Hi im Heidi. Am married to David, Mum to Amy, Jessie and Georgia. I am a stay-at-home Mum who loves to craft and leave the housework, lol! We have a houseful of pets.
I am happy for anyone to take inspiration from my ideas but please do not copy any of my designs for inclusion in magazines, competitions etc. Thanks x
Good evening, wow what a sourcher it has been here today! I have worked all weekend, so here is my first challenge in a few days, although it was too hot to craft, I struggled through anyway, lol! I love these challenges over at Mojo Monday Challenge Blog , they are such versatile sketches!
I used a cute little Anya image, My Mnd's Eye papers called 'Pretty Please'. Bazzill black Tulle, black & pink Swiss Dot card and black jelli dots. My sentiment was made with QK 'Lemonade' Cookie Cutter Alphabet, which you can buy for the ridiculously low price of £22.49 from Crafts U Love , hurry they are selling fast! I have coloured her in using my Copics and have added Micro Dots to the flower centres.
Have a great evening, thanks for dropping by my blog, hugs Heidi xxx
I couldn't believe the news when I first heard it here on the web. I then turned on BBC world news and they confirmed it. I have always loved his music and have all of his cd's. This picture is how I am going to remember him, I can remember when I first heard 'Thriller', the whole of the night club where I was at the time, went berserk. I have never got bored of hearing it and my daughters play my cd's all of the time. Whether you loved him or hated him, he was a musical genius and personally, his music defined my growing-up years. xx
Good evening, here at last is my DT card for Moving Along With The Times Challenge Blog . A new challenge blog with great prizes. The theme this week is 'Strawberries & Cream' and you must incorporate this into your card using the sketch above.
My card recipe : Anneka 'Anya' stamp, Magenta papers, flowers, pearl and bling from stash.
I have just finished watching a really funny film, 'Dan in Real Life' it stars Steve Carrell, as a father who finds love. OMG, its so funny! I first saw him in Bruce Almighty and then in The Forty-Year Old Virgin amoung others. If you need a laugh, go buy this movie, it had David, Amy and I rolling around the floor. Right am off to bed, so glad to be back blogging, night! Heidi xxx
Hello, yippee!!! I am finally able to blog, my computer has been a bit poorly so I do apologise for the lack of postings over the last week. Anyway, I will be uploading two cards today, both of which are my DT entries, firstly for the Willow Sketchie Challenge and then for the fab new blog Moving with the times Challenge Blog . For my Willow card, I have used the lovely new download 'Grace'. If you take part in the challenge this week, using any Willow image, you could win her.
Recipe : I have coloured her in using Copics, matted her onto Turquoise Bazzill card and have used My Mind's Eye 'Pretty Please' papers. My sentiment is from Woodware, Kaisercraft flower, Doodlebug bling stones and some lace from stash.
I will be back later to upload my other card, hoping your having a wonderful day in the sunshine, let's make the most of it though, as the rain is on its way in the next day or so! Hugs Heidi xxx
Good evening, wow what a long week it has been!, apologies for not blogging sooner. I have been doing extra hours at work to cover holidays and have been catching up with chores and the family, so not alot of crafting time for me. Anyway, I have made time to make this card for The Sugar Bowl challenge. Great little sketch from Lilian and the theme is that you have to use 'kraft' card or brown and cream somewhere on your card. As you can see, I have gone for colours.
Recipe : Daisy Bucket papers, Brown and Coral Bazzill Cardstock, Gorguss Girlie Stamp, Daisy and button punch, QK Scallop Squares, SU Sentiment, white ribbon and pearl from stash.
Am off to bed soon, working again tommorrow, if you can call it work, I will be watching the fabulous Kim Piggott demoing at the shop tommorrow, I cannot wait! If you are not familiar with Kim's wonderful cards (where have you been???), then please do pop over to see them on her blog, you won't be disappointed! Enjoy what is left of the sunshine tommorrow, thanks for stopping by and for all of your lovely comments, hugs Heidi xx
Good afternoon peeps! I bet your out there enjoying the sunshine? Its been super-hot here today, much to hot to do anything but craft, lol! Sorry I haven't managed to upload my D & D DT card this week, for some reason, it won't let me upload onto my blog. It has been put on the challenge blog, so if you did want to see it, its on there.
My challenge today is for Stamptacular Sunday Challenge . It's theme is 'Fabulous Father's', my dad, unfortunately no longer with me, loved fishing, so I know that he would have loved my card. Also, I don't make enough male themed cards, so this was a real challenge for me. I have been wanting to make a slider card for ages, it was so fun to do. I have given you a side view to show how I made this.
