I Will Always Love My Sarah Kay Stamps

Good morning everyone.  The Easter Holiday for the kids is nearly over.  When Brandon goes back to School, I'm off on a job hunt.  Where I live (Buxton), there's not an awful lot of jobs as this place is so small.  I'm originally from Liverpool and getting a job there was a lot easier.  So I'm going to try harder, after all I need lots of new crafty items and the only way to get them is with a job lol.

Now this card is using one of my old Sarah Kay stamps.  I have quite a few of these and I do love them.  I forget about them because of all the wonderful digi stamps that are out there at the mo.


This is my favourite Sarah Kay stamp and I have coloured her in with pro-markers.  The papers are Pink Petticoat Vintage Roses.  I have used a Spellbinders Floral Ovals die and a LOTV sentiment stamp.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, as is the seam ribbon.  The gem in the centre of the bow and the felt doily shape are from The Works.

Challenges:-

613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes
Art By Miran - Anything Goes
Crafty Passion Challenges - Pretty Pastels
Creative Moments - Anything Goes
Delicious Doodles - Pink & Girly for Breast Cancer Awareness
The Crafty Bloggers Network - Use Die-Cut or Embossing
The Squirrel and the Fox - Use a Die-Cut or Punch 

Thank you so much for looking and have a great day

Mermaid Magic

Good morning everyone,

We got to the pictures yesterday and myself, Brandon and his friend Jack all watched the Lego movie.  It was more enjoyable than I thought.  I thought I would be bored to death but I wasn't.  It was fast paced with a cute story line.  Would recommend it for kids.

There's been quite a few challenges out there lately for white on white and embossing and I thought I would have a go.  Here is my attempt......


I've not used white on white before and I loved the way it turned out.  Would try it again.

The stamp is and LOTV one coloured in with my pro-markers.  I've also added a sprinkle of glitter to the bubbles.  The die is a Spellbinders Floral Oval die.  I have used my cuttlebug and embossing folders for the two different embossed panels behind the image.  Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts.  The sentiments was part of a set of stamps that came free with a mag ages ago.  Ribbon and gem are from my stash. 

Challenges:-

4 Crafty Chicks - Embossing
Addicted to Stamps - Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz - Purple and Blue
Crafter's Cafe Challenge - Add Glitter (glitter added to image)
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
Creative Knockouts - Anything Goes

Birthday Cats

Good Morning everyone.  Hope you are all well.  I've had the painters at my house for the last week and a bit sprucing up the front and back.  It's been a little stressful as all the doors and windows had to be left open throughout the day and they kept mucking up my kitchen floor.  But it does look nice now as it looked dilapated before.  There are just some finishing touches to the back to be done and that should be it.  Privacy again lol.

Onto my card.  This image is so adorable, I love it.  It's from Eureka Stamps called Kitty Party.  Great to colour in.  Everyone reckons the big orange cat looks like Garfield lol.


The papers are Wild Rose Studio Spring Fling 6 x 6 and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Everything else is from my stash.
