Is it Coffee Time

Well, it's been stressful the last couple of days with a second Windows Update making my computer crash. I spent about 3 hours last night waiting for Auto Repair to work with no luck, so had to leave computer on all night and woke this morning to hubby telling me the computer was on with a big blue screen etc. So back to trying to work it out and finally after another couple of hours it's finally decided to play nice. I'm lucky, another friend had the same problem but didn't get any repair screen. It's cost her hundreds of dollars and several days without a computer. Windows should be responsible for all the expense incurred by probably lots of people with this issue. Anyway.... that's enough ranting. Now onto my reason for my post today!
It's challenge time at Crafting from the Heart (and I'm late because of the above!!!)The theme is as usual Anything Goes and our sponsor is Createful Heart Digis.

Lots of Flowers

Challenge time at Get Creative Challenges and this time around our sponsors are, KNITTY KITTY DIGIS, QKR STAMPEDE, WINK WINK INK and the theme is "Lots of Flowers" I'm really a bit plain when it comes to card making so adding flowers is always a challenge for me. I used a partial section of a stamp for my sentiment and it picked up a small amount of ink in a couple of places so to my horror I had to add masses of bling to cover up a couple of small spots. It was the only thing I could do after already having everything else ready on the card. So.... if you follow my posts you will know all this extra embellishment is not my usual thing.
Here is what I ended up with...... I also tried a new fold using a die cut to create it.


Recipe: 
White card from stash, SU Tempting Turquoise cardstock and SU Real Red cardstock
DP is  from 15cmx15cm paper pad from The Craft Stall
Image is from QKR Stampede - In Love Digital Image
Sentiment from a magazine freebie set of stamps - Hummingbird Symphony
Dies - Nestie Labels Eight, Nestie - Standard circles and Scalloped Circle
Punch - MS leaf punch
Flowers from Little Birdie and assorted ones from stash
Bling - Stash
Copic Markers
Memento Tuxedo Black inkpad
D/S tape roller and foam dots, tacky glue

Come on over to the challenge blog and enter something of your own. We would love to see it.
Thanks for stopping and please leave me a comment if you have time.

Challenge 202 at Crafting From The Heart

Running a bit late today, decided to rummage through some boxes in the craft room trying to cull some of my hoarded stash! I don't do much in the way of scrapbooking now so have decided to get rid of albums and a lot of stickers that I won't use on my cards.
So...... finally have sat myself down in front of the computer to add this post.
Our challenges are always Anything Goes and this one is Just for Fun as there is no sponsor. That means we get to use anything we want so I've made a card with three  new stamp sets I bought a few months ago and hadn't christened yet. It was actually a kit that Uniquely Creative put out every two months I think, but I've done my own design. It contains one stamp set, the stencil and the die and then you can buy the add on products which I have done to get the extra stamps.
Here is my make.......

Recipe:
SU Pacific Point cardstock for the basecard and sentiment mattes
White card from stash
Background made with a stencil from Uniquely Creative - Bubbles
Die - Sea Plants ~ Uniquely Creative
Stamps are also Uniquely Creative ~ Mermaid Kisses, Snorkel Pals and Wish Upon a Starfish
Sentiment from the Mermaid Kisses set
Copic Markers
SU Pacific Point inkpad and Memento Tuxedo Black inkpad
D/S tape roller

Well, am off to have a coffee and a very small play at my craft table before I pack up my bag for some crafting with a friend tomorrow.
Hope to see you popping in and joining the challenge, check out my fellow team mates' creations and the other entries too. It's wonderful to see the fantastic makes that everyone comes up with.
Thanks for stopping by,
Hugs, Sandy
