Well - there we are.... (sorry that a couple others snuck in there hee hee ) I hope you will pop over to  A SCRAP JOURNEY and play along. 

HAPPY NEW YEAR









OMGOODNESS - HOW EXCITING... AND SOOOOOO CLOSE !!!

Hi Peeps,


Ink Stains
I have just been over to Roni's Blog  INK STAINS and she is trying to get 1500 Followers by midnight tonight and she only needs 4 more !!!!!!
I have been a Follower for a while and I think it's fantastic that she has such a huge following and is about to reach this milestone :-D That would be just so awesome if she achieves this and an added bonus is that she is going to put together a lil' Prize ... this is what she says.....


If I hit 1500, you'll be entered to win a prize package which will include all sorts of fun stuff...
including stamps, pattern paper, ephemera (from my Etsy store), charms, ribbon, fibers and MORE!!!

So why not buzz over there and let's see if we can get her to reach her Goal :-D



Don't forget too that we are on WEEK 2 of the latest CHALLENGE #8 at IKE'sWORLD CHALLENGES..... NEW YEAR - NEW BEGINNINGS and there is a FREEBIE there for you :-D

See you later and HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL.

MY LATEST STUFF + A BUCKET LOAD OF SNOT !!

Hi All,
I am just popping in quick here coz I am on Death's Door with a stinking cold (well....... not exactly eh ? but you know what I mean ??) I just hate getting colds :-(  I just can't function coz I have bad sinuses anyway and I just feel like my face is exploding  (hmmm..... do I feel inspiration for a new Digi coming on there ???!!! LoL) .....

Anyhoo - here I am to show you my midway creation for the Path of Positivity Challenge #9  JOY.
Here is my little card using some more from my snippets box and the digi is from our Sponsor this time - FRESH BREWED DESIGNS and it's called 'Have a Tweet Christmas' .



Also - Don't forget that we are just starting WEEK 2 of Challenge #7 over at IKE'sWORLD CHALLENGES.... "CHRISTMAS IS COMING' and there is a FREEBIE over there for you to play with and we've announced the Winners from Challenge #6 :-D

Thank you for dropping by - I am crawling back to my bed of misery now :-( xxxxxx

Hello Peeps,
I forgot to tell you about my 2nd video Tutorial over at SMEARED & SMUDGED FORUM... MIXED MEDIA UNIVERSITY... 


MIXED MEDIA UNIVERSITY

I've just done CLASS #10 - FAUX TILES, and if you go over you can see how I made this........


Here is a Chrimbo prezzie I made for a friend using an old Tea Bag box and I made tiles for the top in the same manner :-D




I covered the pencil in matching paper and inside I put matching cards, notelets and envelopes :-)

QUOTH THE RAVEN - CHALLENGE #27..... HO, HO, POE + CANDY ALERT

Me again, and as part of me being a total slacker, I have yet to make my project for the latest quest at QUOTH THE RAVEN  - #27... HO, HO, POE - MERRY CHRISTMAS.
We want to see a Christmassy themed creation BUT it also must be related to Edgar Allan POE, coz that's what we are all about there - right ??!!I will be doing something (I hope) but at least I wrote the Blog Post hahaha !!!
Congrats go out to SHONI who won the last Quest and there are some fabulous creations from my Teamies  BLACKDRAGON and SHELL, for you to feast your eyes upon :-)

We also have CANDY there to celebrate our reaching 100 Followers, so it's definitely worth whizzing over to have a look now isn't it ?????!!!!

WHAT A SLACKER !!!!

Hello Peeps,
I have been totally slacking in posting my recent stuff for DT work - you know how your life just goes totally to sh$t sometimes and Blogging just has to take a dive ??!!........... so here I am with some stuff ....

Firstly, my pieces for The Path of Positivity - Challenge #9 JOY  (not that I have much just at the moment)  ....

This time we are sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs
I used ' CHRISTMAS HOLLY' for my first creation

http://www.freshbreweddesigns.com/item_812/Christmas-Holly.htm




I paper pieced her dress and then coloured the rest of her with Promarkers. The rest of the card was made using bits from my snippets box of Chrimbo bits. I decided to go through and use up some of those things or else you just get huge boxes of snips don't you :-)  ? I did cut her a die cut background but I also used the left-over bit from a previous die cut (the green bit) so I think that cancels out the non-recycling hahaha !!

My second one is made using 'KITTEN IN A MITTEN' and I just love this cute snuggly image :-D

http://www.freshbreweddesigns.com/item_263/kitten-in-a-mitten.htm



This piece was also made with things from the snippets box. :-) The kitty was coloured with Promarkers and then some added Stickles. I cut him out with fancy scissors and edged it with gold pen.

I have another piece coming up during the midway reminder, so stay tuned for that one.
I hope you will pop over and see what my Teamies have produced, and meet our Guest DT member DONNA.  We hope to inspire you to play along with us with our theme of JOY, and there's a FREE motivational quote  there for you to snag too ! :-D

See you later :-D xxxxx

WOYWW #235

Hello Wednesday Peeps,
 Well, here we are again and now we are actually in December !!!! Where has this year gone to ???
For WOYWW #235 I am proud to show you a tidy work area.... in fact my whole room is tidy. !!! Shock - horror !!  I toiled all day yesterday and just had a massive clear out...... a case of "if I haven't used it in the last year - bin it " !!!  I did that with my wardrobe last week :-D
So, anyways.. here's my desk - I took 3 shots across to get it all in :-D

I think I'm pretty early this week so I am off to see who else is up.
If you want to know what all this is about and to go for a snoop around the world to see other people's Workdesks - then pop over to see  JULIA at the STAMPING GROUND.
