Prior to Indiana I bought some fab papers from WHSmith, 12 x 12 Dovecraft Kate Knight designer pack Aquamarine floral prints. I will show you tomorrow! They were only £4.99 another bargain!!!!
So have done well today. I made a card too and this is using pink petticoat flowers doodle-icious Rainbow! I also used Amethyst Dovecraft 8 x 8 papers and a dotty brad I had lying around...

So here I am sitting at my laptop whilst it is tipping down outside after having to retrieve the washing very quickly earlier. It started out as such a sunny morning.
I have made this card with one of my new stamps, I think this is my favourite stamp. I used 'the big one' papers from papermania for the background and coloured it with watercolours.
Thank you dddeeebbbzzz for the fab award you sent me. I guess I can send it on to 4 creative people...
So here goes:
I love the look of cleocrafts and the jewellary she makes so sending it to Mandi
and finally to Jay who proves she is definitely anything but boring! I love the scrap pages she creates!
Well done for your fantastic creativity you deserve the award and more!!!!!

As you can see I have been busy attempting to make simple coloured backgrounds and a funky purple spiral one. This is my first attempt and I hope to get a lot better than these attempts. It's all about practice and trying to see what works isn't it?
I did try to make the purple one for my friend Debs but then halfway through thought oh no it's not straight, so sorry Debs.
Anyhow off to play with my new stamps and finish a commisioned card for another friend. If you do want to use these papers right click and save picture as then you can print out however many copies. If you don't want to that's fine too.

I have finally blogged. I have also completed a challenge from stamp something I decided this stamp as it was bought a while ago and had not been used. So it's the 'first' time I have used it and is perfest for a 'first' birthday!
I used a dark brown card for the background and marvy le plume pens with a water brush. This was really a challenge as I had no idea what to do and asked many friends if they had any ideas. I finally decided to choose this stamp and it was tricky to colour and took more than one time to accurately colour without any bleeding. This is the third not first attempt at making the picture!

Yes I have attempted the bird challenge Rainbow lady set. I must admit I really tried to draw a hummingbird but not very good! Never mind I tried it anyhow and this is why I use stamps and the craft robo.
The background paper is Dovecraft Amethyst and there are some lovely papers in there! Well have had a very busy weekend, I have had lots of people round our house on Saturday so major clear up. All went well and had a fab time. Also sold £12 worth of cards fro Welcare in the 2 hour open morning which I was chuffed about. I didn't think I would sell any. Then Sunday went out with parents to Twickenham and then had friends and God children round for the rest of the afternoon. So no real time for crafting. Mind you many of you sound like you have been enjoying the sunshine. I picked up my shared order of moonglow sunburst stains so looking forward to play with those.

Here are the last of the cards I made for next Saturdays Welcare fundraising. I know that I am going to be really nervous as this is the first time my cards have gone on sale. I have made commisions for friends and made cards to match for family and friends but this is really different...
I am trying to stop myself from buying up lots of craft stuff at the moment as last month I spent most of my money within the first two weeks. It's like trying to give up chocolate for me, I am sure Debz will confirm this as she has seen me in action at craft fairs/exhibitions.
I will probably succomb and buy something by the end of the day, like the fluffles stamps that I have waited to get, so far. I am a craftaholic and proud of it!

I have used a guitar stamp and chalked it to make a blue type background to it. I used blue patterned paper from papermania (the big one) really cheap 200 12 x12 sheets.
I used the craft robo to cut rock and roll title. As you can see it's in my wonky style but I think that's ok.

Just been at a friends party having a lovely meal and chocolate pudding! Now I feel very very full that to full to move feeling.
I had some very strange conversations with friends of mine. All I can say is I felt the sane one there and that's saying something lol. We did have a laugh and we all noticed our eccentricities that night. All I am saying is I am fighting to make the world curly wurly.
Friends are important to me and having a laugh or making everyone smile even at my own expense is brilliant. It keeps you going through good and hard times, it also makes your time out of or in work that much better. So thank you anyone/everyone who makes me smile or laugh.
I will hopefully be able to share more cards after tomorrow so keep your eyes peeled....
