Black Label Society

Hi all

Wanted to share with you all a piccy from the Black Label Society gig I went (more like I was dragged to by hubby) in Manchester on Tuesday last week. Don't know how I fit it all in?????? But it was great heavy rock and roll and I loved it so thought I would share that all with you this morning.

I told you all I was being creative yesterday!!!
This is Logan's (my little boy) egg for Banardos. He had to decorate an egg and he has to carry it around all week and tell people what the egg did, he is not aloud to crack it and all the money goes to Banardos. He wanted a spartan, so I had my hands full after all it is an egg!!!! so King Leonidas (wish we had the real dishy one at home!!) got pants, a sword and even a beard!! how cool, and every step I had to run by the little budding designer and alot of things were too rubbish for his spartan. Paige is going to do the same for fun, she has a little girl egg and said she was the designer like Gok!!!! Bag and all.
The eggs smell already so I can see we are going to have an egg-tastic week!!!!!

Graphic 45 papers.....

Hi all

Ali has some more Graphic 45 papers so I have managed to play with some more. I have made this mans card, using the paper pad and a few embellishments. I than added some crackle glaze to make it look aged. I had great fun splodging it all over very messy and great.
Off for some retail therapy now, to get some yummy cushions and candles for my window seat that hubby is going to build when he gets five mins.

Totally Gorjuss sketch challenge

Hi all,

although this card is not as altered as my last few I love it, my fave part is the big bow. I have done this card for the Totally Gorjuss challenge this week. I have been naughty and only managed this one this week. Had my course work comments back and I have had slapped hands in a way I must work harder and I know it so got to sketch, sketch, sketch.
But I have loved sitting and colouring with my promarkers and just love the pinks and greens that fell together. Looking forward to the next challenge.

More fabby dabby steampunk cards

Graphic 45 papers with pearly madness

Folded card using steampunkery paper graphic 45

Hi all,

I thought I would share with you all the cards I did on the same day as the other one I posted. The kids thought they were getting no tea that night??!!! But when you get going you just get stuck in and the creativeness flows and it doesn't stop. I love these papers and all the blingy bits, pearls and flowers and of course glitter. So loads of fun had that day.
Busy ordering lots of new bits and bobs today new projects ahead all top secret and great fun! Keep an eye out.

Fabby dabby graphic 45

Hi all

well Ali had a box delivered yesterday and I just had to have the graphic 45 papers and buttons, all good fun, she is away at a show at the moment and hasn't even looked in the box herself. I did this altered card that just threw itself on the page. I love all the odd bit I have thrown on it. I also used some distress inks and cosmic shimmers and loads of blingy bits. Ohhhhh I just love these papers they are steampunkery style, if you asked Ali the brand you would guarantee to get some naughty words back, she swore twice in the same sentence when she was trying to tell me what was coming. She shouldn't be let loose at all these shows they are making her naughty!!!!!!!
well hope you all like and I will be back off to make some more soon Logan has the rugby on and I thought hubby was bad for it, although I like it loads better than football, all those rugby players in tight shorts just fabby. And we have a great divide here Stu(hubby) is Scottish and I am English so that is always a great game.

Penny Black challenge...

Hi all

well today I had a very nice crafting/chilling out day and I can say it was great.
I did the Saturday penny black challenge card. It was a sketch. I really enjoyed this one as it was defiantly different. I used the new nestabilities mum came home with and I can say I still hate using them, I would rather dad cut them out!!!
Ali and Iain are in Manchester for the show today, so say hello if you have read my blog.
Love and Bugsxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
