Another Saturday means another great challenge waiting for you at Sweet Stampin'.
This weeks it's.....Yee Ha.....Cowboy/Cowgirl Theme. Our sponsors are Crafts U Love.
I like this one as I have two great stamps from Nellie Snellen, it gives me chance to use them, and I have done just that....Used them both!
I decided to make a couple of Big Tags using the Cowboy and the Indian. (Did you ever play this game when you were younger?) I was always an Indian on foot being chased by Cowboys on bikes....How's that fair!! Gosh that was a long time ago now, still remember it tho'.
I started with Craftwork Cards Tags and used some leftover papers from my box to cover them. I have stamped the set of Grunge Stampin' Up stamps on top of the papers and finished with the images which I coloured with Pro-Markers and some red twine.

Wow it's challenge time again at Sweet Stampin', so without further ado (don't you just love daft sayings like this!)
Here is this weeks card.
The Theme is actually a "Photo Inspiration" from Team Mate Judy's holidays, just look how sweet it is.
You can interpret this photo as you wish but please remember we are a Stamping Challenge, so some Stamping required please!
Our sponsors this week are close to my heart (love 'em) "Hobby House".
I use the products Jill from Hobby House brings us all the time, and their website with gorgeous goodies can be found here:
I have a little white paper Gift Bag for this weeks challenge. (I thought I would use this as there is a little bag hanging from the handlebars of the bike!)
I enjoy making these and they always sell well at my Craft Fairs (talking of which, I had one a couple of weeks ago and did really well)
I have started with a white bag from Samuel Taylors shop at Skipton (Ooo one of my favourite shop, it's a fab place for Crafting, beads, material and wool all under one roof, a link to their website is here:)
I then used a sheet of Dotty Heidi Grace paper, and a panel from a Pad of Heartfelt Creation's Paper, this pad is gorgeous.
I have Stamped and Embossed a Sentiment by Paper Smooches. The wee Owl Stamp was free on a Magazine a few weeks ago. Ribbon is from my stash, flowers were stamped and coloured with Pro-Markers (these were free on the Stamp set too). The Doily is from the Range.
The border is one of my Martha Stewart punches.
Sorry about the hideous photo!

Don't even ask where I have been.....This working lark is a nightmare!!
It might have only been a full weeks work, but it might has well have been a years!!
I much prefer working from home.....Eh! Durr... No brainer.
Anyway's I am back in Blog Land, unfortunately I also now in Facebook land (not liking it much tho', just don't get it! What's with all the complete and utter rubbish shared!!! Help someone, please say it will get better.
I am busy making several of my big Kasercrafts Advent Calenders, so they taking up quite a lot of time. I have not really had any time for anything else since my week at Summer School.
I can show you a couple of photo's of what the children made, and then get back to you later with photo's of my Crafting.
