Here is my desk this morning. What can I show you??
Well the postie came yesterday with my Martha Stewart stamp around the page. Shouldn't have bought it really, but I happened to catch it on screen and thought it looked good. Haven't had time to play yet as yesterday was busy. My Son enrolled at College, having done really well in his GCSE's he could choose the course he really wanted. We also had haircuts here yesterday so the afternoon just disappeared. Hopefully I can play today. You can also see a card I am working on. Mum wanted a card for my Cousin's Son, who is to be 11 years old and who is mad on Scrapheap Challenge etc. I thought this one would be easy, but I have found it really hard to find images that were suitable. I think I am getting there now though...just needs finishing off. Apart from all my storage there is not much more to see really.

Hop on over to Julia's blog to see lots of other workdesks...

Quirky Crafts Challenge - 18 - Flourishes and embossing

Time for me to choose a challenge again over at Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog. This time I have chosen Flourishes and embossing. I want to see at least one flourish and a bit of any kind of embossing on each entry!
He is my Design Team Offering:-
The backing paper was from a free digikit, unfortunately I don't know where that came from now..and the flourish and Love were cut using my Gazelle and the fabulous Make The Cut Software.
The main image is of course a lovely digistamp provided by our sponsors this challenge Robyn's Fetish, this one is called Blossom. The image was coloured using a mixture of promarkers and flexi promarkers (which are fantastic!). I used Blossom and Pale Blossom with marsh green and cocoa. It doesn't show in the picture, but the centres of the flowers are decoupaged and embossed with clear to make them shiny. The white oval mat was also cut from my Gazelle, and I used Penny Duncan's faux nestie effect cuttlebug embossing method to emboss the edge....mark 1 had swirls embossed on the mat too....but I decided that was a step too far!
Come and join the challenge....there is a $10 voucher to be won!

Quirky Crafts Challenge 17 - Red Hat

New challenge time again and this time we have the challenge of Red Hat. You can make anything you like as long as there is a red hat there somewhere. He is my offering
I used the Red Hat digistamp provided by our sponsors Robyn's Fetish. I decided to enlarge the stamp to make a hat shaped card. The red and black flower paper is from a Summertime Designs digikit I downloaded for free ages ago, i traced the flower outlines with a glue pen and added black glitter. The ribbon section of the hat is also black glitter. The image has a flower on the hat already, but I wanted it to be more 3d, so I set about making one of Penny Duncan's Grunge roses from the file on her website. I think it sets the card off a treat.
