Pink atg gun up for grabs

You better get your skates on if you want to be in with a chance to win this fab giveaway, as it is being drawn Saturday 2nd Oct. So head on over to DISNEY DREAM DESIGNS to be in with a chance.

I'm finally getting an A3 printer....yippee

I've not been able to get my printers feeder tray to work properly, it keeps jamming even with 120gsm paper. I have finally convinced my hubby to buy me a new one, but not only a new one but an A3 one, i've so been after one since forever.  I looked around for a few days looking at the best deals and what was on offer and found that the Brother DCP-6690CW was the perfect one for me and my needs. PC Pro magazine fully recommended it. So he's bought it me and it will be delivered within 2 working days.

This is it....i'm so chuffed to pieces.

MPS 5 Million Celebration Post #2 - Challenge!

I made this card for the My Pink Stamper 5 Million Celebration Challenge post 2. It had to have a bird incorporated into the card design, so I chose an Halloween card with a spooky tree from Happy Hauntings cartridge along with a silhouette crow also from the same cart. The papers are from Designer Extreme 3 by Barely Mine Designs.

Not Well

I feel bad i've not been keeping up with my blogging, I've been dreading the day when the kids went back to school and started bringing home bugs and germs from other children and passing them onto me and their daddy.

Well i have been full of  a cold now for almost 2 weeks and there's no sign yet of it clearing up....:-(  I have the bad cough now and catarrh on my chest and bad headaches. I'm hoping there is a sign of improvement by Saturday for my kiddies birthday party. Ryan has just turned 6 and Sophie will be 5 on the 3rd Oct, so they're having a joint party midway between their birthdays. I really don't feel up to it, but its all booked now so can't cancel.....oh well i'll have to grin and bare it.

I'll be back soon I hope.

Help if you can FUNDRAISER!!
Hey everyone!! This is Alison from freedigitalstamps.blogspot.com and Stretch N' Bubbles.. I am contacting you because my father(mom & dad in photo) had a stroke on the 18th of Aug. he just got out of the ICU.. Both of my parents live with me, and my father has been a constant stone in the lives of our families..He has owned and worked at his own cabinet shop for over 40years, never advertised.. all his clients were by word of mouth.. but now he will not be able to return to work.. He has no feeling in his right side and his speech has been affected. I found out from my mother that they have very poor insurance, the hospital bills alone is going to be a great burden for her (and our family) to bear, let alone rehab etc. So I along with 4 other amazing digital stamp artists are putting together a fundraiser.

J.I.C Blog challenge 9

Okay! This weeks challenge is a Sketch, this is such an easy sketch challenge and i loved it.

This is my take on the sketch. I used a vibrant yellow cardbase from The PaperMill shop,
Also I matted a very Orange cardstock onto that also from The PaperMill shop,
The beige card stock is from a matt stack from the neutrals range of DCWV, The 2 patterned matts are also from DCWV The Naturals matstack range.
The Sun shape and circle was an svg cut from Penny Duncans Blog, and the flower was a punch from the Martha Stewart Range.
For the centre of the flower i used some gold flat backed pearls i bought on ebay at bobityboocrafts. I also used some bronzed flat backed pearls for the four corners.
