Geekin' It

am setting aside some me time these days for crafting!!  I have managed to sneak some time in today while the kids were doing homework to play with this lovely Saturated Canary Geekin' It stamp from Little Darlings Rubber Stamps.  I decided to create a congratulations card maybe for a graduation or passing exams.  I used sugar loaf whispers pens and created a water colour effect.  I added My Mind's Eye Howdy Doody papers and a wee tag from Maggie Holmes Ephermera pack.  I also used Howdy Doody rub ons and some flowers and pearl jems to finish off.  Hope you like x

Hopefully it qualifies for the following challenges::

Another Christmas card today.  A layout inspired by Rosemary Merry who demonstrated it on Create and Craft.  I have used this lovely Robin stamp and some co-ordinating Christmas papers.  I love how it turned out.  Hope you like x

This week my son became a teenager!!! Where does the time go???  It is quite difficult to think of a card to make for him due to the fact that - he's a teenager and doesn't really take much interest in the card and so I thought I would try my way with words cd which has loads of fun words and sentiments on it.  It was a very quick card.  I printed it out on pearl card, added a bit of glitter and printed out another one so that I could cut out some letters and add glossy accents.  I was quite pleased with the end result especially as it was very quick and easy and he actually quite liked it!! Hope you like.

Normal Service Resumes!!!

After a long hot summer, enjoying being off with the kids during their school holidays, I have returned to my crafty corner at last.  The sun has disappeared and normal weather service of rain has resumed!!

A few months ago, I posted a Saturated Canary image that I had coloured "Summer".  It reminds me a lot of my youngest and I promised her I would make something with it and at last I have!! This wall hanging is perfect for her - she is certainly one of a kind, funny, quirky and loves to laugh!!  Hope you like x

I would like to enter this wall hanging in the following challenge:
