Hi all! For some reason Blogger won't let me comment if the comment box is embedded into your posts so please dont think I am being rude - I honestly cant comment on your wonderful creations which is soo frustrating! I can only comment if the comment box opens a new window. Hopefully all will be fixed soon! Rach :) x

Whats On Your Workdesk? Wednesday

Hi all its that time again to load up photos of the tiny desk.

This week its not so bad at least you can see the actual desk unlike last week!

Ive been playing with my new Wild Rose Studio Milton stamp and this is what was left from the playing session. (He's been moved to the dining table to dry hence why he's not in the photo.)
Ill load him up once he can stand without his flower falling off!

Considering its half term I haven't had much time to craft :( hopefully tomorrow Ill find time in between retyping my maths assignment that the stupid Uni computer deleted on Monday when I tried to put it on my USB stick grrrr.

Anyway hope everyone is well and Ill try and get round to everyone sooner this week as I have no cupcakes to stand in my way! (They went down a storm btw and the dodgy trefoils weren't even questioned!!)

Have a good day :)

A purple Christmas

I thought Id take a break from making my trefoil cupcakes for our Guide and Brownie Anniversary party tonight! 25 baked, iced and decorated with a blue trefoil! I have realised that my cake decorating skills are pretty none existent lol never mind they still taste yummy!
Anyway I was inspired by Rachel's Lili of the Valley bear card with all of the lovely shades of purple when I remembered I ordered a LOTV bear stamp last year and shame on me had never used it! (I am gonna blame the fact that I had placement over Christmas last year and must say that it RUINED Christmas so that is my excuse lol)

But here he is now in all his purple glory!

Coloured with promarkers and layered onto Pink Petticoats paper. I don't know why I went for the spots and stripes instead of snowflakes! I was trying something new and liked it for once lol.

I found some lovely glittery white flock in the local craft shop and it was only 99p so thought Id give it a go and think its turned out pretty well!

I have added some Wild Orchid Crafts roses with some added Stickles for a bit of sparkle and the sentiment is from a LOTV Christmas sentiment stamp set.

I would like to enter this into:

Lili of the Valley Thursday Challenge - Winter Fun

Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge - Pastel Colours

Simple Doodles - Winter Warmers

Passion for Promarkers - Pink/white or purple/white Christmas

[Edit - Thanks Denise for the heads up - I would also like to enter this into Stamping Vacations challenge - Watch This - Bear Country]
Hope everyone is well in blogland!

WOYWW and Centenary Day!!!

Happy WOYWW and Centenary Day for all of you involved with Girlguiding UK!

Its the Centenary end today with half a million girls and women in the UK renewing their promise at 20:10 on 20.10.2010! How awesome!

So just a quick WOYWW as I have to get organised for the ceremony tonight - polish the badge and all that lol!

A little crafting has gone on this weekend with the Pink Petticoat penguins making another appearance. I loved the little pink one so much I decided I would make a blue one and think he is just as cute!

Coloured with the PMs of course and layered onto Pink Petticoat snowflake paper.

The tiny desk this week is a full on mess! And has turned into a dumping ground for all things craft related lol. Never mind Ill tidy it later (she says with fingers crossed!)

Hope all are well

Im back....

Hello all

Ive missed quite a bit of blogging these past two weeks as we had some sad news two Fridays ago. The BF's Grandad, who lived next door to us with Nana sadly passed away so I have had a pretty stressful two weeks with going back to uni and trying to be strong for BF and his family. He'll always be missed but life unfortunately must move on (with him in our hearts of course).

So I decided to treat myself to the wonderful Halloween Anya digi from The Greeting Farm!! Just in time for Cupcake Craft Challenges *Scary Creatures*. Now this Anya aint that scary but hey ho its still Halloweeny!

And just as I was catching up on my blogging I noticed that the challenge over at Passion for Promarkers is to use *orange,black,green and purple with an option of Halloween* which I think this card pretty much covers lol!

And on even further blog inspection I have realised I can enter this card into these challenges too! :

               Alys Sunday Challenge - Halloween
Lexis creations - Spooky
   Cutie Sunday - Halloween
    Bee Crafty - Halloween

So that's all for now. I hope everyone is well and I will hopefully see you all soon!
