The projects over the next few posts are using the cute Snowplace stamp set that absolutly fell in love with...just dont ant to stop using it :0)
I held a crafty afternoon at the weekend, the last one for me for 2015 and we made lots of lovely Christmas cards which i am showing you a few.
Basic grey, mint macaron and dash of glittery red for this card that is just lovely. The greeting cut using the matching holly jolly greeting thinlets and added gems to the holly on his hat for extra sparkle

Back again with a festive card in the most striking colour combo in my opinion and i just love it.
I used Blackberry bliss, rich razzleberry and retired straberry slush (sorry) silver embossing and the bling added with dazzling diamonds glimmer paper - can't not have some sparkle :0)
The stamp set is holly jolly greetings and used ponging to create the ubique background

Congratulations to me!!
Another reason i got behind with everything is i took on the huge challenge of swimming the equivalent of the English Channel in my local pool...thats 22 miles in a 12 week period!!
1507 lengths to be exact and i finally finished just in time last night!!!
Relax called for for the next couple of days me thinks.
Happy crafting to you

Long time no blog...sometimes life just happens and overwhelms so forgive me for being missing for a few weeks.
With one thing and another blogging took a very back seat! crafting even took a back seat most of the time unless had crafternoon to prep for etc but am hoping to be back at it and getting festive as we enter into December.
I hope you are all well and will bear with me as i get back upto full speed again.
Many Thanksin advance

It's Thursday already...time flies by when you are having fun they say...or another so much to so so little time. that's me at the minute busy busy busy.
On a crafty note though today is not sponged!
Today is not Christmas!!
Ha ha so a quick make for Halloween today.
Using a sketched dot gift bag to hold a simple decorated notepad i used the banner framelets to cut out 3 layering sizes in halloween colours and then embossed the eyes and greeting from the Amoung the Branches set.
Below picture is trying to show you the sparkle of the emboss powder i made - black and irridescent ice mixed to add sparkly bits.
Lovely little gift rather than sweeties for the spooky evening.

As i had a bit of an organising/sort out weekend i did find some projects that i have not yet shown you one of them being a christmas box for a friend of my mum's ( she was coming to visit from Hollad so xmas early to save on postage costs etc)
The deco window box is retired i am afraid, sorry to see it go and so quick and simple to decorate for a personalised gift box but i stocked up - sorry!
Embossing to the window and simple silver snowflakes with gems to the centre on the DSP added and voila ready to fill with goodies of your choice.

Hello and happy Sunday to you
A chilly day here but have been busy in the garden trying to tidy it up before the weather gets really bad...not much crafting today i am afraid but i did wwant to sshowcase a couple of samples from last weekends crafternoon for you.
As i hae said i am definately addicted to sponging...just love getting inky at the minute and my son enjoys it too :0)
Sorry about the rubbish picture but had to share this CAS card i made for my display table...the more i look at it the more i love it. Simple sentiment embossed on white on white with sparkly bow made with the bow builder punch.
Such a stunner and am already planning more in every colour way lol
Another simple but stunning card with more sponging for the night sky.
Hope your weekend has been enjoyable

Firstly i would like to wish my friend a very happy birthday for today before showing you the card and giftbag i made for her.
I love the gift bag punch board and will be using it lots in the run up to Halloween as well as Christmas.
Colours of soft suede, calypso coral and pool party with the petite petals set although the background was stamped with the holly jollyset
Gems to the flower centres and below with matching bag - medium sized to fit her perfume in.
Hope she liked.

Late one from me today...I got a little carried away with mycraftifor World Cardmaking day yesterday so it became a crafting weekend :0)
I have also become addicted to sponging ( as you will see over the next few posts )
Using the Festival of Trees set along with a sentiment from Holly Jolly set and lots of sponging to make my night sky background in pool party, island indigoand night of navy.
Very festive, stunning but simple.

Still on the subject of Christmas I made this very sparkly card following a tip from a fellow team member Amanda of The Craft spa
I rubbed versamark pad over the lower side of the emboss folder and ran through my big shot before adding iridescent ice emboss powder and heating you can see a better picture of the result below.
Loving my Christmas crafting at the minute so be warned expect more lol
