Christmas Fun

Hello happy crafters
So this week we are having a just for fun week over at Fab'n'Funky challenges. We would like to see your brand new

"Christmas Creations"

Yes, that time of year is quickly approaching and we are all frantically checking our christmas lists are complete, the turkey is ordered, uncle Bob's favourite cushion is plumped, aunty Gwin's favourite tipple is in the cupbaord and of course that we have enough wrapping paper to cover a cathedral.

As I searched through my stamps collection for seasonal inspiration I rediscovered this little chap
Unfotunately this will also be the last time he ever gets used. I have owned him for over 6 years and he sadly fell into a couple of pieces after I stamped his image 3 times (cried like a baby). I shall of course be scouring the internet to find him as he is one of my favourite stamps (doesn't help I lost his packaging).

So for the finally time here is Santa's Little Helper
Such a cute little face

Please pop over and give our lovely design team some seasonal cheer.

Fantasy time

 For some reason this post never went live, but unlike a few of my other posts this one has popped back up in my posts section. Hurray, so although it is a a little late I thought I would still share it with you. It had been scheduled to go live on 7 Nov 18.

So we are having a fantasy time over at Fab'n'Funky challenges

"Fantasy Figures"

So fairies, mermaids, goblins, trolls, monsters, dragons or superheros.
(But not Santa, elfs or rudolf please.) 

Our lovely sponsor this week is

I used Peekaboo Angel - Here
Of course she has glittery wings, what angel wouldn't (even a fallen one)

Also some fab new pens that work get on darker colours

Please pop over and share some love with our lovely team

Here is my very quick and simple greetings note

All Creatures Great or Small

So I'm back from a lovely long weekend in London.
We visited the Natural history museum, V&A museum and of course the Science museum (Mawgan refused to go to the science museum with us, so we had to geek out on our own).

The Natural History Museum is a must visit and it also ties in nicely with this weeks challenge theme over at Fab'n'Funky Challenges
All Creatures Great or Small

(anything from the animal kingdom, so insects,
birds, fish. But it has to be real life NOT mythical.
Yes my hippogriff was upset too 😁 ) 

So without further ado, here is my creature creation
A quick and easy card, I offset my layers and used minial colouring. This allowed the lovely rainbow organza ribbon to pop. (stamp - LOTV Blowing Bubbles, Ribbon- from inside new clothes, Dye - TL lacy daisy).
I apologise for the photo, I misplaced my phone and little camera so grovelled to my daughter to snap a shot on her phone and send it to me.

Nip over to the Fab'n'Funky blog and leave our lovely team some good vibes
Back soon

Exploding Box

Hello lovely crafters,

Firstly an apology for no post about last weeks challenge, that is the third time I have totally lost a scheduled post (technically I'm typing this one and hoping it one goes live and doesn't vanish)

This week over at Fab'n'Funky challenges we are busting with excitement for our challenge which is

Exploding Boxes

We want to see what wonderful creations you can come up with.

Here is my take on this weeks challenge
It is multi-layered with pockets for inspiring notes and happy thoughts
As well as just good old-fashioned some loveliness

The most important thing about this challenge and all our challenges -  is to have fun.
Pop over to the Fab'n'Funky Blog and see the lovely creations the team have come up with.
Remeber to leave them some good vibes

Back soon
Hugs & Happy Thoughts

J-Con 2108

Hello from J-Con 2018 here in sunny Derby, UK.

This is the 11th annual convention and is growing in strength each year.
When it started 11 years ago virtually no one entered the cosplay competition (fancy dress of a character from anime/game/film), those of you how have followed my blog will know my youngest daughter joined the cosplay world dressed up as Miku,

but it is only the last 4 years that cosplay has become a major part of the event in Derby and very proud to say that this year the standards were amazing.
 My youngest in her (female) Jak costume (Jak and Daxter game), I spent the last 3 days frantically  creating this outfit and I'm pretty proud of the way it turned out.
She is standing the with what I can only describe as the most amazing cosplay costume I've seen yet. This gentleman spent 3 months creating this foam-based costume based on a Fall Out 4 character. More amazingly this was his first attempt at a foam-based costume.

But I will share you more tomorrow

Hugs & Happy thoughts
Buffy xx
