This week i celebrated my Birthday too, i had lots of wonderful gifts and cards form family and friends (thank you all muchly)  and i will also be enjoying Birthday celebrations this weekend so not much time to play with my new prismacolour pencils ...any experts out there are more than welcome to give me some tips using these lol!

so for now im posting this weeks design card i have made for this weeks GLITTER GEEKS CHALLENGE theme is "Recipe"I thought this may be a recipe for disaster as I opted for something other than my usual "first choice preferences"

L.O.T.V image coloured with pro markers, nestabilities oval deckle edge die and i paper pierced around the edge, design paper from my minds eye " true blue" collection, stamped around the design using sentiment from woodware, silver grey ribbon and pearl beads from stash.....have fun crafting folks!...X

Hi everyone!
I'm still laughing to myself but think I will be the only one in my house that can see the funny side ! ....Saturday morning and my family was off out doing fabby fun things whilst i stood doing the ironing ready for Monday... I went upstairs with  hubby's trousers on hanger in hand when I got distracted in my craft area as I needed to get some ribbon out of the box it was all stuffed away in,.... when this happened! ... don't ask where his trousers are..... he he he!!!

I mentioned in an earlier post id let you know why I  have been so busy, well the reason for this is I have been invited to join the Glitter Geek's Design Team !!! ...oooh im having so much Fun! ... its quite exciting creating designs that i hope, you will like and hopefully bring you a little inspiration to your crafting, the team are a fabulous bunch and im very proud to be involoved, everything is quite new too me but im loving every minute, wish me luck :)

For this weeks theme "two's company" I have chosen an image from my favourite stamp collection, two adorable Tilda's, stamped using dye based ink and coloured two different shades of pink pro markers, it's an easel style card created by using Marianne circles die on cream card for the base and antique gold mirror for the layer, this die is so versatile as it can be used in so many different ways! some ribbon and flourish to accent the finished card and of course two pink and cream roses from my stash! ...have Fun Crafting Folks!
