Glitter overload??

Good afternoon Crafty Peeps!
Firstly, I would like to say Hi & welcome to my new followers…thank you for joining me on my crafty journey! And, also thank you all for your lovely comments left – they are wonderful to read & surely boost my crafty self!

Not a bad day here in my neck of the woods – considering what the rest of the Country is dealing with weather wise.  We’ve had lots of rain, and a little flooding here & there but to be honest, I’ve not ventured out much lately so it could be much worse than I know.  From where I can see out my window the day looks beautiful hehe!

On to my little makes of today. …but before I show you what I’ve made, I just want to add this;  I think everyone is trying to be frugal with their pennies & to be honest, this time of year, leading up to Christmas, is a time for many to be pulling their hair out whilst looking at the family Christmas list…everything is sooo expensive & where have the days gone where a pressie wasn’t expected but a joy to receive what ever it was…*sigh*.  Well, this year we are  poor so everyone will be getting what I choose to make for them LOL!!!
Here’s my make:  


Now, I was super excited putting everything together to make this door hanger…and I think the excitement got the better of me and I ‘over cooked’ it a bit :/ It is for my 5 year old Niece, & she is uber - girlie-girlie with a - glittered - cherry - on - the - top,-little-Princess , So I really hope she sees pass her Auntie’s glitter  obsession enthusiasm!

Sugar Buttons card stock: - 
Bubblegum Candy Strip 900936
Hearts cut out from: Fairy Friend Sparkly paper craft toppers 900927
Flowers from crafty stash
Diamond Stickles 
Border trims (sorry can't remember offhand whose die it is)
Spellbinders D-lites die cut Fantastic flourish two
Spectrum Noir  PL3 pen from the Purples.

So, that's about it. - I'm off now to give my Son  a hair cut...short notice request (as usual) but he has an important date I really could not let him be seen with his hair as it is!  After that, back on to Door Hanger number two ( let's see if I learn to tone it down this time lol)
Whatever you are doing, where ever you are doing it, I hope its a good day for you!
Until next time,

Mandy :)

Scrumptious Sugar Buttons

Afternoon All!
I’m so rubbish at being constant with blogging – it’s not that I don’t have the time – more like, I don’t have the concentration to sit and blog.  Today is better, just a lot of pain but brain seems awake for a change!
So, on to my card, this cutie beauty has been made from the ‘Sugar Buttons by Kathryn’,  from Kanban.  Such a delightful kit full of cute yumminess…oh my word, really, it’s just so LOVELY!
The card above was a commissioned card and the recipient was so pleased with it, saying that it was ‘Spectacular – really special’.  That was pleasing to the ear I can tell you.  I must say, I so enjoyed making this, and there’s not many times I can finish a card and say to myself  ‘I really, REALLY like It’ – I always flaff about thinking does it need more, or have I added too much…but thankfully, this time I was SO happy with it.  It’s just a shame the pic doesn’t do it any justice at all.
If you would like to know the ingredients for this card, give me a shout & I will post the recipe on here…

Okay, that’s it for now.  I’m off to catch up around Blog-land…enjoy your crafty day peeps..

Healing Blues & Choccy browns!

Hi Peeps!

How did everyone’s Halloween turn out?  The kids from our street did well, and for 30 mins or so, our door was being knocked at, we were ‘scared’ at what faced us when we opened it…my hubby moaned at every kid telling them not to take all the sweets as he wanted some himself!!  Big kid! hehe

On to today’s card – this little beauty (well, to me it is) was made lovingly last night & it’s especially for my Mum – her last radiotherapy treatment is today & we want to let her know how proud we are of her & that she has walked another journey in battle.  It’s only a small acknowledgement of what she has been through. She has had a hard time – she hated the inconvenience of having to go every day for treatment and those 3 weeks she went were an eternity to her…but hey! IT’S OVER!!! YAY TO MY MUM!!!!

OK, I am going to enter this card into
 & the theme for this month’s challenge is:



And the project can be a card, scrapbook page of a 3D project & the prize is a Kanban goody bag!


What cha waiting for?….ENTER THE CHALLENGE!!

Until next time...

Mandy :)
