Ahoy There !


Well shiver me timbers, I've made a card and its still daylight !!!

Did you know that Simon Says Stamp has a group over at Papercraft Planet ? Well you do now !! Here is the link to the group page http://www.papercraftplanet.com/group/simonsaysstamp so you can keep up with the latest gossip and also take part in some challenges.

There is a challenge running over there until 14th March so you have plenty of time to join us. The challenge is a colour combo of dark brown, vanilla (cream) and teal and it can be anything you like as long as it is in these colours.

There is also a prize ! The winner will win 3 ink pads of their choice ! How fabby is that. I already know I would choose 3 of the new distress ink pads if I won but I am sure it would take me a fortnight to choose which 3 out of the 12 new ones !!

Here is my entry to the challenge :



The DP's are My Mind's Eye "Little Boy Blue" - oh yes, soooo yummy !! So yummy in fact I couldn't have a boy without a girl so I have "Mary, Mary" too !! Keep your eyes peeled for a card soon (if I can bear to cut into them !!).

The fabulous image is a Boefje stamp which Heidi has recently taken delivery of in the Simon Says Stamp Store. These stamps just add to the huge range that SSS already stocks ! You can find the full range of these fantastic, quirky stamps RIGHT HERE ! This little fella is called "Luuk" and he's an absolute darlin' to colour and yes, he's been coloured with ProMarkers !

The ribbon is from my stash.

The ticket is from the range of My Minds Eye "Little Boy Blue" and I bought my papers and tickets from Sam at Craft Island who never lets you down with such fantastic service. Sam puts packs together of paper ranges so you don't have to buy all the sheets individually. She also has packs of matching Bazzill too !

I can also enter this card for these challenges :

Cute Card Thursday - Ribbon-Tastic

Stamp Something - Receipe - Designer paper, buttons, ribbon

Quixotic Challenges - One for the Boys

Fussy and Fancy - Movies (Pirates of the Carribean maybe or even Peter Pan (I think he looks like one of the Lost Boys !)).

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you may leave. It was lovely to see you !

Have a great weekend and don't forget to enter my blog candy. All you have to do is click on the photo in my side bar and it will take you directly to Mr Linky where you can add your name !

Have fun !!

Simon Says Challenge



It's early........it's Wednesday morning.......it's Simon Says Challenge time !!!!

Yes, its that time of the week again when we have another fantastic challenge for you to play along with. Before I tell you more though, thank you so much to all those who entered our Happy Hello challenge and blog hop. I have announced the winner of the Cuttlebug folder (please see post below) and the winner of the grand prize will be announced on the Simon Says Stamp blog later !

This week's challenge is VINTAGE WITH FLOWERS and the DT are this week showcasing Prima flowers and boy, what a selection of Prima's Simon Says Stamp has in store ! It's like a magical garden !

We also have a special Designer in the Spotlight joining us this week. Anna "Queen of Prima" ! and former Simon Says Challenge Design Team Member is joining us !!



The DP's are by Melissa Frances. I have distressed the edges with a distressing tool and antique linen distress ink.

The frame has been made from a cereal box (!) which I cut with my nesties and then painted with picket fence crackle paint, rubbed with antique linen distress ink and then I added a coat of glossy accents, not too thick so I had a subtle shine. I must say, the cereal box was perfect !

I stamped the background of the image with a crackle stamp in antique linen distress ink and then cut out and placed beautiful, sparkly Tilda in the frame. She has been coloured with ProMarkers and I added some stickles to her wings.

The flowers are all Prima and you can find the ones I used here I added some pearl glimmer mist to them and added some pearl brads, raffia and punched leaves from a Woodware punch and Martha Stewart punch.

All the pearls are by Kaiser

The butterflies have been punched from vellum with a MS punch, pearls and stickles added.

The ticket is a Tim Holtz adage ticket which I distressed.

The lace is from my stash.

There is a fantastic prize of a $25, P&P free shopping spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store which Heidi is very generously giving to the winner.

Yet again, my fellow DT'ers have done an a.m.a.z.i.n.g job with their creations this week, you must hop over and visit them and prepared to be inspired !

THIS BLOG CANDY IS NOW CLOSED

Here are some cards I have made with this fantastic froggy stamp set !! If you click on the images they should become larger so you can see them in more detail !




Well, here we are again with another fantastic BasicGrey Blog Candy courtesty of Simon Says Stamp ! Just look at these amazing goodies you could win !

So, what do you have to do to win my candy ?

Some of you will be used to it by now but for those first timers, here goes :

Well, there are no strict rules and the comments I make below are not compulsory to enter this draw but it would be nice if :

You could give your support to Simon Says Stamp, BasicGrey Challenges and myself by becoming a follower if you are not already. Add my blog candy to your sidebar and please feel free to "take away" my blinkie !

