Do you fancy feeling festive .......

Happy Sunday evening ......

I hope you've enjoyed the weekend. 
Today sees the start of the Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge

As always the theme is Anything Goes, with this month's optional twist ..... Hearts

I've used this cute little stamp from the ever growing mountain of NBUS in my craft room (Never Before Used Stuff!) 

This cute little guy is from Unity Stamps ..... I'm sorry I can't give you the name of the stamp as it's currently sat somewhere in this mountain of stash, in what is going to be my new craft room ...... I'm not looking forward to sorting all that lot out ........ and that's not all of it!! 

Anyway ...... he's been stamped onto white card, using black versafine ink and then I add a touch of colour with ZIG markers

A touch of fine crystal glitter to add a bit of sparkle

And a sprinkling of Chunky White Embossing Powder to give the look of falling snow

A  simple sentiment to finish off .....

And a little something on the inside ......

Our challenge winner will receive a $20 Gift Certificate to spend in the HLS store  and ....... if the winner has used Happy Little Stampers stamps on their project then the prize will be doubled!!

Happy stamping folks!

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day and a have a great week.

We've been moving boxes all weekend ....... I'm sick of looking at bubble wrap and packing tape! Never mind, only one more day to go before the removal men arrive on Tuesday.
For now though, I have a date with a  G&T and a  large bag of popcorn ..... I've earned it!

Until next time .....

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas .......

Happy Friday folks ......

Well I didn't expect to be waking up to snow this morning ......

Roads are closed and full of abandoned cars apparently, the mountain is full of snow, schools are closed, and there's no cabs or buses!  Guess I'm staying in the craft room today.  Although the little man is here, so if this keeps up I think a snowman will be on the to do list!

I hope it doesn't get any worse ..... I have a workshop planned tomorrow!!!

Before all that though it's time to remind you about this month's Craft Stamper Challenge

The theme is Anything Goes .... as long as there's rubber stamping on your project somewhere.

It's all about Christmas in the craft room at the moment.  There's glitter everywhere ...... and I mean everywhere, not just in the craft room ......  I love it!!

I've got a Christmas card for you today ..... with a little something extra.

Very CAS in design.   Snowflakes stamped at the top of the card in silver metallic ink, then I've stamped one of the new Tim Holtz snowflakes over the top and heat embossed in gold (I love these new designs .... they're so delicate)

The stylish reindeer is from a stamp set by Unity Stamps, and he's been simply stamped and heat embossed in gold to match the snowflake (I did use my MISTI to stamp him a couple of times to make sure I had enough ink on him before I embossed)

A festive sentiment and a few splatters of gold and silver ink finish off the design

Now for the magic ...... see the hole at the end of the reindeer's nose, well it's there for a reason.   If you press gently on the sentiment, this happens .....

I love it!!!
It's got a little copper tape circuit underneath, with a battery and a tiny red LED light ...... they're called Chibitronics I think, and they're so much fun.  When you press on the sentiment it completes the circuit and lights the bulb .... clever eh!
This was something we covered on the HLS Craft Retreat I was on a few weeks ago and I must say, I will be doing this again.

Our sponsor this month is ........ Stampin Unicorn from Polkadoodles
and there's a great prize for the challenge winner.  A fabulous THREE stamp sets and two gorgeous paper packs .....

Check out the Craft Stamper Blog for full details and you'll also find lots more inspiration on there from the rest of the Design Team.

Speaking of the DT, we've grown a little over the last week.  There's some very talented new Designers joining in January and, I'm proud to say I'm going to be part of this fabulous team for another year.

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day and have a lovely weekend.
And if you've got any of this snow that's falling ....... stay safe and warm.

Cheerio until next time .....

Time to fly ........

Happy Thursday folks!

I'm a bit early this morning .... the sun's not even up yet!

It's time to find my wings again ........ well, they actually belong to Citywing, but you know what I mean.  I'm off on one of these little babies again, flying across to the UK for a few days. That's the reason for the early start!

First stop when I get over there, is a spot of craft retail therapy over at Event City in Manchester with my best buddy.   Yes, I'm off to the Stitching, Sewing, and Hobbycrafts Show  today, and I have a list ..... and room in the suitcase ..... whoo hoo!!!  Could be expensive!
No doubt there'll be time for coffee and cake too, and a good old catch up with some friends while we're there.  It's going to be a good day!

I eventually got everything finished yesterday, before I closed the old craft room door (no thanks to old Mojo who's gone AWOL!) ..... I even left my workdesk tidy!

One of the jobs on the list was my challenge entry for this weeks Less is More.
It's a Colour Week and we have a yummy combination to work with .....


After Eights anyone?!

I've stamped the image using a brown Archival ink, that's the chocolate bit .... and the mint part is obviously her dress

How cute is she?!!  The stamps are by Phyllis Harris for Unity Stamp Company .... I've recently got my hands on a few of her designs ... I love them!!

The sentiment was also stamped in  mint green

And I used the colour combo on the inside too .....

Sorry, but I must dash ..... I've got a plane to catch!

Thanks for popping by .... enjoy the rest of your day

Cheerio until next time
