Where have I been?

Boy how the time fly's when you are busy, the last couple of weeks of school were just hectic for me, between end of term presentations, Parent Teacher interviews, two sports days at which I organize the catering for, throw in a couple of Tuckshop days as well that I do, and Finally I had a very excited 10 year old because he was turning 11 on Sunday although he has just invented a new age of eleventeen! lol Kids seem to want to grow up so fast, if only they really new the responsibility's of being an adult.
So with all that do you really need to ask where have I been?
Certainly not at my craft desk ;0(
But I do have something to show you, I made these CD cases a few weeks ago, I think they are great for when you are giving a CD for a gift to dress it up a little. I found the tutorial on the very clever Makeesha Byles web site

To all you Mums out there enjoy the hoildays, (no more lunches to make yeahhh)
and maybe even a sleep in....

More DVD cases

Well I told you I was off to make some more DVD cases, and here they are...
This is what they look like inside, as you can see the DVD fits nice and snug in there!
And yes that is a Barbie DVD and no I am not into watching them it is my 9 year old daughter Emily's the colours just went well...
Still have a couple of hours before I have to go and get the kids of the school bus, so may have a look at some of the challenges for the week. I promise no more DVD cases.

DVD Case

I was giving a friend of mine a DVD for her Birthday, So I decided to take Makeesha Byls CD case template and alter it to fit a DVD in, and here is my finished product...

May just have to go and make some more of these.

Black and White with a bit of colour thrown in...

The other day my good friend and stamping buddy Chris was over for our regular catch up coffee, there was no stamping this day but a lot of chatting about what we could stamp!!
After a deep and meaningful on black and white lol, we were motivated, so off we went to see what we came up with.... Now I know Chris has came up with a few black and white numbers but me... NO just the one that took all afternoon and went way beyond just the black and white, I hate days like that when you put a lot of work into something that could have taken 10 minutes oh well, will give it another go soon, or maybe I will just pinch one of Chris's for you to have a look at ;0)

Until next time

Another Day Another Challenge

Well I seem to be in my craft room more this week, so I am getting into the challenges.
Check out the sketch at Clean And Simple this week, this is what I came up with...

Boy am I going to miss some colours when they retire! Mellow moss would have to be near one of my favourites, so I must stock up, which reminds me to let you know, Stampin' Up have just told us that supplies of retired colour products are starting to get low, and word is that when they have gone... there gone. So if you were wanting to stock up on any make sure you get your order in sooner than later!!

Flannelette maybe?

If you haven't checked out Makeesha Byl's web site you are missing out! She is very talented and has great tutorials to make and fantastic cards. She also runs a weekly challenge and you know how I love the challenges!! I have played along with Keesh's challenges but have never entered one, but now I have a blog, there's no excuses, so here I go. I think I picked the worse week to start, firstly being a colour challenge, I much prefer sketches, but when you see the colours you'll know why it was really going to be a challenge.
The colour are.....
My first thought was using the Medallion stamp and so how I ended up with the look of a flannelette shirt and a male card still baffles me, but this is what happens sometimes.

I used my Going grey ink pad and swiped it across the card one way than used Real red and swiped it the other way and there you have it a Flanno look.
On looking back I should have roughed up the edges a bit more to give more of a worn feel, oh well next time.
Until Then

Clean but not so simple!

Last week was a sketch challenge over at Clean and Simple.
I have used my least favorite stamp set, well if I be truthful I would have to say I have grown to really dislike it. But I am not one to let the dust settle on things and I thought it suited this sketch, I have water coloured the flower with pretty in pink and regal rose using an aqua pen.
I used some of the Sweet Always DSP and rolled the strip in the middle with the Friendly words wheel.
Well now I can put this set back to rest until I have to really use it again lol.
Until next time
Happy Stamping