Join in with us at BasicGrey Challenges and also Simon Says Stamp's challenge blog, Simon Says Challenge ! You can combine challenges with both of these challenge blogs which is great news !

This blog candy will be open to everyone Worldwide (including all DT members of both challenge blogs) until Saturday 6th March when I shall draw a winner with a random number generator and post a new fabby blog candy for you to enter.

To make it much quicker for me to choose a winner, I am going to start using Mr Linky but there is a catch !!! Every fortnight I shall ask you a question and I would like you to answer that question after your name. It will be a one word answer so not difficult.

This fortnight's question is : What is (or was) your worst crafting purchase ?

I think mine has to be the mountains of peel-offs I have stored away ! Why are these always a "crafting essential" when you start and everyone recommends you get a load ?!!!!! hehehehe

For example, you would leave your answer as Jo Nevill (Peel-offs)

Anyone not leaving the answer to my question will have their name deleted to stop spammers and also people only entering for the sake of it (if you know what I mean and I don't wish to be rude in anyway).

I would like to give a huge thank you to both Heidi and Steph of Simon Says Stamp for giving me this fantastic candy again for you to win.

Good luck !

Happy Christmas ?

I think that should really mean "Happy Valentine's Day" !

Are you having and good day and being spoilt rotten ? I was given the most beautiful card by my DH this morning and I told him that he ought to take up crafting with me 'cause it must have cost him a fortune. He then proceeded to remind me that the card I gave him (which was lovingly handmade) had probably cost him in excess of £40 so perhaps buying one was the quicker and cheaper option ! There's no romance left, is there ?!!!!

Anyway, back to Christmas..... my fabby good friend Lols suggested perhaps I join in the ABC Christmas Challenge this week as the theme is "Decoration". Lols sent me a gorgeous Christmas card with a "must have" stamp on it and I managed to get my gluey little fingers on one from e-bay and so when it arrived, I made a card straight away but put it away for next year ! Lols pursuaded me to get it out for this challenge !!!




I am sorry, I have no idea who makes the red paper, it was in my scraps tray. The silvery coloured paper is BasicGrey.

The stamp is by Magenta and I believe is called "Holly Ornament". I heat embossed this with sparkly black embossing powder and then added some Stickles for extra sparklies.

The ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment you can hardly see is by Hero Arts !

Enjoy the rest of your romantic day and thank you so much for your visit and for any comments you may leave.

I ♥ ProMarkers


This afternoon I was able to have a play ! I ♥ ProMarkers has now gone weekly and their first challenge started on Wednesday. Its a great sketch and the colour combo is one of my faves, pink and brown. I also have some new stamps to play with so what more could a girl ask for ?



Here is the wild "Drucilla" which is of course a Kraftin Kimmie stamp and she has of course been coloured with ProMarkers.

The DP's are BoBunny "Love Bandit".

The tag is handmade with ribbon from my stash and sentiment by Melissa Frances.

The flowers are a mixture of Hero Arts and roses from my stash with some cinnamon Stickles added for some sparkle.

I just need to find the right person to give this to now who won't be easily offended !!!

I've been a lucky girl this week too and was given this award by my lovely blogging buddy Georgia - thank's darlin !!




Thank you so much for your visit and for any comments you may leave.

To be in with a chance of winning the other prizes on offer, you need to take part in this fortnight's challenge over at the Colour Create Challenge Blog.


Now this fortnight's challenge ! The colour combo is red white/off white, chocolate and pink and here is the photo for your inspiration







The option extras are silver and hearts.







All the card I used is from Elzybells. Elizbeth has just started selling a co-ordinates range which includes card, ink and buttons and they are all the most delicious colours. I have used Sticky Toffee, Strawberry Fool and Vanilla Cupcake.

The large heart stamp on the card is a Magenta stamp I bought from e-bay which has been stamped in Strawberry Fool ink. The button is a Sticky Toffee button and I have added some paper string and beads from my stash. The smaller hearts (which are Hero Arts pattered hearts) have been stamped in Sticky Toffee and Strawberry Fool ink.

The ribbon is from my local market.

The chocolate pearls are from my stash.

The gift box has been made from a template from Splitcoasters and is a "2-5-7-10 Box"
I did actually make mine a little larger to fit more choccies in !!

I used an MS heart punch for the top edge and Strawberry Fool panel.

The heart is from a set called "Tags - Valentine II" sold at Elzybells. These stamps have been designed to fit the heart nesties and are fantastic - I can highly recommend them ! Unfortunately, my purse can't !!!

