And what a gorgeous day it is out there after all that rain and wind yesterday its nice to see a bit of sunshine.
Well for this week's challenge I could not resist using my favourite colours of purple and lilac and with this I have used white card stock to make the square card, Daydream patterned paper x 3, Bazzill Basics Deep Purplem, Bazzill Basics Light Purple, Ribbon, Gemstones, Flowers, Cuttlebug, Spellbinders Scalloped Circles Diecut, Spectrum Noir pens numbers 132, 133, 142, 196, 104, 100, 96, 0, 146, 84, 83, 175, 3, 183, GB11, 42, 43, 51, 109 and of course a lovely new rubber stamped imaged from Crafts and Me called Have Some Champagne.
When I started this I had decided that the circles part would be the Scalloped Circles diecuts, had not intentionally used patterned papers with circle images on it just noticed it after putting the finishing touches to the card, so am even more pleased.
Until next time, do take care and happy crafting, lol

Well as the current Crafts and Me Challenge is untraditional Christmas colours, I have chosen browns, also an image thats no truly a Christmas image but thought as it was a fairy and many of use have a fairy on our Christmas trees it would be ideal.
I have used white card stock to make the square card, Paper Co Studio Autumn Harvest Leafy Stripe Double sided patterned paper but only one side as the other was gold and was not keen on that, Bazzill Basics Pinecone card stock, Coredinations Beach card stock, Lace, Flowers, Silver Glitter, Gem stones, Sentiments, Cuttlebug, Spellbinders Floral Diecut, Foam Pads to make it 3D, Spectrum Noir pens numbers 132, 133, 142, 196, 104, 100, 96, 0, 3, 144, EB3, EB4, EB6, 48, 175, 163 and of course one of the lovely new rubber stamped images from Crafts and Me called Fairy In My Window.
Hope you like this one, not come out too bad especially as I have kept in quite dark but thought the silver glitter might give it that extra feel of Christmas, until next time do take care and happy crafting, lol

Been one of those weeks where everything seems to go wrong, my phone line went dead, to get it back I had to keep phoning it using my mobile every so often but it was so crackly it was not really worth it and of course it made me internet drop out, grrrrrr. Have finally got it back today but things are very, very slow for some reason. I hate it without my internet, drives me nuts.
Moaning over with, managed it get on the internet yesterday long enough to find out what the current challenge is for Crafts and Me and decided to play with it yesterday, a good way to take my mind of the frustation.
While I was making this card a thought went through my mind about the glitter and it kept on poking up about Jack Frost at this time of year, so thought I would use that with this card by sprinkling glitter all over the stamped image to give it that look and feel. I have used white card stock to make the square card, Summer Breeze patterned papers x 4, Bazzill Basics Great Lakes card stock, Bazzill Basics Lillywhite card stock, Spectrum Noir pens numbers 132, 133, 142, 196, 104, 100, 96, 0, 43, 109, 48, 175, 163, 35, 33, 24, Pearls, Sentiments, Flowers, Pearl Hat Bobbin Pins, Silver Glitter and of course the lovely rubber stamped image called Foxglove.
Well thats it for me now and lets hope my phone/internet stops messing around now, until next time do take care and happy crafting, lol
