X marks the spot.


Its been a while since I played along with Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge but as I dont do enough male/boy cards and the Challenge is "One for the Lads", this was the perfect time to do so.
Ever since  Ayce, my gorgeous Grandson) was born I'm really trying hard to do just that.
I have even got out my Alcohol Inks for the background DP thats behind my map stamp( Hero arts)  from my ATC days.
Sometimes its just great to go back and play with those techniques you learnt from soooooo long ago.
Im also found a couple of other challenges to enter...
Sisterhood of Crafters- Masculine/male/Boy

Splashes of Paint.


When Bec from Bizzy Becs showed us this lil guy a few weeks ago  the first thing that sprang to my mind was not mud all over him  but paint colours.
My inspiration for this card came about because this year I am working with the Kindy Kids again and I had forgotten how much work 3 1/2- to 4 years are and when they paint just how much goes on them and how much actually gets on the paper, bahahaha.Something I have to look forward to when Ayce gets a little older and  comes to Nana's house to play. Yes..... I am going to be one of those Nana's who will have all the creative things out for him to play with, there goes the house!!!!!
This lil guy is called Cody Covered a very approriate name one thinks. He is avalable right now over at Bizzy Becs store HERE as a digital.
Have you popped by Bizzy Becs Blog lately as Cody has a few friends in the collection that is aptly  called "Boyz will be Boyz" plus  an  accesories set to play with .
 My fellow Dt girls have made some amazing creations for you to see.
 There is a few cards made using  Cody Covered , he has been coloured to look like he is covered with mud  as well as you may see one or two who liked my idea and given him some splashes of paint colour,  it is so easy to change the look for him for a card.
 Im entering this into the following challenges...
Wild Orchid Challenge- anything goes

Love to you


WOW...... the time goes so quickly as  here we are again, the 5th of the Month and that means another fun and exciting challenge over at Bizzy Bec's. This month we have a colour challenge for you all and the colours are really gorgeous.......

Chocolate, Raspberry, Mint and Vanilla,  mmmm ice-cream flavours.
I have used a Magnolia stamp and those gorgeous Leaves and Flower, The Magnolia Doo Hickey Flower Die and The Heart with Key CC Designs die are all from Bizzy Becs Store, plus....The fabulous Heart Pearl Bead Bling is also from Becs, they are so pretty.
The  Rasberry/Red paper I made with distress inks as I could not find the right colour I needed from my stash.......I added some texture paste thru sequin waste and the letters were cut with my Slice machine.The vanilla DP paper was also made stamping a text stamp onto cardstock in lines and then I used a fabulous stamp that I have just found to give that grunge/spotty look around the paper.I also have used some bandage gauze on my card and alot of Tattered Angels Gold spray that for some unknown reason would not show up in the photo as in real life its is very shimmery.Anyways.........

im' late


Yes.... another tag but I recently found and discovered the amazing book from Tim Holtz- 'Compendium of Curiosities". This is a fabulous book that I have not been able to put it down since it arrived. A lot of the Techniques I have done from my ATC days but its good to go back  and re-play.
Then of all the good luck I then found a Challenge Blog-StudioL3 that each week you make a tag  following a technique from the book. Unfortunetly they are nearly at the end ...... tooooooo late again, Hence the title of my Tag, I'm Late, LOL.....
This week we needed to use a fragment piece- I have placed mine over the numbers.I also used Mo Manning's White rabbit, clock stamped onto acetate,collections chipboard door frame and keyhole, A music stamp I stamped onto tissue paper I then cut into long strips and then pleated, the vintage label is from the Graphics Fairy( thanks Emma for sharing  this site) and the fringed lace is from Bizzy Becs.
