I'm still loving my D&D stamps even though I've had very little chance to use them just yet. This week's D&D challenge #5 is a sketch, so I thought I'd have a little play yesterday evening inbetween watching the TV.
I was also keen to enter a card for this week's Charisma Cardz Challenge #14 as the theme is purple and green ... and as luck would have it I picked out a piece of paper that I loved the other day that is exactly those colours !
Recipe: Main image: D&D stamp "Candyfloss" coloured with watercolour pencils and Sakura sparkle pens. Sentiment: Penny Black transparent set "Salutations". Paper: Bo Bunny (I think!) from Craft in Time. Supplies: Green pearlised cardstock punched with MS doily punch; lilac pearlised carstock embossed wtih Cuttlebug "Floral Fantasy" folder; raffia lace crom Hobbycraft; flowers from Prima, WH Smith, green FloraDoodles and paper roses from Crafts4u2do; large pearl gems from winning Camilla's candy :-)
Now I have really been a naughty blogger, cos I have received three award over recent weeks, but I haven't put them on my blog - I really do appreciate them but time seems to have flown by so fast ...the main probelm has been finding time to think about and pick who to pass them onto :-)
Anyhow .. I have decided to procrastinate no longer, so this is my mega catch-up session !! ......
First of all, I received this fab award from my PBSC DT teamie Domi :-) Now I really am naughtily late in posting this ... sorry hun! Not sure how many peeps I am supposed to pass this on to, so as it says "Top 10 Fav's" have decided to pass it on to my top 10 commenters as they are kind enough to visit regularly and make my heart smile :-) So that would be .... Bev, Riet, Tasha, Helen, Sharon, Marcea, Carole, Tracy & Rach (Domi is also a top commenter lol!).
Secondly, I got this lovely one from Sharon - she is one of my best blogging buddies and her kindness means a lot. I thought I would like to pass this one on to a few people I know who have recently started their own blogs, to say fab work! and keep it up!! So that would be Sue, Carol and Squirrel.
Last but by no means least, I have received the fab Lumas Thorn Award from the elves at Lumas Thorn and from the lovely Bev. Now there are a lot of blogs I enjoy visiting and quite a few that really do inspire me loads ... but of all the blogs I visit Bev's is right up there ... and judging by the number of followers she has clearly there are a LOT of people who would agree with that lol! So I'm really touched by this, and would like to pass it on to 5 peeps who inspire me the most - not only with their fab cards but also by their kindness and fun. Now this is a hard one .. but I'd like to pick Helen, Sharon, Tracie, Jacqui and Debbie .... sorry I couldn't pick more !!
My name is Pauline, and I have been cardmaking since 2006. I started my cardmaking blog in 2008, to showcase my addiction to stamping and all things pretty - I can spend hours footling around matching up papers, ribbons and embellishments!! I have been on a number of card blog design teams, but am currently taking a step back due to various other commitments. During 2013 I discovered the joy of baking, and for 2014 have started a new baking blog to chart my progress and also include a charity element. I only wish I had more time to devote to these hobbies ... but I have to work full time as a project manager to help pay for my baking ingredients and crafty stash!!
