We are lucky enough to be sponsored this week by Peachy Keen Stamps

and the lucky winner will receive a $25.oo shopping voucher, mmm I wonder how I can win, oh yeah thats right I'm not allowed to.

We have THREE Guest Designers this week.
Aunty Sue's second week with us was postponed until now, and then we have two lovely ladies Lil Sis (a.k.a. Becky) and Gry-Heidi so please pay their blogs and visit and leave them a comment in appreciation of their hard work.

Used to Make this card were
Image - Camera from High Hopes Stamps
Manga Girl from Sugar Nellie
Coloured with - Copics
DP - Bearly Mine Designer Vol III
Also used cuttlebug, cuttlebug ties, and a whispers marker for the faux stitching.
I feel I've been a bad blogger these last couple of weeks as we've had the tattie holidays and had so many things on, that I've just not been around as much as I would like, hopefully normal service will be resumed soon.
Anyway I'm looking forward to visiting all your blogs this week and seeing what creations you come up with

Manga Christmas

I thought as Stampin for the weekend doesn't resume normal service until next Friday, yes girls Friday 9th October, we are back with all guns blazing next Friday mark your calenders and diaries and be sure to join in again, it'll be great to see you all back taking part in the challenges, that I'd share this card with you,

It all came about after a visit to a friend whois also a crafter and she was having problems getting her measurements to work out, so all the way home in the car it was playing in the back of my mind, so that evening I put the boys to bed and this is what I came up with, worked it all out by myself, (never thought of actually looking on line for the measurements until hubby said why didn't you just search for it) ah well it worked and I had fun.

Used to make this card were

Card - Local Papermill factory outlet
DP - DCWV Christmas Wishes
Images - Manga Christmas characters from Sugar Nellie.
Coloured with -Promarkers
Also used, Cricut, Ribbon and Stickles.
Hope you like, I was rather chuffed with the finished card.
