Incase youre baffled by the title let me explain before i launch into the pictures etc :)
3 - more cards completed for challenges....
99 - followers since 14th Jan (just over a month - how fab is that, thank you all so much!! We are almost at 400!! eek!!)
100 - pennies, yep yet more bargains from the Poundshop!!
Lets start with the 3 :)
This first card is for both the Cuttlebug Sewing Challenge this week on their blog and also for the Basic Grey Challenge Blog where we had to use Maroon, Lemon and Pink. I used Basic Grey Lemonade papers (seriously these are so delicious i hate to use them but hate not to if that makes sense!! lol) I glossy accented the hearts and since my sister has my sewing machine i poked holes all around the card and sentiment block etc and then drew the stitching (cheating i know but they did say it would be accepted) :)
Second card is for the Stampin For the Weekend Blog and Caardvarks blog too where we were challenged to use stickers (they are chipboard but still stickers so i hope they count) - i have wanted to use this little toaster sticker forever and never really had the chance! I thought i had a 'popping up to say hello' type sentiment but i didnt so i went with the Look Whos New stamp - get it.....the toast just popped out! lol
The third card is for the Sketch Saturday blog and i love this elephant from Hero Arts - ive used him so many times and i think fastening the little cotton around his nose means this sentiment fit perfectly :)I glittered his ear and used a Martha Steward punch on the bottom of the red column. Nesties were used to create the oval and oval scallop.
Thanks to all the challenge blogs for keeping me motivated and all the inspiration you provide :)
Onto my bargains! The beloved Poundshop has struck again.....dont you love it when you walk around and spot goodies that have never been in before!?! I went down the kitchen aisle and found these fab sets of tins - im thinking of using them to keep my pens and tools etc in. Then down the craft/diy aisle and i found these gorgeous tubes of pencils - both the pencils and tube are such a fab blank canvas to stamp onto or cover with paper etc and personalise for presents - im going to get dh to take me back into town (i know, i know im taking it easy honestly) and if need be carry me into the store so i can get some more! lol
Thanks for the concern yesterday, i am so much better today, up and about and even enjoyed doing some light housework this morning! Its amazing how much you appreciate the little things more after a day of not being able to move!
Im going to get some bits together and we will have another giveaway once i hit 400 followers - im thinking some goodies including the pencil pot and tins above and some other little bargain finds i happen to see ;)
