My Favourite Things ♥♥

Oh dear! I have been such a terrible blogger again. I just don't know where the days disappear to, and I can't imagine how some folks can post a card every they sleep? I am still trying to catch up with emails and comments!

This candy should have been on here weeks ago, but I just didn't get around to it.
As is usual, it's made up of some of my favourite things, which I hope you will like too.

These papers are from Papirgleder and can be bought from Astrid and Kees at Crea Duymelot in The Netherlands.
As shown above, there are 3 sheets. Each 12x12 sheet has 4 designs in 6x6 size, and they are really, really pretty papers.

Whimsy Wee stamp - Peggy.

Magnolia Tilda with Hawaiian Flower.

Magnolia Tilda Loves Flowers.

TCP Studio Clear Stamps.

Magnolia Doohickey Wave Tag.

Rules of Entry.
Candy is open to my existing followers only, a small thank you for all your support.
I will ship world wide but I am not liable for any customs/duties that some countries impose.
To enter please click on the blue froggy.
Thanks for looking.
Love Elaine xxx

Sugar Bowl Challenge ~ 92

Good Morning :)
I'm back with my card for the Sugar Bowl challenge.

(Our Sugar Mama Gayle is having some technical difficulties...loss of broadband, so the challenge won't be posted until later today when she has been re-connected again)

We have a fabby sketch to follow from Sweetie Erika - thank you Erika, I loved this sketch :)
And this time the optional theme is a colour one "Worn Turquoise".
No Erika, I did not like the theme! DI's aren't the best when it comes to turquoise! But I like to rise to the challenge and at least give it a  try.

I was lucky enough to get Goosey Gander as a rubber stamp in my DT pack almost 2 years ago, and Karen has now made her available as an instant sugar-fix digital image HERE.

As per usual, she's coloured with DI re-inkers and markers.
Skin: Tattered Rose and Tea Dye.
Hair & Shoes: Antique Linen and Walnut Stain.
Turquoise Shades (OK, more blue than turquoise!) Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers.
Beige: Antique Linen..and more Antique Linen!

The papers are MME Stella and Rose - Hattie, the sentiment is from a set by Whimsy and the flutterby's are MFT dies.

As always, there is a prize chosen at random for one lucky winner, their choice of any 4 Sugar Nellie stamps, rising to 6 stamps if we reach 100+ entries.
Please bob on over to the Sugar Bowl to see the fab cards off my Sweetie sisters..but it might be later in the afternoon before Gayle has broadband again and can post the challenge.
Thanks for looking.

Big Hearted Crafters!

I just wanted to pop on here and say a BIG thank you to all the lovely crafters who have sent a card to Alana. They have helped enormously to brighten this brave little girls days, and it means so much not only to Alana but also to her family.
For some updated news on Alana please visit Donaldas blog HERE.
I have sent a card, but I'm going to send another since it appears not all the mail I send to the USA is reaching it's final destination! 

Thank you are all so thoughtful and caring :)

Sugar Bowl Challenge ~ 91

Good Morning :)

I'm back today with a card for the new Sugar Bowl challenge. As always, we have a fab sketch to follow, this time from Sweetie Fi, with an optional theme of 'Shabby Chic'.

I've used another 'Annie' stamp...just cos I luvs her a lot :)
She is an older image and sometimes the older ones get neglected as we are all so desperate to ink up our new rubber. So when I was cleaning out the boxes of stamps in my craft room, I also spent a little time inking up some of my older here is Catch A Falling Star from the Leanne Ellis range.

As usual, she is coloured with a mix of DI re-inkers and markers.
Skin: Tattered Rose and Tea Dye.
Hair: Antique Linen and Vintage Photo.
Pinks: Spun Sugar,Victorian Velvet and Aged Mahogany.
Blues: Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Faded Jeans.
Star: Sparkling Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Rusty Hinge.

The delicious papers are from The Scrapcake - The Bright Side of Life, sadly these are now discontinued (sniffle sniffle ) I thought the papers had a 'shabby chic' feel to them.
Not much else to say about this's a bit bare on the old embellishment front..just a few pearls, some glamour dust on the star and the sentiment is from Elzybells (no longer trading) cut out with MFT Fish Tail banner dies.

As always, there is a prize chosen at random for one lucky winner, their choice of any 4 Sugar Nellie stamps, rising to 6 stamps if we reach 100+ entries. 
Please check out all the other gorgeous cards over on the Sugar Bowl from my Sweetie sisters.

Thanks for looking.

Brown Paper Packages ~ Winner :)

I've been off work on holiday this week but I've been working like a demon at home. I have blitzed through my craft room and everything has been thoroughly cleaned, and every box and drawer has been emptied and sorted through.
The good news is that I have a squeaky clean, organised and de-cluttered room.
The bad news is now I have a cupboard full of crap craft stuff which I still need to sort through.

OK, what I'm really here for...
Mr Random has done his job and picked a number:

Congratulations Alyce! If you could please EMAIL ME with your full postal address then I can pop your goodies in the mail on Monday.

A big "Thank you" to everyone that entered.
I had some delicious papers arrive this week and I bought extras to use as I will be back soon with another candy :)

Thanks for looking.
