Good Evening Ladies, I hope you have all had a good day today.
I have been at home this week due to Grot not feeling very well, he had the sickness bug on Monday, he was due to go back to school today but then got the squirts last night so we had to keep him off school again today and he will need to be off tomorrow as the school likes them to be clear for 48 hours, he is not a happy chap as he wants to see all his friends so fingers crossed he will be able to go on Friday.
Well I have managed to do a challenge, I just hope I have entered in time!
I have used a decoupage of Squeak (Grots Choice as he wanted to help me) The paper used is Imaginisce - Fairest of them all - Magic Meadow, Funky Foam for the scallop edge, mulberry flowers and the sentiment is from Oh my Word by Craftwork Cards.
Good Evening everyone, I hope you have all had a good weekend, we had great weather here today. We all went for a bike ride which was great fun (i will ache tomorrow!!) The boys are absolutley sparko!!!! So I will have the evening to myself.

Hello everybody, well the weekend is here at last, it's been a long week!!
Well I have had a busy time, I have entered a few challenges, which have been fun to do and I finished this exploding box for my friend Sarah at work.
I love making these as they are so special for the person who receives them, I try to personalise where possible. My friend was absolutely over the moon with this as it's for her Dad who she doesn't see to often as he lives in Dubai. She gave me some photo's her and her Dad from when she was younger, they are hidden under the flaps that say 'my dad'. I asked her for a colour scheme and all she said was manly! So I chose Burgundy (Bazill), Green (Anna Griffin), Cream(Bazill), Patterned (Basic Grey) and Gold (Mirri Card). On each layer and side I have added different elements and materials - Balloons, Presents Shirt and Ties Pint's of Beer and Birthday sentiments. I am just gutted that my camera decided to play up and I couldn't get any more pictures.
Here is my entry for the; Allsorts Challenge #4 - Pink and White I have used my new stamp from Samposurus Stamps - Fairy Princess, some Anna Griffin Paper, and I have embossed the top part using Cuttlebug - D'vine Swirl, Mullberry Flowers, Sentiments are from Papermania Clare Curds Signature Range, Ribbon, Tags and Pearls are from stash.
I hope you have all had a great weekend, I went to the Craft Barn in Lingfield today with my friend Heidi and we had great fun as they had a Demo Day with lots of great idea's - my head was spinning when we left, just I hope I can remember the tips!! ha ha
Well have a good week and Blog again soon. Kind Regards Steffi
Here is my entry for your first challenge - Yellow and Purple.
I have used my Angel Anya Stamp - she has been water coloured and her wings have been glittered. Lilac and Yellow BazillBling, Patterned Paper from Memory Keepers, MullberryFlowers from Petaloo, Ribbon and Bling from Stash. The Make a Wish sentiment is from Papermania (Clare Curds Signature Range).
What I used to make up this card, the patterned paper is from 'the Goods' the other shades of lilac are from stash, the flowers use are made from filmo, some lilac juille and the message is from Papermania Clear Stamps Sentiments.
I really enjoyed making this card and I am sure the more I do the more adventurous I will become.
Sorry I have not added anything to my blog for a few days, I have been rather busy creating and making for other people, I have tried taking photo's tonight but they haven't come out very well, my photos work better using daylight!!! So I will add tomorrow morning.
Hope you have all had a good week, It's been rather hectic with getting back into the routine of school runs, going to work, house work, taking the boys here there and everywhere and all the other mundane things and making sure I have time to Craft that there are not enough hours in the day!! Something is going to have to go.......
Well I have created my first Tilda Card (Yippee) They are so adorable, I will need to find some challenges to enter, please let me know of any links.
Well I had better be off I can hear my pillow calling. Night Night Steffi
Hello I'm Steffi. I love crafting, I have been crafting for about 4 years now but I have really got into paper crafting over the last 8 months and my craft stock has just increased 10 fold (to my husbands dismay!!) " How can you get so excited about paper" He would say. He just doesn't understand.
