Good afternoon out there.
I thought I would have a go at the A Spoon Full Of Sugar challenge 88
which is titled freestyle. (anything goes. that makes it easier!!)
I have done this one for a class at Sir Stampalot it has a lot of lovely goodies on it that they sell,( list down below) but have decided that it will take too long, to much cutting out, so back to the drawing board.
Have you ever had one of those cards that just gets thicker and thicker because you don't get it straight so you add another layer well this was one of those!
I'm still going with my song titles, It was nearly Dingle Dangle Scarecrow for those of you that are mums out there you will no which one I mean!
Here's the list of what Ive used
Scarecrow Rachel Anne Miller 64171
Its your day punched circle hero arts
Tuft of grass Scene it 99002 00125
Scallop Borders Hero arts CL2 88
Mushrooms, flower and little ladybird hero arts cl306
String around words circle is S U
Have a lovely evening Love Chris xxx

Love Dont Live Here Anymore

Over at Polkadoodles they are doing a love challenge so I thought I would enter this card
I think she looks a bit sad hence my title.
This is a card that I have done for Sir Stampalot using Mo Manning's Rae with Journal, I wasn't sure about her until I stamped her, but I thought with her ugg boots she would be quite popular for lots of ages, and now I've coloured in I love her.
The background stamp is Hero arts which I stamped whilst having coffee at Fleur's, go and visit her blog A passion for craft its well worth it.
The fence is magnolia.
The flowers hanging down are a Magenta set of stamps called botanicals
hope you like.
love Chris xx

Love is like a butterfly

Good evening everyone, hope you have had a nice day and been able to get a bit of crafting in.
Well I have but it wasn't this card as this is an old one and yes its red and green again sorry!
I am still sticking with my song title theme as I have been doing since the beginning of December
I wonder how many of you can remember the TV show this song title came from?
this is the only Butterfly stamp I own (Penny Black)but is one I really like,maybe need some more!
see you soon love Chris xx

Ice Ice baby

Good Morning Guys. Just thought I would show you my icicles from just before Christmas, they are on the back of my house, if you look you can see where the top of my doors are.

I remember Icicles when I was a child but don't ever remember them this long, I measured one at 40",I know its drizzly and horrible today but at least its a few degrees warmer.
see you soon
love Chris xx

Buttons and Bows

Good Afternoon out there everyone, and for all those of you who are snowed in isn't it great having some extra craft time!! My sons school is closed today, I'm not quite sure why as we only have an inch of snow, so my plans have not gone quite as expected but never mind I have got a lion I'm going to wrestle with, he is cute so watch this space!!
This flower on the card is done using the cricut and cream shrink plastic shiny side down, You do need a new blade in your cricut or it wont cut, and a newish mat for best results.I cant seem to find the stamp used so I cant tell you what it is, but one of my new year resolutions is to stamp all new stamps in a book and title them so I know what I've got (We'll see!!)
Have a nice day love Chris xx

Happy New Year.

Hello 2010... Cant believe its a new year, a new decade even,a fresh start is always welcome. Hope you all enjoyed your new year celebrations,we did something we haven't done in 12 years we went down to our local village pub and bought the new year in with lots of people who we did know, and lots we didn't, everyone was so friendly and chatty isn't it a shame we don't communicate with those around us the rest of the year as we did on Thursday evening, the world would be a much happier place,(that's what I like about crafters there friendly all year round.)

well today we are going to take the tree down and tidy up put pressies away and try and hang on to the last few hours before my little mate has to go back to school.

Anyway here's a little diary that I covered it was free in a magazine the stamp is penny Black and I cant remember what the papers are.

Take care have a Happy Sunday love Chris xx
