that I made a while back - when I was first getting into halloween - so glad she is still here! Keep looking at her and thinking how I have moved on since then even! 

The image was coloured with copics and the papers - well I'm not sure where they are from.  The die cut was created using my TH die that I brought just for halloween! Well I thought I would share her rather than leaving her in a box to be forgotten about and never blogged! 

Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you again soon!

Morning! I think I am getting towards the end of playing catch up and having more time to play! My goodness have I been a butterfly recently! I don't know how but I have achieved quite a bit (and even managed to do the house work!) 

So A couple of weeks ago there was a FAB release from Simply B Stamps! now its a Limited Edition release so you need to get over there pretty quick to snap it up - they retire 27th September  2012! 

I would like to introduce to you Bride of Chrisenstein Betty 

She is SOOOOO Lush! I enjoyed ever moment of colouring her.  She was coloured with copics 

Sink and dots - YG000, YG03, G97, G99
Dress - W1, W2, W3, W4, W5

Im really getting into colouring green skin - a few weeks ago it was something I never thought I would tackle and I didn't really want to - but I thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait to try different combos now! 

The papers are all from EP Chillingsworth Manor - Available here and the red netting is from a very good friend of mine! I can't wait to use more of it on other creations! I also used some Memento Bamboo Leaves around the edges of the papers after distressing them with my SU distressing tool. 

I hope you like my creation - remember you only have until 27th September 2012 to grab these digs

Before I go I would like to enter this card to the following challenges;

Ok so onto the card this is using one of the FAB releases from Simpy B Stamps - now there are only 6 days left to get these before they will be discontinued!!! Quick grab them while you can!! ! 

Last week while sat at my grandmas I had one of the 'light bulb' moments! you know sat there - not thinking about crafting at all and then 'PING' so I had to get home as quickly as I could! I had coloured the image up the night before and I suddenly had an idea that he should move!! 
What a better way for a snowboarder to move than down hills??

Yep - not quite sure what you would call this style of card… but he is on a piece of invisible string and he moves about! I think he took longer to cut out than he did to put together!  I think this card was mostly inspired by the challenge over at Simply Challenged Challenges!

I also pulled out the good old quickutz…  oh I'm so glad I didn't sell it a few weeks ago! It has been so useful recently! Well I hope you like him! I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges;

Two Hearts

Gooood Morning… Oh man I'm on a roll! Had a strange weekend - productive but not so at the same time! LOL - so I started on a card and then became stuck… and so was the card! and this morning it just came to me! 

This is the beautiful Lavinia Outgoing from the Classic Collection Steampunk's 2  from Simply B Stamps - I purchased her a while back and have never had the nerve to colour her - I admit that I nearly have up when I first started but so glad I didn't! 

I die cut the image and then used my SU distressing tool followed by Tim Holtz inks.  The rose is from a ribbon I have stashed away and I added some lace that I also distressed using my Tim Holtz ink.  Booth the tag and the clock are cut from kraft card stock using Tim Holtz dies.  The charm and the corner are from my tin!  

The image was coloured with copics; 

E000, E000, E00, E01, E02, E11, E21
E33, E35, E37, E47
YR03, YR17
R59, R89 

Now onto what I was so proud of myself for! I used a brad on the clock hands so they would move! This was inspired by a challenge over at Simply Challenged Challenges

Well I hope you like my card! I would like to enter this into the following challenges; 

Challenges for Everybody - Anything Goes
No Matter Which Challenges - Die Cuts/ Punches

You are Truly Appreciated…

Afternnon - How are you - WOW what a change in weather we have had - once again! Its steaming hot outside - kids are out playing and well I'm inside doing what I do best - washing, tidying, (blogging), shouting, cooking, and more cleaning (Ohhh and colouring but shhhh!)

So yes Im finally once again ahead of myself and my oh my do I like the feeling - got so much still to do with Christmas fast approaching! But - I will get there.  

So a couple of weeks ago the wonderful Betty had a fab offer in the shop - if you spent over a certain amount you would get a free image from a future release! and so yet i couldn't resist and so I made a purchase an Oh my the free one is beautiful! 

This is Anthea - She isn't available yet - but I suggest you keep your eyes peeled over at the shop for when her and the rest of the release are available - remember you will see previews over on the SBS Blog! or you can join us on the Facbook Group here

So after sending her out Betty decided that she was going to run a challenge for us all on the FB group using this image! So I just HAD to join in! The image was coloured with copics - I coloured her on the sofa one night so I have no idea as to what colours I used.  The papers are all from my stash, I also used my SU Distressing tool and my Th inks! The flowers, pin and cheesecloth are all from my stash.  The sentiment is from Tickled Pink - I purchased the thank you sentiments ages ago and stashed them away! 

Well I hope you like my card! Thanks for stopping by - I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;

October Thirty First….

BOOOO! I know I didn't really scare you - but it was worth a shot! 

How are you all today? Well I finally have the mojo back - slowly but surely its all falling together - and Im no longer chasing my tail! Yep creativity is running free.  Yesterday I was sat here and I had a 'light bulb' moment - you know when suddenly you can see what you want to create and you know exactly HOW to create… and so I decided that I would use my idea! 

Now this has not been the easiest to photograph as the front is acetate hence why its quite a dark photo!   I purchased a set of stamps last week from e-bay (never been too big for halloween but now I kinda LOVE it!) My Minds Eye Lost and Found Halloween - they are SO SO funky and I have so many more ideas with them… I don't know if I will ever stop! 

Meet the FAB Wrapped Up Rio

Now I think it looks FAB.  In both the top corners I stamped the spiders web, I HAD to use the potion bottles too so added them in the bottom corner - as a sentiment I went with 'Halloween - October Thirty First' - I so love the stamps and the papers too - they are from the My Minds Eye 6x6 Paper Stack - there are so many lovely papers in that pack - may have to grab another one! 

All the designs on the front were stamped onto the acetate using Stayz On oh and my trusty anti-static bag! I forgot how useful the bag was - Now as you can imagine it was pretty hard to try and line all the stamps us on the acetate and YES I made a few mistakes hence why I have a little tip for you

**If you find that your not happy with your stamped image on acetate - remember you can always use Acetone Free Nail Varnish Remover to remove the image - Always make sure you wash the area after with a damp cloth**

She is SO FAB and I can't wait to colour her again! She was coloured with copics 

E000, E00, E02
YG03, YG17
E33, E35, E37
W2, W4, W5 

Well I hope you like her - I would like to enter this card to the following challenges;
