Still feeling BOLD!

Well it looks like I'm still feeling loud this morning!  Efficient too as I've cracked straight on with today's Mojo Monday sketch.  As soon as I saw it I knew exactly the papers to use.  They're from K&Co called Faded China.  I love these papers but do struggle using them. and this for me waas the perfect sketch to show them off.  I love a good start to the week :-)

So I'll join in with a few challenges:

AAACards - Word Play

Amusing Challenges - Anything Goes
Come and Get It - Clear it Out/Use Stash (Paper, had it for about 7years!)
Mojo Monday - Sketch
Robyn's Fetish - Square or Rectangle

Who got up to see the lunar eclipse/blood moon this morning then? I did, despite OH thinking I am nuts lol!  I only meant to get up at 2, have a look and return to bed.  Was so enjoying it, I stayed up until 4!  It was pretty amazing and although I'm tired today, I'm very glad I did.

Thanks for dropping by, always a pleasure to read your comments,

SS - A non white base...and a cow

You know some days you just feel pale and delicate?  Then some days you just feel in your face, here I am, loud?  I was feeling loud this morning!

I created it for this week's Sweet Stampin' challenge where we've come up with a corker for you...using a non white base.  Because let's face it, white is far too easy to reach for.  Now I'm doubly proud because this uses up my last remaining card base in this particular colour.  No, I've no idea why I bought card bases in this shade either!

I pulled out this fab Penny Black cow who looks like she knows how to have a good time to go with my in your face colour combo, teamed those with the sketch from Sketch Saturday et voila!

So I'm playing along with:

Crafting with Friends 7 - Anything Goes
Crafty Calendar - Anything Goes
Di's Digi Designs - Animals acting Human!
Penny Black & More - Anything Goes
Simply Papercrafts 14 - Anything Goe
Sketch Saturday - Sketch

Now, if you're really up for a challenge, we'll see you over at Sweet Stampin'.

Happy Weekend folks,

Major Mojo Monday!

An unusual occurence today....a post from me that isn't a DT post.  It's a completely random, just because, no particular reason post!

Also a not so unusual occurence's raining.  Clearly brightening up the day was in my mind when I picked the colours.

I was inspired by the Mojo Monday sketch so I'm entering over there with thanks for kicking my butt after a totally uninspired weekend!

Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes + Sentiment
Crafty Catz - Special Occasion

SS - Make a Scene

Hey there!  I'm back after my Summer celebrations, I turned 21....again and spent it in varying parts of the U.K. catching up with lots of wonderful people.  But now I'm firmly back to reality and making a vain attempt to catch up with everything that's been neglected (apart from the ironing!), starting with this week's Sweet Stampin' challenge to Make a Scene.

This is a very inky fingers card to make but so much fun.  Although it can be hard to judge when enough is enough ink, I hope I have got it about right.  I like it, which is good enough for me.

There are numerous Stampin' Up inks used here (too many to mention) a couple of tree stamps & some post it notes.

I'm going to enter in to the following challenges & then see if I can carry on catching up:

Crafting with friends - Anything Goes
Crafty Calendar - Anything Goes
Creative Fingers 92 - Anything Goes
Creative Moments - Anything Goes (optional use a sentiment, which I haven't)
Simply Papercrafts - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for dropping by my little blog, it's lovely to hear from you
