Glitter N Sparkle - DT theme "Show us some Snow!"
Evening all....had a bit of a break from blogland...the usual not enough hours in the day stuff with work life and family things and visiting Terry Ross Paper Show where I got to buy some new goodies and meet the fabulous Kathy Mills.  I booked into one of her workshops and had a laugh met some lovely ladies and made a fantastic box card!  Great day looking forward to the next one in January.
 Anyhow....Its a new challenge over at Glitter N Sparkle ...its Challenge 60 "Show us some snow"....although the real stuff can stay away until at least Christmas Eve which coincides with me having a holiday from work!  Its a great challenge with some great prizes as always from our lovely sponsors this week Inky Impressions, Sassy Studios & Crafty Sentiments.  My chosen image this week is from Sassy Studios...Snowman Pin Up ...another gorgeous image I got to use
 As always going to enter this card into a couple of challenges
anything goes

Well that's me for this evening...happy crafting

Autumn Colours

Good evening heck its getting a tad chilly now...the heating is on permanently in the Robinson household now ....and its staying on!  On the plus side to these dark cold nights is that there is more chance of crafting now!  And its that time of the week again for showing you my card for DT over at Glitter N Sparkle and a new challenge "Autumn Colours".  Once again lots of fantastic sponsors and fab prizes up for the taking, so head over there and have a peek!
Here's my card below, using the Grand Duchess from Stamping Chef, which I loved colouring with colours that I don't normally use.

I used my promarkers for the image, background papers came from my September Swop partner in The Hunkydorables group so not sure where they originate from but they were lush!  Ribbon and gems from my own stash....and then used my lovely new Tonic Fancy Flourish dies which cut like a dream...Tonic seriously are my favourite crafting products when it comes to dies and punches ..utterly addictive!
OOOOOhhhh almost forgot ....I won a challenge last week with my last card blogged at Creative Fingers!...was chuffed to bits and am hooked now on entering more!!  With that said I am entering this card into:

Right ...signing off as am off to watch the last episode of Under the Dome, which has had me hooked from Day 1 ....and I know that they will keep me on the edge of my seat until series 2!!!!
Happy Crafting,

Crafternoon time

Good afternoon....had a couple of hours off work today whilst my daughter has her home tutoring and thought what better way to use my time than to blog since the weather is a little bit damp and wet there really isn't much else to do...well that a little white lie as plenty of ironing to do and dust to wipe off places...but heck why bother they can always be done another day!
Here's my card for today

I really cannot remember where the stamp was from (not that I have that many!) the only thing I remember was that I got it from the local Craft shop in Elsecar Heritage after I had been to a promarker colouring class....needed to brush up my colouring skills.  Really pleased with what I learnt and would definitely recommend learning from an expert you pick up some useful tips on shadowing and blending...would definitely go again.  Anyway would like to enter this card into 2 challenges
Oldie but goodie challenge
Bingo!!   Die cut and flowers
Week 226 How does your garden grow
Right tutoring is nearly over and its back to work I go!
Take care everyone

Glitter N Sparkle DT

Good evening fellow crafters.....well what a very very long time it as been since I last posted in blogland....11 months to be exact (so much for me promising myself more TLC was needed). 
Genuine reasons for not posting and its nothing to do with not crafting in all that time as I have but its been a very difficult year in my personal life and due to this its meant a lack of time to sit and take the time to give my blog page the love it needs !!!
Anyhow maybe its time to take that bit of time now and what better way than to kick start it off is with my bit of news that I am now a DT for Glitter N Sparkle who are celebrating their first year birthday celebrations!!!  I fancied a challenge and am looking forward to the new weekly challenges.
So to the few followers that I have ...come and take a look at this weeks challenge

this weeks theme is
"add some metal"
My piece is a gorgeous metal butterfly from Mei flower gifted by my lovely friend Linda (as I had used all my stash of them!!)
My image is from Fitztown called Fae 9 (one of our sponsors this week)
along with
Crafty sentiments....3 images
Sassy studio....4 images
Scribbles designs....3 images
Fitztown....3 images
Inky impressions....$10 gift certificate
Well worth joining us !!
I really enjoyed using this image from Fitztown coloured in with my beloved promarkers
and papers and gems from my own stash.  Also used my tonic punch.
For now its a goodnight and hopefully will be back in blogland very very soon.
Take care everyone ...Debby xx
