Opinions please?...............

Please can you give me your opinions on these altered jars? I  finished them last night for the girls to give their teachers but I am really not sure....this is the first time at altering jars and I'm just not sure. 
I have gone with a neutral colour scheme...there are some book pages stuck around the outside which you can't see very well...some lace and some seam binding....I have coloured the lovely sassys with my pencils and added some flowers and leaves from my stash......just not sure if they are altered enough if you see what I mean?? 

Thanks fro looking!

Sugar Sugar..............

Candy  Now Closed
First inking for Simply Sassy 5th Avenue......wish I had legs like that !
The paper is from a Kate Knight pad and I have added some little hearts and a ribbon buckle...the numbers I covered in fine glitter and the sentiment is from StampingAllDay.

Now I have put together a little kit (if you can call it that...just some bits'n'bobs) but it does include a brand new 5th Avenue stamp ...if you would like to win it please leave me a comment and I will pick a winner on Friday.......As I didn't have any candy for my blogoversary back in May I will be having a few more little giveaways over the next few weeks so keep popping by!!

And finally look what my fab Uncle has made for me!!!.....I showed him my one lonely little blender tool and asked him if he could come up with something and these arrived in the post this morning!
 Thank you Uncle David xx...there will be some wine winging it's way down the next time we head down to Glasgow!

A successful night!

Well this was one of the first cards I sold last night at the school Fayre!......another page ripped from my old book...a luggage tag from a pack I found in WhSmiths all inked up with Walnut Stain...I have used my pencils to colour in Carnival Balloon...first time being inked up for her!! Kinda liked this one and part of me didn't want to let her you ever get that with your cards?...I have a couple that I never took to the fayre cos I just can't part with them!
I was sooo pleased with all the interest I got...even though I was a little bit embarrassed with people ooohing and ahhing over my cards!  I sold 15 bookmarks, 21 cards and both of the little sets of notelets...which came to just under £60 for the school!  A few folk did say that I wasn't charging enough  ( £1 for the bookmarks, £1 for the CAS cards, £2 for the other cards and £2 for the notelets)  but I just wanted to make sure that I sold something!lol

Tonights the night!!

Well tonight's the night...have I made enough?  Will I sell anything at all?  Little bit nervous as I have never done anything like this before...I am hoping as the money goes to the school that I will sell something!lol  The girls have told all their pals about the bookmarks so if they sell I will be happy!
Will be back later to let you know how it went!

Pink Giraffe...............

Baby card today....this is the last little piece of paper and I cannot remember the make, sorry.  I have done some faux stitching around the edge...I love my new Marianne die saves so much time...I used to sit for ages cutting out swirls to roll up! I have added a tiny dummy and the sentiment is printed from the computer.

I'm off to bed throat is aching, knowing my luck I will come down with something just in time for the holidays!

I have bookmarks coming out my ears here in the are a few that I made yesterday.
I wanted to ask if you think a £1 is okay to ask for these at the school fayre?
They are such a great way to use up all the little bits and bobs that I have had lying about for ages!
I have also bought my first book for ripping up! Feels a bit naughty though ripping pages out of a book!

Right better get back to it...I know I have probably made far too much stuff and will have loads left but I would rather take too much than run out.....says me being very optimistic!!

Blue Boy..........

Thought I had better make some boy cards for the school fayre! Not  much to say about this card as there is not really much to it....what can you put on a male card apart from buttons???
I apologise for my posts being short and sweet lately...I only have a week left till the school fayre and still don't seem to have many cards done so better put the laptop down and get on with it....the sun is shining here too which makes it even harder to go and sit in my cubby!!

Black and White..........

Been having a go at colouring with just the black's not great, but for a first attempt I am pretty pleased with it.
I love this sentiment..(.perfect for Fort William weather!!lol  ..although I don't want to jinx it, it has been pretty nice here the last couple of days!) was a freebie from PaperMakeUp Stamps not sure if it is still available.

Sorry got to lots of stuff to finish back later!

Luv a Latte and my new stamp!!

Another card done today to go in my box for the school fayre....... Simply Sassys Luv a latte... I love her big eyes! The paper is from my 6x6 Basic grey pad all inked with Walnut Stain...the little flowers I made myself with a couple of punches and some brads and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

This is what I am most excited about...I was like a kid at Christmas playing with it!  My own custom stamp which I ordered from Nicky at Stampingallday  no more printing out labels which I never really thought looked that great stuck on the back of my cards.

Thanks for stopping by!

Kenny K........

Another go at using my greys for this Kenny K image!  I have used my Cools, Warms and Ices for this one...think I have finally got cracked black hair! The playing cards are from a Christmas cracker...they have been sitting in my stash forever!

I'll sign off with this pic of Bella and Coco...Jude made this caterpillar at Rainbows and they love it!!  It gets a haircut every day!

Retirement card.......

Here is one of my strange card had to have an Ikea pencil on it!!  I have coloured  Relaxing Ronnie with my pencils....printed the sentiment on the computer....added some bits and bobs and there you go....customer was delighted with it! Phew!
Edited to add......the reason it had to have an ikea pencil on it was for a bit of a joke...the person would always ask anyone who was going to ikea to bring him back some pencils...

I will leave you with a pic of the first of my poppies to open!

Busy, busy,busy...............

Not been about much lately in blogland....there is the possibility of me having a table at the school fayre to raise funds for the school so I have been busy making some bits and bobs....mainly book marks and things like that.
I have had my first go at these bookmarks which are incredibly easy to make, there is a fab tutorial over on the Simply Sassy blog....I always thought they were tricky to make!
Must dash got scraps of paper lying about everywhere gotta tidy up!
