Craftalicious Challenge 7

Hi All

Another quick post tonight as my parents are coming tomorrow so I've got loads of things to do tonight and I'm trying to squeeze in another card.

I have followed the colour combo of green and purple set by the lovely Tasha at Craftalicious. It really was a challenge but I enjoyed making it.

I have used the lovely Willow with Champagne from Whiff of Joy which has to be my favourite stamp and coloured it with Promarkers. Flowers and papers scraps are from my stash. The punched border and corners are made using the Martha Stewart rings punch around the page set.

I am entering this card into the following challenges...

Craftalicious - Green and purple colour combo
Sunday Sketch and Stamp - Sketch
CES Challenge - Anything Goes

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend.

Halloween Card - Karen's Doodles

Hi All

It's been a while since my last card due to stash being boxed up but here is my first one. The gorgeous image was a freebie from Karen's Doodles who now has a facebook group. The bat background paper that I have used is a free printable from Printable Heaven.

I have really enjoyed making this and hope that I will get another card made to post tomorrow so fingers crossed!

I did it :o)

Well I've managed to get to my stash. Now for dinner, bath kids and settle them to bed and let the crafting commence.

So Happy :o)

Enough is Enough I need my stash...

Hi All

I hope you are all well. Sorry I have not been blogging much but with my stash still boxed away I have found it hard to even look at anything craft related as I really want to just sit down and create something.

Well we still haven't had the heating fitted but it has been confirmed that there is no asbestos in the house. British Gas are now messing us around and have given and cancelled 3 new installation dates. We are now being told that it will be the beginning of October.

I just cannot be without my stash any longer but it is all packed under the stairs with a unit full of the OH's Books, DVD's, Videos and CD's in front of it. It's going to be a mammoth task to get to my boxes as it's not as simple as moving the unit, everything has to come off first but it has to be done.

Fingers crossed that I will be able to make something tonight :0)

Wish me luck...

Craft stash boxed away longer than I thought :o( And some sad news :o(

Hi All

Hope you are all well and crafting loads.

As some of you are aware my craft stash is boxed up in order to have central heating installed. How I have missed my bits!

On Monday the guys came to start fitting our heating at 9 am but they were gone by 9.15 am. They were doing final checks before starting and found an unrecognisable material in the airing cupboard which could be asbestos so therefore can't do anything until material is checked!

I completely understand the safety issues as my ex boyfriend (whom I was with for 11 years and I still speak to weekly) told me his Mum was only diagnosed a week ago with lung cancer due to asbestos...

How I cried, she is a lovely lady who has been a healthy happy person since I met her almost 20 years ago. I have everything crossed for you Trisha and you will come through this. John, you are always in my thoughts and stay strong xxx

Love and Hugs to all
