That's Crafty! challenge - Keep it simple

Hi everyone,

It's time for another fortnightly challenge over at That's Crafty! with the theme of: Keep it simple.

Now don't be scared by this one as we just want to see your clean and simple creations, so the less embellishments etc the better.

Join in and you could win this


If you saw the Hochanda shows last Friday then you'll know about all the exciting new goodies made by That's Crafty! that you could get ;)

So, for my creation I used this gorgeous stamp set from Rubber Dance designed by Melina who is also on our DT and my beloved Zig pens of course.





Rubber Dance stamps, Zig clean colour pens, Tim Holtz sentiment.

I'm so excited to announce that the lovely Bibi, of Rubber Dance fame, is having a new stamps launch today and guess what......yes I have a new stamp set out too which I'm absolutely thrilled about.

Here it is:



Isn't that little birdie the sweetest?! I can see him being used on everything...hope the cats don't fall asleep for too long then ha ha.

Please pop on over to the Rubber Dance blog where you can see the samples for my new stamp set and you can have a nose at the other new ones too which I can tell you are must haves also.......you can never have too many stamps can you ;)







Oh and because Bibi is such a generous lady, she always likes to offer a 20% discount for a whole week on the new stamps, so pop along here  to the Rubber Dance shop and grab yourself a total bargain.



Hope you like my new set as much as I enjoyed drawing and creating fun things with it.

Competition winners

Hi everyone,

Well we now have 3 lucky winners of my new designs for Rubber Dance although the draw didn't quite go according to plan as you'll see from the following photos....never work with kids and animals they say for a very good reason!!!


yay we're getting some serious treats!

what the heck is this?!

Fred, come quickly, something is not right

Oooh this doesn't look good 

Hey Saff I can see right through your ear

shall we try to eat this?

it's just not doing it for me

it might look better from this angle though

Nope not doing it for me either

I'm going in a minute...

Ah she's put real treats in there now

Hey don't forget to share Miss Greedy

Wow there'll be none left!

Didn't want any anyway....stupid game

Here's the winners....picked by human hand!!





So as you can see it don't go according to plan so I had to put my own paw/hand in, swirl the paper around and pick out the winners myself. Even hiding treats in the bowl didn't tempt them....they're now officially sacked from name picking duties in the future.

Susi
Gail (Iona Bunny)
Julie

Congrats to you all and I think the best way to do this is that I'll PM you via FB to get your details as that'll be quicker I think.

Please share what you've created with the stamps too, I'd love to see ;)

Thanks everyone for all your lovely comments on my stamps and I'm sure there'll be more chances in the future to enter once again :)

Have a nice weekend

GIVEAWAY!!!

COMPETITION NOW CLOSED



STICKY POST - COMPETITION ENDS FRIDAY 26TH MAY 2017

Hi everyone,

To celebrate my excitement at designing two sets of stamps for the lovely Bibi, owner and gorgeous lady at Rubber Dance, I thought I'd share some of my excitement with you all in the form of a giveaway.

There were 2 bunnies and 2 poodles to giveaway BUT one of the naughty little bunnies hopped away to his new home so now I have the one bunny left and he's feeling a bit lonely so needs a good home. 


Here's what's up for grabs:


 One Bunny

Two Poodles





Here's the details:

Leave me a comment, only on this post, so I know who's interested.

Let me know which stamp set you'd prefer but of course it will come down to pot luck, I'll try to match the new owner with their preferred choice, if possible.

The competition is open to anyone anywhere in the world.

Make sure I can contact you to let you know you've won....most important.

You must be / become a follower of my blog and I'd love for you to share this on Facebook, Instagram etc.

The draw will be made on Friday 26th May by one of my lovely Ragdoll cat assistants, probably this little fella
......no bribery of treats will be entered into, he's completely impartial  ;)


Oh and good luck everyone :)



Have a great weekend everyone

That's Crafty! challenge - Feline Fine

Hi everyone,

We have a new challenge over at That's Crafty! and the theme for this fortnight is: Feline Fine.

Join in and you could be in with a chance of winning this

to spend on goodies in the shop.....let me tell you a little secret....there's some really cool new stuff coming in the next couple of weeks so well worth winning ;)


Of course cats are my very favourite thing in the whole world but the problem was choosing which cat stamp as I have quite a few including one of my own! I decided on a Katzelkraft one as they remain my favourite set of cat stamps.

That's Crafty! challenge - Back to Black

Hi everyone,

This fortnight's challenge over at That's Crafty! has the theme: Back to Black.

We'd love to see a lot of black used in your creations. Join in and you could be in with a chance of winning this


just in time to buy my new Deep Sea Divas' stamps....just saying ;)

I love the theme of this challenge as I'm a big fan of creating on black backgrounds as they're so dramatic. For my card I used a new flower stamp I hand carved and coloured in with Zig pens and then doodled with a white Posca pen, adding A Tim Holtz sentiment.

Pop on over and see what my lovely teamies have created too, loads of inspiration there :)
