Happy heart ,happy home

 Paper from Pebbles,a heart punch and rub on lettering. If you were wondering why the house isn't in the middle of the card it's because I wanted the flowers to show through the windows.

Amusing challenges - sketch above -the shape made me think of a house. Thanks to the team for my win last week.

Unstampabelles - challenge 15 -Dry embossing -My little house is swiss dots embossed.

Starlight ,Starbright

This is my first time using the new blogger and I'm not impressed ,I suppose I will sort it out eventually.I would have liked a bigger pic of the main card and a smaller pic of the bear.Well what do you know I've managed to change the size.
I've had a change from the usual card making and made my own background.The little bear is coloured with copics and promarkers .A touch of glitter on his boot,mitten,scarfe and hat.

Papercraft Star -challenge 113 - Use a star.

Lovely Lilac

Challenge 54 at The Lollipop Ladies -Gobstoppers -Pick a colour and stick with it.Our sponsor is Mad for Markers. The chandelier stamp is from Kaisercraft and it's been sitting around for over a year and this is the first time I've used it. I took 3 attempts to get it perfect and now I know why I don't often use stamps.

Tuesday Throwdown - challenge 115 -You're a Gem-That's not the best pic to show off the gems,I will have another go later.

back to school

Ok, if you read the last post I've stopped sulking,I haven't had any chocolate ,YET . I've cleared my craft table and had some lunch so here it is. I think my mistake was to add the bright pink tag .

Broken Box Stock - challenge 8 - Brown Bag - I printed flowers on my bag and coloured them which was not my best idea,the paper was so thin it got jammed in the printer so I had to stick the bag together,two sentiments are also on the brown paper bag.Thanks to BBS for the image.

Crafty Creations - challenge 186 - Back to School.

Incy Wincy - Back to School -Those dreaded exams -so pleased that part of my life is over.
