That's Crafty! challenge - All of a sparkle

Hi everyone,

It's time for another challenge over at That's Crafty! and this fortnights theme is: All of a sparkle.

So we'd love to see anything glittery and sparkly.....come on you know you want a good excuse for getting the bling out!

Play along and you could be in with a chance of winning this






I made a tag for this using stickles and the most lush iridescent Pebeo paint, unfortunately you can't really see the contrast on the picture but it turns from green to blue depending on the angle.

Meet Penny

Hi everyone,

I've made a card using my girl called Penny.....she's the 'posh' one as you can see! She likes to channel a little bit of her inner Audrey Hepburn every now and then ;)






I popped down to Ally Pally on Saturday 17th Sep for the craft show and mainly hung around the That's Crafty! stand of course with a little bit of Paperartsy thrown in. It was such a thrill to see so many lovely ladies clutching my stamps in their hands, can't wait to see what they make with them!

I met so many people I'd not met before like Brenda Brown and Chris from pear shaped crafting who were both lovely and Nikki Acton who I'd already met before who is of course equally lovely too :) 

I watched some of my very talented teamies from That's Crafty doing makes and takes and demoing up a storm including Lauren and Alison....wished I could've stayed all day and learnt new stuff!

Here's some pictures from the day for you.

That's Crafty! challenge - Christmas in September

Hi everyone,

It's time for another challenge over at That's Crafty! challenge blog and this fortnight's theme is: Christmas in September. So we'd love to see everything Christmassy really, trees, snowmen, poinsettias etc.


Play along and you could be in with a chance of winning this


so you could treat yourself to my new stamps if you win .....just saying ;)


I'll be honest here, making Christmas stuff now I wasn't keen on BUT think about it this way, if you make something now that'll be one less thing to make in a panic later on in the year!!

I made a card using the little house that hangs from my quirky girl's Beki hair, perfect size to fit 3 in the snow globe.
