The Stampman BlogHop

I have never done a bloghop before so this is all new to me. The Stampman is hosting the most amazing bloghop prizes on each page you visit.There are lots of prizes to be won off the design team ladies on the way round. Good luck to everyone if you fancy entering!

Things I meant to post!


A couple of atcs I made a few weeks ago - I took the photos but never got round to posting


A bookmark made from a tag using an Elusive Image stamp.

Finally a couple of Christmas cards - I'm really sorry the photos are pants but I really couldn't get a good shot as it is nearly all white but I think you get the idea. I used a Martha Stewart Punch for the Snowflakes and a cuttlebugg emossing folder for the background then on with the glitter (You can never have too much glitter!)

It looks like I have finally cracked the mystery of multiple photos on the blog so fingers crossed that it works.

And finally the missing wedding card


This is a recent wedding card I made. Details are on the earlier post that missed the photo

Finally - New Card Posting

I finally found the time to upload a few photos of things I have made over the last few weeks.

Here is a little card made using Paper Artsey Stamps - the background paper is from the wonderful Blonde Moments collection called 'All I want for Christmas' (but it's not just for Christmas). I just love the colours. I coloured in the images using a selection of Copic pens.

Isn't this door knocker picture just fab - it called out for me to turn into an ATC.



Watch out for flying cats. This is an ATC I made For Craft Stamper Challenge 'Wings' - it didn't make the magazine but it did make the Craft Stamper Web Site. The cat stamp is an Artzgirls stamp and the bird/branches background is a Home Impressions Stamp.


Here are a couple more atcs.

And finally a wedding card I made (I made 2 but as they were identical only need to show one). I used by new circle die from Nellie Snellen and the flowers were originally off white but I coloured them using Distressed inks and Copic pens and finally added a little bling with gold glitter. The Wedding cake stmp is an old favourite from VAP and I used Copics to tone it to the background paper. The greeting was printed off on the computer.

Well I think that's all for now.

Lothian Crafts

I just came across this super offer from Lothian Crafts. Check out their blog.

Being off-line

What can I say except it is nice to be back. We have had major problems first with our telephone line and then with our router. I have been unable to log on for over a week. We are busy getting our stuff ready for our trip to France and Belgium and have decided to travel back via Amsterdam, Should be an interesting trip.

Haven't done to much of my crafting been too busy finishing off some wedding bits & pieces for Em's wedding. They are all done now and the wedding is next Saturday so I will be able to get back to my crafting full steam ahead.

I have lots of letters to the USA to write and lots of ATCs to make for UK Stampers Network for their swaps. Got to get on.
