Just Magnolia card challenge

This is a stamp I haven't used in ages. But I loved doing this challenge card while it was raining loads and loads.
It is for Just magnolia blog. I felt all red and white that day. And I found my lush east of India ribbon in my yet to be unpacked box, could not believe my luck and how it goes so well with Tilda.
Lots going on this week in my world of blog so make sure you come back to see soon.

It's raining, it's pouring........

Yuk, yuk and more yuk.
The weather could not be more yukkiee if it tried today. Just not in the mood for crafting so just sitting about feeling sorry for myself and listening to the yukkiee rain.
Here are those other cards I did with Ali. The top card has a spotty dotty background done in distress inks using the Darkroom door spotty background stamp. Just so so lush. They are fab. The stamps, stamp so well they make you want to use them so much more, again you can get them from Ali-craft.
Stu is back now so I am going to make him work hard and draw lots so we can all have some craft fun!!!

OMG Ali made some fab cards

Hi all
Ali made some great cards today with the new Darkroom door stamps that landed on the doorstep this morning. If anyone knows Ali they will know why I am so shocked. She is usually so busy that she doesn't make too many cards. They are all fab and the stamps are so lush and so so easy to use.
They are great to stamp with too. If you fancy any of these stamps you can get them from Ali-Craft. Some of the stamps come in a great tin that would look fab with alcohol inks. The background stamps are the best things going in a fab gingham and spotty dotty!!!
I did not get away with not making any so I will post these tomorrow.

Been a busy crafter

Hi all
I have been a busy crafter today. I have managed to do two blog challenge cards as you can see. One is for Penny Black. It had to be green, pink and yellow. Had fun with this one as I never use yellow so that was hard to find yellow in the pile of papers.
The other one which is my favourite. The new Gorguss girl stamp. It is for Totally Gorguss Blog. It had to have flowers on the card. Loved this one I love flowers and bling.
I also worked with stu's new drawings today and made some fab cards he will be pleased. I will be posting the new designs soon so keep watching this space. Just keeping you all hanging on!!

Penny black card challange

Hi all

here is a card I have been working on today. It is a challenge card for Penny black blog. It had to include 'pins and pearls'. It also had to have a Penny black image. I enjoyed this one like I do all the challenges. It gives me more of a focus and takes me out of my box.
Ali has been at a London show for a few days and has booked two more shows!!! Would love to know when she is going to fit them in busy busy pair they are.
Stu has drawn another stamp idea, will have to send him to work more often he is doing at great job. They will be fab can't wait to share them with you all, just a little longer now :)

I hate decorating

Hi all,
been up to my armpits in wallpaper stripping, walls falling down waiting on work men that just don't turn up and horrid paint that gets everywhere. And yesterday I did the most stupid of things. I was lining papering the hall and thinking far too much about making some cards whilst using my finger knife to cut the ends off the wallpaper. Stuck my foot (the whole thing, slipper and all) in the wallpaper paste aaaahhhhhhh. So yep I am back to the crafting and going to stick at it.
Ali and Iain are away doing a show and it has been very quiet around here. I have had a kick up the bum and Stu has started to design the new stamp range so I am hopeing to turn them around fast so we can all have some new fab stamps. They are lush. VERY VERY sexy. I will leave you all hanging at that and I will add a few cards I have done recently a little later on. Keep a watch out.
Love and Bugs Andreaxx
