Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes!

Good Morning!
Before I get onto today's card I'd just like to make a little request ... 1 of my doggies Millie was taken to the vets yesterday and had to stay overnight, it's been revealed that she is seriously ill even though she's only 8 :( we've been told to 'prepare for the worst' so can you all please please please keep your fingers crossed for us today!

Okay so today's challenge over at CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS is Anything Goes! Unfortunately I find the subject of this card kind of ironic after my earlier news.

I tried a technique that I'd seen in the latest issue of Craft Stamper on this card using ink sprays, heat embossing and paint dabbers! Not my usual style but I like it :)

This card fits the challenges at:
ALLSORTS - IT'S YOUR CHOICE
SIMON SAYS STAMP - ANYTHING GOES



INK SPRAYS USED:


INGREDIENTS:
The sentiment was written on the PC & the ribbon was from crafty ribbons but I can't find it on the website.



Thanks for popping by & please remember to keep your fingers crossed :)
Happy Crafting!

Crafty Stash!

Good Afternoon!
Do you remember me saying I had a little crafting spree the other day? Well here is a little bit of what I bought! lol I knew as soon as I pre-ordered the Compendium of Curiosities Vol 2 that I would NEED to buy the vol 1 ... well that's exactly what I did on friday morning! lol Along with 5 distress inks, sanding tool, blending foam pads and the blending tool. Unfortunately the blending tool was out of stock after I'd placed my order so I've got to sit tight and wait for it to arrive :(
I also ordered a big tub of white gesso paint as I'd bought some items to 'alter' so expect to see some crafting projects that aren't my usual style!


I also wanted to let you know that I have put quite a few crafty things for sale over on ebay. Not only have I put some of my cards up but also some rubber stamps. I have a lot of stamps that I just seem to never use so instead of gathering dust I thought they should go to a good home!
I am currently adding more items for sale so keep checking up over the rest of the day :)


Here is a little peek at some of the items I have for sale:





Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Good Morning!
Thanks for all the lovely comments on my circular tilda tag, they were lovely to read!
I have to say that ever since watching Tim Holtz on tuesday I have had a right spending spree this week, so much so that I think I have a little problem! lol I shall post a pic of what I bought below this when it arrives as fingers crossed it should all be delivered in a couple of hours .... so watch this space! lol ....

Okay so this week's challenge over at PBSC is a Sketch that was designed by me! If you find the large circle a bit daunting as I know they can be a pain to cut out then why not do what I did and use a doily :)

Good Morning!
Did you all catch Tim Holtz on QVC yesterday??? I certainly did I was hooked lol I stayed up to watch the launch at midnight then the following shows at 3pm and 6pm. Needless to say I may have also developed a crush on him :P Although I know I'm not the only one who did lol I couldn't resist putting an order in for his Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2 & 4 mini accents either ....


Now I've just got to wait until the start of April for it to arrive! lol The only downside is that it's made me realise that I NEED volume 1 now!!!
