Ok so I don't usually do this but as my craft room is fairly tidy at the mo thought i best take a pic for Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday haha

It hasn't really changed much at all. In my pink container i have my new purchases which are waiting to be put away. My order from The Glitterpot came today :) i got 2 fizzy moon stamps and some papers.

Creative Inspiraions - Men's Card

Good Morning :)

I nearly forgot to schedule this post :s mind you it definatly wouldn't be the first time lol

Anyways this morning I am here to show you my DT card for Creative Inspirations where we have a challenge this week to make a mens card. I actually found this quite difficult as I don't have many papers and stamps suitable for men (This gave me an excuse to go on glitter pot and buy some papers and 2 stamps ohhh and 2 stamps from lili of the valley lol)

Heres my card:

The image is by Hanglar and coloured in using copic markers, the sentiment is by lili of the valley. Think the papers are K+Co. I have also used spellbinders circle and scalloped circle dies, tim holtz distressing tool, d'vine swirls cuttlebug embossing folder. Ohh and lace was off a local market stall :)

Thanks For Popping By :)

Sock Monkeys :)

Good Morning!!!
I have been busy crafting but not the usual card. I saw someone selling these sock monkeys on facebook and decided i wanted to try making some just for fun :) There are loads of tutorials on the web but i found this one on craftbits really helpful and easy to follow. Once you have made one though you wont need to look at the instructions again its that easy lol
I bought the socks, stuffing and googly eyes from Boyes.
Heres the first sock monkey I made with spotty socks, I think I made the tail plenty long enough though haha

The second sock monkey i made with boyes stripey socks and made a shorter tail lol

Then my sister decided she thought they were cute and she wanted one! These socks were from The Factory Shop.

Now a couple of group photos hehe

Hope you like my sock monkeys and thanks for taking a look :)

No Square Cards Allowed and CUPCAKES :)

Good Morning!!
This week over at creative inspirations we have a challenge of "No Square Cards Allowed!" the rest of the girls have used the sponsors images which a gorgeous but unfortunatly my printer is no good at printing images. I have made a scalloped circle easel card which i actually found really easy!!! and i think they look really cute!

I have used:
  • Popcorn bear stamp coloured with copic markers
  • Spellbinders circle and scalloped circle dies
  • Cardstock from The Paper Mill
  • Seam binding I got off Ebay

Now onto the baking i did at the weekend :) I was really inspired to get baking and decorate some cupcakes when i saw Tabs post of gorgeous cupcakes she made!!

I also recently bought a cupcake stand off ebay which i love, it looks sooooo cute :)

So I made Chocolate cupcakes which I iced swirls onto and also vanilla cupcakes with pink iced swirls :)

I also used my sisters mini cup cake maker which make really yummy cupcakes and I iced buttercream swirls on top.
I also made a victoria sponge cake, think i over did the icing sugar on top lol
I made half a dozen pink butterfly cakes in silicone cases but 2 of them didnt make the photo shoot as my Nan and Grandad wanted to sample some for me hehe

and I made half a dozen green iced buttefly cakes in silicone cases. i made these green as i didnt think dad would like taking pink butterfly cakes to work with him haha
