challenge over at Sparkles and this month it is...
Animals! As always you can make anything you like as long

Happy Halloween!

Hi everyone i hope you are all OK! Today is my favorite holiday
I am on a half term break from school so i am doing some spooky
 things like carving pumpkins and baking Halloween buns and
 cakes and later on im going trick or treating! I love making spooky
 things so i decided to do a Halloween display in the corner of our
 dining room/craft room! I used some spiders web around the edge
 and if you look really close you can see tiny spiders running across
 it! Then i put a spooky haunted house on a stand and filled a
 goblet with sweets and put it next to the house. We found a
Frankenstein light and my mum even decorated a candle! The 
creepy skull is put on a tub to stand higher than everything else
 with 2 paper pumpkins at either side. Then we covered a box to
 look like a mummy with 2 wiggly eyes and filled it with orange
 and black shredded paper. My brother so kindly stood for ages
 cutting up a black bag and put it above it all to look like 
streamers then lastly we put some more black and orange shredded
 paper in the empty bits. I loved making this..... it was
 soo much fun!
I will see you all very soon!

It's Halloween time at Sparkles!

Hi everyone I hope you're all OK!
 Today there is a new challenge at Sparkles and it is Halloween! 
If you don't like Halloween you could just use the colours!
I absolutely love Halloween so this challenge was SO much fun to
 make! I used a spooky image called "Boo the creepy clown" that 
my brother James drew. I added some spooky spiders and i inked
a bandage with some brown and black ink to make it look
 grungy and dirty then used it instead of ribbon. I doodled around
 the edges and used a spider web border die and a BOO die.
We're sponsored by Di's Digi's and you could win a $10 spend!
  Thanks for coming to my blog today, hope I see you at Sparkles!

A birthday card for James!


Hi everyone i hope your all OK! I'm so sorry i haven't been
blogging but I've been really busy with preparing for my first 
day of school and getting new uniform and stuff like that.
Anyway it was my brother James' birthday a while ago and i
 made him a card with this cute little green monster from Pollycraft. 
First i layered some spotty paper on green card, then i coloured
 the image & cut a green scallop circle for him to sit on. 
Since it was his 21st birthday i put the numbers 21 on a die
cut green star, then cut some more green stars with a layer of 
paper on it. Finally i wrote happy birthday on white paper
then layered it onto pieces of green card and stuck them
 on! I really enjoyed making it so i hope you like it!
 Here's a pic of James with a HUGE chocolate champagne bottle!
Thanks for visiting my blog......I'm coming to see you all!

Megan's birthday card!

Hi everyone are you all OK?  Today is my best friend Megan's
 birthday so i made her this card using some of her favourite 
colours! I also gave her a big bag of Haribos as a birthday present!
I really hope both you and Megan like it! I really enjoyed 
making this card! I used one of my favourite images from 
Sugar Nellie and shes a manga girl. I coloured her in using
 flex/promarkers and stuck her onto black card. Then i chose 
some papers and stuck them on some black card. Last i cut out
 some little pieces of black card and stuck gems onto them so it 
looks like they are holding the whole thing down! And thats how
 i made it!

A new challenge at Sparkles!

Hello everyone, there's a new challenge starting at 
Sparkles today and the theme is to make something
Steampunk or Vintage. Crafty Ribbons is the sponsor
and here is what you can win:
I made a tag to go with a card my Mum made. I've
never made anything Steampunk before but this
was really easy. I cut out a black tag shape, then
added a piece of paper and some shapes then used
a small piece of ribbon and that's it! I can't wait to see 
all the things you make, it can be any craft thing
you like as long as it's Steampunk or Vintage.

Have fun!

Hello everyone, I hope you're OK! I'm real sorry for being such a 
bad blogger, I've just been sooooo busy with school! My SATS
are all over and done with now so I hope I  have done well! 
I had a lovely Birthday and got some lovely cards through the
 post so I want to say a big THANK YOU to Julie, Rachel and Liz. 
I have done a collage of photos of the cards and there's
a pic of my yummy cake too! 
I made a card this week as well, I used one of my favourite
Anya images and some lovely bright summery coloured
paper and ribbon. I coloured her with Spectrum Noir pens and
tried to make it look like she's outside on the beach! I used 2 
different sizes of punch for the flowers.
I've been reading a lot this week, I'm reading the Mallory Towers
books by Enid Blyton. My Mum used to read these books when she
was my age too! Do you read?  I got a new blog background
 too. Hope you like it!
Thank you for visiting my blog today.

A new challenge at Sparkles!

 Hello everyone, I have scheduled this to post on time as I'm
busy at school this week so I hope it works! There is a new
challenge at Sparkles today and the theme is
Monochrome. I love this theme cos I can use all different
shade of black and grey. My Mum and me coloured some
images the other day and I used this one to make a
 bookmark. I tried real hard with the shading on
this one and I really like it but I think I need to practice a
bit more! I used a scrap of paper and a die cut doily, some
punched flowers and some pearls and some peel offs 
for the words. If you want to join us at Sparkles you can make
anything you like and you have a month to join in. We are
sponsored by Crafty Ribbon - here is something about them:

Remember when we only used ribbons to add a bow to our hair, or tie up a birthday parcel?  Ribbons are now a "must-have" for all types of craft.  Whether your project requires satin, sheer, silk, grosgrain, gingham or polka dot ribbon we have them all!  Lots and lots of different colours in a range of widths.
Need a little bit of ribbon inspiration - then have a look at our projects on our blog,or visit our Inspiration blog,or maybe join in with us at our Challenge blog.  Go on, have a look... It's worth it !

yellows to make it just right. Well, i'm off to watch "The Voice"

Sparkles new challenge!

Hello everyone, I hope you are all OK! Today there is a new 
challengeat Sparkles and the theme is Lace it up! We are sponsored
 by Floppy Latte and you can make anything you like!
The challenge lasts for a month so it gives you lots of time to join in!
My card is for a little girl I know in blogland who is having a
Birthday in a few days so I hope she doesn't see it, but I think her
Mum (Rachel) might because she always visits my blog and leaves
 me lovely comments. I tried real hard to get the hair right on this
 card and I used 3 colours. I like it but know it could be lots better
so I'll keep practising! Thank you for visiting my blog and I will
see you soon.
