If all has gone to plan then I should be back at work today after 5 weeks sick leave (feeling very nervous about going back actually) and this post should be scheduled to post today ...

I have had this little cutie for ages but had not stamped her up (until now!). I have made this card for my lovely boss Tracy at Dies to Die for for the lovely pressies she sent me for Christmas (I am very behind with my thank you's this year). I have stamped Birgitta out and coloured her with Copics, cut out and added to base with 3d foam pads. The base is a sheet of Lemon Bazzill CS added to a white card blank followed by a layer of paper from the MY Favourite Things Spring Collection which can be found here. I have then wrapped a piece of raffia lace around and added the pearls (both from Quixotic Paperie) then added the greeting to finish.

STAMPS: CC Designs. INK: Memento Tuxedo Black. CS: Craftwork Cards, Bazzill Basics, My Favourite Things. ACCESSORIES: Raffia lace by Quixotic Paperie, Pearls by Quixotic Paperie, Melissa Frances rub-on, Inkssentials pen, Copic markers - E0000, E000, E00, R20, E55, E57, G40, G82, Y00, Y11, Y15.

Swiss Miss Rosalie

Isn't she a cutie? She is one of the new CC Designs Swiss Pixies and is available at Dies to Die for. I have made this for my DT friend Natalie who's Birthday it is today (I hope you have a great day Natalie!) I have stamped Miss Rosalie and coloured with Copics, cut out and added to base with DST. The base is simply layers of paper from the Basic Grey Urban Prairie collection. Prima flowers (also available at DTDF) added and sentiment stamped to finish. Apologies again for the bad photos. Have you seen the mega sale that is going on over at Dies to Die for ... some big bargains to be had!

Lazy Afternoon

Here is my first card of 2010. I was feeling a bit better this morning so I thought I would make this card for my Grandad and also enter it into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge of Shabby Chic (this is probably about as 'rustic' as I will get!) I have stamped out Lili Of The Valley 'Lazy Afternoon' and coloured with Copics; cut out with a Nestie circle then added to base with DST. The base is papers from the Basic Grey Archaic & Granola pads with Stampin' Up linen thread wrapped around. Message stamped and button added to finish. Apologies for the dark photo's but I haven't done this for a while! *Please check out my bling giveaway below too!*

Giveaway 2010 - Ribbon (CLOSED)

Second of my giveaways is the ribbon. Again, nothing wrong with it at all just doing some spring cleaning and making way for some more new ribbon! Most of it is spotty but some is plain and all colours and sizes too!

So all you have to do is add your name to Mr Linky and I'll (try) and pick a winner on Wednesday 13th Jan. Thanks ang good luck. ** If you do not have a blog then you can still enter and use my addy as the URL! **

I would also like to just say thank everyone for their lovely get well messages, I am still undergoing tests as an outpatient and still off work due to the pain and side effects of the tablets but hopefully I will be on the mend soon.

Giveaway 2010 - Rub-ons (CLOSED)

Sadly I haven't been able to make any cards as of yet, I am still off sick but have been able to go through some of my craft stuff and have a bit of a spring clean. I have some rub-ons and some ribbon to give away to you lovely people.

First up is the rub-ons, there is nothing wrong with these at all (they were replacements from Do Crafts when the first batch of rub-ons didn't work, those of us oldies will remember this lol) and some out of the packs have been used but most are intact, it is just that I haven't used them in a while and to save them just sitting in a draw I thought they may be in use to someone.

Apparently as a free member of Mr Linky you can only use one a day so for this draw can you please just leave me a comment but more than one comment or an inapropriate comment will be deleted, thanks! I will (try) and draw a winner on Wednesday 13th Jan.
