Now Dont Faint.....

and don't get over excited either..I'm afraid i'm not stopping long...
I just thought i'd stop by to say that Yes i am still alive, and Yes i am still wrapped up in all things ALteReD
BUT...i have created something this is partly cute!!
 I thought i'd share this fathers day card with you as although its kind of a distressed affair, it does contain one of the very delightful and very cute LOTV images
Created using a lotv boy stamp, a woj fence stamp, and a see-d's alpha set, distress inks, bottle tops and old paper pages.
A short and sweet post, from a short but sweet host.. Sorry my cute chums for neglecting you but you must follow your heart sometimes.. and mine right now is full of distress {ink that is}

Heaven Sent!

This was created with some of the random bits i had lying about on my desk, I try and do this now and again, like a mini challenge for myself, plus it help to clear some of the clutter that alwyas seems to build up on my desk lol.

I used my favourite Gorjuss 'Guardian Angel' stamp and she's coloured with copics.
I used a few of my own scrunch blooms and the swirls were cut using a Slice, The paper is foil glittered and i've also used a strip of fab raffia lace
This card fits in with a couple of challenges:

My Guy Ian...

No i don't have a new man in my life, i'm talking about one of the fab Greetings farm Ian stamps that i've used for this card.. isn't he just adorable.
I do find mens cards quite challenging, mainly coz i don't make that many but i think this one turned out ok.
I got my great colour combo from the 'Photo Inspiration challenge' over at Basic Grey
I've used Wisteria, Marrakech and Off Beat papers.
I tarted it up with some silver coloured wooden stars and a couple of pins.
The little car is a plastic button and the wording stamp is greetings farm.
This card also fits in with the following challenges:

Nice to 'pleat' you!

Another day and another Tilda...
I know, i know, Minxy and Tilda don't usually go, but i seem to have grown a very tiny soft spot for her lately! This 'Cupid Tilda' in particular is super cute, i've coloured her with my new Polychromos {pencils by faber-castell} which i have to say are just fabby, and make a nice change from the copics, they have a lovely softness about them and blend well too.
As i had coloured a Tilda i decided to join in with the Special monthly
Just Magnolia challenge, the theme 'Paper Pleating',
For this i used some old book pages and then inked the edges to make them more visible,
I pleated in a curve to create a circle to follow the
fab sketch provided by this weeks Allsorts #34 Challenge
The papers are MME and CC and the flowers are from my stash.
Thanks for taking the time to come see my card, leave a comment so i know you came by :)

Love is in the air!

Well no sooner is the new year over and already i'm thinking Valentines!
Over at A Spoon Full of Sugar there theme this week is 'Hearts'

I used a great sketch courtesy of this weeks Inspirational Sketches #48
This is my first crafty make of 2010 and boy did it feel good to get crafting again, sad i know but true! I used a mix of BG papers, Devil Tilda was coloured with my trusty copics, but i removed her wings as i didn't like the colour i used, and i think she looks cool without them. I hand stitched some of the edges, and used a bit of heart sequin waste too. The love word was cute out on my Slice.

Gorjuss New Year

First let me start off by saying a very belated Happy New Year to all my blogland friends.
Mine didn't start very well unfortunatly waking up on new years eve with flu, and after a look on the nhs website finding out it could possibably be swine flu!!
So i've been out of action till now, but i'm slowly starting to feel human again and today is the first time i've been near the room of stash in what seems like ages.
This is a little desktop calender a started b4 i got ill and now finally managed to finish.
I found a calender template online by googling, but Splitcoast Stampers also have some fab downloads if your a member.
I coloured the girls with my copics, the only differance was the sitting girl is done on smooth graphic 160gsm paper and the other on my new 180gsm cartridge paper, which i really am loving the effect of, the colours just blend so much better, not that you can tell this from the pic {or maybe you can}
I also used one of my new MS deep edge border punches and a couple of prima and paper flowers to finish, the papers used were BG.
This project fits in with a few of this weeks challenges including:
Papertake Weekly 'New Beginnings'
Stamp Something 'New somethings'
Secret Crafter 'New Beginnings'
and a very late but just in time entry for Daring Cardmakers 'New Beginnings'
