New Stash

Hi again 

2nd post of today that is not a DT card, my mojo must be back after all the xmas cards, 

Its my birthday on Thursday and since I was about 12 or 13 I have been shopping with my Mum, sister and Grandma in the sales for clothes, Saturday was my day to shop, unfortunately my Grandma is no longer able to cope with this huge shopping trip as she is 93, but my 11 year old  daughter came along this year, as she had some Christmas money to spend, we all had great fun and got lots of new clothes, but as there is now a hobby craft in York  which I had to go in!!!! so I also got some craft things, what more could a girl ask for clothes, shoes and craft items.

I decided to try out the new range from docrafts chronology range, so with the free stamps from the creativity magazine and the paper pack and gears embossing folder, I made this card, also playing with my distress inks, perfect pearls,  Tim Holtz  gears dies and a new Sizzix die and stamp set 'Postage stamps'.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges 
craft your passion- vintage/shabby chic
creative creations- anything goes

I have used  the 'Friendship' from volume 5, coloured in with promarkers, the card is a tent card which is my first attempt at this type of card. I have used cricut cuts from create a critter (branch) and paper dolls dress up (grass) papers are raspberry roads

Favouirte Five of 2012

Hi all 

Happy New Year this is my first post of 2013,

 I came across Debby's blog ( A scrap Journey) 
yesterday, she has blog candy and to enter you have to show of your five Favorite cards of 2012, think this is fab idea.

 when I started looking through my pictures, to choose my top five  I was shocked on how many cards I have made this year, and I only started my blog in March, and I am so pleased I did as I have had so much inspiration from fellow bloggers and its so much fun entering challenges and I am thankful to be on 4 great design teams.

Interactive Card
This card was a DT card with a theme that I never thought I could follow, but I thought outside the box and I was pleased with the result, and also its a saturated canary image which I have become obsessed with.

I made this card for my best friends daughter, which went down a storm she loved it, and one of the first Saturated Canary's images I owned, and I was lucky enough to win it aswell

30th Birthday
My little sister turned 30 this year and I made this card to incorporate all the things she loves in life, I had such fun thinking and making this card.

I really was inspired this year to do a steampunk card never done one before, didn't even know what it was, until I started blogging I have made 3 this year but this is my Fav

I made this card for my husband as he is a huge Mario fan, he loved it was so pleased he put it straight on facebook for his retro gaming friends!!!!!

Well thats my top five, so looking forward to even more card making this year, 

also just wanted to say thanks to all my followers, 

Lots of hugs Vicky
