RUBBER DANCE STAMPS ~ September 2016

Here I am with a CHRISTMAS CARD. Actually, I've been doing a few.
Trying to get 'em done. Thanks to Margy M and her continual inspiration
over at her blog!!!
I've gone with the last mood board from March 2016 ~ the colours
worked well for a festive card!
I'd seen Becca use vellum and heat embossing for her sentiment...
so I've stamped my sentiment using that idea:
It's not that I didn't KNOW that idea. But sometimes you simply forget them!
So I was pleased to be reminded!!!
And this card SPARKLES....doesn't look it above, eh?
Tried to capture it here:
As well as this, I've been taking part in a few Face Book challenges. They seem
to be more popular these days.
SCRAPBOOKING TOP 50 has a special monthly challenge called 'The Block'.
Here's what I've done so far:
The only thing I don't like is that the photos loaded are
so small to view ~ it's hard to check out all those little details. But, I must say, it is a lot easier
than writing blog posts.
Here's the other one I completed:
Maybe Face Book challenges are the future!!!
Won't make me majorly happy ~ but I guess whatever will
be will be:)
Also, I tend to take those photos with my phone ~ much quicker to upload.
And then, the quality is CRAP when you upload them here! Aaaaah well.....
I'm also getting the KITAHOLIC KITS atm. This month's kit
was mostly 'Father's Day' orientated & it included some deer.
Well, for me - MORE CHRISTMAS CARDS is what I thought!!!
 The background silver paper is really old - funny how eventually one uses stuff!
So there y'go! I've also been doing some happy mail....& receiving some. It's such FUN!
 I've been creating vellum butterflies and hearts, then heat & dry embossing them!
 One of the 'happy mail' flair from Funky Flair Studios. LOOOOVE them!
The little word stickers I've created myself:)
 I've been enjoying going through my stash & pulling out bits and pieces that I can use!
And I know it's OVER STUFFED [!!!].... but this is my first shaker pocket that I
made for Happy Mail.....that was FUN!!!
If you're interested in finding out more, then check out the Hey Nae Daily Happy Mail
Righto..... must go before this becomes a BOOK;)
Take care now & happy scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  5. You are a machine Lizzy!!! I'm thinking you must have a coterie of helpers that magically do all the housework, the shopping, cleaning, cooking, washing and ironing and take care of all the detritus of life! Either that, or you never sleep and you beaver away all night? Happy days, your output is phenomenal! Where to start? I think my fave is the sparkly green and gold one with the white embossing. So going to give that a go. Love the enjoy the journey page with all the yummy white space. Happy mail as well, all those little pieces of Joy wending their way to the lucky recipients. Hope you are sitting down, 'cos I have started the Christmas cards here! I know! Amazing isn't it! I blame Margy this year! Sorry Marg. Anyway, raving now, must get into the s/crap room. xo
