Tena lady moment?....:)

Hello again peeps!! its a 2 post day for me today because its time for a new challenge over on the FAS challenge blog too! I am the hostess with the mostest for the next 2 weeks. We have a pink theme for october too so arm yourself with some pink papers and this sketch.....
I hadn't done a tall and slim card in such a while so decided to plan the sketch around one of those!
and here's a little closer in on the sentiment I made on my computer.....

I just love to have a giggle so I decided on a good old girly breast cancer awareness card with a funny sentiment. There is nothing quite like laughing so much at something that it could be a tena moment ;) and laughter heals the soul anyway!!! he he he!!!

The paper on the bottom is from one of my fav ever Funky Hand downloads, Shabby Saturday. I love the words on it and its pink too so it fits in with our pink theme perfectly!! and the pink lace and raffia matched in lovely.

I am entering this into the Cupcake Challenge blogs Think Pink challenge, and the Totally Papercrafts Pretty pastels challenge.

Right then, got to get back to that ironing pile..!!

Kraftin Kimmie Patsy with a Halloween twist!!

Morning Peeps!

Its monday which means its my turn to show you all some yummy bits from the Dies to Die for shop over on the Dies to Die for blog!!

If you haven't noticed by now I LOVE Halloween!!! and this weekend I had fun giving Kraftin Kimmie's Patsy a bit of a halloween twist!! Her little 'I'm all shook up!' sentiment was so perfect for a spooky card I just couldn't resist!!!

I only have 2 of these Kraftin Kimmie stamps but Patsy is already my favourite because she is just so much fun!! 

The MME Boo To You! card kit was an absolute darling to play with too, packed full with fabulous papers and die cuts and I loved the little ghosty too!! 

I paper pieced Patsy using some of the papers from the kit and then got to work colouring her up a little zombiefied with my promarkers! The edges of her and the wee ghosty are distressed a bit with Brushed corduroy Distress Ink to blend in the white edges.

I added some Glossy Accents to her cool shades and popped her and ghosty up on some Stix 2 clear foam pads to make them stand out a bit. The little green gems are from my stash.

I am entering the show us your fave challenge over on the Kraftin Kimmie stamps challenge blog with this card. I so see a Kraftin Kimmie stamp obsession starting for me!!!

Hope you all have a great monday. I am on breakfast buddy duty this morning and then once Mo goes to school I need to have a good old ironing fest!!! lol!!!
