A Monster Party

It seems that everytime I am away, my mojo just goes flying away too....... and me being a bit poorly and school starting this week doesn't help at all. So, of course, my card today is quite simple .. but I think it came out so cute too.... can''t really go wrong with such a fun image. 

I made my card today for this week's Just Wordz Stamps where the theme today is ANYTHING + A SHAPED CARD... So I used the words It's Party Time..

and made a circle easel card using my nesties.

The cute monster stamp is from Squiggle Stamps which I was so lucky enough to receive from my blogger friend Heidi yay :) and the banner stamp was a freebie in the magazine Simply Homemade.

Coloured both stamps with my promarkers.

Don't forget that today is the last chance to get the new stamps at a special preview price.
Check them out here.

I am entering my card in these challenges today.

It's A Girl

I didn't have an early night yesterday as I said I would. I ended up doing an ordered male card.. another one that I had forgot! She called me asking if it was ready.. oops .. of course it is I said, I'll get it tomorrow ...  I am so disorganized at the moment.. I really think I need some time off  ;)

Well, it's Tuesday so time for another fab challenge at Crafty Sentiments. The challenge this week is to use BANNERS/ FLAGS/ BUNTING on your cards. All the girls today are using one of the new and so cute images from today's new release!

But that is not all.. this week we are also seeing the launch of our Crafty Cutters Dies  which come with sentiments sets that match perfectly with it .. yay so exciting ! The image that I am using is Lucy with Rattle and then I used also the It's a Girl sentiment.

I coloured my image with my promarkers, banners are Die-Namics, flower Marianne Design, floral flourish Joy Crafts, Spellbinders Nestabilities Eyelet Circle die and Doily Lace Trim Martha Stewart punch.

More Sparkle with Stamp Fairy

Hello girls, good evening. I'm back .. .. well sort of..  It was a fabulous short holiday but am so tired now. We also had a delay at the airport, so got home really late and today even had to go to work! Ha ha we were like zombies today..  the ones that didn't manage to take it off!

Anyway.. I better show you my Stamp Fairy card now as I am so late with that today.

It's the second week with our Sparkle Challenge and here I am again with another sparkly card.  Today I used the adorable Barry Bedtime for my card, coloured him with my promarkers.. 

.. and of course added lots of sparkle.. on his little hat and pompom and also around all the card. I found me some gorgeous ribbon in my stash which had sparkly dots of glitter on the snowflakes all around as well, and then used some shiny card to die-cut out a snowflake from another new die set that I bought woot woot :) I also bought me the new poinsettia die.. but that is on pre-order ... coming out in October! I am so looking forward to get that.

So hope you like my card and hopefully have inspired you to play with us Stamp Fairy girls. 

This is the latest new Stamp Fairy release.

New Home

Yesterday, while blog hopping around, I came across a New Home card... which reminded me that I had a New Home card ordered!! ... woops.. I had totally forgot about it! 

This is what I came up with.... 

At first I just didn't know which stamp to use, but then I remembered a Pink Cat Studio stamp set which I had, and thought this cute one.. errmmm another un-inked stamp.... was just perfect! 

I coloured it with my promarkers, paper is from my DCWV Floral Prints paper pack, border punch is Martha Stewart and the dies Nestabilities. Sentiment is computer generated.

The flowers are wooden ones, which lucky me I had won from Lorraine.. yay  :) First time using them.. can colour these, but I thought I really liked them in their natural colour.

Fairwee Emaline

Again I stayed overtime yesterday... but I can have a good break now yay.. as it was a Public Holiday here today..   I'm taking tomorrow off ... and on Friday... woo hoo.... I'm off to Amsterdam :)) I am so excited. This is the yearly team activity that we do where I work. The first time we went to Taormina for a day, then we went to Vienna for two days and now it's Amsterdam for three days he he so fun. Hope weather will be good with us.

So, in between some house cleaning, today I managed to do me this card which I made just for fun. I've been seeing lots of cards made for the Less Is More Challenge and decided to play along as well, as the girls there are trying to reach 1000 entries.

I only played once or twice before, as I do find this challenge so though and today as well really not sure if my card is CAS at all.. so well let me know girls .. look I got lots of white space ....... :)

I used two stamps on my card today, one is the cute Fairwee Emaline and the other stamp, the tree, was a freebie in the Simply Homemade Magazine, which I stamped directly on some dotted paper and then coloured the flowers and tree trunk with my promarkers.

Today I decided to stamp my sentiment directly on my card..... after doing the embossing.......really don't know how it came out good.. ha ha and I could make it in that slanting way as it was a clear stamp... The grass is a Die-Namics die and the little butterflies are and XCut punch.

A Birthday Card

Hello everyone, good morning, it's time for another new challenge at Crafty Sentiments and this week the theme is BIRTHDAY CARDS. So many gorgeous stamps to use for this theme and finally I decided on Henry Mushroom Bear digi stamp ... It's been some time since I used it ... 

... and you can never go wrong with such an adorable stamp I think... even when Mr mojo is MIA.. yes that is where mine was while I was doing this card. It is so difficult to create something while hubby is around!! I coloured stamp with my promarkers, paper is from a Papermania paper pack, a butterfly and a bow to finish it off. 

I am entering my card in Flutter By Wednesday Challenge where the theme is ANYTHING GOES

Thank you for looking.

It's only yesterday that I realised how busy I am going to be this week... next Monday kids will be starting school again.. still got loads of things to prepare..... hubby is going to repaint our younger son's bedroom since it still had Mickey Mouse plastered all over and so lots of cleaning.. and on Friday morning I'm off to Amsterdam for the weekend!!! Yikes... not for Amsterdam of course.. I'm looking forward to that :)) .. but for all the things I have to do .. this besides some DT Cards which I still have to do.. really hope I won't have to stay overtime this week as well!

Anyway, I have a really sparkly card today to show you now and it's my DT Card for the new Stamp Fairy Challenge. The theme for this fortnight is SPARKLE. I had immediately thought of Christmas when I saw this theme and so a Christmas Card I did using the cute Barry Winter.

Wasn't sure which photo I liked best, if this one that I took in the sun.. 

.. or this one taken in the shade... so me always finding it difficult to decide kept them both ha ha 

I cut the stars with my Die-Namics die, the sparkly strips are Papermania and the Christmas tree is from Mic Crafts. I coloured my image with my promarkers . Had so much fun making this card ... I do think I got carried away a bit though with the sparkle. There is it all over the edges, on the stars, on the sparkly strips.. 

..  in the snow and on Barry's hat and scarf as well. Still.. I really loved how it turned out. So fun I think.

These are my challenges for today.

My son was so excited today. His bedroom was delivered today and so they spent all day mounting it up. I'll be busy cleaning tomorrow after I come back from work... so I'm really hoping I won't have to stay overtime again tomorrow as we want to go find some curtains and matching bed sets as well!
