I've Been Tagged!!!

I don’t know I don’t post in a few days and then I do three posts all in one day!!

Thank you to Becky for tagging me… so sorry I haven’t done this sooner, not sure how I missed this!!

1 - If you could have $100.00 worth of scrapbook paper or assorted embellishments, which would you choose?
I think I would choose paper because I’m just addicted to 12x12 paper, I see it and I just have to have it but then I can’t cut it!!

2 -If you had to choose between using only stamps or ribbons, which would you choose?
That is easy it has to be stamps every time with me, I love ribbon but I’d be lost without my stamps!

3 - If you knew how to do both awesome cards and layouts but could only do one for a whole year…which would you do?
That’s tough because I love making cards to make others happy but I would so love more time to scrap so that all those things I haven’t had the heart to use on cards to give away I could keep forever…. I guess it would have to be cards as I always put others before myself!

4 - Would you rather own a scrap booking store or have your own scrapping room at home?
I think I’d be happy with just a room of my own, I have a room but it’s a small shared room with OH and I’m running out of space. I don’t think I would like to run my own craft business it would probably mean I wouldn’t be able to craft as much as I would like to... although being able to play with new stash would be very exciting!!

5 - What is your CURRENT card making or scrapping style?
Currently it’s Christmas because I have so many christmas cards to make but that aside it has to be girlie and flowery!!!

Here are the rules…………..Please answer the questions on your blog and tag 5 more people to answer the same questions……….make sure you list on your blog who you are tagging

Pink Christmas!!

Don't you just love pink christmas cards?! If I had my way I'd do all my christmas cards pink, I know it's not very traditional but I just love pink (if you hadn't already guessed lol!!)

Can't remember who makes this pink swirly paper but I bought it from the Glitter Pot, as soon as I saw it I knew I just had to have a few sheets as I'm into swirls in a big way at the moment!!

The sentiment is a Penny Black stamp and the snowflake is part of a Sizzlit snowflake die set.

Think Pink Thank You

Here's another pink card that I made for our think pink competition... I just love brown and pink together, inspiration for this card came from Papercrafts Magazine. Found it very hard to give up those pink primas!!

hmmm Blonde Moments!!

I'm into pink & brown again... The flower is coloured using Blonde Moments pearl powders, they were a last minute purchase from Ally Pally after admiring them every time I went!

They are fantastic, you use a perfect medium ink pad to stamp with then brush on the powder, to seal it all you do is spritz a bit of water onto area and let it dry, you can also use them like paints too... the photo really doesn't do them justice as they shimmer!

Get Well Soon

I organised a 'think pink' card competiton for my crafty friends to raise some money for the Breast Cancer charity as last month was Breast Cancer awreness month. We managed to raise £135.00 plus we have over 60 cards to hand over to the charity to sell on!

Here's one of the cards I made for the competiton, it's actually the winning card, never expected that! I love this paper!

Circle Journal

Ooops I'm a bad blogger!!! Sorry not posted for a bit, first week back to work last week and I have to say it was a long week and I was shattered come Friday but it was nice to get back into a routine again, I feel almost normal again lol!

I've been busy with a circle journal that I signed up to on a forum I go on, so thought I'd post the most recent one I finished... I've made loads of cards but I can't show most of them yet as some are for birthdays coming up and also I orgainsed a card competition to raise money for Breast Cancer Care, but as soon as the voting is done I'll get them up here!
