I made this card for my son's girlfriends birthday just before christmas. the stamp is a freebie from docrafts. I used her fave colour for the theme. Used some black and gold wide ribbon and some black gems from Meiflower crafts. The other swirl and corner stamp are from a clear stamp set I have had for a few years that hardly seen light of day. Some mirri card to finish.DP is papermania Purple capsule

Design your own Backng at Craft

Good morning hope you are all keeping well nearly weekend again. Today is Thursday and now it is time for another challenge at CRAFT and I have to tell you I nearly ran for the hill when Jo came up with
totally out of my comfort zone but hey when I got to it I kind of enjoyed it.
Well we have another fab set of sponsors for this challenge that have all been very generous

I have used a image from Saturated Canary and have used shades of Blue for my card.
sorry about the dark picture but light is so bad one day i will get a good daylight lamp. I have coloured the image with my promarkers. The sentiment is a whimsy stamp. Ribbon is from my stash. Card is from Papermill. Now my backing paper is made by stamping in various inkpads with a set of very tiny stamps. The paper behind the image is made with distress inks I dab it onto a non stick sheet and then sprayed water and then placed my paper onto it. I then dried my paper with a heat gun. I thought it looked a bit like the rain we have been having lately. Added a blue gem to the sentiment and a few drop gems. 
Well what do you think of my backing paper. Dont forget that the rest of the team has made some fab creations so check them out for more inspiration.
Well thanks for joining me today and having a peep at my little creation. I guess sometimes it is good to be pushed outside your comfort zone.
Hope to see you over at the blog. Catch you tomorrow with our 1st Crafty Catz challenge of the new year and our new gdt jills creation

Tiime to Celebrate

Good Morning and HAPPY NEW YEAR I hope this will be a good one for you. Did you have a busy one or a quiet one like me. I spent it with my son and his girlfriend eating and watching a film promptly followed by all 3 of us falling asleep well guess that means we where relaxed. We all woke just before the clock at midnight to welcome it in.
Now as it is Wednesday that can only mean that it is CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS time and for our 1st challenge of the year it could only be CELEBRATIONS this could be any celebration.
This challenge also see our new DT's join us but sadly this is the last one for one of our teamies Rebakah we wish her well and hope to see her joining us in a few challenges along the way.
Our sponsor for this challenge is the fab digital company STAMP FAIRY with a $10 gift certificate
Now we where very lucky to have been given some images to play with and i picked this cutie called Mimi stars 4

DP is Papermania from many moons agao. Flower is made from several flat flowers and a wild orchid rose coloured with distress ink. Memory box die, die cut sticker sentiment, doily from the range, M.S punch with ribbon along the centre, image coloured with my promarkers. Dont normally do black hair but fairly happy with it although think i still need some practise. I have kept it in a Lilac theme too. Oh and of course some glitter for the stars.
Well now it is over to you we would love to see you over there and as it is still raining here in Manchester best stay in and do some crafting.
