Happy Birthday



It seems that I haven't entered a challenge for ages and when I saw the super simple sketch at  CAS Colours and Sketches I simply had to have a go!
I've been having an extreme problem with lack of mojo of late and I think this is down to various factors. 
  • My time  is filled with vacations and looking after grandchildren
  • My craft room is so crammed with stuff that I can hardly move and I NEED to get rid of loads
  • My eyesight is giving me problems as I have cataracts and am hopefully awaiting surgery
  • I have been having IT techy problems and had to buy a new printer among other things
I think that's enough to be going on with!
Anyway here is a simple card, simple stamping, single image and a few tiny gems.
I hope you like it!

A New Year


Well another New Year has begun and with it I think I ought to make a resolution to blog a little more frequently than I have of late. My time seems to have been taken up with Granny duties and holiday breaks of various kinds so I really need to get into my craft room and get busy!
Here is my first card of the year for Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge.


As you may see the theme is Friendship... something we can't do without and I'm so grateful for all the friends I have made through my card making! Thanks all of you for your friendship!

Our winner for this challenge will receive a $20 coupon to spend at the shop! Check out all the details HERE.

IF YOU USE STAMPS BY HAPPY LITTLE STAMPERS AND YOU ARE OUR RANDOM WINNER, YOUR PRIZE WILL BE DOUBLED!

For this card I used stamps which were freebies with a magazine and a Wonky stitched die from Creative dies from Craft Stash.

Happy New Year

The New Year will be upon us before we know it so here is a little card in readiness. It's for the challenge at Happy Little Stamper's CAS section for December..
To make it I used dies from All Occasion Dies (The clock face) and (Happy) from Creative Dies from Craft Essentials, purchased from Craft Stash. The only bit of stamping is the New Year from Happy Little Stampers.
This is the first time I have used this die.. it's rather large and so in order to keep a reasonable amount of white space, I offset the dial and cut off the overhang!

Do join in the fun!

Happy Little Stampers Christmas

Another month and another card  for the Happy Little Stampers CAS  challenge!
This time, helpfully, the challenge is to make a Christmas Card.
For this card I used a sentiment die from Stamplorations, and jingle bells and thread from Memory Box. Actually the thread is part of a set which came with a needle (which I have never used, but the thread is really handy!)
The bells have been given a little dimension with a moulding tool thingy and popped onto dimensional pads.
