Boo!!!

Over on the Inchy by Inch challenge blog, the theme is all things Halloween.... and here is my offering:



I love it, even if I do say so myself! It's not quite turned out how I expected/hoped/dreamed, but it's pretty darned close.

Ironically enough, I hadn't intended to make it to include as part of the latest team challenge on Aunty's Forum , but I didn't have any spiders, and wound up recycling an over-used, tiny cotton wool ball from one of my i-kan-dee chalk sets. I coloured it in with black felt tip pen, added some wire legs, et voila! One spider..... and one Halloween Inchy!

PS. The stamp is from All Night Media...

Deadline extension for the Blog Candy

Aside from the fact that I've had a request for this, I was contemplating extending the deadline. It's such a fabby prize, and I was later getting this on the blog than I had intended. I'd like as many folks as poss to enter... so the new deadline will be Saturday 25th October 2008!!!!

BLOG CANDY

OK

As promised....


The Blog Candy for the challenge.

For your delight, and delectation.....

Not one, not two but eleven.... YES ELEVEN..... of the Colorbox Cats Eye Chalk Ink pads.

They're duplicates that I've already got - and these are still sealed!

So, the challenge is that I'd like to see YOU make a card like the one in the other post. A maximum of two stamps, one colour of ink, one colour of embossing powder (can be the same or a tonal one). No pre-printed background papers!

As per usual, put your cards on your blog, and link back to mine. I'll then pick a winner out at random. Probably using Random.org as that seems to be flavour of the month! If you don't have a blog, email your work to me and I'll upload it to my blog.

And the deadline is....... ooh, let's have a long one! Midnight on Saturday the 18th October!

Can't wait to see what you come up with!

So join in!!!! What are you waiting for!!???



Strawsilk Glasswork

Right-oh. People have been demanding to see what I've been up to.

And here it is....

I'll edit this post with more details when I have a little more time!

Cards time again... and the chance to win some Blog Candy!!!!

Lately, I've had some odd flashes of inspiration. Funnily enough, these have come at moments when I've had to create a card in a hurry. Like the two following... I think I'm safe blogging them, because the first one should have been received by now, and the second one, well, the recipient is unlikely to browse my blog (not impossible, but unlikely!).

This first one definitely has an air of the black and white movies. Prompted by the "Oh Gawd, got to make a card now!" type sentiment, I dug in my box of tricks and came up with the pink edged card pre-stamped with the woman's face. 15 minutes later, I'd teamed this up with the black card, the monochrome background paper, and some silver peel-offs. Add a simple sentiment, et voila!



The second card was again born from speed, partly cos I knew my beloved would be fed up with watching TV on his own, and I need to post this card tomorrow. So what can you do with two stamps, one colour of ink and one colour of embossing powder, a small piece of rainbow coloured vellum, and a plain, purple pearlescent card?

This.....




Hope you like them!


In fact, I've had an idea.

Using the same criteria, I'd like to see YOU make a card. A maximum of two stamps, one colour of ink, one colour of embossing powder (can be the same or a tonal one). No pre-printed background papers!

And I'm even going to offer up some blog candy. Come back tomorrow, and see what's on offer.....

Then go and make your cards, stick them on your blog, and link back to mine. I'll then pick a winner out at random.

And the deadline is....... ooh, let's have a long one! Midnight on Saturday the 18th October!

Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Oooohhhhh - Changes!!!!

Well, whaddya fink?


I found this AWESOME site that allows you to pick up templates and attach them to your blog to add a bit more bling to it. It's bugged me for AGES that I had these blank panels either side of my blog, and now they're gone.

This template is a little bit full on for my liking, but was preferable to any others I saw on their website (see little tag, top left, for details). Once I can get my head round their "how to" template, I will have a stab at making my own on PSP. And if that fails, I shall have to sweet-talk an acquaintance of mine, the fabulous Inchy at Siggi Shop, to extend her range and maybe make something that matches my header. My fabulous header. Which she made.

Star

Over on the Inchy by Inch blog, the latest challenge is "Stars".

I went away, did mine, came back..... and realised that I'd done something almost identical. I'm just going to have to go away and do another one, aren't I?

Anyway, here's the one I've done for now... LOL

Arty Girlz

I made a last minute card for the challenge on Aunty's, and then after having a wee tiny surf around blogland, suddenly realised I'd done something that would count for the Arty Girlz Red Challenge! Yay!!!

So here it is....



The stamps are all from The Netherlands (thanks Anette!), apart from the alphabet which is Studio G. I did the background with perfect pearls, and the stamping was done with blue ink that came with the set, embossed with clear powder!

Oh, and the answer to the question.... "how do you build a home?"

Inside it says.... "With Love"
