I have had this bird stamp for nearly a year and not used it until now. It is from the Tim Holtz Urban Chic set by Stampers Anonymous. The music stamp is repeat stamped, and is by Inkylicious. I have used Spellbinders Foliage and Curved Rectangles and all the backgrounds are inked using Hydrangea Big and Juicy applied with Ink Dusters. The colouring is very subtle and doesn't show up too well in the photo. The letters are from my stash. I am entering this into a challenge at Artful Times. The other entries are amazing, definitely worth a look. Mine is very simple in comparison but I enjoyed making it and love to support their blog. Any music fans will notice my glaring error! I stuck the music panel on upside down - silly me!! I hope you are enjoying the fabulous weather and thank you for stopping by. Take care, Christine xx

Well, I wasn't going to join in with the fun today as there was nothing at all on my desk, but then I had a delivery and the post arrived! The card is a set of 100 sheets of Bazzill Basics I ordered from QVC. I just love the selection of colours. The stamp set and trinkets are some Prima candy I won from Snazzy's Design Team Blog and they are gorgeous! Thank you Snazzy's - who are definitely a blog worth visiting. If you are wondering why I am showing you my desk then pop over to Julia's Wonderful Blog to find out and join in the fun. Thank you for visiting, I do appreciate it and I will pop and see you as soon as I can. Have a good week. Bye for now, Christine xx

Artful Times Blog has a current challenge called 'Time'. I missed their last challenge but have managed to post this in time (excuse the pun!).
The 'Time to Celebrate' and the watch stamp are both free clear stamps that came with different issues of Craft Stamper. The watches are stamped in Versemark on gloss card and randomly brayered with Soothing Sunset Big and Juicy ink. The background coloured card is gloss card inked in the same way just without the watches. The sentiment is stamped and embossed using the same ink and clear embossing powder on gloss card and punched out then layered on the inked gloss card die cut with small Scalloped Circle Spellbinders then on a die from Spellbinders Parisian Accents. The other bits and pieces are from my stash. I have added lots of glitter, I do love sparkles!
I would just like to apologise for being behind with my blog visits and comments, I am going to have a catch up tomorrow! Thanks very much for visiting. xx

The temptation was to quickly clear up my desk and put something more interesting out but that's not really the point is it? This is as I left it yesterday after I had finished the card in my last post, but I haven't got round to putting things away yet. There is another table on the left side of the room and that is covered with my paper trimmer, paper and various other bits and bobs too. Its amazing how much stuff you need for one simple little card!! You can see my Tim Holtz scissors which appear a lot, they are the best ones I have ever had, and the Marion Emberson bunting stamps and the letter and number stamps are from Craftwork Cards. Once again I have used Spellbinders Labels One cause I love them and there are the usual Promarkers, Distress Inks and various glues. I used my Grand Calibur too but have managed to put that away! If you don't have a clue why I am boring you with the goings on of my desk then pop along to Julia's Fabby Blog to find out and join in. Have a fabulous Wednesday and thanks for stopping by xx

Hi everyone, its ages since I posted so I thought I would share this birthday card I made for my friends son. I was having trouble coming up with an idea and suddenly remembered my Marion Emberson bunting stamps. The paper is from my stash and I used Promarkers to colour the flags and I then glazed them with Glossy Accents. I added some bakers twine from my stash and the scallop card is from Craftwork Cards as is the Card Candi which is white but coloured with a Promarker. Its simple but hopefully will be ok. Girly cards are sooooo much easier to come up with! x
