Muse DT

My turn to be the Muse for  this weeks Challenge and I have made a one layer card - and after the weeks of decorating and shifting rooms about I was in the mood for either a large wine or a bit of crafty therapy I opted for the crafty therapy...... first! :)

I used all clearly besotted products coloured with flexmarkers, su ink and a xcut punch for the flowers, simple but hopefully it is enough to inspire you !

  Maybe it will be the sheep ,puny sentiment ,flowers ,colours??? that get the crafty juices flowing ....but one thing I do know, I cant wait to see what you create in the gallery!

As the theme over at Cupcake Inspirations is thank you this week too will be add it to their blog as well

...and many thanks for taking a peek over at mine

Cupcake Inspirations 385

I missed last weeks challenge with having to move my craft room and even get in it was a challenge in itself ,as everything was put in there while we were decorating!!. But back to normal now so  I was straight on over to the Cupcake Inspiration challenge and I found I was inspired by the stripes in the cupcake cases and the neutral colours and of course the thanks !

Many thanks for popping over for a peek!

MCV/The 25 Days of Christmas Tags

I am for the first time taking part in Tracey McNeelys 25 days of Christmas tags which is already at day 16!  and i also made a tag for the Muse challenge at the same time which this week says   to use vellum on your tag.

I found inspiration from Lindsays tag with a few modifications of my own...I used a paper smooches tag out of white card and vellum .I then went with Lindsays colours of blue and white.Making one snowflake the main focus and added some liquid pearls (I know, I know I do this all the time but what can I say I like the effect!)to mimic the ones on Lindsays tag and finally a banner with a sentiment.... and to finish it off I curled my ribbon just as Linday has!

Thanks for taking a peek !

Cupcake inspirations 383

Firstly I would like to apologise for the poor quality of photo its now the time of dark nights and dark mornings here in Scotland so that means really poor light for taking photos...and this is even being enhanced with picasa!
I am really enjoying taking part in the Cupcake Inspiration challenges but this weeks nearly stumped me until I remembered this old stamp by Inkylicious

I inked it and lightly pressed it to the paper in a dark brown like the cupcake tree and then used the other colours to make the light in the window and the green trees.
I added some liquid pearls to make the falling snow, on the lightly chalked the background.
The sentiment is the one that came with the image .
 Thanks you for taking the time to look

MCV 68

Over at Muse:Christmas Visions Jeanne has given us not only a pretty in pink Christmas card but a prize to be won too !wahoo

I chose to take my inspiration from Jeannes bauble with stripes peeking through and Jeannes stripey background (although I used white  horizontal stripes ...well it is all about inspiration isn't it ?? ;0 )
I also took inspiration from her snowflakes and gems centres.To finish I used the Merry Christmas as my sentiment but stamped rather than die cut and finally I added the string to my bauble to finish.

Thanks for popping in  by for a visit!

It has been a looong time since I joined in over at CASology and I am wondering why now there is so much inspiration over there!

This week as you can see the cue word is CURE and  after my other feel better card I felt the urge to do another.We know there is no cure for the common cold but one thing you definitely need is a box of tissues!:)

I paper pieced the paper smooches images and cut them out before adhering to foam tape and then matted it and added the paper smooches sentiment to finish it off.

Many thanks for popping in to visit !

Cupcake Inspiration 381

Thought I'd show you a bit more of the sparkle though its much more sparkly in RL!


When I  saw this weeks photo inspirations over at Cupcake Inspirations I was delighted...... one of my best friends has been in a rally car accident and though they are both a bit battered and bruised they are both fine... Thankfully!,( as they were travelling at over 100 mph!! )

So my eyes were drawn to the plasters and the colours and how there was three rows so I took my inspiration from that, and as I will be sending it to my friend who does love a bit of sparkle :) I added a wink of stella and a few gems.
I used a Paper smooches image and sentiment.

Thank you for popping in to see me today!
