Good morning to all the craftymonkeys out there! A new challenge over at Here Come The Boys Blog Challenge for you, our theme is Rocker Cards.  Not the easiest thing to make and I had never made one before, so quite nervous that it would collapse, but it didn't and I like the outcome of my card this time around.  We are being sponsored by the brilliant Bugaboo Stamps and they are offering 7 free digis to the winner, so what are you waiting for!
Get Rocking and Rolling and join in the challenge! 

Well all that is left is for me to wish you good luck in the challenge, we hope you will have a go at making a Rocker Card and come back and play.  Crafty Hugs Woo xxx

Fairytale Friday

Good morning everyone, hope you're all going to have a Craftymonkey Friday and Weekend!  
There's an air of excitement at our new oasis Minaret over at Teddy Bo & Co and I'm so excited about what we will get to play with in the coming weeks over at Teddy Bo's DT Blog!
This week we were left to play with past releases so that Teddy Bo's Gayle can fine tune her
next release of Digis!! They promise to be scrumdiddlyumptious!! 
I chose one of my favourite Teddy Bea Digis to play with, so I hope you like her too.

Not so Shabby!

Good morning to all the Craftymonkeys out there, hope you all survived the storm and blustering winds!  I got off lightly considering, we ended up with an 80ft tree crashing into the garden which my fireman son very kindly came and pulled off of my grumpy neighbours fence, like it fell there on purpose!?!  Oh Well, my Luke chopped it up and made good so well done Son!   
I really struggle with Shabby Chic, even when I try to copy what I want mine to look like but this time I just sat down with a few bits that I fancied on the card and I don't think it's too bad, not quite completely Shabby Chic, but I'm getting there!  I have bought loads of new Tilda's over the last year and I haven't had time to play with any of them, so yesterday as I was Shabby Chic pretending I thought I'd pop a Tilda in, best thing for Shabby really!!
She's so cute, I wanted to make a card for someone special and this is my effort which 
I would like to enter into the following challenge:

Teddy Bo Tuesday

Good morning to all the Craftymonkeys out there.  This week the girlies over at 
TEDDY BO & CO were given an unexpected day out in the oasis spa, but we got smashed on Turnipade celebrating the arrival of all our new Digis since our vacation ended!  So this week there are no Digis, but next week...... Wow!!! I can't wait to share them with you!!  Anyways, I decided to play with a past release image especially as Christmas is creeping up fast and I haven't even started my proper cards yet, thought this would be an ideal time to play with a Chrimbo one! So here we go.....
Hope you like her Hugs Woo xxx

Halloween over at That Craft Place

One of my favourite craft shops has a new Halloween Challenge and a DT Call going on at the moment, I can't apply for the DT as I just don't have time to take on anymore design work, but the challenge has some fantastic DT inspiration and the shops got really competitively priced stash!
and the shop

I want to enter my Halloween Gift Bag Tote into the Halloween Challenge over at That Craft Place
I've used my cameo to cut out a spiders web background and a small base with straps to complete it.  I've added a Halloween Digi from TEDDY BO & CO to finish it off.  Inside are a selection of Sugar Free treats for my friends grand-daughter who is diabetic, so she doesn't feel left out on the night out with all her friends Trick or Treating.  Hope you like it Crafty Hugs Woo xxx

Ooops!! Late Fairytale Friday!!

I completely forgot to share this with you!! Hope you've all had a good weekend, I'm still resting and recovering from my operation, so I have a little excuse for not remembering! The aneasethic fuzzled my brain with furry fog!  Hope you like my Christmas bag which I've done for someones Christmas present.  I've used my Cameo to cout out the gift bag and Bea has been coloured with copics.  Flowers are a £1 for 12 from the Range.  Hugs Woo xxx

I cut the gift bag out on my Silhouette Cameo and Coloured the Bea with Copics.

Fairytale Friday at Teddy Bo & Co

Good morning Craftymonkeys!  By the time this goes live I will have been to sleep and under the surgeons knife!  I had to have an operation yesterday afternoon and so I've been busy this week trying to get my DT cards for Fairytale Friday ready and for the launch of Oli & Molly at the TEDDY BO & CO store!  
How cute are these little Elephants and the New Teddy Bo & Teddy Bea Digis!

 I wanted to make something a little different today, so I made a gift envelope and I cut this one on my new Silhouette Cameo machine.  It's lined with paper and the gift voucher will eventually sit behind the pink paper nestled between the back of the envelope.  I hope you like it.  If I make a quick recovery I will be back later in the week with photos of the other bits I've made in advance.  Crafty Hugs Woo xxx

Teddy Bo Tuesday

 Welcome to all the Craftymonkeys out there today, I hope you are going to get your Craft Mojo on today and to help you TEDDY BO & CO have some lovely new designs on offer along with new Elephants Oli & Molly!! They're just sooooo adorable!!  I used one of the new Teddy Bea's for my card, but come back on Friday to see my make with a Molly Digi!!
  Well for me it's back to the cooler weather climbs of the UK for a while, the DT Girlies are still sunning themselves by the pool in UAE and have made some lovely examples to inspire you over at the Teddy Bo Blog, our lovely Karen has been promoted to a full DT member which is absolutely brilliant, cos she so deserves that spot!! The good bit is, as I'm back home she has to take on the duties of cleaning the Minaret whilst she's there!! Lol!!  I smuggled a stash of Turnipade home with me and I'm looking forward to some chilling time over the next 2-3 weeks in which to get ahead with all my Christmas Cards!! Yay!  Anyway this is my make today, I hope you like her It's very Pink and Lilac!! Hugs Woo xxx

Teddy Bo Tuesday

Good morning to all the Craftymonkeys!!  Fantastic news today!! Teddy Bo & Co has vacated Teddy Bo Towers and relocated us all to the wonderfully warm and exotic climates of the United Arab Emirates, we are all now living in the warm sunshine in a gorgeous Minaret in the comfy Teddy Bo's Harem, Camels for transport and Gayle has brewed some fantastic Turnipade for the DT to sip by the pool while we design our cards! My fair skin is a little crispy, especially on the soles of my feet that got a little burned, but settling in well!!  We have a lovely Guest Designer joining us for this release, the wonderful Karen O'Brien from My Crafty Cupboard, she would love to hear from you, so please welcome her to Teddy Bo and leave her a lovely comment!
 Here are the fab designs being released today in the Teddy Bo & Co Shop and you can see the gorgeous designs by my Design Teamies at The Teddy Bo Blog!

This is one of the first family christmas cards I have made using the new releases from
Teddy Bo & Co , BO is just sooooo cute!! I think he's going to be well used in the coming weeks!
Hope you like him, I have posted the ingredients for the card at the bottom. Crafty Hugs Woo xxx
