Sorry I lost track of days

Hi everyone I am so sorry this is late I am working nights at the moment and just totally lost track of days. This is the post that I should have put on here yesterday for you all....
I hope you are all having a good weekend I have another of the new stamps to show you today these will be released at the show and I am so jealous of any of you that are going to be able to be there. This little lady is from the amazing Hannah Lynn and she is called Birthday Girl. I have coloured her with a whole mix of things this time I have used mainly pro markers but then added touches of both sakura gel and stardust pens before glazing the balloons. This is a lot more sparkly and shiny than these pictures make it look.

My second card for you is the one I did for this weeks Crafts and Me challenge which is ribbon. there is still time for you to take part and stand the chance to win a great prize so make sure you try it out. This beauty is a digi from where else but the wonderful Crafts and me. She is called Felicia. I have coloured her with promarkers and then added sakura stardust pens and some stickles.

Huge hugs to you all

A Card From My Sister

Morning Crafts and Me Fans,

I'm afraid I don't have a new card for you today. I am busy behind the scenes getting ready for the forthcoming craft show and am trying to get DT cards done for when I am away next week in Turkey, yayyyy! Can't wait and I certainly need a rest that's for sure.

My first card below is my challenge card using the new image "Butterflies in my hair" available HERE.

The card below is a card that my sister made me for my 25th Wedding Anniversary last week using the Art Deco Couple HERE.

Isn't it gorgeous!

Have a good week everyone.

Hugs Tracy x

Show Samples

Hi everyone.  So sorry for being so quiet here lately, but I have been busy with work and getting all the things the kids need for school as they start Aug. 1.  I think I have about everything they need but a couple of things and I will have to get those this weekend.

For my first card I used Fairy at Sunset by Jasmine Beckett-Griffith and decided to go with a Fall look with all the warm colors. And you can get all 3 of these images I used at Crafts and Me Stamps.

For my second card I used Hannah Lynn's "Butterfly Keeper".  This was one of my first Hannah Lynn stamps and I love her. She is what made me fall in love with Hannah's artwork. I added some glossy accents to her eyes and globe.

My last card is what I created for our last Rockin Rubber DT Challenge. For this card I used Romeo, oh Romeo by Sara Burrier.

I keep all these cards pretty simple and mostly flat as they are all 3 going to the craft show with Teresa and need to be 5.25 x 5.25 and minimal embellishments, at least ones with not a lot of lift as they will all be going into an album/book. 
Well I hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.

Sweet Selena

Hi everyone and happy Wednesday :)
Sylvia here, with two cards that I want to show you. Both are created using the adorable images designed by Hannah Lynn

The first one is using 'Sweet Selena'...mmm.. doesn't she look 'yummy' with all the chocolate dipped strawberries and that sweet little cupcakes in her hair? ;-)

The second one is not brand new, but my very first card using a Hannah Lynn stamp design and it's one of my all time favorite cards using a Crafts and Me stamp :-) and I hope you like it, too. The image is a digi stamp called 'Hidden Treasures'

Hannah Lynn

Good morning all you lovelies its Vicky here with you today. I have been really ill & ended up in hospital so have not crafted for 2 weeks but I actually got 2 colour a few images yesterday while resting in bed. I was hoping to try get them on a card last night but my sons girlfriend Megan got took in hospital with really bad abdominal pains & we were all worried she was losing the baby. Thankfully the baby seems to be all fine & they are not sure whats causing the pains so at the min we are waiting for test results coming back.
Anyway I thought I would show you the images I've done, well 2 of the images......but dont tell Teresa I'm here as she told me to rest & not to worry about DT work & to get better.......mmmm I never was very good at doing as I'm told lol. She is a super boss tho, love her to bits.......
As most of you know tho my absolute fave artist ever is Hannah Lynn so the 2 images I'm showing you are of course by her.........boy I sooooooo love her images.
This beautiful lady is called 'Violet' & of course is exclusive to Crafts & Me.
Dont look too closly actually cus I've just realised I've not coloured the shells lol.....will have to do them before she goes on a card lol. The background also needs doing.

