Little Boys at Work

Boys cards always can be such a tough one to create so here's one I did the only problem I have with this stamp is it ends to quickly I should have stamped the front on the back in hindsight but I just coloured it instead.  For those of you who know Darnell holds a challenge everyonce in a while to get us using our New/Old stash that's just lying around see those buttons they are OLD they are REALLY OLD Over a few decades old I believe they are bakelite from 1940's they are older then me.  So I think I've gotten the Never Been used stash covered on this one for sure, 
Challenges - 

NBUS - AG #4 (Buttons from 1940's ,Charm)

Darnell's Challenge

Vintage Buttons - WOJ Hemp Cord, Love Charm. Paper - Basic Grey, Bazzil Cardstock.
Markers - Faber Castell, Sharpie,Spectrum Prisma Color. Ink Memento

Thanks for looking

Here is my space this week I've just finished two DT cards and haven't touched and noticed I haven't posted up anything for WOYWW
The Blue book holds some fancy pre done die cuts they get all stuck together if they are all jammed in a bag and this old photo album works perfectly to slide them in 

I did manage to finish two purses last week little totes I'll try to pop a picture up of them together for next week 

thanks for looking hugs Nikki
I'll pop around later on to as many peeps as I can

Below is 302 Post!!
Happy St Patty's Day for those of you on this side of the pond and Happy Hangover day to you on the other side :)

So here's my space this week I made all my pillows that I wanted for my little breakfast nook and that left me with some left over pieces that just happen to make me a little purse and then a bigger one with gold lining seeing the little one just holds next to nothing and I don't mind it for walks or going out at nite and only need little things but when your phone takes up half we have a problem lol
It's not a large purse my phone slides in a little area and I just have room for a few other things I carry around so I'm making a bigger one using the reverse side of the fabric for the bigger one
which has the gold lining inside Love this material it's a Linen all the way from Italy So pretty!!!
you can see it underneath the finished purse used some Tim Holtz buttons they just matched the colours perfectly too
My Fur baby protecting the material I didn't need and 
now he's passed out sleeping on it must like that silky feeling !!

Well I've not been creating to many paper crafts this week I've been sewing up a few pillows and creating some new digital stamps to finally put in the shop. Spring is coming and we all want some nice warm weather not that sticky hot weather. I love spring and fall so here is my space .
It's funny I took this picture and realized how messy it looks oh and I treated myself to some new marker a set of spectrum light shades 24 new ones seeing I really wanted them lol didn't need em just couldn't put it down once I picked it up lol
 So right after I took this picture I put my sewing machine away to see if I could do any thing with the left overs from the pillows they where sample pieces I bought for 3 dollars each and most of the material was originally super expensive a yard from 20-70 so loved it and they where in the new colour pallet I really want to play in so I'm guessing a small tote bag will be made with the scraps 
 Here's a close up of them such pretty colours I've bought a few others seeing I was a good girl and chopped these all up and made pillows and the cases are not coming off if some one spills something on these they are all going in the wash to get cleaned up 
 So I managed to get to a lot of people last week and will try again this week to do the same and follow whoever leaves a comment so I can see your desk early gotta love Blog lovin for that I have a whole WOYWW section so I only have to view who's posted there spaces up.

Also anyone who leaves a comment will be in to win 
a Mini RAK from Limited Runs Digital Stamps to
Ends next WED !!

Happy Wed

WOYWW HAPPY 300 !!!!

Holy Smokes can you believe 300 Posts of WOYWW that's a lot of desks over the years I've been playing along since the first little bit since 2009 and for me I've had an ever changing desk/floor and moved a few times sometimes monthly my space has been moved around ... magically over time I've gotten more stash from my little nothings I started with. I now have a sweet little collection that I keep in check(mostly)cause as much as I would love every type out there just isn't enough time or space here for that lol one can dream. That's what I love about Digital stamps no mess so I've opened a small store Limited Runs to keep me drawing and having fun just being creative and sharing my digi too from time to time.
So Here is my space this week and not much has changed I've flipped over a card I'm making for an upcoming DT challenge for the one team I've been on for years too and the little squirrel is for another challenge all I've done is used water colours on it and yep pulled out my old water colour paints to do it. 
Noticed my stamps are still from last week (can you say LAZY lol) out along with some clear ones that are going to go for sale at $2.00each on my page up top a CD case one has flowers and the other ones are fun border stamps there are 3 of those just have to take a better picture of them and post em up. 
My Lovely Brad box is open I'm trying to be good and use them instead of hoard them but sometimes I have to look at them 1st before I start using them up lol. 

So I will be popping around to as many people as I can and if your new to all of this we are group that just share our spaces some small some large some clean and some messy but you will find this is one fun thing to do it becomes an addiction !!!! 

have a wonderful day and HAPPY 300 Julia it's been a lot of WOYWW  !! to many more !!

WOYWW + Winners

It's WOYWW time again and here's my space going through and organizing my rubber seeing there some are some not stamped out so I can have a quick glace on the other side to see how it looks etc
So I'm trying to group them with those with foam, no foam then into companies/holidays it's a process that works most of the time lol. 
I am always amazed at baby wipes and how they clean our stamps remove marker ink and manage to be safe enough to use on your skin to remove a mess. 
 So here's a close up of those I'm rearranging at the moment it's a wide assortment for sure and seeing I don't own enough of each to get there own individual pages I just try my best to theme them up one way or another :)  looks like foam vs no foam at the moment lol
Winners of my little RAK day giveaway are Lynda Beazley and Eliza congrats please send me your emails so I can get you prizes to you both

Winter butterflies

How often can you ever use butterflies and snowflakes in one card well I couldn't help myself when I started this one the sentiment just makes it work. I also had to colour in my little punched butterflies they where a little one dimensional for me so this is leading to me making 6 more cards similar to this one just with different papers so here is my sample card.
The embossing powder is huge "Bling Bling"  from WOW it does not need help sticking down 
but I do use the heat gun from underneath seeing it can blow off everywhere lets just say I vacuumed up after in my space glitter gets everywhere :)

Just a Touch of Colour

Our Sponsor this week is Milk n Coffee and we want to see white on white with a touch of colour. I've coloured my image with a pencil just to shade the little peeps and snowman and used Pencil crayons to add the touch of colour I found them to be a little rough so I went over them with a pale marker just to blend the pencil together.

WOYWW & Winner

So It's WOYWW and here's my space a little more colourful then last week but almost the same. I coloured in the little birds and covered the offensive Christmas word over lol for some of you who think it's way to early to create them so soon. I just had a blast colouring these guys up and couldn't make them all the same.
Also A little happy mail on my desk from GranMargaret amd Darnell thank you both for the sweet cards made my Mon and then Tues for sure :)
Just finished building some kitchen cabinets took so much longer then I wanted to UGG!!
let's just say no wall or floor is ever perfectly LEVEL, and when they tell you the wrong thing on the directions bloody frustrating at least the other half is a contractor or I'd still be there trying to figure out what is going on wrong with it all (2 person job for sure)
The lucky winner of that brown envelope on my desk is Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith
send me your snail mail and I'll pop it in the post
