Goodbye 2009 and Hello 2010

I'd just like to say hope everyone had a good Christmas and to wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year.

I am making a New Year's resolution to be a better blogger.

I bought myself some fab crafting stash with my Christmas pennies including some Copics so have been busy playing, although not easy with the children at home. Finding it hard to concentrate.

Anyway I've made this one with Mo's digital image "You're my Best" and I'm really pleased with it. The Gemstone and Whitewash Cardstock were from the sale at Craft Superstore and Glitterpot. Papers from DCWV stack and flowers from stash. Chalked and glittered them along with the edge of the nestie. The little charm came all the way from South Africa in some Christmas Goodies from a DT pal.

Happy New Year!

Cards with new stash

Well as the weather was so cold and horrible yesterday I decided to have a play with some of my new stash from my prize draw win.

Made a few simple cards, it was nice to do something other than Christmas Cards, which have all been sent, so that's them over and done with for another year.

Lili of the Valley Unicorn and Dragon coloured with Promarkers with My Minds Eye papers and Coredination cardstock

Monkey stamp by Stampendous coloured with Promarkers and DCWV papers

Happy Elephants by Little Claire, paper pieced with My Minds Eye paper, flowers and grass coloured with Promarkers.

Sarah Kay - A Kiss for Chloe, this one took a little longer as I paper pieced it using two different My Minds Eye papers, hair and skin coloured with Promarkers.

Co-ordinating card, candle and tag

This card and candle for my Daughter's Pre-School teacher. All using Forever Friends stamps, the candle and tag were coloured with Promarkers and the card is a quickie using an embossed card blank which has been chalked and the image coloured with Prisma`s.

Part of this is actually the new Totally Gorjuss Challenge starting tomorrow but I'm not telling you which bit, you'll have to wait and see.

Easel Calendar

YIPPEE, finally finnished my Christmas cards. I was going to have a card free night then remembered I had some of those little calendars, not much use next year, so I've made this is Easel Card with a Calendar for my Daughter's form teacher, who looks a bit like Miss Anya.

The papers are Papermania, Oval Nellie Snellen die, image coloured with Promakers.

Totally Gorjuss DT Challenge - Free and Easy

Sorry folks should have posted this on Friday, completely forgot in the excitement of my parcel and out all day today at craft meet.

Anyway as it's such a busy time for everyone at the moment what with a certain word beginning with C and ending in mas we've decided to go with an easy challenge "Free and Easy" therefore you can submit whatever you like.

I chose this lovely image from Mo's Digital Pencil "Winter Delivery" coloured with Prisma's, the papers are DCWV and the flowers are from Quixotic and McGill pine leaves punch.

WOW WOW WOW - look what I won!

A good day got even better, did the school fair and made over 70.00 which was fantastic. Then came home to find a parcel waiting, a very large and heavy one. Had no idea what it was, I've ordered some stamps but nothing that big.

Imagine my face when I opened it to find this lot

I've won a prize draw in The Stampers Complete Handbook, forgot I entered it way back in the summer. I am absolutely gobsmacked, I was jumping up and down like a kid in a sweet shop, hubby thought I'd gone mad.

Just need to find a home for it all. There's Elusive Images, Woodware, Lili of the Valley, Joanna Sheen, Blonde Moments, Little Claire to name a few plus a heatgun and embossing powders! Out of all of it there was only a clear set of Penny Black's I'd already got.

I am grinning from ear to ear and shall be for a long time to come.

1st Brayered picture

Been playing with my new brayer and Clarity Stamps. Had a few messy attempts but finally managed to do this.

The verse reads:

God, Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference, Amen.

My hands looked like they were covered in fake tan by the end of it and it had plenty of fingerprints on Martin Parker would be proud of, managed to hide them though.

Not quite Barbara Grey but quite pleased with it. Not sure what I`m going to do with it though.

It`s the Serenity stamp set with Big n Juicy stamp pad in Spice

Totally Gorjuss DT Challenge 8

Whilst we are still on Friday (just) it's a new challenge over at Totally Gorjuss.

This week it's a sketch from Net, made a nice change to do something quick and simple.

I used K&Co papers with an image from Mo's Digitial Pencil it's from the Collection Danni and Friends. This is actually one of the few that have been released by Mo as a clear stamp. Coloured it with Promarkers and cut it out with a Nellie Snellen die.

Added a few gems and a sentiment to finnish.
