Happy Halloween

Hi everyone,

Quick one from me today as I realise I haven't shared this yet and as it's sort of spooky then it has to be today.

I took my Serena stamp and made her into a witch, not a very scary one I admit but sort of scary cute...does that count?!

That's Crafty! challenge - Clean and Simple

Hi everyone,

Time for another challenge over at That's Crafty! and this fortnight's theme is: Clean and Simple.

Personally this is one of my favourites, so we'd love to see plenty of white space and minimal embellishments if any.

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





I made a card for this using my Bentley stamp, it's funny how the temptation to colour him as a ginger cat keeps happening!!

Winners of my stamps

Hi everyone,

Hope you're all okay out there.

Unfortunately, the draw for the three winners didn't quite go to plan as you'll see! I put all the names from the comments left and my 2 new Bloglovin subscribers as I'm not sure whether you can leave comments via that so I included them to be fair.

I decided to ask the arty director if she would do it for me ( she did it once in the past ) but it didn't quite go the way I wanted it to .....she obviously wasn't in the mood at the time!

Ready to do the draw....maybe.....we'll see....

oooh food!

Funny sort of food!

Nah can't be bothered!

Ah she's changed the bowl now to tempt me....I'm not that stupid

Still not feeling the love for this :(
Shall I do it......no, going for a lie down now, too stressed!!
I used the good old fashioned method instead .....my own hands!!





Can the lovely ladies who were picked out please contact me with addresses so I can get the stamps out to you this week, don't forget to let me know when they arrive and share your lovely artwork made with the stamps of course ;)



p.s: My kitchen is undergoing a complete refit so that's why it looks a little weird at the moment!

My Stamps Are Here!!!!!!

STICKY POST 

CLOSING DATE 3 OCTOBER 2016

SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWER POSTS

NOW CLOSED



Hi everyone,

Hope everyone is okay out there,

The day has come at long last when I can finally let the cat out of the bag.....I've designed some stamps!!

The wonderful Laura and Graham at That's Crafty! liked my designs enough to have stamps made from them, how wonderful is that?!

I've designed them so that when they're stamped they look exactly like they've been hand drawn and they are the most stunning quality of course.
I like to call them 'acceptably quirky'.....what I mean by that is they won't scare your Grandma if you send her a card with them on!!

Here they are in case you want to buy them That's Crafty! Clear stamps which I hope you do ;)



There are 4 stamp sets called the Serenity Collection:


Then there are the Quirky Girls Collection:



For the whole of this week my lovely and talented teamies will be show casing their creations using a mixture of these stamps at That's Crafty! team blog and I'll probably be around at some point again with at least one too ;)

Now because I'm sooooo happy about this, I want you all to be happy too so I'm giving away the 3 sets of stamps below:




I'm going to draw 3 winners in 3 weeks time on the 3 October and here's what you have to do to be in a with chance of winning (it's the usual stuff really)

1) Please leave a comment below to let me know you're interested. 
2) Make sure you're a follower of my blog 
3) This is open to wherever you are in the world 
2) I would be grateful if you could spread the word about the stamps on your blogs, Facebook etc
3) Pop back here if you're one of the winners and let me see what you've made...thats the most important thing.


I really hope you all like my That's Crafty! stamps. I haven't stopped using them for about a month now and really enjoy using them in soooo many different ways on tags, cards. journals etc, they are so versatile.

I'm really excited to see what you all make with them, at the end of the day that's what they were designed for ;)
