Halloween has come early this year...

Afternoon guys! Hope you're all well and enjoying your weekend! Just a super duper quick post but I figure a quick one is better than nothing;)

As some of you know I've been super duper busy as My Etsy Shop has now turned into a full time job-thanks to everyone who has given me their support and encouragement:)

So I wanted to pop on to show you some of the Halloween goodies I've been making!

I'll be back tomorrow to show you my belated Quixotic Challenge card:) Speaking of Quixotic Paperie have you checked out the fabulous New Arrivals? There's New Cosmo Cricket Pads, New Prima Paper Pads (0mg these are absolutely lush!), Echo Park Halloween Kit to name but a few of the goodies!

Thanks for stopping by!

If you've been paying attention or even if you've popped to my etsy shop even once you will have noticed how much I LOVE making Alice in Wonderland themed goodies! I also LOVE Halloween for obvious reasons;) so imagine how I almost wet myself when I saw the new Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland Papers!!! Utterly fabulous!!!

Inside cover:
I've been after the perfect little notebooks to alter for my shop and this definetly it-they're just ideal. I haven't even stamped on this book-just done some stitching and other little touches here and there but the paper is so awesome I couldn't bring myself to cover it!

Make sure you head over to the Quixotic Challenge blog to check out what the others girls have been altering-they're fabulous makes!

That's it from me guys...gonna go make the dinner. Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you might leave!

P.S. Should you wish to purchase this book you can get it at my etsy shop but it won't be around for long!

Birthday Wishes with Whimsy!

Just a real quick post today, am super busy but really wanted to show you this card that I made last week that's been waiting to be posted! This was actually a custom order for a lady in My Etsy Shop as she just loves the Whimsy Carousel horses (also available direct from Whimsy here)-who can blame her eh?!!

I used the yummy Olivia papers by Basic Grey and coloured the image, called 'Wings of Hope' with my copics. The glitter on the wings is the fabby Viva Decor glitter liner in Silver-my Stickles have become redundant now I've found this stuff!


Close up:~
I'm going to enter this over at Creative Card Crew (cute and girly), and dutch dare (anything goes).

Thanks for stopping by! See you tomorrow for the next Quixotic Challenge!

Quixotic Challenges DT and More

Morning everyone! Hope your week is going well so far! Am a bit late this week (what's new) but I'm going to show you my Quixotic Challenges DT card! The challenge this week was set by the gorgeous and super duper talented Elaine, and she picked a beach theme. I've had this Kraftin Kimmie beach babe stamp-Florence for ooo a good month now and she really deserved an outing so here she is:

Stamps~KK Florence and sentiment by Unity stamps
Medium~ Copic sketch
Embellies~ Retro punches, Prima E-Line Crystals for flower centre, Raffia Lace, buttons
Other~ Janome sewing machine, white card, kraft from Emma's Folksy Shop

I'm going to enter this card over at Creative Inspirations who are having an open theme this week.

Have you seen all the new yumminess over at Quixotic Paperie lately? Elaine has had sooo much fabulous new stuff in stock-I'm lovin these new Memory Box Papers

Aren't they lush? Fab quality as well! Also all the new CC Designs Halloween stamps have just arrived and since this offer is on this weekend it's a perfect time to buy some new stash: 10% off Paper Makeup Stamps, The Greeting Farm and all Tim Holtzstash! Only between now (6th August 2010) and Monday morning (9th August 2010), so be quick!

Am really sorry I've been such a bad blogger-I just can't seem to keep up with it right now as My Etsy Shop has really took off-all my hard work has paid off and now I'm super busy! In fact Leo will be going to Nursery school-he's have a settling in period next week- so that I can get my work done cos right now I'm staying up till 3am to get orders completed. It's really nice having my own official business though it's lots of work-I'm probably working like 60 hrs a week right now-but it's fun, and all mine:)

Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you might leave-I really appreciate each and everyone:)
