Winging It

Bee-cause I like my friends to Bee happy I  created this simply greetings card
 This is Happy Buzzer (so cute) you can find it here
I'm very fussy when it comes to bees, most of the time they get depicted as being black and yellow when they are in fact brown and yellowish. 
Please pop over to the the challenge (link at top) and visit our lovely design teams blogs and leave them some positive vibes.

Back soon

Scapes???

Hello,
we are looking at "SCAPES" over at The Male room this week.

That's right, landscapes, seascapes, whatever type of scape you can imagine.
I have chosen a garden-scape,
To give it a more landscaped feel I layered up different sections. This gives it a bit more depth.
I'm afraid I didn't get a very good angle to show the depth of the layering. I wanted the wall to have a slightly white-washed but aged look, So I used Grey squirrel & Satin Promarkers. I also used muted colours to give it a more masculine feel.

Please remember to pop over and check out all the lovely Design Teams work and leave them some good vibes.
Back real soon

No Mistletoe Just Wine

Hello all,
I've made a lovely little card for my sis-in-law based on 2 challenges:


and
This is another new For the Love of Stamps set - It's Wine O'clock.
The vines are in Emerald envy, grapes in Mint macaron and Wine glass + sentiment in Dapper denim.
I swapped the colours of the vines and grapes on the insert..
She loves a good glass of wine so hopefully she'll love this too.

Off to make the dinner.
Back soon

Ring ring

Back again with a new challenge card.

Brown Sugar Challenges is going with an "anythings goes" challenge and my daughter needed a card for one of her friends so.....I decided to create this
This is my new step set, For the Love of Stamps - #iluvmyfone. I am now cool....
I double stamped the mobile then cut out the centre of one so the "screen" would be fractionally lower than the body. After colouring it in I used camelion glitter.
The insert needed to be a bit more "in-ya-face"
So I filled it with app symbols. Hopefully it will be a hit.

Back soon

Kraft Away

Hello again crafty peeps,
or should that be Krafty peeps?!?
We have a great challenge for you over at Fab'n'Funky Challenges this week. We want you to


We want to see use Kraft card or paper somewher in your project...easy peasy!
Our lovely sponsor for this weeks challenges is......
http://www.doctor-digi.com/index.php?route=common/home
The prize is the winner will get 2 digi's of their choice.

 So without further ado....
I knew I had to have this image the moment I saw her. This is Hello Sadoko (Hello Kitty meets Sadoko from The Ring) you can find it HERE 
It just felt right that this image would work well with kraft card and it does give it that oriental feel.
Of course no card would be complete without a hint of bling.....hence the subtle coloured gems.

Please pop over and visit our lovely DT at Fab'n'Funky and leave them some positive feedback. It is always gratefully received.

So I thought I would also share with you my other little project. It's my very first attempt at a quilt.
It's not quite finished and I'm not sure if I'm fully happy with it yet. But I also have to stop being so hard on myself and remember it's my first go.

Back soon with more sharing

Science

Hello,
yes I know Science doesn't explain much so.........

Over at The Male Room this week we would like to see your science brain...
http://themaleroomchallengeblog.blogspot.co.uk/
Just think back to school/college, what did you do, were you lucky enough to have a wacky out-of-this-world teacher who amazed & dazzled you? Well we want all you mad scienctist ideas.

I have made a fairly simple card.....(bloomin backing paper took me ages to create)
This handsome fellow is Professor Wiggingson you can find him here, he's from the wonderful people at Dr.Digi.
OMG.......I spend ages giggling to myself and desperately trying not to order more of their hilarious stamps.
I've added the backing paper to the DOWNLOAD tab at the top of the page. Just click on the image and save.
I also remembered to give my atoms a little pop....
I added a few crystals to the centres to give them that nice sparkle I believe all atoms have.
Please pop over and visit our lovely DT and leave them some positive vibes.

Talking of positive vibes, my 15 year old daughter was off to a Halloween party the other week and  left her costume plans to the very last minute. Did she just buy an off-the-shelf one....OH NO!!! She had to be a character from an anime (sort of). She wanted to be Giffany!!
So in a 2 hour rush-job I managed to whip up a skirt from scratch. When I say from scratch I literally mean all I had was 2metres of blue fabric and a prayer!!!
BUT.....
 I managed it. It's hard to see on the piccie but the front also has pleates. Only 2, but their there. It also has an elasticated waistband (I had some elastic in my sewing box...thank god)
The overall look....
 She was slightly frustrated that mummy's vast craft collection didn't have a Rainbow Ribbon for her hair.
So the positive vibe is....I'm Bloody Brilliant!!! ;-)
And I have a very grateful  daughter

Who better give me more notice next year!!!!!


Back soon with more amazing me...lol

Zingy Little Number

My husband has never been a pudding fan BUT.........
 a zesty lemon meringue pie is a completely different story. Today, god bless him, he helped me make it by whisking the egg whites (my electric whisk died). I enjoy making lemon curd because I give it a little bit of a zesty punch by adding 1tblsp of fresh grated root ginger.
I actually got a little carried away and made enough to jar up and put in the fridge.
So lemon curd on toast for breakfast tomorrow.

I can truly say there is something deeply satisfying about making a special treat for my husband.
(Oops...I forgot we're not allowed to say things like that anymore are we.......feminist tosh)

Well back to other projects for now

Think Colour

Hello,
 we are thinking about colour over at The Male Room but only 3 of them.
Blue, Orange and Yellow.
Any type of project you like as long as you stick to the colour pallette. I have made a super simple  birthday card for a friend who I know will throughly love it.
 
My shear cheekiness will be warmly welcomed............along with a pint of their favourite poison of course!
Well, off to put the finishing touches to another project.
Back real soon
Hugs
Buffy xx
