Winners are Grinners!

Well, what can I say, I have had the most awesomely scrappy weekend/month. Of late, I seem to have had a lucky streak-maybe 2009 is my year after all!I have been sinking my teeth into some different things of late- trying to learn some new techniques and spread my scrappy wings. In the process of this, I have come across some amazingly talented sites, and some really friendly people too. Thanks to all of you lovely people out there! One of those is Rachel Greig, who owns DARKROOM DOOR. I won a stamp set from her a few weeks back, The Wilderness Collection Vol 2, and finally gotthe chance to make a card with the set! This is my card for the Cuttlebug Challenge for this week- you have to use Kraft, black and white/ivory. Oh, and your Cuttlebug too! Also, you had to do a clean and simple card- I think I managed that with this one- Love the way it turned out, and I think you could use it for a ladies or mens card.Love the stamps!! Thanks again so much Rachel!
Jacob celebrates his birthday today, and I made him this clock, to put on his computer desk. I didn't think at the time that the computer already has the time on it...doh! Oh well, he liked it- I made it ages ago, and have had it hidden so he didn't find it:)

Look at the GORGEOUS RAK that the beautiful Renae sent me!I love it!!!!!She also gave me some yummy lace , which I have already started to use. Thanks Renae- you made my day, love ya!!!!

Over the weekend, Sarah from Inkurable Stampers had her Cyberstamp. I finished the projects,yay! This is challenge number two, which you had to use 5 stamps to complete. This is my first attempt at an accordian card- it looks cute, but I think I will try to be more arty on my next one,lol! Love the super cute Easter stamps though:)

We also had to make a TWINCHIE. A twinchie is a two by two inch creation. I used some Tim Holtz inks I have had for ages( and never used until recently*blush*) and a Lucy's Stamp locket stamp for this one. They are lots of un, and I can see myself making MANY more to come,lol!I figure this one I can use on a crad, or a scrapping layout somewhere- limitless really~!

Last share for today, but by no means my layout for the first challenge for BLACK MAGIC SKETCHES for April. Awesome sketch to work with, and the colours you need to use are Black, with red, green and blue. Go check out the blog if you haven't already- lots of inspiring ladies on there!!! With two sketches each month,that's another two in your album!!! I used up things from Aleisha's school year so far- her award for tryin hard in P.E, a painting, and her name that she wrote. I really treasure these little things, and thought in years to come, she will look back on this page, and remember all the things she did in Prep.
Well, best be off, the housework is calling, and I know we don't have any housework fairies living here,lol! Take care, and thanks for stopping by!!!:)
