I Love You.............

Good evening all you lovely jubbly peeps. Hello to my new followers, welcome to my blog & thank you so sooo much for following me mmwah. I have been trying to have a sort out of my stamps to try & re-organise them, I have so many & they are here there & everywhere so I've decided to do a system putting them all in cd cases so I ordered 10 mounty cushion thingys from Emma's to mount all my stamps (I usually use the temp spray glue by CC) & I've just ordered more cd cases cus I've not got many left.......I already store my Magnolia's in cd cases & also all my nestie's except the xxl ones lol. So hubby went up argos today with Jake & brought a new cd unit to store them all in, it holds over 350 cds so I should have enough room......I hope anyway!!! The unit tho was a bargain it should of been £64.99 & its on sale for £ thats a bargain & they just had one left in my nearest it is. Anyway I'm gonna get on with my card. Now I had a new stamp quite a few weeks ago but it just got thrown in the tin along with all the other hAnglars.....yep its a hanglar stamp it seems soooo long since I've used 1 of these I've got loads sitting waiting........(I am now bowing my head in shame)

Isn't she a sweetheart....this I got from hAnglar in Sweden from their ebay store....their delivery really is sooo fast. I've coloured her with Promarkers |& Copics, I decided have a change & go for a pale complexion, not sure about it but I like to change things about or I get bored. Its good to expand your horizon so to speak lol.

The paper is Basic Grey 'Curio', which I won just before crimbo.....I was sooo chuffed about it its extremely rare I win anything....I'm not lucky much on that randomy thing lol but if I'm being honest I just like entering the challenges they open my mind to more crafting possibilities. The ribbon is from my stash 7 I folded & stapled it which I really like & will be doing again lol.

I loved creating the layers on this, I didnt have a lot of time to play tonight its been rather hectic to say the least today. Inside is decorated to compliment the front.

Card was made from A4 card. I get asked a lot how do I mail them? Well every card gets a box made for it unless its a flat one which is rare to be honest lol I always make a box to put the card in I just think it finishes the look off & looks nicely presented.....everything is handmade why stop at the
Well I'm away now to iron uniforms before I go in the shower. I will be catching up with your fabby blogs as well. I've also got this lot to mount on cushion & sort out.....wish me luck peeps :0(

I wont show you the rest.......the box on  the left just has all sorts in it that have not been inked up yet. Altho I will say there are some in there ready to go to my 1 year anniversary candy give away. I cant believe that in 2 months time I have been crafting a year its gone so fast but yet I've learnt so much from everyone in blogland........gosh a year ago today I didnt know what a promarker was never mind rubber stamps lol....but then I came across a blog in the March & that was it hook, line & sinker!!!
Anyway now I've bored you with my ramblings I better move my butt as I'm running rather late tonight.
Thank you so much for stopping by & visiting my little crafting space on the WWW I really do appreciate it soooo much.
Tatty bye see you all soon, come back tomorrow for my Crafts & Me card, I've learnt something new woo hoo lol, take care everyone.
Challenges I'm Entering......

Did you know it is a criminal offence to have uninked Hanglars? Tis, and the punishment is to send all your H&S stamps to ME, where I can love them and hug them and look after them! Gorgeous card hun, love that image, she's a cutie, and the BG papers work brilliantly. Hugs, Sxx

Gorge card, hunnybun! I love what you've done with the ribbon - might have a go at that meself!! I see everyone's been shocked at how many stamps you've got - well, they ain't seen mine!!?? I feel quite bad actually at the amount I've got and the amount that haven't been inked yet - I'm a bad stamp mummy!! It's like an addiction though, I can't stop buying them - or paper (not that I've got any bloody money!!) Have a good week. Hugs, Marie xx

KraftyKoolKat said...

What a gorgeous card sweetie. You always find such lovely papers and embellies. They wouldn't look as good though if I placed them on a card. Lol!!!


Meesh said...

Right nice card, etc... etc... See post I made t'other day about superlatives LOL!

Fantastic stamp collection, Vicky! I'm squinting trying to see what I can have... LOLZ!

Seriously though, the card is stunning, buddy. You have learned a lot in a year, eh?! You're a pro at card making and give a lot of inspiration to others. (Not me obvs, I'm perfect at just about everything... in my dreams!;)) Heh-heh.

Take care, missus! Say hello to Natalie from your blogging buddy :)

Meesh. XXX
