Sugarbowl Challenge No25- Lilian's Sketch

Oh crap!!!...excuse my french but just realised my entry for sugarbowl challenge needs to be in by midnight tonight about an hour away and I have no card.To not enter would be a no no for me as I simply could not and will not miss the chance to win 12 Sugar Nellie Stamps. You would think that three weeks would be long enough right?? Only realised when another blogger was reminding someone else isn't that funny.
40mins later hubby currently taking pics as I write this post,god bless him.Finally here is my card finished but not 100% happy with it.There's just something not quite right with it but no time will change later.Ooops nearly forgot favourite colour is pink!!

Here is the sketch
Here's my recipe for this card

Cardstock-The Papermill
Flowers-X-cut daisy punch
Gems-Papermania shimmer dots
Sentiment-gold peeloff

ABC Christmas Challenge

Ladies, Christmas has indeed come early for 201o, to be exact Dec 30th 2009. This is launch day for the new sister ABC christmas challenge blog. Yes you did read correct not a misprint.

When I first read this on my friend Dawns blog I was so excited. The sheer thought of putting away my Christmas papers and stamps was simply heart breaking. Also yet again I failed this year to make a card for everyone and had to send some shop bought ones.So this challenge blog is perfect. I have also came across some gorgeous creations like boxes, gift bag and tags etc that I so wanted to make but again didnt have time.

So if you are like me always behind at Christmas why not pop over and join the girls. They also have a blog hop until Dec 30th.

Hope you all had a great Christmas and looking forward to seeing all your wonderful creations in 2010.

hugs clare

The little girl is quicky fading and I really need to remind myself she is no longer the 4 year old flower girl at my wedding.

The ingredients ....

flowers- punched with value pm gemstones
cardstock-The Papermill
colouring-Whisper markers watercoloured using koi water brush
shoes- coloured using sakura stardust pens

Sugarbowl Challenge No22- Kathy sketch

This is my first ever entry for the sugar bowl challenge and I have to say what a challenge.To be honest my head was all over the place after receiving sad news regarding close friends of mine. I thought a challenge card would be a good distraction but it only gave me a headache and I didn't really enjoy my wee craft night.But lets move on and talk about my card.

I knew it had to be a christmas card since I have only made two to date.Pretty poor as I had high hopes for this year but he ho it's a start.Next challenge was deciding which image to use. The Sugar Nellie stamps are all beautiful but I finally decided to use winter wonderland so thankyou to my buddy mel for giving me such a wonderful image.Then I read you had to include lace, my first thought was oh my god I have no lace can't do challenge.But then I remembered Susie gave me a wee stash of ribbon when we meet up the other week so challenge card was back on the cards again.Choosing the papers was the easy part, I just love them not because they are beautiful but because they were a bargain aswell on craftsuperstore website.

When I finally finished my card I didn't really know what I thought of it, was it good, was it bad who knew.What I did know was I needed some sleep and soon.So your comments would be grateful on this one.


Below is this weeks sketch and why not pop over to the sugarbowl challenge blog and see the beautiful cards made by the DT members.


Here's my wee card

ingredients are as follows

backing papers-DCWV christmas cardstack
cardstock-The papermill
stamp-Sugar Nellie from Funkykits(winter wonderland)
large snowflake brads - PM
punched small snowflakes
sentiment-peel offs
gemstones-pm value
colouring-watercoloured using whisper markers
lace-given to me by my friend Susie-thankyou

MAWTT Challenge No 15- Heidi's sketch & Theme

So here is the sketch and if you want to join in the fun why not pop over to MAWTT


I have so missed my challenge cards these past few weeks and when that window of opportunity finally made an appearance, I jumped at the chance to join the girls over at Moving Along With The Times.

However don't be fooled,I also had another wonderful reason for crafting and here is my confession....

During a wee visit at Buzz (soft play) with the boys, my best bud Susie and her gorgeous wee boy Euan. I was given a wee stash and who was inside but the fabulous Daisy. Well,boy was I wishing it was bedtime for the boys!!!All afternoon all I could think about was Daisy and my gorgeous backing paper which I had been secretly keeping for Daisy.Which by the way has been months!!

So now I had Daisy and my papers, all I needed now was inspiration and a challenge and after seeing Heidi's sketch it was perfect.Well almost, the paper piercing was certainly a challenge as I had never used this technique before. To be completely honest I had no idea what to do and so I finally decided to paper pierce the stitching on Daisy's jeans and T-shirts.Hope this is ok girls.


Here's my wee recipe..

*cardstock-The Papermill
*image-Daisy by Sugar Nellie @ Funkykits
*gems-vaule PM
*colouring-Whisper markers and Koi water brush
*backing paper-sorry cant remember

cardstock was embossed using Cuttlebugs swiss dots embossing folder and my Sizzix Bigshot (gift from Susie)


Thanks for popping by

My birthday

I would like to say thankyou to all my buddies who sent me birthday presents last week, it was like christmas come early and you were all so generous.I will try and get some thankyou cards made and sent out as soon as I can.

I would also like to say thankyou to Emma for the great Candy I won the other week, it's fab.

Well bye bye for now my wee spare half hour is up, off to do the boring stuff like ironing, emptying dishwasher etc I will stop there as its' depressing me just thinking about it.

Happy blogging
Clare xxx


Yes, thought I would apologise for being a bad blogger since last week.Hubby has been sent out to Romania with work and since last Wednesday it's been bedlam.I have entered no blog challenges, left few comments, no blog hopping and the worst of all no crafting and to be honest I feel like my limb has been cut off.

I have arranged a craft night with my friend and buddy Susie this Wednesday and hopefully I will get some crafting done tomorrrow.I am in the middle of making a box card for my sister in-law, who is bridesmaid to a friend of hers.The weddings not until the middle of October so still got a wee while to go.

I will try and keep in touch the best I can and please visit me and leave a wee comment, even just to say hi.

Missing you all

MAWTT Challenge 11-Clare C's Sketch

It's time to get the Kleenex tissues out, no I haven't still got the flu but my final week as guest DT member over at MAWTT.You have probably heard this a million times now but I really did have a fab time.I got a buzz knowing that I had the sketch on the Friday before the challenge started and then had to wait til the thursday before I could upload my card.Your probably thinking she's mad but it made me happy and you can't put a price on that.So for the final time thankyou to all the DT members on MAWTT and I would like to wish them every success in all they do.


This weeks prize up for grabs is a set of stamps from Julie their resident sponser so pop over to MAWTT where you will find the link to her shop.


If you are up for the challenge below is Clare C's sketch and yet again its a good one.The theme this week is stitching whether it be real or faux.

This is my interpretation on Clare's sketch.To be honest when I first received this sketch my mind went utterly and completely blank, not that there's much in there at the best of times.So after a night of no inspiration whatsoever and worrying that I have lost my mojo, I decided that perhaps a good nights sleep is in order.Well it worked, the following day my mum mentioned she loved my maggie stamp and as it's her birthday the day after mine I just had to dedicate this card to my mum.

Here's the recipe

backing papers -NME bloom and grow
buttons ,sentiment and felt border-NME bloom and grow
circle-friskers template
scalloped circle- scissors
gem stone- value Papermania
stamp- Maggie with Flowers from Funky Kits
cardstock-The Papermill
Stitching-Whisper markers
