Challenge Notebook

To get myself more organised I've made myself a little Craft Challenge Notebook to note down challenge requirements & the date they need to be done by.

I covered the notebook & used the toning back of the 12x12 paper for the title block

I stamped the sentiment

I then cut out the flowers & positioned them in the corner

and in the lower corner popped them on the end of the stamped stems.

Finished with some faux stitching round the edge using my white gel pen after handwriting the title.

Have you seen................

the Mega Candy over on the Charmed Cards & Crafts blog?
See my side bar! :-)

This is a Charmed Mikey download that I coloured with my copics. Just love him lounging against the car :-)

Halloween postcard

This is my postcard for the postcard swap over on UK Stampers

Can you guess this months theme?

Yes it's Halloween :-)

Firstly I used my distress ink pads to lay down the blue & orange & where they overlap they give a spooky greeny colour.

I stamped the images & then used distress crackle glaze  to highlight & give the spooky feel

I distress crackle glazed the body of the spider & attached it to the spider web stamped in the corner using a drawing pen.

Finally I stamped the date

A Huge Thank You

to my wonderful blogging friends for not giving up on me with no blog posts for so long. 

Unfortunately life got in the way in the form of dodgy health problems, the building work we are doing atm is causing chaos, the good news is that we actually have the heating back up & running finally!!, the house is such a mess everywhere & I couldn't get near my craft room (it's not much better now but I've beaten a path to my work desk after the withdrawl symptoms kicked in majorly!!) family members health problems, my poor puss cat is really poorly ............................ the list goes on & on 

but we did get a weeks holiday in Cornwall at the time of the beautiful weather :-)
Followers of my blog will know that I usually take some crafting bits & craft & blog whilst on holiday but this year it just didn't work out ......

So a Huge Thank You to you all for hanging in there
