Rudolf Day In June

Good morning and happy Sunday. Well we're another month nearer Christmas, it doesn't seem like two minutes since I was sharing my last Christmas card. I must admit I do like a bit of a prompt when I have cards to make, so when I saw that Happy Little Crafters had a 'trees' challenge I was very happy to go along with that.

So we have Dylusion papers and stamps, fussy cutting (yawn) and glitter.

This is the stamp, I've just stamped and chopped the layers, and coloured with Paper Artsy paints.

I'm really pleased that I've made a card each month this year though I know some people will have made hundreds by now. In fact I must have enough stamps and papers to make a thousand without repeating myself. Don't tell Neil but I've already bought more of both for this year lol.

Have a great weekend, and thanks very much for looking x

Dream It, Wish It, Do It

Good morning and happy Friday. The Happy Little Stampers have started a new ATC challenge, and as I haven't made an ATC for ages (and ages and ages) I thought I would join in. The first theme is flowers, and this is what I've made.

All the stamps are by Rubber Dance.

I've used acrylics and brusho's.

And Textured Flowers, and Think Again. These are available in the store and if you add SDFreeShip the postage is free on orders of 15 euro's and above.

I really enjoyed making these, I'll not leave it as long next time!

Have a wonderful weekend and thanks very much for looking x

Not My Circus

Good evening and happy Wednesday from a very hot and sticky Pontefract.  If horses sweat, gentleman perspire, and ladies gently glow, my 'glow' will be seen from outer space! Is that too much information?...
I'm here to share my last 'Things With Wings' piece for Lost Coast Designs.


This has two of my favourite things, on the same piece, this quote, and flying monkeys. I had no idea Leonardo said this first, but it says so here so it must be true!
This has been made with Leonardo's Accesories, Steampunk Pony, Fish and Heart Set, from Lost Coast, and Flying Monkey and Not My Monkeys from Carmens Veranda.
So we now have two challenges for you to join in, Postcards  and Things With Wings. I hope to see you over on the portal with yours.
Have a great evening, and thanks very much for looking x

Art Dreams

Good afternoon and happy Tuesday. As promised I'm back with the second page for my new small art journal.

This also has a DOX background, and I've used Loopy Calligraphy and Art Doll, both from Lost Coast Designs.

These are both pages together.

And in the album.

So please join in with our I Can Fly challenge. You don't have to use our stamps, but it's always more fun if you do.
Thanks very much for looking, and see you again tomorrow xx

Good afternoon and happy Monday. There's a fun event over on the Lost Coast Portal To Creativity called 'We Can Fly'. This is what I made.

I've used a DOX background, and Lynnea, Loopy Calligraphy, and my favourite Miscellaneous Words. This will be a page in my mini journal. 

If you pop back tomorrow I'll show you how it looks inside. 
Have a great day, and thanks very much for looking x

We're All Going On A Summer Holiday

Good morning and a very happy Thursday. We're halfway through the month already, so it's time for a new challenge at Rubber Dance, and in keeping with the warmer weather, we've chosen Summer Holidays. Here's my holiday postcard.

I started by colouring a postcard with sprays and Distress Oxides. This was my first real play with the DO's and I was very impressed.

Then I started with the stamping, I've used Retro Beach and some bubble wrap and gesso for texture.

Obviously a postcard needs a stamp, so I've used a Norwegian one from Bibi that was on the envelope that my stamps came in. The postmark is from Artfully Stamped

These images are all from Retro Beach. I've made a Distress Oxide background, then stamped in a DO and sprayed again with water. I really do like the vintage effect.

Here they are all sewn down.

This is the nearest you'll ever get to a holiday postcard from me - it used to spoil my holiday thinking what to write on a card - a phone call is much easier :-)

So please get in the holiday mood and join in with our challenge, you may win some wonderful Rubber Dance stamps. 

As always the stamps are P&P free on orders 15 Euros and above by quoting SDFreeShip. Have a fun day, and thanks very much for looking x
