Spitz the Christmas Elf

Image
Good morning fellow bloggers. Christmas is almost here so for my SFTW DT team card I have made a another Christmas card using the Fabulous Spitz from Saturated Canary. This fits in nicely with the new challenge that starts today at SFTW.

The theme for this challenge is to use some Red on you project and as always atSFTW you must use either a digital stamp or a rubber stamp on your projects. Our generous sponsor for this challenge is Saturated Canary who kindly provided the team with some lovely image to use.


I love this cute little fella and as soon as I had coloured him with my Copic's I knew exactly which papers to use. I dug out my First Edition Christmas pad and finally after a year of hoarding used the candy cane papers. (well you have to wait for the right image don't you?). I distressed the edges of al my papers and them layered them up onto a Craftwork card base. The gorgeous wreath cut using a memory box die has been heat embossed using white Frantage embossing powder. …

Tag's

Good morning fellow bloggers. What a wonderful week we have had so far! who said we never get a summer in England? The only down side for me is having to roast in an office. We have no air con and the temp is currently a steamy 32 at my desk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Enough of that and on to the important matter of the new Challenge over at Diva's by Design.

Our new challenge is TAG'S. This challenge is being sponsored by EZ Templates. For my DT creation I have gone with the rolled pouch EZ Template. I have a Cricut so was unable to use the SVG file so I just printed it on patterned card and cut it out. I inked the edges of all my pieces and then assembled with score tape. All of the bits and bobs were in my off cut tin and the metal word was free on a magazine years ago. Thanks for stopping by Hugs Jayne

I am back

Good  evening everyone.
 It has been quite some time since my last post and I feel that I am now ready to tell you why. Almost 3 weeks ago my mother sadly passed away after being ill for quite some time. Although very ill and having recently being diagnosed with cancer her death was not expected to happen quite so quickly. It came as they say like a bolt out of the blue leaving the whole family in a state of shock and turmoil.

     She was a big part of our lives and will leave a massive hole that will be impossible to fill. Over the years my mother played carer to nearly all of her 7 grandchildren while I and my siblings went to work and without her none of us would have been able to provide for our children as we have so for this and many other things I am eternally grateful to her.

" Sleep well mum"

It's challenge time again at Diva's by Design. The Theme is to Tie a Ribbon sponsored by2 CuteInk.



For my design team card have kept it quite simple and used stingray kids by 2 Cuteink. I stamped the image onto some white card and coloured using Copics. I found the sentiment in my bits and bobs box so am not sure who it is by. I then wrapped the card in acetate and and glittered the bubbles and the sand on the acetate with stickles. I felt I had a bit of a blank spot so I went back to my stamp draw and found the little diver. The blue ribbon is by American crafts which I found at TK Maxx .
