More New Rubba...!

I bought my second Lilli of the Valley stamp whilst I was at the NEC and managed to make a car today, in between decorating eggs with my 2 young Nieces ( they give me 24 hours notice and expect me to have everything they need and get upset when I don't).....I'm having no more kids....Lol...!
I also used some stamped images of Popcorn bear that I had stamped a while ago on 2 other cards. I have not added any text on these 2 cards as i'm not sure what they will be used for just yet...

I have used distress inks and inkadinks on the cards. When i get some natural daylight tomorrow I may add a touch of h2os to them too..
I may be back in a day or two with more stuff... So keep taking a peek..

Mini Magic...

I just love the mini magnolias and there was one that i did not buy and wish I had.. It was in my hand several times but it can wait until november. It was Edwin as a cook sat down. I am kicking myself though now...Lol..
I have found my Mojo too and made a few cards since saturday. I was dead chuffed last night when I managed to get the mini tilda to sit on the bed. the first one she was just not right but usable but this was my second attempt and "spot on" i don't think I could get it much better.
The fairy stamp is one I bought from a friend as she had bought 2 by mistake (on the same day too. She is getting on a bit...).
The Tilda I have sat up a tree is made with a stamp that normaly has an Owl sat on the branch...
I think there is so much you can do with the Mini stamps and all the other stamps in your stash..
I'm looking forward to going back to the NEC to buy more.... i best get saving now though..

Covered in ink..

Well I have been to the NEC at Birmingham today with my son, Vicky and baby Emily...
I met a few strange people there I can tell you... You may know one or two of them...Lol..
It was nice to meet up with a couple of friends from Paper Craft Planet Jayne and Wynneth and we met at the best place....on the Magnolia stand of course, although I did not get to have a coffee with them this time I hope to do so in November if I get back again.. It was so busy I did not think it would be that busy so it may be the sunday next time.!
We only spent about 2.5 -3 hours there as I know Vicky is going out tonight and I'm not the best person to travel..

I have already made a card with the mini magnolias that I bought and had not taken a photo of my stash for you so picked up my stash and the card and not realised I had spilt a drop of ink on my desk hence the ink on the magnolia packets.
I bought a House Mouse stamp too and then found a new craft to try with paper glue and few hearts shapes made of wood I will blog them properly another day when I get to play sometime in the week..
There is also a wooden pencil box and a money box for me to work some magic on too.. I need some gesso too but there are road works near the shops that I can buy it from locally so it can wait a while i'm in no rush. I also bought a new 12x12 scrapbook as did Vicky so that we can do some for Emilys pictures as she grows...
Hope you all had a wonderful day too..........

Scrabby Bits....

Hi There,
I have been scrapping again (no not fighting..!) Scrapbooking...!
The photos are of 2 of my granddaughter, one from my son and one from Georges son.

The pink Pj page is of myself and Our Emily and the second page is of Our Charlotte or Lottie..
I love the turquoise in the bib so wanted to use that as the main colour and the large flower is great as you can make them as big or as small as you need. There is however space on one of the pages for me to do some sort of text, I may need some words from mum or dad for this...
The photos are great as there were so many taken in a short space of time. I do think she got a little bored due to the big Yawn she did... Lol..

We need to take and print our more of Emily and it looks like I will get the chance whilst helping out when mum goes back to work soon... If and when i'm needed the camera will be by my side although a new one is needed so I best start saving.

I will be back with more pages soon as my cards are on the back burner for now.. I will do more when I can find my MOJO again...

Come back soon but leave some love too so I know you have been over to look...

Melt Pot and Grunge paper....

Less than 24 hours and i'm back again...
I promise that I would put some pictures on for Marie in Canada a while ago and then I never got around to it. Sorry Marie....!
So as well as the grunge paper flowers on the boxes I have used my melt pot....and wanted to show you the flower I made first and just love it....
The first box is the blue one and I wanted to keep it plain. There is a bit of a flaw in it but i'm not saying what but it is the melt pot flower that I love. The basic shape is one from a mega bag of shapes I bought from Craft Work Cards based here in Leeds and the middle is an old button that I bought from the market on the East coast of the UK and thought it was a perfect match. the side view is just to show that I try and thread ribbon around just to keep the box together a little as the sides kept coming unstuck using DS tape, on the cream box I managed to use eyelets..

The cream box was the one I made after watching Tim Holtz. It is not fantastic but I like it. The flower was my first one made with his grunge paper. The big bold beads that I bought from the same market on the east coast are wonderful and knew I would find a use for them as I just bought them because they were so nice... What are we like....Lol..

I have also finished my wedding card but will put it here in the next few days..

Get your melt pot out and use it it is so much fun, but I now want more colours ;o)
I would also love some of the TH sizzix flower dies.... My list gets longer every hour...

Coices, choices... !

I was very excited yesterday as I had 2 cards in my door which meant 2 parcels to collect although one is too far away and will be redelivered on Thursday now.
I have been to collect one today and was even more excited as it contained my new magnolias and some more Tim Holtz grungepaper and more of his goodies which means the parcel on Thursday will contain a set of his inks that I got on ebay... Bargain...!

I have had a chance to play with my stamps and have made a card that is on the magnolia group on PCP (i'm not sure about it but it is made now and the wedding card that I have started here but not sure which flowers to use...
I don't think I want an over loaded card just a minimalistic one. I may lok at it again after tea or tomorrow. Which flowers would you use???
I am looking forward to doing more on the project I started to email to magnolia hoping it will get into one of their mags... You will just have to wait and see but it is Big.... My son saw it today and could not believe what he had seen and thought it was beautiful but I think he his bias.... Lol

well I best make tea..

Shrink Plastic

I'm watching the tv and they are using shrink plastic which I love to use....
I never use my heat gun though as I tend to use it on a day when I have the oven on ...Lol...!

The cards I have made this week are are mostly made without any stamping other than 1 of them..
I just wanted a change... I have also used my melt pot at long last but I will show pictures of that some time in the week...

my granddaughter is coming along now too and is filling out that much I may not be able to pick her up that much soooon ;o( so i'm making the most of it when ever she is here. I took her to meet her great great aunt this week...
Well i'm missing all the shrink plastic tips so I will leave you to whatever wonderful creations you are making and see you sooooon.