This sultry beauty is called 'Deevonne' isnt she just gorgeous I love her hair. I love Hannah Lynn because of the hair & faces on these images & no matter how you colour their hair they always look beautiful, these images are just a pleasure to colour.
I have actually made a mistake with this image so not sure yet if she will make it on a card. If you look on her cheek where her hair falls down I have done a rosy cheek to match the other side where her hair actually covers her cheek so there would be no rosiness.........oops lol....
Both of these images were coloured with Copics.

Well I will go now before Teresa catches me here lol. Dont forget the 'Rockin' Rubbah' girls have their current challenge running which is 'Add A Flower' how easy is that...... Pop back later to
Crafts & Me Challenges to see if you are a winner or indeed in the Top 3 from my 'Favourite Stamp' challenge 2 weeks ago. The new challenge with the fabulous digi girls will start on Wednesday.

Well tatty bye for now enjoy the rest of your day.
Big squishy hugs Vicky xoxoxo

Celtic Angel

Hey Sweet friends!

Finally i got the time to upload my card. So sorry i`m late. I ususally work in the mornings at saturdays but several of our workers are on holiday so i had to work the evening shift. O`boy was it crappy to work late on a saturday evening.

For my card i have used a new image designed by Sara Burrier. It`s called Celtic Angel, and you can find it right here. I noticed that Karina used the same image for her card yesterday, lol. I just hope you don`t get bored with it too soon, hahaha. Karina did an incredible job on her card. But still, mine looks completely different. I allways find it scary to post after Karina course her colouring skills are just fantastic. So she really sets the standard, lol. Well anyway here is my card.

I have kept it real clean and simple this time. I wanted the main focus on the gorgeous image. Hope you like my card.

I also, just real quick, want to show you the card i made for the last digi-team challenge. This is also an image designed by Sara Burrier. It is called Shitake and Oregano, and you can find it right here. This is also one of the brand new ones.

Well, thats all from me for this time. See you at the next challenge hosted by the digi-team. If you haven`t entered the "add a flower" challenge over at the challenge blog, please be sure to do so.

Have a nice weekend you all!

Celtic Angel

Hi everyone, Karina here... it is Digi Weeks Friday again, and so time for me to show you some new creations I made. We have such gorgeous new images available as digis. One of them is from the amazing artist Sara Burrier, called 'Celtic Angel'. She is such a beauty! I love her and she is wonderful to colour. I love the long beautiful dresses of some of Sara's images. I am interested in anything celtic, so a big pleasure for me to play with her. You can find her HERE. I coloured her with Copics and the papers are from 7Gypsies.

The second card I show you today is made with another new image. It is from fabulous artist Hannah Lynn. She is called 'Deevonne' and such a big fun to colour up as well. You can find her HERE. I coloured her with Copics as well. The papers are from Basic Grey. I made this card for the last challenge over at Crafts and Me challenges. Right now we have the theme 'Add a Flower'. So don't miss to join. We love to see your creations over there.

Thank you so much for your visit. It is always much apprechiated. I wish you a wonderful and magical weekend.
Hugs, Karina

Teachers Notebook

Afternoon all!  My lad is 'Graduating' from Nursery today so feeling a bit sad!  Wasn't that long ago that we were trying to get him to stay there and the teachers were trying to peel him off me when he was hysterical then he finally settled, loves it and its time to move on to big school!

 I made all the staff a notebook each with Ethan helping me choose images and colours and this is one of them using the Hannah Lynn digi stamp Forever Rose.  I coloured with promarkers and sakura stardust adding tiny star gems randomly in her hair and outlining with glitter glue.

This one was for last weeks challenge at Crafts and Me and I was playing around with a Clean & Simple style with lots of white space.  I can do simple OK but I generally use papers to accent rather than embellishent so lots of white space is new territory for me!  The image is May by Sara Burrier and is simply mounted on orange and yellow card to match the dress.

