Love 'em at work

Yes, it truly has been over a year since I have posted, yikes where has the time gone?  So many changes in the last year, one being location which unfortunately doesn't give me room for my crafting!  I truly hate cleaning up after a day of crafting only to have to pull it out and start all over again.  Okay, enough of my whining ...

I work with an amazing group of gals and I wanted to give them something special to celebrate Valentine's Day.  I put on my baking hat and whipped up a batch of sugar cookies and while they were baking, I started card creating.  I wanted something clean and simple so I used these mini-valentine images by Whimsie Doodles.  Apologies for the rough looking pictures, forgot to take pics at home with a nice background so I had to quickly snap them at work.




They were quick and fun to create and they looked adorable with the bagged sugar cookies.

Thanks for stopping by and hopefully it won't be another year before I post again!

12 Days of Christmas

Oh my gosh, it's been 5 months since I've posted anything!  We recently moved so all my goodies have been packed away and I have just recenlty had a chance to dig everything out and wow did I miss creating!

Since I ran out of time last year and didn't send one card, I decided to keep my cards CAS so I wouldn't get so overwhelmed.






These cards were made from the 12 Days of Christmas stamp set by Penny Black.  I adore this stamp set and really love how these cards turned out!



Challenges:

Christmas Card Challenge - CAS
DREAM it up - Quick and Easy

Numbers Challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge

Another fab challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge .... the theme is N for Numbers!  Show us numbers somewhere in your creation to be in the running for a wonderful prize from our sponsor All Dressed Up!  The winner will receive 2 digis of their choice!

With this challenge come some sad news, this will be my last challenge as part of this amazing Design Team.  I have enjoyed the ride and have met some amazingly talented ladies along the way.  I will miss them all!



This adorable image is A Star is Born by All Dressed Up, isn't it the cutest!  I had very little supplies to finish this card as 99% is packed just waiting for moving day but I scrounged around and found some twine and a bell, woo hoo!

Now it's your turn to show us the Numbers!  Have Fun!


Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters, in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends. I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors.
I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork.
Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers .
All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping.  The coordinators Marilyn and Tracy along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls.
We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies. The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis. We really are friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.
