Busy Alf - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Happy Saturday :o)

Oh, I really must blog more often!  I make cards and then just forget to blog them... need to start scheduling a few posts in advance I think, try and override my forgetfulness!

Anyway, here's one I made for a customer weeks ago, and then forgot to post...

I've used the fabulous Alf from DigiStamp Boutique, as my customer was quite taken with him... and really, who wouldn't be?  He might actually be my favourite character ever.  You can find Alf HERE.  He's coloured with copics, the papers are retired ones from LOTV and the large number dies are Crafter's Companion.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says - anything goes
Dream Valley - birthdays

The boys are off for the half-term now, and Dex has plans for fairy cakes and crafting apparently... but hopefully I'll remember to pop back soon!  Thanks for popping in, hope you have a lovely evening :o)

Sweet Stampin' - bingo board for Halloween

Happy Saturday :o)

For this week's challenge at Sweet Stampin' we have a Halloween bingo board... although there are a couple of lines where you could squeeze something 'un-Halloween' in too!

Here's my card... another one that I have absolutely no use for really, but I had fun making it.

I used the Halloween Squares set from DigiStamp Boutique, coloured with copics, with some old First Edition papers and a sentiment from a magical/ fairy themed set... which is so old I have no idea where it was from.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Simon Says - photo inspiration
Allsorts - Halloween
Try it on Tuesdays - Halloween
Sweet Stampers - autumn or Halloween
The Crazy Challenge - Halloween
Pile It On - fantasy and/ or spiders/ cobwebs

Pav's off out tonight (drinking mucky beer, as Dex puts it), so I have pizza and the remote control all to myself... might even get my knitting out.  Ooh I know how to party eh?!

Thanks for popping in :o)

Sweet Stampin' - distressing

Happy Saturday :o)

This week at Sweet Stampin' we'd like to see your 'distressed' cards... my cards tend to be quite neat and 'clean', but every now and then I do like to play with inks and distressing tools.  I've even been known to rip paper, but I have to be feeling very brave for that lol!

I couldn't decide what to make, so ended up playing with some new male sentiment stamps I bought from Polkadoodles - you can find them HERE.  Pav's birthday has been and gone, so I'm not sure why I chose the husband stamp... maybe someone will need one, otherwise I'll be super organised for his next birthday for a change lol.  I stamped the sentiments in black Archival ink, the distress inks are Peacock Feathers, Squeezed Lemonade and Twisted Citron.  Papers are an old First Edition pad and the star die was from Joanna Sheen.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Aud Sentiments - use a die-cut plus a sentiment
Creatalicious - anything goes with optional make your own background

Actually, thinking about it, I probably should have made a Christmas card shouldn't I?!  Think I've only made about 3 so far this year... oops!

Thanks for popping in :o)
