My internet's connection been playing up tonight so I best post this before it goes again! (Don't need a stash list as it's pretty much using same papers and colouring mediums as my last WoJ card, 2 posts down). It's all super sparkly IRL and I've stamped some text in the background just for a bit of interest (an old See D stamp set) with distress ink 'old paper' which has been stamped off once onto scrap before stamping onto here so you get a faded text look to it and then sponged around edges in 'tattered rose'

Thought this Willow would look cute teamed with the armchair so stamped and masked her and added the chair. As I've watercoloured with combination of distress inks and H2O's it is lovely and shimmery IRL not sure if you can just about pick up a bit of it in the photo below.
Not much else to say about this really as I kept the rest of the card very simple to leave the focus on the sweet image.
Should have another card or 2 to show tomorrow too (one should be a new Kraftin Kimmie release if I can finish it in time!). So hopefully see you then.
Have a lovely Saturday. I'm starting to feel a bit more christmassy now that we've gone and bought a new tree (took the plunge and got a non-green one for first time ever ! . . it's a lovely champagne colour). Just need to sort out the presents and everything else now!

Also great chance for me to play with some of my new Martha stewart punches (yes, I'm addicted and also running out of rail space to hang them. Hmm trip to Ikea soon me thinks). Hardly any decent light today and I suck at trying to take pictures that show dimension/shadows AND the true colours of the card, so here's another shot of it showing the true white that it actually is.
Hope you like it.

so anyway, here it is. Wanted to try a collagy/distressed look with handsome little Oakley from the Winter kit.
I've stamped a WoJ xmas tree to one side and him to the front then masked him and added music sheet behind him (an Magnolia 'silent night' stamp from last year). Then it's all been sponged with distress inks and all the edges have been set upon with my distresser. It's been spritzed with glimmer mist but it doesn't show at all in the photo and the little bauble has diamond glaze and glamour dust over it. After all that, I'm not quite sure I like it but it's done now!
Right, now for the real reason you popped over. . .
The winner of my mini WoJ candy - sorry for the delay!
Random.org isn't working tonight so I've had to randomly pick a winner (very technical - I closed my eyes and scrolled up & down then clicked on a name :D)
Congrats! Please email me your snail mail and it's yours!
As promised here's another little candy from me, which includes the cute 'Uru with bird' WoJ rubber stamp, courtesy of Katharina and some MME papers and paper flowers from me. To enter please post a link of this on your blog (or just spread the word if you don't have a blog) and enter via Mister Linky (NOT via comments)
Will announce winner (using random.org) on 22nd Nov. Good luck! (see post above this)

So anyway, teen cards means bright funky colours & simple clean layouts to me and thought it was great opportunity for me to dig out some Kerry Jo stamps I got last year but never got round to using them all. Think they are perfect teen images, just a shame I couldn't come up with something better layout wise, but this was quick and simple.
It's a kick stand card, so here's another shot of it, folded flat and also should be able to see all the glitter better;

Not played along to PTW for a while but this week's was a nice simple sketch which I couldn't resist. I've used this cute snow bunny I got from Silly Monkey's but have only just got around to using (just like all my other stamps). She does come with a cute sentiment (you're snow sweet) but I've not used it here as the background was busy enough. Can't tell from photo but the bunny is on 3D foam so pops off the card more than it looks.
That's all for tonight, thanks for popping by. Off to make another poo . . . of the crochet kind LOL (see post below)! and maybe another card or two as it's definitely crafting weather again tonight (the wind's howling away outside as I type).
So here is my first trial run. . . Now it's real toilet humour so be warned :D. . . . Yup, the Ulitimate in cr*p/s**t/poo (whatever word you want to use!) presents! (well, it beats getting knitted socks from your Auntie doesn't it?!) . .

After my last crochet attempt with my moose which took a while I wanted to go back to doing something quick & simple. Now, I love the little Japanese Momiji dolls (I have a few) and my neice found me this free crochet pattern which reminded me of them, so I had to try!
I adapted it a bit as I wanted a more accentuated head/body and managed to make the body all in one piece (the patteren has it as 2 seperate bits) which I am well chuffed with as I am complete novice :). Made use of some of my beading things for her hair accesory. It's about the same size as the dolls (3.5" tall) and I think they will look cute when I make a couple more and put them together. I'm going to adjust the hair pattern next time too as it's a bit too big for my liking. What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by. Have a lovely day.

Anyway, I got the pattern off etsy (here if you're interested) and when I saw it I thought it would make a great reindeer too. However, I didn't want to make it permanent so mine is . . .