Well I'm off to pick my lad up and watch him graduate, it'll be his senior school one before I know it!

Seasons canvasses

Hello, I'm Jane and it's my first post on the Crafts and Me blog today. I'm so thrilled to be able to share my creations with you using the gorgeous digi stamps from Crafts and Me! I have decorated a canvas depicting autumn to share with you today.

The image is the gorgeous Noon from Crafts and Me - she is just stunning and perfect to depict autumn with all those little squirrels! I have used lots of texture and rich autumn colours. For more details on what I've used please see my own blog here. Of course, to make my wall display complete I need the other seasons - here is my summer canvas below that I created for last week's Crafts and Me Challenge.

I used the gorgeous Valentine's Night for this one and again lots of texture in fresh light colours for summer. You can find out more about this one here.

Hope you like them and I've inspired you to create something a little different with your stamps! Have a wonderful day! x

Enchanting Card Set

Hi there!  This is Rose sharing with you an enchanting card set that I've put together using a few of the fabulous and recently released Crafts and Me digi images.

This photo shows a lightly embellished folder using Old Log and three coordinating cards using Morning Glories, Child of Healing, and Shiitake and Oregano.

These cards, with envelopes, fit so nicely inside of the folder and will make a very nice handmade gift.  Wouldn't giving away this enchanting card set be a fun way to share your card art?

This all occasion card using Child of Healing by Sara Burrier is also shown at the Crafts and Me Dynamite Digi design team's Summertime challenge.

You can find these and more newly released digi images at the Crafts and Me store here.

There's still time to add your entry to the current Dynamite Digi Summertime challenge here.  Visit the Crafts and Me challenge blog again on Wednesday for a new Rockin' Rubbah challenge.

Here's wishing you plenty of relaxation and enjoyment!  We're so glad you stopped by to visit!

Fairy cute :D

How cute is this little fairy? She is called Fairy with dried flowers and you can get her HERE. I have coloured her with promarkers then added touches of sparkle with sakura stardust pens before finishing her off with some flower soft :D

My next card is the one I did for this weeks Crafts and Me challenge which is to be inspired by summer. I thought of the sea and swimming and could not resist this stunning Sarah Burrier digi called Colombine (available HERE). Again I have coloured her with promarkers then stamped the swirls on the card blank and inked round the edges :D

Huge hugs to you all

A Little or A lot of Lilac

Morning Crafts and Me Fans,

I've finally got round to inking up Genevieve, she is sooo my favourite at the moment.  A real short post from me as I've been to the gymn again, another 450 calories burnt off, but they need to be as tomorrow I'm taking my son to see Harry Potter and you can't go to the cinema without popcorn can you, lol, but I also need to get the shopping list done and it's already 11pm, oops!

And this is my Challenge DT card just in case you didn't see it using Queen of Halloween.

Queen Of Halloween

Hi everyone.  Today I have one of Jasmine Becket-Griffith newest stamps to show you called 
"Queen of Halloween"-Unmounted Rubber Stamp.  Things have been crazy here as school starts in 2 weeks, my oldest daughter has to have her Senior pictures taken next week and we still have school shopping to do.  On top of that my little one has some kind of bumpy rash all over her and the Dr. has no idea what it is or what caused it. Plus I am working on a lot of cards for Teresa for her show in August. 

Anyway back to my cards.  Anytime I make a bright colored card using bright purples or reds, it is so hard to get a good picture of them and this is one of them.

Here skin also looks yellow in the pictures, but in real life it's not yellow at all.

This is the card I created for our last Challenge by the Rockin Rubber DT.

I used another one of Jasmine Becket-Griffith's images/ rubber stamp called  "Swirl Pearl Mermaid".

Both were colored with copics.
I hope you get a chance to play with the new Crafts and Me challenge hosted by the Digi DT.  They just started a new challenge yesterday.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
