A Fab Halloween

Hello All,

We are celebrating all thing s spooky over at Fab'n'Funky Challenges. This weeks theme is:

(so share your scare, get out you ghouls, any creepy creation)

I am Halloween mad, and get disappointed if children show up without costumes on the night, so of course invitations are a must.

Super simple, LOTV stamp inked with SU cherry cobbler and trails of cardindal red promarker, the cobweb & skull dies are from my TL Advent calendar (last year)

Please pop over and share some love with our lovely design team 

Last year I actually bought dry ice to create fog on my front lawn..........
Covered my walls in cobwebs and spiders
And did my best to scare small children πŸ’€

I will try to remember to take some Halloween piccies  and share with you. (My next door neighbour is currently the king of scares but I shall better him one year, oh yes. πŸ˜‚

Hugs & Happy Thoughts

Cosplay Update

Hello again

So after a few insane weeks of sweat, tears and recutting/sewing/shaping we are actually getting close to the finish line.
Well I can just about make it out in the distance....
We have come so far............from this
Now I'm sure your thinking is that it? No, no it isn't.
It will be ready for the last minute tweaks when Mawgan gets back from Uni in just under 2wks.
(she is literally coming home for 2 nights for this cosplay)

To this...................
Hey presto, Hatsune Miku 2019 costume complete, it has been a nightmare few month getting this made but I am very pleased with how it turned out.
It is so wonderful to see her get up on stage, no agoraphobia/anxiety to be seen. Thank god for Cosplay
She didn't win a trophy this year but ya never know what the future may hold.
I filmed the whole contest and when I've had a chance to upload it to YouTube, I share the link.

Time to start thinking about next years contest, I think Graham & I will take part next time.

We're all going on a Summer Holiday

Hello again,

We are currently taking our summer vacation over at Fab'n'Funky Challenges. But that doesn't mean we aren't all crafting....

To help you through the long summer break, here is a tutorial. If you are new to card making I hope you find this help, if your a seasoned crafter then I hope this brings you inspiration. It's also a great project for little hands.

Simple Masked Aperture

You will need a selection of inks, stamps, sticky notes, bone-folder & card blank.
Plus either a circular punch or die or hand-cutting.

Cut the mask out of the sticky note and place in centre of card front
(you can off-set it if you want)

Start with the lightest ink  and largest stamp first

Slowly moving through the different size stamps and inks

Deliberately used the smallest stamp for the darkest ink

Remove the mask

You have a nice clean centre

Finally add your favourite sentiment

The die-cut sentiment was my favourite for this particular project.

What about adding some glitter or pale blue gems?

Back soon

Games Night

So had my sister-in-law and her other half and my niece round on saturday for a family games night.

It was just too irresistible, we had to get my sis-in-law to have a go at a PS4 game called Beat Saber.

It didn't help (but was funny) when my niece start shouting her mum with one of our many Nerf guns

Not sure if my sis-in-law will ever forgive us πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Back soon with more daftness

p.s. Remember, Sister-in-Laws are for life not just for Christmas πŸ˜‚
