Wednesday 12th September

I have to go to the dentist today. To have my abcess checked out, and to get some antibiotics. I hate going to the dentist Lucky that I have one mind you, but even so I really am not looking forward to it. I just want a magic wand that will make the abcess go away. No such luck, so a visit to the local torture chamber is a must. Anyway as much as I feel sorry for myself, I am sure it is of little interest to anyone else. Other than crafting related stuff its the most excitement Ive had since coming back of holiday. Other than looking through my pics.
Have had some good news I have a project coming out in Simply Cards and papercraft in October , using my favorite craft tool the Craft Robo (kisses the Craft Robo on the desk) best craft item I ever bought.
Recieved the English Paper Company Christmas paper stack as well. Its really nice have fallen very heavily for a few of the papers and the others are really nice too. I know that they will all get used for cards and scrapping projects I have to do some Christmas cards for a Magazine project with them , but I hope to have a few extra to put on here at the end of next week, and possible some Christmas gift ideas with them as well.
Anyway yesterday I promised another in the swirly paper set as a freebee download so here it is

Monday 10th Papercraft Junkies Challenge no 5

Well its Monday again and this is the 5th Papercraft Junkies Challenge.
This week is Natalie's (Natbag) turn to pick a subject - 'A to Z'
Nat says
"My challenge is called A to Z and I'd like you all to incorporate a letter or monogram in your LO/card/ATC/altered project. It can be one single letter, or a whole alphabet, and it can be about or for anyone you like - the choice is yours. "
Nice challenge nat with loads of scope for altered artists,scrapbookers and cardmakers
So here are my two examples

Both my examples are based around a monogram with a word cut out . These were both done with the Craft Robo (oh how I love my craft robo)
My favorite is the baby boy card I used the Clear Choice baby stamp set and whispers ink pads. I inked the monogram with two shades of blue then stamped the baby palm prints onto it, and used the its a boy stamp for the sentiment. I used a baby boy zipper pull by Junkitz, To finish I punched three holes wih a hole punch horizontally along right hand bottom edge. Then used the punch outs vertically on left hand edge

For the Mum card I used pink paisly patterned vellum over a dark green card base nled the monogam in pinks and stamped in black. I used pink flower brads and green permant maker from Sharpie to add the centers finished of with Amy Butler stickers.

I have as always designed a freebee paper to match the challenge so here it is

available to download here
Don t forget the winner of this weeks challenge will win a 15% discount code for Crafty Carrot
