Aspire Crafts

Just a quick note

Today's Aspire Crafts on Create and Craft times have changed to 12pm and now 4pm so

one hour earlier than scheduled....
Don't forget to get those emails in .......

Bits and pieces

There is still time to enter the challenge over on Kathy's Waffle Sketch File using another one of Kathy's brilliant sketches. Just a pointer to something you may or may not know, if you get stuck for some inspiration, all of the sketches will still be on the Sketch file and you should be able to access them by clicking on the names in the right hand column of the blog.

First the sketch
and now, my cards

The sketches are free to use, and but please, when you use them remember to give the Sketch File the credit and add a link back to it.

Thanks again xx

What's on your Workdesk Wednesday

Good morning everyone, writing this post this morning is very distracting as I have five burley men erecting scaffolding so they can do some work for us! (and breathe ;))

So my photo today is for the lovely lady Julia who runs the Stamping Ground blog and WOYWW. She made a comment about my desk... 

"I don't get it - I publish my mess weekly and yet you say it's too embarrassing for you - now is that you have higher standards or I've no pride?!!" this week I'm going to show her what mess really is lol 

and yes, a good proportion of that lot was on my desk, probably some of it for months so now you see why I couldn't bring myself to show it :) It might, however get that way again as I really don't have the time to spend tidying up at the mo ;) 

Yes Julia, that was my daughter's IPad mini in the pink case. it can be bought from ebay. It's actually cut out and foiled rather than sparkly but it's very pretty and it reflects the light beautifully.

This is my desk just now, eek lol
Thanks for dropping by :)

There are two further shows on Ideal World (Ideal World sky 644 freeview 22) at 3pm and 5pm. There are some fab demos and some wonderful samples....the DT have been so busy!

I'm so excited seeing my work on TV again.
Back later, need to watch the show :) x

What's on your work desk Wednesday?

Good morning from our very soggy corner of the world, I hope you are all ok.

I can't believe it's so long since I took part in has probably been because my desk has just been such a tip I was too embarrassed to show it, yes, this has been tidied  :)

The cards you can see are to be finished and packed for Friday and the seating plan is the next thing on my list.

Pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and see some more desks from around the world :)

Thanks for dropping by xx

This usually only applies to orders of £20.00 and over, any orders below this are usually subject to a carriage charge of £4.99.

The winner, top three and a new challenge

in the Crafting Muskateers challenge Christmas in October are as follows

and the top three were chosen by poor Nicola (it gets harder to choose every month as there are so many amazing entries.

No 10.........Elena
No 24 ........Alexandra

So onto the new challenge for November. This month the challenge is being sponsored by Little Claire and theme is Pretty Pastels and here is the very generous prize which is up for grabs!

And now onto my card
I've used an image from the Little Claire web site and the papers are really old ones from when I was on Debbi Moore's DT years ago. I coloured the image with Promarkers and added lots of iridescent glitter and a piece of blue ribbon and Bobs your uncle!

Thanks for dropping by and good luck with your entry to our challenge, I can't wait to see what you make :) 

Aspire Crafts

I am absolutely chuffed to little mint balls to be asked to be on the Design Team for the very new Aspire Crafts.

A rather large parcel arrived on my doorstep on Monday morning and this is what I found when I opened it.....
This is the Vintage Bloom collection and it is absolutely beautiful and the quality is excellent. I had to have a play with it straight away and have been dipping into it all week in between other work! Here are my 'makes' so far

I have added a few flowers and feathers and a couple of bits of ribbon but everything else is what was in my parcel. You really need to take a look at the web site because you will be amazed at some of the stash on there.

We have a Facebook page called Aspiring Crafters and there is also an Aspire Crafts  blog where you can keep up with all the goings on and up to date news from Aspire.

Well that's it for tonight folks, see you tomorrow and thanks for dropping by.
