Blog Candy Giveaway:)

ooh....I've just been checking out what's been happening over at Kooky's Kreations and just had to share this with you...go over to visit Feline Playful to get a current list of challenges/ sketches/scrapbooking ideas...on a daily basis...what a great idea! And with an added bonus...become a follower and be in the chance to win a little bit of blog candy!

Birthday Celebrations (with a ClearlyiStamp twist!)

I made a dash to my craft desk the night before Kiddlywink1's 13th Birthday this week! And here's a little something that I came up with:) Lucky for me the card fits just perfectly in this months challenge over at ClearlyiStamp of 'Whoo wants to play?' - owl creations! So even though I managed to have a mid week play, I have only just now had a chance to show you my card! What a busy week we've had...13th Birthday, grandparents visiting, school open night, country week soccer training, 13th Birthday sleepover party, jetty fishing, phew...fortunately we have had a VERY relaxing Sunday! I even managed to create a couple of other cards that you'll see below!

SSSC85 and OCCSC32 both cards with a Stampin' Royalty#36 Twist

This weeks sketch over at Sweet Sunday just lent itself to the beginnings of my Christmas card stash....(oops I missed out on reading the added bonus challenge about it being a birthday card) Oh well...the stamped images are from Stamp It! and are called 'Christmas Delight' - I've had the stamp for AGES...I've cut three of the images and coloured them using my Stampin' Up! Wondercrayons & blender pen:) The colours were inspired from this weeks Picture Perfect Inspiration challenge over at Stampin' Royalty ...and to be honest not the 'normal' Christmas colours I'd use but as you can see below...I liked the combination so much that I used them again!

I've also used the colours again for the second card that I made today using the sketch over at Our Creative Corner...another one for the Christmas stash! Aahhhh...with a cold,wet, stay in your PJ's watching dvds kind of day we've had today...I love it when life lends itself to relaxing and a little bit of time to craft:)
