Crafty Car Boot Sunday 21st May

I am having a Rubber Stamp car boot on Sunday 21st May.  There are hundreds of Rubber Stamps to purchase in many many themes.  Stamps will be priced to go at just a few pounds being the dearest of them.    There are also some dies at greatly reduced prices.

Why the sale you ask?  I am not giving up stamping, oh no, its my blood!  But I do have hundreds and hundreds of stamps that I have collected in over 25 years. That is a heck of a lot of stamps that have not seen the light of day for many moons.  I want to share the love for Rubber Stamping by giving the buyers some awesome bargains and then use the pennies for garden improvements, more craft stash and Needle Felting stash too!

Why are car boot?  Sadly I do not have the time to list all this stuff on Ebay.  It take mega time to make very little money what with paypal & Ebay fees.  Also lost in post items means I lose out twice, I lose my items and I have to refund the money :(   By having a car boot people can come along, choose a stamp, pay and go away with some mega bargains.  I can also have by appointment people come along to look at them here in Redhill, Surrey.

Car Boot is at Rusper near Horsham.  I decided that even though this is quite far away from me it makes it more central to Crawley, Horsham and other places. Just over half hour drive from where I live.  Also it is not a crazy early boot sale, they let the sellers set up without people diving in their boots!!

The details of the sale are HERE   YOU MUST CHECK on the morning that the sale is on that it is actually going ahead.  It is in an open field so it is weather dependent.

I have flowers, animals, words, you name it!   I will probably be doing a few of these as I cant see my little car taking all that I have to sell so I will post further dates.

Hope to see you there!

Paper Pros May Challenge

Hello!! Its been a while again, but I am here with our Paper Pro's Challenge and this month I thought I would be really clever and make the theme "Few of our favourite things" and I thought it would be easy, but when you like so many things it makes choosing tricky!

So here is my card.


And here is a list of my Favourite things.

First up ACCORDION Dies from Karen Burniston.  Amazing dies as accordions but I also love to cut the centres out and these make amazing frames. And on this particular one it has the stitched design around the edges which I love, so I drew through it with a black pen.

Penny Black stamps, namely Margaret Sherry's Designs - these were my first love when I started stamping, probably over 25 years ago!!

Banners I love banners and bunting dies and stamps and I have used here the Lawn Fawn ones.

Lastly on this card I used the Nuvo Aqua Flow brushes from Tonic and I LOVE these.  The colour is so intense but you can use a regular waterbrush and some nice watercolour card to colour in.  These are my new best friends.

The rest of the ladies on the Paper Pros group have been busy making cards.  Remember this is a no stress challenge we do as friends so not everyone will take part every month :)  But it was so much fun not to miss.

Paper Pros April Challenge

A card!!   Its been a long time, I have been cardmaking but it has been for work rather than fun.  I am here with a challenge card for the Paper Pro's team, who are the same wonderful inspiring ladies that made up the Karen Burniston Designer Challenge Team.  We had such fun on this team and we could not bare to part ways so we chose to do a "just for fun" challenge, its monthly, but there is no pressure if we cant make the date, life happens!

So this theme was FLOWERS, BUTTERFLIES AND/OR SPRING BLOOMS on your project?

And I chose Butterflies, with a smattering of flowers too.


Here in the inside you can see the I have decorated the Pivot Butterflies
with yellow card, hard to tell but this has been embossed and I have 
applied some Tonic Studios Nuvo Mousse in a pale yellow.

The bunting stamp was inked the Cracked Pistachio Oxide Ink.


The front is a echo of the inside, the same beautiful  Butterfly, some punched flowers, buttons, silver tape and Nuvo Crystal Drops in Apple Green and Caribbean Ocean.

This card could be used for so many occasions and so many different colour ways, but inspired by the yellow of Spring for the colours.

Needle Felted Fox

Hello and I do hope you don't mind my "non cardmaking" posts.  I guess I will find out how many unsubscribe for that answer!!   

As you know for Christmas I treated myself to a little needle felting kit and I have fallen totally and utterly for it.  Since Christmas I have been selling lots of older stamps and dies and getting money for my felting stash and I am a wee bit addicted to "fluff".   Part of my Ebay fund was spent on a couple of kits, one of which was the Lincolnshire Fenn Crafts Fox Kit.



I finally got around to making it and I am pleased how it come out.  Still lots to learn and I would love to find a class to go to but failing that there are people out there like Sandy from Lincolnshire Fenn Crafts who take the hard work out of it and make these lovely kits.  Everything you need to make one complete animal, very detailed instructions jam packed with photos, a sponge, needles, beads and of course wool... literally Everything you need to complete the project.

