Wanted Dead or Alive

Hello fellow groovers,
I think if most of us were honest we would say we weren't happy with 99% of what we make, when I listen to all the design team members I know its always the cards I love the most of theirs that they like the least.
The same goes for me its always the cards I nearly don't take in to Sirstampalot for samples that Janice loves the most.
Where am I going with my ramble?
This is one of the rare projects of my own that I really like and for some reason when I look at the pictures now, it makes me smile.
I made it with the latest release of Magnolia stamps, so here goes and I hope it puts a smile on your face too!
I couldn't fit all of the text on that I wanted to, I wanted to fit on Handy Andy dangerous with a glue gun.
Janice has been known to distress!

 and for Louise I wanted to put is a known Alcohol pen user

The stamps I used are: Golden creek backround, Lucky Edwin, Indian Tilda, and Mouline rouge Tilda all available from sirstampalot
I used the Tim Holtz Vintage Market Alphabet for the letters
Its probably one of the longest list of copics I have ever done !

Something sweet

Hi Guys and Gals,
Where does the time go, I promised myself I would catch up and blog all the cards I have been making after my last blog and what happened well.......
Its all Lisa Maybanks fault she makes the most amazing scrapbooks and she has got me hooked on Graphic 45 paper, so I have been playing making my own scrapbooks, as well as being inspired by Lisa herself I started the rocky road of searching inspiration from Youtube, I have lost hours of my life watching tutorials!! I just can't resist having a quick look before I blog then the next thing I know its time for bed.
Its been that bad my Sky planner is 95% full, so I promised myself at least one post this week, and I must finish a cheeky little Easter project I am making for Sirstampalot :0)
So here it is

The stamps I used are:Tilda with big icecream, venice, Postcard,  and New York all from Magnolia and of course from Sirstampalot
I used a Doohickey Romantic Lace
The copics I used are:
Pink RV10, RV00, RV000, RV0000
Hair E44, E43, E42, E41, E40
Skin E11, E02, E00, E000, E0000 and R20 for blush
Cream E53, E51, E50
So I am now off to try and clear the Sky planner and finish my crafty projects have a fab sunday

A little bit of colour

Hi Guys and Gals,
I know its about time, I am sorry I have had a bit of time to craft but just couldn't seem to get round to blogging about it.
I have Janice at Sirstampalot to thank to get me back into it, she gave me a fab new Tilda to play with called Poppy Tilda who is only available at Sirstamp, and some papers and made me promise to blog my card. So you will see its not my normal colour palette but I love the stamp she is soooo cute and it was nice to push myself out of my comfort zone.
I hope you like it and I will try and get back in the swing of it with a few more posts soon.

The Stamp I used is Poppy Tilda
The Papers are Bo Bunny Country garden Vines, and Country Garden Cut outs
The Doohickeys are Heart swirl branch, Lovely fence and Romantic Lace

Hello fellow groovers,
Just a very quick post, I am so sorry I have been missing in action, unfortunately in August my Dad passed away very unexpectedly.
So life has been very upside down and I had lost my mojo, luckily its back and I promise to start blogging some of my creations very soon.
But I just wanted to share I am so excited its the Sirstampalot Demo Day on the 27th October, all my favourite girlies are on there showing their talents on the day.
I will be there and I hope to see loads of you there for crafty fun :)
Hugs for now
