I wanted to show you all my new Kenny K digi, she is called Madison Attitude and I just love her.
I was asked to make a 21st card for someone who loves purple, well as it is one of my favourite colours it wasnt a hard challenge for me. This is what I came up with...................
The image as I said is Kenny K which is coloured with promarkers, the papers are ones I have had for ages I think they are Papermania. I used lace and ribbon from stach. Flowers and pearl stems are fromWild Orchid Crafts. Sentiment is LOTV and I used distress inks to shade the images.
Here is a close up of Madison.......................
I did make this card for a sketch challenge but can't remember which one so I have entered it into the following challenges...................
My Grafico - anything goes
Creative Cottage - fabulous florals (use lots of flowers)
Bearly-mine Challenges - ribbons and pearls
As always thanks for looking.

This weeks Sarah Hurley challenge was masking and oh my I did find it a challenge. I used the 2 deers from Sarah's stamp set. As my printer was broken I couldnt print out any papers so I have gone for a monochrome look and used card from stash.
I stamped the small deer first and then masked it and stamped the large deer over the top. Stamped sentiment with gold pigment ink and embossed with kaleidoscope embossing powder, then added some ribbon from stash.
Hope you like my efforts to join the challenge pop over to the Sarah Hurley Challenge Blog.

I am starting to think about next years retreat and would like your input.
I am trying to move away from Blackpool as we are struggling to get decent rooms to craft in and also I thought a change may be good.
I am trying to get some chalets and a room at Pontins for a weekend, this may be slightly more expensive than Blackpool but I will try to keep the cost down to a minimum. I plan to put 4 people in each chalet to try to reduce costs.
A couple of ideas I have had to try to cut costs are having some sort of kitty and making our own sandwiches for lunch time, so we dont have to pay a buffet (we never eat i all anyway), and maybe not doing a full craft pack (we could still have a retreat stamp).
So I have put some polls across there >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Please let me have your thoughts after all this is your retreat so if I dont know what you want I cant make it happen.

I am sorry to say that we are going to have to put the subs up to £2 a time. This is due to the fact that some months we hardly have enough people to cover the room rent and also we still have to buy the tea and coffee.
I hope everyone is ok with this. The rise will take effect from July.

The lastest meet of the crafty Devils was a two day one. Saturday was thin on the ground for people, but areallt lovely day! So I guess the rowdy crowd all attended on Sunday. Both days had great challenges. It was handbags on Saturday, with a guest challenge of shaker cards on Sunday from the lovely Jen.

As it will be nearly Christmas and also as there are loads of birthdays in November we thought we would have a night out. This means that one one of the November meets will be a 2 day meet and a night out on the Staurday night. Some people may want to stay over and we thought we could book some travel lodge rooms if 2 people share it will be about £20 each.
Can you please vote on the right hand side and let us know which weekend suits you best?

Meet is held in Blackpool and we usually use 2 Bed and Breakfast hotels, this year we will be using a separate hall to craft in as it became very cramped last year.
If you would like some more information this can be found on the DoCrafts forum or contact firstname.lastname@example.org

here are the instructions they were given
Take an envelope of any size
Seal the flap completely. You may need to use a little extra glue at the ends
Cut off the top to form the bag opening..
Score fold lines along the three sealed edges to the required size making sure they are all the same width if you have a score board this will be slightly easier. These score lines will form little squares in the bottom left and right corners.
Score these boxes in half diagonally to make two triangles, starting from each bottom corner and scoring inward.
Fold along the scored lines to form the bagelope.
The folded triangles will poke out on each side.
Fold the triangles under and glue them to the bagelope’s bottom.
Fold the top over to make a lip so that the bag is fully secure (optional).
You can seal the bagelope in many different ways.. A few options are: Velcro, double-sided tape, or file folder
Decorate as required making sure you use all of the elements included in your pack
Here are the results
and to all you ladies who didnt manage to make the meet dont worry i have a set for you which i will bring to the september meet(hope you didnt think you got out of it.)
