Ericraft Stamps New Release October 2017

This is one of the latest releases from Ericraft Stamps, "Rachel to the Sea".  She can be found here https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/548136748/digital-stamp-rachel-to-the-sea-300dpi?ref=shop_home_active_3 at a reduced price but be quick. This is such a lovely scene, cre
ated by Erica, based on a photo of her daughter, that I just had to find a suitable quote to go with it.  As you can see I need some practice on the ocean, but I really enjoyed colouring this piece of serenity. 

I have entered the following challenges:

Scrapper's Delights Thrifty Thursday - 19th October 2017

October's theme is Halloween with most digi companies I might add, so of course, Scrapper's Delights is focussing on the Halloween section of the shop http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=89_157&sort=20a&page=1
You will also find some great images and backgrounds in the Gothic section and if you are lucky enough you will pick up some discounted prices there too.  I have used on my treat bag Bat Women 1
 http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=89_157&products_id=626 and the background I have mounted her on is http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=89_107&products_id=793. There are a few toppers in that bundle so it is definitely a great deal and especially good when it is discounted for Halloween.  Thank you for stopping by and Happy Halloween!

Tiddly Inks Theme #3

I think I have made it in time with my third entry to Tiddly Inks 2:3 challenge.  This theme is Anything Goes and seeing we are in October and on the home stretch to Christmas 2017, I have chosen to design a Chrissie card. I have used Christmas Cutie - Emma available here https://www.tiddlyinks.com/digital-stamps/christmas-cutie-emma-digital-stamp/  Last week I bought a Kaisercraft Mint Wishes 6 x 6 pad because it caught my eye as it did not have red in it for Christmas. I do love red, but occasionally it is nice to use a different set of colours for Christmas.  Of course I had to buy the diecuts that matched. The round sentiment was in that pack and the little blue flower is from my never-ending stash.  I have really enjoyed this challenge at https://blog.tiddlyinks.com/2017/10/23-challenge-a-50-gift-certificate-and-more-up-for-grabs.html/comment-page-1#comment-7164

Whenever I make a Christmas card I always put it on the Kerst/Christmas Group on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.1910729115611650&type=3

Tiddly Inks Take 2

I told you I would be back.  This time with Theme #2 - Girly Girl of the 2:3 Challenge for Tiddly Inks. https://blog.tiddlyinks.com/2017/10/23-challenge-a-50-gift-certificate-and-more-up-for-grabs.html/comment-page-1#comment-7141 For this birthday card I have used Fairy Flower for You https://www.tiddlyinks.com/whats-new/flower-fairy-for-you-2-versions/ I die cut a small doily out of glitter card, a couple of hearts from The Resin Rainbow https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/theresinrainbow?ref=shop_sugg and some Make It Crafty Chipboard http://www.makeitcrafty.com/
I am really enjoying this challenge.  I have had quite a few Tiddly Inks digital stamps for a while and probably like many of you reading my blog, do not use them enough. If you want to get into the blog challenges on Tiddly Inks, check out the blog here https://blog.tiddlyinks.com/2017/10/23-challenge-a-50-gift-certificate-and-more-up-for-grabs.html/comment-page-1#comment-7141

I am also going to enter this card at https://sheepski-designs-challenges.blogspot.com.au/2017/10/challenge-7-use-some-pink.html because it just happens to have some pink on it.

Ericraft Stamps "Sir Guinea Pig"

Sir Guinea Pig has graced us with his presence at the Ericraft Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/548134920/digital-stamp-sir-guinea-pig-300dpi-jpeg?ref=shop_home_active_2 and if you love guinea pigs as I do (they have been a family pet for generations in my family including myself, my children and my grandchildren) you won't be able to resist him and check out the price, he is discounted at the moment.  He looks pretty steampunk to me, so I have added some cogs (what is steampunk without cogs?). I have made him into a birthday card and I am thinking the card might be use for my grandson'sw birthday next year.  Easy just add a number and it becomes a perfect age card.  Thank you for stopping by and don't forget grab Sir Guinea Pig before the price changes!

I am entering the following challenges with this card:

Scrapper's Delights New Release "Winnie Halloween Witch 1" October 2017

We have a new release over at Scrapper's Delights store http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=6&products_id=1043.  I decided to combine the Ghosts Progressive Challenge digi into this inspiration and make a treat bag.  I came up with the sentiment (corny hey!) and for the background I used one of the papers from the A4 Halloween papers range available here http://scrappersdelights.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2_3_168&products_id=318 and they are on special at the moment because of the Halloween sale.  See details on this post: https://www.facebook.com/scrappers.delights/posts/1467753503319926
