Day 9 of 31 Days of Halloween

I am well and truly failing this year! You know those months where if it can go wrong it will? Yup I'm having one of those. I am having to try and blog from my phone and tablet after taking my pc apart, I will get it fixed at some point I hope!

The yesterday I was all ready to sit and create ready to share and my washing machine decided that it would be much more fun to empty a full load of water all over the floor rather than just drain it down the pipes. the washing machine was fulled out and after some fixing and trouble shooting I decided I was onto a losing battle and went to buy a brand new one.

Now before you say "but you could have got someone in to fix it cheaper" let me tell you I've had that machine for a few years, it was second hand and £30 from eBay when my old ancient machine gave up on me and I just needed a cheap option while I looked for a new one. It was the best £30 I had ever spent and it did exactly what I needed it to for longer that I expected…

Day 6 of 31 days of Halloween

I'm sorry I didn't get a post up yesterday, I have picked up a viral infection and was feeling awful yesterday, still don't feel great but I certainly feel better than I did.

Today I am sharing an ATC I've made using stamps and paper from Stampin' Up!


Day 4 of 31 Days of Halloween

Image
Today I've actually got a real hand stamped piece to share rather than digital work, I was away over the weekend so I decided to make a few digital pieces to keep me going until I got back.

So my make for today is a page from a book I am starting to alter to swap with my wonderful friend Susan.

After months without really crafting or blogging I did debate missing out on this, but I've not missed on since I found Smeared and Smudged so I'm not going to miss one now. 
I've got a digital piece to share today, this has been made in craft artist using Smeared Inks Cranium.

March Family of Macarbe Stampers Blog hop

Image
Today is the first monthly blog hop with the members of the Family of Macabre Stampers group.

Unfortunately what I had planned to make has had to take a back seat thanks to the norovirus that hit my house a couple of weeks ago.
What I have made instead is a little tag using stamps from the Smeared Ink rubber set Jack.


 Please hop along and leave some love for everyone else

New Beginnings with IWC

It feels good to be back in the swing of things again, today's make is my DT piece for Ikes World Challenge. I have used Sadness Walls for my tag which I've journalled on.

I do hope you will join us with our challenge.


Anything POES with Quoth the Raven

Image
Our first challenge of the year has started at Quoth the Raven, the theme is anything POES so we want to see your dark makes with the Man himself on there somewhere. I have altered a little box for my piece.

I started by painting it all black, then when it was dry rubbed over some antique gold rub'n'buff. I then used some papers from Smeared Ink and 2 stamps from Smeared Ink, Poe and the skull to add to the paper that I used on the front. To finish it off I added a couple of stickers in the shape of the brackets and a bit of washi tape from Stampin' Up!






I would like to enter this into the following challenges: http://leftofcenterchallenges.blogspot.co.uk/ - The stickers are new A step in the darkhttps://www.facebook.com/groups/629105100496386/

First post of the year!

Happy New year everyone!
I have been rather quiet on here for a little while, I needed to take a bit of time to catch up with myself, get on top of my Uni studies and generally take a break from things. The card I am sharing today is going to be posted off to a Facebook friend tomorrow. The stamp I have used is called Pretty Poppy and can be found in the ArtiDoodles store here



I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
http://deliciousdoodleschallenge2.blogspot.co.uk/ - The card and papers have been in my stash for at least 3 years! This is the Year to use it or lose it :D http://ourdailybreaddesignsblog.blogspot.co.uk/ - Old is all the stash I used, New is the new friendship with the person the card if for(hoping that counts)
