Newest challenge at through the purple haze

Hi there folks another week of summery weather!  I love it myself but I think its so funny to hear people complaining.... mind you the same ones who complain that its too cold/wet/dry/windy/snowy.... etc etc etc

So its time for another challenge over at Through the Purple Haze  This week its a nice summery challenge of 'anything with flowers'  Now you know me I love a few flowers!  This week we have an added twist of a surprise prize.... trust me its a corker!  You will not be disappointed.

So here's my card for this week.  I inked up one of my favourite Lili of the Valley mice stamps.  I LURVE these.  Not only are they super cute they colour up in two tics!  Well OK it might be 10 tics.... but its super quick.

So it was a bit of cutting and sticking, papers are Basic Grey... I think!  I've a pile of papers which from various pads that fell to pieces.... Flowers and tah dah!

So pop over the the challenge and get your entry in, the teamies have some awesome cards to share.

New challenge at Through the Purple Haze

Well good morning!

 I know two posts so close together!

Today sees the first challenge go live at Through the Purple Haze and as I said above little ol' moi is on the DT!

So this week is a double challenge week.  One of the challenges being sponsored by Indigo Blu - who incidentally make the most luscious red rubbah stamps!  And you can do so many things with rubbah!  To enter this challenge you must use Indigo Blu images.

There's also a tandem challenge sponsored by the fabulous Joanna Sheen!  That is Anything Goes!  That's where my little creation comes in.  Now I decided on something simple... yes folks I'm still a natural blonde ;)

So for me no stamping at all!  Mine is a touch of embossing and die cutting.  This was literally a five minute card - I hate it when some say that and 25 minutes later you're still cutting....

So it was emboss a background with a Cuttlebug heart folder, mat and layer, die cut two heart - I used Doo Hickey hearts and repeat the first step and add some bakers twine, a couple of black pearls and it was done!

So pop over to the and check out the awesome make from the Teamies.

Well its little old me!

Thought I'd best shift my butt and get back to this forgotten corner of Blogland.

Well there's been a lot going on since I was here last.  The most awful and devastating news is that my beloved babies aren't with us any more.  yes that's right.  The 'person' 'looking after' (hah yes!) allowed them to escape whilst we were on holiday.  Well that was the ned of the holiday and we've been frantically searching ever since.  There's been sightings but they aren't here.

To say we're heartbroken is an understatement, add family aggro.... and well I'll shut up before you all nod/run off!

However a spot of good news, I've been invited to play with the girls at Through The Purple Haze team!