The ribbon is from my local market.

Phew ! I think that is everything - are you still here ???? !!!

The DT's cards are amazing this week and if you look closely, we have a very special guest joining us too ! None other than the amazing TARA who started off this fantastic challenge blog for us all. So lovely to have you back kiddo !!!

We look forward to seeing you joining us in our Birthday celebrations.

Our Creative Corner Challenge


Don't die of shock ! Yes ! Two posts in one day !!!

I saw a few days ago that Our Creative Corner had set up a sketch blog and when I saw the lovely simple sketch they had for their first challenge, I was keen to join in. I'm not getting a lot of time for crafting other than DT work so I was after something "simple" and this fitted the bill just perfectly.




The DP's are My Mind's Eye "Pretty Please" and I have used Elzybells "Strawberry Fool" card for matting and layering.

The image is a Kraftin Kimmie stamp called "Charlotte" and she has been coloured with ProMarkers.

The ribbon is from my stash.

The little heart pearls are from Bunny Zoe Crafts.

The sentiment is by Hero Arts "Share Laughter" which I received from Simon Says Stamp. I have just realised that I should have stamped this below the bow - whoops ! I wonder if I will be forgiven ?

Right, must dash. DH is waiting to back up my computer which started to throw a wobbler last night so we are trying to catch it before it decides to do it again !

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you leave.

Don't forget to enter my BasicGrey Blog Candy ! Can you enter if you click HERE !


Simon Says Challenge - All You Need is Love !


Sorry I've been so elusive again - just a bad time to get down and crafty !!

The challenge this week is LOVE!!! That's a pretty easy one as Valentine's Day is RIGHT around the corner, but it can be for an Anniversary, a wedding , or just something for your sweetie!

You can win a $25 shopping spree at SIMON SAYS STAMP (+ free shipping!!!) PLUS ......

You could also win these scrummy goodies direct from the CHA show ! All of these goodies are BRAND NEW to the crafting scene so make sure you are the first to get your gluey fingers on them !!!



This week our Guest Designer is SAMANTHA. If you haven't popped by her blog, you really should! Samantha is getting married soon and made her own wedding invitations. You should go and see them, they are gorgeous.

The rest of the DT's cards are stunning too !




The DP's are the yummy BoBunny "Love Bandit" papers - aren't they gorgeous ? The base card is BoBunny double dot.

The image is by CC Designs and is Liesel with her wheelbarrow. Simon Says Stamp now has these cuties in stock and ready to buy !

She has been coloured with ProMarkers and I filled her wheelbarrow with punched hearts, inked the edges and added some Stickles for some sparkle. I also gave her wings the Stickles treatment.

The heart I cut myself from some chipboard and painted it with some Picket Fence crackle paint, inked the edges and sprayed generously with pearl glimmer mist.

The felt flower I cut myself and added and gorgeous pink button.

We look forward to seeing what you make for our challenge this week.

Thank you so much for your visit and for any comments you leave - they always mean so much to me.

BasicGrey Challenges


Ahhh Saturday - the weekend is here ! I hope you all had a good week and managed, unlike me, to get lots of crafting done ! It's been a busy ole week here in the Nevill household what with play rehearsals, finding costumes, a dance festival which Ski took part in, in Bath on Thursday night (which was fantastic) and just life in general.

Here we are again for BasicGrey Challenges and this week, we have a fantastic sketch for you designed by our very talented Martine. Not only is she a PC genius but a genius at sketches too and don't even let me start telling you about how kind and generous she is, I'll be here all weekend !!!! Anyone who knows Martine will know exactly what I am talking about !



Here is my take on the sketch :





The DP's are BasicGrey "Sugar Rush". These papers are just so yummy !


The image is a Ketto Fairy by Stamping Bella and this one is called "Missmatch Ketto". Isn't she just gorgeous. This image was actually given to me by my fellow BG teamie and gorgeous friend Kim Costello. She has of course been coloured with ProMarkers.


The sentiment in the corner is a Melissa Frances transfer.


The bling heart was made using the Bazzill Basics template.


The ribbon and tule are from my stash and Martine gave me the gorgeous brad.


The buttons are all BasicGrey "Wassail".


There is an amazing prize on offer again from Simon Says Stamp, lots of yummy goodies for you to get your hands on so we hope you can join us in our sketch challenge this week. There is loads of inspiration for you on the BasicGrey Challenges Blog by my fellow teamies and we all have completely different takes on each challenge we do.


Enjoy the weekend and thank you for your visit and for any comments you may leave.


I will shortly be drawing the winner of my candy and will be revealling another one.
