New Challenge at WW

It's our Wedding Anniversary today!! 
We have been together over 25 years 
but had a long engagement......10 years!!!!
Well you have to be sure!!

Onto our new Challenge at Winter Wonderland.

Kath is hosting this challenge and she has chosen the theme
'Snowmen'.

Please remember all entries must be Christmas cards only.

You might think, pretty obvious as the theme is snowmen!!
But there are some people that have birthdays
at Christmas. So we say 'Christmas cards only'.

I must admit, I have a bit of a love affair with Snowmen
and I am very fussy as to how they look!!
This one passed as he has a lovely big smile!

He was given to us from our lovely Sponsor
He is called 

The background I made using TH Distress Oxide Inks.
It was my first venture to use them and really enjoyed
trying them on different papers. 
I bought them from The Craft Barn and I think I will
be buying a few more colours.
It's free postage, so you can order any amount you want.

I used Copics to colour him with.


Our Sponsor for this challenge is
Stamping Studio.

The prize is amazing.....
1 image from each Artist!!!

Have a look at the site Here.



So get your Christmas stash out. Blow off the dust and 
dig out your snowmen stamps!!

It's very hot here in Sunny Suffolk as I write
up my blog. 
Ideal for a cooling down.....making Christmas cards!!Lol!!
You can then see all the glitter you have on the floor!!

Looking forward to seeing your cards and we will
leave a message on your blog, to say we have been!!

Thanks for dropping by
and as you know I love reading your messages.

Big hugs,
Carol

Make a wish

Firstly, I must thank all of you, for the lovely
messages that you left me, here and on FB, regarding
the loss of my lovely friend Alison.
It still feels surreal and I am waiting for her to call me!

I am trying to make some small things for my next
Craft Fayre, which is on Saturday 24th June. 
It's a combination of Farmers Market and Village Fayre
at Flegg High School at Martham.

This card is using one of Lili of the Valley's new 
release stamps.
She is called 'I Believe in Fairies'

I do, as I have them in my Craft Room.
I put something down and they either move it away
from where I put it, or they make it disappear!! 

I coloured her with Distress Inks.


A touch of Stickles of course!


This flower is a plant called Cistus, in my garden.
One of my favourite plants but never had such a big flowers.
They look like screwed up tissue.


We have friends coming up at the weekend.
The weather is supposed to be dry and sunny.

I could just do with a bit less wind!!....Not me!!
The wind has been rather strong and damaged 
some of my plants.

Thanks for stopping by and for your kind messages you
leave me. 
You are all so kind.

Big hugs,
Carol

Wedding Belles

My Mojo left me for the month of May!! 
Don't know where it went but I do know why!

I will update you soon but for now,
 I love the new Lili of the Valley stamps and just bought a few.
For now I might add!!

This is my new wedding favourite stamp.
Simple title....The Bridesmaids

I took some photos of my card on Monday, but they
looked blue so I didn't want to post them.
On Tuesday I took it in it's box I had made, to the Craft Fayre
I was doing that day.
I quickly took a picture of it as I wanted it on my table.

Well it was there for about 10 minutes and then it was sold!! 


It's on a 7" x 7" card and stamped on The Langton watercolour card.
I used Distress Inks to colour them with.
Stickles was added onto ribbons and head dresses.


I am so hoping that mojo will come back soon, as I have
loads of stock to make, for another Fayre in a couple of weeks.

Thanks for visiting my little blog and I do so love 
the lovely messages you leave me. 
It's like getting a hug from my blogging friends.

Big hugs,
Carol
