Get Creative Card Challenge ” Hearts ” and I’ve Been Featured !

Hello lovely ladies

This is going to be one heck of a long post so if you haven’t had your beverage of choice yet I suggest you grab one and take a seat.

October 6th was world card making day and it also happened to be Get Creatives three-year anniversary . Last year each member of the Team set their own challenge and offered a prize, is was such a success that Irini the big honcho has decided to make it a regular feature each year. Although due to ill-health and some  personal problems during this year I decided to resign from the team ( which I miss terribly ) Irini kindly invited me  back to be part of the celebrations for the Get Creative three year anniversary,  so here I am and I have to say it’s been lovely to be back even if it’s just for this challenge. So the same applies as last year, each DT member has chosen their own theme and will also choose a winner. So what did I choose


Although I’m not the romantic kind of girl hearts tend to feature a lot in my card making and to be honest I’m in need of a little inspiration . I totally adore them so……I would like for you to help me out by sharing your heart creations with me. ( cunning eh ) You can use as many or as few as you like be it digi, stamped die cut anything as long as I can see a heart. My winner for this challenge will receive Siligum Modelling Paste which is a really fun and simple way to make your own moulds.

So come and see what I made


I wont bore you with all of the details I think it’s quite obvious what I did but a fair bit of crackle medium was involved !


Cameo magic ! Triple layering


The hearts in the frame are cut from an I-phone cover that I got in Tiger


This cute stamp is from Papermania Urban Stamps , GA over copics and SU hearts embossing folder .

My prize


Now I wouldn’t normally show four cards but I was shamed into it by the other DT members who all created so many for their challenges one seemed kinda mean. If you’re not a fan of hearts don’t worry there are so many other challenges running , 12 to be precise , there’s  something for everyone and each DT member is offering a prize, why not take part in all of them !!!! There will be an additional prize for one lucky winner chosen by random generator whoever he is , and has been generously donated by our sponsor

You have until the 10th of November to upload your card. So why not pop over to Get Creative  I would love to see you there for my last challenge and just want to say a big thank you to Irini who took a chance on me when I had only been making cards for a few months . I had a fabulous time working with the most amazingly talented, warm-hearted ladies and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Fascinating Fridays

I’m not finished with you yet…..just wanted to do a little trumpet blowing , I was very shocked and privileged to be the featured artist ( their words not mine )  for Paperie Designs Studio for a section of their blog called Fascinating Fridays .  I was shocked because they have featured some amazingly talented ladies all of whom are inspirations to me . So if you want to know a little more about me then I would love to see you over there.

Right think I’ve kept you long enough.

Have a wonderful week and look forward to seeing your heart creations.

Take care
