My entry for this weeks Simon Says Stamp and the challenge theme this week is 'All That Sparkles' so I have been quite liberal with the glamour dust! I have used my 'Winter Hoot' stamp which is available from Pink Gem Designs. This is quite a large stamp so a large acrylic block is needed which we also sell on our website. The image has been coloured with Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

Morning Everyone! We arrived from a warm and Sunny Spain yesterday afternoon to a damp and drizzly UK.........and the central heating is not working :(
Never mind it is nice to be back really......... I will be going to collect little Gem from the kennels this morning.....can't wait to see her! She usualy goes mad and licks me to pieces lol!
Anyway I am running a little competition.......we went to Spain but can anyone guess the resort by looking at the photo? I will leave the competition open for one week...... any one who gets the correct resort will be entered into a draw to win two Pink Gem Design stamps of their choice (subject to availability) Only one entry and one resort guess allowed per person!
Good Luck! x COMPETION NOW CLOSED!

My first attempt at a 'Sketch & Stash' Challenge using 'Christmas Denny' which is available from Pink Gem Designs....isn't he a sweetie! I have coloured Denny with distress inks and added glamour dust for a touch of Christmas sparkle!
This will probably be my last card for a couple of weeks as I am going away soon......and have got so much to do!
I am hoping to go to the NEC on the 7th November (as a shopper) so if anyone else is going drop me a line! I know the wonderful Tab is going and I would so love to meet her! I will try and get over my 'fear of driving on strange motorways/roads' for just one day lol! X

Sprinkles has been coloured with distress inks with glamour dust added for a touch of sparkle to the fur on her clothes. The coregated card is made by Inkcraft.

My Entry for this weeks Friday Sketchers & A Spoon Full Of Sugar ( Christmas). I have used my 'Teddy & Mistletoe' stamp which is one of the new Christmas/Winter releases from Pink Gem Designs. I have watercoloured the image with Tim Holtz Distress Inks, with a touch of glamour dust on the fur on her gloves. I made a bit of a clanger by painting the mistletoe berries red instead of leaving them white..... didn't realise until after I had finished painting........must have been in another world lol.........never mind!

Please don't buy stamped images of our designs from Ebay/websites. The people responsible for this are breaking our copyright and are acting illegaly. For some reason Ebay turn a blind eye to this practice but we will not! We have worked hard to build our business and a lot of time and effort goes into producing the designs. It also costs a lot of money to have the stamps manufactured. We are quite happy for you to sell cards you have made using our stamps.... if you have any questions read our Angel Policy which is on our website. If you ARE thinking of buying our stamps to sell as stamped images on ebay or any where else then please think carefuly because we WILL take legal action if we have to!
