Hello WOW !!!

A little Hello Card 

Faux Leather Background
Used paper bag and crumpled it up
Flatted it out then ripped it up to cover over the  page
Glued it all down 
Then using two different Brown inks one dark and light
went over with the dark 1st lightly 
then the lighter shade heavy handed to get it in the cracks
afterwords I used WOW embossing powder Dull 
and covered the whole thing with it
Voila Faux Leather
Used More WOW on the rest of it
Used their Stamps from "Just Saying" and "Happy Little Flower" Sets
Used Opaque Bright White to create the flowers then coloured 
them with a Crayola Pencil in Gold
The Hello is just stamped in Black with a gold ink around the edges
then embossed the whole thing with Clear embossing powder

Hi all Happy  WOYWW  I know I've been a little MIA lately but last week I was going to join in but my little furbaby Squeak passed away. We had him for 17 years and for the  week before it happened you just knew that his time was getting close, at least it happened at home so he didn't have to freak out in the car which he TOTALLY hates to be in and we had everything he liked around him and kept him on one floor so he didn't have to climb any stairs for his weary bones. We are both doing fine just find the house quiet now without a cat to trip us up (ALOT). 

So on to my space this week it's me working on a Pocket Letter I got stuck on started out okay then just can't figure out the rest it will get done eventually I'm guessing just have to figure out the top of it I start things with no clear plan I just let it evolve and see where it takes me and hope it doesn't end up in the bin. 
The Binder closest to you is my Sticker and die cuts to use for Pocket Letters just easy to flip and grab when I need something.

So I'm holding my 1st progressive challenge on Facebook for Limited Runs if you want to grab this little cutie and play along It would be fantastic. 
He'll be in the Limited Runs store for a 24hour for free (Ehmail me till the 1st if you missed out to play along)
then you can buy into the challenge for only $1.00
this progressive challenge will last for 3 months with winner or winners if we get a lot people playing along.
If you don't have facebook then you can email a link and picture to your site and I'll be happy to add you into the contest 
thanks for looking

Happy 400th post  wow has it been that long !!!

Well I've been skipping off a wee bit seeing my desk hasn't had much to show this week my desk does has a few new things on it. I've have Happy Mail instead I was lucky to have won from Kelly and I owned none of this so it's a true treat to have the magazines are going to be fun to look through seeing we can't get them really over here to much $$ just to buy one 
So I haven't looked through them yet but I shall shortly seeing I've removed the plastic and love all they papers they came with so much fun 

I'm going to go off and play with some of this and see how it all works and put it away where I need it go so I can find it all easy :)

Happy WOYWW hugs Nikki

More Smiles

I was going to make another ATC but that didn't happen at all this time it just didn't look right as one. Felt like it was missing something yep it was to small and needed to be a little card to add into a package or swap that I send off 
Sasayaki Glitter - Green
Through the purple Haze - Happy Anything
Crafting by Designs - Anything that shines
Sunny Day - AG
Through the craft room door - AG
Sparkle N Sprinkle - AG + used embossing powder

Lots of Smiles

So I forgot to post this so here it is now This could have had plenty of off wall sentiments but I barely get to use this one so how could I neglect this stamp lol
Been making ATC's up seeing I'm on a Pocket Letter Bender these days lol 
So this might go into one or not

Happy WOYWW well missed last week wasn't much going on really in my space. I have been making pocket letters or at least starting a few seeing I'm not working on a deadline I can swap them when finished. I've been enjoying the swapping part but I'm finding a lot of people use only stickers and barely any stamps or digital images. We usually have lots of that lying around to play with so when I see only stickers is it because they like to make a lot at once ? I've even made a few simple ones to swap too just so I've got extras

Have a wonderful week

Cupid's a Flying

With Valentine's Day coming up Why not send someone a little lovin and this one's just for that. I've used Cupid from Limited Runs and the Sentiment is from my stash by. The Camera just shows the little touch of glimmer on his wings and I added a touch in his hair too which was not showing the depth I wanted with only reds so I added in a little purple and voila he's got some spiky hair. I've fussy cut him out and popped him on the card seeing my sewing machine was out with I might add red thread on it how could I not use it.

Happy WOYWW 

1st Sorry I haven't been getting around lately it's been busy around here and now that things are back to somewhat normal and all the Christmas stuff gets put away. That will be around Jan 15th I like it up and I have a friend that wants to see it before it gets put away. My desk is MESSY !!!! Today a package arrived from the lovely Judy and it was filled with goodies, funny thing is I just started the Pocket letter to the left and so MUCH Matches it so I'll be putting some of this to good use soon
and Nope that's not the one my sister requested I make one for her it's underneath it hidden away
close to being done (not what she wants to hear lol)

I've been making Pocket letters up lately I joined a Canadian swap group just to keep the cost of shipping down seeing everything these days have gone up here due to the cough cough crappy gov't and their poor spending habits and they think that they  deserve a 5.5% raise this year ... NOPE !! 
Yaddy Yaddy Gov't Sucks woes lol !!!

So thanks for popping by and I should have time tomorrow to visit a bunch of peeps 
hugs Nikki