My image is 'Fishing Ian', not sure if that's his proper name, but hey ho! I have used Nestie's # 3, Cosmo Cricket paper and brown Bazzill card. The stamped sentiment is Magnolia and the 'DAD' was cut out using QK Dragonfly. I have glossy accented the little fish and have cut the larger one out using a QK die in mirri-card.
If any of you dear blogging buddies know where I can get hold of a 'Surfer Ian' stamp, I would be very grateful. I have two cards to do for twin nephews who live in Devon, they are big surfer dudes, so his image would be perfect for the project I have in mind, thanks alot. The big ironing pile awaits, have a great evening, love Heidi xxx
Afternoon, hope you haven't got wet today? I just did again for the third time. We have got torential rain here in Sussex at the moment and my sheets have had yet another rinse on the line!
Anyway, here is my second card out of three for the day. I have been trying to upload my D & D DT card, having trouble with that one, so anyway here is my entry for Colour Create Challenge . Great colour scheme this week, had to search the paper boxes to find a paper that matched all three colours. The added element is that you have to use diecuts somewhere on your card. I have used a new stamp, a little 'Ketto' stamp from 'Stamping Bella'. I have treated myself to three of them, this one is 'Anise', isn't she sweet? My paper is SEI, I have used green, lilac and pink Bazzill Cardstock, my Dahlia Nestie and a QK Flower die with jelli dots and bling from stash. The sentiment is from a new set by 'Stampasauraus'. Will try to upload my other card soon, have to go and feed the zoo, take care Heidi xx
Hello, its Thursday, so it must be Willow Sketchie Challenge time again! Zoe's turn to create a sketch, I have decided to twist mine around, being the rebel that I am, lol! I have used the cute 'Winnie Owl - Shopping' download that can be purchased by clicking on the above. Orange Bazzill cardstock and the fabulous new Bo Bunny papers 'Mango Luau' which I absolutely luv. I have cut out one of the flowers and have decoupaged it with some orange blingy stones. Do pop over and take a look at all of the inspiration from the DT, have a super day. Good luck to my daughter Amy, she is taking her 'Sociology' A Level today! Be back later with my D & D DT offering, thanks for stopping by and any comments you may leave, hugs Heidi xx
Good evening, hope you have had a good day and have been able to make lots of cards? I have had a busy day at work today, so it was nice to get home and unwind by making this card for the Allsorts Challenge Blog . This week's theme is 'Pink & White', so I just had to use this lovely paper I brought today from 'Little Yellow Bicycle'. The image is of 'Princess Anya' with some Pink and green Bazzill Bling. Flowers from 'Imaginisce', Leaf punch from Woodware, 'Jelli Dots' from Craftwork Cards and sentiment is Hero Arts. Buttons, bow and clip from stash.
David captured this lovely piccy of Molly this morning, talk about a poser! Normally she runs off as soon as the camera points at her so am glad we managed to snap this one. Enjoy your evening, thanks for stopping by! Heidi xx
Good evening, firstly I must apologise, I have gone 'Anya' mad, so if you are bored of these images yet, please forgive me, lol! I thought this one from the Miss Anya range would go really well with these papers from My Mind's Eye. I just love Dawny's sketches over at Papertake Weekly Challenge , they are so versatile! Have spent the day with my daughter Amy today. She is on study leave for her 'A' Levels and its not often that we get chance to catch up, so it's been really nice. Am off to catch up with the going-on's on Big Brother, what a strange bunch they are this year! Have a great weekend, Heidi xxx
Evening, am back again with this challenge, just couldn't put this stamp down! She has to be my favourite so far, especially as she has a little kitty! This challenge over at Charisma Cardz is using pink and brown's, two of my favourite colour combo's. I have used some paper from my huge stash box, by 'Making Memories'. Some brown Bazzill, flowers and pearls from 'Kaisercraft', QK Flourishes and tabs and 'Papermania' brads. Anyway, am off to see the new candidates on Big Brother, promise myself every year that I won't get hooked, sure I will again. Thanks for stopping by, hugs Heidi xxx
Hello peeps! Hope you are having a lovely day? I have spent the day catching up with the housework and washing, if I have any energy left later, I will attempt to do another challenge but this may be the only post today, as I may fall asleep, lol!
Here is my DT entry for Daisy & Dandelion Challenge Blog . It was my turn to come up with the sketch and theme this week, I decided to go down the back and white route. I a have used lots of bits from stash. The flower is Bazzill and the sentiment is a 'Jane Gill' one from Woodware. I am loving these 'Nesties', have now had to buy them from a friend as I borrowed them and had forgotten to give them back, what am I like?? Right am off to feed the girls and play with my Anya's, take care Heidi xx
