I would like to enter this card into the Crafters Companion Challenge No 19 - New Beginnings.
The rubber stamp is by s.w.a.l.k from Crafters Companion and I have coloured it with Promarkers. I love the characters that s.w.a.l.k. have created and they are so versatile. The purple paper is one of my favourites from Craft Creations. I finished the card with a few purple pearls and some ribbon.
I have promised myself a nice tidy house for the new year, so I really should go and make a start. . . . there again, I really do need a lot more practise at colouring!

The rubber stamp is from Penny Black and this cute little hedgehog is called 'gift hedgy'. I have coloured it in using promarker pens. The gorgeous swirly red paper is from Craft Creations and the die cut ponsettia was made using a marianne creatable die. I have just added some holly leaves, a piece of ribbon and a bit of bling!
Well, it's nearly Christmas, and I still have food to buy, presents to wrap and a house to tidy before the big day. I have two young very excited children who can't wait. I'd better go and get some work done!!
Happy Christmas everyone!

I would like to enter this card into the Lili of the Valley Challenge this week. I have been following this blog for ages but never actually entered. How sad that it is the last one, I have loved looking at all the entries, there are always some fabulous cards.
The gorgeous rubber stamp is 'Twinkling Star' from LOTV as is the sentiment stamp. I used promarkers to colour the image and added a die cut snowflake, some silver stars and gems.The papers are from my stash and I think they are papermania.

This week's challenge is 'white out', and I would like to enter this card. I've only just started using rubber stamps so my colouring isn't great! The stamp is called 'Royal Mail' and I think that the hedgehog is ever so cute! I covered the post box with glossy accents in the hope it would hide my colouring mistakes!

I'm absolutely chuffed to bits - I've just found out that I've won a runner up prize in the latest Craft Creations Competition. I love their classic decoupage papers, I used the singing snowmen for this card.
This is the first time I've put anything onto a blog - sorry for the poor photo!

New from Struggling Authors and Night Publishing
'The Eye of Erasmus' is the fantastical and captivating tale for all ages of Erasmus. A baby born during a thunder storm, who is clearly destined to be special and, initially, especially obnoxious with his flashing black eyes and haughty ways ... until he finds love. The trouble is that the girl, literally of his dreams, hasn't actually been born yet. No problem ...... Oh, but there is ....... Danger lurks ........ http://tgeering.blogspot.com/p/buy-book.html
'Knifing the Famous' is an intimate, emotionally complex, portrait of John Watson who was a pioneer British plastic surgeon who operated originally on 'The Guineapigs' - pilots who had been shot down in flames during WW2 and grossly disfigured - and who rose to the top of his field with clients ranging from Lord Lucan and a wife of the Kray Brothers, to Lady Churchill and members of the Royal Household. The big question: did he operate on Lord Lucan a second time immediately before he disappeared after the murder of his children's nanny Sandra Rivett?
