New Release from Funky Hand

There's another set of fab releases over at Funky Hand this weekend.  Three new monster digis and Hairy and Scary Papers which are so funky with lovely greens, oranges, yellows and purples and the digi stamps are so fun and great to colour.
Hope you are having a great weekend- I'm looking forward to being snuggled on the couch tonight in my jammies watching X Factor and I'm a Celebrity then off to bed as I'm working tomorrow but looking forward to a couple of days off during the week.

Delicious Doodles - No DP

No Designer paper is the challenge this week at Delicious Doodles
I used a stamp to do my background and then just plain black card, some black and white snowflakes and this gorgeous wintery image Katarina from Teri.
Certainly cold now - hoping the snow keeps away for a while yet and doesn't end up as bad as the forecasters are predicting as I hate having to drive in it.
Hows the Christmas shopping going ? I've got quite a lot of mine done just three to get and a few bits  and pieces and have been getting on with my Christmas cards too- which is not like me, it usually takes me ages to get into the Christmas mode and am usually just getting there and then it's all over and done with.
Feel as if I must be forgetting something massive as I'm not usually this organised!!!!

I was asked if I would review Thermomorph and I said yes and was duly sent a big mahoosive tub , it will last for ever and ever.

The tub is full of tiny little pellets that you soak in hot water then they become pliable - you don't get awfully long before it starts to set but the great thing is if you mess it up or it starts to harden then just plop it back in the hot water.

I think it would be ideal if you had any silicone moulds to put it into as when it sets it is solid and will be great for making long lasting 3D embellishments, I have lots of plans in my head- keyrings, fridge magnets etc- just need the time to actually have a good play with it.

You can paint it when solid or use dies and you could probably add glitter too.

So what did I make?

Well after a good few tries I made a flower embellishment and used some cream paint to colour it- at least now I have an idea how to make them so the next one should be better and I will have more time to paint it too.

Would say it well worth the cost of £19.95 per tub as it will last for a very long time and will be ideal to make more flowers to decorate boxes etc  and could even add a loop at the bottom of the flower for ribbon to thread through to wrap round a present- note to self...make some Christmas flowers oooh or even snowflakes for all my pressies.......

Charisma Cardz- Vintage

This week at Charisma Cardz the theme is VINTAGE, so I embossed a little holder with a lovely butterfly embossing then added this cute image from our sponsor this week Stamp Fairy, added some ribbon and a flower and cutesy sentiment.
What a bit of a disaster I had with because I couldn't find what I had done a while back for this one so had to quickly make something as I was running late  so am sorry that this is a rushed job this week from me.
The the batteries in the camera ran out and the ones I had never worked- though I did manage to take this photo before it died again- that's what i get for trying cheap batteries.... off to the shops then for some duracell!

Delicious Doodles- Remembrance

Remembrance/Thinking of You is this weeks challenge at Delicious Doodles
I used the lovely Remembrance image and  coloured using pro markers teamed it up with K & Co papers
Hope you can join in with us this week
Still can't find a thing in my shiny new craft room, it's like looking for a needle in a haystack every time I go to make something and I think I will wear the doors out with all this constant opening and shutting I have to do to find anything, but I did find Christmas stuff so best crack on with that then, it will be here we know it.
