Blue and Brown at Allsorts

Seasons Greetings to you all and as we are nearly there Happy New Year. I have so many dreams/plans for this new year and am determined it shall be better than the last!

Anyway.....i had a trip to the stamp addicts sale today and came back with a few goodies (my christmas present to myself lol)

You may be seeing some stamps by judith creations over the coming weeks as i stocked up lol

Now the challenge at allsorts is blue and brown and i think i have fulfilled the brief. I have had my eye on this stamp for a while and finally gave in today! i can see some lovely red poppy versions, spring blooms and at half price it was a must :o)

2 Colours

Hi

Those of you who follow me will know that i have a bit of a thing about poppies!

I bought this panel from Inkylicious and think it has got a lot of potential.  I'm not too sure about this card but for a first play think its got potential!

I have used red and black for this creation.

I have asked Santa for a new camera (fingers crossed) as mine is on its last legs and in the current weather its hard to get a good picture anyway,

One Card two challenges

Time is running away at the moment so i am doing a rare thing and entering 2 challenges with one card.

The sir stampalot challenge is "its a frame up" and the penny black saturday challenge is friendship (they are very special friends of the lovey dovey variety).

Yes before you ask i am in a more classical christmas mode this year and yes i am sick of making christmas cards but it is less that 100 days to go - woohoo :o(


This penny black stamp comes as the deer and the holly so i used the holly to make a frame and 3'd it above the deer which are stamped on brown design paper and then the stag is paper pieced in a darker brown. The hooly berry's are red crystals and i have stamped a hobby arts sentiment which says Delight in the beauty that surrounds you.

The challenge for sir stampalot is here and penny black saturday challenge here

Ho Ho Ho oh no

Lovely Day

I was lucky enough to attend a blog girl workshop at Sir Stampalot at the weekend and would like to say a big thank you to Brenda for her had work.

It was really nice meeting some new faces from blog land and also seeing a couple of ladies i met at a christmas workshop last year.

I had a few challenges particularly with the brayer cards but am raring to give some another go when i have time.

Happy Crafting
