JCBC#57 ~simone ~and new look!!

here we are again monday morning and another sketch on ~todays sketch has been created by simone.

had such fun using this sketch ~as i`m guessing you can tell????

please pop on over to the sketch/challenge and see the other DT cards ~great inspiration and great prize!!

for my card i used some scrummy K&co papers (inside and out), tilda and edwin, birds, flowers/grass magnolia stamps, elzybells wording outside and personal impressions inside (who forgot a pic??), quickutz swirls and butterfly, flowers and ribbon from my stash. finished with some glitter.

thought i would show you the card from different angles (but forgot one of the inside)

as you may have seen my blog has taken a new look!! well it has been the same for two years now, ~yes two years ~ so thought i needed a change... took hours and nearly a divorce to get the header wrong!! (yes couldn`t get it the right size) ~then i found this fab blogger backgound changer (you know what i mean) ~and took me a few clicks and i did it on my own!! my husband still keeps looking at me with a frown and that look of "oh women and computers.. and that d*m blog!!!)

hope you have a wonderful day and a crafting week ~and look forward to seeing your creations.

a very sweet thankyou

today i am showing another thankyou card using edwin ~this is my new one ~oh just love him!! reminds me of my lewis so much!!(ofcause lewis has a nose and mouth!!)

used the fab sketch over on SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY. (link on side bar)

used K&co paper, magnolia edwin, quickutz sirls, nestabilities rectangles, see d`s wording and snag`em stamp (which i used with the wording in brown ink,so hard to see in pic)

hope you have a great day ~nearly the weekend!!!

aarons problems have got worse at school and had to speak to the police about the bullying etc ~i think now is the time to change to a understanding and caring enviroment ~so aaron can get down to sudying and not worrying if he is going to be attacked (it is now making him ill) ~so if anyone has any advice would love to hear from you!!

Q for queen

today i am showing an ATC following the ALPHABET CHALLENGE ~"Q is for queen" and MY TIME TO CRAFT~"in the frame"..... have added a question mark as well..found "Q" a little more difficult to add to this ATC!.. and thought red and gold was very regal!!
used rectangle nestabilities, sizzix alphabet and bang on the door stamp.

sorry i`ve not been about, but my boys have had a terrible tummy bug ~so plenty of dettol, hand spray and lots and lots of washing!!.. and had to cancel lewis`s birthday party ;~(

have a puurfect birthday ~DH

today i am showing a birthday card i have made for my DH~using the wonderful sketch over on FRIDAY SKETCHERS and following the challenge on PENNY BLACK~ "special someone" (link on sidebar)

used some new papers i have just received by brenda pinnick, this fab pennyblack image (stamped for me by my crafting friend jo) and also the clear pennyblack stamps, sizzix leaves , flowers and brad from my stash ~ finnished with a little glitter.

also today i would like to say what wonderful service i received from a new webstore in the USA i have just used. been after these stamps for ages ~so took the plunge and ordered a few (about 8 altogether) from ~fab prices and also purchase $20 (about £13) of stamps and get a free stamp of your choice ~also goes up to 2 free stamps with $50. dave the store owner takes paypal for over seas purchases, and also dave only charges the amount paid for p&p, so i got a nice refund in my paypal account.
i have met some wonderful, helpful people while purchasing my stamps this month ~with dave from rubbernecker, and jean and malcolm from crafty individuals.
hope you can take a look ~some fab stamps!

have a good day! ~and hope you get some crafting time!
