Vicki also had some candy up for grabs which I entered earlier on in the week here is another card which has "pins and needles"
I used an image given to my by Jill "thank you" I coloured her with watercolour pencils and sewed the corners to keep it in place. The pins were a bit awkward and had pearl beads on them, the backing paper is K&Co and the flower is from my stash.
EDIT - if you are wondering why she has funny coloured trousers, it is because they are dirty :) or maybe I used the wrong colour and had to make up an excuse :)
I have just won Vicki's blog candy challenge, YAY, her Daughter Yasmin picked the winner and it was me :) "Thank you Yasmin and Vicki"

I did what I normally do, scan over a post without reading it properly and the challenge is pins and needles, so like a shot I got thinking and thinking and thinking again and all I could come up with is this card, well I have just reread Vicki's challenge (this time concentrating) and the challenge is
"So what do you have to do I hear you ask?????
Well the title of my challenge is called Pins & Needles. I would like to see cards made using some decorative pins and some sewing. "
Now as you can see I have done no sewing or decorative pins, oh hum at least I tried :)

The candy runs until 1st October
While I am on, I am having problems logging into my groups account for SBS9 on yahoo so be patient with me please :)
Debbie has done this sketch and I must say I really enjoyed making this card, the image was given to me by Jill (love it xx) I coloured it with sakura glaze pens and some glitter glue, the paper is from funky fairys "chocolate covered christmas" which I downloaded the other day and "yummy" they have some gorgeous papers in it. The rest of the bits were from my stash

This is my 1st whiff of joy card and I must say I am in love with charlotte and charlie, the lovely Denise gave me this image and Jill has also given me some so I am a very happy bunny at the moment, just a bit scared to colour them in case I make a mistake, I am like that with all the images that everyone is so lovely to give me :*)
She does look nicer in real life, I have coloured her with sakura glaze pen and glitter glue and layered onto winter wonderland paper, the sentiment is from craftwork cards and the flower is from flora doodles

Thanks for looking xxx

Thanks again for everyone who entered :)

Michelle organised a secret sister swap (thank you Michelle) and this is my parcel, there are loads of images, some photo anchors, brads, adhesive stones, ribbon, flowers, clips, a pink brilliance ink pad (which I have aready used :) and last but not least a gorgeous card. I do have an inkling of who my secret sister is because she has stamped it on the back of the card :), but lets just say I will let her off in her condition ;) can you all guess who it is now :) Thank you so much I really am chuffed to pieces :)
The first package I opened was from Jill, WOW there are some fantastic images and I don't have any of the stamps myself (and soooo many too) and such a gorgeous card, thank you :)
My second package that I opened was more images this time from Denise, and WOW again there are some gorgeous images, and again I don't have any of these stamps myself, thank you so much Denise
The backing papers are papermania and the sentiment is from penny black. the rest is just bits from my stash.
I will be doing another post later on tonight showing you goodies that arrived in the post today, 2 lots of images from Jill and Denise and my secret sister package from..... (well lets just say I have a very good idea but I will let you make up your own mind ;) )

OK here goes, I was cleaning out my craft room last night and stumbled upon a box of stamps, OOOohhh I thought these look interesting, on closer inspection I noticed they also looked very clean and in very crisp packaging. Now you can imagine my horror to say the least when I come to the conclusion that none had ever been used (huge blush). I wouldnt mind but my list of wanted stamps is huge at the moment and I have these and not used them, I should be ashamed of myself and I am :)
There I have said it, its true what they say "a problem shared is a problem halved" now I can go and buy more :)
I do have a card to show but you will have to wait a few days to see it as it is part of a secret sister swap that Michelle organised, but hopefully I will have some others to show you tomorrow.

I have only just got round to you all, boy have you been busy :) and how envious am I with all your new stamps, I am loving the charlotte and charlie - whiff of joy stamps but it looks like I have to wait for those to come back in stock :( and the new forever friends stamps are so cute too, ahhh well, I am sure I will get them eventually.
Now back to my card :) the image is from Michelle "Thank you", this is for my brothers birthday, he loves the guitar so I thought it was ideal, the papers and button brads are from my stash