Caiden decided that this fox was called Freddy :)


A funny story about where Freddy is sitting for the above photo.  This morning in the pot behind him was a lump of leather off an older armchair we have broken
up to take the dump.  Our "real" Foxes decided to bury this piece of 
leather along side my spring flowers!  
Needless to say the leather has been rehomed in a rubbish bag.


What a beautiful day to be a fox!

I can not wait to get started on my Hare and Cat kits from 

If you are remotely tempted to try needle felting I would have a 
look at their designs :)  and tell them Caz sent ya for some Wooly fun!

Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C375

According to the Days of the Year web site, Thursday 2nd March was World Book Day. For our challenge this week take your inspiration for making your card from a book … adults or children’s book whatever you prefer.

I made this card for today's Create & Take at work and I thought it fitted the book
"The Dressmaker" by Rosalie Ham.


I admit I have not read this book, I think I would enjoy it but I do fancy the film
I have no clue why?!


I have used the GORGEOUS Penny Black stamp "Sew Much Fun"


You can see all the cards that the other Crazy4challenges team have made

Crazy 4 Challenge C4C373

Hello
Its challenge time again over at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and this week it is a sketch.


Here is the sketch and here is my take on the sketch.


I decided that I wanted to play with Poppy the Owl
from Karen Burniston HERE
I also used a few things that were lying close to hand such as the Sizzix tree that
I used as branch, and the Sizzix Cloud at the bottom of the page.

A simple card, but sometimes simple is good eh?

You can see all the other designs on their blogs

Until next time!

Paper Pros Challenge 001

Welcome to a NEW challenge for me. 

 This is the Paper Pros Challenge and it is Challenge Number 001! 
 What or who are Paper Pros?... well we are a group of Crafting Friends, brought together by our love for the Karen Burniston Products and we formed the Karen Burniston Designer Challenge Team.  Now firm friends and firm crafters we all decided with the Karen Burniston Design Team without our challenges we wanted to keep ourselves busy with Monthly challenges.  Just for fun, anything goes product wise and just to be part of a team, together creating and hopefully inspiring you all still!  Thrilled that our "Team Leader" Karen Burniston wanted to play with us too!! And Karen is joining in.

Summer was the lady to kick our challenge into the start line and her challenge is :

How about shaking it up? --- a challenge all about shaking... Whether a 

shaker card or action wobbler... Just a whole lotta shaking going on


Now me being last minute dot.com I had to make some Valentine gifts.
A little choccy box for 4 special people.

I used the Tonic Studios Gesture Box this cute
little box is big enough to hold a small chocolate.  Such as a
ferrero rocher But for Valentines I popped some chocolate hearts.
The image was stamped with a Taylored Expressions Grumplings set
and I mounted the circle onto a concertina of card to create a "Wobble" platform.

You can see the rest of the teams creations on their blogs :


I am not sure if all are playing along every week, we are doing 
it as a kind of relaxed thing.  No stress just fun!!

I hope you enjoy seeing us back together.

Second week in February and although I did my card in time I totally forgot to post it on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog last night!  opps!

Tammy is hosting February and she said :

Hello everyone, and welcome to the second challenge for February!  Valentine's Day is approaching, and many take the opportunity to go out for a fancy dinner to celebrate!  So for this week's challenge, incorporate a food/dining/dishes-theme into your design, and also use the color red!

And here is my card :)


I used a Penny Black Owl for my main image.
This was mounted onto the Oval Pull Card from Karen Burniston 
I used it minus the optional arm
The Cupcakes are very old Penny Black stamps.

That's my card for today!

Wooly Madness

I have been utterly enjoying my trip into Needle felting and I thought I would share a couple of more projects with you.


First up is Little Peggy my sleepy Tea Cup Mouse.
Such a cute little critter and I got the tutorial for it HERE



Next up is my sheep and I have struggled to think of a name
for her, it is a her and she is wearing a heart on her chest
to say "I love ewe".  I told Darren I would give her to him for Valentines, to which he said "What am I going to do with a felted sheep?"  I told him "Say thanks and then give it back!"  LOL


Lastly here is Barnabus Bear, this bear looks nothing like he was supposed to
but he turned out cute.

I do hope you have enjoyed looking at my Wooly Madness!
Until next time, I am off to stab some wool xx

(I purchase all my lovely core wool and natural wools and blends
from Fleece 4 Ewe - this is on Facebook  Tell her Caz sent ya!)
