Made it in time for Passion for Promarkers!

Phew.....finished this in time for challenge over at PFP...this week was any colour and a theme of vintage...I hope this counts as I haven't really made any vintage style cards!
The paper is DCWV....a Sugar Nellie image which I have attempted to colour vintagey but not really done very well! The music sheet I found somewhere on the internet, sorry can't remember where, and I have stamped and embossed with some of my grunge stamps....ribbon from stash and the noel sentiment I have had kicking about for ages but I am not really very sure it goes that well! The holly I got from ebay.
Thanks for having a look!

Would like to swap......

*Edited* I have a taker for the stamp thanks*
I have this unmounted Sugar Nellie stamp that I have hardly used and I would like to swap it for some stamped Tilda images if anyone is interested?? Just thought it was a good way of clearing out some of my stash that I don't use!

Passion for Promarkers #25

Apologies for the pic....really dull day here and the light is awful!

Anyway this is my entry for week 25 at PFP where you can use any colour but must follow a sketch...which I love and have used it for two cards today!

The image is a freebie stamp I have had for a while coloured with sandstone, umber and pastel pink. The papers are all scraps that I have used up and some little hearts made with my punches.

This is the other card I did using the sketch again! This was a card I was asked to make for someone who is off an trip......Paddington is another freebie stamp and the earth I printed from the web and coloured with my PMs.

Thanks for stopping by!

PfP #24 and Just Magnolia

This is the first time I have entered a card for two challenges.............but it turned out that it worked for both! The image is another one that the lovely Sarah sent me (thanks!) coloured with Canary and Grass the required colours for this weeks challenge over at PFP......and Just Magnolia want to see distressing....every edge has been distressed and had a little bit of stickles added for some sparkle. I didn't have any patterned paper that matched the colours this week so I just drew some stripes with the Canary and Grass onto some paper and used that! I did have a little circle sentiment stamped but just couldn't decide the best place to put it...everywhere I tried just didn't look right.

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!

Just Playing

I was playing today with my PMs at shading and using up some scraps and came up with this card................I think the paper might be Bobunny but not sure as it was just this piece left! Will need to get some more cos I love it! I have used my tulip pearl again...gone a bit squint at some places...don't look too close! I have left the sentiment off til I decide what to use it for.
Thanks for looking!

ps what on earth were Jedward like tonight, can't bear to watch tomorrow!

Judes Firework Display

Jude had to create a firework display as part of her homework this week so I had the idea of making it a pop-up we set about with the glitter pens and glitter and this is what she came up with! I had to do the swirls for her ( and cutting the card) but she did the rest herself with a wee bit of help...not bad for 5!
She asked me if I would put a pic on my "computer thing for everyone to see" so here it is!

Passion for Promarkers #23

This week the challenge is to use any colour and the theme is to include animals.

Yip it's another Christmas card! The image is actually three different little stamps that I have masked and stamped all together. Coloured with Poppy, Berry, Forest Green, Sandstone and Cocoa. The papers are from my new pad of DCWV and I have added lots of little dots with Tulip Pear Gold.

Jude is still in Halloween mode today and she is wearing the tutu and wings that I was wearing last night! ( I have to add that I was actually wearing a black top with the tutu but Jude has gone for the skimpier option!) Check the moody face cos we took down all the decorations!

This is a long Halloween Post!

Well our Halloween party was a great success again this year! The only disaster was my biscuits which looked fab last year (pic below) but came out so bad this year I put them straight in the bin! I used the wrong biscuit recipe and they came out the oven all big and puffy :0(
Jude as a spider princess ( she refused to wear the wig!)

We had a treasure hunt and one of the clues was in the car...what the kids didn't know was that Phil was hiding in the back seat!lol


We had moved the table out of the dining room so there was loads of room to go crazy!
The best game was Make a Mummy! And the aftermath of it below!!

It was a great night and I was worried that nobody was gonna come as we had torrential rain all afternoon and there was loads of floods causing the the main road to be closed for a while! But thankfully everyone made it!

The treat bags I made at the last minute but fogot to get a pic of them all so got one quickly before Olivia and Nathan left!
It took us ages this morning to take down all the cobwebs and decorations....Jude went in a huff cos she wanted to keep them up!
