Like a bus!

I'm going to be like a bus the next few day or so I think!  Got so many things I want to colour and make between the study, kids, housework de dah de dah....  Been doing so much studying and applying for jobs I havent done a formal job application since 2000 so I stared at it for quite some time before overcoming the fear and putting down on paper.  Anyway I'm back this week with lots and lots to show you over the next few days!

Make sure you pop back on Wednesday as I've got another giveaway in conjunction with LETRASET to win a fabulous prize from one of their new ranges which I've had so much fun playing with these past few days!

Also before I move on just a huge thank you for entering my Fistful of Flexmarkers giveaway. The winner picked by is 11 so that is you CINDY!  Please email me your address and I'll pop these in the post for you :)

So what have I got for you tonight?  Lots!  Lots and lots but as Jimmy Cricket would say Come here theres more so dont forget to check back Wednesday for some more!

First up is one for THE STAMPMAN.  I was demong for them at Port Sunny a couple of weeks back using this absolutely gorgeous stamp by Stampendous called Crowscape.  I used a variety of colours of distress inks and had to remake the orange one 4 times as peeps kept asking for them lol!

This one uses a red and green distress ink which I swiped the pads down on a craft mat, sprayed with water then lifted the colour onto a card and stamped and embossed the image.

The theme this fortnight is NIGHT TIME so this fits really well.  Time to get all the spooky stamps out!  The Stampman also have a brand new website which is a lot smoother to use and plenty more products added with more being added daily so please do pop over and if you cant find something just ask :)

Would like to enter into

Next up is a Magnolia and I went a bit mad with the embellishments.  Seems I'm in an all or nothing mood!  I used a heart shaped doily thats dyed with distress ink (victorian velvet)  Theres some ribbon lace (the lace is hiding across the blue DP at the bottom)

I'd like to enter into....

And my first crimbly card of the year!  This one uses same method I used with the crowscape card above and I used the Stampendous Key Note stamp.

And last but not least this is the gorgeous stamp by Lemon Shortbread called Daisy Chain Melody which reminds me of Miss Mookins so much!  Mina has set the challenge over at Crafts and Me this fortnight and she'd like to see Blue, green and pink on your creations.

Thats all from me tonight, see you wednesday!
