So much going on

Well there has been so much going on at the same time.
I have been in hospital and back operation went well but have to take it easy.
But the excitement is the new equipment I have for new business.

My lovely oldest son has spent a few days with me and was able to move all my craft desk and creating bits around for me. And lift and put all equipment in the space we had made. So much new space making me wonder where all my other crafting stash has gone!!

So new business will be starting up asap. Too exciting but need to get head round website, using equipment and more use of computer and I am no tech person, but I will learn.

A bit late...

Hello everyone. I am so sorry my post is 14 days late for Crafts Galore Encore Challenge I have been in hospital having a back operation.
I am slowly catching up but having to be careful, not good advice for me as I hate sitting around doing nothing except exercises.

Over at the Crafts Galore Encore Challenge it's anything goes and we are sponsored by Whoopsi Daisy who are giving 2 sheets of digi stamps to our winner.

Yes you are seeing a design team call with us. Starting January 2015 you can have a chance of joining us. Pop over to the blog to see how to apply.

Now to my creations for anything goes. A hanging house that matches my cards that I make.

Treat or treat... Scary or Sweet...

Another month has whizzed by at Crafts Galore Encore Challenge.
This month is Trick or Treat... Scary or Sweet?

We have a great sponsor this month and we got to play with some fabulous images.

I was lucky enough to have a 'Treat' and below is my card with Colour Me Janette

I coloured the image with copic pens and added some orange organza ribbon. Her blue jeans have a gentle sparkle and a gem on her yellow shoes.

Pop over to the challenge blog and see what the fabulous design team have done with their images.

On a personal note as well pop over to Kick Starter and have a look at my new business project... Spread and Pledge with the idea. Thank you.

It's really happening

Ok... after waiting for seems like forever yet, only 3 days, we have been given the ok on Kick Starter.

Pop over and have a look at our whole new project and aims we have.
It's so hard starting up a new business that you know has potential yet finding the funds is hard.

It would be great if my blogging friends could pop over and see what it's all about, and maybe even support us.

Many thanks.

Been off doing something exciting...

Hello... Sorry I have not been around.
I have been diverting from card craft to a new business plan.

This involves my partners illustrations that he created over 4 years ago. We have been playing around with ideas of what to do with them.
They are cute and know will find a place in the market.

We are starting a Kick Starter project to try and raise funds to lift this project off the ground with products, children's books and giftware.

Kick Starter is a community based place where people pledge, in return for a product you will be making. Therefore they will be getting something first before anyone else and before it completely lifts off the ground.

This means having to tweet (not my thing) set up a new Facebook page and really try every avenue to promote it.
As yet we are waiting to be accepted by them... it's like waiting for Christmas!!

But here is my twitter account

new Facebook page for it

I do have a new blog on wordpress but as yet need to get my head around it all.

The new concept is called 'On Stalks' and here is a photo of what our mugs will look like.

We will also be bringing out Christmas ones, if we are lucky enough to reach our target and second stage target.

My love for strawberries

Well another day that has just flown by. But still have time to post a little card I created for Clean and Simple

Over on their blog they have a sketch for you to get inspired by.
I used stamping Up stamps and dotty paper.
Coloured the strawberries in two colours with pens.

Here is their sketch...

And here is my card using the sketch...

I was looking round for challenges and found this one 

They are asking you to create something which has a Halloween feel.

I have used these cute stamps that I have not used in a long time.
Love them to bits.

The costume shop has foam pads on it, just to raise it slightly from the line of merry Trick or Treaters.
The children dressed up look so cute as they are that I just added minimal colours. The ghost ones do have a touch of sparkle on them though.

A circle was punched in top right corner so that the spider, that i stamped inside, could be seen.
