Addicted to Stamps ” Make your Mark ” and ” The Fullness of Time “

Hello lovely ladies,  hope I find you all wonderfully well and fighting fit. Darnell if you are reading this I hope your back is better and you are avoiding hammocks !
Time once again for another  challenge over at Addicted to Stamps were our theme is ” Make your Mark ”  In other words girls get out those markers and go to town,  you are free to make anything you wish as long as those markers are involved. I may be on the DT for ATS but my colouring leaves a lot to be desired as you will shortly see but if you pop over to ATS you will be truly inspired , no really I mean it, my team mates are so talented , I think they just let me join in cos they feel sorry for me. Anyways here are my offerings.

Gorgeous LaBlanche stamp, the wings , eyes and lips coloured with Promarkers and then glossy accents added to lips and eyes. When dry I rubbed all over, ( the image not me ) with pink Pan Pastels and added a Silver marker to the edge. Matted with blah blah blah and a little photo corner cut with my Cameo. Spellbinders Edgeabiliies for the border and some lovely grey pearls. Not satisfied with this I decided to treat you all to another mediocre card……

This lovely spellbinders die with holes in ( sorry don’t know the name, don’t have the packaging and too tired to look it up ) I cut two of them and joined them with a piece of card for the base. The stamp is Penny Black coloured with promarkers and once again Pan Pastels brushed lightly over the top , Ta da !!!

I would just like to thank everyone who has supported us over the past few weeks at ATS , we are a new challenge blog with a fabulous DT  ( except for me ) and we love to see your wonderful crafty creations . I do hope you will pop over and pay us a visit and maybe even take part we would dearly love to see your gorgeous work.

Lately I have been begging your forgiveness for my lack of commenting and said in previous posts that all will be revealed in ” The Fulness of Time ” about my secret mission. well I have had several emails ( ok five ) from nosey crafters who obviously are too impatient to wait for ” The Fulness of `time ” to take its course. There were also some super cheeky bloggers one being Maria from Made by Maz ,  who even had the audacity to try to bribe my sister Karen of  Tricky Little Stiches  with lace and ribbons and I think even a little fabric was offered in order to find out what I was up too !! Can you believe it,  what a nerve, luckily my little sister refused or so she says although she did mention she may be meeting up with Maria in the not too distant future so looks like you can’t even trust family !!! Once again everything has been blown out of proportion and my little crafty secret now seems so insignificant I feel as if I should make something up but I just can’t think of anything interesting.

I will just leave you with a couple of photos as  a taster if you will,  am sure the cleverer among you will work it out …….more photos to follow……….in ” The fullness of Time ”

take care

Make My Monday ” Any Flower With Music “

What two posts in two days havent done that in a while ! There I was whingeing as usual and saying my muse had ” done a bunk ” and she upped and appeared !!! Cleaning out the craft cave certainly helped ! So I thought I would share the card I made for Make My Monday lots of lovely blogging friends on the DT here. They are asking us to create a card with any flower and music the flower being the main focus, just as well as you can hardly see the music on mine !

I  made a heart out of air dry Fimo and stamped with this Penny Black stamp while still moist, when dry I coloured the heart with one of my Letraset markers. The aperture was cut with spellbinders frames and backed with some lovely old music paper. The little gem is made using one of my silicone moulds. I stamped a border of music notes inside the card and forgot to take a photo duh !!!!

A close up to show the dimension of the card and my terrible colouring in !

Why not pop over to Make My Monday to see the fabulous inspirational work by the lovely and talented design team.

Right off to work will be by to see you all later
