This little fellow is from the Spooky, Spooky set that you can find here
He is coloured with promarker pens that are also available in the shop
This is a mini fold-out album and when opened up the inside looks like this:
I have matted the photo's onto green patterned paper to make them stand out and used near enough all my halloween embellishment stickers and tags I could find.
The page with the hounted house is also a pocket which holds my journaling tag, more photo's and my trickets from the venue!
Again.. Congrats to all the girls going through to the next round!! it's all getting very exciting!
Hugs, Marlene x

Right, best dash as I have to go buy some stamps ready for the first High Hopes Challenge today. I am obsessiveky checking the HH blog to find out what the challenge will be. Honestly, I don't know what is taking them so long - it is 3.30am there surely they should be up and getting the challenge on by now!!!!!

We have received a lovely big shipment of some gorgeous new stamps this morning. There are 50 different stamps in the collection and they are all totally fab. There are some lovely festive stamps as well as some fabulous characters.
And the downside? They aren't being released until Sunday so i can't show you them and you will just have to take my word for how lovely they are! I have them all ready and raring to press the active switch on the website listings as soon as they are officially released so make sure you don't miss out on Sunday.
Any super-sleuths out there might be able to work out who these exciting new releases are by but for now i am keeping them all to myself!
It looks like it is going to be a very busy and exciting weekend, with the new releases and DT call so make sure you pop back for regular updates.

Love the latest range of CC-designs stamps and couldn't wait to use this little devil!
He is coloured with promarker pens and the 'wand' (what is the correct name for this?) has been coloured seperate and touched with stickles.. then 3D'd onto the image as are both layers of the background.
The cobweb and spiders have been hand~drawn.

I will get pricing them now and will try to get them on the website this afternoon so you can watch out for them appearing here (although there is a chance I might just keep them all for myself as they are so adorable)
If you want some yummy paper, chipboard or rubons to go with them why not have a browse though our new products section and have a look at the yummy CherryArte goodies we uploaded yesterday.
Also don't forget we are still taking applications for our DT - more details here

The new Tim Holtz tickets are one of my favorite embellishments at the moment, and will do nicely for a quick sentiment.
Sarah has been coloured with Tim Holtz distress inks in 'Weathered Wood', 'faded Jeans', 'Tattered Rose', 'Old Paper' and 'Walnut Stain'.
Update on the Sarah Kay stamps, the last collection have been re-ordered and should be available again soon.. also keep your eye on the shop for the new winter/Christmas Sarah range *Ü*

I had great fun making this Portholes card with these cute High Hopes sea characters and am really pleased with how it turned out. I used twinkling H2o's to give my colouring a bit of added glimmer. These can be purchased here in the Store. Hope you like it!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Stamps: High Hopes "Diver Dan", "Findley", "Horatio" Sea Horse and "Dive Right in" sentiment.
Ink: Memories, Twinkling H2o's, Sakura Stardust
Paper: SU Designer paper "Fall Flowers, Su Bashful Blue and Chocolate Chip Card stock, Wood effect panel from an old cardboard toy box.
Embellishments: Buttons, Fibres, Charms
Equipment: Wizard, Nestabilities
I've been getting stuck into lots of shimmery and glittery goodies available from the shop :)
I've added lots of bling dots created with lime green stickles.. really giving such a 3 dimensional feel.
It will be so exciting to have someone new join Nikki and Me on the DT Team and hope you will try out for Bryony's DT Call
Really can't wait to see all the creations with the sketch provided by Nikki for the first round..
