Paper Pieced Somethings

Hi! I have to say it's just great being on holiday, although I do miss having my laptop at hand, but then again aren't holidays for relaxing? I've just been to Cyprus, which was fab but VERY hot! I have some pics to share with you when I get back, as I'm currently visiting family in the UK. Anyway, it's difficult for me to get access to the internet at the moment, so here's just a very quick post to let you know about this week's Stamp Something challenge.

The challenge is "Paper Pieced Somethings" and is sponsored this week by Whiff of Joy, who do the most beautiful stamps. Here is my DT card ...


You have to create something using paper piecing, a technique that I just love. If you're not familiar with the technique, check out the Stamp Something blog for more details and to view all the other DT cards! I've used one of my Gorjuss Girls stamps and have paper pieced her dress and tights using Basic Grey paper. I hope you can play along with us this week, I'm sure you'll enjoy paper piecing and you could win a fab prize from the fantastic Whiff of Joy range!

Stamp Something - Sketch with Dustin Pike

Hello Everyone! Hope you're all having a nice weekend! At last, I'm on holiday!!! Work has been a real pain this year and I've been waiting for the summer hols for a long time now and can't believe they're finally here! I just hope they don't fly by! It's been ages since I've had a good crafting session and my blog has suffered too through lack of time! Now I'm off on my hols tomorrow so I won't be able to get much done before I leave! I've got piles of stuff to do today so crafting will have to wait - AGAIN!

I have done one card though this week, and it's for the Stamp Something challenge this week "Sketch with Dustin Pike". Each member of the DT was given two fab Dustin Pike images and had to make something using the sketch. So here's my card...


The image was a download from Dustin's site "Doodle Dragon Studio", he has loads of fabby images available! The paper I used was Picnic Patch from Daisy and Dandelion and the text which reads "ensemble" (together) is a from a clear stamp set from Artemio. The ribbon and button are from my stash.

Please join in the challenge with us at Stamp Something, and check out the other fab DT creations over at the Stamp Something blog now!

I'm Back!

Just a little hello to let you all know I'm back from the sunny South of France! I can honestly say it was an EXHAUSTING trip, but I shall return (with my hubby though) so I can make the most of it next time! The scenery was just stunning in "Les Gorges du Verdon" where we did a fab rafting actvity, but not for the faint-hearted though! More about that soon, and hopefully some cards too!

Short of Time...

Hi everyone!

Hope you're having a good week so far! Sorry I'm not posting much at the minute but I'm very short of time, work is taking up the lot!!! Tomorrow I'm going away for 2 weeks, to the Cote d'Azur! Unfortunately I'm taking 10 terrible teenagers with me so it won't be all St Tropez chic unfortunately! I'm hoping to get back in one piece so I shall be back to blogland soon after! Thanks for your support!

Please pop back on Friday to see the new challenge from Stamp Something!
