Craft Sale

I'm almost embarrassed at how long it has been since I blogged on here but I haven't crafted since my marriage broke down and I moved house. Accordingly I am selling my craft stash.

A lot of the stamps are quite old and therefore maybe retired so it's your chance to pick up a bargain as well as picking up some hard to come by stamps. I am selling them on ebay and my ID is craftybeckie. I'm also selling some of my tools and fimo bits n pieces and it's taking an age to photgraph it all so I will be listing for some time I think.

Anyway, I hope you are all well and please spread the word about my sale.

Luv n hugs

Business Sale - Testing the water.

Hi All.

I'm sorry I haven't blogged for some time, but things have been quite hectic over recent months. Anyway, the reason for this post is to let you know that I am thinking of selling my rubber business. If you know of a craft shop wanting to expand, or you are someone who is looking to perhaps start up with an already established business please contact me at

Hope everyone is well.

I See Candy!!!!!

Hi everyone

I am so sorry that I have been such a bad blogger of late. To be perfectly honest I have so much going on I have barely made a card for weeks. I think I am back in the swing of it though and will hopefully have some cards to share shortly.

Anyway, I was just doing a bit of blog hopping and found the most delish candy in the form of Martha Stewart punches and blooms from Wild Orchid Crafts. Check them out here at Jacqui's blog. While you are there have a nosey around her cards. They are just gorgeous.

Enjoy your weekend and I'll be in touch soon.

Father's Day Times 3

Good afternoon and how are everyone's preparations for tomorrow going? I have to make 3 Father's Day cards every year and here are my 3 for this year.

The first is for my FIL. The papers are Foundations from Creative Expressions. They were featured on a show on Creat & Craft earlier in the week. The sentiment is from a Popcorn the Bear stamp set and the Nautical stamps are one stamp separated but I can't remember who the manufacturer is. If you are interested email me and I will find out. I coloured the images with Distrss Inks

The second is hubby's card off the boys. It's Popcorn the Bear coloured with Twinks. I used the co-ordinating papers from the CD.

Last and not least is my Dad's card. I am not at all pleased with this and was almost embarrassed to send it to him. The picture is from one of the Creative Expressions Create-A-Scene stamp plates. I used Distress Inks to stamp it. The card shape is from one of the Keepsake boards.

This week, my store is sponsoring Crafty Catz Challenge blog. The theme is shaped cards and the above card is my GDT work. Oh well, better luck next time guys! I hope you like the prize I have donated.

I would also like to enter one or all of these cards into the One Stop Craft Challenge, which is One For the Boys.

OK, off to play with some new stamps and some Cosmic Shimmer..........

Have a good weekend.

MAWTT Sponsor & Some News

Good afternoon. Well it's brighter today with no rain but the Summer seems to have left us for now. Just as I was getting used to it too!

This week my store is sponsoring Moving Along with the Times. They asked me to be GDT this week and this is my card.

No special technique, just a bit of d├ęcoupage. This is Popcorn and Coconut from the Popcorn Romance CD. I almost didn't get this one made in time. It's my SIL's wedding anniversary today and nearly forgot.

Now, anyone following my blog may have noticed that there have not been many entries recently. I am stuggling for time to craft with working 2 part time jobs, and running my online store, oh and running a house. The latter is looking very neglected....................more so than usual. Accordingly, I will not be able blog much let alone craft for a while.

My mojo has up and left me and I think I need a wee break. My store is sponsoring several challenge blogs over the coming weeks and I will of course, let you know which ones and when, with perhaps a card or two along the way. So, please forgive me if I appear to go AWOL.

In the meantime, please check out the MAWTT challenge blog and see what you can do with Clare's sketch.

Last Papertake Weekly GDT Card

This is my last week on the Papertake Weekly Design Team. Next week a new GDT take over.

Dawny has provided us with another fabby sketch and the added twist is to use Lilac and/or Lemon in honour of my store sponsoring the challenge this week.

I have used a Sarah Kay image coloured with Promarkers and used 2 Spellbinders sets. The border is from the In Spades Pendant set. I edged the image with Dusty Concorde Distress Ink. I have no idea what make the main backing sheet is but the border is cut from a Foundations set which will soon be available from Creative Expressions. The Cherry Blossom are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I have coloured them with a Big & Juicy Inkpad so that they match my colour scheme.

Do head on over to the PTW blog to see what the DT have done with this sketch and to see what my store is offering as a prize.

Have a good evening.

There goes the sun!

I'm sorry this is quite late in the day, but I've been fighting a migraine since I came home from work. I think I am winning!

Today is the start of a new Papertake Weekly challenge. Dawny sets the challenges a few weeks in advance and thought that as it's the 1st June, Summer would be underway. Well, it was for a while, wasn't it? The theme this week is Summer Fun and doesn't Lacie look like she's having oodles of fun.

She's a Digital Pencil Too image by Mo and I think she is gorgeous. The papers are Funky Hands from the Funky Seasons CD. The ribbon is from my stash, but I think it's HOTP and the little flip flop charm is also from my stash. I coloured her with Promarkers.

So, hop on over and see what the rest of the DT have done. Have a good evening.
